Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 27, 2020

It's a sad day for the NBA right now with the passing of the legendary Kobe Bryant. As someone who has followed the guy's career-- the peaks, the valleys, and everything in between-- there are no words to describe what happened. It's just tragic. Anyway, as Kawhi Leonard puts it, he would have wanted everyone to still ball and be great at it, so let's go right on and play. Jan. 25 recap: I was definitely, definitely wrong about Ben Simmons in the Sixers matchup with the Lakers. I failed to recognize Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 25, 2020

Here's a recap of my picks for Friday, Jan. 24th: Oh yeah, D'Angelo Russell. D'Lo kept it going with his 7th 40-plus FP night in nine games! My other pick in the STUDS department is John Collins, who was solid (28 points, six rebounds, one steal) but I should've went with DeMar DeRozan, who had 30-8-4 for the night. Zion Williamson (15 points, six rebounds, a steal, and a block) and Nemanja Bjelica (13 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block) both did their part here and I can't Read More

I was out of town for a few days so I wasn't able to publish my DFS picks but I'm back and ready to go.  Jan. 20 recap: My dream team of Ja Morant and Rudy Gobert delivered, but not to the point I was expecting. I thought Ja will excel against Pelicans's high-octane offense but nah. He finished with 16 points, three rebounds, nine assists, and a steal but nothing special. Gobert had 20 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, and a block, his fourth 20-point double-double in four of the past five up Read More

Last time I was able to publish my picks was for Jan. 17 with mixed results (mostly great).  Ja Morant and DeMar Derozan were really superb statistically with the latter racking up 25-9-9 plus two steals. Morant held his own in the win, finishing with 16 points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and a block.  If you have gone for Jaren Jackson, Jr., this where the mixed results thing starts. While Kevin Huerter (18 points, two rebounds, an assists, a steal, and two blocks) and Al Horford Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Tuesday– Jan. 14, 2020

Just a little recap for Jan. 13:  I have suggested a number of Pelicans for Monday with three starters missing, but the situation was actually worse. Brandon Ingram also sat out freeing up minutes here and there. But back to my picks: Josh Hart and Nicollo Melli were all more than solid especially Melli, who finished with 20 points, three rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Hart was not bad (11-6-2 with a block) but the biggest fantasy asset for New Orleans was Jahlil Okafor (25 and 14 with Read More

5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Jan. 13, 2020

My suggestions for Jan. 11, 2020 were generally on point except for Jerami Grant, including a wild swing on Cedi Osman. Osman had some serious workload for three straight games but the production were pretty much pedestrian. That is until Saturday, where the Turkish swing man pulled down a season-high 12 boards, along with 11 points and four assists in 35 minutes of action. A couple of Pelicans did their jobs, especially Jaxson Hayes (20 points, two rebounds, two blocks). Josh Hart (seven points, Read More

The last 5 suggestions (for Jan. 10th) did not go as well as I would have hoped.  Pop brought misery by playing Lonnie Walker IV only 15 minutes while doing basically nothing. Dewayne Dedmon, who I have high hopes for, got into foul trouble early and disappeared in 14 minutes of play. Because of the mini-blowout, JJ Redick played 23 minutes (12 points, two rebounds, two assists) which is a bit mediocre, while JaVale McGee and (nine points, three rebounds, two steals, and a block) and Bobby Portis Read More

5 Bargain Options For NBA DFS Jan. 10, 2020

Friday has 10 games for us which means bargains are aplenty. But before we splurge, let's review for a moment what happened with my last bargain suggestions: Omari Spellman was OK but not great: 11 points, five rebounds, an assist, and a block in 17 minutes. Three to five more minutes of playing time and the guy could easily have 25, which is a borderline great number for his salary.  Enes Kanter literally fizzled and has not gotten over 23 FP in the last three games, Jan. 8th was his worst outing Read More

5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Jan. 8, 2020

Here's a recap for the Jan. 7 picks:  I started out by striking out because Dante Exum did not play overall, it was a pretty decent batch of bargain options. Naz Reid was OK in only 10 minutes of playing time (10 points, five rebounds, 1 assist) but a a block or a steal here or there would have pushed his total to about 20 FP. Svi Mykhailiuk and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson each had over 20 FP with Svi with 23 FP which were also fine given their salaries.  Here are another batch of five in Wednesday's Read More

Jan. 6, 2020 recap: OK, Jingles gave me 39 FP so I'm pretty happy with the result along with JJ Redick's 27 FP on a near-minimum salary. As I have suggested, it would be best if you spend top dollar on Monday night's crop of point guards especially Luka Doncic and/or Lonzo Ball and both kept it rolling against their respective opponents. Doncic has recorded his 10th 30-point triple-double, the most by a 20-year old in NBA history while Ball had 21 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists for around Read More
