    Yep. He killed it.

    Is there a reason why we only allow 3 transactions per week?

    I keep hoping Kawhi Leonard steps it up. This was supposed to be a big year for him but guys like Ariza and and Jordan Crawford are outplaying him.

    At least I have both the Eastern and Western conference players of the week on my team ;)

    You don't talk to the, ehem, league leader this way, son.

    Unfortunately you might be right. Luol Deng has been out all week and he's been balling. So far its 6-3... I should be able to wind it back to 5-4.

    LOL at the latest trade offer I received. Jameer Nelson, just picked up off the wire was offered to me for the low low price of league leading rebounder DeAndre Jordan.

    Fuck, you had a career week there -I had no answer for you. I was one steal away from 4-5. I'll take the 3 wins and a tie considering I was down 8-1 Friday. Nice work.... and you don't have Davis. You're gonna be a handful in the playoffs.

    Now I have Mikey this week... fuck. I hate it when you're down 3 games on Monday... playing catchup sucks.

    Westbrook... last 5 games is almost averaging a triple double. If he could only stop turning the ball over.

    Faried is turning into a bit of a dud this season. The dude just doesn't seem motivated.

    Tell me about it. Isaiah Thomas has been playing lights out but between him and Brandon Jennings I have been racking up some turnovers

    Westbrook, Harden and Brandon Knight... by themselves they lose me that category every week. And that's not an exaggeration.

    How did you guys know how to draft players for all those fantasy categories?

    I know its a newb question, but now I know why auto-drafting blows. I keep getting killed in my games.

    You can't win across all cats. You have to focus your draft on a few key ones and try and draft guys that can supplement some of the others so you're competitive. For example, I knew by drafting both Harden and Westbrook I might as well forget about turnovers week on week, but they are strong in other areas so on balance it was the right choice. So knowing this, I can draft guys with the weakness of high turnovers since I've abandoned the category.

    The waiver wire should be your friend. I had connectivity issues and was forced in auto-draft as well, and I am currently leading the league. That being said I don't think my team is the strongest team for the balance of the year but I am trying to ride hot players where possible. A guy like Jordan Crawford is a great example; he has been playing at a very high level for Boston over the last 30 days. I expect his productivity to drop once Rondo returns, but for now it is high. On the flip side I dropped Trey Burke because I was uncertain of how long his injury would last and he has been putting up some pretty high numbers.
