Yahoo winners league team, standard cats, roto.
Currently sitting third overall but is really close at the top. I'm three points off first and the top seven teams are separated by eight points.
my ranks are (standings wise not points)
first (ie best 12 points) in AST; 2nd FT%, 3PT, PTS; 4th BLK, 6th STL; 9th REB, 10th FG% and last in TOs.
My team is
Jason Terry, Joe Johnson, Mo Williams, Rudy Gay, Travis Outlaw, Pau Gasol, Yao Ming, Ray Allen, Randy Foye, Brendon Hayward, Chris Kaman, Devin Harris and Elton Brand.
I have quite a few games in hand still approx 50 less than every other team in the top seven appart from one which I have 20 games on so hopefully I shouldn't be run down in any stat. The stats I'm most likely to make up ground in are BLK where one guys is 5 ahead of me and REB where two teams are within 200 of me but have played a lot more games. In STL the next guy ahead of me will is about 45 up but has played 50 more games. (And 3PT where the top guys is about 20 ahead but has played 75 more games so I'll catch him no probs).
Ming and Hayward are (relatively) new additions to the team so my REB and BLK should continue to increase a bit.
Now my question is Ben Wallace has been dropped to Waivers obviously he'll provide a boost to REB and BLK and some good STL from C along with horrible FT% (which I should be able to handle I'm up 1.1% on 3rd. I've got the #2 waiver priority.
So is Wallace worth picking up and if so who do I drop?
Brand who I've been waiting on all year?
Hayward who's averaged 12 PPG/7RPB/1.3BPG/53%FG/81%FT the last month?
Travis Outlaw 14.7PPG/3.5RPG/0.5AST-STL-BLK for the last month but is one of only two SFs on my roster so if Gay got hurt...
Is he worth using the number two waiver priority on?
Meh lots to think about anyway!
It think you team is ok needs some improvement. I would have traded away Mo Williams away when Redd was out get some really good like maybe Granger. Ben Wallace scares me, same with Shaq he is fa's in my league. I don't think you should pick up Ben Wallace. I don't like Brand to come back becuase he is coming back to a losing team with a losing season, no playoffs. I think Clippers are devopling Al Thorton for next season anyway

For some reason I think Brand might be back for at least a few weeks but will probably be too late to help in roto much.
Did try and move Williams for some more size. Made a couple of trades throughout the year.
Baron for Yao (when Baron was the second ranked fantasy player) that one got vetoed at first and I had to argue long and loud before it got let through.
Okur, Tinsley and Rashard Lewis for Terry, Allen and Haywood. Needed abit more size I felt and some FG%!
Thanks for your help might see if Wallace clears waivers. Hopefully that'll give me a chance to see him play a game or two...
