Joel is in Milwaukee while I’m in Hawaii. “Ha Ha” in Nelson from Simpson’s voice. We talk about where our drafts are at 1/3 of the season and go over a mid-season draft we are currently in.

12 team, 9 category league. Going through a mountain of injuries but doing a decent job of weathering the storm. Brighter days ahead. My team is:
Jokic, Embiid, Portis
Nance, PJ Washington, O’Neale
Wiggins, Hayward, Ingram, K Anderson
McCollum, Maxey, Middleton
Holiday, Suggs

1. Waiver wire is not great: Clarke, Batum, Looney, Fultz but we get 7 pickups per week so looking to create a streamer spot. If I do do, who is my cut?
2. Would you trade away Wiggins and Portis for Sabonis (gets me that streamer spot too)
3. Wiggins and Ingram for Sabonis and Bojan?

I traded Dame and Russ for Embiid and Portis. I was looking to shore up FG% and boards.

So far I think that has been a pretty fair trade as he wanted Dame’s threes and FT%.

I am trying to get Kessler as I missed him off the wire. I offered Slo Mo but rightfully was rejected. Would you trade Nance for him or hold?
How about O’Neale?

I’d hold nance. Would trade Royce but I’d imagine getting Kessler would be difficult

Yep, he is not even entertaining offers until he sees what Kessler can do with these extra minutes.
1. Royce not good three games prior to being out and dreadful tonight. Rusty for sure. So I need to cut him or Slo Mo. Slo Mo has an expiration date when Towns gets back so I guess he goes??
2. Is Tyus Jones a decent fit for me? He is a backup but stats look pretty good. Morant seems to miss time too. Or I can grab Clarke I guess and his boring 10-5 line with no blocks.
Thanks for our chats lol

Not surprised at the Kessler situation. Tons of upside.

I’d rather cut slow mo for reason yoh stated

I think Tyus is fine. More upside than Clarke

I’m here for you, boo

I know you get lonely so I am asking all these questions to solve that and so you can collect .2345 of a cent in ad revenues!
First, ugh on AD. I know he is your guy. Good luck.
Second, some key drops to the WW last night. So now we have Tyus, Bruce Brown and Mamba available. What swaps if any age you making? Here’s the squad again so you have context in our 12 team, 9 category league.

Jokic, Embiid, Portis
PJ Washington, Nance, Slo Mo
Wiggins, Ingram, Hayward, Middleton
O’Neale, Maxey
Holiday, Suggs, McCollum

Hey Son!

In one league, I was offered AD for my RobWill – high upside, but too much risk to accept?

In 18t points, wondering who’s the best play out of Nembhard (gets minutes but does almost nothing with them stats-wise), Ayo (ebbs and flows but seems better suited for points then Nembhard), Payton Jr (when’s he returning, what’s his role?) and Delon (the positional versatility is useful, and even if he’s not big on points, he’s versatile enough to have impact in 18t).

I’d stay away from AD. Foot injuries are scary for big men. And it’s AD.

I’m with you on Delon

Hey Son! Happy upcoming holidays!

Another team in distress:12 team 9 cat h2h, punting FG%.

With Bane back, could Brooks be a drop? He’s a limited asset anyway, but has had some use, however with WCJ returning, I need to make room for him, and I thought I’d use the last day I can make moves to hoard GP2 and Delon in IL slots. And in general, wondering if there would be anyone I could drop for Sochan or Wiseman, or am I just better off not window shopping based on the very latest box scores. What do you make of the team in terms of potential drops and pickups?
 
Team:
Harden Tre Rozier FVV Fultz Hayes
Grimes JalenWill Brooks
OG Lauri
KP WCJ Poku TimeLord

SON,

Happy Holidays!! So I’m in 2nd and not 1st in one of my league (my team is silly good) but I’m up 7-2 H2H Yahoo 9 CAT Standatd league and am going against 1st place (I’m only a couple games out of first).

Someone actually dropped Tyrese Maxey!!

I have put a $24 claim in for him and will be dropping DiVincenzo

Does that sound about right?

Here is my roster

PG – Chris Paul
SG – Tyler Herro
G – Gary Trent Jr.
SF – Anthony Edwards
PF – Kevin Durant
F – OG Anunoby
C – Jarrett Allen
C – Brook Lopez
UTIL – Al Horford
UTIL – Kevin Huerter
B – Malik Beasley
B – Donte DiVincenzo
B – Kyle Kuzma
B – Kentavious Caldwell Pope

My 2nd Q is if I get Maxey and IL him and activate Trent, who do I drop when I Get Maxey?

So drop Donte, pick up Maxey, swap him for Trent, then drop _______ when Maxey comes back.

I’m think KCP. Beasley has been a beast on the 3P end and gets solid steals and low TO’s. I would drop Horford buy I think he’ll get stronger as the season goes on.

Another league I have to drop someone to activate Bane. Jalen Williams or Malik Monk?

Thanks a lot Son!!

I have been offered Dame, OG and Rui for Ingram, Maxey and Wiggins. Not sure I want Rui and could counter or pass.
Would you trade for Lillard and OG with my team below? (Nine categories)

Embiid, Jokic, Portis
PJ Washington, Wiggins, O’Neale
Ingram, Maxey, Hayward
Jrue, Bruce Brown,McCollum, Suggs,

1. Of Maxey, Wiggins and Ingram I get to keep one. Who would you keep?
2. So the trade would be two from the three above and now Portis for Dame, OG and Rui. I think losing Portis is better than losing One of Ingram, Wiggins or Maxey. You?

Merry Christmas AND in question #1 I am asking who of those three you would want to keep on your team…Wiggins, Maxey or Ingram. The other two get traded.
