17/18 Punting Guides Part 3: Punt FG%

Punt FT% remains the most popular punting strategy, but the punt FG% build is nipping at its heels. There are two reasons for this rise in popularity. One plays in Oklahoma City and the other makes his home in Houston. If you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to draft either, don’t even think …

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.

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.

Free-Agent Roundup – Pacific Division

Golden State Warriors When you have a historic regular season and follow it up with a dominant playoff run, you don’t mix things up. The defending champions’ only notable move was their trade of David Lee to Boston for the corpse of Gerald Wallace. Wallace’s game was always very dependent on athleticism and now that his …
