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.
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.
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.
#$%$, 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
Owners of Clarkson I could have sworn he had the SG eligibility before? Did yahoo take that away from him just recently? Or am I trippin and he never had the SG to begin with?
9 cat h2h daily. Looking at a few players that were dropped due to injury. Semi's this week and of course finals next week. Need opinions on who would be the better adds(if I can obtain off W/W): K.Martin,D.Howard,Noah & Lowry. Cat needs in order: assists,steals,Fg%,points and then RB's. Any suggestions appreciated.
Nope! Not worth the risk especially in a 10 team league where there's more FA talent. I've been made a fool TWICE picking him up in my 14 team league and the upside just isn't there. Even if he does come back he'll no doubt be in a min limit restriction as well as resting in back to back games. And from the sounds of things PG 13 does not feel comfortable coming back anytime soon.
I have a bye this week in my 10-team league and was wondering if I should add Paul George for a stash? I honestly don't know if he has any upside for the rest of the year but given his talent, might be worth a shot. I'm the 2nd seed and there's a chance the 6th seed can upset the 3rd seed due to injuries. If that happens, I could be patient for more than a week. So would you take a flier on Paul George?
1st of all, I personally like Galloway better for everything besides FG% an maybe TO's.
But Brandon, what you said doesnt makes sense to me? I'll admit I don't watch very much NYK basketball so maybe I'm wrong and you can correct me. But I've never really heard of a team resting their 23 year old, rookie, d league call up combo guard in the 4th quarter due to a blow out? Especially with Calderon gone for the year, Hardaway injured and Shved possibly going to miss time. Larkin is the only other real option and he's already getting 30+ MPG so I'm not really sure who they'd bench him in favor of? Teams usually want to give their young guys as much run as they can towards the end of a season, especially a lost season. In order to help develop them for next year, or to see if they even fit in the team's long term plans. Galloway played 43 minutes in a 21 point loss last game, and 38 minutes in a 17 point loss the game before that.
But like I said, I don't watch the Knicks so this is all conjecture from the stats.
You've got the edge, considering most of your guys have a penchant for double-doubles and possibly triples. More fill-ins on his side, more drafted guys on yours.
Scoring is based on the following categories: fg%, ft%, 3ptm, pts, reb, ast, steals, to, double double, and triple doubles.
My team: Aaaron Brooks, Kyle Korver, James Harden, Motijunas, Gasol, Millsap, Cousins, Gobert, Antetokounmpo, Butler, Carrol, Clarkson, Whiteside.
Other team: Kyrie, Kemba, Deron Williams, Jeff Green, Mirotic, Brandon Bass, Tyler Zeller, Brook Lopez, Schoeder, Rondo, Wilson Chandler, Ty Lawson, Steven Adams
If it makes you feel any better, in a 16 team h-2-h league that I was in I traded Melo for Aldridge/Calderon early on during the knee issue with Melo because I thought he'd get shut down and was ecstatic that I got that much value in return!! Then not very long after, Aldridge hurt his hand and the team announced he was out 6-8 weeks. My team wouldn't have been able to make a playoff run with LA on the bench, so I traded him for Jordan Hill (a decent step up from the best available FA, but still a big drop off lol) and what do you know?! 24 hours later they say, oops, nevermind Aldridge is going to still play, and dominate.
So at least you didn't give away Aldridge for basically nothing lol.
But yeah another 1 of my 18 team dynasty league teams just lost in the 1st round of the playoffs by a LOT. I wonder why? Here's some of my roster:
I Thomas INJ
LOL. When McLemore, Marcus Morris, Mozgov, Nurkic and Jeff Green are your only healthy players you are kinda screwed!
