If you haven’t heard by now, Henry at Weakside Help and I at — well, here — am going on a mock-drafting adventure. Here’s a quick overview: we’re building 12 teams in a standard nine-category league, round-by-round (for 13 rounds), in order to build the best teams that we can, while also drafting in an appropriate order.

So far, the first two rounds haven’t strayed too much from the script, which means some eyebrow raising is bound to be in store in this round.

Here’s round one (here at fBasketballBlog).

Here’s round two (over at Weakside Help).

Now for round three, where things start to get dicey: (continue reading…)

Daily fantasy recap: 4.12 (weekend wrap-up)

Weekend Wonder: Kevin Durant took the cake, averaging a blistering 37.5 points, 2 threes, 9.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.5 steals and 1 block in two games. He shot 46 percent from the field, 93 percent from the line and averaged just a turnover per game. The kid has done a fine job of exceeding high expectations this season and is a lock to go in the top three next season.

Noteworthy Lines:
Ben Gordon (4/9) – 12-21 FG (57%), 8-8 FT (100%), 7 3ptm, 39 Pts, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; Don’t look now but Gordon’s working on a three-game streak with 21+ points.

Al Horford (4/9) – 3-10 FG (30%), 6-6 FT (100%), 12 Pts, 15 Reb, 5 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO; He’s grabbed double-digit boards in five straight games and is putting up great all-around numbers in April.

Paul Millsap (4/9) – 6-11 FG (55%), 3-6 FT (50%), 15 Pts, 12 Reb, 6 Ast, 5 Stl, 2 Blk, 1 TO; This followed up his 13/11/3/4/4 game. Millsap continues to tease fantasy owners with, well, fantasies of Carlos Boozer in another uniform. (continue reading…)
