NBA DFS Players to Target – Dec. 18, 2017

Ben Simmons, PF, PHI ($9,900) Simmons scored 48.2 FP on Friday against OKC. He’s had the whole weekend to rest, and he gets a good matchup with the lowly Bulls tonight. Joel Embiid is sitting out tonight for rest, which means Simmons is in for a huge workload and more rebounds. He’s being priced below Towns, Westbrook, Harden and Durant, but has a legit chance to be a top 3 performer tonight. Kemba Walker, PG, CHA ($8,000) Kemba Walker is as stable as they come. He’s averaging a solid 36.7 Read More

Kobe Tribute: 8 Awesome Kobe Bryant Stats You May Not Know

Kobe Bryant will have both of his jerseys (8 and 24) retired tonight at Staples Center, so in honor of the Black Mamba, let's take a look back at EIGHT of his most impressive (but lesser-known) stats he recorded during his historic career. 1. 81 Yep, we know all about the 81-point game-- second-highest scoring performance ever. Blah Blah. Here's what most people don't know: That night, he had 2/3 of his team's scoring output (and 36% of both team's scoring output) and that game pushed his average 1.1 Read More

5 Must-Start Players For NBA DFS Monday– December 18, 2017

1. Kevin Durant, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors Starting with the highest-paid guy, KD is a no-brainer must-start for every DFS team. You have earned as much when you average 34 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, and 3 blocks in a four-game span. Expect that kind of numbers especially with Steph Curry out, but since Draymond Green could be on the shelf as well against the Lakers, the Slim Reaper should go berserk in Kobe's jersey retirement night. 2. Omri Casspi, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors Casspi Read More

NBA MVP Power Rankings – Dec. 14, 2017

1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg) The third overall pick in the 2009 draft continues to impress as his team maintains a one game lead over the Warriors for the #1 seed in the West. He’s one of the most gifted scorers in recent memory, and is a good bet to average over 30 ppg for the season, something only KD and Steph Curry have done in the past 8 years. This year, his stellar play is actually turning into more wins and the Rockets look like a legit threat to the Warriors. Rumors have been Read More

NBA DFS Players to Avoid – Dec. 13, 2017

  Nikola Jokic, C, DEN ($9,800) Jokic is coming off an ankle injury, and should be back tonight against Boston. Normally, I like to see a “show me” game from players returning from injury before I put them in my lineup. His price isn’t affordable enough for me, especially since he’ll need a game to shake off the rust. Also, we saw what Aron Baynes was able to do to Andre Drummond, holding him to single digit points and rebounds. Grab Dwight Howard or DeAndre Jordan at C tonight and spend Read More

NBA DFS Players to Target – Dec. 12, 2017

Kristaps Porzingis, PF, NYK ($9,700) Porzingod was hobbled by an ankle injury in early December, but he’s gotten back on track with 29, 31.8 and 55.6 FP in his last three games. Porzingis scored 30 points (10-23 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 9-10 FT), grabbed eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 38 minutes on Sunday. Although it was the Hawks, Kristaps’ numbers are impressive and tonight he gets a favorable matchup with the Lakers at home. I’d rather have him at his price than Karl-Anthony Read More

Top FanDuel NBA Picks Per Position– Dec. 11, 2017

Point Guards Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers ($9,300) Dame has been a usage monster since Jusuf Nurkic went down and he has not disappointed DFS owners. He has hit at least 40.7 fantasy points in the past seven games with a high of 55.3 FP. Almost the entire offensive load will practically be on his shoulders, so expect Lillard to be at the 28-point, 6-rebound, 7.5-assist and over 4 trey-a-game average he's had in the past four games. Rajon Rondo, New Orleans Pelicans ($5,600) After dropping Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day– Dec. 10, 2017

1. Dwight's Renaissance D12 is averaging 15.5 points and 12.5 rebounds on 55% shooting in just under 30 minutes night. He is on pace to become the 5th player in NBA history to average at least 12 boards in 11 seasons (behind Chamberlain, Russell, Bob Pettit, and Dolph Schayes). 2. Dead-eye Ryan... Ryan Anderson is shooting 77.8% from deep when being assisted by Chris Paul. 3. Guess how many times Russell Westbrook has ball-screened for Melo? *Drum Roll* ZERO! 4. Speaking of Carmelo Read More

5 Must-Start Players In NBA DFS Saturday– Dec. 9, 2017

1. Nicolas Batum, SG/SF, Charlotte Hornets People forget Batum has long been a fantasy stud and he is beginning to show that after missing the early part of the season. Though he doesn't give you excellent percentages, Batum can pass the hell out of the ball, averaging almost six dimes over the last 5 games. He has also averaged almost 12 points and almost six rebounds during that span. The Hornets, are playing on a tail end of  a back-to-back, so there's a chance fatigue will set in. Nevertheless, Read More

NBA DFS Players to Target – Dec. 8, 2017

Andre Drummond, C, DET $9,600 Drummond is on a tear, scoring 56.9, 53.2, 42, and 59 FP in his last four games. He’s got 18 double-doubles in 24 games this season. Even at $9,600 he’s worth it due to the fact he’s got a legit shot to grab 20+ rebounds every night. He’s even chipping in 4 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.6 steals a game. If you drafted him in your season-long leagues then you’re definitely getting a good return on investment. Eric Beldsoe, PG, MIL $7,300 Bledsoe scored 19 points Read More
