NBA Waiver Wire Rankings for Week 1

The NBA season is finally underway, but it's never too early. There's always an opportunity on the waiver wire for your fantasy basketball teams. Consider this your weekly quick-hit list of 10 players to consider off the waiver wire. Keep an eye out for more in-depth waiver wire analysis and columns coming in the next few days. But for now, hopefully this helps fantasy owners out there looking to beef up their fantasy rosters to kickoff thecontinue reading...

Five Under the Radar Fantasy Basketball Sleepers

This NBA season is an especially hard one to predict. So many stars have changed teams and changed roles. We don't even know what first round fantasy superstars like Russell Westbrook and James Harden are going to do, much less second tier guys like Carmelo Anthony. In all the uncertainty in the earlier rounds, it is easy to forget about the less flashy producers around thecontinue reading...

Fantasy Basketball Hype Train: 15 Minutes in Heaven with Joel Embiid

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 there's no kind of 76ers hype like Joel Embiid hype. Yes, as a Redditor pointed out, hecontinue reading...

Dewayne Dedmon - Fantasy Basketball Sleeper

Player:  Dewayne Dedmon Position: C Team: Atlanta Hawks Analysis: The Atlanta Hawks cleaned the cupboards this summer with the loss of Paul Millsap, Dwight Howard, and Tim Hardaway Jr.  Because of that the team needed to retool their front line. That group will be anchored, especially on defense, by Dewayne Dedmon.  The former Spur comes over to the Hawks with a chance to becontinue reading...

2017-18 Fantasy Basketball Late Round / Deep League Sleepers

If you're 13 rounds deep into your fantasy basketball draft and you've started wondering, what's the point? This guy's not going to be on my roster in two weeks. Well, we've got you covered. Today we'll take a look at three players to look out for as late round flyers for the 2017-18 NBA season. Rather than taking someone at random and dropping them for a hot waiver pickup, these guys will give you a chance tocontinue reading...

NBA Rookie Fantasy Profile: Caleb Swanigan

Position: PF/C Team: Portland Blazers Draft Spot: 1.26 Analysis: Swanigan is a player that was dominant in the NCAA, but did not project well in the NBA. That caused him to slide on draft day, but he was still selected in the late first round. It seems as if those skills have translated to the NBA, though, as Damian Lillard has stated multiple times that he believes Swanigan will win Rookie of the Year. Swanigan enjoyed a great freshmancontinue reading...

NBA Rookie Fantasy Profile: Jarrett Allen

Position: C Team: Brooklyn Nets Draft Spot: 1.22 Analysis: Allen was somewhat of a surprising entering the draft, but he came with great high school pedigree. He enjoyed success at Texas, but was not able to carry the team the way many scouts believed he was capable of. Still, he was drafted in the first round by the Brooklyn Nets. Allen played 32.2 minutes per game during his only season at Texas, averaging 13.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game. Hecontinue reading...

NBA Rookie Fantasy Profile: Bam Adebayo

Position: C Team: Miami Heat Draft Spot: 1.14 Analysis: Adebayo was a player that teams either seemed to fall in love with or absolutely hate. There were reports that some teams saw him as a potential top-10 pick, while other teams had a second round grade on him. It only takes one team to take a chance on a player, though, and the Miami Heat were the team to go all in on the true center from Kentucky. Adebayo was not the focalcontinue reading...

NBA Rookie Fantasy Profile: Zach Collins

Position: C Team: Portland Blazers Draft Spot: 1.10 Analysis: Collins was expected to go between picks 10-15, so this was not unexpected. Some would argue that he should have fell because of his inability to win a starting role as a freshman at Gonzaga. That is a bit of a crazy analysis, though, as Gonzaga was an extremely deep team and the NBA tends to put more stock in players projection than their college production. Collins looked elite on a per minute basis,continue reading...

Who Won or Lost You Your Fantasy Playoffs

The regular season of the NBA is drawing to a close. And as the chase for playoff berth is on, it's all over in most fantasy leagues. Owners in leagues that have playoffs surely have some stories of studs and duds of this last period to share with their fellow fantasy rivals. Disappointment, when a guy you picked yourself out of a bunch, and expected to contribute selflessly to your teams Championship push, burns out, cannot becontinue reading...

We'll be taking a look at some frontcourt players who can help out your team, based on either their great play as of late or by decent enough contribution combinedcontinue reading...

Fantasy Basketball Risers and Fallers for NBA Week 23

These are mostly players that have served you well during the regular season and you counted on them to provide for you when the things get tough. Some of them came through when needed, some of them didn't. Some of them you'll be picking out like a needle from a haystack come next years draft, and others, well... Let's keep things politecontinue reading...

NBA Bench Risers: Waiver Wire Sleepers for Fantasy Basketball (Week 23)

As a fantasy owner, you need to decide which of those players can contribute across multiple categories and have the potential to make the most of their time on the court.

Willy Hernangomez (C, NY) - NBA Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 41% Yahoo! ANALYSIS: Willy Hernangomez didn't have too big a role on the Knicks until not that long ago. He actually averaged just 14 minutes per game in his first 41 contests this season, and even picked up a few DNPs.

OWNED IN: 36% Yahoo!

OWNED IN: 46% Yahoo!

ANALYSIS: The Kings traded DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans, leaving a huge hole in the frontcourt for Sacramento. Willie Cauley-Stein, the sixth pick of the 2015 draft, is almost certain to get a lot more playing time going forward. He was only playing 13 minutes per game so far this season, but that
