Fantasy Basketball Risers and Fallers: Championship Week Edition

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

LaMarcus Aldridge is hot right in time for your Championship Week.

Well if you made it this far, than you are playing for the league’s title. Depending on your league rules, this week is certainly the week to take chances if you are desperate. Let’s say you have relied on the Beach Boy Kevin Love all season, only to see him questionable for the entire championship week. Well if that is the case you must: read the Risers and Fallers list to see who’s hot and who’s not, then make your move for the right guy to replace Mr. Love.

If you are playing in a standard non-keeper fantasy basketball league, dropping Mr. Love won’t hurt you if he doesn’t play.  If you can grab an Anthony Randolph, well you just may win your title. So to all you loyal readers and fantasy players – good luck in your title games.

Let’s get started with the final Risers and Fallers list of the season. (more…)
