His team does seem to have several risks. Could go south, or could go good if he gets lucky on the health/shape of Griffin/Cousins/J. Parker

You've got the best team in the Premier League IMO on the other hand. Harden @3, CP3 @24, Covington @55, Saric @81 all very nice picks.

Very high risk high reward! As for my favorite team, its got to be Qwigglez (Followed up by TASTIC's).

Teague/Dragic/PatBev
Booker/Redick
Durant/Gordon
Aldridge/Olynyk
Nurcik/WCS/Gortat

I also think that the team that most resembles the kind of teams (Players) that i have put together in the past has to by KJG. When i looked at his picks, i thought, "Those are all guys that i usually target or have used in the past".

Thanks mate, hopefully I'll get my title back after a 1 year break. Jokes aside, let's hope for an injury free season for everyone, have fun everyone.

final result

PG Chris Paul

G Luka Doncic
SF Khris Middleton
PF Anthony Davis
F James Johnson

Util Buddy Hield
Util Andrew Wiggins
BN Bojan Bogdanovic

I didn't need to take huge risks. everyone on this team has a track record of doing what they already do. not sure if we can win it all, but I like what I have.

Was surprised you took Doncic and Jordan on consecutive picks with Ayton on the board. Although I am a fan of both Doncic and Ayton, Ayton is clearly the player I would rate higher for fantasy purposes, because you know what he will provide for sure.

Though Doncic will contribute in multiple stats, and is an underrated rebounder....should give you fairly decent #s across the board without hurting you anywhere.

I took Doncic before Ayton played preseason. That may have been a mistake, although we'll learn a little more tonight.

the upside for Doncic is his passing. that hasn't changed. I needed a little insurance just in case Paul got hurt. considering LD just won Euroleague MVP at age 19, I think he's NBA ready, and will produce right away.

Anyone interested in the H2H league?

It'll be a live draft next Sunday afternoon. I won't be able to make it due to time zone differences. I am the current commish though so I thought I'd gauge interest.

9 cat, live snake draft.

Anyone interested in a salary cap type season long game - this one is quite fun. I came 2nd in the entire comp last year out of like 3000 people across Oz and NZ.

Basically it follows a H2H schedule but players increase/decrease in value depending on how they perform. You can make 3 changes to your squad but only once a week and obviously before rosters are locked. So not sure how the time would work in the US, but Oz and NZ I think it's on a Monday night.

Anyway, I found it quite fun as well as helpful for my other fantasy leagues too. And you can add people to challenge them/track their scores too.

Need some fantasy advise for a league not on real GM. I got offered this trade...

I give: James Harden, Kyle Anderson
I receive: Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal

Initially I want to say yes, this makes my team stronger. However this is a keeper league with 3 keepers. From my team last season I kept Harden, Damian Lillard and Devin Booker.

If I were to do this trade, I would have Durant, Lillard, Booker and Beal to keep from. Would likely let go of Beal.

So this trade makes my team stronger this year but weaker long team (Harden > KD). Is it worth it?

I guess your league doesn't count turnovers? If it does, I'd take the trade. If you care about winning this year, take the trade. Harden isn't that much better...maybe just a tad, and he definitely wouldn't be as good if he wasn't playing for D'Antoni.

KD seems to be injured slightly more. KD is less than a year older.

It's a tough one. I'd probably do it though because it's always worth having a chance to win it all one year even if your team might slightly be worse in the future, but that's no guarantee either. Durant gets quite a few assists and rebounds himself and has better %s. And Beal is WAY better than Anderson.

Is it a money league? I’d do it to win this year if there was enough money on the line. Durant also gets those blocks which is a huge plus.

Turnovers are a category yes. It’s head to head 9 categories (so you can get up to 9 wins any given week).
