NBA DFS Pick’Em Strategy on Nov. 16 – 2017

Only 2 games to pick from tonight, but 3 of the 4 teams are loaded with fantasy talent. I took Joel Embiid in my DFS draft last night and he scored 90+ points. Let’s see if we can pick out some similar gems for tonight’s matchups. Tier 1: Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving My Choice: Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS Boston’s defense is legit; they have the 2nd best defensive rating relative to league average since 1976. Jump shooters are just 16 for 51 from behind the three-point line against Read More

Pick’Em DFS NBA Strategy for Nov. 8 – 2017

  Tier 1 Steph Curry, PG, GSW Talk about a tough choice. This tier makes us choose between Kevin Durant, Karl-Anthony Towns, Kyrie Irving and Curry. You really can’t lose here, but I like Steph Curry’s chances of taking advantage of the Wolves’ guards tonight. Minnesota ranks 29th against opposing point guards, and Curry is due for a big game. Steph is averaging just 19.7 PPG in November, but I think Minnesota’s focus will be on stopping Durant and Draymond Green from driving to Read More

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks– Dec. 17, 2016

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks-- Dec. 17, 2016 Point Guards Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix Suns ($7,700) Bled is one of the higher-priced studs in the position you must keep an eye on.

In comparison, Steph Curry only had a 40-FP average in the past seven games and he is $800 more expensive. Reggie Jackson, Detroit Pistons ($5,400) Jackson saw his minute Read More

March 9, 2016– DFS Basketball Best Value Picks

March 9, 2016-- DFS Basketball Best Value Picks Nine games and here we are: The Studs Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF ($8,700) I don't want to put The Greek Freak in here because I have to write his whole name down, but he's probably the best SF in fantasy for the last couple of weeks. In the past 10 games, Giannis had 4 games where he had at least 65.75 fantasy points. He had three triple-doubles during that time and flirted with it for a couple times more. Kemba Walker, PG ($8,300) Kemba has been Read More

Player injuries are a part of NBA life, so every time a teammate goes down and your number is called, being ready is the least and the most you can do.

Here are some 5 players who benefit from injuries to their teammates: Josh Smith/Paul Pierce, Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin went down with a quad injury in the 94-84 Christmas Read More

Fantasy Basketball Team Preview: Phoenix Suns

Overview: What's not to like about the Phoenix Suns? They're full of solid rotation players worthy of a fantasy roster on anybody's team. Though they lack a true superstar, Phoenix does things by committee which is a 'glass half full, glass half empty' type of thing depending on who's looking. If I have it my way, I think the pros does outweigh the cons and it's the reason why this team is at least 7-deep when it comes to roster-worthy hoopsters. Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight looks like Read More
