Have a great week, we'll do it same time, same place next week thumbs up

Alright guys, thanks for everyone joining in again.

Harkless is a handy player for that steals/blocks/threes combo. Good streaming option, but I wouldn't hold him on my roster. 

14.0h

Will78 

Do you think Harkless can have a decent run for ROS? It seems that he can consistent mins now.

True, I have pretty much Skal and Olynyk planned for the following week...but I'll take the wait and see approach

14.1h

SmanSports 

If you have a week, plan for the following week. See who has the most quality games, or which team(s) start the week with a back-to-back etc. A good player also might be dropped from another team who is desperate for other stats, so be prepared for that too.

I have a bye week next week, should I stash guys or have a wait and see approach?

I'd keep DSJ. I'd probably risk Porzingis and then likely keep Millsap over Cousins, but it's close. 

14.1h

avatar

kangarookid 

Options are Fultz, Smith Jr., Millsap, Porzingas, Cousins, Aldridge.

14.2h

avatar

SmanSports 

I'd like to know who your other options are. Kawhi probably. Cousins doubtful and Porzingis maybe. 

14.2h

avatar

kangarookid 

Would you keep Cousins, Porzingas, or Leonard into next season if you are allotted three keepers?

14.2h

SmanSports 

I'm pretty confident Collison will return to somewhere near his production before his injury. I don't see any reason why he won't have his starting role back with similar minutes to before (he might come off the bench for the first game or two back, but not for the rest of the season)

14.2h

avatar

Ejaggit 

reduced minutes etc?

 

14.2h

avatar

SmanSports 

Im not expecting a real lot from Teodosic. He's a handy fourth option PG to get you over the line in assists, but he's not a must own guy.

14.2h

avatar

Ejaggit 

What're the chances of Collison coming back and playing the way he did prior to his injury? And is there any risk his starting role to be taken away?

14.2h

avatar

yomar 

Sorry if you already spoke to this, but what do you expect from Teodosic down the stretch?  LAC have 4 games all 3 weeks of playoffs

14.3h

avatar

SmanSports 

Depending on what you need and who you are going to get games out of you could drop Nance/Powell/Skal. 

14.3h

10 Team  H2H Points League... Who would you recommend I drop, if anyone, for a streaming spot? Have probably 1-2 too many F/C for available spots

Mudiay is another that can be owned, but not must own. Comes down to your situation and schedule/need like most things at this point. 

14.3h

avatar

SmanSports 

I'm not interested in Noel right now. When I know he'll be playing a consistent 22-26 minutes a game, then I will be. 

14.3h

avatar

Ejaggit 

What are your thoughts on Mudiay?

14.3h

SmanSports 

Carmelo has been a huge bust this season. He is outside the top 100. That's fine if you need to drop him. 

14.3h

avatar

SmanSports 

I wrote about Burke in my waiver wire article this week. I honestly don't know what to make of him. You can add him for sure, but he's just as likely to put up some dud lines again. At least Jack is out of the rotation which helps. 

14.4h

avatar

thechampishere 

What is your take on Noel?

14.4h

avatar

fazzinafc 

Time to move on from Carmelo. Has been awful lately. I have guys like Hood, Boban, D Wright, D Brooks and Wade on my waiver wire.

14.4h

avatar

SmanSports 

Barea probably won't maintain this level, but his value is pretty safe. There's no reason for the Mavs to shut him down.

14.4h

avatar

Will78 

Any thoughts on Burke fror ROS? Will you take Bender over Burk since Bender is more fantasy friendly?

14.4h

avatar

Ejaggit 

Is Barea likely to keep up this hot streak? At this moment I'd rather him than Collison for assists....  Will Dallas shut him down entirely like they probably would to dirk?

14.4h

avatar

SmanSports 

That's a big call. At this point I'd have to say no. I woudn't keep him over those four players you mentioned. At least keeping 3-4 good guards you can focus on big men in the draft. 

14.4h

avatar

SmanSports 

You'll get one more game out of Olynyk, but that will be against the Jazz

14.4h

avatar

Devonator 

Do you think Jarrett Allen can be a top 50 player next year? I'm considering him as a keeper because good bigs are scarce in my league. My current keepers are: Oladipo, Middleton and GHarris/D'Angelo Russell.

thechampishere 

Skal or Olynyk for week of March 12th?

14.4h

avatar

SmanSports 

Depends when your playoffs are. The start of his 4 week timetable will be the last week in March, that's his best case scenario. 

14.5h

avatar

Ejaggit 

So you really don't think that Butler can come back for playoff time? (fantasy) And if that answer was for me about Miami I'm a lock for playoffs

14.5h

avatar

SmanSports 

Not necessarily more minutes for Bender (he's averaged 27mpg over his last five), he might heat up again. There's a chance Booker and Warren sit some games (like Warren is questionable tonight). I can't seeing Tyson Chandler playing much. 

14.5h

avatar

Will78 

Any comments on Bender for ROS? He is highly inconsistent so far but more mins moving forward?

14.5h

avatar

SmanSports 

Depends how deep you are likely to go. Probably Skal, Henson and James Johnson, but schedule will largely determine that. 

14.5h

avatar

SmanSports 

You need to get to that point in the season where the Heat have strong weeks. No point holding JJ, Olynyk, Ellington, Wade etc if you don't get there. 

14.5h

avatar

SmanSports 

I'd drop Butler for Collison. I wouldn't worry about turnovers right now. You are strong in rebounds, blocks, assists, steals and FG%

14.5h

avatar

Devonator 

Which 3 of these 5 would you want for your playoff run: Sabonis, Henson, James Johnson, Skal and Noel. I'm going to make the playoffs for sure.

14.5h

avatar

Ejaggit 

JJ doesn't seem to be doing too hot this season,,

14.5h

avatar

Ejaggit 

At this point who'd you say we should hang on to from miami during those treasured playoff weeks

14.5h

avatar

SmanSports 

@Will 78 - Skal, Collins, Allen, Len, Bender

14.5h

avatar

SmanSports 

The Heat have a good playoff run coming up, so you will get games out of him. If you need immediate production to get through a week of playoffs though he can be dropped. 

14.5h

Thanks! You think a streaming spot would be better than Redick at this point?

14.5h

avatar

Ejaggit 

What approach do you think I should take? Recently dropped Collison for Rubio and I'm pretty sure I might pick him up. What stat looks for within reach for me? If i get collison my assists would be good, but my TO rate might be bad

 

14.5h

avatar

Will78 

any C/PF in your mind has potential to bust out during the fantasy playoff?

14.6h

avatar

SmanSports 

Dedmon can be dropped smitty. I'd rather a streaming spot than hold Brook right now though

14.6h

avatar

SmanSports 

If you don't NEED a PG then, there doesn't sound like much reason to add Collison

14.6h

avatar

SmanSports 

Good luck finding that Ejaggit, lol. Just focus on those five strong categories and hopefully it's enough to get you over the line

14.6h

avatar

Devonator 

What's your opinion on James Johnson? I'm basically holding him for the playoffs.

14.6h

avatar

smitty2323 

Drop Dedmon for Brook Lopez? 

14.6h

avatar

SmanSports 

@62161 - Beasley or Redick can be two guys that you can drop if need

14.6h

avatar

thechampishere 

Hey Matt, should I stash Collison even though I don't need a PG?

14.6h

avatar

Ejaggit 

Hey!

just wondering what're your thoughts on my team... jimmy butler is out so i'm looking for someone to average 22.2 pts, 5 apg, 5.5 rebs, and 2 steals (Lol)
