Kept 4, PG heavy, who's my 1st pick in redraft?

H2H 9 cat league and there is 1 pick before I am up. On ESPN so less positional flexibility than Y!.

I already have:

Joakim Noah, Chi C
Ty Lawson, Den PG
John Wall, Wsh PG
Kyrie Irving, Cle PG

Not too concerned about FG% or TOs and I want to build up a strong team everywhere else. I feel like I have a pretty strong core moving forward but would give a guy who can move into being drafted in the first 3 or 4 rounds next year a little extra value. If I gran a PG only eligible player, I'm probably going to have to avoid, or at least devalue, other PG only eligible players as I would only be able to play 4 PG only players on full game days.

Out of these guys, how would you rank the best 2 options for this team?

Isaiah Thomas, Pho PG
Kobe Bryant, LAL SG
Monta Ellis, Dal SG, PG
Victor Oladipo, Orl SG
Nikola Vucevic, Orl C
Ricky Rubio, Min PG
Ryan Anderson, Nor PF

Thanks, leave a link and for sure WHIR!

    Obviously PTS, STLS and ASTs are dominating. Would advocate going:

    1) Vucevic

    2) Oladipo

    Not really enamored with any choice if Vucevic is off the board as you're really digging yourself a hole. Anderson would have been #2 but I am strongly avoiding him this season.

    Yeah, Vucevic for sure. After that I'd probably go Oladipo too, even though it just balloons your logjam at G. Not a huge issue though, and, like @Redhopeful, I worry about Anderson this year. Ellis is probably third on my list.

    Above all I like Monta Ellis but he does not fill your team’s needs...it will have to be Vucevic or someone like Dereck Favors... B)

    I would have gone Favors

  • Fenris_77Fenris_77 Member, League - Bonanza Keeper League, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 215

    He didn't have Favors though...

    But Favor's was available as an option during the redraft.

    Ahh. I'd probably still go Vucevic over Favors but it's a very close call. What makes me really think hard about Favors there, more than anything else, is the out of position Stl, which makes him a very nice fit for this team if you want to really dominate the category. If I were making the decision I could probably talk myself into Favors, if you know what I mean. :D

    I think Vucevic is the more sure thing but I feel Favors has more upside and still growing. Can't go wrong with either, but like you, I already talk myself into Favors.

    Went Oladipo, as lilstinkylynx knows since he's in this league, was picked right before me. Plus I traded him my pick for the next round so I'm happy getting a young guy who fortifies my strengths and might play his way into being a keeper next year since we keep 4.

    maybe I am undervaluing Favors...that is my takeaway from this. Thanks for commenting.
