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 6: Punt Threes

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or have only watched Timberwolves games lately, you’ve probably noticed that the league is now in love with the three-ball. As it should be. It’s simple math. Three is greater than two and the attempts are only going to go up from here. The league’s increased attention to …

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. Devin Booker may go before pick 50 in your draft even though he provides little outside of …

17/18 Punting Guides Part 2: Punt FT%

Fantasy basketball’s most famous punting strategy is making a comeback. Last season was a rough one for this build. Most of the classic big man targets were going extremely early in the draft, making it difficult to pair those big men with elite guards. If you wanted to acquire the services of Hassan Whiteside, DeAndre …

17/18 September Rankings: 126-150

126) Patty Mills (PG) – The Australian has always been a very intriguing player. He has always posted very good per minute numbers, but hasn’t taken off like his per minutes numbers would suggest when given extended run. With Tony Parker out at least another four months, Mills will have his best opportunity yet to establish …

Week 6 Preview

We’re back to full weekly previews after a quick break to look at some buy low and sell high candidates. This week’s free-agent pickups feature two high-ceiling players who should return within the next couple of weeks. When to pick up an injured player depends on your team. I wouldn’t recommend grabbing an injured player …

Week 4 Preview

The flow of interesting free agents has started to slow down, as it always does around this time each season, but there’s still more than a few fresh faces who are worth our attention. The below list of players does not include many of the players that I recommended last week. That does not mean …

Week 3 Preview

Week 3 will likely feature the return of some very useful fantasy players. If Chandler Parsons, Gary Harris, Darren Collison, and Danny Green are somehow available in your league, please stop reading right now and go pick them up. It’s still too early to panic on established players but owners should be re-evaluating many of …
