Superstars Draft Analysis

The draft is now complete! With 3 weeks until the season starts, we can now analyse the teams and people can start to find who they want to barrack for. With a little help from each and every one of you, we will rank the teams from 1-12 to determine who you think deserves to be at the top of the power rankings.

One thing was certain from the second round, the guys all had their own strategy. We witnessed teams punting all types of categories and let’s face it, with the level of competition and fantasy smarts in this league, it was going to be an uphill battle to build a 9 cat juggernaut.

THE TEAMS.

Let’s take a stroll through the league and break down how the teams fared. I’ll list the teams in draft order so as to make it easy for everyone…..

There you have it, the draft results for the inaugural Superstars of Fantasy season. Keep an eye out today for a full, in depth analysis of each team.

The Draft is almost here

With the draft a little over a few weeks away, I am sure the guys have a few ideas of their strategies already. Personally I have planned my draft strategy at 5 picks deep for every position, just because my ocd doesn’t allow me to enter anything unprepared ;).

I have attached a couple of the league teasers for you. Keep an eye out in the next few weeks as we take the Superstars of Fantasy live and uncensored for the entire season.

Have a great day.

BUILDING A MONSTER

When you break it down to its simplest form, the sole purpose of playing fantasy ball is building the best possible team you can. The added advantage is meeting some great people and for me with the Worldwide Fantasy leagues, some of the closest lifelong friends I have had the pleasure of meeting. We even have one league in its second year now that we get together to draft live.

Mate ship aside, we all still want to kick everyone else’s ass in the league though 🙂

History in the making

On October 3rd 2015 at 4pm ET, history will be made. For the first time ever, a global industry fantasy league will be coming to you live, without censorship and with every single move available for viewing by the general public. You will see every waiver wire add, every trade and will be able to communicate via Twitter with some of the best fantasy analysts in fantasy basketball as they go head to head, every week for a shot at glory.

The league is a 12 team head to head bonanza, with scoring set at 9 categories. The men involved have more than 100 years of combined experience between them and already go to superhuman lengths to help you win your fantasy league.

Drafting By Numbers

The percentage chance of winning your head to head, fantasy basketball snake draft.

Just how much difference does draft positioning in a snake draft make to your chances of winning? Is it as skewed as people claim it to be? You don’t have to hold your breath because I am going to show you.

THE INTRODUCTION


THE SUPERSTARS 

Welcome fantasy fans to the raw and bare all Superstars of Fantasy Challenge. We have constructed a juggernaut of a league that leaves no stone unturned in search for the ultimate fantasy monster. If this battle was hand to hand combat, it would be the UFC’s ugly big brother, held in a barbed wire cage. It will be a brutal battle, one with more bite than Mike Tyson and will make you tap faster than a Ronda Rousey armbar.

What we have planned for you this coming season is a weekly view of how we fantasy analysts do what we do. Every week I will break down the head to head battles, the outstanding waiver wire pickups and a little insight from some of your favourite fantasy analysts. You’ll get to see some beautiful beards, hear a plethora of sweet serenading voices and a couple of faces constructed purely for radio as the battle will spill out onto the streets, YouTube and podcasts all season long. All year you will be able to view the transactions HERE .

Without further adieu, allow me to introduce the superstars.
