3 Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Tuesday– Oct. 29, 2019

Justise Winslow, PG, Miami Heat Winslow has been tearing it up statistically over the past three games, averaging 19 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 6.7 assists over that span. The Heat will be playing a Hawks team in the second night of a back-to-back so this will generally be a favorable matchup for Winslow and the Heat.  The only causes of concern are the return of Dion Waiters and Jimmy Butler but I think JW has proven enough to keep his place as the Heat's starting PG. amzn_assoc_tracking_id = Read More

Who To Play Robert Covington, SF/PF, Timberwolves You may forgotten all about RoCo because hwas down to 35 games last season but now that he's healthy and ready to go, I believe he'll be one the best fantasy players around.

How TO Pull Off The Perfect Fantasy Basketball Draft (Points)

I'll be the very first one to admit that there is no such thing as a perfect draft unless you're competing with six year olds. But relatively speaking, you can pretty much nail a fantasy basketball draft if you come prepared. and has a clear goal in mind.  The league scoring also matters and for this article, let's hypothetically consider how to complete the (near) perfect standard points league draft.  In a points league, the general rule is go for high-efficiency bigs (high FG% ) over high-volume, Read More

5 Players That Are Drafted Too High/Too Low in Yahoo Leagues

1.) Luka Doncic, PG, Dallas Mavericks (Yahoo ADP: 19.6) Doncic is a risk taking at that spot perhaps at least a round too early. Last season, Luka clocked at 71 in the rankings by FantasyPros, and that is despite his otherworldly rookie campaign (21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 6 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.3 3PM).

Moreover, Read More

Morant may not keep up his efficient shooting but he can slice and dice defenses with the best of them. In fact, he has a total of 17 assists in over 38 minutes of preseason playing time and only four total turnovers. That's a ridiculous 4.25 assist to TO ratio according to NBA Stats.  Expecting a complete game from the get-go may not be realistic Read More

5 Unpopular Fantasy basketball Takes Coming Into The season

1.) Russell Westbrook is still top-10 in fantasy basketball. This year's fantasy draft has Brodie as an early Round 2 pick but even with James Harden around, the Rockets offense is designed to accomodate another high-usage player. And it's not like Westbrook has not played with Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Paul George before. Last season was a down year for Westbrook and he still finished in the top 15. Odds are he will not be averaging a triple-double for the fourth straight year but he Read More
