Lakers Podcast: How valuable could Lonzo Ball be for fantasy basketball players?

New, comments

He’s probably going higher than you think. But is he worth the gamble?

NBA: Summer League-Brooklyn Nets at Los Angeles Lakers Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers being as popular as they are typically means one fairly consistent thing for those who play fantasy basketball: Their players get drafted much higher than they probably should be.

In mock drafts across the world thus far, that theme is holding just as true as ever, with Lakers going a good round or two higher than they should be. Even with that said, though, is there anyone on the roster worth the risk?

To answer that and plenty of other fantasy-related questions, we recorded a crossover pod with Josh Lloyd of “Locked on Fantasy Basketball,” just as we did before the season a year ago.

We went through new additions to the team, looked back on the impact some of those who are gone might have had and also ask some team-wide questions, seeing as the win total projections from Las Vegas are out.

But before we got to that, we discussed the latest about Lamar Odom during a brief intro. All that and more on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.
