Fantasy Basketball Is Fun Because of Steve Nash

As soon as Steve Nash officially hung up his sneakers sometime last week, I was grinning from ear to ear, if not visibly, deep down inside my heart. No, not that I hate the guy-- it's quite the opposite-- but it's like looking at your terminally ill relative deciding to put down resistance for today and decided to postpone the war later. Only, not in this present world. Heaps of praise and support rained on Canada's first true NBA star and naturally, conversations shifted from how he blew the Los Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice March 29

Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice March 29 All nine games of NBA action and one good day of daily fantasy basketball. The Studs Reggie Jackson, PG ($8,300) Reggie Jackson has been very good for the Pistons lately. But a lot of people in this league are very good, so how good exactly? How about Westbrook-esque? Jackson had two triple-doubles in two of the last four and again flirted with one in 37 minutes of work against Boston. Will he do that again against Miami? I'm willing to bet. Nerlens Read More

6 Future Breakout Stars in NBA Fantasy

It's very seldom for young studs to go right on and be statistically dominant right away. As such, growing pains are to expected, and it sometimes take very long, too. However, more often than not, these young players have shown capabilities that sometimes belie their ages. They may be 15-20 minute rotation guys now or buried at the end of the bench for long stretches or being taken for the ride as soon as they boarded the ship. Regardless, let's stop the guessing game and get right to it. Here Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice March 28

Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice March 28 It's only five games but there are a lot of golden opportunities to win if you look these players' way this Saturday. The Studs LaMarcus Aldridge, PF ($8,700) LA has been somewhat inconsistent the past four games--scoring in the 40's and 50's sandwiched by games of the 20 and 30-point variety. So how ill Saturday night go? There's no way to tell but the match-up suggests it could probably be the former. In the two rather poor games, Aldridge locked horns Read More

Daily Fantasy Lineup Advice March 25

Daily Fantasy Lineup Advice March 25 Thirteen games on a Thursday evening means it's time to party. Here are some guys worth a look on March 25. The Studs DeMarcus Cousins, C ($9,700) Call him DMC, call him Boogie, this kid is scary good. Cousins bullied Philadelphia to post 33 and 17 with three assists, four steals, and four blocks-- good for 7 and a half Fantasy Points. That's about as high as anyone can get without having a triple double! The Kings visit the Suns next and while they may Read More

Playoff Pick-ups: Players To Bolster Your Fantasy Playoff Push

It's playoff time and most likely, some of your best players and glue guys--or a mixture of both-- are either hurt  or resting. If that's the case, here are some top playoff pickups to help your fantasy playoff push. Donatas Motiejunas, PF/C As far as multi-category bigs go, D-Mo is probably the best that's still available in standard leagues right now. He doesn't swat many shots at that position, but you can't be picky because he contributes in just about everything else. His value just Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 22

Here are some players you might want to look at in Sunday's 11-game slate. Again, no Russell Westbrook in here. Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 22 The Studs John Wall, PG ($8,700) You know what stuff a basketball player is made of when they play hurt AND still play well. John Wall brushed off a sore ankle against Utah and dropped 44 FP against the Clippers. Against Sacramento, there'll be no unfavorable match-up for the quick guard so something in the 40-50 range is inevitably Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 20

Rudy Gobert messed up everybody's lineup last night and by everybody, I meant me and more than a third of daily fantasy basketball junkies that spent 16% of their cap for the French center. If you've been here long enough, you can do a lot with $8100. And for the most part in that ugly game at Staples, it was an undrafted slotman out of Kansas,with around $3000 worth of DK salary, that played like the best center on the court. To sum it up, it was a night of disappointment. Anthony Davis hurt Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 19

Today's game day isn't much-- only a four-game slate-- but there's no day-offs when it comes to DFS right? It just never stops. Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 19 The Studs Rudy Gobert, C ($8,100) It's getting redundant putting James Harden in the studs list so let's go a different, but likewise a very rewarding route. Rudy Gobert's fantasy numbers are absolutely unreal more so in a daily standpoint, getting almost 44 points in the past 10 days. We have one reason to be optimistic Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Strategy: Finding the Rebounds

When setting your daily fantasy basketball lineups on say, FanDuel, you're going to need to identify which power forwards and centers to roster. Sometimes it's easy when you have enough value elsewhere in your lineup to roster Anthony Davis or DeMarcus Cousins, but sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to decide or break the tie between a couple of centers to pick just the right one. One way you can do this is by trying to identify who has the better floor to begin with. Points scored are Read More
