17/18 Punting Guides Part 2: Punt FT%

Fantasy basketball’s most famous punting strategy is making a comeback. Last season was a rough one for this build. Most of the classic big man targets were going extremely early in the draft, making it difficult to pair those big men with elite guards. If you wanted to acquire the services of Hassan Whiteside, DeAndre …

17/18 September Rankings: 51-75

51) Clint Capela (PF/C) – Capela has early-round upside if he’s placed in the right build. He was only a top-45 player in the punt FT% build last season, but provided borderline second-round value if you were punting points as well.

September Rankings: 51-75

51) Goran Dragic (PG/SG) – It’s easy to forget that Dragic is only two years removed from a top-30 finish. Dwyane Wade, and his massive usage, destroyed Dragic’s value, but now that Wade is back home in Chicago, we should see the former Sun return to his top-50 ways. Chris Bosh’s future is still up …
