    What do you think of this team?

    10 Team H2H League, 8 Categories: FG%, FT%, 3FG, PTS, REB, AST, STL, BLK

    Currently in 8th place (14-18-0), but only 5 games out of 1st place right now.

    My statistical breakdowns:
    FG% FT% 3PTM PTS REB AST ST BLK
    2-2-0 0-4-0 4-0-0 1-3-0 1-3-0 3-1-0 2-2-0 1-3-0

    I think I need to move Dwight (FT's, Lakers have the least amount of games during fantasy playoffs) but for who?

    Do I drop Bynum right now? With him I think I would be in pretty solid shape...

    PG - Goran Dragic
    SG - Manu Ginobili
    G - Mike Conley
    SF - Paul George
    PF - Ryan Anderson
    F - Blake Griffin
    C - Dwight Howard
    C - Omer Asik
    Util - Damian Lillard
    BN - Ramon Sessions, Byron Mullens, Dion Waiters, Jameer Nelson, Andrew Bynum (IL)

    • Your team is a mess. Both Howard and Asik will kill your FT%, as will Blake Griffin. I actually would advise you to punt FT%. With a punt FT% build, try to buy Rondo and Iguodala, but don't overpay for them. I would drop Bynum.

    • Any other opinions? Can I swap Waiter/Sessions/Nelson for a guy who can get me blocks/rebs?

      • I would listen to Aaron, he is giving you great advice. Unless you trade away Howard, Griffin AND Asik, you are better off keeping them and punting the FT% category. Without FT% as a concern Howard has potential to be a top 5 player, with Griffin probably top 15.
        I would definitely target Rondo and Josh Smith. Some other players who's value goes up when you decide to punt FT% would be: Brook Lopez, Andrei Kirilenko, Greg Monroe, Kenneth Faried, Roy Hibbert, Marcin Gortat, JJ Hickson and Glen Davis.... Now some of these players have downsides besides FT% and might not fit your team, and I'm definitely not saying you should try to make moves for all of them. But if you could trade a couple of your guys for players that are more valueable outside of FT% you'd be better off.

        It would really suck to trade Howard for a big man with better FT% but less overall value, only to find out you are still losing FT% each week. Because then you would have just downgraded all together.
