Fantasy Team + Suggestions?
Currently I am 7th place out of 12. Under 10 games from first spot. I am still a rookie to fantasy. This is my current team, anything I should try and work on/move?

Tony Parker
OJ Mayo
Mo Williams
Jameer Nelson

Iman Shumpert
Jeff Green
Jimmy Butler
Wesley Mathews
Ryan Anderson

Dwight Howard
Joakim Noah
Glen Davis
Enes Kanter

I am usually down in ft% and assists and rebounds

These are some players unsigned

Danny Green
Ray Allen
M. Morris
Nick Young
W. Johnson
Reggie Jackson

I would try to get rid of Dwight. Your FT% is hurting because of him. He's cancerous in fantasy.

I'd pick up Reggie Jackson. He is going to start while Westbrook is out and will give you needed assists and while he doesn't shoot a ton of ft's, he is shooing 93%.

Re: Fantasy Team + Suggestions?
pick up Reggie Jackson, Nick Young and M Morris. Package Dwight+Jeff Green and Glen Davis in a trade for 2 bigs and a point guard

I basically employ four different types of fixes for situations like this, I will break them down separately in four different posts

SELL HIGH- this has nothing to do with drugs but if you want to do it high that's ok with me, I won't tell anyone. basically this is where you take a player you believe is performing above his normal level and you try to move him while the stock is high. this is like in the summer when it's super hot out and water and ice cream prices go way up because there's so little water and ice cream in your tiny 3rd world village. supply and demand meets fantasy baskeball

BUY LOW - this won't actually cost you any real money unless you're in a league that deals in real money, in which case it could cost you a lot of money. Basically this is finding a guy you believe to be underachieving and trading less to get him than you expect from him. This takes a little faith and a willing trade partner but it's probably the best way to best way a belt way best way. Nest egg

2 for 1 - this has nothing to do with killing birds or having an orgasm in a girls mouth and ****** simultaneously. in fact it has nothing to do with either of those things at all. in fact, it's weird that I even had to clarify that for you. 2 for 1 is where you trade 2 good players for one GREAT player. you'll have to crunch the numbers based on your particular league's settings but basically you trade 7 and 7 for 10. now 7+7 = 14 but sometimes, SOMETIMES, it benefits you to roll with the 10. Like if the best guy on your bench is a 5... then you traded 14 for 10 but you end up with 15, and sometimes that 5 grows like a flower

BANKRUPTCY - aka forfeit. this is where you have some bunk team like yours and you quit now and save some time and heart ache. who drafted that team, a dummy? probably a dummy. I don't mean that you're dumb, I just think that a crash test dummy or some sort of mannequin did the drafting because no human could screw things up that bad. ahhhhh I'm just jerkin yer chain, just breaking your balls, I think you're great and your team is a shoe in to hover around .500 and not make the playoffs
