Fantasy Basketball Week 1 (12/25 - 12/31)

12/29 Mike Conley will miss at least the next two games .  Jeremy Pargo(0% owned Yahoo) did a fine job replacing him in last nights contest, but I would look elsewhere for fantasy help.  Norris Cole(16%) is still a solid option, but Ramon Sessions(56%) might have the more immediate impact.  Ankles are tricky and could linger all season.  The Grizzlies play 5 times between now and next Friday so it will be interesting to see how he plays when/if he returns this week. 12/27  Steph Curry will sit out Wednesday's night game against the Knicks after tweaking his ankle, again.  Add Brandon Rush(10% owned Yahoo) or Norris Cole(6%), if you need depth and fear Curry misses more than just this one game.  Cole dominated tonight's 4th quarter against the Celtics and single handedly help avoid a Celtic comeback.  Cole will be the starting PG very soon. Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward will be starting for the Utah Jazz tonight .   The NBA really decided to stick it to the Los Angel

Get to Know Him - Norris Cole

In 2008, a school by the name of Cleveland State upset #11 Syracuse on a 3pt buzzer beater.  That team was lead by future 1st round pick Norris Cole.  He dropped 16 points that game while dishing out 6 assists and pulling down 5 rebounds.  He did that against, at that time, top notch PG Jonny Flynn. From Yahoo Norris Cole stepped to the foul line with 9.3 seconds left, set to clinch the game as cries of “M-V-P” rained down upon him from the sold-out stands. No, this wasn’t a scene from his days at Cleveland State. Taking over in just his second NBA game—and with LeBron James , Dwyane Wade and and Chris Bosh all on the floor, no less—Cole scored 14 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, including three huge jumpers down the stretch to save the Heat in a 115-107 win over the all on the floor, no less—Cole scored 14 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, including three huge jumpers down the stretch to save the Heat in a 115-107 win over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Basketball 2012 - Rookie Rankings

Rookie Rank Name Position Team 1 Derrick Williams SF MIN Still believe he was a better option for Cleveland in the Draft, but he ended up in Minny. Even though they have a ton on guys that play out of position, adding Rubio will instantly create scoring opportunites for everybody. Plus if they really want to get better, Michael Beasley will be traded at some point this season. 2 Ricky Rubio PG MIN I am very surprised he came to play for the T'Wolves but the NBA and its fans are glad he did. He wont help much in the scoring department compared to other rookie PGs, but he has a ton of players to dish the ball to and put up nice assist numbers. 3 Kyrie Irving PG CLE A super talent, but way to much pressure to put the team on his back this season. 4 Jimmer Fredette SG SAC He may not get all the minutes we hope for, with Tyreke and Marcus Thorton in the mix, but Fredette will dish the ball as well as create his own scoring opportunites. 5 Enes Kanter C UTAH Another rookie in a log

Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 14

Thursday Night Football December 8 Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers Chicago lost another starter in RB Matt Forte with an MCL sprain and he is slated to miss 2-4 weeks Andre Johnson who just returned from an injury two weeks ago, left last weeks game and his status for Week 14 is uncertain Redskins TE Fred Davis has been suspended for the remainder of the season after failing a drug test Kyle Orton attempted one pass in Week 13 before injuring his finger. It will be interesting to see if he comes back this season or not. Must Haves Marion Barber RB – And just like that a Star player was injured and this category has a name in it.  Barber has been stealing TDs from Forte for weeks now, so it is likely that he is already on someone else’s roster.  However, if you own Forte and need help this late in the season, make sure you look for Barber before going a different route. Still a must have, but rumor is that he will split time with Kahlil Bell

Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 13

THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL DECEMBER 1 Philadelphia Eagles @ Seattle Seahawks UPDATE - Kevin Smith and James Starks have returned to practice, and likely to play on Sunday. Sidney Rice is done for the season. Once again, another week of NFL football went by, and more season ending injuries occurred.  The Texans lost another QB in Matt Leinart to a broken collarbone, and are now forced to play rookie QB TJ Yates.  They did however sign veteran QB Jake Delhomme to back him up.  The NFC North took a beating as well as WR Michael Jenkins of the Minnesota Vikings is done for the season with a knee injury.  That division also lost two RBs in James Starks(Packers)and Kevin Smith(Lions), who both suffered ankle injuries.  It is unclear if either back will play in week 13.  Out west, Sindey Rice is not playing after suffering a concussion and Seattle having the short week.  This is the end of most fantasy regular seasons so let us know how we can help you make the playoffs!
