    Hey guys,

    I’m streaming Copeland now, but do you think I should pick up Giannis off the waiver wire and hope that he gets playing time down the road? I know you guys are big Giannis fans, but I’m worried about Kidd’s rotations.

    Thanks!

      @AC: Yeah I would unless you were in dire need of Cope’s treys. We talked Giannis up on today’s pod too!

    Hi boys!
    What do you think about KJ McDaniels?
    I´m in dinasty. I take it now for not to loose him or must I wait to see something else?
    Thanks

      @Vidalchow: Yeah I would still hold in a dynasty, I’m not his biggest fan, but getting more minutes and might as well start at some point over the crap they’re rolling out there haha. Any time!

    which side do you like better pau gasol + mozgov for kmart + zack randolph. 10 catg(dd)

      @LightSpeed: League size? It’s close, I’d probably want Gasol in a shallow league since he’s best in the deal, maybe other side in deeper

    another question – basketball monster is on a membership based subscription. i dont want to pay for fantasy analysis. any website recommendations where i can get the same info for free? sorry, im a cheapo!

      @hamtime: I’m cheap too man, why i don’t use them! Basketball Reference has good stat breakdowns, but nothing too fantasy based

    Let’s see, on my RCL team we’ve got Durant, Oladipo, Calderon that haven’t played a game yet. I had picked up Roberson (move #1 for the week), he got hurt 5 minutes into his first game, so had to replace him (move 2). Amir is out, so I had to drop him (move 3) just to fill out my starters. Jonas just got a friggen facial contusion and will not return. I have to hold just cause im gonna be out of moves anyway so i might as well wait. This is my team, I s#it you not!

    My REL team? My $32 Roberson I got the same 5 minutes, I’ve got Jonas there too, and O’Quinn.

    Your Hansborough buy could be huge JB since he may be the only big left for the Raps, ha. I just heard Perry Jones, who left with a sore knee earlier, won’t be returning. Not only are the Thunder becoming extinct, but now they’re injury problems are becoming contagious. That team is cursed this year!

    Oh wait, while I’m writing this Reggie Jackson just limped off holding his knee and he’s getting looked at. Doesn’t look good. What happens if they can’t field 5 guys? I’m joking, but only sort of….

      @A Hill O’ Beans: Hahaha this hasn’t been your year thus far! Yikes.

      Whew, OKC has no one! I didn’t see much upside for Telfair long term, but man, might have to play! That buy in REL was solid. Jackson coming back though. Hansbrough was pretty far down in my priority, so lucky that worked out.

      • A Hill O' Beans says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Jackson’s back in but, he’s barely even bending his knee and had to be helped up after getting fouled a moment ago. Lots of limping going on now.

        Who’ve they lost now? Durant, Westbrook, Lamb, Morrow, Perry Jones, Roberson, McGary. Plus Jackson is barely holding on. What are we, a week into the season? That is insane, unprecedented maybe!

          @A Hill O’ Beans: Yeah man this is ridiculous! I’m watching OKC too, Jackson is playing a gutty ass game. Serge looks incredible

          • A Hill O' Beans says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: What do you do when you’re running out of guys? If your Telfair apparently you smack Hansborough in the face and get ejected, lol.

            Serge looks great, and I can’t believe OKC can even stay within 20 with the lineup they’re putting out there.

              @A Hill O’ Beans: Hahaha yeah that was hilarious. Serge is gonna have to carry em! Kept up with TOR virtually the whole game

    Hi guys,

    I just dropped Perry Jones for Elfrid Payton in my 10-team 9-cat H2H League. Even without his recent injury, it seems that PJones has lost a ton of usage with RJax back.

    I’m also thinking of letting Draymond go, but I’ll need another SF for the slot. Would you drop him for either MKG or Giannis? Which one?

    Back in my Roto league, I’m already feeling a little pang of regret about the trade looking at Pau’s line. Double-double with 2 blocks, can’t ask for more than that. But then I look at Kemba’s stats, and while I like the 3s, I’m already looking forward to getting rid of him, hahaha.

    You guys are doing an awesome job, keep it up!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @decaf: Ummm, Draymond vs. Giannis is close, I think I might hold for now. Thanks man, thanks for stoppin by!

    Someone dropped Wiggins. Who’s the drop if any?
    Asik
    IT2
    Sloan
    Perry Jones
    Or Wroten
    I’m not dropping any other players… Wiggins isn’t getting the run tho. What’s JB Say?
    Plus this is 12 cat H2H FTM FGM TO TW I need to know before Thursday if I should use my #2 waiver claim Thanks MAN

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bye Felicia: Yup I’d def use it, I’d drop Jones who might miss a few with that bruised knee he got tonight. Any time!

    in a keeper league, theres a guy interested in lebron FOR dirk and either wiggins or jimmy butler. have to give him any of those two for lebron right?

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      @whattoddo: Yeah I’m giving any of those two with Dirk for the King. Hurry before he sobers up. I’d offer Wiggins over Butler myself. Butler is getting the run out the gate, Wiggins might have growing pains being a rook

      • whattoddo says:
        (link)

        @Bye Felicia: haha yeah thats what i thought. it’s a keeper and wiggins is a nice price, but who knows if/when he ever develops

    • whattoddo says:
      (link)

      @whattoddo: he’s also interested in lebron for dirk + batum. batum’s just been too average and never scores, even if he was isn”t lebron the better get?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @whattoddo: I think Batum has nice days ahead, I personally would do the Dirk/Butler for BronBron. I like what I’ve seen from Wiggins for liking him long term since you have him at a good price

    In a 10 team points style H2H league. I have Giannis and I’m getting close to dropping him. He’s giving me a measly 14.2 fantasy points per game. My next worse guy is 23.5. I’m willing to stash him because my team looks pretty good so far. I had the 2nd most total points out of anybody in the league last week. Wanted to see what you guys think. Is he worth a stash to see what he can do later on this season? He fills up the stat sheet but is clearly not getting enough playing time from Kidd.

    Here are some waiver wire options available:
    Devin Harris
    Avery Bradley
    Dunleavy
    Mozgov
    Temple
    Norris Cole
    Steven Adams
    Marcus Morris
    Telfair
    Shawne Williams

    Thanks in advance

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @mamba: Yeah he’s a lot tougher to hold in a points league. Can you stream a spot? I kinda like Bradley in a points league, a bit clouded by the big game last night maybe, but I’d add him for Giannis

      • Mamba says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: what do you think Bradley’s stats are gonna be the rest of the way? Thinking about adding him

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Mamba: Ummm, 16.5/4/1/1/0 with 1.5 threes made or something like that

  12. Jim says:
    (link)

    I need to drop Eric Gordon and/or Hinrich but I have limited moves. Any one of these guys worth an add?

    Shawne Williams
    Aaron Brooks
    Boris Diaw
    Channing Frye
    Sebastian Telfair

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jim: Yeah I’d add Frye for either one… Probably dropping Hinrich

  13. Boom Shakalaka says:

    I dont really like anyone on the wire ate the moment so I dont know who I would pick up but would you do this trade?

    Trade my Korver+R.Lopez = D.Lillard
