Please tell me:
1. How many team league?
2. Is it rotisserie or Head to Head league format?
3. Who are players on your team?
4. What stats are you struggling in?
Please tell me:
1. Who your team is (to see if someone is worth dropping)
2. What stats you are struggling in.
12 team h2h league, i've been weak on ft% and fg% and sometimes blocks steals and rebounding.
I just traded Dwight, Stuckey, Crawford, and Shaq for DWade, Al Jefferson, and Jason Richardson.
I've been dropping and adding between Odom, Dalembert, Udrih, Augustin, and some others and I have those 2 on my team now. Any ideas on how to improve my roster? Was it a good move to make the Dwight trade? Thanks a lot
H2H 12 Teams FGM FG% 3PTM FTM PTS OREB DREB AST STL BLK
I traded Biedrins/Marvin for Al Jeff....that was 5 weeks ago. I'm now trading Nene/Diaw to get back Biedrins. I will have a free roster spot. I'm not weak anywhere, but I could use some more rebounds, especially offensive rebounds, but what I mostly want is a player who will have the most value regardless of position. I want a player that will get minutes and stay healthy. Who will hold the most value the rest of the season? N Robinson, Hinrich, Big Z, Kaman
Hi, my current team is:
Im in an 18 team H2H and am currently in 7th place. I have been doing well these past weeks.
What can I do to make my team better?
I have plenty of guards, what type of trade can I make to get an extra big man?
Thanks for your input.
I'm in a shallow 8-team h2h league using the stardard 8 cats. Each team has a 12-man roster with starting positions of: pg, sg, g, sf, pf, f, c, util, plus 4 bench. I'm currently 5th in my league due to injured players, but slowly moving up with their return. Each team is only allowed twenty transactions for the season and i've already made seven.
-Deron Williams, Jameer Nelson, Chris Duhon
-Manu Ginobili, Jason Richardson, Michael Redd
-Danny Granger, Wilson Chandler
-Kevin Garnett, La Marcus Aldridge
-Yao Ming, Spencer Hawes
I think my weakest stats are steals, points, and maybe fg%, however I don't feel like I dominate any of the other categories either. I'd like to be more competitive with the top 2-3 teams in my league; any idea how to improve my team through trade or dropping? I was thinking of dropping Wilson Chandler for Nate Robinson.
Notable waiver players include: Nate Robinson, Rodney Stuckey, Andre Miller, TJ Ford, Steve Blake, Rudy Fernandez, Mario Chalmers, Eric Gordon, Boris Diaw, Andrew Bogut, Brad Miller, Chris Kaman, Jermaine Oneal, Tyson Chandler, Zydrunas Ilgauskas (just dropped), Joel Pryzbilla, Mike Miller, Mike Dunleavey, Tayshaun Prince, and Charlie Villanueva amongst others.
10 team h2h
i had yao too but had to drop him
i made huge trades :
dirk, kevin martin, and gooden for lebron, crawford, and kaman
straight up traded baron davis for allen iverson to help in points and fg% and ft%
kirk hinrich and barbosa for paul peirce
Currently im in first in my league and cliched the playoff spot with a record of 115-45-2
i usually win each week at least 7-2 cuz i lose in ft% and turnovers
but with yao out i have won 2 weeks in a row in turnovers
which the previous weeks i had only won once out of 18 weeks
so what do u think of my team?
Dwade & Melo for CP3 & Hedo who wins I get Wade & Melo
I personally don't want to do it, I think It's making my team worst. I'm struggling in FG% and 3's and blocks. Also I want to know if I should drop N Mohammed?
12 team league H2H
I wanted to thank all of you for the awesome questions! I hope you have enjoyed my advice. I'll now only be taking questions in the "GENERAL" forum. Simply search the word "CHOstradamus" and you should find my thread there. Thanks guys! And please, keep the questions coming.

What is up Josh? I am having some problems in blocks, I want josh Smith or Sammy D or LaMarcus Aldrige, or another good center. It's a 14 team league,h2h.
Juan Carlos Navarro
Another Guy's Team, by the way I trade this guy Beno for Manu

You owned that guy getting Manu for Beno, haha how'd that get through!? As far as blocks go, if you want to get a guy like Smith, you'll have to show that you're serious. I can't see those teams parting with those guys, though. A lot of times you have to look at what other teams are struggling at in general, and if you have an abundance at a stat you offer the weaker team what they need that you have in abundance. So, I'd say look for teams with a need for maybe something like three pointers, and browse over what big-men they have. Then offer a trade to your strength! Hope this helps!

I've been offered Iverson for Calderon and Turkoglu.
In my (rotisserie) league we have the following stat categories: FG%, FT%, 3PTM, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK, TO
- I am leading the league in PTS, REB, and AST.
- I am towards the top in FT%, 3PTM and BLK.
- I am towards the middle in FG% and ST.
- However, I am near the bottom in TO.
Should I take the offer?
As far as depth goes, there are thirteen people playing in this league, and each team contains nine players. I also have Terry, Granger, Gasol, Dirk, Ellis, Kaman, and Hill.
My initial inclination was to reject this trade, but I may be able to withstand the loss of two players by playing the waiver wire.
I am a little bit concerned that Calderon will drop off in the coming months when Ford returns and/or Toronto signs another PG to play off the bench. Also, Turkoglu was going through a really, really rough patch - which he seems to have come out of now.

This is a trade where you get the obvious best player. Usually that person wins out in the trade. I personally think that this trade helps you a lot more than you think, mainly because Turkoglu's FG% is a total stinker. You know what's great about this trade is you don't actually even lose out on FG%, it's actually right around the same. The number of total shots made and taken by Calderon and Turkoglu is about what Iverson is hitting at from the field. Also, you're gaining steals for sure in this. I'd go look for someone like Jamario Moon after this trade goes through. Take the deal and go pick up another guy who can get you some assists, if you really need or just look for the best available player. Hope this helps!!!
