Just want to rant about the positions on Yahoo this year. There is a noticeable lack of sg's it seems, at least playable ones. All the ones from the waiver throughout the year has been poop to barely rosterable. While most of the good wings are only sf/pf. Wings that had sg eligible for years past like Jimmy, Kyle Anderson, Middleton, PG are only sf/pf now. Meanwhile Lebron is considered a sg somehow.

They are clueless my friend. Dean Wade has PG, PF, C wtf is that?

? They have given SG to so many PGs there should be a ton of options. Jamal Murray, Jrue Holiday, Dejounte Murray, Lonzo Ball, Terry Rozier, etc etc. 

I have found SF a much harder position to fill. But then maybe our leagues are hoarding different positions.

Yeah it really depends which point guards you drafted. I notice a lot of the pgs this year are given sg eligibility, while a lot of the sg/sf back then are moved to sf/pf. But while that is true the pg's I have does not have sg given to them in Conley and Lowry. Lillard also does not have it. So it seems completely random. All of these players are drafted also and none are available as pickups. While Sf might have a similar problem I did get Kyle Anderson off waiver, and while not the greatest pickups both Finney Smith and Rudy Gay has been rosterable lately. The best sg I could find lately was Diallo which I moved on from since lack of 3's and minutes to Grayson Allen. My only other sg is Tate which seems like a godsend.

So don’t draft old guys because they might rest, but also don’t draft guys on contenders because they might rest, but also don’t draft guys on tanking teams because they might rest, but also don’t draft injury prone guys because they might rest. Draft exclusively young guys on average teams with no injury history.

Fcuk you adam silver

The Raptors are a tricky bunch. I have OG in  two leagues.

One I have a bye week, so I miss that ugly 2 game week coming up. And start with the 5 game slate, perfect right.

But there are 2 B2B’s . So most likely he suits up for three games, best case scenario 4. 

Other league playoffs start Monday, so I cut him already to save my add/drops when it counts.

I’ll stream to maximize games played or scoop up someone with 4 games. 

No way will I keep OG for 2 games in a playoff week. Imagine he sits a game, you’d be royally screwed

Khem Birch, keep an eye out on him if available. He’s trending up & I’d have no hesitation dropping certain Raptors for him if things are going sideways.

Team has been absolutely cursed for the whole season (a recurring theme for me in said league, last year I had Steph and Ayton as my top 2 picks, lol). Looking at my league, however, it's particularly annoying that while I'm second last in my group, I could have been in contention to sneak in the playoffs if I were in the other. So not only have most of my draft picks amounted to a shitstorm equal to a cloud made up of seagulls, I also managed to get drawn along the 3 strongest teams in the league. Love it

Going into the final week of my 10 team league, we have 4 squads (including myself) battling for the top 2 spots and the automatic first round bye.

The other 3 squads play 3 squads that are tanking - while I play the squad that's been rolling over people the last month.

Oh, and I have Harden hurt and OG and Fred in the weird Raps tank mode

Not only has mine team been decimated by injuries, but my opponent ends up benefiting from them. D. Mitchell goes down and Ingles becomes a star.  It is amazing.
