No, no, no, we never root for injuries.  It’s terrible fantasy karma.  But as one of the main cliches as fantasy lays out – injuries are the great equalizer.  They end campaigns and create opportunities.  Fortunately the torn ACL to Jarrett Jack isn’t going to end anyone’s campaign!  But the opportunity for Shane Larkin is monumental.

Last Saturday night, we saw the dreaded non-contact knee buckle from Jack against the Celtics, and we got the somber news yesterday afternoon that he has a torn ACL and meniscus.  “Wahhhhhh, I bet I never start a game again!”  Meh, the Wahhhh gag just seems too mean right now…  And if you listen to the Pod, you know I’m a Jack supporter and of course everyone in Razzball Nation wishes him a speedy recovery.  But with the starting job open, Larkin-the-Herald-Angels-Sing immediately steps in as the no-question starter.  While he’s looked mad impressive to me the few Nets games I’ve watched and he’s certainly a must-add, I’m not banking on top-50 value or anything.  His skill set should make him more valuable than Jack as the starter with more 3s and STL, but I imagine he’ll have fewer AST with the same bad TO.  Add Larkin everywhere, and if he starts absolutely gangbusters then sell high.  I also could see Donald Sloan having a bigger role than most envision – after that nice run he had in Indy to start last year, I was really impressed with him as a player.  Here’s what else went down over our first weekend of 2016, and The 7 Ahead for Week 11:

Stephen Curry I mentioned it on our last Pod, but if there was any question Steph isn’t the MVP, we squelched those questions again on Saturday!  The Warriors were up 21-2 against the Nugs, then Curry leaves with a shin bruise and the Nugs come all the way back to bring it to OT.  Can there be a “Super MVP” award?!  This shin contusion is minor, but even Curry has admitted the Warriors might be cautious and give him tonight off against the Hornets.  Maybe he can hop in and commentate with Dell.

Draymond Green Just plain ridiculous.  29/17/14/4/1 with 5 treys carrying the Curry slack in that W.  He puts the “W” in “GSW”!  #Occupy baby!

Will Barton Almost as equally ridiculous, as he was an afterthought to virtually everyone coming into the year.  But right when you thought you could trust him and he could co-exist with the return of Danilo Gallinari (Barton 21/13/7 on Saturday with Gallo putting up 24/6/2 as well), only 5/2/2 on 2-10 shooting last night.  I’m not reading too much into it other than it’s a dud, but keeping an eyebrow raised.

Jameer Nelson 20/8/7 and 17/4/7 over the weekend.  I know the Nugs are rebuilding and all-a-dat, but I wonder if they try and keep Nelson starting when Emmanuel Mudiay is back.  At the least they might be able to get a trade, unless he’s giving a solid mentorship behind the curtain.

Jusuf Nurkic The Jamba Jus is back!  After a 5 minute dud debut on Saturday, 12/8/0/0/1 in 15 minutes last night, although only 4-9 FT shooting.  The rotation/minutes are going to be really annoying, but I think he needs to be owned in 12ers.

Kenneth Faried Manimal took a rough fall on his neck, but the Denver vet was able to get the Manimal healthy right away and get him back on the court.

Arron Afflalo A-R-Ron!  Got NBA Jam on fire hitting his first 7 treys yesterday, scoring a season-high 38 Pts on a ridiculous 14-17 shooting with 7-8 3PTM.  He’s available in about half of Yahoo leagues, and while he’s still a little ThrAGNOFfish, I think he could be worth a spec add.

Robin Lopez The terrible Rolo might need to be in the fomo pickup class!  16/11/5/0/3 (although he has no business committing 5 TO!) last night, with a meh 4/6/2/0/2 on Friday sandwiching an awesome 11/7/2/1/6 breakout last Tuesday.  If you’ve been streaming bigs, it might be time to give Rolo a few games at C.

Jimmy Butler Maybe would’ve been the lead if I hadn’t shown initiative and already written the open by the time he went nuts!  Broke Michael Jordan’s record of Pts in a half by dropping 40 in the 2nd half for 42/4/5/1/1 on 15-23 shooting and 10-11 FT and leading the Bulls to a come from behind win.  Godzilla angry!

Bobby Portis Everyone’s favorite sexy-upsidey-uber-athletic-PF played 18 ho-hum minutes last night after a big Friday against the Knicks, going only 4/6/1/0/1 on Sunday.  10ers I think need to do better.  12ers he needs to be owned, as he’s at least doing something while being a high-ceiling stash.  I do worry that Joakim Noah is going to make it even more annoying though…

Otto Porter After 3 straight 20+ Pt games (with a huge multi-cat 20/11/3/4/1 against the Magic on Friday), only 6/6/3/1/0 last night.  The Porter was flat!

Zaza Pachulia Had faded a bit in mid-December, but 14+ Pts in 5 straight with 14/13/1/1/1 and 14/9/2/4/1 lines with over 50% shooting over the weekend.  Zaza shoulders!

J.J. Barea Mas frio!  After being muy caliente!  Was killing it from deep lately, until he was 1 for his last 8 the past two games.  At least he still chips in dimes for deep league owners, but if you streamed for some ThrAGNOF you can let him salsa his way back to the wire.

Hassan Whiteside The Mavs interior D is so so soft, with Hassan killing em for 25/19/0/0/1 on 12-16 FG last Friday.  Then 6/13/1/1/6 with no TO last night, although he did shoot only 3-9 with 0-2 FT.  Tough to complain about anything from Strong Side this year!  Remember the Hassan…

Dwyane Wade Came off the bench Friday while suffering flu-like symptoms (it’s crazy that athletes almost never catch the flu…  Just something “like” it!), but started Sunday.  Only 8/4/3/1/0 in 25 minutes, but it was a blowout and he didn’t need to do much.

Nerlens Noel I had to do a lot of fantasy-therapy for Noel owners, maintaining a hold status and hopefully my patients stayed patient.  Killing it as the starting center with Jahlil off the bench, tearing apart the soft interior Lakers for 15/12/3/3/3 1.5 rainbow on Friday.  Cooled off a little as the Clip dismantled the Sixers on Saturday, but 13/8/1/0/1 in only 22 minutes is still mad usable…

Jahlil Okafor …Okafor isn’t mad usable right now, he’s just making you mad!  The past three games – since coming off the bench -he’s been doing what I thought he’d do coming into the league: low blocks (1 in 3 games), horrible FT% (5-11), and bad TO (4 in 3 games.  Aight fine, that’s not that bad).  He did put up 23 off the bench Saturday, but it was a lot of junky junky scoring in a blowout loss.  You’re likely holding, but I might sell off the high-scoring game.

Ish Smith The Ish 2.0 giveth and the Ish 2.0 taketh away.  After 3 tantalizing games back in Philly, 9/4/3/0/0 and 4/1/10/1/0 over the weekend, with 5 TO and a team-killing 5-28 from the field.  One of these games was against the Lakers too!  He still needs to be owned in all leagues, but maybe he’s more Jarrett Jack than a top-50 PG.  “Wait, what did JB say?!  Wahhhhhhhh!”

Lou Williams Playing nuts right now, destroying the terrible Suns D for 30/7/4/2/0 last night after 24/5/4 against his former Sixers on Friday.  Sweet Lou has been a sweet pickup for me where I got him!  Although if anyone is buying for much, now is the time.  The Lakers will eventually go with their young G playing a ton of mins.

Larry Nance Jr. – Grabbing a bajillion REB.  15/14/0/1/0 and back-to-back 14 REB games.  I would make a Lance cracker joke here, but that could be taken soooooooo wrong…

T.J. Warren Got a few starts with P.J. Tucker at the other F start going uber-small, but they went back to Jon Leuer starting at the 4 last night.  It didn’t matter much, as the Suns got romped by the…  Lakers?  Eesh.  Suns are a dying star, to say the least!  Warren was awful off the bench (0 Pts in 21 mins), while Tucker maintained some usability going 5/8/0/1/0 with a trey in an otherwise awful game for all the Suns not named Brandon Knight.  Tucker is the guy I’d super want to own.

Devin Booker 21/1/3/4/0 on Friday trying to shake being a ThrAGNOF, but only 5-13 FG with 0-3 treys last night for 10/4/1/1/0.  I think he had way too high a rookie-nookie pickup phase, and is only a streamer in 12ers.

Marco Belinelli 28 then 19 Pts over the weekend.  It was pretty barren and very ThrAGNOFfy, but that’s why there’s ThrAGNOF!  Stream when hot!  Slippery when wet…

Darren Collison In that Suns meltdown (pun police!) giving up 142 regulation points to the Kings, 21/2/6 in 29 minutes.  I’ve always liked Collison and he’s playing so well that I have no question he would’ve been a monster value if Rajon Rondo hadn’t shown up.  I hate Rondo.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope I just need to get back to my KCP addiction to numb all the emotional trauma Rondo has caused!  16/10/1 against the Pacers, salvaging a 6-16 shooting night when hitting only 1-7 from deep.

Kevin Durant/Serge Ibaka – Both with 4 blocks (more surprising to Durant) and had 10 FTM (definitely more surprising for Ibaka!) against Charlotte on Saturday night.  The Hornets interior presence has just been terrible lately.

Frank Kaminsky Culprit #1!  Had been fine for fantasy for a 6 game stretch, but 6/6/2/0/0 on 2-11 FG and 2-4 FT with 2 TO against OKC last time out shows the downside.  And that was in a season high 33 minutes!  Frank the Stank!

Cody Zeller Culprit #2!  Also was on a nice stretch before the Thunder romped em and he had a bad one.  I think C-Zell is the guy to own between the two, but I guess if it was so close and you needed treys I could see going Stank.

Kemba Walker Only Hornet to show up against OKC, going 32/3/5/3/1 and continuing to have a breakout season.  Well, he’s always been pretty good, I guess it’s more “one small step for man” than a “Will Barton giant leap forward for mankind”.

Jeremy Lin Returned from his kankle for a big 15/1/4/1/1 game with a trey and no TO in 34 minutes.  No lingering kankle for Jeremy!  I think he should be owned in most leagues.

SKIIIIILES! – Arrrghghghghghhhhhhhh!  The Magic were getting creamed by the Cavs, but Skiles and his big white bald head waived the big white flag and benched everyone.  My Tobias Harris (22 mins) and Nikola Vucevic (13 mins) RCL team sure had a fun Saturday!  Even Victor Oladipo, who was off a nice game, got only 14 minutes and Skiles played scrubs.  Credit Rotoworld for their blurb saying Vuc could be in the Skiles doghouse.  I think the whole team is the Skiles doghouse.  SKIIIIIIILES!

Jerryd Bayless Back-to-back decent games as O.J. Mayo gets worked out of the rotation.  The Bucks and I have similar New Year’s resolutions.  Less Mayo.

Norris Cole – Power of the flat top!  Does he still have the flat top?  I’ve made it a point to boycott the Pelicans with their blatant disregard for player health as Gentry played everyone well past their minutes restrictions.  Three straight great games for N-King-Cole, culminating in his best of the season for 16/12/4/4/0 against the Mavs.  Did have 5 TO, but hard to complain.  I still think he’s well on the outside looking in for 12ers though.  But if you’re playing with an open roster spot, sure nab him and hope for the best.

Danny Green Better late than never!  18/4/3/3/1 with 6 treys Saturday night against the Rox.  Must-add?  Nah.  10ers I think you look the other way, in 12ers I think he’s worth scooping up if you’re not losing a solid piece.  Rather Green than Cole!

Boris Diaw – Had an odd “breakout” game alongside D Green as well for 20/8/2/2/0, but Diaw has actually been pretty usable over his last 7.  Tim Duncan on the other hand has not gotten enough slammage from me in the Daily Notes.  He’s been terrible or DNPible.  I might even drop Duncan for Diaw in deeper leagues… Either way, Duncan is out in 12ers.

Rodney Hood He’s just so Hood!  I’ve always wanted to make that joke, but it’s super Michael Scott from The Office…  32/8/0/1/1 against the Grizzlies, hitting 5 treys.  I’m glad I said Hood over Trey Burke as an add!  Even with Rodney Hood, Jr. born yesterday, it looks like Hood Sr. is playing tonight.  That’s so Hood!  Uggghhhhhh, sounds so bad…

Jeff Withey He’s still only a very short-term add while Derrick Favors‘ back is wonky, but damn if Withey isn’t proving us something…  12/10/2/1/4 on Saturday night, giving him 5-straight multi-block games with 4-straight games scoring in double figures.

Austin Rivers Philly garbage time alert!  26 Pts in junk time, and while he did have a 22-pt game against the Hornets a few ago, he’s otherwise been the garbage himself.  “Daddy, we’re winning big, let me play!”

 

The 7 Ahead

  • 5-game week: Utah Jazz
  • 4-game weeks: BOS, BKN, CHA, CLE, DAL, GSW, IND, LAL, MEM, MIA, MIL, MIN, NY, OKC, ORL, PHI, POR, SAC, TOR
  • 2-game week: Phoenix Suns
  • Weekly League Streamers (by Y! ownership percent/games this week): Trevor Booker (3%/5), Cody Zeller (29%/4), Raymond Felton (15%/4), Bismack Biyombo (29%/4)
  • Stream days: Tuesday, Thursday

Overall Thoughts: Ugh, we get another 5-game week, but it’s the Jazz with virtually no good streamers!  Hood and Burke are owned in too many leagues, but if they are out there for some reason, both are great scoops in weekly and really for any league while Alec Burks is out.  The only Jazz player deeper than that that I’m rolling out there is The Bookworm, who is assured a decent role for the 5 games.  If we knew Favors would be out, Withey could be a streamer too, but it seems like Favors is close to returning with the back spasms.

Lots of teams on 4-game weeks, so you should have a pretty nice set of players to set your weekly leagues.  I highly doubt you’re playing any Sun in weekly with only 2 games.  With the NFL regular season wrapped up, the NBA is coming on strong on Sunday, so I might do more streaming earlier in the week this time out.  The Hawks are the interesting team to monitor for your weekly-max daily moves.  They play on Tues/Thur/Sat, all 3 light-schedule nights.  I mention Shelvin Mack a lot – I’m adding him in a lot of RCLs for the off-schedule starts.

Monday: Week 11 starts strong, with 10 games and 2/3 of the league in action.  MIA, POR, and TOR come in on back-to-backs from yesterday, so be sure your vets are active.  Looking at you, D Wade!  GSW, MIL and SAC head into b2bs – maybe Harrison Barnes sits Tuesday as he’s probable tonight.

Tuesday: Only 4 games on Tuesday, so I could see using a stream move or two early this week with a fairly full weekend.  DAL & NY are you only teams on b2bs, but that could impact a lot of your Mav vets.  A big streamer of mine thus far has been Dennis Schroder, but he’s had two straight DNPs in favor of Shelvin Mack.  It’s super low end – and comes with risk as Coach Butthole could flip flop again – but maybe you give Mack a start.  At the time of this writing, Afflalo is only 48% owned which should go up after his explosion last night, but he could be available for a stream.  As mentioned above, Bayless has been playing decent in a low-end way.  I wouldn’t quickly assume [email protected] will be a bad blowout – Curry might sit that one too which could keep the score close.

Wednesday: As per usual, Wednesday is a full slate with only 8 teams off.  Only BOS and UTA head into b2bs, so keep an eye on your banged up guys there.  If Favors is back on the court, maybe he sits Wed or Thu.  Other than that – playing your regulars.

Thursday: With a full Fri/Sat/Sun, I might be using 2-3 of my 4 allotted RCL moves by Thursday this week.  Only the Lakers head into a back-to-back, which means it could be a DNP for you know who.  We’ve got [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected]  I actually could see adding Mack for Tuesday and holding until Thursday to get two light slate games.  There’s like 5 Sixers worth streaming if you have an open move and a lottery ticket-frame of mind, but I dunno how great you can feel about any of them.  Bobby Portis is likely owned in most active leagues for the upside, but maybe he’s available for a stream if he has another dud at the beginning of the week.  Kelly Olynyk is always a dart throw, but can produce a huge line in any game.  Marco Belinelli had a huge weekend as mentioned above, if he stays hot early this week, you gotta like him against the Lakers.  In daily moves, I love Trevor Booker against the Rockets who play big line-ups.  Terrence Jones has been so enigmatic this year that he could be available in your league – his upside could be worth a stream at the least.

Friday: Another night with 10 games and 2/3 of the league in action, with BKN, GSW, MIA, ORL, and TOR heading into b2bs.  It’s another full slate where you’re likely using your regulars and not relying on too much streaming.  Plus, it’s the weekend and who has time to groom their fantasy lineups when it’s Friday Happy Hour!?

Saturday: I always wake up Saturday and do a hungover fantasy line-up check in the morning…  We’ve got 7 games on Saturday, and with Sunday so full, I’m maximizing my moves before the NBA takes up Sundays with the NFL regular season in the books.  We’ve got CHA, LAC, PHI and UTA on back-to-backs, so four teams to possibly do a weekend stack.  But before you get giddy thinking you’ve made an efficient move, 18 teams are active on Sunday, so you could already have a full line-up on the final day of action.  Obviously we’re back to Booker as a weekend stack if he fits, and Zeller is a weekly play for me as well.  Zeller, Kaminsky, and Lin are all nice Sat/Sun stacks for the Hornets.  I doubt Austin Rivers can do that much, but he had a nice game this weekend and could be an option if daddy lets him play in garbage time.  Then those damn Sixers – Isaiah Canaan ThrAGNOF, Jerami Grant for some blocks, etc. etc. could all be streams.  The Sixers do get Toronto after they’ve played @WAS the night before – they might be a little exhausted after that blooming rivalry.  And then there’s yet another light schedule day for Mack, and your Hawks in general as mentioned above.

Sunday: Wow, one of the busier Sundays we’ve had this season ends with a 9-game slate.  Hopefully you can max out your line-up, especially if you nabbed some Sat/Sun stack guys.  No teams go into b2bs, as next Monday is only a 4-game slate.  PHI I think gives TOR a good game on Saturday, so once CLE gets in town, it should be blowout city.  [email protected] should have a ton of pace and be a lot of fun, and that 5-game week for Utah ends @LAL.  Should be a fun finale if you own any Jazz guys in weekly.

 

Good luck to everyone in week 11, and thanks for stopping by.  I hope everyone in Razzball Nation is ready to get back into the full work-week grind in 2016!

    Thought you got fired!

    I own Gobert and Favors. To only dream what my block, fg and rebounds would have been this week especially that Sunday against the lakers. Tho they are the new powerhouse of the west if you go by what Phoenix has to say on the matter.

    Zeller or Rolo or your boy Gordon for stream and potentially beyond??!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ankur: Hah I could see how that’s misleading! Ugh yeah those two injuries suck, such a nice tandem when healthy. Hmmmm that’s close. Rolo for blocks. Zeller for all around. With both avail I’m still streaming

    good stuff as always. in my deep 12 team league (17 roster spots) 10 cat (OREB), should I use my #3 waiver claim to pick up and stash big Al Jefferson? If he returns anything like his old self for the end of year/playoffs it could be worth it. I could shift him to my IR spot once Rudy Gobert returns. He clears waivers tomorrow should I wait and save the waiver and see if he’s available? I feel like there won’t be many opportunities to use a good waiver priority on a high caliber player in this league

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dom: Thanks man! Meh I just dunno what Big Al is gonna do down the stretch. But if that IL is soon to be open, I’m all for it. Just need Gobert back asap!

      • dom says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: thanks, I’m gonna think about it. Just wondering if he would make it through waivers or not.

        In my 9 cat, should I start Ish Smith (Min), Wiggins (@PHI), or newly acquired Shane Larkin (BOS)? I watched one of Smith’s good games and was impressed by how quick he is. basketballmonster has him ranked quite a bit lower than Larkin ROS though. If Larkin is actually a good PG then why did the knicks dump him? smh

        In this 9 cat 10 team league Rodney Hood and CJ Miles were both just dropped. Hood could be helpful this week, he clears waivers tomorrow and I may put in a claim. I don’t know much about Miles but projections seem to think he’s decent player. My droppable guys are PJ Tucker, Gorgui Dieng, and perhaps one of Ish/Larkin if they play poorly. Any thoughts on this? Thanks

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @dom: Yeah with him being so old and wearing down, I err to the side of the longer end of his timetable. Yeah not surprised Ish is low on BBM due to %s and TO. I think Wiggins is the guy in a vacuum due to matchup.

          Def getting Hood for Tucker! Surprised Hood was dropped…

          • dom says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: what about Matt Barnes, he was a multicat beast for a couple weeks before the suspension. Would you take Hood over Barnes?

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @dom: Eesh that is pretty close. I think I’ll narrowly lean Hood, but if scoring/3s/ast aren’t needs, I’d go Barnes

                Would you go Barnes over Zeller? I’m solid in points and boards so I’m thinking about it.

    1. Duncan was dropped in my 14m. Use my #6 waiver on him? Will probably drop Leuer who has just been gross

    2. Drop Tyson chandler or Jordan hill for Myles Turner? Capela is out there but his fts are just too brutal

    3. Was offered PG for Kat straight up. Thoughts?

    4. My dieng for Harrison Barnes?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Hamtime: 1. Leuer has been gross but not like Duncan has been much better. I’m fine with it, but would weigh other options. 2. Sure, lose Hill 3. Def take PG! Will hurt TO, but I can’t imagine declining. 4. Nah, esp. if same league, you need the Dieng

    Great work JB! Happy New Year man!

    12 team h2h points league… In need of C. should I drop Ilyasova for Nurkic?

    thanks again and keep up the good work

    • JB Gilpin

      @RicoSuave: Thanks man, happy new year! Eesh, both are better in categories, I think I’d hold Ily just bc I dunno if the mins will be enough for Nurk any time soon. Any time!

      • RicoSuave says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: right now my C are Dieng, Kanter and I just picked up RoLo but at this point none of them are getting consistent minutes and can be frustrating to own… I thought I’d stash Nurk until he gets better minutes and he would have a good playoff schedule… thoughts?

                  @RicoSuave: Oh OK, then yeah I would use the spot to stash Gordon first. And yeah, I’m good with getting both he and Nurk with weekly lock. So you can ride em out a little without hurting you. Any time!

    Hey, congrats on the panthers #1 seed, cam makes them fun to watch! The team currently in first in my keeper league offered me poison goose for Rubio. He needs ast obviously and wasn’t keeping him anyway. I accepted but ast now are decimated. Still stoked as long as it doesn’t get vetoed! He’ll go with brow and drum to make a nice big trifecta. Happy New Year!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mic C: Thanks man! Yeah we’re def a fun team, that I can see why annoys some people. Nice, Goose in a keeper! Great value. With Brow, might be worth shopping Drum for a PG to make you a solid %s team too… Happy new yr!

      • Mic C says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: good idea. I also have Bledsoe on the IL so when the trade goes through I’ll try to package bled and drumm for a great PG

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Mic C: Oh man, yeah if there’s a rebuilding team that owns like Westbrook or something, that might be killer value to them too

          • Mic C says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Westbrook owner didn’t bite on a package deal. So you think goose over bled for 3rs keeper for sure tho? And how does a drum + Bledsoe for cousins sound? If he’ll bite. Or if nothing else thinking maybe Bledsoe for Batum straight up he gets a better keeper and I get help this year?!
            Thanks for your help as always

            • JB Gilpin

              (link)

              @Mic C: Damn… Hmmmm I dunno, Goose v E Bled. It’s really close. Given only 3 keepers, I would say Bledsoe. Sure yeah that Cousins deal works for me. Yeah Batum seems about right, I would think you could get a tad more from a rebuilding team though. Any time!

              • Mic C says:
                (link)

    How would you rank the following pick ups? Trying to decide who to drop for Aaron Gordon or if I should just hold. I’m leaning towards PJ Tucker haha

    Ish Smith, Larkin, Bobby Portis, PJ Tucker. Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Eric: I’m likely holding all 4 of those guys over Gordon still. I’d rank em Larkin, Ish, Portis (for upside), Tucker

            (link)

            @JB Gilpin:

            Thanks, I’ll probably go ahead and do that then. Hopefully my recent pick ups will balance out the loss of Bledsoe.

    Happy Monday JB!

    Finally was able to trade Wall even though I didn’t get exactly what I wanted but ehhh, seeing as I’m in last place, changes had to be made.

    I got AD and Burke for Wall and Parsons

    Tough for me to let go of Chandler since I’ve been holding all year and he’s finally now turning things around but I’m punting assists so getting Davis made me feel all nice and warm on the inside. Plus, AD definitely has more trade value than wall so I’m probably gonna try and get a 2-1 since I need the depth.

    Do ju likey??

    Well Happy New Year to me…. I just returned from a cabin in the woods (no internet) to find out the news about Eric Beldsoe. Brutal!

    I need to replace him, and preferably with someone with SG status (only active SG’s now are Wiggins and Covington).

    I’m looking at names like:

    Tucker, E. Turner, Danny Green, Bogdanovic

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      • Rice says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks for the advise!

        What are your thoughts on Biyambo going forward? Will he still hold value in a deep 12 team H2H?

        Also thoughts on Sullinger? He’s been pretty quiet lately at about 7/7 with 36% shooting.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Rice: Sure, yeah deep 12ers he’s a hold for me, I’m holding in an RCL (standard 12er) where I need the big man stats. Sullinger has a wrist thing bugging him. I kinda hope they sit him a few to get him right – especially with their depth – but we’ll see

    I watched some of the highlights from Nurkic yesterday. He looked so good. He was baby hookin’ with both hands all over the place (that sounds really bad), granted it was the terrible Blazers frontcourt but I thought he looked really quick considering all the time off. Obviously the FTs are a pain but it shouldn’t be that bad moving forward. And yeah he won’t get the minutes to really help us in redraft but next year… I’m just glad he’s back. He’s one of my favorite big men to watch.

    Hey JB and Slim,

    Love all that you guys do for us.

    I recently lost Bledsoe and I am looking to attempt to replace him. What do you think of trading Al Horford for Isaiah Thomas/Demar Derozan/Kemba Walker?

    H2H 8 Cat (no turnover) 12 man League.

    My logic for trading Al is I have recently picked up Cody Zeller, Bismack and Nurkic. I would like to think that the three of them can replace his blocks/rebounds and I can go out and get an elite guard.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jake: Thanks for stopping by! Hmmm, no TO definitely hurts Horf. I think I’d only do it for Kemba.

    Drop dennis Schroder for Shane Larkin?

    Happy New Year!
    Is Zbo droppable in a 12 team league? I traded my Otto for him last week because I was short on big men, only had Porzingis, Jval, Len (dropped). But then after the traded got accepted, I was able to swing another trade my Hayward, Jval for Monroe, Korver. So right now I have Monroe, Porzingis, Biyombo, and Zbo. Most of the hot FA big men are gone, but if one comes up, would you drop Biyombo or Zbo first? Or would Korver be the first drop?

    Thanks!

    • Good STUFF says:
      (link)

      @Good STUFF: I sent out a trade, Fournier and Zbo for his Lavine, Cody Zeller. Too much? I like Lavine as a stash, and Zeller should be much better than Zbo while Al Jeff is out.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Good STUFF: Yeah I think so, especially with Barnes back. I’m likely dropping Korver first though, since you need the big man depth. Nah that trade is fine, seems even to me

        • Good STUFF says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: The guy just dropped Lavine haha, what about Fournier for Zeller straight up?

                I think of those I’ll go Sully even though it’s risky given role/lingering injuries. Any time!

  25. Lawson says:
    (link)

    Hi once again!

    Could you rank these 3: Bobby Portis, Aaron Gordon or Myles Turner? I have Bobby and Myles and recently dropped Aaron, would suffer if he starts producing now and some other manager grabs him… My whole team (14 guys) is Lillard, Larkin, Mudiay, Beverley, E Turner, Danny Green, Joe Johnson, T Jones, Ibaka, Vucevic, Portis, M Turner and Nurkic…

    Another interesting pickups could be N Cole, D Booker, Arthur, G Harris, Markief Morris, J Lamb, JR Smith.

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Lawson: Yo! Sure, I think I’d go that order you have them. Turner just doesn’t have the upside since they won’t play him a ton of mins. I think Mudiay is a drop for you if he’s in an active roster spot (not in IL). Probably adding Cole and see what happens. Any time!

      • Lawson says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: So you would add Gordon and Cole instead of Gordon and Mudiay? Although Mudiay is being a liabiity I see difficult to drop ihm…

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Lawson: Yeah I think I would take chance on Cole just bc all the Mudiay deficiencies. Plus they might bring him off bench for a bit to ease him in

    Ayy JB, with the announcement of skiles as Eastern Conf coach of the month the league clearly disagrees with you! haha but I guess for all his strange rotations the wins have been coming for the magic…

    Anyways, what do you think of this trade?

    My Favors, Taj, Chandler Parsons for his Giannis, Lillard.

    I’m thinking taj drops off as soon as noah comes back and favors’ back probs scare me but I also have to be worried about Lillard’s Plantar’s peanuts… I’m pretty much at a punt FG team too with covington, elfrid the shelfrid, and LaVine pulling my FG% downdowndown. Thanks man!

    Hey JB

    Was watching the Brooklyn game, saw Jack go down, immediately picked up Larkin for Gibson. I didn’t need a point guard, but I thought it was a good move either way. I decided to trade one of my PGs in a 2 for 1 and use Larkin to replace the PG I trade.

    It actually ended up being a 3 for 1. Eventually, I traded:

    Paul George + Dragic + T Jones FOR Durant.

    PG to Durant obvious upgrade. Larkin hopefully can somewhat make up for the Dragon. T Jones was a drop candidate anyway because I don’t have time for stashes.

    Essentially, I got rid of PG-13, Dragic, T Jones, and Gibson and got Durant, Larkin, and a stream spot.

    What do you think about it? Should I worry about Durant’s toe?

    (Side question if you are willing to answer: If you were to try to guess Larkins averages in all 9 cats given his new role, what would you guess?)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Billay: Yup, totally was a great move. Wow, great move with the trade too! I don’t think you give up too much in depth, and you can add some people. nah, not too worried about KDtoe. Slim is def better at projections, I’d go 42%/77%/13.0/4.0/6.0/1.8/0.1 with let’s go 1.7 treys. Close to 3 TO a game

      • Billay says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        Thanks and thanks.

        I’m sure Slim’s projections aren’t too far off anyway haha. I’m not a huge fan of using per-36 stats, or at least relying on them wholly, because due to a change in Larkin’s new role as the HEAD point guard, his freedom should increase. And, if things work out, his confidence gets even higher! He can be producing at a GREATER rate per minute as he is now.

        However, I’m pretty ignorant on what his previous role was, and whether or not he already had that freedom paying with the bench. Either way, I think he beats 13 PPG. Maybe 15-16.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Billay: Yeah the per-36 arguments are interesting – on one side is that per-36 for bench players is against worse competition so it should be worse, on the other is more freedom as you mention, and better ability to get in groove.

          If he gets 32-34 MPG, yeah he should. But I worry about bumpy minutes like his debut as starter last night

  28. Dante Green says:

    WTF Favors’ still out. So much for wanting a better start to the year, mine is off to a bad one. Lol. From here on out I need to get into a solid/flawless run to still miraculously get to the playoffs. Like at least 6-3 wins week after week!

    I passed up on the opportunity of snagging Nurk off the wire bcoz with a record of 29-61 (fucking last place) I think I don’t have the luxury of babysitting players. Gobert still without return date, Favors with his bad back, oft injured Carroll still getting his legs under him, Lillard battling foot injury. I need players who can help me win ASAP, not someone who will help me win next month. I really do wish I could invest on players like Nurkic… Wait it out and reap the rewards later, but sadly, I don’t have that luxury and can’t play the waiting game anymore. I. Need. To. Win. NOW.

    *as I was writing this news came out that Carroll is experiencing swelling in the same knee that caused him to miss 3 weeks of action and will not play. WTF. After 3 weeks in the sidelines his body still couldn’t hold up? How much more rest does he need? My team is already too crippled to suffer another injury. If Agordon, Danny Green, Tjones and Lawson all get a ton of mins and play well tonight, I’m gonna send Carroll’s ass to the wire. Jeez, I know we can’t predict injuries but that’s wasted 3 weeks man. You hold onto a guy for that long only to suffer to a setback? It makes you think what if you dropped his ass 3 weeks ago and snagged a hot player from the wire instead? I could’ve won one of those 3 matches. There’s no point in holding onto him, he rests his knee for another 3 weeks then comes back and reinjures it again? Nah, fuck it. I don’t need this shit. What have I done to make the fantasy gods hate me this much. This is unbelievable.

    • JB Gilpin

      @J: Yo! a – nice comps, really a PTS/REB only guy right now. I think I’d ride hot hand, which Nance is right now. b – I always err on side of no trade. Of course the chance is high he’s moved, but it’s hard to assume trades.

    barton’s been playing out of his mind and I need a SF eligible player.

    with this bad game and Larkin’s bad start, thinking of shooting my Reggie Jackson for his Barton and Larkin.

    is that giving away too much?

    thanks

      @patrickindo: Hmmmmm it’s def close. I feel like if you’re a #1 or #2 team and can afford to absorb a little risk I’d do it. Seems a little too risky if you’re more middle of the pack

    Right, so an interesting turn of events in my 9 team 14 cat roto. The following have been dropped and I have a #4 waiver pickup to use. I’m sure I’ll miss out on these guys but worth getting your opinion either way. The newly dropped players I’ve asterisked, and the rest are guys I’m interested in:

    Oladipo*
    T Parker*
    Sully*
    Rose*
    Carroll
    J Johnson
    Withey
    M Barnes
    Zeller
    Mahinmi

    I just lost Jack so swapped him for Nelson off the wire to take care of assists. I agree that even once Mudiay comes back, Nelson should have a really good role for them so I’m not willing to let go of him this week or the next BUT I really don’t have any other drop candidates other than Dieng, who I was THIS close to dropping today but I saw PHI on the sched and figured he’d have a good game, which he did. But I don’t see him being a guy I can trust to get me 10/8 and consistent blks. I freakin love Withey and he’s having another great game as I type this so shall I just assume that Favors may miss the next couple of days and swap him with Gorgui? Noah is my fav but still no timetable.

    Anyway, drop Dieng or Nelson (or both) for who above?

      @JB Gilpin: I’ll add that outside of losing Jack, I’m also a Gobert owner so I wonder if, even if Favors returns soon, Withey (god he’s a beast – glad I overpayed for him in RCL haha) will get the same amount of playing time til Rudy’s return.. If so, I’m dropping Gorg for him as he plays 3 in the next 5 days.

      My Lillard just returned so I really need to counter his A/TO and 3pt% with any future pickups, which is why a guy like Parker is valuable. I hate Johnson as much as the next guy, but perhaps HE may be the one with improved play in teh wake of Jack’s injury.

        @Lasandro: Definitely adding Oladipo. I dunno about Withey once Favors is back… I dunno if the pair can coexist as well as Withey on his own. I think if you’re needing more G stats you drop Dieng for Dipo, if you’re needing the big stats then lose Nelson for him. I am interested in Johnson, but he’s barely behind these 3

    12 team 9 cat h2h. should i drop jerami grant to pick up withey? he has 4 more games this week and i could use the blocks and steals.

      @justin: Sure, yeah that’s a solid stream move to me, I wouldn’t be married to Grant in a 12er

    Mister JB, I am really hesitating in between Trey Burke and Marcus Smart in a roto-league…(more opportunity for Burke but more upside for Smart to my opinion…I am torn…Help !

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Eric: Ugh that is a tough one! I would weigh it like this – if you need Pts/3s Burke, if your scoring has been solid lately, gimme Smart

    How would you rank Wiggins, Toby Harris, Greek Freak, and Favors rest of season in an H2H shallow league? I’m making playoffs for sure so I need late-season performers.

    I’m guessing Favors would be your #1 in this group but included him because his owner is entertaining trades.

    Cheers.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Mex: Yeahhhhh, Favors is still 1. Back injury risk makes him closer though, especially with a late season shutdown possibility. Giannis 2, Wiggy 3, Tobias last for me

    Danny Green strikes again. Lol. The d-stats has been OK but jeez, not worth a roster spot really. Anyway, I’ve been thinking of who to pick up for Green, looking to get some boards and blocks, it’s either Hibbert or Bogut, I’m leaning towards the latter, by the time you read this I might have already done it. Lol. I’m not sure if Portis clears the waivers in a few hours, maybe tomorrow, if the news about Carroll is as bad as it would seem, I would swap the two.

    • Dante Green says:

      I just realized that the Warriors are playing the second half of a b2b, not feeling good about Bogut, hah. I’m rolling the dice on Hibbert

        @Dante Green: Hah yeah Hibbert is a good add, but Green is indeed looking better which is nice. Def good streaming it

    Bosh or horford. For Roto league ?

      @Nont nontiskul: I’ll stick with Horford

    I have T. Jones and A. Gordon, and I can’t quite decide which coach I detest more. Question is, do I drop either for Bobby Portis? Bobby seems to be a part of the rotation from here on out even with Jo’s inevitable return. Where only a trade would help Jones and no more Skiles for Gordon. What do you think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Michael Sheridan: Of the 3, I think Jones is probably the one I’d hold most for trade upside. Eesh between the other two? So hard. Maybe POrtis for now, but could flip flop any night
