Me right now reading through this thread after dropping him this weekend    

Calling it right now. He'll lead the NBA in blocks this year.                         And steals, and points, and rebounds, and 3s, and

I'm close to dropping him for Gallinari. Should I keep TJ Warren or Chriss? 

AC forum, but if your league is so weak that Gallo is on waivers you don't need to be in here getting advice tbh. just win

in the end, it wasn't that bad a line.
but he's not getting 10 rebounds and 4 assists very often



He's going to go off some nights and not show up other nights. A night like tonight was a rare OK game for him.

I’ll take that line any day all day from him, especially with 2 steals and 1 block... :)

yeah that's the one thing that has me holding him. its hard finding guys with threes/blocks. so much potential.

Yup, my thoughts exactky. IMO, he’s still a hold in standard 12 teams...

1. He's ranked 92nd overall in 9 cat so far this year. That is 8th round production in 12 team leagues.

2. He has at least 1 block in 7 of 8 games, with average of 1.4 blocks per game.

3. He is averaging 0.9 3s and 0.9 steals per game.

4. He is a 2nd year player on a bad team with uninspiring competition for minutes.



1. He is probably going to get better as the season goes on, as he is 20 years old. Especially once the Suns miss the playoffs and start prioritizing their young guys more.

2. Related to point (1), he's only averaging 20.5 minutes per game. I know per-36 is a controversial projection metric but his per-36 numbers would be around 12.8 points, 7.5 boards, 2.6 ast, 1.5 steals, 2.5 blocks, 1.5 steals. That's basically Myles Turner numbers last year and he was a top 25 player. Again...huge grain of salt here. But just thought i'd bring up what he can accomplish with 30+ mins per game.

3. Points and rebounds are generally easier to improve upon with more minutes/playing time. It seems reasonable that he can at least maintain his steals/blocks/3s with more playing time, and that he would improve his points and boards.


TL:DR hang onto him. Even if he doesn't improve at all this season (unlikely) he'll still be a top 100 guy which is worth a roster spot
