Fantasy Basketball 2021: Which players improved their stock during NBA preseason?

  Fantasy Basketball 2021: Which players improved their stock during NBA preseason? While almost everything in the preseason needs to be taken with a grain of salt, these players improved their draft stock with impressive performances leading into the regular season.While you don't need the preseason to evaluate players like Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant, James Harden, LeBron James, Anthony Davis or Stephen Curry, there are always a handful of players who thrive in a new situation, giving us a sneak peek at what they might have in store for the upcoming regular season.

With one of the NFL's best offenses and coming off a bye week, the stars seemingly align perfectly for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday when they host the team with the league's worst-ranked defense, the Miami Dolphins. Could it be a big day for Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs and Co.?

Fantasy football rankings for Week 8 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.

  Best Fantasy Basketball Team Names 2021 Here's our list of candidates for the best fantasy basketball team names of 2021. Good, clever, funny, awful -- we cover a wide range of NBA-related puns with this list.As we say every year, our list doesn't contain all of the "best fantasy basketball team names." In order to do that, we'd need more inappropriate phrases and inside jokes that we couldn't possibly publish here -- you know, stuff that only others in your league understand (or won't cancel you over). Instead, we just have a bunch of puns based on players' names.

  Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watchlist for Week 9: Streaming targets, free agent sleepers include Mark Ingram, Will Fuller, Evan Engram Now's the time for owners to stay ahead on the fantasy football waiver wire and scout potential free agent pickups. Ahead of Weeks 8 and 9, it could be smart to add guys like Mark Ingram, Will Fuller, Evan Engram and more as streaming options or lotto-ticket stashes.Our Week 9 waiver watchlist can help get ahead on potential top streaming targets. We'll continue to help you identify one-week solutions, but we're not giving up on finding season-long value either. The waiver wire might be getting thin, but as injuries mount and bye weeks remove your fantasy studs from action, we have to prepare for all scenarios.

Fantasy Football Buy-Low, Sell-High Stock Watch: Justin Jefferson, Jaylen Waddle among trade candidates heading into Week 9

  Fantasy Football Buy-Low, Sell-High Stock Watch: Justin Jefferson, Jaylen Waddle among trade candidates heading into Week 9 Is now the time to trade for Justin Jefferson, Jaylen Waddle, Mike Evans, D'Andre Swift, and , among other big-name fantasy football stars? The Fantasy Pros' staff breaks down some of the best buy-low, sell-high trade candidates in their Week 9 Stock Watch.It's important to look deeper than surface-level production. Targets and touches can be just as important as yards and touchdowns when trying to project for the future. After you do that, you need to look even deeper. Upcoming matchups, bye-week worries specific to your team, and potential playing time issues (are any teammates coming back from injuries?) can affect who you target or deem expendable. Take it all in and act accordingly.

Fantasy RB Rankings Week 10: Who to start, sit at running back in fantasy football .
With several key running backs returning from injuries and only a couple important runners out because of byes, things are looking up in Week 10 fantasy RB rankings.The four teams on bye -- Bears, Texans, Giants, Bengals -- don't possess the strongest group of backs. Joe Mixon will be missed, but fantasy owners are used to being without Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Montgomery. Khalil Herbert and Devontae Booker have certainly had their moments, but you can't be too upset when players you got on waivers less than a month ago are taking the week off. And you also can't be upset when David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay are on bye.
