2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: Nikola Jokic’ 5 Best Stat Lines Of The Season

Owning Nikola Jokic in fantasy basketball is not for the faint of heart nor for the impatient. Joker is known in fantasy circles to be an ultra-slow starter, probably rounding up into form around December.  While he only averages around 45 fantasy points per game (that's 15th in the entire league), he has not missed a game yet all season. That's the reason why he has a total of 2,815 fantasy points, which would have ranked third behind James Harden and Trae Young.  Jokic' iron man status Read More

2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: Anthony Davis’ 5 Best Stat Lines Of The Season

If there's doubt about Anthony Davis' fit next to LeBron James, all of that has been erased. AD has been a force to be reckoned with like he always has been. His 26.7 PPG is second-highest of his career, while supplying 9.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.4 blocks. Sure, the rebounding average is his lowest since his rookie year but AD made up for that by making 1.2 threes per game and a career-high 84% clip from the line on over eight attempts. In the most popular fantasy platforms and Read More

2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 5 Best Stat Lines Of The Season

The Milwaukee Bucks is comfortably sitting atop the NBA for pretty much 85% of the season until the suspension. If you have to name one reason for their resurgence, no doubt it would Giannis Antetokonmpo. Known as the Greek Freak, Antetokounmpo is the reigning MVP and is probably on his way to bag a second straight Maurice Podoloff Trophy. However, while there may be no denying that Giannis is the best player of the NBA's best team, is he also the Number 1 in fantasy basketball? Well, for discussion's Read More

2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: James Harden’s 5 Best Stat Lines Of the Season

James Harden has been the best, if not the best, fantasy basketball player over the last five years but does he still sit atop the fantasy basketball world this season? For roto-based leagues, he might still be. ESPN's rankings on category-based leagues (roto and H2H categories) all have the Beard as No. 1. He was No. 6 on points rankings but there's no denying the statistical impact he still has, despite playing with a high-usage guy next to him.  Like LeBron James, Harden's longevity in fantasy Read More

What We Should Know After NBA Suspends Season Due To COVID-19

It sucks but the NBA made the right call. Adam Silver announced Wednesday night that the league will suspend games until further notice, at least until it has determined the next steps to combat COVID-19. Two players, namely Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, were tested positive for the virus. Both play for the Utah Jazz. Gobert has tested positive on Wednesday night while Mitchell confirmed that he has contracted the virus on Thursday, on his Instagram page. https://www.instagram.com/p/B9pEkQOAOB0/ Here Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS March 11, 2020

I hope you did your diligence last March 9 and checked the availability of your guys. Turns out the Bucks gave this game away by sitting out four of their five starters and one of their most dynamic players coming off that bench, including three in my suggestions. That said, all of the picks I gave other than the grounded Bucks did absolutely well. Outside of Eric Bledsoe, I did suggest the starting Hornets backcourt and they were awesome, helped by a double-overtime game and playing another team Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS March 9, 2020

It was a nice 11-game Sunday and as a basketball fan, that's all you can ask for. I did offer my thoughts on the early schedule, and I was pretty much on point except with Kawhi Leonard. Leonard had 27 points but only two rebounds and an assist. That's not going to cut it if he is your number one guy. If you had Jrue Holiday, then that's the game-changer as he finished with 37-9-8 plus a steal and a block. Now to the rest of the games, again everyone was pretty solid except if you followed through Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS March 8, 2020

It was two days ago where I last had the BEST VALUE PICKS and I pretty much got everything right except for De'Andre Hunter's pedestrian performance. However, his fantasy points that night where just on his average so I should not complain much. Suggested Aaron Gordon and even though he had 15-10-4 plus extras, it could have easily been around 45 FP if not for the blowout. Bam Adebayo had a single-digit points output but made up for it by stuffing the stat sheet. The first-time All-Star had 12 Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS March 6, 2020

The last time I did a value picks article, I broke my streak of consecutive flame-outs at the stud department. (Bradley Beal and Lonzo Ball both went off for around 50 FP.) Bad news is, my prediction on Steven Adams and Montrezl Harrell were off with both guys churning out subpar performances against each other. It was so bad I'm not inclined to show their stats from March 3rd. Damion Lee somehow managed to disappoint me but Harry Giles III was pretty solid-- going for 13 points and six rebounds Read More
