I’ve always been fascinated by pelicans. They have to be the most versatile, yet DGAF bird predators out there. Not only do they have a long beak, but a large pouch to go with it. That allows them to eat a variety of foods: fish, birds, and invertebrates. It also allows them to hunt food shotgun-style, as they can scoop up water and eat whatever happens to be in there. As for DGAFing, pelicans have no teeth, so there is no chewing. Instead, they let their prey settle in their pouch until they shimmy down their throats….alive! The same can be said for the basketball version of the Pelicans, as they can attack an opponent in a variety of ways and will push the pace and ball down the other team’s throat DGAF-style.

Welcome back Razzball Nation, to yet another edition of Dynasty Deep Dive on your Superbowl weekend. I hope the week has bought you more joy than I am currently having, being housebound with the worse pain imaginable from my back, currently making me the Brandon Roy of the fantasy basketball world. But unlike that of the aforementioned, hopefully I can bring a little cheer to the future of your dynasty team and not leave you hanging like the former all star did back in 2012; the show must go on.

So what of the week that was? Well, we are starting to see a little shape starting to take place with some of last year’s draftees getting some more run (ala Ivica Zubac, Jamal Murray, Timothe Luwawu and Thon Maker), things starting to settle down from the hype that was Malcolm Brogdon, and a two week period to forget for Brandon Ingram, who averaged just 5 points (over 25 mpg), and shot an ice cold 22% from the field averaging just 11.8 makes in 8 attempts over that stretch (not to panic though, there are better days ahead).

So what have I got for you this week? Well, we will be taking a little look at those whose draft stock has risen over the past week, for all you draft pick hunters, in the world of college basketball.

The weekend is here Razzball Nation, and you know what that means – another dose of prospect talk from across the pond from yours truly. With February nearly upon us, we are getting closer to crunch time and the madness that is March, with the NCAA tourney that will no doubt bring the usual feast of shocks, standout plays from the best college has to offer and disappointment for my Baylor Bears.

So what of this week? If you tuned in last week, you would have seen my updated rankings for 2017 NBA draft eligible players (and if you missed out then no worries, you can find it easy enough here) and as promised, this week brings you a Bird vs Bird style column (as stolen from one of my esteemed colleagues) of my top 2 candidates, Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball.
