  1. It looks like he started well in the preseason, but it's unclear how many minutes he may get throughout the season. What do you guys think?
  2. i'm giving my own awards considering my league is very different from anyone else's here. it's a 12 teamer H2H, but it is a points league and per-minute statistics count most as you have given minutes totals to fill in the best way. MVP - it is a very close call between the Brow, the Beard and Lebron. Harden has the most Fantasy Points Per Minute (FPPM) with 1.21; Davis comes just short (1.19) but played more MPG, for 43.3 Fantasy Points Per Game (FPPG). Harden had 42.5 FPPG. Lebron is 5th in FPPM (a career high 1.17, while 3rd and 4th are Embiid and Westbrook) but played an i
  3. H2H points, points per minute matter All-year team C: Drummond, Jokic F: Randle, Pau Gasol, David West, Josh Jackson, Kuzma, Sabonis G: Lillard, D'angelo, Payton, Barea Honorable mention to Mike James who was awesome per minute when I was without D'lo. You didn't deserve to be cut by the Suns. Disclaimer: I still didn't win but I'm up 1-0 and my opponent is without Embiid, so if I lose it'll be because of sudden injuries or crazy streaks (either my players becoming stupid or carmelo dropping 50's) Dropped players: Kuzma, Sabonis, P
  4. I hope both Malone and Jokic get their s--- together soon. I still have 4 games left for round 1 and I'm still winning (I'm against the 8th), but right now seed #4 is killing it and I'm going to lose with this Jokic
  5. he may start playing less... but curry is not going to return and he has had a pretty consistent role also, he already had a slight dip recently but is now fully back to speed and has rested through the break. i'm positive he will be good the rest of the way
  6. with "parker" i'm assuming jabari (not tony) anyway it's a tough choice because all 3 those players have nice upside and haven't been bad this season (unless it's tony. in that case, just drop him) i guess it depends on your schedule and where you think those players will land to. i.e.: i dropped kuzma when he was playing bad (and of course he had a great game while he was still clearing waivers, but that's another story) but i knew he wasn't going to a playoff team because in my league we play a little money and the more down you are in the standings, the more you pay co
  7. after not playing last night i call it quits. he was available on sunday but didn't play and the excuse was he still hadn't trained with the team. fair enough, but now i just think it's time to move on i dropped him and picked up john wall. i'm confident it will be the right decision in the long run. i'm 1st ATM so i think i'll easily survive the first round and in the best case scenario john wall will be back on the first game of my PO's 2nd round
  8. i've been exactly there last season. for like 2 thirds of the season i had my average score between 1st and 3rd and somehow i floated between 3rd and 8th until jabari parker went down and i lost at the first round of the playoffs my top moment: i was 5-0 and facing a 0-5 guy, his top score in the season was 209 (for reference mine was 259) and he beat me 210-209
  9. i doubt that the lakers dropped him when they found out the difference between his fantasy ADP and his fantasy points anyway it depends on the format, in points league he used to be a beast and right now he is OK-to-good. I drafted him 43rd and he is 39th for fantasy points per minute, including a major drop the first 3-4-5 games after the injury. before the injury he was like 15th, and in my team he was doing better than jokic and drummond.
  10. well, i'm pretty sure god has something better to do than fantasy basketball, don't you think
  11. so these 2 owners have drafted isaiah thomas at round 6 (12 teamer). i inquired about thomas right after the draft to one of the 2 owners and he said the only guy they were considering from my team to make a trade with was jokic (which I picked at 1st round, 10th overall). instead of wtf-ing my way out of that conversation i tried to explain that if i meant to sacrifice my 1st pick for thomas i would have taken him at my first pick, or 2nd, or 3rd, or 4th, or 5th. or 6th too, i can't remember if i had it before them. also that jokic averaged 1.11 fantasy points per minute (fppm, my league work
  12. damn, i dropped when porzingis went down as i was closely watching hernangomez. i picked him up and in few hours he got traded (in charlotte he is again the 3rd option as center) as well as larry nance. fml at least i was able to grab josh jackson right when he started balling
  13. i've owned kuzma since draft day but i never watched the lakers this season (i live in europe and they usually play very late, like 3/4 AM local time). so what's up with him? why has his scoring gone so down, for so long? has something changed in the lakers rotation/offense or is it just a tough moment for him personally (rookie wall maybe)?
  14. I looked yesterday and he had like 0 points and 5 rebounds in 13 minutes, then fortunately he turned it around. It was also a tough matchup, let's hope he keeps it going!
  15. Yep haha Vucevic is going to be back, and hopefully kawhi too, but Love and Wall got injured together and have the same timetable (6-8w), which means that in their best case scenario they get back the 1st game of our 2nd round It's just that I'm not sure he will make the playoffs. Our top 9 teams are very strong and there are just 8 places. His only hope is that the 9th team is coming strong now but had a terrible start (he was dead last for weeks) and the 8th is doing the opposite and now he's drowning
  16. i'm with that guy who said we can't think we know more or better than an nba coach, let alone seeing the guys everyday in trainings and stuff. especially considering the nuggets' record at the moment, malone is right. with that said, why on earth did he start arthur as the center? according to the blurb he played 6 minutes in all january, and according to the depth chart he is a power forward, so i'm assuming malone likes jokic at pf, or at least sees a future where jokic plays the 4. but actually malone publicly said he didn't like the way jokic was playing, and the only future i see is
  17. sure, i'm not saying that he will become 100th all of a sudden, but he was a beast, and now i'm afraid he'll just go back to normal. rare footage of yesterday drummond's performance
  18. guys, don't panic. d'lo took 14 and 11 shots in two 20-minute games, this is a great sign. look at all the players who average 12+ shots per game, they're usually fantasy monsters (maybe depending on your scoring format, but still). taking just 10 shots in 20 minutes would mean 18 shots in 36 minutes, and d'lo took even more than 10. he will be great
  19. A guy in my league's first 4 choices are Leonard, Wall, Love and Vucevic ? somehow he is still in the playoffs for now
  20. He didn't? Dj has -3.8 rebs per 36 min when he shares the floor with Blake. Also, 58% of Drummond's assist were to either Harris or Bradley. On top of that, Blake only dished 0.8 assists per game to dj, so he plays his own offense without including the C so much. Damn, this trade just screwed us Edit: I'm not even mentioning the usage rate
  21. i'm kind of pessimistic on this. i feel like blake will take a few assists, points and rebounds off andre. if he went down with an injury though, let the 30-20 games fly w/o bradley and harris
  22. Oh. My. I've been waiting for this guy so bad. In my scoring format he is a straight up beast (h2h points, %'s don't count and per minute basis), drafted in the 4th round but he is actually my best player in fantasy points per minute (my first 3 rounds choices were jokic dame and Drummond)
  23. ehm, yes, and it makes full sense (i'm leading the league atm so i'm not a noob or anything). if you visit my profile you should see how my league's scoring works. last year he was 7th in the league for fantasy points per minute (1.11 tied to lebron, though i'm not considering marjanovic who did 1.17 FPPM but in just 8.5 MPG and was way too unreliable for his DNP's). ahead of him were westbrook 1.44, harden 1.24, cousins 1.23, davis 1.21, embiid 1.19, durant 1.17. I didn't feel like using a top 3 pick for guys like davis and embiid because of injury risk; durant is probably going t
  24. of my players, jokic has got to be #1. he just doesn't put up shots, which is mind boggling if you think there is no gallo and millsap was either figuring his way into the team or injured. i was seriously considering to take him #1 overall, maybe challenged by cousins or lebron. mercifully i had the 10th choice in the 1st round and still managed to take him, so it doesn't feel as bad as if i had passed on harden, or giannis. (with my league's scoring, last year jokic ranked 7th, tied to lebron, including his bad start. considering he is very young, thus likely improving
