Teague and Love for Jrue? Am I crazy? 

Post#1 » by nzahir » Thu Oct 18, 2018 9:08 am

I'm in a H2H league 9 cat 1 point for win, 8 teams.
My team is middle of the pack and pretty bad for assists. Considering tanking those categories. Should I move Love and Teague (and hield, but Fournier is available, so I won't even count Buddy) for Jrue? Jrue is good but his injury problems are a bit concerning and Teague is pretty underrated. I am mostly making this move for steals, blocks, and a small uptick in efficiency. But Teague himself gets a decent amount of steals.

Do I make the move? Would replace Love with Collins and dominate in blocks(AD and Allen on the nets are my main Shot Blockers)

Nope, definite overpay.

How do you replace Love with Collins, surely he's not on waivers?

Collins was dropped the other day, friend needed non injured guys I guess. This is my team. Thinking of semi punting assists and boards. Or what do you think?

1. (2) Anthony Davis PF,C
2. (15) Kawhi Leonard SG,SF
3. (18) Paul George SG,SF
4. (31) Kevin Love PF,C
5. (34) Kyle Lowry PG
6. (47) Gary Harris SG,SF
7. (50) Jamal Murray PG,SG
8. (63) Jarrett Allen PF,C
9. (66) Jeff Teague PG
10. (79) Buddy Hield SG
11. (82) Enes Kanter C
12. (95) Josh Richardson PG,SG
13. (98) Brook Lopez

Tanking assists makes some sense - but you've got enough players to compete there - Kawhi, PG13 etc are all above average for their position for AST, plus you've got Lowry, Teague and Murray who combine for 16ish per game. I never tank in H2H but that's mainly because I can't switch my roto brain off.

I'd drop BroLo for Collins without hesitation. He's going to have a solid year (Lopez), but his upside is probably 12-5 with 1.5blk and 1.5x3pt. Collins will crush that. And if he's on the IL you just put him there and stream in his spot

Didn't know you can stash injured guys until today. Why wouldn't I pick up KP then as well? Or should I?

Picked up Collins, waiting for waivers

Lowry and Teague are top 10 in assists, so maybe I do throw it. Not sure honestly if I should let things play out for a few weeks or what. Scared some of these FA guys get taken(forunier is left, someone took lavert b/c I waited too long)
