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 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 September Rankings: 126-150

126) Patty Mills (PG) – The Australian has always been a very intriguing player. He has always posted very good per minute numbers, but hasn’t taken off like his per minutes numbers would suggest when given extended run. With Tony Parker out at least another four months, Mills will have his best opportunity yet to establish …

Week 8 Preview

There are a handful of potential mid-round players returning this week, so owners need to be aggressive and jettison their end-of-the-bench players if some of the below options are still available. Players who don’t have the potential to be top-100 assets are expendable in the middle of December, even if they are currently playing better …

We’re back to full weekly previews after a quick break to look at some buy low and sell high candidates. This week’s free-agent pickups feature two high-ceiling players who should return within the next couple of weeks. When to pick up an injured player depends on your team.

16/17 Punting Guides Part 4: Punt Blocks

Blocks are very difficult to find as they tend to be concentrated among just a handful of players. In 2015-2016, only five players managed to block at least two shots a night and only two of those players shot better than 65% from the line. The theory behind punting blocks is similar to the theory …

2016-2017 Busts/Overvalued Players

Avoiding players who bust, especially early in the draft, can be just as important as finding that late-round sleeper who vastly outperforms their draft position. Luckily, most non-injury related busts are somewhat easy to spot. The same group of players are overrated year after year and this year is no different. How many times does …

September Rankings: 101-125

101) Al-Farouq Aminu (SF/PF) – Aminu’s line ended up looking much different than most predicted in his first season in Portland. Aminu suddenly became an excellent source of threes (1.5 3PG), but failed to produce the defensive stats (0.9 SPG, 0.6 BPG) that fueled his breakout season in Dallas. The versatile swingman did get better …

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 …
