Time to go bargain-hunting again on a Friday night, starting with Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon.
Dewayne Dedmon, C, Atlanta Hawks
Dedmon combines the rare skill of creating space as a shooting center with the willingness to bang with anyone inside. He is averaging 17.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, and a steal over the past three games, all Hawks wins. He has drilled SEVEN treys during that span on 12 attempts.
Dwayne Bacon, SG, Charlotte Hornets
With Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lamb unavailable, Read More
Happy New Year everyone. The start of the 2017-18 NBA season was for me, hoping to continue the trend as the calendar rolls over into 2018. Here are some must plays for Monday night.
Elfrid Payton, $7,100
Elfrid Payton has been playing very well the past couple of games. His FPPG is 29.8, however, in the last 5 games that average is up to 40.6. He is matched up tonight against Spencer Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie has done a great job filling in for the injured D'Angelo Russell, but is a Read More
Tonight is a Ten game schedule. The more choices, the more doubt creeps in with your pick. Here are 5 picks to help get your lineup jumpstarted.
PG Jamal Murray, $5,100
Nice value pick here. Jamal Murray scored a season high 31 points the last time they played the Pelicans. Not a whole lot of defense is going to be played in this game, the Nuggets won 146-114 last game, I don't think both teams will tighten up on Defense over night.
SG. Dwyane Wade, $5,800
I am using the PG slot Read More
This is my first article for Fantasybasketball101. I will be giving lineups and draft tips on the DraftKings site. FanDuel is well represented on this site and I am a better player on DraftKings anyways so it works out nicely.
I am going to try to write an article on days that have between 5-8 games. Lineups I make in that game range are the ones I am confident in the most.

PG. Lonzo Ball, $7,100
This is technically a road game for 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
Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice April 15
Russell Westbrook, PG ($12,000)
We all know the situation here and there are two scenarios the Thunder hope goes well in their favor. One is the Spurs beating the Pelicans (out of their control) and OKC winning over the Wolves. The latter is the one they can lay their hands on.
Expect Russell Westbrook to go all demon mode on the undermanned Timberwolves like he was in 38 minutes of work against Portland. The UCLA product flirted with Read More

Reggie Jackson, PG ($8,500)
If there's a sure thing in the point guard position, it's Reggie Jackson. The former Thunder reserve is still somewhat auditioning for everybody, proving he's worth a max contract and not just a backcourt insurance. If owners do look at his fantasy numbers, Jackson might just get what he wants.
Jackson has averaged 44.6 fantasy points in the last four games and practically didn't have one extremely bad statistical Read More
Only five days to go before the season ends but like every slowpoke will say, it's better late than never. Here's your options from a six-game Saturday.
Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice April 11
Blake Griffin, PF ($8,700)
The secret to getting production this late in the season is to roster players that actually play for SOMETHING. They'd still go all out because they know one slippage could mean the difference between having homecourt advantage or starting the playoffs on the Read More
Ten games of action and off we go!
Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice April 3
John Wall, PG ($9,000)
John Wall has activated beast mode lately, dropping 54, 54.25, and 61 fantasy points lately. He settled for 31 against Philadelphia but it was a blowout win and played only 30 minutes. Can anyone guess for how much will he torment the Knicks defense tonight?
Brook Lopez, C ($8,200)
After struggling early in the season and momentarily ceasing his starting spot to Mason Plumlee, Brook Read More
