Fantasy Basketball 2010 – Rebounds

Players seem to either have the rebounding knack or they don’t have it. Despite the huge shuffle of major players from one team to another, the only thing that seems to affect a players rebounding numbers is that amount of time that they have on the court. If a starter from one team becomes a starter on another team, you can pretty much count on his rebounding numbers being the same as they were on the previous team or the previous year.

So let’s get into the top rebounders in the league. Make sure you snatch a couple of the top rebounders up as quickly as possible, but be careful for low free throw percentage numbers if that is a factor in your league.

Fantasy Basketball 2010 – Points Scored

Like I try to do every year, I’m going to break down individual categories in the NBA into various tiers of players. And how they are likely to perform this year in your NBA Fantasy Basketball Rotisserie league. With so many high profile, team-affecting players switching team this offseason, it is likely going to be difficult to make some of these predictions — much more difficult than it has been in years past.

But I’m going to give it a shot.

The first category that we are going to address is points scored. Each player is going to be listed with his 2009-2010 season numbers in parentheses next to his name.

NBA Playoffs Predictions – 2010

Sometimes, I predict all of the playoffs.

Sometimes, I predict a round at a time.

This year, I have decided just to predict the whole thing in one blog.

Top Picks Still Available

If you’re looking for a deal right now, you’ve probably already missed out on the likes of Danilo Gallinari, Channing Frye, Aaron Brooks, Brandon Jennings, Tyreke Evans, and Marc Gasol. Even Greg Oden seems to be doing much better this year than last year — of course the jury is still out on whether he can last the year.

With recent injuries to key players and other players returning from injury, you may still be able to find some players who can help you, especially if you find that you are a little low in certain categories.

Let’s take a look at what we have…

Fantasy Basketball 2009 – The First Two Rounds

There is a chill in the morning air.

That means two things to me.

1. College Football is starting up.

2. It’s time to sign up for Fantasy Basketball and start doing the research to pick the best Fantasy Basketball team that we can.

For my first blog of the Fantasy Basketball season, I’m going to look over the candidates for the first two rounds of the Fantasy Draft. The first two rounds are extremely important because if you don’t have the right top echelon players on your team, you’re in real trouble. A bunch of good players later on aren’t going to make up for missing out in the top two rounds.

So here are my observations about the top 30 or so players who could be available when you pick in the first couple of rounds and why you should or shouldn’t consider them.
