What's wrong with Granger and Aniston? (Matt Dial/The Indianapolis Star; Flame80/Flickr)

Happy Friday, readers.

It’s time for another edition of Fantasy Friday. If you’re new ’round here, click on over to the inaugural matchup to read a quick description.

Alas, the girls have been kicking the boys’ butts, with Jessica Alba besting Dwyane Wade, Jessica Biel beasting Dwight Howard and, most recently, Kristen Stewart outdoing Dirk Nowitzki. Ouch.

Let’s see if the men can get their first win in this battle of damaged goods: Danny Granger vs. Jennifer Aniston.

The parallels between the two are simple: nobody seems to want them despite their obvious gifts. (continue reading…)

2010-11 Fantasy basketball mock draft w/ Weakside Help: Round 1

by on Jul.26, 2010, under Mock drafts

LeBron James shocked

Will you be shocked when you find out where LeBron is drafted? (Keith Allison/Flickr)

I’m of the mind that it’s never too early to participate in fantasy basketball mock drafts, so when Henry at Weakside Help reached out to me with the idea of partnering on a drafting adventure, I was amped — Robin Lopez amped.

Here’s the deal: We’re working with a 12-team head-to-head league with nine categories (FG%, FT%, 3ptm, Pts, Reb, Ast, Stl, Blk, TO) and 13 draft rounds. I’m taking the first round, Henry takes the second, I take the third, etc. Each round will consist of picking players in the order we see fit while making sure we’re building 12 viable teams as best as we can, sprinkling our comments along the way.

Got it? Good.

Without further ado, let’s dive right into the first round of our fantasy mock draft: (continue reading…)

Daily fantasy recap: 4.8

by on Apr.08, 2010, under Quick hits

[Read the full, original post at Dimemag.com]

Beast of the Night: Stephen Curry blasted the Timberwolves with 27 points, 3 threes, 8 rebounds, 14 assists and 7 steals. He shot 55 percent (12-22) from the field and had 4 turnovers. There’s not much else you can say about his stellar rookie season except for the fact that it holds tons of promise for 2010-11.

Noteworthy Lines:
Danny Granger – 11-27 FG (41%), 6-8 FT (75%), 5 3ptm, 33 Pts, 7 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Blk, 3 TO; He has a tendency to own the Knicks whenever he plays them so this is no surprise. Granger’s having a solid finish to a bit of a rocky season because of his unreliable health.

Ben Gordon – 7-17 FG (41%), 5-5 FT (100%), 3 3ptm, 22 Pts, 2 Reb, 7 ASt, 3 Stl, 4 TO; This was his second game with 21+ points this month but it probably doesn’t mean much. He’ll probably follow this up with a subpar showing.

Samuel Dalembert – 8-9 FG (89%), 3-5 FT (60%), 19 Pts, 16 Reb, 4 Blk, 3 TO; He’s been frustrating to own lately and has reverted back to being a shaky fantasy player since A.I. left town. Still, if you need boards and blocks, it’s hard to bench him in deeper leagues. (continue reading…)
