17/18 Busts/Overvalued Players

Avoiding players who bust, especially early in the draft, can be just as important as finding that late-round sleeper who vastly outperforms their draft position. Luckily, most non-injury related busts are somewhat easy to spot. The same group of players are overrated year-after-year and this season is no different. I might as well rename this …

2016-2017 Busts/Overvalued Players

Avoiding players who bust, especially early in the draft, can be just as important as finding that late-round sleeper who vastly outperforms their draft position. Luckily, most non-injury related busts are somewhat easy to spot. The same group of players are overrated year after year and this year is no different. How many times does …

Preseason Podcast

Only three more sleeps until basketball! I decided to switch things up and publish my first ever podcast. It seems to be what the cool kids are doing and I wanted to discuss my punting strategies in more detail. This podcast does mostly focus on punting, but I also talk about what to do if you’re …

October Rankings Update

The regular season is just over a week away and most players’ outlooks are much clearer than they were a month ago.

Yahoo’s rankings are much better than they were 24 hours ago but there’s still quite a few glaring issues. You’ll notice that this list …

Week 5 Buy-low Candidates

What you do want to do is try to take advantage of those less than stellar fantasy players. Below is a list of underachieving players that I believe …

Yahoo Ranking Update Analysis

Yahoo updated their rankings for the first time in over a month this week. These rankings are significantly better than they used to be but that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to find value now. We just need to look a little harder. I know many of you have drafts coming up this weekend so I …

Overrated Players

Avoiding picking a bust in the early rounds is at least as important as choosing players who will provide value even at a lofty draft position. Having your first-round pick provide third-round value puts you at a huge disadvantage. Good luck competing with the Durant and LeBron owners without your first-round pick providing first-round value. …

Rankings Update

With the regular season less than a week away and preseason wrapping up, it’s time for a rankings update. My original rankings were published at the beginning of October and I want to address some of what we’ve seen in preseason. Outside of Westbrook, there hasn’t been any major injuries to any studs, so most …
