I lost a fantasy writer over the weekend, so I am taking over this column temporarily .. and we’re going to have some fun with it.

The aim in fantasy basketball is to win money. I don’t care if you play in a season-long league in which you hold a draft or an auction, or if you play in daily leagues, like the ones we sponsor through DraftStreet. We are all trying to cash. (I love using “cash” as a verb.)

For those who are new to this, I plan to make it easy for you. For those who have been doing this already, I will offer my insight.

I warn you to take it with a grain of salt.
