Weeks ago, I dropped Augustin for Nate… Now, I’m having this feeling that I would take back Augustin and drop Nate… Should I?…

Ya I would. After D.J.’s nice 16 Point 10 Assist effort, the Bobcats seem committed to giving him chance to prove he can run the show. Plus even in all his terrible scoring games, he was grabbing 8 Assists. Nate does not have as much upside as he had a few weeks ago now that Jenkins is the starter.

Just do not be surprised when Kemba Walker takes over for D.J., it could be this week, it could be next, or it may never happen. But I expect it to happen soon.

Any Free Agents in your leagues you are looking to add? (To both of you)

Eric Gordon and Gallo is set to return next week. They could be a bit rusty… Are they worth owneing considering we are in the middle of the playoff matchup and the advantage in some categories are within reach?…

If I had to choose one of the two it would definitely be Eric Gordon. The Hornets will not bring him back unless he is 100%, he appears close to that and he is more likely to make a HUGE impact in Week 16 (Next Week), than in Week 15 where he may be limited his first game or two back.

Gallo and the Nuggets are the deepest fantasy basketball team in the NBA by a long shot. Coach Karl mixes up his rotations too often to ever get a consistent week out of any player that is not named Ty Lawson.

who would you consider adding Gordon for?

April 1, 2012 – 7:40 pm
It would be Nate or Hickson…

  1. How far will Brandon Knights value drop when Gordon and Stuckey are healthy? I have Isaiah Thomas and not sure if i should drop him for Knight. I also want to know if I should pick up Jordan Crawford if I already have 3 sg’s in Harden, Ray Allen and Manu. This is my roster if you need it.
    PG:Isaiah Thomas, Mike Conley, Jarett Jack, Ramon Sessions
    SG: Harden, Allen, Manu
    SF: Josh Smith and Klay Thompson
    PF: Jason Thompson and Lamarcus Aldridge
    C: Dwight Howard and JJ Hickson
    Just picked up Thomas and JJ and dropped Lin and Pekovic
    Thanks!

  2. Should I hold onto Derrick Rose? There is only 3 bench spots and he prolly wont play this week and I need to win to make it to the championship. What are my chances of winning this week..Its a typical 9 category head to head.

    My Team:
    Deron Williams
    Tyreke Evans
    Andre Iguodala
    Rajon Rondo
    Zach Randolph
    Josh Smith
    Greg Monroe
    Demarcous Cousins
    Roy Hibbert
    Derrick Rose
    Bismack Biyombo
    Iman Shumpert
    Jordan Crawford

    His Team:
    John wall
    Arron Afflalo
    Brandon Jennings
    Klay Thompson
    Jason Thompson
    Chris Kaman
    Zaza pachulla
    Drew Gooden
    Jose Calderon
    Goran Dragic
    David Lee
    Louis Williams
    Joe johnson

    going off the names i would win but his team always seems to put up huge numbers.. should i drop rose because i might not play any games this week? what type of player should i go after? thanks for any of the help you can provide..lots of money at stake lol

  3. Brendan,

    Brandon Knight should stay great even when Gordon and Stuckey return. He is their franchise PG and the Pistons want to see what he has.

    Do not drop Isaiah Thomas this week who has 5 games on tap. I personally would rather have Knight than Jack with Knight having the extra game. The Hornets are getting very healthy at the Guard spot and that could ruin the consistent play of Jack; Vasquez is playing well, Belinelli is playing well; E-Gord is coming back.

    It is a tough situation, but if it is the playoffs, and only one week and you’re done. I would add Knight for Jack.

    Jordan Crawford is a more solid option than all of your SG’s. I would drop Ray Allen if any of them since he has yet to prove he is fully healthy. The season is almost over and it seems they just want to get him ready for the playoffs more than anything. Crawford shoots 8-10 3PT attempts per game, so he should be able to match if not exceed Ray Allen’s 3PTM numbers.

    Good moves with Thomas and JJ.

    Add: Crawford Drop: Allen
    Add: Knight Drop: Jack (If this is the playoffs and it is single elimination).

    Let me know if you have any other questions, and glad to see you be an active member of the BEAST DOME community.

  4. If it is a daily league, I would not drop D-Rose as he “should” return at some point.

    His team is not very strong, and unless some of these players like Zaza, Kaman, Williams, or Afflalo really break out. Then you are in trouble.

    Give me a list of FA’s and I can help you more, but if Kemba Walker is a FA you should pick him up immediately as he will be FANTASY GOLD now that he is starting for Charlotte.

    Your roster is strong, Iman Shumpert is good, but do not be surprised to see J.R. Smith have a better week. With that being said, Shumpert is much safer.

    If Rose is on your bench for a weekly league, leave him there. You will want him in the championship.

    If it is a daily league, keep him and once you see your team will lose without him by Thursday then you can make the move, just know you will probably lose in the championship if the other team picks him up.

    Give me a list of FAs and I will be happy to help you out, also let me know if it is a daily or weekly league.

    Lets bring home that championship!

  5. Thanks again! Im a little skeptical of those moves since Jack has had good games recently and Im afraid Jordan will hurt me in FG% too much but I see how those moves will help me also. I’ll definitely have more questions soon.

  6. I picked up Crawford but in the next two weeks knight only plays one more game than jack, the team I’m against I’m not really afraid of his team,but I’m worried I’ll lose too much in assists without jack and conley didn’t play tonight. Should I be worried about assists? My opponent has Nash. I really appreciate the advice!

  7. Also sorry but with kemba starting now do you like him over knight? If I pick kemba up now I can have him for 4 games this week ( same with knight) and kemba has 5 games next week!

  8. thanks so much, it is a daily league… and some free agents are Paul George, Nikola Pekovic, Marcus Camby, Gerald Henderson, Kemba Walker, Tristain Thompson, j.j. hickson.

    I am also thinking about dropping biyombo later on in the week cuz he has been disappointing for awhile now… but let me know which add and drops you would make or whatever other advice you can give that would be great!

  9. Looking at your team, I would make the following moves.

    Drop: Bismack Biyombo
    Add: Nikola Pekovic

    Drop: Iman Shumpert
    Add: Kemba Walker

    Those are the only moves for now. Marcus Camby is someone you might want to add for Zach Randolph, but keep in mind Randolph has 2 more games than him left this week.

    It helps me if you give up some details about your matchup. A link to your league could help, or just tell me what the scores are in the categories and your matchup. Whatever you give me, I will give you back.

    Check my Daily Rankings tomorrow. Lets win this Championship!

  10. Kemba is Must-Add in all leagues.

    I do like him better than Jack and Knight.

    Your assists are going to be fine when Conley returns. The combo of Conley, Thomas, Sessions, and now Walker will be unstoppable.

    I would be worried about Nash who should get 10 a game he plays. It really depends who is on your opponents roster for your to be too worried.

    Feel free to give me as much detail as possible and I will help you out.

    For the Record, I would probably add Knight over Thomas once this week is over. Thomas should get a nice boost with Marcus Thornton possibly missing a game or two.

    Check the Daily Rankings. Let’s Win This Championship!

  11. Ok just realized Kemba was on this guys team all season so he’s not available to me. I decided not to go with knight just yet because I still like how Jack’s playing. You said you would want me to drop Thomas for Knight after the week? Just confused since you said Thomas should get a boost without Thornton. Here is my opponents roster so you can have some more detail.
    PG: Nash, Collison, Harris and Teague
    SG: J-Rich and Nick young
    SF: Iggy and Gerald Wallace
    PF: Millsap, Pau and David West
    C: Nene and Gortat
    Hope this helps! Should I be worried or any other transactions you feel will help me win this week?Camby is available in my league and wanted to know if I should add him for someone on my team. JJ had a rough game last night but I’ll keep for at least one more game, and the same for Jason Thompson who I heard was very limited. Anyone you think I should pick up is most likely a free agent in my league since only the playoff teams can make transactions and there is only 4 left. I love your advice and want to know where is the most convenient spot I should post my questions. My opponent is the cockiest out of all of my friends so I need to win or else I won’t hear the end of it haha. Thanks again.
