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.

Nikola Jokic- He finally has C position eligibility in ESPN! [mkmk]

DeAndre Jordan- Don't forget his numbers were inflated last year with griffin missi a chunk a time. Lead to more rebounds and shot attempts. [gehrenberg]
100% agree

DeAndre Jordan- Blocks and assists (lol) are up. Hack-a-Jordan is negatively affecting his minutes and FTArate. The projection looks fair to me, which is depressing. [kitchles]
100% agree

Clint Capela- He would become extremely attractive to me with PF eligibility. Does ESPN fiddle with that stuff very often, or is he likely going to be soley Center eligible all season? [kitchles]

Kevin Martin- Let's be honest here... as much I I don't always agree with some of the subjective comments, Martin pretty much deserves it. He was projected at 190ish in 9-cat and is currently ranked 256th while doing worse as a starter. You'd have to be in a pretty ridiculously deep league to find value in him, which is pretty much what Kyle was alluding to. [Jayde]
100% agree

Al-Farouq Aminu- Wow, I think half my team got a downward bump today. I'm fucked. Aminu is getting a ridiculously low number of steals though, less than half the per/36 rate of any year in his career. Everything else makes sense, including somewhat higher usage due to a bigger PDX role. A game with 5 steals would be a nice thing to wipe away my tears with. [kitchles]

Kevin Martin- Kyle - I take issue with your rant not highlighting how injury prone he is. If you're gonna hate on a guy, you can't half ass it. [mrg12686]
100% agree

Kevin Martin- Please don't stop Kyle. Your humor is much needed and appreciated here. You even prefaced your comment with "rant". If someone can't tell that it's hyperbole then it's his problem. Ridiculous. [#54982]
100% agree

DeAndre Jordan- Most of his stats look typical. He got a lot of minutes in December last season and went on that rebounding tear, but he's averaging just 32 mpg right now, so he's only pulling down 12 boards per game, but his blocks are up per-minute. Is there something specific you're hoping he does better in? [kylemckeown16]

Kevin Martin- I like the commentary so I don't think sif2988 speaks for everyone. Feel free to comment. [hsahardid]
100% agree

Kevin Martin- This is the players comments section of the site, not the projections. So, I think it's fair if I offer my commentary on the players here. Also, Martin is taking 8.4 FGA per game over the last two weeks. He's not being aggressive at all despite having a starting role. The comment of "anything but 42-team league" is hyperbole. I'll try to cut back on making any comments that aren't 100 percent void of opinion in the future and just report facts. Sorry if I've mislead at all. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Tyreke Evans- Fair enough, but I'm looking beyond the whole B2B/rest issue initially...more concerned about playoffs and ROS. I very much question Payton given what we've seen over the last month, even holding fast. In categories leagues with FG%, I honestly question his value very heavily, even looking optimistically. [Jayde]

Kevin Martin- Kyle, you keep doing this. Your emotions seem to be inseperable from your analysis, and as a result it's making your recommendations hard to trust, which is a shame because you're one of only two guys running this thing day-to-day. "Like" him or not, KM is worth rostering in deep leagues. Just some perspective--I mean for it to be constructive. [sif2988]
20% agree

Thabo Sefolosha- That feels like trading a quarter for two dimes. I'd ride out Green's crappy shooting or look to grab a better H2H player than Thabo who is going to help you more overall. Is TJ Warren available? That's a flier worth taking. [kylemckeown16]

Thabo Sefolosha- Drop Danny Green for Thabo in a 12 Man h2h? [Martiaci]
