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 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 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.

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 …

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 15 Preview

After a quick break for the holidays and a rankings update, the weekly previews are back. Most leagues only have five or six weeks left in the regular season and if you are currently sitting outside of the playoffs, now is not the time to stash. Nailing a stash won’t mean much if you are …

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 …
