It’s a very shallow league (6 teams, friends), so there is a plethora of good guards, but most of them are consistent. Some notable ones are: Evan Turner, Kemba Walker, Dorell Wright, Darren Collison, S-Jax, Jameer Nelson, Jared Dudley, Wilson Chandler, Nate Robinson, Alonzo Gee, Klay Thompson, Courtney Lee, Sessions, Isaiah Thomas, Jordan Crawford, OJ Mayo

Jordan Crawford is must-own material. This week the Warriors have 5 games, which could mean a monster week for Nate Rohinson and Klay Thompson. Soon Sessions will be must-start but the other three guys I listed are safer for the time being. The no brainer option would have been Evan Turner before Jrue Holiday’s breakout game last night. what are you looking for a short term? long term? position? category?

Sounds good D-Rock, enjoyed the chat and look forward to talking another time. I would go with Jordan Crawford.

Hey Mutra! Hope all is well. I have several players on my chopping block and they include Elton Brand, Nick Young and Paul George. On my waiver wire, there is felton, Jamal Crawford, wes matthews, jason thompson, and wilson chandler. Are any of these guys worth picking up?
muntradamus

March 18, 2012 – 8:25 pm
Welcome to the chat Blazers. None of the guys you listed are players that you have to run after to own. With the being said Nick Young could be droppable. What do you need more assists, points, rebounds, 3PTM, Steals, Blocks? And what positions are you weak at?
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 8:28 pm
I’m in a h2h league and looking for a scorer (points). I’m not really weak at any position at the moment, except for Centers. But I have recently added Biyombo to fill the void I had earlier.
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 8:30 pm
Would Spencer Hawes be worth a look?
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 8:31 pm
He’s on my waiver wire as well

@D-Rock: I kinda envy your FA lineup… in a 10-team league, you cant find good players in the FA… I’d pick up Nate, Klay, Turner or Crawford for Batum…
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:33 pm
@sarap. True that, in a 6 team league the FA situation is a dream.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:34 pm
@Blazers I would not pickup Spencer Hawes. He is going to sit out random games, and not play back-to-backs for the time being. The 76ers are a different offense since the start of the season.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:34 pm
The decision is between Crawford and Matthews.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:35 pm
Matthews should be more consistent and give you a solid 15 Points with a bit of everything.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:36 pm
Crawford has the potential for 20 Points, be he also has the potential for 1/8 FG game.
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 8:36 pm
Thanks Muntra. Also, should I try to trade Young? Maybe seek Ramon Sessions instead?
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:36 pm
Matthews will see more consistent minutes. Crawford could have bigger games.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:37 pm
Not a bad idea. Ramon Sessions has low value right now as there are rumors that he could be coming off the bench the rest of the season. I think he will still see 30 Minutes easily.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:37 pm
Definitely try it, but do not expect it to be accepted.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:38 pm
Paul George is also a nice player to sell high on, the Pacers have so many scoring options it will be hard for George to be consistent. Add Barbosa to the mix and you got another guy who wants 10 shot attempts off the bench.
muntradamus

March 18, 2012 – 8:39 pm
Any lineup questions?
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 8:39 pm
Other than Biyombo and Walker, who are the fantasy sleepers for playoffs?
sarapmoboy

March 18, 2012 – 8:41 pm
@Muntra: you mentioned not to pick Hawes as he sits in some games. Manu is in my team, and I think Pop’s plan is to sit Duncan, TP and Manu in most games as precaution, especially if the Spurs already clinch playoffs. Should they be dropped as the fantasy playoff nears?
sarapmoboy

March 18, 2012 – 8:43 pm
Why is Serge Ibaka’s minutes are always limited, considering he’s more productive than Perkins and Nick Collison?…
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:45 pm
@Blazers I really like Tristan Thompson. I hope the Cavs find a way to get him in that lineup even when Varejao returns. He is the starting center currently and played 35+ Minutes in his first start. Brandon Knight should also be a beast come fantasy playoff time. As soon as Stuckey stops this hot streak, Knight’s will begin. More to come on this as we inch closer to the playoffs. Isaiah Thomas is another name, Jordan Crawford is my early fantasy playoff MVP candidate.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:47 pm
@sarap I would not drop any of those guys until you get official word that these guys will get DNPs. At this point I would have expected Duncan to have way more DNPs and it seems like he never sits.
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 8:48 pm
What do you expect from Stephen Curry for the rest of this year and next year?
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:48 pm
Serge Ibaka, I wish I could tell you. I would be very frustrated if I had to deal with coach Brooks. Hopefully next season he starts seeing 30+ every night, and he will be way undervalued come draft day next season.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:48 pm
Collison and Perkins are nothing compared to Ibaka.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 8:50 pm
@Blazers. Stephen Curry will be shut down soon. The Warriors need a top 7 Pick in next years draft to keep it. That means the Warriors do not want to win anymore, just sell tickets with Nate Robinson. Next Season Curry should be a fantasy beast. No more Monta Ellis means the offense is all his. I think the Warriors gave up on the Ellis/Curry combo way too quickly. They never had the chance to really practice together all season, or during the shortened lockout pre-season. That was the top guard duo in the league from a fantasy and talent stand point.

Do you think the Clippers have any chance to win the title?
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 8:56 pm
@muntradamus: I don’t think they do. Their bench isn’t deep enough for it. Nick young should be fine along with williams, but I don’t see them going all the way. Maybe next year once they reshape the team a little bit.
muntradamus

March 18, 2012 – 8:58 pm
Ya I really felt to start the season when Billups was with them they had a real chance. For some reason they stopped playing DeAndre Jordan 30+ Minutes and nobody filled Billups void at SG. What is your sleeper team to win it all?
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 9:01 pm
I really think the pacers are going to go far. Hibbert, George, West, Granger, are all beasts and post up solid numbers. George hill and now with Barbosa, the pacers seem to be a really hot team going into the playoffs
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 9:01 pm
I also like the chances of the Sixers making it far as well
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 9:02 pm
interesting pick with the Pacers. Too bad all of those guys cancel each other out as fantasy options, especially when you add Collison to that group.
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 9:03 pm
Speaking of 76ers do you think Jrue Holiday is ready to breakout after taking 27 FG attempts? He is an easy candidate for bust of the season so far with Gerald Wallace.
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 9:04 pm
I am uneasy with Holiday. Especially with how he has been performing as of late. I personally think he’ll continue slumping while Evan Turner will take advantage of this.
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 9:05 pm
And I’m definitely glad to have picked up Turner. He’s been putting up great numbers
JHillinger

March 18, 2012 – 9:05 pm
Hey Muntradamus! Thank you for the feedback and for everything you’re doing with the forum. I posted in the Trade Analyzer about my team and Okafur. I see Wilson Chandler is back – I already missed him in my other league but in the one I posted about, he’s wide open. Should I grab him or Alonzo Gee?
muntradamus

muntradamus
March 18, 2012 – 9:07 pm
Welcome to the chat J, appreciate the kind words. It is fine you missed out on Chandler, I am not too excited about him. He has to battle Harrington and Andre Miller for PT off the bench. Then he has to compete with Farried, Gallo, and Afflalo in the starting 5. Consistency will be an issue. Alonzo Gee is solid and really making a name for himself. I would pick him up without hesitation.
blazers007

March 18, 2012 – 9:07 pm
@JHillinger: I’d personally pick up Gee right away. Chandler is going to be in a crowded line-up. Whereas Gee has been putting up excellent numbers as of late
———————————————————————————————————————————–

WAIVER WIRE:

*Ranked in order to grab off the waiver wire.

Jordan Crawford- With no more Nick Young, Jor Craw will get the chance to put up a show every night.  Even if he is having a bad game.  Crawford can really light up the stat sheet like a 3rd round value player.  He was also fantasy playoff MVP of last season.  A candidate to do it once again this season.  Must-Own in all Leagues.

Luke Ridnour – Double-Double in Assists can be expected pretty much every night.  If he is still a FA grab him.  Must-Own in all Leagues.

Bismack Biyombo- His performances have not been so spectacular lately, but he is still grabbing double digit rebounds and playing 30 Minutes.  He will be a block machine come playoff time.  Must-Own in all Leagues.

Klay Thompson- Klay is the future of GS, and that means 40 Minutes and 15+ Shot attempts a night.  He will knock down a lot of 3PTM, and score around 20 a game.  Must-Own in all Leagues.

Nate Robinson– Golden State needs to sell tickets with this terrible squad.  Stephen Curry is almost out for the season, and Nate will score 15+ with 5+ Assists every night with intangibles.  Must-Own in all Leagues.

Jared Dudley– The Dud master is thriving as the starting SG.  20+ Points with rebounds and 3PTM have been happening every night.  He is a fantastic asset on any fantasy team.  Must-Own in all 8 Team Leagues.

Ramon Sessions- Coach Brown said Sessions will come off the bench possibly the rest of the season.  Not only do I not believe it, but he should still see more minutes than Steve Blake.  Anything less than 30 Minutes before the end of next week is considered a disappointment.  He should grab double digit assists soon and be a huge fantasy asset.  Otherwise the Lakers made bad trades to win the title.  Must-Own in all 8 Team Leagues.

Jerryd Bayless- If Bayless was handed the keys already he would be on top of this list.  Calderon should be back soon, but 30+ Minutes should still be expected.  He can do enough damage in that time, he will probably be a starter again before the season is over.  Must-Own in 10 Team Leagues.

Goran Dragic– You may only get one more week after this shortened 3 game week, but he is still good for 10 Assists every night making him must-start material for the time being.

Tristan Thompson- Starting at center will make Thompson a fantasy beast.  It is unclear what his role will be when Varejao returns, and that is why he is not ranked higher on this list.  Until then he will be must-start material for the time being.

Alonzo Gee- Gee is a solid 16/6 every game.  The Cavs appear committed to give him the opportunities to thrive.  However things can get dicey when Anderson Varejao returns.  Until then, expect consistent production.  Must-Own in 10 Team Leagues.

Wesley Matthews- Matthews is now a starter, which means 15+ Points with a few intangibles every night.  He is a good option, not great.  He still has a lot of people to compete with for shot attempts.  If you have the roster space pick him up.  Must-Own in 12 Team Leagues.

D.J. Augustin- Somebody needs to pick up the scoring for Charlotte, and D.J. is coming off a nice 23 Point game.  The Assists should always be there, if the scoring reaches double digits consistently he will be startable in all leagues.  Must-Own in 12 Team Leagues.

Raymond Felton- He could grab 10 Assists every now and then.  He can also have horrendous games.  I would personally look for better options, but he does have some nice solid potential with a Blazer lineup w/o Wallace or Camby.  Must-Own in 12 Team Leagues.

Isaiah Thomas- Isaiah is back to getting those 30 Minutes.  He could lose it again, but it looks like Sacramento is committed to seeing what the rookie can bring to this team.  Thomas would be a much better option if Evans or Thornton took some games off.  He should be a huge factor come fantasy playoff time.   Must-Own in 12 Team Leagues.

Brandon Bass- With Chris Wilcox out for the season, there is no reason for him not to be a double-double machine every night.  If that is what you need, then pick him up if he is still on your waiver wire.  Consistency has been a problem.  Must-Own in 12 Team Leagues.

Jamal Crawford- Jamal could see 30+ Minutes, he could also see a terrible FG% and a majority of games you would wish he was never in your lineup.  Knee tendinitis is no joke, and there will be some random DNP’s to really make him an inconsistent option.  Crawford has potential as a fantasy star, but the Blazers are a team that has shown they do not trust him to be a winner.  Inconsistent with good games.  Must-Own in 12 Team Leagues.

Wilson Chandler- Chandler is coming off the bench with Al Harrington and Andre Miller.  He has to beat out Danilo Gallinari, Aaron Afflalo, and Kenneth Faried for playing time.  Then he has to hope to come off the bench before Harrington and Miller.  It is going to be hard for him to see 30+ Minutes consistently.  Though his potential is very high.  Must-Own in 12 Team Leagues.

Jason Kidd– Coming off a 10 Assist performance, he is back on the fantasy radar.  I would wait to see him have another couple strong performances before grabbing him.  If he does well, pick him up as he could be a huge X-Factor on your roster as he brings the Mavericks into the playoffs. Must-Own in 12 Team Leagues.

Kenneth Faried- If Faried saw 30 Minutes a game consistently he would be must-own in all leagues.  With the news of Chandler joining the team, and soon Javale McGee on the roster.  It is going to be hard for Faried to see consistent playing time, especially with Al Harrington coming off the bench behind him.  The potential for a fantasy superstar is there.  For now he better for benches or the waiver wire.  Ownable in 12 Team Leagues.

Kirk Hinrich- Now a full-time starter Hinrich gets 30+ Minutes.  He is still not that great of a player, but he can give you a decent amount of assists and a couple 3PTM every game.  You can do a lot worse than owning him, but you can also do a lot better. Ownable in 12 Team Leagues.

J.R. Smith- J.R. is turning into a 3PTM machine.  Under coach Woodson he is seeing good consistent minutes, and taking over 5 3PT shots a game.  He already hit 7 this week, and after averaging 33 a game in China.  You have to pick him up with his upside.  Ownable in 12 Team Leagues.

Jason Thompson- Thompson has been playing well as of late.  Though DeMarcus Cousins has been playing like a bonehead getting in foul trouble every moment he can.  Thompson has improved by leaps and bounds, but I would expect him to return to mediocrity when Cousins gets his game back. Ownable in 12 Team Leagues.

Start’em

Jeff Teague-( 5 Games) for Teague can be some serious damage.  He is playing 35+ Minutes every game consistently and is racking up steals with the best of them.  He may not score more than 12 a game, but he will get enough of everything else to be a great start over 5 games.

Zaza Pachulia- (5 Games) Zaza has been inconsistent this season, but he is a starting center in the NBA with no depth behind him.  It is very possible that Zaza can grab 50 Rebounds this week which makes him an intriguing option if you need the stat.

Nate Robinson- (5 Games) Mighty Nate is ready to explode in another full week of being the starting PG for the Warriors.  5 Games is plenty for Nate to score nearly 90 Points with at least 25 Assists.  Big week ahead.

Luol Deng- (4 Games) Deng has the chance to be the man for Chicago with no Derrick Rose for possibly the entire week.  He is already must-start, but if you were having doubts because of poor play, put them to rest.

Klay Thompson- (5 Games) Klay is the franchise for the Warriors.  He can easily score 100 Points, and 15 3PTM if he has a good week all-around.  He continues to see 40 Minutes a game which shows he has tremendous potential to be a must-start in all leagues.  Especially with 5 games.

Dorrell Wright- (5 Games)  Dorrell is starting to play consistent.  Which is a sentence I have not used in sometime.  Richard Jefferson does bring a threat to his consistency in the upcoming future, but in 5 games Dorrell can easily grab 30 Rebounds and knock down 15 3PTM.  Start him if you got him.

 

Sit’em

Derrick Rose- (4 Games) Rose might play this weekend, he might not.  Too risky of an option to trust with that being the case and he will be on my bench.  If I owned him.

Jameer Nelson- (3 Games) Jameer has been playing great, but I would bench him for a respectable guard with more games.  Even for Bayless who may be coming off the bench.  There is an outside chance the Magic blowout either Phoenix or Cleveland at home which would limit his minutes in an already shortened week.

Jason Richardson- (3 Games) J-Rich is inconsistent as is, with three games, one clunker would really ruin his week.  He should get plenty of minutes, but a blowout against Phoenix or Cleveland would end all of that.

Hedo Turkoglu – (3 Games) Turkoglu in 3 games is a bit risky as the Magic should blowout either Phoenix or Cleveland at home.  Take into the fact that he has scored less than 10 points multiple times in the past couple of weeks, and the risk factor is a bit high for my liking.

Isaiah Thomas – (3 Games) Thomas is finally starting to look good again.  Thanks to the injury of Tyreke Evans.  However in a shortened week I would be hesitant to start him.  He could have a good game, but he could also have two lousy games.  Bench him.

Mario Chalmers- (3 Games) Never have been a Mario Chalmers fan to begin with.  He is not a consistent option and he does not get many 3PTM or steals to make a huge difference.  I would bench him this week in a 3 game week, even drop him for any of the players I listed on the waiver wire report.

Kevin Martin- (3 Games) If anyone lost fantasy value being injured besides Calderon, it was definitely Kevin Martin.  Martin now has to compete with Courtney Lee to be a fantasy superstar this week.  If he even plays this week.  Bench him.

Jason Thompson- (3 Games) Thompson is a risky start to begin with.  Add into the fact he has 3 games and he has to be on your bench.

Samuel Dalembert(3 Games) Dalembert gets to welcome Marcus Camby into his playing time.  With Patrick Patterson already competing for PT is it going to be a tough uphill battle.  Three game is also a bit alarming for someone who is trouble breaking 30+ Minutes.

Chandler Parsons- (3 Games) Parsons owners, meet Chase Budinger.  You are looking at a timeshare if Parsons is able to play this week.  His value is going to drop quickly as Chase is a much better shooter, and that is what the Rockets need.

Corey Maggette- (3 Games) Maggette is a risky option with only three games this week.  He has been playing great lately scoring 20+ Points consistently, though he is looking doubtful for Monday meaning he only has two games this week.

Kemba Walker- (3 Games) Kemba is two weeks away from being a good start.  Coming off the bench he looks inconsistent and bad, soon the Bobcats will give him 30+ Minutes to see what he’s got in the tank.

Tayshaun Prince- (3 Games) Now Tayshaun is still startable in all leagues, but with 3 games it would be wise to go with a more consistent option if you own one.  Tayshaun is looking at a possible 36 Points this week, which is less than what Marcus Thornton can put up in one game.

Trevor Ariza- (3 Games) Ariza is also startable in all leagues.  He has not been playing amazingly well this past week, but he will still get you a little bit of everything.  Just one less game for it to be normal stats.

  1. M,

    Wondering if you think there’s room on my team for Alonzo Gee. 12 team 9 cat daily h2h league. I’m in 3rd and playoffs begin in a week. I was holding DeRozan for his scoring, but he and DJ seem like drop candidates, but would appreciate your guidance. Thanks!

    SF Paul Pierce

    C March Gasol

    1. Hi Eliot

      Alonzo Gee is a valuable asset, but I would not drop anyone on your team at this moment.

      If you hear news that Kyle Lowry will return next week, then drop Dragic.
      If D.J. Augustin fails to build off of his 20 Point game, within the next two games. Then drop D.J.
      Keep DeRozan, he is shooting the ball 15+ times a game, and nobody has a problem with it.

      The one concern with Gee is what are they going to do with him when Varejao returns. The Cavs want to keep playing Thompson, so it will take a move to SG for Gee to be a consistent option going forward from there. Varejao could return next week.

      Thompson and Crawford are not droppable under any circumstance.

  2. I picked up Evan Turner recently, but he has been a dud the past couple games. Should I drop him and pick up Klay Thompson instead?

    Also, should I try trading for Kemba Walker? I have Jeremy Lin or Jeff Teague I could trade for him.

    1. Hey so a team (11th) that is desperately trying to make the last seed (8th) of the playoffs has been dropping his players today to try to make a last push. He dropped Alonzo Gee, Nikola Pekovic, Deandre Jordan, and Bismack Biyombo. I want to pick up Gee since he’s been hot, and I could use his steals. Out of the other 3 PF/C’s, which 1 or 2 should I try to get off waivers (or wait until the waiver period is over right at the dot)?
      My droppable players are Evan Turner, Nate Robinson, Javale McGee, Jason Thompson, D.J. Augustin, and Nick Young. I’d probably drop Evan Turner for sure and most likely keep Nate Robinson…but what about the others on my team?

      Other notable free agents or waivers I’m interested in include: Trevor Booker, Derrick Favors, Wilson Chandler, Brandon Knight (waivers), O.J. Mayo, Mario Chalmers (waivers), Ben Gordon, Tristan Thompson, Gerald Green, Courtney Lee, Zaza Pachulia

      My team:
      PG-Steve Nash, SG-Ray Allen, G-Brandon Jennings
      SF-Marcus Thornton, PF-Luis Scola, F-Nick Young
      C-Dwight Howard, C-Javale McGee
      UTIL-DJ Augustin, Lou Williams, Evan Turner, Nate Robinson, Jason Thompson

      THANKS A LOT!

        1. I believe I’ll most likely drop Evan Turner (10 playoff games, in slump) and pick up Alonzo Gee (13 games, hot, need steals) and also pick up Bismack Biyombo (and drop Jason Thompson-since Bismack will give me more blocks than Jason and also Pekovic). DeAndre and Biyombo seem to have similar value to my team yet Biyombo has a better playoff schedule. Should I also try to get DeAndre…. and drop Javale or one of my guards such as Nick Young (I don’t need as many 3’s, but I do need the assists from Augustin) or another of my players for DeAndre (I may have more than enough blocks and rebounds though if I already have Dwight, Biyombo, and Javale)?

          1. I’ll add Alonzo (13) and drop Evan Turner.
            Actually out of the 5 PF/C’s in Javale, Bismack, DeAndre, Thompson, and Pekovic,
            I will probably choose Bismack (13 games) and Thompson (13).
            I will keep Jason Thompson.
            When I add Bismack, who should I drop? Should I drop Javale for him or someone else?
            Or should I keep Javale (11 games)?
            I’ll probably ignore DeAndre (12) or Pekovic (11).

            Sorry, for the multiple comments. I was just submitting and kept thinking of different scenarios and thoughts!

          2. @Richard. Not a problem with the multiple posts, I always encourage people to post as often as they desire.

            Here is what I would do.

            I would not pickup Gee, he is doing well now, but his value will be inconsistent with Tristan Thompson now being a big part of the offense. When Anderson Varejao returns his value will be very shaky.

            Wilson Chandler is must-own. He will get 30+ Minutes a night and can fill up the stat sheet with the best of the forwards now that Gallo is gone. You can drop Jason Thompson for him as his value will not last like this when Tyreke Evans starts taking 15+ shots a game or DeMarcus stops fouling out.

            Bismack Biyombo is a great fantasy playoff option. He is going to be a beast with 5 games in week 16, he is must-own as he can win you the block category by himself that week.

            Brandon Knight is must-own. He will get a lot more PT and be more aggressive to close out the season. Rookies always are. I would drop Nick Young who will not be consistent on the crowded Clipper team.

            Add Nikola for Turner. Nikola is Gortat 2.0 and will be a solid option in a couple games once he heals from his ankle injury. He is a double-double machine as the Turner was outscored by both 76er reserve guards and is now ice-cold as this is turning into Jrue Holidays team. He will be good on the week Minnesota has 4 games. Which is 3 of the 5 Playoff weeks.

            Keep D.J. for now as he had an impressive game a couple games back, the Bobcats have a nice 5 game week coming up where he will be useful. Keep Javale as he had the game wining play for Denver, he will start to get more PT.

      1. I just picked up Wilson Chandler (FA) and dropped Evan Turner then. I needed another SF if I were to drop Turner and Young, so I’ll try out Wilson over Gee. Biyombo is on waivers until Friday, so I’ll drop Nick Young for him. Pekovic is on waivers until Saturday, so I’ll drop Jason Thompson…. For Brandon Knight, would it be wise to drop Lou Williams since Brandon Knight will most likely see more minutes than Lou? They output about the same value, but Brandon Knight has a few more assists and games than Lou.

        The only possible drops I have left for Knight would be …. Lou, Augustin, Javale, anyone else?…
        as my roster (if all goes to plan) will be ….Nash, Ray Allen,Jennings, Marcus, Dwight, Scola, Javale, Wilson, Augustin, Lou, Biyombo, Pekovic, and Nate.

        I’ll see if I can make that chat!
        Thanks.

        1. I would have Brandon Knight over D.J. and Lou. If I had to keep one of those two, I would keep Lou over D.J. Lou is the best scorer on that team despite coming off the bench. As soon as Jrue goes cold, it will be the Lou show again.

          The Pistons will hand the reigns over to Knight to see what they really got in his future at some point. Rookies always get put in these situations.

          Everything looks to plan, I would now hold onto Jason Thompson after he impressed with DeMarcus Cousins doing amazing as well. Let Peko sit on the wire until Jason Thompson snaps out of reality, his value has never been higher.

          Hope to see you there.

    2. I would definitely drop Evan Turner as his time is coming to an end with Jrue Holiday running the show. Pickup Klay.

      It is definitely worth grabbing Kemba for Teague as the Bobcats have 5 games in week 16, while the Hawks have 3. The other owner should pull the trigger if he/she is not aware of the situation as Teague has been outstanding. I do truly believe the Bobcats will soon run Kemba 35+ Minutes and tell him to shoot at will. I have been hyping this idea since draft day.
