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.

November 26, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

James Harden's early season struggles are a thing of the past, but not so, those of the Houston Rockets. Harden continues to be an awesome fantasy presence, but he has little help.

Jerryd Bayless- With Bayless starting over MCW today, what do you guys think? [Hawks 20]

Jerryd Bayless- Not expecting miracles here, but seems like his projections are a little low? Making it hard to project H2H results. Seems like his 3a/g are too low and his minutes are a couple shy. 3pt% is also way better and seems like enough of a sample size given his volume to justify a slight bump? Seems odd to be recommending him in the daily but still have him projected as a 13-14th round player. [Jayde]

Nerlens Noel- Nerlens Noel is a bust so far. I don't think he will regain his form from last year. Not with Jahlil there. Better to trade him for any value now. [lakersg]
33% agree

John Wall- What the hell is up with Wall? I am actualy considering benching him, and he is my most expensive player. [Petrocelli]
100% agree

Darren Collison- Projected rank 79 in 8 cat. Bayless 134. Are we expecting a downgrade? [markalbert2kx]

Tyson Chandler- Deep League: Projection vs. actual giving mixed signals. Chandler >> Bogut in projections. Bogut >> Chandler in actual. Bogut >> his projection. Chandler << his projection. Who is better ROS? [Massmonic]

Rodney Hood- Rodney Hood or JR Smith? [NeonChaos]

Danny Green- Honestly, this is a drop now, right? WE're not talking about a two, four or eight game slump. He's had one good game all year. [hugandi]
50% agree

Meyers Leonard- Hey guys, should i drop J. Hill for Meyers Leonard? What do you think? [thanvor]
100% agree

Darren Collison- Played more minutes than Rondo today, but it was a blowout and Rondo in foul trouble. Bayless seems to have a secure bench role, but I believe DC is the better player. I'm ok making the switch though [joshlloyd48]

Darren Collison- What are your thoughts on Collison? Debating dropping him for bayless. Need assists but it seems like the assist diff may be minor and Bayless is killing him in 3s, steals, and points. [hairychicken]

Ty Lawson- Here's the info regarding trades from CBA [joshlloyd48]

Ty Lawson- I could be wrong, but because he was acquired via a trade and not signed as a free agent, he is not subject to the time limit when he can be moved, which is December 15th for free agents. He could be moved at any time. [joshlloyd48]

Ty Lawson- If Houston decides to move Lawson to another team, or if they decide to waive him if there is no taker at all, when is the earlier time that can happen? [javiers]

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson- But I'd probably say RHJ, certainly while he's hot [ak murthy]
