Some NBA GMs had a case of the Mondays, that’s for sure!  “Uhhhh, I’m not ready to be back at work, let’s do something nuts just to make it look like we’re working…”

In a blockbuster three-team trade, the New York Poppycockers salary dumped Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith to the Cavs.  More pressure on Blatt!  Now he has to win with Knicks Outkasts… “I like the way you move!”  The last NBA coach who said that to Smith was George Karl.  Shumpert is likely going to start at the 2 with Smith becoming a 6th man.  Both of them must have had a redonkulous party to be heading to a winner.  Don’t invite Plaxico or Felton!  Then there’s Dion Waiters to the Thunder.  Meh.  Not like most leagues were using Waiters anyway, but he takes a minor hit in deepers.  Reggie Jackson should still lead the second unit in shots, so I’m not that excited.  The Knicks picked up three guys – Captain Kirk (but not the Hinrich one), some European with a lot of hair, but then an interesting name in Lance Thomas.  I almost made a cracker joke, but we’re gonna gloss right over that and reminiscence in some games he had earlier in the year on a depleted Thunder front line – 12/8/2 (Nov 1), 14/5/1 (Nov 4), the fluky 7/13/6 (Nov 12).  And depleted is baked right into the Knicks funnel cake right now.  The Poppycockers might as well see what they have at some point, so in uber deep leagues if you need someone with any sort of upside, I’d be sure and star LT on your wire.  Here’s what else went down on a crazy Monday for fantasy basketball:

Tony Wroten – Leading the Sixers to a win over mighty Cleveland!  Well they yanked Waiters – yikes if you streamed him like I did in a league – and only had Kevin Love (28/19).  Seriously though – it was 5-on-1.  Murder, She Wroten for 20/1/8 with his usual 5 TO.  But his FT shooting is improving (4-6 last night) and is still useful if you can handle the ratios.

Michael Carter-Williams Stay strong with MCW, you get gems like this!  18/6/13/2/1 with only 1 TO and hitting 8-19 shots.  Even as a MCW apologist, you do have to note this was against Matthew Dellavedova.  No Uncle Drew for you!  If MCW has been a headache for ya – I know that’s a lot of you! – this is a perfect sell-high game.

K.J. McDaniels A lot of drop KJ comments, but had a solid night last night for 12/3/4/0/2 shooting 5-8 FG & 2-3 3PTM.  He was brutal the previous 4, but I could see some greener pastures ahead.  If there’s grass on the field, play ball!  Oh wait, I don’t think I should use that…

Bismack Biyombo He’s still pretty far down the totem pole of widely available bigs, but showed a little sign of life for 4/10/0/1/2 in 27 minutes last night.  Plays like a totem pole on offense!  Tries to avoid the fouls/freebie stripe at all costs…

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Only 18 minutes whilst battling foul trouble.  He’d been picking it up lately, but there’s a big alarm going off as he had 3 TO again last night – even in the low minutes – and 2+ TO the past 5 games.  I’d still take KJ Micky D’s over him.

Cody Zeller “I’m the best Zeller!  I can’t miss!”  8-8 FG, 4-4 FT, 1-1 in showing up older bro.  20/7/1 with a swat.  Got a little extra run with MKG opening up some extra F minutes, but he’s starting to show a little life with Al Jefferson groining.

Jared Sullinger – Brad Stevens is ridiculous for barely playing him a couple weeks ago!  22/8/1/2/4 shooting 8-16 FG and 6-6 FT.  Brad is a Bully for not playing Sully!

Evan Turner Remember when I had to constantly remind everyone how bad at basketball he was?

Rajon Rondo “Is this goal regulation size, or WHAT?!”  Shot an atrocious 1-13 FG on top of 0-2 FT, but at least racked up a 2/10/14/2/0 line with only 1 TO.

Jarrett Jack There we go!  Back on track Jack for 20/4/10, but did make Slim look like Slimadamus as he didn’t hit a trey or log a steal in 44 minutes.  To that hatred I say, “let’s share Jack’s dimebag!”

Brook Lopez Started at the 5 and looked pretty good out there.  22/13/0/1/4 hitting 11-21 shots.  Rendered Mason Plumlee near unusabe, as Prof Plum only put up 7/7/0/0/2 with 3 TO and 3-6 FT.  He still started and played 32 minutes, and Brolo’s feet are still made our of porcelain, so I’m giving the dear ol’ Professor a little more leash.

Tyreke Evans Ummmm, what?  With Eric Gordon back, Evans came off the bench… What in the world!  He still played 34 minutes and played through being sick, so maybe this was just a temporary reprieve.  Evans did his thing with 21/7/4/1/3 – fluky blocks – shooting 7-14 (good for him) with 6 TO.  He’s a SF MCW!  Notice how I skipped over any Eric Gordon thoughts – my advice is to skip over him yourself.  And if your life is so bad in an uber-deep league that you own Austin Rivers, well he looks like your undercarriage after a night with Amanda Bynes – mostly bumped.

Jimmy Butler He’s really good…  22/5/1/3/1 hitting 7-17 FG (2-4 3PTM) and 6-7 FT.  Everyone on the Bulls had great fantasy outings last night.  Even a…

Nikola Mirotic …sighting!  27 minutes of 17/8/1/0/2 ball.  Still not much you can do with it in standards except be ready to pounce if a Bulls big goes down.

Josh Smith – What in the Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern is going on out there?!  Smoove is taking 20 shots?!  10-20 FG (yes, 1-5 3PTM to sink it down) for 21/6/2/3/0.  Somehow avoided going to the FT line, but still hurt ya with the 4 TO.

Trevor Ariza Rainbow alert!  7/6/5/3/2 and still giving you solid numbers while he’s been horrifically cold shooting the ball.  9-33 FG the past 4 games, including 2-18 from deep.  When asked about his FG% shrinkage he said HE WAS IN THE POOL!  “Somebody watched Seinfeld last night…”

Jusuf Nurkic Unleash the hounds!  Pounded up on the soft Wolves front line (minus Gorgui) for 14/6/1/2/4.  Hit 7-11 shots and is as smooth as cranberry Jus.  It’s the pickup Nurkic in all 12ers period!  +17 in 22 minutes to Timofey Mozgov‘s horrific -10 in 17 minutes.  “Hey, Cleveland, I see you’re picking up some scrubby dudes, AND you need a big!  Mozgov for… Wild Thing Vaughn!”

J.J. Hickson – Out of nowhere 16/11/1/2/0 line hitting 8-10 FG.  And of course we have to see the Manimal getting kenneled again…  15/7/2/0/0 in only 24 minutes for Kenneth Faried, but this was a mad blowout early that got a little closer in late garbage time.  Either way, somebody call PETA!  Unethical treatment of Manimals!

Arron Afflalo – Scored 34 empty points with 4 treys.  ThrAGNOF!  Well, he’s usually a hold, but he’s mad hot right now for Daily Leagues.

Mo Williams – Started over Zach LaVine for 17/4/7 and 3 treys.  LaVine was latrine.  I’m still lukewarm at best for Mo Will, but if you needed a PG in a 12er, he’s worth a spec medium-term add.

Cleanthony Early – Mr. Clean getting some run!  7/2/4/2/1 in 29 minutes.  Definitely a target in deepers, but even with the Knicks cleaning house, I’d imagine I’d go with other options even in 14ers.

Jose Calderon Even with all those guys gone, 13/0/6/0/0 with 3 treys is the best he’s got.

Quincy Acy – Solid dubdub for 19/14, with a shocking 2-3 3PTM in there.  He had 3 treys total this season, with 8 in his career heading into last night.  Deep leaguers should keep an eye on Acy, if they wanna House of Cards like Spacey.

Donald Sloan Wow, rough night for my streamer calls as C.J. Watson returned and Waiters was yanked from the Cavs game mere minutes before tip.  Watson is terrible and made Sloan terrible in reserve minutes.  Lots of terrible.

Dante Exum TheAGNOF!  And a true ThrAGNOF game!  13/0/0/0/0 with three treys.  And the only guy to handle the ball was…

Joe Ingles …who could be called “Mr. Fundamental”.  8/9/7/2/0 in 37 minutes, as Trey Burke sat with strep throat.  Burke almost played, so I no hablo Ingles for anything other than very deep league short-term production.

Jordan Hill – Rewards benefit the patient man!  Awful fortune cookie advice of the year right there.  23/14/2, no steals or blocks, but 10-15 FG and 3-4 FT.  Whew, glad I held on and recommended Razzball Nation do the same!

Ryan Kelly – The return of R Kelly!  Started at SF for 2/7/3, with a rusty 1-6 FG and 3 TO.  Wes Johnson has a strained hip that seems like a lengthy-ish injury, so R Kelly might get some mad run at the 3.

Chris Kaman – Ohhhhh, NOW the Blazers start Kaman…  27 minutes of 8/11/3/0/3 while Meyers Leonard played 19 for 12/12 and three treys.  Should be a few weeks of a time share between those guys with Joel Freeland‘s shoulder all popped out and Robin Lopez‘s hand all broken.  And Thomas Robinson continues to be shunned.

Damian Lillard What is 39 divisible by?!?!? 13!  It’s an Omen!  39/6/5/2/1 shooting 12-21 FG (4-8 3PTM 11-13 FT).  Slim – would you rather Lillard or John Wall ROS?  I’ll ask ya on the Pod today too.

Serge Ibaka Good buy low window is all the solace I can make out of Ibaka being terrible the past 3 games as a big Ibaka owner…  Why couldn’t I have gotten more #1 picks to get The Brow?!?!

 

Streamers/Cheap Daily League Picks:

John Henson (33% owned) – Wow, I didn’t expect to see Mr. Muppet owned in that many leagues…  Either way, you’ve got a 2/3 shot he’s out there in a Slim Pickens of 2 games tonight.  Off a horrible 5-foul performance last time out, I could see Henson having a nice one against the Sunnies.

Cory Joseph (16% owned) – Tony Parker is questionable, but mainly he’s old with a bad hammy.  Either way I expect Cojo to bring some mojo that you can buylow.

 

I hope everyone got a big start to their weeks, and we’ll catch you tomorrow!

    I’m curious about cashing out on MCW but I’m still kind of happy using him as a role player when I’m going for purely counting stats.
    What do you think is the best I could get for him without really losing much in points/ast/steals?

    Oh, and for your John Wall Lillard question to Slim. I say Lillard – I’ve actually offered Westbrook for Lillard on the back of his crazy durability so far along with his awesome playoff schedule.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Matt: Hmmmm, probably not someone that great and if you’re happy with him and the counting stats, I’d likely hold. Most top 50 guys wouldn’t be given up for him, but you could always shop to a team with bad PG. Yeah I’m taking Lillard too and so did Slim. He’s been unreal.

  2. Connor says:

    10 team H2H 10 cat league with FT made as the 10th category.
    PG- Lillard, Rubio, MCW, Jrue Holiday
    SG- Harden, Beal
    SF- Batum, Kawhi
    PF- Faried, Ryan Anderson
    C- Drummond, Horford, Gortat

    I normally like having a streaming spot, do you see any glaring weaknesses? Gortat has been frustrating recenty
    Waiver options include IT2, PBev, Bogut, Gobert, and pretty much any Knicks player that could benefit from the deal yesterday. You guys are the best and I appreciate any input.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Gortat indeed has been annoying… Nope looks pretty balanced, I could see blocks being hit or miss, but Kawhi (when he’s back) and Batum help a tad there. Looks pretty good! I don’t see any of your guys droppable for any of that on the wire. I think you’re golden, really appreciate that man!

  3. Carl says:

    I’m in need of a big, and one guy in my league needs a guard.

    Which of these guards wiuld you be willing to give up for Draymond ? How about for Drummond?

    -Dragic
    -Knight
    -Kemba
    -Collison
    -Oladipo

    Thanks!

    • dom says:
      (link)

      @Carl: i traded Monta Ellis for Drummond earlier in the year and am very happy with it. I’m punting free throw % and he’s so bad on that category but for the rest of the year he’s an elite source of rebounds blocks steals with good FG%

      • Carl says:
        (link)

        @dom: He’s also got Markieff. I’m weakest on boards, which makes me want to go after Drummond, but am not currently punting FT%, which is obviously the case against Drummond. I’m in 1st place so not trying to take too big of a risk here, just trying to get another big guy on my squad to even things out position-wise.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Carl: I;m all out on Oladipo, only reason his value has been good lately is steals, which I think are fluky for him. Would trade him for either no question. I’m huge on Draymond, and Drummond I’m fine at with what he’s producing, so it looks to me I’d give up any of those guards for either one.

    hey JB,

    Looking for 2 guys to stream tonight, consindering both of your streaming calls (mostly Henson) as well as J Meeks and PJ Tucker. Could use some 3’s from Meeks and basketballmonster projects Tucker as the most valuable tonight when ignoring FT% and points as is my league situation #analysis! Any thoughts? Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dom: Ehhh, I’m not big on Tucker. Parker looks like he’s playing, so prob not Cojo. I’d go Meeks and Henson, especially ignoring FT%. Meeks is a lot of points which I know you’re ignoring, but so many treys upside! #analyzed!

        @JB Gilpin: Exactly! Melo is a fkn loser! I have never drafted him, never will. I think he’s extremely overrated. He plays no defense, that’s why he wouldn’t go play for Coach Thibs!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Bye Felicia: Thibs might permanently lose his voice trying to coach Melo!

  7. Knicks endless garbage time says:
    (link)

    I’m all over Cleanthony Early. In a rotiss league with only Pts, Rebs & Assts (start 10 guys, using any positions) but one of those has to be a rookie. Z.LaVine has been great for me for this requirement with Rubio out but this looks like perfect timing with the Knicks trade and nabbing Early.

  8. Joe says:
    (link)

    Huh. Thought I posted a question but I guess not. Sorry if you wind up with doubles.

    I have Gobert in my 3-keeper league. Do you like Gobert or Nurkic more, both ROS and beyond? And would you take either of them over David West?

    P.S. Did you really mean that sell-high MCW stuff, or was that JB-speak for “Please, just go get rid of him now so you don’t keep bi***ing to me about him!” (I ask because I don’t mind punting TOs – in fact, I prefer it since it often suggests a high usage rate that translates well into other cats, but I feel like low FG% devalues my Durant a little, which is why I’m not sure what to do about MCW.)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Joe: Hmmm I don’t think I saw another before now… Maybe Spam filter got ya or something, but I didn’t see it. I’m going Nurkic for both. Very very short term I could see Gobert as the pick with Kanter out, but he’s so bad at the stripe. Nah, gotta stick with West though. Hah, nope not that comment at all, if you’re not minding it then I would hold out. Sucks Durant shot so bad last night though!

    • Philzilla (Cats Like War Milk) says:
      (link)

      @Joe: Trade Durant for Harden, then you won’t feel so bad about FG% because it will be shot.

  9. Tony says:

    Rank em for dynasty/keeper purposes:

    Cole Aldrich

    jusuf Nurkic

    what are your thoughts about Batum ROS? My heart say to trade to get him and buy low…but my brain tells me no. I was thinking about offering markieff morris (bad playoff schedule) and like arron afflalo for Batum.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

    PG: Rubio, Calderon, Mo Williams
    SG: Harden, Meeks
    SF: Kawhi, Draymond
    PF: Millsap, Dirk, Henson
    C: Favors, Nurkic, Jordan Hill, Len

    My pgs have been awful and near the bottom in assists. Dropped Lin and Chalmers recently..

    Near the end in pts as well.

    How do I improve my team? Who do I trade? Harden?

      @Scort: Well Rubio nearing a return will help. I’d start by shopping Dirk and Kawhi. If you need production now, a 1st or 2nd overall team would be interested in Kawhi. Dirk with some future DNPs could hurt you and he has good name value. Kawhi for… A good PG and a decent PG? If a team has a ton of em?

      • Scort says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Thanks.

        Bogut is on waivers. Should I drop Jordan Hill or John Henson for him?

        And who should I pick up for steals? Tony Allen, Elfrid Payton, Chalmers, or Larkin?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Scort: Given your standing I wouldn’t grab Bogut just yet. Deffff want Elfrid Payton of those guys on my team

  12. Real_Cigs says:
    (link)

    Time to drop Noel? I’m looking at Aldrich, Nurkic, and Bogut with a bunch of other guys in an 8 team / 9 cat free agent pool

    I’m in 4th in the league. Leading in 3ptm while holding 2 injured for most of the season and my worst cats are REB and TO’s so I think I might just be punting them. Near the top in FG%, FT%. I’m looking to strengthen Blocks, Steals, Points, FG%, and FT%, Assists in that order with this move.

    Other players in FA: Covington, Wiggins, Gobert, D. Lee, G. Hill, T. Zeller, Henson, Olynyk, Mason Plumlee (takes so many damn FT’s though)

    My Team:
    PG: Dragic, Teague, Knight, Rubio
    SG: Hayward, Wes Matthews, Antetokounmpo
    SF: Durant, Parsons
    PF: Ibaka, Millsap, Kieff Morris
    C: Noel

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Real_Cigs: Nahhhh, Nurkic is getting close though. Whoa, gimme Wiggins for Noel. Shooting better %s and hitting the needs you have pretty hard.

      • Real_Cigs says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Hahaha, Isn’t that how it goes? You wait just a liiiitle too long and someone else picks up Wiggins. Would you grab Covington then and keep an eye on Nurkic? Covington still has decent steals and blocks, and has better FT% than Wiggins.

        I’ll definitely keep my eye on Nurkic though. I picked him up in a 14 team points league a few days ago and hopefully he gets unleashed (although Shaw has a problem with letting his players play)

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Real_Cigs: Ugh that sucks man! Nah I think I would hold then. Covington has some risk that the Sixers do something funky and doesn’t have the Pts upside. Indeed, Shaw is annoying – hopefully the Nugs can dump Mozgov and let Nurk loose

          • Real_Cigs says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: I couldn’t stop myself. Got way too excited when Mozgov was traded and picked up Nurkic and dropped Noel. Keep it up Jusef!

    JB, got a big trade question for you. 16 team, h2h…8 make the playoffs. Due to that we have no byes. I am in first and have a nice lead so looking long-term/playoffs…ours are the typical week 21-23. My Conley/Horford for Paul/Robin Lopez? It is Chris Paul, but I am hesitant.

    I ran the ROS per-game projections on a trusted site and my main gains are ft%…that just doesn’t move the needle for me. As far as any other gains is was slim. I have no issue waiting on Lopez injury, but not sure the situation will be ideal with Kaman in the mix. Horford hasn’t been great but does what I need…my team is very balanced so not sure I wanna mess with it. But, gotta ask and at least think about this with it being Paul. My team…

    PG – Conley
    SG- Bledsoe
    G – Greek Greak
    SF – Parsons
    PF- Horford
    F- Bosh
    C – Al Jeff ( obviously hurt)
    UTIl – Dieng

    Bench…Len, Neal, Teletovic, Splitter ( stream slot).

    Playoff schedule for Paul is 4/3/4 and for Lopez 4/4/4. Conley is 4/4/3 and Horford 4/3/3. My gut is telling me to hold, but every once in a while that thing is wrong…ha! Your advice is appreciated!

      @JoeMorgan’sMustache: Oops…Left out Meeks…have him as well. Been starting him on heavy game nights at UTIL and Dieng at C with Al Jeff out. It is daily btw.

        @JoeMorgan’sMustache: Wow, that’s a doozy! If it were a 10 teamer I think I would take it. But I think I’m holding too since it’s 16 deep. I would think the projected numbers would give you an assist boost too, btu I guess Horfords handful keep that even. I like your solid depth too much in that deep a league to mess with it. Keep riding that mustache and get the title!

    In H2H punting ft% in a 12 team league I’ve been hoarding talented bigs to see if one would hit. I already had DeAndred Jordan, Dwight Howard, Derrick Favors and Sullinger. I dropped Terrence Jones and Bogut while they were injured replacing them with Nurcik, Alex Len and Steven Adams. Would you hold on to all of them or cut one of the young guns loose?

      @Pimptatious P: Len is pretty easily the last guy of your bigs… I’d imagine blocks are more than covered, so yeah I’d probably drop Len to address another need – if nothing is glaring then maybe not

    Hi JB,

    Always enjoy your quality writing!

    What’s Jack’s prospect ROS? He got dropped in our league and wondering if I should claim him off waiver.

    Domo arigato!

      @tokyofantasy: Thanks so much man! I like Jack – won’t be great in treys or steals, but decent PG Pts/Reb/Ast with a solid low TO rate. I still think he’s close to must own in most leagues. Any time Mr. Roboto!

    Thanks to this site I am cruising in 1st, but need to add a PG. George Hill, Dion Waiters and Jarret Jack are all on waivers. Do you recommend picking up any of these guys and if so which one (or two)?

      @Baren: Awesome man, glad we’re helping! I’d rank them Jack, Hill, Waiters, with a pretty big gap between them all. If you can nab Jack without dropping anyone too good, I would

    So…the question is mirotic worth a high upside stash? I still have asik at the end of my bench and I really don’t mind dumping him for something that could be an investment in the future? Team is solid I am hovering in the top 3 of a 12 teamer, or would you rather just add Adams and call it a day lol. Other “stashes/fliers” include Stephenson, t jones, motiejunas, Wes Johnson, smart, kaman, shumpert, koq, sanders, splitter, acy, pek…cmon Jb tell me your secret ace in the hole FA! I do have a preference for reb/blk/FG/TO but I also don’t mind getting the best player available! thanks for the help 🙂

      @B-rad: I’d likely just add Adams haha. Def going with Adams as he fits those needs to a T. Hah – ace in the hole FA of the others… Acy could surprise as he’s starting to shoot 3s. Acy in the hole! That just sounds wrong…

    Oh man I’m groaning after dropping Jordan Hill for Mason Plumlee just yesterday! If Hill plays good again I may try to pick Hill back up for Plumlee, good idea? Ah, fantasy regret.

      @miles proudfoot.: Hah, yup fantasy has lots of regrets… I would probably go back to Hill if you can, so much better FT% and should be more consistent, albeit with less blocks.

        @JB Gilpin: I’m not sure how much waiver money I’ll use as I think I’d like to gamble and use that last spot on TJones if/when he comes back. Right? I don’t know.

          @miles proudfoot.: Ehhhhh Josh Smith there clouds PF minutes a lot. I would think Dmo loses out the most, but I don’t see much for tjones this year.

    Yo JB happy 2-game Tuesday,

    I just got offered Ariza for Jennings straight up in my 9-cat head to head league where I am currently in first. Jennings has been on fire since the trade but I am worried he will come back down to earth soon. My team consists of:

    Kyle Lowry
    George Hill
    Brandon Jennings
    Dwayne Wade
    Kyle Korver
    Danny Green
    Robert Covington
    Paul Milsap
    Zach Zandolph
    Tristan Thompson
    Anthony Davis
    Andrew Bogut
    Derrick Favors

    Appreciate the help you have been all year! People in my league have now forgotten how shitty I did in football this year.
