    Is Gallinari worth stashing? I’m thinking of dropping Steve Adams or Sloan for him.

    Also, would you trade Draymond Green for Chandler Parsons?

      @Noah’s Arc: ummm, I don’t mind stashing Galo but wouldn’t drop either of those guys yet. Sloan in a few weeks maybe when Hill gets back. Def would take Parsons if you can get him!

    Hey JB, you helped me with a trade acquiring Carmelo yesterday. This is my team in a 10 team, 9 cat, h2h league:
    G’s – paul, oladipo, calderon, collison, afflalo
    F’s – melo, durant, leonard, millsap, ariza, t jones, Carroll
    C’s – Hill, Olynyk
    FA’s are Anteto.., d green, dieng, g green, plumlee, mcrob, hawes, tucker, s williams, temple, wright, e davis,…
    I have 3 eligible C’s including millsap, but it is a 2C league.. so I’ll most likely be looking to add there.. but do you like any of the free agents in my league for my team?
    Thanks for the help!

      @mike: Nice! Looking like you’ll crush once Durant is back.

      My 3 favorites are Giannis, Dieng and Davis on your wire. With Carroll getting a late injury update today and doubtful for Wednesday, I would grab Dieng I think. Any time!

      • mike says:

        you think Afflalo will be better this season? If I were to drop a guy now I feel like it would be him…

        • JB Gilpin

          @mike: Yeah I think so, was much better last time out

    being offered the following trades in a h2h 16 man 11 cat league:
    1. vucevic+jabari for parsons+hill
    2. wall for lowry+collison

    for some reason, im hesitant on both, seeing as how i feel i need depth, especially with a shallow FA pool. here is my team as of now. (possibly punting rebs/blks). is there a trade that will help me more?

    pg/sg: lowry, collison, elfrid, lavine, chalmers
    sg/sf: danny green, morrow, batum
    sf/pf: parsons
    pf/c: dirk, taj, j.hill

      @hamtime: Still like trade 2 the best! I like 1 as well. Don’t see any huge needs, I would take trade 2

  4. hamtime says:
    (link)

    do you prefer elfrid or dieng ROS?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: Def Elfrid unless Pek is out a long time, which is possible at any point

  5. Rob says:

    Was offered Kevin Martin for Collison. Am weak in threes but have only 2 PG. My team:

    Wall, Collison, deRozan, Hayward, Duncan, Randolph, Gortat, Cousins, Terrence Jones, Bradley, Jabari Parker, Foye.

    Am inclined to respectively decline.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Rob: Nah, I would decline or counter as well. Probably just decline unless he needed a big.

    Hi guys, I’m trying to choose between starting #occupydraymond or reggie jackson. im in an 8cat roto league and my team reads as follows: PG- steph curry, SG-James Harden, SF-Rudy Gay, PF-Derrick Favours, C-Joakim Noah, G-Eric Bledsoe, F- Andre Drummond, UT-Wes Matthews, UT-Tim Duncan and the last UT position is between draymond and reggie. who would you recommend i start?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @The big dawg: 8cat I’ll take Jackson, taking out those TO he will own for ya

    Alright so I need some help and I respect your opinion.

    I decided if I got a low pick this year I would attempt to punt ft% and 3pm in a 9 cat h2h league. I need to win 5-4 in any given week to take that week. My Team:

    Drummond
    D. Jordan
    D. Howard
    Rubio(IR Spot)
    Rondo
    Draymond Green
    Bogut
    Dragic
    Ty. Evans
    Noel
    Wiggins
    T.Jones

    It seems like my team is really under performing. I am wondering what you would do with this disaster. Thank you in advance for your help.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Fahed: Rubio getting hurt is a big blow. FT% is definitely punted! I’d try to get MCW for that bad FT shooting to fit your team, and I think you can afford to lose board and blocks, look a little overloaded. Dwight for him?

  8. Steven says:

    In a head-to-head points league (yahoo). Few roster tweak questions!

    1. Is Andrew Wiggins going to be worth anything later in the season? He is terrible right now but am hesitant to drop him just because if he keeps getting minutes he has the talent to be an impact player. At the same time, Kelly Olynyk and DeMare Carrol and P.J. Tucker are unowned in my league, or I might even be able to trade Wiggins straight up for Rubio.

    2. I dropped Alec Burks for Iman Shumpert. Alec hasn’t done anything all year. Is this Shumperts breakout year or is he going to get lost in the crowded NY backcourt once everyone is healthy?

    3. Drafted Nicola Pekovich in the 9th round, but considering dropping him for Olynyk. Who has more long term value?

    For all these questions,I am mainly interested in long-term value, not high-value streamers. I am waiting on MCW, Oladipo, and Durant to get healthy and am building for a big run the second half of the year.

    Thanks!
    Great site! I visit daily!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Steven: 1. Yeah I think so, I think they’ll run more plays for him, but Rubio hurt right now is no help at all. I’d def do the trade for Rubio though. 2. I am going to waffle… Both. I think he breaks out, but cools off a little. 3. I had Olynyk ranked close to Pek already, and since you mention long-term, I’ll take Olynyk scared for Pek’s health. Thanks for visiting man!

    I see DeMarre Carroll was kind enough to wait until he finished his first game after our trade before getting injured. Thanks DeMarre, and don’t worry, I think you’ll fit in with the rest of my team real well, lol.

    I’ve gotta say that while I’ve seen some individual game lines from AD, I’ve avoided looking at his actual season averages since I don’t own him anywhere. I just don’t wanna know what I missed because I drafted Durant 1st overall before he got injured. I sort of imagine AD’s per game numbers are right on par with my entire RCL team combined.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @A Hill O’ Beans: Hah, yeah ridiculously unlucky. Didn’t even know he had an injury pretty sure he closed out the game… I had Durant 1st too, I mean if you took anyone besides Durant pre-injury it woulda looked crazy. But yea, he could take on a lot of teams single-handedly. Might win FG%/FT%/BLK/TO and go 4-5 every week

      • A Hill O' Beans says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Wow, Middleton injured now too. That puts the final nail on that trade, lol. And it only took like 1 day too. I’m cursed this season.

    I think Yahoo position eligibility was talked about here a little while ago but, this is just random. Andre Roberson just picked up SG eligibility today. Which is odd since he hasn’t played a game in what, over a week? Talk about no rule for who gets eligibility and who doesn’t.

    • JB Gilpin

      @A Hill O’ Beans: I don’t disagree, somewhere in the Yahoo notes it says they go off an assessment of some hooblah and add as they go… I don’t like it either

    Wall + bosh + it for Irving +love + collison
    10 catg with dd 10 teams

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Jr: I’ll lean Wall side, Bosh and Love are close if not identical ROS for me now, rather Wall over Irving.

    10 team h2h points league

    PG. D rose, a burks, j Calderone
    SG harden, Stevenson, Courtney Lee
    Sf Durante, Jabari Parker, Solomon hill
    Pf. D favors, z Randolph, c frye
    C Drummond, bogut, n Noel

    Still holding the fort down despite being banged up. Worth dropping anyone like Jabari, hill, or bogut for a shot on Giannis Hakunamatata until Durant is good to go?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Sange76: Yup, I would drop Hill for Hakunamatata haha. It’s such a wonderful phrase!

  13. LB says:

    Hey guys, great site.
    Isaiah Thomas for Draymond straight up?

    10 team, 9 cat. Got Durant in my IR spot, sort of punting points until I get him back on the court.

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @LB: Thanks man! If you’re punting points, yeah I’ll take Green

  14. Jerms says:
    (link)

    Who should I bench? Shawne Williams, Eric Gordon, or Andrew Wiggins? I want to say Eric Gordon, but he’s playing my Lakers tomorrow so he might actually go off haha

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jerms: Hahaha on Gordon, for me its Williams, I know he had a tiny bit of foul trouble last game, but Deng emerging and McRoberts healthier I think he’s losing most of his value

  15. kb24 says:

    Should I go with Lavine over Mo Williams?
    Also available: Devin Harris, DJ Augustin, Aaron Brooks, Dennis Schroder, and Isaiah Canaan

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @kb24: Well for short term, I like Canaan tonight over everyone, then move to Harris Thursday if Jameer is out. If you can’t make lots of moves, ya know I think I’ll still go Harris – playing decent and Jameer already with an injury

  16. LOLER says:

    Should I look to trade Brandon Knight and Draymond Green? Also, I’m thinking about upgrading Rudy Gay, who should I be looking to trade him for while he’s this hot?

    9-cat, 10-team, 16-man, roto league. Thanks JB!

    This is my lineup:

    PG – John Wall, Kemba Walker, Jose Calderon
    SG – James Harden, Brandon Knight, Donald Sloan, Jeremy Lamb
    SF – Rudy Gay, Courtney Lee, Danilo Gallinari, Mirza Teletovic
    PF – Derrick Favors, Draymond Green, Josh McRoberts
    C – DeMarcus Cousins, Andrew Bogut

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @LOLER: I like Knight a ton, I wouldn’t sell unless ridiculously hugh. Green maybe, Gay I think could command the most and is the best sell high for me. Gay for Tobias Harris+a throw in PG? Might work!

      • Loler says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Or should I package him with someone and try to get someone with steals and blocks, say like, Millsap? Harris + 1 seems a bit low for Rudy right now… Hmmm…

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Loler: Well by throw in PG, I’m thinking like Teague no a scrub like Nate Wolters haha. Umm, yeah Millsap is a great buy low, we’re gonna talk on the pod tomo, but Hawks only 2 games next week. Might wait to buy low then as owners get frustrated

          • Loler says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: I see. How about Tobias + Collison? Would that work? I’m thinking about offering Gay + Sloan for Tobias + Colly. Then shipping Colly to probably get Korver? Hmmm…

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @Loler: Harris had one of his worst last time out, Gay for Tobias+Colly only I might do though, dunno if I’d wanna give up Sloan as a throw in for another 3ish weeks of good production
