Trevor Crippen - RotoBaller has written 156 articles so far, you can find them below.

Donovan Mitchell went undrafted in the majority of fantasy basketball leagues last season, and finished the season as a top 50 player. How did Mitchell end up on his owner's team?

We've tried a lot of weekly streamer pieces over the years at RotoBaller. Who's a good add for this category, who's a good add for this weekend, you know the drill. But these posts have tended to be a bit repetitive and never quite as helpful as we wanted them to be. This year we'll... Read More

It's been a rough start to the 2017-18 NBA season.
