Early season mistakes 

Post#1 » by Pointgod » Thu Oct 26, 2017 10:07 pm

What early season mistakes have you made so far? Whether it's a poor trade or free agent pickup/drop. Mine was dropping Frank Kaminsky after his first game. I'm not going to count draft misses because hindsight is 20/20

Had Lauri on my waiver wire for a while, but didnt pick him up, because I liked my bench in Donovon Mitchell, Jordan clarkson and MKG...

I was tossing up heavily between DAngelo Russell and Oladipo in the draft. DAR already was a steal for where I got him, and if it was any other player other than Oladipo I was tossing up, I wouldnt been writing this. But Oladipo has gone mental

I could've picked up Markannen and decided on keeping Lance Stephenson instead.

Had a chance on picking up Mitchell and punted too...same with the rookie big on the Hawks that's doing good.

Dropped Rodney Hood the other day...hope it doesn't come back to bite me in the ass.

Dropped Hardaway just a tad too early. Also briefly picked up lamb, only to watch him explode last night. But I mainly dropped him because I read that Batum is gonna be back soon. Thought about picking up Kanter, decided to keep RHJ instead. At the time I thought the Knicks were high on Hermangomez.

On the bright side, I did get Eric Gordon and Jalen Brown on the wire though. So I guess you win some, you lose some.

Bad move averted: before the season started, I offered a guy Draymond for Butler straight up. I didn't have Eric Gordon or Brown yet so was desperate for a guard. He turned it down! Came crawling back the other day saying offer it again and he'll accept. I told him he had his chance to rip me off and blew it

I had Eric Bledsoe on 3rd round and Batum on the 4th for a 18 team league. You know the pain...

Stuck with Players much longer than I should have ( Nerlens and Eric Gordon ) while not selling high on Eric Gordon when he was playing out of his mind.
If U question why Conservatives accept what this DOTARD-in-Chief says and does,the reason is because they willingly turn a blind eye to ALL OF HIS actions as long they get the "piece of their pie" that want.

Believe me I tried doing that. But my league is a bunch of smart marks so nobody was falling for it

Dropped Jamal Murray too early. But man, he was killing my FG% early on.

Dropped THJ in week 2.

BUT, considering that since week 6, hes reached 100 fantasy pts only twice, not really that bad of a drop

Kinda same here, but I picked Ntilikina over Mitchell in a deep keeper league.
