Choosing bargains to round up your DFS roster is a hit or miss. But with a three-game slate that features new-look rosters, we could unearth some hidden gems here and there.
1.) Chasson Randle, PG, Orlando Magic
Randle is admittedly not a high-ceiling player, but with the Magic short-handed in basically every position, he saw himself at the helm against Portland. He was mediocre--tallying 10 points, two rebounds, two dimes, and a steal-- but he played 27 minutes and his backup Karim Read More
Recap: We gave you 5 names as bargain options for Saturday but only two did come up decent. Troy Brown was above-average (16 points, two rebounds, five assists, 1 steal) while Jerami Grant (13 points, four rebounds, 1 ast, 1 steal, 1 block) and Jordan Clarkson were solid (13 points, three assists, 2 steals).
Now, here's another 5 names to consider as bargains for Sunday's six-game slate:
1.) Elfrid Payton, PG, New York Knicks
Yahoo: $18; DraftKings: $4,400
Payton has evidently locked the PG minutes Read More
1.) Harrison Barnes, PF, Sacramento Kings
Barnes has been picking up the slack with Marvin Bagley out averaging a cool 19.2 points, five rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.8 steals on 50% shooting (40% from deep) over the last five games. During that span, he scored over 30 fantasy points in each.
2.) Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG/SF, Sacramento Kings
Took a while but Bogie is finally starting to get hot.
In the past two games, Bogdanovic is registering 21 points, three rebounds, four assists, 1.5 steals, and Read More
Julius Randle, PF, New Orleans Pelicans
With key players out (Jrue Holiday) and status uncertain (Anthony Davis and Elfrid Payton) coming into Thursday night, Randle will go and handle a heavy load against Sacramento. The Kings are not a good defensive rebounding team making them vulnerable to Randle's bully ball inside. If that happens, the former Kentucky Wildcat is looking at a big, big night.
De'Aaron Fox, PG, Sacramento Kings
Meanwhile, Sacramento will be looking at the Read More
Constructing a lineup in daily fantasy basketball is half knowledge and half gut feel. Once you had the knowledge part down to pat, you may want to resort to your intuition especially when you had to choose between players that make the most sense. That is especially true when we have a pretty hectic 8-game slate. So without much ado, here is our best fantasy basketball lineup for today:
Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets
You can't go wrong with them studs (KAT and Luka are all playing) Read More
1. Shabazz Napier, PG, Portland Trail Blazers
Napier has filled in nicely for the injured Damian Lillard the last three games and has recorded at least 35 Fantasy Points in the last four and had 11 points, 5 rebounds, and six assists against Chicago.
2. Bogdan Bogdanovic, SF, Sacramento Kings
With averages of 12.3 points, 5.3 assists, 3.3 rebounds with defensive numbers in the past 3 games, it looks like Bogdanovic will be a very good streamline pick for weeks to come.
3. Taurean Prince, Read More
