17/18 Punting Guides Part 6: Punt Threes

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or have only watched Timberwolves games lately, you’ve probably noticed that the league is now in love with the three-ball. As it should be. It’s simple math. Three is greater than two and the attempts are only going to go up from here. The league’s increased attention to …

17/18 September Rankings: 126-150

126) Patty Mills (PG) – The Australian has always been a very intriguing player. He has always posted very good per minute numbers, but hasn’t taken off like his per minutes numbers would suggest when given extended run. With Tony Parker out at least another four months, Mills will have his best opportunity yet to establish …

Buy Low/Sell High Targets and a Preview of Week 5

The hallmark of a poor fantasy owner is impatience. Too often managers overreact to slow starts and sell underachieving players low. Don’t be one of those managers. In fact, do the opposite. Trading for underachieving early-round picks can win you your league. When deciding which players to target, looking at their per minute numbers is …

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 …

September Rankings: 126-150

126) Darren Collison (PG) – Collison would be a top-75 pick if he wasn’t looking at a lengthy suspension to start the year. The point guard pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge over the summer and is about to have the league come down on him hard. The NBA hasn’t had a major …

Free-Agent Roundup – Atlantic Division

Boston Celtics Notable Additions: Al Horford, Jaylen Brown The Celtics were one of free-agency’s biggest winners, as the addition of Al Horford should greatly boost what was previously the team’s biggest weakness — its frontcourt. Horford was a very steady fantasy asset in Atlanta and has managed to finish with at least second-round value in …

Punting Guides Part 7: Punt Steals

Punting steals is very similar to punting threes. Almost all fantasy-relevant guards steal the ball at a decent rate. The average amount of steals for a rostered player in a 12-team, standard league in 2014-2015 was 1.0 SPG. Punting steals is not about avoiding all guards who average slightly more swipes than the league average. …

Busts/Overvalued Players

This list was originally almost twice as long but Yahoo updated their rankings overnight and moved most of the obvious breakout candidates up and most of the obvious bust candidates down. 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 …

October Rankings Update

I’ve made a bunch of adjustments to the rankings after watching training camp and the first half of preseason. Most of the changes I have made are minor but I did move a handful of players up or down a couple rounds. The “Top 150” tab as well as the position rankings tabs have been …
