Podcast: The Fringe First Rounders

Damian Lillard WallpaperThe player selected in the first round of a fantasy basketball draft has to deliver.

By missing out in the opening round, the rest of the draft becomes an uphill battle.

The 2015-16 season has a clear-cut order of eight players, where there should be no deviating among those selections.

Another fantasy stalwart is worth a first round pick, even though he is coming off knee surgery.

The reigning Defensive Player of the Year shouldn’t slip to the second round, so that just leaves two uncertain selections in the opening round, with plenty of worthy candidates.

Portland is prepared to turn the franchise over completely to All-Star point guard Damian Lillard. The Trail Blazers have let the other four starters from the team last year either leave the team in free agency, or traded them away.

Lillard has provided steady scoring, assist, rebounding and 3-point shooting since entering the league three years ago, but has never had to perform as the focal point of the offense.

In our latest podcast, we examine some of the early injuries to prominent fantasy options, then make the final two selections of the opening round for the 2015 fantasy basketball draft.
