Waiver Watch: A Fresh Start

Fifty games were enough for the Pistons to part ways with first year coach Maurice Cheeks. Detroit has become a revolving door, as the replacement for Cheeks will be the fifth different coach for the franchise since 2008. Read More »

Waiver Watch: Team Contributors

Kevin Durant’s MVP caliber play has helped propel the Thunder to the best record in the NBA with Russell Westbrook recovering from a third knee surgery in seven months. A career-year from Serge Ibaka certainly has helped as well.  Read More »

Waiver Watch: Looking for Versatility

The Clippers needed more from Blake Griffin than to punish defenders at the rim. Opponents began to dare Griffin to take mid-range jumpers instead taking the risk of becoming infamous on YouTube. This year, defenders need to chase Griffin anywhere he spots up on the floor. Read More »

Wizards Provide Plenty of Fantasy Options

Fantasy junkies have certainly been paying attention to the goings-ons of top 100-150 or so players. Tip from D.C.: pay more attention to Bradley Beal. No, I’m not nominating the second-year player as a sleeper, per se, but he’s currently being drafted much lower than he should be. Read More »

He’s set to have a much more substantial role this season, likely moving into the sixth man spot for Oklahoma City. Jackson will have his opportunities to run the Thunder’s second team, much in the same way James ... Read More »

McGee Poised for a Breakout Year

The Denver Nuggets are a team full of good players. From a fantasy standpoint, several of them should be able to positively contribute to your squad’s overall point production, but none jump off the page as first, possibly even second-round picks. Read More »
