Victor Oladipo, PG/SG, Indiana Pacers ($8,000)
Oladipo has been a monster this season and has just set career-highs in rebounds and steals in back-to-back games. The former Hoosier has topped at least 40 FP in 5 of his last 10 plus they will be facing a Raptors team that is among the league's worst in stopping opposing shooting guards.
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder ($8,000)
PG has been on a roll the last three games including back-to-back 50FP games against New Orleans and Golden State. Read More
Hopefully you listened to my advice yesterday, here's a quick recap:
Steph Curry dropped 29 points, Ben Simmons finally got his triple-double thanks to his hybrid-PG status, and Otto Porter was impressive again with a double-double. Frank Kaminsky scored 18 points including 3-4 from 3-point range, and Avery Bradley had a mixed night with 15 points, but just 1-5 from beyond the arc.

There are a lot of reasons to like Kyrie tonight. The Read More
1. Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks
It's not that the Greek Freak will produce anything less than a 45-point DFS night, but I just don't like the fact that they're on the tail end of a back-to-back. Of course, I could be wrong and the possibility that Giannis will go ballistic against Portland after a loss to LeBron James and the Cavs but I favor James Harden (without CP3) at home against Dallas or Blake Griffin against Phoenix.

Best NBA DFS Value Picks-- November 5, 2016
Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG, Milwaukee Bucks ($9,500)
Of course, the biggest studs from around here are Russell Westbrook and James Harden but if you're looking for somebody cheaper, The Greek Freak ain't so bad. Giannis posted 55.3 fantasy points in only 33 minutes of work last Thursday and don't be surprised if he replicates or surpasses that number against Sacramento.
Chris Paul, PG, LA Clippers ($8,100)
CP3 may be the most productive player Read More
For a team that does not have a pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder did pretty well. They parted ways with their most consistent big guy in the past five years or so (Serge Ibaka) but ended up hauling more talent than they could have possibly imagined (Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova, and 11th pick Domantas Sabonis).
Ibaka may be the best player in the trade by default but Oladipo is not far behind, while Ilyasova is a legit sharpshooting big man who is not afraid to mix it up Read More
The whole season- grind in fantasy basketball can be won on many different counts. But if you're thinking having a top two or three pick will automatically make you a lock to dominate your league, you better think again.
Sure, it would be nice to pick LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony for the first two rounds, but unless they are messing around, your peers could have the same firepower as you during those early stages.
What am I getting at here? What I'm saying is, most fantasy leagues are won Read More
There's not much to like about the Orlando Magic last season except that they let their group of youngsters develop and see for themselves what works and what doesn't.
It's especially encouraging to see then-coach Jacque Vaughn decide to let Elfrid Payton get all the minutes he can in during the last 20 games or so. The Louisiana-Lafayette product never played less than 31 minutes and the results, however mixed they were, are worth something to look forward to.
This season, the Read More

Russell Westbrook, PG ($12,000)
We all know the situation here and there are two scenarios the Thunder hope goes well in their favor. One is the Spurs beating the Pelicans (out of their control) and OKC winning over the Wolves. The latter is the one they can lay their hands on.
Expect Russell Westbrook to go all demon mode on the undermanned Timberwolves like he was in 38 minutes of work against Portland. The UCLA product flirted with Read More
