Jimmy Butler's wish came true as the Minnesota Timberwolves decided to move into a different direction and trade the disgruntled star to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers parted ways with Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, and a future second-round pick to make the deal work.
As much as we are in awe right now because of the recent power shift, the fantasy-head in us only care about how the trade affects our fantasy teams going forward. Who are the biggest winners and losers in the Read More
The NBA is down to its homestretch and while the top teams are already preparing for the playoffs, a handful of others positioning themselves for a nicer seed. Who can you trust to push you above NBA DFS Thursday?
1. Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets
OK, here's the deal: Denver is currently on the outside looking in on the playoff picture BUT they get to host No. 7 Minnesota Thursday night. The two teams are half a game away from each other and if the Nuggets actually beat the Wolves, they'll Read More
1. Khris Middleton, SG, Milwaukee Bucks ($8,600)
K-Mid picked up the slack in the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo versus Philly, posting a huge triple-double with 23 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists. The Greek Freak will be out once again Monday so even though FanDuel increased Middleton's salary by a whopping 1,200 bucks since his last outing, you'd definitely want him on your DFS lineup against the Suns.
2. Eric Bledsoe, PG, Milwaukee Bucks ($8,300)
You can argue that Bled is a little 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.
TUESDAY - OCT. 24, 2017
Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS ($8,700)
There are a lot of reasons to like Kyrie tonight. The Read More
NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks-- Dec. 17, 2016
Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix Suns ($7,700)
Bled is one of the higher-priced studs in the position you must keep an eye on. Notwithstanding the dud against San Antonio, Bledsoe has recorded four 50-FP games in the last six, averaging 41.6 fantasy points during that span. In comparison, Steph Curry only had a 40-FP average in the past seven games and he is $800 more expensive.
Reggie Jackson, Detroit Pistons ($5,400)
Jackson saw his minute Read More
NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks-- Nov. 13, 2016
Kemba Walker, PG, Charlotte Hornets ($7,900)
There's no other Russell Westbrook, but in the past few games, Walker is doing his best Russ impression. And at a less than $3,000 price tag, he is worth every penny.
In the past three games, Walker averaged over 53 fantasy points that culminated in a 61-FP performance vs the Toronto Raptors. The Hornets draw Cleveland in their next game, but I doubt the Cavs defense could do something against Read More
On the rise?
Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota Timberwolves
Wiggins provide the one thing that shooting guards should and that's putting the ball through the hoop. On only his second year in the league, the Canadian wing already ranked No. 5 among two's in scoring (20.7) which is nice. He also has a knack of getting fouled (5th among guards with seven FTA per game), which is, again, very nice. However, he is pedestrian anywhere else and is not exactly someone you'd rely on to supply three-point shooting.

January 25, 2015-- DFS Basketball Best Value Picks:
A nine-game slate provides us with plenty of options from down to bottom:
Kemba Walker, PG ($8,400)
Just three days ago, Kemba obliterated the Orlando Magic defense with 40 points. A couple days before that, he torched the Utah Jazz with 52! That's how crazy Walker has gone the past week against very stout defenses.
Now imagine what he can do to Sacramento, who plays with the highest pace in the NBA and also allows the most points Read More
1. Inter-Conference Battles
The East is leading the West 93-90 in these match-ups. If the East keeps this up, this will be the first time since 2009 that they are going to have a winning record versus the West.
Looks like it's a long time coming...
2. LeBron James could have 37 more triple-doubles in his career...
if he had just one more assist or rebound. That could have brought his triple-double career total from 57 to 90!
3. Speaking of missing...
Kyle Korver has clanked 18 straight three-point Read More
