There is no competition when it comes to 6th MOY. I mean, Clarkson is in the conversation for a reserve All-Star spot and is a big part of this 23-5 Utah squad, so if anything he’s overqualified. For fantasy purposes, he does little besides launch threes and score, but he does it at an elite rate.

Thad has been the subject of much discussion lately, as during WCJ and Lauri Markkanen’s absence, the veteran has posted some very solid numbers, ranking near the top 60. Now that WCJ is back, many are clamoring to drop Thad, but I see him retaining marginal value until this Bulls team is back to full health, as evidenced by tonight’s full line.

With the news that Drummond is being held out in anticipation of a deal, Allen stock is up, and it’s up big. Presumably this means Cleveland is looking to feature Allen as the primary big, so with JaVale McGee also potentially on the move, Allen will have every opportunity to prove himself.

Richaun Holmes was on the bench with a sore right knee, and Whiteside made the most of his extra minutes, double-doubling with 5 blocks. Yep, I can’t blame anyone who holds this man in the hopes that he gets traded or earns a slightly larger role.

    I add Poetl for those sweet blocks (where I’m struggling without Wood) and the Spurs get Covid-ed. And after a career-year type start, Barnes is looking like an afterthought on offense. Would you drop either for any of these FAs?

    FAs: Bey, Diallo, Ingles,Ju.Jackson, K.Anderson,, Kuzma, McConnell, Quickley, Tate, Trent
    (All except Kuzma can be kept next season at an 11th round price).

      Hey Juan, yeah the Spurs situation is turning into a real headache. I like Kyle Anderson or Bey over Barnes personally.

      I’m going to assume that you’re pretty comfortably high in the standings, since your team is pretty stacked. In that case I’d consider holding Poeltl through this rough stretch because Aldridge could be on the move.

      Quickley is intriguing as a keeper, but his minutes aren’t reliable enough to depend on for immediate help.
