Fantasy Basketball: Add Dewayne Dedmon Before it’s Too Late

Written By:  Justin Holden

As I write this article, my ESPN fantasy basketball team currently sits at a record of 10-2, which makes me tied for first place.  I’m ranked second in my league for total points scored and have made the most FA moves out of anybody.  Therefore, you can take it to the bank that I know a thing or two about free agent adds.

Dewayne Dedmon (Center, Atlanta Hawks) was a staple utility player for my team prior to suffering a stress fracture in his leg, which caused him to miss several weeks of action.  Prior to injury, Dewayne Dedmon was a highly efficient fantasy basketball asset, posting double digit fantasy points on a consistent basis despite averaging under 30 minutes of playing time per game.  He also carried the upside of posting 20+, 30+, and even 40+ fantasy point games on occasion…without the downside of any negative fantasy point outings that one might see from an inefficient guard that misses a lot of shots.

Dewayne Dedmon has officially returned from injury and is still only owned in 16.1% of ESPN fantasy basketball leagues.  This is ludicrous.  Dedmon should be owned in every league that has 12 or more teams, and I’d even go as far to say all 10 team leagues that have an increased amount of bench spots.

Dedmon has posted 12 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 2 blocks, and 15 points through two games since returning from injury.  He’s not quite at full health yet and is logging limited minutes, but Dedmon will soon overtake Miles Plumlee for the starting center position in the Atlanta Hawks lineup.  It’s really just a matter of time for him to get back to dominant and efficient play, with an increased number of minutes on the court to boot.  Consider this my official tout of Dewayne Dedmon.  Pick him up now before he goes on another hot streak and it’s too late!Atlanta Hawks Media Day


We Have Arrived

In the beginning it was Max Literature Group, or M.L.G….

MLG logo
MLG was created by Gerald Royster and his now fiancé, Colleen, as a way to self publish, promote, and expose the world to Gerald’s ability as an independent writer. Gerald’s interest expanded to YouTube as a way to broaden his art in a different medium.

Gerald knew he wanted to expand to YouTube but hadn’t come up with any plans on how 2DA35D97-BD49-413E-8672-A7567954B81Cto begin. Until one night when he was having wings with his very close friends, Justin Holden and Alex Hull. ESPN was on the TV and it started a discussion between Gerald and Justin that doing a sports show would be cool; they could talk about the sports they wanted to talk about. Alex is a local Filmmaker with Maryland film company Chill Out Productions, and the three of them realized that this was a golden idea. The heart of Lit Sports Online was born!

CouchSide was created between Gerald and his best friend, Mario Meza. They were hanging out, sitting on the couch, talking about how horrible modern rap music has become. The 20+ minute discussion on the topic gave them the idea of doing something like that on camera. It was that moment where they came up with the show, CouchSide.

The idea for two completely different shows were created! Gerald, Mario, Alex, and Justin, all friends, decided to bring together their varying arts, knowledge, and ideas. LitTube was IMG_1025now officially created under the MLG organization. The first just the guysbroadcast for LitTube was in September of 2016. The broadcast was an episode of Lit Sports Online. It was an NFL Season Preview show starring Justin and Gerald. A week later, the first episode of CouchSide premiered featuring Mario and Gerald. All of LitTube is filmed and edited by Alex hull of Chill Out Productions.
