I dont see a winning team here , coming from a daily fantasy player on draftstreet.

If its a 12team league

I see you losing in almost all categories besides maybe rebounding. Nice picks on great fantasy players like JSmoove and Pierce but other than that your team isnt as balance to win in points, assists, freethrow%, steals, 3pm, . I do see you winning in field goal % (maybe) , blocks, rebounds, and turnovers tho. But a winning team needs to have a chance to win at each category.

first round picks are the players that give you everything ala JSmith, Pierce etc... Then after that i focus on categorys. Ibaka can win the blocks category single handedly each week, then after i get someone like that i aim for scoring and the shooting percentages

The players you drafted are good individually, but like someone else said, they don't form a cohesive winning team. You are pretty low on a lot of things like scoring and assists, and high on rebounding and blocks.

Yea I know I really messed up with the center but I thought getting deandre Jordan was good

Paul George and gee is an up and coming small forward for the Cavs, he's actually pretty good and only a Cavs fan would know about him

Your weaknesses are PG, SG, SF, PF and C

You really don't have a single star player. How is that even possible?

How in the hell do you have the #9 pick and not even get a top 20 player? (DEPENDING ON WHERE PEOPLE RANK PIERCE AND SMITH)

Josh Smith was a great pickup.
Pierce is a very good fantasy player also.

As for the rest.... :/ blah

Kyrie Irving is a fine pick - He'll give you top point guard numbers, plenty of room to improve from last year, PLUS the Cavs have an awesome fantasy playoff schedule this year.

Josh Smith is in his contract year so might be motivated to put up better numbers, Joe Johnson is out of his way, and during the Summer he's been working on his low post game and strength, supposedly he's going to shoot less outside shots, so he has a promising season ahead of him.

Batum is probably the 4th best fantasy SG available compliments Josh Smith well in giving you a little bit of everything. He'll be able to give you 1-1-1 for 3's, stls, and blks, and doesn't hurt you anywhere.

Pierce & George are nice SF options. George, Pierce Kyrie along with your top 3 picks will definitely keep you competitive in 3's & stls

deandre jordan - he should have a nice year, improved offensive game, will give you rebounds & Blks (Jordan + Batum + Smith will keep you competitive in blks as long as you have a fourth shot blocker)

thaddeous young - suppose to be having his breakout season by being a starter and getting minutes. He'll get you a double double every night if he indeed gets the minutes and keeps his starting job.

kris humphries - if he can rebound like he did last year then you'll be fine on your rbn's and he gives you a slight boost at blks and stls, but everyone's down on him this season

With the above core you'll have: stls, blks, 3's, rbns, FT's (only person to drag down your FTs is Josh Smith); you're down on asts & pts, your FG% is probably below average to average, and your TO should be average


samuel dalembert - is serviceable as your back up center to help win your blks & rbns, but he's fragile, inconsistent, and gets sporadic playing time, if there are any better centers on the waiver, it's not a bad idea to upgrade.

rodney stuckey - he won't give you the asts & points you need. And doesn't help boost up your 3's and stls either. Trade him if you can.

ramon sessions - timeshare with Kemba, if he can get the minutes he'll be a decent 3rd string PG on your team and will help with your pts & asts.

alonzo gee - he's stuck fighting for minutes with tristan thompson, cj miles, and casspi. You will need a more consistent and reliable scorer in place of him.


Gee, Stuckey, & Dalembert should be the first to go from your team in that order in favor of people who can proving scoring and asts (2 roster spots), and 1 roster spot for a more reliable center.

Josh Smith is a great fantasy player, as is Kyrie.
