What’s up Razzball nation??? This past week had some pretty spectacular performances from unexpected players. Keeping that in mind, I’d like to recognize Lou Williams, Otto Porter, and J.R. Smith for breaking into the top 20 ranks for the week! All of them are owned in under 80% of Yahoo leagues, so if you’re lucky, one of them may be floating around on your wire! Probably not in any RCLs, but in the personal leagues with your buddies that don’t pay attention, you might score big!
RazzWired All-Star Nominations!
In the spirit of All-Star weekend coming up, we need some nominations for pickup of the first half so far! Also, I’ll try to put together the waiver all star team! So this week, nominate as many players as you want, in the comments section, that you think deserve to be on the RazzWired All-Star squad! Or, if you’re lazy, just comment that has been your best pickup or that you think was the best pickup so far. Next week, I’ll put the top nominees into a poll to decide who gets featured as the first half RazzWired MVP! If anyone needs clarification on the instructions, feel free to ask! I’m not quite sure how clear the instructions were, but yeah! Comment below!
Bonus: Throw out your favorite pickup lines in the comments as well, and I’ll either have a vote on the best or just feature my favorites! I was debating about it, but hey, this is Razzball! We can do whatever we want! (If I’m wrong, feel free to email JB, with all complaints…[editor’s note – don’t do that]) Anyway, have fun with it!
Ok, here’s the actual content for this week!
- Dennis Schroder – PG – 23% – He’s looking good again. Granted, Teague has had lingering ankle issues, but we all know the upside is clearly there for this guy. I’d be remiss if I didn’t include him.
- Mirza Teletovic – SF/PF – 27% – THRAGNOF! Mirza has been killing it from deep lately, and with Len out for a bit, he should continue to get run and a lot of shots. This Phoenix team is desperate for a spark with Bledsoe out.
- Tony Allen – SG/SF – 41% – The king of steals is back at it! I’m not sure how long it’s going to last, since Conley, Lee, and Barnes have been out for parts of the hot streak, but he’s definitely worth a stream while any of those guys are out of the lineup.
- Mario Chalmers – PG/SG – 26% – Back again! Conley is out with Achilles issues, and this could keep him out for a while. Rio is very close to a must-own while Conley is down.
Keep an eye on the Nets PG situation… It’s very ugly right now, but the opportunity is there. If Sloan or Larkin can take hold of at least 30 minutes, either one would be worth owning in most leagues. I can’t in good conscience advise picking up either at the moment though.
That’s it for this week everybody! Don’t forget to nominate your favorite pickups in the comments, and as always follow me on Twitter at @RazzWired for updates between Thursdays! Have a great week!
