    I think ppfd is more aligned with the value of moving the chains vs ppr in terms of correlation to scoring points.  

    Issue is first downs gained are not a typical statistic that is known compared to receptions.  If more sites listed that in its standard stats for players, ppfd might become more utilized 

    Yeah, that's true. I think PPFD makes more sense, but the biggest problem is that you can't really get that number at first blush from sites like Yahoo or ESPN.

  2. Is Points Per First Down Better Than Points Per Reception?

    I ask because first downs are more important than standard receptions. And if someone gets a reception for negative yardage, then they still wind up with positive points. Plus, there are check-down receptions which don't require as much skill as big play first downs or first downs made in double coverage. Also, first downs can apply to important/ pivotal rushing plays, so you can award a rush-heavy RB (like Jordan Howard) some extra points for getting that first down.

    I was thinking something like this

    0.25 PPR
    0.25 PPFD

    That way, if you get a first down reception, you still get 0.5 points, like you would in Half PPR.

    Luka and Ben together would be a weird fit, imo.

    Agreed. I'd rather the Mavs go after Kevin Love than Ben Simmons.

    But I do think the Mavs would empower Ben to shoot some more 3s since he wouldn't be a primary ballhandler/playmaker next to Luka. It's something to consider, but pass. Mavs should get a tough rebounding big instead, and ideally, more 3 point shooters on the wing. Oh, and they need another ISO player, but those are hard to come by.

    I think Bagley would be a nice addition for Dallas. I loved Marvin at Duke and it's been super disappointing to see his career thus far with the Kings but I still think he can be a good player if he's given the right opportunity. 

    I would have liked him more with Carlisle than Kidd tbh, but I like what Kidd is doing with empowering other players on the roster not named Luka. That just has to happen if this team wants to take the next step.

    Well that and they gotta get another legit starter. KP, THJ, Powell, and DFS is not going to cut it. Need to make multiple trades, no doubt.

    What would Sacramento need back to trade Bagley? Seems like a waste to just let him sit on the bench. As well as the Bulls bench is playing, they will need some size and minutes from the PF spot as the year goes on.

    That'd be a good landing spot for him. I kinda want the Mavs to make a push for him though tbh.

    This is the least talented roster in the league. After Luka it’s embarrassing, and it’s been this way for a decade.

    Dwight Powell, WCS, DFS, Sterling Brown, Maxi Kleber… none of these guys are rotation guys on a playoff team.

    Their gigantic off-season consisted of Reggie Bullock, Moses Brown, Sterling Brown, and Frank Ntilikina. I mean LOL.

    Tim Hardaway Jr. is a #4 option or 6th man. He’s our #2. Porzingis is the most injury prone player in the league.

    Brunson is solid, but they will most likely overpay the **** out of him.

    Draft-wise they’re the worst in the league. Not TWO years ago - TWO YEARS - they had three top 35 picks. Their first rounder, Josh Green, isn’t an NBA player. Their two high, hyped 2nd round picks just TWO YEARS LATER, got waived this off-season.

    Its an embarrassing organization and it starts with Cuban. Luka will 100% demand a trade by next year and I don’t blame him one bit.


    Cuban kept guys around for too long. But Kleber and DFS would be in the rotation of a playoff team. Same with Brunson and Bullock. 

    I think they should start Moses Brown though, and especially so if KP is out. If KP's out, then start Moses and Kleber as your bigs and put Luka, THJ, and DFS out there on the perimeter. Then bring JB, Sterling Brown, Bullock, and Powell as the subs.

    Give Boban some playing time in the 3rd if the team is down at the half.
