Best Players To Draft In Fantasy Basketball

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

5 Best Power Forwards For Fantasy Basketball

As basketball evolved into more of a positionless game, the line between forwards, guards, and centers has blurred. The same can be said of the power forward position. From bruisers and bangers, the modern power forward is expected to space the floor, bring the ball up if needed, and basically do everything. We know that many of the top centers and small forwards are also eligible for the "4" but since we want to rank players uniquely for every position, we arrived with this. Here are the 5 best Read More

3 Building Blocks For NBA DFS Friday– March 2, 2018

Russell Westbrook, PG, Oklahoma City Thunder ($11,900) I usually don't suggest putting the guy with the highest salary but against the Phoenix Suns, I beg to differ. The Suns have been the worst in the league in giving up points (113 points) and ranks 24th when it comes to opponent field goal percentage. I expect Brodie to come out guns ablaze and even come up with a triple-double. Josh Jackson, SF, Phoenix Suns ($5,700) Jackson has recently been on fire recently and produced 29 points on 9-of-16 Read More

NBA Fantasy Basketball: 5 Players That Are Trending Upwards

1. Patrick Beverley, PG, Los Angeles Clippers Patrick Beverley won't be in the top tier of point guards anytime soon but fantasy-wise, he could be a big help on anybody's roster this upcoming season. The 1st team All-Defense member is a solid playmaker, a hard-nosed defender, and a respectable enough shooter to warrant a spot as the third PG in your fantasy roster. He's now out of James Harden's shadow and playing alongside Milos Teodosic should allow PatBev to feature his scoring more. According Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 20

Rudy Gobert messed up everybody's lineup last night and by everybody, I meant me and more than a third of daily fantasy basketball junkies that spent 16% of their cap for the French center. If you've been here long enough, you can do a lot with $8100.

To sum it up, it was a night of disappointment. Anthony Davis hurt Read More

NBA Fantasy Forecaster Week 16-17 (Feb. 9-22)

If you own Blake Griffin, you're in trouble right now. His 22.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists will be sorely missed at this crucial time, especially with the Clips trying to hold down the 5th spot in a murderous Western Conference. Griffin underwent successful surgery for a staph infection on his right elbow but he is expected to be out for more than a month. The Clippers will likely be hanging on for dear life during that time and Griffin's missed time on the court is the very reason why. Read More
