Basketball is built on the basics. Fundamentals make a player and great fundamentals make a great player. There is nothing more fundamental than free throws. It may not be the most exciting thing for fans to watch, especially coming from the past decade which included debacles like three-point flopping or Hack-a-Shaq. It does slow down... Read More

Welcome to fantasy draft season for the 2018-19 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

NBA season is drawing near, and all of us fantasy nuts in re-draft leagues are wandering the same thing. When do we draft!? A few of my friends and I were "arguing" about just this a few days back and I thought it would be interesting to bring to you some of my conclusions from... Read More

Perhaps more than any other professional league in the world, the NBA is based around superstars. These are players you know are going to show up each and every night and produce solid all-around games. That holds even truer for fantasy basketball.  There is no need to look any further than the final per game... Read More

The first team is on the clock. The draft has begun. You're picking 2nd overall, wondering if you'll land Anthony Davis or James Harden. Then the first selection is made: Cedi Osman, CLE - SF/PF. The owner proudly announces "if he's good enough to work out LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kawhi Leonard, he's good... Read More

Whether you're new to this wonderful world of Fantasy NBA or already a veteran with several championships under your belt, you're almost guaranteed to have heard of or played in a 9-cat league. Whether it's Roto, Points or my personal favorite - Head-to-head; nine-category leagues are the most common and kind of the standard for... Read More

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? Was he added using a waiver claim? Did the owner have to spend FAAB (free agent acquisition budget) dollars to acquire him? Or, as... Read More

Right up through the end of the 2017-18 NBA draft season, fantasy owners were regularly taking Kawhi Leonard with a top 10 pick despite no assurances of when he'd return to the Spurs (his average ADP across ESPN, Yahoo, and CBS finished at 9.7, per FantasyPros). The thought process was that he had top 5... Read More

Once you get outside of the lottery, the NBA Draft becomes really hit or miss. In 2017, the 16 players picked in the first round after the lottery featured two guys who didn't play in the NBA last season, but it also produced useful fantasy players like Jarrett Allen and Kyle Kuzma. In part three... Read More

In the first part of this mock draft, I looked in depth at the (possible) top five picks in this year's NBA Draft. In this one, we'll look at the rest of this year's lottery, picks six through 14. These players don't have the same star power and high expectations that the top five picks... Read More

Welcome back to RotoBaller's basketball coverage. Did you enjoy the playoffs? The thrill of, uhhh, another Warriors/Cavaliers Finals? So excite! Much wow! Surprises! (Okay, I'm taking this lack of enthusiasm too far -- both conference finals were fun and exciting and a Chris Paul injury away from bringing us something very unexpected.) But now, with... Read More

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... 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

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

The season is starting next week!

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
