  1. Bold Predictions for the 2018-2019 Season

    That cat was so hit or miss last season, I’d personally let another GM deal with that headache. Klove is always fun in H2H. Definitely aiming for him on draft day.
  2. For me, that’s where the PO schedule is the kicker. If you’re confident in your drafting abilities, then all you need to focus on in the months before the fantasy trade deadline is dealing away your injury prone guys, getting star players from teams with robust schedules, and those on non-busy days. For instance, drafting jokic in the opening round—if you can’t nab him, trading a guy(s) from a team like the pelicans (3-3-3 schedule) both weakens your opponent’s schedule and bolsters your games. I’m less concerned about games on the last week of POs. Bunch of teams have 3 games that week, but as long as they are before Saturday, then that helps for streaming purposes. Obviously, you wouldn’t want someone from the Hawks at the end, for example, since they play Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday; it sets you up to give away games in H2H when your opponent might stack on games against you. I’ve gone against some star studded teams in the finals (sometimes due to corrupt commissioners), but a good PO schedule and solid players always gets the job done for me if they manage to stay healthy.
  3. As an aside, I always get the Mock Draft Machine trophy on yahoo (participate in over 100 mock drafts). That way there are no surprises, and I’m ready for any draft day curveballs. 100% recommend doing as many as you can even if you put auto draft. Plan A, Plan B, & Plan C!
  4. @apatas @jay14bay Historical data—of course injuries throw a wrench in your plans, but all in all, if you draft well based on how that player preformed in the previous years + current situation, you should be confident you’ll make the playoffs. That’s why prepping for draft by setting up your personal draft rankings is top three most important parts of fantasy for me. I’ve made POs in 75% (according to yahoo profiles, espn is different setup, but same draft idea) of my leagues since I started fantasy, the first two years were the ones I didn’t make playoffs because I had no real historical data to base my draft day selections on. This is only furthered if you play in the same leagues from year to year. One of my main money leagues involves the same 10 guys generally and adds just 4-6 newbies to the mix. So, generally, you know who is going to grab whom; usually duds or injury prone guys. Just make sure you visit the do not draft threads, and you should cruise to a better standing. About halfway through the season, I make necessary moves to bolster my PO schedule and ride the wave to the trophy.
  5. It’s because we know we’re making POs haha. As long as you draft right, you don’t need to worry about catching up or falling behind. Being number one come playoff time can mean squat if you’re hit with injuries and your PO schedule already puts you down a handful of games.
  6. Lots of garbage PO schedules this season. Bodes well for my strategy of setting up my league mates for failure haha. Jokic bumps to the top for me.
  7. Paul Millsap 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Questionable today with an illness. Seriously, the worst possible time. Cmon man, pull through.
  8. Chris Paul 2017-18 Season Outlook

    Resting him tonight, unless he feels like playing. Somebody close to CP3, text him that my season depends on him. K thanks
  9. Marc Gasol 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Weather permitting, the game might even get cancelled.
  10. Snow Storm alert ! NYC and tri state area

    Hesitating to stream jamychel in a shallow league because of the philly weather. Bummer
  11. Snow Storm alert ! NYC and tri state area

    It would give me an excuse, but I agree, terrible way to lose. I have 4 guys affected.
  12. Snow Storm alert ! NYC and tri state area

    Has there been any word on the games? I’m in the east coast as well. Cancellations would pretty much put the nail in the coffin for my playoffs.
  13. Al-Farouq Aminu 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    You guys confident in him for the next two games (BOS & OKC)? I’m weighing the option of dropping a guy with 3 more games in contrast to Aminu’s 2–can’t risk my opponent getting him.
  14. No love for the playoff streamer of the year? Hah In all seriousness, guy plays the first day of next week, and you can swap him for games after. Should help you get that early lead in week 2 (or whatever week you’re in) of playoffs.
  15. Robert Covington 2017-2018 season outlook

    Weigh your options, those 4-4 days fall on busy game days. It might be worth owning him in shallower leagues if you’re just going to end up benching him on those full days.
