Nene is busy this week, so I’m filling in for him.
I have 3 NYK players. Felton, Galinari, and Anthony Randolph.
Shall I trade one of them even though I dont get back full value?-planet0111
Absolutely not. The Knicks run one of the most fantasy friendly offenses in the NBA and their roster is as deep as the water level in a kiddie pool. These three players will get plenty of minutes in New York and that will make them fantasy assets. I’m also a believer that it’s never a good idea to trade a player for less than his full value.
I’m looking to trade for J. Wall and his manager wants D. Cousins.
Here is the deal –
I would get – J. Wall, J-Rich, and E. Brand
I would give – J. Johnson, Arenas, and D. Cousins
Do I give up too much or less?-cmj10us
I love John Wall in a dynasty league, but I’d pass on this deal. Joe Johnson is better than Jason Richardson, and Agent Zero is more likely to finish as a top 100 player than Elton Brand. Add in the fact you are dealing away a potential dynasty gem in Cousins, and it becomes too rich for my blood.
Assuming Lebron, Durant, and CP3 are all gone. Is Dirk the automatic 4th pick in a H2H 9-cat league? (14-teamer).-melloyello
Nowitzki is the right choice with the fourth pick this year. He is a model of consistency while Bryant(knee), Wade(hamstring), Granger(propensity for injury), and Curry(inexperience) carry significant question marks heading into this season.
Rondo 6th pick in 10 team H2H?-xsivgz
Rondo is a great fantasy player, but that’s too early to draft him in nine category leagues. According to Basketball Monster, Rondo was the 37th best fantasy player in per game value last season. Even if you eliminate turnovers from the equation, his per game value only jumps to 20th. You would be passing up better value like Deron Williams, Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, and Stephen Curry to draft Rondo. Take him in the second round, and you’ll end up much happier with your team in the long run.
