ESPN | Tobias Harris is now SF/PF







My October 6 ESPN fantasy basketball draft was conducted poorly.

Not going to lie but some participants arrived late, the draft became offline, and the thing I hate the most is that I had to help my opponents and at the same time plan for my strategy and at the same time, do admin work.

So I like picking late in H2H points leagues because I would rather have a strong second round pick than an unpredictable but strong early first rounder but the key to the strategy’s success is to not get catfished by your friend/opponent. At 17th, I selected Nikola Vucevic because he is a double-double magnet. I got my first dual-positioned player in LaMarcus Aldridge at number 24 and I completed my draft with Tobias Harris, Buddy Hield, Reggie Jackson, Bojan Bogdanovic, Dj Augustin, Joe Harris, and PJ Tucker.

When I finished third in the same tourney, I had Aldridge, Augustin, and Joe Harris in my lineup. I always had my eye on Vucevic because he is a big man that can help fantasy teams in almost all categories.

But I think I had my received a boost when ESPN gave Tobias Harris a SF tag.

At the start of the draft… or at least when I made my cheat sheet, Harris is only a PF. ESPN, unlike Yahoo, is notorious for being tight-fisted in terms of positions. This is why getting Tobias that extra position is important especially in a 20-team, 9-rostered league. I also have concerns in my SF position. Bojan played awesome in Indiana but I don’t know if he can replicate this in Utah.

I also don’t know how Tobias will mesh with Joel Embiid and Al Horford but fact of the matter is, he’s a starter.

And that’s awesome.

I will also change my weekly gameplay. Daily leagues require teams to have an expendable slot to obtain additional points but I think it’s better to hunt on possible options and keep them in the long run. I’m probably looking at some of the rookies and a couple of injured vets that could be available in February like Jusuf Nurkic and Klay Thompson.
