NBA | Must-Haves | 2/25/17

Klay Thompson (DK: $6,800, FD: $7,000): With Kevin Durant already announced sitting out from tonight’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, we dove into usage rates for the remaining Warriors. The results of our research, although not necessarily surprising, were fruitful. With KD out, Thompson and Curry both receive tremendous boosts on the offensive end. With Durant out, Klay’s usage goes up to 34.3% and he returns owners 1.10 fantasy points…

SOC | Must-Haves: Liga MX | 2/25/17

Luis Reyes (DK: $5,000): It’s not very often a Must-Have is a defender, but Reyes is gaining traction as one of the best left-backs in Liga MX.

SOC | Must-Haves: Interleague | 2/25/17

Oscar Trejo (DK: $6,100): Trejo has a great matchup this week against eighteenth-place Nancy, a team that has lost their last four games in Ligue 1. He should be the primary taker of set pieces yet again for an offense that has looked strong since the addition of Delort during the January transfer window.  Toulouse has scored nine goals in their last four matches and have also been unbeaten over…

UNC Basketball

With NBA currently on a break, I decided to take a break from writing about fantasy sports and write an article about UNC basketball. Recently, I engaged in a debate with some classmates about whether or not Isaiah Hicks was all that important to the UNC basketball team. The debate didn’t get anywhere because none of us really came prepared with any data. Since then, I’ve compiled the necessary data…
