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 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 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: 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. Capela is only 23 and is entering his third year as a full-time player. We …

16/17 Punting Guides Part 6: Punt Threes

Punting threes is a very viable strategy and it works well with many of the first-round picks. The only issue I have with this build is that it’s unlikely to be my first choice for any of the first-round targets. If I’m fortunate enough to draft Karl-Anthony Towns in the first round, I’m going to …

16/17 Punting Guides Part 2: Punt FT%

Punt FT% is fantasy basketball’s most famous punting strategy and can be one it’s most effective if approached correctly. It can also be a trap for owners who think punting FT% is simply about picking as many poor free-throw shooters as possible. This build is surprisingly easy to screw up. Managers will often run into …

2016-2017 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 year is no different. How many times does …

September Rankings: 76-100

76) Dwight Howard (PF/C) – Howard is replacing Al Horford and remains a mid-round option for those punting FT%. The move to Atlanta should be accompanied by usage boost and that should lead to an increase in his shot attempts and scoring (13.7 PPG). Despite having his worst season since his rookie year, Howard was …

Free-Agent Roundup – Central Division

Cleveland Cavaliers Notable Additions: Mike Dunleavy, Chris Andersen, Kay Felder The defending champions didn’t have much cap space to work with and will go into the 2016-2017 season with a very similar roster to the one that upset the Warriors. J.R. Smith remains unsigned, but there have been no indications that the sharpshooter will not …
