NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks Oct. 28

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks Oct. 28 The Studs Steph Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors (vs Pelicans), $9,300 Do you really think the Warriors are going to lose two games in a row to start the season? And Steph Curry putting up only 30.3 fantasy points the next game? I can't really imagine another scenario other than Curry and the gang smoking the Pelicans while the two-time MVP catching fire en route to a 45-50 FP game. I can pretty much say the same for Kevin Durant but KD is $300 more expensive Read More

2016 NBA Fantasy Basketball Team Outlook: Oklahoma City Thunder

The OKC Thunder won't be as good as they were in previous seasons. You may already know why but that only makes things more interesting for the Thunder fantasy-wise. Some guys will and should be ready to step up without Kevin Durant and it would be fun watching Russell Westbrook go and try to replicate Oscar Robertson's triple-double season just too keep them in hunt for a playoff berth. As much as we talk about Durant leaving, the Thunder also made noticeable changes to their core. They shipped Read More

5 More Fantasy Basketball Sleepers Spotted During NBA Preseason

Everything in the NBA preseason should be taken with a grain of salt for a lot of reasons. Coaches sit starters half the time, training camp invitees play a lot, and there just wasn't enough to go around. On the other hand, however, coaches use this time to see what they can get out of their new recruits or second-year players. That said, not everyone disappoints, as these 5 players below have shown. They may need to prove themselves more to earn playing time in the regular season but we sure Read More

NBA Fantasy Basketball Team Outlook: Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics teams of decades past (maybe except the mid-90's) always revolved around superstars. From Larry Bird and Kevin McHale to Antoine Walker, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen, it's the franchise's way of securing winning campaigns and championships. However, the past few years hasn't been that way. You can't fault GM Danny Ainge for not trying, but superstars are hard to come by. That turned out to be a positive in fantasy basketball since Brad Stevens was forced Read More

3 Fearless Predictions For The 2016-17 Fantasy Basketball Season

Fantasy sports is more or less based around projections. It is the equivalent of the scientific method except it's pretty much all about educated guesses and an experiment is not a possibility. And we know how our minds mess with us sometimes (or in my case, ALL THE TIME). Our brains, for some reason, work a little faster than the rest of our body at times and VOILA! WE say things that we probably regret later, but we have to say it anyways. This time, I'll go ahead and offer my three fearless Read More

5 Players To Avoid In 2016 Fantasy Basketball Drafts

Fantasy basketball is not an exact science but the fun of it all is that you can predict (or project) pretty much how everything will go on. Until injuries and Gregg Popovich mess everything up, that is. Kidding aside, as much as there are breakout candidates, there are also players who deserve the "bust" label. Of course, they may not actually "suck" per se, but because of reduced roles, much better teammates, etc., they probably will not be as productive as previously thought. For example, because Read More

Life Without Ben: Fantasy Impact Of Ben Simmons Injury

The Philadelphia 76ers just couldn't catch a break. Sixers prized rookie Ben Simmons went down with a foot injury during training camp. Currently, no timetable has been set yet for his return. That is bad news for Philadelphia, who hopes the 19-year-old will be spearheading them to a much-improved season. For now, the future is again put on hold as Simmons is confirmed to have broken the fifth metatarsal bone of his foot. Even though the team has not said anything about surgery or a return, we Read More
