Stay ahead of the competition as we dive deep into each week’s schedule, analyzing matchups, player rotations, and critical insights to help you make the right moves and secure victory in your fantasy league. Whether you’re a seasoned manager or just starting, our in-depth previews will be your trusted companion throughout the season.

As we eagerly await Tuesday’s games, take this opportunity to fine-tune your fantasy basketball lineups. Striking the right balance between dependable production and upside is the key to success. Throughout the week, we’ll gain valuable insights into the strategies of NBA coaches across the league and the roles of our key players. Until now, we have based our decisions on projections, but depending on your league format, be bold in acquiring players with roles that appear more favorable than initially predicted.

However, in the same breath, remember the importance of patience. Give your players time to settle into their roles, but also be ready to pivot if it becomes clear that some are stuck in more limited positions. Flexibility and informed decision-making will be your allies in navigating the fantasy basketball landscape this season.

Fantasy Notes:

  • Back-to-Backs: The schedule starts in a hurry. There are nine back-to-backs in the first week, beginning on Friday/Saturday.
  • Waiver Wire flexibility: By next week, we will have key waiver wire additions to target, but for this week, see how your roster shakes out. You likely took a big swing towards the end of your draft. Give them a little time, then move on quickly in week two or three if they need a path to fantasy relevance.
  • James Harden Situation: There is confusion as to whether Harden will play the three games scheduled for the 76ers this week, despite being healthy and on the roster. If he decides not to play, look for the 76ers to settle into a new pecking order on offense that highlights more playmaking from Tyrese Maxey and gives offensive opportunity to newly acquired Kelly Oubre Jr. De’Anthony Melton could emerge as a significant streamer if Harden continues to sit long term.
