With the All-Star break right around the corner, at this point in the season, you pretty much know what you’re going to get from most teams and players, but a second half slump is always a dangerous possibility. Through 13 weeks in the FLuD Watches “Barksdale & Bell” fantasy basketball league, Team SneakerNews stands at an impressive 11-1-1 in head-to-head play, good for second place in the league at the moment and showing no signs of slowing down. And while a fall-off is certainly possible, we like what we’re seeing from the squad and this past week’s 6-3 win over the Rocksmith Ninjas was the latest evidence. We take on league commissioner FLuD Watches this week, so we’ll be out to keep up our winning ways and ruin their fantasy week. Check out the Team SN roster and league standings after the jump and check back next week for the latest results.
TEAM SNEAKERNEWS WEEK 13 MVP
Antawn Jamison – A perennial across-the-board fantasy contributor, we expected big things from Jamison when we drafted him this year, but so far his time in Cleveland has been a big disappointment. That said, let’s hope this week was a sign of things to come as Antawn averaged 25 points, 7 rebounds and 2 3PTM per game over the last week of NBA action.
