in a weekly, standard 9catagory, 10 team, ESPN league. (start 1pg,1sg, 1sf, 1pf, 2c, 1g, 1,f, 2u.... starters lock for the week, no daily substitutions) Currenlty have a strong hold on 1st place and starting to think about the playoffs now. I think i made a good trade, but part of me wonders if i gave up too much. Obviously, i made this trade for upside and for the playoffs down the road... if Rose comes back as his typical self, it would make me the odds on favorite to take it all, but there's cerntainly an unknown about anyone coming back from injury. Duncan and Conely were solid starters that i could count on (when healthy). Thoughts?
here's my current starters after the trade:
PG: D. Rose (I have to start B. Knight though until Rose is healthy) SG: J. Harden SF: K. Durrant PF: Carmelo C: Noah (his recent bought of planters scares me though) C: N. Vucevic G: E. Turner F: L. Deng U: D. West U: B. Mullen
Your league must be full of idiots that have never watched a game of bball in their life. There is no way you should of been able to get Harden, Durrant, Melo all on one team. Melo and Durrant are 1st round guys.. Then Harden and possible Noah and Deng are easily 2nd or 3rd round guys. dont get how you got 5 guys that go in the first 3 rounds. If you dont win this league hands down then you need to never play fantasy bball again because its just not your thing. With or WIthout Rose you should not lose.
Well trading Conley and Duncan for Rose is stupid. Have you seen how Rubio looked the first month he came back from the same knee injury? Rose probably won't even play in back to back games until the fantasy season is about over. But yeah, the rest of your team would make up for this stupid trade so it really doesn't matter I guess...
