Hey Dan! After listening to last Friday’s pod and you talking about cash counting stats that you love, percentages, and defensive stats, and needing a name for it, I think I’ve got one... DUCATS! It’s money (cash), it’s cash counting stats, and weirdly thought of on my drive home today, could stand for: Dan’s Ultimate CATegorieS. Feel free to use it going forward, or not, but just thought I’d let you know cuz I thought it was pretty funny.
Anyway, speaking of ducats... who are some guys worth picking up in a Yahoo, 12T, standard 9C, redraft league, that are available in less than 60% of leagues? I’m 3.5 games back of first and playing the first place team next week.
Guys on the end of my bench are (last 30 days): Delon, Kleber, Temple, P.J. Tucker, Melton... KAT, JJJ on IL.
I do love the ducats. I love any reference to 90's hip hop, too!
Delon you can drop for sure. Is this roto or h2h?
Bah! The one piece of info I forgot to include... it’s H2H.
I know you’re going to dive into streaming for playoffs on the pod next week but just thought I’d jump the queue and ask here get the dialogue going.
DUCATs is quite good, co-sign!
Cheers, Tyler! Looks like we might have our winner, Dan. 😉
Hahaha, I suppose so!
One guy I'm hoping is back soon and could make a big dent is Bruce Brown on DET... not sure what his availability might be for your leagues.
Oh he’s available! Unfortunately I can’t put him on my IL as KAT and JJJ are there and I need to stream where I can this week to ensure a win and inching closer to my showdown for first next week.
Does Bone or the Pistons picking up McRae say anything about The Shark’s value or his injury?
Quick question/update. J-Rich just cleared waivers and I’m intrigued with DiVincenzo (Gia injury?) and Monte Morris (4 games next week). Not saying I have to pick up them all up but with JJJ coming back next week and I’m facing the first place team to determine season winner (who gets half the pot of real-life ducats) and a first round bye the following week, I need a few drops.
Delon/Kleber gain value with the injuries to the Mavs; Thad/Lauri had duds but should do a bit with LaVine out; Tucker stinks right now and I know you are off him. Temple is injured but he’s got 4 games next week and not sure how serious it is. Melton... I don’t even know what to say; maybe a drop?
What am I doing? Any other possibilities. No playing it safe here; let’s get that dough!
JJJ hasn't been ruled back in yet, so let's not bank on it just yet. I'm dropping anyone not playing and trying to get that pot. Listen to my weekend episode of Fantasy NBA Today for teams that have a strong stream combination
