Best Value Picks For NBA Playoffs DFS Tuesday– Apr. 23, 2019

There will be four games Tuesday night so that will give us a lot of options for the best value picks but I especially would like to target teams whose backs are against the wall. Facing elimination, they will probably leave it all they have, making them great options for DFS Tuesday. The Studs Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports It will either be Russ or PG but I don't recommend both because you may be forced to water down the rest of the roster.

Monday night features only two games but there will never be a shortage for bargains if you know where to look. 1.) P.J. Tucker, PF, Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Tucker comes up big in Game 3 and has some solid averages this series (13 points, six rebounds, two assists, and 1.3 steals. He is a big part of the Rockets' offense and defense and will continue to see upwards of 30 minutes every single night. 2.) Luke Kennard, SF, Detroit Pistons Tim Fuller, USA Today I Read More

Eric Gordon and the Best Bargains For NBA DFS Wednesday– Apr. 17, 2019

1.) Eric Gordon, SG, Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The Jazz are on the bind when it comes to their defensive game plan against James Harden. They tried to take away his step back but the Beard still had his way against the Utah defense all game along. That said, other Rockets were beneficiaries of Harden's stellar play. Eric Gordon, for one, found himself wide open too many times, resulting in three made treys en route to 17 points, three rebounds, an assist, and two blocks. If Read More

Best Bargain Options For NBA Playoffs DFS– April 16, 2019

It's a three-game Tuesday so we're going bargain-hunting again. Here are 5 of the best bargain options for April 16, 2019: 1.) Danny Green, SG, Toronto Raptors Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports The Raptors could not afford to lose this one so they are going to go all-out and perhaps shorten their rotation. Green played 33 minutes in Game 1 and had 13 points and three rebounds but he will have to do more than that to secure a win. As a grizzled playoff vet, I don't have any doubts that Read More

1.) Boban Marjanovic, C, Philadelphia 76ers

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Wednesday– April 10, 2019

It's the last game of the NBA regular season and it's a little tricky picking up players for your DFS squad because teams are resting key players left and right. However, we still have lots of options especially the super rookies.
The Studs
Trae Young, PG, Atlanta Hawks

Young is not on the injury report against the Pacers and there is a big chance he'll suit up for the final game of the season. Ice Trae has made the Rookie of the Year race a bit more interesting down the stretch, averaging Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats of the Day

1. Dwyane Wade and the art of the pump fake.

Wade and pump fakes are pretty much synonymous but how good is he exactly with these weapons? Someone did the math, and they have the stats:

“Around 1,350 players, give or take, have played at least a single minute against the Miami HEAT since Wade was drafted in 2003. And he got 339 of them to jump.”
“Which means Wade got 25% of all the players he ever played against to bite.”

John Salmons was the worst offender (9 times), followed Read More

Mario Hezonja and the Best Bargains for NBA DFS Tuesday– Apr. 9, 2019

Mario Hezonja, SF, New York Knicks

I honestly don't know if Mario is SUPER until some three games ago. He has three-game averages of 25 points, 10.3 rebounds, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.7 steals. Hezonja is getting all the run he can handle at that span, playing at least 34 minutes each.
Jamal Crawford, PG, Phoenix Suns

It's either the Suns want JC on a team by the start of next season or they are just flat-out undermanned. Whatever the case, Crawford has been delivering the goods lately averaging Read More

Alex Caruso and the Best Bargains For NBA DFS Sunday– April 7, 2019

Alex Caruso, SG, Los Angeles Lakers

Caruso finally got his chance and with his confidence at an all-time high, he turned a career-best performance against the Clippers: 32 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. He was the only Laker in the past few years outside of Kobe and LeBron to record such.

The Lakers will be up against the Jazz but Caruso's potential to play upwards of 30 minutes is too tantalizing to pass up.
Enes Kanter, C, Portland Trail Blazers

Kanter is averaging a double-double Read More
