Fantasy Basketball ROS: 2 Bridges On The Rise

All-Star break is now behind us, and now we are looking forward to seeing how the second half plays out. We want to highlight two players that New Life Fantasy feel are on the rise. That’s right! The two Bridges, Mikal and Miles, are on the rise. Same last name but no relation. If you are an owner of either of these players, you should be grinning from ear to ear.


Fantasy Basketball Bridges

Let me just provide a few points on why we feel that these two players are going to have a strong second half.

Mikal Bridges


Let’s talk about minutes played. Since October, Mikal’s minutes have been slowly increasing. In October, he averaged 18:27 minutes per game compared to the 33:51 he is averaging in the first seven games of February. Let’s take a look at exactly how he has taken advantage of this increased playing time.


Back in October, he was averaging around 3.4 PPG. He has seen that total spike nine points per game and is now averaging 123 PPG. Also, his efficiency has increased as well. He went from shooting 40% from the field to now a little over 50%.


Do you like what you're hearing so far? Well, keep on reading because it only gets better!


His three-point attempts have increased as well. He is almost attempting four three-pointers per game and he is averaging 1.7 3PM. Wow! Those are some nice snipe stats.

At the beginning of the season, he was only averaging 1.2 attempts per game and only averaging 0.8 snipes a game. I don’t know about you, but I like that increase.


Maybe you aren’t 100% sold on these stats alone, but take a look at the other stats below. If you are in a 9 category league you are going to like what you see.


The Month of January(15 game span)



The Month of February (7 game span)




Just let those stats sink in. If he continues to average the playing time that he is currently seeing, he should continue to produce in these categories with the potential to increase some of these totals.


Now let's talk about Miles Bridges!


Miles Bridges


Since December, Miles Bridges has seen his minutes increase and opportunity is all you need to be relevant in fantasy.

The most impressive stat that sticks out to me is his FGA. He was averaging 9.8 in December, but now in the last 6 games, he is averaging around 16 FGA while shooting 45%. I like the fact that Charlotte is allowing him to shoot the ball, and it helps that Charlotte is a wasteland team.

I also like the fact that his 3PA has increased, although we would like to see his 3P% higher than 30%. I anticipate that this will come up a tad, and he has the potential to increase it to around 35%. In the 54 games (Pre-All Star Break) his 3P% is 34%.


Here is a quick look at his other stats:


The Month of January(12 game span)



The Month of February (6 game span)



His rebounds have seen an increase and he is creeping closer to averaging 1 steal and 1 block per game.

What Bridge should you trust the most?


After giving that quick overview of both Bridges, you may be asking yourself which Bridge you should trust or will both have a solid second half?


Honestly, you can trust both. I would break it down like this: in a 9cat league, I would prefer Mikal over Miles just because of the misc. stats. As far as points leagues go, I would prefer Miles as he is averaging more points, FGA, and 3PA.


Again, take a look at your team and see what areas you need the most help in. If you need 3's and points, go with Miles. If you need help in all areas, I would lean more towards Mikal.

If you are an owner of either of these guys don’t drop them. Hold on to them as the arrow is trending upwards for both of these guys.


I hope you enjoyed this article and we always welcome your thoughts on what we write.
