    hi jb:

    1. deep 16m/11 cat league. picked up afflalo due to a bare FA pool. Thoughts?
    2. is jerian grant worth holding onto in a 14m/9cat or is his roster spot better for streaming (3 adds per week). interesting streamers – powell, jerami grant, ezili
    3. please choose best value for 16m/11cat – hollis, greivis, lamb, capela
    4. thoughts on grabbing mcdermott?
    5. Tjones for Middleton or am I selling too low?

        @Hamtime: 1. Sure, yeah he should probably be owned. 2. I’ll like him until Covington is back, maybe hold a few more weeks 3. I dunno, depends on needs, all similar range. 4. Sure, especially for that 16er. Odd rotation for the Bulls tonight… 5. I’m holding out hope, i think it’s too low

          @JB Gilpin: Thanks! For #3, i meant jerian grant (NYC).. sorry, i get confused myself with those 2!

    So Hoiberg announcing Dougie McBuckets starting. So they going to have him guard KD? Can’t see how Butler guards KD and have McBuckets guard Westbrook.

    Gonna have want to watch the start of this game.

      @Kw: Hah yeah very odd. I didn’t watch most of that one, weird rotations it looks like…

    • CTMN says:

      @Kw: Butler guarded KD and McDermott “guarded” Roberson. Bulls pretty much ignored Roberson. Rose was on Westbrook.

    Hey JB
    New addict of the site here, cant get enough of the content!

    Figured i’d see what you think about this since the trade just popped up a few minutes ago

    12 team/9 cat
    Gain: Mirotic, Lowry, Dragic
    Lose: Wall, Whiteside

    My squad right now is:
    PG: Wall
    SG: MoWill
    SF: Cassius Klay
    PF: Whiteside of the moon
    C: JoVal
    G: Danny Green
    F: Timmy D
    Util: Parsons
    Util: J.R.
    Util: Wilson Chandler
    Bench: Mamba
    Bench: Gortat
    Bench: Jabari

    Any thoughts?

      @Eddie Rooskie: Thanks so much man, thanks for checking us out! Haha Whiteside of the moon single-handed is anchoring you big men, I don’t think I’d do that one

      • Eddie Rooskie says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: As a Heat fan I almost cant believe the hype is actually real!

        I got a little excited about picking up a few more assists as my team definitely could use a boost in that category but hopefully Klay, Parsons, and Kobe (if he learns to play nice) pick it up a little to even that out later on in the season.

        I think from what I see, if all my guys are healthy and playing well I’ll be making it rain treys every week. Do you think I should maybe give up someone like Danny Green in exchange for a PG if thats the case?

          @Eddie Rooskie: Hah yeah Slim loves the Heat too, and was all about slamming on Whiteside’s game! Yeah but I dunno if Lowry and Dragic dramatically outdo Wall… Plus Mirotic was awful and didn’t get to 16 minutes tonight.

          Yeah your treys look great when everyone is around, def would shop a few of your shooters! Sucks Green is starting kinda slow though, might be worth waiting until he heats up for better value back

            @JB Gilpin: Whiteside was tough to watch last night… 7 TOs? 7!!!

    Hi JB,

    Thoughts on Dwight Powell moving forward? Him or Dieng ROS?

    9-cat H2H 16 teams: CP3, Bledsoe, Jerian Grant, Bazemore, Gallinari, Draymond, Jones, Aaron Gordon, Chandler, Dieng

    Problem with dropping Dieng is that Chandler will be my only C-eligible player, might cause a few wasted games.

    Deron Williams, Schroder, Marvin Williams, Koufos, Capela, KOQ, and Noah are available/were dropped? Any changes I need to make?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Larry: Tough one, love Powell if he had a starting role. Both are tough in their bench roles… I’ll lean Dieng but bareeeeely. And yeah, with C factored in, I prob would hold.

      Def like Schroder over Bazemore, damn Bazemore had a nice game last time out. Actually a lot of interesting names out there, I would stream Bazemore’s spot, like I like Kosta next couple games while Boogie is out. Hope that helps!

      • Larry says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Does this mean I can ignore D-Will and Noah? Also, is Grant a hold ROS? Thanks!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Larry: Oh wow, I read right over Deron Williams! He needs to be owned. I think he’s your own and a hold. Noah can be ignored though, and crazy that many good options are out there in a 16er!

    Haha Gobert screwing the one reason many of us picked him over Drummo – 4/10 fts just screwed my roto today. And his fg% was absolute merde today – so many missed bunnies at the rim 🙁 Was offered Klay for him today. I would take it if I had another reliable source of brds, which (outside of KAT) I really don’t. Dame and Gobert for Klay for DMC perhaps, in the near future?

    Still think trading my Gay for Hayward would come up trumps for me. Favors seems to be taking up a lot of usage and when burks is on court, he does as well. Eating into Gordon’s supporting stats, even though his scoring today and yesterday looks to be fine. I could do that after this weekend, once DMC is back.

    On another note, would trading Goran for Rubio be a good move in a 14cat? His fg% certainly wont help and much less scoring, but he is getting to the line in a really good way and his stls should surely trend up on the season.

    • Lasandro says:

      Just an edit: I meant to ask if you thought trading my Gay for Hayward would come up trumps for me – forgot the question mark.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:

        @Lasandro: Ugh yeah I saw that and about to be in the notes. Rough. Ummmm, I dunno man, you lose a lot of AST and BLK in that deal. Things should be better for Gobert. Yeah Goran has been slow, depends on needs. More scoring lower TO from Dragic, nice dimes and stl from Rubio.

        Yup I still like Hayward! Better tonight

    Question i have bogut and david lee on waivers
    Should i pick both up. I would pick up bogut for ish smith
    Also picked up tony parker will he start turning around, his minutes are pretty high

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Michael: Def think Bogut and Parker are the two to own. parker doesn’t have much of a ceiling, but he looks not super old when he plays, so I think he can be useful

    Heard u guys talking about walking dead on the podcast. I’m pretty sure the person who u guys talked about didn’t get what u talked about. But the feelings that u talked about is very accurate, because when look closely to that person’s face we see sad and shocked, because the other person was getting it while trying to do things to the person. Anyways, stay tune and don’t give up on the show…

      @Quintero: Yeah the writer got slammed SOOOO hard for that episode. I know what you’re saying and I guess it’s possible but I don’t know… I’m not giving up on the show, the uncertainty of life or death is one of its best qualities. Just don’t bring up T-Dog to JB. He’s still bitter about that one.

        @Quintero: @Slim: Haha not surprised there was tough backlash.

        THE FUCK THEY DO THAT TO T DOG FOR?!?!?! That was utter BS. Ruined my morning comments now Slim…
