Fantasy Basketball Advice for Week Four

bad postnot very good postgood postvery good postgreat post (3 votes, average: 4.67 out of 5)

Week three was an exciting week but seemed a little hungover after the festivities of weeks one and two. The Cavaliers are coming together and the Knicks are becoming almost unwatchable. There are more good big men than expected this year but the point guard still reigns supreme. Chris Paul has past his prime and is being surpassed by Stephan Curry and Damian Lillard for the best point guard in the league title. Kevin Durant can’t come back soon enough, for the game, OKC and his fantasy owners but until then we will march on.

Love hate for this week, no streamers included but maybe some players to trade for, get rid of or sit if roosters are full.


vucevich Nikola Vucevic is complete monster for the Orlando Magic. Many people don’t know who this Vucevic is, a Montenegrin born power forward who played college ball at the University of Southern California. He is a double-double machine, not 15 points and 11 rebounds more like 25 points and 12 rebounds. With soft teams on the schedule this week he will continue being a beast.

rondo Rajon Rondo is returning to form, almost dropping a triple double last night and beginning to trust his teammates. He is a really good player, an elite point guard and he looks like 09 Rondo on the court. Expect him to continue in fine form for the rest of the week and the season.

jennings Brandon Jennings has been very impressive this season. Averaging 23 points and 6 assists he is playing under control. He always had the talent to be a top point guard in the league and with Stand Van Gundy reining him in and a talented cast around him he is performing.

KEVIN_01 Kevin Love is starting to understand how to play with the King. He knows if he stays in his spots he will get shots and he is using his one on ones to his benefits. He is rebounding at a tremendous rate and running the fast break from the backcourt like Aaron Rogers in the shotgun offense.


Derick ROs Derrick Rose is proving with his mouth and his butt on the bench that he is saving himself. Bulls fans hope for the playoffs others thinking for future activities. That doesn’t really matter but for this week, he probably won’t play a game and if he does, he probably won’t play four quarters. It is sad because he is one of the most exciting players in the game.

blake Blake Griffin recently accused of “slapping” a man, has been spending some time in Las Vegas. He has had a fine start to the season but is not improving. The problem is he cannot reach is full potential with Deandre Jordan clogging the paint. For Griffin to reach his potential of a superstar he needs more room to operate in the paint. Until he gets that, his number will remain the same, good but not a great.

gay Rudy Gay just got paid, a 40 million-contract extension over 3 years, sources told but this does not bode well for Kings fans. Gay a notoriously streaky player has been playing great to start the season. But with two, 20 plus point leads blown by the Kings, there has to be some discord in the locker room. Conflict leads to anger and Gay has been known to avoid conflict. Can he keep it up? Or will he take his money and relax? This week looks rough, with Anthony Davis coming to town and the rest of the week isn’t easier. The Kings will face the Clippers and Blazers.

Smith J.R. Smith exemplifies everything that is wrong with the New York Knicks. Bricking game wining shots and not playing defense when it counts. The Knicks have the Bucks, Timberwolves and 76ers coming up. Not the elite NBA teams which would seem like a great matchup for Smith. He usually takes these matchups however and uses them for an excuse to shoot every time he touches the ball. Which is bad for everyone associated with him.

    I’m curious what you think about Jimmy Butler. He is having a very good year this year, and with D-Rose taking 3 games off for every game he plays, Butler will be counted on much more in the scoring category than he has in the past. So far, he seems like he is up for the challenge. The question is whether he can keep this up while defending the opposing teams best player and playing 40+ minutes every night. I really like Butler and was curious what you thought of him and his future output.

    Great point! Butler is having a career year this year and it should continue. I think if Rose is on the court it even improves Butlers ability to score because Rose opens up the court. Let’s hope he can survive the 40+ minutes and continue to improve. RIght now though, he is a top shooting guard for fantasy options.

    Do you think Rondo is the future in Boston, or do you think he will be traded for some picks and some young talent. Because he is getting himself back into all-star form once again he will be able to net the Celtics some great talent if they do choose to part ways. I would love to see him play for the Lakers next to Kobe.

    I would also would love to see Rondo play with Kobe but I also would love to see Rondo play with Carmelo Anthony. Anthony’s game would work better with Rondo because he can play the post and knock down threes, Kobe has had trouble playing off the ball. Both would be great pairs but would the Celtics trade Rondo to their long time rivals the Lakers, probably unlikely.
    Who do you think would be a better pair? What about Kobe and ..Derrick Rose?

    Well the Kobe Derrick Rose conversation is a non conversation be cause unless Kobe leaves LA, then they will never play together. I do however think that Rondo will be traded at some point, and although the Lakers may be a historical rival of the Celtics, they currently are not. I can see Rondo going to LA before I can see him staying in the east and going to the Knicks.

    Also, that Rudy Gay contract is ridiculous… hes not worth that much money for being such a ball hog and streaky shooter…

    I agree with you on Rudy Gay. He’s a volume shooter and similarly to Melo, he’s a ball stopper. There is no flow to an offense with players like that. Great 1 on 1 player, but he won’t be a key player on a top 3-4 seed team in the NBA.

    Butler for sure is a Sleeper, and I like the “Greek Freek” Giannis Antetokounmpo. If you want you could check out my article on sleep a This was made made before the season, I will have to do an update one.

    Really frustrated, I am in a H2H Most Categories format on ESPN and I have tied twice already. I took KD in the 6th round somehow, and I basically get 6 less games a week then my opponent. I am waiting patiently.
