  1. Those last few spots on your team, you should be prepared to drop players pretty quickly especially since you are in a ten team league, meaning the waivers should be pretty deep. Go for upside and players that could break out. You know what you will get in MKG and imo he shouldn't be rostered in a ten teamer. Drop him for Jamal.  Jaylen is whatever, he's going to have a ton of competition for not only minutes, but touches. I'd drop him for Prince as well.

    Payton is from 2014 draft and Russel is from 2015 draft, so age isn't an issue here I think.


    Russel is still a project and may or may never reach his potential. and so far doesn't appear to have higher ceiling than payton either.


    Since u have Green and Gobert, Payton seems more fit with a ft-punt team, while Russel will hurt your FG% for sure.

    I'd disagree with the comment that Payton has a higher ceiling than Russell.  Russell was the second overall pick for a big market team that put so much pressure on him early, which is understandable. Before he was traded, he had a few triple doubles and started to look like he was getting confident. Now basically the Nets have just given him the keys to the car, which I think will work wonders.

     Also, we wish his ft would be bettwr obv, but he's only shooting about 2.5 times a game at almost 70%, so its not a huge anchor.

    To be honest you should have stuck to the FT punt strat after getting Gobert. But looks like youre punting both % and TO's. I would drop Monroe or Crabbe for more steals 

    Solid team. Great value all around. I disagree with above, as I think with Harden, why would you ever want to punt ft? Also, Gobert, is not as much of a negative ft anchor that you couldn't overcome it with Harden on your squad. I don't particularly like the thought of having both Jrue and Rondo on my team though.

  4. It's ok. Your bench is pretty weak and the fact that you only have 3 bench players is going to hurt you in HU if you don't have an IR. Like above drop Tristan and maybe waiters and use those two spots for streaming players. If no IR spot, I would try to trade IT asap. You're not getting back fair value for IT especially if you don't have an IR, so I would try to package him with say, Pau, in order to get a better big. Bigs are def your weakness, as you'll struggle with boards, blocks. The lack of a stud big will also hurt you in pts. Since you're in a ten teamer, you should work on 2 for 1 trades as your waiver should have decent options, as mentioned before u only have three on the bench.

    Yeah, I agree with regarding the top 8 being a tier above Jokic. However, for the 9th to 11th picks, from what I'm seeing, it's usually a toss-up between Jokic, LBJ, and Wall. Just curious, why do you chose Jokic over Lebron and Wall?

    Thanks guys. To me, Jokic's upside is huge.  Comparing that to Lebron and Wall, while they are also studs, Jokic still gets me more excited as we haven't seen him at his best. Last year he really only turned it on after about a third of the season was done, and still had sick numbers. 16.7/9.8/5assts, with what will be a steal and a block a game this year. Dude shoots threes, hits 83% with good ft volume, and of course that Fg% is gobertesque (and i repeat, he shoots threes, which makes it more amazing). Those numbers were over 29 min a game last year, and we saw that Malone had no problem giving him 35 min towards the end of the season.
