Have you seen Atlanta?

I think I had the high ranking on you. There are a few looking like they're losing 70+. Your team could be plucky. You have defenders. And nothing to lose.

Why does it matter, you don't own your pick. You should try to mess around with your line up this year and try to figure out what type of ratings the SIM likes to squeeze out wins, considering you have no player that should be lock for an everyday starting role

Could help you out in future years

Perhaps, but almost all of my team won't be around after this year anyways. Only a few guys I am really focusing on, while also trying to be as competitive as possible with the roster I have. I am not going to play guys above others who deserve it more just because I have them under contract longer. I will play the best players.

That actually is even better you could try to pursue players next offseason with ratings that you know that can help you get wins. Might as well see what type of ratings the SIM likes more over others and then try to get players who have those type of ratings next summer to make a run. For instance Thybulle is a 2 star rated player but certain ratings he has leads me to believe he is someone that the SIM likes and is why I started him for most games last yr, same thing with Ariza.

there are a few teams that seem like they are going to outright seek out losses.

Even with that said I think I had you last :lol:

Lol @ someone saying I’m running it back with Swiss team. Run me my respect, I only kept 2 starters and the bench is completely different. I been in these DMs making trades left and right trying to upgrade the roster, and I honestly respect everyone opinion if i took a step forward or backward.

BUT put some respect on my name

Edit:

I'm slow, seems like only players that turned in lists got ranked so 14th is under 14th overall and I'm probably in the 20s. I'll figure it out though. My role players have basically almost all **** the bed in the season so far so relying on Ben/Russ/Warren/LMA to do all the offensive lifting can go wrong very fast depending on the ratings.
