If you need Otto to save your day then your team name should be Otto draft.

[Wojnarowski] Sources confirm Otto Porter Jr has been forced into retirement by angry fantasy players. Porter had tomatoes thrown at him when arriving at almost every airport in America. 

You all holding on for so long to this dude and now when his return is imminent you drop?

Otto is too good to suck, but what is up with Bulls rotation? Is this team the new 18-19 Nets? Their new coach seems obsessed with keeping everyone under 30 minutes.

but the 15 games last year, sameish rotation. think its fine. he ballllled out. i was excited for him this year tbh lol

 

traded dlo for him thinking i fleeced, but not so much....

The problem with Otto, if it’s H2H, is that he also has a poor playoff schedule.  So if you can swing a decent offer, like Washington it’s not the worst, because even if Otto improves to top 50 he still has a poor playoff schedule. I wouldn’t sell lower than a top 75 player with a decent schedule though.

If Otto improves, then you can sell him for his actual value and get better player than offers being thrown around for Porter right now.

True.  Maybe.  I wasn’t the one selling low.  I’m not able to secure what I would require to sell him.

And that is a big if. After watching Bull's this year (my eyes are still hurting) it is clear to me that Otto is 3rd option on offense at best. Thad Young is also taking away backup PF minutes. Dont even mention the coach. Game starts and Bulls stick to the game plan and Otto produces as we all expected. By mid 2nd Zach, Lauri and White are all in "me first " mode and Otto is basically ignored on offense. I just don't see Otto returning value we expected from 4th -5th pick this year. If PJ doesn't produce down the road I have no problem dropping him. I do think he will finish better than 197th (current Otto ranking

Otto was always third option. Even in his wizard days behind wall and Beal at times markeiff and gortat. He was still able to put up great early mid round.

usage rate/FGA:

2019/20: 16.5% - 8.8
2018/19: 20.4% - 13.4     with Chicago,
2019/19: 17.7% - 10.8 with Washington
2017/18: 18.2% - 11.5
2016/17: 14.7% - 10

His usage is down so far this year. It seems that LaVine, Lauri, , WCJ, Thad Young are all ahead of Otto on offense.  Minutes are down too  (25.8).  I am assuming he is  not injured because he is playing. If he is injured it is even worse (great job Chicago).
I just don't trust Boylen to fix his offence and team rotations so  Otto gets  more touches.   

Plus, there is advantage of not having to decide every time he is playing: should I start him or bench him.

I've made my decision, was it correct one it remains to be seen. So far I am enjoying PJ bandwagon

Otto will come good. Always does. Can't wait for the regret posts 

lol I heard that a lot last year so I held on.

In the end, that decision burned me badly in playoff after he was shut down.

His hip is still not 100% this year and with the way Bulls are playing.....I wouldnt be surprised if he is shut down again in spring.

Pretty sure he will come around but no way he replicates his 16-18 form.

I'm sorry you wasted an early pick on Otto Porter, but there's no reason to take it out on his teammates. He's a shooter, not a scorer.

Yes bro I feel that but I’m surprised this thread isn’t going bonkers Rn. Ppl were saying this guy is done and his hip ruined him blah blah my penis. I know it’s only 1 game but I’m watching this game on league pass and he looks a lot quicker and is more actively looking to score.
