    i dropped rivers for cole, seeing as how cole is back starting and rivers will still come off the bench. i know its a low end move, but its been eating at me all week. haha.

    who would you pick up in a 14 man: mcbob, elfrid, gobert, tucker, kaman, mcdaniels. need a healthy combo of assists, 3s, steals, blocks %s

      @hamtime: Haha don’t let it eat ya! I figured the Pelicans wouldn’t keep Rivers out there with the starters, and even though cole was bad tonight still like him more.Of those it’s prob Kaman right now for me, McDaniels is close since he hits those cats when he gets run

    Hey JB ,
    I am in a 9 cat roto 13 team league

    Need some help, I am rolling second last in my league. I just recently dropped Evan Turner for Donald Sloan, how do you feel about that? I believe that Evan Turner will get some burn later on but Donald Sloan way too hot and Indiana is just way too depleted. Also what do you think of Gallinari, i have a feeling he will start turning it around but he s kind of frustrating right now.

    My lineup is as follow:

    Pg: mike conley, ty lawson, jose calderon, donald sloan
    sg-sf: demar derozan, lance stephenson, diannis antetokounmpo, danilo gallinari, terence jones, gerald green
    pf-c: andre drummond, larry sanders, nerlens noel, anderson varejao, gorgui dieng

    gerald green is also quite frustrating to own

    Thanks,

    Michael

      @Michael: Love it! Yeah I think Sloan stays this solid another month. Kinda soured on Gallo, don’t like Shaw’s rotations and chandler is playing better. You made the right move, yeah Green was gonna be inconsistent heading into the year, Hornacek is so ride the hot hand it’s crazy

    My Nowitzki for his Bryant… Talk me out of it because I’m about to accept it.

      @Shart attack: Is FG% a stat? Bc if so, it kills Kobe. I would much rather Dirk

    Awesome podcast, love it. Quick question for you: would you take an offer of stephenson and ryan anderson for brandon jennings? It’s a points league, by the way. thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @hammer: thanks for listening man! Really appreciate it. Oh yeah I’d def take Stephenson and Anderson there, Jennings is a little banged up plus could always be cold for a week and cede minutes to DJ

        @JB Gilpin: and I did! Dropped HBarnes for Meeks and then IR’d him for CBrewer. Thanks!

    Should i drop tjones in 12er? Im already stashing rubio although im in the top half of the league but no timetable and nerve damage is bad. Is it a bad move to jump ship?
    Im thinking of taking a flier on kyle o quinn or james johnson.

    • JB Gilpin

      @Tyler: Ehhhh, it’s very close. You never like to hear “finally regained feeling in his toes” Yeah if you’re not killing your matchups in big man stats lately, I’d take the flier on O’Quinn

    I’m in a 9 cat league, 8 teams.

    C. Lee or Danny Green?

      @Mehdan: I like Green a smidge more

    Hey JB,

    I am playing in an insanely competitive league. Where even a decent player is already taken. I need you to look into your crystal ball and tell me which player will be worth owning a week or two from now 😛

    I am running a Hospital rather than a team. I have Rubio , Taj, Tobias, Kevin Martin , Mo Williams. It is a 12 team keeper. No decent pickups except , Morrow Diaw , Stuckey , Montiejunas , Tucker , Iggoudala , James Johnson !

    Rest of them are not playing well like , Giannis , Payton etc ! Took Austin Rivers as a speculative pick . Anyone you like out of those available I mentioned ?

    Thanks!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Blint: Haha the balls are out! That sounded wrong… I’d move on from Rivers. I don’t mind dropping KMart either, even in a keeper especially with bad injuries! Stuckey! Would grab him, then using the other spot to stream if possible. A week or two from now, how about Andre Roberson for some defensive stats – I think he’s already about worth owning now with 7 swats the past 2, plus when Westbrook and Durant are back can really focus on D pressue

      • Dirk's Digglers says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: i’m gonna drop Rivers … for Robertson or Blake? … currently my Gs are Curry, Williams, Hayward, Calderon, Nelson, JJack (play 4 weekly) so thinking Robertson for his defensive stats as I feel like I can get Blake’s assists from Nelson???

      • Blint says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        That definitely sounded wrong 😛

        Dropped K mart for Stuckey!

        WRT to Roberson ( does it annoy you that he doesn’t spell it Robertson?) won’t his playing time reduce even more when both KD and Westbrook return?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Blint: Awesome! Haha yeah he is totally missing that T! Nah I think he starts at the 2 and can play 30ish minutes even with RJax running some big mins.

    been offered Amir and Iggy for my Greek Freak … I’m pretty certain it’s a no … do you agree?

      @Dirk’s Digglers: Yeah I do, Iggy is barely ownable in any league at this point

    Have a full squad tomorrow and need to sit one. Who should I sit outta MCW, Kieff, kemba, Oladipo? I’d put bogut in there too but need all the big boarding I can get. 14 cat roto

    Hi JB/Slim,

    Still listening to the podcast, but wanna ask a line-up question now. With a full slate of games tomorrow, I need some advice on how to squeeze maximum output from my guys in my H2H league:

    Which SF would you rather play:
    Trevor Ariza vs. Sac
    Draymond Green vs. Orl

    And then which 2 players would you rather have to round out my util:
    Kemba Walker vs. Por
    Goran Dragic vs. Den
    Robin Lopez vs. Cha
    Jose Calderon vs. Dal

    I’m slightly ahead in REB, AST, STL, and BLK, and slightly behind in PTS, 3PM, FG%, and FT%. I’m thinking that Dragic is not a good play due to inconsistency, but just wanted to make sure. Also not sure how Calderon performs if Melo sits out tomorrow.

    I always appreciate your work, guys. Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @decaf: Given needs, playing Ariza at SF. UTIL, I think I am running your PG Kemba and Dragic. Both can help Pts and 3s and FT should be fine. Kemba might hurt FG%, but that would be my play. Any time!

    Great listening to your podcast.

    10 team, h2h, 9 cat. My team:

    Pg- lowry, kemba,tony parker
    Sg- jimmy butler, wesley matthews
    Sf- jabari
    Pf- anthony davis, millsap, markieff
    C- ROLO, big Al
    (2 streaming spots)

    What would be a sell high plus a good fit for my team, if I trade jimmy butler?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @yan yala: Awesome, thanks man! I’d def go big with Butler, and I’d go for an assists guy. Jrue Holiday? Might be perfect.

      • yan yala says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: forgot to mention I got a big assist guy in my injury reserve (Rubio)…. maybe with jimmy and kemba I can take wall, perhaps?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @yan yala: Yeah man, seems like a totally reasonable offer. Wall Rubio and Lowry would be killer for ya
