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 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 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

NBA Playoffs DFS Best Value Picks– April 17, 2017

A two-game slate is usually very tricky but since it's the playoffs, you'll surely have options to round out your NBA playoffs DFS roster. Here are 6 NBA Playoffs DFS Best Value Picks that you may want to look at this Monday night: The Studs LeBron James, SF, Cleveland Cavaliers ($11,300) "The King" does not rest during this time of the year and since it's just a two-game slate, the pickings are slim. So why not pick the best of them all while we're at it? LeBron had 32-6-13 in Game 1 along Read More

NBA Playoffs DFS: Players To Avoid On Sunday– April 15, 2017

The first day of the 2017 NBA playoffs is upon us and that means another day of NBA daily fantasy basketball. NBA Playoffs DFS: Players To Avoid On Sunday-- April 15, 2017 Kyle Lowry, PG, Toronto Raptors ($8,200) vs Bucks Lowry has missed over a month because of a wrist injury and has recently joined the team in four games from April 5-12. That means he has his work cut out for him and nobody knows how his wrist will react. Moreover, the Bucks have a slew of long-limbed defenders (Tony Snell, Read More

5 DFS Performances That Came Out Of Nowhere– March 29, 2017

1. Cory Joseph, PG, Raptors (42 .75 points) Joseph should be up there as far as stats are concerned with Kyle Lowry out for an extended period of time. That's not the case, however, at least not until tonight. Somebody should have seen it coming but not me: CoJo had a full stat line against the Hornets defense, scoring 18 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks, and two treys. He did have 13 assists the other time around against the Magic but I thought it was a fluke. I should Read More

5 Players To Avoid In NBA DFS– March 29, 2017

5 Players To Avoid In NBA DFS-- March 29, 2017 1. DeMarcus Cousins, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans ($9,600) vs Mavericks Both DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis average over 50 fantasy points in the past 10 days. Boogie, however, is dealing with every issue known to a basketball player, namely foul trouble and a sprained ankle. He is doubtful on Wednesday's tiff vs Dallas so unless you can make sure just before tip-off if the Pels will give Cousins a go, that salary should go to someone else. 2. Read More

NBA DFS Best Value Picks– March 24, 2017

NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- March 24, 2017 The Studs John Wall, PG, Washington Wizards ($9,600) The Wizards figure in a tight race for the 2nd seed in the East so there's no worry about John Wall not playing. Actually, the Nets are playing pretty good ball lately, too. But they have trouble stopping point guards all year and they are facing maybe the best in the conference. Easy 40-pointer J-Wall. Dwight Howard, C, Atlanta Hawks ($7,300) With Paul Millsap out, Howard is leaned upon more in Read More

NBA DFS Best Value Picks– March 19, 2017

NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- March 19, 2017 The Studs DeMar Derozan, SG, Toronto Raptors ($7,700) DeMar Derozan has a pretty mediocre stat line the past six games averaging "only" 34.5 points. He is still the focal point of the Raptors offense. though, and against a less-than-impressive Pacers defense, Derozan could break out and hit the 50's once again. Goran Dragic, PG, Miami Heat ($7,600) The Dragon has hit the high 40's in three of the past four and draws another favorable matchup against Read More

NBA Fantasy Basketball Performers Of The Night– March 18, 2017

From James Harden to Denzel Valentine, here are the top fantasy basketball performers from March 18, 2017: The Studs 1. James Harden, PG, Houston Rockets My vote for MVP goes to this guy although I don't believe the Rockets could make it any farther than Round 2, The Beard came up with a masterpiece yet again: 40 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, and three triples. That's his second consecutive 40-point triple-doubles although it came with eight turnovers. But you have to take the Read More
