17/18 September Rankings: 101-125

101) Dennis Smith Jr. (PG) – Smith was dynamite in summer league and should be a serious contender for the rookie of the year award. He doesn’t have the long-term upside that Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball do, but he could be better as a rookie. He’s going to have a fairly large role for Mavericks. …

Week 3 will likely feature the return of some very useful fantasy players. If Chandler Parsons, Gary Harris, Darren Collison, and Danny Green are somehow available in your league, please stop reading right now and go pick them up. It’s still too early to panic on established players but owners should be re-evaluating many of …

16/17 Punting Guides Part 4: Punt Blocks

Blocks are very difficult to find as they tend to be concentrated among just a handful of players. In 2015-2016, only five players managed to block at least two shots a night and only two of those players shot better than 65% from the line. The theory behind punting blocks is similar to the theory …

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 …

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 …

Punting Guides Part 2: Punt FT%

If you asked the average fantasy player to name a punting strategy, almost all would answer punt FT%. Fantasy basketball’s most famous strategy is effective as ever, with loads of talented young big men available early in the draft to pair with the first-round guards. Big men generally get a boost in this build, but …

Free-Agent Roundup – Central Division

Cleveland Cavaliers  I haven’t read their financials, but Quicken Loans must be doing pretty well these days. Dan Gilbert has already shelled out over $200 million in contracts and that’s not even including the $80-90 million that Tristan Thompson is about to receive. From a basketball standpoint, the Cavs couldn’t be positioned any better. They …

Punting Guides Part 2: Punt FT%

Punt FT% is probably the most popular punt strategy and for good reason. Punt FT% allows you to chase those rare blocks and grab elite FG% impact without having to close your eyes every time your big man goes to the line. The best anchor for this strategy is not Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, or …

Team Building Part 6: Punt Assists

Everyone loves point guards and for good reason. Not only is it the position that is the best source of assists, point guards usually have a positive impact on every category but blocks, turnovers, and FG%. I have yet to be part of a draft where point guards weren’t drafted early and often. While many …
