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: 76-100

76) Lonzo Ball (PG) – Ball’s rookie season is probably going to be a circus. Luke Walton wasn’t afraid to bench D’Angelo Russell and you can guess what’s going to happen if he does the same to Ball. The off-court stuff could be messy, but the on-court stuff shouldn’t be. Ball has great vision and great …

Week 3 Preview

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.

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: 101-125

101) Al-Farouq Aminu (SF/PF) – Aminu’s line ended up looking much different than most predicted in his first season in Portland. Aminu suddenly became an excellent source of threes (1.5 3PG), but failed to produce the defensive stats (0.9 SPG, 0.6 BPG) that fueled his breakout season in Dallas. The versatile swingman did get better …

Free-Agent Roundup – Southwest Division

Dallas Mavericks Notable Additions: Seth Curry, Harrison Barnes, Andrew Bogut The Mavericks took advantage of the Warriors’ role player fire sale, scooping up Bogut for cheap and Barnes for not so cheap. Usually, I get excited when a role player is stepping into a much larger role, but that’s not the case with Barnes. In …

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 …

Monday and Tuesday were light, but Wednesday saw most of the league in action so let’s take a look at what went down last night. – Rudy Gay is not a good basketball player. He is the type of the player that you don’t want on your team if you are interested in winning. He …

Week 2: Monday/Tuesday Recap

Week 2 is primetime when it comes to making trades. Managers are overrating unproven players and underrating proven studs who have struggled out of the gate. Sure Larry Sanders is looking like he’d struggle in a D3 game but that doesn’t mean that you should trade him for a player picked in the 9th round. …
