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 …

Buy Low/Sell High Targets and a Preview of Week 5

The hallmark of a poor fantasy owner is impatience. Too often managers overreact to slow starts and sell underachieving players low. Don’t be one of those managers. In fact, do the opposite. Trading for underachieving early-round picks can win you your league. When deciding which players to target, looking at their per minute numbers is …

16/17 Punting Guides Part 6: Punt Threes

Punting threes is a very viable strategy and it works well with many of the first-round picks. The only issue I have with this build is that it’s unlikely to be my first choice for any of the first-round targets. If I’m fortunate enough to draft Karl-Anthony Towns in the first round, I’m going to …
