  1. Honestly dude, it's not so much the fantasy discussion that annoys me, but it's that you literally type in the most abrasive way. You can't plead innocence either like this: Because you literally hit me with this before, as well as other users, when we presented our perspectives civilly. It doesn't feel like "debating basketball", it just feels like **** flinging half the time and it's why I didn't reply back until now. If someone is just egging you on or poking at you, just ignore them man. It's not like we're being unreasonable either. For the most part, what peo
  2. While a lot of this depends on league size, a non-PG that can get you four assists regularly is already valuable in 10-12 team leagues. It seems really presumptuous to call it "starving for assists" when some < 50 guys that average 4+ maybe even 5+ assists in the league. Then you can look at 3s made and the list gets even smaller... and most of those guys left in this category are all early round players. It's pretty obvious that his value is not an easy commodity to find and would help any team. I hope this is an exaggeration too, because any team with Elfrid Payton in the NBA
  3. He's not a top 50 guy right now, but he's far from mediocre unless you're in a shallow league. The blocks "disappeared" for a week and including those three no block games there's like only two other games where he hasn't recorded one. I think that's pretty consistent. The real drag on his ranking was his free throw percentage, but he's been like 80%+ for the last month and his average there is starting to normalize. I can think of like five guys that can get you that combination of 50+ FG%/75 FT%/1.5 blocks and Allen is one of the few.
  4. How is this mediocre? Maybe I have different expectations since I just traded for Allen and am a new owner, but I'll happily take good percentages, no turnovers, and multiple stocks any day. As long as he does those things, I won't haggle over a rebound/point or two.
  5. I haven't watched him really since two years ago (I missed today's game and he was hurt most of last year), but he'd be a speculative pickup/stream in counting stats due to volume of minutes rather than his potential as a per minutes kind of player. He played 25 MPG as a rookie and was definitely more valuable as a real life player than in fantasy, as his role was mostly as a gritty defensive glue guy (not a steals play either). I expect more of that (glue guy role) going forward and he'll probably be the kind of guy that will bounce around waivers as people stream him.
  6. That's exactly what I'm thinking. The thing is that James Johnson only needs 20-25 minutes to consistently push for a 1/1/1 and I feel like the situation has enough opportunity for those minutes. He could push for a starting PF gig, but also could simply get some run as a backup for either spot. Realistically too, I don't think he can stay on the court that much longer even if he started (like a 24-28 MPG role) because he has a history of making mental mistakes and playing outside of himself.
