Welcome to the fifth installment of Weekly Yinteresting Thoughts (WYT). In these posts, I’ll be sharing some of my random thoughts, opinions, and questions about the NBA landscape as it pertains to fantasy basketball. Feel free to drop your comments and questions below! Let’s get started.

I’ll start off this week’s segment by briefly discussing some early trends in team defenses. To nobody’s surprise, my beloved Rockets are once again near the bottom of the standings as the third-worst in the Association. But hey, it’s better than last! Only the Spurs and the Pistons are worse. The Warriors are 27th, which shouldn’t be much of a surprise considering their disappointing record, but as the retained core of a championship roster? That simply won’t do. If you’d like to get a more in-depth look at the Warriors’ defensive woes, look no further than Joseph Yancey’s excellent write-up here, where he breaks down the Warriors’ defense (or lack thereof).

For me, typical offseasons in fantasy basketball involve closely following NBA news, trying to predict ADP’s for next year’s sleepers, and a fair bit of theorycrafting. This year, I explored and tried to execute an idea that I’ll call Categorical Invulnerability.

It’s only appropriate that Halloween looms around the corner because the Charlotte Hornets are officially spooky; fantasy wise. Rising talent? Check. Shiny new first round draft picks? Check. Scary Terry? Check, check, check. 
The Hornets will be gunning for a late playoff position to give their young guys some playoff experience and, while it’s uncertain whether they’ll get there in a loaded Eastern Conference, player development is at the forefront of their priorities. 
We have to be intrigued about this team’s fantasy prospects this season. But why? 

They finished 10th in the East last season! 

Miles Bridges is probably not even playing this year! (rightfully so) 

Steve Clifford said their starting center is Mason Plumlee! 

Gordon Hayward has played over 55 games just once in the past five seasons!
