Quick question for those that owned JJ last year. Was he this inconsistent last year? Should I expect this up and down all year if I pick him up now? Thanks

As far as I can remember yes. But it had something to do with his undefined role to begin the season. In my league he got dropped and picked up from the wire several times until I picked him up for the last third of the season and he rolled.

If you ask me he's the most underrated player in fantasy - it's a crime that he only has 2 pages written. Sure, his TOs are far from perfect, he's not the greatest FT shooter, but he just about saves

Guys before this 3 game cold streak Jimmy J. Was putting up better numbers than last season with Waiters healthy so I think all of this is a classic overreaction again. Heck some were calling Jimmy  D

I think there's a good chance Miami will deal Whiteside and possibly also Dragic to open up minutes across the team.. I'm going to wait post trade-deadline before deciding if I drop or not.. if Miami

From what I remember it was him and fellow "Brother's Johnson", Tyler Johnson, who turned the whole Heat season around. After that 41 game split where the Heat went on that magical run, he was a consistent weekly top 50-60 option the rest of the season and was a league winning waiver pickup on a lot of championship teams 

 

first 41 games Top 107: 48 / 70 / 1/ 11 / 5 / 3 / .8 / .9

last 41 games Top 60: 47 /  72 / 1 / 14 / 5 / 5 / 1.2 / 1.3

Waiters was the main driving force behind that run. He put the whole squad on his back. But the Johnson's played their part no doubt.

As a sub...

I really don't think it's relevant. He's coming off an ankle injury so they may want to limit his min a bit and could also be match up based.

Probably.

 

It's just that he was starting to surge as a starter, so hopefully Spo puts him back where he belongs sooner rather than later.

It doesn't seem to matter either way. His stats and minutes are very similar regardless. 

 

As Starter 11 28:17 4.5 8.8 50.5 0.5 2.3 20.0 1.7 2.4 73.1 0.4 5.4 5.7 4.2 2.3 1.0 1.2 2.9 11.1
As Sub 17 27:00 3.9 8.1 48.6 1.1 2.7 39.1 1.8 2.6 68.9 1.1 3.7 4.8 4.1 2.5 1.0 0.5 2.9 10.8

Minutes similar yes.

Numbers are close, but better. And as I mentioned, he was doing well before the injury.

 

Regardless, happy he's back! (Ahead of schedule too IIRC?)

Point is his value is tied to whether he starts or comes off the bench. For example, I don't think there's any rhyme or reason as to why he has more 3's and less blocks as a sub. Most stats are so close it's really splitting hairs. Main takeaway is his minutes and useage are pretty much the same no matter what so no need to worry about it. We have enough to worry about with all the injuries and whatnot...ha.

 

Yes, he was expected to miss this game so good see he is back and healthy.
