So I know what you’re thinking – where is Matty this morning?!  He’s been awesome!  Well, I’m here today to fill in while Matty takes a Canadian spa day.  What happens is you go to this facility and everything is made of poutines.  All you can eat is poutines, all the liquid you intake is gravy, the spa pillows are made of cheese curd…  Wait, why am I making fun of this, that sounds like the best day of my life!  Matty – true Canadian hero.

But back here in The Colonies, Klay Thompson has become MY true AMERICAN hero!  Going 13-21 from the field including 10-16 from deep, Thompson had a monster breakout going 39/7/6/0/1 against the Pacers, leading the Warriors to 23-0.  And speaking of “and-0s”, look at JB taking the 1-0 lead on the 30-point challenge board!  Looking like another season where I’m going to trounce Slim in the 30-pt challenge.  It’s not official yet, but I’ve heard mumblings that the IQ test will soon be phased out for the 30-pt challenge as the most accurate test for intelligence…  Anyway, it’s funny how perception and time can change a player’s analysis.  I went from slamming Thompson for being a ThrAGNOF, to finally buying in, and then defending his cold start suggesting making buy low offers.  All the sudden after last night, all he’s missing is 3.5 Pts and half a steal from having nearly identical stats from 14-15.  Of course as all of this unfolded last night, it ended with a monster cliffhanger after Klay got a kankle and looked like he was in some serious pain on the bench.  X-rays were negative, and luckily Klay says it’s not too bad and should be back in a few days.  Whew!  Let’s hope this doesn’t slow down his reacharound!  I mean turnaround!  Here’s what else happened last night in fantasy basketball action:

Al-Farouq Aminu Al Puke Aminu!  If you haven’t figured out Razzball Hoops is a high-brow fantasy site by now, then you haven’t been reading enough!  4/5/0/0/1 in 31 minutes (?!), and he’s been in the single-digits of scoring without any interesting stats in 6 of the past 8.  Feeling pretty good staying off that bangwagon!

C.J. McCollum Speaking of bandwagons, dammit McCollum!  Yeah, I probably should’ve ranked him a few rounds higher, and of course I joked I would shave when he shoots over 50% and now my face is cold…  10-19 FG (4-8 3PTM) 24/3/5/2/0 with a bearable 4 TO.  Ugh, look at the mix of CLE guards though!  If there’s any cold water I can find for McCollum, you better believe I’ll use it!

Damian Lillard Awesome.  Say Amen to The Omen.

Ed Davis Well, that ended abruptly… 6/4/2/1/0, and after at least 10 Pts or 10 Reb in the past 5 with nice D stats, we got another game where the role showed why he’s untrustworthy.  Unprepared.  Unloyal.  I’m just putting “un” in front of Boy Scout words…

 LeBron James Picked up that DNP in the high-profile game against his former Heat, but showed he’s just fine for a 33/10/3/2/3 rainbow.  Hit a trey and a 4 of his FT.  Gotta love that Puke Aminu defense!

Matthew Dellavedova 37 minutes as a starter, going 17/3/3 with Mo Williams coming off the bench with his sore knee.  Mo didn’t do much and there was even 35 minutes of nothingball played by Jared Cunningham.  Shocking that McCollum could hit some shots!

Stephen Curry Doesn’t even have to try very hard to flirt with 40 Pts or triple doubles virtually every night…  29/7/10 last night, taking a “backseat” with only 11 3PTA to KT’s 16.

Andrew Bogut – 14/10/1/1/2 in 23 minutes, which deserves three golden “OIs!” for being only his second dubdub on the year, and first since Nov 14.  Oh yeah, that was when I played him in REL and barely lost rebounds…

Andre Iguodala 6/3/5/5/1/ and 9 steals the past two games.  Still pretty blah overall, even with Harrison Barnes rehabbing his kankle…

Paul George Well, he tried to get the Pacers to make it a game, but that run the Warriors went on to close the first quarter just proved to be too much (I think they scored like 22 in a row?!).  33/8/6/3/1 and playing every bit like a first-rounder.

Monta Ellis – Yeah, it’s not been very good…  9/2/5/1/1 and a horrific 6 TO in 38 minutes.  I might have some REL-bias as a Monta owner, but I gotta think there’s still some gelling going on, plus he’s been banged up.  Also his worst FT% since his rookie year just seems fluky.  He’s not taking too many treys and his FG% is at a career-worst as well.  I think this starts coming together a little better and the STL have been there until this last 5-game stretch, when he’s been a little hurt.  Find your groove, Monta!  I want to write a headline that says “How Monta Got His Groove Back”!

Rodney Stuckey – Had a nice run with the low(er) run/injury time Monta missed, but came to a screeching halt last night.  I do appreciate his shorts are at about his knees while Monta looks like he’s wearing MC Hammer pants.  “Those are Mahinmi’s shorts, Monta!”

C.J. Miles 24 Pts and 5 treys, but the ancillary stats have really dried up.  Only 1 steal and 6 dimes the past 6 games.  Back to the ThrAGNOF we know and love!

Marcus Thornton – I found it shocking no one took The Bayou Bomber for 30 pts last night!  Who DIDN’T see that coming?!  32/6/3/3/0 on 12-18 shooting for a shocking game.  Making the most of added run with…

Trevor Ariza …leaving with a “lower back bruise” after a hard fall, and I’m guessing the area was sore because he just got a tramp stamp.  He should be fine once the bandage comes off and we can all see that butterfly fly!

Terrence Jones – JB Bickerstaff is giving JB’s around the world a bad name.  I’ll give him my bicker-staff, ya wankah!  16 minutes of 5/3/2/1/0 for Tjones, while only James Harden and Corey Brewer played big minutes.  Uggggghhhhhh.  Ya know what, the Rockets DESERVED to lose to the hapless Nets last night.

The Beard – Was weird.  10/3/9/3/0, taking only 9 shots?!  And also chipped in a nice 7 TO.  Brewer took 16 shots off the bench!  Weird game…

Patrick Beverley 5 steals.  You’ve been Beverley’d!

Joe Johnson – It hasn’t been pretty, but I held where I could.  Game-hich 43 minutes last night for 22/5/8/3/0 and after a lull, the out-of-position dimes are coming back.  Of course we need to see scoring like this more often, but a nice start.

Thaddeus Young 20/12/5/3/0 and he’s having an under-the-radar ridiculous year.  He’s only been over 6.0 REB once (7.5 in 12-13 in Philly) in his career, and he’s at 9.0 so far this season.  Hasn’t been over 50% from the field since 12-13 either (given he’s cut out the 3PTA), and he’s at 53.1%.  Providing some crazy value right now, and he’s an unconventional big man to maybe trade for if you need conventional big man stats (well, minus BLK).

Brook Lopez There’s your blocks!  5 swats last night and at a career-best 2.3 thus far.  With all these nice stats, you’d imagine the Nets would be better!

Bojan Bogdanovic 19 Pts, and with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson reportedly going to miss 10 weeks, BoBo is in that ThrAGNOF mix.

Shane Larkin – Eesh, looks like he got…  Lawson’d?!  Let’s hope not!  4 TO and a rough game, but in deepers he’s a strong hold.

Kevin Durant What a boring game…  For OKC that is, nice 32/10/6/3/0 for the Slim Reaper, with a crazy efficient 11-14 FG (4-5 3PTM 6-6 FT).

Russell Westbrook 16 dimes in 25 minutes.  A march of dimes.

Mike Conley Remember the Conley debates this summer?!  Well, just to recap, Slim and commenters were like “Rabble rabble rabble!  Contract year!  He’s still good!”  And I was like, “Rabble rabble rabble, he’s terrible now!”  0/0/6/1/0 shooting 0-7 last night.  The AST are up a handful with a few less TO from last year, but everything else is way down – %s, STL, complaints about my low Conley rank…  All down.

Marc Gasol Speaking of down, left with a kankle.  It doesn’t sound like it was too serious and this was an epic blowout, so hopefully it was precautionary.

Mario Chalmers – Cliff notes on the Grizzlies – they were all awful except a little spark from Chalmy Chalm.  19/2/1/2/1 on 6-8 FG and 7-8 FT, but I imagine a good bit of that was in junky junk time.

Will Barton I saw a 30-pt challenge pick for him, and when I saw the Nuggest barely scored 30 AS A TEAM, I was bracing myself for a bad Willy B game.  But alas!  23/4/1/4/1, taking a crazy 23 shots making 9 of em and scoring 31% of Denver’s points.  He’s the best G on that team, so the shots are just gonna keep comin’ like a Jon Hamm Emmy party.

Kenneth Faried Lordy, what are you doing shooting 2-12 from the field?!  Your shot chart should look like a bunch of dots around the rim like a hemorrhoid exam!  Ew.  7/11/3/1/2 was at least some multi-cat, but let’s get The Manimal some Preparation H!

Andrew Nicholson – Team-high 14 REB in only 21 bench minutes.  Aaron Gordon sat with a kankle/slept with Skiles wife, but it didn’t change much for St. Nich’s role.  8/14 and no other stats but 3 TO.  Bleh.

Nikola Vucevic D stats keep on flowin’!  Rainbowed for 18/13/3/2/2 shooting 9-14 from the floor.  At least Skiles has done SOMETHING good for fantasy, emphasizing the D play.

Evan FournierNoooooo, he’s reverting back to having his V-card!  The Virgin for 3/2/1/0/0 in 26 really uninspiring minutes.  Maybe we need to re-name him “Mr. November”.

The Bookworm – Dubdub machine!  Trevor Booker for 12/10/1/1/0 in 27 minutes off the bench, as the Jazz stubbornly start their worst players at PG and PF with Trey Lyles doing nothing in 18 minutes.

Omri Casspi Mazel Tov!  19/10/4/1/0 with 3 treys in a whopping 41 minutes.  It’s not quite to must-own territory, but I’m loving my new term – “must-consider” territory.  I’m nothing if not a confident call-maker!

Rajon Rondo 17/7/13, and you have to ask, how the hell are you letting Rondo score 17 on you, Utah?!  6-7 FT last night ALMOST got Rondo up to 50% FT shooting on the year!  Sigh.

 

Thanks for dropping by everyone, and I’ll be back with the Daily Notes on Friday.  Catch ya then, Razzball Nation!

    Yoo JB, why the hell is TJones not getting minutes right? Good call on Bookworm the other night.

    Got a quick q, someone in my league has dropped Harrison Barnes (out injured), should I drop Marcus Smart (also out injured) and grab Barnes from waivers? Not sure Smart’s gonna get a lot of minutes when he’s back considered how well Bradley’s playing at the moment. Peace!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jonny Bloodnuts: Yeah, I have no clue, coaching change seems to hate him… Thanks on Bookworm!

      I think I’d stick with Smart, pretty close, but Smart’s guard D should be enough to get him right back in the rotation after eased in

  2. J says:
    (link)

    Hey JB,

    How would you rate the following guys right now? and ROS?

    Bookworm, Zeller, MLeonard, Nicholson, Capela, Koufos, Teletovic

    I realize they provide different stats, but another opinion would be nice.

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @J: Right now, Zeller, Bookworm, Capela, Leo, Kouf, Telet Nicholson. ROS, hmmmm that’s though, I don’t think any have enough upside or long-term prognosis to feel strongly on any, I would probably take Zeller there. Any time!

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @JB Gilpin: Yeah I just watched that CHA v MIA blowout win and boy did Cody look GOOD. Dude is mad athletic for someone so big and runs the floor hard. I seriously can’t imagine slotting Big Al back into this lineup – he just can’t get up and down the floor nearly as fast as Cody and it allows Kemba and Batum to really push the pace. Wish Cody grabbed more brds today but he had to box out Whiteside all night, so I’ll give him a pass. Still love Bookworm more in reality, but Zeller seems to be on the upswing, as Big Al keeps smoking those Big Spliffs on the sidelines (question: does the 5 game suspension start AFTER he returns from his injury?)

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Lasandro: Wow, yeah I thought he looked good too but it didn’t do much on the stat sheet, given low run due to blowout. Nice call!

        Yeah from what I understand, it has to be after his injury is healed, I have no idea how they quantify that though…

  3. Clyde Prompto says:
    (link)

    I dropped Casspi yesterday because George Karl was heavily implying that he was headed to the bench, so of course he starts and has a nice game. SKIIIIIIILES!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Clyde Prompto: Dammit SKIIIIIIIILES, it’s all his fault!

  4. dom says:
    (link)

    Packed slate tonight, you’ll probably have a lot of lineup questions. Such as: T Harris (@PHO), Crowder (CHI), or Wiggins (LAL)? I’m pleased with how well rounded Harris has been this year, last night he shot 7-13 and 3-3 FT 17pts 9 boards 2 steals 2 blocks. Multi-cat kitty litter!

    Do you like any of these guys in particular for streaming tomorrow in a 10 team 9 cat: Bazemore, Sefolosha (OKC) Jerami Grant (@BKY) Jamal Crawford (@CHI)? The back end of my roster is Meyers Leonard, Gorgui Dieng, and Terrence Jones; is Jones still a hold? Thanks a lot JB!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dom: Yeah very busy Wednesday. I’m going for Wiggins still I think, nice matchup.

      Crawford I would like if Redick was still hurt, but not loving that. Bazemore would be my pick, I would likely hold Jones but I am not a Meyes L guy, I think he could go

  5. neogonzo mourning says:
    (link)

    ugh terrence jones you bucket of crud… get traded to phoenix already

  6. Hamtime says:
    (link)

    1. Ugh panicked and dropped Larkin for bogdanovic. Should I drop bog for smart instead? Worried about the strong Bradley it2 chemistry.

    2. Is murk worth a stash with all the center mess in Denver?

    3. Noguiera, bjelica, mcbob, jokic, hawes, nance in a 16er? (Super gross, I know, but pls rank)

    4. My wade for Danny green? No way right

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hamtime: 1. I still think it’s Larkin between those two for me, but no issue nabbing Smart. 2. Only the deepers still, and verrrrry deep. 3. Haha, I kinda wanna go upside right now – Noguiera, Nance, Bjelica, McBob, Jok, Hawes. 4. Yeah prob holding

  7. Hamtime says:
    (link)

    5. Sorry, forgot to add – would you burn a waiver on Tyson chandler? He was just dropped in a 14m. I’d drop bogdanovic. Or should I go for crabbe if I’m not stashing smart/nurk

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hamtime: 5. Yeah I’d nab Tyson, I still think it could end up being OK

  8. miles proudfoot says:
    (link)

    What do you think of Tyson chandler or markieff ROS? I’m leaning Markieff bc he’s got to be traded. I’ll have to drop A Gordon for the third time but things just aren’t panning out for him. Still think it was a good call by you. Saw him play a few weeks back against the Knicks. While many will play well vs them,he was all over the place playing two ways. Looked great, still definitely going to monitor him.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: Yeah and Kieff has so much more upside, he’s likely my pick too. Yeah he looks the part, just isn’t getting the chance, it’s frustrating… I guess Channing Frye and Andew Nicholson are better hahaha

  9. Hamtime says:
    (link)

    can you pls rank for a 14m. Looking for season long value. Currently all in the da pool: crabbe Tyson Larkin smart agordon

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hamtime: Mannn, I’ll go Smart, Gordon, Tyson, Larkin Crabbe but tough

  10. v00dr00 says:
    (link)

    King Joffrey is the new Mad King. I’m about to backstab him and pick up someone I don’t care about. Which of these would you pick up in his place? Zeller, Mayo(meh), Calderon, Booker, Larkin, Len, Felton(ew), Mahinmi, Bogut(oi).

    • v00dr00 says:
      (link)

      @v00dr00: Orrrr do I part ways with Iguo(I’m thinking no due to Klay’s clay ankle(Aiken joke?)

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @v00dr00: Hahaha two Mad Kings in a short time there in Kings Landing… Hah, I think I’m going Zeller right now, holding Iggy, and there seem to be a lot of good options should Zeller’s minutes crash back down when big Al is back

  11. rhirano says:
    (link)

    Im looking to pick up guard stats (3’s, Ast, and Stls) and some extra points and just dropped Fournier for Beverley. I still have Ish Smith on roster hoping he’d get pt again, but should i drop for someone else?
    My team as currently constructed:
    Rubio/Beverley/Ish Smith
    Oladipo/Clarkson
    Korver/Parsons
    Ibaka/Morris/Sullinger/Terrence Jones
    Cousins/Bosh

    Teletovic, Neal, Casspi, Calderon, Noah, Jennings, Hood, Canaan, Ginobili, and Joe Johnson are all available

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @rhirano: Yeah Ish needs to go, ain’t happening while everyone is healthy. Even with Rubio I think dimes could help, I’d get Joe Johnson

  12. dude says:
    (link)

    In a standard 9 cat league (12 man h2h), should I pick up D’Angelo Russell and drop one of the following:

    Alex Len, Terrence Jones, Meyers Leonard

    All 3 of them played well last week, though Jones and Leonard have slowed down in the last 2. I like Len for the short term while Chandler is out. However, I feel like Russell will get his minutes down the line despite Scott’s crazy rotations.

    Banking on a lot of upside here with these guys, so wondering how they rank out. Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dude: Agree, Russell should see more and more burn as the season goes on. I just still am not a Meyers L guy, he’s def my drop right now

  13. jcg says:
    (link)

    Meyers Leonard has been pretty bad and the minutes aren’t there. Looking for best upside for later this season, would you drop him to take a flier on any of these?

    Kendall Marshall
    Bogdanovic
    Teletovic
    Sefolosha
    Devin Booker
    Beverley?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jcg: Definitely Beverley! Maybe not the ”later in season” upside, but plenty good to make the swap and feel good ROS

  14. TheJohn says:

    Is dipo for conving a good yrade i need 3 and assist..

    Who shud i target for assist is rondo too high to buy? What about rubio? Jarrett jack?? Any recommend??

    Am willin tk give up dipo walker gay or mayb some mid tier round trDe for those statsss

    Thankss

    • TheJohn says:
      (link)

      @TheJohn: also how d u rate ariza and g hill?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @TheJohn: I’d rather have Dipo, if you’re the Coving owner. Rubio I think is a solid buy, been frustrating at times and owners hate his injury. Dipo for Rubio seems kinda lateral, and I think Gay should get you more than Rubio, what abour Gay for Rubio+a 3pt shooter on that team?

        Ariza’s % will always be killer and Hill is steady but not much upside

  15. dle says:
    (link)

    Hey man need some input. Im in a 10 team 9 cat league and I am wondering if I should hold or drop for FAs like Beverly, Burks, Hood, Joe Johnson, Calderon. I am getting killed in treys right now.

    Reddick
    Favours
    M.Gasol
    Faried
    Zaza
    Kemba
    Gay
    Monta
    Jrue
    Sullinger
    Wall
    Kawhi

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dle: Well I have no issue losing Redick or Zaza in a 10er. Although Redick cut doesn’t help 3s… If streaming this week, I like nabbing either Hood or Johnson, PBev can hit some 3s but you have a really good STL team and don’t need that from him

    Should i trade lou will or mahinmi for danny green? He’s gotta have it figured out by fantasy playoffs right?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @turkeyglue turkuglu: Yeah i think it comes around, I’d likely trade Lou

  17. dan the man says:
    (link)

    Yo JB!

    roster currently looking like this….

    G: I. Thomas, R. Jackson, D Lillard, E. Fournier
    F: Ma. Morris, T. Harris, T. Jones, A. Gordon, Draymond, O. Casspi
    C: Kief, Mahinmi, Gobert, Pau, and J. Leuer

    holding onto a bunch of guys based on upside (Gordon, Jones, Kief) and missed out on zeller. would you drop any of them for waiver guys like Bazemore, Bookworm, Mayo, Len, Joe Johnson, Thornton, Mo Williams, Larkin?

    team’s been doing well, but holding those guys seems like it may backfire eventually… any thoughts? appreciate it man!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dan the man: Yeah all 3 is tough, but if you’re doing well, I don’t think all 3 need to go. I think Kieff is out first, with Gobert out I would get Bookworm, but feel joe Johnson should be owned in most leagues too still… But he doesn’t fit ya all that well, I’d only get Bookworm. Hope that helps!

  18. I'm Harden for your love says:
    (link)

    Is my Bledsoe for Favors good value?

    Im last in PTSand 3PTS so Bedsoe aint doing me any favors! I’m 3rd in AST so I can take the hit. The only down side is the FT% hit which I now is hard to find on the wire.

    What you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @I’m Harden for your love: Haha ummmm, I think if I had E Bled I’d want a little bit more of a sweetener

  19. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    And the NBA suspends Aljefff! Hah loving our CZeller pickup, I’ll be spending more games with the guy. I hope he delivers the goods… Hah RHJ’s out 8-10 weeks, I hope Bogda follows up his decent game with another good one. But let’s just say I went to my league’s FA list and still find Danny Green there, would you make the swap even before seeing their next games?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Yeah crazy! Needed some healing for that calf… Yeah I’d get Green over BoBo still

  21. Mex says:
    (link)

    What do you think of this trade? Wall and Monroe for Bosh and Butler? I’m not strong with assists even with Wall, but I’m solid in 5-6 other cats, and Bosh gives me more 3pm while covering for Monroe’s loss. My main concern is the loss of wall is a lot of steels, but I think I haven’t lost steels yet and think I can make it up streaming. It’s an 8 team h2h… thinking butler and bosh will be better compliment to AD, and if the brow misses games those two will cover for his stats better than wall and monroe.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mex: Hmmmm, it’s mad close. I still think I’d want a tad more, I know you’re going for roster comp, btu Wall>Butler for me isn’t worth Bosh>Monroe. They have a PG to chip in maybe?

  22. Marshall says:
    (link)

    Hey JB and Slim, ended up trading my cousins for lowry, really needed an assists and 3’s boost. And I wasn’t able to watch cousins anymore shooting crazy 3’s while on my team. Also, someone made me an offer of dray and ariza for favors, what do you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Marshall: Lowry’s been good, i think I mighta wanted a tad more back, but it’s close enough that I have no issue for it. Wait, you get Dray side?! Def taking that! Love Favors and this hurts your big man depth after Boogie trade, being sure that won’t kill you thought

    Hi JB,

    Awesome blog as always. How can I improve my team? 14Team H2H. Thanks.

    Burks, PBev, Kemba, Tyreke Evans
    Hayward, Marcus Morris, Kobe, Bazemore, Bogdanovic
    Anthony Davis, KAT, Pau Gasol, Ed Davis

      @29 J: Thanks man! Mudiay has been soooo tough, but he and Smart seem like good pickups. Seems like FG% is already a punt and you could use dimes, I’d add Mudiay for Bogdanovic

    What do you think of this trade?

    Burks for my Elfrid?

    Badly need the scoring stats. I’m on the median of PTS FGA FGM. The rest i got top 1 – 4. Currently on 5th place today. but 3rd-5th is pretty close.

      @EPH: Yo! Def taking Elfrid! Even with socring stats needed, it’s too much value to pass up. Then maybe address another trade

    Thoughts on Melo and Giannis for Wall? Immediate thought is no (Wall is mine) but also sneaky interesting…

      @Luc: Yeah if your AST and STL are off the chart, and you needed more depth in like a 14er I might. but most cases woudln’t

    Hey JB,

    Would you pick up MCW in a 10 man h2h for collison or danny green? I’m a little hesitant to kill my FG% and TO since im punting FT% already.

    My team:
    CP3, collison, hill, dragic
    danny green, matthews
    dray green, thad young, crowder
    kieff morris, griffin
    whiteside, drummond

    Thanks man!

      @jonny: Eesh, yeah MCW looks like he needs to get scooped up, can’t believe I’m saying this, but Green can go

    Is it consciousble to drop TJones at this point for Marvin Williams? Even thinking rest of season TJones outlook is foggy, right?

    Also if needs are points and rebounds, KWalker and TJones for Griffin?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @miles proudfoot: Considerable for sure. I’m narrowly holding tjones there. But would def do that Blake trade!

    My team is getting pummeled the past 2 weeks. TJones and Monta are just killing my production. Injuries to Harris and Carroll basically takes me out of the stls category. Wiggins’ lines have been empty too (wish I had traded him when the offer of Hayward came earlier in the season). Not even the combination of AD & KD was able to save my lineup.

    Gotta think TJones is droppable at this point with him relegated to bench minutes which he doesn’t even seem to maximize like today when Ariza is out. Getting him traded would be nice but trade deadline is so far out to wait out and have him produce this much.

    I thought he had a favorable match up vs the 4s of the Wizards but I was really disappointed. I’ve watched him a lot before and I have to think there is some truth to that report that he is being less aggressive partly due to avoiding injuries.

    Also disappointed in Wiggins. Have no clue why someone who is as explosive as he is can just settle around the perimeter, wait for the ball for a drive and pop. No aggression (I think KG needs to mentor him instead of KAT).

    Maybe package TJones and Wiggins for a solid 3rd rd player? Or keep Wiggins and drop TJones for maybe Bogdonovic (RHJ is out for a significant amt of time) or D’Angelo Russell (another upside potential but at least he is producing much better)?

      @kw:
      Jeez I actually have both guys. Tjones I’m close to dropping

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @kw: @Dante Green: Ugh yeah the Wiggins one is the most annoying to me/my teams… Jones is indeed droppable if you need to. A new coach I think is a big issue too, not necessarily run, but scheme.

        Depends obviously on who you would get for that Wiggins deal, my favorite course of action is nabbing Russell

        • JG

          kw says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: yeah, could be scheme. i dunno, Rockets are up against the Lakers on Saturday. I figure he should be able to do something against them right? 10/5 with a 3, a stl and a block with TOs capped at 2-3 and live another day isn’t that much to ask right? LOL

    Hi Jb, Would you pick up booker or T. chandler from the wire ?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @nont nontiskul: Hmmm right now Booker, but keeping an eye on Chandler

  33. sliimbo says:

    hey man

    who do you like best off the wire for steals blocks and ft%

    tony parker, len, koufos, olynyk, beverley or cody zeller

    thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @sliimbo: Right now I’m thinking Len is the guy, but Beverley is close.

    would you trade E bled for isiah thomas and P. bev ? or do you think isiah too high now ?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @nont nontiskul: Yeah that doesn’t seem like enough back, I’d hold E Bled

    Hey JB, can you pick 2 from these FAs:
    Its a 16team deep redraft 9cat h2h

    Warren
    Bjelica
    Olynyk
    Galloway
    Stauskas
    Mclemore
    Jerian Grant

    • Tyler says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: Was initially thinking of getting Olynyk and Bjelica but I’d like to hear your thoughts as well.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Tyler: In a vacuum I think it’s Oklynyk and Warren, I know Warren hasn’t done as much lately though…

  36. Mike says:
    (link)

    hey JB – a few Qs

    1) How much longer are you holding on to TJones? Is he already droppable in 12ers?

    2) What about Aaron Gordon? My team is pretty solid aside from those 2, so holding on is not killing me, really.

    3) What value could I get from Elfrid Peyton trading him for a shot-blocking Centre? Marcin Gortat zone? Who else?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mike: 1. Depends on if you have other stash types, if no then I’d hold, if yes then he can go. 2. Hah, I shoulda read on. Yeah one should go, prob Gordon. 3. Gortat seems about right, won’t get KAT, maybe Elfrid + something for Whiteside who has slowed down? Also Ibaka who has been colder…

    Jb! a little more insight please. I finally dropped freaking markieff, but my team is struggling a bit with my projected projections?

    I know i definitely need ast,my stls are meh, and blks are not dominating as much as i thought they would…and for some reason 3s are always close! Ive been trying to shore up all the low end PGs and I accidentally got frustrated with Larkin and dropped him for bazemore (AGAIN). lol thank you!

    12 tm, yahoo standard, punting FT

    PG: curry, kemba, rubio, calderon
    Wings: beal, wes matthews, clarkson, bazemore
    BIGS: Drummond, Deandre, Favors, MarvinWill, TJones

    FA: Mudiay, Larkin, Mahinmi, Hibbert, Sefolosha, Lawson, Kief, Capela, Grant, Motiejunas, Mayo, Jennings, Wroten, C Joseph, Kendall Marshall

    I am considering Mudiay (ugh) and I am also reconsidering stashing Markieff (no please!)/ re-adding Larkin. I should have given Larkin another shot as RHJ is injured (oops). Maybe my past matchups have been too close for comfort since I was rostering Markieff, Jones, Humphries and not to mention the injuries to freaking Rubio/Beal and Wes not exactly playing well yet?

    Thank you!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @runfast: Yeah Kieff is a drop to me too… Haha all good with that Bazemore swap for now. Yeah injuries early to stat killers can throw things off, like to Rubio. Matthews as we assumed starting slow. Calderon can def go for someone, probably Mayo right now.

    Which side would you choose?

        @JB Gilpin: @JB Gilpin:

        Thanks for the quick reply.

        Im in a 12 team
        8cat league and my players are

        Rubio
        Wade
        PGeorge
        Jimmy B
        Hayward
        KAT
        Vucevic
        Zinger
        Otto Porter
        Gay
        +2 streamers

        Il really think my team is super strong but for some reason ive been underperforming. Any tips on how i can improve my team? Trade ideas? Thanks in advance

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Theo: Looks like you’re holding on that deal. rubio missing time hurt since your AST are low without him, so that’ll help. You have some crazy scoring, I like shopping Gay for an all around guy. A few more dimes would help too… Gay for Gasol? That would fit well

    Someone just offered me Noel and George Hill for my Isaiah Thomas. I said NO NO.
    I’m thinking about offering my Monta Ellis+Rubio+Rudy Gay for his Chris Paul and Noel.
    Worth it? I’m giving too much?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nishinga: Wow, I know IT2/3 has been good, but I would strongly consider that trade. That said, I think I like the Paul one a tad more only if your scoring is really strong

      • Nishinga says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: My scoring is at most average in my league so far.
        If I trade Isaiah I will lose power in dimes, I will also lose good FT shooter and Noel will ruin me in the FT. I’m basically downgrading a PG for a big man who looks awful so far this season.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Nishinga: Yeah it’s def risky trying Noel, plus Philly is awful with benching for minor injuries. I don’t mind holding knowing that on your team, but I dunno if that trade for CP3 helps you too much either
