Beal/Ellis for Blake Griffin

Postby Johnny Tuttle » Thu Jan 16, 2014 3:07 pm

In my near dynasty league (keep 11 of 14, no salary cap, no limit on keeping), do I trade my Beal and Monta Ellis for Blake Griffin. The waiver wire is robust: I could get Wroten/McLemore/Brian Roberts/Otto Porter, or so forth as a replacement.

H2H, standard scoring.

My team (10 start, 2 UTIL, 2 Centers; daily lineups):

PG: MCW
SG: Ellis
G: Lawson
SF: Josh Smith
PF: Favours
F: Monroe
C: Drummond
C: Henson
UTIL: Jimmy Butler
UTIL: DJA
Bench: Rose, Horford, Holiday, Beal.

I was positioned to win now until the recent three injuries, forcing me to rotate in only 11 players for my 10 starting slots. I'm concerned which 11 players I'll get to keep, as only DJA is a clear dropper, so this sort of consolidating down to Griffin could be wise.

Thanks for the advice.

Value wise that's a great deal. You're going to be hurting for threes. But otherwise looks good to me

I'm a little disappointed at how many posts I respond to, but I don't get much help myself.

I took this deal.

I dropped Wroten for Eric Bledsoe.
I traded Bledsoe for Beal.
I traded Beal and Ellis for Griffin and a pick upgrade.
I added Wroten.

Simultaneously, I dealt Faried for Jimmy Butler to maintain my SG circumstance.

Did I do OK?
