…title sounds like some sort of Adult Swim episode.  Something the Squidbillies might do!  Oh man, what a time to be a Nikola Jokic owner!  I don’t know if any top-50 pick has played with your emotions quite like this!  It’s like the crazy hot girlfriend in college – and might as well be a crazy hot redhead because ginger girls are nuts!  She’s hot as hell at first, goes a little nuts on you early on, but the hotness keeps you around.  16/8/11/0/1 last night on 6-12 shooting, and point guard-ing the shit outta that game last night!

He was dishing so good, I decided to edit together that GIF this time!  And it was tough to show only 15 seconds worth!  Perils of trying to explain why you’re hanging out with a hot redhead that is acting nuts in your dorm (I have no personal experience here…)…  it takes some finesse explaining it!  Anyway, the Nuggets are looking soooooo much better with Jock Itch running the point: after ups and downs with his AST, since Dec 10th when he got 6 dimes, the Nuggets are 6-3 over the last 9 games with Jokic averaging 5.7 dimes and 67.7% shooting from the field.  While the dimes from a C are beastly and all, he still only has 19 STL and 19 BLK on the season, good for 0.7/0.7.  I thought my #44 overall rank was going to end up being bold, but turns out the hype machine pushed him top-30 in several ranks/draft selections, which made his value a little bit of a bubble.  But thankfully if you gutted through that rough November, you’ve got a mad case of Jock Itch keeping you red hot right now!  Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy hoops action:

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Buzzing again as a pickup option (pun police!), going 12/6/4/2/0 last night.  It’s bleh, but usable with the upside for some DDs.  Kinda like your crazy hot college girlfriend who wants a boob job…  Is this theme getting run into the ground yet?!

Nicolas Batum Tripdub flirt!  20/9/8, and shoots 8-12.  He’s actually shot pretty well the last 4.  When he shoots efficiently, he kills it for ya.

Elfrid Payton The flip side of efficient shooting was Elfird last night, 2-10!  27 horrible minutes, but the Magic played through the dregs of their line-up and punted this one after a terrible third quarter.

Serge Ibaka The only Orlandoian to show up, going 20/7/3/0/3 with 2 treys.  That said, led the team at -26.  I was about to pile onto Orlando’s roster comp issues, but they’re 15-19?!  Wow, that ain’t as bad as I thought!

Aaron Gordon Hahahahaha!  Figures.  Off a second 30-burger in the span of two weeks, goes right back to being unusable for 2/4/2/0/0 on 1-5 shooting in 25 minutes.  I think he might actually be Teen Wolf.  It has to be a full moon for him to play well – only happens once a month.

I think we have a new nickname for Aaron Gordon! Teen Wolf!

Paul George Haven’t really talked about him a ton, but after a little mini-slump, 34/3/4/1/0 with 6 treys and no TO last night.  That’s an R rated line right there!

Thaddeus Young It’s low volume, but his FT% has somehow sunk to a career-worst 50%.  11/6/3 last night with 1-3 FT and 4 turnovers.  Just gets saved with 6 steals.  It’s what he does, but still feels pretty bleh to me overall.

C.J. Miles 15/3/1/0/0 with 4 treys.  ThrAGNOF!

John Wall So good.  36/11/9/2/0 on 11-19 FG (2-3 3PTM 12-13 FT).  After dogging the Wizards over the first month of the year, they’re suddenly 15-16 after beating the Pacers last night.  Really is putting this team on his shoulders.  Wall Shrugged!  Who is John Wall?

Carmelo Anthony Ejected for being a punk and throwing a little jab at Thabo Sefolosha‘s neck.  It was dumb.  Who does he think he is trying to hurt Thabo, an NYPD officer?!

Kristaps Porzingis Took a little more onus, but kinda had a rough line.  24/8/1/1/3 is awesome with 4 treys, but 6-9 FT and 5 TO.  That said… This:

Get outta there!  Then get back in there!  What a Golden Goose…

Derrick Rose Meh.  26/7/6.  Hurray for 3-cat only leagues!  9-28 FG, no treys, no D stats.  Typical Poppycock.

Justin Holiday Got the extra run with Melo being a dunce, going 14/3/4/2/1 in 34 minutes.  But not much to see here.

Kent Bazemore 11/1/4/0/0 with 3 TO in 40 minutes…  40!  OT-aided, sure, but that’s pretty Tayshaun Prince-esque.

Paul Millsap Love the line!  12/7/6/1/2 with a trey and no TO!  But dude must’ve pregamed with Willie Nelson or somethin’, 4-20 from the field!  Did take that tough shot to the eye last time out, so maybe got some of that medical marahoochy to help ease the pain!

Jabari Parker Whoa, look out for Bari!  31/9/7/1/0 on 13-18 shooting with 4 treys.  Probably his best game in the NBA.  The Pistons looked atrocious though, I might try to sell high off this one.  But it would have to be mad high, his TO rate for all his USG is phenomenal and he’s at a career -best 49.5% from the field despite taking treys now and making 1.3/per.  Just wish the FT were a little better, but man he’s been kinda a quiet breakout.

Malcolm Brogdon Another team with PG issues in the fantasy context, with Broggy Brog getting the most minutes this time over Matthew Dellavedova, going 8/1/8/1/0 in 28 mins.  I pimped out Brogdon as a value coming out of the draft (ACC bias!) and he’s really delivering as a 2nd rounder!

Weird Pistons Stuff – Wow, the Pistons starting 5 had all of – get this – 2 TO.  Had a 20:2 AST:TO from the starting 5, yet they got rocked by the Bucks…  And we’re still getting weird F minutes, with Jon Leuer still starting and still being blah (9/7/4/0/0), Tobias Harris cruising (23/12/2/0/0) and Marcus Morris the enigmatic wild card (11/2/3/0/0 in only 23 minutes).

Austin Rivers Woohoo for streaming!  22/4/0/2/0 with J.J. Redick out (hammy).  They lost to the Pels, but Rivers and Chris Paul (who returned from his own absence due to a hammy) looked OK together.  Redick was a game-time call, but Rivers is getting big minutes either way with all the injuries.  I might give him a medium-term hold in 12ers even though it’ll bottom out sooner than later, even with family preferential treatment…

DeAndre Jordan 25 rebounds.  That said, a loss by 4 on a 3-8 FT shooting night.  I’d still love to see how many Clippers games would’ve been won if DJ was a 100% FT shooter.  I think the answer could be hilarious.

Tim Frazier Wowwwwwwww.  DNP-CD.  Way to completely shit on your best player from the first few weeks not named Brow.  Tyreke Evans got 16 bench minutes of 12/5/5 and Langston Galloway has run away with the 6th man role, going 12/4/0/1/1 with a trey in 31 bench minutes.

Buddy Hield Only 23 minutes is a little interesting since he was hot, shooting 7-11 FG with 3 treys for 17/6/0/2/0.  Kinda hot the last 2 games now, but not enough minutes to be anything but a ThrAGNOF.

Jimmy Butler Jimmy Buckets!  Jimmy Mother F’in Big Balls Buckets!

Wait, why is BoBo the friggin’ clown playing defense on Butler on this pivotal shot here.  I use “defense” loosely as well…  Why not put friggin’ RHJ out there for some tighter D?!  Monster game-winner, monster line (40/11/4/4/0 14-29 FG 11-11 FT), just full Godzilla on this one!

Rajon Rondo He’s been OK!  5/9/12/2/0.  Sure he shoots terrible, but it’s low volume and the TO at 2.8 are doable given he hits AST/STL.  Still don’t understand the flack I got for ranking him OK (cough, Adam, cough)…

Sean Kilpatrick Well, so far so good handling a little more facilitating!  18/3/6/1/0 with 4 treys and only 2 TO.  Love me some Sean Kill!

Brook Lopez Brolo takes down Rolo!

33/3/4 with 5 treys and one family poster for Brolo.

Kawhi Leonard Ugh, stupid last minute DNPs due to diarrhea!  Happening all over the NBA!  The NBA must have some sort of sponsorship deal with Chipotle.

Kyle Anderson Got the start, and didn’t do anything.  Jonathon Simmons got a few extra minutes, and didn’t do anything either…  Spurs carried by the old guys!

LaMarcus Aldridge The mad efficient monster game of yesteryear is back!  27/8/2/1/1 on 10-12 shooting with no TO.  It’s like he’s back to that first-round Roto beast at the end of his Blazers run!  …Pop will bench him tomorrow…

T.J. Warren Nice bounce back after a rough game last time out, going 6-12 FG 10-10 FT for 23/6/1/1/1 and a trey.  Glad to see this head issue looks to have worked its way out!

Dragan Bender For the love of blowout minutes!  27 minutes for Bender, going 10/4/1/1/1 with no TO, and 4-4 FG making both his treys.  Where’d this come from?!  Damn I overlooked his last game I guess too, 11/13/2/3/2 rainbow against the Rockets.  Both were in garbage time, but it looks like he’s firmly in the rotation and not like the Suns are winning games anyway.  Maybe a flier-streamer in 12ers, but I’d be scooping him up in anything deeper.

Karl-Anthony Towns Not to be outshined by Jock Itch in the MIN vs. DEN game last night, tripdub alert!  15/11/10/0/2 with a trey.

Gorgui Dieng Choo choo!  20/8/1/1/1 on 9-11 shooting with 2-2 FT.  I know he hasn’t quite taken off like a Snowpiercer, but he’s been chugging along like a pretty elite train!

Ricky Rubio Slicky Ricky!  18/8/7/4/0, but what in the hell is he doing taking 14 shots?!  5-14 from the field, and an ugly 1-7 from deep.  Does make his 7-7 freebies though…

Gary Harris This is about the happy medium I kinda expected.  Solid, but just OK.  17/4/1/0/0 on 7-12 shooting with 2 treys.  It’s fine!  But not the nutso we got right when he got back.

Will Barton only 19 minutes and 6 points.  Why he’s tough to be a “must-hold” in 12ers.  I’m not going out of my way to drop him after this game, but it’s more like Will the Still.

Jusuf Nurkic I watched most of his minutes last night, and it’s absurd he only got 8:40 of run!  Played mad hard and gave the bench great energy after the starters were a little flat in the first quarter –  powering a nice 2nd quarter run.  4/4/1/0/1 on 2-2 shooting, did have 2 TO again though…  Maybe that’s why he didn’t play more.  But looked great, and a nice step forward to get back into the rotation.

Matt Barnes – Another start with Rudy Gay‘s hip still flaring up, going 13/5/2/1/1 with a trey in 29 minutes.  This blurb was more about mentioning Gay being out, I want no part of streaming Barnes…

Darren Collison Here’s yet another NBA team with PG an abyss.  Drop Colly in 12ers, enough is enough.  20 minutes of 6/1/5/0/0 on 2-7 shooting, while Ty Lawson gets 29 minutes of 8/1/1/1/0.  It’s too painful, I can’t do it anymore!

C.J. McCollum Nice win for the Blazers who had absolutely fallen apart, and beat a hot SAC team without Damian Lillard (kankle).  20/2/7 in a decent enough showing despite shooting 6-18.

Moe Harkless 33 efficient minutes shooting 5-7 and finally getting back into the 3PTM column making 2 triples, but 12/4/1/1/0 with 2 TO is still soooo boring for me.  I know, I know, “why JB gotta be, Moeeee Harklessssssss!” about it?!

Meyers Leonard 16/5/1/0/1 off the bench with 3 treys in 25 minutes.  He’s had 2 16 point games lately, but the minutes are way too sporadic and I still don’t think he’s that good…  He’s like a ThrAGNOF, low-rent version of Aaron Gordon – looks like he has all these physical tools, but they only show up once in a full moon.

DeMar DeRozan I said this the other day too, what’s with the multi-cat?!  Just score, baby!  29/5/6/3/1 on 10-23 shooting with 9-10 FT and 0 TO.  Well, OK, if you wanna score AND multi-cat, that works for us!  Beastmode in a great game as the Raptors tried to come back after a horrific 42-17 first quarter…

Jonas Valanciunas Only 21 minutes as his run is bottoming out lately.  That said, the Warriors are a horrible matchup for “true centers”.  I am gonna float some buy lows off this game.

Terrence Ross Rosssss can!  24/7/1/2/0 with no TO on 10-23 shooting with 4 treys.  Second unit trying to bring em back!  He’s playing by far the best ball of his career, yet it’s in the lowest amount of run off the bench.  Per-36s are off the charts better…  If anything were to happen to DeRozan, he could really take off.  I think he might be one of the only “handcuffs” I’d try to own backing up my stars.

Patrick Patterson As I mentioned the other day, I still hate him now for dirty fouls, but I still streamed him where available haha…  5/5/0/1/1 with a trey last night in 33 pretty bad minutes, but hey, Pit Pat will make some 3s at some point and they had a back-to-back with the Suns on the slate tonight.  Then he’s getting chucked out the window like a filling breakfast burrito.  Baxter!!!

Kevin Durant Quintuple double alert!  22/17/7/0/5…  But the hidden 6 TO!  Hah.  3 treys as well in an epic line, but why the TO, KD?!

Draymond Green This team is a fantasy-goodness machine.  Rainbow for Dray for 14/6/10/2/2 with 2 treys.

 

Whew, big night last night!  With fantasy football [mostly] wrapped up, the NBA is taking off with some awesome action the past week!  Thanks every for dropping by, and this is my last notes for the year…  2017 here we come.  Thanks to all of you awesome readers and commenters for checking us out, and here’s to 2017!

    Hey jb what’s going on? Just dropped speights for brogdon and thinking of dropping Harrell for ross. I was thinking next week I’m going to move blake out of the IL spot and stash Middleton or is it too soon?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Clos: What’s up man?! Def good with the Brogdon move but I would hold Harrell over Ross. Can’t trust Ross’s minutes at all. Ummmm, I’d probably just keep Blake there than waste a roster spot

  2. JJ says:
    (link)

    Have a great upcoming new years!!

    Would you drop Henson or TJones to use #1 waiver on Greg Monroe?

    Also on the wire: Sergio. Brogdon

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @JJ: Thanks man, you as well! Meh, I’m not big on Monroe, I don’t mind losing Henson for him though. Sergio I might get first esp. if a PG need

  3. Jeremy says:

    Guy offered me Durant for Isaiah Thomas and Gobert. Any interest?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jeremy: Whoa. In a 10er I’m def taking that. 12er is close but I like getting KD as best in deal I’d prob do it there too

  4. Dusty says:

    Here is what I figure for if DeAndre Jordan made 100% of his free throws. Regular season and playoffs, he has played in 308 losses over 9 seasons, 24 of those he missed more free throws than they lost by and 11 he missed the same amount as they lost by.
    In 30 playoff losses, 6 of those they would have won if he made 100%.
    Would be wins-would be ties-total losses (avg misses per loss)
    2016/17: 3-0-12 (2.58)
    2015/16: 5-3-30 (5.20)
    2014/15: 7-2-33 (3.39)
    2013/14: 3-2-32 (2.09)
    2012/13: 1-2-30 (1.87)
    2011/12: 1-0-33 (1.21)
    2010/11: 0-1-49 (0.96)
    2009/10: 2-0-47 (1.26)
    2008/09: 2-1-42 (1.43)

    There is your DJ fill of the day.

      @Dusty: Hahaha this is awesome, thanks for researching this! 24 reg season games in 9 years isn’t so bad. But 6 playoff losses damn! 7 more wins in 14-15… This is great stuff thanks man!

  5. Not Your Average Joe says:
    (link)

    Yo JB! Argh. Someone else snagged Barton from me by bidding more. I’m basically willing to drop:

    TyJo (bad fg%, stuck in 6th man even if they trade Dragic)
    Harkless (FG% and D-stats are nice but there isn’t much else)
    RoLo (what’s the appeal besides FG% and blocks? He’s terrible elsewhere, including TOs)

    The following are available:
    Sweet Lou (such a solid year)
    Kilpatrick (solid scoring and boards, but so many TOs and a lack of D stats)
    Ersan (unspectacular D stats but a more solid SF/PF this year than credited)

    As an additional note, any of these would be keepers at an 11th round price. Who are my add/drops?

    Team: Lowry, Conley, TyJo, Beal, Batum, Harkless, Parsons, Millsap, Zingis, Gobert, RoLo
    Len (long term project)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Not Your Average Joe: Gotcha, well I def like Sweet Lou and Kilpat as adds! I would be fine losing Harkless and Rolo for those 2

  6. Nick says:

    Got a trade offer in Dynasty. I’ve been pushing for over a week to get Horford and the guy wanted Lavine AND Dipo to start….so he’s a bit of a moron, just not the favourable one right now.

    Latest offer is Horford + Collison for Adams + Lavine. I feel like I shouldn’t do this trade but I wanted to double check. I’m still of the belief that Lavine for Horford straight up isn’t that far off in Dynasty but I gotta do a bit of overpaying I think to get my guy here and then I can draft a PG in next years loaded PG class.

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick:
      I asked for Wade BTW as the kicker instead of Collison. Is that more fair? Or alternatively I could include Harkless or Harris as my kicker instead of Adams. What do you think?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Nick: Ugh yeah that’s not a fun offer in dyno haha. Yeah I’m passing on that deal, way it’s going now, Colly might not get starting money/role as a FA. Harkless and LaVine is closer, but I woudl want a better kicker than Colly or Wade

        • Nick says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin:
          Thanks, yeah no deal went down. As bad as I need another PF/C that can get some blks I hate the thought of making a bad trade to do it.

          Interesting thing to, which I’m not sure many people have looked into is building a roster around guys that typically play on offsetting nights (tues, thurs for example). We can only roster 7 guys/night and I accidentally landed a roster that each week seems to get me more games than my opponent due to a lot of these “off night” players. So when I looked into the trade a bit more for playoff time, having Adams + dipo or Lavine was actually better then guys like Wade and especially Horford because they’re teams play on nights when there’s 10 other games going on.

          There’s my “cool story bro” moment of the day. Sorry that you had to read it haha

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Nick: Nice glad you held off there. Interesting, yeah with a tighter starting roster if def helps! I’m used to RCLs where you start 10 of your 13 players you own, so rarely do you have roster crunches. Hah that is a very good comment, good to remember to tell people if they have a similar league setting!

  7. Yan Yala says:

    Wassup JB, help me with my 10 team, 9 cat, most categories win. Got offered Jock Itch+Ariza for my Marc Gasol+ TJ Warren. What do you think

    Pg-CP3, Holiday, Conley
    Sg- Tyreke, Tony Allen (streamer)
    Sf- TJ Warren, Crowder, Gay
    Pf- Whiteside, Myles Turner, Mirotic (streamer)
    C- Brolo, M. Gasol
    IR- Oladipo

    Pull the trigger or nah? Think I accidentally am punting points and ft% ( Whiteside :'( )

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Yan Yala: Hmmmm, it’s def pretty close. You have great “true C” numbers which helps the cause. Gasol has been so good and I dunno about the FG% hit. Uggghhhh I’m struggling, but gun to my head I think I take it bc I feel safer with Ariza>Warren

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Yan Yala: I like this trade for you because it fills your SG/3’s/steals need. Plus Gasol isn’t going to play all year. I trust Joc more because of the age & miles difference. Gasol hasn’t exactly been the poster boy of health over the years

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Yan Yala: @Bye Felica: Why are your sure Marc is playing all year? But yeah 3s and STL could use a boost and I liked it too

  8. Justin says:
    (link)

    Hey, so I need 3’s and based on the numbers I think stick with Swaggy but was thinking maybe get Kilpatrick instead. I also need blocks and I have Bismack, I know MKG wouldn’t really fit the role but I kind of want to add him instead. If you have time…..appreciate the help!

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Justin: I rather have Kilpatrick than Young.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Justin: @Bye Felica: Yeah I would def go for Kilpatrick. Swaggy P has a lot of value still stuck in that hot start. And yeah MKG might be lighter in blk, but based on everything else he does I would make that swap too. Any time!

    Hi JB and Razzball,
    Happy Holidays!
    Lin was just dropped but I don’t know who to drop if I try to claim him off waivers. J-Rich also available as FA.
    My current roster is doing pretty okay even though I’m still waiting for Tyreke to get up to speed and Noel to get traded.
    My team: Harden, Bledsoe, G. Harris, Tyreke, Fournier, Carroll, Covington, Noel, Gobert, RoLo.
    Not sure who to drop for Lin or J-Rich, who would be the best ROS? Feel like I need the dimes, but my guards are all solid. Drop Carroll or RoLo? or swap him for Tyreke? Thanks!

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Larry: I’d lose Reke. He hasnt been up to speed in 2+ seasons. Just isn’t worth it because he’s going to be hurt if he plays 30+ mins per and he’s not valuable only playing 20 mins per. I’d move Carroll for Lin because he’s pretty bleh with Lowry and Derose beasting

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Larry: @Bye Felica: Happy Holidays man! Yeah Reke can go, I don’t trust the health or enough minutes to make it work. I would pass on Lin though. I’d lose Reke for J-Rich

        • Larry says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: Thanks for the replies! Replaced Reke for JRich, thinking of claiming Lin and dropping Carroll. Feel like Lin would be more consistent in terms of production and minutes (once he’s back), and I think my team needs more dimes, seems like they both produce roughly the same (3s and STLs), with Carroll providing more boards and Lin with dimes. Will dropping Carroll for Lin be a good idea? btw, 9-cat H2H 16 teams, 10 players per team, punting TO

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Larry: Any time! I’m just worried about Lin becoming dead weight for longer than we think yet again. But the upside for a 16er with a punt TO build…. It’s tempting… I think I would just leave Lin out there and be someone elses problem

  10. Dante Green says:

    Bud, I don’t know if this was the right move but I went for Lawson, instead of Brogdon. Now I’ve used up my only move and the waiver wire will run one last time on saturday, I hope at least one from either Malcolm or Nogueira stays on the wire so I could make a switch for next week if something funny happens to Lawson. Hah The Sac organization really has no direction and I don’t wanna believe that Lawson has any long term value but he’s been getting the mins and playing well these past week so I’m going to try and ride him while he’s this good.

    Still feeling great about the move I made back in November where I sent Clarkson and Sergio in a package for Joke. Hah. Him and Towns really gave me a lift in assist category so far this week, and I’m leading by 28 right now. Hah I know Towns’ was fluky but can Joke really consistently provide a high production in assists? If that’s the case man, my troubles with assists should be over and done with! Hah

    JB STOP BEING HARKLESS, OK? Haha!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Ehhhhh, I would prob Brogdon, but they’re razor close. Yeah SAC is a mess as always, although went on a little win streak there. Hell yeah that joke move is awesome! Damn yeah big dimes from the pair to start the week haha. I dunno if he stays “this” high, but maybe 4.5ish to end the yr?

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Oh my 4.5ish from a big is juicy. Hahah

        Hah. Yea, but Brog is still on the wire so there’s still chance I could snag him! Thanks bud

          JB Gilpin says:

    In a 10 teamer punting pts and FT

    Availabe FA: Mirotic, thabo, henson, harrell, mkg, winslow, roberson, Len, aminu, smart, okafor, tucker, mkg, jrich, biyombo, t.allen, curry, powell, bogut, redick, ellis, parsons, bazemore, knight, patterson, mills, noah, mudiay, tucker, delly, frye, sergio, lawson, mcconnell

    Could drop RoLo and Nog for any of them

    Lineup:
    G-Dragic,Bev,Lin,Holiday,Ariza
    F-Lebron,Covington,TBooker,Warren
    C-Whiteside,Deandre,RoLo,Noguiera
    IL-Oladipo

    What do you think? I held off on picking winslow and streamed Nog for b2b. Will drop him now for winslow, Do you still think i can stomach his bad Fg? Or will MKG be a better fit?

    Also drop RoLo for Biyombo? Feel like he is a better fit with my punts.
    Also could drop RoLo for

      @Tyler: jamychal id also available. Should i also drop covington since he is killing my fg and whiteside is not very consistent anymore to anchor my Fg.

        @Tyler: looking at noah and biyombo in exchange of rolo and henson. They seem to be perfect for punt pts and Ft

          @Tyler: i mean rolo and noguiera 🙂

              @Tyler: Ehhh, starting with the Rolo deal, it seems such a lateral move. I would prob hold off given Noah injury questions he always carries. Pass on Reke.

              Lot of names there haha, In a 10er, that’s what makes it tough. I don’t like Winslow’s drain on FG% and TO for your build. I like J-Rich a ton, but yeah doesn’t fit either. Def would get Redick. Hits 3s, doesn’t hurt FG too much and you need 3s if you’re punting 2 already. I’d prob just lose Nog for Redick and hold Rolo

              • Tyler says:
                (link)

                @JB Gilpin: wouldnt Mills be a better fit for my punts? Redick only gives 1.8reb and 1.8ast?
                Also thabo is ranked 35th with my punts.

                And tried filtering past month Biyombo has been top 50 while Rolo is top 120.
                Biyombo has the leg up on boards, TO and FG while they offer the same amt of stls and blks.

                  @Tyler: or perhaps jrich over redick?

                    @Tyler: or danny green? Perfect for punt pts right?

                      @Tyler: Just don’t trust the Spurs for consistency, I would do Redick, you still need 3s at a good %. Noah is awful tho, if you could get Biz for just Henson or just Rolo, then sure

    Is Justise Winslow a hold in a 12er? The FG% was an issue already, and now he’s playing through a bad wrist on his shooting hand. 0-9 from the field tonight, WOOF!

      @Clyde Prompto: Buzz’s girlfriend, woof! Ummmm, I am holding in one RCL, but def not a “must hold” If good options are around of you’re in a close cat and need to stream I would lose him

    • Slim

      @Clyde Prompto: I’m done. I dropped him in a 12er.

          @JB Gilpin: Eh, 11/9/6 with a block. At least it was only 1 TO but no 3s from a wing and 2 poor percents again. Yeah that’s not worth the handful of boards and assists. I think he might be outside the top 300 for the past week. My brother hasn’t dropped him in the Y! $250 yet and I have no idea why. He’s hurting way more than he’s helping.

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Slim: He fits that build I have him on, I think it’s a Ft punt. I mean, he’s barely on the roster, if I needed to stream I would cut him.

    I’m not really enjoying being a Warren owner these days. I had to sit him yesterday because I couldn’t fit him in my lineups, and he goes off against SAS. Then today I’m salivating at the chops in a nice matchup against TOR and dude shts the bed. The 2 stls are nice, but his shot was gross and missed both FTs.. he’s been a major liability there in the games I’ve played him (kinda hilarious he made all those FTs the ONE time I sit him).

    So, JRich just went off and if I cut Warren, I really should do it for someone with some ROS appeal. What ya think? Or thoughts on Hood, as someone just dropped him? Or if efficient volume scoring is what I’m looking for in Warren (which I’m currently not getting it from him consistently), do I just swap him for Montrezl?

    The one saving grace with Warren is that Watson seems to love him out there for his D, so the mins should always be there. JRich looks the better all round guy, but I’d only make the swap if y’all think an efficient 17ppg with supporting stats role is in the books ROS. Harrell would obviously be an add for just the next few weeks but he’s been very solid scoring and blocking. Don’t rate Hood as much as others but perhaps HIll being back makes him a better player.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Lasandro: Yeah weird FT stuff. 3-6, 0-1, 10-10!!!!!, then 0-2… I think you hold Warren over that group. You said it, the efficient scoring. 2 bad shooting games the last 3 though… I dunno, he’s young and should be getting a big role. I like Hood decently, but yeah he and Warren are kinda close. I’d still hold though

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @slim: thoughts? Already read that you like JRich over Hood. If JB says that Hood and Warren are close, does that mean JRich is indeed a better open than TJ?

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @JB Gilpin @Slim: Haha never mind – I HAD to pick up JRich after today! Warren was the lesser of my duo of TJs, so he’s gone. As JB has said, in 10ers, gotta move on the hot hand. But I’m thinkin JRich is gonna be a nice ROS guy. Just needs to remain confident out there.

      • Slim

        Slim says:
        (link)

        @Lasandro: Yeah Richardson is killing it right now. He can’t be available anywhere. Top 10 or so the past week… Vs Warren is tough since they are so drastically different. Richardson just can’t be ignored right now, Warren V Hood, Yeah I’ll go with Warren’s FG% over Hoods 3s but that could very well be need dependent. But as we saw earlier in the year Warren has the edge in across the stat sheet upside.

    Giving up Hassan, Bledsoe, Harkless and DAngelo, getting back KD and Dragic. The injury history scares me with Hassan and Bledsoe. Getting the best player back in the deal is always so damn tempting. Also with it being a 14 team league, theres still decent stuff in the wire. I accepted, what do you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @ThE sHiT: Yeah with good waiver fill ins to make up the lost pieces, I’m good with this deal. Def consolidating into the superstar!

    Trade Lowry + Dragic/LouWill for Westbrook?

    Who do I drop to activate GHill?

      @Tyler: also danny green, tony allen, noguiera, noah, zbo are available but im punting pts.

      Thinking of swapping baze and sergio to activate hill and pickup danny green or tony allen?

      • Slim

        Slim says:
        (link)

        @Tyler: You have nice out of position assists but I think I’d hold Sergio. Thabo is probably my 1st out.

        Len v Noel? I’ll go with Len… for now…

          @Tyler: @Slim: I still think Reke would be my first. Meh yeah I could see Green over Carroll in that build, but I still don’t like Green at all hah

    Hey JB,

    Jokic or Ariza ROS in 9-cat? Ariza’s a top 30 player right now in 9 cat so I was wondering whether to cash in on jokic’s hot streak or keep him in hopes that he can keep it up. Also, is Ariza’s shooting over the last few games just a mini slump (hence a buy low opportunity) or is it influenced by capela’s injury?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Stat Studded: Hey man! I think I’ll lean Jokic, we’ve seen the past few years when Ariza has a cold month he’s soooo tough owning. Ariza hasn’t been that bad lately!

    Hey JB,

    Should I pull the trigger on KAT and Kemba for KD in 9-cat H2H? Also, have another offer on the table of KAT and Kemba for Horford and Lowry. Is either of them worth the deal?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Stat Studded: Kemba is starting to regress closer to his mean so I’m not totally against losing him for the right price. Durant is certainly better than KAT but by how much? This is really tough. I’m not sure… The other trade, sure Lowry is a little better than Kemba but KAT is significantly better than Horford. That’s a pass for me.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Stat Studded: @Slim: Agree on the Horford hard pass, not doing that one. And agree that first one is sooooo hard. What’s the league size? I’d say 10er do it, any deeper hold off
