Not sure how to feel about this. 12 person H2H-9 cat league where the first 2 rounds were keepers from previous years. I drafted in the 10th spot...Ended up punting assists because most elite guards were gone by round 3 and 4 so I took value in bigs...I think?

1. KAT
2. Oladipo
3 (34). Capela
4 (39). Ayton
5 (58). J. Rich
6 (63). Mirotic
7 (82). Buddy Hield
8 (87). Jonathan Isaac
9 (106). Ariza
10 (111). Lamb
11 (130). Bazemore (wanted Dinwiddie but got sniped)...
12 (135). James Johnson
13 (154). Nerlens Noel

Advice on what to do??

12 team, H2H 9 cat

AD
Jimmy
Middleton
Otto
Collins
Dunn
Valanciunas
Ingles
Isaac
Buddy
Lamb
Ariza
Hezonja
Dedmon

Original I had Ayton instead of Middleton, but traded him to improve my ft, pts and 3s. I am puting assists, and the team projects well in my league, but relying a lot in % and To's, looking forward to read your thoughts.

Punting TOs, and very strong FT, Ast, Stls, pts, 3s and FG. Good 6 cat stregth.

Boards are pretty good but not elite. Need blocks.

None of those guys get tons of blocks but you could try Giles. Or really who ever you like. If they suck , you can cut.

I'd try to get a trade going to support Blks/Rebs while protecting FT.

Good job picking up Isaac. I would probably keep Dinwiddie over Marvin and Augustin- you don't want to punt since you have LeBron and Ricky already.

Very strong FG, rebs, steals and blocks but you need at least a 5th to be competitive in.

Next highest is assists so that's where I would go.

Punting FT with highish TOs, below avg points and even worse 3s.

Hey, Chef. This one was difficult, first official 20 teams 9cat h2h draft $$ (only 8 players per team):

PG - Jrue Holiday (16)
SG - D. Booker (25)
SF - T. Prince (56)
PF - Jaren Jackson Jr. (96)
C - J. Valanciunas (65)
UTL - R. Hollis- Jefferson (105)
BN - S. Dinwiddie (136)
BN - K. Olynyk (145)

Very weak (prolly punting) TOs, and weak FG%. All the bigs get snapped before me, tried to fix something later rounds. On what should I focus with - last guys pretty flexible and droppable if needed for hot pick up.

Decent guys on waiver: D. Green, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Hezonnja, Poelt, D. White, W. Matthews, J. Lin, T. Lyles, A. Bradley, G. Hill, S. G-Alexander, Adebayo, Noel, H. Giles, M. Robinson

After steals and blocks, 3s and points are best cats (very good).

Pretty good FT but will lose to elite teams. Rebs also pretty good but maybe could use a boost.

Fg avg, asst and To below avg.

I'm always down for having a spot or 2 to stream. Maybe you can free up an extra spot by doing a 2-for-1 with end of bench guys like Thad, Mario, Portis.

Very strong is steals (slight surplus) and FT. Pretty good FG, 3s, rebs, blocks and TOs.

Assists are low and looks like a soft punt points.

Lots of teams punting asst for same reason.

stacked stl, blks, rebs w/ good 3s and fg.

ft and to avg but could use points, since youre already loaded w. defensive stats, maybe can use Noel's spot to help out w/ pts.

You scooped a lot of 3 n D types at the end so you're overloaded w/ steals. Can use surplus to address needs.

stacked steals very good FT, 3s and blocks.

FG is pretty good but will lose to big-dominant teams. Turnovers and rebs also pretty good, not elite.- maybe grab one more big that's bettr tna Dedmon.

Aside from asts, points your lowest cat.

Anytime Windy, you've been rolling with me since day 1.

Stacked rebs, wit very good FG, FT and despite projections blks and stls cuz I think Isaac will do very well.

TOs also very good.

3s and points are pretty good but not elite and soft asst punt.

Since your Rebs are so stacked and Portis will get numbers to start season, maybe can use his spot to add 3s/pts if you wanna boost those.

Mann, hard to recommend an add since your bench is so restricted and Dinwiddie keeps your assits so high. Maybe pull a 2-for-1 trade but probably will be difficult - again the 8 man roster.

Yup punting TOs and below avg FG.

All the other cats are stacked (pts, asts 3s) or very good (FT, blks, steals, rebs).

I'd concentrate on maintaining those.
