Default Should I drop Hibbert for Deandre Jordan?

I was really high on Hibbert earlier in the season, but he seems to get getting worse and worse mostly b/c of the coach getting into his head and recently, not getting minutes.

On the other hand, Deandre looks like a monster and has been ranked #1 the last 2 weeks, largely due to his ridiculous average of 6 blocks.

I was using Hibbert mostly for boards and blocks, should should I dump Hibbert for Deandre? I don't have anyone else I can drop.

It's obviously up to you, but I wouldn't.

Hibbert will bounce back imo..

That's what I was thinking. If Hibbert is really the worst player on his team, then he must have a stellar team.

My team in that league is pretty solid b/c I got lucky w/ mid-late round picks and a bunch of trades. There's also the position thing I don't want to screw up since it's a 12 team roto league and I'm balanced in all cats right now in 1st place. My weakness is blocks, b/c Hibbert/Noah were my anchor in the category but Hibbert has been playing like crap and Noah is out until Feb.

My team in that particular league:

Guards:
Chris Paul
Raymond Felton
Jrue Holiday
DJ Augustin

Forwards:
Rudy Gay
Wilson Chandler
Dorrell Wright
Elton Brand

Centers:
Pau Gasol
Kevin Love
Tyson Chandler
Joakim Noah (inj)
Roy Hibbert --> Deandre Jordan

It's such a tough decision. Hibbert's been extremely frustrating to own the last month and now he's coming off the bench. If you look at his stats, it's dropped every month this season:

Oct: 18/10/5, 2.7 blocks, 47% FG
Nov: 16/9/3, 1.9 blocks, 49% FG
Dec: 11/7/2, 1.7 blocks, 42% FG
Jan: 10/4/2, 0 blocks, 44% FG (1 game only)

The pacers coach keeps complaining about his defense so I don't know what to make of his PT unless they get a new coach. Jordan looks like he's heating up... I guess you're right though, I'll sit on Hibbert a few more and see what happens.

If you're in 1st place like you're saying and you've got this kind of depth/talent, I'd try and move 2 for 1. If that fails and no one bites, just sit on your stud-filled squad. Injuries tend to happen and you'll be set if they do

Yea, thats a good point. I usually try to package 2 for 1's but never get any bites. I guess I just got very excited over Jordan's last 3 games and didn't want someone else to grab him.

14/5, 7 blocks, 100% FG
6/12, 6 blocks, 71% FG
14/20, 6 blocks, 75% FG

It's only 3 games, but still exciting since it's the first time he's getting consistent minutes

I can understand your frustration, but Hibbert's potential long term value is probably not worth the risk of Jordan's short term value. Whether its 5 games or 15 games, Kaman will be back and will destroy whatever value Jordan has. We're not even halfway through the season and already Hibbert has been riding incredible waves of play - he's gone from the hottest young C in the league to a slight role player with terrible stat output. If he's made those kinds of rises and falls in only two months, I have to believe they will continue, which means he'll be frustrating and possibly great again before its all said and done.

Long story short, if you really need short term help in blocks, and adding 25-30 blocks over the next two or three weeks will win you this league, its a gamble you should take. If you feel that Jordan alone will not carry you to the title, then I'd stay put and hope for a comeback from Hibbert.
