Roundup: 2011-12 Fantasy Basketball Team Previews

by on Oct.27, 2011, under Other, Team analysis

Karl Malone

Special delivery.

In case you haven’t noticed, yesterday we finished our previews/analyses of each NBA team for what I’m tentatively referring to “2011-12.” I suppose celebrating this accomplishment is akin to hitting a technical free throw and low-fiving imaginary teammates.

Though I’ll spare you the confetti and balloons, I do want to offer this: a simple list of all 30 fantasy basketball team previews. You can also access it atop the website, no matter what page you’re on.

Here’s what’s included in every team preview:

  • depth chart (free agents and players locked into overseas contracts are noted)
  • list of relevant fantasy players with projected per-game stats
  • sleeper
  • player most likely to surprise
  • player most likely to disappoint
  • category specialists
  • things to consider
  • the team’s statistical ranks in 2010-11
  • fantasy-friendliness grade
  • fun bonus video

Now I’ll be working on updating those rankings.
