1. Dwyane Wade and the art of the pump fake.
Wade and pump fakes are pretty much synonymous but how good is he exactly with these weapons? Someone did the math, and they have the stats:
“Around 1,350 players, give or take, have played at least a single minute against the Miami HEAT since Wade was drafted in 2003. And he got 339 of them to jump.”
“Which means Wade got 25% of all the players he ever played against to bite.”
John Salmons was the worst offender (9 times), followed Read More
Isaiah Thomas, PG, LAL
I think the trade will benefit Isaiah Thomas because he won’t be under LeBron‘s shadow or in all that drama that he experienced in Cleveland. Isaiah Thomas did not like the way the team played defense and apparently was unhappy with in game adjustments by Tyronn Lue and the lack of practice time he needed to get back from his injury. I think a fresh start with the Lakers, and an opportunity to be one of the veteran stars will really help his fantasy value. I don’t Read More
The 2017-18 offseason is one of the craziest and wildest offseasons in recent memory. As of September 26, at least SIX All-Stars have changed addresses including Chris Paul, Kyrie Irving, Paul George, and just recently, Carmelo Anthony.
Irving was a top-20 fantasy basketball player last year as well as George, while Melo is still a highly serviceable scorer who could be in danger of being criminally underrated inside fantasy circles. CP3 is joining 2017 MVP runner-up James Harden in Houston and Read More
NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Build Around On Sunday (April 23, 2017)
Chris Paul, PG, Los Angeles Clippers ($9,800)
No brainer. Blake Griffin is out for the rest of the playoffs so the burden falls squarely on the shoulders of Chris Paul. It's not like we could ask more from CP3. He has not scored less than 47 fantasy points in the first three games and with BG gone, that production could go LeBron-esque at over $2,000 less.
DeAndre Jordan, C, Los Angeles Clippers ($7,900)
Again, with Read More

Fantasy basketball is not an exact science but the fun of it all is that you can predict (or project) pretty much how everything will go on. Until injuries and Gregg Popovich mess everything up, that is.
Kidding aside, as much as there are breakout candidates, there are also players who deserve the "bust" label. Of course, they may not actually "suck" per se, but because of reduced roles, much better teammates, etc., they probably will not be as productive as previously thought.
For example, because Read More
