    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

    According Raptors' beat writer Ryan Wolstat, Kyle Lowry (left ankle sprain) is not expected to play in Monday's game versus the Knicks.

    Wolstat also said he would expect Kawhi Leonard (load management) to sit out this one as well. Jeremy Lin drew the start in place of Lowry on Sunday, but Fred VanVleet has returned from his lengthy absence and played 31 minutes. VanVleet is the biggest beneficiary if Lowry sits out.

  • Lou Williams - G - Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams scored 25 points and hit the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer in a 119-116 win over the Nets on Sunday.

    He added six rebounds, two assists and two triples to the box score while shooting 8-of-16 from the field. Williams has turned it on in the second half of the season and has seemingly locked in the Sixth Man of the Year award. He should return top-100 value for the remainder of the season.

  • Danilo Gallinari - F - Los Angeles Clippers

    Danilo Gallinari put up 20 points with 11 rebounds and five assists on 7-of-17 shooting in 31 minutes in a win over the Nets on Sunday.

    Gallinari continues to be a top-30 value this season and has actually managed to have a healthy season. Montrezl Harrell also had a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double with three blocks on 8-of-17 shooting. These guys are two of the main reasons that the Clippers hold a playoff spot in the Western Conference.

  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander - G - Los Angeles Clippers

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put up 14 points with 10 assists on 5-of-12 shooting in a win over the Nets on Sunday.

    He made three triples and added two rebounds to the stat sheet. He is a solid two-way player and can be labeled as an assists and steals specialist in most formats. He should provide late-round value for the remainder of the season and is worth owning in standard formats.

  • D'Angelo Russell - G - Brooklyn Nets

    D'Angelo Russell put up 32 points on 13-of-25 shooting with five rebounds, 10 assists and six 3-pointers against the Clippers on Sunday.

    The Nets went on a 10-0 run with 1:02 left in the fourth quarter to tie the game. They did all of that just for Lou Wiliams to hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer. Russell continues to be the best player on the Nets and boasts top-60 value on the season. The Nets will need him to stay on top of his game if they want to make it into the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.

  • DeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets

    DeMarre Carroll played well on Sunday in a loss to the Clippers as he had 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds.

    He made all five of his attempts from the stripe and went 3-of-6 from deep. Carroll has been a deep-league shooting specialist this season and remains in that conversation as long as he remains on the Nets bench.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie shot just 2-of-16 from the field on his way to 13 points in a loss to the Clippers on Sunday.

    He shot 8-of-12 from the line and added four rebounds, three assists and one block to the box score. He has been playing well as of late, so he gets some slack for the bad performance. Expect him to bounce back with a better, more efficient performance next time out there.

  • Rodions Kurucs - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Rodions Kurucs got in foul trouble on Sunday as he fouled out in just 13 minutes, but he was able to get two steals and three blocks before exiting the game.

    He scored five points with two rebounds on 2-of-3 shooting as well. He definitely has an Andre Kirilenko type skill set and has the potential to end up as a dominant defensive player. He has put up top-70 value over the past two weeks and is worth owning in standard leagues for the remainder of the season for his shooting and defensive abilities. He should be able to provide late-round value at the very least.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul went off on Sunday with 25 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists and six triples in a 117-102 win over the Wolves.

    He shot 8-of-12 from the field, made all three of his attempts from the stripe and added a steal to the box score. James Harden put up 20 points and 10 assists on 8-of-24 shooting. This is definitely one of the most reliable backcourts to own in fantasy along with the Warriors duo.

  • Clint Capela - C - Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela dominated against the Wolves on Sunday in a 117-102 victory with 20 points and 13 rebounds on 8-of-11 shooting.

    Although his value is just top-50 over the past month, he is still a borderline top-20 value in 9-cat leagues for the season and is a very reliable center option. He does not have much competition for big man minutes, so he is forced to play minutes in the upper-30's when it is a close game against a solid big man. Expect a strong finish to the season for Capela.
