Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 4, 2020

I got back on track on Feb. 3 with really solid picks from top to bottom.  I suggested Deandre Ayton or Nikola Vucevic and while both came through, Ayton basically feasted in the paint with 25-17-5 with two blocks. Vucevic had 22-7-5 but he had to "contend" with Aaron Gordon's double-double, which explains why he didn't have to do more.

Ilyasova averaged almost 15 points in 53 games for the Sixers last season while contributing almost six rebounds and two assists. Ilyasova is also hitting over 1 trey a game over the course of his career and the combined 1.1 steals+blocks Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice Feb. 25

The news on Derrick Rose going under the knife on the same knee he injured in 2013 was surely a big blow to the Chicago Bulls. The team's official release said an MRI scan revealed a torn meniscus and that no timetable was set in his return.
Again.
Rose's knee injury will open a lot of opportunities for a couple other Bulls. Joakim Noah, for instance, could see a lot more touches as a facilitator at the center spot. In the 2013-14 season playing without the 2011 MVP, Noah dished a ridiculous 5.4 Read More
