17/18 Punting Guides Part 1: Punt Assists

If you play in H2H leagues, and you’re not punting, you’re not doing it right. Trying to build a team that is competitive in every category might seem like a swell idea on the surface. We all dream about finding that fantasy basketball nirvana. That team that is strong in all nine categories that doesn’t …

17/18 Sleepers/Undervalued Players: Part 1

You won’t see me write too much about sleepers. There’s two reason for that. First off, I don’t like the term. When you hear the term “sleeper”, final-round picks who become top-50 players and swing leagues are usually the first thing that comes to mind. Players like that pop up every year, and obviously drafting …

17/18 September Rankings: 26-50

Note: Where I rank a player is not necessarily where I’d draft that player. You’ll see me rank some players inside of the top-50 that you won’t need to draft inside of the top-50. The rankings are meant to show how valuable I think a player will be. For example, I’m not suggesting that you take …

Week 17 Preview

We’ve made it to the most unique week of the season. Your strategy this week will depend on whether Week 17 lasts one or two weeks. If you play in a league where Week 17 last two weeks, then treat it like any other week. If you play in a league where Week 17 only …

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. We’ve seen this movie before. The Clippers have barely missed a beat when Griffin has gone down in the past and …

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 …

Punting Guides Part 7: Punt Steals

Punting steals is very similar to punting threes. Almost all fantasy-relevant guards steal the ball at a decent rate. 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. …
