Please help me pick up a free agent
 
Here's my team 14 team Yahoo! H2H 9 cats... Please rate my team and help me fill some holes in it - I was thinking of dropping Duhon for one of the free agents...

PG Marbury
SG Pierce
G Nelson
SF Nocioni
PF Kirilenko
F Dunleavy
C Okur
C Boozer
Util Mobley
Util Nene
BN Ratliff
BN Hill
BN Duhon

Barbosa - enough minutes behind Bell and Nash?
Gomes - starter until Al Jefferson explodes
Webster - with Miles injured might play big minutes at 2/3
Swift - might play more than Petro
Livingston - performed well in NBA Europe Live tour, but Sam didn't play at all

I'd definitely drop Duhon, just cant figure out for who... Either Gomes, Webster, or Livingston. Since Cassell is getting up there in age, i'd kinda say Livingston.... Gomes would be the safest choice though, especially if u want help right away and dont feel like waiting on Livingston or Webster. Based on potential, i'd go Livingston... If u wanna play it safe, go with Gomes.

check if j. tinsley is still a free agent hes a great pickup

GoDuke 10-10-2006 11:40 PM

Rivers is saying that he might use Gomes at SF and PF positions - which means more minutes (the most important factor for fantasy value)... so I guess I'm not making a huge mistake by taking him... how about grabbing Swift for Ratliff, will I be tanking blocks? (AK can't do it all by himself)

Glove_20 10-10-2006 11:43 PM

Kendrick Perkins...Is he there?

He = Mini Dalembert

7pt 7reb 2blk

He put that the last 2 months of the year, when he was the starter, and he is the starter this year too...

PS: He was only 20 last year...

see if you can get chris wilcox for ratliff. he is available in most leagues.

GoDuke 10-11-2006 02:38 AM

it's a 14 team league (13 players each) so Perkins and Wilcox were drafted in late mid rounds... Wilcox went real high due to all this hype/sleeper status...

HoopitUP 10-11-2006 03:26 AM

Hey i dont want to start another thread so i just wanted to ask,

ive got claxtonon the bench and tinsley is FA should i drop claxton to pick him up or keep him LOL i know it might be a dumb question but this is my first year of fantasy ball.
stat cats FG%, FT%, 3PTM, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK, TO

tell me what you think ?

GoDuke 10-11-2006 05:06 AM

actually if I had Speedy on my team and Tinsley available I would be asking the same question too... however, since 1) Speedy most probably will return by the start of the season... 2) he will be getting starter minutes on a very dynamic team which fits his style... I'd hold on to Claxton... plus owning Tinsley is much like owning Camby...

any advice would help its my first year playin fantasy.

thanks

thejoyofsobe 10-11-2006 10:28 PM

If the guy is offering you Peja in exchange Ginobli, I would do that in a heartbeat. You'll get more threes, more points, more rebounds and a better Ft% than most players in the NBA. You ought to have 3PTM and quite possibly points wrapped up if you make this trade.

You need blocks and rebounds. There is no reason Foyle should be on anyone's roster unless it's a 30 team league. Is that Kenny Thomas or Kurt Thomas?

RidonKs 10-11-2006 10:52 PM

Man, I gave Speedy away in a blockbuster for basically nothing a while ago, because I thought that he was supposed to be out for the first portion of the season. I actually thought I was playing the guy by including him. Oh well.

BTW, Gadzuric should be a solid pickup for the first while, now that Bogut's out, shouldn't he?

kenny thomas.
i dropped foyle and picked up t.battie waiting for it to go through waivers or something like that.

yep i accepted the manu for peja trade. anything else i can do to boost my team ?

thanks again for the help much appreciated

GoDuke 10-12-2006 04:19 AM

Gadzuric will start but CV will benefit the most from Bogut's injury... by the way, now that Bogut's gone: Ratliff or Gadzuric?
