Winning in Daily Fantasy Basketball requires a lot of skill, a little luck, and some really keen nose for advanced statistics. I have won my fair share but don't take my word for it. Let's get the best advice on how to build a winning DFS basketball team from the experts.
We have curated the insight of some of the most famous names in Daily Fantasy Sports, including Michael Rathburn of Rotowire, Dr. Renee Miller, and Joe Kaiser of ESPN. We'll skip the more basic tips and go right down to the meat Read More
NBA November 4, 2015 – Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks
Kent Bazemore ($4,700) vs BKN. Bazemore is averaging 11 points, 5.25 rebounds, and 1.25 steals this season while logging an average of 30 minutes per game as a starter. Bazemore could easily get 30 fantasy points on a weak Nets backcourt.
Evan Fournier ($4,500) @ HOU. The projected total for this game is 208, and Houston's 3 guard backcourt of Lawson, Thornton and Harden are a defensive liability. Fournier dropped 30 points to go Read More
NBA Oct 30 - Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks
Ricky Rubio ($7,800) and Karl-Anthony Towns ($6,100) @ DEN. Rubio put up 28 pts, 14 ast and 2 rebs for a total of 52.4 fantasy points. Rubio was dishing out dimes to his new teammates Karl-Anthony Towns (14 pts, 12 rebs in 32 minutes of play) and Shabazz Muhammad. Rubio should have a distinct advantage over rookie Emmanual Mudlay and veteran Jameer Nelson at the point guard position. In what is expected to be a high scoring game, give me Read More

Russell Westbrook, PG ($12,000)
We all know the situation here and there are two scenarios the Thunder hope goes well in their favor. One is the Spurs beating the Pelicans (out of their control) and OKC winning over the Wolves. The latter is the one they can lay their hands on.
Expect Russell Westbrook to go all demon mode on the undermanned Timberwolves like he was in 38 minutes of work against Portland. The UCLA product flirted with Read More

It's only five games but there are a lot of golden opportunities to win if you look these players' way this Saturday.
LaMarcus Aldridge, PF ($8,700)
LA has been somewhat inconsistent the past four games--scoring in the 40's and 50's sandwiched by games of the 20 and 30-point variety. So how ill Saturday night go? There's no way to tell but the match-up suggests it could probably be the former. In the two rather poor games, Aldridge locked horns Read More
Here are some players you might want to look at in Sunday's 11-game slate. Again, no Russell Westbrook in here.

John Wall, PG ($8,700)
You know what stuff a basketball player is made of when they play hurt AND still play well. John Wall brushed off a sore ankle against Utah and dropped 44 FP against the Clippers. Against Sacramento, there'll be no unfavorable match-up for the quick guard so something in the 40-50 range is inevitably Read More
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. And for the most part in that ugly game at Staples, it was an undrafted slotman out of Kansas,with around $3000 worth of DK salary, that played like the best center on the court.
To sum it up, it was a night of disappointment.
Anthony Davis hurt Read More
Today's game day isn't much-- only a four-game slate-- but there's no day-offs when it comes to DFS right? It just never stops.

Rudy Gobert, C ($8,100)
It's getting redundant putting James Harden in the studs list so let's go a different, but likewise a very rewarding route.
Rudy Gobert's fantasy numbers are absolutely unreal more so in a daily standpoint, getting almost 44 points in the past 10 days. We have one reason to be optimistic Read More
When setting your daily fantasy basketball lineups on say, FanDuel, you're going to need to identify which power forwards and centers to roster. Sometimes it's easy when you have enough value elsewhere in your lineup to roster Anthony Davis or DeMarcus Cousins, but sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to decide or break the tie between a couple of centers to pick just the right one.
One way you can do this is by trying to identify who has the better floor to begin with. Points scored are Read More
For daily fantasy basketball lineup strategy, there are a number of factors that we've shown you so far in this research section that aid in your preparation, but one area I check regularly when finding the best possible matchups and targets to exploit is the area of free throw rate.
Free throw rate is the frequency of fouls occurring, either by the team or the player you are researching.
For example, per StatMuse.com, here is a list of free throw rate leaders for 2014-2015 season, set to a Read More
