Brad Leibfried's Draft Sleepers List (Premium Content)

Oh, the fantasy basketball sleeper. It is a term that is often discussed and heavily debated. What makes a sleeper a sleeper, and when do they cross over the threshold from sleeper to overvalued.

The best way to lose your fantasy basketball draft is to blow your early round picks on guys who don't perform like early round picks.

Trevor Crippen's Late-Round NBA Fliers (Premium Content)

You don't win your leagues in the first few rounds, but you certainly can lose them.

Trevor Crippen's NBA Dynasty Sleepers List (Premium Content)

It's hard to evaluate what's being undervalued and overvalued in dynasty leagues in fantasy basketball, because unlike football and baseball, there just isn't reliable information out there about the average ADP of players in basketball dynasty leagues.

Three Undervalued Forwards for Fantasy Basketball Drafts

Forward is normally a deep position in fantasy basketball. Many owners look for their forwards to be solid all around producers in the mold of Draymond Green or Kristaps Porzingis.

When adopting punting strategies, fantasy owners need to remember that the point of punting is to maximize the value of their players, not to explicitly throw away a few categories.
