    2016 Fantasy Basketball Cheat Sheet
    Sam (@Macetastic) has done it again. 
    Here's an excerpt of his article describing what he calls the $5 Fix (cheat sheet):
    Jump directly to the article here.

    I’ll cut right to the point.
    If you want every useful NBA statistic and ranking to prepare for your draft, then this is the cheat-sheet for you.
    I’m the first to admit the information packed into this tidy little package can be found, for free, in various places using various sourcing methods.
    But you won’t find ALL of it in one place, except for here.
    With every player’s stat just open a new tab and copy/paste your pick as the draft goes, tracking your stats so you know what stats you need. Much easier in offline I admit! The FGM, FGA, FTM, FTA stats are always useful as they help paint an actual representation of your team’s outlook. Yes, if you take DeAndre Jordan you still won’t reach 80% from the line even if you pair him with Kevin Durant, James Harden, DeMar DeRozan, Danilo Gallinari, Russell Westbrook AND Carmelo Anthony (a combined 43.1 out of 54.4, 79.1%).
    It’ll work in Excel and Sheets, I’ve taken the ugly hairy stuff out from the back and it comes in a weeny little file of less than 700kb, perfect to save on your phone, computer or tablet.
    Here’s a preview of the main page, also showing all the tabs containing the other statistical goodies.
    Head to the bottom of this page for the downloadable link.

    All this for only $5. You don’t need those cheeseburgers, they won’t tell you to draft Nikola Jokic instead of Nikola Vucevic.
    This spreadsheet isn’t machine washable and it won’t mow your lawn with the flick of a switch, but it will help you in your fantasy draft this season.
    As always I can be reached on Twitter here (@macetastic) and I love getting feedback and questions (about fantasy mainly, though if you like rugby or league I’ll gladly talk you to sleep).
    HEAD OVER TO THE ARTICLE HERE TO GET THE $5 FIX

    RotoQL - Importing Your Own Projections
    RotoQL is one of the finest resources for daily fantasy sports players to surfaces since the inception of the game. Many players develop their own algorithms/projections that assist them in building lineups. If you don't, that's fine too. RotoQL supplies users with a handful of projections from reputable sites like Baseball Prospectus and Razzball that help guide lineup construction, but if you'd like to use the RotoQL tools with your projections, you can import them from the Projections tab.
    Prior to the tutorial, if you'd like to take RotoQL for a test drive, please use this link to sign up for a free account. If you like what you see, invest. If you invest, let me know and I'll also give you access to our premium content here at TheFantasyFix.com.
    Go to Projections -> Upload my own projections.

    Thanks man - appreciate it.
    I'm in so many dynasty leagues (3 currently) and noticed there aren't really any out there either, apart from ones either at the start or end of the season.
    I'll see what I can do, I might try and do one when I get home but it'll depend on timing. I'm a stickler for detail though so with rankings comes comments, which are the parts that take AGES...
    cheers

    Appreciate the response, and best of luck in your move Sam. I'll hope to see them again next season.
    Just for what it's worth, this is the only website I have found that had month updated dynasty rankings. And as I said, having gotten back into NBA fantasy for the first time in years, and being a dynasty league to boot, your rankings were very helpful. So thank you for the ones you did produce.

  14. Sam Macey added a post in a topic Top 200 Dynasty Rankings   

    Hey mate - yeah I write these usually but unfortunately (kind of!) I'm preparing to move back to New Zealand after 3 years in London. Haven't had many spare hours lately as the planning/sorting itinerary etc is a nightmare and my wife and I leave in about a month's time. 
    They might return next season but I don't have the time right now unfortunately. Zack or another writer might be able to put some dynasty content out, but the rankings are a baby that cries/poops/screams each and every night, which is why I basically concentrated on them and not other articles.
    If there's more of a demand for dynasty related content then I'm sure the team will look at cranking some more pieces out, including the rankings (maybe not 200).
    Cheers
    Sam
    ps - if you've got any specific players etc that you want to discuss, chuck them in here and we can give you detailed responses if that helps?

    Top 200 Dynasty Rankings
    The last Dynasty ranking came out January 28th. Is there a new one in the works? They have been very helpful for me since I took over my first NBA dynasty league in December.

    Agree with your first three choices -- especially Santana at $1. I'd likely grab Murphy at $13, but if your concerned about the lack of closer depth in the NL/others keeping closers, I can see keeping Smith or Vizcaino. I prefer Vizcaino, but both team's roles seem to be up in the air as of now.
