    anyone else worried about this consistent heel issue?

    Slightly. I think the All star break will get rid of this issue though. Not a bad idea to throw some trade proposals out - he's just so hard to replace. You need basically like a Gobert to match what he does and the other owner would not do that without you adding a decent sweetener in.

    According to Chris Kirschner of the Athletic, the Hawks have contemplated a possible trade for Steven Adams.

    Alex Len will be a free agent this summer and Damian Jones may not receive a qualifying offer, meaning Bruno Fernando could be the only center under contract for 2020-21. The Thunder are undergoing a rebuild and it's been widely reported that Adams can be had in a trade, and Atlanta would be a great landing spot for him, especially for fantasy basketball. Atlanta is serious about finding Trae Young some help sooner rather than later which makes the Hawks an interesting team to monitor in the rumor mill.



    This would be dope. One of only trades I can think of that would probably not hurt his value and may even improve his value.

    You will fam

    They both suck imo so prob won't regret it. Rui has talent but his game is not fantasy friendly - because he doesn't provide stocks or 3s (0.4 3s, 0.7 stls, and 0.1 blks are his averages over 29 mpg - terrible). He is basically a 2 cat contributor, points and boards, with decent %. So boring.

    His hype was never justified. Too many sheep in here blindly follow scrubs like josh lloyd and Gallagher 

    Looks like I have been right so far. Last 4 games without Bryant he is averaging 10-8-1 with 0.6 3s, 0.8 stls, and 0.2 blocks in 25 mpg. Being dropped in most leagues already, yet half the posters in this thread would have had everyone believe he was going to average better numbers than Deandre Ayton did last season.

    Yeah, those expectations are way too ridiculous considering he’s playing against starters now. 

    With that being said, Rui’s line doesn’t look as good if you consider that he got that line in 43 minutes. If Wagner got that much time then it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume he’d have a monster line too.

    Only one game so far for Moe anyway, let’s just enjoy the ride for the next month or so before TB comes back. But if they keep winning like this, he might even stick in the starting lineup as well...

    The thing is though is that it seems Rui will be playing huge minutes while Bryant is out. Last 3 games, 38, 38, and 43 mins. I agree with you that Rui is no world beater, but he is trending up nicely and he's a touted lottery pick, compared to Wagner who is a nobody so far. 

    I'm not even saying Wagner will suck...he played well in his role previously, but what I'm saying is that maybe he won't improve those numbers much as a starter, and especially if Brooks still limits him to 25 mins, that means Brooks doesn't like him as much as this forum does obviously. 

    Wagner is getting way too much attention anyway, people should already be putting their attention on Hayes who is looking more and more beast all the time and could start to run away with the C job in NO. He's the much better add right now

    lol what was wrong with that line? He didn't eclipse the 30 min mark and he put up decent stats. For a guy you picked up off the wire, I don't know what some of you are expecting.

    I've personally got Jokic issues.

    Bruh you have seen what they are expecting... they are expecting Ghallager predictions or even their own higher predictions of like 17-10-3 with 1 block 1 steal 1.5 3s, a.k.a they expecting Vucevic from some bench wire player

    3 week rental that could turn into a 2nd half play. And Bryant isn't out for 3 weeks, he'll be reevaluated in 3 weeks. He could be out closer to 2 months.

    Lol man...guys in here are pretty clueless it's funny to me. First someone said they prefer to have Wagner over Adams who is on the wire (lol really?), and now someone dropped TT for wagner. TT is averaging 14 and 11 with a block a game and a guaranteed starting role with 30+ min per game for Wagner....an unproven nobody that has done absolutely nothing, not even shown a high ceiling or upside (please don't make sheep comments like ... ohh but if you extrapolate his per minute stats to 30 min he is gonna be averaging 18 and 8 with 1 block 1 steal because that is actually one of the most clown arguments I have ever heard and I can provide 100 examples of scrub players who produce well in a 20 min bench role but when given a starting opp don't do anything more).

    I will say again, Rui ***** on Wagner. Fantasy is about opportunity. Brooks is not giving Wagner 30 mins, but he is giving Rui 40 mins and playing him at C when he is not a C at all...shows much Brooks is just dying to play Wagner big C minutes...not.

    To be fair, if I see Adams on the FA I would still have to think really hard before picking him up. He brings traditional center minuses in FT% and 3PT while barely blocks any shots. 

    In a competitive league Adams would never be on the wire to  begin with. Last season dude averaged 14 10 and 2 with 1.5 steals and 1 block on high 55% fg. His negative is ft% which has actually been improving. Since he has gotten over his injury he has been a monster last 2 weeks check his log. Also has like 9 blocks over last 5 games.

    Drop Fultz?? Cmon man I like Culver and I own him too but that's terrible advice. Fultz has been top 100 the past month and top 90 the past two weeks and is clearly improving every game.

    everyone is different but i don't have pg's that don't hit 3s on my team. also fultz is playing his best ball right now and can barely crack top 100. I prefer culver's out of position stats (blocks, rebs) over fultz higher scoring

    Used him and impending WW material to buy low on Jokic and Porzingis

    He's pretty money when he plays, but my squad was struggling with all the missed games  

    amazing trade for you. kawhi load management is out of control. in h2h leagues I would move him for even a severe discount. let's say he has a 3 game playoff week, he could easily not play in 2 of those for load management and you have no idea or control of when it will happen. 

  11. You know you are a true monster when Yahoo doesn't blurb you after a 39 pt 10 assist game on 57% fg. I think the blurb they did write about his usage decreasing once huerter, reddish, and hunter develop more is also a bunch of BS. He is probably close to, if not leading, the league in minutes and usage rate. That won't change.

    think the best way to move him is package joker and another top 50ish player for KAT if you have the depth.

    Don't think any KAT or AD owner would bite on that type of deal though - I know I wouldn't. If you can as a jokic owner though you guys should try this for sure.

    According to Hawks GM Travis Schlenk, Trae Young's usage rate will decrease once Kevin Huerter (shoulder, knee) is healthy.

    Schlenk also cited the development of Cam Reddish and De'Andre Hunter. "Once Kevin gets fully back, you’ll probably see [Trae's usage] taper off because he can handle the ball a little bit more," he said. "As Cam and De’Andre start to develop more and Coach starts getting more confident in them handling the ball, you’ll see it go down." Usage is a key indicator of fantasy value, so this isn't great news for fantasy owners, but Young should be fine -- he's at 34.5% usage and a slight dip won't be the end of the world.

    Great news moving forward , just gotta give Huerter a couple weeks to get his minute restrictions lifted. Big things are coming , I feel it in my bones 

    That is good news but I am pretty skeptical of that. I don't see Trae's usage going down ever. He is too alpha and the team needs him to be that away. Even Collins return probably just helps Trae get 2-3 more assists per game and doesn't change anything else.

    I agree that Huerter could still go off. I'm just not in a place right now to hold him through these times and will hope that no one else wants to hold him through the bad times and can get him later if he pops off.

    I really miss the superhuman numbers

    2018:   52% FG, 79% FT, 0.9 3PM, 26 pts, 12 rebs, 3.9 ast, 1.6 steals, 2.4 blocks

    2019:   49% FG, 86% FT, 1.2 3PM, 26 pts, 9 rebs, 3.2 ast, 1.4 steals, 2.7 blocks

    Is there really much of a difference that you miss "superhuman numbers"

    Nothing there is really significant, especially since his fg% has continued to climb since week 1. If anything, I prefer this season's line which keeps trending up.
