Frank Sinatra was a cool cat. A member of the Rat Pack, Sinatra was a singer, actor, producer, and was considered one of the most iconic performers of his generation. “Ol’ Blue Eyes” would make the women swoon and get Son to sing one of his most famous tunes….My Way….at a K-Town karaoke establishment.
“Regrets, I’ve had a few…But then again, too few to mention. I did what I had to do…And saw it through without exemption. I planned each chartered course….Each careful step along the byway….And more, much more than this….I did it my way.”
Sounds like my fantasy career, which brings me to Langston Galloway.
Played 37 minutes yesterday. The prior game, Galloway played 31 minutes and attempted 15 shots, with nine from downtown. The Pistons are banged up right now, as Ish Smith, Reggie Bullock, and Stanley Johnson are all down with injuries. You could regret picking up Galloway, as he’s a career 38% shooter from the field. But then again, he is a career 35% from downtown. Sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do. If you need threeecolas, Galloway has attempted 19 in the past two games. Chart the course. With each injury that the Pistons endure along the way, there will be minutes and shot attempts….and more, more like this….realize that you did it Galloway.
Here’s what else I saw last night:
Only played 27 minutes, as he missed most of the first half due to taking a knee to the hip. I am an AD owner in one league, so all of you that have joined the support group, there are churches that are open during the week. Seek and ye shall find. If you’re too lazy to do that, go online and donate to your favorite charity. Go forth and do good deeds so that the universe spreads good karma and heals AD. That’s how everything works, right?
Got the start and played 34 minutes. Over the last four games, Randle has been the #26 player for fantasy. 29.5 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists. The D stats are minimal (0.5 steals and blocks), but he’s contributed 1.5 threeecolas. If anyone desires to stab me in the back, I understand….and get it over with.
Played a team-high 40 minutes. So far this season, when AD has not been on the court, it has been Randle that has received the biggest increase in usage rate, while Holiday has barely ticked up. With that said, in the past, Jrue has usually seen massive increases in that department, and yesterday was a good example of that. Let’s not forget that it’s the Holiday season and AD is prone to getting nicked up.
Has started the last six games and put up 7.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 7.8 assists, and 0.8 steals in 30.2 minutes per game. He’s also contributed 1.2 threeecolas and shot 58% from the field and 43% from downtown. He’s been a top 100 player and Elfrid Payton is still a few weeks away from returning.
Played 30 minutes off the bench. He had recently been sick and lost some lbs, so that explains some of the lackluster performances recently.
Mr. Griffin is a top 50 player. We know about the points, rebounds, and assists, but he’s contributing 2.3 threeecolas a game. Not bad. We also know about the lack of D, but the main bugaboo is the increase in turnovers from 2.8 last season to 3.7 this year.
Look at me! Look at me! I am the real AD! Take it easy. Take it easy. You were yesterday, Dre. Work on your damn free throws, though.
Only played 26 minutes. Maybe Reggie misses Ish Smith. Well, Crockett would be lost without Tubbs. So would John without Ponch.
When a player you drafted severely underperforms, you got Batum’d.
Kemba was flirting with top 10 value earlier in the season. Since then, the threeecolas have been cut in half, the assists have ticked down, the efficiency has dropped, the usage rate declined by three, and the shot attempts have decreased by over four per game.
Oui, Oui! Only played 17 minutes. Is that why the Parisians are rioting?
Vonleh is a low usage player on offense, yet he’s just outside the top 100 for fantasy because he contributes a little something something in every category. God trusted Noah. So can you.
Started and played five minutes. I did not see any news of injury so….not so super.
Played 41 minutes. Build the fort now!!! We must protect this treasure!!!
Played 20 minutes off the bench. There’s gotta be a reason why Coach Fizdale doesn’t want to play Ntilikina, but he’s someone to monitor if he starts getting more minutes.
Who was hogging the ball yesterday? Even though Favors is only averaging 23 minutes per game, he’s a top 90 player for fantasy.
He got five on it. That’s a Jingles from the past.
Some enjoy the spinning tops, while others desire the roller coasters. Since you’re reading this blurb, you most definitely are a roller coaster person.
Over the last six games, Mitchell has been a top 50 player. The shooting percentage has been back above 44% from the field and….2 threeecolas and 2 steals a game!
Top 70 player for fantasy. It’s nice to see Gay balling out once again, with all the injuries that he’s suffered over the years. Back in 2014, he was a top 25 player.
The #22 player, despite not contributing many threeecolas. DeImpressive.
G is the #11 player. Very few threeecolas, the free throw percentage is under 70%, and the turnovers per game are over four. What a scrub.
It feels like BroLo blows, yet he’s a top 65 player for fantasy. Blocks and threeecolas are his specialties.
No wonder they traded for George Hill.
Over the past six games, Brogdon has been the #34 player. Middle schmiddle.
Top 50 player, as he’s shooting fewer threeecolas, which has spiked his efficiency from 48% to 54% shooting from the field.
Either Lowry has an injury or the spirit of Markelle Fultz has invaded his body. It’s not that he’s missing shots. It’s that he’s hesitant to even shoot his shot.
Played 27 minutes and is averaging 24 per game for the season. Assists, steals, and threeecolas are what’s on the menu, with upside for more when he gets the occassional start. Don’t discount the Fultz body snatching scenario for Lowry. Weirder things have happened.
