The Official "A eadly Fantasy" League Thread

Thankfuly, the premere NBADraft.net Fantasy NB league doesn't have any DraftExpress punks like last year. After 5 weeks, a relative unknown n the site, Moochiee, has a sizable lead. Commish 8thDeadlySin leads the othr division of the 20-team league and he shars second overal with llperez. Some other notable users are JoeCheck (6th), OhCanada and myself (7th), Cynthia (9th; butshe's kicking the crap out of me this week), Aamir (16th), JamminLemon (18th; ouch), Taylor Condrin (15th), Tyrober (19th) and TallMan (11th).

Some Notable Trades:
Me- recieved Steve Nash and Chase Budinger
PistolPeter-Kevin Love and MArquis Teague

Two dudes I dont know:
Marcus Thornton for Ty Lawsn and Taj Gibson (But it was vetoed!)

Cynthia-recieved Boozer
8th Deadly-recived Conley

Me-recieved David West and JoseCalderon
PistolPeter-Zach Randolph and Will Bynum

Me-recieved Andray Blatche
Tyrober-Kirilenko, Nick Young, and Jeremy Pargp

8thDeadly-recieved Ibaka and Vsely
Tyrober-Valanciunas, Humphries and Ridnour

Dmo leas Poins, Rebounds, FG% and Double-doubles but sits in 5th. Only 8thDeadly also leads more than one category.

Comments, trade ideas? This thread is the place to do it. Good luck to all. Even Aamir.

Ill be moving up this week.

Ill be moving up this week. Im winning 6-3-1 against our commish and should get some double doubles from Cousins and Hickson tonight which will give me a 7-3 lead. But then again Cousins could shoot 3-17 tonight and give him the FG category. I forgot to set my lineup one week that I was on the road for week and got crushed 3-6-1 by DMO Cobras who already has a great team. Trades have not been working out for me I keep getting insane offers so Ive stopped trying and havent made one trade.

Nice post!! I love this

Nice post!! I love this league. There are 4 or 5 people that seem to be inactive but you will have that.

Another notable trade I pulled off is
Mike Conley
For
OJ Mayo

Also, I think that OhCanada is right. He will probably edge me out this week so ill be moving down and he will bump up.

Great league!

Cynthia

So I was usin the trashtalk thing in my matchup with Cynthia and she was like, "im on my 4th beer and 3rd valium, you jelly?" Not so attractive now, is she?

I wanted to say, "Well, I can vote, you jelly?"...

Grandpa you have made a lot

Grandpa you have made a lot moves. I pretty much gave up on assists (traded Nash and Calderon, but recently traded for Conley) to focus on points, rebounds, and double-doubles with Howard, Stoudemire, Love, and Randolph. This is a pretty good league. Most users are active.

And I was offered Mike Conley

And I was offered Mike Conley for Evan Turner a few weeks ago. I'm glad I didn't take it. At the time it seemed very even with Conley being more consistent but since then Evan has been money!!

I was shopping Conley hard

I was shopping Conley hard last week because I have Rubio returning from injury soon. I eventually swapped him for Mayo and I'm very happy with that. I would have loved to have Turner though!

FA's

I have picked up some key FA that have helped out my team quite a bit. I got Maxiell early in the season and he has put up quite a bit of double doubles and gets good playing time while Drummond is developing. Picked up Reggie Evans a couple weeks ago as he boards like a champ and I don't need the points. Also just took a flyer on Lamar Odom, hoping his game is starting to heat up. In the last week he is averaging over 20 minutes a game and has been grabbing around 8 boards a game. If he returns to what he used to be, he could be a huge steal.

My best FA pickup is Kyle

My best FA pickup is Kyle Singler. Very surprised at his production. Draymond Green gets me a few in each category. Other day he had like 3,7,3,3 steals and a block. I'm hoping Javale McGee starts getting more minutes. His per 36 stats are very good.

You've done a pretty good job

You've done a pretty good job Gramps, 7th place with Dirk and Nash having played two games combined this season, you're in position to make a run.

And to 8th Deadly Sin, can you expand the playoffs to 8 teams, I think it's be a lot more fun that way.

16 teams in the playoffs?

16 teams in the playoffs? Wow, that defiantly will be fun, I guess I do have a chance to make a run in the league after all.

I have the ESPN fantasy

I have the ESPN fantasy basketball app on my phone. It has an article on the top PER and usage players that don't get many minutes. Well, my team has the first 3 guys on the PER list. Basically meaning, I have these 3 guys that are absolute studs but just can't get the minutes. Eric Bledsoe, Javale McGee and Tiago Splitter. :/ the only guy that may get more minutes without injury is McGee who shoots himself in the foot too much to count on that.

This is just a FYI because I thought it was weird I had the first 3 guys on the list. Haha

I've been trying to get McGee

I've been trying to get McGee in my league with my friends from school(also 20 teams, but one less roster spot than this league) for more than a month. I initially agreed to a trade, but it got vetoed, and ever since I haven't been able to get one. I kept seeing his big numbers in limited minutes so I got desperate and offered Dragic for him. Still no luck. He's an absolute beast, but when the time comes he's going to be an All-Star center, he's a lot more skilled this season.

Ha, those guys are studs.

Ha, those guys are studs. Well Bledsoe won't play because CP3 is better. McGee won't play because Karl already plays Faried and donsn't want another guy who can't run any play other than "someone throws the ball toward the rim, you run and grab it and dunk it." No one pays you $5 million a year if your playbook reads like that. (McGee is a legit starting center though.) And Splitter has to sit so that Duncan's per game stats don't drop so low that the refs stop giving him favorable calls. So you are kind of messed up there. But that three could easily form the core of a playoff team. Does that help?

Thats a good and a bad thing

Thats a good and a bad thing man.. At least you have hyper productive players on your team.. I have Perkins on my team.. He plays like 30 min a night and gets 5 points and 5 rebounds.. He was a FA pickup though.

Hey 8th, can you please

Hey 8th, can you please either make the playoffs 16 again or cancel my trades. I made trades based on the fact that it was going to be a 16 playoffs, and I'd like to take those trades back since that strategy isn't going to work anymore.

Man you got some fancy trades

Man you got some fancy trades if 1/3 of the way through the season the number of playoff teams makes a difference in your strategy.

Me, I'm just trying to find ten guys who actually end up on the court.

I remember my thought process

I remember my thought process in regards to picking him up in my other 20 team league with friends from school, "It's only one game, Shevd just had a big game too, let's wait one more game". Sure enough he got picked up and Shevd continues to struggle to get minutes and shots, but at least I was able to get my boy Motiejunas.
