I’m trying to figure out how I drafted Mitchell Robinson in round 3, haha....Did yahoo have him ranked way too high? I wanted Sabonis, but someone snagged him right before me.
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Yeah, his rankings were always ridiculous. He's a middle round player at best and it's only because he can pretty reliably get some blocks.

Weren't you at the draft?

Ya I was there. I was looking for a C to get Reb/Blk/FG%. Sabonis is who I was hoping would drop to me..or I think Drummond? I think Sabonis went the pick before me and I had to switch up plans quick. I think Robinson was yahoo’s next highest ranked C, I had to make back to back picks and just took him without thinking about it much.

Everybody I picked on my team this year I can probably beat in a game of 21 it appears...:/

My team is either all injured or too much of a wuss to play in back to backs, so I'll never have a full squad and be near the bottom of the standings.

My team has also been a disaster. I thought having KD at such a low round would allow me to take some risks, but it turns out I took way too many.

Harden at pick #1 can still work out, but he's probably not going to be way ahead of everyone else like last season.

KD already had COVID and now he's out for 4 games due to quarantine stuff. Who knows what'll come of that.

I already said last week that pre-season Zion catfished me.

Ayton has done better the last two games, but he's going to be up and down a lot. I'm expecting an annoying amount of 8/9/2 games without any defensive stats or FTA.

Fultz and Reddish were guys I was hoping would take a leap, and they have, but it only happens once every four games.

Bagley is a bum, but Richaun is good. Kind of a wash there. Just wish I didn't take the chance on Bagley.

Schroder and Bledsoe are fine. Pretty much what I expected.

I'm hopeful that KP will be good when he comes back. And that's probably the dumbest thing to be hopeful about in fantasy basketball.

I'm screwed.

Respectfully, can I just confirm who the managers and team names are? Been getting trade offers and it's great because I like trades, even though so far I haven't managed to work anything out with anyone, but I would like to find out who is who... There are a couple of team names that are confusing the hell out of me.

I think Maldo's team has been moved to someone else?

1. Flagrant Fowl - Flagrant Fowl
2. pickle - Platypus Beaks
3. bajanguy008 - Team Island Vybez
4. Shabazz - Shabazz
5. Gladiator - Andrew Gaze All-Stars
6. BigLewy - Huskies
7. bIGDRAWLS0072 - Dolemite
8. Superbone - Superbone's Suns
9. Maldonado - Maldo
10. ShelC - Project Mayhem
11. BookTheGoat - BookTheGoat
12. SplitT - SplitT

Yes, Maldo is now Murd56. I got him as a replacement and he's registered here, but I don't think he's ever posted.

PSA for All: Don't trust Yahoo to set your starters with the "Start Active Players" function.

I did and discovered that it put an injured Alec Burks in a starting utility position and Atyon on the bench. Of course, I didn't realize it until after the Suns game started.

I didn't even know there was a Start Active Players function.

It's the big blue button that says 'Start Active Players' right above your roster.

Yeah, we're all in the same boat to some extent here. I nearly lost 0-8 last week.

Seems like the fairest thing for everyone is to just endure whatever happens.

Agreed. It's going to be a complete crap shoot that you can't plan for, either as a manager or league/commissioner, so it's fairest to just roll with it. The season will have a bit of an asterisk to it ..... unless my team happens to fluke a win of course :lol:

Yup, this season is outrageous. I have 5 guys or so out with long term injuries, the rest of my team has games canceled due to contract tracing...nothing you can do. I just hit set lineup for the week and let it ride because it's all I can do. Could line me up for a nice high pick next year though.

I used this for the first time. It mostly works. You do still have to go through each day and make some modifications as needed. It does speed up the process.
