    That 1.1 block difference is significant though, since blocks are probably the hardest category to accumulate. 



    Player A: 62% fg, 79% ft, 16.5 pts, 10.5 rebs, 2.5 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.9 blocks

    Player B: 54% fg, 84% ft, 15.3 pts, 11.8 rebs, 2.1 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.5 blocks


    Player A is Ayton, ranked 35.  Player B is Enes Kanter, ranked 82.  There is a tendency to overlook the significance of defensive stats because .5 vs .9 may not appear to be a huge gap, however, it is quite significant.  1.1 Blks is the difference between a top 30 player vs a mid round player.  If Enes Kanter got an additional 1.1 BLKs per game, he'd be a top 20 player.

    He's a known quantity. Nobody is dumb enough to sell Rubio low when it's common knowledge that he steps it up in the second half. So tired of everyone acting like they're the smartest guy in the room by saying they'll pick him up for peanuts in the 2nd half. It's not clever. 


    I thought that's the whole idea of buying low...  to send out offers before he turns it up second half.  Also, I think to disregard other variables is short sighted.  For instance, an owner who has been consistently losing and can't wait for the second half turn around. 


    It's fantasy basketball, people panic.  Doubts creep in and people make silly moves.  That's how buying-low usually works..

  3. Warriors are fine.  That's why they are taking their time with Curry.  They know that barring catastrophe, they are going to cruise to the conference finals and probably a championship.  Media just needs things to talk about in November and December, but come playoff time, I really don't see a team on the West that is giving them any problems.  Everyone else is fighting for second place.

    Na, they're not going to be fine.


    I've actually developed depression due to his perfomance this year, quit my job last night, my wife's not answering my texts, I think she's sleeping with my granpda.


    I hate you Ricky, you ruined everything.


    Think you got bigger problems than fantasy basketball mate. 


    That being said, I think Ricky will turn it around.  If I remember correctly, he's a second half of the season type of player anyways.  He's on my buy-low list... like low

    Mitchell is tricky because he was overdrafted. His efficiency should improve, but not by much. If you want to buy him treat him as a 3rd round pick (which he should've been).


    This. He was drafted at his ceiling, but I say he still has a chance to finish top 30-40 which is still a buy-low considering where he's at right now.  He can definitely improve upon his current numbers.

    It’s good he’s improving but a top 30 finish is a stretch this year imo.  15/5/5 with 2 threes, 2 steals, and .7 blocks is top 30 value but he hasn’t averaged that over any stretch. Over the last two weeks he’s hit that in every category except for threes and steals, although he’s average over two spg in the last week.  He’s efficiency hasn’t been good: 46/76/1.9 to which is below the median in every category.  I think it’s safe to assume top 40-50 ros though. 


    This is exactly where I have him.  Lots of ball handlers ins Milwaukee and some nights the ball is going to be dominated by the hot hand.  There is a big difference between 2 3's and 2 stls per night vs 1.5 and 1.5. which is closer to what he will average in 30 minutes.  I would love a top 30 finish, but I think 40-50 range is where he will be at barring an injury to Middleton, Brogdon or Giannis.

  7. KD is leaving if they win this year.  He did what he came to do winning 3 championships and 2-3 finals MVPs.  He's aiming to claim the title of best player in the world and won't be able to do that on GSW.  He'll need to be the clear cut #1 option on his own team to do that and I imagine he will continue following the LeBron route and try to take his own team to the finals.  KD may be the best player on GSW, but the Warriors are Steph's team.  I was living in Oakland during their reign and the Bay loves Curry.  Ain't no one buying KD t-shirts out there.

  8. Trades I won:  My: Jimmy Butler + Doncic for James Harden 

    Trades I lost:  My: WCJ for OPJ (good move by OPJ owner early in the season.  Gotta give him props.  This trade still burns pretty bad)


    Yet to be seen:  My: Gallinari for JJJ (I typically always try to move injury prone players for stability or upside)

                                My: Brook Lopez for Gordon Hayward (Lopez has been going off, recently so I've been feeling stupid, but it happens).

    Didn't even have this dude but just wanted to extend my sympathy towards those who did as well as nets fans. This is really unfortunate, he was a young stud on the cusp of becoming a legitimate star player. F**k injuries man. 


    Here's hoping he comes back better than ever. 


    This.  I don't have him, but my sentiments exactly.  I hope he has a speedy recovery.

    Rosterable in 12 team standard 9 cat leagues?


    Definitely worth it for the upside.  Just expect the ups and downs of holding a rookie on a team that is competing.  He's been shooting the 3ball well and if he can manage one 3 a game, he will be a solid PG with great defensive stats that won't hurt you anywhere.  Patience is the key with this one.

  11. When I say sell high, I mean if Harrell is performing at a top 50 level currently, I would make the offer for someone who has shown that they can finish at a top 60-70 level.  The appeal to that owner would be that if he believed Harrell is going to maintain his current production (top 50) he would in theory "win" that trade.  Whereas for the owner selling high, he mitigates risk of that player regressing, thus selling high.


    The question on who is buying is has much to do with which owner thinks Harrell can maintain or exceed his current performance.
