As we roll into the 2012-'13 NBA season, we're going to take you through an overview of each of the six divisions. Who are key newcomers? Who are notable for your fantasy team? Last season was brutal with a late and sudden December start to an abbreviated season. We continue our previews with the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. Does Boston have another run left? How improved is Brooklyn with a healthy Brook Lopez and the addition of Joe Johnson? Are the Knicks ready for a run with the best front court in the Eastern Conference? And is Andrew Bynum durable enough to provide the post presence to support the perimeter rich Sixers? Toronto... in a case of the rich getting richer, one of first round picks that Oklahoma City received in the James Harden deal is going to be a Raptors lottery pick.
As we play out the final days of the 2011-'12 NBA regular season, we take a look at each franchise. Who emerged, what went wrong, what lies ahead.

Trading and proficiency in working the wavier wire and free agency also contribute towards fantasy success. Other than your talent staying healthy, the most important aspect in managing your fantasy roster is success in your draft or auction. Just like the stock market, acquiring assets at a price lower than value equates winning.
