Yeah, I wanted to gamble a bit more. I also don't like having a ton of the same guys on the same teams. This is also a smaller size league (156 players compared to 224). It makes a difference in stats and health.

The real answer is that Jim is still regretting taking Nowitzki over Wade in the BSOF. }:-) :-D


Maybe a bit, but not really. When I look at my rankings for the BOSF based on my team's strengths I still have a lot of players left to draft that have good value. It seems that it enlarged the player available for me, which I like. :-D

Look at Wade/Maggette ETC sure there are exceptions but I think you have to count on Martin missing at least 10 games a season. Kinda like defensive guys like AK/Wallaca/Gino who always fight and scrap for the ball. You have to count on them missing a few more games than the average player. Anyways Martin was a steal at 30 and tends to be overlooked in many drafts.

This is how I view Martin as well - 10ish FT attempts a game means you're getting fouled a ton. Last time I checked, Martin isn't a built like a brick house so it's not surprising he missed time last season. I agree with RB that his previous injuries shouldn't linger but people should be aware that he's likely to have new ones with all the contact he takes.
