Week 11 Fantasy Trade Chart

by | Fantasy Writer
  •  

In this installment of the trade chart, I'd like to offer up some realistic resolutions for the Fantasy owners that have gotten off to a rocky start and are looking to get back on track in 2014. It may be a "new year" and a "new you" and that's why I'm here to help on how you can become a better owner with some trade resolutions.

Always check in with other owners. Your job -- especially if you're down in the dumps -- is to touch bases with every owner in order to see what players are on the block. Other owners have a tendency to have outdated lists of who's on the trading block, so it's always good to touch base with everyone in the league, especially if you have an owner that makes irrational knee-jerk moves.

Trade Fair. This should be self explanatory, and most owners typically abide by this rule. In fact, most leagues have a veto system set up to prevent any lopsided that trades that are not in good spirit. It's never a good thing when you're initial offer is lopsided. You won't go anywhere if you start negotiations like that. Sure, who wouldn't want to flip Roy Hibbert for LaMarcus Aldridge? It's just not realistic, so it's always smart to think long and hard before you make your initial offer, because that usually is the best offer you'll make. And most importantly, never be afraid to trade the underperformers -- even if they we're highly touted before the start of the season. I'm talking to you, Jimmy Butler and/or Ersan Ilyasova owners.

The Andrew Bynum rule. This rule is simple. Never make an offer for a player that does not appear to have any interest in playing basketball, or one that has been spotted at the bowling alley in the midst of his recovery process. Bottom line: sell Bynum while/if you can! And make sure you think twice about trading for any big men with chronic knee issues. It never works out to your favor. Just ask those that drafted Amar'e Stoudemire last season in Fantasy.

The Waiver Wire is your friend. The best way to gain any sort of trade value is to scoop up the players who can provide immediate trade value. These waiver wire options are usually players replacing injured starters, so their values may not last long. However, even if they do have some staying power, it's nearly always a safe bet to sell immediately after a productive stretch of games. You won't go wrong with packaging a waiver wire pickup and an underperformer like O.J. Mayo in a deal.

Keep an eye on the injury report. Another great tool to use that can help you earn an extra edge on your opponents. Always keep an eye on the injury status of your players. The only time I advise you trading for injured players is if you're in a difficult situation with your current roster, or if that injured player is on his way back within a week or so. With that said, you should also keep an eye on waiver wire options that haven't been stashed. It's more general roster advice than specifically trade advice, but it could make the difference before the season is over.

Players who are expected back from injury:

Marc Gasol, C, Grizzlies (could return by early January)
Xavier Henry, G, Lakers (could return by early January)
Devin Harris, G, Mavericks (could return by mid-January)
JJ Redick, G, Clippers (could return by mid-January)
Danilo Gallinari, F, Nuggets (could return by mid-January)
Chris Paul, G, Clippers (could return by late January)
Rajon Rondo, G, Celtics (could return by late January)
Kobe Bryant, G, Lakers (could return by early February)
Steve Nash, G, Lakers (could return by early February)
Russell Westbrook, G, Thunder (could return by mid- February)

Heat add Reggie Williams
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) The Heat signed guard Reggie Williams to a free-agency contract last week, the team announced. Terms of the deal are not known.

Williams appeared in just three games for the Thunder last season, and has played 180 games over parts of five NBA seasons. He averages 8.5 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game, while shooting 46.0 percent from the field and 37.1 percent from three-point range for his career.  


Isaiah Thomas undergoes wrist surgery
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Suns newcomer Isaiah Thomas underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist, the team announced Thursday.

Thomas dealt with a sprained wrist last season but was able to play through it on his way to a career year. An MRI in February revealed no ligament damage, which would indicate this latest procedure is nothing to worry about. The team expects him to be ready for training camp. 


DeMarcus Cousins avoids serious injury at Team USA practice
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Kings center DeMarcus Cousins dodged a bullet Thursday when the MRI on his right knee came back negative.

According to Yahoo Sports, Cousins limped off the court during a Team USA training session after Anthony Davis landed on his knee during a scrimmage. Cousins later tweeted that he was "fine," helping to suppress any concerns of a serious injury. 


Pacers shopping Roy Hibbert, call Pistons about Greg Monroe
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The Pacers are shopping center Roy Hibbert, and they have called the Pistons regarding a potential deal involving restricted free agent Greg Monroe, Detroit Sports 105.1 reports.

There's no word about whether the Pistons would be interested in a Monroe-for-Hibbert spot, but they are pretty well set in the middle with Andre Drummond in the starting lineup. It's a rumor that seemingly has very little chance of coming to fruition.


Rockets sign Kostas Papanikolaou
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The Rockets have signed small forward Kostas Papanikolaou .

Papanikolaou gets $4.8 million guaranteed in the upcoming season, with a team option of $4.6 million for the following season. He has been playing in Europe since being drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft.


Report: Greg Oden faces felony charge
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Free agent Greg Oden is facing a felony charge after allegedly attacking his former girlfriend after a night of drinking, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Oden is accused of punching the woman in the face three times and fracturing a bone in her nose, according to court documents. The felony offense carries a penaly of one-to-six years in prison.


Markel Brown out with broken hand
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Nets guard Markel Brown will be held out of basketball activities for four-to-six weeks after being diagnosed with a nondisplaced fracture of the fourth metacarpal in his right hand, the team announced Monday.

Brown was selected 44th overall in this year's draft, and the Nets acquired him for cash considerations on the night of the draft. He averaged 17.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.9 assists in his senior season at Oklahoma State.


Report: Wolves to swap Anthony Bennett for Thaddeus Young
by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Though the trade can't go official until August 23, the deal reportedly struck between the Cavaliers and Timberwolves will lead to another trade between Minnesota and the 76ers.

The Philadelphia Daily News reported early Friday that Minnesota, upon receiving Anthony Bennett from the Cavs as part of the Kevin Love trade, would then trade him for Thaddeus Young. The Timberwolves have been showing interest in Young since Love stated his desire to be traded.

Meanwhile, the 76ers want to move Young because he's entering his prime at age 26 and only has one additional year left on his contract. Acquiring Bennett would complete a core of young talent to develop over the coming years. Young was one of the most productive forwards in the league last year playing in Brett Brown's up-tempo offense, averaging 17.9 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game. Bennett, on the other hand, failed to make any impact what so ever but did show signs of growth during the Summer League. 


Landing in Minnesota should improve Andrew Wiggins' value
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) The prize of the trade that ultimately sent Kevin Love to Cleveland will likely be the Timberwolves' acquisition of No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins , assuming there are no unexpected changes in the deal the two sides agreed to.

If Wiggins does ultimately land in Minnesota, as expected, this should be a boon to his Fantasy value. Though Wiggins will have substantially less help as he makes the transition to the NBA than he would have in Cleveland, he is also likely to be much more of a featured option than he otherwise might have been.

Wiggins was likely going to be the third or possibly even fourth offensive option for the Cavs, and likely would have been so for some time, given the presence of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving on long-term deals. Now, the Timberwolves get to build around Wiggins as their long-term centerpiece, and he should be given plenty of rope as the team tries to navigate their upcoming rebuild.

Wiggins is raw, but still put up 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds in 32.8 minutes per game as a freshman at the University of Kansas. There are some questions about how well his game will translate to the NBA, but he will at least have some help, in the form of point guard Ricky Rubio, who knows exactly how to set up teammates for shots they like.

Wiggins is mostly upside right now, but should be considered a second-round pick in all keeper-league Fantasy formats. In yearly re-draft leagues, he is more of a mid-round option at this point, albeit one with tremendous upside. 


Anthony Bennett a bit more intriguing following trade
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) After a rookie season that can be charitably described as lost, a change of scenery is probably the best outcome Anthony Bennett could have hoped for this offseason. He got that Thursday, with the news that the long-awaited Kevin Love trade has landed him in Minnesota.

Last year's No. 1 overall pick luckily doesn't have to join the Cavaliers with the pressure of replacing Love as the face of the franchise -- this year's No. 1 pick, Andrew Wiggin, will take that on. Bennett gets to join a Timberwolves team that can give him more consistent playing time than last year's Cavaliers afforded him, but which won't ask him to do more than he is capable.

Bennett might end up starting at power forward for the Wolves, though a bench role seems more likely at this point. He had a disastrous rookie season after entering the season out of shape, but appeared to be in better shape while playing with the Cavaliers during the Summer League in Las Vegas. He still shot the ball poorly in Vegas -- 42.6 percent from the field and just 4 of 16 from three-point range -- but Bennett looked much more capable during his time there.

Based on his rookie season, Bennett has a long way to go before he is contributing at a high level. However, Fantasy owners in deeper category-based leagues should consider taking a chance on the 21-year-old in the later rounds, because he will have the chance to earn a large role if he proves worthy.
