By George, He's Done It Again

November 30, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

Paul George's presence as a top 10 player is certainly surprising to me, as he has overcome a significant mental hurdle to not only get back to his best but to somehow be far and away a better player than he was pre-injury. Congratulations if you drafted him.

Anthony Davis, Come Save Us

November 29, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

So, it appears Chris Paul didn't end Anthony Davis' career Friday night, despite Twitter's protests, as AD was back and destroying again. The latest injury scare may be an opportunity to buy him as low as you'll ever see, but Saturday's output might reduce that chance.

An Almost 5x5 Friday

November 28, 2015 by Kyle McKeown

On a 12-game Friday evening, there were plenty of lineup changes and big fantasy lines to go over, and leading the way was Kawhi Leonard missing a 5x5 performance by one steal.

Matt Smith: @SmanSports


Emmanuel Mudiay- Punting TO and FG% - would you rather have Mudiay or Clarkson ROS? [JonPerryDAL]

Deron Williams- At what point might an upgrade be in order? [kenjlev18]

Robert Covington- His per 36 projection is basically the same as last year, the only difference is he is playing more minutes [gehrenberg]
100% agree

Robert Covington- Super aggressive projection for Covington? Especially pts? [Donnie99]

D'Angelo Russell- Russell or Bayless? 10-man ROTO [shadowxp]

Victor Oladipo- Oladipo's projections seem too low at this point; it's difficult to predict obviously after just a couple games but it seems his usage is way up off the bench and asked to attack the basket more, resulting in more FTA, more attempts at the rim, and higher assists. Right now at 26mpg he is projected as lower than Russell or Mudiay in 8-cat although he's been playing well (unfortunately) in new role [MajorMilou]
100% agree

Jordan Clarkson- 3s need a bump I think, he's taking more and making more and is on record as saying it's the part of his game that he wants to build on this season. I think he's actually the most consistent 3 pt shooter on the Lakers atm believe it or not! [bonezi89]

Markieff Morris- Only thing down on a per 36 basis is his scoring and FG%, which tie in pretty closely. If his FG% rises back to normal, his points will be, but the minutes do need to be considered. I'll take a look. [joshlloyd48]

Raymond Felton- JJ Barea is out, so that is helping him and he is picking up the slack from Parsons. Short answer: No. [joshlloyd48]

Raymond Felton- Increase in minutes sustainable? [markalbert2kx]

Jrue Holiday- This guy was dropped in my 12 man H2H League with no percentages and TO. Good idea to drop Cory Joseph for Holiday? [Benniepie]
100% agree

Michael Carter-Williams- He was pretty bad the last 7 games or so. Hard to believe there will be a quick turnaround. And he's also not in the Oladipo situation where he can use the bench spot to lift up his production against the second units. [dorwell84]

Markieff Morris- Time to downgrade - below projection across the board and isn't getting 31mpg. With possible attitude/motivation issues as the cherry on top. [bolt]

Clint Capela- Drop Markieff for Capela? 10 Weekly H2H, punting asts, ft%, need solid fg%, pts, rebs, stls, blks... [nchristie]

Kenneth Faried- I haven't tweaked the projections for tomorrow yet. I'm getting on that now [joshlloyd48]
