Next year, I wouldn't include Total Points (PTS).

I find that it is redundant with FGM, FTM, 3PTM (essentially it is just a summary of those three stats).

I vote to exclude it for next year. It might keep the managers a little closer. After two weeks, someone is already 14.5 games back (but the bottom two teams do look to be closing that gap).

We'll see what happens as the season progresses but I'm going to keep an eye on it.

Somebody stop me from picking up all of these Raptor players.

Now I've got four five centres and 3 Raptor players. Anybody want to offer me something of high value for PF/C Chris Bosh? I'd probably be most interested in a PG.

What you got in mind?

I should be careful about using hockey logic on basketball. I wouldn't want to have 3 players from the Phoenix Coyotes on my hockey team because they'll probably lose might nights and get shut out a fair bit.

In basketball, however, the losing team still tends to get 85 points. It might now be a bad thing to have some of your lower guys (Fred Jones, Jorge Garbajosa) playing on a poor team. At least they get the minutes that they wouldn't get on a strong team. It may not matter that they lose more then they win.

I guess I should just stay put for now and see how the season goes. I've already made some decisions that I probably shouldn't have.

Why aren't any of my bench players accumulating points on a weekly basis? When I look at the matchup, the players who started the week on the bench don't have any stats to their names.

It won't actually show any stats till a player has played for at least 1 day.

Well we are 6 days into the matchup for this week, and all the players who started the week in the BN position have no stats to their names, where as those who didn't have all of their stats.

Were they injured?

My players who start the week benched acquire points later in the week (after I activate them).

Edit:

Y'know, I think there might have been a stat bug that was corrected. I was having a terrible week (losing 10-2) and then last night I jumped to winning (9-3). Essentially, I gained the lead in seven categories overnight. Perhaps some of my guys (who used to be benched) were not collecting stats as they should have been.

As I say, it does appear to be corrected now.

I didn't really notice the problem. I just thought my guys sucked this week.

Last week the scores did some serious flip-flopping. I was down 10-2 on Saturday (based on Friday night) then I was up 9-3 on Sunday and then I lost 9-3 by Monday morning.

Let's just say that I'm glad the money isn't involved or I wouldn't be able to handle the stress. :D

I don't think Jonny's Jolts updated his lineup at all last week. His two best guys (Steve Nash and Chauncey Billups) were benched. He still got four points though.

I took a gamble and picked up Rashard Lewis.

As far as I see it, if I manage to end up in the top 6 (I need Paul Pierce and Chris Bosh back to have a chance at that) then having Rashard Lewis for the playoffs would be good (assuming again, that he heals quickly).

Essentially the move gives me a chance to win it all or fail miserably.

Yeah, my next few weeks were going to suck any which way that I played it.

I'm currently 10-0 for the week with my top 2 guys still out (Pierce, Lewis). JR and Bosh are back and they've both been hot. Brandon Roy is finally healthy and playing well too.

I'm going to have 3 less guys playing tonight and most of my leads are minimal so by tomorrow it could look completely different. For now, however, I'll enjoy being 10-0.

Boris Diaw has been an albatross since the draft. What a waste of a 2nd pick! :blush: I probably should have dumped him a long time ago but I can't bring myself to do it.

I just woke up and it is now 6-6. Where is the justice!

We both have 13 active player appearances over the next two nights so it might come down to the wire.

The basketball fantasy stuff sure can flip-flop (although, a lot of my previous leads were by a thread).

Rashard Lewis may be back on Saturday but Paul Pierce continues to have setbacks. He was about to return from his knee injury when his elbow got infected (or something). Grrr....

We need an Injury Reserve spot. It is very frustrating having Paul Pierce out for half the season. Yes, in retrospect I should have dropped him but he isn't a player you can drop lightly.
