Every Friday, I will update the below Google sheet. It will show the upcoming schedule for all teams with color coding for pace rankings. RED = slowest. YELLOW = middle of the pack. GREEN = fastest. Pace is the number of possessions a team has per game. More possessions increase the chances of more fantasy goodies. The data I use for pace, which is year-to-date, is from ESPN. I also want to give a shoutout to Hashtag Basketball, as their schedule grid is fantastic and allowed me to save time by not having to look at each teams schedule. Good luck next week!

    anyone we should target to get Deandre Ayton’s minutes?

    • Son

      Son says:

      Baynes

  2. Brickcity says:

    10 team 8cat roto, would you drop Sato (or drop Nurk and hold Bagley in IR) for Warren, Garyharris or MGasol?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Drop Nurk. Depends on your squad and what you need, but I like Harris in a vacuum out of all the players you listed

  3. Trader says:
    (link)

    Best on the wire: Baynes, Huerter, Olynyk, Mudiay, Crowder, Ish, Okogie. Need one to stream in Brunson’s spot. Any other swaps? Huerter gonna be a thing? Thanks for all you do.

    Harden, Holiday, VanVleet, Sato, Brunson,
    Bog Bog, Oubre, Covington, Love, Nance
    Vucevic, Bryant, Myles, Gasol (!),

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Baynes. I think Huerter will be a thing once he gets healthy

      • Trader says:
        (link)

        Surprised to see Atlanta in Red and San Antonio in green. Bizarro world

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Me too. Only one game, though, so I’m sure that will change once the sample size is larger

          • Trader says:
            (link)

            Ah, there you go. Smallest of sample sizes!
            Different things but I have to pick one from:
            Baynes, IT, Huerter, Brunson.

            My team looks well balanced. Good stocks perhaps a bit light in scoring.

            • Son

              Son says:
              (link)

              Hmmm, I like all of them. Baynes is the best out of the bunch, but he’s more big man stats. For the rest, I’d rank them Brunson, IT, and Huerter for now.

  4. I Just Wanna Kawhi says:
    (link)

    This is cool! Thanks for this, Son

    I’m dropping OG for Clarke. Tons of minutes but does not do enought with it. He is just too raw.

    Should we keep Barton or drop him for Warren?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I’m fine with the OG for Clarke move.

      I’d hold Barton….for now

  5. Ben says:

    Hi Son,

    Any early guys who were likely undrafted in a 13 team standard league who have impressed the past week?

    Along those lines, is Josh Hart worth adding over Shamet, Kleber, Hardaway Jr, or Seth Curry?

    Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      No idea who was/wasn’t drafted in your league, but maybe Devonte’ Graham, Kendrick Nunn, Mo Harkless, Coby White, and Brandon Clarke.

      I’d start Hart over those guys

      • Ben says:
        (link)

        Exactly what I was looking for, thanks. Are you taking the guys you named over the four I listed? Clarke and Coby are owned already, the others aren’t.

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Yes, I’d take a shot on those guys

    who you rolling with in a 9cat redraft rest of season

    coby white or reddish? thanksss

    • Jason says:

      Would you drop devonte graham, sato or Huerter for hachimura, nunn, or Hart?

      • Son

        Son says:
        (link)

        Depends on team needs

  7. Mr. Blast says:

    Ayo!

    Great grid! I will be using this for DFS.

    A little disappointed with the start of my PGs Jrue/Conley/Rozier

    Pretty sure they will be better tho.

    The squad –

    Jrue/Conley/Lowry/Rozier
    Oubre/Levert/Herro/Hunter/Tucker/Danny Green
    Jokic/Vucevic/Bryant/McGee/Timelord

    Couple things going on here. I have a few weak spots in Tucker, McGee, Timelord

    Danny Green is even border line for me..

    This is a pretty deep 12 team league with 15 man rosters, so the FA pool is pretty dry.

    I usually like to have at least 4-5 startable Centers. & I feel like I really only have 3 right now in Jokic/Vucci/Bryant. Can’t trust McGee or Robert Williams.

    Should I hold them for now ? Would Tucker be my drop over them ?

    Only thing really appealing out there is Devonte Graham, Baynes, Paschall, Holmes, Bertans, Bjelica.

    Looking for long term moves

    Any advice helps, Thanks Son!

    BTW – I’m destroying my opponent right now. So I’m not overly concerned.

    I just always want more (insert devil horn emoji)

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Ayo! Thanks, Mr. Blast!

      Yeah, Jrue, Conley, and Rozier have been brutal. I’m not worried about Jrue and Conley. Rozier, on the other hand? The money paid limits some of that concern, but Graham could be an issue.

      Baynes is a must own for as long as Ayton is out. All the others are meh.

      Ha! As Gordon Gecko said, “Greed is good.”

      • Mr. Blast says:
        (link)

        Timelord for Baynes ?

        McGee for Bertans ? Or hold ?

        Eagerly waiting on a Jrue update -_-

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          I’m a Time Lord guy but Baynes will have more value while Ayton is out

          Rather have Bertans

          Good luck on Jrue

          • Mr. Blast says:
            (link)

            Thanks Son.

            Made the Time Lord to Baynes swap.

            If he couldn’t get it going with Kanter & Theis both out last night,, iono.

            You think McGee for Bertans tho ?

            Feel like I’m losing my blocks with the above drop & McGee..

            Dwight over there, plus them running AD at the 5, got me thinking Javale’s value is way down now…. maybe give him one more night ? (tonight)

            Also looking at maybe a Hunter for Jerami Grant swap ?

            Or Hunter for Bertans. Patience with Hunter/McGee ?

            I’m itchy man!

            • Son

              Son says:
              (link)

              I like Time Lord for the future, but Baynes has more value right now.

              As for McGee, depends if you need blocks. Bertans is going to get more minutes and provide more points and tres. With how successful the AD at 5 lineup was, I’d imagine the Lakers use that more often.

              I like Hunter, but I don’t hate it if you go with Grant.

              Patience, Mr. Blast. Patience. Have reasons for making a move. Don’t just make moves to make moves. If you feeling like that, stand up and start jiggling your body

  8. IntendedSteb says:
    (link)

    Hey Son, have values on the Trade Analyzed been updated for this season? Some of the totals don’t add up, specifically Simmons with more value than Jokic.
    Also I got an offer for my AD for Jokic/Leonard. Should I do it?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Not sure on the Trade Analyzer. Will get in contact with Rudy. What’s rest of squad look like?

  9. Ace says:

    Hey Son,

    my team :
    – Kemba, lowry, rozier, lou wil, money green
    – Miles bridges, thad young,lamb
    – KAT, aldridge,mcgee

    would you trade rozier for otto ?? h2h, 9 cat, 14 teams

    thanks Son

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I wouldn’t.

      • Ace says:
        (link)

        okay… Would you drop anyone of my team for waiver ??

        Waiver list : barton, olynyk, knox, shamet, kanter, mikal, osman, portis

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Naw, I like your squad the way it is

  10. Jason says:
    (link)

    Drop sato or devonte graham for hachimura? Who, if any in a vacuum?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Maybe Graham but not Sato.

  11. Trader says:
    (link)

    Hard to see Gasol at this stage of his career and in this offense. I think he gets traded. Is it possible Olynyk or Baynes hold more value now or try to be patient a few weeks?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I’d rather have either than Gasol. When Ayton returns, though, then the value of Baynes gets nuked

      • Trader says:
        (link)

        Yep. Baynes and Frank the Tank for a few weeks.

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Yup

  12. I Just Wanna Kawhi says:
    (link)

    Hey bud I got an interesting question. Would you drop Barton for Dinwiddie? The thing is we have Kyrie and I believe Spencer should be a great handcuff to him. What do you say?

    But damn I love Barton’s game.

    9c/10t

    -G-
    Kyrie
    Booker
    Gilgeous-Alexander
    Richardson
    Bledsoe
    -F-
    Oubre
    Prince
    Anunoby
    Barton
    -C-
    Jokic
    Ayton
    Turner
    Robinson

      I’m good with that

  13. Tyl says:
    (link)

    Hey Son!

    8team h2h
    Drop PJ Washington for Otto, Jaylen Brown, Prince, Bridges or Anunoby?

    Nunn, Wright, Sato are also available but I’m already set with guard stats

    Team is
    G- Lillard Beal Trae SGA Lowry
    F- Oubre Draymond Randle
    C- Vuc Horford JJJ Sabonis

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Yeah, you good with guards. I’d hold PJ

  14. Trader says:
    (link)

    At times I feel badly peppering you with questions. But then I remember Grey saying that you get a whopping .2345 of a cent for each so now I feel better LOL. Guy is funny.

    Best on wire: Kaminsky, Huerter, Baynes, Ish. Any swaps out of my roster? H2h, 9 cats.

    Harden, Holiday, Sato, IT, VanVleet
    Love, Covington, Oubre, Nance, BogBog
    Myles, Bryant, Olynyk, Vucevic

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Grey is getting .2345 cents!!!! I want a raise, Grey!!! I’m only getting .000000002345.

      I’d rather have Baynes than Olynyk while Ayton is out

      • Trader says:
        (link)

        I may have missed a few decimal points!

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Ha!

  15. Chris says:
    (link)

    Thanks son!!

    What do you think about this trade?

    Conley for Jae Crowder and Wesley Matthews.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I prefer the Conley side

  16. Chris says:
    (link)

    Thanks I was leaning that way also. NOw he offered Crowder Matthews and Zeller for Conley. Still Conley?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Affirmative

  17. Chris says:
    (link)

    Oh no my bad he wants Brook Lopez for Matthews Conley and Zeller. Lopez side?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      How are you in blocks? Do you need assists? If you acquire two extra players, who are you dropping?

  18. Chris says:
    (link)

    Ok, so here’s my team again:

    Centers Start 2-B Lopez and Dedmon Collins c,f
    Guards start 5 -Beal Conley Lowry Ross Garland Augustin clarkson
    Forwards Start 5-Tatum Saric Prince Portis Bajeica-Bagley (Hurt right now)

    This week I was strong on Blks-Reb-Assists-Steals and 3’s very week on FG% average on free throw % and a little below average on points. I know Lopez kills it in Blocks 3’s FT% but hes horrible for rebounds and FG%. any thoughts on trades you might look at if you were me?

    I’m looking through the rosters now thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have. I know it’s tough without seeing the other teams. I hate to give up those blocks 3’s and FT% with Lopez. I don’t think I have a bad team and I think it will get a lot stronger once Bagley comes back.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I actually think you’re light in blocks and boards. I would not make that Lopez trade. Strongest cat looks to be tres

  19. Chris says:
    (link)

    ok thanks. It’s a 12 team league and if I was top 3-5 in any category I considered my team strong. Unfortunaetly in h2h this week I did not have a lot of luck! True roto would have faired much better!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Lot of variance in h2h

  20. AJ says:
    (link)

    Hey Son. I’m in a 12 team H2H PTS league. Would you drop any of these players for IT? Dwight Howard/Joe Harris or Collin Sexton? I currently Have AD/Love/Zeller at C/PF and CP3/Delon Wright at PG. Im kinda thin a SF until PG13 returns. Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Joe Harris

  21. Cohen says:
    (link)

    SON, lookin for pts and tres
    Hold Winslow or drop for Barton, Sexton or G.Harris?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Then Sexton

  22. Jeff aces says:
    (link)

    Hey son

    Would you trade sabonis and a 3rd Rd pick for Kevin Love?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I’m an ageist so I normally wouldn’t make that trade, but do you think you have a shot to win it all? Even though it’s super early in the season

  23. I Just Wanna Kawhi says:
    (link)

    Overall and ROS value—-drop Barton or Saric for WCS?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I would not

  24. Tyl says:
    (link)

    Hey Son,

    What are your thoughts on Draymond? Is he a drop in shallow 8 team leagues for a streamer?

    We still have PJ Washington Miles Bridges Otto Porter Isaiah Thomas Nance WCJ Wright Warren Danny Green WCS Portis Prince on the wire

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I’d see if you can trade him away first. Maybe in a package. As for ww, I do like PJ, Miles, Otto, and WCJ

  25. eballs says:
    (link)

    Points league. Can only play one

    Start Ibaka @ MIL tonight or Holmes @ NY tomorrow?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Holmes for me but there’s risk

  26. Ben says:
    (link)

    $200 auction league, a guy who is rebuilding is selling Vuc ($27, can’t be kept) and Paul George ($44). I have Brogdon ($11, keepable next year at $14) and Mitchell Robinson ($11 for this year and next, $14 the following year), who he likes. I think my team is competitive this year, and I have plenty of cap space. Do you see a deal there? I really like my contracts, but if Vuc/PG are that much better maybe I should make a swap. Thanks!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      That is tough. I love Brogdon and his contract, and have some concerns regarding PG. With that said, I think you have to make that move

  27. Ben says:
    (link)

    Thanks, it doesn’t have to be a 2-2, Brogdon and MRob are just the guys he likes. I could try MRob for Vuc, though if MRob has learned to shoot FTs he’s going to be a monster for years.

    Also, picking up Holmes over Len? How about Portis over Seth Curry?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Got it. I’d hold onto Brogdon if you can. MRob for Vuc in a heartbeat.

      I’m good with Holmes over Len. Portis over Curry as well

      • Ben says:
        (link)

        Thanks, I may try that, my only hesitation is how cheap MRob is for a few years. Guess I may need to make the move to help win now though.

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          I hear you. The price is nice, but Vuc is a proven, all-around contributor. MRob is a blocks specialist and is prone to fouling a lot. Plus, he could get Fizdale’d at any time. MRob is young and will likely improve, while Vuc is getting older and could slip, but I go Vuc probably 9 out of 10 times here

  28. stevie says:
    (link)

    Trade offer. Lonzo Ball for Mitchell Robinson. Any thoughts?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      What’s context?

      • stevie says:
        (link)

        Weekly head-to-head, here’s my roster
        Guards- Lillard, Lowry, G. Hill, D. Wright, Richardson
        Forwards- Miles Bridges, Nance, Wood, T. Young, Tucker
        Centers- Gobert, Aldridge, Robinson
        Never been a big Lonzo fan, but maybe I can use the assists help?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          You’d get a bump in tres and dimes.
          You go down in boards and blocks. You had an excess of boards, so you’d still be competitive in blocks.

          I probably make the trade, but comes down to personal preference

  29. Trader says:
    (link)

    I streamed House for the next two days. Any hope he could be a hold in a 12 teamer? Out of position blocks have been of interest with Myles being out for a bit.

    Also, Rudy’s trade analyzer is a fun tool. It is odd though to see that many players still have their old teams assigned to them.

    Happy Sunday!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I think so. He’s getting the minutes.

      Rudy is a wizard. Ok, thanks for the heads up.

  30. J says:
    (link)

    What do you think of giving up Brogdon / Gallo for Butler / Rubio?

    Love Brogdon but feel like his value will lessen a bit when Victor eventually returns and Jimmy is kind of the guy in Miami. Gallo is solid but Rubio providing some assists that I’d be losing with Brogodon gone

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I like the thinking. Sounds good to me

  31. Trader says:
    (link)

    Butler is a beast again. Fun to see. Wish I had him. Now on to my world: Sato, Delon, House and BogBog are on my squad. Wire has Warren, Bjelica, Huerter and Gasol.

    H2h nine cats. Who stays, who goes?

    Also Lamb looks passive today right after I acquired him. Ugh. Warren super aggressive.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Bjelica for Bog. Then swap to Huerter when Bagley returns, if he’s still available

  32. Trade says:
    (link)

    would you trade bam for draymond?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Negative

  33. Trader says:
    (link)

    Have an offer of his B Clarke for my BogBog. Given Bog is a potential cut from my squad, I think I take this for upside??

    The second option is my Nance and Bog Big for his Clarke and Ibaka. I have Love too and just think Nance is like a handcuff so am leery of letting him go.

    Thoughts on each trade option!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Yup. I’m good with that trade. The first one

  34. sebapargue says:
    (link)

    Hey Son! Here again….this guy sent me a pretty interesting offer: his devonte graham and miles bridges for my oladipo. (we have IL)…..would you go for it or stay put and reap the benefits of oladipo later? I would be droping justin holiday and either one of hunter, white or kanter.

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I would personally take Graham and Bridges here, but I’m super conservative when it comes to injured players. It comes down to your personal philosophy. You drafted Oladipo for a reason.

  35. Pablo says:
    (link)

    How do you feel about holding Goga in a keeper league? He’s taking up my last roster spot, and debating whether to drop and use as a streamer spot or hold as a stash. I like what I’ve seen from him in limited minutes, and hoping he can carve out some decent minutes even with Turner coming back.

    It’s a 14 team league, so not much on waivers. Current options out there would be guys like Diallo, Culver, Bazemore, Simons.

    Thanks.

    • Son

      Son says:

      In a keeper league, I’d keep Goga.

    Assists look like my biggest weakness in my roto league. I’m first in 3s by a lot and have Dame dripping 60 burgers for me, so what do you think about moving Buddy for Van Vleit or Jamal Murray? Either seem like fair deals? He needs 3s bad

    • Son

      VanVleet in a heartbeat, but with Lowry out, that may be difficult

        He probably won’t play much, if at all

      Really depends on the context of your league/team and who you added.

        Really? Its an 8cat 12 team league. I did it cause im afraid of oladipo…. i will pick up hachimura…

          I understand your thinking. If you are anxious about Oladipo, then it’s fine to make the trade, as it appeases your emotional state. Are you good in assists though? What’s the rest of the squad look like? Bottom line, do you think you made your team better?

            i taded away the number 8 player in fantasy so i dont think i got better right now. But brogdons assists are comming down a little allready.Qhen he has to share the ball i can only see them go down more…

            For assists I got giannis, fox, murray and mitchell gives 5 too so i think ill be ok. I was a little low on 3pm so i’ve made an upgrade there i think. Prior to last night i was thinking of dropping dinwiddie so i dont calculate him in the trade…

            So i thought i get a sure top 15/20 player for a hot guy with question marks and i pulled the trigger

            Time will tell… Tnx for the advice

              The logic is sound. You had a vision and executed it. That’s all that matters.

    Drop Clarke for Favors, Powell, Smart, Nance, Millsap, Washington, Holmes, Gasol, Nunn, Tucker, Hachimura

    I wanted to keep Clarke since I own JJJ as well but since its an 8team, is there anyone who is a must own among these FAs available?

    Needing a two for one with injured players due back this week. Thoughts on my Nance and B Brown for his OG? Rose and Frazier back so thinking this might be Bruce’s top value?

    Hi Son, the matches on the sheet are from week 4. Although at the bottom left it said week 5. Perhaps there’s a link to the sheet maybe?

    Is there something I’m missing – another tab or something?

    This looks like the schedule for last week and not this week. Nov 18th – Nov 24th
