I did offer 5 bargain options for last night with mixed results. If you happen to take up the cue and start Theo Maledon and Robert Williams, you must have won your league. Maledon had 11 points, four rebounds, and nine assists (although the lack of defensive stats is a bummer) while Timelord swatted six shots on top of two points, four rebounds, four assists, and a steal. The other picks were Elfrid Payton, Shake Milton, and Terence Davis II and it was TD2 who flamed out in the one-point loss to Read More
Two series were over on Aug. 29th, but not without some solid performances from the losing teams. As expected, CJ McCollum, Carmelo Anthony, Jusuf Nurkic, and Anfernee Simons all gave it all they got. Simons was especially productive relative to his salary and McCollum and Nurkic both got to the 50 FP territory. If you followed my advice to go for Giannis Antetokounmpo, then you are also rewarded with another 50+ FP performance. Aside from Simons, Terrence Ross and Dennis Schroder were the only Read More
Eric Gordon did what he was supposed to do in a fantasy-perspective, giving us 23 points plus extras. In my bargain picks yesterday, three were alright and one was pretty much non-existent despite playing 38 minutes. As I have said, you don't need to roster all five, but this is simply a guide so you can fill the rest of your roster with players in the near-minimum. Now, there were only two series remaining after Miami and Toronto brought their brooms. This makes the roster maneuvering a little Read More
I pretty much aced four of the five bargain picks yesterday, with the only casualty being James Ennis. Gary Clark took over the job and was solid (6 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, two steals) on the near-minimum range. I also suggested Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Chris Paul, who I figured will play with desperation, and I hit the bulls-eye. A team that is built around James Harden, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, another stud, with the value picks I suggested, and that should be enough to win most 50-50s Read More
A couple of exciting Game 7's in the Conference Semifinals just ended and I think I'd get over that Kawhi Leonard shot to win the series. Here are some stats to delve on to celebrate an exhilarating day of basketball. 1.) Kawhi does it... again... AP Photo | Chris Szagola The Klaw hit the game and series winner but he was brilliant ALL SERIES LONG. He averaged 34.7 points over seven games and capped the series with 41-8-3 and three steals. 2.) The Surge of Serge Dan Hamilton, Read More
