5 Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Nov. 12, 2019

1.) Harrison Barnes, PF, Sacramento Kings Barnes has been picking up the slack with Marvin Bagley out averaging a cool 19.2 points, five rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.8 steals on 50% shooting (40% from deep) over the last five games. During that span, he scored over 30 fantasy points in each. 2.) Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG/SF, Sacramento Kings Took a while but Bogie is finally starting to get hot. In the past two games, Bogdanovic is registering 21 points, three rebounds, four assists, 1.5 steals, and Read More

5 Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Nov. 10

You may know pretty well about Anthony Davis or LeBron James, or how Damian Lillard scored 60 the last time out. However, the beauty of DFS is finding value among lesser-known players. Here are 5 you can consider for NBA DFS Sunday, Nov. 10: 1.) Fred VanVleet, PG, Toronto Raptors The Raptors are in Los Angeles to visit the red-hot Lakers and while that is must-see TV, the defending champs are two men down going into Sunday's matchup. Kyle Lowry had a thumb injury which will keep him on the shelf Read More

7 Buy Low/Sell High Candidates Early In The Season

1.) Rudy Gobert, C, Utah Jazz (Buy Low) Currently ranked 126th in Yahoo and 66th in the Player Rater, Rudy Gobert is not the top-20 player we projected him to be in a VERY SMALL SAMPLE SIZE. The rebounds are there (12.0) but since he is dependent on one category (blocks) that is basically non-existent for his standards (1.1), the Stifle Tower is relegated to that very low fantasy ranking. Couple that with an unusually high turnover rate (2.9 per game) and that's a recipe for disaster. Which means Read More

5 Must-Plays For NBA DFS Nov. 3, 2019

1.) Dario Saric, PF, Phoenix Suns Saric is a little up-and-down for the Suns but they will draw the Croatian's former team, the Sixers, at home.  I don't know if there's any scientific study out there but these NBA players do hold grudges against their former teams. I won't be surprised if Saric will be a little more motiviated for tomorrow's tiff. 2.) Any of the Sixer trio Joel Embiid is serving the second of a two-game suspension which means Tobias Harris, Al Horford, and Ben Simmons all have Read More

Who To Avoid On NBA DFS Sunday– Nov. 3, 2019

A six-game slate on Sunday provides us with a lot of options but you need to give it a second thought before you decide to tap the services of any of these players. 1.) Luka Doncic, PG, Mavericks Doncic possibly came up with the best game of his career against LeBron James and the Lakers but he did not come out unscathed on that one. While he did register an insane 31-13-15 outing, he needed stitches after he was hit by the head. The Mavs did not rule him out Sunday versus Cleveland (for now) but Read More

5 Waiver Wire Adds To Boost Your Fantasy Team

It pays to be patient in fantasy basketball but if you can manage to squeeze in a transaction or two to bolster your chances, then why not? Here are some of the names you should look at the waiver wire. 1.) Isaiah Thomas, PG, Washington Wizards The Wizards have close to nothing when it comes to guard play allowing Isaiah Thomas to do anything he wants within a 20-minute limite. In the two games since he came back, IT is averaging 16.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 7.5 assists with SIX total threes Read More

3 Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Tuesday– Oct. 29, 2019

Justise Winslow, PG, Miami Heat Winslow has been tearing it up statistically over the past three games, averaging 19 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 6.7 assists over that span. The Heat will be playing a Hawks team in the second night of a back-to-back so this will generally be a favorable matchup for Winslow and the Heat.  The only causes of concern are the return of Dion Waiters and Jimmy Butler but I think JW has proven enough to keep his place as the Heat's starting PG. amzn_assoc_tracking_id = Read More

Who To Play And Who To Avoid For NBA DFS Basketball Wednesday– Oct. 23, 2019

Who To Play Robert Covington, SF/PF, Timberwolves You may forgotten all about RoCo because hwas down to 35 games last season but now that he's healthy and ready to go, I believe he'll be one the best fantasy players around. I mean, how can you not love what we saw in the preaseason? The guy is practically everywhere and in addition to his great defensive stats (2.0 steals and 2.4 blocks per 36 minutes), he was also able to score 14 points, grab under 17 rebounds, and register three dimes per 36 Read More

NBA Finals Game 2: 10 Player Prop Bets

The Toronto Raptors look to take a stranglehold 2-0 series lead against the Golden State Warriors, who will be missing Kevin Durant (again) for Game #2. Interestingly the Warriors are 7-7 in the NBA Finals without Kevin Durant, and are 8-1 with him. Therefore, the Warriors will rely heavily on the Splash Brothers to carry the load on offense as the rest of their lineup doesn't scare anybody - Green, Iguodala, Bell, Looney, Livingston - all usually struggle to create their own shots. Although Read More
