Which 3 keepers? 

Post#1 » by Duffman100 » Wed Dec 2, 2020 4:15 pm

Head to head, standard category yahoo league.

Potential Keepers

Tatum
Lavine
Mitchell
Gobert
Fox

I'm pretty solid with Tatum and Lavine.

So it becomes a 3 headed race... thoughts on Mitchell vs Gobert vs Fox?

I prefer all three of those guys to Levine. I would probably go Tatum, Mitchel, Gobert because I am a sucker for big men and blocks are tough to get. But all four have very similar ranks so it is down to personal choice. You could go based on age, or look at what other managers will be keeping and see if there is a strategy you can take advantage of.

Really? Lavine is such a huge stat beast. 25, 5, 4 with 3 3pm, 1.5 steals, 80% from the line, not tanking your FG%.

The guy is a machine.

Blocks and mediocre FT% can be found in FA market.
You'll regret keeping Gobert over Mitchell ...
Gobert is also closing in on 30 years old at 7'1" ... Gravity and day-to-day impact/wear-and-tear will put him on the IR before long ...

Think of who will give you the most trade value ... (personally Mitchell and Fox can get you more in return than Gobert) ...

The debate is between Mitchell and Fox ... drop Gobert ... (he'll be around a few rounds into your draft ... Fox and Mitchell surely will go within 1st two rounds of the draft).

And you're 100% right about Lavine ... stud.

#1 Tatum
#2 Lavine

#3 Mitchell (edge in PPG, 87% FT ... can average 27 PPG this year ... next Bradley Beal?)
#3 Fox (slight edge in APG, only 70% FT, 0.5 BPG <- half a block per game out of your Point Guard is nice!)

Boils down to scoring settings ...
[I'm so torn between Fox and Mitchell] I hope you can draft the one you don't keep BACK to your team in the 1st round.


#9 Gobert

#9 Gobert


This was in line with my thinking. I can pick up rebounds and blocks, but Gobert with meh FT, no 3PM, no assists...just dies in 3 categories.

I think I'm going Mitchell. Having owned Mitchell, I know he isn't that player in the Denver series. But he's still only 23.

Just sucks to give up on Fox

I pick Mitchell. Based on mock drafts he has high second round value while it’s actually Lavine/Gobert that have been drafted lower. The thing I’d say that with Gobert yes he gets you blocks, but you can still get quality big men up until the 8/9th round. Tatum, Lavine and Mitchell will keep you competing in scoring, 3’s, FT% and they are a pretty good source of assists and steals.

Plus all 3 of those guys will have the most trade value
