Best Value Picks For NBA Playoffs DFS Wednesday– May 8, 2019

The Studs AP Photo Kevin Durant, SF, Golden State Warriors KD has been really special in this series averaging 36 points, along with 4.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists. Game 5 is now at home and with the Rockets really playing well, look for KD to be even better the rest of the way. Draymond Green, PF, Golden State Warriors If you can accommodate Steph Curry, then go for it, but if you want the more consistent performer, Dray is the guy. Game 4 is even an off game for him where he only Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA Playoffs DFS Monday– May 6, 2019

The Studs Draymond Green, PF/C, Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports This guy should be in every DFS roster and if you're not having him, there is something wrong with you. Hell, he can even be considered a bargain with his price. Green is averaging 16 points, 10.7 rebounds, 8.7 assists, a steal and a block in this series and there is no signs of him slowing down. I see him pretty much having a triple-double from hereon out. Kyrie Irving, PG, Boston Celtics Brian Read More

NBA Playoffs Predictions Round 2: Celtics Should Not Fear The Deer

Well, my Round 1 predictions are pretty much spot on except for the Thunder-Blazers series where everyone, including me, picked OKC to win. My reason was that Jusuf Nurkic is too big a piece to lose in the playoffs and Enes Kanter is light years away defensively compared to Nurk. However, I did not know Damian Lillard can do this. Or this. In Portland's case, I have never been happier to be proven wrong. OK, so let's move to the next round and let's see what's going on. Here are my NBA Playoffs 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

NBA DFS Pick’Em Strategy on Nov. 16 – 2017

Only 2 games to pick from tonight, but 3 of the 4 teams are loaded with fantasy talent. I took Joel Embiid in my DFS draft last night and he scored 90+ points. Let’s see if we can pick out some similar gems for tonight’s matchups.

Tier 1: Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving
My Choice: Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS
Boston’s defense is legit; they have the 2nd best defensive rating relative to league average since 1976. Jump shooters are just 16 for 51 from behind the three-point line against Read More

Surprises of the NBA Eastern Conference so Far this Season

The Boston Celtics’ Success without Gordon Hayward
After all the hype and anticipation, it was devastating to see Gordon Hayward go down with a season-ending injury just 5 minutes into the season. The Celtics looked devastated and it showed early on, falling to 0-2 on the season. Since then, they’ve won six straight and the young team seems to have developed something special. With Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, and Jaylen Brown all a year older and more developed, this is one of the deepest teams Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day-- Dec. 19, 2016
1. John Wall/Bradley Beal bad blood over?

Sure looks like it on the court. The Washington Wizards backcourt appears in the top 10 in the NBA's per-game scoring leaders, the only teammates to have done so this season. Beal, for one, is averaging 26.5 points and 3.9 assists over the past 15 games.
2. Al Horford is in the middle of a historic season.

Only two players had an assist rate of over 20% and block rate of over 5% over an entire season: Read More

It's a 10-game slate in the NBA and the big guns are playing but could there be other ways to win other than relying on Russell Westbrook, James Harden, or Demarcus Cousins?

The Studs

Kyle Lowry, PG, Toronto Raptors ($8,200)
The Raptors' efficient offense runs through this guy and it's no surprise that in his recent tear, he brought Toronto along with him. Lowry has scored at least 42 fantasy points in seven of the last eight games and will face a Read More

NBA Fantasy Basketball Team Outlook: Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics teams of decades past (maybe except the mid-90's) always revolved around superstars. From Larry Bird and Kevin McHale to Antoine Walker, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen, it's the franchise's way of securing winning campaigns and championships.
However, the past few years hasn't been that way. You can't fault GM Danny Ainge for not trying, but superstars are hard to come by. That turned out to be a positive in fantasy basketball since Brad Stevens was forced Read More
