    Whats goin on doc? Great to be talking fantasy bball again! Just wanted ur opinion a trade offer I got…my westbrook for his dwight and kyrie irving? I have deron and jarrett jack as my other PGs and my bigs are noah, bogut, d.lee, blatche, kaman, okafor and ty thomas and this league counts double-double and triple-doubles as cats as well but not turnovers…i’m seriously considering pulling the trigger and then trading some of my bigs for guard depth

    I’m rolling the dice that eric gordon has a big yr.

  • thrillah

    KG is a little obvious, I mean he’s been in the league for over 15 years and his numbers dip significantly every year. I still think Eric Gordon is going to blow up. He has no holes offensively and he’ll probably take his frustration out by playing “me-ball.”

    Players I think will regress from last year:
    -Steph Curry
    -Nick Young
    -Amare Stoudamire
    -Lamar Odom
    -Danny Granger

    Hey Doc wondering on your views: Melo for Blake… and also Lebron for Kd

  • http://dimemag.com/author/the-fantasy-doctor/ The Fantasy Doctor

    @big $$: Yep, I’d go for it.

    @thrillah: Agreed with Gordon going “me” on the Hornets, but that could dent his FG%. I also agree on Curry (esp. with his recently re-injured ankle), Odom and STAT.

    @William: I’d go with Gallo, but it would also depend on your matchup and the categories you’re trying to win (assuming you’re in a H2H league).

    @hollywud15: If it’s nine categories, LBJ for KD is a wash — it really depends on the categories you want to boost. Melo for Blake is also a matter of categories. Overall, I’d give the edge to Melo, but if you’re going to punt FT%, it’d be more even.

    @Fantasy Doc — Just had our draft last night. Already I’ve been offered two trades:

    1. Ray Felton (mine) for Ginobili + Calderon (his)

    2. Derrick Williams (mine) for Diaw + Hedo (his)

    Any suggestions?

  • http://dimemag.com/author/the-fantasy-doctor/ The Fantasy Doctor

    @Austin Burton: I really like offer No. 2 for you, assuming this isn’t a keeper league. Diaw should have SF/PF/C flexibility, and I’m not feeling Williams’ chances in that thick frontcourt for the T-Wolves, at least not this season. No. 1 isn’t shabby either — I’d consider it a wash if it were Felton for Manu straight up (Calderon could be in for a timeshare, but he’s nice to stash as a util/bench player). If you think you need the depth and could do with a downgrade at one of your PG spots, I wouldn’t hesitate to pull the trigger. No. 2 has lower risk, higher reward; No. 1 is nice, but more of a wash and a bit riskier (Manu’s health/minutes).

    Sorry for the long answer. I hope this helps!

    @Doc — Thanks. It is a (3) keeper league, and mine from last year were Monta Ellis, Carmelo and Z-Bo. Still think it’s a good deal?

  • http://dimemag.com/author/the-fantasy-doctor/ The Fantasy Doctor

    @Austin Burton: Hm, in that case, both deals lose some appeal. I’d stand pat unless you’re really hurting for depth, in which case No. 1 might be appealing.

  • http://dimemag.com/author/the-fantasy-doctor/ The Fantasy Doctor

    @Jimmy: I’d drop AK for Casspi. Henderson for Rip is nearly a wash. It depends on what you want: more threes and assists (Rip), or more steals and slightly more boards and blocks (Henderson).

    Sup doc?

    I drafted DJ Augustin with my 2nd to the last pick. But now i am feeling that he is in extreme pressure because Kemba Walker is breathing down his neck in terms of playing time. Should i just drop him and pickup a more serviceable player like, Jeff Teague, Tony Allen, Ryan Anderson, Derrick Favors, Trevor Ariza? Should i just pickup teague to replace a PG for a PG? What do you think? Thanks

  • William

    Hey Doc,

    I just read that Ty Lawson sprained his left ankle and is listed as day to day. Should I sit Ty Lawson (5 games) and play Devin Harris (4 games) for week 1? I play 7cat H2H league.

    Thanks,
    Willy

    I’m thinking of dropping Jordan Crawford (G) and/or Amir (F) in my points-based CBS league…here’s some available players:

    - P. George (G)
    - Daye (F)
    - N. Cole (G)
    - AK47 (F)
    - Delfino (F)
    - Budinger (F)
    - Klay (G)
    - Morrow (G)

    Any of those look like a good option for a switch out? Thanks, Doc!
