Just had my first draft tonight. Would really appreciate some feedback on what my strengths and weaknesses will probably be and whether there's anyone I should pick up or drop. It's 10 teams, 9 categories (ESPN standard with TOs). Thanks!

PG - Chris Paul
SG - OJ Mayo
SF - Paul Pierce
PF - Chris Bosh
C - Al Jefferson
G - Mike Conley
G - Jeff Teague
F - Danny Green
F - Gerald Wallace
C - Nikola Pekovic
Util - Demar Derozan
Util - Kyle Korver
BN - John Henson
BN - Chris Kaman
BN - Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Some potentially interesting players on waivers:
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
Alec Burks
Robin Lopez
Kelly Olynyk
Nene
Ramon Sessions
Corey Brewer
Andrea Bargnani
Randy Foye

I should probably add Jeremy Lamb to the list of interesting players available on waivers...

I think I'd get KCP for Korver. I've never been a big Korver guy and KCP has some good upside and will hit 3s as well.

Should I pay much attention to ESPN's player rater? They have Korver at #39 overall last season but I have no idea what formula they use... For what it's worth, R. Lopez at #51 and Sefolosha at #56 are the highest ranked available players that don't seem to be in danger of any serious regression...

Your league must have different settings or something that the Player Rater algorithm can account for because I see Korver at 61. Still, that surprises me, and I think it overrates 3s especially if you can make daily moves. I see Lopez at 59 and Thabo at 82, the Lopez one really shocks me. Lopez played all 82, Thabo 81 and Korver 74 games last year, so that probably weighs in heavily in the yearly formula.

That's weird. I think the only difference in the scoring settings is that we include turnovers... There's also a difference in the roster settings - it's PG, SG, 2G, SF, PF, 2F, 2C, 2Util, but I wouldn't think that would make a big difference. Either way, I get the point about 3-pt specialists, thanks for the advice!
