New Projections Feature – Projections for Multi-Category Punts
October 9th, 2023 | Projections

The option to adjust the nine-category and eight-category projections to show each player’s value and ranking in multi-category punting builds has been added to the projections page. For example, you can now adjust the projections to display each player’s value and ranking in a punt points and FT% scenario. To do this, follow the instructions […]

23/24 When To Consider Guide – Eight and Nine-Category Leagues
October 7th, 2023 | Rankings

One of the questions I get asked the most is “When is it okay to reach for X player?”. That’s a very reasonable question. In competitive leagues, we often have to reach for the players we want. This guide answers that question for the players currently ranked inside of the top 100 in Elite Fantasy […]

23/24 Fast Starts Guides – Part 3
October 4th, 2023 | Punting Guides

Anthony Davis (Pick 9-12) Punt Threes: Davis/Young/Adebayo/DeRozan/Beal – A textbook punt threes start. Young is the best second-round partner for Davis in punt threes. He is durable, doesn’t hit as many threes as you’d think, and his line complements Davis’ line very well. Adebayo and DeRozan are your top targets in punt threes in rounds […]

23/24 Fast Starts Guides – Part 2
October 3rd, 2023 | Punting Guides

Jayson Tatum (Pick 3-7) Punt FG%: Tatum/Towns/Dejounte Murray/Porzingis/Barnes – This is a group that comes with no significant per-game weaknesses. This combination is slightly below average in points and average or better everywhere else. An excellent start in turnovers for a punt FG% team. You won’t be quite as dominant in the category as the […]

October 2nd, 2023 | Punting Guides

If you are short on time this draft season, this is the guide for you. Below are 36 five-man combinations that will send you into the sixth round in good shape. I wouldn’t recommend taking this approach, but if you did no other draft preparation and simply copied one of the below combinations, you would […]

23/24 Yahoo Busts V.1
September 30th, 2023 | Rankings

Yahoo usually does a good job of avoiding ranking players too high. The Yahoo Sleeper List is always fairly lengthy, but it’s been a few years since the Bust List included plenty of names. This year is no exception. While the Sleeper List includes almost 30 names, this year’s Bust List is about half the […]

23/24 Roto Top 150
September 29th, 2023 | Roto

This year’s Roto Top 150 is very different from this season’s H2H Top 150. That is because the two formats require very different approaches. In Roto, it is possible to punt, but it is not a strategy that every team should employ, as it is in H2H. Punting works in Roto but only when only […]

23/24 Pairing Guides – Part 3
September 26th, 2023 | Pairing Guides

Punt Assists: Anthony Davis/Mikal Bridges Above average in Rebounds, Blocks, FG%, Turnovers Average in Points Below average in Threes, Steals, FT% This combination isn’t as strong on a per-game basis as the Mitchell pairing, but it is a safer option. Bridges has been the most durable player in the league since making his pro debut […]

23/24 Pairing Guides – Part 2
September 25th, 2023 | Pairing Guides

Punt Assists: Jayson Tatum/Mikal Bridges (Roto) Above average in Points, Threes, FT%, Turnovers Below average in Rebounds, Steals, Blocks, FG% This is the safest pairing in fantasy basketball. Both Tatum and Bridges have a legitimate shot at playing 75+ games this year. Tatum has never missed more than a handful of games in a season […]

23/24 Pairing Guides – Part 1
September 24th, 2023 | Pairing Guides

Punt Blocks: Nikola Jokic/Karl-Anthony Towns Above average in Rebounds, Assists, FG%, FT% Below average in Points, Threes, Steals, Turnovers Those fortunate enough to start their teams with Jokic should not be afraid to start big-big. That is a move that can work very well in both punt threes and punt blocks. While you will come […]

23/24 Punt Steals Guides
September 21st, 2023 | Punting Guides

This is another punting guide that is worth a read, even if you have another strategy in mind. Not because it’s a strategy that a large chunk of your league is going to use like punt FG%, but because this is a strategy that works well not only as a primary strategy but as a […]

23/24 ESPN Sleepers
September 18th, 2023 | Sleepers

This year’s ESPN rankings are…not that bad? They’re not great, but they are a step up from last season’s debacle. In 2022-2023, we had players like Devin Vassell ranked outside of the top 150, interesting rookies like Walker Kessler ranked beside Zoran (not Goran) Dragic, and Jamal Murray ranked as a final-round flier. This year, […]

23/24 Punt Points Guides
September 17th, 2023 | Punting Guides

Punting points is for those who will not be satisfied with just winning their league. It is for those who want to demoralize their opponents to the point where they are left wondering why they even bothered to join the league in the first place. While this is not the easiest strategy to pull off, […]

23/24 Yahoo Sleepers
September 14th, 2023 | Sleepers

This is version 1 of this year’s Yahoo Sleepers/Undervalued Players list. Below are more than two dozen players that are currently ranked lower than they should be on Yahoo. Some of the players on this list are traditional sleeper types, but most are known names that Yahoo has mispriced for one reason or another. This […]

New Projections Feature – Best Build Projections
September 12th, 2023 | Projections

The nine-category and eight-category projection files have been updated to include a “Best Build” projections tab. This set of projections ranks each player using their value in their best build. For example, it takes Nikola Jokic’s value in his best build (punt threes) and compares it to the value of Giannis Antetokounmpo in his best […]
