Seems like value has gone up for Frye and possibly Plumlee (although not Plumlee for a standard 12 team league). And I would say it solidifies Markieff's wavering value as opposed to actually increasing it.

I'd agree. Markieff doesn't have a high enough ceiling for me to actually bump his value up all that far. I do think this makes Frye rosterable for standard leagues pretty much across the board though (with a late pick), which is a big deal. As far as Gortat goes I might bump him up maybe a round from where I had him ranked, but he's not soaring up my draft board. That said I probably ranked Gortat higher than a lot of guys. When I look at my teams I see I've actually bought stocks in him pretty heavily. :-b

big winner in this is (dare i say it) plumlee...len just isnt ready and his ankles and foul rate can be an issue. No other size to play the center spot on the suns. Plumlee loves to rebound, blocks will be sprinkled in, but he is an offensively limited big man. Think putbacks and garbage man that will run the floor and gobble up rebounds. I'm making the add here in deeper leagues not sure this guy deserves 10 team consideration at all but a click of the watch icon won't hurt. I think gortat is in a better situation from a mental stability standpoint which should translate into happy player=better player.
