Nine games on Saturday, so lots going on! I got a lot of questions about dropping Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and I would for about the top five on this list. As usual, all these guys should have blurbs.

 

Matthew Dellavedova - I assume he's owned everywhere.

 

Kris Dunn - You have to add him with Ricky hurt.

 

JaMychal Green - He won't have to guard KAT or Kristaps next time.

 

Sergio Rodriguez - He looks like he's going to run with the job.

 

Bojan Bogdanovic - Scoring a bunch. Needs more, though.

 

Taj Gibson - Playing very well.

 

J.R. Smith - He is playing with a lot of fire. Looks ready to have a good year.

 

Trevor Booker - Boring, but a double-double threat.

 

Matt Barnes - Super sneaky.

 

Kenneth Faried - He was bad at times, but so was Nurkic.

 

Wade Baldwin - He's not a "pickup" but he's a hold. Lots of upside and I love how he plays.

 

Courtney Lee - I expect him to be a top 100-125 guy.

 

Cody Zeller - Roy Hibbert is probably out for a bit.

 

Sean Kilpatrick - He's going to get a lot of late run.

 

John Henson - Please play him.

 

Justin Hamilton - Locked in for minutes and Bro-Lo is going to be managed.

 

Doug McDermott - He'll need an injury to have any consistency.

 

Tony Snell - Snelly Cat has some competition.

 

Rashad Vaughn - But he has to do it again.

 

Frank Kaminsky - A nice start for Frank with 11 points.

 

James Ennis - Still no target date for Chandler Parsons.

 

Jonathon Simmons - The ups and downs will drive you crazy.

 

Luis Scola - Upside is too low.

 

D.J. Augustin - Will do a lot of scoring in 20 minutes.

 

Richuan Holmes - A small winner if Brown plays two Cs.

 

Malcolm Delaney - He's a legit backup.

 

Isaiah Whitehead - Maybe GV is out for a bit.
