    drop Taj Gibson? pickup Dwight?

    by Jon Mar 25, 2015 1:20 PM

    Even in a limited role I think Howard outperforms Gibson in the next 2 weeks, BUT he's also reported to not be playing in back to backs, and can still kill your FT% in a limited role, so you have to take that into consideration. 4 so-so type games from Gibson with good FT% might be more valuable than 2 games with bad FT% from Dwight?

    Need Help for Next Season

    by JAH 10 hours ago

    I definitely agree that JV has a ton of potential but am not 100% sure that Toronto will ever push him to that ceiling. There have been many games this year where for no real apparent reason they held his minutes in check. Games that had nothing to do with foul trouble, poor performance, injury or fatigue. It made a little sense earlier in his career when he was still adjusting to the NBA, but now it doesn't make sense to me. Hopefully they will fully unleash him next season. If not, I hope he gets traded.
    As far as the PG for C trade, like I said earlier I doubt someone will part with Gobert for Holiday unless they are really strong at PF/C and really need a PG but it's definitely worth trying. When healthy Jrue has great value. The Hill for Dieng trade IMO is much more likely to get accepted. Dieng has shown flashes of greatness but hasn't been as consistent with it as Gobert, and doesn't have the same hype around him so that manager probably won't value him on the same level as Gobert. And Hill has some nice stats this year. If that manager isn't worried about PG13 returning next year and ruining Hill's value they might go for that.
    Also, about Batum. Yes 99% of my frustration from him is because of nagging injuries. But once you get injured or play poorly through injuries so many times, that stops being an excuse for poor play, at least for me. This isn't the first season where Batum has shown pretty elite potential when healthy and then a bunch of total duds because of injuries, and Ipersonally don't think it's his last. I hope it is, because if he could sting together a couple seasons in a row where he's 100% healthy all 82 games he would become a VERY hot commodity.

    Thanks.... I think I'm looking at offering Holiday for Gobert or Hill for Dieng. We'll see if those work. I also agree that JV and Batum get old. But Batum is/was hurt this year. I've owned him on this team in the past and it's a great source of about every stat. I actually dealt Milsap for him the first few weeks. Wish I could take that back. And JV, he's still super young. I move Hibbert for him. I'm wiling to wait because I think he can be a consistent 18/10 guy once the Raptors realize what they have.

    Thanks for the info.

    Can I beat him in Final?

    If you end up dropping Martin, I'd pick up a healthy body rather than stash Jones. If you are going to stash a player I'd recommend stashing Martin over Jones. In that case I'd probably go with Tucker, or the player you can use the most.

    i agree that blocks sticks out as something to improve in. If PG13 comes back healthy net year I don't think you'll be that bad in 3PTM with IRving, THompson and George leading the way. I think targeting a young up and comer rim protector would be great. Gobert has shown he its your needs but also isn't going to come cheap in a dynasty league. With Jrue's injury concerns I'd honestly be surprised if the Gobert owner would agree to a HOliday for Gobert swap. But it's worth a try. Although when Holiday is healthy you have a very formidable PG lineup of Irving, Conley, Holiday and Lawson. Great mix of D stats, 3's, assists and scoring. I like building my team around PG's so I'd personally like to keep Jrue, especially if his trade value is low due to injury. I'd be more open to trading Hill. he obviously won't get you Gobert, but he could get you a good shot blocker or you could package him with someone else. As much as I like Batum and Valanciunas in real life, I get sick of relying on them in fantasy. They have great potential but lack consistency throughout the year. Even with Matthews out for the year, Batum has still struggled with consistency. While JV could just as easily put up 6 points with 12 boards as 12 points with 6 boards you just never know, and for a 7 footer he doesn't have many games with more more than 1 block. But they both still have great trade value... I"m not saying they are bad or not worth owning, but ifyou could flip them into someone mroe consistent then I would.
    Overall I really like this team. Very good depth at each position with nearly half your team having 2nd round or better upside.

    Just looking to next year. Here is my projected lineup. Any thoughts/concerns?

    3PTM and BLK are my worst Cats this year. REB was, but I've made up some ground. I'm thinking about trying to deal for a Gobert or Dieng. I'll probably try to deal Hill or Holiday, as G is my best asset.

    PG Kyrie Irving Cle - PG,SG
    SG Klay Thompson GS - SG,SF
    G Paul George Ind - SG,SF
    SF Rudy Gay Sac - SF,PF
    PF Al Horford Atl - PF,C

    C DeMarcus Cousins Sac - PF,C
    C Blake Griffin LAC - PF,C
    Util Nicolas Batum Por - SG,SF
    Util Mike Conley Mem - PG

    BN Marcin Gortat Was - C

    i'm playing in a standard non-keeper league; however, we are using the FAAB rolling tie break list - i have 3rd highest amount to spend, the highest is the 2nd place guy who has a bye and hopefully isn't checking this week. so hopefully there's a chance I can pick him back up, especially with how everyone is concerned with the out indefinitely verbiage used

    by mike Mar 26, 2015 2:56 PM

    I doubt you'd be able to pick him up again. With only 3 days left in this week, someone will be confident enough that they will win this week's matchup and take a chance on Lowry being healthy for next week and use a waiver claim on him. At least that's my best guess. If I were in a non keeper league and was still contending and saw that Lowry was dropped, I would have to be 5000% confident in my team as is stands to not take a chance on Lowry. He's just TOO good when healthy to let someone else snag him.
    I don't blame you for dropping him, especially with the news that he's out again tonight and has no other games this week. But I wouldn't hold my breathe hoping to pick him up again if you advance.
    I'm only a part o 1 non-keeper/dynasty league this year and in that league the team owning Lowry has already been eliminated, but I would guess that in most leagues Lowry has been dropped by managers unsure if they'll win this week, and kept by managers confident they can win this week's matchup without him.

    next question.. has anyone picked him up? is it plausible that I can pick him up at the start of next week? I think he'll be back by then lol - I had to drop him to maximize stats for this week to try and advance

    Playoff Players

    by David Vest Mar 24, 2015 6:20 PM

    All are great options when healthy, so it baically just comes down to who is, or you think will be healthy first?
    Howard is back but is playing limited minutes and probably not on back to back nights. He's a risky add IMO.
    Noah will probably have limited minutes too, but he's out there and is a better option in a limited role than Howard is, to me. He can still rack up the assists and rebs.
    Martin isn't back yet, but is very close I think. He'd be my choice to have best overall value considering the limited roles of the others, BUT his best stats are not the ones you are looking for.
    Lowry, when healthy fitsyour criteria almost in order you have it listed. He's the best option for your squad IF healthy.

    Jordan Clarkson SG eligibility

    by Pika_Stache Mar 25, 2015 1:48 PM

    That's funny, they bleeped out a three letter abbreviation for a swear word. That's taking the censorship a bit far isn't it? I can't remember who, but I remember last year trying to type a players name and it kept getting bleeped!
    Maybe this will work, with spaces... #$%$. Or Double you, tee, eff. lol.

    by Space7 Mar 22, 2015 8:47 PM

    To me it looks like Martin is the only injured player on your squad (besides PG) and it sounds like he is close to returning. But on his team he has Beverley and Shved out for sure, Knight getting close to coming back but hasn't returned yet and even before that wasn't quite as dominant as he was in MIL, Hayward out and not likely to be rushe back, Jefferson limping to the finish and could go out any given night, OR go off for great numbers, that one's a #$%$ shoot, and Henson being underutilized in MIL in a 10- 15 MPG role.
    I think when healthy his team would beat you, or at least give you a big run for your money, but with those injuries I think as long as the majority of your guys put up their basline type numbers you will win by default.

    Jordan Clarkson SG eligibility

    by Pika_Stache Mar 25, 2015 1:48 PM

    #$%$, now I need to know this too. I own him in a league and I honestly can't remember. Half of my brain says he MOST definitely had SG eligibility, but the other half can't really recall for 100% sure. lol. IF he did have it, and Yahoo took it away recently then that would be rather odd timing. I don't get many Lakers games (I do have league pass but being on the East coast I don't really feel like waiting until 1030PM to start watching a lottery team play lol) but I was fairly certain that Clarkson had been starting at PG with Lin coming off the bench. And now that both are starting, they are pretty interchangable.
    So if anything I would think he should have had just PG eligibility earlier, and both PG/SG now?!
    Anyways, good luck in your quest of figuring this out! lol
