With just over a month and a half in Yahoo standard leagues (of course, check your own settings) it appears trade season is upon us, at least if what’s been going on in my leagues…
January 18, 2019, 11:00 pmRudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs
Rudy Gay scored 22 points (no 3s) to go with five assists, four rebounds, a block, a steal and five turnovers in Friday’s win over the Wolves.
Gay only took 14 shots so his usage wasn’t impacted by DeMar DeRozan missing the game. Aside from the turnovers, it looks like a typical Rudy Gay line and hopefully he’ll resume his top-65 play for the season. Bryn Forbes chipped in 10 points and two 3s in the win.
January 3, 2019, 11:00 pmBryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes went 7-of-10 overall and 6-of-7 from deep to finish with 20 points in Thursday's win over the Raptors.
Forbes and Derrick White (19 points, four assists, a steal, a 3-pointer, 8-of-11 shooting) vastly outperformed Toronto's guards in this one and were a big part of the difference tonight. The Spurs went 13-of-27 from deep, thanks largely to Forbes, while the Raptors went 6-of-20 as a team. There's another big part of the difference. Both Forbes and White are low-end players to own in 12-team formats, with White and his upside the preferred play.

Bryn Forbes scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting in 30 minutes of action as the Spurs got a big win over the Nuggets on Wednesday.
Forbes added two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists and two steals to the stat sheet. Marco Belinelli came off the bench for 12 points with four rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers. Forbes has played well as of late and should be on deep league radars. Belinelli is solely a shooting specialist who can provide value in points and 3-pointers.

Bryn Forbes cooled off with 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting, two threes, five boards and one assist over 29 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Rockets.
Forbes was coming off performances of 17 and 22 points but this is more in line with what owners should expect.
December 22, 2018, 12:38 amBryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes followed up his 17-point performance on Wednesday with a 22-point gem on Friday against the Wolves.
Forbes is looking good as he shot 7-of-12 from the field and added four rebounds, seven assists and one block in the win. His growing confidence is shining through and is a strong candidate to fully breakout in the coming weeks if he keeps this up.

Bryn Forbes bounced back on Wednesday as the Spurs blew out the Magic 129-90, chipping in 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting with four rebounds, three triples.
Forbes lit it up tonight but failed to record an assist or any defensive stats, making it just a partially good performance. He scored a combined six points in his last two games, so this was still a nice turn for him. Derrick White played alongside him in the starting lineup and he had nine points, six assists, one 3-pointer and one block to his name.
December 12, 2018, 12:12 amBryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes scored 24 points on 8-of-14 shooting (5-of-5 from deep, 3-of-3 from the line) with 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal in Tuesday's blowout win over the Suns.
This is Forbes' best game of the season and his season-long numbers are much more instructive than a laugher against the Suns. He has been worth owning in 14-16 team standard leagues and we don't see that changing much.
November 30, 2018, 11:08 pmBryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes played 21 minutes in Friday's 136-105 blowout loss to the Rockets and delivered 10 points, two threes and two assists.
Derrick White outplayed Forbes in this outing with 11 points, five rebounds, nine dimes and one trey in 33 minutes but we can attribute this to garbage time. Until White can show that he consistently outperform Forbes, stick with Bryn in deep leagues.
November 26, 2018, 10:16 pmBryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes scored 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting with three 3-pointers, two rebounds and six assists on Monday.
Forbes has 15 games with at least two 3-pointers made and is a specialist at best. He joins the ranks of Landry Shamet and Wayne Ellington as 3-point streamers while Patty Mills (17 points on 7-of-10 shooting with two triples, one rebound, two assists and a steal) doesn't have a large enough role to have him rostered in 12-team leagues.
November 24, 2018, 2:06 amBryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes scored 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting with three rebounds, two assists and three treys over 26 minutes in Friday's win over the Pacers.
These are the good nights so if that can do it for you then you know what you're shooting for, at least.
November 22, 2018, 1:11 amBryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes hit just 3-of-11 shots for six points, four rebounds and two assists over 26 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies.
Forbes will hit the radar with some bigger games but he's mostly just a deep league asset.
November 19, 2018, 10:40 pmBryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes scored 20 points on 7-of-8 shooting on Monday, adding five 3-pointers and a steal to his line in a loss to the Pelicans.
Forbes is back as the nominal starting point guard, even if it's others who do most of the playmaking. He's going to float around the cut line in 12-team leagues and looks like a better player to own than Derrick White. If you need threes he's worth an add.
November 13, 2018, 12:25 amBryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes scored 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting (including two threes) with zero rebounds, four assists and one steal over 29 minutes in Monday's loss to the Kings.
Forbes will hover around the top-150 with an advantage in 9-cat leagues, making him better suited for 14-16 team formats rather than your typical 12-team league.
The holiday and New Year's celebrations are done and it's time to get back to life, back to reality. The reality is that there are only 8 more weeks (scoring periods) left for standard Yahoo…
