Finally, I have an offer for Blake Griffin! Take it?
 
Blake Griffin helps me to win PTS and REBs every week. Should I do it? Or should I put together a counter offer?
He offered Dorell Wright for Griffin straight up.

Any ideas? I posted both of our teams.

Strong cats=FG%, points, assists, threes and rebounds.
Punting=FT%

My team:

Al Jefferson PF,C
Tyreke Evans PG,S
Jason Richardson SG,SF
John Wall PG
Channing Frye PF,C
Blake Griffin PF,C
Anthony Morrow SG,SF
Tony Parker PG
Evan Turner SG,SF
Wesley Matthews SG
Chris Anderson PF,C
Carlos Delfino SG,SF
Kris Humphries PF

His team:

Beno Udrih
Daniel Gibson
Grant Hills
Dorell Wright
Carmelo Anthony
Drew Gooden
Zach Randolph
(Mem - PF,C) Player notes
Antawn Jamison
Danny Granger

I wouldn't take that. Griffin's been a beast lately and actually getting some stats besides boards/points. If you can stomach his 55% FT with 7-8 attempts a game, he's worth keeping. Try to counteroffer for something more.

I traded my Griffin with Kaman for Al Jeff and am kind of regretting it, since Griffin exploded after I traded him.

Dorrell Wright has been a mess lately. I own him in several leagues and his shooting has been in the 30% range after he started off really hot.

If you are punting FT%, why are you even wanting to trade Griffin?

What about Wright and Kaman for Griffin? I'm looking to improve FT%, but not sure if it's worth it at this point.

That offer is so bad it doesn't deserve a counter offer.

It's H2H right...what is the difference between being bad in FT and being ok? You 'might' win a few pts over the season in FT, but you are now hurting yourself in bds, FG, scoring etc. Doesn't make sense. Roto sure, but not in H2H.

You listed 5 cats you are winning, Blake helps in those. You should either keep improving those 5 cats so you're dominate in them, or target 1-2 other categories to try and get to 6 great categories. But FT% shouldn't be one of those targets if you listed it in your punting.

Good advice. I've been watching Blake and he makes me nervous. I feel like he's eventually going to hurt himself and I'll miss out. I guess I should just ride it out. I did get him in the 8th round, so I guess I should remember that fact. Thanks all!

YOu can still trade him but the reason should be to improve on those 5 core cats, while hopefullying adding a 6th category to your strengths. If you're concerned with injury then you need to look at alternatives but for a team punting FT%, he is a good fit. Perhaps look for a package that includes a guy like Okafor, or Bogut (hurt though) etc which maintains your FT% strategy. Or try and get a guy who provides some stls, because you look like you should be able to make that your 6th category. Try and make it a big man who steals so you maintain the FG%.

As much as I like Wright and as much as he has helped my own team this year, there is no way that I would take Griffin for Wright straight up.
