NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 10

The NBA is in full swing and what's a good indication? If you see teams positioning themselves for the lottery or the long playoff haul, then you know. Ask Paul Pierce. Speaking of, developments abound the league the past few days: a.) Josh Smith's signing with the Houston Rockets after being waived by the Pistons and b.) the Los Angeles Lakers opting to rest Kobe Bryant's tired everything in hopes of a fresher Mamba for days to come. (Honestly, I think that's the Purple and Gold waving the white Read More

NBA Fantasy Forethought Week 9 (Dec. 22-28)

We have forecasted the possible fantasy implications of two trades that happened last week, the Rajon Rondo to Dallas and Corey Brewer to Houston swaps. There's no doubt about the end results of both transactions, but the finer details and the temporary ramifications are interesting to say the least. Speaking of interesting, I think this year's MVP race should be electric, in the superlative form. To put this in perspective, the top four candidates Steph Curry, Marc Gasol, Anthony Davis and James Read More

What the Corey Brewer trade meant for fantasy owners

As busy as teams are right now, I would've mistaken everything as a February trade deadline rush. Clearly, all the General Managers pulled the trigger for one reason and one reason only: for the improvement of the team. For fantasy owners, we couldn't care less. (Actually, we do, but not to the fullest sense.) All we wanted is see what these transactions do or will do to our teams and then act like a smart GM will do. The trade that went through Friday was minor compared to the one that swung Read More

Rich getting richer: Fantasy impact of the Rajon Rondo trade

Unless you lived in a pineapple under the sea, your social media News Feed may have flooded because of the latest major trade in the NBA. Rajon Rondo (along with Dwight Powell) was dealt to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Jameer Nelson, Jae Crowder, Brandan Wright and two future first round picks. Talking about the rich getting richer. From a realistic perspective, it tells us two things: The Boston Celtics is in full rebuild mode while Mark Cuban's crew is serious about contending. After Read More

NBA Fantasy Players You Must Roster (Dec 15, 2014)

NBA Fantasy Players: Locks For Your Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup (As of Monday, December 15th) Fanduel has somewhat slacked off on changing some prices recently. A bunch of the mid range guys have recently seen increased roles on their teams, which will help your overall score night in and night out. At this point in the season, there is no point in luckboxing rookies anymore. We have a large enough sample size to know who is capable of what vs. who. Now is where research starts paying off, when Read More

NBA Fantasy Forethought Week 8 (Dec. 15-21)

It's official. We have put too much faith in this year's rookie class and expected them to be like the four-headed monster (and one lizard head) the 2003 draft class was. Truth be told, as we have put too much faith in them, we might be putting too much unnecessary pressure on these youngsters, too. At this point in 2003, top rookies LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony (Did you expect me to include Darko Milicic?) averaged 18.1 and 18.7, points, respectively for Cleveland and Denver. This batch, Andrew Read More

Quarterly Report: Best Fantasy Basketball Surprises

We have already reached the quarter mark of the season and we pretty much have an idea how the rotations went, who we can and we can't trust night in and night out. The dynamics will surely be different after the All-Star break and I reserve my judgement when we cross that bridge. As a team, what really surprised me more than the Milwaukee Bucks is the Houston Rockets. The Bucks' management had all the trust in the world with Jason Kidd, let him play around with the lineup a bit and voila! Number Read More

NBA Fantasy Forethought Week 7 (December 8-14)

So far this season, I think we have already segregated the weeds from the wheat, the men from the boys, if you will. Out West, two teams have exactly done that-- not only in the standings-- but their style of play as well: the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors. After losing key pieces in the offseason through trades (Jeremy Lin to LAL) and free agency (Chandler Parsons to Dallas), nobody gave Houston much of a chance in a stacked conference. As it turns out, the Rockets are winning Read More
