Welcome back Lady and Gents!  It’s time for another Thursday night recap!  Unfortunately, I didn’t have a lot of time to devote to this particular set of notes, so bear with me.  It’ll be much more in depth next week!

Jeff Teague – Actually had a solid game!  21 points and 10 assists with a block and 6 boards.  Who knows if he can keep doing this, but it definitely is an improvement.

Myles Turner – 11-14 from the field!  26/8/1/0/1 – No complaints, even though the line is a bit empty.  More than one block would be nice, but I’m nitpicking at this point.

Jrue Holiday –  16 points, 14 assists!  He’s backkkkkkk, and this REL owner couldn’t be happier.

Buddy Hield – Finally! 21 points with 5 treys.  He actually looked like an NBA player this game, so hopefully the trend continues.

Anthony Davis – Did Brow things with 35/16/0/0/5. The blocks were fantastic, and there’s not too much to say about him… Hopefully the training staff stays away from him.

Giannis Antetokounmpo – 30/14/3/3/1 – Another rainbow line for the Freak.  Ho Hum. Seriously though, JB nailed it with his rank this year.  Giannis can ball with the best of em.

Pau Gasol – The old man put up 18 and 9… Yep.  It’s the Spurs.. Kawhi Leonard is great, and everyone else is inconsistent.

Tony Parker – 11/1/1/1/0… Bleh, but he was +20 on the game, so there’s that… Better real life than fantasy, but I still don’t mind him if you need assists.

Devin Booker -17/4/5/2/0 You’d think this is a good game until you see the 4 TOs and 6-19 shooting.  For my part, I’ll pass.

Damian Lillard – Dame put up 40 and 10 assists this game… Not incredibly surprising in a high scoring game with this kind of pace, but impressive nonetheless!

Mason Plumlee – Plum continues his fantasy relevance with 19 points, 7 boards, and 2 steals.  Throw in the 8-10 shooting, and punt free throws, and he’s not bad!

Danilo Gallinari – 27/4/3/1/0 A solid line.  I’m not reading much into the good scoring night.

Gary Harris – Muh boy is back!  18/4/6/2/1 He did on only 11 shots, and added 3 from deep.  Doesn’t get much better.

 

I really wish I could watch some of the late game, but I think we all know that the Knicks don’t stand much of a chance.  I expect Klay Thompson kept up his hot shooting, but any of them could go off this game.  I promise I’ll be back with a thorough recap next week!

Happy Holidays everyone!

      @E: I don’t mind that, you may be able to get a little more for Howard, but I don’t mind it straight up with Drum, Capela, and Jordan on your team.

    Deal Rudy Gay for Noel and Dieng? Needing some bigs, but didnt know how low Gay’s value is. 9-Cat league punting TOs

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Chad Bowling: That seems fair to me – Maybe see if you can get someone with a better role than Nerlens, but there is upside there.

  3. Mikey Boy324 says:

    Would you trade Anthony Davis for Westbrook?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Mikey Boy324: That’s difficult. Probably. It’s a ballsy move, because you’re counting on AD to stay healthy, but if he does then it’s a steal. I’d do it, but make sure you’re willing to take that risk.

    I’ve been offered Garry Harris and jrue holiday for my Isiah Thomas (9cat league). My reaction was autodecline. But my friend told me he thinks its a fair deal. And then your recap was really excited about the two guys.

    What do you think of the offer?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Jesse: I like those two guys a lot, but I like Isaiah a lot more. Harris and Jrue, are both very good mid-round guys, but I never trade early round for guys for multiple mid round, unless it’s a really deep league.

      Best case scenario, it would be a fair deal, but I don’t see a ton of upside for you there. So it’s not an auto decline, but there’s also not enough there to make it worth while.

      • Jesse says:

        @Adam:

        Thanks for confirming my initial reaction!

    Hey Guys,

    I am in a ROTO, 9 Cat, 12 Teams league,

    My Stats: FG%-1, FT%-9, 3PTM-10.5, PTS-10, REB-11, AST-12, ST-11, BLK-1, TO-1

    My Team:
    G: Walker, Wall, Batum, Jackson, Gordon, Collison, Beverley
    F: Hayward, Porzingis, Harkless, Ilyasova,
    C: Horford, C Zeller

    I traded away Westbrook, Marvin Williams and Taj Gibson for Kemba, Gordon and Porzingis,

    Firstly was that a good trade? And secondly, I need blocks, I have been offered Pau, what do you think of him, he has less minutes and games right, is he still fantasy relevant? And who should I trade for him?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Shahed: I like that trade a lot actually.

      I don’t like Pau much, but given your situation, I’d deal him for someone like Beverly. I don’t know if the other owner would even consider that though haha.

      Possibly consider moving Batum for a shot blocker, this would boost your FG% as well.

    12 team, drop Nurk for Chriss? I invested heavily in Nurk this year and it’s weighing heavily on me 🙁

    • v00dr00 says:
      (link)

      @v00dr00: Oubre and Casspi are hanging out there too.

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @v00dr00: It’s sad, but yeah, I’d make that move. Chriss has a lot of upside. I don’t mind Casspi, but he’s more of a stream.

  7. Chad Bowling says:

    Tobias and Payton or Holiday and Crowder? 9-cat punting TOs

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Chad Bowling: Holiday and Crowder

  8. Bryce Krispie Treats says:

    Gary Harris is on my wire in my 12 team 5-cat league. Is this an obvious pickup?

  9. Dusty says:
    (link)

    not sure where to put this, but I saw on some of the player pages that the games played are 1 off in the top 3 charts vs the bottom 2.
    My best detective work says the December 2 games do not appear on the game logs or count towards the season stats in the top 3 charts. Maybe someone knows who to pass this along to?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Dusty: Hmmmm interesting… I’ll pass it along to JB!

  10. I am the Walrus says:
    (link)

    Drop T. Frazier for S. Rodriguez?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @I am the Walrus: I wouldn’t, Frazier looks legit.

  11. Toni Vidal Ribes says:

    I want let Justin Anderson on waiver.
    I can take Ross, CJ, Bellinelli, Carroll, Nick Young, Harkless, Oubre or Finney-Smith
    Wich would you take???
    Dinasty-12er-Roto-11-cat

    My team:
    G: Curry/Bledsoe/E. Gordon/Kilpatrick
    F: Lebron/Ibaka/ Parsons/Valentine/Justin
    C: Griffin/Dieng/Henson/Tyson/Kanter/O´Quinn

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Toni Vidal Ribes: FInney Smith is pretty tough to pass up, especially in Dynasty. I think that’s where I’m leaning.

      • Drez1 says:
        (link)

        @Adam:

        Does DFS look like the real deal? I’ve got him in a dynasty, but I’ve yet to actually see him play. I was just gonna flip him based on the hype (20 teamer, so we get excited easily, lol). I don’t mind stashing him if he’s got long-term potential, though. Sorry to hijack, but I can’t find much info on him. Thanks.

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @Drez1: Definitely has a lot of potential. Honestly, even the NBA scouts don’t know a lot about him, but he’s got a lot of drive, and good multicat potential. I think 12 points, 7 boards, a steal, a block and a 3 are the baseline stats for him. Not sure how high the ceiling is, but that’s extremely good in most deep dynasties.

  12. Rock says:

    Sup Adam,

    Drop nurk for chriss, monta, oubre, biyombo, mkg, brandon knight, or bazemore? (rank them too if you can)

    Thanks!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Rock: I’m gonna be bold and go Chriss, Knight, Ellis, and the others aren’t too relevant – Unless Bazemore gets hot or Porter goes down.

      I’d drop Nurk for Chriss.

      • Toni Vidal Ribes says:
        (link)

        @Adam:

        And drop Kanter for Chriss?

        Kanter plays low minutes versus small ball lineups and I don´t think OKC trade him because they need his bench scoring.

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @Toni Vidal Ribes: Yeah, I like that. Kanter is just points and boards anyway.

    Hey Adam,

    In 9 cat roto 12 team. I have Gary Harris still on IL and I need to drop a player. Should I drop Jon Leuer or Terence Jones?

    Terence Jones has potential and nice stats but Leuer puts more efficient stats. Jones free throws just might kill me

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Michael: Probably drop Leuer unless you’re really worried about the free throws. Jones can step into a huge role if AD goes down.

    Hey man,

    I’m in a standard 12 team 9 Cat ROTO league, I need to drop someone to activate Frazier, I have Nick Young, Stauskas and Bogdanovic, who would you drop? I’m currently top of my league, I like Young for the low turnovers, what do you think.

    Thanks,

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Shahed: Probably drop Sauce there

  15. Shahed says:

    Hey man,

    I’m in a standard 12 team 9 Cat ROTO league, I need to drop someone to activate Isaiah Thomas.

    G: Wall, McCollum, Teague, Batum, Matthews, Gary Harris, D’angelo, Lin
    F: Gay
    C: Drummond, Jordan, Howard, Capela

    My stats: FG% 12, FT% 1, 3PTS 6, PTS 12, REB 12, AST 10, ST 12, BLK 12, TO 1

    I’m currently top, what do you think? Or maybe do a trade instead of dropping someone?

    Thanks, my first year playing fantasy, you guys are awesome help

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Shahed: You really have to trade someone there… Maybe try moving Matthews, Gay or Batum.

  16. Steveo says:
    (link)

    I have T.Frazier and Barea on IR and T.Evans on waivers. Who should I keep?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Steveo: Frazier for me!

  17. Steve says:
    (link)

    Hey Adam, I’m in a 12-team points league. Who do you like best of Frazier, Thabo, and Chriss right now? Thanks!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Steve: I’m going Frazier there, but Chriss is really starting to make that tough.

  18. Michael Shoesmith says:
    (link)

    Dirk was dropped in my league. Worth a pickup in 12 man 9 cat?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Michael Shoesmith: Sorry for the slow response – hmnmmm I don’t see a reason to grab him unless you have no other options…

      • Michael Shoesmith says:
        (link)

        No worries thanks for the reply! Cheers.

    How would you rank Winslow, Richardson, Thebo and TJones? Thanks!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: TRich, Thabo, TJones, and Winslow I think.

    Hi Adam!

    I fall in Love with Jokic. I think he´s the future of Denver. Maybe best in fantasy than reallity. I would give Parsons And/or Kanter for him.

    What dou you think about that?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Toni Vidal Ribes: I wouldn’t mind either of em for Jokic – Jokic definitely has upside, and you wouldn’t be giving that much, so yeah, I wouldn’t mind. Not sure I’d give both, but they’re both borderline wire in a lot of leagues.
