Sorry if today’s update is a little light on jokes, as I had to sit through the ultimate joke – my Panthers playing football.  Cam Newton looks more injured than the Thunder and the offensive line tanked worse than the 76ers.  Buzz’s girlfriend, WOOF!

Anthony Davis is good at basketball.  LeBron James can still get triple doubles.  Eh, there you go, open over.

 

 

 

Just kidding, but the level of ball Davis is playing right now is ridiculous, with my eyebrow raised off of my forehead like I’m a South Park cartoon.  And he’s doing it while being a boss with his %s.  27/14/4/3/4 last night in a near double-rainbow, while shooting 12-21 FG, 3-4 FT, and count em, even fewer TO than Davis has eyebrows, not a single giveaway.  I mean, the Panthers took two plays to have more turnovers than Davis last night…

Not to be overshadowed, LeBron tripdubbed for 32/12/10/1/1.  This game was redonkulous!  Key word on donk, as lots of that was being thrown around.  LeBron did have 4 TO, so advantage Brow!  According to Basketball Monster, Davis’ per-game value is on pace to obliterate the best per-game season since their system launched in 2005-06 with Kevin Durant‘s 2012-13 second best (looking at those, man I forgot how awesome Shawn Marion was!).  We need Rudy to build a best fantasy seasons of all time Sporcle!  While the times are a-changin’, just be happy if you got Brow, since I couldn’t anywhere.  Panthers suck, I see these lines from Brow even though I was in a big minority having him #1 overall… I will be drinking my Crown & Cokes for the duration of this article.  Here’s what else went down in hoops action last night:

Tyreke Evans Hands out a dimebag!  He’s so good!  Then… you see everything else.  It’s like seeing a but-her-body.  Which doesn’t have the same ring as a butherface, but you get the idea.  6/4/10/0/1 shooting an atrocious 2-14.   Only 1 TO though!  AST:TO players are loving that!

Ryan Anderson “Why can’t I quit you!?”  At least, let’s hope you Brokeback Mountained yourself if you were thinking of dropping Anderson in shallowers.  That sounded a lot worse than I meant it to…  Added another 32 points and 8 treys to his Ledger.  While the dorm RA doesn’t do much beyond your out-of-position ThrAGNOF, you can’t discount how he never turns the ball over.

Shawn Marion – Playing like it’s 2005-06!  Well, not really, but 4/8/1/1/0 last night and 30+ minutes two straight.  Started Friday night even with Dion Waiters available, so don’t ignore Marion in deepers just because Waiters waited on the bench.  Man his body of work is extensive, is Marion in the HOF discussion?

Kevin Love Hit the 6 threes last night, but how are you NOT getting the rich man’s Ryan Anderson vibe at this point?!  Hasn’t dubdubbed in 3 straight, has one outlier with a 4 steal game, other than that, 3 combined steals and blocks on the season.

Enes Kanter Useless.  18/3/0/0/2.  You’re like, “What, blocks, finally!”  And I’m like, “What, 5 TO, in 25 minutes, bash my brains in!”  Shot 7-8 so there’s that, he can shoot some midrange, but other than that goes into the fetal position.  Time for a new Crown & Coke.

Dante Exum Wooooooo!  Trey Burke sucked again, Exum definitely had to get some big minutes!  Oh…  Burke shot 2-12 for 5/2/8/2/0, you like the dimes and he had no TO, but 2-12… 1-8 from deep… Sheesh.  Yet played 36 minutes, and Exum got stuck with 19 of 3/4/0/1/0 ball including an airball so bad it was included in his Rotoworld blurb.  Man, last night blew.  I’m sticking with Exum a tiny bit, but yikes.  I pounded that last C&C I just made, pouring one more.

Gordon Hayward At least someone showed up for the Jazz.  30/8/5/0/1 shooting 11-15 as the Pacers radio crew (I was on the road listening to some of this, definitely before the C&Cs!) were clowning Chris Copeland’s bad defense.  Speaking of…

Chris Copeland – I said it was time to move on yesterday and 6/3/0/0/0 last night, plus getting burnt by G-Hay Girl Hayyyy!  At least all points were two treys!  Bleh.

Donald Sloan More bleh.  1-9 from the field for 2/3/3/0/0 in 29 worse minutes than watching Two Broke Girls.  A.J. Price showed a little sumthin sumthin off the bench, shooting 8-12 (3-4 3PTM) for 22/1/1/0/0, but he’s AJ Price…  The Pacers have Two Broke PG.

Lavoy Allen What in the?!  After a decent start, minutes dropped to under 20 the previous two games before a “why didn’t JB tell em to stream him!” 12/15/3/1/1 line with 0 TO shooting 6-12 last night.  Before you make Lavoy YaBoy, David West is targeting the end of the week to return from his kankle.

Roy Hibbert – 29 points.  I wasn’t watching just listening to some of this, but if the line-ups are how they’re listed, it means Enes Kanter was guarding him a lot of this game.  Which is all you need to know.

Derrick Rose He’s back!  24/2/7/1/0 shooting 9-20.  Looked good out there, I did catch the end of this one.  Unfortunately means that…

Aaron Brooks – … continues to be criminally unused in the NBA.  Imagine what sort of game he’d be running for Utah or Indiana…  11 minutes, and still made em count for 10/2/1/2/0 hitting a trey.

Pau Gasol It’s hard to imagine his blocks per game staying at a career-high pace, but looking like a value for where you had to get him.  I wish I had him somewhere… Keep the C&Cs coming, my vertigo is only barely kicking in!

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Feel the burn!  I think this drink is maybe 1 part coke, 5 parts crown.  You disappoint me so much KCP!  I’m crying on my keyboard.  “Yes honey, that’s why the buttons are sticking…”  9/1/1/0/0, and still not getting the steals.

Josh Smith – Debut for my REL team!  And ya know what, didn’t kill me anywhere!  Somehow my life has turned into Josh Smith being my glimmer of hope… What has this world come to…  19/11/4/0/3 with “only” 3 TO shooting 8-19 and 2-3 FT.  And actually hit a 3!  Just needed my REL motivation.

Stan Van Gundy Makes No Sense – I’m obviously not a Brandon Jennings guy, but dude went 11/5/8/2/1 in a near rainbow and was +/- 0 to D.J. Augustin‘s +/- -11 and DJ closed out the game.  BJ had 4 TO and shot only 3-11, so I guess there’s your answer, as DJ was 5-8 FG 16/1/2/1/0, but a few of those buckets in the final minute when it was junky.  This is all junky.

DeMarre Carroll Quick don’t look!  Who led the Hawks in boards last night?!  F!  Gave that away… 9/10/2/1/0 hitting a trey and maintaining borderline 12-team usable value.  Good %s, boards and steals, welcome to the graduation from the ThrAGNOF class!  I retract my thoughts, no longer in the Borderlands and he can be in your Final Fantasy teams where available.

Dennis Schroder 28 minutes that were brighter than that spot in his head.  14/4/4/1/0, but did have 4 TO and Jeff Teague only played 25 minutes.  Teague was benched down the stretch, but I don’t think this is a trend.  He was 0-4, but had 6 assists.

Paul Millsap Maybe hasn’t been a monster, but pretty scary line last night for 19/4/2/3/0 hitting three treys for his first multi-3PTM game.  4-4 FT too!  Trillsap, JB like you.  Not the alcohol talking!

Carmelo Anthony Best game of the year!  Sell everything to get him!  25/9/7/0/0 shooting 11-25.  But before you spray me with your metaphorical confetti (gross), 0-5 from deep, 3-18 back there the last 4, still only 1 block on the season and not hitting FTs like usual… Some of these will bounce back, but one too many holes in this rickety ship.  Except read the end of that last sentence while holding your tongue.

Iman Shumpert Sometimes fantasy value can just hit you right in the face.  18/3/5 last night, shot an eerily identical 8-12 FG (2-4 3PTM) the past two games, and I guess I have to take his awesome haircut seriously for once.  Rather him over… Jameer Nelson?  Manu Ginobili?  Not DeMarre Carroll though… If that range helps at all…  One more shot to finish off the Crown!

Kawhi Leonard Ohhhh he’s so dreamy, even if goop is leakin’ out of his eyes!  I’m too drunk to look at his stats, he did gooooddsds,df.

DeAndre Jordan 6/13 with some blocks in there, he’s good I promise…

Chris Paul/Blake Griffin Both almost triple-doubled but didn’t, they’re not LebrooooBrooBron!  Why are NBA games on so late, I wanna watch The Walking Dead!  I’m so done with this basketballllllllll

 

Streamer Picks:

Gary Neal (14% owned) – As I mentioned yesterday, Neal seems to play down the stretch minutes when the Hornets are down.  And the Hornets just lost to the Lakers.  If the line on this game isn’t Blazers by +25, then I’m taking the over.  Really only had 2 bad games all year, he’s an easy play tonight.

C.J. McCollum (2% owned) – While he might not be the “official” starter with Nicolas Batum missing tonight’s game, I could see all sorts of rotations where Wesley Matthews moves to the 3 and CJ gets a good 25 minutes of rock.  And/or, the Blazers are winning by 30 by the 4th quarter and the Blazers give him the keys in garbage time.

 

I hope everyone had a great start to their week 3 matchups and we’ll see ya tomorrow!

    I’m hating KCP right now but i really need pts and 3s. Would you drop him for any of these guys: mcbob, jr smith or stuckey?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Sio: JR Smith would be the only option there. Stuckey doesn’t shoot many 3s and McBob doesn’t really score. If you quit KCP for JR Smith I wouldn’t be mad at you. Either way I doubt you’re going to be happy with JR either.

      • Sio says:
        (link)

        @Slim: yeah thinking the same thing. I’ll probably just stay put and hope KCP gets it together. Another question for ya Slim. Would you trade lawson and korver for lillard in a 14 teamer with a really thin waiver wire?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Sio: I like keeping KCP too.

          Mehhhh, it’s razor close. I think I would hold, I still like Lawson even though his ankles seem to be a season-long frustration

    Hello JB!
    Tough time over here.
    http://games.espn.go.com/fba/standings?leagueId=40804&seasonId=2015

    My team is Pete Top/Kevin Bottom.
    As you can see I’m first at Reb/Ast.
    There’s a talking about a trade in our league between Lowry (Fighting McArthurs) and Howard (Double L).

    Should I try to involve Rondo to get Lowry for a triple trade in order to get up in Ft & 3p, or I will go down too much in Reb/Ast?
    The Double L guy told me he gives me everything to get Rondo.

    I’m afraid of the only 1.0 3p and 5.6 ast avg of Lowry.

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @gfpao13: I’m not too worried about Lowry and based off your team I would definitely move Rondo for him. Should help bring up (or down) those TOs too.

    Drunk JB makes me spray my confetti all over the place! I’m a bit drunk myself, chillin with the missus at this joint we just arrived at https://www.google.com/search?q=six+senses+ninh+van+bay&client=safari&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=Tv5hVOTxF-WMmwW05ILIAw&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=320&bih=372&dpr=2

    Anyway, I’m still blowing hard like Dr Fünke with boards and I need you to ease my concern. Picked up the big Aussie for Omer and Sloan for Rubio (that one hurt) off the wire, but necessary. Meanwhile, I was screaming at my laptop watching melo out rebound the hell outta trill.. Why trill no like rebounding? See him hitting that 8per mark? Need him to.

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @Lasandro: I think Millsap will be fine. I know he’s started slow but I’m not too worried about it.

      That place looks unreal. I better not show my girlfriend or I’m gonna have to take out a 2nd mortgage.

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @slim: cheers for the reassurance bud! Got bogut off the wire too and hope he keeps chugging along at a 7/11 rate with a couple of blocks and assists. Trying to land kawhi for my Lowry which could really help too. Losing my Rubio did me no good with the brds too.

      Haha man it’s unreal! Just had a beautiful dinner by the pool under the stars. Now back in out hilltop villa about to jump into the private pool. 2nd mortgage or no, your lady will bend over backwards for you if you bring her here!

        @Lasandro: Geez, I need to be a third wheel for your relationship Las! I like both those pickups although Sloan was straight poop last night. His day in the sun might be done-zo.

        Yeah that Kawhi deal would be a monster for ya. I think Trill will be aight too. I mean, DeMarre Carroll isn’t gonna pull down 10 every game, a little flukey.

      • Lasandro says:
        (link)

        @jb Gilpin @slim: haha well she works for Six Senses hotels so if you ask nicely, she could hook y’all up with a friends discount 😉

        Well it turns out the sloan’s next game ain’t till a couple of days from now. And dipo is still on the wire and perhaps back in two weeks.. Worth grabbing and waiting on his retub or just play Sloan a couple of days and risk picking dipo up next week (before someone else does)? MCW coming bck this week only leaves KD and tjones on my injured list for now

      • Lasandro says:

        What if I try a Lowry for dirk trade? Better value?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Lasandro: Oh damn, might do that! I do have the big wedding and Honeymoon next year…

          Well Sloan goes Wednesday (today/tomorrow, it’s today but feels like tomo since it’s 4 am haha) so I would play him tonight, then drop for Dipo unless Sloan goes nuts, then use Sloan again Friday.

          Sorry remind me again, Lowry for Dirk is in that 14cat one right? Ya know what, either way yeah I’ll take Dirk.

        • Lasandro says:
          (link)

          @jb Gilpin: you should bud! Shoot me a pm on twitter anytime you’re keen on checking out a six senses around the world and I’ll see what I can do for ya. You too @slim

          So getting either kawhi or dirk is of equal value to ya? I’ll just send both offers out there and see which one bites then. Yep for the 14 cat 8 teamer. I don’t really care about my other two teams haha

          • Slim

            @Lasandro: Wow. That is awesome. If I go 250 miles for vacation that’s a long ways for me. Time to get a passport…

            I’d go Kawhi slightly over Dirk. I imagine he’s going to be tougher to get right now though.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Lasandro: Def gonna do that! Agree with Slim below, very slightly Kawhi ahead but very similar value

    1. my parsons+elfrid for klay+mason plumlee?
    2. thoughts on schroeder. been playing well as of late. lavine seems to have the upside, but schroeder looks to be locked in to a 25min backup role with no competiton
    3. pls rank: ed davis, mason plumlee, gobert, oquinn

      JB Gilpin says:

      @hamtime: 1. Nah, I think it’s overpaying. 2. I dunno, Shelvin Mack is there but I guess has fallen out of favor. I think Teague plays more than he did last night and Schroder doesn’t play down the stretch like that that often. 3. Put O’Quinn ahead of Gobert, but that order otherwise

    being offered vucevic for parsons+jordan hill. seems like a no brainer until i look at vuc’s horrible playoff sched. how do you feel about the deal and should i pull the trigger regardless? feel like im giving up too much.

    if he adds jabari as the “throw in”, does that change your opinion?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @hamtime: Ehhh, it’s a close deal I really like Hill and Parsons… Jabari might change it though, you get his 2nd half upside. Maybe flip Vuc in Feb or something.

    I know you guys love Millsap. But with my current roster, do you think it is better to have Millsap or Drummond? I am getting on offer for Drumm. My blocks seems decent not great. But afraid of losing Millsap’s all around stats esp steals and ast.

    Guards: Curry, Lawson, MCW, KCP, Sloan
    Forwards: T.Jones, Teletovic, Draymond, McD
    PF/C: Millsap, Monroe, Gortat, Ed Davis

    Davis is a beast but if given a do over I’m still taking Lebron #1 overall for the edge in durability/health.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hamtime: I’d be good getting Wall there

  11. Good morning guys! I’m an eccentric fantasy owner. I play in one league so I like to trade a lot, construct and deconstruct my roster just to see if I can do it (17 trades and counting). Anyways, I’m about to settle down but here’s what my roster currently looks like:

    (12-team H2H 8 category league, TOs don’t count)

    PG John Wall
    SG Eric Bledsoe
    SF Gordon Hayward
    PF LaMarcus Aldridge
    C Al Jefferson
    G Damian Lillard
    F Channing Frye
    UTIL Jeremy Lin
    UTIL Eric Gordon
    UTIL KCP
    Bench Henry Sims
    Bench Wesley Johnson (going to stream tonight)
    Bench Gary Neal (going to stream tonight)

    I dropped Chris Copeland, per JB, the dude looks done right now. The following guys are on waivers and I’m just wondering if anyone can make a case for a claim:

    Avery Bradley
    Andre Iguodala
    J.R. Smith
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
    Boris Diaw

    I feel like Frye, Gordon and KCP have to be rostered with the amount of run they are getting. I can stream the final three bench spots. I’m just wondering if anyone believes any of the above can carve out a permanent roster spot. Bradley is getting plenty of run and I have a hard time believing Iggy is done (decline but AST/STL combo). Any thoughts?

    Thanks everyone!

    • Clay says:
      (link)

      @WNWDOTCOM: I get that you’ve made a ton of trades already, but how in the world do you have Wall, Aldridge, Al Jeff and Lillard all on one team in a 12-team league? If you can do that by mid-November, maybe you should play in a more competitive league, no?

      • @Clay: Hah I actually had Ibaka too but traded him to get some stuff around him (Hayward & Bledsoe to be exact).

        I feel like our league is competitive but my strategy has always been to take mid-tier players and turn them into studs. People are too concerned with focusing on specific needs throughout the categories and ignoring overall talent. With that said, I’m only 8-8 and finished runner-up last year. Lots of work left to do!

        • Clay says:
          (link)

          @WNWDOTCOM: Gotcha. Good luck!

          • @Clay: Also, I know this will sound like I’m sucking up to to the writers here (maybe I am) but JB and Slim have done a good job in explaining how to approach fantasy hoops (see the above comment where JB recommended a trade of DC + Lowry for Wall). I trade like that all the time. For example, to get Lillard it cost Wesley Matthews and Marc Gasol or Aldridge it took DeAndre Jordan, Jared Sullinger and DC. On the surface, it looks like I’m destroying my depth when really I’m building a foundation and filling in the gaps.

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      @WNWDOTCOM: if I played in your league id go insane. 17 trades bro? Seriously?
      It’s WEEK 3

      • @Bye Felicia: Yeah, I’m sure I drive some people crazy but I know the people that like to deal and the people that don’t want to be bothered. I do my best to respect that.

        The way I look at it is I’d rather be in an active league where people are trading, adding and dropping then drafting and just leaving it. I’ve been in both and I assure you, it’s much more fun when people are making moves.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @WNWDOTCOM: Wow, 17 trades is impressive! If they’re all even or slight wins, then it’s a great strategy! Improving marginally each time. And really appreciate the shout out, glad we could help on the quest!

          Yeah Eric Gordon is blah to me. Probably rather all those guys ROS, or use another spot to stream. If I had to pick now, I know it’s slow but I would Iggy for Gordon and hope it picks up. Love your stream picks tonight! Go Neal!

    Hey JB. would you do Draymond green for Crawford. I have Jamal and Green is doing better at this time, but I feel when Lee gets back, that’s gonna change maybe? In the H2H points, what’s your perspective?

      JB Gilpin says:

    Team is Conley, MCW, Jrue, IT2, Matthews, Melo, Durant, Noel, Monroe, M.Gasol, Hill.

    Btw, trading MCW for Tyreke Evans is a bad deal for me, right?

    Would this be a good buy-low point for Exum or not?

      doesn’t walking dead air on sunday?

      i love that show. It just obliterates horror of having to go to work next day and I can sleep sound, content with my life.

        @Aiden: Nice man! Pelicans FTW!

        I just don’t get the minutes… Still like giving up Nelson for him though. Ummm, Thompson is a toss up, I’d probably stream ti since MCW/Wroten should impede on some SG minutes.

        Haha yeah, I was just talking about DVR… And/or trying to be funny since I was so drunk I didn’t know what day it was… Haha, nice way to think of the show!

          @JB Gilpin:

          Should I try to grab Augustin for Thompson?

            @Aiden: ummm, I probably would, just because I see Thompson’s minutes going down

    Sloan or C. Lee?
    Also I’m becoming a believer that Wroten can get SP minutes.
    Do you think he can go ROS: 15 pts/ .7 3’s/4.5 ast/ 3.5 Rb/1.5 stl? Am I High or low?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @I am the Walrus: I’ll take Lee ROS, but probably sticking with Sloan until Hill is back, even after last night’s dude. Ummmm, the assists seem high, but I buy the rest!

    Calderon or Collison for the long term (not worried about the short term).
    I’m a bit worried about NY’s offense but Calderon gives me more 3’s which I could use.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Steve: if desperate for those 3s I wouldn’t mind Calderon, but the leg issues and age scare me I would tend to go Collison

    Whats up JB!

    Rubio was dropped last night and at the same time I picked up Lamb. Should I try to pick up Rubio once waiver clears? I’m sure people with higher waiver will try but heck might as well try too.
    My players:
    Westbrook*
    MCW*
    Lillard
    K Walker
    Giannis
    Draymond
    JV
    S Adams
    Horford
    Favors
    K-Mart
    J Lamb

      @m1chael: not much man! Yeah I’d throw a waiver claim out there dropping lamb, Rubio should be owned in all leagues still

      @Jason: I think it’s time to let go of Player Note. God knows he’s had an impressive start to the season but other teams are starting to take note and get a read on him. I think the writing’s on the wall as far as his ROS value.

      @Jason: as much as I love KCP, I can’t argue losing him for Carroll. Any time!

    JB and Slim….what I would do without the daily razzball posts to read in the morning….
    I know I’m not the first person, but I’m starting to foresee KCP losing value and usage. What are your thoughts on dropping him for KJ McDaniels/McRoberts (healthy and productive soon?)/Marcus Morris? I’m in an 8cat H2H and need some more points/boards. Thanks for your help!

    • JB Gilpin

      @adudelzak: thanks so much man! Yeah I’m souring on KCP too I would swap out for KJ. Any time man!

      @Grey: Who doesn’t?! I got 98 outta 200 on that quiz (the top 200 fantasy seasons since 47) and felt dumb, missed so many no brainers.

  22. SheriffMcRawDawg says:

    All right JB. I picked up Bogdanovic but already have my doubts and since I’m light on boards (and need a forward) should I throw him out for: Hickson, Kaman, or Quinn (Morrow and shroder are available if the overall value might be better as well)

    chuch!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @SheriffMcRawDawg: O’Quinn is the close one. Might play tomo… I don’t like the other 2, if O’Quinn is active by tomo I could see making that move. Haha what’s chuch?!

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @SMLV1: Yeah I’m losing both. PG depth is an issue, Beverley is an easy add, then I think KJ should be owned in almost all 12ers.

      @SMLV1: With no one hurt (Noel should be back), I’d get Oladipo

    In a head-to-head points league (yahoo). Few roster tweak questions!

    1. Is Andrew Wiggins going to be worth anything later in the season? He is terrible right now but am hesitant to drop him just because if he keeps getting minutes he has the talent to be an impact player. At the same time, Kelly Olynyk and DeMare Carrol and P.J. Tucker are unowned in my league, or I might even be able to trade Wiggins straight up for Rubio.

    2. I dropped Alec Burks for Iman Shumpert. Alec hasn’t done anything all year. Is this Shumperts breakout year or is he going to get lost in the crowded NY backcourt once everyone is healthy?

    3. Drafted Nicola Pekovich in the 9th round, but considering dropping him for Olynyk. Who has more long term value?

    For all these questions,I am mainly interested in long-term value, not high-value streamers. I am waiting on MCW, Oladipo, and Durant to get healthy and am building for a big run the second half of the year.

    Thanks!
