Uggghhhhhhh.  I hate when the intro has to be about a bad injury, but alas, tis what tits with fantasy sports.  After playing pretty well against the Pacers last night (21/4/0/2/1 in 28 minutes), Rudy Gay went down in the third quarter and had to be carried off the court, with tests indicating he tore his Achilles.  He’s had issues with that Achilles in the past with a partial debridement, but it gave out at absolutely the worst time.  Yeah, maybe he didn’t handle wanting to get out of Sacramento the most gracefully (who WOULD want to play there?!), but at least he showed up, ya dig?!  Now he has to stick it out while rehabbing, this was going into a contract year… It just sucks.  I’ve never been the “biggest” Gay fan, but I’ll be rooting for his rehab and hopefully he can be vintage Gay a few more years on a new squad.

In the meantime, it opens up a ton of wing minutes in SAC.  Arron Afflalo of DNP-ville got 31 minutes last night, aided by Garrett Temple having to play backup PG because Ty Lawson is nursing a kankle.  A R Ron! went for 11/1/1/0/1 in his usual snoozefest line, with Temple going 9/4/3/0/0 with a trey.  Yikes.  Matt Barnes might move back into the starting 5, but he’s hit-or-miss, depending on how drunk he is at the night club.  Hey oh!  7/4/4 for Barnes in 20 minutes, and Ben McLemore only got 4 minutes this game.  It’s a real trainwreck without Gay, and I don’t see any sort of clear answer on this team to fill in the void.  So you’re likely looking elsewhere on the wire for Gay’s scoring, and hopefully you sold high after a red hot start through the first stretch of the season.  Get well soon, Rudy!  Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy basketball action:

Kyle Lowry Sheesh Craptors, you sit K-Low and then lose at the Sixers the next day?!  24/4/4/5/1 in a nice line though, with 3 treys.  But at the end, after getting swatted by Lord Covington and EMBIIIIIID, just flat out went into the fetal position to accept this loss.

Look out, bear attack!

DeMarre Carroll Ugh, injury city yesterday!  Scary moment when he took a knee to the head diving for the ball, but apparently he avoided a concussion and just has a sore neck.  Might miss a few games, but avoided anything too serious.

Joel EMBIIIIIIIIID – 26/9/2/1/2 for Joel Embiid, hitting 2 treys and 12-14 FT.  Got a lot of those late as the Raps tried a foul-fest to come back, and in between a few FT, Embiid was pumping up the crowd.  I love Embiid and that’s awesome and all, but is that kosher in the NBA?!

T.J. McConnell After a wrist injury cost him a game, quickly returned and played 29 minutes for 10/5/8/1/0 on a sexily efficient 4-6 FG, 2-2 FT, 1 TO.  Be sure he’s still Dapper on your roster or at least someone else’s in your league!  Needs to be owned – I needed this last sentence because the previous one made no sense.  Stream of consciousness editing!

JaMychal Green 15/12/1/1/0 with no TO on 6-7 shooting on a nice little bounce back after a rough streak.  He’s still kinda low-end, so there was likely a lot of J-Mike drops going on, just ask Obama. But I wouldn’t mind scooping him back up!

Chandler Parsons I hate my life.

Markieff Morris Barely cooled off a smidge, but still a pretty nice 17/12/2/1/1 line.  Just missed all 5 of his treys – if he bangs a couple of those, then it’s right with the current upswing!

Otto Porter 25/7/0/1/0 with no TO and an absurd 9-12 shooting with 6 treys.  OttoMatic from deep!  Nice win last night for the Wiz beating the Grizzlies, as they’re keeping this hot streak alive.

Al-Farouq Aminu Well, a rainbow line is a rainbow line!  7/7/2/2/2 on 2-7 shooting.  I guess it’s OK, but I think the D stats are a little overstated.  0 STL/5 BLK the previous 5 games.

Roy Hibbert – We’re finding that the Blazers are who to stream your bigs against, but apparent Cody Zeller (6/10/0/0/1) missed the memo!  Instead it was Ol’ Hibby, going 16/6/0/0/2 on 7-8 shooting in only 22 minutes.  Fresh off a DNP Monday, he was ready to deliver his shrimp cocktail this time!

Al Horford Yikes, what happened here?!  Well, multi-cat wise a 5/7/10/1/1 line with no TO is fine, but 2-14 shooting and the Celtics lost at HOME to the POPPYCOCKERS?!  What in the wide world of sports?!

Isaiah Thomas As usual, the smallest guy on the court carrying his team.  He’s the NBA’s Napoleon!  39/3/2/1/0 with 5 treys and he continues his ascent into a superstar.

Derrick Rose Well, at least he showed up!  But dayum, for a guy to be as out-of-touch as he is to be able to post 30/10/5/2/2 amidst all this Poppycock turbulence is pretty impressive.

Carmelo Anthony 13/4/3/0/1 in a snoozefest game for him.  Why does he want to stay in NY so bad?!  Must be Peter Luger’s or something, dat steak doe!

Kyle O’Quinn No joke, I had a dream last night where Kyle O’Quinn called me, and asked me to stop making fun of him.  I literally cannot make something that obscure up, my dreams are just so mundane and weird.  Why he would care about the opinion of a rag like this, I have no idea!  Got the start, but couldn’t even keep his KOQ going for 10 minutes for only 2/1/1/0/0.  Instead it was smallball and a nice helping of Willy Hernangomez off the bench, who went insane for 17/11/1/0/0 on 8-13 shooting in 20 minutes.  Whenever Joakim Noah is out (kankle last night), the Poppycockers are going to throw KOQs and Willies at you!  I have way too much fun with this…

Ron Baker Got the start, and the doofy-haircut got 5 fouls in 11 minutes.  Doofus!

Serge Ibaka 5 blocks, for about the only interesting stat I could pull from the Magic last night.  Aaron Gordon was OK!  Which is a good middle ground between his awful and awesome games…  But yeah, I don’t have much here, just nice to see Iblocka coming back, after only 3 blocks in his previous 7 games.  Come in bunched!

Anthony Davis Another game, another exit to the locker room for something.  This time it was his hand, where he got some X-rays but came back to the game.  21/14/4/0/1 as the battered Brow (sounds like an awful carnival food) hopefully keeps surviving…

Jrue Holiday You’re my boy, rainbow-Jrue!  12/2/5/5/2 with a couple of treys.  In only 26 minutes too!  Man, the Magic were awful…

Tyreke Evans Reke also got into the mix, going 18/4/5/3/0 with 4 treys in 20 minutes.  I’ve been a little anti-Reke since remembering what Theon Greyjoy used to do, but this is 3 really good games outta the last 4.  I still think the minutes are a bit of a problem though, even if he can stuff it with the second unit.

Thabo Sefolosha Weird game for the Hawks.  Utter dismemberment.  Got their wings clipped…  0/1/0/0/0 in 12 minutes, Buzz’s girlfriend, WOOF!  Or I guess since this is the Hawks, Buzz’s girlfriend, CAWWWWWW!

Dwight Howard Whoa, look at these mad efficient percents!!!!  Can’t be stopped!!!!  1-1 FG, 2-2 FT in 21 minutes.  4/3/4/0/3.  Hah.

Dennis Schroder At least Schrodes was OK, so we don’t have to worry about Malcolm Delaney continuing to cut into his role.  Had das line of 13/0/6/0/0 on 5-11 shooting.  It’s pretty awful, but for as bad as the Hawks looked (down 42-18 after the first quarter), Schroder and Paul Millsap looked like the only guys to show up.

Reggie Bullock No KCP, no problem!  Something I could never do, quit my KCP cold turkey.  I need to taper off!  15/6/4/1/0 with 2 treys as he’s helping fill in the void.

Reggie JacksonReally all your starting Pistons had nice games, with R-Jax going for 26/5/4 on 10-20 shooting with 2 treys.  I didn’t catch much of this game, so maybe while Schroder’s line was decent for fantasy, his lack of defense was apparent on this one…

Stanley Johnson Seeing a boost of minutes, but Bullock still played 36 at SG, so maybe when KCP is back, Stanley Goodspeed will continue to see THE ROCK!  7/4/3/3/0.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Greeky was freaky, but stopped being so freaky late!  I think he had 30 by the early 3rd quarter, but ended up with “only” 32 points.  32/11/6/1/3 in another epic line for 17-18’s #1 player 🙂

Malcolm Brogdon Dream matchup against the Rox, and I guess does OK with his popcorn stats of 7/8/8/1/0, but only 3-12 shooting, 3 TO…  About the only nice thing is seeing Matthew Dellavedova only get 17 minutes.

Michael Beasley Turning into a true American hero!  Which is, of course, because he’s on my REL team and suddenly taking off!  14/8/2/0/2 in 24 minutes with 2 treys.  Playing a lot of pivotal minutes, led the bench in minutes, and when the Bucks wanna go small, they can keep both John Henson and Greg Monroe on the bench and play Beasley/Giannis/Jabari up front.  Did it for a stretch last night!

Eric Gordon Nice bounce back off a dreadful shooting night against Miami on Tuesday, for 25/4/0/0/0 with 7 treys on 9-20 shooting.  Ups and downs of an elite ThrAGNOF!

Montrezl Harrell Whoa, 27 minutes?!  Clint Capela was brought off the bench this time for only 11 minutes (5/3/0/0/2 – but nice to see him playing a back-to-back already) and Nene only got 10 minutes.  Although since the Bucks went smaller, it makes sense Harrell got a little more run.  He was great too, as usual when he gets PT!  12/8/4/0/5, but these 3 are likely to cannibalize each other just enough to be a headache.  Well, Nene isn’t helping anyone…

James Harden Yeah, will be a nice debate vs. Giannis for #1 ranked next year…

Kevin Durant …is like, “what about meeeeeee for #1 next year!?”  40/12/4/0/3, with just a stupid 13-16 FG, 5-7 3PTM, 9-10 FT.  Only 2 TO and just took it to his former Thunder.

Russell Westbrook Got all sorts of combo stats!  Rainbow line!  Tripdub!  TO quaddub!  Rack em, rack em, rack em!  27/15/13/2/2 with 10 TO.  Still mind-bogglingly taking too many treys, shooting 1-6 from downtown.  Drive every friggin’ time, and keep racking up the FT (10-11 last night)!  Rack em, rack em, RACK EMMMMMM!

Didn’t take too kindly to the Slim Reaper owning this game though, on that dunk!

Victor Oladipo Nice bounce back after an awful night, going 20/3/2/4/1 with 4 treys.  One swat away from another RainbOladipo!

Enes Kanter Continues to play mad strong off the bench, even with Steven Adams still out (concussion).  22/9/1/1/0 on 11-18 FG, but with 3 TO and the lack of D stats, continues to be one of the better real life contributors than fantasy sources.

DeMarcus Cousins He’s gonna get his with or without Gay, going 25/12/10/1/3 for his first career tripdub last night.  Alas, still in a losing effort, despite a 35-21 4th quarter rallying without Rudy.

Darren Collison Pretty nice impression here with big minutes sans-Lawson, going 11/2/9/4/0 on 4-8 shooting without a TO.  That TO-vortex around Boogie helped suck his TO away!

Jeff Teague Fitting the Pacers system nicely!  22/7/11/2/0 on a crazy efficient 5-6 FG, 11-11 FT.  I thought Colly was supposed to be a good defender!  Stop hacking Jeff!

Al Jefferson Big Al going big in small minutes!  17 minutes for 20/3/1.  It’s been 11 days since he last topped 10 minutes.  Get the big spark plug going, he’s got a big enough bed to rest up in between games!

 

Whew, big night of action!  Hopefully your fantasy squad had a big chunk of the stats flying around, and be sure and drop by the comments through the weekend!  I’ll catch you again Monday morning!

    Hey JB,

    Standard 9 Cat, 12 team, H2H league

    I have just been offered Crowder and Gallinari for my Batum and Kanter.

    My Roster:
    G: Isaiah Thomas, Bledsoe, Batum, G Harris
    F: Kawhi, Parsons, Ilyasova, Aminu
    C: Anthony Davis, Kanter, Cody Zeller, Taj Gibson, Olynyk
    IL: J Lin

    What are your thoughts? I am currently top 72-36, next guy is 8.5 Games behind.
    OKC have a bad playoff schedule 3/3/3, but I feel I have a good balance in my team.

    Thanks,

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shahed: Yeah i like your balance as well, it’s a really close offer. You lose some AST and REB and maybe a little FG% and gain… a few more steals and 3s? Those both look like good cats for you right now. It’s a close offer, but yeah, I don’t think it improves your particular squad, I’d pass.

    Do you think The Brow has his own MRI machine?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Matt M.: Haha he should! Either that, or the Pels medical staff has one in their locker room, along with some good painkillers haha

  3. Steve D. says:
    (link)

    Thinking of dropping D Wade or Vucevic for Jae Crowder in my 10 team redraft. Thoughts? Here is my current roster:

    PG Goran Dragic, Mia
    SG Bradley Beal, Wsh
    SF Trevor Ariza, Hou
    PF Paul Millsap, Atl
    C Hassan Whiteside, Mia
    G Zach LaVine, Min
    F Jabari Parker, Mil
    UTIL Dennis Schroder, Atl
    UTIL Serge Ibaka, Orl
    UTIL Dwyane Wade, Chi

    Bench Chris Paul*, LAC PG
    Bench Andre Drummond, Det C
    Bench Nikola Vucevic, Orl C

    I actually just dropped Crowder for Millsap (I don’t ask questions – but thankfully I had saved my waiver spot), but now I’m a little heavy on bigs. I cut Crowder because he’s in a similar mold to Ariza, but I’d like to have him back on my roster if I can.

    Someone also dropped George Hill, who might interest me as a Paul replacement, but again, who to drop…

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steve D.: Hah wow, wayyyyy too many good players avail, even for a 10er haha. Do you not have IL spots? In a league this shallow with this much talent on the wire, I would 100% drop Paul. So yeah, I think you can lose Wade for Crowder then lose Paul for Hill

  4. miles proudfoot says:
    (link)

    A dream about KOQ. Well, I’m no psychologist…

    In a league with an IL spot, what do you think of my Lowry, Dieng, Holiday/Elfrid for his Paul, Whiteside, Plumlee. Only 7 cat, no percents and punting 3s. Id pick up TJ McConnell, Felton etc , perhaps eventually Simmons , until Paul comes back.

    In a league without an IL, Collison for Paul a sufficient lowball for a team who may be struggling to make the playoffs?

    My only concern with all of this is that he has a 6-8 week timetable, playoffs are in about 6 weeks, so none of this may make sense.

    Thank you!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: In my defense, I think my phone did fully spell out “Kyle O’Quinn”. Then again, why would he be on my caller ID?! He’s not saved in my phone like Nick Van Exel!

      I think I like the Collison lowball offer more. It’s reallllly risky to trade that much for Paul. That would assume he’s back by the timetable and immediately plays at his same level. Plus the added risk of Whitieside being shutdown. I’d try the Colly route first. Any time!

    Hello JB and thanks for the read,

    H2H – 10MAN – 9CAT league here.

    Heres my team :

    Paul, K.Walker, Rubio, Bradley, Crowder, Wiggins, Covington, T.Johnson, A.Rivers, Markieff, Porzingis, Gortat, Whiteside.

    Im really frustraded with the injuries man, very unlucky year for me. Paul, Zingis and Bradley have been killing me slowly for about one month now and it doesnt seem to end…

    Anyways, got to keep my head up and try my best to get to the playoffs so i need your always helpful advice. Im on the 5th place of my league currently but there are like 5 teams that are very close and fighting for the #3 and #4 playoff seeds.

    So, what do i do with CP3? Do i hold and hope that i get to the playoffs with him back or do i try to sell him for what i can get?
    I got an offer from the team leading the league, offering Fourneir for him and i turned it down (Thanks @Peter Kap: for the advice).
    He then came back with a new offer :

    My CP3 + Porzingis + Gortat for his Bledsoe + Ibaka + Tyreke Evans.
    What do you think of that, and if you think i should turn it down, can you think of any counter offers? Maybe try CP3 + Gortat for his Bledsoe or his Myles Turner?

    Sorry for the wall of text man, but i really value your advice very much and you have always been very helpful so far. I really am in a very tough spot right now.

    Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

    P.S. Hopefully i get Slims advice too 🙂

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tenethor: Hey man, thank YOU for reading! 🙂 Ugh yeah that’s a rough deal, luckily only paul seems to be the long one.

      Yeah I would turn down Fournier too… Yeah I’m not loving that original offer, def good trying for Bledsoe or Turner though in those offers. I would start there. I think you gotta try and trade him as hard as you can, even if it means trading him to the #1 or #2 teams and helping them in the playoffs.

      Not a wall at all! Any time!

    Did you see Russ forget to dribble on that play last night? Caught inbounds pass, and was just walking with the ball for legit 6 steps without dribbling(while directing traffic downcourt.). Puzzling scene, funny.

    • Ryan says:
      (link)

      @Don Majikowski: The greatest part of it was his total confusion after the call was made. He couldn’t believe what he had done. Oh and Curry losing his shit. He stepped away from the play before the call was made and was like “bruh, are you seeing this?” Classic.

      I’ll keep an eye out for this play on Shaqtin. The competition for Shaqtin MVP is fierce this year.

  7. BILL BLAST says:
    (link)

    There is usually a difference making Big Man that surfaces on the wire around this time of the year (Whiteside. Gobert, Larry Sanders)

    Anyone you can think of that might fit the mold this year in deep leagues ?

    ZuBlocka ? Just maybe.. ? Seems his coach & teammates are really behind him in LA.

    My style is more quick trigger finger rather than giving him another game / wait and see.

    Dropped Hield for him.. hope I don’t regret it.

    2 years ago I was the guy that scooped Whiteside AND Gobert off the wire & coasted to the finals… so I always have hope!

    #Razz4Life

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @BILL BLAST: Hah Larry Sanders! Blast from the past. Zubac, yessir! I was huge on him coming into the year, and looks like they’re giving him a shot. I usually am a little more timid, but I added him in a few leagues as well. Other ideas… Justin Hamilton if Brolo traded. Willie Reed if Hassan hurt. If Knicks go full tank, W Hernangomez. AJ Hammons on the Mavs. So some other ideas there. Razz 4 life mayne!

  8. phil says:
    (link)

    Which players on my team are a waste of time and I should drop?
    Brogdon, Hardaway jr, Gallinari, Harkless, Parsons, Belinelli, Allen, Bazemore, Olynyk, Crowder.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @phil: Ummm, well each contribute something… I’d say Belli, Allen, Hardaway could all be dropped for stats of need, in that order.

  9. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    For f’s sake, our waivers just ran and I wasn’t able to get a player. Someone else got Baze for $6, and Felton for $5. Arghh I’m kinda sad I didn’t get Baze and now our wire is bone dry. Though Jrich is still there, when is he coming back again? I’m looking forward to reuniting with him! But I still need to add someone on Saturday for my next week’s match. So regardless of the schedule next week, who do you think I should place a bid on:
    Barea
    JIngles
    TJones
    RHJ
    Tucker

    Jesus Christ, this is seriously the best our wire could do. Haha You have other players I might have missed? Not really looking for long term value, I’m saving this vacant spot exclusively for mah boy JRich. Hah

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Hah, hate when that happens. Well, at least you have more FAAB tucked away tho! JRich has a “matter of weeks” as of a little bit ago. I wouldn’t invest there.

      Ummm, Tjones is prob my fav for the upside and Brow getting battered every game right now. Well, Zubac is a hot name right now. He’s kinda more long term tho…

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Hah yea, was able to least save $$$. I think more than half of my league has below $50 now

        I’d give Zubac a hard look, but I don’t mind scooping Tjones. He’s been bringing in the swats, I need those. Hah Thanks bud

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Should we consider scooping David Lee now?

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        One last thing bud, your thoughts on Middleton? Should I drop Lin for him? Or nah?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Dante Green: Mehhh, probably passing on Lee, it’s a vet usually bench guy who might play OK… Bleh. Middleton, is Lin on your IL? If not then I would probably say neither and be streaming active guys, but I wouldn’t mind swapping Lin if IL stashing out for K Midd

          • Dante Green says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin:

            Yea, Lin is on my IR and I have a vacant active roster spot so I will not need to drop any warm bodies. Hah

            (link)

            @JB Gilpin:

            You read the news about Nurkic bud? It seems like Den are looking to move him prior to the trade deadline which means he could really be traded anytime soon, should I pick him up tomorrow? Or nah???

          • Dante Green says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin:

            ORRR how about Levert? Man I apologize for flooding you with all these questions hah

              (link)

              @Dante Green: Flood away man, any time! Yeah interesting that it leaked he’s def moving, we’ll see if it’s true tho. Mehhhhh I wouldn’t be adding him yet, or LeVert. nice upside, but tough to stash and gauge for me still

    12 team dynasty, 20 man rosters and 1200 starts needed per year (so, super deep).

    Sent out Chris Paul and Ariza, along with two drafts picks (likely 10th-12th the next 2 years) for curry and felton in dynasty league. Reasonable? Did I overpay?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Joe: Damn, love the deep leagues, awesome! Paul was already getting older, I love the deal without the picks obviously. So those are both first round picks, right? Next year gonna have a lotttt of talent. But if you’re in the running this year, I love the deal to go for it. If you coulda swung those picks for 2018 and 19, I woulda been more on board

      • Joe says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Certainly tried, but when other owner had an about face overnight, I had to pony up an additional first. Currently in a close race for 2nd, but Curry may get me what i need (points), and I am way ahead on steals, negating some of the Ariza loss this year.

          @Joe: Damn that sucks. But yea sounds like you’re right in it, as the fantasy dynasty cliche always goes, banners fly forwever! Im good with it with you that close

    Chandler Parsons…… -__-
    I picked him up mid Dec and hoping he will get better. It’s getting to that “I hate my life” level keeping him on the roster. It’s like a crazy but hot girl that gives you a chance but not give it to you. I cant admit it’s a mistake at first place, and not willing to let go. 14×12 league so not too many good FA. Should I keep waiting and hoping? Until when? All-Star break? Or just cut that beeatch?
    Thanks. You guys are the best.

      JB Gilpin says:

      @wubeone: Hah, yeah you and me both my man. It’s getting to the end of what was a long leash. I think you let the crazy hot girl keep simmering for a little bit. I am doing the same in RCLs 12 team leagues, 13 roster spots, so a little shallower. Just hope she gets depressed over someone else or another break up and comes crawling back to us for that rebound!

  12. Zinger says:
    (link)

    Only got one move left this week, should I pick up Ingles or try to put in some FaaB to claim Waiters off the wire? Sergio or Sefolosha will likely be the drop

    Here’s the rest of my team:
    Harden, Porzingis(inj), Kemba, Horford, Dipo, G Hill, Hood(inj), Taj, Sefolosha, Sergio, G Harris(inj), Barea, Austin Rivers, Lou Will

    I know I have a lot of PGs….

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Zinger: Yeah you’re prob doing good in PG stats, so Sergio can go, and I bet you’re usually bad in FG%. I would put $1 or 2 FAAB on Waiters

    Hey JB,
    What do you think of a trade between Jeff Teague and Otto porter?
    I’m giving up Teague for Porter.
    It’s a 16 team league and my roster consist of..
    Kemba Walker
    Anthony Davis
    Thabo Sefalosha
    Marcin Gortat
    Matthew Delly
    Marcus Morris
    Montrezl Harrell
    Terrence Jones
    Gorgui Dieng
    Marquese Chriss
    Elfrid Payton
    Caris Levert
    and KCP in IL spot.
    I definitely like Otto Porter because of his breakout games and the 3s which I really need but I’m also giving up a potential and sometimes double digits assist performance from Teague, should I take it?

      @Trailcity: Mannnnnn. In a vacuum, ehhh it’s still close in a vacuum. I think you need the dimes. Only have Elfrid and Kemba there, with a smattering from other places. I think I would hold, especially since you look pretty decent with a low TO rate too, so Teague’s TO aren’t killin ya

    JB!

    currently 4th in a 10 team 9 cat h2h league. not sure what to do with the backend up my roster… would appreciate your thoughts.

    G: Lowry, Curry, Lin, G. Harris
    F: Griffin, Baze, THJ, KCP, Covington, Batum
    C: JV, Dieng, Drummond, Monroe, Gibson

    Recently whiffed on McConnell, James Johnson, Capela and wanna make some moves with all the injuries. unsure about THJ and Baze and down assists past few matchups.

    Was thinking could stream by dropping THJ or Baze? some intriguing guys on the wire… JaMychGreen, Felton, Levert, Barnes, Harrell, Aminu, Sefolosha

    What do you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @DT: Yo! Oh yeah, with Lowry and Curry et all, I don’t think you need 3s. Def dropping THJ. Bze I’d keep around. Too many injured guys, I think I would lose Lin if not on an IL spot. Def would add Felton. And probably adding…J Mike I think with the other spot?

  15. JJ says:
    (link)

    Would you rather take a shot and roster:

    LeVert, Zubac, Middleton, Ben Simmons , or Saric?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @JJ: Kinda depends, are you needing stats now, or stashig for playoffs? if stashing and can afford to burn a spot, I like getting Middleton. if needing some stats now as a flier, gimme Zublock!

    Hey guys, I already posted this question but I don’t see it on here, so I’ll do it again

    Which sides are you taking in a 10 team standard 9 cat?

    Pau and Wes or Vuc?

    Pau and Barton or Vuc?

    Barton or Wes?

    I have Pau and the vooch owner wants to do the Wes trade, but I think I can talk him into doing Barton instead. Whacha think?

    Sorry if I already posted this and thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Threekola: Spam filter got ya, sorry man! Spam filter has been going crazy lately, sorry about that!

      Gimme Vuc in both! Thennnn, I’ll lean Wes for the safety, but it’s close. I think I would take Wes in that deal, unless 3s aren’t really a need. Any time!

  17. miles proudfoot says:

    I’ve got a kind of open-ended question, so thank you in advance! I’m kinda stuck with two players which I may want to trade but hasn’t worked out so far. Wesley Matthews and Dangelo Russell, yahoo ranks around 80 and 120 for what it’s worth. Would like to increase fg%, points, assists and steals. Both are alright with points and Russell with assists, and I kinda think Russell will get better post ASB, but fg is poor and both have underperformed I think.

    Also different league, just looking for best ROS player. Do you see a drop for Markieff Morris off waivers: Collison, Thad Young, Capella, Reke

    Also to continue with the joke, watching the game on now and the Knicks KOQ just hit a Wall. Ouch.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: Agree, Russell still has a shot for a nice second half, no way I would be looking to move him at his value right now. So you own Morris and might drop him? I might consider Young for the steals, but man it’s tough to lose Kieff right now, I’d prob hold. if it’s the other way, I’d def lose probbbbb Colly? for Kieff? Hahaha, gotta look out for those Walls with a KOQ out there!

    Hey Guys.

    18teams h2h 9cat: Which Center should I target if I offer G.hill or Patbev? Also I scooped up zubac for mozzy. Need some blocks and reb. and the kid is getting more than mozzy for limited minute. Lastly, Is Jamba juice a hold til the trade deadline? Bigs are dried up in our league hoping a new scenery or faried trade would give him some fantasy relevance.

    Thank you.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TheBeardedOne: Def a little bit of a better center for Hill… Gortat? Then prob would get less for PBev. Yeah in an 18er, I think you gotta keep holding strong with the Jus

  19. Lasandro says:
    (link)

    EVERYONE’S injured! Assume that blks aren’t a need butObrds and efficient scoring are: Harrell, Capella or DLee in roto?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lasandro: Hah, brutal week for injuries! I blame Donald Trump. I think I’ll stick with Capela, but all 3 are close

    • Lasandro says:
      (link)

      @jb gilpin: you don’t think Lee is gonna get more PT than either of the two?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Lasandro: Mayyyyybe. But Capela if he gets to 25 mins again I would def take over 28 of Lee

  20. Shahed says:
    (link)

    Hey JB,

    Remember that big trade I did:
    Me receiving: Eric Bledsoe, Pau Gasol, DeMarcus Cousins, James Johnson and Rudy Gay
    Me trading away: John Wall, Marc Gasol, Bradley Beal, Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge

    Yeah, sucks to be me 🙁

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shahed: Ugggggghhhhh. Well, fixing FT a little and getting Cousins were the big takeaways, but yeah, that hurts. fantasy sports can drive ya bonkers sometimes. But we’ll be around to help ya through the rough times!

  21. Tino says:
    (link)

    JB, wassup wassup!

    How do you feel about trading. My love for al Horford in 12er 11cat (with OB and AT)?

    Also, I’m holding parsons barea and Len. It’s been very painful though I’m leading the league by 2 only. Should I drop them for Lucas, Oquinn, Matt Barnes or Danny green?

    Thanks for your advice

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tino: Whats good man?! Def would take Horford, i know Love has played fairly well, but the fear of late DNPs still haunts. Def would hold Parsons. Ummm, kinda depends on what points you need otherwise, if you need a big, I might take flier on O’Quinn over Barea. If you need some 3s, would totally be good losing Len for Green

  22. Shahed says:

    Yo JB,

    12 Team, Standard 9 CAT, ROTO,

    Have just traded away LeBron, K Love and James Johnson, for Anthony Davis and Draymond Green,

    Current Points: FG% 4, FT% 7, 3PTM 7, PTS 9, REB 11, AST 12, ST 10, BLK 6, TO 1

    Current Roster:
    G: Brogdon, Felton, Hardaway
    F: LeBron, K Love, Hayward, J Johnson, Harkless, Wilson Chandler, Parsons
    C: Marc Gasol, Tristan Thompson, Tyson Chandler
    IL: CP3

    Thoughts? Good Trade? And who should I pick up, some options: Bazemore, MCW, TJ McConnell, Seth Curry, Saric, David Lee, Danny Green, Zubac, Dedmon, Temple, Middleton, Waiters

    Thanks in advance.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shahed: Love that deal. Trade some CNP Cavs risk for some injury risk, but it all works out. Blocks gonna shoot up. Well, looks like you could mostly use an efficient scorer, which none of those guys really are hah. Leaning Lee or Zubac. I’m kinda nuts for him, but give that flier to Zubac!

      • Shahed says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:
        Thanks I’ll go with Zubac, also now with my blocks shooting up, what should I do with Harkless, drop him for any of those guys?
        Thanks again.

        • miles proudfoot says:

          @Shahed: whoa. Good f’in trade man.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Shahed: @miles proudfoot: Yeah Harkless can go IMO. Can nab Waiters if he’s still out there. Zubac had kinda a dud with 2 fouls and no more minutes last game, but getting right back into the rotation this afternoon, so at least that’s good to see!

  23. Hamtime says:
    (link)

    1. Picked up temple in a 16m given the gay injury. Already own wall, dangelo, and Schroeder. Would you trade Schroeder for klay, and do you see klay offering more value ros? 11cat and I’m pretty much a to punt team

    2. Pls rank – ingles Felton mkg zubac

    3.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hamtime: 1. Yeah I would probably do it, even though Schroder fits punt TO pretty well. I think Klay is more value. 2. Obviously some team needs come into play, but I’ll go Felton, MKG, Zuuuuubs, Ingles. 3. you are correct, there is no 3

    drop jamychal,aminu,harkless,middleton(stash) or jrich(stash) for tony allen, levert, temple, harrell, lawson? Locked for playoffs

    I have jrich and middleton in my IR but also have gary harris who just had INJ tag. I can keep them 3 since im sittin pretty at 1st.

      @Tyler: here’s my current lineup:

      C-Gobert,Horford,MylesTurner

      You think I need JMyke and Aminu’s boards?

        @Tyler: Kilpatrick was dropped and Levert is already gone. Should i make a change?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Tyler: Yeah def good holding your guys there… Ummmm, LeVert was the only interesting one really for me. Your boards look awesome, but I don’t see any upside from Allen/Temple/Harrell/Lawson so I would just hold – maybe something pretty comes down the road

    Hi JB, I already stashed Middleton in my only IR spot. Lin and Gasol just got dropped. Lin should come back earlier, Gasol is so so and Middleton has some unknown. What should I do? Thanks for the help.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Wen: I think I’d just keep stashing Middleton and let others have headaches of the other 2. We already think Gasol is gonna get rested before the playoffs anyway, and I don’t think coming off hand surgery will change that much

    Player rater has Poison Goose and PG13 close. I own Goose. Given the Achilles deal, I think doing that straight up is good for me, right?
    I anticipate him asking for a bit more…so could be Poison Goose and Smart or G Harris for PG 13. He hates Mudiay. So he can not be part of it. Thoughts? My roster in 12 teamer, h2h redraft, 9 cats.

    Lowry, RJax, Smart, Mudiay
    Leonard, Porter, Reke, Bogdan,
    KAT, Adams, Poison Goose, Horford, Jokic
    1 streamer spot
    IR: CP3

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Johnc: Given you have pretty good big man depth, I’m OK with that deal, but I wouldn’t give much more. Yeah with Smart it’s still fine, I like what Smart is doing, but he’s barely above the streaming class so I’d be good with that given this team build

    Hey JB,

    I wanted your advice on my team, standard 9 cat, 12 team, ROTO

    I am 4th.

    My points are: FG: 7, FT: 3, 3PTS: 10, PTS: 10, REB: 11, AST: 11, ST: 9, BLK: 7, TO:3

    My current roster is:
    G: Lillard, Bledsoe, Matthews, Beverley, Brogdon, LeVert
    F: Aldridge, Crowder, J Johnson, Wilson Chandler, Terrence Jones
    C: Henson, Zubac
    IL: J Lin

    Had Gay and Pau, both gone. Someone wants to trade with me.

    His roster is:
    Wall, DeRozan, Beal, Reggie Jackson, Tyreke, Lou Williams, Waiters, Ilyasova, Leuer, Cousins, Marc Gasol, DeAndre Jordan, Howard

    His points are: FG: 4, FT: 9, 3PTS: 9, PTS: 11, REB: 9, AST: 9, ST: 8, BLK: 11, TO:4

    Can you suggest some trades that would be fair. He wants more 3s, he wants Lillard, Bledsoe, Crowder, maybe Chandler, maybe Aldridge.

    Thanks as always.

        @JB Gilpin: need blks and these are my only other options in a 10team

      • Tyler says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: is biyombo a better own than rolo since im already punting Fts and they might trade vucevic?

          (link)

          @Tyler: Yeah I think I would take gamble on Biyombo as well, he’s not getting enough mins right now, but as you mention, that could change, and he’s off two hot games

      @JJ: *14 team, 9 cat. My bad, but while I’m at it, this is my squad:

      Parsons
      Miles
      Gobert
