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

Best Value Picks and Bargains For NBA DFS Friday– March 15, 2019

The Studs
Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ers

After missing almost a month, Embiid returned and hasn't missed a beat. He is averaging 25 points, 15.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2 blocks over a two-game span. Embiid will once again be leaned upon more with Jimmy Butler and Ben Simmons possibly out.
DeMar DeRozan, SF, San Antonio Spurs

DeRozan has three games out of the last four with at least 48 FP and looks like in the midst of a strong run. It's not that he's scoring, which Read More

5 Best Shooting Guards For Fantasy Basketball

Traditionally speaking, shooting guard is the shallowest position in fantasy basketball. Since point guards like Steph Curry, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving do have SG eligibility in fantasy, it makes the position pool look deeper than it actually is.

In this list - 5 Best Shooting Guards For Fantasy Basketball - however, I won't include the aforementioned names (because they really are point guards who can simply score) and concentrate on players who played the SG position for the majority of Read More

Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS Friday– Dec. 7, 2018

Players To OWN:
Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, Miami Heat

Olynyk has strung up three good games in a row and with Hassan Whiteside not playing Friday against Phoenix, Olynyk should soak up most of the minutes. He has averaged 14 points, seven rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.3 steals the last three outings with probably the best one coming up against an anemic Suns defense.
Darren Collision, PG, Indiana Pacers

Most would probably pick Tyreke Evans as the most likely beneficiary of Victor Oladipo's injury, 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

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Wednesday-- Oct. 24, 2018
Kyle Kuzma, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers are playing with a third-ranked pace in the league (107.6 according to Basketball Reference) making them a fantasy gold mine. Of course, if you can afford LeBron James you can always go that route but after delivering a 37-point, 8-rebound gem against San Antonio on his first start of the season, Kuzma may break out again against the Suns. He looks like a natural fit with James and with Brandon Read More

NBA MVP Power Rankings

A little over a month ago, here’s how my Power Rankings stacked up:

1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg)

1B) LeBron James, SF, CLE (28.2 ppg)

3) Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS (24 ppg)

4) Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL (29.9)

A LOT has changed in a month so let’s get to some updated rankings

Kevin Durant, SF, GSW, 26.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.2 assists

Durant has easily been the most consistent player in the league this year. We’re used to him dropping 26+ points Read More

NBA DFS Players to Target on Jan. 11, 2018

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

NBA “PICK’EM” DFS Strategy – Nov. 1, 2017

We’ve got 8 games tonight, so there are a lot of options to choose from. Let’s try and narrow it down to the best choices in the pick’em format.

Tier 1 – Anthony Davis, PF/C, NO
In tier 1, we get to choose from Davis, Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins, and Rockets guard James Harden. Harden has had to carry the load for the Rockets with Chris Paul out, but he had a rough shooting night on Monday (8-21), and the Knicks have been surprisingly effective against opposing point guards. So Read More

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Avoid On Thursday, April 20, 2017

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Avoid On Thursday
DeMar DeRozan, SG, Toronto Raptors ($8,000)

Everything is exposed in the playoffs and unless DeMar DeRozan finds ways to expand his range or create for others, I don't think the high-scoring guard is a wise investment at $8,000. His rebounding numbers may even be just a fluke.

At this point, teammate Kyle Lowry may be a better option (though at a slightly higher price) having seen his last performance. However, if you want the bang for your Read More
