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 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 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 …

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 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. When you hear the term “sleeper”, final-round picks who become top-50 players and swing leagues are usually the first thing that comes to mind. Players like that pop up every year, and obviously drafting …

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 …

September Rankings: 51-75

51) Goran Dragic (PG/SG) – It’s easy to forget that Dragic is only two years removed from a top-30 finish. Dwyane Wade, and his massive usage, destroyed Dragic’s value, but now that Wade is back home in Chicago, we should see the former Sun return to his top-50 ways. Chris Bosh’s future is still up …

October Rankings Update

The regular season is just over a week away and most players’ outlooks are much clearer than they were a month ago. After following training camp and watching far too much preseason, I have made numerous adjustments to my rankings. Most changes were minor, but I did make about a dozen major changes that I …
