The 2022-2023 Fantasy Basketball Season is here! While we wait for Tuesday to arrive, use this time to tinker with your lineups and find your combination of reliable production and upside. As this week unfolds, we will get true insight into the intentions of NBA coaches around the league. At this point, we have built our strategy on projections, so depending on your league format, don’t be afraid to pounce on the players with more advantageous roles than projected. At the same time, exercise patience with your players but don’t be afraid to pivot from players that are in a more limited role.
The beginning of the season offers opportunities to score big talent off the waiver wire. Good luck and let’s enjoy what looks to be a great season!
