Default What are the chances Dunleavy keeps playing like this?

He's had an impressive first few games, especially by Mike Dunleavy standards.

27 points/8 rebounds/3 assists and a block tonight. More importantly his shooting percentages have been pretty good, and I'm not doing all that well so far in FG%.

He's starting and getting 35+ minutes, and Indy seems to be using him as a go-to guy. He's on the FA list in my league. What do you think about dropping Kyle Korver to pick up Dunleavy?

I'd drop Korver for Dunleavy unless you are hurting for 3PTM. I'll be the first to admit I doubted Dunleavy coming into this season. I even advocated picking up Kapono over him before it became apparent that Delfino is going to be getting more minutes than him in Toronto.
The only question I have about Dunleavy is will his scoring and rebounding keep up when O'Neal gets back to his old self and Troy Murphy returns.

He probably won't keep it up for long but is still worth a spot on your team. But probably only as a late draft kinda guy.

Gun-leavy will continue his success. Dropping Korver is sketchy...who else can you drop?

I think his chances are good --with only a bit of a drop in numbers from what we've seen so far. If you've watched Indiana play they are opening up and shooting it from everywhere. This team will continue to score close to 100 pts per and JO has commented on how he's not looking to score but change the game by sharing the ball.

I could maybe afford to drop Lamar Odom, who's a little sketchy for my tastes going into this season. If Dunleavy keeps up something close to his production so far he'll at least match what Odom would give me.

I could lose Q-Rich too.

Lamar is top 30 when healthy. Do not drop him.

Qrich can go for the time being. And I mean drop him now. Qrich is only good for shining his invisible horns. Or knocking on his head.

Please don't drop Odom. Dunleavy is an upgrade over Korver at this point, but as Sobe said, that could change. I would grab Dunleavy now, and if he's still on your waiver wire, you probably will have other role players to grab if he dissapoints you later in the season when the Pacers get completely healthy.

...he's officially been snapped up by someone else. I was too slow. Meh.

And I actually am hurting in 3PM right now, so I doubt I'll be letting Korver go. I'm leading in Assists and Rebounds, and a close second in FT% and Points, so I'm happy for now. Arenas' dismal shooting has me a lot lower in the FG% cat than I could be.

What about swapping Q-Rich for Martell Webster?

Seems like Martell is at least a third option on his team and there's probably a concerted effort to get him the ball this year, where Q so far seems to be buried under Randolph, Curry, Jamal Crawford (who's also on my roster) and probably Marbury too.

Martel has been getting stronger each game. Qrich used to be a 3-5 3-point machine but like you said there are 4 LEGIT players ahead of him.

As of today i take webster until qrich returns.
