well if nate doesnt draft anymore guards or sfs he can play his 4 guys at the 1/2/3 with only a few mins leftover at pf...then he could focus on boards for the rest of the 4/5 mins...but i have a feeling hes not going that way haha
DH, you are correct and likely correct again. I only have about 3 excess mpg right now and can fill 144mpg at the 1-3 positions with a min of 14 usage points, min of 52% combined ast% and min ave D of 62.7, with a max of 16 usage points, ast% just over 73% and D of 79.3. All the time protecting my FTA advantage.
However, if I go all-in with this strategy and want to protect my D then I'm more likely to draft another 3/4 type player that really is a 3. Lots of options now since I have all of the ast%, usage and 3's I REALLY need.
The good news for me now is that I have a short list of guys that I have NEVER seen drafted here that fit what I'm trying to do. I'll likely take a guy in the 5th that generally gets taken here and use a few new guys in the 6th.
I still think the West pick fits, even if I opt out of this strategy and finish with a more standard team. I now have the option to take foul monsters at the 4/5 and still win the FTA battle, and with the 90D of West I not only balance the 40D of Allen but I also can now afford a 50-60D big as well instead of HAVING to add two more 70+ guys.
