I just don't rate DeRozan very highly, and hate his up and down fantasy scoring. Plus the fact he has burnt me numerous times in the past.

Based on form I wanted & expected around 105 points from him this week... he is on 59 from 3 games so far so not a good chance to get what I wanted from him, and thus my disappointment in him.

I understand the San Antonio system just fine, but that still doesn't change my thoughts on DeRozan. He is nothing more than a volume shooter. If there was other options at SG/SF for this week and next I would have taken them but unfortunately there wasn't and at first opportunity DeRozan will one again be gone from my team.
Yeah ... SG2 / PF2 are tough spots to fill. Doncic and Ante might be the way to go in the end. Still undecided ... every time I'm about to trade him out he puts up decent scores and vice-versa when I have to hold him.

DeRozan had 39 points in that first game this week... then only scores 34 combined in the next 3 games. What a spud.
DDR has gone 18, 31, 35, 13, 41, 44, 33, 18, 27, 34, 15, 19, 23, 34, 20, 19, 20, 17, 31, 22, 12, 15, 36, 18, 29, 43, 33, 10, 16, 11, 26, 25, 14, 35, 35, 15, 41, 20, 39, 14, 39, 3, 17, 14 for the season so far.

So the good scores are there but plenty of rubbish in between. Consistency is what sets apart the great from the good IMO ... got one more week to either perform or piss off for good from my team!! If I'm in a generous mood that is ... Doncic doesn't have his average but is very consistent and wouldn't surprise me if he made an All-Star appearance this year.

Was expecting a little more from Bryant this week considering recent form, but at least he beat Ayton for the week even if was only by 10 points.

Wow, quite a few teams crashing through 1200 today. I've fallen short. Irving and DDR to blame this round.

1100+ here

DDR & George let downs but they have been good to me.

Option of Doncic or Anderson , chose the wrong one , but that was my choice

Ouch, a last min defeat by IDIG. Beal with a 150 was the heartbreaker.

Burks needed 27 - I thought I was safe. So close!

1194 all out here. Looking to be about 50 pts below par this week.

- One missed game from Ante but he still put up a good score from the 3 he played.

Rookie / bench player averages for the week: Doncic (28.25), White (18.50), Osman (13.50), Bridges (12.67), Knox (12.25), Robinson (DNP).
- No real complaints there ...

This weeks notes:

- 4GW captain choices: Drummond, Griffin, Irving 4 games in 6 days or take a 3 game gun
- HOU and POR start or end the week on a B2B split (Capela, Harden, Lillard, Nurkic etc)

- Players averaging over 20 under consideration this week: Conley, Harris, Gallinari, Gasol, Harrell 4,4,4; Ayton, Booker, Jordan 4,4,2; Irving 4,3,4; Aldridge, Drummond, Griffin 4,3,3; Sabons 4,2,4; AD, Jrue 3,4,3; and a whole suite of mid / rookie priced players

- BKN and BOS are the first game starting at 1130 hrs AEDT (only a 6 game slate)

-So many trades options available this week. Prices changes will narrow it down for me as usual

Exum - > Jackson (NOP)
Anderson - > Mitchell
Abrines - > O'Neale (UTA)

don't really know 2 of them but that will do for this week

Harden , Westbrook (Jackson)
DeRozan , Mitchell (Delladedova)
Towns (Bryant)
Leonard , George (O'Neale)
Jokic , Vucevic (Eubanks)

Harden (C)

looks like Doncic can be SG2 so will bring him back next week.

Will milk Bryant as much as I can and then try and get Antetokounmpo/Davis
