    I just lost a guy in my pay league, so if anybody is interested, let me know. We had to roll over money from last year, so this year it would be an $88 buy in for $109 in payouts. Let me know and send me a message with your email. Draft is Monday night at 9pm

    Both players contribute 10 points to the Pts category. Player A contributes 5-10 to FG% and Player B contributes 5-15 to FG%.

    Going Head to Head, the winner of the Pts category will be the team with more total points that week. The winner of the FG% category will be the team with the highest FG% that week.

    There are 9 total categories, so each team will finish the week with a record like 5-4 or 6-3, or 5-4-1. Those records accumulate during the season for I think 17 weeks. Each player will have a record out of 17 x 9 = 153 "games." So the winner of the league could be someone who finishes with a record of 100-50-3 or something like that.

    The goal is to balance your roster with players who can produce across as many of the 9 categories as possible and can fill every roster spot.

    When is it set to randomize the draft order? Will we get much advanced notice of what draft position we have?

    Not sure when the draft position comes out. The league isnít finalized because we are still waiting for one more person. I donít know you allís names so I donít know who is missing. Iíll open it up tonight if that person doesnít sign up.

    Here are the teams:


    Ph's Spurs Donks
    Greggg Popacapabish
    Medium Baller Brand
    D14
    Googling Fournier
    MyTeamIsAJokic(isle)
    Paint Touches
    The Cody Z Baldspots
    Giannis Aneedtocrapo
    Juice Crew All Stars

    having never played fantasy basketball, I should probably do some pre-draft research but I also probably won't

    I did a mock draft and I was happy it ended before I got into ďwho are these guys?Ē territory.

    Just mock drafted 8th and I did not like how it turned out. There are so many players listed as out right now, you have to be on top of injury updates before you draft.

    Part of the challenge of a 9 category head to head fantasy NBA league is that youíre not going to be good in all 9 categories and the margins may depend on how you use the waiver wire. Do you choose to be decent across the board or be dominant in one or two categories and sacrifice one or two? You may have a plan going in but you pick someone in the first who doesnít fit that plan. Then you have to pick players who match his strengths or make up for his weaknesses.

    I need to change the draft settings to 1 minute between picks.

    It says that order of selection will be determined 30 minutes prior to draft starting, so you get around thirty minutes to come up with a plan based on your draft position, which is fine.

    how much can you really plan beyond your first pick anyways?

    Mock drafts (12 player in this case) give you a general idea of which players are going to be available when, and better prepare you for contingencies. If you are drafting by position, there may be a run on that position before your next pick. Yahoo drafts actually have player queues, so if you familiarize your self with mock drafts, you can fill your queue with multiple players around the order of your picks, and that way you arenít scrambling if the player you planned to pick isnít available when you expect.

    I guess but I still don't see how knowing whether you're picking 3rd or 8th helps beyond the first round, maybe the second

    whatever, I'mma shoot from the hip and win this shit

    12 teams x 15 players = 180 players. 1 minute a piece is a max 3 hour draft. I'm hoping it's no more than 2 hours.

    I think we're all fairly knowledgeable about the NBA, so I don't think we need much more than a minute to draft.
