Keepers due tonight - need to eliminate one - help!

Postby TheJordanRulz » Sun Aug 18, 2013 4:34 am

Standard Y! H2H 9 cat 12 team league, keep any 4 players

Keepable players:
Kyrie Irving
Derrick Rose
Rudy Gay
Dwight Howard
Ricky Rubio

Toss up between Rubio and Howard in my mind right now. What do you think? Keepers due in a couple hours. Also, I have the 7th overall pick in the draft.

Thanks!

Despite it hurting you somewhat, I'm not going to strongly consider fit here. My four:

Irving, Rose, Howard and Rubio.

I could care less about Rudy Gay's supposed vision problems. Fact is, he's likely to remain an inefficient player, hoisting up too many jumpers when he should be using his athleticism to get closer to the hoop.

The downside there is that Howard completely ruins the FT value of the other three keepers. I can't argue with the value of the four guys listed, but they aren't a great fit as a group.

My response is too late, but I had the same thought as Red to not keep Gay.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

Agree...Gay's gotta go. Even with the bad fit of Howard, he holds a lot more value in H2H and should easily be traded if you want to protect FT%. You do have a considerable injury risk keeping those three PGs but the upside is tough to give up.
