    I just offered Himat RP from Portland. He has been avg about 15 PPG over the last month and a half and shooting over %50. I was going to offer Channing Frye, but then I read JO may not be ready till playoff's, and I believe league is over by then.

    I am currently in 3 leagues. Here is how I handled the J.O situation.

    Black Brook League -

    currently tied for 1st place, 16 owners, Head 2 Head format

    Traded J.O for Ron Artest just prior to J.O's last injury and Ron Artest's trade to Sac-Town. How's that for dodging a bullet? :)

    Yahoo Public League (competitive) -

    currently in 1st place by 7 games, 12 owners, Head 2 Head format

    Kept J.O on the squad to reserve him for playoff run. Had Emaka Okafur on injured list as well. Dropped Okafur and picked up Tyson Chandler. Chandler has responded with a double double in his last 3 games.

    PistonsForum.COM (advanced) -

    currently tied for the last playoff spot, 12 owners, Head 2 Head format

    Dropped J.O. Picked up Melvin Ely who has just returned from injury and starting for the Bobcats in Okafur's absence. Actively looking for trades to offset loss of O'Neal. Placed Duncan on the block with the hope of grabbing two quality players.

    My streak of earning a playoff appearance in every fantasy league I've played in is in jeopardy this year. It will be interesting to see if I can fight to keep my spot in the playoffs.

    What does your team look like sausage king?

    You want to strengthen your best categories. That should help you decide who fits.

    Grab Telfair and drop McCants. I am pretty sure he had knee surgery and isn't expected back this year.

    I found a recent article that says McCants is scheduled to return in early 2007. But it's the same microfracture surgery that Amare had. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for him.

    I think Okafor is healthy.

    CHARLOTTE BOBCATS: Chat Transcript: Forward Emeka Okafor

    I usually look for this stuff (outside of sports or fantasy sites) by searching Google News with the player's name in double quotes.

    "Emeka Okafor"

    Google News

    Hope that helps...

    I'm not a big Barbosa fan but if anything you want to think about cutting Eddie Griffin loose.

    I am in 2 other fantasy leauges and there are a ton of rookies still out there examples

    Stuckey
    Brewer
    Yi
    Noah
    both Wrights
    Thaddeus young
    Cook
    Almond

    My question is how many of you have had succses with adding rookies to your fantasy teams? And if so would you take some of these guys over guys like Mcdyess, Richard Jefferson, Bargnani, Jamal Crawford or Calderon?

    My teams should do pretty good but if I can snag one of these rooks and have them make a impact should I jump on them now or wait ?????????????

    Too many question marks...you really should look at bargs. If you want to roll with rookies, Brewer and Young could be taken ahead of Mcdyess and calderon.

    I had rookie of the year Brandon Roy. He was awesome. I also had Andrea Bargnini, who wasn't bad, but he was inconsistent.

    I also placed somewhere around number 8 or 9 in a 10 person league.

    i had bargnani for a stretch and aldridge after the new year. point being i guess is that i'd rather someone else waste a mid-round pick on a rookie. most rookies become waiver-wire fodder at some point during the season after their owner becomes sick of them anyway.
