Fantasy Basketball Tips – Waivers and Predictions

Fantasy Basketball Tips – Waivers and Predictions

Albeit the first week, you want to take notice of the small sample size, just not read too much into it. There will be a few guys who go off for about five games and come February, those games will be a distant memory. Though, every year at least three to four guys completely kick open the door to fantasy relevance. At the end of your season usually one or two of these players are on the winning squad. Acquiring these assets takes awareness, and frankly, a touch of luck. Because let’s be honest, if we knew mid round production was possible from these sources, they would have been drafted. Here are some guys I think have a strong shot to become fantasy darlings for the 2014/15 NBA season.

Early waiver predictions for 2014-2015 fantasy basketball

Ed Davis, LAL PF/C

With the injury sustained to Julius Randle, the door has crept open a little wider for Davis. Now behind the likes of Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill, he is exactly one inevitable affliction away from finding himself at 30+ minutes a night. His rebounding and scoring may not be as prominent as the ability to block shots, but he can certainly find a low range double double on most nights-adding a few blocks and a steal, if those minutes come his way. Blocks are a sought after commodity, being able to add two per game off the wire would get any fantasy basketball enthusiast excited.

Fantasy Football – Top 5 Fantasy Woes for Week 8

Fantasy Football – Top 5 Fantasy Woes for Week 8

Last week I confessed that my league fees are looking more and more like a donation and surely I’m not alone at this point in the fantasy season. The Fantasy Couch staff has been joking that taking a selfie with my team for this article would be fitting considering my starting lineup of Cam Newton, Doug Martin, Darren McFadden, Julian Edelman, Steve Smith and Charles Clay (I benched Jason Witten who had his first good game of 2014) were all painful to watch in Week 9. This is all more painful because I am the returning champ from last year.

2014-2015 Fantasy Basketball Draft Results

Fantasy basketball draft results for a H2H 12-man categories

We just finished our 2014-2015 fantasy basketball draft, good times. This league is going on its ninth year, 12-man H2H with nine categories. I was a bit surprised at Durant going in the first round. Not terrible though, considering it was toward the end (10) and may not have come back to the team if he waited. Picks 31 (Rose) and 32 (Horford) are very intriguing and could pay off big time.

Fantasy Football – Fantasy Woes Week 7

Fantasy Football – Fantasy Woes Week 7

With seven weeks in the books so far, some of us already feel like our league entry fee was a donation with no tax write-off.

Speaking of being written off, Zac Stacy is officially on the back burner in the Rams’ backfield. The second-year pro and former fifth-round pick didn’t get a single carry or reception and this year’s third-round pick Tre Mason looked really good in St. Louis’ division win over Seattle.
