Week 2 Preview

The best advice that I can give you after Week 1 is to not panic. A two or three game sample size does not mean much regardless of how good or bad a player has looked. That’s not to say that we should completely ignore the first week of the season. Rotations are becoming much …

17/18 Punting Guides Part 5: Punt Blocks

You can’t always get what you want in fantasy, especially if you play in a league with a snake draft. Often you’ll land your preferred first-round pick only to see your best second- and third-round options come off the board before you get a chance to pick again. The unpredictability of fantasy basketball drafts makes …

17/18 Punting Guides Part 4: Punt Points and Punt Points/FT%

The fantasy community has a very unhealthy relationship with points. It will do some truly sick things to get their fix. You’ll see Andrew Wiggins being drafted within the first 50 picks despite having never posted top-100 numbers.

September Rankings: 126-150

126) Darren Collison (PG) – Collison would be a top-75 pick if he wasn’t looking at a lengthy suspension to start the year. The point guard pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge over the summer and is about to have the league come down on him hard. The NBA hasn’t had a major …

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 2013-2014, only four players, Serge Ibaka, DeAndre Jordan, Anthony Davis, and Roy Hibbert averaged over two blocks a night. Owners will often reach for blocks at the expense of other categories due to their scarcity. Because …

Week 3 Pickups and Drops

Week 2 was a tough one for the league’s big men. Both Larry Sanders and JaVale McGee went down with long-term injuries that forced owners to scramble for replacements. Sanders is a hold as despite his poor start, he still has top 25 potential. McGee is a drop as he’s too much of a headache …
