Ahh, it’s good to be back. I feel like a bear coming out of hibernation. Except it’s the fall, not the spring. And I’m fatter, not thinner… Ok, it’s a terrible simile. Just shaking off the rust. But it appropriately illustrates what you should expect from the following cerebral voiding.

This is my bold predictions article, my writing equivalent to a Dubbya Bush “going with my gut!” moment. You want facts, stats, metrics? Keep walking, fella. This here piece is chock full of conjecture, fact-glossing best guesses, and shockingly basic deductive reasoning. Slim and JB are the fact finders, and, let’s face it, the guys whose advice you really should follow. BUT FORTUNE FAVOURS THE BOLD! And if nothing else, the following moves would certainly be considered bold. What I hope you take away from this, good reader, are reasons that I think a few players may be under valued, and therefore grabbed, or higher than they should be, and not reached for.

We’re wheeling and dealing here folks, no reasonable offer refused, so come on down to the lot, there’s a clown making balloon animals for the kids! Take a gander:

UNDERVALUED:

Steven Adams C

Now this model’s a beaut! A Grandma-type only drove this one to church on Sundays! (Ok, I’ll ease up on the used car salesman jargon, but I refuse to give it up entirely!) Adams was drafted to be brought along slowly, but he ingratiated himself to Coach Brooks, and got burn in the later part of the year, and into the playoffs. JB has him ranked 165th, which if you wanna get all metric like, is right where he should be. But consider this: Kendrick Perkins is another year along, and we all know he should be put out to pasture, and is the only other legit center on the team. Yes, he’s young and gets into foul trouble,  and you’ll be punting FT%, but he could have Spencer Hawes breakout potential, in my humble opinion, without the 3pts. Ok, truthfully, nothing close to Hawes in terms of final production, more in terms of actual production exceeding his ADP. Slim wrote that he will have limited scoring, and I respectfully disagree. In pre-season, Adams has scored 19+ 3 times this preseason out of six, at time of this article being written, with blocks, steals and a sexy per-36. With him very possibly starting over Perk when the regular season comes around, I would trade for him for an Anderson Varejao, or other slightly higher-ranked injury risk bigs and hope that it pays off.

Jonas Valanciunas C

Another one priced to move! JV burned owners last year after lofty expectations, no getting around it. But big men take longer to develop, I have been told, and I have it on good authority that he was mandated by Coach Casey to watch his fouls, which would account for the drop in swats and steals from year one. He was gelded, but the stallion is back! He was a monster in the last 20 or so games of last year, and was a double double machine in the first round of the playoffs, with a high FT and shooting %. He also played his Lithuanian pakala (aka arse, for the bohemians) off this summer at the FIBA tournament, with his team placing 4th, losing to France (whose lineup is all NBA players), despite being the top player in the game with 25 pts, 9 boards, shooting 9/10 from the line, and 60% FG% in the game. The whole gang is back in Toronto, so continuity will also hopefully help his production. Add all that together, and you got… I dunno. But what I do know is that Nerlens Noel is ranked 49, and JV is ranked 81 by our illustrious JB.  And while Noel is a potential beast that may well exceed his projection, he’s been off a whole year due to a nasty injury, has never played in the league, and will likely be on a minute restriction.  He’s a classic risk/reward, and too risky for this guy. I would rather take JV in round 7-8, and use that sweet 4th-5th round pick on something more safely alluring.

Joe Johnson SG, SF

This one has some miles on him, but make no mistake, he is a muscle car personified. A two who can post up his defender, and assert his will. He’ll be good on FT%, FG%, he’ll score, board a bit, and hit a few treys, and the occasional swipe. As Slim pointed out, Deron Williams has yet to prove he can stay healthy, they’ve lost Shaun Livingstonas well as Andre Blatche, so somebody’s gotta score… If you happen to nab Johnson at his Razzball ranking of 106, well, I think you have got yourself a deal there, partner!

OVERVALUED:

Jabari Parker SF

Here’s the thing: We all know that the kid can score, as well as do a lot things, and I like him a lot, but at 42? I don’t like what’s going on in Milwaukee. There, I said it. Coach Kidd is playing Giannis Antetokounmpo at point, and Parker at Power Forward sometimes? I don’t get it. Larry Sanders coming off the bench? I just don’t know what will happen there, and in a fantasy season, you can ill afford to have it take 10 weeks for role definition/direction to take hold in the land of the deer as it did in Brooklyn. No science here, it’s all gut talking, of which I have in spades. I’m not sayin’, just sayin’. Never trust a skinny chef, which has nothing to do with with the topic at hand, but are words of wisdom. I would love to get Parker in round 6, but he won’t be there for me, I would wager.

Brook Lopez C

His foot is already hurting him in pre-season. Immense talent (less the boards, oddly), that is not debatable. But at his Razzball ranking of 46 [editors note – injury has him moving way way down], how long can you keep him on the bench if he injures himself? And he will be injured, be sure of that, sure as awkward boners occur in junior high. If you want to take a producer that is always at risk of injury, take Nene Hilario at the end of the draft, not Brook with your 4th rounder.

Ricky Rubio PG

So I have an inside scoop here: I happen to be friends with a guy who’s cousins with the guy who operates the tee shirt cannon at the Target Center Area, and he has said that Ricky’s offence is not looking good, and not good enough for me to bite at 28. He will definitely dish and steal, as JB has pointed out, but I’m also worried about the dimes dropping a scootch with a new Love-less cast. My Gut’s on the mike here, people, straight spittin. But if, say, Mike Conley was there to take, I’d buy American (one more car zinger, Booyaa!)

 

That’s all I have for now, sports fans. Truth be told, it’s hard to poke holes in the rankings the two real analysts at Razzball have compiled for your viewing pleasure, so consider that when you sharpen your tongue to disagree with me.

Puh-leaze, let me know what you think, I’d love the comments!

    I like Adams too, I think that’s a good call but he’s a bit more useful in reality than fantasy. My pick would be Mason Plumlee, I wasn’t targeting him but I ended up with him and he’s a beast with Lopez hurt…20 and 17 last night!

    • Dan A

      Dan Aide says:
      (link)

      @CTMN: You are right to target him, as Lopez’s durability is shaky, as I mentioned, and no Blatche to eat into his minutes. He made the practice squad for a reason, but he will only be really valuable when Lopez is out, IMO. It will be a lot harder to get those numbers in 17 min a game, say. The good news for you is that Lopez could be injured more than he’s not.
      I suggested Adams, because even when Perkins is healthy, he will get minutes. On a pure talent level, you may be right about Mason. I’d like to see him gain some mass, though, defenders will be able to back him down pretty well, also.
      Good luck this season!

      • CTMN says:
        (link)

        @Dan Aide: Good luck to you to! I picked Mason as a late round pick (12 teams 15 players per team) that I wasn’t really planning on. If Lopez stays healthy for a while then I’m sure Adams will still be on the wire for me to pick up. I agree that he’ll be valuable even with Perkins, and he should get the starting C spot. Perkins is just so bad in reality, especially with all the fast teams in the league now.

    Dan my Man
    How are we doin today?

    I have a question for first year keeper league I can keep how many ever players I want every year at their draft round. In such a league do you just avoid the old guys and just construct a young roster? Where will you take the rookies in a league like this one.
    Wiggins , Parker , Noel , Smart , Embiid?

    • Dan A

      Dan Aide says:
      (link)

      @Hmmmmm: Tough question, but I like that draft format!
      First things first: there are a lot of great players that are young enough, like Demar Derozan, Oladipo, Damian Lillard, etc, don’t just target Rookies. or, more accurately, don’t reach for them. In long term keepers, like dynasty drafts, and your format, don’t sacrifice the present to plan for the future. Meaning, it’s ok to take a Chris Paul, who may not be his elite self in 3 years, worry about that 3 years from now.
      Marcus Smart would be a good get, late, I would avoid Embiid, as he will ride your bench all season, limiting your movements this year, unless you can draft and stash on the IR. There are always young guys coming up, so don’t worry. Stack your first team with ballers, and try to avoid KG, or West, and their old-as-dirt counterparts. That said, you don’t have to keep all your players, so if West slips well past his ADP, take him and feel smug, have a donut.

      • Hmmmmm says:
        (link)

        @Dan Aide:

        Appreciate all the help bud. Which players outside the top 75 you definitely want on your team?

        • Dan A

          Dan A says:
          (link)

          @Hmmmmm: I like JV, Henson , Harris, j. Nelson, spencer hawes, Dieng, Gallinari,
          But the Razzball rankings are pretty spot on, use them.

    A couple trades I need help with if you don’t mind! It’s a really, really deep league..the the best player on the waivers is Mike Miller, and it’s 12 teams, h2h most cateogies. Thank you so much!!

    My Gasol and Danny Green for his Duncan, Wilson Chandler, and McGee

    My Lin and Henson for his Dragic

    • Dan A

      Dan Aide says:
      (link)

      @Anthony: First, Which Gasol? Makes a huge difference.
      Also, 2 for 3 trades are never that. Who would you have to drop to make that work?
      If you’re deep at forward, I like the Dragic trade, but Henson looks like he’s starting, FYI, although I like Dragic a lot this year.
      Let me know.

      • Anthony says:
        (link)

        @Dan Aide: My bad man for not fully clarifying. It’s Pau Gasol I would be giving up and I would be dropping Jordan Farmar. I think I’m going to hold off on the Dragic one though, Linsanity should be respectable in LA. Thanks again!

    what’s going on? didn’t have anything add just wanted to say nice post and looking forward to the season FINALLY beginning. i love the buy/sell columns a lot, so keep up the great work man!

    other than KD i have oladipo, MCW, frye, horford, and brandon knight on my team….. pretty sure i’m getting abused the first few weeks at least. but taking the plunge got a solid team and hoping won’t have to catch up too much when KD rises like a muffuggin phoenix

    • Dan A

      Dan Aide says:

      @KD Owner: Firstly, thank you for your post, I appreciate it, I hope I continue to entertain.
      As to your luck, just, wow, sucks brah!
      I don’t know how prudent it is to keep 4 injured players if you only have 3 bench spots, but the good news is that early reports (already reported here on Razzball) is that KD may only miss 4 weeks. I hope the PG’s and the Horf are ready to go by season start for you, doubt Channing will be.
      In the RCL league i’m running, I was ecstatic when I got (randomized) first overall pick, and took KD, then he was injured 2 days later, and I felt shame. So I know what you’re going through.
      Holla!

    • Dan A

      @hamtime:

      Bargnani (on a very short leash, he makes me nervous, but will play the most minutes when healthy)
      JaVale, but he’s not ready to play yet, always an injury concern
      Copeland
      With Gobert and O’Quinn, mad upside, minutes a worry.
      Napier is officially the 3rd point, but could end up supplanting chalmers and/or cole

    Hey guys, did my first dynasty auction last night. I think I made out like a bandit considering it’s a dynasty, but I’ve definitely got some kinks in my lineup (gotta make some moves). Let me know if I overpaid for anyone because we’ve got to stay under the cap if we make trades, etc ($200 limit). Standard 12 team h2h w/ 17 roster spots:

    Kevin Durant – $74
    Deandre Jordan – $20
    Ty Lawson – $18
    Kemba Walker – $10
    Derrick Favors – $12
    Kennith Faried – $8
    Jimmy Butler – $8
    IT2 – $5
    Reggie Jackson – $4
    MKG – $1 (nomination backfired, lol)
    Trey Burke – $3
    Gorgui Dieng – $3
    Mason Plumlee – $2
    John Henson – $3
    Alec Burks – $2
    Rudy Gobert – $1
    PAUL GEORGE – $7!! (saved some capspace, and went after him when everyone else was broke/done, lol)

    A lot of these guys were picked up with the next few seasons in mind since it’s a dynasty, but I ended up with $19 in capspace left over, and a few pieces to move in other deals (Deandre/Faried for now). Working on getting a top tier big with good %’s. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @Drez: not top tier by any stretch, but JV should be affordable, and will give you good to very good FT%,FG%. Boards, the odd dime and block/steal. Shouldn’t cost you more than Manimal. Or try going for Cousins for both, as a flier, or even Jordan/Paul George for Unibrow…
      Good luck!

    Hey Dude

    Need your help here, I am in a ESPN 16 Team Keeper Points League and need keep 6 players. The scoring system benifits players that double double.

    Here is my roster, can you help me identify the best 6 players?

    Chris Paul
    Nicolas Batum
    DeMarcus Cousins
    Chandler Parsons
    Nikola Pekovic
    John Henson
    Reggie Jackson
    Larry Sanders
    Henry Sims

      @Dan The Silly Met Fan: top four are easy:
      Paul
      Batam
      Cousins
      Chandler parsons
      I would say in dynasty, you should keep Henson as well, he’s in line to get more minutes, likely starting.
      Final guy? Peek or Mason, I’m leaning Mason. Sanders is in the mix, but if you’re keeping Henson, hard to have the guy he’s battling for floor time.
      But. That’s just me. Good luck!

    Hey guys, totally new to fantasy basketball this year (I play baseball and football every year), and just got asked to join a 10 team weekly head to head league today. Just did a quick mock draft to get a sense of things, and wanted to get your reaction. There are definitely some panic picks in here because of 30 second per pick in the mock, but any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    1. James Harden (Hou – SG,SF)
    2. Serge Ibaka (OKC – PF,C)
    3. Kawhi Leonard (SA – SG,SF)
    4. Paul Millsap (Atl – PF,C)
    5. Rajon Rondo (Bos – PG)
    6. Brook Lopez (Bkn – C)
    7. Lance Stephenson (Cha – SG,SF)
    8. David West (Ind – PF)
    9. Markieff Morris (Pho – PF,C)
    10. Darren Collison (Sac – PG)
    11. Paul Pierce (Was – SF,PF)

    13. Dion Waiters (Cle – SG)

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @Filkarri: good draft, but I would be a little worried about Lopez, due to injury risk, and West, due to workload/age. But don’t sweat it. That would be a decent squad to field.
      That said Rajon is injured, (so is Lopez at the moment!), it would be hard to burn picks 5+6 on guys riding the pine, so do a bit of research on who is expected out to begin the season. Yahoo has an injury report section, to help you along. Good luck!

    The earliest I’ll take Lopez is late 4th, early 5th.. he has too much potential value to pass on there

    Rubio is a legit passer, not dependent on Love to get assists, But his upside does come with a big downside

    Overall, good post. I’m targeting all your undervalued guys at their ADPs

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @Snacks13: I agree with the potential Lopez has when on the floor, but in his last 3 years, he has played 5 games, 72, then 17. All foot injuries, with one healthy season, and now another foot injury. You are a riverboat gambler to take him in the 4th or 5th, I hope it works for you. Or you have one of those tiny 2 shot pistols…
      As to Rubio, I like him, a lot. You just have to build a scoring team around him, to make up for his deficiencies. Also, hope that he does t get benched in the 4 q like last year due to bad d. But a dynamic passer, and straight their with the steals, I just would rather target a kyle Lowry, or someone with less risk/reward.
      All in all, I was shooting g from the hip, it’s not stat based, more a personal thing. I wish you luck in your draft, hombre!

    thoughts on this deal – we draft sunday;

    my #9 & #16 picks for their #2 overall

    my #64 (6th round) for their 95 & 119 (8th & 10th round)

    i like the top half of the deal getting AD or Curry puts me sig ahead than if I get Wall & Ibaka (i know westy won’t be there at 9 which would be idea w massive usage boost for 2 months) I’m just concerned about 2nd half of deal feel like i’m giving up a sure thing in early 6th to go hunting in waiver wire almost land…

    thoughts my friends?

  16. Great article Dan. I too have high expectations for Adams but I haven’t added him yet. I’m looking for one “flier” to fill my bench. Adams is available as is Avery Bradley and CJ Miles. Do you think Adams has the highest ceiling of the three? I’ll have the roster space available when my latest trade processes at 9 PM ET tonight!

    Thanks for the insight.

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @WNWDOTCOM: Avery may have early returns while Rondo is out, but not a long term fantasy get, IMO.
      Miles is intriguing, for sure. I wonder if he’s the main backup to Stucky, the pre season numbers can be counter-indicative to how the regular season will play out, but he killed it last game…
      I think Adams may be the safest bet, considering all three are fliers, but adress your needs, if a guard is what’s more productive for your squad, CJ might be the guy for you.
      Good luck!

    Wutup Danny boy how you been..? My H2H 9 CAT 10 team league
    Westbrook
    Dragic
    Monte Ellis
    Kevin Martin

    Paul Millsap
    Favors
    Monroe

    Alffalo

    Plumlee
    I Actually got Westbrook then Ibaka in the 1st 2 rounds but I’m kicking myself cause I took to long later in the Draft cause someone grabbed Sullinger before I was gonna pick and It automatically gave me Monroe. It says he isn’t gonna start. Do you like my team?? How would you rate it? Lol

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Frankie! Good draft, my man. I like your team. West will be down early, but not a big deal, as hill is as well, and I think west is due back first. I love Millsap, especially if you got him in the 3rd. Monroe is too good to bench. he may not start, but will get quality minutes. They have to showcase him to trade him, don’t worry. Expect a slight downturn in numbers from Afflalo, as he had total freedom to shoot in Orlando, and is playing on a team that needs touches (Lawson, Danilo, etc.) Westbrook is a straight up murderer, especially with KD out, but will hurt you on turnovers, FG%. If you’re gonna ride him for all his other giant killing skills, just accept the punts. Otherwise, move him before KD gets back, his numbers will be naasty. Westbrook and a piece for AD, maybe? It could happen, if that team needs PG stats.
      Good luck, and keep in touch.

            @Frank White: the Brow. Anthony Davis.

              That would be lovely.. Lol. I could’ve gotten KD on the 7th pick but I passed.. I almost grabbed him

                @Frank White: if you decide to trade Westbrook, I would suggest you do it before KD gets back, in the next month. Not that you need to trade him. But only do it if it improves your team. A first round caliber guy only.

    Oh and the Plumlee I got is Mason if that matters.. Do you see any guys I need to change out cause there’s a lot of good guys left on the wire?

  19. Frank White says:

    Trey Burke, DeMarre Carroll, Timofey Mozgov, Mayo, Wilson Chandler, Stoudemire, John Henson

      @Frank White: I like Henson a lot. Maybe swap for… hmm. Hard to choose. Jameer? you have a lot of points already, and Monta Ellis on your squad as well, the guy to own in that backcourt. As well, I think that Henson may be starting, there was talk of that this pre-season.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        Sorry I’m all over the place with 2 conversations.. Lol.. Anyway, Do you like Henson over Mason Plumlee?

        • Dan A

          Dan A says:

          @Frank White: mason has high upside, as Lopez is often injured. I’d keep him for now

  20. Frank White says:

    The guy that has AD doesn’t have the best PG’s. he’s got Ty Lawson, George Hill, Shabazz Napier and that’s it.. If you look at my team, who would you offer him after I try to do Westbrook straight up??

    • Dan A

      Dan Aide says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Always ask, but he’d be a fool to take that straight up.
      I’d offer something like Westbrook and Favors/Monroe? West would be ideal second piece on that one, but I doubt he’ll bite on that.
      You could try Jameer as the second if he only has those 3, and Hill is injured.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        I thought Favors was supposed to be great this season. seems like a lot but if I give Jameer then I’ll be low on PG’s.. You sure I can afford to loose Westbrook and still be OK on my PG status?

  21. Frank White says:
    (link)

    Also if I lose Westbrook then do you still think i’ll be OK with the PG’s I have left?

    • Dan A

      Dan Aide says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Yes, you have Dragis, the starter in Phoenix, Collison, who’s starting in Sac, Monta Ellis, who is essentially the point in Dallas, You’ll be fine. And I think that AD will be the best Stat producer this year overall. You gotta give to get.

      • Frank White says:

        Thanks

    Ok he’s thinking about it.. I feel Monroe might be too much but will still do it if you feel like it will benefit me but who can I give that’s a little less then Monroe that could catch his eye? I know you said Jameer but you sure I can afford to lose him.. He kills in assists. Thanks Bud!!

      @Frank White: he did well in dimes in Orlando. Jose Calderon was a mad dimes guy too for his whole career, but got shut out in Dallas, monta always has the ball. I could be wrong, but I expect Nelson’s dimes to drop.

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:

      @Dan A: @Frank White: also, if you give Monroe, get AD, then you can nab Henson.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        True… Thanks!!

  23. Frank White says:

    Yeah he didn’t want the trade and from what AD did last night I can see why.. Lol.. Anyway. 1 – When you look at my lineup above I noticed most of my big guys are PF’s and not Centers. Including Ibaka which I didn’t know. Is that going to affect my Boards?? 2 – What order would you put these guys for when I can grab them off waivers tomorrow that would help my team the best.. Henson, Omar Asik, Mayo or Steven Adams (Which is starting but I already have 2 guys from OKC if that matters)??

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: get Asik. He’s the starter, killed it last night, won’t be there long.
      Then Henson, only because you have Ibaka, and they (serge and Adams) will compete for the same stats,
      Then Adams
      Then Mayo.

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:

      @Frank White: I would drop Jameer over Plumlee

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        Thnx Bud!!

  24. Frank White says:
    (link)

    Who do I drop for Asik? Plumlee, Jameer??

  25. Frank White says:
    (link)

    So Do you think I’ll be low on Boards considering my big guys are PF’s?? Oh also did you say Ibaka and Adams are gonna compete for the same stats..? Then why was Ibaka on Razzball top 10 and Adams is a waiver pickup?

    • Dan A

      Dan A says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: no, you misunderstand. Earlier you asking about boards specifically. I said Henson over Adams because Ibaka and Adams will be going the same boards. Ibaka is a block machine, other than the brow maybe, the best in the league.
      You’re over thinking this frank. Get Asik.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        k Thanks.. After Grabbing Asik or Henson if I get one of them, are the other guys I mentioned either worth dropping Jameer?? sorry dude just don’t want to make the wrong move.

          • Frank White says:

            Thanks for everything buddy!!
