Bargain-hunting will be extra hard in the playoffs but there are some really solid bargain options in a two-game playoff Monday. Let's consider five Best Bargain Options For NBA Playoffs DFS-- April 15, 2019:
1.) Boban Marjanovic, C, Philadelphia 76ers
Joel Embiid played a little less than 25 minutes in Game 1 and still was pretty dominant. However, if his playing time is any indication, he is not 100% and is considered questionable going into Game 2.
Whatever the case, this will open up Read More
It's the last game of the NBA regular season and it's a little tricky picking up players for your DFS squad because teams are resting key players left and right. However, we still have lots of options especially the super rookies.
Trae Young, PG, Atlanta Hawks
Young is not on the injury report against the Pacers and there is a big chance he'll suit up for the final game of the season. Ice Trae has made the Rookie of the Year race a bit more interesting down the stretch, averaging Read More
1. Dwyane Wade and the art of the pump fake.
Wade and pump fakes are pretty much synonymous but how good is he exactly with these weapons? Someone did the math, and they have the stats:
“Around 1,350 players, give or take, have played at least a single minute against the Miami HEAT since Wade was drafted in 2003. And he got 339 of them to jump.”
“Which means Wade got 25% of all the players he ever played against to bite.”
John Salmons was the worst offender (9 times), followed Read More
Mario Hezonja, SF, New York Knicks
I honestly don't know if Mario is SUPER until some three games ago. He has three-game averages of 25 points, 10.3 rebounds, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.7 steals. Hezonja is getting all the run he can handle at that span, playing at least 34 minutes each.
Jamal Crawford, PG, Phoenix Suns
It's either the Suns want JC on a team by the start of next season or they are just flat-out undermanned. Whatever the case, Crawford has been delivering the goods lately averaging Read More
Alex Caruso, SG, Los Angeles Lakers
Caruso finally got his chance and with his confidence at an all-time high, he turned a career-best performance against the Clippers: 32 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. He was the only Laker in the past few years outside of Kobe and LeBron to record such.
The Lakers will be up against the Jazz but Caruso's potential to play upwards of 30 minutes is too tantalizing to pass up.
Enes Kanter, C, Portland Trail Blazers
Kanter is averaging a double-double Read More
It's time to go bargain-hunting again on a 12-game Wednesday.
Richaun Holmes, C, Phoenix Suns
Without DeAndre Ayton possible for the rest of the season, Holmes will get some significant playing time from here on out. He had a nice double-double in a win over Cleveland and played 24 minutes. If he can somehow control his penchant for fouling, we can see another big night from Holmes.
Another option in a Suns uniform would be Dragan Bender, who is actually playing more minutes than Holmes Read More
Sterling Brown, SG, Milwaukee Bucks
With the Bucks firmly holding the best record in the NBA, Milwaukee is looking to rest key guys and play some of their younger ones. With Giannis, Khris Middleton, and Eric Bledsoe all out for load management, Sterling Brown came through with a career-game-- 27 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and three steals against Atlanta. The Bucks are on the second night of a back-to-back in Brooklyn but Brown has got young legs, so I don't see that as a problem.
Shaquille Read More
Time to go bargain-hunting again on a Friday night, starting with Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon.
Dewayne Dedmon, C, Atlanta Hawks
Dedmon combines the rare skill of creating space as a shooting center with the willingness to bang with anyone inside. He is averaging 17.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, and a steal over the past three games, all Hawks wins. He has drilled SEVEN treys during that span on 12 attempts.
Dwayne Bacon, SG, Charlotte Hornets
With Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lamb unavailable, Read More
