Which fantasy basketball hot starts are sustainable?


With over a month of the 2016-17 NBA season gone (and with some of us sporting 0-5 records in our fantasy basketball leagues) there are several surprising trends that may just be the new normal. Some players are on pace for career years, while some so-called “sleepers” have yet to wake up. So which of these statistical hot or cold starts are most likely to continue?

To help us find out, Josh Lloyd (@redrock_bball) joins Fastbreak Breakfast to talk all things fantasy basketball. Josh is an analyst for Basketball Monster and the host of Locked on Fantasy Basketball. He offers his expertise and advice on which players are due for regression and which ones he would try to trade for. And exactly when I should pull the plug on my 0-5 dynasty team (HINT: now).


  • 10:15 What are the Orlando Magic doing with their rotations? Will Aaron Gordon ever get a chance to fulfill his potential?

  • 17:30 Kristaps Porzingis and Myles Turner so far have fulfilled the potential shown by their promising rookie campaigns. Will their huge seasons continue?
  • 20:00 With Anthony Davis regularly putting up numbers that exceed the rest of the New Orleans Pelican staters combined, should fantasy owners try to cash in on his unbelievable start? Or is trying to plan against potential injuries a fruitless endeavor?
  • 24:00 How much regression is due from Mike Conley, Kevin Love, and Nick Young?
  • 29:00 When is it time to talk about Devin Booker maybe being not-so-good?
