It's a 12-team, 8-cat Roto Dynasty (12-keeper) with 12 slots and an 82 GP limit on each slot. However, because talent has shifted over the last few years, it's better if you consider this a 10-team league, as the best teams are decidedly stronger. Somehow, I successfully won the league last year while punting FT%. But with all the moves in the offseason, I'm left feeling less than great. My questions are 1) How much worse do I look this year than last year because of the NBA offseason? 2) Do I simply need to make a few moves to sure up an otherwise competitive team? Or do i need to reconstruct all of it? It's an ESPN league -- which should answer some questions about dual eligibility.


PG: Kyrie Irving
PG: Goran Dragic
SG: George Hill
SG: Mo Williams
SF: Jimmy Butler
SF: Kyle Korver
PF: Josh Smith
PF: Al Horford
C: DeMarcus Cousins
C: Dwight Howard
Util: Jeremy Lin
Util: Kevin Martin

Bench (Non-Keepers): Tiago Splitter, Jared Dudley, Jared Sullinger


Off-season Changes: Most distressing is Josh Smith's move to detroit. Of course, it's all speculation. But when he played the 3 in atlanta, his RPG plummeted and his FG% and bpg took a substantial hit as well. Mo Williams -- he doesn't have a job. Of course I'm going to wait and see, but I don't see him getting a starting job. losing 10 mpg will render him next to useless. Goran Dragic -- It's hard to know what his game is going to be with Bledsoe in town. A real shakeup (such as his being taken completely off-ball or playing the roll of sixth man) is a very small chance. But, even absent that risk, I think we can expect to see his assist and point numbers go down. Jeremy Lin -- Beverly was moving in at the end of last year. He's a weak shooter which might portent his getting less playing time with dwight.

I think overall you are ok. J Smiths numbers may drop a little, but he still has significant value in a 12 team league. I wouldn't keep Mo Williams, he is going to have little to no value next season and is old anyway. Splitter is probably your best replacement. Also, I think K Martin's production will go up next year in Minnesota, so he will be a plus in your SG slot.

I hadn't even considered it because of how good mo was for me last year. But it makes perfect sense. I'll check to make sure he doesn't get a starting gig anywhere before I keep splitter.

I'm hoping Kmart does well next year -- but mostly so that I can trade him. A lot of his value is lost because I'm punting ft%.

I'm not completely sure what you're asking. Are you asking how to do it successfully? Conceptually, it's the same as punting in H2H. Logistically, it's just more difficult because a 1 pt. category is, theoretically, more damaging in roto than losing a category every week in H2H.
