I know we kind of have a thread similar to this, but I wanted to start one, like the football one, that is exclusively for talking fantasy basketball.

Anyone drafted yet? Anyone have any sleepers or busts? How many teams are you guys going to have?

I had a draft this past Monday. It's only an 8 team league.

We're not doing any %'s, like FG or FT. Just straight up points, assists, rebounds, steal, blocks, and turnovers.

I think I did pretty well. I grabbed a couple players that are way more valuable in this kind of scoring than one that tracks %'s, not the least of which is Iverson.

I need Boozer to stay healthy, which is dicey, but I also wouldn't have any problem plugging Bogut in as a starting center, I see him having a good year.

The only category I'm genuinely concerned about is assists.

Lemme know what you think.

Iverson
Ray Allen
Jason Richardson
Gerald Wallace
Odom
Peja
Bosh - Center eligible, playing Center
Boozer - Center eligible, playing Center

Bench/Utility:
Zach Randolph
Jameer Nelson
Bogut - Center eligible
Devin Harris
Brandon Roy
Danny Granger

That's a very good team thiggy, even if it's 8 teams. You need Boozer and Wallace to stay healthy though, and I donno if they will.

If Shawn was there and you passed on him thats a bad decision fantasy wise though im not sure i would have passed on Dirk either. Marion has been THE best fantasy player the last 2 years.

Yeah he was still there, and I realize that. I just couldn't pass up Dirk. I wanted him in at least one of my leagues, and since I think that was my only reach pick in the draft I think I'll be alright.

How does the rest of my team look?

I don't really bother with rankings. I just get to the draft early, que up my sleepers and breakout players that I have in mind and pretty much just improvise. I go by the Yahoo list, but it's not like I take the top ranked guy each pick.

My second year of fantasy bball I have two teams (might enter a third league) whatcha think?

1st Lineup: Baron Davis PG, Dwayne Wade SG, Michael Redd G, Josh Howard SF, Antawn Jamison F, Elton Brand PF, Chris Bosh FC, Jermaine Oneal C, Tayshaun Prince UTL...

Bench: T.J Ford, Brandon Roy, K-mart, Nene, and Tyson Chandler

2nd Lineup: Kirk Hinrich, Larry Hughes, Josh Howard, Tracy Mcgrady, Elton Brand, Dwight Howard, Adam Morrison, Yao Ming, Antawn Jamison

Bench: Brandon Roy, Randy Foye, Luke Ridnour, Marvin Williams, Jammal Magloire


I know they look pretty similar, I still think I will dominate with my first team though since Redd was a major steal for me. I dont know whether to start Morrison or Williams though at the forward.

This is my second year as well. Last year I had 6 leagues, and this year I have 3.

As for your teams, I really really like your first team starting lineup, but your bench has some big question marks (K-Mart, Nene) I'd get rid of them ASAP via trade.

Your second team is ok. Your starting lineup is slightly weak, but your bench is strong, so your depth is definetly a plus and will definetly help you place high in your league.

Overall, two very good team, good luck this year.

What i've come to learn over the past few years of fantasy league, is it all comes down to how you manage the 2nd half of the players you draft, and your ability to make a good trade. Don't gamble on more than one player.

I have a system, it could blow up in my face or work to perfection, we'll see. For those of you in U2's league, watch out for Thor.

Tokey41
10-15-2006, 11:03 PM
I'd probably take Gay over Harris with the Gasol situation... then again depends on what you want out of them I guess. I think Gay will produce better numbers overall though.

Yeah, I'm just trying to decide who'd have better numbers overall because it's for my last bench spot. Marquis could enter the equation as well, he and Harris are my last two bench guys, should I replace either with Rudy Gay?

You are fine, Marion is a stud. Plus the cats he helps in (blocks, boards, less TOs) are harder to come by then pts and assists which lebron beats him in.

Oh man I forget about Marquis, i'm sure he'd be a great bench player this year. I think a lot of people are just scared that Amare and Nash will steal some of Marions thunder this year... but it didnt the first year they were all together. So if he puts up similar numbers again this year he will be my unquestioned #2 behind Bron next year. Maybe 3, we'll see how amazing Dirks numbers are this year (10.0 REB, 1.5 BLK, 1.0 STL, 5.0 AST too much to ask?)

5 ast are too much, but I think 10 boards 1.5 blks and 1 stl is hard but still possible.

I've got Quisy on one of my teams as a bench player, I think he'll have a good year as the 6th man.

I think Marion will be solid this year, but I think Bron will be better.

I would try to deal one of your centers for a top tier sg or sf. Something like Kaman and Redd for Pierce if you could get that or something of that ilk. Someone in that league should be desperate for a C. Find them and use it to your advantage. You have an awesome team but if you have someone with C eligibility starting somewhere other than Center, you can generally get a better player to play there by dealing the center for another player at that position. Great team though.

That trade you made was an absolute raping.

I was thinking that the trade was sort of close, but I needed a center and felt Cassell was much better than Turkoglu, so I took Okur and Cassell.

Yeah, that's probably what I'll do. I was pretty lucky to end up with 4 top 10 centers! I really like my team, especially considering that I wasn't even there at the draft. You are right about the fact that if you have someone center eligible playing at another position you are able to get more value from another player. I'll try to deal one of them, thanks for the input.

I really think Roy is going to be their #2 guy. That's my guess.

I realize preseason box scores aren't always good indicators of what will happen in the regular season, but Roy has had a pretty nice preseason.

Also, with Bonzie, if McGrady goes down, you could have a real steal on your hands.

Why am I telling you this? Is this for our league? lol
