NBA Fantasy Forethought Week 6 (Dec. 1-7)

The NBA is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get until you slip on the wet floor. Anyway, I couldn't help but feel for the Toronto Raptors.

NBA Fantasy Forethought Week 5 (Nov. 24-30)

Half of the top 10 players in the Player Rater are point guards and this is no coincidence. Here we are at basketball's Golden Age of point guards and the way the game has been played in the recent years, you have to have an elite PG (or players that play like one) to be successful. That is even more true when constructing a fantasy team. The fantasy blue print "point guards and power forwards" (explained here) did not come about by chance. Careful observation from our fellow fantasyheads Read More

I am officially heartbroken. I came into my leagues ready for the draft and my cheat sheets on, fully aware how thin the wing positions are going to be. I knew all the mainstays at the SG and SF will be gone after the second round so I have to look elsewhere. As far as I can remember, I had the chance to grab Gordon Hayward in every single one of my teams but I didn't. I don't know why but I just didn't and that has got to be the worst decision I have ever made in all of my years playing fantasy Read More
