  3. Terrible Trade Offers 2016-2017

    Haven't had any in my league, but my buddy texted me today about one in his Embiid/B. Simmons/Kemba for Steph/RoLo/Frank Ntilikina Got vetoed out by his league
  4. Vent & Rant Thread 2017-2018

    It'll settle back to being closer by year's end. Jokic was awful to start last season too, but finished strong. But, yes, Boogie is a monster
  5. Vent & Rant Thread 2017-2018

    Buddy told me a guy in his league accepted a trade for Hayward 15 minutes before tipoff. That's gotta be as awful as make believe basketball can get.
  6. Jerian Grant 2017-2018 Outlook

    You hopefully have either moved him to someone in your league for something good OR you drop him for the new, hot WW add. All about expectations. Expect him to be nothing more than a hot property to start the year until the young, heir apparent comes back and you won't be disappointed.
  7. No Fanduel/Draftkings BBM promo this year?

    Josh Lloyd mentioned this on Fantasy Basketball Reddit: neither company offered BBM to do the promotion again this year. Maybe next year?
  8. The Best Advice You Could Give

    Was Towns owner last year. Can confirm. I was so achingly close to breaking my own rule (see my post above) and had my finger over the CONFIRM button on a number of KAT trades that would have ended poorly for me.
  9. The Best Advice You Could Give

    Subscribe to the sunken cost fallacy. What round you draft someone in becomes meaningless the second your draft is over. Do not be afraid to cut bait/trade someone because, "Well they were my 4th round pick". Well, sucks for you, but that 4th round pick is currently returning 13th round value...NEXT. One caveat to this rule: For the first few weeks, never bet on lotto tickets on the wire unless time opens up due to injury. It's early, it will usually regress (either way) to the mean in a few weeks. Just because CJ Miles starts off hot, doesn't mean you should drop a valuable piece that you just drafted to chase the lightning. I usually won't make my first roster move (barring injury) for at least two to three weeks. Its too small a sample size to know what you need to be focusing on (in Cat leagues, I don't play roto) before then. Until you get to around Thanksgiving, there's no hole too deep to dig out of in the standings. Keep patient, analyze your team so you know which is the best path forward. Once you start managing from your heels, it's almost impossible to tighten the reigns again.
