    12 team h2h cats. Trying to figure out if SloMo will really benefit my team. W/o even punting on stats he finished top 70ish last season. And if you punt pts/3s/FT% finished top 20!
    Wondering if I should drop either Warren or Jaylen for SloMo. Probably also need to drop one or both bc I want to activate BogBog probably by the weekend. Thoughts? Thx!

      If you are punting those categories it would make sense to drop either Warren or Jaylen who mostly provide in those cats. If they are your end of bench guys your not really losing out on much because those guys will likely be on and off waivers throughout the season.

    Darren Collison has been very frustrating specially in H2H where you cant stash the guy. Is he a drop? Here are available PGs in my 14team 9cat:
    Galloway
    Beverly
    Lin
    Smart
    Ntilikina
    Already got Jrue and DWhite

      As frustrating as he is to own he is worth holding in a 14-team league. Frankie smokes is the only other guy I would consider, but the point guard situation in New York is murky and one I am avoiding if I could.

    12 team 9 cat, 10 starters league

    My team right now is

    Ben Simmons
    McCollum
    Lowry
    TJ Warren
    Lebron
    Doncic
    Howard
    Randle
    Marcus Morris
    DSJ

    I have Cousins and James Johnson stashed

    I believe that this team has enough talent, but I really feel it is unbalanced.

    That are some decent guys free(Vonleh, Favors, Indiana Bogdanovic, Tucker, Forbes, Rozier, VanVleet)

    But I was really thinking about trades. Maybe move some assists, like DSJ/Simmons for some ft% and defensive stats like Oladipo/PG/Butler

      I would’t mind the move. You would need to work a a two-for-one if involving DSJ, which is the avenue I love best. I always believe you could find gold on waivers. Maybe look to trade DSJ and Howard for an improvement. It’s hard to eat both Howard and Simmon’s FT%.

    ROS rank vs. highest upside rank?

    I asked this question earlier in the live feed chat but was not able to join for the actual show.

    Thank you!

      ROS: Parker, Reggie, SGA, Collison, Bridges.

      Upside: Parker, SGA, Reggie, Bridges, Collison.

      It really depends on what categories you are looking to improve. Collison is tough to own, but he provides solid steals and modest assists which could be useful.

      Parker has been underperforming all season, but there is always the hope that he begins to take more shot attempts and assert himself in the offense. Though I find it tougher to buy into day by day.
