Phase one of my balls out quest to go on a winning streak is coming to fruition. With 8 weeks left in the fantasy basketball season, if I can keep the streak alive, I’ve got more than a fighting chance! Right now I sit at 6-5 after wining 4 straight match ups. This section of the schedule is brutal, though, but I did beat one of the top dogs last week, just barely.
I’ve tossed a lot of talent out in the last week or two, including Jimmy Butler, Carlos Boozer, and Ryan Anderson. But now I have a couple spots to play with, and I’ve been fluidly filling and replacing them for added games during the week. Plus, this has allowed me to key on players who are hot at the moment, including Darren Collison, Randy Foye, and Kendall Marshall.
This week I’m playing a good friend, and although I really like him, I definitely want to avenge myself of the curse of DeAndre Jordan, who he swooped up after I dropped him for Spencer Hawes before the season started. After one day, I’m up a bit, but I’ve definitely gotta be on my game the next month or so if I aim to make the playoffs.
