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 […]

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 […]

Luka Doncic (Pick 4-9) Punt FT%: Doncic/James/Gobert/Holiday/McCollum – The ideal Luka punt FT% start. Average in steals, below average in turnovers, and above average everywhere else.
