So here we are in the semi-finals of the H2H playoffs! It feels like I was just writing sleeper posts for the season yesterday… Just for the record, I would like to pat myself on the back for calling Greg Monroe a bust.  That was probably my most contentious bust call during the preseason, and it didn’t look like it would pan out at the start.  The call would look even better if the Bucks had come to their senses earlier… Monroe just doesn’t fit that team.  I should apologize to Rondo for the bust call, but a selfish player with those percentages, will always be a bust to me.

*Here’s where I need the opinions:  What content would you like to see this basketball off-season?  I’ll do some sleepers and busts again later on, but are there any other ideas?  Possibly an alternative set of early rankings, individual player previews for the next season, or maybe something else!  Leave your thoughts in the comments!*

Ok! Back to the here and now!

Tim Hardaway Jr. has been on a bit of a tear lately, with 11 treys over his last 3 games.  Bazemore is struggling, and the Hawks definitely need a spark to inspire the team during another playoff run.  Granted, the sample size is small, but we’ve known that Hardaway has it in him.  At just 9% owned, he’s a great source of THRAGNOF with some upside.

 

  • Tim Hardaway Jr. – SG/SF – 9% – See above! What??? You didn’t read all that? Come on man!
  • Channing Frye – PF/C – 11% – Sticking with the THRAGNOF with some upside theme – Frye has been lighting it up lately, and frankly, the Cavs offense looks best with him in the game.  I don’t know how long it’ll last, but he’s worth an add while he’s this hot.  I could definitely see 20+ mins a game down the stretch, especially if Love is rested some.  He’s low end, but you could do worse.
  • P.J. Tucker – SG/SF – 39% – Yes, I know I’ve been pushing him all year… He’s so good though!  Plus, he gets a cake matchup on Friday against the team that is the best at playing the worst defense!  Did I make that too complicated? Sure!  There is nothing complicated about streaming against the Kings though! Go do it! Yes you! Yes, right now!
  • Raymond Felton – PG/SG – 7% – This is a bit of a gut call.  Parsons is out for the season, so Felton will naturally get an uptick in minutes.  Plus, he has some nice matchups against Golden State and Sacramento for his next two… Plus, he plays Sunday, which has a light schedule this week.  I’ll most likely be streaming him.
  •  Allen Crabbe – PG/SG – 10% – He just busted out for a career high 6 treys on Sunday.  He plays the Sixers on Saturday, and the Kings on Monday.  Are you sensing a trend here? He’s another THRAGNOF with a bit of multi-cat upside.  Definitely a solid pickup, for Monday’s game, or pick him up for Saturday and judge if you can afford to hold him til Monday.

 

That’s all for now folks!  Be sure to leave your feedback on the question above! Have a great weekend everyone, and good luck in the finals!

    Dont forget Salah Mejri.. He gets a decent uptick.. could help teams in need of Rebounds and swats through the playoffs.

      @NY Fanta C: Good point! I only had a one game sample size when I wrote the article, but it looks like Dallas is going to give him all the run he can handle. Zaza is just gassed right now, and they want him for the playoffs.

    Great post! Unfortunately I traded my Hayward and JV for Monroe when he was still playing well….I’m in a keeper league so I hope he gets traded to a team that will actually utilize him well.

    Off-season ideas:
    1. Early rankings would be good, esp for dynasty/keeper leagues that have off-season trades.
    2. Perhaps a draft review for rookies, again, nice for dynasty leagues (also standard).

      @Poisonous Stuff: Yeah that system just doesn’t work for him… Not sure what Milwaukee was thinking. It wouldn’t surprise me if they move him for a team with a PG. I could see a swap with Atlanta if Horford leaves to the Celtics. I believe the Hawks liked Monroe during his free agency.

      Hmmm ok, those both sound like fun! I’ll have to do that analysis anyway for the REL, so polishing them up and posting shouldn’t be too hard! As long as JB doesn’t mind competition with his way too early rankings haha.

      @sliimbo: Wesley Matthews is definitely intriguing with Parsons out. I’d probably add him for that.

      Dropping Deng for PJ makes sense.

    Elfrid Payton or PJ Tucker? Need a G playing Saturday.

      @Jeff: Definitely Tucker. I like Elfrid, but I wouldn’t trust Skiles farther than I can throw him… I’m pretty strong, but Skiles is a hefty dude!
