NBA DFS Best Value Picks– October 18, 2017

The Studs Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks ($10,300) The "Greek Freak" is in the conversation of being the best basketball fantasy player right now, so why not? Plus, the Bucks are going to catch Boston on the second night of a back to back. Needless to say, things are going to be looking real good for owners who'll spend big money on Giannis. Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Pistons ($7,600) For some reason, nobody is talking big about Andre Drummond in fantasy circles. His ADP Read More

NBA Fantasy Basketball: 5 Late-Round Fliers To Keep An Eye On

1. Ersan Ilyasova, PF, Atlanta Hawks I can probably include a couple of Hawks here but let me start with the Turkish veteran. Atlanta is in full tanking mode and aside from Dennis Schroder (and to a lesser extent, Kent Bazemore), someone has to score for this team. Ilyasova averaged almost 15 points in 53 games for the Sixers last season while contributing almost six rebounds and two assists. Ilyasova is also hitting over 1 trey a game over the course of his career and the combined 1.1 steals+blocks Read More

NBA Fantasy Basketball: 5 Players That Are Trending Upwards

1. Patrick Beverley, PG, Los Angeles Clippers Patrick Beverley won't be in the top tier of point guards anytime soon but fantasy-wise, he could be a big help on anybody's roster this upcoming season. The 1st team All-Defense member is a solid playmaker, a hard-nosed defender, and a respectable enough shooter to warrant a spot as the third PG in your fantasy roster. He's now out of James Harden's shadow and playing alongside Milos Teodosic should allow PatBev to feature his scoring more. According Read More

Fantasy Outlook Of 6 NBA Stars Changing Addresses

The 2017-18 offseason is one of the craziest and wildest offseasons in recent memory. As of September 26, at least SIX All-Stars have changed addresses including Chris Paul, Kyrie Irving, Paul George, and just recently, Carmelo Anthony. Irving was a top-20 fantasy basketball player last year as well as George, while Melo is still a highly serviceable scorer who could be in danger of being criminally underrated inside fantasy circles. CP3 is joining 2017 MVP runner-up James Harden in Houston and Read More

Top Rookies Of Fantasy Basketball For 2017-18

These are basically predictions so it should be taken with a grain of salt. However, it is obvious that some teams can offer rookies the opportunity right off the bat. (Hello, Atlanta and Brooklyn!) Jayson Tatum, for example, averaged 18.2 points and 8.8 rebounds in 5 Summer League games en route to a slot in the All-Summer League second team. But could he even crack the 20-minute mark with Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart in front of him in the rotation? Time can only answer the Read More

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Bargains To Look At This Sunday (April 30, 2017)

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Bargains To Look At This Sunday (April 30, 2017) 1. Austin Rivers, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers ($4,000) It sure pays when the coach is your Dad. Kidding aside though, Rivers is the best option the Clippers have right now at SG because at least he goes after people and JJ Redick and Jamal Crawford are useless when they're not hitting shots. Rivers played 35 minutes in just the second game since his injury and could see plenty of run in a winner-take-all Game 7. 2. Joe Read More

NBA Playoffs Stats Of The Day– April 26, 2017

It's Russell Westbrook's last game for the 2016-17 season so this will be a tribute of some sorts to the future MVP. NBA Playoffs Stats Of The Day-- April 26, 2017 1. That's why you don't take Beastbrook out of the game... Russell Westbrook was off the floor for 6 minutes in Game 5. In those 6 minutes, the Rockets outscored the Thunder 27-9. pic.twitter.com/AicL24JgEd — ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) April 26, 2017 2. ... although he had his share of struggles in Game 4.

NBA Playoffs DFS: 3 Players To Build Around On Sunday (April 23, 2017)

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Build Around On Sunday (April 23, 2017) Chris Paul, PG, Los Angeles Clippers ($9,800) No brainer. Blake Griffin is out for the rest of the playoffs so the burden falls squarely on the shoulders of Chris Paul. It's not like we could ask more from CP3. He has not scored less than 47 fantasy points in the first three games and with BG gone, that production could go LeBron-esque at over $2,000 less. DeAndre Jordan, C, Los Angeles Clippers ($7,900) Again, with Read More

NBA Playoffs Stats Of The Day– April 22, 2017

NBA Playoffs Stats Of The Day-- April 22, 2017 1. Rajon Rondo is awesome and if he doesn't come back, this series will be over... fast... Bulls finish with 14 assists---or the same number Rondo had in Game 2. — K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) April 22, 2017 2. More Rondo awesomeness... Rajon Rondo had rebounded more Bulls' misses in this series (7) than C's bigs Amir Johnson, Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Zeller combined (6). — Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) April 21, 2017 3. And the soon-to-be Read More

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Avoid On Thursday, April 20, 2017

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Avoid On Thursday DeMar DeRozan, SG, Toronto Raptors ($8,000) Everything is exposed in the playoffs and unless DeMar DeRozan finds ways to expand his range or create for others, I don't think the high-scoring guard is a wise investment at $8,000. His rebounding numbers may even be just a fluke. At this point, teammate Kyle Lowry may be a better option (though at a slightly higher price) having seen his last performance. However, if you want the bang for your Read More
