If your interest in this book is in taking your fantasy basketball game to the next level then “Drinking and Drafting” might as well have been written for you personally! Fantasy basketball is a lot of fun, but it takes quite a bit of skill and effort to be a great manager. This book will help you know when and where to focus your efforts and how to best tweak your own approach to team management in order to fit your personal strengths / weakness.
I’ve been playing fantasy basketball for more than a decade and over I’ve created multiple tools for team managers to analyze trades, compare players, and even analyze entire teams based on scheduling and other factors. I’m probably the only fantasy basketball author who has coded an entire fantasy basketball scoring system and hosted fantasy leagues on my own systems. The time I have spent studying fantasy basketball and the things I’ve learned through the development of my own systems is a big part what makes me comfortable writing this book. I decided that if I was to write a book for fantasy basketball managers then I wanted to go all. I set out to produce something that would show others the tricks of trade to become better players and that will provide huge value to readers, and this book is the culmination of that effort.
A large portion of the book focuses on fantasy basketball "strategery" - the act of developing and carrying out a strategy. Yes, it's a bogus word - I know! The prominent use of the word in the title will hopefully be a sign to the reader that the book is written in a light hearted and down to earth way. But have no doubt that it is packed full of useful information for fantasy basketball managers.
Here’s a quick listing of the types of things discussed:
- Different fantasy basketball strategies and how to choose which one you want to use -How to initially rank players and how to customize / tweak your rankings - Drafting strategies - Team management tips for during the regular season, playoffs, and offseaon (keeperleagues) - Trade analysis fundamentals and how to maximize your chances of getting deals done - Lots more!
