    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).

    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
    Go to Projections -> Upload my own projections.

    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.

    Thanks, Chris! I'm also from New Jersey, so if you send me some Taylor Ham I'll be gladly to point you to the rankings. 
    Just kidding.

    I feel like this year is as wide open as ever. Would like the ACC to bring it down. Maybe Virginia?

    Really close here -- and I know Scott suggested Salazar, but I'd prefer the bat, especially in a shallow league. I think both players have extremely high ceilings, but thing the pitching pool is significantly deeper and you can jump on that early in the draft if need be. If Rendon can stay healthy, he could be in for another big year..

    I think the values you're getting with the first four will allow you to splurge on Harper. I'd likely be keeping him even at $37 leaving you with ~$200 to fill out your squad. If you feel like a lot of closers will be kept, I may keep Frankie and throw back your $8 Gardner. Really depends on your league's tendencies.
