how many teams in your league? you seem to be stacked with reboudnign.. i would maybe trade one of your bigs taht don't get a lot of steals for someone with high 3s and /or steals... take a look at the league leaders in those categories and begin shopping one of your bigs..

You don't have a single top round value player.....barely a top 15 player either. Rough man.

With Al Horford gone with a shoulder injury, who should I get from the waiver wire? I'll list the most notable ones. I will obviously lose some of the fg%, Rebs, pts, 0.9 steals and 2 blocks a game. And how can I improve my team? I'm currently punting FTs. 10 M h2H 9cats
PG: Lawson, Dragic, Lin
SG: Iggy, K Mart
SF: PG24, Parsons, The Truth
PF: Cousins, J Smoove, Al horford (need to drop)
C: M gasol, D Jordan

Notable waiver wires: robin Lopez, miles plumlee, frye, nene, bargnani, Vasquez, t jones, Wilson chandler, jimmy butler, Shawn Marion, Bradley, wroten

Thanks.

Nate Robinson looks to pick up some slack with Wilson Chandler straining his groin and Andre Miller on his way out of Denver.

Hey guys, after doing really bad in fantasy for years I finally have a good team. I feel like my team has the most firepower in a vacuum I am not sure if it's maximizing output in terms of being well rounded, or the lower level players. Tell me what you think

Chris Paul/Damian Lillard/George Hill/Mario Chalmers
Gordon Hayward/Courtney Lee
Paul George/Trevor Ariza/Kawhi Leonard
Patrick Patterson
Joakim Noah/Derrick Favors/Robin Lopez

Some waiver wire guys available: Marvin Williams, Patty Mills, Josh McRoberts, DJ Augustin, Patrick Beverly, Khris Middleton, Danny Green, Tristan Thompson, John Henson. I like the idea of Marvin but I got stuck bc I wanted a C-able pickup in Patterson. McRoberts can play C but I think I need rebounding more than a C's who's main value is assists. Is it worth it to pick up a guy like Thompson or Henson even if their overall rank (last 30 days for henson) is not that high considering the above team?

2. ORTG/DRTG ranks are connected in back and forth play and energy expenditure
3. RAPM/RPM is proven measuring regular season value, but not postseason

Real nice team but I'd switch a few guys. Henson is your number 1 add. He was a top 45 play when Sanders was hurt earlier in the year and will help fix your rebounding problem. I'd drop Pat Pat since he's at best a top 120 guy when Amir is healthy.

I'd switch Chalmers for Augustin as well. Augustin just has much more upside and has been playing much better. That one is easy for me.

I'd also pickup Beverley and drop Lee. The Griz's rotation is going to awfully crowded once Allen comes back. Beverley doesn't post traditional PG lines but the 1.6 3PG and 1.4 SPG and low TOs are useful. He's actually been a top 50 play over the last month despite not shooting well because he's been putting up 2.1 3PG and 1.6 SPG. Beverley is underrated in fantasy due to PPG bias.

I didn't realize Sanders was out again, yea then I love getting Henson (I had him before when Sanders was out the first time actually)

Thanks for the post!
