It’s hard going into the fantasy playoffs without thinking of that cliche soundbit over and over…  I feel like the dude from Pi trying to write an open to this, the drill is plugged in!

But seriously, if you’re still reading at this point in the season, there’s a 95% chance you’re in the fantasy playoffs or in the running to win your Roto league.  The other 5% of you…  I love you.  Thanks for reading until the bitter end!

As with the advice you’ll see anywhere, now is the time to move on from anything that isn’t nailed down, no more stashing unless you have a bye, and it’s week-to-week, all-hands-on-deck (can-I-come-up-with-any-more-linked-together-phrases?!) here on out.  I’m all over the place with emotions right now, I can’t focus on a succinct open!  I shocked the world by winning the reg. season of the Slim vs. JB RCL, got another playoff berth in the REL, UNCW (my alma mater) is playing in-state rival and a buncha-crooks Duke, just had my first epic fantasy baseball draft…  There’s so much going on!  And with March Madness obviously cutting into our basketball time, don’t sleep on your fantasy hoops postseason and start partyin’ it up like James Harden when your season is on the line.  I don’t care about getting my 14 over 3 upset, I need to get to the semis!  So stay locked and loaded, don’t let the NCAA Cinderellas these first 2 rounds distract you, and let’s go out and bring home the bacon.  Here’s what went down over the weekend in fantasy hoops action, plus The 7 Ahead for Week 20 – the first week of the playoffs for standard H2H leagues:

Brandon Knight The Brandon Knight Rises!  Earl Watson said Knight would start when ready, well, WE READY!  WE REAAAADDDYYYY!  WE REAAADDDYYYY!  For y’all!  37 and a half minutes starting against the Warriors, and the Suns gave em a hell of a game.  30/6/7/1/1 for Knight on 11-20 shooting with 7 treys.  Knight stashers have legit doubled their confidence for the playoffs after that line…

Devin Booker Not to be forgotten with Knight back, The Book of Devin went 18/0/11 in the same game.  18 dimes is plenty enough for both to be viable!

Giannis Antetokounmpo Picked up his 4th tripdub in his last 11 games.  His numbers are off-the-charts awesome, but I found it ironic he also shot 4-11 FT in that game last night.  4-11 is awesome for a tripdub streak, not so good on freebie shooting, Mr. Alphabet!

Robert Covington Scary moment when Covington had to get carted off, but thankfully it ended up only being a neck strain and a concussion – could’ve been a lot worse.  He’s set to miss at least the next two games, so non-bye week teams have got to move on.  In the same game, Jerami Grant, after getting tangled with Lord Covington for that injury, took a hard fall himself and got a concussion.  I got really confused thinking I was recapping Eagles injuries…  Grant might be back by tomorrow, so if you’re using him for some swats in deepers, I might hold there.

Donald Sloan – After doing what any serviceable NBA vet can do – have a good game against the Sixers (14/9/9) – went back to being blah last night.  Philly still counts as a top-end matchup for streaming!

Courtney Lee Strung together some usability, but after back-to-back backend-12er worth games (so much back!), went… back… to being unownable in 12ers.  12/2/1 with 2 treys against the Rox Saturday night and is a low-end streamer only for shallowers.

Jae Crowder Nooooooo!  Boston Clam Crowder just got put on the shelf…  Picked up a kankle and it might cost the entirety of the fantasy playoffs.  I’m too depressed to labor on this any more.  Evan Turner could be OK.

Jared Sullinger – To quote Phoebe, “Back to happy!  Back to happy!”  Huge game against the Rox Friday night for a 24/12/4/4/2 rainbow line without a single TO.  No Crowder should help add that smidge more of usage his way too.

Michael Beasley Took 19 shots in 15 minutes, aka a Tuesday night for Amanda Bynes.  Well, that was actually Friday night for Beasley, then scored 15 in 15 on Saturday.  Deep leagues needing scoring could do worse.

Josh Richardson Huge game against the Bulls Friday night for 22/2/4/1/0, but even with Dwyane Wade out Saturday, disappeared against the Raps.  J Rich was J Poor.

Joe Johnson It was JJ who stole the show with no Wade, going 28/4/5 albeit in an OT loss.  I’ve been pretty anti iso-Joe, and that was still only his 2nd “must-own” kinda game for the Heat out of his 8 games since taking his talent to South Beach.  And even so, 4 TO, no D-stats, no D-Wade…  Meh.

Serge Ibaka Speaking of meh, Iblocka laid an Iturda on Friday night, fouling out in under 20 minutes for 0/2/0/1/1.  Bounced back a little on Saturday against the Spurs for 7/12/0/3/0, but still, a 3-17 FG shooting weekend from a key big with only 1 block…  Ouchie.

Matt Barnes – After I recommended him as a drop to several commenters for their final roster spot (hey, it was for good players, OK?!), goes tripdub Friday against the Pels for 26/11/10/2/0 with 0 TO in 44 OT-aided minutes.  Hit 4 treys as well.  Luckily he went back to being just another guy for 6/6/0/1/1 Saturday with 4 TO…  Pelicans are such a disgrace.

Lance Stephenson Speaking of Pelicans-as-a-disgrace, Stephenson went 33/7/4/2/1 in that OT-win, and just like Barnes, disappeared in the encore for 18/8/6/0/0.  Well, I guess that’s still usable and not really “disappearing”.  Went from full Paris Hilton to your run-of-the-mill nip slip…

Briante Weber Yikes.  Mike Conley went from garden variety sore Achilles (which he had earlier in the season as well and didn’t end up being a big deal), to out 3-4 weeks with tendinitis and they’re lumping his foot as part of it.  On one side I did slam Conley for wearing down too much in the pre-ranks and was vociferously low on him, on the other I told commenters to try and hold a few days ago…  Well, luckily you know now you can drop him…  Anyway, Weber is getting a boatload of minutes, but only 10/5/7/1/1 and 2/4/3/3/1 in a whopping 71+ minutes his first two games.  Ray McCallum is in the fold as well as another Grizz pickup, going 13/4/2/2/1 in 27 minutes at the Hawks.  Reviews on Weber haven’t been that strong, while McCallum (more experienced) looked a lot more comfortable. I’d add McCallum of the 2, but not going crazy for either.

Jrue Holiday Was on a near first-round streak for a while there (34/5/10 Friday night kept it going), but took a screeching halt at the Bucks Saturday for only 8/3/4/1/1 with 7 TO.  Like my wife sometimes says, “You’re suffocating, JB!”  Jerryd Bayless with that suffocating D!  17/4/4/2/1 for JB, and much rather have him than the Grizz mezz.

Shelvin Mack Another PG I’d still have over the Grizz mezz is the Mack Truck, who is finally settling into his groove in Utah.  Put up a career-high 27 Pts in a 27/3/4 line Friday then 14/5/8/2/0 last night.  Neato!

Elfrid Payton Whew, we’re just thanking the heavens he’s an NBA player and not a pitcher in Spring!  His elbow strain is getting better according to Mr. Shelfrid, but he said there’s still pain.  There’s no need for Orlando to push him either.  This is a tough one for playoff bound teams – I might try to hold until tomorrow and hope he plays, but it seems iffy.  And with no clarity there, there’s no reason to even care about C.J. Watson, who has been dreadful in the past 2 as a fill-in starter.

Robin Lopez Wait, what?!  He’s putting up crazy fantasy lines?!  I don’t believe it!  Is he secretly playing these games in the D-League??!!  Almost went Goro against the Clip on Friday night (DeAndre Jordan – you should be ashamed of yourself… ASHAMED!) for 20/19/2/1/1 then 16/8/2/0/2 against the Lakers late last night.  Rolo owners I guess should be a little excited for the playoffs, but he’s gonna lay a goose egg in there somewhere this week I’d bet….

Jeff Green The lesser of the “J Green”s out there (love me some JaMychal!) was off back-to-back nice games on Wednesday and Friday, only to completely fall off like he always does for a paltry 7/3/5/0/0 against the Cavs yesterday afternoon.  NOT super Green!

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope I finally watched Mad Max: Fury Road, and now every time I watch KCP, I spray my face with silver spray paint.  23/4/6/2/0 last time out – given it was against the Sixers – but was solid scoring 24 Pts against the Hornets on Friday as well.  Starting to get into some career-best play and I’m hoping it helps carry KCP owners in the playoffs.  WITNESS!

DeMar DeRozan Went nuts in a playoff atmosphere OT-win against the Heat Saturday for 38/10/7/2/1.  As the weather warms up outside, we’re seeing more and more double-Ds showin’ off!

Otto Porter After a really dreadful stretch, went 23/2/1/5/0 at the Nugs Saturday night.  I’m still worried about his hip, but he’s worth a look if he was dropped in your league.

D.J. Augustin In that same game, DJ got 31 minutes and vastly outplayed Emmanuel Mudiay (22 mins) for 17/2/10.  The Nugs actually blew out the Wiz, who could be this year’s most disappointing team.  I have no idea how they’re 30-35, and it seems like I’m always talking about how they’ve lost to a scrub squad…  DJ is right there with the Grizz mezz for me, tough to trust game-to-game.

Jusuf Nurkic The Jamba Jus is finally re-opening!  17/4/1/1/2 in that win over the Harry Potters, but still only 18 minutes.  And yet again we have to be scared, as he came up limping late after banging his knee.  Yeesh, big fellah just can’t stay healthy – it’s gonna be tough to rank him too high again next year.

Marreese Speights The Ace of Speights!  Haven’t been able to use THAT one in a while!  25/9/0/2/1 outta nowhere, hitting 10-14 FG in that win against the Suns that was actually a pretty close game.  This whole blurb was only written so I could write ACE OF SPEIGHTS! again.

Omri Casspi He’s been a main target of mine for bye-week playoff teams (OK, all of one of them), as he seemed like the best available playing next Monday.  My foresight was awarded with the foreskin-less Casspi, who went 20/3 with 4 treys yesterday.  L’claim him off waivers if you can!

The 7 Ahead

  • 5-game week: TOR
  • 4-game weeks: BOS, CHA, CHI, CLE, DAL, DEN, DET, GSW, HOU, LAC, MEM, NO, OKC, ORL, PHI, POR, SAC, UTA, WAS
  • 2-game week: LAL
  • Weekly League Streamers (by Y! ownership percent/games this week):  Cory Joseph (6%/5), Bismack Biyombo (12%/5), Wesley Johnson (7%/4), Shelvin Mack (17%/4)
  • Stream days: n/a

Overall Thoughts: Oh man, the pressure!  “What do you know, about PRESSURE!”  Me and my buddy used to quote that from Ace Ventura all the time…  “Laces out, Dan!”  It’s our most important 7 Ahead yet, as we stream our way through the quarterfinals and hope to push into the semis.

The overall scheduling is a little funky – lots of evenly spread nights of action with a peak of only 9 games on Monday and Saturday.  All eyes go to the Toronto Raptors though, who get a 5-game week to start the playoffs.  Two of my weekly plays are from our neighbors up North, and I considered Patrick Patterson as well, but I think Cojo and Bismack could have 2 big games as TOR has a pair of back-to-backs and they’ll likely limit some minutes for the starters.  Wesley Johnson has been a great glue guy for multi-cat and ends on a great matchup @NO to wrap the week, and the Mack Truck is off two nice games and seemed very under-owned to me.  Utah gets a matchup with the Suns in there, and just seemed like the best sub-20% owned player available.

Monday: We start the week with a pretty busy Monday, with 9 games on the slate to kick-off the playoffs.  CLE and UTA are coming in on b2bs from Sunday; be sure to check in on your Cavs as they didn’t rest anyone last night.  Heading INTO b2bs are DEN and TOR, really only worried about maybe a lost game from one of your Raps to start the week.  If you can make daily moves-today in your league, you gotta like the [email protected] matchup for some streaming upside in what is primed for a high-scoring affair.

Tuesday: 6 games on Tuesday, with BOS, LAC, ORL and SAC heading into b2bs.  I’m likely not dipping into the streaming pool in 4-moves-per-week RCLs quite yet, but with the schedule this spread out, it’s tough not to look at those Lakers playing the Kings.  I actually streamed Brandon Bass for one more game yesterday in an RCL, and PUMPED he gets a Kings matchup before I let him go again.  Marcelo Huertas could also be a widely-owned stream to consider.  If Donald Sloan is out there in your league, we get yet another matchup against the Sixers, so that’s a guy I’m targeting if feeling antsy on the waiver wire.

Wednesday: Usually our action-packed full schedule day, this time on Humpday we only have 9 games.  It’s going to be rare to have a full-schedule line-up on any one day this quarterfinals round.  ATL, CHA, CHI, MEM and WAS are your back-to-back teams, so if you feel like doing an early Wed/Thur stack, you could consider those squads.  Oh lord, just as bad as [email protected] is [email protected] for Wednesday.  Load up on your Pelicans and lordy, Norris Cole better be healthy!

Thursday: Eesh, 8 games on Thursday, and looks like I might have to skip my morning Friday pickup game to get through Thursday’s daily notes…  What is the NBA doing to me?!  PHI, PHO, POR, TOR (which sounds like something a fairy tale giant might say) all head into back-to-backs, so if any of the better players from those squads are available, I could see doing a little streaming there.  [email protected] is pretty boring, but the other big stream-against team gets a nice one: [email protected]  If Porter wasn’t so widely owned I’d call him a stream – I like him in that one.

Friday: Man, another night that’s usually packed with games is only an 8er…  16 teams in action, with CLE, DET, GSW, HOU and OKC on the back-to-backs.  3 teams have Sat/Sun stacks if you don’t want to use your final pickups for Fri/Sat stacks (more below), but none of those teams have very appealing stream options barring any early-week injuries.  Oh lord, [email protected]  KCP better score like 40 points in that one!  [email protected] should be a great streaming game to look at Friday.  I also would take a gander at some Blazers or Pels in [email protected]

Saturday: Man, it’s gonna be tough to not burn through all my allotted adds by the weekend, as there’s yet again a low-scheduled 9-game Saturday…  If you’re saving your final move or two, LAC, NY and UTA are your Sat/Sun stacks to maximize your final minutes.  Jeff Green – and as mentioned above – Wesley Johnson could both be options, and Jose Calderon has played decent lately and gets @WAS and the big kahuna, hosting SAC, to wrap up the weekend.  If Calderon is out there by the weekend in any of my RCLs, I’m definitely going there and hoping he doesn’t spontaneously combust.   Love those matchups for the Knicks, but there’s no one else that interesting to stream from their roster.  Another guy who I have in my weekly streams is the Mack Truck, who is far-and-away the best Sat/Sun stack option from the Jazz that is widely available.

Sunday: Wrapping up the week, we have a 6-game Sunday.  BOS, MIL, ORL, PHI and SAC head into b2bs crossing over until Monday, so monitor any banged up guys there.  As always, my eye immediately goes to that [email protected] matchup as mentioned above.  Clip go at the Pels, liking Wes J there, and [email protected] should be an interesting game to stream some guys in Green.  If Evan Turner was somehow available by then (50% owned right now), I would love him in that one.

 

The playoffs have arrived, Razzball Nation!  Big props by making it to the postseason, and if you’re a Roto player, sorry for all the playoff talk!  Although it’s the stretch run all the same!  Good luck to everyone in your fantasy playoffs, and be on the lookout for the Razzball Bracket Challenge coming out this afternoon.  Thanks again for dropping by, Razzball Nation!

    A Pi reference on March 14th, man, that’s why I come here!

    What do you think about Gasol? Last I checked he was Out, not Inj on Yahoo, so couldn’t move him to the IL. No bye, but gotta hold right?

    • miles proudfoot says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: also in a different league, Vuc was dropped, but I’ve got a bye, no IL spot. Would you pick him up for any of the following: clarkson, KCP, Wiggins, Dieng, Griffin (Inj). Thanks!

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @miles proudfoot: We’re such dorks… hehe. Happy Pi Day!

      I think I read that he’s going to be held out for 2 games. I don’t know what to do… Swelling in a knee of a 35 yr old 7-footer is scary. I guess I’d hold till Wednesday. If we have concrete news that he’s going to play then hold. If not… Shit I don’t know… ask again on Wednesday.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:

        @miles proudfoot: @Slim: Hah yeah I was happy the timing worked out for that one!

        Hah yeah I’m with Slim – hold until we know more and hopefully the swelling goes down and he’s OK.

        Mannnn. I might Vuc over Blake, he’s got another injury issue pushing him back.

        • miles proudfoot says:

          @JB Gilpin: griffins the smart choice. If im rolling the dice though and keep griffin, who’s the next one out?

            (link)

            @miles proudfoot: Eeeesh I can’t pick! I guess my addiction has to be the one out next, poor KCP…

  2. Slim

    Slim says:
    (link)

    I don’t know why you hate on Joe Johnson so much. I guess it’s your expectations. He’s not going to be a 25 yr old JJ. Once we accept that and just take him for the top 75ish player he’s been then he’s easily must own. 5 straight games of over .500 shooting with plenty of attempts. He’s missed 1 FT since joining the Heat. 2 3s per game. 15 PPG is solid. 3 boards from a wing is expected. 3 assists per and obviously climbing sans Wade. No one expected him to be a steals guy but he’s maintaining league average at about 1 per game. 2 TOs is by no means out of hand. And with that he’s top 60ish since joining the Heat.

    He’s been much better than KCP in the past 2 weeks (.370 FG%, 0.8 3s). Evan Turner (0.2 3s, 10 pts). Better than Reddick, JR Smith, Bazemore, Lavine. All guys that should be owned in 12ers.

    Who he is not though… is Gary Harris!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Slim: Top 75?!?!?! I think he’s barely a hold in 12ers, I’d rather stream the spot. 15 PPG is very skewed to me.

      I’d rather own all of those over Johnson. Well, not by much, but with a handful of those avail in some 12ers, I’d still rather have a stream spot. And yes, he is def no Harris!

  3. Joe says:
    (link)

    Current playoff team: Wall, Teague, A.Bradley, G.Harris, Redick, Middleton, Durant, Zingis, Gobert, Gorat. (Full disclosure: I dropped Clarkson for Harris because LAL has the worst playoff schedule and Clarkson was doing good but not great).

    I’m worried about Gobert. His usage rate is abysmal, his blocks are gone, and his FTs are in Drummon/Jordan territory. I can keep three players on my roster for next year, and I have plenty to pick from:
    Middleton: 1 more year, 10th round
    Gobert: 1 more year, 9th round
    A.Bradley: 2 more years, 11th, 10th rounds
    G.Harris: 2 more years, 11th, 10th rounds
    Zingis: 2 more years, 11th, 10th rounds (or 10th and 9th depending on others). I think it’s obvious Zingis is a keeper, regardless of what he does to me during playoffs.

    My point is, Gobert is raising enough questions that I’m not even sure he’d be one of my keepers. If he’s not going to be a keeper, then he’s approaching drop status. What should I do about him?

    Available FAs: W.Matthews, JaMychal Green, T.Thomson, Mahimi, Bogut

    • Joe says:
      (link)

      @Joe:

      (PS. I mentioned keepers because Gobert would be a value keeper. Any players I didn’t mention as potential keepers please ignore).

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Joe: Yeah it hasn’t been the season we hoped from Rudy, but I think you gotta hold. My 3 keepers are Zinger (#1 for sure), Middleton and Gobert. I still think his value in the 9th – and we hope he rests more in the offseason instead of complaining of fatigue after playing in FIBA – will be a value

  4. That's What Speed Do says:
    (link)

    AHHHHH COME ON! CROWDER AND COVINGTON GO DOWN?! Why do you do this to me fantasy gods…. whyyyyyyy…

    I put Crowder on my IR and grabbed Mudiay and his 4 game week to replace.

    No bye week in my league so I gotta cut Lord Covington. Barnes, Mirotic (WA Tuesday, I have #1 waiver), Tony Allen, and Bass are available to name a few… Any of these jump out at you? Or any other suggestions on other guys to look at?

    Thanks in advance mane.

    Also, here’s my squad as it stands now if you want to reference it. Points league.

    Walker, Hood, LeBron, Favors, Big Al, Rubio, Whiteside, Draymond, Clarkson, Covington, Gordon, Mudiay

    • That's What Speed Do says:

      @That’s What Speed Do: Side note: 4 teams made the playoffs, 2-week matchups, 6 acquisitions for each matchup.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @That’s What Speed Do: Yeahhhhh it’s a painful one for sure… Nice you were able to get Mudiay! Barnes probably sticks out the most. No glaring needs, so he’s a nice glue guy. Ummm, McCallum I’m big on to fill in in memphis but I dunno if you need a PG that much, I’d probably just save those moves until this weekend.

        • That's What Speed Do says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: Alright awesome, I’ll go with Barnes for now and stream later when needed. I’ll be keeping an eye on McCallum. Thanks!

              @JB Gilpin: Hey JB, update here. So JaMychal Green just got dropped in my league. I realize he’s had a couple bad games in a row but would you take him over Barnes ROS? I would be using my #1 waiver on him.

    Yo Slim & JB!

    Whats good? Do you like Livingston and Speights tonight vs NO? Or do you like JaMychal & Barnes @ HOU? I can make daily moves, but don’t you expect GS to let those guys run a fair amount tonight against the Pels?

    Thanks?

      @OldMilwaukeePounders: Whats up man?! Gimme the Memphis guys! Like them a lot more. Mehhh, thing with Warriors is they’re so deep it could be different reserves getting the main run/usage!

        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks, bro! Do you think Vinsanity is going to run tonight or is even worth playing? Could you see Livingston having more value than him at least? It is a pretty unattractive pool of players for tonight.

        One more quick one, what would your waiver priority be here: Dev Booker, Fournier?

        How is your REL squad looking, bruh?

          @OldMilwaukeePounders: Any time! Yeahhh I guess I would go Livingston. But not too far apart.

          O wpi;d rather have Booker ROS I think… Nice line next to Knight.

          well, pretty solid this week, lost Crowder but gained Knight. I actually have such deep a roster I woulda had to drop $1 Dwight Powell to activate Knight and I didn’t really want to… Still sucks to lose Crowder all the same…

            @JB Gilpin: I hear you man. I made the 4 seed in the Commenter’s Dynasty. I lost Vuc and had several other injuries that has be limping in to the playoffs…I still may be able to rally though.

    Bbm likes Darrell Arthur best for Tuesday stream… what you think of him over Bismack?

    Planning on starting Wiggins (@PHO) over Gary Harris (@MIA)… right call? Wiggins in it to win it I’m feeling third round value for the playoffs!

    I held Barnes over Conley a few days ago… your words are good guidance but not to be always taken literally… if only some bible thumpers in this county took that advice. Haha thanks!

      @Dom: Hah thanks man!

      Well JV just got hurt with a “hand contusion” that just happened, very easily could be another break. I like Bis still, might get a run of starts.

      Yeah gimme Wiggy there too!

      Hah yeah I just try to guide, I don’t try to push! Any time!

    In a 12 team h2h weekly don’t use TO cat. At utility play porzingus or bayless both 3 games. My team is best at the small cats and FG% is ok and 3’s are ok. Pretty good at blocks but he’s much better with Whiteside. I’m the underdog in the 1st round and I think my only chance of winning 5 cats out of 9 is trying to get those 3’s or FG, FM %% I should get him at RB, AST, Steals, it’s the others that are up in the air.

      @tentyme: Eesh it’s close, I think I’ll stick with porzingis though

    So I finished the regular season at the 11th spot, giving me the 5th pick next season! I’m not really interested in either Curry or KD, I mean if I don’t have them that’s fine with me, but I wish I got at least the 3rd pick coz I’d love to have Harden on my team! Lol. But I still love my 5th pick bcoz it still gives me a chance at landing Leonard, Wbrook or Adavis! And if my turn comes and these three are still available, I think I’m gonna have to take… Westbrook? Hah. Btw, what’s become of Gobert? RoLo’s been the better player as of late!!

      @Dante Green: Yeah Brow could easily be there! If not, Westbrook is quite a consolation, then you get a slightly better 2nd rounder. Hah yeah Gobert is def falling apart, I think the knee might be buggin him, he needs a healthy, low-key offseason

        @JB Gilpin:

        Davis as the 5th pick should be interesting! I know alot of his owners are pissed bcoz he’s often injured and isn’t the fantasy superstar they all exptected him to be when they drafted him first overall! Hah But it would really be awesome if I land him at no.5, no high expections whatsoever! The only problem will be his health, he’s missed games here and there this season but I can’t remember him missing like multiple weeks… And if I indeed land him, should we roll the dice on Poison Goose in the 2nd round?? Hah!

          @Dante Green: Yeah hell def have an ADP no higher than 5. Too many people getting burnt! Man, Brow plus Goose?! 14 feet and 200 total pounds of lanky hahaha. Ummmm, as long as a nice mix of PG or AST boost guys are available by the time you get to you’re 3rd, I wouldn’t hate it!

      @hamtime: Yo! Hah let’s bring this #1 down!

      Eesh. I’m not gonna recommend any hurt guy, so that’s leaving out everyone except Hollis and Afflalo. I’ll go hollis, bad last time out, but usable enough before that

      • hamtime says:

        @JB Gilpin: hollis was taken (as i suspected).. afflalo next best bet?
