Preseason popularity usually leads to a certain trend following drafts. Roster drops. The highly-touted buzz players who don’t pan out in the first few weeks of the season end up being on the waiver wire earlier than expected. This is when we pounce, Razzball Nation. Players like Cedi Osman, Jonathan Isaac, and Pascal Siakam have been dropped everywhere. Today I will focus on someone who likely is sitting on the wire in your league but should be added immediately. Mitchell Robinson. That’s right, if Robinson is available in your league, stop reading this and go pick him up. Oh, you’re not sure? Stop reading and go check your waiver wire. Yes, if he is there go ahead and pick him up. I will wait… Ok, you’re back. Now let me explain why.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The season has come. I started by feeling excited and anxious during the day on Tuesday, knowing that my favorite past time was about to start. The clock struck midnight (living in the UK I am five hours ahead of EST), my Astros were leading 4-0 in game 3 of the ALCS, life felt good, great in fact and then……………………………. BOOM!!
Quicker than you could say Georgios Papagiannis my whole world came crumbling down. Not only did I see my Astros blow a four-run lead, but simultaneously witnessed the potential career-ending injury of Gordon Hayward (of which I can gladly say, he is expected to make a full recovery).
Sport has it’s funny ways, and Tuesday provided one hell of an emotional roller-coaster. Wednesday was no different. Armed with some expensive gourmet shit (as Samuel L Jackson would say) and NBA.TV I felt like a kid on Christmas, not knowing which game to watch at any given time, attempting to watch four at once. Not well I might add.
So, to reestablish order, let’s take a few deep breaths and go back to my bread and butter, Dynasty Deep Dive style and take a look at next years top-heavy draft class.Please, blog, may I have some more?
