I got a fantasy basketball question for you all.
I need to pick my keepers for next year, and I can keep up to 3 players at their original draft round. Now, this is a little tricky, because my league is more FF style. It's head to head points, weekly match up, with a certain number of starting spots. So basically, any stat = points. Percentages and all that don't matter.
Also, it's a non-snake draft, and as last year's champion I get the number 7 pick in every round (bottom 6 teams get lotto picks from 1-6, then playoff teams in order of rank). All kinda screwy, I know.
But here are my main keeper options with draft round:
Westbrook - 1st
Carmelo - 2nd
David Lee - 3rd
Monta Ellis - 4th
Luol Deng - 6th
Kemba Walker - 9th
So Melo is pretty much a lock. Walker is by far the best value. I like Lee and Ellis a lot.
The real question is, do I take Westbrook with my #1 pick (7th overall), even though he'll miss the first 4-6 weeks, or do I gamble and hope he's still there in the mid rounds? I've had him for two years now and he's the main reason I've been so successful. Since we can keep players up to 5 years, I'm hesitant to risk losing him.
Which guys would you keep?
