Nikola Jokic 2018-19 Season Outlook


Recommended Posts

Got Jokic at 6 in a 14 teamer, think it went well even though I was sniped at a couple of spots. Went full punt blocks for the very first time. 

 

Jokic

Jrue - beast mode after DMC went down last year. Expecting big things from him in the fastest pace in the league. 

Bledsoe - essentially Jrue-like stats the last 2 months of the season but with more steals. Excellent %s with PG stats to boot. Was aiming to get Middleton here but was ecstatic to get Bledsoe as well. Plus upside for the coach Bud factor.

Doncic - my first reach, this was around pick 50 but I know he won’t be getting back to me before my next pick. Excellent preseason sealed it for me. 

Kanter - he is very crucial to this build and had no hesitations reaching for him. 

Hield

Saric - by this point my %s we’re dominant and I was willing to take Trae Young here for the volume points and threes but got sniped. The homie was a nice consolation prize as he fits the punt blocks build like a glove. Underrated rebounder as a high floor low ceiling guy. 

Nance

Baze - underrated 3s/steals guys who’ll get a lot of minutes. 

Siakam - my favorite late round sleeper. People here are hyping Levert so much (check his thread lol) but I personally think Siakam deserves more attention. He’s a stud. 

Bullock - not sure if he was the right choice over Osman, but he already performed last year and I needed a surefire 3s boost on good percentage. 

Hernangomez

Ellington

 

For the last two picks, kicking myself because looking back I should’ve gotten Giles and Miles Bridges instead but I took the safer route. I’ll just be monitoring the first game intently ready to trigger.

There’s more to it than this, that’s a very simplified way of looking at this I don’t think you can compare Cousins or Love to Jokic for many reasons, but the biggest difference is the efficiency. I d

sad he delivered this gem and i may still lose due to less games played in a tight matchup   anyways...  

Very much like him to be thrown out of the game for a temper tantrum. Frustrating player to own. No wonder I gave him a nickname last year - "Fat f---".

first time owning jokic. such a fun player to watch, seems like he touches the ball on every possession and at least records a stat. what's the perfect build with jokic?

Looks VERY similar to my roster. I also have Teague, Mirotic and Tobias Harris and Capela in place of Gobert

I had Jokic and CP3 as my keepers, rest of the league took more than 2 keepers so i got some good picks and managed to snag a first 4 picks of

Jokic

CP3

Draymond green

Gobert

 

I think ill laugh my way to the title this year since i managed to grab guys like G harris, J rich real late in the drafts too

 

Running the same 1, 2, 3 out in a punt PTS build.  Couldn’t grab Gobert too bc it’s a 13-teamer but you look set, so long as you’re not expecting to win PTS and leaning towards efficiency.

Nah flat out punt points and even punt FT, i didnt focus on tanking FT just ignored it, absolutley solid in REB BLK STL AST FG% TO so i dont care about the rest, and im talking like a +7 and +6 in BLK and STL with a +2 to +3 in the rest hahaha

Took Jokic 7th in a h2h, 8-cat, 16 teamer last night. Not going to list my whole draft since this is the Jokic thread, but after running various scenarios in my mind I found that Jokic, Kemba, Harris was my ideal start. With that start I felt I'd be able to pivot multiple ways. Those 3 give a nice base in really all stats except blocks. With the ft% of those guys, I could afford a lower volume shot blocker or two, but I could still punt blocks. Personally, Kemba went a pick or two before me so I settled on Middleton. Also keep in mind mine is a 16 teamer so most of you can look at a better player or two, but making up some points while adding to Jokic's strong rebs, assists, and %'s was a goal of mine.

Grabbed jokic at 8 and paired him with Embiid at 13.  Love it an not looking back

 

Punting TO’s I take it.  The only thing that bothers me about this pairing is not knowing which way to go with building out your roster.  Will have to take BPA for a couple more rounds, at which point there are less opportunities to mine value derived from punting a specific stat in H2H cat leagues.

My league does not count TO.  Yes it was a BPA for next couple (Lowry and Mitchell) and then I found it difficult to fill out roster with weakened forwards remaining.  Will need to work the wire in the early going.

hope pairing jokic with kawhi was the right move. thinking about him and simmons seems like a crazy triple double team.

Kawhi pairs well with any player his line has zero holes, his assists are even pretty good for a sg/sf

Must be a first time Jokic owner..

 

Patience.

 

Agreed, can’t belueve someone was upset with this guy lol. Jokic was dormant for large stretches and still put up 21-8-5 with a three block and steal + great ft%. He’s a fantasy machine.

I love watching him against Gortat. Jokic will sell a few calls and it gets Gortat so riled up.

 

Side note, I get frustrated watching Barton as a Jokic owner.

 

I was thinking the same thing watching the game last night.  Barton is a talented scorer for sure but a bit of a black hole once he gets it and is not near the cutter that Harris and Murray are so not giving Jokic a chance for those pretty dimes...
