Week 9 Preview

The big news of the week was the announcement that Blake Griffin will undergo what is being described as a minor “clean up” surgery that will put him on the shelf for three-to-six weeks.

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 …

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: 26-50

26) Kristaps Porzingis (PF/C) – Karl-Anthony Towns was 2015-2016’s most hyped rookie, but Porzingis wasn’t far behind and deservedly so. The Knick is a dream fit for the punt FG% build due to his elite blocks (1.9 BPG) and solid rebounding (7.3 RPG) and fits well into almost any build thanks to his big man …

The average amount of steals for a rostered player in a 12-team, standard league in 2014-2015 was 1.0 SPG. Punting steals is not about avoiding all guards who average slightly more swipes than the league average. …

Free-Agent Roundup – Central Division

Cleveland Cavaliers  I haven’t read their financials, but Quicken Loans must be doing pretty well these days. Dan Gilbert has already shelled out over $200 million in contracts and that’s not even including the $80-90 million that Tristan Thompson is about to receive. From a basketball standpoint, the Cavs couldn’t be positioned any better. They …

Fantasy Awards

Fantasy MVP – Steph Curry Steph is looking like he’s on his way to completing a truly historic season. With the Spurs done, and Love out for the year, I’d be very surprised if the Larry O’Brien Trophy doesn’t end up taking a trip to the Bay Area. This means we’re very likely to see Steph complete the most …
