3 key trends for fitness and sports in 2021

Gumtree has highlighted three key trends that will impact the fitness and sports sectors in 2021.

January is synonymous with the two extremes – stretching budgets to deal with the hangover of December’s balloon expenses while enduring January’s 45 weeks until payday and all the ‘new year, new me’ resolutions we make to shift the extra love-handles that December (and the months preceding) left us with.

Fantasy basketball forecaster – Feb. 8-14

Read below for the fantasy basketball Forecaster

In weekly transaction leagues, the schedule is one of the most important factors in determining how to fill out your fantasy basketball lineups. All fantasy teams have a hierarchy of player calibers, with a set of “best players” surrounded by a cast of lesser but still productive players from which to draw your weekly starting lineup.

All things being equal, a manager would start their best players every week and fill out the rest of their lineup based on things such as matchups. However, all things aren’t equal.

The schedule changes the bottom line, because teams can play a different number of games, against a different caliber of opponent, with different breakdowns of home vs. road, back-to-backs, rest nights, etc. All of these things matter, and as I’ve seen this season, they often matter more than a
