Our Last-Minute Fantasy Rankings

Jim Adair - September 9, 2015


These (last-minute) rankings come from Neighbor Mike, who will be our fantasy advice guru throughout the season, mostly for daily fantasy leagues.

Neighbor Mike is not some gimmicky fantasy schlub hiding behind a pen name. His name really is Mike, and he’s literally Kyle’s (potentially degenerate) neighbor. He’s also obscenely good at fantasy sports. He’s a husband, father, son, fantasy man-steed. The kind of guy that works out all year so he can get fat again in football season. He once cut a rabbit’s head off with his lawnmower. He’s won every league he’s ever played in (or so he says), and lately has been dominating Draft Kings, where last year he was a fourth quarter away (in basketball) from being one of those guys you read about in the papers. He’s a fantasy sports addict and will be making his weekly Draft Kings calls all season long. To start, he’s willing to put his season-long league rankings up against any of the experts and encourages you to hold him to these rankings, which he says are pure perfection. This, is his measuring stick:

Kyle Scott - February 4, 2014

Our friends over at Draft Street are giving away $150,000 in a one-day only fantasy basketball league tomorrow. It’s $22 to play (you can use PayPal– I did) and the top 1,000 finishers will win money, with the winner earning… carry the 2, $50k. There is a limit of only 7,500 participants, so you have basically a 1-in-7 chance of winning at least something. Right now, there are only 2,300 participants registered.

It takes two seconds to pick your team. It’s a no-brainer signup if you’re a fantasy sports player. Here’s all you need to do:

That’s it. I got Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and Kyle Lowry as my three stars.

We’ve worked with Draft Street for a few years now. Good guys. Great service. No bullshit, no strings. On Christmas, jakam31 won $25,000 in one day playing NBA Fantasy. It was the first cash game he ever played in. Daily NBA fantasy tournaments can be won by anyone.

I figured since Paul Holmgren plays fantasy hockey, I would go with the Flyers’ strategy for my team– overspend on a goalie, bring back ex-forwards, and completely ignore the defense. Maybe it will work in faksies land:
