    Good luck. I both emailed and chatted with ESPN customer care about the fact that Danuel House obviously isn't included in their current database of players and got exactly nowhere

    wait what? House is not available as a player in ESPN? Man i been saying it for years to ya'll, get off that scrub platform and join Yahoo. ESPN is obviously a joke for fantasy ball

     Yep  by total and average he is #1👍🏻 Ayton is technically #1 by average and AD #2..but obviously Ayton played one game..








    Don't really see why it's surprising to anyone he has always been the clear best fantasy player and it's not really close. 

  3. I'll take 10 pts 5 assists 1 steal 1 block 2 threes on a terrible shooting night. He will have a bunch of nights like this but will have hot streaks as well. He's a rookie it's normal. The good thing is he clearly can fill up every category. If you have good fg anchors having one or two players like Culver is manageable in h2h at least

    Yes for sure. This guy shouldn't still be on waivers, and if he is, should be grabbed immediately. I'm in 10+ leagues and he is not available anywhere. 

    I dunno man. He puts up nice stats in limited mins especially stocks but Adams is starting to come on and get into a groove so a lot of nights noel will only get 18 to 20 min. Adam's wasn't healthy before but seems to be nearly up to speed

    36 mins pg is unsustainable ROS. Raptors have depth, and they have not fallen in the standings (currently 4th). No reason to keep on playing this much. I hope he gets around 32 mins ROS. He can easily reach top25 status if healthy! Kudos to anyone who bought low on him.

    Ya 32 mpg is what they should keep him at. The 40 minute games are juicy for fantasy but will more than likely lead to injuries like the one he just had, I'm ok with his ceiling being reduced a little bit if he can stay healthy. Like you said, at 32 mpg he will still easily be a top 30 guy.

    True, a lot of players have had jumps over the years so it’s not like I am guaranteeing his complete downfall. Ingram leads the team in shots so far with 18 a game. I know it was just preseason, but Zion led them in shots with 12 and Ingram was 3rd with 10.8 (2nd if you take NAW out but Holiday was real close at 10.5).

    All of this obviously wasn’t on 30 minutes a night but he was not exactly doing what he is doing now in the preseason on this team when they were completely healthy so I still question what will happen when they are Also keeping in mind the obvious regression in three point shooting and more than likely FTs as well which have both already stated to happen. 50% on threes in October. 39.3% in November. 76.9 FT% in October. 73% in November.

    Not only do I think he will not regress, I think he will keep improving as the season goes on. His confidence is bursting now, Zion won't affect this at all and anyone can see that Zion will have an early career Embiid season this year where he hardly plays, it's pretty obvious. Yes his 3pt% at 39 is realistic and of course 50% is not, and ya his ft% probably will be around 75%, which is meh but whatever it's not really a negative. The suns announcers (unbiased) last game kept stating the obvious as well, that Ingram is the best player on the team. 

    I just don't agree with the approach of "lets see if he can keep it up" before fully believing in someone. Ingram had a weird trajectory I agree, he was being written off by a lot of people because he was expected to smash out of the gates like Durant did, but he was not in very good situations for his development and maybe he just needed a bit more time. Whatever the case, when you watch Ingram now it's like watching Luka and Trae, you don't need to see a bigger sample, it's clear they are stars.

    brooklyn is 6-8 not 5-10 and it's still early in the season..plenty of time to make the playoffs

    Nets will still make playoffs, the top 6 is set for sure in the east with bucks, philly, raps, celts, heat and pacers. nets are better than the rest of the teams except maybe Orlando, but there is room for both of them to make it. For sure the hornets, bulls, wiz, pistons, hawks, cavs and knicks not making it. so the competition is a joke in the east still.

    And I gotta love the smaller sample size of this year versus years of Ingram that determined what I said before the season started.

    If everything holds the whole season then yes he has improved and I would be wrong on him. No problem admitting that. But are they? Are you sure?

    Is Zion playing yet? When he does, we will see if he still isn’t at the end of the day the third option. Why is it “OMG I can’t believe he said that” to think Jrue and Zion would be higher than him in the pecking order before the season started? #1 pick in Zion and the guy they called their best player in Jrue.

    So Redick and Favors aren’t solid vets that should get touches? Favors has been dinged up and Redick is just now coming on. What is absurd about what I said regarding them?

    62% FT his first year in the NBA. 68% his second year. 67.5% his third year. 196 games. Would you not call that a bad FT shooter up to that point? What was crazy about it? He shot in the 60s in college too. 74.6% in 11 games this year. Cool. Better but still not a good FT if he keeps that up.

    29.4% three point his first year. 39% his second year. 33% his third year. 196 games. All on low volume for a reason. Is that not a bad three point shooter tho up to that point? Again, why is this crazy? He is shooting 45% on 5.5 attempts in 11 games. Cool. You sure he is keeping that up? For example, you know what Klay shot in threes last year?40%. The year before. 44%. So he is going to shoot better than Klay?

    Averaging 7 rebounds still doesn’t make him a good rebounder but when I said it he was 4, 5.3, 5.1 in three years. At that point, would you call that a good rebounder? Would you call 7 a good rebounder?

    I didn’t get his appeal in fantasy considering where he had been drafted the past three years. Poor FT%, no threes, not great stocks, not great rebounding. Just scoring. Cool that you thought he was going to improve to be a 25.6 scorer with across the board improvements, but 11 games in doesn’t make my comments of 196 games of data insane nor does it really make you right yet.


    Fair points. But what you are missing is probably not watching Ingram, all you have to do is watch the games and you can see he is special. Scores in every way imaginable and does what he wants. He has that ability where if he is on, just like KD, you can't guard him it doesn't matter what you try to do. Also his mid range fadeaway is so filthy like he prolly yells "KOBE" in his head when he does it.

    Still ranked 50th on BBM 9 cat. 

    His poor week still had him ranked 85th for that period, i don't know about you guys but i drafted him in the 70s.. 

    If he's your biggest concern your team must be flying. 



    rankings don't matter this early in a season, sample size is too small. for example, PJ Washington being dropped like crazy right now, yet he is still ranked in the 50s. It's because he has put up like 4 duds in his last 7 games...you can see in the thread the quick change from "wow one of pickups of year!" to "drop this bum." It happens quick. For Bryant it mostly depends on minutes. 

    From October 23 to Nov 8, only 1 game he played he got less than 30 minutes. From Nov 13 to 20 (last 4 games), he has never reached 30 minutes, and the average over that period is around 25 minutes. So the problem for Bryant owners is if these newer minutes become the norm, in which case, he will be like a top 80ish guy rather than a top 40-50 player.

    Aiming for this kid in keeper/dynasties, hoping for the owner to be extremely frustrated and give up on him.

    On the other hand, an easy drop in redrafts if you have a solid top-100 player somehow left in the waiver wire.


    Has literally one of the most highest ceilings in the whole league regarding his gifted physique and skillset.

    However, skeptical about him reaching that ceiling THIS year. Simple as that.



    He is FAR from an easy drop in redrafts. That has the potential for a league losing drop. I am disappointed in his start of course but will never drop him in my 12 teamer ... he should only be dropped if you are in a weak league where ROS studs are available on the wire somehow like Devonte Graham. Any other "top 100" player you are talking about being on the wire will very likely be dropped themselves after you add them, whereas JJJ we know has the upside and opportunity to be a top 40 player. Remember that last season he started terrible as well.

    I really don’t understand why brooks isn’t at least attempting to play him out there with Bryant. He’s a stretch shooter and he looks great defensively, use them like olynyk and bam.


    Give it time. I think he is starting to emerge as the best of the 3 between him, bryant and bertrans. better defender than both of them I would say, definitely better offensively than both, plus his name sounds super cool and that's important too. I don't think he will explode but I wouldn't be surprised if he settles into like a 28 mpg role and if injuries happen to bryant/bertrans, look out.

    Regarding Levert, obviously I meant trash in terms of fantasy. This is a fantasy forum, so everything should be assumed as such unless otherwise stated. Like how I otherwise stated with Kyrie. Your reading comprehension could use a few more SAT review books. I clearly stated that Kyrie is a superior baller/basketball player. But he is cancer in the NBA. A complete and utter toxin. Every team he goes on tanks, every player he interacts with becomes worse. I should say almost every. The only ones immune are the literal all-timers like Lebron and KD because they are so so so good that even a parasite like Kyrie can't hurt them. But for everyone else, Kyrie may as well be a giant tapeworm in the anus

    My reading comprehension lol. You literally said "Kyrie is a terrible NBA player." That doesn't mean fantasy player, there is not much to comprehend. I also do get what you are saying that he is super talented and skilled but hurts his teams...I mean he didn't work out with the Celtics for sure, but he made the Cavs 100x better than they were without him. I do agree with you about him being a giant tapeworm in the anus though ... his character is actually worth less than that.

  13. Vyun should stop posting on these forums man. Levert is far from trash, even if his fantasy game is a bit trash. He was excellent last season before his injury, and when he came back in the playoffs he was also the best or 2nd best player during those games. Kyrie is a terrible nba player? Are you serious man? I am a huge Kyrie hater, can't stand him and his personality and his whining but he is still an amazing player. If not for Kyrie, Lebron had no chance winning that title on the Cavs. Kyrie played great in those finals, hit the most important shots late in the games, and obviously the dagger to win the championship at the end. I think he just likes trolling otherwise his takes are terrible.

    Lots of talented young guards in the NBA right now, including a very impressive rookie class (some of whom are killing it already).  Stashing a mercurial youngster in the season's early days can pay off big time if they blossom later in the season; witness Trae Young last year, Donovan Mitchell two years ago, etc.  So which young guards are your best bets to flourish into stars later this season?  Here are a few possibilities:


    Dejounte Murray

    Coby White

    Tyler Herro

    Collin Sexton

    Darius Garland

    Tomas Satoransky

    Markelle Fultz (yes, really)


    What do you think?  Who is missing from the list, and who doesn't belong?


    I would say the only once who has a chance to genuinely "blow up" is Garland. Dejounte I would never touch because he doesn't provide needed pg stats. Sexton sucks. White is a flash in the pan and will alternate duds with Sato and Dunn. Garland has easily the clearest path to 32-34 mpg role, the most upside, and in the best fantasy situation on that rebuilding cavs squad. Even still unless in very deep leagues Garland is just a watch list guy as he has not had one game that I would consider to be a really good game.

    Top 70 still ambitious. He’s not suddenly a better basketball player. Dude is still mediocre on the court. Just getting a lot of touches which will steadily go down as the Cavs stink it up and they start letting their two young guards start doing whatever they want. Top 100 is realistic, still worth owning, but that’s a substantial crash from top 30

    Ya because the young guards have an impact on Tristan's 30 mpg....not.  He has had basically one bad game, last night, on the season. He had 3 fouls in the first half of that game and never got going to recover in the 2nd. What will you say if next game he goes 20 and 10? Top 70 is hardly ambitious. I guess you didn't see last season where he was playing like a monster just like he is now before he got injured derailing his season. Even if he only averages 14 and 9 with 1 block on his percentages, that is guaranteed top 70.

    It says he gave Randle+Jrue for Vuc, not Jrue for Randle+Vuc. In any case I'd take Vuc over Jrue any day of the week. This is a sell high line with Ingram out. He won't end at ADP this season. 

    Oh I mixed that up then. Dont like as much but I agree I prefer Vuc over jrue this season

    Wrong. Regress Jrues shooting percentages to his career norms... you’ll see that his numbers are almost identical to last season where he put up first round value. 

    Watch the crying on this thread once Ingram returns dropping his typical 25-5-5 games and we will see
