    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 organized and produced draft guide coverage years 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, a ranking and projections methodology which is supplemented by industry leading analysts Dan Besbris and 30-DEEP winner Mike Passador, Erik Ong, Nathan Nguyen, Chef Ali, Souriyo Dishak, Adrian Benjamins, Neil Rochlani, Josh Millman and more.

    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.

    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.

    Year after year it destroys the competition. Last year kept the undefeated streak alive with another 60-40 win over the best fantasy site not named Hoop Ball.

    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.

    INCLUDED WITH THE GUIDE

    – FREE –

    Hoop Ball RotoBalance App for Android

    We performed statistical analysis on thousands (28k+) of fantasy basketball leagues from the 2016-2018 seasons.

    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!

Fantasy News

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry went for 25 points (6-of-11 FGs, 10-of-10 FTs), five rebounds, six assists, three 3-pointers and just one turnover in 34 minutes in Tuesday's 120-102 win over the Bucks.

    Lowry was feeling it and getting wherever he wanted most of the night. He's had a couple huge games in this series now and the Raptors will likely need another one if they're going to pull out a series win. Their next shot at the Bucks will come in Thursday night's Game 5 in Milwaukee.

  • Serge Ibaka - F/C - Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka double-doubled with 17 points (7-of-12 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) and 13 rebounds in 24 minutes on Tuesday as the Raptors evened the series with a Game 4 home victory over the Bucks.

    Ibaka provided some energy with some early dunks in traffic. This was his best game of the series by far, and it'll be interesting to see how the Bucks try to slow the Raptor's big men in Game 5 on Thursday.

  • Marc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol had a great all-around performance with 17 points (6-of-11 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), five rebounds, seven assists, one steal, two blocks, three treys, zero turnovers and some excellent defense over 31 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Bucks.

    Gasol looked great out there, making life in the lane tough for Giannis Antetokounmpo and causing Bucks turnovers on the perimeter. That's two straight quality performances from Gasol after two duds to begin the series. We'll see if he can keep it up as the Raptors return to Milwaukee on Thursday night.

  • Kawhi Leonard - F - Toronto Raptors

    Kawhi Leonard toughed out 19 points on 13 shots in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Bucks, adding seven rebounds, one assist, four steals, two blocks and a three in 34 minutes.

    Leonard looked stiff and cautious for much of this game, though he still hit 6-of-13 from the field and 6-of-8 from the charity stripe. Kawhi said that he feels good in response to a question about fatigue and his apparent leg injury. He has until Thursday night to recover a bit, but the Raptors will need as much of him as they can get as the series returns to Milwaukee.

  • Norman Powell - F/G - Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell scored 18 points with four threes, five rebounds, three assists and a steal in a big Game 4 victory over the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Powell got big minutes again (32) and had it going early. His final line of 6-for-18 from the field (4-for-13 from deep) looks pretty inefficient, but Powell was a major factor in building tonight's big lead. With Kawhi Leonard hobbling a bit, the Raptors may need to continue leaning on Powell more than usual.

  • Malcolm Brogdon - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Malcolm Brogdon shot just 2-for-11 from the field for four points in Tuesday's Game 4 road loss to the Raptors, adding just five rebounds and three assists in his 28 minutes.

    Brogdon missed his only free throw attempt and all three of his shots from distance. It wouldn't have been so deflating if George Hill (five points on 1-for-2 shooting in 27 minutes) and Eric Bledsoe (five points on 2-for-7 shooting in 20 minutes) had produced, but the whole backcourt had a tough time getting going tonight.

  • Fred VanVleet - G - Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet was nearly perfect in Tuesday's Game 4 win over Bucks as he hit 5-of-6 from the field including all three of his triples for 13 points in 25 minutes.

    Coming off of a 1-for-11 performance in Game 3, this was huge for the Raptors. VanVleet also had six assists, one rebound and one steal on the night. He'll look to keep it rolling in Milwaukee on Thursday.

  • Khris Middleton - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton was on fire in Tuesday's 120-102 Game 4 loss on Tuesday in Toronto, shooting 11-for-15 from the field on his way to a game-high 30 points in 36 minutes.

    Middleton drained 4-of-7 threes, 4-of-5 free throws, had six boards and seven assists with zero turnovers as well. The Bucks will need some supporting cast members to step up once again in Thursday's Game 4 back in Milwaukee. This series could easily go the distance, giving the Warriors an extra seven days of rest for the Finals.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo double-doubled with 25 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, a steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes, but it was not enough in Tuesday's Game 4 loss to the Raptors.

    Giannis hit 9-of-17 from the field but just 6-of-10 from the line in a minus 19 performance. He came out aggressive with some first quarter driving dunks, but the Raptors have been able to slow him down in the lane over the last couple of games. His next shot at them comes on Thursday in Milwaukee.

  • Eric Bledsoe - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe was nearly invisible in Tuesday's Game 4, going for just five points (2-of-7 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), three rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes.

    Bledsoe has been pretty abysmal in this series and it seems to be getting worse. George Hill and Malcolm Brogdon played more than him in this game (27 and 28 minutes, respectively) and there's a good chance that could continue with Bledsoe not being much of a threat on offense lately. Though, Hill and Brogdon did combine for just nine points in this game too.
