Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Friday– Jan. 17, 2020

Thurday's picks were a rousing success so I've got to roll at least one more time: The Jazz lost to New Orleans, no thanks to Brandon Ingram's career-high 49 points, but Rudy Gobert is still on that unbelievable streak. That's now five straight double-doubles for the Stifle Tower (17 points, 14 rebounds) but the four assists and three blocks made all the difference. As predicted, Kemba Walker was a little more aggressive than he was the past few games and racked up 40 points and 11 rebounds plus Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Thursday Jan. 16, 2020

Let's do best value picks once again since the last time I did it, it was raining fantasy points all over. Here's a short recap: I recommended Devin Booker and Rudy Gobert and boy, were they nuclear. Booker stuffed the stat sheet (39 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals) and Gobert dominated the glass while scoring over 20 for consecutive games (22 points, 18 rebounds, four assists, one steal, and two blocks). Eric Bledsoe was below average by his standards but he only played 21 minutes Read More

5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Dec. 13, 2019

We brought you three bargain options (plus other suggestions) for Dec. 12, 2019 and here's a short recap: Jakob Poeltl-- Fairly solid, but delivered what I thought was the worst-case scenario for the Austrian big man. He had four points, three rebounds, an assist, plus four "stocks" in 22 minutes. He delivered a little bit better numbers in only 18 minutea against the Kings but that's how it is. He'll be better if LaMarcus Aldridge is out, which does not happen very often. Gary Harris- Jamal Murray Read More

3 players to build your Draftkings lineup around. Nov 22.

It is a nice 10 game slate tonight, here are 3 players to build your Draftkings lineup around.   Washington Post Bradley Beal, $9,600 Beal has been on an absolute tear over the past few games. 34,33,44 and 44 points in the last 4 games and he played 37 or more minutes in each game.

Fantasy Basketball Specialists Who Can Save Your DRaft

Points Eric Paschall, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors USA Today Paschall is averaging 15.6 points in the season, which is certainly not bad for a rookie. But in the past three games, the 23-year old is good for 20.3 points a game, even better scoring than Kemba Walker, Blake Griffin, or Kristaps Porzingis over that span.Without D'Angelo Russell, Steph Curry, and Klay Thompson, the Warriors will need every scoring drop from Paschall's repertoire. That's why he is going to be one of the better Read More

Daily Fantasy Notes– Nov. 12, 2019

It seems like Rajon Rondo is still going to help a lot of fantasy teams in assists. With dimes being the hardest category to recover from (only a total of 36 players are averaging at least FIVE assists per game this season), Rondo's 41.2% career AST rate will come in handy.  In his first game for the Lakers this season, Rondo delivered SEVEN assists plus six rebounds in only 14 minutes of play. Trae Young just became the youngest player in NBA history to record three consecutive games of at least Read More

5 Weird and Amazing Stat Lines Very Early In The 2019-20 Season

I know there were only 13 games played out of a gazillion more to come but for a stathead like me, I couldn't help but feel giddy. After all, it's about time to overreact. Here are 5 of the weirdest and most amazing stat lines to start the season: 1. Mike Conley's Horrible Jazz Debut The Jazz got the win alright, but no thanks to Mike Conley and his pathetic shooting performance.  He shot only 1-for-16 in his first real NBA game in a Jazz uniform adding five assists and two turnovers in 27 minutes Read More
