Christmas Recap Ben Simmons    55.25 FPTs    15P/14A/7R/3S/2B Lou Williams      21FPTs      6P/7A/2R/2S Enes Kanter    27.75 FPTs    12P/11R/1A   NBC Sports Simmons had a great 1st half against the Bucks. He filled the stat sheet scoring 6 points, he dished out 8 assist and grabbed 3 rebounds. He also had 2 steal and 1 block. Unlike most of my picks who have a hot first half, Simmons continued to roll in the second half. He surpassed his fantasy average by 15 points.  Lou Williams Read More

Merry Christmas, here are 3 players to build your DraftKings Linuep around.

Monday Recap Bradley Beal   47 FPTs    30P/3A/4R Julius Randle   50.75 FPTs   35P/2A/5R/2S/1B Tristan Thompson    24 FPTs   3P/2A/10R/2S/1B Yahoo Bradley Beal had another fantastic game, he put up 30 points against the Knicks, his 4th 30 point game in the last 5. Beal is the main reason the awful Washington Wizards are one of the top offensive teams in the league, they are 3rd in points scored with 117.5 per game. I will be taking Beal until his salary forces me to look for a cheaper Read More

5 Unpopular Fantasy basketball Takes Coming Into The season

1.) Russell Westbrook is still top-10 in fantasy basketball. This year's fantasy draft has Brodie as an early Round 2 pick but even with James Harden around, the Rockets offense is designed to accomodate another high-usage player. And it's not like Westbrook has not played with Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Paul George before. Last season was a down year for Westbrook and he still finished in the top 15. Odds are he will not be averaging a triple-double for the fourth straight year but he Read More

Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS Friday– Dec. 7, 2018

Players To OWN:
Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, Miami Heat

Olynyk has strung up three good games in a row and with Hassan Whiteside not playing Friday against Phoenix, Olynyk should soak up most of the minutes. He has averaged 14 points, seven rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.3 steals the last three outings with probably the best one coming up against an anemic Suns defense.
Darren Collision, PG, Indiana Pacers

Most would probably pick Tyreke Evans as the most likely beneficiary of Victor Oladipo's injury, Read More

Fantasy Winners And Losers In The Jimmy Butler Trade

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

3 Building Blocks For NBA DFS Tuesday– April 10, 2018

We're heading down the homestretch of the season but Daily Fantasy Basketball isn't quite done yet. Here are the 3 players you can build with on a six-game NBA DFS Tuesday.
Ben Simmons, PG, Philadelphia 76ers

Simmons is a lock for ROY but the way he is playing lately, I say give him an All-NBA spot right here right now. The Aussie is averaging a triple-double for the past month (14.2 points, 10 rebounds, and 10.6 assists) along with 1.8 steals and 0.6 blocks. The Sixers are looking to lock Read More

3 Building Blocks For NBA DFS Tuesday– April 3, 2018

Ben Simmons, PG, Philadelphia 76ers

The Sixers are headed to the playoffs and Ben Simmons is a big reason why. The seven-foot point guard is practically averaging a triple-double over the past month, putting up 12.4 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 10.8 assists during that stretch. And speaking of triple-doubles, Simmons has collected 7 of them in the past 11.

Philadelphia will be facing the lowly Nets and will be without Joel Embiid to close out the season so in Ben we should trust.
Paul Millsap, Read More

3 Building Blocks For FanDuel NBA DFS Tuesday– March 6, 2018

Ben Simmons, PG, Philadelphia 76ers ($8,800)
The Houston-OKC tiff is intriguing with a lot of big names but if you want to spread out the wealth with the same ceiling for a huge outing, try Ben Simmons. The Aussie has just torched their would-be opponent Charlotte four days ago with 15 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, and a block. It would be nice to add more scoring and defensive stats but that should still be one heck of a stat line.
Jrue Holiday, SG, New Orleans Pelicans ($8,500)
Holiday has Read More

NBA DFS Players to Target – Dec. 18, 2017

Ben Simmons, PF, PHI ($9,900)
Simmons scored 48.2 FP on Friday against OKC. He’s had the whole weekend to rest, and he gets a good matchup with the lowly Bulls tonight. Joel Embiid is sitting out tonight for rest, which means Simmons is in for a huge workload and more rebounds. He’s being priced below Towns, Westbrook, Harden and Durant, but has a legit chance to be a top 3 performer tonight.
Kemba Walker, PG, CHA ($8,000)
Kemba Walker is as stable as they come. He’s averaging a solid 36.7 Read More
