    I thought I'd kick off a thread that could be weekly or ongoing with Fantasy NBA recaps and discussion.

    I can't be bothered listing all the scores of each matchup in each division (you all know whether you won or lost), but I wanted to kick it off by listing the Top 5 Fantasy Scorers for each of the first two weeks.

    Week 1:
    Giannis Antetokounmpo - 252
    Anthony Davis - 234
    DeMarcus Cousins - 208
    Nicola Vucevic - 208
    James Harden - 192

    Week 2:
    DeMarcus Cousins - 277 (in 3 games!)
    LeBron James - 260
    Steph Curry - 256
    Kevin Durant - 255
    Andre Drummond - 230

    Have actually been checking in regularly to see if anything has been put up, but can also understand that both @anthak and @Steve are pretty busy.
    Wrapt to have the Freak star for Pist'N'Broke in week 1 and Drummond in week 2 - 2 n zip from the first 2 matchups and continued the streak in week 3 :) Looking to completely dominate div2 conf1 this season :D

    Thanks for setting this up @Rad_E_Cool

    Unfortunately I don't have the time anymore to do the weekly write-ups as I have too many things happening at the moment.

    Happy to finally get a win on the board for this year and score the highest score in the Premier League this season. Nurko and Brolo started the season off slowly but they are now turning things around :)

    Have had to hit the FA list hard to make up for some of my mistakes in the draft.

    All while still trying to pass himself off as being a left-handed shooter. Check the updated stats on what he prefers when taking jumpers (which he's bad at) vs all other shots (which he's good at): https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/naG...asset/file/9617279/simmons_hand_FINAL__1_.png

    3rd time in 4 games that I've lost after leading going into the final day.

    Well done @walesy good game, we had similar overall games played and your mob was too good.

    My turn today.
    Going into today, I wasn't sure whether to go for the win. I was content with my squad and wasn't sure whether i should burn any of them. I thought, even if I did drop 2 of them several things would still have to go my way to get the W anyway.... but it worked out ok.

    I dropped Henson and Norm Powell. Picked up Wayne Ellington and Tyus Jones, who scored 120 between them.
    Added to this, @Steve had Alex Len who picked up his 2nd DNPCD in his last 3 games.
    Somehow I won the day by 147 to get a 20pt win :)

    Tough luck Steve. I know how that feels as I've been run down a few times already this season. Sorry, but I'm glad I got the W this time ;)

    Lou-Will with a cool 42 points and 75 fantasy points. It's probably up there with my biggest fantasy regrets, dropping him before Beverley went down. His average was high 20s from memory. He's gone for 46 fantasy points per game since then :-(
