Roto league with some weird categories: MIN, FG%, FTA, FT%, 3PTM, 3PT%, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK, TO, TECH
My team: Lillard, Rondo, Kemba Walker, Klay Thompson, Josh Smith, Wesley Matthews, Ryan Anderson, Ilyasova, Marc Gasol, Faried, Vucevic, Pekovic, Love
My standings: #1 in minutes (by a long shot), #1 in 3PTM, #1 in rebounds, #2 in assists, #2 in blocks, #2 in steals, #2 in points, #4 in FTA, #4 in 3PT%, #6 in TO, #6 in TECH, and dead last in FG% and FT%.
BUT . . . I'm quite far ahead in games.
Anyway, here's the proposed trade. Tell me what you think (if you're interested in helping):
His Bosh + (Sanders or Glen Davis) for my Faried + (Vucevic or Josh Smith) (2 for 2). OR, he'd trade Bosh/Sanders/Glen Davis for my Faried/Vucevic/Josh Smith.
J Smoove over Vucevic anyday of the week. Value wise it not even close. If you had put in Vucevic then just out of pure value you would have gotten a great deal but sorry to say now its the other way around.
Not sure you read it correctly. I traded faried/josh smith for bosh/sanders. I'm dead last in FT% and FG% and pretty bad in turnovers and techs too. Josh Smith sucks in those categories. Sanders leads the league in blocks and has been grabbing double doubles recently. Bosh has been consistent all season while Josh Smith has been wildly inconsistent.
BTW, Vucevic is balling out if his mind right now. He is ranked much higher than Josh Smith for not only the season, but for the last month, last two weeks and last week. So value-wise, Vucevic is actually much more valuable than Josh Smith. We're halfway through the season ... It's time to stop thinking about upside and actually look at performance throughout the season.
Most people would agree that you would be out of your mind to trade Josh Smith for Vucevic and your pretty much saying Vucevic is better. JSmoove might not be ranked high because of his negative areas but just look at total production. He might not be a big double double guy be he does everything across the board. Thats I mean by pure value.
Even if you are deal last in those area, you still could have gotten much more for him. He`s still a potential top 10 fantasy player and you undersold him.
Anyways I don`t think you got robbed in this trade since you did also acquire Bosh.
Again, I will say you didn't read it correctly. You keep implying that I traded Josh Smith for Vucevic. I did no such thing and you did not read my posts correctly!
I traded Josh Smith/Faried for Bosh/Larry Sanders. A two for two trade.
And I will also say that Josh Smith is the lowest-ranked player on my team (other than my injured players). He's had some good games lately, but he's had an abysmal season overall (fantasy-wise). He's been one of my biggest regrets this year!
Anyway, to back up what I'm saying:
Josh Smith Rankings (for Yahoo) actual season total: 120 actual last 30 days: 121 actual last 14 days: 213 actual last 7 days: 167
average season total: 80 average last 30 days: 122 average last 14 days: 186 average last 7 days: 159
Josh Smith Rankings (from Fantasy Basketball Coaches player rater with my league's settings) season rank: 41 last 30 days: 74 last 14 days: 143 last 7 days: 92
Nikola Vucevic Rankings (for Yahoo) actual season total: 40 actual last 30 days: 22 actual last 14 days: 33 actual last 7 days: 36
average season total: 39 average last 30 days: 15 average last 14 days: 19 average last 7 days: 26
Josh Smith Rankings (from Fantasy Basketball Coaches player rater with my league's settings) season rank: 55 last 30 days: 22 last 14 days: 22 last 7 days: 33
I am not reading your posts wrong. I know you didn`t trade Smith for Vucevic. All I`m saying is that Smith is better than Vucevic. For God`s sake it was an example to make you understand why he is better. Do not rely on those rankings. They tell nothing about production. Sure you will improve in FG% and TO by trading smith but you lose in assists, Blks, Stls, 3s, FTM, etc... You seem to be ignoring the every other stat other than the ones you need. Understand that you will go down in some of the stats that your are 1st, 2nd or whatever on.
