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.

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.

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

Kenneth Faried- Why is he suddenly expected to drop 30+ fantasy points in Fanduel tomorrow? He's coming off a mild injury, hasn't seen much action lately, and MIL is a pretty good rebounding team (where most of Faried's value is). Just curious on this projection. [darrenloveland]

Jerryd Bayless- I'm going to be adjusting all of that very soon. He will get a bump [joshlloyd48]

Jerryd Bayless- Bayless is projected to play only 26 minutes per game over the next week. Does that need adjustment or are you waiting for a confirmation that the switch to the staring position is here it stay? [javiers]

TJ Warren- Is it bad that I'm tempted to drop Marcus Morris (not even the worst player on my roster) for him? [mayorion_barry]

Clint Capela- just dropped TJones for him [cadavi]

Nikola Jokic- Is there any reason why Jokic doesn't have C eligibility on ESPN? Also, do you think he'll really have any long-term value with Nurkic returning in a few weeks? Doesn't look too promising so far. [#19032]

Mirza Teletovic- This guy looks like he's doing really well in 20 mins.. Worth a pick up? [Benniepie]
0% agree

Patty Mills- How is this guy still a 200+ projection? Outside last year where he was recovering for injury he's been a per minute stud and he's getting more minutes than ever this year and is still in that top 115 range he was when he was last healthy. [Coverthepaint]

Karl-Anthony Towns- I don't understand why it matters if Towns plays too many minutes and hits the rookie wall. Who cares. If it happens then play him less. If it doesn't then great. Porzingis can play 40 no problem but this guy is limited to 25? It's not like Minnesota is a contender or anything. [#54982]
100% agree

Otto Porter Jr- Otto or Tjones ROS? 12 team pts league [LagunaLaker]

Rodney Hood- rank: hood, tj warren, will barton [chiho]

Tyson Chandler- I just made that same move in a league that counts percentages--he could put it his efficiency together at some point this season. But as the first casualty of small-ball in a copycat league, I'm willing to bet that when he does put it together his minutes will be limited--as will his counting stats. Let someone else waste a roster spot on him. [mateyy]
100% agree

Tyson Chandler- Drop Chandler for Leonard? I'm really worried about this guy and he's just been warming a spot. League has no percentages and TO and T.Chandler is not doing so hot even when he's on the floor... Very frustrated.. I'd like to hold him and hope that he'll pump out those DD, but if his age and injury keeps pulling him down, I think i'm going to have to let him go.. [Benniepie]
100% agree

Kevin Martin- Why does this guy suck so badly? [jclee4]
