NBA MVP Power Rankings – The Contenders

Let’s take a look at the early contenders for MVP. Feel free to comment with your top 3 and let’s start a discussion. Personally, I define MVP as the player who has or is having the best season. We all know LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world, but he doesn’t always put together a better season than everybody else. I also don’t like the argument for MVP being guided by the idea of “well if you took him off the team, how bad would they be performing?” In my opinion, Read More

NBA DFS Fantasy Basketball Best Value Picks– Nov. 20, 2017

The Studs Damian Lillard, PG, Portland Trail Blazers ($8,300) Dame has been off with his shot lately and is facing a stout defensive team in Memphis. That doesn't mean you shouldn't consider him. Perennial All-Stars like Lillard go off at the slightest hints and his salary is the lowest since the start of November. Plus, the Grizzlies won't be playing Mike Conley because of an Achilles issue so Lillard has one less problem there. Jimmy Butler, SG, Minnesota Timberwolves ($7,500) Butler has Read More

NBA DFS Best Value Picks– Nov. 17, 2017

The Studs   Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Pistons ($8,900) Drummond is as consistent as they come, having sub-40 FP games only twice in the past 10. In a previous matchup against the Pacers earlier this month, Drummond torched them with 14 and 21 with 4 assists and a block (47.75 fantasy points). Indiana is among the league's worst in defending opposing centers so there's a chance Drummond could follow that up with another solid game. Lonzo Ball, PG, Los Angeles Lakers ($7,100) OK, it Read More

NBA DFS Pick’Em Strategy on Nov. 16 – 2017

Only 2 games to pick from tonight, but 3 of the 4 teams are loaded with fantasy talent. I took Joel Embiid in my DFS draft last night and he scored 90+ points. Let’s see if we can pick out some similar gems for tonight’s matchups. Tier 1: Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving My Choice: Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS Boston’s defense is legit; they have the 2nd best defensive rating relative to league average since 1976. Jump shooters are just 16 for 51 from behind the three-point line against Read More

NBA Rookie Power Rankings

With 4 weeks of the NBA season in the books, we’ve had enough of a sample size to take stock of the rookies so far this year. Ranking rookies is always tough since some are thrust into starting roles, while others are able to ease into things off the bench. Some are on contenders, surrounded by stars, and others are not. Here’s a reminder of the top 5 picks from this year’s draft: 76ers: Markelle Fultz (G) - Washington Lakers: Lonzo Ball (G) - UCLA Celtics: Jayson Tatum (F) - Read More

Players to Target in NBA DFS on Nov. 13 – 2017

Kevin Durant, SF/PF, GS ($9,700) Durant filled up the stat sheet on Saturday with 29 points (11-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks against the 76ers. Durant is cheaper than both the twin towers from New Orleans and with Steph Curry unlikely to play tonight that means Durant will do most of the heavy lifting for the Warriors. Ben Simmons, PG/SF, PHI ($8,500) Patrick Beverly is out for tonight’s game which should open up passing and driving lanes for Simmons. Read More

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks– Nov. 11, 2017

The Studs Kristaps Porzingis, PF/C, New York Knicks ($9,400) The Unicorn is still technically questionable for Saturday's game against Sacramento, but the fact that he went through full practice on Friday and Jeff Hornacek expects him to be ready is an encouraging sign. Porzingod is an absolute fantasy beast this season, topping the 50-FP plateau in half of the 10 games he's played. Jeff Teague, PG, Minnesota Timberwolves ($6,800) Since Porzingis already had the bulk of the salary, you can Read More

NBA DFS Players to Avoid on Nov. 9 – 2017

Lonzo Ball, PG, LAL ($6,000) Lonzo totaled 9 points, 6 assists and 4 blocks in 39 minutes last night against the Celtics. Lonzo was clearly overmatched by Kyrie Irving, and I bet having to chase Irving around all night contributed to his poor performance on offense. He was just 1-5 from 3-point range, and most of his points came on floaters in the lane, or on aggressive drives to the basket while the Celtics were getting back on defense. Obviously, tonight will be his second game in as many Read More

Pick’Em DFS NBA Strategy for Nov. 8 – 2017

  Tier 1 Steph Curry, PG, GSW Talk about a tough choice. This tier makes us choose between Kevin Durant, Karl-Anthony Towns, Kyrie Irving and Curry. You really can’t lose here, but I like Steph Curry’s chances of taking advantage of the Wolves’ guards tonight. Minnesota ranks 29th against opposing point guards, and Curry is due for a big game. Steph is averaging just 19.7 PPG in November, but I think Minnesota’s focus will be on stopping Durant and Draymond Green from driving to Read More

NBA DFS Basketball Best Value Picks– Nov. 8, 2017

NBA DFS Basketball Best Value Picks-- Nov. 8, 2017 The Studs Kyrie Irving, PG, Boston Celtics ($8,800) Kyrie has been amazingly consistent all year and has just dropped his first 50-FP game of the season against Atlanta. He is ranked second only to Steph Curry in terms of FPPG at the point guard position on Wednesday's slate of games on $500 less.  Plus, we know how Irving loves the spotlight on big games and the rivalry outing against the Lakers exactly fits the bill. Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Read More
