draft strategy; draft tomorrow Picking 10th in a 10 team

Postby Hebrew Hammer » Mon Oct 18, 2010 9:13 am

which 4 some do you like better in a H2H league, using standard 9 category???? 10 team league

1
round 1-Granger
round 2-Gasol
round 3-T. Evans
round 4-Bargnani

2
round 1-Gasol
round 2-B. Lopez
round 3-T. Evans
round 4-Westbrook/Collison

3
round 1-Gasol
round 2-Anthony
round 3-T. Evans
round 4-Noah

4
round 1--Deron Williams/Steph Curry
round 2--Gasol
round 3--T. Evans
round 4--Noah

I'm really buying into the hype on Tyreke Evans this year. I have no idea if I will get Curry, Deron Williams or Granger at the turn although i'm fairly confident 1 of them will be there. If they are gone i'm thinking of going double bigs with Gasol and Lopez although i know Carmelo will be there also. I'm trying to be balanced thru the first 4 picks and I feel like the rebound-shot blockers at the turn on round 3/4 are pretty weak. I also like Kevin Love where i have Noah slotted.

Im targeting Stephen Jackson at the turn at 5/6 and my other pick will be based on need but guys I have on my radar are Boozer, Aldridge, Blake Griffin. What do you think? Any notes or comments or thoughts are appreciated

If Granger weren't going to miss the rest of the preseason with a sprained ankle, I'd lean toward Group 1. But assuming you want to avoid torment in 2010, I like Group 2 the most. It's actually a pretty smart play this season. There's a surprising amount of PG talent left after the first five rounds, but with the amount of injuries befalling so many bigs, having a solid stock of them early is a good play.

Also, Stephen Jackson is being overlooked in a ton of leagues this year and there's a good chance he'll still be around in the fifth and possibly sixth round which would round out your first five picks tremendously. On your 5/6 turn, along with Jax, I might consider a three-point shooter instead of another big like Boozer or Griffin.

Good luck!

ok you have me thinking with going Pau and Brook with my picks at the turn..

would you still stick with this strategy if say, Deron Williams were availiable?

Also I REALLY like Andrea Bargnani this year and I think I have to avoid him in round 3/4 if I go with the double bigs.


If I went Gasol/Lopez

I could very well end up with
Evans/Westbrook/Collison in round 3/4

and
S. Jackson/K. Martin/J. Richardson in round 5/6

So after 6 if everything broke right...

g-Evans
g-Westbrook
g-Martin
f-S. Jackson
c-Gasol
c-Lopez

what do you see as my biggest weaknesses in the 9 categories are?

After six rounds that would be a solid team with no outstanding weaknesses. I might target a bargain PG in round 7 because your assists are resting too heavily on Gasol averaging at least four per game and Westbrook averaging at least 7.

Potato-potahto on the two trios. And I'd say if you can grab Blake Griffin with the 60th-ish pick in the draft you should go for it. I'll bet he's gone shortly before then though.
