    I think it’s safe to say you have no excuses if you lose to me this week in our RCL match up JB. Kawhi looks like he’ll be back Friday for you. Me? I’m now down Durant, Oladipo, and apparently Calderon for 3 weeks now. My team is getting crushed before the first match up is even half over!

      @A Hill O’ Beans: Haha I gave Jobu his rum and it cleared my fantasy-injury hexes! Now only to fix the Panthers!

    Hey guys. Would you drop KCP, P. Bev, Stuckey, or A. Bradley for MKG?
    Thanks!

      @Henry: Bradley I would, not the other guys. Any time!

    My guys are dropping like flies. By the time MCW, Calderon, Jimmy Butler and Geore Hill come back, I could be in a big hole.

      @TheMuppetManiac: Butler should be soon, I have no trouble dropping George Hill with his “at least 3 weeks” timetable.

    Thinking of making a trade: my Kemba and Gortat for his BJ and Al Jef. Jennings is doin terribly so far and I’m thinkin the other team will like the upgrade at their PG position with Kemba. If this works out, I could flip BJ for Oladipo on the wire.. I know Al is the best player here, but am I giving up too much here? The deal may not even work – dude’s got a boner for Big Al!

      @Lasandro: Who doesn’t have a boner for Al! Yeah I’m totally for that, this is the 8-teamer right? Love getting the better guy in the deal in the shallower the league

    14 team H2H drop Otto Porter for Perry Jones? Would be giving up my 3rd ranking on waiver wire for a swap of reserves???

    • JB Gilpin

      @Dirk’s Digglers: Yeah I’m fine with that move, Jones has some potential and I def am out on Porter.

    I’m kind of sad that Ibaka didn’t step up tonight and it was perry. I really hope Ibaka plays more aggressively and shoots more…He also didn’t have a single block tonight!

    • JB Gilpin

      @hanns: Yeah me too as an Ibaka owner everywhere. I think the Thunder are in some real disarray, let’s hope Ibaka can handle some defensive focus.

    Just dropped Beverley and picked up Perry Jones with the news about Westbrook’s fracture in my 10-teamer.

    Hoping for a high usage rate for Jones while KD and WB are out!

      @decaf: Ummm, I dunno that’s a close one. still no timetable for Pbev, but yeah in a 10-teamer, PBev is towards the end of your bench anyway, I don’t mind it. He def has a big opportunity!

      • decaf says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Yeah, it’s a tough call, but I’m up against active streamers, and waiting for both R-Jax and Beverley is gonna cost me games played. I’m ready to pounce on PBev though once Jones fizzles out.

          @decaf: Nice yeah that sounds good.. Man does RJax’s value rise!

    Hi JB, would you drop J.J. Redick for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Wen: Yup! Yeesh JJ looked awful tonight…

    Hey Guys,

    Super deep 20-tm league. 8-cat. You advise holding on to Austin Rivers given that only oft-injured Gordon is in front of him?

    Also: do you think Malcolm Thomas could have some low-end value in this deep of a league? Only oft-injured Mbah a Mute in front of him as backup to Noel. I basically feel like taking a lottery ticket in the Sixers front court could lead to low-end value. Thomas had 9 and 8 tonight in limited minutes.

    What do you think? Thanks!

    One other one guys, sorry: would you drop Marcus Morris for Perry Jones in 12-tm, 9-cat Roto dynasty? Feels like pj3 is short term value while Morris could hold value over the course of the season. I’m not hurting in the short term so I’m a little inclined to keep Morris and see if he stays in the starting lineup. But pj3 is obviously must own.

    What do you think? Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Jon: Yeah Rivers should definitely be owned! I have him in my 20 teamer, enjoying the minutes right now – if either Jrue or Gordon gets hurt he should have a big role.

      Someone on the Sixers – Thomas or Davies – maybe will be good, but I’m not huge on them, both should probably be owned though.

      For the 12er, yeah I’d grab Jones for the upside, PJ Tucker is coming back too to take some marcus minutes. Any time man!

      • Jon says:

        @JB Gilpin: yo just one follow up: how do you view Malcolm Thomas vs Tarik black? Black could be in for big mins if Howard goes down (already minor injury). Black or Thomas in 20-tm?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Jon: I’d take Thomas, and hope no REL players are reading (our 20 team deep dynasty), I have a tiny bid on. Black is a raw rookie, yeah he might start, but I don’t see as much upside there.
