14 team 9 cat h2h ($)

Lillard, KCP, Payton, Joe Harris, Ellington, Caboclo, Looney, Siakam, Kanter, Harkless, BroLo, Jakar, Kaminsky

(Looks like a horrible final roster but lost a lot of key pieces along the way)

1st pick - Oladipo 

trades that saved my season:

- Jimmy Butler and Dunn for Lillard (December pre Tobias and Dunn was playing well)

- Middleton and Ariza for Siakam and Ibaka

- Ibaka for OPJ (before he was traded to CHI)

 

Trade I lost:

Cousins and Smart for Covington

(Around the time Cousins returned, Covington never came back)

Whirlwind of a season but it’s the end result that matters :) 

My playoff MVP(s): Lillard, Horford, Kanter and KCP

12T H2H 12 cat (FTM, PF, TEC)

 

Went 21-1 in the season mostly with:

Fox, Dragic, Payton

Beal, Klay, Lamb, Brogdon/Hardaway Jr

LeBron, Doncic

Markkanen, Favors/JJJ

Embiid, Adams

 

Won the finals with:

Fox, Payton/Favors

Beal, Klay, KCP, Ellington

Doncic, Harkless, Gay

Embiid, Adams, Kanter, Mitchell Robinson

 

Cruised through most of the season but of course guys dropped like flies by the time the semis came about. Barely won by 1 three to a guy that beat me in the finals 2 years in a row, then won in the finals off a tie despite winning the 5 major stat cats and losing the ones like fouls and techs.

Although I won my first chip ever I’m not too happy with the settings and the fact that with those extra cats a big win or loss isn’t really reflected in the scores. I don’t mind taking a big L if I deserve it but to almost lose even though I won every major popcorn stat emphatically is not fun.

I just want to say a special thanks to Bruno Caboclo, Delon Wright, Shaquille Harrison, and last but not least, Alex Caruso. 

Amidst the rampant and ridiculous load management/injuries (Joel Embiid, John Collins, Otto Porter, Deandre Ayton, and to a lesser extent KAT to name a few for me), you 4 stepped in and helped solidify my H2H championship this year (Roto I already had locked up). 

Thanks again. We did it!

H2H 8 Cat Dynasty

 

Absolutely rolled through the regular season with a win percentage of .741, but it wasn't without its bumps. 

End of Season Roster

Lonzo, Jrue, Collison

Hield, Beal, Ingles

Isaac, Tobias, Gallo

Horford

KAT, Nurk, Robinson

(1 stream spot)

I dealt with a lot of injuries. Traded Dipo for Lavine + Gallo, then flipped Lavine for Hield + Horford. Traded Carter Jr. for a 1st round pick then activated Robinson (owned the rights to him, league settings require a rookie on active roster). Also traded Jarrett Allen for Collison (not ideal for dynasty but my PG situation was getting dire)

 

Then things got wonky in the finals. Nurk got injured as we all know, so that hurt more, however I was still projected to beat my opponent 6-2 even with 3 injured players. However, the commissioner never issued a trade deadline (dynasty) which enabled active playoff teams to trade (which was so ridiculous a forum couldn't hold my rant). My opponent took full advantage and went nuts on the trading to maximize games. He traded AD for Jokic, Paul for DJ + Adams, Kyrie for Westbrook, and about 3 more minor trades. I was forced to trade Jrue for Kuzma + pick (terrible but not many options), and Nurk for Millsap. I then had to trade Kuz for WCS to compete in boards and FG.

 

In the end even with an older and worse roster I still won 5-3 for my 4th title in 7 years. 

 

Special thanks to Mitch Robinson and Gallo for going HAM on the boards and for Nurk for being awesome all year (get well soon).

12 Team deep bench, start 2 C's, H2H 8 cat. Auction. I made the playoffs with this team;

 

G: Booker, Sato, Middleton, Redick

F: Love, Lamb, Collins, Powell

C : Gobert, Capela, MitchRob

Stream 3 spots

 

Admittedly not my best draft. I ended up punting Ast due to injuries, punting Stl soon followed for the same reason. 2nd time I've won this league in 5 years, felt great. In the conversation for the best waiver work I've ever done in any league, ever. Won the champ. 6-2 but only won Ast by 2, Stl by 2 and Blk by 2. This could easily have ended up in the Cool Story Bro thread if I had less luck.

Above all other things, nothing beats taking your friend's money fair and square XD

Finished as co-champ with my old friend CoH

This was probably my proudest moment in fbb as this league (9-cat roto, 12) is made up entirely of veteran members of this RW forum (half of us who are now real-life friends because of this place).

 

We went old-school with a live draft in Las Vegas complete with a physical draft board and copious amounts of booze

COH's team is 4th from the left with Giannis and mine is 2nd from the right (Embiid in 1st round is cut off). Key pickup was Siakim who was dropped in Week 2. Even better was that I was so hungover from the night before that I would have slept through the draft if the other guys hadn't of called for a welfare check. Thank you Las Vegas PD for waking me up!

It's the fantasy off-season which means I'm back on the forum!

Had a decent fantasy season. Won 3,  finished just outside the money in 2 others and drifted towards the bottom in some free leagues as i tend to lose focus when there's no money involved. But overall i ended up doubling my entry fees so I can't complain. 

Looking forward to next season! 😂

G - S. Curry, D. Fox, J. Lamb, J. Richardson

F - A. Davis, T. Harris, L. Nance, A. Gordon, M. Bridges

C - A. Drummond, M. Harrell

That was my core, and I had some fliers such as Harkless, Beverley, and T.Ross.

Nance, Gordon, Fox were all acquired in midseason trades.

It's a dynasty league, and I mortgaged 3 years future 1st round picks for Steph. Dealing with the AD drama was tough but it was all worth it!
