Last week, we started our look through the league's rookies, focusing on the most well-known players. Today, we look to move into that second tier of guys. These rookies won't be competing for any rookie of the year rewards, but they possess skill-sets that could yield many fruitful fantasy seasons to come. Let's start with... Read More

With most fantasy playoffs in full swing, and articles all over the place with regards to waiver pickups, stream targets and playoff match-up analysis, I figured it'd be a good time to instead take a look with an eye on the future. 2017-2018's rookie class was one of the most exciting in recent memory, and...

Now that you're in the playoffs, it doesn't mean it's time to take your foot off the gas when it comes to streaming. If anything, in a single elimination format, it is even more important than before to sell out for that W. We're here to help you pick out targets to swing those match-ups.... Read More

Today, I'm going to do something a bit unique. Recently, I had a nice constructive argument with some other fantasy basketball players regarding team-building theory, centering around whether it is better to go into a draft with a strategy in mind (forcing a punt strategy), or staying open through your first few picks.

We're entering the home stretch of the season as all-star weekend just wrapped up in Los Angeles last week. At this point in the season, teams know where they stand in the NBA hierarchy, and one of the most exciting things about this part of the season is seeing what young guys can do when given...

We're hitting the part of the season where tanking teams are starting to show their hand, and that usually leads to a fantasy goldmine with young players on those tanking teams getting a chance at starters minutes. Let's take a look at some pickups as we gear up for the playoffs. Here are today's Week 20 deeper... Read More

With the all-star break limiting the amount of games to analyze, I thought I’d write about more general strategy as opposed to any player specific analysis. Even with the NBA taking a week off, there’s no reason for us to stop learning and become better players, so let’s take a look at some draft theory.... Read More

  As we enter the final stretch of the season, it's almost time to find out whether certain lottery tickets pan out. Young guys who see some run can really help to round out fantasy rosters in the last few weeks of the season, and getting the jump on them is a good way to... Read More

We should have known better when we thought that things were a bit too quiet last week. The NBA has taught us again and again near the trade deadline that bombs can be dropped at any given moment and usually, it's in a way we don't expect. This was the case when it came to last... Read More

This week was a week of depressing season ending injuries.

The NBA trade deadline is fast approaching, and this means some more opportunity to be found for players on the wire.
