I'm in a 20 team league with 16 man rosters.....Juancho - Morris - Bembry......Dynasty no money league but all active teams.

 

I don't see how anyone can play in a Dynasty League for money. Wouldn't the bad teams not come back in Year 2 if they have to pay the same as the good teams? That would just be throwing money away unless you were building a team with younger upside guys.

I’m in a number of large buy-in dynasty/keeper leagues.  Presumably this could happen but everyone has a different strategy.  Some intentionally draft youth and give their team a 3-4 year timeline.  Others draft for the present.  The rookie/supplemental draft each year is usually based on reverse order from the standings the year previous so if you are in last you get Ayton or Doncic eg. You’re required to pay a year in advance if you want to trade so people don’t intentionally sell out the future for the present.  Some people do “hit and run” but generally that doesn’t happen.

Was Warren really on waivers in this many leagues? Are these all 8 and 10 team leagues?

12-team here. Warren's ADP right now is 135.1 His Xrank before the season was beyond 150 iirc.

 

Analysts were thinking he's coming off the bench behind Ariza and JJ. Him being starting PF came out of nowhere for most.

How big were your rosters that he wasn’t drafted at the end of your draft if his adp was 135? He’s been an established top 100 guy or better for a few years now. And I have to admit I have no idea what Xrank is lol

Standard league, 12-team, 13-man.

 

His ADP right now is 135.1, i dont know his ADP before the season. Xrank is how the experts rank the players, used by yahoo as default order during the draft.

 

Im guessing you're using ESPN. ESPN users are almost always clueless.

Guess I have a hard time awarding waiver wire of a year to a guy that scored nearly 20 ppg last season and can’t really see how he isn’t drafted in competitive 12 team leagues.

I wonder how an entire roster of potential WW pick-ups would do

 

Montrezl Harrell / Domantas Sabonis / Tristan Thompson

Pascal Siakam / Jaren Jackson Jr.

TJ Warren / Danny Green / Rudy Gay

Justin Holiday / Jeremy Lamb

Derrick Rose / Spencer DinWiddie / Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

 

is that enough to win the championship?

Beast in a punt assist team. Only weakness would be 3pts.

Not too bad in 3PM. Rose, Dinwiddie, Holiday, Lamb, Warren, and Green are all good 3pt shooters.

Honestly, not really a great team lol. In a 12-team roto league that'd probably be in the bottom 3rd. This team doesn't really excel at anything, and although the players individually are quite good, there aren't any truly elite top 20 (ROS) players here.

Average, middle of the pack squad at best.

Assuming no health/injury issues, who are we expecting to regress? Gay has already declined a bit. Maybe Dinwiddie and Rose regresses. At the same time, Shai, Warren, Lamb and JJJ's averages might get better since they were dragged down by rocky stretches/lack of PT/slow starts near the beginning of the season.

 

If you take their averages and assume they all played 20 games, you get:

51.29 FG%, 77.22 FG%, 322 3PTM, 3686 PTS, 1474 REB, 636 AST, 250 STL, 200 BLK, 402 TO

 

how does that compare to your roto teams? It would probably be top 3 in my standard roto league..currently beats my team in TO, STL, BLK, REB, FG%
