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 …

17/18 September Rankings: 26-50

Note: Where I rank a player is not necessarily where I’d draft that player. You’ll see me rank some players inside of the top-50 that you won’t need to draft inside of the top-50. The rankings are meant to show how valuable I think a player will be. For example, I’m not suggesting that you take …

Week 15 Preview

After a quick break for the holidays and a rankings update, the weekly previews are back. Most leagues only have five or six weeks left in the regular season and if you are currently sitting outside of the playoffs, now is not the time to stash. Nailing a stash won’t mean much if you are …

Week 8 Preview

There are a handful of potential mid-round players returning this week, so owners need to be aggressive and jettison their end-of-the-bench players if some of the below options are still available. Players who don’t have the potential to be top-100 assets are expendable in the middle of December, even if they are currently playing better …

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 …

Preseason Rankings Update

The regular season is just over a week away and most players’ outlooks are much clearer than they were a month ago. After following training camp and watching far too much preseason, I have made numerous adjustments to my rankings. Most changes were minor, but I did make about a dozen major changes that I …

September Rankings: 26-50

26) Kristaps Porzingis (PF/C) – Karl-Anthony Towns was 2015-2016’s most hyped rookie, but Porzingis wasn’t far behind and deservedly so. The Knick is a dream fit for the punt FG% build due to his elite blocks (1.9 BPG) and solid rebounding (7.3 RPG) and fits well into almost any build thanks to his big man …

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. …

Punting Guides Part 5: Punt Blocks

Blocks are very difficult to find as they tend to be concentrated among just a handful of players. In 2014-2015, only six players managed to block at least two shots a night and only two of those players shot better than 63% from the line. Owners will often reach for blocks at the expense of other …
