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
Nikola Jokic and the Best Value Picks for NBA DFS Monday-- Mar. 4, 2019
Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets
The best matchups to choose are those between playoff-bound teams in the West, exactly what Nuggets v Spurs brings. Jokic would be the best big man in this outing, no disrespect to LaMarcus Aldridge, and is a consistent triple-double threat. He played only 22 foul-plagued minutes and still contributed 20-9-7 with 2 steals and 2 blocks in his last outing. If he gets the foul problem Read More
If you could redo the draft all over again, would you have picked the same players or are you ready to move on? Well, just to put it out there, there is no such thing as a perfect draft but I am still doing well in my leagues so the answer would be kind of in the middle.
That said, there are certain players who are can't miss, which means if they somehow fall in your lap, you better not take five seconds before you pull the damn trigger. What we are going to do is go through six rounds of drafting Read More
DeAaron Fox, PG, Sacramento Kings
Fox has been an absolute monster, dropping more than 40 fantasy points in six consecutive games. The speedy point guard admitted he has been hounded by a minor shoulder issue but does not plan to miss any time. That means owners should continue to deploy him in their DFS lineups with no worries.
Fred VanVleet, PG, Toronto Raptors
FVV has been struggling with his shot but with Kyle Lowry out, he'll have every opportunity to perform. He has been averaging Read More
Al Horford, C, Boston Celtics
Horford's numbers are never eye-popping but more so this season. He hasn't had double-digit rebounds since October 20 and his season-high in points is only 19. So why would you pick him up to start for your DFS roster? Because his best fantasy game came against the Raptors on October 19th, where he amassed 14 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists. A matchup against the best of the East may ignite some fire for the veteran. Plus, his modest salary certainly doesn't Read More
Paul George, SF, Oklahoma City Thunder ($9,500)
PG13 has been nothing less than phenomenal, scoring at least 25 points in 11 of his past 13 and draining 52 threes during that span. The Thunder will have a favorable matchup against the Sacramento Kings so expect PG to pick up where he left off.
Spencer Dinwiddie, PG, Brooklyn Nets ($7,000)
Dinwiddie has arguably been the Nets best player of the season, consistently producing very solid numbers since he took over the starting PG reigns. Even with Read More
Paul George, SF, OKC ($10,000)
George has been on fire the past couple of games while filling in for injured Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony. He’s averaging 55.6 FPPG over his last 3 games, which is 16 points above his season average. Cleveland’s “new look” team is a lot faster, but they still let up a ton of points to Boston. Westbrook is a GTD, and George’s price is much more affordable.
De’Aaron Fox, PG, SAC ($6,000)
Fox is having a great rookie season that no one is Read More
DeMar Derozan, SG, TOR ($9,600)
Derozan has been a low-key MVP candidate this year and has separated himself from Kyle Lowry as the clear leader of the Raptors. No one really talks about the Raptors, or Derozan, but he’s been on an absolute tear lately, averaging 46 FPPG over his last 4 games. He gets the Cavs tonight at 8:00pm, and Cleveland has been abysmal on defense lately. We saw what Jimmy Butler did against LeBron and Co. and I expect another huge game from DeRozan. His price is relatively Read More
These are basically predictions so it should be taken with a grain of salt. However, it is obvious that some teams can offer rookies the opportunity right off the bat. (Hello, Atlanta and Brooklyn!)
Jayson Tatum, for example, averaged 18.2 points and 8.8 rebounds in 5 Summer League games en route to a slot in the All-Summer League second team. But could he even crack the 20-minute mark with Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart in front of him in the rotation? Time can only answer the Read More
