Ask me anything about your team!

Recommended Posts

I am considering dropping either ayon or splitter for Kawi Leonard or Jordan Farmar (depending on the length of D-wills absence). I feel farmar is the man at point as long as d-will is gone, and kawhi might add some steals to my team that splitter/ayon wont give me. I am not 100% in the playoffs yet but it looks good.

I'm thinking about trading Tim Duncan because of the possible DNP's he'll be getting sooner or later. This is my first time playing fantasy and offering a trade so I wanna know what players I can get for him.

I need a 2 guard, preferable PG/SG. Henderson and Gee are all I have. Who should I pickup and which one should I drop? I'm sitting outside of the top 6 to make the playoffs right now and in need of 3's! Thanks.

I recently acquired Dwight Howard in my roto league. The owner who wants him has some players that I like including Bryant, Aldridge, Nash, Pekovic and McGee. I need help in steals, 3's and blocks, although I'm not in first in any category so help to me team should affect my standing. The manager I'm considering trading with is 2 spots behind me and we are battling in those 3 categories among others. I feel like he's overvaluing Howard a bit and therefore I feel I could make a trade that would help me win the league.

Will you check my team in the sig and see if you could construct a trade or two that would definitely help me?

BTW, awesome idea and great advice so far!

From those players you listed, I think everyone but Nash is worth trading for. Nash is bound to have some random DNPs down the road and those can end up really hurting you. Looking at your needs, Kobe helps your 3s and steals, while McGee could help you in blocks. Since D12 is pretty good at blocks and steals himself, this trade helps you keep (and gain a little bit) in those two defensive categories while also gaining in 3s. I'm not sure if you'll get both Kobe and McGee, but it's worth your try. LMA and Pek don't really fill your needs.

First of all : I m in a very deep league ( points not roto ) !

Should I drop my G.Green for G.Stiemsma ?

( Green had 1 impressive game but I dun think he can repeat it ,

Stiemsma will get his minutes with Wilcox & O'neal out )

what do u think ?

Are categories in your league worth the same? If so, go with Green. If not, and there's a premium on blocks, go with Stiemsma. Both have roles that fluctuate nightly, and if you can, I'd rather wait and see where Green finds himself in the Nets rotation, and how Doc uses Stiemsma with Wilcox and O'Neal out. (Stiemsma had 3 blocks but played just 13 minutes even though they were up against a big Lakers squad)

The pool has gotten pretty bad lately. It's a pretty deep league with some smart players. I just got offered this trade. My Luis Scola and Marshon Brooks for Harden and Camby. Think I should do it?

You're getting Harden, who is easily the best player of the deal. If I owned Harden, I wouldn't even trade him for BOTH Scola and Brooks. I think you definitely have to take it without any hesitation - if this league is as competitive as you say it is, these opportunities will be few and far between.

Hey, I'm back - what do you think about this potential trade:

Give: Love, Reke, KG

Get: Durant, Kobe, Delfino/Stuckey

Thanks!

I like it for you. You have a lot of depth when it comes to bigs, and KG can't turn back the clock forever. You also get the best player in the deal, and KD/Kobe have fantastic schedules to end the season, which is a huge plus for your elite players. And by the way, if you have the choice of Delfino/Stuckey, definitely go with Stuckey.

I am considering dropping either ayon or splitter for Kawi Leonard or Jordan Farmar (depending on the length of D-wills absence). I feel farmar is the man at point as long as d-will is gone, and kawhi might add some steals to my team that splitter/ayon wont give me. I am not 100% in the playoffs yet but it looks good. H2H 12 team 9 cat.roster in sig. Muchod Gracias! Any other criticisms welcomed!!!

I would definitely drop Splitter for Leonard. Famar's value is very dependent on D-Will's playing time, and as of now, we haven't received any news that should suggest D-Will's injury is anything serious. Besides, I'd keep Ayon for just another week just to see how the Kaman trade rumors pan out. As for the Spurs players involved, Pop's shown to be pretty noncommital to his bigs not named Tim Duncan, as Blair, Splitter, and Bonner all have big games occasionally. Leonard's shown promise, and has put up nice stats in limited minutes recently. Pop loves defensive swingmen like Leonard, and his role can only increase as Manu/RJ get rested.

I'm dropping Iman Shumpert for either Alonzo Gee/Goran Dragic/Chandler Parsons. Which of the three should I Pick-up?

It boils down to Dragic and Gee. You definitely could use some PG stats, and Dragic is going to be a pretty nice play for the next week while Lowry is out. Gee provides some better all-around stats and has more long-term value, and also has a nice playoff schedule for H2H. If you're in a competitive league and don't think Gee will be around for much longer, I'd go with Gee. If you can afford to leave Gee out in the FA pool for the next couple days, pick up Dragic. As for Parsons, he has shown flashes of value but his role is inconsistent, and I don't think he can do anything that Gee can't do.

I'm thinking about trading Tim Duncan because of the possible DNP's he'll be getting sooner or later. This is my first time playing fantasy and offering a trade so I wanna know what players I can get for him.

Yeah, a lot of people value Duncan differently because of his DNP risks. For a 14-team league, see if you can land someone with 4th round value, and slowly move down from there.

Should I add Frye, Trevor Booker, Varejao, or Dalembert for anyone on my team? I need my FGA's to stay up though. Thanks

You don't have anyone I'd drop for those players right now. I would try and do a 2-for-1 involving Jamison though, and then pick one of those 4 up.

I need a 2 guard, preferable PG/SG. Henderson and Gee are all I have. Who should I pickup and which one should I drop? I'm sitting outside of the top 6 to make the playoffs right now and in need of 3's! Thanks.

Well, it would be nice if you could list out your FA pool as I'm not too sure who's available right now. Off the top of my mind, Foye is a nice short-term play as he has 5 games the next week. If Ridnour is somehow still available, pick him up. Bayless is also a nice option, as Calderon is injured and out the next week, and the Raptors will more than likely give Bayless a bigger role moving forward as they play for lottery balls.

Well, I'd highly suggest you reconsider again, as I think Maggette would be the more logical drop for you. But if you're set on dropping the Jet, then you definitely need to beware of some possible losses in that category going forward. You have a pretty clear advantage as it stands, but without Jet's 2 three's a game, you no longer have that gap in the category. You're definitely still going to be competitive though.

No problem! Also keep in mind that all 5 of his games are home (no doubt a result of the condensed season), and Foye has done better at home than on the road.

Sessions is someone you want to add, and I'd probably drop Williams/Roddy B/Hayward for him. I'm not sure what the scoring system is for your league, so you'll have to decide specifically who to drop on your own!

Roto League. 8-cats.

I'm in first. These are the standings. This is my team.

I've just made the following trade which will be processed tomorrow. I gave up Millsap + Noah for Ryan Anderson + Ibaka. As you can see from the standings, I'm behind in 3PM and BLKs. Do you like this trade though? I'm giving up two players who were producing very well in order two get two specialists.

Could you offer me any advice as to how to manage my team from here. I am inexperienced in roto(first time playing), I guess I'm ahead of pace. I wonder, I have a guy like Josh Howard, should I just drop him for let's say Korver who will give me some 3s or add someone who will give me a block or two a night? I've also added Farmar(dropped Sessions for him) the other day to get me some 3s. I'm also holding on to Varejão, not sure if that makes sense. Basically, how to manage games from here? Take a shot with short therm guys that have a window of opportunity or just stick with my consistent players? How "badly" am I ahead of pace?

The trade deadline in this league is the 14th, so I'll be limited to adds/drops very soon. If you have a peak at the FA pool and notice some 'must add' for my team, please do let me know.

I've read through the topic and enjoyed your replies, so that's why I'm writing. I may ask you about one other league where I have some decisions to make, I don't want to make this post even longer though, so I'll leave that for another opportunity. For the time being, I appreciate your effort and take your time replying. Thanks.

Does your league have a games played limit?

Regardless, I think you're undervaluing KevMart. He's certainly frustrating, largely thanks to Kevin McHale, but his value isn't that low. Of the trades you listed though, KevMart and Harrington for Hibbert would be the best one, but Hibbert's excellent schedule might not be an advantage to you if you do indeed have a games played limit.

What do you think of this trade I was planning on proposing:

Give: Tim Duncan

Get: Pekovic

That's not too shabby. I'd recommend you to try and dangle him out there to a couple other teams and see if some owners bite on him solely for his name value, as there's always people that will overvalue players simply due to their name brand. But a Duncan for Pek swap is a nice trade for you.

It's a good move for you. There's a lot of uncertainty revolving around Millsap as the trade deadline approaches, and even if the Jazz don't make any moves, I'd imagine they'd surely give Favors/Kanter some more minutes to close out the season. Noah, on the other hand, won't have his value any higher than it is right now, and he has a pretty bad schedule from here on out. Anderson and Ibaka help fill your needs quite nicely, and neither have any major downsides at all.

Your pace definitely is troublesome though, and you really set your team back by not using that UTL spot enough. You have a whopping 94 uses of that spot left, and I'm pretty sure you're going to end the season without filling that spot up. Meanwhile, all your other positions are pretty ahead of the pace. I think in your situation, it'd actually be beneficial to trade for some players that have a poor schedule ahead of them. Try and target players on teams with poor schedules like Chicago and Philly, and see if you can get a bit more value than the players you already have. An even smarter alternate would be targeting injured players that are going to return before the season's end.

As for your FAs, I can't really see any move that would benefit you right now. It might be smart to drop Farmar to stash someone like Leonard or Favors once DWill returns.

Hey so my Gerald Wallace, Luis Scola, and Marshon Brooks for Harden and Granger 14 team H2H

The trade easily favors your end. Not only are Harden/Granger better, they have better playoff schedules, and you're freeing up a roster space to pick up a FA while doing so. Take it.

Hi ballsohard,

thank you for the reply.

I was wondering, how do I have 94 uses of the UTIL spot left? I took a print-screen, correct me if I'm wrong, isn't it just (-31): http://dl.dropbox.co...162723/pace.jpg ? Maybe I'm being a little slow here. On that matter, since there's 3 UTIL places to fill every night, I can simply just play players there instead of their 'natural' positions and manage games played by position a bit better.

I'm looking for some feedback in this other league, if you don't mind.

So, in this league I've made a various trades(buying extremely low on Wall in the first part of season), I got Marc Gasol, Greg Monroe and Kyrie Irving also all through trades. I added several of the hottest free agents through the season and dealt them away(such as Lin after that Mavs game at the Garden) at their highest to try to improve for the playoffs. That said I had Eric Gordon and Steph Curry(who I traded for when he was hurt back in January). So not all has gone well.

I am stuck with a roster full of PGs at the moment as you can see. I am in first in the league so I can just gamble. There are three weeks left of regular season. When I heard the news of Calderon going down and then Lowry as well I just added Bayless and Dragic to see how that pans out and if they may be out for an extended period(possibly throughout the fantasy playoffs).

The trade deadline in this league has passed, so I am limited to working the waiver wire. It sounds like Calderon's problem isn't a big one. So I'm thinking Bayless is a safe drop.I was stashing Blatche before dropping him for Dragic, it doesn't feel like he will get any run with the Wizards and will be stuck in a reserve role the rest of the year, although his potential is appealing. Since Varejão got dropped this morning, I'm thinking of putting a waiver claim(#2), I should get him. I suppose even if the updates on him haven't been very clear or positive... I guess this is kind of a no brainer with the Cavs nice fantasy playoff schedule. Do you have any suggestions to round out my roster? Anything you think I should focus on?
