NBA DFS Dec. 29, 2018– Players To Own And Avoid

Who To Own Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards Beal had a 34-7-5-2 line in a loss against the Chicago Bulls and he may have to do more with John Wall on the sideline with a bone bruise issue. In the last two games that Wall is out, Beal is averaging 37 points, nine rebounds, and 10 assists. FanDuel: $8,400 DraftKings: $7,800 Yahoo: $35 John Collins, PF, Atlanta Hawks Collins is a walking double-double, accounting for 10 double-doubles in his last 11 games. If one is that automatic, Read More

NBA DFS Dec. 23, 2018– Players To Own And Avoid

Who To Own Anthony Davis, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans Davis' salary can be crippling but with a nine-game slate, it's easier to find production at a discount. I mean, how can you go wrong on picking someone who dropped over 60 fantasy points after leaving the pre-game warmups to vomit? The Pelicans will be playing Sacramento, another ultra fast-paced team, making this a very fantasy-friendly matchup. Fanduel: $12,500 DraftKings: $11,500 Yahoo: $58 Lou Williams, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers Lou Read More

NBA DFS Dec. 21, 2018– Players To Own And Avoid

Who To Own LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers If you have one big-time player to own on Friday, my money is on LeBron James. The Lakers are losers of three straight and it will be their first time back at home after a four-game road trip so James will be looking to put on a show. He is averaging 26 points, nine rebounds, 7.6 assists, a steal, and 2.2 3PM over the last five games. Scary thing is, we know he's capable of doing more. Marcus Smart, SG, Boston Celtics Smart has been a fantasy Read More

3 Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday– Dec. 17, 2018

Steph Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors Monday night's slate has a plethora of options at the top but my vote of confidence goes to Curry. Aside from that loss to Toronto, Curry has made 12 treys and reached over 60 fantasy points during that those outings. A Curry-Mike Conley matchup should be fun but I expect the two-time MVP to come out on top in style. FanDuel: $9,600 DraftKings: $10,200 Yahoo: $41 Dario Saric, PF, Minnesota Timberwolves Saric has made the most out of his opportunities Read More

Fantasy Implications Of The Trevor Ariza Trade

December 15th is a date of interest for many NBA teams as it marks the day that all free agents who signed with their new teams in the offseason are eligible to be traded. After days of buzz and a botched three-team trade, a swap involving the Phoenix Suns' Trevor Ariza finally pushed through. Ariza was traded to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers. While the betting site SportsLine had the Wizards' playoff chances up 20% because of the trade, we have other agendas Read More

3 Building Blocks For NBA DFS Friday– Dec. 14, 2018

Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets With so many injuries to key players, Denver will be forced to go to Jokic more often on offense. He is averaging  20.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 9.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.2 turnovers over the past 5 games and there really is no reason why he couldn't keep those numbers with Paul Millsap and Gary Harris both on the shelf. FanDuel: $10,100 DraftKings: $9,400 Yahoo: $43 John Collins, PF, Atlanta Hawks Collins is looking like a superstar lately, Read More

Players To Own And Avoid on NBA DFS Wednesday– Dec. 12, 2018

Players To Own: Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards Beal has been on fire lately and has averaged 30 points, 5.3 rebounds, six assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks over the past four games. It does help that John Wall is hurt and could still be riding the shelf this Wednesday, making Beal a must-own in DFS basketball. Julius Randle, PF, New Orleans Pelicans Speaking of hot, Randle has been volcanic in December, as he is good for 25.2 points, 10.8 rebounds,  and 2.8 assists during the Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats of the Day– Dec. 6, 2018

1.) The Spurs defense sucks. San Antonio is ranked 29th in the league on defensive rating, easily the worst in the Gregg Popovich era. 2.) Speaking of the Spurs... They are currently the second-worst team in the West (11-14), only above Phoenix. 3.) Is Nikola Jokic the BEST PASSER (not the best passing big man) in the game? The Serbian big is averaging 7.8 assists a game, good for ninth in the league. However, he is averaging less than 30 minutes of playing time and has assisted on 38.4% Read More

Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS Friday– Dec. 7, 2018

Players To OWN: Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, Miami Heat Olynyk has strung up three good games in a row and with Hassan Whiteside not playing Friday against Phoenix, Olynyk should soak up most of the minutes. He has averaged 14 points, seven rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.3 steals the last three outings with probably the best one coming up against an anemic Suns defense. Darren Collision, PG, Indiana Pacers Most would probably pick Tyreke Evans as the most likely beneficiary of Victor Oladipo's injury, Read More

3 Value Picks For NBA DFS Thursday– Dec. 6, 2018

Dec. 6, 2018, Thursday, only has a three-game slate but in no way should it discourage you to pick your best lineup in a pool of SIX teams. One strategy that I'd like to use is to go mid-heavy, that is, selecting players with middling salaries and go from there. Here are some of the choices that come to mind: Gordon Hayward, SF, Boston Celtics FanDuel: $6,400 DraftKings: $6,100 Yahoo: $23 Finally! Hayward exploded the last time out with 30 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, and Read More
