Jan. 6, 2020 recap:
OK, Jingles gave me 39 FP so I'm pretty happy with the result along with JJ Redick's 27 FP on a near-minimum salary. As I have suggested, it would be best if you spend top dollar on Monday night's crop of point guards especially Luka Doncic and/or Lonzo Ball and both kept it rolling against their respective opponents.
Doncic has recorded his 10th 30-point triple-double, the most by a 20-year old in NBA history while Ball had 21 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists for around Read More
A six-game slate on Sunday provides us with a lot of options but you need to give it a second thought before you decide to tap the services of any of these players.
1.) Luka Doncic, PG, Mavericks Doncic possibly came up with the best game of his career against LeBron James and the Lakers but he did not come out unscathed on that one.
While he did register an insane 31-13-15 outing, he needed stitches after he was hit by the head. The Mavs did not rule him out Sunday versus Cleveland (for now) but Read More
Finally! After months of waiting, probably the most exciting NBA season in recent memory comes around. NBA Tipoff 2019 starts with a two-game slate featuring New Orleans and Toronto and the Los Angeles heavyweights, the Lakers and Clippers.
Who will provide the best value come Tuesday? Here are some players to consider:
Anthony Davis, PF/C, Lakers ($10,200) Choosing who to get for your "max" money is relatively easy and in this two-game slate, you can choose among Anthony Davis, LeBron Read More
The first domino of the offseason has fallen and we are feeling the effects of the fallout. What we would like to know, though, is how the Anthony Davis trade from the Pelicans to the Lakers impacts both teams in a fantasy perspective. Here's how the deal went down: https://twitter.com/wojespn/status/1140023139142971392 Along those lines, the other two first-round picks are open for swaps and protections/unprotections over the next four years or so.

Who To Pick And Avoid For NBA DFS Saturday-- March 2, 2019
Who To Pick
Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder
Russ is still doing Westbrook things and now that PG is sidelined ahead of Saturday's matchup with San Antonio, look for Westbrook's usage to skyrocket. He had a 24-assist game this season versus the Spurs so he has proven he can bring his A-game against this team.
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Golden State Warriors
Cousins is a favorite of mine because he can pile up fantasy points in a Read More
Who To Pick
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
If you have gone for two whole months accounting for at least 40 FP, you're a definite stud. PG13 is averaging 37.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 2.2 steals in his last 5 games with no signs of slowing down. As we go into the homestretch, expect more of the same, if not more, from Paul George.
Lou Williams, SG, Los Angeles Clippers
Without Tobias Harris, the Clippers will have to lean more on Lou Will for their playoff push. He responded Read More
If you could redo the draft all over again, would you have picked the same players or are you ready to move on? Well, just to put it out there, there is no such thing as a perfect draft but I am still doing well in my leagues so the answer would be kind of in the middle.
That said, there are certain players who are can't miss, which means if they somehow fall in your lap, you better not take five seconds before you pull the damn trigger. What we are going to do is go through six rounds of drafting Read More
We are almost halfway through the season (some teams have already played 39 games) so allow me to rank the 5 best centers for fantasy basketball right now. Looking at how the chips fall, only one player in this list can be considered a pleasant surprise but find out why I don't think he will be able to sustain his pace.
1.) Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans Davis is the measuring stick of the modern big man-- can score, rebound, pass, and can stretch the floor a little bit. He may be the consensus No. Read More
Who To Own
Anthony Davis, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans
Davis' salary can be crippling but with a nine-game slate, it's easier to find production at a discount. I mean, how can you go wrong on picking someone who dropped over 60 fantasy points after leaving the pre-game warmups to vomit? The Pelicans will be playing Sacramento, another ultra fast-paced team, making this a very fantasy-friendly matchup.
Lou Williams, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Read More
Who To Own
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers
If you have one big-time player to own on Friday, my money is on LeBron James. The Lakers are losers of three straight and it will be their first time back at home after a four-game road trip so James will be looking to put on a show. He is averaging 26 points, nine rebounds, 7.6 assists, a steal, and 2.2 3PM over the last five games. Scary thing is, we know he's capable of doing more.
Marcus Smart, SG, Boston Celtics
Smart has been a fantasy Read More
