Toronto Raptors – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: The best regular season in franchise history ended early in the playoffs against the Cavs but fantasy basketball is all about the first part of the season. Lowry and Derozan played less minutes than usual so their value was lower than expected but it created more room for other players to shine and they did. Jakob Poeltl, Delon Wright, Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet were all useful at some point during the season so they provided a great depth to fantasy teams and some promise for the future. Changes in the offseason Lost = DeMar DeRozan, […]

Philadelphia 76ers – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: It was their first season above 50 wins in almost 2 decades so obviously it was a great one. What’s more it was also very positive for fantasy teams – they had 2 emerging stars in Embiid and Simmons and 3 solid role-players in Covington, Redick and Saric. Amazingly it would have been much better had #1 draft pick in 2017 not forget how to play basketball which was like a cloud hanging above their heads and it diverted attention from otherwise very successful campaign. Hopefully this won’t happen again this year… Changes in the […]

New York Knicks – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: They had some decent contributors but most of them left in the offseason or will be gone soon via trade so the main story was Kristaps Porzingis, he started really well but unfortunately one serious knee injury derailed his two seasons at once… and Knicks didn’t even get a Top7 draft pick in 2018 as a consolation. It’s a shame but at least it made painfully obvious which direction they should take in 2018/19. Among all the debris there were some positive news, they clearly won the Carmelo trade [Kanter even provided solid value in […]

Brooklyn Nets – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: Two projected starting guards played a total of just 49 games but in their place emerged a great free agent pickup in Spencer Dinwiddie [at least for the first half of the season]. Other veterans like Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Allen Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll had solid rotation-level years but Nets didn’t have anybody in Top80 so they provided only depth for fantasy teams. Jarrett Allen was a nice surprise but he played below 20 minutes per game which hopefully will change in 2018-19… Changes in the offseason Lost = Quincy Acy, Tyler Zeller, Jeremy Lin Added […]

Boston Celtics – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: On one side there were serious injuries to their 2 stars, especially Hayward was unlucky in this regard [he fractured tibia in left leg and dislocated left ankle during the opener], but on the other side with heavy-hitters sidelined youngsters had a chance to step up. Jayson Tatum and Terry Rozier took advantage of this opportunity and delivered their first good season in 9-cat Roto. Changes in the offseason Lost = Shane Larkin Added = healthy Gordon Hayward, Robert Williams Projected Depth Chart: PG SG SF PF C Kyrie Irving Jaylen Brown Gordon Hayward Jayson […]

Milwaukee Bucks – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: Their core had a similar value to one achieved in 2016/17 but early in November they added another member to it – Eric Bledsoe. He finished the year as a Top40 player in 9-cat ranking so it turned out to be a great move for his value but it did hurt Malcolm Brogdon’s minutes and production. Also it was finally the year John Henson got a chance to start at center full time and he was decent so maybe it wasn’t the last one in his career. Changes in the offseason Lost = Jabari Parker, […]

Indiana Pacers – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: Myles Turner didn’t take a next step forward which many have hoped for but the rest of starting five outperformed their draft-day price in fantasy which made Pacers the most surprising and profitable team last year. And when you drafted Oladipo, you won a jackpot. All those success stories created a better than expected team in Indiana which turned out to be the toughest opponent LeBron James had to face in his another run to the finals. Changes in the offseason Lost = Lance Stephenson, Al Jefferson Added = Tyreke Evans, Doug McDermott, Kyle O’Quinn, […]

Detroit Pistons – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: The mid-season shake up left Detroit barren in terms of good fantasy production as Drummond was the only one in 9-cat roto Top100 after the All-Star Weekend. Even freshly-acquired ex-star Blake Griffin looked at times like a border-line rotation player in that format. On the positive side was an emergence of Reggie Bullock as a legit starter and Ish Smith filled admirably a gaping hole created at PG by Reggie Jackson’s injury-plagued season. Overall it was a disappointing season which is why they fired head coach and GM Stan Van Gundy. Changes in the offseason […]

Cleveland Cavaliers – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: LeBron James had a spectacular year [especially for someone his age] but all other players simply disappointed. In fact they were so bad that most of them were basically dumped [I’m talking about Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose]. New mid-season additions didn’t exactly shine either but there were at least a better fit next to their star so it kind of worked for a while. But overall Cavs’ players other than LeBron were a terrible investment last season . What will happen this year without him? Changes in the offseason Lost […]

Chicago Bulls – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: None of their players were above average in value calculated for 9-cat roto so the overall quality was very weak. But in that desert there were some blossoming prospects, Lauri Markkanen had a strong rookie season, Kris Dunn came back from the injury and he was way more productive than in Minnesota and Bobby Portis took advantage of more minutes without Mirotic [who he punched in the face before the season so he kind of created that opportunity]. Also Denzel Valentine and Justin Holiday had their temporary moments of relevance so Bulls have a lot […]
