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 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.

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: 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. …

16/17 Punting Guides Part 1: Punt Assists

All punting strategies can be pulled off effectively if managers put enough time and thought into them. But there is one strategy that stands above the rest. Punt assists.

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 …

Players to Watch in Week 1

The first few weeks of the season are some of the most important weeks of the year to fantasy owners. Wins and losses don’t count anymore than they do later in the season, but the waiver wire is always a goldmine in November. If you are new to fantasy basketball, I suggest paying a lot …
