Note: All guides are for 9-category, H2H leagues. 

Punt FT%

Over the next two weeks I will be writing a series of team building guides focusing on the various punting strategies available for H2H leagues. I have drafted and won with both balanced teams and teams that are punting at least one category. Both approaches have their merits. A balanced approach allows you to be …

Punt FG%

Yesterday we focused on a punting strategy that upgrades most big men. Today, we look at a strategy that does the opposite and boosts the value of guards; Punt FG%. If your first-round pick is Paul George or Kevin Love this strategy is for you. This strategy will also be effective for those reaching for …

Punt Rebounds

I do not recommend punting rebounds. That’s probably not the best line to start this guide with since I do want you to continue reading, but I can’t in good conscience recommend punting rebounds. Not only is punting rebounds the most difficult punting strategy to pull off, but it also has the least upside of …
