    Pre-Draft Rankings

    Of course. All you need to do is filter by position first, then adjust those ranks to your liking. The only complication you'll encounter is that if you have a highly ranked player with multiple eligibility and you have to autodraft, it is not easy to ensure that your draft list would be able to account for that. In other words, say Edwin Encarnacion is a highly ranked player for you but is 1B/3B player that you had slotted at 3B because you think it's more shallow. Well you may get E5, but autodraft may slot him at 1B instead of 3B, which means in the next few rounds it would then pick up the highest ranked player to fill 3B even if you have a 1B who is a better overall player (and would therefore help your team more). ood Luck!

    Trade help!

    Personally, I would do that trade sight unseen. Kobe's big edge here is his scoring (23 PPG) but he's old and creaky and he's on a terrible team. Green is already way ahead of him in performance (#22 vs #108) and Reggie Jackson has Thunder-Karma upside....which means that as much as I might like Durant and Westbrook, my money is on one of them being sidelined again, allowing Reggie to return to fantasy relevance any day now. Good Luck!

    Trade Help-Butler/Covy for Conley/Green

    Are you serious? You click "ACCEPT" just as fast as your stubby little fingers can work! Conley alone gets you more assista than Butler and Covington COMBINED. And Draymond Green is a multi-cat workhouse. Run, don't walk to your mouse right now!!!!!

    NO. I suppose it could be set-up that way though, but I have little faith in getting EVERYONE back, which is the best way to do a keeper.

    Well when you put like that it actually looks like a good deal for you. All right, time to leave my lair and stock up on groceries for the NFL playoffs. Good Luck!

    Jeff Green or Marcus Smart?

    It would be a lot more helpful if you were specific. But I'll assume you are referring to the Green to memphis situation. Look, go ahead and drop Green if you think you're that smart, but Smart has shown NO indications of being Jeff Green even if he gets his old slot in the line-up.

    Trading away Lillard, good returns?

    by Nandan Jan 3, 2015 7:19 PM
    BillyBob BillyBob Jan 10, 2015 2:14 PM Flag

    I come from the school of "You can never have too many point guards" but if you insist on doing deals, I would first check your standings/stats to see where you are weakest and do the deal that addresses that weakness. I happen to LOVE Lillard so you'd have to pry him out of my cold dead hands. Having said that, Cousins is the guy you want. Jefferson has been injured and inconsistent (which is a shame, because he's really good when healthy) Hill is good, but not dominant, Favors and Lopez are good at those slots but Noel and Henson don't really help your frontline (or team) so they're a little misleading when looking at your roster.

    Warning: I personally have the heebie-jeebies when it comes to Lebron's health. LBJ, Westbrook, Durant, while not in the same class of #$%$ as Rose, are very worrisome to me healthwise and would be traded away on ALL of my teams. What you really need to do, if at all possible, is dump Rose or Jefferson off in a deal even if you have to package them with gold like Lillard.

    If the only choices are trade 1 and trade 2 I strongly vote for trade 1 (Cousins). Good Luck!

    Off Constantly and Team #3 were not bad. No way I would take Bomnation because whoever drafted that team diod an awful job. Good Luck though!!

    Do it. Durant's durability is a SERIOUS liability this year.

    Try to get a 'little' bit more, but yeah, I would definitely try to offload Mello. He's an albatross.

    Trade Klay Thompson for Wall?

    Go Dogers!
    You've answered your own question: your team is doing well but need shoring up in Assists. Do the deal. John Wall is a friggin beast anyway. He does not yet have the all-star brand name but we can all see it coming. Dude dishes 10.4 ASP. He is EXACTLY what you need!!

    If it's Jeff Green in Boston, I'm not sure why you're asking the question. Green is like #78 overall on the year and Smart is nowhere.

    Geezus Brandon! You really should check in with me before making these kinds of rash decisions! I sure as hell hope TBOB = Tobias Harris, because otherwise MCW/Tysons's Chicken was WAY more valuable than what you got. I wish you luck, I really do but Rose has only played in 27 out of 37 Bulls games, he trips over shadows and twists his ankle at the slightest suggestion of a defensive player's existence. I'm gonna try to forgive for this, but for the love of Mike (Gay/Favors/Love jokes aside) do not go out and buy Russian equities next week because the media tells you it's a good buy-low opportunity!

    Check with me first!!!

    Rose or MCW?

    by Brandon Jan 9, 2015 9:04 PM
    BillyBob BillyBob Jan 10, 2015 1:18 PM Flag

    MCW is not a bum, although I admit he's a little frustrating to own in fantasy. I would take MCW in a heartbeat and not look back at all. Rose is not only injury-prone, but he clearly takes every opportunity to screw fantasy owners by NOT PLAYING. Look, I don't know about you, but I pay these guys good money to play on my fantasy teams, and I will NOT accept shirking!! MCW at least does what a PG is supposed to do: dish out assists. He's currenlty averaging 7.4 ASP for a top 8 rank in the category. Rose is not even in the top 25!!!? Geez. Finally, if you are the player with Rose, I might still try to market him as the star player that we see in spurts to get as much as possible for him. But that's just tradecraft. Good Luck!
