We've checked in on big men around the Association, lets move on to swing men. What are swing men you may be asking? Swing men are players that qualify at shooting guard, small forward, combo forward or in some cases, guard/forward. Swing men are typically your best all-around players who almost always contribute in the scoring category. Swing men are also those you see moved in and out of rosters the most. Lets take a look at those swing men that are beginning to populate rosters and those that have been, or should be on the chopping block. As a reminder, always check your own league for position eligibility.

When dealing with investments, its advisable to buy low and sell high and fantasy sports are no different. Have a player who is outpeforming or overachieving? Time to move him before reality balances the numbers. Is a stud player off to a slow start? Law of averages suggests he will have to exceed the norm in order to balance things out. Its difficult for many in fantasy sports to execute this policy and sometimes it does backfire. While this applies to trading, you should also buy low when considering waiver moves.
