Default Need Help. Went from 1st place to 6th!!!

I'm in a 10 team yahoo h2h league, with only 1 center position. I was in 1st place 5 weeks ago, and then lost and am in 6th place. Only the top 6 make it to playoffs, so I can't afford to drop any further. The team on top was my first place team, on the bottom is current.

Deron Williams
Beno Udrih
Kobe Bryant
Richard Hamilton
Monta Ellis
Caron Butler
Carmelo Anthony
Richard Jefferson
Danny Granger
Kenyon Martin
Chris Kaman
Al Horford

Deron Williams
Mike Bibby
Randy Foye
Kobe Bryant
Richard Hamilton
Grant Hill
Caron Butler
Carmelo Anthony
Danny Granger
David West
Chris Kaman
Al Horford

Foye has been crap and I am willing to get rid of him. Hill has been playing horribly too, but don't know if its worth dropping him. There is a decent list of free agents, but don't know if I should go small or big. Nazr Mohammed (starting rest of season), Chris Webber (starting rest of season), TJ Ford (back from injury), Damon Stoudamire, Andrew Bynum, Devin Harris, or jameer nelson.

I think you've got to take your current standing with a grain of salt. There was no way for you to win over the last two weeks with Kaman, Melo, Butler and Hill missing significant time, coupled with weak games from Foye, Bibby and Kobe (relative to what we can usually get from them).

I think you need to drop Foye for Ford first. He will give you the assists you need over the next two months, after getting back in to game shape over the next two weeks. A combo of guard play from Deron, Kobe, Rip, Bibby and Ford will be stellar for the rest of the way IMO.

You've got a lot of tweeners when it comes to the sf cat. Melo, Caron, Granger and Hill (to a more minor extent) do many of the same things for you. Of those, Melo might be the man to deal, as other owners are always in love with his scoring ability, and he tends to be the least dimensional of the three in terms of Caron, Granger and Melo. If you think you can get by without Melo's points and boards from the forward spot, I think you wait a week or two when his injury is healed and deal him for a guy who fills the cat/cats you are needing the most right now.

Your PFs do nice things, as West has emerged as a beast and Horford keeps quietly scoring you a double-double each night. While they do great things for you, this may be the cat (along with C) that you need to beef up in.

Although the return of Brand means Kaman will eventually lose value, he remains a decent option for now. Making a plan now for Brand's return next month may be a great longterm move.

Jamison might be a nice target for you as you can use his boards and threes, and you can probably get him for Melo straight up. Maybe you want to look into getting Al Jefferson or Duncan for Kaman, or at least get Chandler and someone else for him.

What cats are you winning/losing?

Ford was picked up long before I could pick him up...sucks. I think harris or jameer nelson might be a good fit, but harris is hurt right now, and nelson has been known to be inconsistent.

My strongest categories are points, steals and assists. My ft% is also very good. Rebounds/fg% is 6-7 every week. 3ptm and blocks i am 5-8 and I am horrible with to's.

So dealing Melo might make the most sense for you (sell high on his big night last night!), as you dont need his scoring and he doesnt hit a lot of threes. Jamison would give you boards and threes, and you sell the deal by offering more scoring and higher %'s. I'd rather have Harris than Jameer, and it sounds like Harris is getting close to coming back (apparently the boot he was wearing is off and he's not limping when he walks at all), so that's who I'd target for Foye. Might want to do that quickly as someone will grab him soon when healthy.

And if you dont like the idea of dealing Melo, Caron should be able to get you another big man for boards and blocks. You're gonna have to wait on that one though, as dealing him now while he's injured means less of a return on his stellar value this year.
