Everything in life is relative. People often compare their wealth to that of their neighbor, their happiness to their relatives, and their performance to their coworkers. Height can also be relative, apparently. I feel quite tall in my everyday life, but would be an absolute dwarf in an NBA locker room. But even amongst NBA players there are a lot of scales when it comes to height. There are short players, tall players, very tall players, and then there is Boban.

“Let me show you how it’s done, punny, 7 feet 3 Kristaps”. I live for the day Boban gets to play against Tacko Fall, one on one in the post.

Two players really shined from last week’s suggestions and those were Trevor Ariza and Malik Beasley. Both look like good values for the rest of the season and should be scooped up immediately. Cody Zeller and Bruce Brown were not that impressive as the two aforementioned, but were still usable.

Buy

Danuel House:  A name that is not mentioned enough as a fantasy winner in the aftermath of the four-team trade last week is for sure House. He was already a big part of Houston’s rotation but PJ Tucker’s move to center has further increased his value, all the way to 27th for the last two weeks. He is a must-add in my book, with the Rockets fighting for the best possible placement in the Western playoff race (37% owned).

Jordan Clarkson: If a dedicated basketball dictionary existed, Jordan Clarkson’s picture would be next to the definition of “streaky shooter”. That has been his main characteristic throughout his career but when he is on a roll, like he is right now, he can be a difference maker coming off the bench. Since his trade to Utah, he has improved his fg% and 3pt production and is worth riding until he cools off, as he is ranked 61st during the last two weeks (34% owned).

Thon Maker: Andre Drummond is no longer in town so his minutes are up for grabs. Besides the obvious beneficiary of the situation, Christian Wood, there is another player who has seen his minutes rise significantly. This is none other than Thon Maker. Once regarded as a similar project to Giannis, Maker has seen his playing time increase to 28.8 minutes after the trade and is averaging 12.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks. He can be a low-end option in standard leagues and his value is further boosted by his 1 triple per game, so I would be actively looking to add him in deeper leagues at the very least (13% owned).

Sell

Tristan Thompson: He was featured as a ‘Sell’ candidate earlier in the season and I sure hope you listened to that advice because now, after Drummond’s arrival, he is more of a drop candidate. His removal from the starting 5 in the first game and the 19 minutes he received do not help his case. There should be better options on the waiver wire. (56% owned).

Kendrick Nunn: I am sad typing these words, as Nunn has been a true feel-good story this season. He has gone from undrafted, G-League rookie from the G-League to becoming a key clog in Miami’s rotation. However, the Heat got a lot deeper with the trades they made and Nunn needs minutes in the 30s to keep his value afloat. I am not sure those minutes are guaranteed anymore, while his shooting slump has him ranked 362nd during the last two weeks. There are better options out there, particularly in standard leagues (63% owned).

10 team Head to Head Very competitive league been going since 2003.
I’m in first place But everybody’s really close.
We only carry one IR spot in which I have Norman Powell. My biggest weaknesses are free throw percentage And three pointers. Daniel house is available. I can switch Capella to the IR drop Norman Powell or also have PJ, Washington Jeremy Lamb And Joe Ingles as possible drops. Or just stay put?

Sitting in 2nd, probably sliding to 3rd following this double week week.

Richaun in the IR slot.
Dame, Ja, SGA, Fournier, House, RoCo, Chriss, Wood, Ayton, Montrezl, MitchRob, Noel.

Noel’s been mostly a dud the past 2 weeks. Drop him for James Johnson/Naz Reid?

Many thanks! One last follow-up; the format is 11 cats, std 9 plus off reb and def reb

Would you deal Clarke straight up for Allen?

Would you deal Clarke and Rubio for Allen and Dej Murray?

12 teams, 11 cats – standard 9 with Off Reb and Def Reb, keep 5 by round (moves up each year)

Side 1: Ayton (1st), Wood (15), and first round pick

Side 2: Bam (9th), Collins (7th), and sixth round pick?

I’m in win now mode, if it is close and need that info for tiebreaker. Thanks!

Why wouldn’t they keep KAT fresh and healthy, develop more young guys, and tank some more? Did they deal their pick with Wiggins?

I hear you. I’m going to try and float Naz and a pick upgrade for Nance.
