Default Roto strategy???

Yahoo casual league
FG,FT, 3 Pts made, Pts, Reb, Asst, Steals, Blocks, TO

Any particular strategy to Roto?

I know FG% and FT% are tough catagories to correct past mid-season.

Should one concentrate in those areas during the first part of the season before other categories?

If strong in a particlar catagory, say Rebounds, do you try to dominate that catagory early and then correct the other cats?

Do you use every game position for the full allotment for the season, or pick and choose your best players only?

I don't know if there is a general strategy, but what works for you?

I drafted 12th out of 12.

My team...

PG Chris Paul PG
SG Kevin Durant SG/SF
G Peja SG/SF
SF Richard Jefferson SF
PF Pau Gasol PF/C
F Emeka Okafor PF/C
C La Marcus Aldridge PF/C
C Mikki Moore PF/C
U David Lee SF/PF
U Kyle Lowry PG/SG
BN Kapono SG/SF
BN Navarro PG/SG
BN Travis Outlaw SF/PF

Took Gasol with 12th and Chris Paul with 13th. (There IS a GOD!)

Lowry/ Navarro ( Will be surprise players this year and possible trade bait)

Outlaw for Blocks
Kapono for 3's

Where am I weak?
If strong at C/PF, who do I trade for my weakness?

Thanks guys!

Your team has some holes, Peja is your only consistent 3 point shooter, and he'll go down at some point. You're also weak at assist. You should be fine at ft, and fg%... but I could also see your team taking a hit from Durant growing pains.

My roto advice is focus on improving your weakness instead of trying to dominate certain category. If you're at the bottom for one cat you really have a slim chance at winning the league.

Yeah Durant...

What horrible percentages he's putting up at Summer Leagues and preseason. I might have to sit on him for awhile. Thanks for the critique. I may have to make a trade to up my Assists and 3's.

I'm hoping Peja comes through this year.
Expect Gasol to be this years star player.
Hope Okafor stays healthy.

Thanks again.

Should I trade Okafor for Barbosa or Mike Miller?

Either one would give me Assists and 3's.

Miller might be more versatile at SG and SF.

One guy has no Center...well Elton Brand this could be a possible trade to benefit both teams.

What do you think?

Addendum 2 days after this post...

Dropped Lowry, added Alston, traded Durant for McGrady.

I think I have improved some of my weaknesses. Will hold on to Okafor as possible trade bait.

Any more recommendations are appreciated.
