The Memphis Grizzlies were kind of a hot take for all those middle-round fantasy basketball sleepers. After Ja Morant, there was Jonas Valanciunas, and then a bunch of players that were drafted in the end game. Ranked near 200 in the preseason, Dillon Brooks was a fourth-year scoring threat who was weaker in peripheral categories. Nonetheless, he was on the floor nearly 30 minutes per game, and there’s low-key value to that. With Ja Morant out until late January or early February, Dillon Brooks has been feasting as the Grizzlies’ go-to guy. His usage rate is currently 27th best in the league, and he’s put up over 20 points in each of the last two games to go with some solid peripherals. Should you be looking at Brooks to feed your fantasy basketball team?

And yes, indeed, he was a good friend of mine. He’ll be a friend of yours, too, after you’re done reading this article, assuming you haven’t drooled all over your phone that the screen has become unusable. For you monitor monkeys, I really hope you’re not horizontally drooling. If so, you may want to consult your nearest witch doctor.

Donte DiVincenzo (pronounced correctly only if you’re from New Yawk) is quietly the best shooting steals threat in the NBA. Sure, it’s an arcane stat category that I just made up on the spot — kind of like the time I went into a haunted house and proclaimed every table cloth a murder weapon — but it’s a stat that matters for efficiency. When you’re looking for edges in your fantasy teams, an excellent shooting guard who plays [checks notes] shooting guard and also racks up the steals is the kind of B-side player that you feel sexy about while the A-team is off enjoying a masked excursion to the club. 

Let’s take a quick look at DiV, who is a player that is bound to make even the most hardened coder scream in anger when I use that acronym.

What’s up everybody? I’m aiming this article at those people who are Googling “How to win my fantasy basketball league” or are Bing-ing (make sure the hyphen is in that word!) “Winning a fantasy basketball league.” Or maybe, you’ve played but never really thought about the underpinnings of fantasy sports. Either way, I hope this article gives you a quick run-down of the best ways to play fantasy sports — including basketball! — and maybe turn this hobby we have into a lifelong passion.

All right fam, I sat on this preview long enough. The season is nigh, and it seems that if James Harden won’t be joining the Brooklyn Nets (prays to the God of Editors that I don’t need to rewrite this), and we’re at a position where we can focus on the Nets’ other luminary players — Caris LeVert and Taurean Prince. I kid! We all know I’m a Jarret Allen stan.

How am I supposed to find information on Kyrie Irving? ALEXA! WHAT’S A DURANTULA? 

ENYWHEY, faithful Razzball readers might know me as the pitcher ranker on the baseball side, and the quarterback ranker on the football side (and the guy who writes the Razzbowl fan fiction), and now you get good ‘ol Blair giving you hot taeks on the basketball side for 2020-2021. So, without risking the 24-second clock running down to zero here, let’s take a look at the hottest team in the NBA for 2021.
