 FilterMarcus Thornton11/16/2015 8:16 PMgehrenberg 100% (2)Yup definitely time to cut bait with him now, he's out of the rotation
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/16/2015 8:15 PMLGLP86 0% (0)Sadly...I'm off the train since Covington is back from my IR spot...I'm curious too but I can't hold.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/16/2015 8:03 PMstomper90 100% (2)Not played through two quarters...
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/16/2015 10:36 AMgehrenberg 0% (0)He's only shot 3-17 the last couple of games so I'm curious to see if he gets more run in the next game where his shot is falling
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/16/2015 10:34 AMCoverthepaint 0% (0)Web Houston plays at a high pace too. 18 minutes is still more than 5. I'm in a 20 team league, certainly holding on to him as long as he gets 18 minutes a game. To much upside compared to what's left on the wire.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/16/2015 10:03 AMLGLP86 0% (0)I'm holding him this week since their no better streams on my waiver for the week...But HOU needs to space the floor badly...
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/16/2015 9:43 AMkobe08000 0% (0)Rockets lost 3 straight and 2 with bigger lineup. They were struggling early in the season with bigger lineup as well. I'm holding onto Thornton for a while and see if there's any lineup change in upcoming weeks.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/15/2015 1:40 AMmcoleman 0% (3)The Rockets just scored 98 points in 3 straight losses, and 2 of those Thornton shot 2-8 and 1-9. Yes, his FG% will get him benched, but I'm holding onto MT.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/14/2015 10:45 PMEnderDantes 100% (6)Remember all those people who pestered BBM to bump this guy? That's why you stick to your guns BBM. Random unjustified bumps based on 3 games vs years of futility don't help anybody in the long run
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/14/2015 7:02 PMkylemckeown16 100% (2)Saturday's starting lineup might convince Thornton owners to cut bait. They're going big, even with Howard out.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/14/2015 5:21 PMPetrocelli 67% (3)When should we drop him? With Jones back, is the party over?
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/14/2015 1:19 PMkylemckeown16 0% (0)Webslinger - He is CJ Miles. They're the same player in a lot of respects. Chasing Thornton is fool's gold.Everyone wants him to have a consistently big role, but the situation is that he's a SG playing on the same team as the best SG in the NBA. Thornton having a big role is unlikely to b consistent all season.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/14/2015 2:26 AMwebslinger48 50% (2)Is he a rich man's CJ Miles or a poor man's CJ Miles? The jury is out, though their skill sets and projections are almost identical.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/13/2015 11:31 PMgehrenberg 0% (0)No I'm holding for obvious reasons but it wasn't encouraging that he barely even got on the court until Beverly got hurt
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/13/2015 11:06 PMJuggernaut 100% (2)That doesn't Look like he received a passing grade with that preformance.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/13/2015 7:47 PMjoshlloyd48 67% (3)Today a big test, coming off the bench.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 3:51 PMwebslinger48 0% (1)Coverthepaint...fair enough, but consider his value is concentrated almost entirely in 3's. Take 3's away and his value diminishes considerably. Also his 11-12 season he led the Kings in minutes and they had the #1 pace that year under Westphal. Expecting a repeat of that is a stretch. Again, I'm optimistic, but let's not go overboard.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 3:49 PMNYripper 0% (0)Also, got to chill on the injury speculation. Second post in a day's time suggesting that the Collison injury is "major" with no source.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 3:20 PMcastorius 100% (7)I think guys need to chill on the bump requests. If you want immediate changes, I suggest you use the custom projections. But I don't want the staff making changes in haste. Please do your due diligence before considering changes :D
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 2:56 PMLGLP86 0% (0)These managers probably want it to update asap for simple use but yeah use the customs option will work before they do or do not do it.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 2:55 PMCortmanwasdead 100% (5)hmm you guys asking for a bump in value do realise there is a custom projection option? just do it yourself, you don't have to follow the bbm projections like they are gospel...although they are typically really good.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 1:39 PMLGLP86 0% (0)@hugandi Probably dumping Collison if its a major injury...
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 1:36 PMCoverthepaint 0% (0)His per minute value was 27th the year after as well. Playing 24 minutes a game in 72 games. That's not like he was played 15mpg over 25 games or something.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 1:33 PMCoverthepaint 0% (1)Also 2011-12 Thorton was rated #28th best player on Bmonster as a 24 year old not even in his prime. He's already proven he could be a stud as a younger guy. I certainly don't look at this as some fluke when the guy is dead center of his prime. It wouldn't shock me if he maintained top 25 per minute production when he's had 3 top 40 ones already. The minutes is really the only variable here.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 1:27 PMCoverthepaint 50% (4)Web..MT has been a per minute beast all but one season he's played. He's also 28 years old which is prime age to have your career year. No one thinks he will continue to play 35+ minutes a game like he is but even at the 30 minutes BM now projects I think he's light. He's put up 3 top 40 per minute seasons already and one of those was the year he played 34 mpg
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 8:26 AMhugandi 0% (0)Dump TJ or Collison for him? Gotta make a move for a F with KD sitting...
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 8:18 AMdishinNswishin 0% (0)McConnell or Thornton. I'm a Wall owner without any other true PGs so would like to lock down assists. However, Thornton is the better multi-cat contributor.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 3:01 AMjoshlloyd48 100% (4)You pretty much have to own Thornton now, but my confidence in that remaining the case the entire season is not rock solid.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 2:06 AMwebslinger48 100% (5)One more thing…what has always prevented Thornton from logging big minutes in the past is his terrible defense. His value is tied to his 3-point shooting and once that hits a lull it will be more difficult to keep him on the floor for extended minutes. I hope he can keep it going but it is hard to disregard a six year track record.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 1:58 AMwebslinger48 100% (5)mcoleman is being ridiculous…Thornton is the 11th ranked player in per-game numbers so far. He's a career 43% shooter shooting 48% this season and he's well above his career rate on threes. I hope it lasts but he is playing out of his mind right now with ridiculous minutes. Sure, he could settle in as a top-100 guy but right now projecting more than that beyond the next month is wishful thinking.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 12:46 AMjoshlloyd48 100% (5)and yes, the weekly projections do change each day, because we are always adjusting based on what is happening in the league.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 12:41 AMjoshlloyd48 100% (5)It was a tough one with Thornton to bump his season long minutes, as when Jones last played, Thornton was a healthy scratch. Now, it was safe to assume he'd played himself into some minutes, but what role with Jones returning was unclear. Now, we've seen a game with Jones back. But, it's going to hard to see him getting 35 minutes per game for the rest of the season.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 12:30 AMmcoleman 0% (3)The weekly projections that you speak of change every day. AD, who was #1 by a large margin is now #17. Thornton was nowhere near 28th on Sunday. I expected him to play well and started him ignoring the predictions that BBM provided.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 12:14 AMDonnie99 100% (3)mcoleman, he was ranked 28th this week. His per 36 projection is in line with his 2015-2016 season stats. The biggest thing about the projection is his minutes. Which is hard to project at this point because of the rotation of McHale.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 12:05 AMmcoleman 33% (3)Thanks Donnie...not helpful. We are all aware of TJ coming back and Montiejunas being out. Thornton has been great, and a cloudy coach like McHale will ride this out. I don't need to know the obvious...I want some statistical updates based on helpful insight.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 12:03 AMGETsmo 100% (1)Think we will see a bump for Thornton. Can't blame BBM for not bumping right away...had to see minutes distribution with Jones back.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/12/2015 12:02 AMDonnie99 50% (2)And to make you feel better, Thornton is projected to be the 28th best player for this week.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 11:59 PMDonnie99 67% (3)The rotation of the rockets is messed up because of the injuries to Jones and Beverley and add the fact that Dwight is not playing back to backs and Motiejunas is on the sideline as well.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 11:54 PMmcoleman 33% (6)Why are we waiting for a bump here? This website is losing its advantage. Why would I pay for this analysis if you wait for 8 straight games to conclude that he is better than -0.83?
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 11:23 PMdishinNswishin 0% (0)Drop McConnell for him?
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 11:22 PMantbanks 0% (0)What's the record for most consecutive minutes played without a Free Throw Attempt?? What about most Field Goal Attempts without a Free Throw Attempt??
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 10:34 PMCoverthepaint 33% (3)Thornton is certainly playing for his job. On the very night Jones returns from injury and hes supposed to become an afterthought he drops the #1 fantasy performance of the day and on a heavy day. He's dicating at this point.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 10:09 PMshotcaller510 0% (0)Bump *.*
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 9:51 PMLGLP86 0% (0)I'm really thinking of dropping Kobe for him...Not sure whats happening with Kobe...But I don't think he's focus on Basketball now...What ya think?
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 9:37 PMgehrenberg 100% (1)He's been great I definitely think he gets more than 5 minutes per game going forward
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 9:32 PMCoverthepaint 0% (0)The guys 28 years old in the dead of his prime and had already been a top 30 player years prior when given the minutes. I've kept my eye on him for several years. He was my 12th keeper and clearly worth the risk in my 20 team league. Paid off.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 9:31 PMstomper90 0% (0)I got him after Kyle's post on the 8th. Just thought he would stay in the lineup with small ball OR have that Jason Terry like 6th man role.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 9:26 PMdishinNswishin 0% (0)Should at least earn a 6th man role i would think....i'm tempted to run and get him since this is a proven player in the league.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/11/2015 9:06 PMtc2000 100% (4)at what point is he gonna be must own, seriously killing it
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/9/2015 9:18 AMCoverthepaint 100% (2)Yeah, but you think he won't skim but 5 minutes off guys like Brewer and Beverly or that they won't use this small lineup up more often as well as it's working. Just have a hard time seeing a guy playing 40 minutes suddenly being buried behind Brewer when he's playing like 17 in the same games.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/8/2015 1:18 PMkylemckeown16 0% (0)CoverThePaint - Thornton is only a flier because the return of the Rockets' injured players could make Thornton an afterthought. His minutes are far from guaranteed, which is why everyone is lukewarm on him.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/8/2015 1:12 PMCoverthepaint 0% (0)Do we still believe he hasn't played his way into the rotation in some form? This isn't really a fluke if given the minutes he's been a top 30 fantasy player before.
 FilterMarcus Thornton11/3/2015 5:56 AMjoshlloyd48 0% (0)Replacing Terrence Jones as Rockets go super small. When Jones is back, he'll likely go back to obscurity. No long term value that I can project.
