“Thats a very deadly weapon, Mister Anderson”
Ryan Anderson – 34/11/eight 3’s He’s becoming the best three point shooter since Jesus Shuttlesworth. Er, I mean Ray Allen.
Austin Rivers – 3/2/2 He just doesn’t quite look ready to make an impact in the NBA yet. I’m not owning him anywhere right now.
Grevis Vasquez – 25/5/14 He was dropped in one of my leagues so just make sure he’s not available in yours.
Markieff Morris – 23/3/3 M & M is now starting and getting run. Should be a good pickup as long as he’s starting.
Chris Dudley and Luis Scola – These two are no longer starting and had awful games last night. If you can sell either of these guys and get something decent in return, Go!
PJ Tucker – 15/7/3 Had a good game off the bench and is worth monitoring.
Shannon Brown and Micheal Beasley – Both are starting and both were off last night. They will most likely be hit or miss scoring all year. Not guys I want to own.
Jermaine Oneal- 13/11/2blks Whoa, keep an eye on JO’s minutes. He could be a useful center if he gets some run. Just keep an eye on him.
Kevin Love – 24/13/3stls – K-Love is back!!
Nikola Pekovic – 18/10 is also back so make sure he’s not on your waivers.
JJ Barea and Alexey Shved – Both were quiet and both got out played.
News Flash! – All Blazer starters should be owned!
John Salmons – 4/5/2 Ignore
Demarcus Cousins – 14/7/4/2blks I’m officially starting to try and buy low.
Aaron Brooks – 17/2/3 Worth an add. However I won’t be adding in spite of the whole Isaiah Thomas benching (who was a DNP last night)
Mo Williams – Mo left with a foot sprain in the first quarter and did not return. Doesn’t sound serious so hold. If you are desperate for assists, Jamal Tinsley (2/6/12) might be worth a flier.
Paul Millsap – 10 pts Was quiet. Buy Low candidate.
Lou Williams – 6/3blks! Im holding.
Kyle Korver – 16/6/four 3’s Was hot last night. A good source of threes like always.
Michael -Kidd Gilchrist and Byron Mullens both had good games and should be owned.
Jeff Taylor – 16/3stls The rookie point guard is starting and is slowly improving. Just keep an eye on him.
Ramon Sessions – 22/4/4/2stls Playing well off the bench. 6th man of the year candidate?
Dion Waiters – 25/3/5 Will be getting a ton of run for the next month while Kyrie Irving is out. Own him.
Jeremy Pargo – 15 pts Running the show while Kyrie Irving is out. Should be serviceable for the next month.
Tyler Zeller – 13/9 Should see more minutes with Kyrie out. Watch his production.
JJ Reddick – 18/2/6 Getting a lot of run off the bench.
Kevin Martin – 3 pts Had a terrible game but have no fear, he’ll be back.
Jeff Green – 17/2/1stl/1blk Starting to get back to his old self. Remember, Jeff was good before he missed an entire year of basketball. Watch him and add if he’s ever names starter.
Matt Barnes – 1/5 Ugh. Hold
Gerald Wallace – Had an average game. Wait til he has a big game and see if you can sell high. Crash cant be Crash forever.
Reggie Evans – 6/12/2 If you are desperate for rebounds be my guest. I myself dont enjoy the one trick ponies.
Andre Blatche – 6 pts Ignore.
Kyle Singler – 6 pts He just doesnt excite me. Own at your own risk.
Andre Drummond – 13/13/2stls If he keeps getting 20-25 minutes like this, he will be worth owning. Monitor.
Rodney Stuckey – 8/4 I personally have seen enough. Im dropping him for new talent.
Jonas Valanciunas – 9/6/2 Fell back to earth. Will be streaky but should improve as the season progresses.
Jose Calderon – 5/1/3 Hopefully you sold high. I’m dropping.
Roy Hibbert – 10/11/2blks Starting to round into form. Yeah!
Antawn Jamison – 16/7 Getting more run with new coach if you need 3’s.
Metta World Peace – 16/3/3/2stls Is playing well and is in shape. Ronny still got game.
Chandler Parsons – 31/5/5/4stls He will get minutes all year. He to me is a very safe guy to own.
Toney Douglas – 11 pts/three 3’s Eh, Deep leaguers could use him for 3’s in a 4-5 game week.
Tyson Chandler – 6/7/3blks He either is not quite healthy or is being affected by the new play of his teammates. And by that I mean his teammates seem to be playing hard.
Klay Thompson – 16 pts four 3’s Don’t you dare drop him.
Harrison Barnes – Bad line. Off night. He’ll bounce back.
Jarret Jack and Carl Landry were very good off the bench and both should be owned.
