Is Michael Porter Jr. worth picking up now? 

Post#1 » by 13th Man » Sat Oct 6, 2018 7:39 pm

I just picked him up off free agency in my ESPN League, anyone else think that he will come into value this season, especially the later half of the year if he remains healthy?

One of these situations where I'd want to stash a gem for later on if he pans out. Hopefully my other PFs can cover for him before then or if he can garner modest points the first half of the season I'd be happy with that.

Nope. We may not see him for a while and I think it's pretty unlikely that he's worth much down the stretch. The Nuggets are super deep and he's never going to be one of the main options on the floor, which is a big problem because he's not going to be a D stats guy. Not enough upside to be worth stashing. I wouldn't want to miss out on one of the very useful FAs that are going to pop up in the first couple weeks because I'm holding a prayer like Porter.

Thanks. I don't see him on anybody's immediate radar either. May drop him for Bobby Portis who can provide instant dividends.
