    What do fantasy owners need during the season?

    Access.

    Access to experts and access to information.

    Owners also need better access.  The kind of access that helps cut through some noise.

    Brought to you by high stakes champion and FSWA Fantasy Basketball Writer of the year, Aaron Bruski, and contributors such as Fantasy NBA Today’s Dan Besbris, 30-DEEP champion Mike Passador, Erik Ong, Riaz Dhanani, Souriyo Dishak, Nathan Nguyen, Josh Millman, Najee Adams, Vladi Semenov, Jake Fitzgibbon and more!

    We take you behind the scenes of the choices with big money behind them, how we handle them and why we’re doing what we’re doing.

    This guide serves as both a time-saver in the race to consume fantasy content, but also as an all-encompassing service that gives you everything you need to win your league.

    How do we do that?


    INTERACTION

    One-way conversations through articles, print and even chat can be valuable and they’re not going away.  In fact, they’re a big part of what the Hoop Ball Premium Membership is going to be.

    But as technology evolves and brings us closer together, it makes no sense that fantasy sites aren’t bringing the conversation into your living room.

    Hoop Ball is going to change that with nightly, interactive video chats before and after the games on most nights.  Our experts are going to take your questions and answer as many of them as we can on air.

    Your league can turn on a dime.  Or a turned ankle.  And there are too many caveats to be explored within the constraints of a blurb, article or podcast (of which we will have plenty).

    There needs to be back and forth, a narrative needs to be explored, and the backdrop of league scoring settings, formats and strategies deserve an interactive medium.

    It’s immediate. It’s impactful. It’s better than everything else that’s out there.

    Your schedule demands you get the most out of your content and in the most convenient way possible.

    We’re going to cover season-long leagues, DFS and take a hard core look at waiver wire options and FAAB plays.

    And what about Monday lineup deadlines?  Our live lineups show on Mondays is going to take you right into tip-off so you can get the last second advice you need.


    ARTICLES AND TOOLS

    As mentioned, the print side of this shouldn’t be ignored.  Aside from the fact that you don’t always have time to watch or listen to things — having analysis on paper is a great way to lock in the answers.

    One foundational piece of any in-season product is the Pickups of the Night write-up.  So yeah, that’s included, but we also added pregame analysis with our Pregame Layup Line piece.  Erik Ong’s Weekly Report zooms out a tiny bit to look at the somewhat larger slices of data that we tend to forget when focusing intently from night-to-night.

    We’re also putting some crude, but savvy tools for fantasy owners with our Interactive Schedule Grid, Smart Depth Charts, Weekly Start-Sit Tool, Rankings and Go-Forward Projections.

    We have invested significant energy into Dynasty Rankings and a top-100 list.

    I’m not going to lie and say we’ll be the prettiest in-season product on the market today.  But we’re going to be the most dangerous.

Fantasy News

  • 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.

  • Danuel House Jr. - F - Houston Rockets

    Danuel House Jr. had another solid game on Sunday against the Wolves as he had 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds.

    He added two triples and two assists to the box score and has proven to be a solid bench piece for the Rockets when he is active. In the past two games, he has put up top-100 value and could be a nice speculative add while he is on the Rockets roster and not in the G-League.
