    Description

    There are a handful of decent draft guides out there.

    We’re a bit biased here, but ours is the best.

    And when you’re playing for pride or money, you don’t want second best. Or third best. Or the generic one that everybody reads at a TV big box site.

    You want the guide that wins national championships. You want the managing editor of the guide to be a FSWA Fantasy Basketball Writer of the Year. You want the Bruski 150 because year after year it puts other rankings to shame and consistently produces winners.

    Mostly, you want the people giving you fantasy advice to actually put their money where their mouth is (and win) year after year.

    I’ve organized draft guide coverage for the past decade over at Rotoworld and what I can tell you is that it’s only as good as the backbone of the research. The backbone here is the Bruski 150. Unlike other rankings that just get thrown together, the B150 is made using proprietary algorithms, MONTHS of ALL DAY research, YEARS of experience and custom-built projections for nearly every player in the NBA (sorry Tim Quarterman).

    It is from this central point of analysis that the coverage gets built out and because the foundation is strong, the rest of the draft guide can get really aggressive.

    The best part is that right now we’re a small website. While most of your competition will be reading from the generic big box lists, you’re getting pro grade advice that nobody else in your league will have. At least for now.

    Thanks for the support everybody.

    RotoBalance App for Android users:

    We performed statistical analysis on thousands (28k+) of fantasy basketball leagues from the 2016-2017 season. The goal was to find out if there is a correlation between the size of the leagues and the amount of each stat you need to win the category.

    The answer is yes! We found exactly how much of each stat you need to compete in your league, and it depends on the league’s size.

    We do that research as a foundation of Hoop Ball’s Draft Guide and the projections used for the Bruski 150.

    Now, we’re bringing that research to you in an app that will help you draft a strong, but balanced squad so you don’t waste picks on players that might be inefficient for your particular squad or team build.

    The app is free for Hoop Ball Draft Guide subscribers and we are going to continue building this out so you guys can keep dominating your leagues!

    Interactive benefits include:

    • Subscriber Live Chats (enjoy it while our membership is sort-of low)
    • Expert and Reader Mock Drafts

Fantasy News

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday finished Friday's 128-115 win over the Blazers with 20 points (5-for-10 shooting), nine assists, four triples, four steals and two rebounds.

    This was an elite line from Holiday, who was very aggressive in attacking the basket as evidenced by his eight free throw attempts. As Holiday figures out his spots in this new-look offense watch for his scoring to tick up.

  • Brandon Ingram
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Brandon Ingram scored an efficient 16 points (5-for-8 shooting), six assists, four rebounds and three triples in Friday's win over the Blazers.

    Brandon Ingram looks more and more comfortable leading this offense every day and tonight we got a glimpse at his development as a passer and playmaker. As the roster gets healthy around him and he doesn't have to rely on scoring so much every night, expect his fantasy game to continue to grow and flourish – potentially adding some assists along the way.

  • Royce O'Neale
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Royce O'Neale played 25 minutes on Friday, putting up nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

    He only made three shots tonight (3-of-8 FG) and was a paltry 1-for-5 from deep, although he is averaging 1.2 threes per game this year. His contributions across the stat sheet have kept him fantasy-relevant in nearly all formats this season. O'Neale's rank has sat around the top-150 and he should definitely be used in 14-team leagues.

  • Zion Williamson
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Zion Williamson looked unstoppable again in Friday's win over the Blazers, adding 25 points (10-for-17 shooting), four rebounds, three assists and one steal.

    Williamson did miss five of his 10 free throw attempts in what really seems to be the only potential blemish on his exciting and developing fantasy profile. He could definitely end up being a big factor in fantasy playoffs this season. Derrick Favors started alongside the rookie phenom and posted eight points, 12 rebounds and a steal.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball continued to offer good production in Friday's win over the Blazers, posting 15 points (6-for-11 shooting), seven assists, five rebounds, three triples, one steal and one block.

    Ball frequently initiated fast breaks by passing ahead in transition – something that is slowly becoming his trademark especially since Zion Williamson was introduced to the lineup. When at his best – which Ball clearly is right now – he is contributing everything except free throw shooting.

  • Josh Hart
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Josh Hart contributed 13 points (4-for-5 shooting), 13 rebounds, three triples, two assists and one block in 28 minutes on Friday.

    Hart was sensational in Friday's game as he frequently used his superior athleticism to overpower the Blazers defense. Nicolo Melli was also productive off the bench with 13 points (5-for-11 shooting), five rebounds, three triples and a steal.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum generated 27 points (10-for-22 shooting), 10 assists, six rebounds and three triples in Friday's 115-128 loss to the Pelicans.

    This is as well-rounded a line as you'll see from McCollum who stands to benefit statistically while Damian Lillard misses time. He should have the ball in his hands more which will lead to more chances to set up his teammates. He could become a sell-high if things really start popping. Stay tuned.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside accumulated 19 points (9-for-16 shooting), 12 rebounds, six blocks and two assists across 32 minutes in Friday's loss to the Pelicans.

    Whiteside's miraculous season of putting up top-10 fantasy numbers continues with another gaudy block total in this one. Whiteside is proving to be one of the best draft day values this season. Continue riding the wave.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony scored 20 points (6-for-17 shooting) in Friday's loss to the Pelicans, adding five rebounds, two triples, one assist, one steal and one block.

    Anthony was once again inefficient from the field and looked pretty slow against the athletic Pelicans lineup. Trevor Ariza started alongside Melo and chipped in 13 points (5-for-7 shooting), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals, one triple and a block. Each could see a bit more usage while Damian Lillard is out.

  • Gary Trent Jr.
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Gary Trent Jr. started in place of the injured Damian Lillard on Friday and chipped in 15 points (5-for-11 shooting), three triples, two assists, one rebound and one steal.

    It sounds like Lillard is set to miss anywhere from four to six games so feel free to add Trent while Lillard is on the shelf. Expect production in threes and points mainly.
