  1. Big men who can produce 3s, steals

    Tom Carpenter

    I am in a 10-team roto league, and I have 10s in field goal percentage, assists, steals and blocks, but I'm dead last in 3s. I sit in third place overall, just a couple of points out of first. (I'm also a healthy 13 and 37 games played behind first a...

  4. Buy, sell or trade current injured stars?

    Tom Carpenter

    In standard ESPN fantasy hoops leagues, there are only three bench spots. With that limited amount of space, determining which injured players you should keep, trade, release or add off of the waiver wire can be complicated. There are a slew of im...

  6. Should you sell LeBron after injury news?

    Tom Carpenter

    To be a genuinely elite fantasy baller, a player needs to post monster stats and rarely miss games. That's why LeBron James has been one of the top couple of players drafted every season for the past decade. Not only is he a stat-stuffing monster, bu...

  7. High-quality stats from lower-profile players

    Tom Carpenter

    I've often discussed how name recognition is an integral part of a player's fantasy value. It's simply human nature to be attracted to things that we know; it brings a certain level of comfort to us. If there is a product with which we are familia...

  8. Fantasy impact of Cavaliers' injuries

    Tom Carpenter

    Thursday was supposed to present us with a choice matchup between the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers and an Oklahoma City Thunder team that finally has stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook getting healthy. In an ironic twist, though, James ...

  10. Which injury-prone stars can you trust?

    Tom Carpenter

    "So don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire." -- Mick Jagger There are few things in Fantasyland more annoying than dealing with an injured player, especially when that player churns out big stats. To an extent, injuries are just part ...

  11. Will Derrick Favors really break out?

    Tom Carpenter

    Few players were found more often on breakout lists during the preseason than Utah Jazz big man Derrick Favors. He entered the NBA with comparisons to Dwight Howard, and with a new coach this season in Quin Snyder, the hope was that Favors might expl...

  12. Don't worry about Drummond's slow start

    Tom Carpenter

    After Andre Drummond racked up a ridiculous 13.5 PPG and 13.2 RPG last season, while banging down 62.3 percent of his shots, many of us presumed that he would take things up another level as a scorer this season, particularly under the direction of c...

  13. Michael Carter-Williams makes '14-15 debut

    Tom Carpenter

    For the first time in seven months, we got to see Michael Carter-Williams back on the hardwood Thursday. He had been sidelined since undergoing surgery in May to repair a torn labrum in his shooting shoulder. The downside of his lengthy recovery p...

  14. Scoring down for Leonard, Batum early

    Tom Carpenter

    Kawhi Leonard and Nicolas Batum are fantasy hoops darlings because each has the ability to rack up wide-ranging stats. We fantasy junkies eat that up like a kid chomping her way through her haul of Halloween candy. Yet, just like a child, we also can...

  15. Always keep watching the waiver wire

    Tom Carpenter

    Whenever the fantasy basketball season tips off, I end up thinking about Antawn Jamison. Sure, who doesn't, right? Jamison was the No. 4 overall pick back in 1998, but he generated very little buzz as a rookie, averaging just 9.6 PPG and 6.4 RPG. ...

  16. Fantasy fallout of Westbrook's injury

    Tom Carpenter

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook was forced out of Thursday's game with a fractured right hand. We'll need to wait for word from the team medical staff, but a simple fracture should sideline him for 3-4 weeks. If it turns out to be more ...

    Tom Carpenter

    The debut of the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday was about as clunky of a performance as you might expect from a first date. But instead of stumbling over each other's words, deferring to each other out of niceness, and lacking any conversation...
