5 Waiver Wire Pickups Heading Into The Second Half Of The Season

Need a boost for your season-long league? Here are 5 players who may still be available and could do just that. 1.) Juancho Hernangomez, SF/PF, Minnesota Timberwolves It must be a little disconcerting being traded from a championship contender to one of the worst teams in the league but if it means more playing time? You don't have to fret too much over that especially if you're still a young guy like Juancho. In the past three contests, Hernangomez played at least 26 minutes and averaged 15 points, Read More

Brandon Ingram, Fred VanVleET, And The ADP All-Stars

Season-long fantasy basketball is a tricky business that combines foresight and sheer luck. The most important key to winning your league is, not on the first two rounds or a midseason stash, but somehow finding someone that vastly outperforms his Average Draft Position (ADP). You do that and you win your league. That's it. Show's over. Now, if you have one or two or three of these players, you definitely are among the top teams in your league. If you don't get lazy and set your lineup night in Read More

Best Basketball Shoes For A Center: These shoes will have you dominating the paint

Being a big man in the game is becoming more and more important especially in today's style of play.

NBA All-Star Weekend 2020 Predictions: Dribbles, Passes, Slam Dunks And Three-Pointers

Based on the headline alone, you can readily see that I'm somewhat biased when it comes to the events I'm going to watch in the NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago this year. I think the Dunk Contest and the Three-Point shootout is when I see a semblance of competition, so I'm not going to miss that for anything. Unless the NBA decides to include a King of the Court competition (or something of that sort) for the Saturday festivities, them slam dunks and three-pointers are going to be the center of Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 11, 2020

There were hits and a miss from the Feb. 10, 2020 suggestions but I guess it's not enough to halt my streak.  From up top, I gave you Nikola Vucevic and Kristaps Porzingis and they did what they had to as pillars for your fake teams. Vucevic had 24-9-9 and a block, and that fact that he did not commit a single turnover maximized his counting stats. KP, on the other hand, had 28 points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal, and two blocks. Malcolm Brogdon was underwhelming this time as he had his Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 10, 2020

I got it rolling the last time I did my best value picks going six for seven in the names I dropped. The seventh, Victor Oladipo, rested so I think I should get a free pass for that. Here's a rundown of what happened Feb. 8th: First name dropped was Nikola Jokic, who was absolutely volcanic in the previous games leading to this one. He cooled off a little bit but was still stellar: 23-9-6 plus a steal and three blocks. The six turnovers did hurt a little bit but he was still good for over 48 FP Read More

BEST VALUE PICKS FOR NBA DFS FEB. 8, 2020

The Studs The real explosive pickup here would be Nikola Jokic who is essentially averaging a triple-double over the last six games. However, the Joker has hit the $10,000 threshold over at DraftKings. At Yahoo, he was at $49, which is reasonable, but you may want to look at other options at DK.  For instance, outside of the blowout win over Houston, DeAndre Ayton has average 23.6 points, 11.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2.2 blocks, and 0.6 steals over the previous five games. As mentioned, he Read More

Fantasy Winners And Losers At The NBA Trade Deadline

The annual crazy exodus otherwise known as the NBA trade deadline has passed and it was one of the busiest in recent memory. At least 25 players changed uniforms and that includes a number of high calibers such as Andre Drummond, D'Angelo Russell, and Andrew Wiggins. Here are the fantasy winners and losers at the NBA trade deadline: Winners Christian Wood, PF/C, Detroit Pistons The ultra-talented big man just saw his value skyrocket when the Pistons decided to get rid of Andre Drummond and ship Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 5, 2020

From top to bottom, here is a brief recap of my best value picks for Feb. 4: For the first time in a long time, Damian Lillard looked human. He finished with 21-2-9 plus a steal. He didn't have single TO in the blowout loss so that helped his value a little. Zion Williamson is still figuring everything out in his seventh game but he is an automatic 30+ FP player already. He had 20-7-4 plus a steal against the Bucks but if he just relaxed a little bit and lowered the TOs, it would have been better. Terry Read More
