1/10 from the field is something shocking, worst first career game ever
Hope he can do much better next time

 

I can think of far worse games for a rookie including games where the rookie doesn't get on the floor and isn't allowed to chuck up 10 shots.

This forum turns into a hot take fest over the first few weeks of the season. After that, casuals stop logging on or playing fantasy altogether and we can get back to quality posts.

Some truth, but plenty of terrible takes on here throughout the season. People are generally pretty bad at not being prisoners of the moment whenever that is

I think people tend to forget that the first few weeks of fantasy tend to be a wash since a lot of players are still getting up to speed. 

Sure, some stay bad but it's ridiculous how many terrible transactions happen in this window since a lot overreact to a game or a week of play. 

It's a long season and just cause you're losing 2-7 in the first week doesn't mean you drop everyone or blow it up, yeesh.

It’s the first game, he was in Toronto (his hometown), rookie jitters, and some of his shots looked good and rattled in and out. He hits a couple of those threes and you’re looking at a potential 14/4/4/2 line or more because he didn’t play the entire quarter.

Whats glossed over in this is that jrue was terrible, and that’s because Lowry and fvv are dogs. They should give him combo guard minutes, he’s a big PG, not sure why he only played exclusively behind holiday.

I’m holding for a good while because the potential is tantalizing. He’s one jrue trade, Lonzo injury from major production. He’s still got a path to minutes as we speak. Hart is a good player and relatively young himself, but he’s a role player, nickeil can be a core piece for them for years to come. I laugh seeing all the people panic drop when I click research on yahoo! I wish they were in my league.

 

He looked absolutely electric on both ends, and soon the shots will start to fall and the minutes might start to rise.

honestly think most people post bad info and doom and gloom in most threads to try and drive players value down and try and buy low.


Wow. Lol...I actually never saw it this way. Didn’t think ppl would be going this much “art of war” with their fantasy b-ball.

I would’ve loved to keep him, he’s got a bit more mid season appeal currently.

I just couldn’t pass up Nunn or Devonte Graham because the minutes are there and they don’t have 5 other guards to deal with.

I absolutely love his talent.

If he was playing some combo guard minutes I would keep him, I didn’t like that he’s playing strictly behind Jrue.

Exactly.  Nunn and Graham are excellent pickups as well and seem more immediate value.   It's shaping up nicely this year with waiver guys like PJ, NAW, Fultz, Graham, Nunn, etc etc.

Same. If it stays the same next game, dropping for a hot guard, unfortunately.

Same here. Definitely want to see what his line and minutes look like if he's hitting his shots but this is the time of the year with all the hot waiver pickups

dude.. knee issues for Jrue 2 days into the season?? That's a red flag..

I won't run to add Nickeil yet - today is a strong watch day, it's wait and see for me. He looks a little shaky out there with his shooting at the NBA level, and we don't know if this is just a game to game thing.

Can really see the difference in types of owners between those that are and aren't interested in this guy. Even when he was running hot in the preseason, it was clear he didn't have a path to minutes. That may be changing pending Jrue's health, but he's not close to fantasy relevance when the team is healthy.
