Lucas Nogueira!  Over the last 7 days, Lucas has averaged 8.7/8/1/2/3 – Clearly, the 3 blocks are a great reason to stream him while he’s averaging 27 minutes per game. Plus, how can you not have that sweet fro on your team??  He’s owned at 40% at the moment, so he may not be there at this point though.

Outside of Nogueira, we have some very old names on the list… Let’s get to em!

  • Vince Carter – SG/SF – 9% – Whattttt??? VC is back on the list?? The 39 year old is more man than amazing, but he’s still producing while Tony Allen is down.  Carter is averaging 32 mins, with 19 points, a couple treys, 3.7 boards, and 3 assists.  He’s purely a stream play, but it really is incredible that he manages to stay relevant.
  • Jared Dudley – SG/SF/PF – 15% – That eligibility though!  It seems from the percentages that people don’t like to pick up these old farts… He’s put up fantastic THRAGNOF numbers this season, particularly the last week or so.  He’s my top option on the list if you need treys.
  • Seth Curry – PG/SG – 25% – After JB’s criticism [editor’s note – I motivated him!], Curry has gotten his act together and he’s now averaging 14 points, 2.3 treys, 5.3 boards, and 3 assists over the past 7 days.  Plus, the Mavs have major confidence in him, giving him 32 minutes a game over that period.
  • Maurice Harkless – He’s going to stick on this list until he’s over 50% owned!  Solid points, boards, and over a block a game for Mo, so give him a shot if he’s on your wire.
  • Kelly Olynyk – C – 27% – Nice boards and threes from a big man, so I’d take a flyer on him in most leagues.  I think he will get some time at backup center and PF when Horford comes back, so he may have some long term value.
  • Trey Lyles – PF – 32% – If you read JB’s notes yesterday, you’ll know that Favors is struggling to get back on the court.  Lyles is insanely gifted, and he’s a must own while Favors is out.

*Deep League Special*

  • Nemanja Bjelica – PF – 4% – He had one huge game, so I would probably wait and see what his role is, but Thibs clearly likes him, so his per minute value should be pretty good.

 

Now that we’re further into the season, I’m sure that trades are starting to go down in your league.  If you want one of your trades evaluated and featured in next column, comment it below!

That’s it for today!  Stay Razzy everyone, and enjoy our new player pages!

    What are your thoughts on Josh Richardson? I picked him up but I have to drop someone for George Hill when he returns. Is he only good because Dragic is out?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Matt M: I like him alot, he seems to be part of Miami’s future plans. Pick him up if he’s there. I didn’t feel the need to add him again because I have in previous articles, and he’s being pushed on the pod and daily notes.

      • Matt M. says:
        (link)

        @Adam: Thanks! I didn’t realize you had mentioned him before. Maybe you can add a little blurb saying who you mentioned before – just a thought. I already have him on my team. I’ll probably drop Plumlee for Sisqo Hill even though I have next to no forwards.

        • Adam

          Adam says:

          @Matt M.: I thought about it, but I was a bit rushed this week – I’ll try to work it into the future.

          Possibly trade for a forward with the excess guard/wings.

    IN a 12 team h2h daily 9 cat league, we don’t use TO’s we use FGM, FG%, FT%, PTS, 3’S, RBDS, AST, STL, BLK would you drop any combo drop who and add who if any ? ZBO, t frazier, nick young for tristan thompson , Vince carter , Patrick beverly. I only have 4 moves a week and have used two of them. P bev seems like a good pick up for my team. I only have 2 SG….. here is my team if it helps
    G====== Lin, n young, collison, Tim Frazier, Sergio rodriguez, dennis schrodder,
    F/C ====Horford, Zbo, T chandler, Anthony davis, D. Favors, rob covington, Draymond green.

    So which guys would you drop on my team to pick up one or 2 of those 3. with P bev the most needed I think with tim fraziers time going down. I know during the next week while T. F. time dwindling as jrue working his way back in and p bev working his way back to 30 min a game…. anyways thx for all your help. !!

    Drop NYoung or Jamaychal for Trey Lyles?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Trul: I’d drop Young if you don’t need threes and Green if you need the treys.

  4. miles proudfoot says:
    (link)

    How would you feel about my Brolo, TJ Warren and BKnight/Winslow for his Drummond, Dragic, and DBooker in a FT punt? What if it ends up excluding the knight/Winslow and booker elements? thanks!

    • miles proudfoot says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot:
      also, how much of a hold is capella (in a punt FT)? Thinking of using it for streaming or taking a flyer on Terrance jones. Shallow league.

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: I would take the drummond and Dragic for Warren and Brolo, if I understood that right.

      I think I would hold Capela – That 5 block game was encouraging and he isn’t getting volume at the free throw line.

  5. Chris says:
    (link)

    Thanks Adam!

    Trade question, all opinions are welcome!

    Someone wants Curry from me for

    Booker-Dragic and Gobert.

    12 Team league 9 cats.

    Thanks!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Chris: I think I’d rather have Curry and the two roster spots.

  6. Doctor G says:
    (link)

    Been floated an offer of my KD for James Harden. Actually KD + Oladipo, but I think thats too much to give up, so was thinking of countering the former. What are your thoughts? Would it make sense given my team build? This is my team:
    PG: Conley, Oladipo, Payton
    SG: Josh Richardson
    SF/PF: KD, TJ Warren, Gallo, Marcus Morris, Chandler Parsons
    PF/C: Millsap, Horford, Deandre Jordan, Nurkic
    IL: Lin, Tyreke
    Also, who is the most droppable guy on my roster for when Lin comes back? Was thinking J-Rich, but Marcus has really been scuffling lately. Thanks in advance for your input!!

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Doctor G: Take the Harden KD deal.
      Dipo shouldn’t be included.
      Tell him to quit being a nit
      Both are 1st rounders

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Doctor G: Yeah, I’d make the swap for Harden, I doubt he does that.

      Man that’s tough…. If you keep Durant and his boards, then drop nurk… If you make the swap for Harden, then drop for Parsons I think… It’s sad to say that, but it’s just going to take him awhile to get his act together. I honestly wouldn’t drop anyone for Reke, when he comes back.

      • Adam

        Adam says:
        (link)

        @Adam: To clarify, definitely don’t include Oladipo lol. He’s starting to come around.

        • Doctor G says:
          (link)

          @Adam: Thanks for the input boys!! And yeah, not including Dipo. Doubt he’d take KD for Jaaaaames, I go Harden this b*tch, but I’ll give it a shot!!

  7. Noah says:

    My squad in a 10 team 9-cat standard H2H league with an IL spot:

    PG: Bledsoe, George Hill
    SG: Bazemore, Eric Gordon, Wesley Matthews
    SF: Kawhi, Crowder, Parsons, Winslow
    PF: Dieng, Favors, Marvin Williams
    C: Whiteside, Nurkic

    – Im really struggling with FG% and feel like I should have enough big man stats if i trade Nurkic. His situation is pretty tough in the minutes battle with Jokic plus they’ve been giving Faried centre minutes. Would an offer of Nurkic for Fournier be worth looking into? Also, would you recommend dropping any of my current guys. My low-end players are all sinking my fg% on a team where it should be a strength with whiteside, leonard, and dieng as 3 of my top 4 picks. Any recommended moves? Holla at ya boy. Thanks

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Noah: I think i would hold Nurk with Faried being inconsistent and not known for his health. or they could be showcasing him for trades. I don’t see how him and chandler fit into the nugs long term plans.

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Noah: I’d hold Nurk for now – Drop Matthews and Maybe even Gordon to fix those percentages – Possibly grabbing someone like Richardson on your wire. I’m sure there are good options in a 10 team league.

      • Noah says:
        (link)

        @Adam:

        Okay and what are your thoughts on Marvin Williams? Nice threes but fg% at about 35

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @Noah: I could see cutting him, or at least benching him til he comes around – nice upside there. It depends who you’d replace him with.

  8. runfast says:

    Need some trade help please! I was offered cp3/Aaron Gordon for my Bledsoe/Gay/Beal in a 12 team h2h 9cat Standard.

    I am already punting FG/TO with my team and feel I will be losing a lot of production by accepting this trade. It is hard to pass on though as I can obtain a top 10 player…

    Squad
    PG: Lilliard, Teague, Mudiay, Holiday (IR)
    SG: Bledsoe, Miles, Beal
    SF: Gay, Harkless
    PF: Dieng, T Booker, Noel (IR)
    C: Cousins, M Gasol, Chandler

    Other considerations to take include injury risk for Bledsoe/Beal. Im not too high on Aaron Gordon either, if he isnt getting stl/blk, he’s worthless.

    Thank you!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @runfast: I’m holding on that – CP3 isn’t fantastic if you’re punting a percentage and TOs. Bledsoe should rebound just fine, and Gordon simply isn’t that great this year – No idea what the coaching staff is doing there this year.

  9. Tyler says:

    Hey Adam,

    What are your thoughts on my team:

    Lowry,Beverley,Sergio,LouWill
    Giannis,Gay,Hayward,Harkless,Lyles
    Gobert, Myles, Ibaka, Olynyk
    IL-Tyreke,Dragic

    I’m thinkin might be low on points so might as well punt that cat? and maybe trade Rudy Gay for Trevor Ariza? seems I need the extra steals.
    Or one of Gay/Hayward + LouWill/Sergio perhaps for Paul George?

    Probably dropping Lyles once Dragic is back.

    Appreciate it.

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: I’d definitely swap Gay for Ariza – If you can get PG-13 with one of those deals, then go for it, but I think Gay for Ariza is more likely.

      I like this team a lot, especially when Dragic comes back. Lyles makes sense to drop, but I’d drop Harkless first if the Favors is going to be out for a bit, so check that first.

      • Tyler says:
        (link)

        @Adam: I really like Harkless for the 30mins starter role.
        How about Olynyk vs Lyles?

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @Tyler: Frankly, whichever one gets more minutes haha. Lyles until Favors come back though. I’m not sure what Horford will do to Olynyk’s value

  10. Quintero says:
    (link)

    Great one Adam, thanks!

    Nurkic or Olynyk ROS. Thanks!

    • Bye Felica says:
      (link)

      @Quintero: I want Nurk. Horford is coming back yesterday…. ugh

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Quintero: Nurk still, but not as clear cut as it was at the start of the year. I think it partially depends on whether the Nuggets move Chandler and/or Faried.

  11. Bye Felica says:

    Vin-sanity has to be juicing. we’re the same age and I couldn’t run the court for 5 mins

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Bye Felica: Wouldn’t surprise me! I never put anything past legends like that though – The way he plays now, reminds me of Jordan on the Wizards… Slow, but the fundamentals are there.

  12. Rajeev Sewani says:
    (link)

    what should i do about D Favors and C. Parsons?… their unproductivity is killing me!

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Rajeev Sewani: Man, that’s tough… I think you have to hold out a bit longer. I have a feeling that Parsons could be a second half guy, but I wouldn’t blame you for dropping if there’s a good option out there.

      • Rajeev Sewani says:
        (link)

        @Adam:

        Kinda agree with parsons, thinking of cutting Favors for Tristan Thompson.. Ive built a punt FT and Points team..

        PG – Steph, Teague, Rubio
        SG – Korver
        SF -Crowder Parsons MKG Harkless
        PF -Draymond Favors TajGibson
        C- DeAndre Capela

        Also thinking of eventually dropping harkless in favor of Cj miles

        We are a 10 team league

        Any thoughts?

        Thanks!!

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @Rajeev Sewani: Definitely drop Harkless for Miles… I’d hold favors for a bit, but I wouldn’t blame you for the swap in a 10 teamer

  13. Tyler says:
    (link)

    Hey Adam!

    So I have Dragic returning in my FT punt 10teamer.
    Who should I drop?

    G-Oladipo,Holiday,Payton,Hood,Ariza
    F-Lebron,Warren,T.Booker,ThadYoung,Parsons
    C-Whiteside,Deandre,Capela

    IL-Dragic,Lin

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: Wow, that’s a stacked team. I’d have to vote for Parsons unfortunately… I’d look to trade a guard though, before Lin returns.

      • Tyler says:
        (link)

        @Adam: haha i think 10teamers everyones stacked.
        What shud i look for to trade one of my guards? Think i have enough big man stats.

        Shouldnt i drop thadyoung instead for his low ceiling as a 4th option? Or maybe booker? But love his steals.

        • Adam

          Adam says:
          (link)

          @Tyler: Hey Whiteside and Deandre are both first rounders with free throw punt haha.

          Yeah, you’re right – probably drop Thad. Booker has been a top 40 value so far, and there’s no reason he won’t keep it up! I didn’t factor in that Whiteside and Deandre have those stats locked in for you.

  14. Rodrigo says:
    (link)

    2pts blocks 3pts steals -1 fg 7dd 12tdouble..
    My waiver wire is currently: Trey Lyles, Moe Harkless, & Terrence Jones. I dropped Rubio for Lyles since I had picked up Rubio off free agency anyways. But should I keep Rubio? Or stick with Lyles, Moe and Jones. I like the upside of Lyles without favors and Jones in general. Let me know what I should do.

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Rodrigo: I like the DD upside with T-Jones given those settings… I could also see holding Lyles until favors comes back and then finding a replacement at that point. Either way should work!
