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.

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 …

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.
