The beginning of the End!

It’s that time of the year where we try to end our fantasy basketball seasons strong and get ready to go to battle in the playoffs. How’s your team right now? Hopefully, it’s strong. Real strong. Come Sunday, we will be making those decisions on what players to ditch and what players to hang on to throughout the duration of the playoffs. It looks like we’ll have a few good players back this week like an Eric Bledsoe, which is perfect timing, but we know they all won’t be like that. It’s also bad news for Gerald Green owners so there’s always another side of the story. Anyways, lets dive into some player news and finish this week out strong! Together……

Tyson Chandler – Out on Monday due to personal reasons. I expect him to be back later this week.

Gerald Henderson – Out again Monday but could be close. Chris Douglas-Roberts has been playing well in his stead.

Victor Oladipo – Is playing through an ankle injury. He should be fine.

Avery Bradley – Sounds like he could return Friday. Jerryd Bayless’ value may not drop much considering he should get more looks in a bench role.

Jonas Valanciunas – 4/9/2blks JV has been one of the bigger disappointments this year.

Evan Turner – 2 points yesterday in 25 minutes. What a critical move by the Pacers. Those Heat are really shaking in their shorts now……

Andrew Bynum – Could play this week. See Evan Turner blurb.

Nerlens Noel – Sounds like their is a possible return in April but I doubt the 76ers front office allows it.

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett – Both playing Monday.

Dwyane Wade – Also playing Monday.

Anderson Varejao – Returned to action this weekend and will be eased into playing time. Sounds like he will play around 15 minutes on Wednesday.

JJ Reddick – Increasing his workouts as of late. Could be a great add if we luck out and get a return in the next week or two. Could be a good stash if you have a first round bye in the playoffs.

Steve Novak – 15/1 with 5 treys. Need cheap threes?

Demarcus Cousins – 28/20/3/1/1 Managed to foul out without getting a technical foul. So,  theres that.

Marcus Thornton – 27/3/1/2stl Played motivated against his old team. Where’s the motivation every night Marcus?

Jodie Meeks – 42/2/4stl with 6 treys. Jodie had himself a game yesterday. Looked as if he was throwing a beach ball into the ocean all game. One thing is true, he should get plenty of shots up the rest of the way.

Tony Wroten – 30/1/4stls This kid can score. Hope you listened to hecman a week before the trade deadline!

Kyle O’Quinn – 9/5/1/1/1 Got a start on Saturday but only played 17 minutes. If he ever gets 25-30 minutes down the stretch, watch out!

  1. My team is strong but not real strong. The good news is that I’ve clinched a playoff spot. The bad news is I currently own only a HALF game lead for the #2 seed! Even worse news, my final regular season matchup next week is vs. the #1 seed. I have plenty of moves remaining (17) that I can use to make a final push. Here is my roster (14 team, H2H, 9-cat):

    Parker, Knight, B. Roberts, Marshall
    Ellis, Matthews, J. Butler
    Thad Young, Ilyasova
    Aldridge, Ant Davis, Sully, Frye
    Valanciunas

    Some notable guys on the WW include:

    Antic, O’Quinn, Redick, Thornton, Granger, Olynyk, Mo Williams, Shumpert, Richard Jefferson, Bayless, Ryan Kelly, Novak..

    I will do the math in the coming days to determine which stats I really need, but at first glance at my team (and my opponents), I’m leaning toward adding steals, points, rebounds, and threes (in that order). Who knows, I may be fine with what I have. I’m sure you guys have your own teams to attend to right now but I hope you can still help us out in crunch time!

  2. Good afternoon jfort, quick question in a 9 cat 12 team h2h my bench is olynk, Reggie Jackson and Brian Roberts. Reggie n Brian both kinda do the same thing similar stats for the most part. Would you drop one of those guys for wroten just to have some variety on my bench I guess… Good idea ? Thx for the advice

  3. Or Collison is out there and his stats seem to b better than Brian or Reggie.. so drop Reggie or Brian for wroten or Darin and also should you hold on olynk over pero ?? Thx again
