Hey man! Just a question, how do you value Avdija and Cameron Johnson? Would you drop Huerter for either in 10t 9cat H2H in a vacuum?

Gotcha, thanks! It’s an odd situation to still have Time Lord in my IR, so I’m effectively barred from making any moves unless he gets the occasional Out tag. Just out of interest, what’s Cam purported value in category formats? He had quite a bit of hype going into the season but I’m not sure of the strengths.

Mainly points and treys with a touch of boards, dimes and steals

I had a Cam question too. Currently have N Powell, Olynyk and Kessler as my last three guys. Would you drop any for Cam Johnson thinking he absorbs most of the Booker impact?

Naw. Cam is who he is. Don’t think the usage ticks up too much. I’ve been known to be wrong, though, a lot so go with gut

I just traded away Hayward and KCP for BLo and Lonnie. I will likely drop Walker since he is hurt and stream the spot. I just had have too many injuries this past month and don’t trust Hayward. BLo no guarantee for health but paired with Embiid and Kessler, I think Brook gives me instant competitiveness in blocks. Here’s the new dinged up squad (had 7 guys out on Wednesday) which is floundering but I think has potential:

Embiid, Jokic, BLo, Kessler
Portis, PJ Wash, Ingram,
Middleton, Wiggins, N Powell
Jrue, McCollum, Maxey
IR: Lonnie

1. Am I missing holes in my lineup? A month of guys not playing has been my excuse for drifting back in the standings, but maybe this is not a championship roster? What say you? Areas to fix?
2. WW pretty thin but there are guys like Bruce Brown, Avdija, Royce, T Jones, Cam Johnson. Any of these better than Powell?

Squad looks good to me. Just need health. I think you can stream that norm spot

Points league dilemma! 18T. Squad is:

Kyrie Fox Fultz Bones
Edwards JalenW MPJ
Siakam PJW Olynyk Turner
Cam Johnson (IR)

Lowry and Eason were just dropped. Would you bid for either? I can only imagine dropping Bones for either if anything, but unsure. Eason could be an important piece ROS, but I’ve no idea what the Rockets rotation is going to look like.

If you think Eason gets a bigger role as season continues, then go for it. Agreed on Bones

Got it! Does look like a dubious dice roll with Tate also back. What about Bones vs Nowell? Quite similar on some level in my opinion, but wonder if there’s any difference maker between the two, be it stats or just minutes or usage related outlook.

Similar but nowell has a cleaner depth chart to navigate

League Manager vetoed my trade that landed me BLo and Lonnie for Hayward and KCP. I was frustrated at first only to learn my trade partner also agreed to another deal trading away Ja for Russ and Dray. So it looks like that owner was stripping down his squad for some reason. First year in the league. So all that brings me to ask this:
1. Would you trade away Wiggins and Portis for VanVleet and Huerter? I worry about the hit to FG% but have enjoyed VV’s counters in past years.

My squad below:

Jokic, Embiid, Kessler
Portis, PJ Washington,
Ingram, Wiggins, Middleton
Bruce Brown, Maxey, Suggs
Holiday, McCollum, Tyus/streamer
IR: Hayward

Vetoes are Manute Bolshit!!!!

Where are you on Middleton? Obviously he has been frustrating to own. I am in good position to make the playoffs so I have been patient since i traded for him a couple of weeks ago. Owners keep inquiring about him and Wiggins. Which one would you trade away in the right deal?

I’d be okay trading away both

His final offer is me getting VanVleet and Huerter for my Middleton and Wiggins. While I like moving on from Middleton, this seems like a steep price given VV’s shooting and turnover challenges. What do you think?

New league mates are so funny. I declined his offer so he sent back a counter: his VV for my Wiggins. I took that. If this deal gets vetoed, I am out lol. Appreciate you letting me spam up your site.

What do you think about Vassell (for this season, first and Foremost, but we also have keepers).

He was dropped in my 10 team league, and I was wondering if I could drop Huerter for him when PG returns, as we have just the one IR slot. Team be:

Lillard TreJ Fultz
Hield Rozier Huerter
PG Jaden Kuz
Embiid KP JabariS Sengun Rob Will
