Blocks can be one of the hardest positions to acquire if you start out your draft with a point guard such as Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, or Chris Paul and miss out on the top big men on the way back. This makes punting a viable strategy for blocks, allowing you to focus on guards or... Read More

In today’s NBA everyone is shooting a ton of three pointers and thus the category has been one of the more difficult ones to punt on.  There are two ways to look at punting the category, if you are able to draft Stephen Curry in round one, you may be able to do a near... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Monitor as a late season waiver wire add CURRENT ADP: NA ANALYSIS: Domantas Sabonis was considered one of the most skilled big men in this draft class and managed to land in a great spot in Oklahoma City. So far this preseason he seems to be starting alongside Steven Adams with Enes Kanter coming off the bench... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Monitor as a late season waiver wire add CURRENT ADP: NA ANALYSIS: Jakob Poeltl was the only true center to go in the top ten of this year’s draft. He’s playing on a Toronto team that has a pretty set starting rotation, including a potential All-Star center in Jonas Valanciunas. However, the role of backup to Valanciunas... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Monitor as a possible late season waiver wire add CURRENT ADP: NA ANALYSIS: The Knicks have an aging Joakim Noah and a not so talented Marshall Plumlee as their two center prospects. As long as those two are healthy, it will more than likely be a red-shirt year for Willy Hernangomez. If either Noah or Plumlee goes... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Monitor as a possible late season waiver wire stash CURRENT ADP: NA ANALYSIS: Wade Baldwin will be a very intriguing player in his rookie season. He came into the draft with little fanfare, and was selected by the Grizzlies with the 17th pick in the first round. Baldwin is a good athlete, and his 6’3” frame comes... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Monitor as a possible late season waiver wire stash CURRENT ADP: NA ANALYSIS: With Derrick Rose already in the middle of a trial that could jeopardize his first season in a Knicks uniform, Brandon Jennings might very well find himself as the starting point guard in New York come the regular season. Jennings is among a handful of Phil Jackson's... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Draft in rounds 6-10 CURRENT ADP: 114 ANALYSIS: A third-year guard/forward out of Duke University, Rodney Hood took a giant leap forward in his sophomore season last year. Starting 79 games and averaging 32.2 minutes, the 23-year-old went on to average 14.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists. Already someone to target as a potential sleeper, Hood’s... Read More

Much like the rest of my avoid/busts articles, these are players that lack one or both of the main factors you need from a solid fantasy option, production and consistency. If you have both, good chances your team will do well. Just because these players may not be as consistent as you would have hoped,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Draft in rounds 6-10 CURRENT ADP: 110.6 ANALYSIS: 25-year-old Nikola Mirotic took a step in the right direction in his sophomore campaign last year, but could be set to move his career miles ahead for the 2016-17 season. With Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah gone from the picture in Chicago, Mirotic’s role has suddenly grown significantly, and he... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Draft in rounds 8-12 CURRENT ADP: 100 ANALYSIS: The biggest mystery of our trio, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will be taking on a significantly larger role in his second professional season with the Brooklyn Nets. The 21-year-old played in 29 games and started 17 last year, averaging 5.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 21.2... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Draft in rounds 5-8 CURRENT ADP: 66.8 ANALYSIS: D'Angelo “Ice in my veins” Russell is going to go off this year. I don’t know if people are punishing their fantasy teams because of the whole Nick Young fiasco or if they just don’t get how good this young guard is. He is now the dominant player on... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Draft in rounds 4-6 CURRENT ADP: 52.3 ANALYSIS: Goran Dragic had his worst statistical season in five years last season while still playing around the same amount of minutes (32 MPG). The immediate reaction is to assume that he’s aging and the decline has to do with that. As a result, he is being taken behind the... Read More
