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.

Kawhi Leonard- bonezi89 - that's what Custom Projections are for. Just set his Assists to 3.0. Problem solved. :) [drstats]

Nerlens Noel- i have been offered Noel for W Barton. comments? [bitaites]
100% agree

Nikola Jokic- IMHO, he seems to have limited upside, less so than Mirotic last yr. When he gets almost 30mpg, he seesm to put up solid but unspectacular numbers - seems like he's always in foul trouble early lately. Lack of blocks is tough as well. I still own him, but am struggling to see his upside that's been talked about. [scottkdouglas]

John Wall- Who do you think is a proper buy-low offer for someone like Wall? I'm currently debating an offer of Covington, in hopes that Wall returns to round 2/3 value. [canowhoop]

Nikola Jokic- I don't think Jokic is worth holding in most leagues right now, but he's someone to watch and jump on anytime an opportunity for minutes opens up. Think Mirotic last year -- unusable most of the time, but serious value if you had him in the right windows. [manpanzee]

Nikola Jokic- I picked up Dieng wherever available and dropped my lowest projected guy. [LGLP86]

Nikola Jokic- I'm thinking of dropping Jokic for Dieng. Hard to see any long term payoff with the return of Nurkic. Also, seems like it will be hard to deny Dieng 25 min a game with his current/past output. Thoughts? [hairychicken]

Kobe Bryant- After this week run...His per-36 with punt FG% is starting to get hard to own. I think he is due for a cut on punt FG% team if he can't churn in any more 20/5/5 lines... [LGLP86]

Michael Carter-Williams- We are dropping in shallow leagues, correct? [peezus]

Matt Barnes- playing time sustainable? [bostonrider]
50% agree

Robert Covington- you could argue his steals could be bumped...not to the 7 hes avg over last 3 but def little over 2 [benrv21]

Terrence Jones- Kyle/Josh, drop Jones for Capella or Dieng? Or hold? Comp H2H 12 Team [dondada83]
100% agree

Kawhi Leonard- Can I just say one thing that bugs me every time I look at his projection...his assists are literally 0.1 off him being the only player to have a categorical positive in every category! Just give him that last nudge BBM! [bonezi89]
0% agree

Paul George- Time to bump PG up in points? Since he's switched back to SF after his 5th game in the season he's averaged 30 a game [Chris Smith]

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