NBA Fantasy League Week 7: Risers And Divers

I thought, since the fine folks at Roto Analysis did a column for the league this week about risers and divers (about players), I would do a little bit here about risers and divers in the league.

Then I realized there’s only one significant riser, and only one significant diver in the entire league. The significant riser is Lee Russakoff’s Please Advise. He’s made an unheard of number of roster moves, and put his team in position to win the whole damn thing, trailing Pat Gallen’s The Verticoli by only six points. I wrote last week how much I despise Gallen’s hustle act, and you can be sure I’d love to see him fall. As much as I despise Russakoff, I despise Gallen even more.

But what fun is writing about people doing well? No fun at all.

Instead, I’m going to focus on a man who has watched the bottom fall out, after talking a whole bunch of trash. That man? CraneKicker. That team? Anthony Mason Haircut. A front-runner for most of the season, CK often bragged that he could do no wrong. The guy thought he was Kevlar. As it turns out, he couldn’t survive everything. After an injury to center Al Horford, CK’s team has dropped from first to seventh, and from over 100 points to 78.5. To put this in perspective, the Atlanta Hawks are 11-6 since Horford’s injury, and have fallen only one position (3rd to 4th) in the Eastern Conference. Anthony Mason Haircut proved itself as a team much like a house of cards, but made out of things much flimsier than cards. I don’t know what’s flimsier than cards. It’s almost like the team was a HOUSE OF PAPER.

Scram, CK. Yes, my team sits at 13th out of 14 teams. I don’t know what to say. I’m looking at an 8th place finish after Z-Bo comes back from injury though.

Now, on to the real analysis.

(please note that MATT wrote this entire piece, but I refuse to leave MOE out of the mentions, because he’s named MOE, which is awesome.)

RISERS AND DIVERS

Obviously Lin-sanity has captured much of the nation’s attention regarding the NBA. Who else, though, is having an upswing of late? And who is on the decline in recent weeks as we reach the midpoint of the season? Here are some guys who are shooting up or down the rankings due to their recent performance:

RISERS

1. Jeremy Lin

Let me preface this by saying Lin has moved up in everybody’s rankings for obvious reasons. His late-game heroics have been incredible, and should definitely be credited with the Knicks’ turnaround. Despite this “greatness” in the public eye, I’m still skeptical about his fantasy value. Lin has turned the ball over at a league-high rate since becoming a starter, and won’t be draining many threes (unless the clock is running out). In turnovers alone, he will have a negative value the same way Dwight Howard or Blake Griffin do at the free throw line. Lin’s points and assists have been incredible, but with Carmelo back he will surely be shooting less than the 19.5 field goals attempted a game in his first six starts. When Baron Davis comes back, the 39.7 minutes a game he has been getting should drop as well. In the end, while I am definitely in on Lin for his real-life value with the Knicks, he will lead your team in one category (assists) but hold you back just as much in another (turnovers). He is a hot commodity in every league, and I would sell high on him for that exact reason.

2. Nikola Pekovic

If I told you a player on the Timberwolves was averaging 16.6 points and 10.5 rebounds in February to go with a 62% field goal percentage, you may think Kevin Love has been shooting less the last couple games. Well, Love is a top five player for a reason, and is averaging much more than 16 and 10. For Nikola Pekovic, though, I’ll take it. He was an efficient per-minute player in a limited bench role earlier in the season, but has taken his new playing time by the reins and is flat out producing. While he will not provide many blocks for a big man, his point and rebound production to go with his solid percentages and acceptable free throw shooting make him a must pickup in any league where he is still available.

3. Joakim Noah

Noah started off slow. Really slow–as in average 8 points a game until two weeks ago slow. In his last seven games, however, he has looked like a new player, with 14.4 points and 10.7 rebounds per game over that time period. Like Pekovic, he will give you production in points, rebounds, field goal percentage, and won’t kill you in free throws. He has more of a pedigree to keep this performance up and should be able to revert from his early-season performance to the solid fantasy contributor he has been for his whole career.

4. Gordon Hayward

He may not jump out at you from a box score, but Hayward does all the little things, and well. Still 21, the youngster is having the best month of his NBA career with 14.4 points a game on 56% shooting. Aside from rebound and threes, he can do everything else; he will get you assists, steals, blocks, and free throws, while limiting his turnovers to a very low rate. You could do much worse at a shallow SG position (he’s also eligible at SF) this year, and is a guy I like to keep his performance up if the minutes are there.

5. DeMarcus Cousins

There may not be a more infuriating, inconsistent player around the league than Cousins. When focused and determined, he can be one of the best centers in the league. Over his past six games, Cousins has been that guy, with 22 points and 14.2 rebounds a game. While he does turn the ball over a little too much, he will block and steal just as many times on the defensive end. The potential is there for him to be a top five center in this league, and for now, just ride him while he’s hot.

6. Drew Gooden

When a journeyman like Gooden signed a 5-year, $32 Million contract, I’m not going to lie that I just laughed at the Bucks stupidity. With star Andrew Bogut now out, Gooden has done his best to impress me. He’s a solid overall player, who will fill all the “big-man” stats up for you. His shooting percentages may plunge as defenses continue to adjust to the Bucks’ new offense, but as long as Bogut is out, Gooden is a solid fantasy option in almost any league or format.

DIVERS

1. Jeff Teague

When he exceeded expectations to move from a “sleeper” to a legitimately useful fantasy player to start the season, Teague drew a lot of hype in fantasy circles. He has reverted to what made him the “sleeper” in the first place in recent weeks, with a lack of assists in recent weeks that just kills you at the point guard position. In February, he is averaging only 3.3 assists, and shooting below 43% from the field. While he is still a solid producer of three pointers and steals, I’m becoming very skeptical of his long-term value.

2. Nene

While he is definitely the first NBA player who could have his name pass for a European soccer superstar, Nene has looked like he actually wants to head over to the pitch to start off the season. He was clearly not in great shape over the offseason, and has not been able to keep up with the scorching tempo the Nuggets play at. With the depth around him, his minutes are down, and while the skills are there to be one of the most efficient big men in the league, I doubt he will perform like that this season.  He has been dinged up recently, and is shooting at his worst percentages from the field and from the free throw line since 2007.

3. Mo Williams

After Chauncey Billups got injured, everybody assumed that Williams could effectively step into his role as a shooter. Mo has fallen short of expectations in his recent play, and I fear he will never be too effective off the ball, completely negating his fantasy value. Since Billups’ injury, Williams is shooting only 33% from the field! While he will definitely supply threes and free throws, the assists will not be there with CP3 manning the point, the steals and blocks are completely invisible, and the points will not be high enough to make up for his other deficiencies.

4. Samuel Dalembert

Dalembert’s a complete stiff. And while that doesn’t matter for his fantasy value, per say, it does affect a lot of what he does on the court. While his blocks created some early season hype, he has fallen off from being fantasy relevant by posting 4 points and 5.8 rebounds a game in February. A one-category pseudo-stud just isn’t worth owning in any format.

5. Brandon Jennings

When a player has a breakout year, fantasy owners may just try to trade for that player blindly, basing their reasoning off of the hype surrounding him. While I do think Jennings has taken strides this year, his recent play suggests the inconsistency that haunted him his first two seasons in the NBA may still be daunting. He will never be a great true shooter, limiting his fantasy potential for threes and field goal percentage. Because he puts up so many shots (over 16 a game!), his performance will hold back your team’s even more. Jennings is doing a lot of things well this season, with career highs in points, steals, threes, and field goal percentage, and his lowest turnover margin ever. Despite these positives, I would still be very cautious with him going forward in any league where shooting percentages are a factor.

6. Mario Chalmers

I’ve always liked Chalmers for fantasy, but his value has slipped this year, and not just because of injury. While he ranks quite highly on the player rater, his turnovers have been rising as his assists are dropping. His steals are merely average for a PG, and while he has been shooting very efficiently and knocks down a ton of threes, the 2.5 assists he is averaging in February point to a swoon that could continue throughout the second half of the season.

The NBA Fantasy League Week 3 Wrap-Up: Time To Shine

Don’t be fooled, the title of this is not about my team shining. My team is a disaster. It’s about the write up on the league from @RotoAnalysis this week.

If the title of this post was about my team, it would be called We Suck, And We’re Only Getting Worse. Of course, Free Boosie trades for Chris Paul, and Chris Paul gets hurt. Free Boosie trades Jrue Holiday, and he has his best game of the season. Don’t even look at my roster right now. I’m serious, please don’t look. I swear my only goal is not finishing last. IN MY OWN LEAGUE.

Anthony Mason Haircut finally had a down week, after the injury to Al Horford. The GM of the team, CraneKicker, swore to me in a drunken stupor that the team would be fine. When I say, “he swore to me,” I mean he texted me the words “we’re just chillin’ bro.”

General Manager of the ZWR Penguins, Zoo With Roy is now considered the Al Davis of the league. Not dead Al Davis, but the alive Al Davis toward the end. Crazy old man Al Davis. He’s somewhere between Jerry Jones and Al Davis. Nobody likes him.

And Pat Gallen’s team, The Verticoli surge into first place. Pat swore to me in a drunken stupor that his goal, above all other life goals, was to finish in first place in this league. Never has someone wanted an autographed Mo Speights jersey so much.

All other GM’s in the league swore something to me in drunken stupors, I’ll have those quotes next week. Except for the GM of Team Reese, who still has not been seen around the office. Now, on to the real analysis …

Matt and Moe are two of the co-founding fantasy experts of RotoAnalysis.com. You can follow them @KidCotti21 and@MoeProblems respectively, or their site @RotoAnalysis.

Time To Shine

Each NBA season, players who were originally backups are thrust are into a starting job and given opportunities to shine. Some, like Ryan Anderson, seize their opportunity and prove their worth in the NBA while others, like Sebastian Telfair, continually prove they don’t have what it takes to compete at the highest level. One of the keys to running a successful fantasy franchise is being the first to see those who will potentially get an opportunity to start, and then singling out those who will capitalize once given that opportunity. Some players have already taken that opportunity and seized it, like the aforementioned Ryan Anderson or even Marreese “Free Boosie” Speights. To find the next Ryan Anderson, Matt and Moe are going to give their picks for what’s left of this year’s potential “Backup Breakouts”:

Honorable mention: J.J. Hickson, Kemba Walker, Kawhi Leonard, Brandon Rush, Klay Thompson, Patrick Patterson, Kenneth Faried,

Nicolas Batum (94.3% owned) Get Rid of Pinky

Yeah, I know Batum’s kind of a big name, but he does come off the bench, and I just want to elaborate on how great he is for fantasy. Nicolas Batum is not a great basketball player—he just does a lot of things well that make him perfect for fantasy. He shoots from 3 a ton. He’s aggressive on D to get steals and blocks. He’s outstanding at the free throw line. While he may not deliver top-notch numbers in the points, rebounds, and assists categories, Batum is an excellent fantasy option for any team out there.

Baron Davis (22% owned) Fire Millen

Baron “B-Diddy” Davis was actually a backup breakout himself earlier in his career, from his sophomore to rookie season. However, since his time at Charlotte, Davis has bounced around on five teams before eventually landing on the Knicks. Davis’ short-stayed welcomes were rarely due to talent, but mostly due to his personality issues and lack of effort. Baro,n for once in his life is getting paid a small amount of money, at least on the cap, to play basketball in a supporting role rather than as a star. You can say what you want about Baron Davis, but there’s no arguing that he is a competitor of the highest level, and one who loves to feed off the crowd. There’s no greater crowd in the world than Knicks’ fans at Madison Square Garden, and I think once Baron comes back he’ll be able to put up something along his career line of 42% shooting from the field with 32% from 3, and maybe even over his career average of 7 assists per game if he actually gets the starting job. Additionally, the players in front of him are Tony Douglas and Iman Shumpert; Douglas is really more of a combo guard and not a true 1, and Iman Shumpert is really more of a 2 guard, putting up a Player Efficiency Rating of over 24 as a 2 (a top 3 SG in the NBA so far this season) and a Player Efficiency Rating of under 3 as a point guard (bottom 3 in the NBA so far this season). Call me a homer, but I think Baron Davis is motivated to play for a good team for once in his career, and will bring it night in and night out under the lights of MSG with Carmelo and Amar’e.

Markieff Morris (17.3% owned) Free Boosie

At Kansas, his brother Marcus (currently sitting at literally last place on the ESPN player rater) outshone him as their go-to option on offense. In the NBA, however, it has been Markieff who has adjusted to the game at a much better pace. He has improved his three point shot dramatically, and is knocking down 1.3 a game at a 51.6% clip. What’s impressive is that he is able to do it while supplying all the other stats you need out of a PF, averaging 17-10-2 per 40 minutes, limited turnovers, and decent steals and blocks. This guy is the real deal; the Suns are realizing it by starting him in their most recent game against the Knicks, and so should fantasy owners.

James Johnson (3.0% owned) Get Rid of Pinky

It feels odd to like somebody who averages almost as many fouls per game as points, but James Johnson is another example of a guy who could really help out any fantasy team in a rotisserie format. In only 22 minutes/game, he is producing 1.5 blocks and 1.2 steals. By comparison, Paul Pierce is averaging 0.8 steals and 0.2 blocks in his 33 minutes/game of playing time. One must look past the lack of points and see Johnson as a true contributor for fantasy who would be an even bigger help with more playing time, especially in the defensive categories.

Goran Dragic (0.5% owned) BIG HAIR little shorts

Dragic has started two games this year, both against the Thunder, facing Russell Westbrook, one of the best point guards in the league. In the two games, he averaged 15 points, 9.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.5 steals. Yeah. In other games, his impact has been minimal, but there is a lot of potential here if he gets a starting job and Dragic is definitely worth grabbing to store in deeper leagues. Dragic will be a solid producer of points and rebounds, will shoot plenty of 3s, and supply the assists and steals you need at the PG position. Obviously Steve Nash is ahead of him on the depth chart, but Nash isn’t getting any younger. These might be more long-term guys, but in most leagues I recommend that you be the 1% to take a shot on Goran Dragic and Jon Leuer; it could pay large dividends on just a very small risk.

Anthony Randolph (0% owned) FA

I don’t think there’s a player in the NBA who’s been more royally screwed so far in his career than Anthony Randolph. To argue why Randolph was going to be a backup breakout, I was prepared to launch into a physical-tools based argument (he’s a 6’11” guy with a 7’3” wingspan who is STILL only 22) but I realized that I don’t even need to do that–his stats say it all for me. In his young career, Randolph has averaged 17.8 Minutes/Game with 8.6 Points, 5.2 Rebound, 1.14 Blocks, .7 Steals, all on 46% shooting from the field and an awesome 74.4% shooting from the line. For comparison’s sake, Al Jefferson is currently sitting at 13th among PF’s on ESPN’s player rater, and if Anthony Randolph is given a chance to start and plays up to his per-minute stats in, say, 35 minutes per game, he’d have better rebounding numbers than Jefferson (10.2 vs 9.3), better assists numbers (1.7 vs 1.6), significantly better steals (1.4 vs 0.9), better blocks (2.2 vs 1.8) better FT% (74.4% vs 70.3%) and just slightly worse points (16.9 vs 18.0) and only a worse FG% (46% vs 48%). If I told you that you could have Al Jefferson statistically, only slightly better, if a guy could beat out Michael Beasley and Wesley Johnson for a job, you’d take a shot on him too. I’m not saying run out and pick up Randolph, I’m just saying that it makes no sense that a player with this much physical upside and this much production so far doesn’t have a starting job on a team that is lacking in the bigs department. Look for Randolph to make an impact sometime this season if there’s any common sense in the NBA (well, I guess that’s a big “If”).

Jon Leuer (0.8% owned) FA

Wisconsin was a dangerously efficient team last year, but who new Leuer could bring that kind of ball to the NBA? The Bucks have moved him up the depth chart, and he has preformed with top-notch percentages, good blocks, and some points & boards. He has an extremely good mid-range game, shooting 65% from 10-15 feet from the basket so far this season. Leuer isn’t going to hit many threes, but is a solid add in leagues as deep as this one.

Ian Mahinmi (1% owned) Dino Radja

I was in shock when I saw that Ian Mahinmi was owned in the SpikeEskin.com league–I guess I underestimated the depth and intelligence of the league. After losing Tyson Chandler in the off-season to the Knicks, the Mavericks came into the season with solely Brendan Haywood slotted to start at the 5. Haywood is more or less a known quantity as a guy who has had injury issues, is a bad rebounder, a relatively efficient scorer, but overall nothing special, and is a below average center with a bad contract. Mahinmi is the only other true center on the roster, which by default makes him an interesting backup breakout candidate. Going into this year, in the limited time Mahinmi received, he was a very efficient player from the field and the line, as well as a way above average per-minute production from the field, albeit in small sample sizes. However, this season he’s been the pseudo-starter for a lot of the season, playing just .1 minutes per game less than Haywood so far. Mahinmi has thrived, shooting 65.6% from the field and 61.7% from the line with 7.8 points per game, .5 blocks, .6 steals and most importantly 5.4 rebounds to show for it. Obviously his field goal percentage will drop, but if given a normal workload, say, 30 minutes per game, Mahinmi could be a more than adequate starting center for fantasy. With Haywood’s injury history, that could happen very soon.

DEEP, DEEP CANDIDATE

Gustavo Ayon (0% owned)  FA

“Who the **** is that?” I’m sure most (or all) of you are wondering? Well, at the most basic level, Gustavo Ayon is a Mexican dude on the Hornets who they got from the Spanish ACB League. Digging a little deeper, however, Ayon was one of the more efficient players in the entire world last year, shooting 67% on two point shots in the Spanish ACB. Kevin Pelton, writer for BasketballProspectus.com and friend of RotoAnalysis.com, tweeted out before the season that Ayon’s 67% was the 2nd highest in the entire Basketball Prospectus website other than Marc Gasol, who shot 68% there once. That in itself got my attention, and Ayon’s transition to NBA basketball has also peaked my curiosity. In 7 games this season, Ayon has averaged 10.3 minutes per game, with 4.3 points on 70.6% shooting from the field with 66.6% shooting from the line, 2.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists, .7 blocks, and .6 steals. Obviously his field goal percentage will come down, but if Ayon somehow got a bigger spot in the rotation I believe that he could be a major NBA and fantasy contributor in rebounds, blocks, points, and certainly the percentage categories, which is all you’re really looking for in a center. In front of Ayon on the depth chart is the oft-injured Chris Kaman and the pretty solid Emeka Okafor. As the season goes on, the Hornets will be close to last in the West, and should look towards the future by playing their younger players more. Hopefully, Ayon can grab some playing time and work towards contributing for fantasy owners.

The NBA Fantasy League Week 1 Wrap-Up: Big Hair, Small Points

#1 Dud Of The Week, Monta Ellis

Before we get to the breakdown from the Roto Analysis guys, some news and rumors to get you caught up on.

First, here are the standings after a full week of games:

That’s right, I’m in 12th place in my own league. Leave me alone about it. If I was winning my own league everyone would hate me anyway. After my free-agent pickup of Markieff Morris, the sky’s the limit. At least Josh McRoberts lasted a full week.

It’s unclear so far weather Zoo With Roy, GM and owner of the ZWR Penguins, is the Mark Cuban of the leave, a maverick who will change how the game is played and eventually win it all, or the Daniel Snyder of the league, out there to annoy the bejesus out of everyone. His current pursuit of Kyle Lowry is the talk of SE Fantasy. He’s also most likely to be the first owner that’s fined by the league.

Please Advise is said to be scouring the market for a shooting guard/small forward, with Manu Ginobli out for a month. I’m hearing talks of a deal with Anthony Mason Haircut, who grabbed Richard Jefferson off the waiver wire within seconds of Ginobli’s injury.

The Delco Dirtbags though publicly very supportive of Jimmer Fredette, have reportedly been quietly shopping the former BYU star. League sources say they’re looking for a “scrappy” guy who “plays the right way” and “hustles.”

Team Reese has yet to adjust their roster once this season. Inside sources say GM Ike Reese is “playing possum” with the rest of the league. Not too sure what that accomplishes.

And now for the real analysis. I can’t thank these guys enough. For any fantasy football, basketball or baseball information, please check out their site and podcast.

Matt and Moe are two of the co-founding fantasy experts of RotoAnalysis.com. You can follow them @KidCotti21 and@MoeProblems respectively, or their site @RotoAnalysis.

Standings: Looking Back and Looking Up

1st Place

“The Verticoli” got off to a great start behind who else but Kyle Lowry. Lowry has been an absolute stud to start the year; an underrated part to his game comprised mostly of assists is his FT%, which currently sits over 90% and has been a big reason why The Verticoli leads the league in that category. The Verticoli is also first in the league in 3 Pointers Made and Points, something Ryan Anderson has been a huge part of with 22 three pointers. The Magic big man ranks 4th overall on the ESPN player rater, and at this point stands ahead of his frontcourt-mate, Dwight Howard. While the standings will be changing every day, it is pretty impressive for this squad to be above the league average in nine of ten categories.

14th Place

“BIG HAIR little shorts” has been struggling with a couple of injuries, which will really set any team back in a sample size as small as the first week of the season. But with Paul Pierce back now and Eric Gordon coming back soon, it’s time for this team to get going. It’s also time to get Corey Maggette way out of that lineup. He’s killing this team, as well as any other he’s currently on, with his 28% FG, and is so low on the player rater that ESPN measures that he has hurt his owners’ teams by more than 4 points in the standings. Ranking as low as you do in assists, steals, A/TO, and FT%, this team absolutely must work on its guard play, and target a point guard via trade or free agency. Having Kemba Walker and Sundiata Gaines as your only PGs on the roster simply isn’t going to cut it with PG as deep as it is.

Studs Of The Week

Honorable Mention: Rajon Rondo, Jose Calderon, James Harden, Hedo Turkoglu, Tyson Chandler, Paul George, Spencer Hawes, Marcus Thornton, Boris Diaw, Markieff Morris, Mario Chalmers, Jason Terry, Andre Miller, Ben Gordon, MarShon Brooks, Norris Cole,

3. Ty Lawson (PG, Denver Nuggets) Narcoleptic E Snow Experience

Ty Lawson has clearly won the starting job over veteran Andre Miller in Denver by starting the year with a bang and being at least average in every skill the perfect point guard is supposed to have. Lawson scores, gets assists, shoots 3’s, and adds a few rebounds, all at an efficient rate. However, the skill that is really putting Lawson on the elite level is his game-changing speed, leading him to average 2.5 steals per game so far this season. I don’t think we can expect 2.5 steals per game, but upwards of 2 certainly seems possible with Lawson’s electric style of play.

2. Manu Ginobli (SG, San Antonio Spurs) Please Advise…

Manu must have heard about being ridiculously underdrafted in the SpikeEskin.com fantasy hoops league, because he started the season off playing with a chip on his shoulder, producing way above average numbers in every category besides blocks in a shockingly low 23.2 minutes per game. The best part about Manu’s season so far was his efficiency, shooting 59.2% from the field, 93.8% from the line, and a whopping 51.9% from 3. Manu would have obviously been a sell high candidate right now because every one of those percentages is going to come down, but unfortunately he broke his hand and will be out more than a month. At least for this week, Manu Ginobli looked well worth the draft pick. (James Anderson and Gary Neal would be the guys to target in his absence if desperate

1.Ryan Anderson (PF, Orlando Magic) The Verticoli

Ryan Anderson has always been a very good 3-point shooter, and a great per-minute player throughout his career, averaging 10.6 points and 5.5 rebounds in 22.3 minutes last season. However, before this season Anderson had never gotten the chance to really start because of blockages on the Magic by players ahead of him on the depth chart like Hedo Turkoglu and Brandon Bass. Before the start of this season, the Magic foolishly traded Brandon Bass for supposedly Dwight Howard’s friend Glen “Big Baby” Davis and gave him a relatively large contract in what is seemingly a vain effort to re-sign Dwight Howard. This trade left the door open for Anderson to start because he is blatantly a far superior player to Davis, and he’s flourished since game 1. Anderson will regress from the field and from beyond the arc (especially from beyond the arc, you can’t take 8.3 3-pointers per game), but for right now Ryan Anderson was the best value in any fantasy basketball league so far this season.

Duds Of The Week

Honorable Mention: Kyrie Irving, Andray Blatche, Marcin Gortat, Al Jefferson, Anderson Varejao, David Lee, Ed Davis, Aaron Afflalo, Richard Hamilton, Jameer Nelson, Stephen Jackson, Luis Scola, Demarcus Cousins, Zach Randolph, Wesley Johnson, Thaddeus Young

3. Tyreke Evans (PG, SG, Sacramento Kings) Anthony Mason Haircut

I really don’t like Tyreke Evans, and it’s not because he hates puppies or is mean to homeless people. I’m sure he’s a really nice guy, I just think he’s pretty bad at basketball. Evans is currently sitting on ESPN’s player rater as the 47th best point guard, and finished last season as the 34th best. There’s a reason I declared Tyreke the most overdrafted player in this league, as well as in most leagues, and that’s because he’s dreadfully overrated due to his rookie season. Sure, he’s got talent but Evans is always going to disappoint owners unless he goes in the 7th round or later rather than 4th or, god forbid, the 3rd round–like in this draft.

2. Josh Smith (PF, SF, Atlanta Hawks) Dino Radja

Josh Smith, or as I like to call him, “Josh Smiff”, had a horrific start to the season. He has shot 36.5% from the field, which is legitimately hard to do from the power forward position, and also converted only 54.5% of his opportunities at the charity stripe. Smith has even regressed in the rebounding category, averaging 1.5 less boards than last season and only managing to score 10 points per game. I expect Smith’s percentages to trend upwardly, and some of his awful performance can be attributed to some inflammation in his knee, but these stats are unacceptable for a guy who was taken as a 2nd round pick in this league.

1. Monta Ellis (PG, SG, Golden State Warriors) The Personal Fouls

Monta Ellis has been shockingly bad to start the season after being a somewhat surprising first round pick in the SpikeEskin.com fantasy basketball league. A lot of his issues, though, have come off the court. Ellis’ grandmother, to whom he was very close, passed away on Christmas Day, and on that same week that he received this sad news, Ellis was accused in a sexual harassment lawsuit. All of that is a lot to handle, and when that’s added on to the fact that Stephen Curry already missed time, putting more pressure on Ellis to carry the team, things just haven’t lined up for him so far. Ellis is a definite buy-low candidate and I expect him to vastly improve from his Week 1 performance.

Free Agents to Target

4. Tracy McGrady

Much like LT in football becoming a third down back, T-Mac has found his niche in a totally different position than what he played at the beginning of his career. The Hawks’ bench is as tin as Anthony Randolph, so McGrady will get plenty of minutes while being relatively efficient at rates that are worth owning in a league as deep as this one.

3. Shannon Brown

This is a pure upside pick, as he has not really looked in sync in the new Suns’ offense. I do think, however, that a lot of players that switched teams this off-season will be slow to adjust to their new teams, but will improve over the course of the season. Brown will definitely have his ups and downs, but should eventually be a good supplier of steals and 3PM, to go along with being a serviceable source in bot points and rebounds.

2. Josh Howard

While the younger, up-and-coming players are always the sexier picks near the end of drafts, it is often the underrated and forgotten veterans who can pick up the slack and truly bring in value. Josh Howard is a guy who has shown some energy early this season, and could be cracking the Jazz’s starting lineup for Raja Bell at any moment. Howard has gotten to the line at a phenomenal rate, and should provide a solid amount of steals, while struggling in FG% and 3PT shooting.

1. Robin Lopez

Yes, he’s done nothing since the first game of the season, but I think Robin Lopez can be a decent contributor in a 14-team league. He has always shot free throws well for a big man, and should be at least an average shot-blocker while getting his points and rebounds up. Lopez might not be the sexiest pickup, but he’s worth a look in leagues this deep.

Analysis Of The First Ever Spike Eskin Dot Com NBA Fantasy Draft

The Actual #SEFantasy League Trophy

All week, I was scared to death. I’d been getting private messages from Zoo With Roy suggesting there was no way he’d allow me to draft Jrue Holiday. Since he wouldn’t be around for the draft itself, he told me he had Jrue pre-ranked at #9.

I didn’t even know why, but this bothered me. Zoo got in my head. Was it even that important that I got Jrue Holiday? Was Zoo manipulating me?

So when he ended up with the second pick the draft, I was interested to see what he’d do. He didn’t take Holiday. I ended up with the 13th pick, and because it was a snake draft, I also had the 16th. I knew if I wanted Holiday, it’d have to be one of those picks. I reached, I admit it. I just needed to explain.

So, we’re lucky enough to have some Fantasy Basketball experts who will be with us all season long to do some analysis of our league.

Roto Analysis NBA Draft Wrap-Up

When it comes down to it, the draft is easily half of the season. In a league as deep as this one, there often won’t be a game-changing waiver-wire pickup to propel any team to victory, and hopefully there won’t be a one-sided traded that changes the playing field. Therefore, the add/drops and the roster moves can only account for so much of your success. Probably more than half of the season is already over; so let’s see how you guys have set yourselves up:

The Peak: Top 3 Pre-Season Teams

Fire Millen

Nothing crazy, just this team is filled with guys I like. Steph Curry is a stud in this format, shooting for great percentages, especially at the free throw line, only holding you back at turnovers. Paul George is in for a breakout year, and when analysts say players grow in the offseason, they don’t usually mean it like this; Paul George grew from 6’8 to 6’11 during the offseason reportedly. He and Collison will be part of a much-improved Pacer team that Fire Millen can ride to the glory land. Not to mention Blake, Gallinari, D-Lee, or Tyson Chandler. Plug Bogut into that UTIL spot and this is the team to beat.

Get Rid of Pinky

This is a really interesting team, because whether you meant to or not, you punted Rebounds and Blocks; literally, Zach Randolph is your only guy in the starting lineup who grabs more than 6.7 rebounds a game. With Channing Frye and Andrea Bargnani at the Center spots, that will help you dominate Points and 3Pt. By using both of your UTIL spots on guards to go with CP3 and the ridiculously under-drafted Tony Parker, this team should dominate the other 10 (of 12) categories.

Narcoleptic E Snow Experience

I think this team is far from perfect, but in a league with categories like these, it will be a pretty guard-driven league. Quite simply, this team just has the best guards. Deron Williams and John Wall are already stars, and I think Ty Lawson has a great shot to join them in an up-tempo Nuggets system this season. Greg Monroe is another of my favorite breakout candidates at your Center spot. The issue here is your forwards; I would look to trade one of the 5 Centers you have on your roster for help there, and this team should be very solid in a league as deep as this one.

No-Man’s Land

Free Boosie (Spike)

Since you didn’t fit quite into the bottom or the top, I figured I’d give you your own little section in the middle, Spike. While the Jrue Holiday pick was definitely questionable as to how early it was, there’s no denying that he’s a very good PG. This team has great balance, with no real holes other than 3 point shooting, and will put you in a solid position to win each week with Melo leading a bunch of underrated and often overlooked guys. Nicolas Batum, for example, is really underrated in this format; he’ll help out a little in every category. If Jrue continues to improve, and both Derrick Williams and Evan Turner warrant their #2 draft pick status, this could be a championship-caliber squad. However, if those average guys like Afflalo, Wesley Matthews, and Batum regress, and Stephen Jackson goes legitimately crazy, this team could suffer some bad defeats.

The Dregs: Bottom 3 Pre-Season Teams

Metta World Domination

This could have been a great, great team, no doubt about it. That is, if we rewound the clock to 2006. Sure, Andrew Bynum would just be in high school, but look at the rest of this squad: Camby, Kobe, Billups, Dirk, Elton Brand, Vince Carter, J-Rich. These guys used to be absolute studs. (Key word: Used.) Now most of them are aging vets with knee troubles. Don’t see much upside for this team in 2011.

Team Reese

First and foremost, don’t be that guy whose team name is “team [insert name].” You and “Team Sweeney” have gotta get on that ASAP. Second, sorry about Brook Lopez. Always frustrating to draft a guy and have him get injured before the season even starts; stuff happens. I like the Amar’e/Gasol picks to start things off, but your draft was quickly derailed with no impact guards (The Mavs’ backcourt should take a step back this year, and while Ray Allen is solid, he’s no more than an above average 3rd guard in this league format.)

ZWR Penguins

Not gonna lie man, your logo is pretty cool. Starting Troy Murphy and Samuel Dalembert in your Center spots? Not as cool. In any 2 C league (especially a 14-teamer), I try to lock in at least one good big early; that’s where the downfall of your team began. Then, I think you just looked too young on the draft board. Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving, Bismack Biyombo and Tristan Thompson will all be good NBA players, but it might not be for a couple of years. While Durant is obviously incredible, I don’t really see the frontcourt pieces for this team to compete.

5 Best Picks

5. Paul Millsap (PF, Jazz) 56th overall

Paul Millsap is a shockingly well-rounded player. Discarding his stats from beyond the arc, Millsap is at least serviceable in every category, and is even one of the top PFs in steals and FG% every year, two stats that are often overlooked in comparison to the “sexier” points and rebounds. Millsap should have gone 10-15 picks higher and this early in the draft, that is extremely significant.

4. Tyler Hansbrough (PF, Pacers) 132nd overall
This pains me to say as a die-hard Duke fan, but Tyler Hansbrough seems poised for a break-out season this year. On a per-minute basis, Hansbrough was great in 2010-2011 (5.2 rebounds and 11 points in 21.9 minutes per game), and if he can get himself up to 25-30 minutes, Hansbrough could easily be a top 15 power forward this season.

3. Tony Parker (PG, Spurs) 88th overall

Tony Parker is often associated with the word “Sexy” but that’s certainly not because of his skill set. Parker frequently becomes underrated because of the boredom associated with the type of style he plays. In the mind of some fantasy owners, it’s way more fun to take a shot on Ricky Rubio (or in this case Jarrett Jack and Rodney Stuckey) than to get the same old stats from Tony Parker. However, 9 times out of 10 at the end of the season, Parker will finish with the same amazing shooting percentage he always does, the same great assists, the same above average steals and the same solid amount of points. Taking Tony Parker isn’t the sexiest thing in the world, but it will pay big dividends for your fantasy team in the end and he probably should have gone a full round or so higher than this.

2. Manu Ginobli (SG, Spurs) 57th overall

Maybe people in this draft just really hate the Spurs, but I literally can’t find something not to like about Manu Ginobli. I mean, what’s more loveable than a short balding guy who’s competing against glorified Adonis-es, c’mon people, it’s always fun to root for the underdog. From a statistical perspective, Manu brings everything you would want and more, draining 3’s, shooting great from the line and finishing 16th overall on ESPN’s player rater last season. Yeah, he should decline a little, but Manu is still deserving of a top 30 pick; getting him at 57 was an absolute steal.

1. Ray Allen (SG, Celtics) 95th overall

I know Ray Allen is old, but it makes NO sense for him to fall so far in this draft. Ray Allen is as well-rounded as Manu Ginobli–he has a good field goal percentage, is a great free throw shooter, is one of the best 3 point shooters overall in the league, and gets an above average amount of assists, steals and points. His only below average stat is blocks, and he’s still not awful at that for a shooting guard. Allen finished 28th on ESPN’s player rater last season (one spot behind Deron Williams, who was taken 86 spots ahead of him) and although there should be a slight decline in Allen’s skills, he’ll likely still be a top 40 to 45 player this season. Taking players like Mike Conley, Darren Collison, Jarret Jack and Rodney Stuckey to play at the same “Guard” spot over Ray Allen is tantamount to fantasy hoops blasphemy. May Jesus Stuttlesworth bring forgiveness onto all of you for this insane under-draft.

5 Worst Picks

5. Jrue Holliday (PG, 76ers) 16th overall

Many writers would have disliked this pick more, but I happen to be a gigantic Jrue Holliday fan so it is only a mild travesty to have taken him this high. Sure, Holliday is physically talented and has high upside, but taking him over John Wall, Pau Gasol, and Blake Griffin is still pretty insane, even for the giant 76ers fan as I know Spike is.

4. Chauncey Billups (PG, Clippers) 42nd overall

Chauncey Billups is on a team with Chris Paul, Mo Williams, and Eric Bledsoe. Yeah, he will probably play the 2 guard a decent amount but I would bet he plays around 25 minutes a game. His assists will drop in that role, leaving him mainly as a 3 point threat. Taking him in the 3rd round when he is probably behind even the Tony Parker / Ricky Rubio tier (both of whom were taken more than 40 picks later in the draft) is pretty absurd.

3. Andrea Bargnani (C, PF, Raptors) 53rd overall

Andrea Bargnani shoots for a horrible percentage for a center, is an awful rebounder, gets very few blocks and steals, but is good at the most overrated stat in fantasy: scoring. Sure, he makes some treys, and is a high-volume scorer, but he is at such a disadvantage in so many other categories that taking him over players like Paul Millsap, Manu Ginobli, or Luol Deng makes no sense. Even if “Get Rid of Pinky” wanted a center, Roy Hibbert, JaVale McGee, and Tyson Chandler were all still available and all 3 of those are significantly better options than Bargnani for a well-rounded squad.

2. Jarrett Jack (PG, Hornets) 87th overall

I know Jarrett Jack is the Hornets’ starting point guard now that CP3 is gone, but last year in 20.7 minutes he averaged 0.4 3 Pointers Made, 2.1 Rebounds, 2.9 Assists, 0.7 Steals and 8.9 Points per game. If those are extrapolated over a 35 minute per game pace that’s .7 3 Pointers Made, 3.7 Rebounds, 5.1 Assists, 1.2 Steals and 15.5 points per game. So, in a best-case scenario assuming Jack’s weaknesses don’t get exposed due to more playing time, he’ll still have worse stats than Tony Parker who went one pick after him and shot over 15% better from the floor. Jack probably should have gone in the 130-140 pick range, around where the similarly skilled guard George Hill was drafted.

1. Tyreke Evans (PG, SG, Kings) 31st overall

Tyreke Evans holds a name cache far greater than the skills he actually possesses. Last year, Evans finished 34th on the ESPN player rater among point guards, and in this draft he was taken 31st overall! Evans’ problems are twofold: 1) His shooting percentage is godawful, shooting under 41% from the field. That’s not the worst part though; Tyreke Evans actually shot 29.4 percent on 2-pointers outside of 3 feet last season. So, outside of easy layups Evans shot under 30% from the field. That’s legitimately hard to do. 2) He’s not elite at one category. Swallowing an awful shooting percentage would be okay if he had Rajon Rondo-like assists ability, but the truth is he’s really sub par at almost every category. Additionally, the caliber of point guard, not to mention other positions, was through the roof at that point in the draft with significantly more talented players Kyle Lowry and Ty Lawson both being taken directly after Tyreke. I don’t want to be rude to Anthony Mason Haircut (great name, by the way) but I probably would have taken Tyreke Evans somewhere in the 80-90 pick range at best, and that’s solely on his physical talent and upside. I hope Anthony Mason’s haircut proves me wrong. It has many times before.

Good luck this season guys!
