Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 30, 2020

There were some big hits and big misses in my yesterday's picks and let me begin by saying Buddy Hield, Nemanja Bjelica, and Kris Dunn were horrible. The Kings were blown out of the water so understandably, their main guns sat out with the game already decided. I haven't watch the Bulls-Pacers game but the overtime should have helped Dunn's cause. Instead, he was down to 16 minutes of playing time. The strong play of several Bulls including Chandler Hutchison (21 points) and Cristiano Felicio (11 Read More

Kobe Bryant’s Body Of Work In Fantasy Basketball and Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 29, 2020

We basketball fans will always remember Kobe Bryant and if you have played fantasy basketball long enough, you probably remember Mamba's body of work in his best fantasy seasons. First of all, the 81-point game. Kobe's final line was 81, plus  6 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, 7 3pts made. That would have been the most points scored in DFS basketball in the modern era (103 points in DraftKings and 100.2 in Yahoo). Only Wilt's 100, Jordan's 69 and Hakeem's 38-17-12 triple double are above Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 28, 2020

Mostly all of my picks on 27th did really well and even though both Rudy Gobert (12 points, 14 rebounds, one steal, and two blocks) and Nikola Vucevic (13 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, a steal, and a block) are essentially below average (at least to my liking), all of the other picks were on-point: Oh, my! Spida Mitchell! DM had over 50 FP for the second time in six games and to think I had him as my pick because he is worth only under $8,000, I struck gold. Kris Dunn and Larry Nance Jr. were Read More

It's a sad day for the NBA right now with the passing of the legendary Kobe Bryant. As someone who has followed the guy's career-- the peaks, the valleys, and everything in between-- there are no words to describe what happened. It's just tragic. Anyway, as Kawhi Leonard puts it, he would have wanted everyone to still ball and be great at it, so let's go right on and play. Jan. 25 recap: I was definitely, definitely wrong about Ben Simmons in the Sixers matchup with the Lakers. I failed to recognize Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 25, 2020

Here's a recap of my picks for Friday, Jan. 24th: Oh yeah, D'Angelo Russell. D'Lo kept it going with his 7th 40-plus FP night in nine games! My other pick in the STUDS department is John Collins, who was solid (28 points, six rebounds, one steal) but I should've went with DeMar DeRozan, who had 30-8-4 for the night. Zion Williamson (15 points, six rebounds, a steal, and a block) and Nemanja Bjelica (13 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block) both did their part here and I can't Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 24, 2020

I was out of town for a few days so I wasn't able to publish my DFS picks but I'm back and ready to go.  Jan. 20 recap: My dream team of Ja Morant and Rudy Gobert delivered, but not to the point I was expecting. I thought Ja will excel against Pelicans's high-octane offense but nah. He finished with 16 points, three rebounds, nine assists, and a steal but nothing special. Gobert had 20 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, and a block, his fourth 20-point double-double in four of the past five up Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 20, 2020

Last time I was able to publish my picks was for Jan. 17 with mixed results (mostly great).  Ja Morant and DeMar Derozan were really superb statistically with the latter racking up 25-9-9 plus two steals. Morant held his own in the win, finishing with 16 points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and a block.  If you have gone for Jaren Jackson, Jr., this where the mixed results thing starts. While Kevin Huerter (18 points, two rebounds, an assists, a steal, and two blocks) and Al Horford Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Friday– Jan. 17, 2020

Thurday's picks were a rousing success so I've got to roll at least one more time: The Jazz lost to New Orleans, no thanks to Brandon Ingram's career-high 49 points, but Rudy Gobert is still on that unbelievable streak. That's now five straight double-doubles for the Stifle Tower (17 points, 14 rebounds) but the four assists and three blocks made all the difference. As predicted, Kemba Walker was a little more aggressive than he was the past few games and racked up 40 points and 11 rebounds plus Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Thursday Jan. 16, 2020

Let's do best value picks once again since the last time I did it, it was raining fantasy points all over. Here's a short recap: I recommended Devin Booker and Rudy Gobert and boy, were they nuclear. Booker stuffed the stat sheet (39 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals) and Gobert dominated the glass while scoring over 20 for consecutive games (22 points, 18 rebounds, four assists, one steal, and two blocks). Eric Bledsoe was below average by his standards but he only played 21 minutes Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Tuesday– Jan. 14, 2020

Just a little recap for Jan. 13:  I have suggested a number of Pelicans for Monday with three starters missing, but the situation was actually worse. Brandon Ingram also sat out freeing up minutes here and there. But back to my picks: Josh Hart and Nicollo Melli were all more than solid especially Melli, who finished with 20 points, three rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Hart was not bad (11-6-2 with a block) but the biggest fantasy asset for New Orleans was Jahlil Okafor (25 and 14 with Read More
