Top 5 Candidates For 2020 Most Improved Player

If the season is officially over, who are your candidates for Most Improved Player? Well, that's a tough question since the "Most Improved" tag can simply be theoretical. Is your MIP rose from relative obscurity to prominence? Someone who was good but kept adding up to his game? Or perhaps a first-time All-Star? Who knows, but every young star appearing on this list definitely has a case. Let's start with someone from the most pleasant surprise teams, the Oklahoma City Thunder: 1.) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS March 1, 2020

Saturday's picks were kind of on point except for the horrible Ricky Rubio suggestion. I mean who would have thought he can only muster 6-3-8 with 5 TOs against a Golden State team with no point guard.  Rubio came in with 45 assists and 16 steals in the last four games so who can blame me for giving him a vote of confidence? That said, Jayson Tatum (32-13-5 plus two steals and two blocks), Robert Covington (16 rebounds and 3 blocks) , and Jaylen Brown (22-5-3 plus a steal and a block) were phenomenal, Read More

Brandon Ingram, Fred VanVleET, And The ADP All-Stars

Season-long fantasy basketball is a tricky business that combines foresight and sheer luck. The most important key to winning your league is, not on the first two rounds or a midseason stash, but somehow finding someone that vastly outperforms his Average Draft Position (ADP). You do that and you win your league. That's it. Show's over. Now, if you have one or two or three of these players, you definitely are among the top teams in your league. If you don't get lazy and set your lineup night in Read More

3 players to build your DraftKings lineup around. Jan 3rd.

Friday Picks Thank God 2019 is over. The start to this season has been my worst stretch of DFS Basketball I have had since I started playing. I couldn’t get anything going, I would be so comfortable and confident with a lineup and then watch it shit the bed over and over again. I’m going to turn it around in 2020, I have too, there is no possible way I could do any worse.  The 3 players I pick have been pretty good, I will miss on the occasional player, but for the most part they have been Read More

7 Buy Low/Sell High Candidates Early In The Season

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

5 Must-Plays For NBA DFS Nov. 3, 2019

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

How TO Pull Off The Perfect Fantasy Basketball Draft (Points)

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

Fantasy Impact of the Anthony Davis Trade

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.

These 7 Young Guys Should Be Fantasy Basketball Keepers For Next Season

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.

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
