Playoffs for a lot of teams are starting next weekend. Are you in or are you out?

I am in :D. I currently hold the 2nd spot in my 14 team league but will not be able to take the #1 spot.

After my Rondo went down, I thought my fantasy team was doomed. Rondo went down, Dwight went down, Thad young went down, and Sanders went down all in about a week or so.


My fantasy team is holding enough ground right now. Everyone is healthy but Jarrett Jack is definitely slumping and I need him more than ever. I hope Sanders stays healthy and I need Kawhi to dominate the next couple of weeks.

75% of my teams are in. I'm prepping for a tough matchup next week in my money league. Lost Kyrie and Gortat recently in that one. Not to mention the plethora of inj I already have. I'm looking at the schedule and ease rankings and hoping my opponent doesn't stream like I'm planning on doing. Got 7 adds per-week.

Proud to say I made playoffs in all 5 of my leagues. #1 seed in two leagues with a bye week. I've been fortunate this year with injuries, hopeful I can avoid any major ones in the playoffs.

Damn 5 is alot. I used to do more than 2 leagues a year but finally cut down 2 years ago to only 1 league per sport.
The more i was in the more I lost.

Won my 18 team league last year in basketball.
Won my 12 league football league this year.
And hopefully I can win this year and make it back to back for basketball.

True. You can only handle so many teams efficiently. I managed 9 fbball teams last year and it was just impossible to be on top of everything.

I'm 4th in my league and with all the trading I have been doing I'm in quite a good spot. Already started playoffs and almost done my first week. Dominating so far. My team says it all doesn't it?

I thought the same thing in football. I beat the guy by 30 the last week of the regular season. He was 7th, I was 2nd. He beat me in the first round.

Anyhow, I am 1st in my money league. I Picked up Pau Gasol as I think I can pull of the victory next week against an 8th seed who has  Melo a few average players and scrubs.

I also made the playoffs in my other 3 leagues.

had so many injuries hitting my team the last 3 weeks of the season that now i went from having a bye heading into the playoffs to just hoping my team can beat the lower seed in the first round. I doubt both my teams are good enough to win the championship this year...

Help! what should I do?!!

After a loss last week that snapped a 16 week winning streak, my team is crumbling at a critical time through injuries, real world trades, and performance slumps.

I'm 14 games ahead of 2nd position in 12 team H2H league over 9 Cats. I usually dominate 3's, points, boards, & assists and take what I can get of the others. FG% and turnovers kills me. Lately with losing Irving, inconsistency at critical times and Jarrett Jack/Kyle Korver's number not awesome, I lost 3-6 to a poor team last week (thank you Derron W and your 11 3's in a game) and I am down this week as well. I am not used to being challenged, certainly not by teams that wont even make the playoffs.

Current team is:

Irving
G Hill
Felton
J Jack
Pierce
Parsons
K Thompson
Korver
J Green
Nowitzki
T Thompson
Noah
J Thompson

I want to bolster FG% and minimise turnovers, and need to replace Irvings assists. Available players in my league include Andre Miller, Tobias Harris and Martel Webster. I was thinking of dropping Green, Korver and Jack, but I am wary of Jack having & Korver having a resurgence. The biggest question is what to do about Irving? Do I gamble and hold on in case he comes back just in time to help me just when I might need it, do I wait another week and see what news is of his injury while I have the playoff bye but risk losing the best replacement options to others, or do I dump him now and grab the best options available?

Any suggestions highly appreciated!!

Number 1 seed. I lost Rondo and Kyrie, but have managed to stash Pau and Rose as replacements. Would be so awesome if they return in time to help me during the april matchups, because that's the only time I foresee needing them.

My team will play 41 games next week (10 starters, everyone plays four games with Lillard having 5). Don't think there is a snowball's chance in hell my opponent can compete.
