You know, Raymond Felton broke his hand last year, and this is no joke, less than two weeks after Twinkies were officially discontinued.  I imagine him hearing the news after a Knicks loss, and punching the glass out at a NYC convenience store.  “How will I ever carboload before rolling onto the court!”  Then Twinkies, after being bought out and licensed, again appeared on store shelves in July 2013.  And ohhhh boy, was it an offseason to remember for Roly Poly Felton!  Even though he’s always looked like a big boy, concerns about his weight surfaced yet again, and this year his stats were down before a myriad of injuries took their toll.  This past groin injury, where Felton reportedly heard a “pop”, finally got him to listen to the advice of the trainers.  “When my little guy down there told me something was wrong, I finally listened.”  Knicks head athletic trainer Roger Hinds had to think on the fly, eventually settling on a 12-grain/cashew cream vegan Twinkie-substitute.  Instead of the 15-17 off-the-shelf Twinkies comprising the majority of Felton’s daily diet, he was down to 12-14 “healthy-makers” (as he called them) while rehabbing his groin injury.  “The first three or four were kinda funky, but then you get that urge for more-and-more just like the old ones.”  After losing 34 pounds in 72 hours, Felton was ready to rejoin the team in practice.  “I felt great out there, mobile, my arms stopped running into my love handles when I was drivin’ to the hoop.”  Another 42 pounds came off in the next week, and he was ready to play last night.  And man, did those 76 lost pounds come in handy!  13/5/14/1/0 against the Heat in a surprise win.  I caught up with him after the game: “No J.R. Smiff in the game helped me keep the rock and everything runnin’ through me.  He can untie e’rybody’s shoelaces all I care!”  Back to reality, I did watch this game, and the bulk of those assists came on dishes to Carmelo Anthony burying jumpers, so the assist total is obviously a big outlier.  But Felton did look good.  Made good moves, looked agile, and more importantly, made the Knicks look better while playing 39 minutes.  We can have fun all we want, but I think I was wrong to be a little dismissive on him returning.  I like him right now over D.J. Augustin and Kendall Marshall for example.  More staying power, and while the most injury prone of the bunch, I think helps you more in the long-haul.  Must-own in 12-teamers, depends on need and depth in 10ers.  Here’s what else I saw last night:

Eric Bledsoe – Major buzzkill.  Or as Tobias would say, “douche chill”!  Eh, according to Urban Dictionary that doesn’t really work, but whatever!  Knee surgery, and is without a timetable.  He had a similar procedure done in 2011 and it took four months.  I don’t want to say it’s safe to drop him everyone yet, but it sounds pretty close without an official time table.

Gerald Green – The poster child for ThrAGNOF is gonna continue to get big minutes.  A must own in all leagues right now, even if he is a big ThrAGNOF.

Dwayne Wade – One of the most head-scratchingest of % games you’ll ever see.  11-15 FG, 1-1 3PTM, but 0-6 from the stripe?!  Did Andre Drummond possess his body last night?!  I think even Drummond mighta made one!  Hey, at least Wade is playing…

Il Diva – Bargnani was decent on offense for 9-13 19 Pts, but didn’t do much else.  It’s interesting he’s not shooting threes anymore.  Only 7 treys in his last 17 games as opposed to 21 in his first 18.  This was his highest scoring game since December 14th.  The allure of threes I think is keeping him owned in a few too many leagues.

Amar’e Stoudemire – Mr. Glass! 14/11 last night.  Has surprisingly looked not dead.  First dub-dub on the year and should be owned in deeper leagues, even if your league mates point and laugh at you.

Tim Hardaway Jr. – Had a sick putback dunk.  Ray Allen had game, then lost game.

Randy Foye – Absolutely on fire most of this game.  Check out this heat check 3.  7-11 (6-9 3PTM) 24/4/1.  Multi-3s in four straight, and as they frequently mentioned on TNT, Brian Shaw established everyone’s roles and the Nugs are clicking now.  Buying it a little bit, but certainly a prime ThrAGNOF streamer.

Evan Fournier – Any excuse to bring this graphic back!

The Fournier-Year-Old Virgin

7-13 for 19/4/1/1/0 in 18 minutes.  I was right to say keep your eye on him, but wrong to doubt the Nuggets!  As with Foye, after Shaw solidified his rotations, he’s had 5 straight usable games in deeper leagues.  Larry Drew, you could learn something!

Kenneth Faried – Sorry to keep hammering down the same point, but I don’t think it’s a coincidence the Manimal has had 5 straight good games after this Shaw-stability.  Worth owning in most leagues.

Reggie Jackson – Unfortunately, R Jax doesn’t think as highly of Manimal as I do.  Man, abusive!  Didn’t Faried see Kris Humphries get embarrassed last night?!  What’s with these two-handed block attempts?!  If only having a big play highlight helped his decent-but-could-use-more fantasy line of 13/4/5/2/0.  If you own Jackson and your opponent has Faried, I bequeath onto you an automatic win!

Serge Ibaka – 8/10/0/0/3 shooting 3-11 in just over 24 minutes.  Got benched late as it was a blowout.  Not worried.

Jeremy Lamb – Shot 1-12.  The one he made was a pretty nice floater though!

Ty Lawson – This is how we do in Denver, Jeremy!  6-15 [ok, so not that much better] (2-4 3PTM 2-2 FT) 16/7/14/3/0.  I feel like I’ve picked Lawson a ton of times over other PGs in comments.  This was a good night…

J.R. Smith – If you didn’t gather from that totally all-true open, got a DNP-CD.  Not surprising.  Welcome to the bench!  I love what Not Sportscenter NBA tweeted:

Not Sportscenter NBA Tweet

J.J. Redick – Returning tonight.  As I mentioned in the comments yesterday, I think he starts a little slow.  But worth an add in most 12-teamers if he’s still out there.

Happy weekend to you all Razzball Nation!  No Buy/Sell this week, so if you have any Buy/Sell questions, shoot below.  I hope everyone had a solid week 11 and be sure to root on my Panthers on Sunday!

    Is it time to simply drop Sullinger? Or is this a temporary benching due to a combination of technical fouls and semi injured wrist and poor fg%? Will humph be the guy going forward? Or is it loking like split time and hence neither worth owning? 12 team, 9 cat

    Also- George hill… Is it time to just dump him too? How can he play so many minutes and yield so little? Is granger going to steal his time?

    Love the articles. Thanks.

    – JJ

      JB Gilpin says:

      @JJ: 12 team with a solid squad I might hold, but if I had injuries or needed production now, he’s droppable. I think he is bad a few weeks, but gets back into the starting lineup. Yikes, yeah Hill is droppable. Sadly. Thanks for reading!

  2. Wutang says:
    (link)

    Hey JB, somehow in second place after a 9-0 on the first place team (I wish I could tell you how, but I guess there was injuries, and Thad young/LA exploded). Up 7-2 this week but not sure if my team is a real contender. Mind giving it a look?

    PG: Paul (inj), Collison, Oladipo
    SG: Ariza, Iguodala, Ellis, Hayward
    SF: Harris, T Young
    PF: P Gasol, Aldridge
    C: Al Jefferson, T Chandler

    Thanks! Trying to shop chandler, possibly Collison when Paul gets closer/I find another hot free agent hahah. Keep up the great work, been a daily reader for months now!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Wutang: Don’t sell yourself short, it’s because you murdered first place! I think your team is fine. You’ll have Paul for the playoffs, have some of his production now with Collison, Aldridge is playing like a first rounder. I would keep Colli until Paul is almost back like ya said, I’m fine shopping Chandler, not his biggest fan. Really appreciate it thanks for reading!

  3. Michael B says:
    (link)

    Do you think Manimal is the big to own in Denver now? Or are he and Hickson pretty much interchangeable? They both took 9 shots, but it seemed like Faried did get some offense run through him while Hickson’s was mostly off loose balls and rebounds. Own both and drop Blatche? I guess I should be asking why Faried got dropped after 21/13. Waiver priority probably won’t get him anyway.

    • Michael B says:
      (link)

      Also, the Felton assist comment is spot on. I’m not going to fault a guy for dishing to the hot hand, but that was as easy a 14 assist game as you’ll see.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Michael B: Felton – yeah it was crazy he had that many dimes. If I wasn’t following the box score while making highlights, I woulda said the stat keepers made a mistake haha. I think Manimal and Hickson are pretty interchangable. Love Faried a lot more in real life. BUt Hickson could easily go 21/13 and his role hasn’t changed after the shake-up. I’d rather both over Blatche

  4. Prodders says:

    Big trade in my league and I’d like the JB verdict. Which side do you prefer?

    KD, rainbOladipo, Wils Chandler, Amir Johnson for LBJ, Rubio, JV and Jimmy Butler.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Prodders: I’d rather LeBron side. I’m still a big Rubio sucker, JV sucker, and more on board with Butler now with Deng trade/other injuries/he seems healthy

      • Prodders says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Okay good cos that was my side, and totally agree with the above. Not been impressed by Chandler and always think Butler’s about to get rolling. Also, in my league KD and Dipo’s playoff schedules pretty much suck. Plus I had excess pts and 3s. Good good.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Prodders: I still like Chandler, but would rather Butler ROS. Good call on KD and RainbOladipo

    Have I took the time to tell you razzballers how much I love the Beard? Jb understands my beard infatuation. Anyways, I love my trim. Almost as much as my beard, and I’ll never fear it. You keep it untrimmed like an animal in the wild and it’ll repay you by giving you 36+ mins of its life. Some of the most unorthodox ball that you’ll ever witness but man…what a beautiful sight it is! OKC is definitely scared to see the beard come playoff time. Kendrick “Turtle” Perkins shuffles his disproportionate sized body to the side when the wildebeest drives the lane, fearing that he’ll be posterized, forever framed on some pre pubescent teenagers wall wearing a permanent stinkface after Getting his clam slammed by the bearded one. Will other teams follow suit thinking ” if only we grew a beard, maybe we would posess this superpower” Will other teams realize, without the Beard, his powers may possibly be diminished like kryptonite is to superman. Speaking of Superman, it’s weird that superman plays with the Beard and he can’t hit 50% of his FT? What’s up with that? So many unanswered questions until playoff time.

      @Jon: Beverley. Teague is signed fairly long-term I think, Beverley was getting PT now

    He lost 34 lbs in 72 hrs, his cashew vegan twinkie substitute oozed through his pores causing carmelo to lick his face after making the first FT of a 1&1 for the final 4th quarter push. You Nailed It! And I added a twist Hah! Nice write up, now apologize jinx! I need bacon legs healthy for at least 1 back to back. He’s paid back 000.26% of petro’s value!

    Hey y’alls! Would it be a good idea to trade my Kemba Walker and Tyson Chandler for Serge Ibaka? I need another big to complement Dwight Howard. Am I offering too much?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Sweeesh: Nah I like it! Ibaka is having a great year and has some offensive upside without Westbrook

  11. Corey says:

    Do u see the role of augustin increasing.? Does the role of Corey brewer decrease with budonger back? What about foye? Miller is coming back soon? How would u rank these 3. Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Corey: Yes. Plus Hinrich is injury prone. Ehh, maybe very little, but not too much on Brewer. Foye looked great last night, but is a ThrAGNOF. Miller I don’t think hurts him too much. Augustin/Brewer/Foye is my ranks. Any time!

  12. Shaft says:
    (link)

    What are we thinking about Brian Roberts now with the Jrue Holiday news? I just saw that in his 5 starts last year, he put up something like 12 pts / 10 asts / 3 boards / 1.5 treys / 1 stl.

    You like him over Marshall or Augustin?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shaft: Roberts is a good scorer but I highly doubt he gets half those dimes. I still like the other two over him for now.

  13. teeque says:
    (link)

    Hey there JB,

    I need some help with some new faces on my team. It doesn’t seem to be clicking right now for us. Would you drop Demarre Carrol, Sullinger, or Giannis for Chalmers (should I use a #4 waiver on him), James Johnson, Dunleavy, Shumpert, Middleton, Wes Johnson?

    • teeque says:
      (link)

      @teeque:

      Also in another league, would you rather pick up Augustin or Roberts for a PG?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @teeque: Sully for Chamlers i like. ehhh the rest seem like lateral moves and nothing too big, would indeed use your Waiver on Chalmers who was playing well

  14. Nikko says:
    (link)

    How do you feel about my Aldridge, Lee, and Derozan for his KD, Varajeo, and Lowry? Its a points league with no FG% or FT%. I have Millsap, Howard, Pekovic and Gortat as my big men. I have IT2, Shump, Holiday (injuried), Lawson, and Collison for my PG/SGs. I have Batum and Shump again for my SFs. I think Varajeo is a good steal because now that Bynum is out, he has been ballin’ on the Rebounds, which are worth 1.5 pts in my league.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nikko: I’m more looking at getting KD, which makes it a winner. Lowry is a sell-high for me, but I think that move is a slam dunk

    I have always liked Leandro Barbosa. He is now 31 and with a 10 day contract. What I like in my twenty team league is Barbosa is playing the Detroit Pistons Saturday night. Pistons Jennings can not play defense and fact most of the Pistons are terrible. Drummond gets in foul trouble because of help side defense and Drummond is terrible on man to man defense. He gives up base line way to much. Barbosa well be going to the line I expect a 18 pt 5 assist, steal and a block from Barbosa. I will be shocked if doesn’t come close to those numbers against the Pistons.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Interesting, I have too. Love how he can slash. Ehhh, seems a little steep though for a bench guy. 12 or 14/3 makes sense, but like him in the deep leagues. Just hope his knee holds up

    Now I lose jru Holliday!!!! Wtf man this is too cruel! Who’s his replacement?

      @matt: B Roberts/Evans

    • JB Gilpin

  18. Jake VZ says:
    (link)

    What’s up JB? Love reading your stuff every morning. Makes for good time when I’ bored in class haha. Keep up the good work! Ok so I have made a lot of moves throughout the year, and this is how my roster stands..

    PG- Wall, Rubio, Jackson
    SG- Irving, Redick
    SF- Butler, Miles
    PF- Love, Lee
    C- Cousins, Gasol, Varajaeo, Gortat, Valanciunas

    I think it’s a very solid roster despite of all the busts I drafted and traded away. So my question is should I look to make any more moves, or just hopefully roll with these guys to the promise land? Free Agents are Iguodala, JR, W Chandler, Bradley, McGee, Webster, Gallo, Stoudemire, Kanter, Carter. Anybody I should keep my eye on? Which guys do you think could have a big 2nd half impact? Thanks again!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jake VZ: Hah thanks man! Glad I’m helpin ya through class! Dude, very solid. Wall I had a first rounder is doing pretty well, Rubio 2nd rounder, Irving and Love playing like 1st rounders. Wow Iggy is available? Grab him for Miles. Chandler I like over Redick too, but a little murky given this recent injury. No one comes immediately to mind of who else to target, but def grab Iggy who has great 2nd half upside

  19. Kevin says:

    Reports saying Bledsoe out at least 6-8 weeks. Should I still be dropping for another PG/SG?

    For someone like Jordan crawford or DJA? I was too late on Brian Roberts!

    • Kevin says:
      (link)

      @Kevin: I guess the more important question is about holding onto good players. This is my first year doing fantasy sports and I don’t know if I should hold onto bledsoe because I know he’s a solid player. in your experience, when is it more appropriate to look for players to get you by on a weekly/NOW basis vs. stashing players in the long run for playoffs? please advise!

      • Tony says:
        (link)

        @Kevin: depends how deep your league is, benches, etc…..I just lost Horford, bledsoe, and Holliday within like 3 weeks.

        I dropped Bledsoe for Brian roberts today, Horford I let go immediatley, gotta move on…. if guys are back in a month OK, but 6-8 weeks for bledsoe and its a surgery on his knee? NO THANKS< in my eyes he's done for the year, contract year coming, he's not risking it to play for the suns….. hell they probably want him to sit so they can tank!

        How is Jordan Crawford available? pick him up…. DJ Aug should be rostered too, unless this is like an 8 teamer.

        • Corey says:
          (link)

          @Tony: I did the exact same thing. Dropped bled for Roberts. Also let go of Horford immediately

      • Kevin says:
        (link)

        @Tony: @JB Gilpin: Thanks for the words of wisdom guys. So I dropped bledsoe and picked up jordan crawford off the waivers. wooo.

        Kobe is free in my league. should I stash? i usually lose TOs anyways! the thing is, i don’t know who to drop since I feel like i’m in a somewhat good place. here’s my team:

        guards: kyle lowry, terrance ross, john wall, tyreke evans, oladipo, trey burke, jj reddick
        big men: dwight howard, anthony davis, robin lopez, valanciunas.

        who do you think i should drop for kobe? i was thinking valanciunas was expendable.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Kevin: I’m not as big on stashing Kobe as others, but Davis and Dwight stuff the big man stats so well that yeah I’m fine losing Lopez or Valanciunas

  20. R says:
    (link)

    Hey JB,
    Im thinking about dropping Danny Granger for JJ Redick, good idea?
    My team is hurting in the field goal/ft percentage department and looks like this:
    PG: Wall, Holiday, Burke, Calderon
    SG: Harden, Oladipo, Kobe
    SF: Jeff Green, Granger
    PF: Boozer, Amir Johnson
    C: Sanders, Miles Plumlee

    • R says:
      (link)

      Just kidding, Redick got scooped up, Felton, Hill, Wright, Meeks, Dunleavy, Bellinelli, Brewer, and James Johnson are the top free agents now. Same thing applies, rebounds and assists could be helpful too

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @R: I woulda liked that move for Redick… While not perfectly fitting your needs, I’d want Felton over Granger. Helps your dimes and his % won’t be awful. FG% I expect is closer to 42-43 the rest of the way.

      • R says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Would you drop Holiday for any of those free agents after the injury news since I already have Kobe injured or just hang onto him?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @R: Yea I’d drop Jrue for Felton. A little risky, but holding onto two hurt guys that long in shallower leagues really hurts ya

  21. Michael says:
    (link)

    Sup JB.

    B. Roberts or James Johnson? So I dropped James Johnson right before I heard news of Tony Allen and I sort of wish I just stuck with him. Anyways Now that Jrue is out I think I could drop Brewer for Roberts. Whats your advice.?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

Would be a big risk to drop jrue for someone off the wire but is this something I should indeed do? Eric Roberts, Gerald green, e Gordon, faried.. A bunch of sudden-starters are all out there.

    What’s up JB. I grabbed Dunleavy cause they said he would start after Deng left but I just saw that Enrich might get traded which Augustin would take his spot. Would you drop Dunleavy for Augustin??

    Injuries killin me now with Jrue out for a month… is it really worth dropping Marshall for Felton or should I wait a week? Marshall might solidify the job…

      @The Tristan Thompson Conundrum: Haha well done on the commenter name! Glad you made it. Felton I would grab. Even if Marshall keeps the job, when Kobe is back that’s a lot less touches and Nash could get a few minutes if he can play

    All things equal, who would you take off the wire bc there’s just so many quality choices…Henson, T Jones, Foye, Meeks, Gerald Green, Shump, Ross?

    • Prodders says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: Green or Henson in case they plug him back into big mins. T-Jones and Meeks good options too. Yes a fertile wire!

      • miles proudfoot says:
        (link)

        @Prodders: just found Felton on there as well. Man, it’s my first time playing a 10 team league. Way different than even 12 team in terms of talent on the wire.

        • Prodders says:
          (link)

          @miles proudfoot: I’m in a 10 team though and only Foye and Ross are available out of those. Are many teams active in your league do you know?

            @Prodders: He might be in a deeper rosters league.

            • miles proudfoot says:
              (link)

              @JB Gilpin: I think that’s part of it. Two out of the ten in this league aren’t paying much attention unfortunately. They’re carrying bird man and Bynum instead of some of those other guys. But still, big difference between 10 team and 12 to 14 teams. Thanks for all your help guys!

      @miles proudfoot: Man like them all. Can’t pick only one! Gun to my head, Meeks right now

    Would you trade Irving, Miles, and Lee for Lillard, Korver, and Dwight? No FT% in our league ( I’m sure you remember this by now, just reminding you )

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jake VZ: Haha, yes please remind me every time! I will easily forget at some point. It”s very close. Dwight is a good buy low even in a non FT% league right now. It’s so close I’m gonna pull the coin flip/take which side has players you like to watch/root for

    just when I am confident to drop joe Johnson for Tyreke evans, Johnson drops 24 pts in the first half with 4 3s and tyreke with zero points

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Michael Pan: Hah yeah I woulda made the same move. Can’t base a move on one half 🙂 I think Evans outdoes him over a few games and beyond

  29. Michael Pan says:

    Just when I am confident to drop Joe Johnson for Tyreke Evans he drops 24 pts in the first half while Tyeke has 0 . Johnson is really frustrating, I hope williams gets shipped

    I know this is a stupid question but I really don’t know that much about b-ball and could use some help…
    I have :
    Teague
    Henderson
    Knight
    Dunleavy
    Jones
    Noah
    Henson
    Gasol
    Redick
    Holiday
    Ross
    Valunciunas
    Durant

    Holiday just went down for a month and they say brian roberts is top 100 value at this point, so should I drop anybody and who should I drop for him…three bench spots for what it’s worth. Thank you for any help you can offer me.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Nomaspantalones: Ehhhh I don’t buy Roberts top 100. Not sure where you saw that, but I wouldn’t go that high. Dunleavy I would consider though. With Deng gone I think he’s a little overvalued, and I don’t value 3-point specialists that high, which is why we say ThrAGNOF (threes ain’t got no face). Roberts should be close to the same amount of 3s with better all-around stats

            @Nomaspantalones: Haha thanks so much man! Definitely a play off Grey’s theory, and I’ve played without keeping 3-point specialists all my life and just commandeered it…

    would you add Redick for Wilson Chandler? in a 10 team h2h league

      @Kenneth: Eh I don’t think I would

    10 team H2H 8 category with the following roster:

    Bigs: Anthony Davis, Cousins, Sandman, DeAndre, Favors
    Tweeners: Durant, Iggy, Hayward
    Littles: Monta, Beal, Lowry, Burke, Collison

    Do you think I should drop Collison to grab Reddick?

      @Mr. Ballistik: No I wouldn’t, love Collison while Paul is out

    Should I drop Jrue Holiday for Brian Roberts? I’m in 8th place on a 14-team daily H2H 9cat league (top 8 playoffs). I’m getting killed by all these injuries.

    Players
    S. Curry, K. Thompson, V. Oladipo, G. Davis, T. Harris, J.J. Redick, T. Gibson, J. Noah, K. Marshall, J. Green, J. Henson, R. Rondo, J. Holiday

    • Brian says:

      @Daniel Bryan: I did. Holiday out at least a month but I think he might be out longer. Fractures are scary

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Daniel Bryan: Yeah I might, is a little risky with so many playoff teams and he will surely get picked up though

    Meeks, Pierce, Iso Joe or E Gordon? Looking for prime scorer for a couple of stats across the board. Reke also going down may open the door for Gordon. Meeks’ numbers hav been solid but struggled today. The Brooklyn boys, particularly JJ, have been locked in – I like Pierce more but Johnson since deron’s injury has been nice. Interested to hear yor thoughts. Currently have Meeks, J Butler and Oladipo (both had bad runs today) as my flier spots
