Who To Pick And Avoid For NBA DFS Saturday-- March 2, 2019
Who To Pick
Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder
Russ is still doing Westbrook things and now that PG is sidelined ahead of Saturday's matchup with San Antonio, look for Westbrook's usage to skyrocket. He had a 24-assist game this season versus the Spurs so he has proven he can bring his A-game against this team.
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Golden State Warriors
Cousins is a favorite of mine because he can pile up fantasy points in a Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Thursday-- Feb. 28, 2019
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Golden State Warriors
Boogie did not play versus Miami to rest but has been playing really well lately. He had four consecutive double-doubles culminating in a 24-11-3 performance with a steal and three blocks in Charlotte. He is beginning to show the potential to cough up 50 FP nights so I'm scooping him up before his salary gets really high.
Donovan Mitchell, SG, Utah Jazz
Spyda has been picking up Read More
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

I’ve been a big fan of the new DFS format called “Pick’Em”. In this style, you select players from different tiers. I like it because it narrows down the decision-making from dozens of players with various dollar values, to groups of similarly-skilled players. It also allows you the freedom to take multiple players from the same position, and removes the headache of trying to get your dollar values to stay within the budget. I’ll go through the first few tiers in detail, and then offer Read More

Want something better? What about Mike Conley's 699 games and 0 (ZERO!) techs?
DeMarcus Cousins played in 483 games and has 111 technical fouls called his way. Felt like it was way more than that.

5 Players To Avoid In NBA DFS-- March 29, 2017
1. DeMarcus Cousins, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans ($9,600) vs Mavericks
Both DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis average over 50 fantasy points in the past 10 days. Boogie, however, is dealing with every issue known to a basketball player, namely foul trouble and a sprained ankle. He is doubtful on Wednesday's tiff vs Dallas so unless you can make sure just before tip-off if the Pels will give Cousins a go, that salary should go to someone else.

NBA DFS Basketball Best Value Picks-- Dec. 28, 2016
DeMarcus Cousins, PF, Sacramento Kings ($11,400)
The price tag is heavy and so is the production. Boogie is averaging 52.5 fantasy points in the last six games and the last time he faced Portland, he had one blown-off mouthpiece, one angry interview, and 83.5 fantasy points. Go figure.
C.J. McCollum, PG/SG, Portland Trail Blazers $(7,600)
The Blazers are already without Damian Lillard so they need every ounce of CJ's production Read More
After selecting our SIX Eastern Conference All-Stars, it's time to do it out West. Here are your 2016 Western Conference Fantasy All-Stars, by traditional position:
PG: Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors
As far as statistics is concerned, the 2015 NBA MVP is head and shoulders above the rest. He will carry your team single-handedly in multiple categories, namely scoring (30.1 PPG), 3PM (4.9), FT% (91.1% on almost SIX attempts), and even contributes on other stuff like rebounds (5.4), assists Read More
