23/24 Jan. 14 Box Score Analysis (5 Games)
January 15th, 2024 | Box Score Analysis

Nick Richards: At this point, it’s hard to consider Richards a must-hold even though we still don’t have a clear timeline for Mark Williams. The minutes have been fine most nights, but the production continues to be mediocre. Richards has only been a back-end option lately despite playing around 29 MPG. Over the last month, he’s […]

January 13th, 2024 | Pickups

Cam Whitmore – Whitmore is coming off a dud against the lowly Pistons, but his performance in the five games leading up to the off-night makes him worth a look in 14+ team leagues. Over those five games, the rookie managed an impressive 12.2 PPG on 53.5 FG%, 1.6 3PG, 3.6 RPG, and 1.6 SPG in […]

January 10th, 2024 | Box Score Analysis

Donte DiVincenzo (Hold): Hold for now. The minutes have been scary in two of the last three games, but that was due to the Knicks being on the right side of a blowout in both. When the Knicks are in a tight one, DiVincenzo should be in the 26 MPG range which is enough to […]

23/24 Jan. 7 Box Score Analysis (9 Games)
January 8th, 2024 | Box Score Analysis

Jaden Ivey (Pick Up): Cunningham went down with a knee injury that is going to cost him at least Tuesday’s game against the Kings. Given that Cade is being ruled out a day in advance, it’s very likely that he will end up missing more than just one game. Ivey will be the biggest beneficiary of […]

23/24 Week 12 Pickups
January 6th, 2024 | Rankings

Standard League Low-end Adds Kelly Olynyk – Olynyk’s role and minutes continue to be inconsistent. However, by the end of each week, his overall numbers tend to look pretty solid. Over the last month, the Canadian has been a top-100 option thanks to some good work in rebounds, assists, and steals, and some very stellar efficiency […]

23/24 Jan. 3 Box Score Analysis (12 Games)
January 4th, 2024 | Box Score Analysis

Jakob Poeltl: It may be time to get excited. Poeltl has now played minutes in the mid-30s in each of the Raptors’ two games since the Anunoby trade. With the Raptors now having more spacing, which makes it easier to play Big Yak, it’s very possible that the solid minutes stick. If Poeltl is even a […]

January 2nd, 2024 | Box Score Analysis

Raptors’ New Rotation: Both Quickley and Barrett looked solid in their Raptors debut. Quickley should start going forward and is a great bet for 30+ MPG the rest of the way. He would have landed in that range last night if it weren’t for some foul trouble. The point guard picked up his fourth foul midway […]

23/24 Dec. 31 Box Score Analysis (6 Games)
January 1st, 2024 | Box Score Analysis

Cam Thomas: Thomas is now droppable in 12-team leagues, although you’ll want to try to trade him first. It’s possible that someone in your league gets fooled by the 22.3 PPG. If you can get a clear long-term 12-team piece, that should end up as a solid move because Thomas is unlikely to end up […]

23/24 Week 11 Pickups
December 29th, 2023 | Pickups

Standard League Low-end Adds Jaden Ivey – Ivey is currently starting and playing major minutes. Since being promoted to the starting lineup five games ago, he’s played 32.0 MPG. The extra run has allowed him to average an impressive 18.6 PPG, 1.6 3PG, 6.4 RPG, 5.2 APG, 1.2 SPG, and 1.2 BPG. He won’t continue to […]

23/24 Boxing Day Box Score Analysis (9 Games)
December 27th, 2023 | Box Score Analysis

Ausar Thompson (Drop): At this point, he can’t be stashed in H2H leagues unless you play in a very deep league. In 12- and 14-team leagues, having Ausar on your roster is like playing a man down. Things might get better when (if?) the Pistons finally get their win, but probably not significantly better. Thompson […]

23/24 Week 10 Pickups
December 22nd, 2023 | Pickups

Standard League Low-end Adds Derrick Jones – The Mavericks’ outstanding schedule during the early parts of Week 10 makes Jones a strong short-term add in 12-team leagues. He may not be useful in two weeks, but as far as low-end options go, it’s going to be hard to do better than Jones over the first few […]

December 21st, 2023 | Box Score Analysis

Bruce Brown: Brown is in the midst of a very quiet stretch after putting up some top-100 numbers in the middle of November and in early December, although his last couple of duds have been due to blowouts. In 10-team leagues, he’s a drop. He’s now producing borderline top-125 numbers which puts him in the streaming […]

This is a doozy. Below is an analysis that looks at the lines of every player currently ranked inside of the top 100 in nine-category leagues and some notable players currently ranked outside of the top 100. It highlights numbers in each line that are out of line with preseason expectations and discusses whether or […]

23/24 Week 9 Pickups
December 15th, 2023 | Pickups

Standard League (12 Team) Strong Adds Caris LeVert – LeVert is your top add this week. With both Darius Garland and Evan Mobley out for the long term, LeVert is likely going to step into a high-usage 35 MPG role. Expect some very nice numbers in points, threes, assists, and steals. Given what LeVert has […]
