Fantasy basketball: What LaMelo Ball's hot start means for his fantasy value

Perhaps so many fantasy basketball analysts -- and my hands are up -- would have viewed Charlotte Hornets rookie point guard LaMelo Ball differently if he simply did not have an older brother. I realize it sounds quite foolish to describe that way, but Ball, who will not turn 20 years old for seven more months, certainly appears to be a far better statistical option than New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball, who is four years older and remains every bit the poor shooter we thought he would be.
