Had a few guys I liked better than JJ but he fills a position (SF) and a need (3's) and I wasn't able to pass him up. Wanted one of the 3pt SF studs (Korver or Green) with the pick but since they were off the board, I'll have to roll the dice that his minutes aren't too affected by the major shake up in Brooklyn. Considering the roster depth and JJ's age as well as his recent decline in production, there is nothing sexy about the pick for sure.

In the few drafts/mocks I've seen, I think Lin is being drafted at an appropriate spot this year. PG's went early in this draft and there's no one truly elite left and I am happy to get some assists on the team. Howard's presence in Houston might pump up Lin's stats a bit, too, though I hope his FG% doesn't dip if he's given more opportunity to shoot. The 'Linsanity' from a few seasons ago is gone but he's still quite usable in fantasy.

If you hadn't taken him and Sal let him slip by as well, I would have had to draft him. I think people were too hard on the kid. He was a serviceable fantasy player. Plus, like all the points you mentioned above, I expect you got a steal here.
