Hello Again, XN Sports

Going forward, you'll be able to find me at XNSports.com twice a week (I'll still be here too!)

Going forward, you’ll be able to find me at XNSports.com twice a week (I’ll still be here too!)

As some of you may remember, I contributed a few articles to XN Sports last spring. I ended up getting a little busy with other various projects (and real life) and unfortunately had to stop writing there for a bit…but I’m back!

 

I’m happy to say that I’ll be contributing two weekly fantasy basketball pieces to XN Sports for the rest of the season (one focusing on daily and one focusing on season-long) and will also be joining their fantasy baseball coverage for the rest of the year. It was a protracted contract negotiation, but once they relented and agreed to pick the green M&Ms out of my dressing room spread, it was a done deal.
 
This new endeavor (or endeavour for my British and Canadian friends) doesn’t mean anything changes on FantasyTrade411 (I’m not going anywhere). It just means you’ll get more of me in a new place. I’m hoping you all see that as a good thing.
 
Anyway, I just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know what’s going on (and also say a quick thanks to Tom Fitzgerald and Tom Laverty for bringing me on board) and share my first daily article: a feature on Giannis Antetokuonmpo’s daily fantasy value.
 
Keep an eye out on the Twitter feed for a link to my season-long piece later this week and give the guys at XN Sports a follow to make sure you’re not missing out on any of their great content.
 

Fantasy Basketball – Players to Buy in 2014

FantasyBasketball
Now that the Christmas games are in the books in the NBA, fantasy basketball owners can officially start making some decisions on their rosters. Players who are off to slow starts might just be unable to turn it around this season. Meanwhile, people exceeding expectations might just be for real. Here are three fantasy basketball steals in the draft who should be just fine for the remainder of the season.
 
LaMarcus Aldridge

 

In most fantasy basketball drafts, you could wait until at least the third round before you had to pick up LaMarcus Aldridge. So far this season, he is playing like a MVP of the entire NBA. He is the leader on the Portland Trail Blazers, who are exceeding expectations in their own right. Now that he is meshing with Damian Lillard and the rest of his supporting cast, there doesn’t seem to be anything (other than injury) that could slow him down.
 
Arron Afflalo
 
Orlando is at least a year away from competing for the playoffs, but Afflalo has been a very bright spot for the franchise. He has been shooting and making more three pointers than he ever has in his career, and the slight tweaks he made during the offseason are really paying off. Since he will continue to be the focal point of the offense, he might just end up being a top three shooting guard in the entire NBA.
 
DeMar DeRozan
 
Finally, few expected DeRozan to be an efficient fantasy basketball option in 2013-2014, but so far he has been. He was a borderline top 100 player heading into the season, but he has become a better overall player this season. Now that Rudy Gay is out of town, no one should steal his opportunities. Expect him to lead the young Raptors, and they might even sneak into the playoffs this season.
