    Hi, would like to hear your opinion on something. Bazley, Beasley, Baynes, Haliburton, Trent, Dort, Avdija, Milton, Boucher, Pokusevski, DBrooks. Which 4 of them u will take to have best overall season and most value? 10T 9cat H2H league.

    • Son

      Bazley, Beasley, Baynes, Dort

      • fantasy-sleeper says:
        (link)

        I agree with on 3/4. But Dort over Haliburton or Trent? Need some arguments from you 😀

        • Son

          Son says:

          comes down to playing time for me. i think dort gets the most run

    Hi Son,

    I’d like your opinion on my draft direction strategy: drafting n°2 in a 14T H2H.

    normally, top2, I have Harden or more probably Davis for me. If I get Davis, At picks n°27 and 30, who would you go for to build your “core” squad? I see some bigs easily coming…. but lack of points & assists with these slots or good value overall.
    if I wait picks 55 and 58 to get PG, I will be dead to get good PG.

    I’m curious to get your opinion.
    thanks !!! 😉

    • Son

      Son says:

      I’ve gone both directions with an AD build. I’ve gone the big, punt assist way, while going more balanced in another. It just really depends on the draft and what you want to do. There are many paths to victory

      • fred says:
        (link)

        who would you see Son, with the “best value & upside” vs Yahoo Rankings?

        I see sometimes falling: Mitchell & Gilgeous Alexander, or the more classic: Nurkic, Lavine, VanVleet, Vucevic, Paul, Murray, Fox.

        would Woods be too much of a reach at 30? or would you consider him too?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Siakam and white look like values

          I took Wood in the 3rd. Maybe it was a reach but he got my squad and he wasn’t making it back to me, so it doesn’t matter

          • fred says:
            (link)

            thanks Son! who do you mean with “White”?

            would you see more Wood or Nurk at 30? it seems that Nurk has still Gyles & Kanter pushing for his playing time. Wood seems safer in terms of PT, but we have not seen him for a full season?

            I’m seeign if I can get Mitchell or SGA at 27, then Nurk, Vanvleet & Wood would be more my back-up targets or Siakam for slot 30.

            thanks for your inisght sir !

            • Son

              Son says:
              (link)

              Derrick White. Nurk is the guy in Portland.

              Sounds good

    Hi Son,

    May I ask for who’d you prefer between these players?

    1. Smart or dejounte
    2. Horfort or thomas
    3. Cousins or noel
    4. Washington or Bazley

    Thanks!!

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      It really depends on your team and how each player fits

  5. I Just Wanna Kawhi says:

    Son, my man. I just dropped Noel for Bazley. As one of OKC’s tank commanders, I just thought that he should really be on my team and ride the tank with him.

      I don’t wanna kawhi no mo

    Hi son,

    Just finished my draft today.. May I ask how you think I did woth my squad? This is on a 14 team, 9 cat H2H league..

    G: Dame, FVV, Smart, Killian, Melton
    F: Hayward, Dipo, bazley, okoro
    C: Nurkic, kristap, cousins, mason plumlee

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Weakest cat is fg%. Weak in points, boards, and tres. Strengths are dimes, steals, and blocks

      • Dame Time says:
        (link)

        Ohh. Thanks son. Damn this, i really thought i did well. Didnt know i have too many weaknesses.

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          Anytime. It’s all relative so I wouldn’t worry too much.

  7. BookerT says:

    Hi Son,

    Just finished our draft for 14 teamer. May I ask for your opinion here?

    G: Booker, CP3, Killian, Rose, Campazzo
    F: Lebron, Hayward, Otto,Norman Powell, Okoro
    C: Aldridge, Porzingis, Cousins

    Had a hard time getting bigmen as almost all are snipe way too early so I chose to go with this lineup. What do you think?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Strengths are points, dimes, and ft%. Very weak in boards, blocks, and fg%. Average everywhere else

      • BookerT says:
        (link)

        Thanks Son, thought of that as well and thinking of possible trades now.

        Someone offered me either Capela+Ball or Capela+Ingram for Lebron. Is this a good trade for me to cover my weaknesses?? What should I take between these 2 offers.

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          I’d shop around some more

  8. Rob says:
    (link)

    Hey Son,

    What do you make of my draft? I’m weak in points (i’m ok semi-punting that category) and kinda weak in 3s, but i think pretty strong in every other category.

    1. (3) Anthony Davis PF,C
    2. (22) Jimmy Butler SF,PF
    3. (27) Jusuf Nurkic C
    4. (46) Chris Paul PG
    5. (51) Lonzo Ball PG,SG
    6. (70) Jaren Jackson Jr. PF,C
    7. (75) Derrick White PG,SG
    8. (94) Brandon Clarke SF,PF
    9. (99) Devonte’ Graham PG,SG
    10. (118) Jarrett Allen C
    11. (123) Otto Porter Jr. SF,PF
    12. (142) Joe Ingles SG,SF
    13. (147) Maxi Kleber PF,C

    Who should I target as a FA pickup? I have a free roster spot thanks to IR.
    Looking for someone who gets points, 3s, rebounds but doesn’t kill my FT%. Notable FAs:

    Jae Crowder, PBev, Poku (intriguing upside? and fills stats I need)
    Melton, Kevin Porter Jr, JJ redick, Isaac Okoro, Juancho, Dillon Brooks

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      Strong in dimes, steals, blocks, and ft%. Average in points, boards, and fg%. Weakest cat is tres.

      Juancho probably the best for boards/tres combo

  9. Luguentz says:

    Yo Son! Big thanks for the previous discussion, did finally get Bazley. Just popping in to hear your take on this team (18-team points H2H) – what’s it look like? A bit annoyed at potentially not having a streamer plus guys like Quickley being on the wire, but feel decent otherwise:

    Trae Vanvleet Smart Milton Coby Burks
    Wiggins Bazley PJWash
    Ayton WCJ Portis

  10. Son

    Son says:
    (link)

    Super weak in fg%. Weak in boards and blocks. Strenghts are dimes, tres, and ft%.

    My man, I just wanna ask—how high (or low) are we on Oladipo? And how do you think he will fare this season with a new coach and being fully recovered after suffering a season ending injury almost 2 years ago. I’m not expecting him to get back to Allstar form he once was a few years ago but what is a realistic expectation from him?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I think I’m higher than most on him. Agree that bounce back could be in the works. With that said, my optimism has been tempered slightly from the preseason

      • I Just Wanna Kawhi says:
        (link)

        Hah! Would you drop him for Derrick White? Here’s our squad:

        PG1 Lowry
        PG2 Fox
        SG1 Beal
        SG2 Sexton
        SF1 George
        SF2 Brown
        SF3 Oladipo
        PF1 Antetokounmpo
        PF2 Bazley
        PF3 Markannen
        C1 Holmes
        C2 Bagley
        C3 Green

        We can drop Dipo for White, place him then on IL freeing up one roster spot which will probably be occupied by Richardson or House. My willingness to drop Oladipo comes from the possibility that (1) by the end of the year White, Richardson and House will finish the season having better value than him (2) he’s just the worst guy on my roster

        What you say Son

          I do like my RichardSON!!! Tough one but I do like Dipo too. I stay with Dipo but I do like your plan. Go for it
