When the football season kicks off it means it’s time to start planning your Fantasy basketball team. For some that means picking their favorite players on draft night but for Fantasy fanatics like me that means a lot of homework, evaluating the summer’s NBA transactions, thinking about the rookies, who ended last season on a high note, who was on fire in the summer leagues or gained confidence in pro-am games, who got married, who got a new endorsement deal and most importantly who is playing for a new fat contract. Aside from doing all of those things, a must on the checklist is to check out Steve Alexander’s posts on Rotoworld. If you weren’t watching Monday Night Football then you might have seen DR A’s “NBA Sleepers, Busts & More” last night.
Here’s his list but be sure to check out the full post for a full explanation on each pick.
