on

Welcome to a special episode of The Fantasy Six Pack Hour. Tonight I am going to be joined by Seth Klein, writer at The Fantasy Fix and Razzball. We will be preparing you for your upcoming 2016 Fantasy Basketball Draft, along with some tips for how to manage the season.

Don’t forget to check out the Fantasy Six Pack 2016-17 Draft Rankings.

2016 Fantasy Basketball Draft

General Strategy

We start by going over some general strategy. How should you go about attacking your drafts? What do we do as we enter the drafts? Is there a major difference between head-to-head and rotisserie style leagues.

Free Agents

Next we analyze some of the moves that happened this offseason. It was a crazy one for sure.

How does Kevin Durant’s presence in Golden State change things? Does this make Westbrook the easy No. 1 pick?

What about the new Bulls and Knicks? Can we and do we want to trust these guys on our teams?

Injuries

Moving on we get into how to handle the injured players. What do you do with a guy like Anthony Davis, who is one of the best in the game, but is always hurt? What about other guys like Eric Bledsoe, etc.

What about guys who are already injured, but supposed to return near the start of the season? Guys like Gordon Hayward. When should you draft them, if at all?

Rookies

We quickly touch on the rookies for 2016.

With Ben Simmons going down with an injury, is this somebody you want to draft? Are there any other rookies that you should target? We let you know.

Sleepers and Busts

Seth finishes out the show by giving you a few sleepers and busts that you will want to look out for in your drafts. Knowing who these guys are and when to correctly draft them can win you a championship.

Make sure you listen to this before your upcoming drafts to dominate your Fantasy Basketball leagues.
