NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 21 (March 16-22)

So this is what it all boil down to: the playoffs. Next week will be the moment of truth in most leagues and after 20 weeks of going through injuries, scanning waiver wires, and orchestrating trades-- this is it. Reaching this far is quite an accomplishment given how crazy the season got with standouts like Kemba Walker, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and others spending more time in the shelf than old bread. Chances are you drafted one of them and you survived with that excellent team management skill Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 20 (March 9- March 15)

An alarming rate of NBA stars has regressed noticeably this season. Some are surprising and some are not, having shown signs of slowing down the past couple years. Easier translation: They're getting old. Tony Parker, Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, Paul Pierce, among others, are some that are evidently losing their battle against Father Time. In the case of Parker and Williams, injuries are the main culprit, while Garnett, Dirk and Pierce, they are freaking fossils. Parker's decline Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 18 (Feb. 23- March 1)

If you're a Reggie Jackson owner (or the crafty one that immediately snagged him minutes after the trade deadline), what's not to love? If D.J. Augustin managed to come up with numbers good enough to be the seventh-best point guard in fantasy basketball as a starter for the Detroit Pistons, the Boston College product can possibly do a lot more. The best case scenario would be matching Augustin's numbers in the past 30 days: 18.1 points, 7.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and almost two treys in only under Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 13 (Jan.19- Jan.25)

Honestly, I couldn't remember one season where there are more transactions than Knicks' W's. That's not a knock on the Knickerbockers but more of a nod to the front offices doing everything in their power to be more relevant today or in the future. This week alone saw: Jeff Green move from Boston to Memphis (along with Russ Smith) Tayshaun Prince and Quincy Pondexter from Memphis to New Orleans (along with Grizzlies' future first-round pick to BOS) New Orleans' Austin Rivers was also Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 12 (Jan.12-Jan.18)

I can barely keep up with the transactions happening around the league and it's still January. In the past few days, the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith from New York while paying a steep price (two first round picks) to land Timofey Mozgov from the Denver Nuggets. Dion Waiters, too, went from Ohio to Oklahoma in the same deal. (Mozgov is potentially more valuable now that he's on a team desperate for a rim-protecting big man. He should be getting minutes as a back-up Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 11 (Jan.5- Jan.11)

In NBA fantasy basketball, basically you have to watch out for a couple of things: Injuries and playing time. The latter is often a by-product of the former but come to think of it, the other way around is also true. Say for example, LeBron James. Ever since "The King" step foot in an NBA arena, he was handed the key to a franchise immediately. At a mere 18 years old, 'Bron was playing almost 40 minutes a night with Carlos Boozer, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, and Jeff McInnis. His workload hasn't come down Read More

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
