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 […]

San Antonio Spurs – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: Kawhi’s injury was the main event of the season but that disappointment overshadowed some nice stories. LaMarcus Aldridge had a great season and quite similar to what he did in his best days in Portland, Kyle Anderson filled the hole at SF admirably which resulted in a new contract with the Grizzlies, Rudy Gay came back from serious injury in a stronger way than anticipated and Dejounte Murray had a really promising second half of the season. Changes in the offseason Lost = Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson, Tony Parker Added = DeMar DeRozan, […]

New Orleans Pelicans – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: Outside of one unlucky and serious injury which happened to Cousins they were a fantasy gold mine. Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday and E’Twaun Moore had career-best years, Mirotic joined the party mid-season for a really strong finish and even Rajon Rondo managed to have a solid season. It’s no wonder they finally reached a second round of the playoffs but how much of this positive outlook will carry over to 2018/19? Changes in the offseason Lost = DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo, Dante Cunningham Added = Elfrid Payton, Julius Randle, Jahlil Okafor Projected Depth Chart: PG […]

Memphis Grizzlies – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: In a word, injuries. There were so many of them it’s easier to mention players who were healthy – Dillon Brooks. That’s the end of the list! Marc Gasol and Jarell Martin were somewhat healthy [they both played 73 games] but everybody else missed a size-able part of the season. What’s worse, even if we ignore problem of games played the averages were also a disappointment because almost everybody played worse than in 2016/17. The only positive news was a strong 7-game finish from MarShon Brooks and a great comeback season from Tyreke Evans… but […]

Houston Rockets – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: 2 main stars aligned very nicely and they revealed a third one in Capela which resulted in a great season for the team but one thing is notable for fantasy purposes – all of the role-players finished lower than in previous season. Rockets simply became a big three and not much else so you should probably temper your expectations for their wings not named Harden [if you had any]. Changes in the offseason Lost = Trevor Ariza Luc Mbah a Moute Added = Carmelo Anthony, James Ennis, M.Carter-Williams, I.Hartenstein, Marquese Chriss, Brandon Knight Projected Depth […]

Dallas Mavericks – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: Mavs had 4 players in the Top150 of 9-cat Roto but the best of them was 39 years old Dirk which is very telling how their season went. Barnes’ value slipped, Matthews stayed on the fringes of rotation in that format, rookie Dennis Smith struggled, Seth Curry didn’t play a single game for them and do you even remember the Noel era in Dallas? The only positive news was some solid contributions from the bench [Yogi Ferrell, Dwight Powell] and that all that misery ended up with a high draft pick in the 2018 draft. […]

Washington Wizards – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: The biggest story on this team was collapse in value for multiple long-time starters. John Wall, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat simply disappointed their GMs last year and while it could be just unlucky fluke for Wall because of injuries, it’s probably close to the end in fantasy spotlight for the other two players. There were no big positive surprises in Washington but it’s worth mentioning temporary relevance of Kelly Oubre and Tomas Satoransky. Changes in the offseason: Lost = Marcin Gortat, Mike Scott, Tim Frazier. Added = Dwight Howard, Austin Rivers, Jeff Green, Troy […]

Orlando Magic – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: Very disappointing year, they had only three players in 9-cat Top150… and all of them missed around 24 games. Some role players had their temporary relevance but overall that was simply a lost season for fantasy GMs who hoped for hidden value in Orlando. It means that it can’t be any worse this year, right? Changes in the offseason: Lost = Bismack Biyombo, Shelvin Mack Added = Mohamed Bamba, Jerian Grant, Jarell Martin, Timofey Mozgov, Melvin Frazier Jr. New Head Coach Steve Clifford. Am I the only one who finds it weird that team deep […]

Miami Heat – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: Josh Richardson’s breakout year and solid contributions from backup centers were on the positive side but it was overshadowed by struggles from the rest of starting lineup. Dragic fell off a cliff, Waiters was a pure bust and James Johnson simply couldn’t replicate his breakout season from the previous year. On top of that their best fantasy player Hassan Whiteside missed a lot of games and did not see eye to eye with the coach so he dipped as well. Overall that was a massive regression and all the nice memories from 2016/17 faded away. […]

Charlotte Hornets – Fantasy Team Preview for 2018/19

Fantasy Review For 2017/18 Season: Everybody relevant disappointed with lower fantasy value in Roto than projected before the season so it’s no wonder they changed a head coach to mix things up. James Borrego is an unknown in terms of tendencies so it’s kind of impossible to predict what he will do with this opportunity but one have to assume some players will bounce back by the regression to the mean alone… Especially when they got rid of Dwight Howard who became a scapegoat for whatever happened there. Changes in the offseason: Lost = Dwight Howard Added = head coach […]
