    Well, Nance’s is value will go down a lot when Love returns, so I’m not really down for any of these trades.

      Thank you. Capela just been a monster so it is compelling to take him over JV.

      WW: OPJ, Lamb, Mills. Please pick one

          Last one!
          Lamb good game tonight. With LeVert out for the foreseeable future, you like him or Burks who was so good earlier this year.

                I’d rather have Oubre but if you’re sick of him or don’t believe, it’s fine to swap for LMA.

    This is my roster, I’m currently at the bottom of the rankings. I’m in desperate measures but I don’t wanna make any stupid moves. Who should I trade away to help my team, for the long stretch?

    PG: J.Murray, Lonzo, Conley, Haliburton
    SG: Booker
    SF: Leonard, J.Grant
    PF: Sabonis, Green, Covington
    C: JJJ, Cousins, R.Williams

    • Ary says:

      Oh yeah the format is 9-cat with 12 team

      Tough question to answer because it’s dependent on your league context. You obviously want to maximize value so you have to send out the emissaries to gauge what the other owners think. Once you get a lay of the land, then you have to figure out your vision. Once you do that, then the steps should become more clear.

    Drop Dillon Brooks for Aldridge or Oubre? Assume I need help across the board in 9 category roto, mostly points, 3s, steals, and have some depth so position doesn’t matter much. Thanks!

    AyO!

    Sir Son,

    I am looking for some insight.

    12 team – 15 man roster DEEP. H2H 13 cat.

    Boards are heavy. Centers are gold.

    Curry / FVV / Conley / Schroder
    Paul George / Otto / Justin Holiday / Lamb
    Collins / Bazley / Cam Johnson
    Capela / Wendell / Plumlee / Wiseman

    Horford was dropped. And I know, he is washed and probably should be dropped, but not in a 12 team center driven league in my opinion. Now I do have a few disposable pieces to maybe scoop him. (I’m 2nd on waivers)

    Thinking in order my drops would be – Justin, Cam, or Lamb.

    Also on thin ice is – Otto & Bazley… Huuuy.

    I acknowledge that I need a little Scoring, 3s & assists.

    But a center is a center.. Also Whiteside was dropped.

    Is picking Al up the move ? For ?

    Btw your podcasts are great. Even with that background aquarium sound…. I like to imagine you are transmitting from beneath sea level.

    14 team, 9 cat H2H

    Here’s squad:

    PG- Paul
    SG- Dort
    G- Westbrook
    SF- Keldon
    F- Oubre
    PF- Boucher
    C- Ayton
    UTIL- Ibaka
    BN – Ross, Robin Lopez, KCP, Ingles, Vanderbilt
    IL – Bogdan
    IL- KAT

    Would you trade Keldon for Gallinari?

    • Son

      Son says:
      (link)

      I wouldn’t

      • Dungeons and Dragics says:
        (link)

        How about Ross and Keldon for Coby and Gallinari?

        • Son

          Son says:
          (link)

          I’m not a fan of Gallinari

    With JV, JJJ and Horford out still, I am starting another week with a projection of having 8 less games than my opponent. He is an aggressive streamer too.
    Last two weeks I played so-so teams and won by winning FG, FT, Blocks, Assists and TOs. This week my opponent is very good. So if I am to stream away this week (7 max), who do I drop? Context: in third place, h2h league, 9 cats.

    Harden, Paul, Bledsoe
    Beal, Burks, Barton
    Keldon, Hunter
    Horford, JJJ
    JV, Ayton, Holmes, B Lopez
    Leaning Barton with Porter back but thought I would ask the SON.

    Thanks!
