Kyle Lowry Fantasy Overrated

Fantasy Insider: Brandon Funston | NBA.com

nah, he puts up great numbers all across the board. His FG% will be improved as he isn't playing hurt anymore, and he's the number 1A option on this team now.

just4_raps 10-29-2012 11:05 PM

i agree. just was quite shocked at how overrated Funston thinks he is.

If he still played in Houston or was in NY ot Chicago they'd be blowing a load over him. I watched the NBA fantasy show tonight and they said Valanciunas is not an NBA starter.

for lowry fg% is not a huge deal because he shoots so little, he's not a great scorer and he gets a lot of his points from FT%. Raw percentages are very misleading in fantasy basketball. And he has so many strengths, contributions across the board except blocks.

And JV is a big unknown, if he can stay on the court, he could be a fantasy beast, 10/8/2 with 55% FG, 80%+ FT and low TOs is top 15 in a league without 3pts and probably top 40 in a standard 9 cat league. Just a question if he can get the minutes he needs to put up those numbers.

Think he was ranked 111, owned by 73%

He's owned in most leagues

In a 12 team yahoo fantasy league I picked lowry, Bargn and JV. Got lots of ridicule from other managers, but I feel like it could be breakout years for all 3.

All I have to say is who really gives a shit what anyone has to say about our players and our team. We have Lowry hes legit nothing spectacular...he wont hurt us/ so we hope for the best. He will make us better because Calderon will be better playing fewer minutes ....30 plus minutes is too much for Caldy.Cant wait for the season to start....i hope we are able to get off on strong in the first quarter. Its been disappointing so far that our starters are sucking in the first quarter.

the trick is to pick players who you think will have a breakout year without reaching for them. If lowry is rated 50th and you think he'll be better than that, there's no point in picking him 40th (unless you expect him to rank 30th ..). If you expect him to be 40th and you pick him 40th, best case scenario (you are right and the "experts" are wrong), you break even, worst case scenario you fall behind ...
