As the NFL Fantasy season dies down, most sports fans are out of their league playoffs and looking at the horizon of their next move. Start preparing for the next NFL season that is many months away? Boring! Try playing fantasy basketball, hockey, even baseball which is soon approaching. My choice is fantasy basketball and will introduce you to a new type of fantasy experience that requires NO in-season adjustments that often make the fantasy experience way to time consuming.
Best Ball is a newer style of fantasy sports that allows you to focus solely on the draft and involves zero waivers, trades, or BS throughout the season. With NBA teams playing multiple games throughout the week, there can be a lot to keep track of. Playing NBA Best Ball on the Underdog app gives you a simple way to try out fantasy basketball.
With a new style that simplifies the way you construct a roster, and minimizes the position groups, it is relatively simple:
- (G) Guards : Start 2
- (W) Wings : Start 2
- (B) Bigs : Start 1
- Flex : Start 1
The total roster size is 16, and scoring is tallied weekly. Your highest scorers for any given week will be your starters (based on position groups). With this being the inaugural season for this new contest, anyone has a chance to take home the $200,000 grand prize in the 2020 NBA Best Ball Championship. As the start of the NBA season draws near, I will take you through roster construction strategies, rankings, sleepers and busts, as well as any other topics you want to know about regarding NBA Best Ball.
