1.) Rudy Gobert, C, Utah Jazz (Buy Low) Currently ranked 126th in Yahoo and 66th in the Player Rater, Rudy Gobert is not the top-20 player we projected him to be in a VERY SMALL SAMPLE SIZE.
The rebounds are there (12.0) but since he is dependent on one category (blocks) that is basically non-existent for his standards (1.1), the Stifle Tower is relegated to that very low fantasy ranking. Couple that with an unusually high turnover rate (2.9 per game) and that's a recipe for disaster.
Which means Read More
1.) Dario Saric, PF, Phoenix Suns Saric is a little up-and-down for the Suns but they will draw the Croatian's former team, the Sixers, at home.
I don't know if there's any scientific study out there but these NBA players do hold grudges against their former teams. I won't be surprised if Saric will be a little more motiviated for tomorrow's tiff.
2.) Any of the Sixer trio Joel Embiid is serving the second of a two-game suspension which means Tobias Harris, Al Horford, and Ben Simmons all have 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
I'll be the very first one to admit that there is no such thing as a perfect draft unless you're competing with six year olds. But relatively speaking, you can pretty much nail a fantasy basketball draft if you come prepared. and has a clear goal in mind.
The league scoring also matters and for this article, let's hypothetically consider how to complete the (near) perfect standard points league draft.
In a points league, the general rule is go for high-efficiency bigs (high FG% ) over high-volume, 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. Fantasy Impact On The Lakers After Read More
Many of us already have Golden State as three-peat champions at the start of the season (although the East's Milwaukee, Toronto, and Boston begs to disagree) and already looking forward to 2019-20. In fantasy basketball, it's normal to look ahead, especially in keeper leagues. Now is the time to sift through and investigate who you have and determine whether they are worth a keeper spot in your roster. If you have any of these 7 guys all under 24 yrs of age, though, be sure you have them as fantasy Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Monday, Feb. 25, 2019:
Chris Paul, PG, Houston Rockets
We know it's only a matter of time before Chris Paul gets himself in the groove of things and that time appears to be now. With James Harden out of the lineup, CP3 will carry the fight for the Rockets against Atlanta, the same way he did versus Golden State. By the way, CP has had two 50-FP games in a row and here's to hoping he'll make it three.
Kevin Love, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Love torched Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Saturday:
James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets
I'm trying to be a contrarian here with the Harden pick and Houston unexpectedly struggling on offense. The Beard still put up elite numbers (26.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.6 steals) but not the jaw-dropping lines we see from him in seasons past.
What does that mean? That means he is due for an explosive showing and it could come at the expense of the Spurs, who is 23rd in the league when it comes to Read More
1. Kevin Durant, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors
Starting with the highest-paid guy, KD is a no-brainer must-start for every DFS team. You have earned as much when you average 34 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, and 3 blocks in a four-game span. Expect that kind of numbers especially with Steph Curry out, but since Draymond Green could be on the shelf as well against the Lakers, the Slim Reaper should go berserk in Kobe's jersey retirement night.
2. Omri Casspi, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors
Casspi Read More
1. Another milestone for The King...
Congrats to @KingJames of the @cavs for moving up to 10th on the all-time Field Goals Made list with 10,660! #ThisIsWhyWePlay pic.twitter.com/GrnqxWfIzB

2. Just a thought: Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram, the No. 1 and No. 2 pick of 2016, got their first 30-point games on the same night.
3. Proof that the NBA is a player's league: Mike D'Antoni's Rockets is sixth in the NBA in defensive efficiency while Tom Thibodeau's Wolves Read More
