Never %FT killers in my Fantasy teams.

It takes some skill and some astute player evaluation, but you can be successful with a punt FT build in an H2H league. It's pretty fun once you get a feel for it, lots of players that other owners won't want become very valuable to you.

10 team H2H (PTS, 3s, FG%, FT%, OREB, DREB, AST, STL, BLK), PG-G-G-F-F-C-UTILx3

The only issue I found last season was that punt FT% has become the "favorite" punt team build, and every league seems to always have at least 2 people trying to build a punt FT%  team, so you may find yourself competing for those players earlier than you'd hoped.
Fantasy basketball junkie!

Perhaps I choose Drummond in a low round draft pick. But never in top 30. And just to trade Drummond and my last round for 2 players

Drummond usually gets picked in 2nd round.

Let's say you're trying to focus on REBs FG% and BLks,

Would you get him round 2?

Also he doesn't have to ruin your ft% I mean, if he's your only "bad" ft% guy, he doesn't take that many attempts really...

Unless of course people start hacking him. But that won't happen until Detroit starts actually winning games.

I loved Drummond last season. I punt FT% in roto though generally due to my keeper makeup. Of course, I have better keepers this season though.

PG: Mike Conley, Eric Bledsoe

SG:
SF: Lebron James
PF/C: Serge Ibaka, Andre Drummond

I managed to be pretty good in FT% even with him.  He's only taken 4 per game.  It's not that bad.  Compared to a guy like Howard who takes 9 to 10 a game on average, his impact isn't that high.  Drafting guards who hit a high pct of free throws will even him out.  While also allowing for a very strange looking team that is.  I'm not sure if I recommend it.  It's hard to balance it out.

I drafted him with Durant in one of my keeper leagues. Still trying to surround him with better FT shooters though (got Hayward and Rubio helping out with that so far). Hoping to land Derozan next.
Toooooooo many teams.

I think in H2H format this guy is gold. And I think we're gonna see a monster this season on thr boards. The guy has crazy potential. What do you guys see his numbers at this season?

If you are punting FT% and AST, how early would you take Drummond? Basketballmonster says he's a 1st round talent in that scenario, so would 2nd round be good? He's been going 2nd round in every mock I've been in.

2nd round is fair and if you can snatch him in the 3rd it be a steal. I won my league last year when he was my only ft killer thanks to him winning me fg, blks, boards almost every week. The problem this year is it's hard getting 2 of Drummond/DJ/Dwight as they all get picked around the same round.

If you're picking at the turn at the end of the first (10/11 or 12/13), you would have to take Drummond cuz he ain't making it back...

i think he would make a nice pairing with DMC, or Griffin at 11/12...some may say Ibaka too...

I think 2nd round is too early. Been seen him getting picked in 2nd in mock drafts.
