Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice (Feb. 23)

February 23 features eight games for the ongoing 2015 NBA season and you know what that means for fantasy junkies: Wriggle room to play and play some more! Many daily fantasy basketball players favor DraftKings over any other DFS sites because of the ease of use and overall gameplay so this will be all references to the said site. Let us get this straight: This is only a daily fantasy basketball lineup advice column and we can only do so much for you. As you might already know, the KEY in winning Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 18 (Feb. 23- March 1)

If you're a Reggie Jackson owner (or the crafty one that immediately snagged him minutes after the trade deadline), what's not to love? If D.J. Augustin managed to come up with numbers good enough to be the seventh-best point guard in fantasy basketball as a starter for the Detroit Pistons, the Boston College product can possibly do a lot more. The best case scenario would be matching Augustin's numbers in the past 30 days: 18.1 points, 7.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and almost two treys in only under Read More

NBA Trade Deadline Fantasy Impact: Making Sense of the Dizzying Deadline Deals

It started slow and ended anything but. If anyone was asked to describe the 2015 NBA trade deadline in seven words, that would be the most fitting description. Thirty-eight players were involved, not to mention a slew of draft picks, and maybe a few broken smartphones from the incessant calls along the way. For some teams, if there ever were broken phones, it's all part of the occupational hazard. For others, not so much. And that could apply for players, too, and us as fantasy basketball loyalists.

2015 NBA Trade Deadline: Players Who Could Be On The Move

It's that time of the year again and the 2015 NBA trade deadline should provide us more news to delve into for the upcoming days. Because all the rosters will have locked after Thursday, all teams will have their own agendas and goals and should determine how they treat the deadline. For some, it'll be a chance to strengthen themselves going into the postseason by acquiring a veteran. The others use the NBA trade deadline as a pressure release, from the tax impunity, that is. OR it could be a good Read More

How To Win Daily Fantasy Basketball H2H Leagues?

If you want to be a fantasy basketball rockstar, you have to pay your dues. Nobody can be naturally good at something so that means you have to work hard for it. Even if some are born smart, they still have to use that brain of theirs to be good at something. So what's the point? Because you do want to earn money easy (I presumed that's why you're here in the first place), you have to spend time on it. Once you've figured out the initial flurry, you'll be able to handle everything well. In Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 16-17 (Feb. 9-22)

If you own Blake Griffin, you're in trouble right now. His 22.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists will be sorely missed at this crucial time, especially with the Clips trying to hold down the 5th spot in a murderous Western Conference. Griffin underwent successful surgery for a staph infection on his right elbow but he is expected to be out for more than a month. The Clippers will likely be hanging on for dear life during that time and Griffin's missed time on the court is the very reason why. Read More

Predicting the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend Winners

The greatest basketball weekend on Earth is only days away and it's only fair to get so amped up about it. The traditional Rookies vs Sophomores is replaced by a USA vs the World format while the other events went pretty much back to the original setups. Personally, I don't enjoy watching All-Star games because it's just a glorified shootaround. A lot of dunking, open layups, open jumpers... there's nothing much to it. You can basically get the whole idea in the highlight films tomorrow and your Read More

How To Win 50-50 Leagues in Daily Fantasy Basketball?

The last time out, we convinced you to switch to playing Daily Fantasy Basketball (at least not entirely). We give you a bunch of reasons but the one that should resonate the most is CASH. Real, cold, hard cash. But the thing is, these tournaments are highly uncertain. How do you expect to consistently win a tournament of a thousand players, most of them among the world's best? Unless you're freaking Nostradamus, there's absolutely no way to do that. (And I highly doubt Mr. Nostra can do a better Read More

Why Should You Switch To Playing NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball?

The first time I get to play fantasy basketball was around the early 2000's and boy was I pumped up! I get to be a General Manager for a year and competing against fellow basketball fanatics is always a joy. But then again, it gets old. Quickly. Yes, I still do draft my teams annually (no auto-picks for me) and set my line-up day in and day out, but it bores the hell out of me knowing most of my colleagues does not share the same passion as I have in going about those things. They stop tinkering Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 15 (Feb. 2- Feb.8)

The All-Star reserves were announced this past week and as expected, there were some pleasant surprises and robberies along the way. Golden State Warriors' Klay Thompson, Atlanta Hawks' Jeff Teague, and Chicago Bulls' do-it-all swingman Jimmy Butler made it to their first All-Star teams. Thompson is widely regarded as one of the league's top two-way players while Teague and Butler are the motors that keep their respective teams' engines running. Along with Teague, two other Hawks lead the East's Read More
