Chef Chat- Tuesday after the games
You're very welcome man, thanks for stopping by!
That trade doesn't look so hot now as Vooch has been playing out of his mind and Love is still on the mend.
I think Vooch and Dipo will settle into similar value and Love should be able to beat Joe Ingles,even though Love is still somewhat of a risk for DNPs when he gets back. But can't do anything about that now so gotta look towards the future.
If your team is middling it can be one of several reasons- there have been weeks where I was down 7-10 games on my opponent juts due to scheduling issues so that could be part of it.
In h2h, you need to have your core categories you're trying to win every week. Have you identified those?
And since Isaac and Slo Mo (and Green) are low usage guys, I'd use McGruder's spot to steam each week. If you don't want to stream every week, I'd maybe use his spot to get more assists/3s/pts.
Hey g, at HB I'm probably the most down on Isaac so my opinion is biased. If you heard Dan's pod today, he recommends holding for longer- maybe a few months even.
I'd say if your team is doing well, you try to hold him as long as possible. If not, or if there's a super good add on the wire, you have to at least consider moving on.
thanks so much chef! appreciate your feedback!!
and yes i remember in another blog post i asked you similar (like early at draft time). and you suggested i shore up my assist cause that one is my borderline 5th category that i can win. my consistent stat for sure is fg%, turnovers has been a tight one but i won it so far each week, blocks, steals, and rebs. but for sure i do see my early weeks that i do lose cause rough schedule (like the week when i only get drummond once that week).
and for sure i lose out on 3's and fts%. and i do hear ya about mcgruder. my league has some sharks that really keep an eye on who gets dropped (including me). so far the highest assist per game player that's on the waiver is like jj barea, dj augustin, arcidiacono, monte morris. if you're in my shoes, would you drop mcgruder for these options?
Good looks chef. Appreciate it. I’m going to hold. The best thing on my wire is Bembry or Mudiay so I’ll wait. I’m punting this week anyway bc I have oladipo and Dunn giving me donuts. Thanks again!
I would prefer to stream for schedule depending on week- but I'd take a chance on Barea or Augustin for sure.
You know it.
Man, even with Isaac dropping another dud, I'm not buying Mudiay and Bembry can help counting stats but if you're trying to protect either percentage, I'd pass on him too.
Alonzo Trier - really like this kid's aggressiveness and game.
What're you thinking ROS? Should I drop any of these dudes for this guy (I'm assuming he'll be gone in my league by tomorrow...people add so fast) :
-Bazemore (who is coming off the bench now)
Me too Frog (I had him and dropped earlier in the season) but as a rookie he's gonna be inconsistent and he doesn't get def stats or a whole lot of 3s so he's barely top-140 over the last week despite all the points.
I think it's a risky move since all your guys (except Isaac) have solid roles and have been playing pretty well.
If you wanna try him, Ariza looks like the drop since I think he'll be trending down later on.
Hi Chef, if I am willing to trade for Steph Curry. Besides Kemba, who else do you think I might give up to make it an OK deal for me? Josh Richardson or Niko Mirotic might be the choice and I might ask for someone else back in return say Taurean Prince or J Allen. Thanks a lot in advance!
U the man. Thanks for setting me straight
I'd give up Niko and J Rich for just Curry and not even ask for anything back.
So a team offered me a bit of a re-do on a trade we made earlier in the season.
I'll be honest, I too have been having 2nd thoughts on this deal ever since I hit accept.
10CAT (ORB/DRB), H2H
Giannis & Justin Holiday
Embiid & Bledsoe
I'd be getting Jojo back, and he's the only keeper eligible player in this deal (for a 2nd rd pick next year).
I'm likely gonna have to end up punting assists. Currently my only eligible PG is Josh Richardson. I'll be getting Dunn back soon, but I'm banking on his defense. Bledsoe would give me a lil bump in that category as he is averaging a career high in assists. But I'm mainly hoping he can balance out the FG% hit I'm taking in the swap.
Thanks in advance Chef!
I don't think it's so bad to reverse it (Jojo at second round will be sweet for next year too).
Even in punt assists Jo is still the highest ranked guy and gains value while everyone else loses value- Jrue actually loses more value than Bledsoe in that punt build and ends up ranked lower than him (79 vs. 96)
So you get the 1st and 3rd best players in that deal if you get Embiid back and since H2H sched is a wash, I think it works.
I'd do it.
I would too!! And justin H wont be top 40 all year considering a lot of bulls will be coming back... 4th option on starting 5 when they are full strength?
