Daily Rankings are now released

Just been offered Iguodala and Turner for Irving and Jennings should I take it? (Give up Kyrie and Jennings)
March 12, 2012 – 3:22 pm
@Andy: I personally wouldn’t take Iggy and Turner. Iggy gives you near 3×2, and evan turner will do fine. The only problem is that turner can be very inconsistent and streaky. I’d stick with your 2 stars.

Thanks, just trying to upgrade my team before the deadline, do you think I should drop Trevor Ariza for Biyombo? Mainly to upgrade in SF/C
March 12, 2012 – 3:35 pm
@Andy: Make that move now. Ariza has been too inconsistent and Biyombo will get a chance to run free once the Bobcats give him more minutes.
March 12, 2012 – 3:43 pm
Done, anyone wanna rate my team?

Derrick Rose Tyreke Evans Brandon Jennings Danilo Gallinari LaMarcus Aldridge Zach Randolph Al Jefferson Ersan Ilyasova Carlos Boozer Jamal Crawford Stephen Curry Kyrie Irving Ty Lawson KevinLove Bismack Biyombo Its a PG,SG,G,SF,F,PF,C,C, 2 Utility League 9 stats H2H
March 12, 2012 – 4:01 pm
That’s a very good team. The only player I see worth dropping is Jamal unless Bismack endures an extraordinary slump. If you could possibly get Joakim or Marcus Thornton for Gallo, you’re team would be absolutely dominant.
March 12, 2012 – 4:02 pm
@Andy: Do it! Biyombo will help you so much in the next couple of weeks. I added him several days ago.

D-Rock I’ll send an offer to the team that has Noah hopefully they accept
*Anyone else find it ironic that the cover photo for DAILY RANKINGS, is an image of the Warriors vs. Bucks? Anyways.
The Warriors have officially lost hope on this season. Trading away Monta Ellis, and the up and coming Ekpe Udoh, (And I guess Kwame Brown). For the injured Andrew Bogut, and Stephen “Don’t Call it a Comeback” Jackson. The Bucks now have a great complimentary guard who can take over games and give them a good shot at making a playoff run. Let us analyze this from a fantasy perspective.
WAIVER WIRE: GET READY TO DO THE FOLLOWING.
- ADD: S. Jackson/N. Robinson/K. Thompson/D. Wright
- DROP: E.Udoh/M.Dunleavy/S.Curry (Not Yet, but Soon)
STEPHEN CURRY: (VALUE DOWN) Word on the street is he may be shut down for the season. The Warriors showed that they do not care anymore and are looking to grab the best possible draft pick. It is going to be tough to even watch this team play out the rest of the season with no Curry, or Ellis. All rumors for now, but it does not sound like he is going to finish the season out regardless.
NATE ROBINSON: (VALUE UP) If the Warriors continue to give Nate starters Minutes, aka Steph Curry is done for the season. Pick up Nate Robinson! He can score 20+ Points, and rack up 7+ dimes. He is an explosive offensive player who would make an immediate impact on your fantasy team in the 3PTM, and steals department. You may be too late if you wait another game, but the risk is worth it. The Warriors have to sell tickets some way. The Warriors also keep their 1st round draft pick if it lands in the top 7. Playing Nate Robinson the rest of the season is the guaranteed way to do that.
DAVID LEE: (VALUE UP) Lee is now a top tier forward in fantasy leagues. He becomes the first and second option offensively every game. 20+ Points is expected every night, anything less will have me worried about his value going into next season.
KLAY THOMPSON: (VALUE UP) With the Warriors in give up mode, Thompson may actually carry some value. There are rumors that he could be the starter going forward, and that is enough to make him worth the add if you desperately need 3PTM. There is a good chance he does not live up to the expectations and goes back to the bench, but for now this is his time. 19 Shot attempts in 42 Minutes shows that he has fantasy potential. It would not be a bad idea to add him now.
DORRELL WRIGHT: (VALUE UP) If Dorrell Wright could not catch anymore breaks being the biggest bust in all drafts. Well his value just got a huge spike up. Dorrell should get plenty more opportunities to be the go-to-guy from the perimeter. He will probably still be inconsistent, but we may see those 4 3PTM games more frequently. Do not let him be on your waiver wire. However, this all sounds great but it could all end if Stephen Jackson gets his act together, and becomes the full-time starter who sees 30 Minutes. Just another chapter in the Dorrell Wright story.
BRANDON RUSH: (VALUE UP) Brandon seems to put up better games with no Curry. Now that he may be gone for the season, along with Monta Ellis. There is a good chance Rush becomes a nice fantasy option to use at some point this season. It will either take a Klay Thompson choke, or Dorrell Wright to continue the most miserable fantasy season of all time. Either way, keep an eye on Brandon Rush who can really fill up a stat sheet if given the minutes. It is uncertain how much of an affect Jackson will have on the rotation. He could be a head case, or he could play like a fantasy superstar.
STEPHEN JACKSON: (VALUE UP) Jackson did not have any fantasy value to begin with before this move. It is uncertain if the Warriors are going to treat Jackson as the fantasy option he once was, or if Jackson decides the Warriors are not a good enough team for him. Either way you have to pick him up before you pick up Klay Thompson. If Jackson gets back on the good side of the Warriors faithful who loved him during that epic playoff run a few years back. Then there is a good chance he will be a must-start option who gets assists, 3PTM, Points, and steals from the forward position. With the chance of Curry being out for the season, it increases the chance it becomes Stephen Jackson’s team for the time being.
ANDRIS BIEDRINS: (VALUE UP) I do not recommend picking up Andris. If you are desperate for a guy who can potentially get you double-digit rebounds with some steals and blocks, then Andris is your guy. However knowing the Warriors, they could work a rotation where David Lee plays center for nearly 40 Minutes while Rush, Jackson, or Wright play the PF. Either way, Andris is a low end option and if your team has to use him, chances are your season is already over.
BRANDON JENNINGS: (VALUE DOWN) Brandon may or may not adjust well to Monta joining the team. Either way, his value is probably going to go down as he has to share more shot attempts, and less ball handling responsibilities. He should still be a solid fantasy option, but if you thought he was inconsistent before, just wait and see.
MONTA ELLIS: (VALUE DOWN) Monta goes to a similar situation where he plays alongside a star PG. However this time around, he has no chemistry with his mate. Jennings is very similar to Curry where he wants to shoot the ball a lot, and make plays on his own. Monta should still be able to get his 20, just expect some bumps along the way. Ersan Ilysova and Drew Gooden give Ellis some new targets to work with. It will be interesting to see if he continues his ball hogging ways, or gets them involved and becomes a consistent 7 Assist option. That will be the key to his value.
MIKE DUNLEAVY: (VALUE DOWN) Mike was doing great as the only perimeter scorer on the team besides Jennings. Now with Delfino most likely moving back to the forward position, Dunleavy will go from 35 Minutes a game, to 25 Minutes a game. He is one bad game away from being waiver wire material for good. Unless somehow Delfino proves he cannot handle 30 Minutes on this squad. A timeshare is likely.
CARLOS DELFINO: (VALUE DOWN) Carlos had a comfy situation where he knew he would never get benched. Now he has Mike Dunleavy breathing down his neck every night with Monta moving to the 2 guard. Delfino could crack under the pressure making it a complete timeshare, but for now Delfino is still the same fantasy option who could see more 3PT attempts. It will be interesting to see if he has the Dorrell Wright effect now that Ellis is with him.
DREW GOODEN: (VALUE DOWN) Gooden went from being the #1, #2, or #3 option some nights, to now possibly the #3 or #4 option. He should still be a solid fantasy option, but expecting 20 Points consistently may not come like it used too. The Bucks also added another big man in Ekpe Udoh who has proved he can handle big minutes and put up some nice stats. This adds a bit more pressure for Gooden to perform and look like he is fresh out there. His leash is a bit shorter, though he should still remain a decent fantasy option who can put up (12 Point, 9 Rebound) performances.
ERSAN ILYSOVA: (VALUE DOWN) Ersan was getting consistent fantasy production on a Bucks team that was desperate for a go-to-guy. Monta is now the full time go-to-guy, which is a problem because the Bucks had 3 other options who were all consistently getting their points. Somewhat consistent. The headache will now be existent for Ilysova owners who are really going to have to count on those rebounds every night to remain a good fantasy option. I still see him being a starter in all leagues, but expect less than pre-trade David Lee numbers at this point (13 Points, 8 Rebounds).
EKPE UDOH: (VALUE DOWN) Just when you thought you found fantasy gold. You were fooled. Udoh goes into a bad situation where he will come off the bench and most likely play around 20 Minutes a night. That is not enough to depend on consistent fantasy production. He is droppable in all leagues with the move to the Bucks.
