Good team for your first time drafting. In a roto league Durant, Jackson, and Wallace are a great core. Then add in Boozer when he get's healthy and John Wall and thats a great starting lineup. I'd worry a little about Bynum and Carter but over all a good team

Default Re: First time playing fantasy, check out my team!

after the first day it seems i really need some help with my team..

i am ranked 9 out of 11 teams today.
a few problems.. i had no idea kenyon martin was injured, so i dropped him already.
today, most of my players had games, and 3 players didnt help at all
boozer was injured, so thats that.
but andrei kirilenko and emeka okafor really hurt me today.. both had nth in stats really.. okafor had 9 rebounds but nothing else.

so now i have 1 free spot, and am looking to drop AK47 (should i?)
so that i will have 2 free spots in my roster.
so for those 2 spots, who should i pick from the free agent list?

Its my first time as well. I'm number 1 in my league, leading in 4 categories including scoring and assists. This is my team.


Rondo, E. Gordon, LBJ, Blake Griffin, Bogut, Ray Allen, Andy Varejao, JJ Hickson, Micheal Beasley, John Salmons, Derrick Favors, Boobie Gibson and Tiago Splitter.

Default Re: First time playing fantasy, check out my team!

it seems i am in need of big men..

boozer is out
bynum is out
AK47 first game was all 0's
okafor had 9 rebounds and nothing else..

"Waiver 1 - Oct 29: Bid $1 for Carlos Delfino - [Cancel Waiver]"
Waiver Time: 2 days
Waiver Type: FAAB w/ Continual rolling list tiebreak
can someone explain to me what this means?

So i wait until Oct 29th then i get the player, unless someone out bids me?
does that mean everytime i add a free agent i have to wait 2 days?

so carlos delfino is taking up my free spot.
now i need another center who gives me rebounds.
Should i drop bynum for taj gibson??

I wouldn't freak out or make any conclusions based on one game. You need to give players at least a few weeks to see what they do

ok so i gave AK47 another game and he did great today, 19pts, so i guess he is staying.
I also got Taj Gibson in my free agent spot to give me more points and rebounds.

The final problem is having bynum and boozer both injured, it'll hurt me in a roto league.. thinking of dropping bynum for luke ridnour..
