3 Weird Stats And Numbers Early In The 2018-19 NBA Season
1.) Denver's Defense
No one sees the Denver Nuggets as a mauling defensive juggernaut, but 11 games into the season, they are sitting in the upper echelon of the league when it comes to stopping opponents.
According to NBAstats.com, the Nuggets just sit behind the Boston Celtics in defensive rating (101.6) while ranking inside the top 10 in defensive rebounding percentage (4th), steals (4th), opponents' field goals made (4th), opponents' Read More
NBA DFS Wednesday-- Nov. 1, 2018
DeMar DeRozan, SG, San Antonio Spurs
Who knew DeMar DeRozan can be THIS good? He is averaging career-highs almost all across the board including points (28.3), rebounds (6.0), and assists (8.0). He is still not a deep threat but who cares?
Look for DeRozan to do more of the same against Phoenix. The only caveat here is if the Spurs blow this game out for good and rest the starters for a good chunk. If that happens, we just cross our fingers that he has already Read More
Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL ($11,800)
Giannis has been a beast so far in March, eclipsing 50 FP in 3 of his last 4 games. He gets the Knicks tonight who are in full tank mode and Giannis should have open lanes to the hoop all night. Be sure to target tanking teams like the Suns, Bulls, Knicks and Kings for the rest of the season.
Isaiah Thomas, PG, LAL ($6,700)
Thomas’ demotion to the second unit has driven his DFS price down. He had 13 points and 9 assists on Wednesday, and more Read More
Kevin Durant, SF, GSW, $10,000
If Durant can calm down and not get thrown out of tonight’s game, then I love his value at $10K. With Steph Curry out the next two weeks with an ankle injury, look for KD to absorb a lot of Curry’s stats and shots. He’s had some ankle issues of his own recently, but he gets a nice matchup with the Hornets tonight.
Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS, $8,900
“The Mask” has been heating up as of late, and hopefully Jayson Tatum’s improved shooting Read More
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
1. What's DeAndre Jordan doing in there?
Perhaps the most mind-boggling stat for US: They've blocked 2 shots total over the last 2 games.

2. Should Coach K play Harrison Barnes more? I think he should.
3. How long is this second?
That's an awfully long 1 second ?pic.twitter.com/c6sWai6ko6

4. Anthony Davis
AD's trajectory in terms of statistics went a step back last year but he is still awfully Read More
Five-game slate Saturday December 19th makes for an interesting Daily Fantasy Basketball night.
Chris Paul, PG ($7,800)
CP3 at THAT price? It's a no-brainer, and I don't care whoever the Los Angeles Clippers is slated to play against. It happens to be the Houston Rockets, who is third worst in the league in stopping opposing point guards.
Carmelo Anthony, SF ($8,300)
'Melo's daily fantasy point production is sort of up and down but you have got to like what's going on here. The New Read More
NBA Player Tracking statistics provides a whole new dimension for stat lovers to delve in. According to the official website, "Player Tracking is the latest example of how technology and statistics are changing the way we understand the game of basketball."
How did they do it?
"Using six cameras installed in the catwalks of every NBA arena, SportVU software tracks the movements of every player on the court and the basketball 25 times per second. The data collected provides a plethora of innovative Read More
The frantic excitement that came along with the trade deadline has passed and now comes the frenzy we all know as FREE AGENCY. Well yeah, it's not quite July 1 yet, but it certainly pays to look closely in the future. (More so if you're a fan of teams that depends largely on free agency to reverse their fortunes.)One thing I'd like to say is there are many more factors coming into play this summer. The salary cap will rise to about 66 million in 2016 due to the explosion of new TV deals and more Read More
