    Boozer is KILLING my team. My team has fallen off considerably since he was hurt.

    Just because I decided to take it easy on you. (At least when I read the descriptions of the injuries to Davis and O'Neal, it didn't seem to me like they were going to be out all week. Davis was just supposed to have had a little bump on his butt.)

    But Sprockets thrive on adversity. We spotted you two players just to make it competitive, and 4-4-1 is the best you can do!!??!! And you're only up by one steal!! This could easily be 6-3 right now.

    lol. That all Williams team is a good idea, you would have to rank them, and try to draft the best ones first to guarantee you have a monopoly.

    I think a lot of teams are feeling the injury/slump bug. I have had a few players fall way behind their normal output, but then I look at what some of the other teams are dealing with and I realize it's just a rough week. Villanueva really saved me this week...which I never would have expected.

    ok, injuries are there...at least you know they are injuried and won't play. I noticed today that Doc Rivers had enough and DNP-d Perkins...Perkins is in my team...Should I bench him for next week too??????

    There is no good replacement for Perkins, Zach Randolph is still injuried and plays in upcoming week only 2 games anyway....

    On positive note I picked up 2 players, whom I did not expect to be available: Eric Gordon and Mike Dunleavy.

    I picked him up in a local league I play in, after he played well against the Pistons. Dude will be a top 100 player next year.

    This is a good thing for new fantasy guys to learn. Each season, you have to turn up at least one or two value players who emerge as high value starters to make up for injuries and under performance from guys who can't repeat last year's showings.

    It is very hard to win, let alone dominate with a draft day roster. The thing about guys like Lopez, is that you add them to your last spot, and play them only when they show value (and have a lot of opponents in a week). It's my opinion that nearly every team should be shuffling (or sifting through) it's last roster spot each week, panning for gold.

    I don't think I'll ever be able to put T-Mac out of my last roster spot since he is always ailing.:D

    In a weekly league, your non playing guys can be used for roster development, and for being able to maximize your weekly output through games played.

    But I am coming to the conclusion that holding onto injured guys is too expensive.

    I always strive to make the top half of the regular season in each league, and then in the playoffs, maintain or improve my finish. Sure I want to win it all, but that is not always possible. Thus, I try to play at a high level like the Pistons over the last 6 seasons.

    I'm...seriously thinking of dropping TGRH. last year and so on he was true FL dream player: consistent, high FG%, very high FT%, shared ball and rebounded well for SG, hit occasional 3pt shot. Only TOs were little headache.

    But now he has no r comfortable role in this team; yeah, he is natural starting SG but not at the price of AI...

    and even if Rip gets traded, it will take several months to get acclimated in his new team...

    Precisely. Generally, in our leagues Pistons are overvalued anyhow, so even given his current unpopularity with many fans, you should be able to get equal value for him.

    Anyhow, you would be hard pressed to replace him on the free agent market even given his current drop in productivity.

    You dump him and somebody is going to pick him up on waivers faster than you can say "Hey Roscoe, those high heels you are wearing would match Curry's suit perfectly"
