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. One plays in Oklahoma City and the other makes his home in Houston. If you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to draft either, don’t even think …

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 September Rankings: 51-75

51) Clint Capela (PF/C) – Capela has early-round upside if he’s placed in the right build. He was only a top-45 player in the punt FT% build last season, but provided borderline second-round value if you were punting points as well. Capela is only 23 and is entering his third year as a full-time player. We …

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 …

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. …

Punting Guides Part 3: Punt Assists

Punt FT% is the most famous punting strategy, but punt assists is arguably the most reliable and straight forward team building approach. Do not mistake its relative simplicity for lack of effectiveness. Due to the average fantasy player’s undying love for dimes, the punt assists build allows managers to obtain value elsewhere while their opponents …

Punting Guides Part 1: Punt FG%

I’ve been playing fantasy basketball for over a decade now and each year I become more and more convinced of one thing; how you build your team is every bit as important as who is on your team. In a competitive head-to-head league, it is nearly impossible to be consistently competitive in every category and that’s OK. In fact, you …
