Do you have any ideas on areas I should work on or anything though?

Because this is only my second time playing fantasy, and I'm not sure if I'm doing things well. Because I look at other people's teams and they all look really good too.

Would it help if I posted the other teams?

i would try to get rid of raja bell and Zach Randolph and see if I can get a guy who can block shots and grab a boatload of rebounds

Randolph can give you the poitns but he'll hurt you in TOs and doesn't grab many rebounds

Bell is beyond his prime and he'll probably get off to a quick start this year...but he won't keep it up the entire year

See if you can nab Marcus Camby for these two. I know its ridiculous but its worth a try. Plus Camby's aging and he isn't in Denver anymore so he may not post similar jaw dropping rebounds and blocks stats but can still be a solid 10/10 and 2 blk guy

Yea you really need a big BIG! lol
Someone like Camby or Al Jefferson. It might be hard to get, but you have some good trading pieces.

So I need a big? I'm guessing I'm a little weak on blocks/rebounds from what you guys are saying?

Because I was hoping Elton Brand and David West would do it for me, but seeing I only have Horford and Noah I can see your guyses point.

I sent a Zach Randolph/Leandro Barbosa for Al Jefferson and a Zach Randolph/Raja Bell for Marcus Camby trade to the guys....but I doubt they'll accept those...haha

So are there any other bigs you guys think might be serviceable that I could try and trade for that would really push my team up there? Does Okafor work? Or Bogut? Or someone else? Thanks for all the help so far.

well youre in a 10 team league which means that almost every team will be stacked. my advice is to you is:

1. (8) Elton Brand PF,C
2. (13) Deron Williams PG
3. (28) Caron Butler SF
4. (33) Jason Richardson SG,SF
5. (48) Al Horford PF,C
6. (53) David West PF
7. (68) Mo Williams PG
8. (73) Mike Dunleavy SG,SF
9. (88) Leandro Barbosa PG,SG
10. (93) Zach Randolph PF
11. (108) Francisco Garcia SG,SF
12. (113) Joakim Noah PF,C
13. (128) Beno Udrih PG
14. (133) Travis Outlaw SF,PF
15. (148) Raja Bell SG

definitely get rid of the bolded, i know a lot of people here like mo williams and all but he is on a team with lebron who will handle the ball a majority of the time so how is mo will gonna get his assists as a PG? maybe points but i dont know, also raja bell NEEDS to be dropped, pick up ramon sessions from milwaukee ... he looks like hes still available, i would actually try and trade zach randolph and mo williams for 3's, assists, and blocks .... like for sam dalembert and rafer alston .. it looks like its lopsided but zach get you points, some rebounds, and a lot of TO's ... especially in a d'antoni system, dalembert gets a lot of blocks, rebounds, high FG% and is a better FT% shooting center, i think he shoots like 75%, rafer shoots a lot of 3's and has a decent FT%, and sometimes is a pretter good passer, i would also like to suggest to try and get better FT% shooters cuz the only 85% shooters on your team are Beno Udrih(2 years in a row but not before), david west (last year only), caron butler (your best FT shooter 90+%), and mo williams (lol who i told you to get rid of), you dont have to do the specific moves i told you but something to that affect, im pretty sure you can pull a better move than the one i suggested

What do you think of a J-Rich, Zach Randolph, Francisco Garcia trade for LaMarcus Aldridge, Michael Redd, and Ronnie Brewer?

And really? Mo Williams and Zach Randolph for Dalembert and Alston? I want to get rid of Randolph and Bell for sure, but Alston seems like a downgrade.

I like the trade above, Lamarcus is tight and will only get better since hes not gonna play the center this year so hes better over Zach (UPGRADE) ... maybe spot minutes, Redd is almost the same as JRich for 3's but a better FT% shooter but he's more injury prone lately (Equal) .... Ronnie Brewer is great for steals but he doesn't do much anything else and imo Francisco Garcia is gonna blow up this year with Artest out ... i think hes gonna average high points and hes a good defender ... imma have to go (downgrade) ... all in all i think this is a equal trade but you still need the statas i was saying .... btw regarding that other trade, it was just a suggestion trade with a guy that might trade you .... you have to think where people picked their players, like basically a lot of people are looking at that trade like this .... you are trading your #7 (#68 mo Williams) pick and your #10 (93 Zach Randolph) pick for his #7 (#62 Sam Dalembert) and #11 (#102 Rafer Alston) pick .... which means you're getting the earlier pick and better player because Dalembert is really #62 overall while mo will is #68 overall ... I'm not saying do that trade, it was a suggestion but you have to look at stuff like that before you do random trades, especially since the season hasn't started ... make sure you trade for the stats we suggested though

Alright...I have no idea but..

I just traded

Mo Williams and Zach Randolph for Randy Foye and Nene Hilario.

Seems like a very risky trade but I did it, and I'd like feedback and more advice

Thanks for everything so far :(

trades okay.. maybe could have asked for more. But Nene is a sleeper this year. With Camby gone, Nene could starting who knows. I think Nene could put up similar numbers(well, not like 25 rebounds and 10 blocks), but with a better offensive game.

Yeah..well phife's advice seemed to be to somehow find a way to drop Mo and Zach so I just tried to find something that worked.

I'm scared of Nene getting injured but he's going to be the fulltime starter so I'm hoping he'll be able to put up the numbers, and hopefully be a strong rebound and blocking center that I was lacking.

And Randy Foye is starting too and I'm hoping he has a big year as well.

Both are kinda based on potential...but I'm hoping the trade works out.

Anyone else have any more suggestions on my team's strengths and weaknesse? Thanks for all the help so far!

Hey guys, just had a random trade thought.

Would a

Andrew Bynum + Kevin Martin for David West + Randy Foye trade be worth it?

I know maybe I'm trying to make too many trades, but I'm just bored and a little impatient and just thinking of random things.

Anywho, continued advice on areas I need to improve on, and trades you guys can think of would be appreciated :]
