Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS– Nov. 21, 2018

Players To Own LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers LBJ always shows up on big games and I'd count this one as such because it will be the first time he'll return to Cleveland wearing a Lakers uniform. His return to Miami saw him produce a season-high 51 and while I don't expect that scoring output this time around, I also don't think he'll be a disappointment in his return home. Marc Gasol, C, Memphis Grizzlies Gasol has begun to hit his groove the last two games, producing 21.5 points, Read More

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday– Nov. 19, 2018

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday-- Nov. 19, 2018 T.J. Warren, PF, Phoenix Suns Warren is one of the most effortless scorers you will ever see and after a slow start, he's back at it with 21 or more in each of his last 5 games. He doesn't offer much except over 5 rebounds during that same span but as long as he is putting up points, he'll always be an asset in daily fantasy. Jrue Holiday, PG/SG, New Orleans Pelicans Between Paul George and Holiday, the latter is a more viable option Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Friday– Nov. 16, 2018

Al Horford, C, Boston Celtics Horford's numbers are never eye-popping but more so this season. He hasn't had double-digit rebounds since October 20 and his season-high in points is only 19. So why would you pick him up to start for your DFS roster? Because his best fantasy game came against the Raptors on October 19th, where he amassed 14 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists. A matchup against the best of the East may ignite some fire for the veteran. Plus, his modest salary certainly doesn't Read More

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Tuesday– Nov. 13, 2018

Constructing a DFS lineup for a three-game slate is tricky but a simple recipe is to go top-heavy and swing for a couple of punt plays. Here are some value building blocks for NBA DFS Tuesday, November 13, 2018. James Harden, SG, Houston Rockets Is the 40-7-9 line from Nov. 11 a sign of things to come from the reigning MVP? Hopefully, because we certainly haven't seen the jaw-dropping stat lines we are accustomed to seeing from the Beard. Denver has surprisingly among the top defensive teams Read More

Fantasy Winners And Losers In The Jimmy Butler Trade

Jimmy Butler's wish came true as the Minnesota Timberwolves decided to move into a different direction and trade the disgruntled star to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers parted ways with Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, and a future second-round pick to make the deal work. As much as we are in awe right now because of the recent power shift, the fantasy-head in us only care about how the trade affects our fantasy teams going forward. Who are the biggest winners and losers in the Read More

Saturday Recap and 4 picks for Sunday, November 11th

I fell into some foul trouble with Cunningham and Matthews had an off night, that cost me the Quints and GPPs. I was able to cash a couple of 50/50s, I hope you used the 4 pick I gave out and had better luck filling in the rest of your lineup. 4 Picks for Sunday Clint Capela Clint Capela is a double double machine this season. He has 8 double doubles in the 10 games he has played. He could be putting up Embiid like numbers if he could hit his free throw. He is only shooting 54% from Read More

Raptors Hot Start and 4 Players You Need in Your DraftKings Lineup for Saturday, November 10th

  The Raptors Look Unstoppable I was worried about the DeRozan/Kawhi trade when it first happened. I wasn’t concerned about the value, the Raptors won the trade, I was worried about Kawhi wanting to play in Toronto. My worries were laid to rest a few games into the season Kawhi leads the team in PPG with 26, rebounds with 8, steals with 1.8 and he will be a candidate for DPOY. Danny Green came over in the trade as well and he is been great for Toronto whether he is starting or Read More

5 Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Saturday– Nov. 10, 2018

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Saturday: James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets I'm trying to be a contrarian here with the Harden pick and Houston unexpectedly struggling on offense. The Beard still put up elite numbers (26.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.6 steals) but not the jaw-dropping lines we see from him in seasons past. What does that mean? That means he is due for an explosive showing and it could come at the expense of the Spurs, who is 23rd in the league when it comes to Read More

Players To Own And Avoid For NBA DFS Wednesday– Nov. 7, 2018

Players To Own: Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder Russell Westbrook suffered a terrible ankle sprain late in the game against the Pelicans and will likely be a scratch Wednesday versus Cleveland. That would mean PG13 will be called upon to carry more of the load which he is not a stranger of. He may not be scoring much over his last 5 (17 points per game) but all the other numbers (7.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.6 steals, and 1.4 blocks) are superb. Without Westbrook, expect George to look for his Read More

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Tuesday– Nov. 6, 2018

Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF/PF, Milwaukee Bucks Probably the easiest decision that you'll make and the best one as well. Greek Freak has just recorded a triple-double and shows no signs of slowing down. The top choices this Tuesday boil down to Giannis, Damian Lillard, John Wall, and Kemba Walker but Antetokounmpo is fantasy basketball's surest thing right now with averages of 26.1 points, 13.9 rebounds, 5.9 assists, a steal, and 1.4 blocks. If he could just cut down on the 5 turnovers a night, Read More
