Forwards to Avoid in Fantasy Basketball Drafts

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

Guards to Avoid in Fantasy Basketball Drafts

I'll keep this quick because the title says it all. These guards should be avoided during your 2016-17 fantasy basketball drafts due to their minimal potential in season-long formats. This does not mean to avoid them for daily games, because all players will have good games. But solid seasonal fantasy options need a combination of production... Read More

Centers to Avoid in Fantasy Basketball Drafts

In my last article I outlined some of the overvalued centers in the league.  This time I will be listing centers who you should simply avoid.

Three Overvalued Centers for Fantasy Basketball Drafts

Let me set one thing straight before I get started on my three overvalued NBA centers for the 2016-17 fantasy basketball season. Just because these players are on this list, does not mean that they are bad players. They are simply the centers I found to be overvalued according to their Yahoo ADP rank. That's... Read More

Seven Seconds or Harden: D'Antoni and the Rockets

After being a preseason favorite in the West, last year's Rockets stumbled out of the gate, fired head coach Kevin McHale, and limped into the playoffs under interim coach J. B. Bickerstaff.  This offseason they made big changes. First of all, Mike D’Antoni is now at the reigns of the Harden Express and his fast... Read More

Walking Again in Memphis: The Grizzlies Are Back

After a strong start to the season, last year's Memphis Grizzlies suffered a catastrophic series of injuries -- not only to all-star starters like Marc Gasol and Mike Conley, but also their backups Brandan Wright and Mario Chalmers -- leading to record setting number of 28 players who made an appearance for the Grizzlies. The... Read More

Will Joakim Noah Rebound in New York?

The addition of Derrick Rose was a deal that left a massive hole in the defense of the Knicks. It gave NY the offensive firepower it lacked but gave up Robin Lopez, a solid defensive option that was traded to the Bulls along with Jerian Grant and Jose Calderon. What the Knicks did next actually... Read More

NBA Sleepers Unleashed: Dennis Schroder and Mario Hezonja

The NBA recently saw two massive trades take place.  One sent Jeff Teague to Indiana, George Hill to Utah, and the 12th overall pick (Taurean Prince) to Atlanta, while the other sent Serge Ibaka to Orlando for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova, and the draft rights to Domantas Sabonis to Oklahoma City.  While it's exciting to...

Thad Young and the New Look Pacers

If adding Jeff Teague wasn't enough, the Pacers traded their 20th pick and future second round pick on draft night to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for 28-year old forward, Thaddeus Young. Brooklyn was a 21 win team last year and much of that is thanks to Thad. Averaging 15.1 points / 9.0 rebounds last... Read More
