Fantasy Basketball 2008 – Blocks

Where blocks are concerned, there are two players which stand out and then there a bunch of good players which really don’t come anywhere close. If you go for one of the top two players, you won’t have to spend any more time looking for blocks.

Fantasy Basketball 2008 – Assists

Looking over the field, all I can say is get your assists early or pay the price.

The top players have really separated themselves in this category, and if you don’t get one of them you’ll have to really pay particular attention to nabbing second tier players that also get you a lot of statistics in other categories.

I don’t think I’d risk it, though. You have to go for one of the top 5 players if you hope to have a chance in assists.
