Changing Tides: A Look Into Surprising NBA Playoff Performances

The playoffs are in full swing but it's not too early to look forward to next year's fantasy season. With teams going all out and putting out their strongest rotations, we can see how teams truly value each of their pieces, so big performances and surprising turns can be taken with more validity than during...

We've already spent posts looking at intriguing rookies, and yet we've still got plenty of great first players to examine, all of whom have high-level fantasy upside in the future. For our previous lists, check out Part 1 and Part 2. This week we dive even deeper into this year's rookies, and examine their production... Read More

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...

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. In leagues... Read More

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...

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

The season is starting next week! You may have already drafted your fantasy team or you may still be drafting this weekend.  Either way, we only have a few more days to kill before there's real basketball. To pass the time, we'll be running through the different divisions in the NBA with high level overviews of... Read More

Welcome to fantasy draft season for the 2017-18 NBA season! It's time to start thinking about how you're going to win your league this year. RotoBaller will be here with rankings, sleepers, players to avoid, and much more. Before we dive too deep into individual players, though, let's take a step back and look at... Read More

The season is starting next week! You may have already drafted your fantasy team or you may still be drafting this weekend.  Either way, we only have four more days to kill before there's real basketball. To pass the time, we'll be running through the different divisions in the NBA with high level overviews of... Read More

CHOO CHOO! The Fantasy Basketball Hype Train is a season-long fantasy basketball feature where I can just have fun and write about the players me, you, and everyone else already wants to talk about. Are you ready for a ride on the fantasy basketball hype train? There's no kind of hype like 76ers hype, and... Read More

Big-splash trades defined the 2017 offseason. Kyrie Irving being traded to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas and a bevy of assets appeared to cap off an unforgiving and unpredictable summer of massive trades. Then, in another top-rope-finishing-move trade executed by Thunder GM Sam Presti, Carmelo Anthony was moved for Enes Kanter. You read that... Read More

Imagine this: the pre-season is over. It’s mid-November and the smell of pumpkin pie is in the air. Your draft has long come and passed and you now have a real life fantasy team with a roster you set every week. You stay on top of player news and even watch a game every so... Read More

CHOO CHOO! This is a new season-long fantasy basketball feature where I can just have fun and write about the players me, you, and everyone else already wants to talk about. Are you ready for a ride on the fantasy basketball hype train? There's something about a "1/1/1" guy -- a player who can post... Read More

Welcome to the world of fantasy basketball, the best way to be more popular, get more promotions, and fight with all your friends. Fantasy... Read More

So you’ve committed to the fantasy life. You have your league, you paid your buy-in, and you chose your stupid team name with its obligatory nonsense pun. But for a beginner, you’re about to face the toughest part of the season: the draft. People will tell you that it all amounts to luck in the... Read More

The 2017 NBA off-season was bonkers. Bamboozling. B-a-n-a-n-a-s. By now, you know that the 2017 NBA off-season could be remembered exclusively for its confounding big-splash trades. But if you're here, you're asking: how in the world should I evaluate players if Danny Ainge can't seem to figure it out? The new map of the NBA... Read More

One of the biggest questions heading into the fantasy basketball season is where to draft already injured NBA stars. Players such as Isaiah Thomas, Jabari Parker and Zach LaVine provide a ton of fantasy value, but will likely begin the season on the injury list. Where you select injured players could either sink your team... Read More

This year's EuroBasket was one of the richest if we look at NBA players who featured in it. How a player performs for his national team can be a good cheat sheet come draft day. You may be able to get some value picks or even steals who smash their ADP as not too many... Read More

The popular opinion these days, at least on the fantasybball subreddit, is that the top eight picks in fantasy basketball are Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Karl Anthony Towns, Anthony Davis, and Kawhi Leonard. So if we take this group of players as the "top tier", who is the leader... Read More

It's just under two months away from the start of the NBA season, and RotoBaller's full Fantasy basketball coverage will be returning some time in late September. However, with both ESPN and Yahoo leagues already open for sign-ups, I know some of you early birds are out there already drafting. This was the first year... Read More
