Default Rudy Fernandez...

So I noticed most people on yahoo are dropping him, was his early hot start a fluke or is he just in a little lul now?


Notable FA for my 12 team 9 cat H2H league are:

Yi Jianlian
Steve Blake
Joel Przybilla
Quentin Richardson
Brandan Wright
Trevor Ariza
Larry Hughes

I just dropped him and took a chance and picked up Andray Blatche after his huge performance tonight. Might be a huge mistake but worth the risk in my case as I really don't need Rudy's 3s all that much. Rudy helps in 3s and thats basically it really, his FT% is great but he doesnt shoot that many. Doesn't get many assists or boards either. He gets you a steal a game but alot of guys can do that on the wire. With Webster coming back soon, Portland just has too much talent for him to flourish and become a real fantasy contributor.

I'd stay put. The value is still there, and we're bound to see some inconsistency from a guy in his first NBA season.

What makes Rudy so valuable in fantasy in your opinion besides 3s?

He's not SO valuable, but he's the kind of player that can catch you up in a category like threes very quickly. I also like the way Portland's management seems commited to giving him mins, even though he's in a wicked little slump of late. I also think his name is generating enough buzz that it helps significantly in a 2for1 kind of deal. Add over one steal per, decent blocks for a guard, great ft%, plenty of international experience at a high level of play, and the fact that Roy has missed 33 games in his first two seasons, I like what he can offer a fantasy team.

Plus, the only other guy I'd want to own on Matt's list is Yi, and I have no desire to try and guess which games I should start him and which games I should bench him, because he seems to be a total crapshoot.
