Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 16

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 16, Sunday, 10 Games The Studs Russell Westbrook, PG ($12,600) While James Harden has considerably cooled recently, Russell Westbrook showed no signs of slowing down. Another triple-double in the last outing, his sixth in eight games, and a 65.5 FP performance. I'd still take my chances. Anthony Davis, PF ($11,000) He left in the early fourth in the game against Brooklyn but Davis passed a concussion test, prohibiting him from missing any Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 21 (March 16-22)

So this is what it all boil down to: the playoffs. Next week will be the moment of truth in most leagues and after 20 weeks of going through injuries, scanning waiver wires, and orchestrating trades-- this is it. Reaching this far is quite an accomplishment given how crazy the season got with standouts like Kemba Walker, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and others spending more time in the shelf than old bread. Chances are you drafted one of them and you survived with that excellent team management skill Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 12

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice (March 12), Thursday, 5 games: The Studs James Harden, SG ($10,800) There isn't really much to explain here but the real question is, would you roster James Harden on a second night of back-to-back following a relatively "poor" 33.5-fantasy point performance? Absolutely. The Rockets may be travelling from Portland to Salt Lake but I honestly couldn't remember back-to-back nights where Harden had mediocre games (to his standards at least). The last time Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 8

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 8, Sunday, 7 games: The Studs Russell Westbrook, PG ($12,000) A bit pricey but production is like getting two persons in one: 82, 76, 95, 66, the past four. Enough said. Steph Curry, PG ($9,500) Steph Curry, like only a handful of guys, is seemingly immune to stinkers. The NBA's most dynamic shooter has only one 30-fantasy point game in the past 10, and the others were either in the 40's or 50's. Not a bad investment, if you ask me. Victor Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 20 (March 9- March 15)

An alarming rate of NBA stars has regressed noticeably this season. Some are surprising and some are not, having shown signs of slowing down the past couple years. Easier translation: They're getting old. Tony Parker, Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, Paul Pierce, among others, are some that are evidently losing their battle against Father Time. In the case of Parker and Williams, injuries are the main culprit, while Garnett, Dirk and Pierce, they are freaking fossils. Parker's decline Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice (March 6)

Here are some quality options for Friday's 12-game slate: The Studs James Harden, SG ($10,400) Did you really expect me to mention someone else? After serving a one-game suspension because of kicking LeBron James in the groin, the Beard picked up where he left off and dropped an 18-point, 13-assist double-double against Memphis. This Friday, the 2015 MVP frontrunner is facing the sixth-worst team in stopping shooting guards, Detroit Pistons. Draftkings actually cut Harden's salary by $100 Read More

March 4 DFS Lineup Advice

Thirteen games. A baker's dozen NBA outings on March 4th is titillating to a basketball fan's ears, and more so to a daily fantasy basketball junkie. The comings and goings of people and roster situations/rotations make for some interesting line-up choices and one hell of a fantasy basketball day to look forward to. March 4 DFS Lineup Advice: The Studs Chris Paul, PG ($10,200)   CP3 has been on a tear lately on a Clippers team that has sorely been lacking a consistent offensive Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 19 (March 2-March 8)

The unpredictability of the NBA life is what makes it more exciting and to a certain degree, more frightening. As  a fan, I'll take the former any day, with smaller doses of the latter during lethargic stretches. Speaking of EXCITING and FRIGHTENING, you may have heard something about Russell Westbrook and Derrick Rose, that is, in any event you didn't purposely hide your computer and smartphones the past few days. The two All-Star point guards are heading in different directions right now at Read More

The Importance of Team Pace in Fantasy Basketball

I don't hate advanced stats as much as Charles Barkley, nor am I making it my mistress like Daryl Morey. I like to think that I'm a reasonable guy-- a balanced one if you will-- but if you dig fantasy basketball, you have to be more Morey than Barkley. If you think like Sir Chuck in fantasy, you might as well draft up until the third round and leave. On the other hand, if you're Morey, you find specialized value up until the last pick, which can potentially help you out in the long run. As Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice Feb. 25

The news on Derrick Rose going under the knife on the same knee he injured in 2013 was surely a big blow to the Chicago Bulls. The team's official release said an MRI scan revealed a torn meniscus and that no timetable was set in his return. Again. Rose's knee injury will open a lot of opportunities for a couple other Bulls. Joakim Noah, for instance, could see a lot more touches as a facilitator at the center spot. In the 2013-14 season playing without the 2011 MVP, Noah dished a ridiculous 5.4 Read More
