To add here, Nurk just out with an ankle sprain, potentially one of those "high ankle sprains", and MoHark left with a thigh contusion. Aminu could be looking at heavy minutes there.  Doesn't ALW

Past 2 teams (Houston/LAC) have forced Aminu / Harkless / Nurk to take the shots to beat them.   If that’s how opposing teams roll till the end of the regular season then Aminu will have a c

He's always been really inconsistent. I think Noah Vonleh will get his starting spot back soon - he was a really good duo with Nurk, and it might get Nurk back on the rails as well. 

First year doing roto and he seems to be pretty valuable.  Never paid all that much attention to him in my h2h leagues in years past.

 

Is he doing something different this year, or has he always been this valuable in roto?  He's been in the league for a while so seems odd that things would "click" this late into his career...

Does he only shoot threes? Lol 

 

not complaining at all but seems like that’s his offensive game. Haven’t watched him play though 

 

He’s basically the Ryan Anderson of the Trail Blazers..sits in the corners as an outlet for CJ and Lillard drives and bombs threes when it comes to him. I think he can hit 2-3 a game ROS

he always contributes with something - stocks, rebounds, three's

but the fg% has not been nice lately and that early season excellence is probably not going to be the norm.

 

i've passed up guys that i probably should have dropped him for and i'm not sure i'll continue to do so.

Dude's value took a nose dive. Getting less shots without dame setting him up too. 

Story of his career. Flashes of brilliance, then non-existence.

He is very inconsistent but he has big upside on a week to week basis. People that owned him in fantasy playoffs last year know that he can be a game changer, he regularly put up lines like last night for a 2-3 week period, with still the occasional dud thrown in during that time.

 

My advice is to hold ROS, because he will always get the minutes, and he has big upside...he's a lot like mirotic actually

you guys still holding?

 

minutes are there and he plays better w/ Dame on the floor, so i'll hold. but not a must hold i think, if you're in the playoff chase and got players like delon on the wire, id drop. all depends on your standing/league/etc.

Most inconsistent player in the league probably. A lot will drop now and next game he prolly drop like 20 and 8 with 5 threes. He is super annoying but one of those guys you just hope has a few games where he goes off raining 3s in playoffs.
