I am high on him this season (probably higher than most). Frankly there is a lot to like if you are an optimist. He has bounce back written all over him. 

1) They are going to ride this dude into the ground as a one year replacement for Nurkic. As I blazers fan, I know what kind of defensive sets they prefer and Whiteside was a good of an option that could realistically be acquired on the open market. They have almost no viable C depth and I expect him to play 26-29 mins, which is more than enough playing time to be very valuable as a middle round big (esp in punt ft builds). 

2) He's in a contract year and we all know what that means. See Vooch last year (and others). Realistically, this is probably his last chance to earn a sizable contract of any term and dollars.  

3) He seems to be motivated to shine after a tough spell in the dog house in Miami (most of which was self earned). He's already stated he wants to lead the league in blocks and rebs and I like when players talk like that.

I'm taking the over on all of his counting stats. I conservatively think he'll average 14 PPG-14 RPG- 1 APG-0.8 STL-2.5 BLK-57% FGs-1.5 TOS

Anomaly? I beg to differ sir. All the numbers he is putting up this year are not out of the ordinary for whiteside. He has averaged more points and rebounds in 2017, more blks in 2016. More efficient

You guys treating him like a sell high?

I personally would not. Some people are worried about Nukic's return. Nurk isnt going to be rushed back and when he play's he'll likely be on a heavy mins restriction with no B2B's. Whiteside was one of the best value's this year in drafts. Its probably prudent to just ride him out into the sunshine, unless someone overpays (thinking a top 25 player).

im 90% sure Hassan stat counts while playing lol I swear I've seen him look up at the players stat board multiple times. ideal for fantasy hahahaha 

 

He totally does tho. All he cares about is his 2K video game rating. But for fantasy it works.
