Overall, I think you did a solid job in a deep draft. It's not clear how many players you're starting from your posts but here are my thoughts nonetheless:

- I think you have 2 great centers and an underrated one in Lopez. None of them give up FTs so I like that position for you.

- I would look at the wire for a replacement of buddinger and perhaps Stephenson: Your league is 195 deep so I'm guessing there are some decent options that could work out for you. Look out for how the rotations of Denver, Phoenix, Boston, and Utah work out. Those teams have loss some scoring and some of the benefiting players will be on your wire.

Wish you luck bro!

Thank you for the advice! I forgot to mention it's PG,SG,SF,PF,C,G,F, 3 Util's.

I got rid of Budinger due to injury for Earl Clark, who's pegged to be Cleveland's starter (and I believe has the potential for a 1/1/1 line). Not too many great options left on the waiver..Glen Davis is still up so I may drop Stephenson for him.

Update to this team:

Made a trade- Wade straight up for Batum. I was really lacking wings and did not like Wade's recent injury concerns. I'm looking at moving Deron in a 2-for-1 deal, getting another lesser PG back as well as maybe a big. Looking at punting FG% with the way my team has turned out:

Deron Williams*, Bkn PG
Nicolas Batum, Por SF, SG
Jared Dudley, LAC SF, SG
Ryan Anderson, Nor PF
Nikola Vucevic, Orl C, PF
Jeff Teague, Atl PG
Alec Burks, Uta SG
Eric Bledsoe, Pho PG
Jimmy Butler, Chi SG
Patrick Beverley, Hou PG
Jonas Valanciunas, Tor C
Robin Lopez, Por C
Channing Frye, Pho PF, C

Thinking about trying to flip Deron for Lowry & Favors...am I asking for too much? Or is that a bad trade? WHIR

I actually love that you traded DWayde and got Batum. I think that's a great move. I also think that giving up DWill in the suggested 2 for 1 is a good move. I believe that DWill is overrated, especially with so many quality PG's out there. If the 'lesser' PG could be someone like Lillard, Walker, or Holiday and pick up an improved big (I'm thinking give up Lopez and ask for someone like Favors, or Monroe), that trade would be awesome for you.

I am only NOW seeing you are potentially giving up Dwill for Lowry and Favors. Personally i would do that all day.

What i like about your team as well is the number of 'breakout' candidates. Vucevic, Teague, Bledsoe, Butler, BEverly, and JV are all set up to have fantastic seasons.

Hope you will send a few words of feedback my way! THANKS!

A lot of depth at guard, especially at those swing positions. But you could possible move one or two of them for a solid big.

Great team, love the Batum trade, drafted him in my team.

I also think that you could find better value than Budinger on your waiver wire.

Help me out! :)
