  • I'm in a 10 team h2h non ppr league and we only get to keep 2 keepers for next season. I feel like most of my starting lineup could be considered strong-great keepers, but I'm having trouble narrowing it down to 2...

    QBs: Russell Wilson, Nick Foles
    RBs: Matt Forte, LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Hill, Jonas Gray, Ryan Matthews
    WRs: Demaryius Thomas, Jordan Matthews, Roddy White, Mohamed Sanu, Anquan Boldin
    TEs: Julius Thomas, Cody Parkey
    D: Eagles
    K: Parkey

    My top keepers are: Forte, McCoy, Demaryius Thomas, and Russell Wilson
    The next guys in line are: Jeremy Hill, Jordan Matthews, Travis Kelce, and Julius Thomas

    I finished 5th this past season, so I'll be picking 6th in next seasons draft.

    Help with my keepers!

    Even with Tanaka's injury, you'd keep him over Lester?

  • I'm in need of some opinions on who to keep for next season. We get to keep 4 players. I finished 8th last season, so I'll get the 3rd overall pick in this seasons draft.

    C: Jonathan Lucroy
    1B: Adrian Gonzalez
    2B: Kolten Wong
    3B: Evan Longoria
    SS: Alcides Escobar
    2B/SS: Alexei Ramirez
    1B/3B: Ryan Howard
    OF: Bryce Harper
    OF: Matt Holliday
    OF: Josh Hamilton
    OF: Oscar Taveras
    OF: Dayan Viciedo
    UTIL: Matt Carpenter
    Bench: Evan Gattis
    Bench: Michael Morse
    Bench: Corey Dickerson

    P: Cliff Lee
    P: Stephen Strasburg
    P: Masahiro Tanaka
    P: Jon Lester
    P: Scott Kazmir
    P: Phil Hughes
    P: Cody Allen
    P: Henderson Alvarez
    P: Vance Worley

    I'm leaning towards: Strasburg, Harper, Longoria, and Lester. The guys that are close, are Wong, Dickerson, Tanaka, Allen.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Thanks guys

  • 10 team 8 cat h2h competitive dynasty league.

    I send: Roy Hibbert and Kenneth Faried
    I get: Deandre Jordan

    My team now:
    PG: John Wall, Elfrid Peyton
    PG/SG: Langston Galloway
    SG/SF: Kyle Korver, JJ Redick, Arron Afflalo, Tyreke Evans
    SF/PF: LeBron James
    PF: Kenneth Faried
    PF/C: Andre Drummond, Mason Plumlee
    C: Marc Gasol, Roy Hibbert

    OR any other combo I could send with Hibbert that wouldn't downgrade my 3pt shooting? One of my weaker areas.

    Faried for Howard

    by Brandon Jan 28, 2015 1:29 PM

    If you're in need of blocks, then I'd say Howard is the safer bet for blocks. Although, I'm not really seeing the upside from Howard. At least nothing compared to the upside that Faried has.

    Lebron for Wall or Griffin? Keeper League

    by xGreatness Jan 27, 2015 5:44 PM
    John John Jan 27, 2015 5:49 PM Flag

    I'm in a bit of a delima with LeBron as well. Except I own him. I'm afraid the Cavs will decide to give LeBron more rest down the stretch which would hurt teams like you who seem to be in the playoff picture. Wall still hasn't completely hit his ceiling. I'd keep Wall

    Oh ya. I decided to punt FTs right after the draft. I'd have to trade Drummond, LeBron, Plumlee, Evans, Faried, Peyton just to even attempt to improve my FT%. My thinking was, if I did this trade, I'd try and trade Drummond for someone like Oladipo, Bledsoe, Knight, or Wesley Matthews. I'd like to get an above average to elite 3pt shooter out of Drummond.

    Teague Trade

    by Brandon Jan 27, 2015 4:19 PM
    John John Jan 27, 2015 5:11 PM Flag

    Teague has been phenomenal this season and I'd rather have Faried than Howard this season. Faried has more upside and Howard's missed time due to injury and has put up some duds. As a Nuggets fan, I'd love to have Lawson, but I'd rather have the Teague/Faried side in this situation.

  • I'm currently ranked 5th (top 4 make playoffs) in a 10 team 8 cat h2h dynasty league. I'm not too confident that my team will be good enough to win in the playoffs (if I get in) and not bad enough to get a good draft spot next season.

    I send: LeBron James and Arron Afflalo
    I get: DeMarcus Cousins and Monta Ellis

    My current team:
    PG: John Wall, Elfrid Peyton
    SG/SF: Kyle Korver, Tyreke Evans, JJ Redick, Arron Afflalo, Nick Young
    SF/PF: LeBron James
    PF: Kenneth Faried
    PF/C: Mason Plumlee, Andre Drummond
    C: Marc Gasol, Roy Hibbert

    Possible keepers for next season (we keep 2): Wall, LeBron, Gasol, Drummond, Faried

    My team after trade:
    PG: John Wall, Elfrid Peyton
    PG/SG: Monta Ellis
    SG/SF: Kyle Korver, Tyreke Evans, JJ Redick, Nick Young
    PF: Kenneth Faried
    PF/C: DeMarcus Cousins, Andre Drummond, Mason Plumlee
    C: Marc Gasol, Roy Hibbert

    Possible keepers for next season: Wall, Cousins, Gasol, Drummond, Faried

  • 10 team 8 cat h2h dynasty league

    I send: Andre Drummond and Arron Afflalo
    I get: Klay Thompson

    My team:
    PG: John Wall, Elfrid Payton
    SG/SF: Kyle Korver, Tyreke Evans, Arron Afflalo, JJ Redick
    SF/PF: LeBron James
    PF: Kenneth Faried, Donatas Motiejunas
    PF/C: Mason Plumlee, Andre Drummond
    C: Marc Gasol, Roy Hibbert

    Currently sitting in 5th place (top 4 make playoffs). I almost always win the rebound cat, and have troubles in 3's and scoring. I think I could easily find a FA that would "lessen the hit" in rebounds.

  • Hey guys. I'm currently in year 2 of a 10 team 8 cat h2h dynasty league. I'm in need of another PG who shoots 3's and picks up steals (my 2 biggest weaknesses besides FT%)

    Would any of these trades be smart moves? (Not giving too much)
    Trade 1:
    I send: Kenneth Faried and Arron Afflalo or Redick
    I get: Mike Conley

    Trade 2:
    I send: Andre Drummond and Arron Afflalo or Redick
    I get: Kyle Lowry

    Here's my team:
    PG: John Wall
    SG: Tyreke Evans
    SF: LeBron James
    PF: Andre Drummond
    C: Marc Gasol
    G: Kyle Korver
    F: Mason Plumlee
    UTL: JJ Redick
    UTL: Kenneth Faried
    UTL: Elfrid Payton
    BENCH: Arron Afflalo
    BENCH: Roy Hibbert
    BENCH: Donatas Motiejunas

    I'm sitting in 6th place and really have no idea what to do. The guy in fourth place has a record of 50-38-0 while my record is 44-42-2, so I'm very much still in the playoff schedule.

    Dynasty league help. 10 team Standard scoring

    by John Jan 5, 2015 5:58 PM

    That's what I'm thinking. I do have the 6th overall pick, so I think if I kept both my RBs, I could draft an elite WR with my 1st (3rd rd) pick. If only our league had 4 keepers...lol

  • 8 cat 10 team dynasty league.

    PG: John Wall
    SG: Manu Ginobli
    SG/SF: Tyreke Evans, Kyle Korver, Aaron Afflalo, Corey Brewer
    SF/PF: LeBron James
    PF: Kenneth Faried, Taj Gibson
    PF/C: Andre Drummond, Mason Plumlee
    C: Marc Gasol, Roy Hibbert

    The other guy is in need of STLs, ASTs, and REBs.

  • Hey everyone. I'm currently in a 10 team NON PPR dynasty league and I'm a little puzzled as to who I should keep. We only get to keep 2 unfortunately. Here's my team:

    QB: Russell Wilson, Nick Foles (IR), Mark Sanchez
    RB: LeSean McCoy, Matt Forte, Jeremy Hill, Ryan Matthews, Jonas Gray
    WR: Demaryius Thomas, Roddy White, Jordan Matthews, Anquan Boldin, Mohamed Sanu
    TE: Julius Thomas, Travis Kelce
    D: Eagles
    K: Cody Parkey

    BTW, I'll have the 6th overall pick in next seasons draft. Leaning towards keeping McCoy and Forte

  • 10 team 8 cat h2h league (we get to keep 2 players at the end of each season)

    I send: LeBron, Kenneth Faried, Lance Stephenson, Roy Hibbert

    C: Marc Gasol

    F: Nikola Mirotic

    UTL: Kenneth Faried
    UTL: Kyle Korver

    BENCH: Roy Hibbert
