    I am about to be 3-4 in a league I usually do very well in. While I am struggling with injuries, like Zion and Bryant, I think my team still needs some sort of direction. I currently have no punts and was wondering what kind of trades you guys would make/what direction my team needs to go in? Thoughts?

    9 CAT H2H

    G: Harden, Holiday, FVV, SGA, Lonzo, Beverley

    F: Zion, Wagner, Bazemore, Bridges

    C: Bam, Bryant, Noel, Baynes

    I like to punt FG and Turnovers myself. SO id look at going after 1 or more of Brook Lopez, Myles Turner, J Isaac & RoCo. Use Zion and any of your bigs and possibly even SGA or Lonzo. Lock down FT% 3’s Steals Blocks Points then stream to compete in boards or assists if you need to.

    Can you copy and paste the team stats info so far? That’s a nice way to see where you should make your move

    Yes, Should have done that originally.

    12 team H2H league…
    FG%: 9/12
    FT%: 9/12 (Absurd with a Harden-led team)
    3PM: 4/12
    REB: 10/12
    AST: 2/12
    STL: 1/12
    BLK: 5/12
    TO: 8/12
    PTS: 5/12

    What would you do Dan?

    It looks like you’re loaded with backcourt players, but currently hurting up front with no Zion for another month or more, no Thom for 3-6+ weeks, Baynes hurting and about to take a minutes hit.

    I have a couple questions:

    Is that Miles Bridges or Mikaal Bridges? If it’s Mikaal, he’s a drop considering your position in the ranks. Using that spot for a streamer would probably be more beneficial. If it’s Miles, keep holding.

    Who is available on the wire? If there’s anyone solid out there, Baynes’s recent injuries and Ayton’s coming return push him into the cut candidate territory. He’s really only had one serviceable game in the last month. Pat Bev might also be a cut candidate depending on who’s available.

    I like the idea of going after a guy like Brook Lopez. He’s boring and not very hot lately, you can probably snag him for good value.

    FVV is also a pretty nice trade chip right now, if you want to turn him into a big. Maybe you can turn SGA into Jonas Valanciunas.

    That FT% makes no sense at all. I know Bam’s been bad, but Harden should be able to handle that.

    I might consider a rebound punt given your ranks, unless you want to see how things change with Zion back and then re-assess?

    I think a rebound punt or a field goal% punt is for sure what I need, thanks for the response guys. What players should I be offloading and what players should I be targeting? Not 100% sure which direction I should go in as well. I’m already pretty much punting TO…

    Also, it’s miles bridges. The wire is pretty dry in a 12 team 14 players per team with IR spots league. Baynes, Zion, and Bryant are all on my IR right now. The rest of my team includes streamers which I did not list.

    Well, Baynes is going to lose his value shortly, so that one we can just sorta forget about. Zion and Bryant, if they come back, obviously help you a ton in the categories you lack.

    The move, should you decide you want to punt, is to use your best rebounders or FG% guys and move them for guys that can LOCK DOWN your good categories and move you out of the middle-pack in things like points, threes, or even blocks

    Which direction would you go in? Also I just got Bledsoe for Lonzo which I am pretty happy about. I also was offered John Collins for Holiday, that would help my rebound and FG% issues, but I think I could get more for Holiday. Thoughts?

    Honestly, I’d wait to see what your team looks like with the injured guys back.

    The other move is to trade Zion to shore up scoring, 3’s… aim for someone in the top-40 range. Doubt you’ll get anything for Bryant while his timeline remains so very nebulous.
