Big shout out to maleopold15 over at Sports Thoughts for his help in the help of creating a new series. He reports on the NBA, MLB, and the NFL. We are each helping each other out on our new fantasy series, mine for the NBA, and his for the NFL. Go check out the full blog at Sports Thoughts.
This is a weekly series that will be published every Sunday, previewing who will be the best fantasy players of the next week. Maleopold15 and I will select our ideal fantasy starting fives heading into the week.
Last week, Maleopold selected Russell Westbrook, Donovan Mitchell, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, and Karl-Anthony Towns who averaged a combined: 25 Points, 10.2 Rebounds, 5.3 Assists, 1.4 Steals, and 1.1 Blocks.
I selected Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Lebron James, Ben Simmons, and Nikola Jokic who averaged a combined: 23.3 Points, 10.2 Rebounds, 7.9 Assists, 1.7 Steals, and 0,5 Blocks.
Maleopold won three out of the five statistical categories, so he won week twenty-five.
That’s right; in nineteen weeks of basketball, my partner, maleopold15 has won this season’s rendition of fantasy basketball. It was fun while it lasted, and we will be back next season better than ever.
Thank you to James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Lebron James and Anthony Davis following the Demarcus Cousins injury for being the easiest players to pick every single week. You all made it truly difficult to stray away from the norm, and new rules will be implemented next season to stop this.
