Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice (Feb. 23)

February 23 features eight games for the ongoing 2015 NBA season and you know what that means for fantasy junkies: Wriggle room to play and play some more! Many daily fantasy basketball players favor DraftKings over any other DFS sites because of the ease of use and overall gameplay so this will be all references to the said site. Let us get this straight: This is only a daily fantasy basketball lineup advice column and we can only do so much for you. As you might already know, the KEY in winning Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 18 (Feb. 23- March 1)

If you're a Reggie Jackson owner (or the crafty one that immediately snagged him minutes after the trade deadline), what's not to love? If D.J. Augustin managed to come up with numbers good enough to be the seventh-best point guard in fantasy basketball as a starter for the Detroit Pistons, the Boston College product can possibly do a lot more. The best case scenario would be matching Augustin's numbers in the past 30 days: 18.1 points, 7.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and almost two treys in only under Read More

NBA Trade Deadline Fantasy Impact: Making Sense of the Dizzying Deadline Deals

It started slow and ended anything but. If anyone was asked to describe the 2015 NBA trade deadline in seven words, that would be the most fitting description. Thirty-eight players were involved, not to mention a slew of draft picks, and maybe a few broken smartphones from the incessant calls along the way. For some teams, if there ever were broken phones, it's all part of the occupational hazard. For others, not so much. And that could apply for players, too, and us as fantasy basketball loyalists.

DFS Beginner’s Guide: Where to start?

This in-depth article will help educate beginners to the world of daily fantasy sports (DFS). It will show you the thought process of a professional DFS player, and the intricacies needed to build an effective NBA daily fantasy basketball lineup. With the all star breakup upon us, I am stepping back and analyzing my nightly process since I have the time to do so. I figured the best way for me to help is to walk you through how I do my own rosters, so that you can see the thought process, tweak Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 16-17 (Feb. 9-22)

If you own Blake Griffin, you're in trouble right now. His 22.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists will be sorely missed at this crucial time, especially with the Clips trying to hold down the 5th spot in a murderous Western Conference. Griffin underwent successful surgery for a staph infection on his right elbow but he is expected to be out for more than a month. The Clippers will likely be hanging on for dear life during that time and Griffin's missed time on the court is the very reason why. Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 15 (Feb. 2- Feb.8)

The All-Star reserves were announced this past week and as expected, there were some pleasant surprises and robberies along the way. Golden State Warriors' Klay Thompson, Atlanta Hawks' Jeff Teague, and Chicago Bulls' do-it-all swingman Jimmy Butler made it to their first All-Star teams. Thompson is widely regarded as one of the league's top two-way players while Teague and Butler are the motors that keep their respective teams' engines running. Along with Teague, two other Hawks lead the East's Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 14 (Jan.26 – Feb.1)

The NBA All-Star Game is just around the corner and you may have heard the five starters from each conference are all good to go. All of them deserved the call, except maybe Kobe Bryant, who has done nothing this conference but pass (to teammates and non-teammates), shoot bricks, and basically little else. (To be fair, the passing of Michael Jordan as the third all-time leading scorer is one heck of an achievement, but it's more of a lifetime feat than an in-season effort.) Speaking of the All-Star Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 13 (Jan.19- Jan.25)

Honestly, I couldn't remember one season where there are more transactions than Knicks' W's. That's not a knock on the Knickerbockers but more of a nod to the front offices doing everything in their power to be more relevant today or in the future. This week alone saw: Jeff Green move from Boston to Memphis (along with Russ Smith) Tayshaun Prince and Quincy Pondexter from Memphis to New Orleans (along with Grizzlies' future first-round pick to BOS) New Orleans' Austin Rivers was also Read More

Five Tips To Win Your NBA Fantasy Basketball League (For Beginners)

You know I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to everything and that includes NBA fantasy basketball. So what's the point of giving the tips? Well, while what works for you may not work for others (and vice versa), there is an outline for this, a guide if you will so you'll know if you're handling everything right and well. That does not 100% guarantee anything but it will tremendously improve your chances to win your NBA fantasy basketball league. The best thing about Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 12 (Jan.12-Jan.18)

I can barely keep up with the transactions happening around the league and it's still January. In the past few days, the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith from New York while paying a steep price (two first round picks) to land Timofey Mozgov from the Denver Nuggets. Dion Waiters, too, went from Ohio to Oklahoma in the same deal. (Mozgov is potentially more valuable now that he's on a team desperate for a rim-protecting big man. He should be getting minutes as a back-up Read More
