    Description

    The Bruski 150 has been a labor of love for me going on five seasons now and in each of them our readers have reported overwhelming levels of success.  Last year’s NFBKC Super League winner took home $30,000 as a B150 subscriber.  Many of my high stakes competitors buy the list and use it against me.

    Statistics on ranking performance are hard to come by, but the B150 consistently beats Rotoworld’s Draft Guide rankings year after year and it’s either the best rankings out there or close to it every season.

    For last year’s comparison you can click right here.  When you’re beating those guys, who are among the industry’s best — things are going well.

    I take these rankings into my high stakes competitions and I win with them.

    I’m a two-time champion of the Fantasy Basketball Association in its six years of existence, which in my opinion is the toughest fantasy basketball league in the world — including NFBKC winnings leader Eric Wong and a who’s who of industry ringers.

    I have two recent money finishes in the NFBKC’s Super league, which has the largest entry fee I’m aware of.  I ran to the second best record in the industry beast league known as 30-DEEP last season and finished in the final four the year before.

    While other sites sit the sidelines on these big money leagues, talk a big game and never square up with readers on the results, we’re all about being real with you guys so you can trust us.

    Remember Meyers Leonard three years ago?  We’ll never forget. Patrick Beverley two years before that?  Kawhi Leonard last year? I’m not totally wearing one of the more unprecedented situations we’ve seen in a while, but trust me, I wore it pretty well in a few leagues last season.  Brutal.

    That’s what happens when you produce a set of rankings that is truly fearless.  I’m trying to win a fantasy league here — not play it safe by staying within the comfy confines of industry norms.

    And there will probably be one or two big misses this year, too.  But we’re going to crush ADP and we’ll have you hitting on more plays than other industry sites, and we’ll also have you avoiding more busts than the other guys will, too.

    Last year we ran up another winning 60-40 percent prediction advantage over Rotoworld.  On the big needle moving plays we drastically outperformed against them and they’re as good as it gets out there, so imagine what folks are doing against mere ADP.

    That’s what happens when hard work and research meets experience.  The B150’s blend of proprietary statistical models and constant film review leave no stone unturned.

    Why do all that work?  Aside from the fact that it takes hard work to be the best — it’s an investment.  I like winning money. And I love it when my readers are making money.

    If you’re not putting your money where your mouth is when it comes to predictions it’s okay, and it definitely doesn’t mean you’re a bad analyst or anything like that.

    But wouldn’t you rather buy your rankings from somebody that’s demonstrably winning?

    So jump on in and put the fear of the fantasy basketball gods into your opponents.

Fantasy News

  • Gorgui Dieng - C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    ESPN’s Zach Lowe reported that league sources indicate that the Timberwolves prefer to package Jimmy Butler with Gorgui Dieng and the $48 million he’s owed over the next three years.

    Dieng was routinely pulling in top-60 value in 9-cat before Taj Gibson vame to town so a trade to a better situation might do him some good. We’re sure there will be a lot more updates on the Jimmy Butler situation so stay tuned.

  • Tyler Ulis - G - Golden State Warriors

    The Golden State Warriors have signed Tyler Ulis to an Exhibit 10 deal according to Anthony Slater at The Althletic.

    ESPN’s Marc J. Spears also reported that Ulis chose the Warriors over the Rockets and the Kings. Ulis will get to join the team for training camp and the Exhibit 10 deal offers a little more protection from the Warriors’ end, but it’s hard to see how Ulis will fit in their plans. If he sticks, he won’t have any fantasy value barring an injury, and if he ends up getting waived we’ll have to see if he signs with the Dubbs’ G-League squad or pursues other opportunities.

  • Emeka Okafor - C - Philadelphia Sixers

    The Philadelphia Sixers have signed Emeka Okafor to a training camp deal one day before the start of camp.

    Even if the ancient Okafor manages to stick on the roster, he shouldn’t be anything more than a veteran presence.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic - G - Sacramento Kings

    The Sacramento Kings have announced that Bogdan Bogdanovic will have an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee on Monday.

    There was no time-table given but these usually have a recovery of 4-to-6 weeks. There should be an update after the surgery on Monday but it looks like Bogi will miss the beginning of the season. As we previously reported, this is the same left knee that he had surgery on earlier this summer to repair a slight medial meniscus tear. Two surgeries in the span of a few months doesn't sound good and this'll be a big red flag come draft time. It's good news for Buddy Hield however.

  • Jimmy Butler - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Woj is reporting that despite rebuffs from Minnesota’s front office regarding Jimmy Butler, owner Glen Taylor informed participants of the NBA’s Board of Governors meeting that Butler is indeed available and that they should contact him personally if necessary.

    Wow. It looks like things are escalating behind the scenes with Taylor and Thibodeau issuing opposing directives regarding disgruntled Jimmy Butler. It seems like Butler is close to being moved and Thibs could be next to follow him out the door.

  • DeAnthony Melton - G - Phoenix Suns

    The Phoenix Suns have signed newly obtained De’Anthony Melton to a two-year, $2.3 million rookie deal.

    The Suns obtained Melton from the Rockets for Ryan Anderson and Brandon Knight earlier this summer so this signing was always going to happen at some point. With Devin Booker (hand) probably out to start the season and not a whole lot of options to start at point guard, Melton could be a nice surprise. We’ll have to see what the preseason brings.

  • Adam Silver - Commissioner - Invalid Team

    The NBA’s Board of Governors has approved three changes to the rule book for this season dealing with resetting the shot-clock on an offensive rebound, simplifying the clear path rules and expanding the definition of a “hostile act.”

    The first tweak is that the shot-clock will reset reset to 14 seconds after an offensive rebound instead of the usual 24 seconds. The second change is to the clear-path rule- now, it is defined as a personal foul against any offensive player during his team’s transition scoring opportunity so refs won’t have to determine if the defender was in front of the ball or not, or if the defender beat the offensive player to the frontcourt. The last chance will be expanding the definition of a “hostile act” to allow for additional replay for off-ball or other altercations.

  • Markelle Fultz - G - Philadelphia Sixers

    Markelle Fultz denied having the “yips” last season and said his struggles shooting the ball were due to his shoulder injury.

    This is the opposite of what shooting guru Drew Hanlen said over the summer when he asserted that Fultz had the “yips” and “completely forgot how to shoot.” We’re thinking as a young player, Fultz probably wants to protect his ego and maybe his image- despite recent headway made in the NBA dealing with mental health issues, nobody wants to admit to being psychologically ‘soft.’ At this stage it’s rather irrelevant as to why; we just want to see if Fultz can shoot it or not. Preseason games start soon and we’ll have the popcorn ready.

  • Jimmy Butler - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    According to Jon Krawczynski at The Athletic, Jimmy Butler might not show up to training camp if he isn't traded.

    We previously relayed Woj's report that the Wolves were not planning to trade Butler so it looks like both parties are ratcheting up their rhetoric before the season starts. Butler is a notoriously stubborn guy as is coach Thibs so we'll see who wins this head-butting battle. The writing's on the wall for Butler's time in Minnesota, so it's only a matter of when. Tom Thibodeau could be following him out the door as owner Glenn Taylor has been dissatisfied with his old-school tactics.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Houston Rockets

    Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said he wants wants Carmelo Anthony on the floor when P.J. Tucker is off, and vice versa because he sees them both as power forwards.

    It was widely assumed that Melo and Tucker would start together but now it appear to not be the case so maybe James Ennis is the starter at the 3. We’ll have to see how his rotation shakes out and if Melo’s staggered minutes coincide with Chris Paul’s. Either way, Melo looks to have a decreased role on offense as James Harden and Chris Paul control the offense.
