10 Biggest Fantasy Losers In 2019 NBA Free Agency

1.) D'Angelo Russell Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports Russell just became the first option of a young Nets team to probably an off-the-ball scorer in Golden State with Steph Curry the focal point of the offense. The first-time All-Star excels when he has the ball making decisions on pick-and-rolls, something he may not be able to do with Curry around. (According to NBA.com/stats, the percentage of unassisted field goals by Russell last season is at 71.2%, which means he is more of a shot-creator Read More

7 Random NBA Stats and Facts– July 22, 2019

1.) New Stockton to Malone? Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports The most assisted play of the 2018-19 season is James Harden to Clint Capela. The second is Russell Westbrook to Steven Adams. So, with Brodie and The Beard on the Rockets, how many points will Capela score next season? 2.) Speaking of Harden... James Harden's 36.1 PPG average last season was the most since Michael Jordan in 1986-87. James Harden had a 32-game stretch where Harden scored 30 points or more. In addition, Harden Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Monday– Feb. 25, 2019

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Monday, Feb. 25, 2019:
The Studs
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

5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day

1.) By A Wide Margin

As in wiiiidddddeeeee!

James Harden is the league's leader for total points scored at 2,006. The second behind him is Paul George at 1,650, which is a 356-point gap. And if you're wondering how many of those are free throws-- it's 546, which is about 27% of his total point production.
2.) All-Star Lineup?
On paper, a lineup of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and DeMarcus Cousins may very well be the best. It seems like defenses are adjusting Read More

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Tuesday– Oct. 30, 2018

Chris Paul, PG, Houston Rockets

Honestly, I think it's a toss-up between Kawhi Leonard and CP3 (and you can't go wrong with either) but I'll take Paul with James Harden potentially out against Portland.  Of course, Kawhi has been terrific for the Raptors lately (26.6 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.6 steals, and 0.6 blocks) and after a day off against Milwaukee, the Klaw will be unleashed in a matchup against Ben Simmons.  Again, any one of those two will produce, and if you're willing to Read More

5 Must-Start Players For NBA DFS Wednesday– Dec. 20, 2017

1. Julius Randle, PF, Los Angeles Lakers ($5,500)

JR is No. 1 on this list for a reason. He will probably start Wednesday against the Houston Rockets with Brook Lopez nursing an ankle injury and that alone should net his fantasy points in the high 30's. The Kentucky product is averaging 13.3 points, 6.3 rebounds. 2.5 assists, and 1.3 blocks in the past four games while only playing 26 minutes a night.
2. Mario Hezonja, SF, Orlando Magic ($4,800)

At long last, we had a Mario sighting in Read More

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

NBA Playoffs DFS: 3 Players To Build Around On Sunday (April 23, 2017)

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Build Around On Sunday (April 23, 2017)
Chris Paul, PG, Los Angeles Clippers ($9,800)

No brainer. Blake Griffin is out for the rest of the playoffs so the burden falls squarely on the shoulders of Chris Paul. It's not like we could ask more from CP3. He has not scored less than 47 fantasy points in the first three games and with BG gone, that production could go LeBron-esque at over $2,000 less.
DeAndre Jordan, C, Los Angeles Clippers ($7,900)

Again, with Read More

Best NBA DFS Value Picks-- November 5, 2016
The Studs
Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG, Milwaukee Bucks ($9,500)
Of course, the biggest studs from around here are Russell Westbrook and James Harden but if you're looking for somebody cheaper, The Greek Freak ain't so bad. Giannis posted 55.3 fantasy points in only 33 minutes of work last Thursday and don't be surprised if he replicates or surpasses that number against Sacramento.
Chris Paul, PG, LA Clippers ($8,100)
CP3 may be the most productive player Read More
