Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
The reason why PG should be on everyone's DFS roster is that Russell Westbrook will be serving his one-game suspension Monday night. He is averaging 30 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.7 steals over his last three. Expect him to be more aggressive as the Thunder's primary scorer and facilitator for the night.
Devin Booker, SG, Phoenix Suns
Speaking of being a primary scorer and facilitator for the team, Booker has done that and more for the Read More
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
Who To Own
Anthony Davis, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans
Davis' salary can be crippling but with a nine-game slate, it's easier to find production at a discount. I mean, how can you go wrong on picking someone who dropped over 60 fantasy points after leaving the pre-game warmups to vomit? The Pelicans will be playing Sacramento, another ultra fast-paced team, making this a very fantasy-friendly matchup.
Lou Williams, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Read More
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
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
Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix Suns ($7,700)
Bled is one of the higher-priced studs in the position you must keep an eye on. Notwithstanding the dud against San Antonio, Bledsoe has recorded four 50-FP games in the last six, averaging 41.6 fantasy points during that span. 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
An NBA rookie's life is difficult but once figured out, it could be a gateway for more opportunities and eventually, success. Aside from Karl-Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingis who turned out to be formidable sources since Day 1, these 5 sophomores have " FANTASY SUPERSTAR" written all over them. Will they take the next step this season? Only time can tell but we sure hope they do.
1. Justise Winslow, SF, Miami Heat
Winslow will step into a bigger role in Miami this season with the departure Read More
Fantasy basketball is equal parts exact numerical science and equal parts alchemy. Steph Curry, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, and a dozen or so options in the first round, they are the very definition of exact science. This one we're about to delve into, this is alchemy.
I can be wrong, you can be wrong, but most the most important and interesting part of it all, there's nothing more fun than tinkering on the unknown. Here are the 5 potential fantasy breakout performers for the 2016-17 season:

March 9, 2016-- DFS Basketball Best Value Picks
Nine games and here we are:
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
