What’s up Razzballers? Peter Kap here for your daily recap. I’ll be handling the Wednesday night recaps this season. I’ll try to be as funny and interesting as JB, but he’s got big shoes to fill. Seriously, dude wears a size 17 or something. JB’s shoes look like Shaq’s cell phone at the 2005 All-Star Game.

It’s still in the early goings of the season, but what a difference an offseason makes. The Knicks are, um, I hate to say it, watchable. I’m not declaring them a playoff team yet, but they are at least playing better together. They’re are a few more Knicks deserving to be on your fantasy roster this year. Carmelo Anthony is finally healthy, Robin Lopez has played well, and Kristaps Porzingis and Jerian Grant have had nice starts to their rookie seasons.

Now the Knicks are still going to Knick (For example: Melo dribbling out a shot clock violation at the end of the first half last night; Derrick Williams missing wide open dunks, etc.), but they already have road wins against the Bucks and Wizards, and were up on the Cavs at the half, before losing by 10. Hey it’s a step in the right direction.

Carmelo Anthony He had a double-double last night, leading the Knicks with 17 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 threes. The field goal percentage will continue to get better. He won’t be shooting 30 something percent all season.

Kristaps Porzingis I’m not going to lie, Porzingis has been better than I what I was expecting so far this season. He shot the ball well (6-11 from the field) and scored the second most points for the Knicks (13). He’ll just continue to get better and better. Buy low if you can.

Mo Williams – What do Pharrell Williams and Mo Williams have in common? They haven’t aged. They look like the same person from years ago. That’s good news for fantasy owners because Williams lit the scoreboard up with 22 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists. He was only 2-7 from the 3-point line, but there will be more and more nights like this while J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert are out.

Lebron James – It seems redundant to even mention James, but he contributed across the board (23 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals, 1 block) even in an ugly game.

Evan Fournier – The magical season (see what I did there?) continues for the Frenchman. Fournier filled up the stat sheet yet again (29 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 threes) and should be picked up in all leagues. He played 46 minutes in the overtime loss, but is still available in 48% of Yahoo! leagues as of Wednesday night.

Victor Oladipo –Night in, night out, Oladipo delivers across the board: 18 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.

Aaron Gordon – Gordon exploded off the bench for 19 points and 8 rebounds. Nice rebound after only playing 4 minutes in the Magic’s previous game.

Marcus Thornton – What Fournier has done for the Magic, Thornton has been doing for the Rockets. I don’t think he’s quite as good, but it’s clear that he’s going to play for the Rockets and be a solid contributor in points, steals, and threes. He finished with 18 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 threes.

Dwight Howard – Nice shooting and double-double (23/14, 10-10 from the field) for Howard, but where were the blocks? He had 0, but that should be a rare occurrence.

Trevor Ariza – Or should I say Trevor A-Three-za? Sorry I’m reminiscing of his Wizards’ days where I would yell that at the Verizon Center. 4-7 from downtown to go along with 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 steals. Not too shabby.

James Harden – 28 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists. Those numbers make it look like a great game, but he shot 6-22 from the field, including 2-11 from downtown, to go along with 7 turnovers. Thankfully he gets to the line so much (14-17), that he’ll still contribute on poor shooting nights.

Isaiah Thomas – What a pickup by Danny Ainge! He’s off to a blistering start and continued the strong play with 21 points, 7 assists, and 4 3PTFGM.

Avery Bradley – Bradley’s been dealing with a finger/hand injury, leading to a questionable status on Wednesday. He not only played, but played well: 21 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 threes. He won’t get the traditional assists like most point guards, but should be a good source of points, threes, and steals throughout the season.

Paul George – What broken leg? Paul George is back like he never got hurt. 26 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 threes. Just another day at the office for PG.

Lavoy Allen – With Ian Mahinmi out, Frank Vogel went with Lavoy Allen in the starting lineup. I don’t think he’ll get enough minutes to contribute regularly, but he cleaned up the glass with 11 rebounds.

Bradley Beal – If you haven’t watched Beal’s game winner, watch it now! It even comes with Steve Buckhantz’ patented, “Dagger” call! The scoring has been there so far this season, but Beal contributed in other areas, finishing with a 25/5/4/3 line with 3 3PTFGM, while shooting 11-22 from the field.

John Wall – There was a point early in the game where Wall had more assists (6) than the Spurs had points (4). He finished with 17 points, 13 dimes, and 4 steals. The shooting and turnovers will continue to be a problem, but the Wizards’ increased pace should have Wall competing for the league lead in assists.

Brook Lopez – I like calling him Broke Lopez, but there’s been nothing broke about his game so far this season. The Hawks couldn’t handle Lopez, as he led the Nets with 27 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 assists.

Thaddeus Young – Never the sexiest name, but a solid contributor nonetheless. 14 points and 10 rebounds for the winless Nets, but we don’t care about wins in fantasy.

Dennis Schroder – The Hawks will go with the hot hand on their team-oriented lineup. One night it might be Kent Bazemore, Shelvin Mack, or Dennis Schroder who goes off. Last night it happened to be Schroder (20 points, 4 assists, and 3 threes). I’m not investing too much, but he bounced back after two poorer games.

Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor – Boy do these big men play well together. They really only contributed in points and rebounds, but Noel (17/12) and Okafor (21/6) are making the 76ers front office look like they actually know a thing or two about drafting.

Greg Monroe – He’s looking like a great pickup for the Bucks, contributing another across the board line: 18 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals.

Giannis Antetokounmpo – The Greek Freak. I wish I had as cool of a nickname. Granted I’m not 6’11,” 20 years old, or playing in the NBA. Oh well. 17 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, and 1 three for the slender forward.

Jonas Valacinuas – My name is Jonas and I get double-doubles every night. 17 and 11 for the big man in the Raptors’ win over the Thunder. Don’t look now, but the Raptors are undefeated.

DeMar DeRozan – I’m not the biggest DeRozan fan since he doesn’t make a lot of threes, but you can’t complain about a 28/5/3/2 line.

Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant – It’s rare to see two teammates routinely put up top 10 numbers. 22 points and 16 assists for Westbrook and 27 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and 3 blocks for Durant. Let’s just hope they can stay healthy this season.

Enes Kanter – He hasn’t been getting a lot of minutes to start the season, but has been a near double-double every night. 15 points and 6 rebounds for the big man off the bench. He even hit a three!

Kosta Koufos and Marco Belinelli – The Kings’ game was a blowout, but Koufos (16/7) and Belinelli (15/2/3) have consistently seen about 20 minutes a game off the bench. For deeper leagues, they’re definitely guys to watch.

Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe – It’s always nice to see your starting point guards get 15 combined assists. Both guys played great together (19 points, 8 assists, and 6 rebounds for Bledsoe and 17 points and 7 assists for Knight) and should continue to do so.

Damian Lillard – Depending on the Trail Blazers’ final record, Lillard could be a darkhorse for MVP honor. His numbers continue to be superb: 35 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 threes, while shooting 14-26 from the field.

C.J. McCollum – The Suns and Wizards aren’t the only teams with a great backcourt. McCollum is off to a great start alongside Lillard, totaling 27 points, 4 assists, and 3 threes.

Mason Plumlee – Plumlee exploded for 12 points and 16 rebounds in 35 minutes on Wednesday. It’s his first double-digit rebound game of the season, but there should be more of those games coming soon.

    Do you like Ryan Anderson or Joe Johnson more ROS? I dropped Mo Williams for D’Angelo Russell and regret it, should I just roll with Williams until his value diminishes? Or does Russell have enough upside to hold? Thanks man!

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @Connor: I like Ryan Anderson a lot more than Joe Johnson. Anderson is younger and gains a lot of extra value as a big man who can knock down the three. Johnson is off to a slow start this season and although I expect him to improve, his best days are behind him.

      Williams will definitely be the better short term play and could even be the better play for the rest of the season. Shumpert and J.R. Smith are out so that gives Williams plenty of shots and playing time. It’ll be different when those guys are healthy. Russell is only 19 and it will take some time for him to blossom. The upside is definitely there, but there’s no guarantee that happens this year. Maybe you could trade Mo Williams early in the season while his value is the highest?

    What do you think of Hayward? is he still viable as razzball ranking or should find a value trade out of him?

    wiggins?

    james vs westbrook/paul/harden? please rank!

    9cat roto!

    cheers!!

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @TheJohn: I like Hayward. He should be fine. I don’t see any reason to panic trade him this early in the season. A month down the road, maybe. Same with Wiggins. It’s way too early to panic on guys you drafted in the top 50 or so.

      I’d go Harden, Westbrook, James, Paul for those guys, but they’re all pretty close that you could make a case for any order. Paul and Westbrook have more of a history of injuries, so I’d say Harden plays the most games.

    would you drop Stanley Johnson for Marcus Thornton in a 12 team 9 cat league?

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @Chris: I think that’s fair. Really depends on what your team needs more. You could make a case for either side.

      Johnson is still a rookie and will take some time to adjust. He’s coming off the bench currently so unless that changes, Thornton should be the better short term add. Just monitor Johnson because the potential is there and he could explode at any moment.

    do you like oladipo as a buy low on klay thompson?

    point guards could be thin though with cp3 payton deron smart left it oladipo goes

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @n-dawg: I think Klay is probably the better fantasy play just because of his 3 numbers, but will depend on what you need more. If you need more volume of 3’s and points, then Klay is worth it. If you need more all-around production, especially steals and assists, then Oladipo is worth holding onto. CP3 and Deron Williams aren’t the most healthy individuals so if one of them were to go down, you would be in serious trouble.

    1. deep 16m/11 cat league. picked up afflalo due to a bare FA pool. Thoughts?
    2. is jerian grant worth holding onto in a 14m/9cat or is his roster spot better for streaming (3 adds per week). interesting streamers – powell, jerami grant, ezili
    3. please choose best value for 16m/11cat – steven adams, lamb, capela
    4. thoughts on mcdermott?

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: 1. in a 16 team league, Afflalo has probably the highest upside of anyone on the waiver wire. He still doesn’t have a schedule for return, but the risk is definitely worth it until we know more.

      2. Grant is still coming off the bench to start the season and that’s with Afflalo out. Unless he takes over Calderon’s spot or moves to the starting lineup, I don’t think he’s necessarily a must own. Will depend on what stats your team needs and if you feel comfortable streaming.

      3. I’d probably go Capela, Lamb, Adams. The Rockets’ big men are prone to injuries so I could see Capela really taking on a bigger role. Even in reduced minutes the defensive stats are there. Lamb could carve out a nice role off the bench for the Hornets, if you need scoring and some volume stats. Adams is good for a few rebounds and blocks, but I don’t really see the upside or minutes that Capela could potentially get, unless Ibaka got hurt.

      4. McDermott is a good shooter, but will be inconsistent night to night and he won’t offer much outside of scoring and threes.

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @hamtime: Probably worth noting that Galloway is finishing out close games ahead of Grant too. Grant has some nice potential but he’s pretty buried on the depth chart.

  6. Nishinga says:

    Need some advices, I recently dropped Myles Turner for Kristaps Porzingis.
    But now I seem to have only 3 players that can play C, and it already make problems since tomorrow I’ll have 10 players available to play but can only play 9.
    So now I feel like dropping another player and pick a center of the waiver list.

    The players I consider dropping:
    Joe Johnson (just awful so far), Aaron Gordon (I like this kid but Fournier is on fire and his minutes are shacky as a result), Marcus Morris (Just picked him up recently of the waiver and dropped Alec Burks).

    The players I consider picking of the waiver list:
    Noah (he is awful, but if he can back to track…), R.Lopez (sucks at basketball), Sulinger (if he can keep up the starting job he should be good I guess, probably my favorite target).
    More notable centers on the waiver list: Jordan Hill, Meyers Leonard, David Lee, Amir Johnson, Jordan Hill, Cauley-Stein.

    btw, I’m in 10 Teams, 9 Cat, H2H league.
    Sorry if it was long, really need the advice.

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @Nishinga: Brad Stevens has been messing with the starting lineup. Amir Johnson started for the first time last night, then injured his ankle and was benched in the second half for David Lee and Jared Sullinger, even though Johnson was apparently available. Whoever starts there will probably be the best pickup, but it’s unclear who that will be yet.

      Although you need another center, I’m not sure any of the big men would be worth grabbing over what you currently have. Johnson will bounce back; Gordon’s been fairly good off the bench; and you gotta ride Morris while he’s hot. I would keep those 3 guys. Maybe upgrade at center through a trade or do a 2-for-1 deal so that you can pick up a center.

    TJ Mc Connell has the ability to make Philly a functioning nba team. I dropped Jerian Grant yesterday for McConnell. The Knicks wish they could too.

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @Dark Helmet: I don’t think the Knicks are ready to give up Grant after 5 games. Besides McConnell has been great, but what happens to him when Kendall Marshall and Tony Wroten are back?

  8. Ron Rondell Dell says:
    (link)

    Hey Kap.

    Thanks for the write-up. And thanks for keeping it real with your description of the knicks. They still knick (and that’s why I love them), but they actually play basketball this year and will be able to compete in most games.

    Anyway, I missed my RCL draft and have been playing catch-up ever since. My best and only PG is Jrue Holiday, but I have Lebron and good passing bigs (horford, Timmy) so I’ve been accumulating an average amount of assists. I’ve been rosterbating guards all pre-season, and might be able to put together a really competitive team.

    My question is, Jerian Grant or Schroder or Jabari? I dropped Schroder last night so Jabari could come of the IR list. I’ve watched both guards, and they are pretty much the same type of player. Who would you rather have?

    Thanks,
    Ron Rondell Dell

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @Ron Rondell Dell: Long term, Grant probably has the higher upside. Schroder is the safer short term pick and should contribute more consistently, but his ceiling isn’t as high as Grant. Schroder also benefited from Kyle Korver missing last night’s game.

  9. Connor says:
    (link)

    One more question! I’m looking to improve in boards and blocks. I have Willie Cauley-Stein and I know he has upside but Andrew always injured Bogut is staring at me on the waiver wire. Who would you prefer ROS? Thanks!

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Bogut has yet to clear the concussion test so it’s unclear when he’ll be back. You’re right, he’s often injured, but when he does play, is a great shot blocker. Is Ezeli available in the short term? He’s played great for the injured Bogut and may carve out more minutes even when Bogut returns.

      Like any rookie, Stein is going to be a work in progress. There will be good nights, but also nights where he scores 0 points and grabs 4 rebounds, like last night. The minutes should be there for a rebuilding team and the upside is great, but it may take a while for that upside to be reached. I’d wait until we get a better timetable on Bogut. I tend not to invest in rookies, rather selecting safer role players, but that’s just me.

    You think Fournier is for real? Would you go so far as to trade for him? Maybe in exchange for a guy like Marcus Morris or Jordan Clarkson?

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @Nathan: Fournier started last season well (15.4/2.6/2.3 averages in November), before battling injuries in the later part of the year. Of the three, I like him the most, but I’d be careful how much I would give up for him. I don’t think he keeps up his current pace (20.6/5/2.8) and should settle in closer to 15/3/3. Clarkson or Morris is fine to trade for him.

    My team: Wall, Teague, Jack, Middleton, Batum, T.Jones, Durant, Bosh, Gobert, Vala, T.Chandler

    How much rope do I give T.Jones? And is it worth still hanging on to J.Jack? (basically, should I drop either or both of those?)

    The following are on waivers: McConnell, Mo. Williams, Clarkson, Galloway, KCP, Thornton, Aminu, Porzingis

    Thanks!

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @Joe: I’d pick up Mo Williams or Jordan Clarkson. They should be rostered in all leagues. Thornton and Porzingis are right on the bubble, but all others are fine as streamers.

      But as good as Williams and Clarkson have been, I would hold onto Jack. He’s been able to play through his hamstring injury (12/6/4 so far). Jones might be the only player you could drop, but he may be coming back from his eye injury this weekend. Maybe do a 2-for-1 trade and pick up Williams?

      • Jeremy says:
        (link)

        @Peter Kap:

        Porzingis should be picked up right away, He’s avging 2 steals and 1 block under 30 mpg. Imagine he gets to 30 mins later in the season. You gotta add him now. And clarkson should be picked up too for season long value.

    9 cat H2H Considering dropping KOQuinn for Bjelica. How do you see their value in 9 cat playing out as season moves along? I love that Bjelica is getting nearly 10 more minutes per than KOQ, but KOQ has been effective w/ those 19 minutes. My concern is losing the blocks that KOQ provides. Thoughts?

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @Ken: Well it really depends on how much you value the blocks. If that’s the only category that you need help in, then O’Quinn should be kept. If you want more all around value numbers, than Bjelica would be better. Both need to more minutes to get more value, but I agree that Bjelica getting more minutes is tempting, especially with an aging KG.

    hey good stuff

    10 cat (9 + OREB) league, before Tuesday’s games I made a counter offer of my Lillard and Drummond for his Harden and Millsap. It was declined, but now after Drummond’s beastly performance(s), including 11 offensive rebounds the other night, the guy would make that trade. It seems like a smart trade but now I’m thinking it’s a real possibility Drummo will outperform Millsap in this league.

    It’s a deep 12 team league (17 player roster size), and with 12 starting lineup spots, the league favors those with deep back ends of lineups. I’m off to a slower start because so many of my guys (Aaron Gordon, Stanley Johnson, Myles Turner, Gorgui Dieng, Dennis Schroder etc) simply aren’t getting as many minutes as my matchup’s back end of lineup. So I’ve considered trading a stud for depth pieces. Any thoughts? Thanks

    • Peter Kap

      Peter Kap says:
      (link)

      @dom: I’d probably prefer to have the Harden/Millsap side just because they are the better all-around players. Drummond dominates in 2-3 categories (blocks, rebounds, and sometimes points), but does little elsewhere and really hurts you in FT%. The right roster management can balance out his weaknesses, but Harden and Millsap are top 20 guys due to their all-around play.

      Peter Kap says:

      @Chinzy: The Thaddeus Young trade was wise because you are fairly weak at the SF position. I find it’s always a hard position to fill, unless you have one of the studs.

      I would have probably kept Wall/Okafor, just because I think Faried is overrated in fantasy. Okafor brings risk as a rookie, but Faried really only rebounds and scores and doesn’t do either at an elite rate to make him that valuable. Besides, you said you’re weak at assists and Wall is going to be a top 5 guy this season.

      You do have a lot of point guard depth so packaging Rubio and Fournier/Aminu for a better SF/PF, maybe Batum or Millsap and someone. Outside of your PGs, most of those guys don’t get a lot of assists so Batum and Millsap could help in that area out of position.

      @Free Max B: On paper, I’d probably prefer the Gobert and Klay side. However, since you already have Ibaka, I’m not sure that I would want to invest in another elite shot blocker. Whether you win blocks by a few each week or a lot doesn’t matter. Between Ibaka and Gasol you should have enough blocks, while Green, Gay, and Amir Johnson contribute enough to help. I would focus the trade on an area that you would need more of. Maybe another guard who helps in assists?

    • Peter Kap

      @Jason Wang: I think Turner or Johnson is the most droppable. Dieng is getting more minutes and has been a useful fantasy player in the past. It’s always tough to rely on young guys. So dropping Turner for Sullinger makes sense for me. Other big free agent guys (who may have already been picked up): Marcus Thornton, Evan Fournier, Nemanja Bjelica, and T.J. McConnell.

    Hey… what do you think about this trade?
    Giving: favors, gay, Thomas, and dieng
    Getting: cousins, (Teague if possible or tobias-is this trade good even if I get tobias) and Ellis
    Would this put me down a lot in rebounds? I’m thinking of grabbing someone off the waiver like porzingis or bjelica. Thanks!

      @RW0: I’d probably take the Cousins side, just because he’s the best player in the deal, but it really depends on if you have the depth. I think you can make up the rebounds, but blocks might be harder to come by since Dieng and Favors block so many shots.
