The risks for 2012
Do you have an expert level player in your fantasy league? I do. He's a good guy and a great owner -- lots of trades, brings new people into the league, and a genuine friend -- but man alive, he wins too damn much. And in this year's NBA fantasy draft, he started with blue-chip keepers for two-thirds of his line up, and all of them were well below market-level prices. I could have every pic work out and still not beat him team in 2012. He's a monster.
So much so that, when it came to drafting my own team, I did something I've never really done in a league before. I didn't really play for 2012. The Monster is winning that. Instead, I'm trying to give him more of a run for his money in 2013.
And with that, here's the line-up; asterisk players were keepers.
PG Stephen Curry GST 46 51
SG Dwayne Wade * MIA 55 60
G Derrick Rose CHI 17 21
SF Jared Dudley PHX 1 4
PF Al Jefferson * UTA
