My man Chef!!!

Thank you for helping me out in the past few Chef Chats! You've helped me turn around my team and I'm starting to move up the standings. But for tonight, I won't bug you too much about this team but my other team.

My other team is top in the league atm. But I'm starting to sputter a little bit. Not winning as convincingly and obviously you'll see why when you see my roster. It's a h2h, 9 cat, 12 team, the 9th cat is not TO but Double-Double.

Satoransky
Josh Hart (Soon to be Taj Gibson if I win the bid on waivers)
Joe Harris
Ariza
Mirotic
Richuan
Marc Gasol
Embiid
Olynyk
Kanter
Rubio
Danny Green
Kemba Walker
Otto (IR)
Kevin Love (IR)

I think my early success was hugely on Embiid and Kemba. I usually lose out on FG% and somewhat mediocre on Assist. and other cats i think im looking great. so i definitely have the more than 5 cats dominant down. but just thinking long term if i need to sell any guys or make roster moves that can prep me for the finals (we are a 24 week league and finish at march 31st) lol sorry if this is a loaded question but just wanted to get some ideas as the season is long and i could have injuries (like embiid or gasol) that can knock me out in a bad way.

hey man, glad your team is picking it up- most of mine are too.

Yeah, Kemba has been off and Embiid's not having all those huge games with Jimmy in town so to be expected.

Overall, for playoffs you want to look up the playoff sched (my column in draft guide) for all your players and see who has light and easy scheds (example Ariza has 4-4-4 but Gasol has 2-3-4). Then do you have a bye week? If so Gasol's 2-game week isn't so bad. If you don't maybe consider some trades for equal value with better schedules.

In terms of cats, are you winning blocks mostly? Aside from that, looks good.

As for the assists , I assume you have Sato for that reason, but in 12-team there are, more than likely, way better options for assists on a nightly basis.

Thanks for the reply Chef!!

good to know bro! i'll look at the guide and see where gasol will be. and i will definitely need to check if there's a bye week.

and yes blocks are looking pretty alright. record is 6-2-1. and yes sato was that guy i picked up. dropped frazier due to his sparse weak. so im feeling pat bev might be a roll of a dice move cause he does have 3 games left

thanks again chef! really appreciate your content and the links to some groove as i figure out my teams!
