Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Monday– March 18, 2019

The Studs 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.

NBA DFS Basketball: Players To Avoid On Saturday– Oct. 21, 2017

1. Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks It's not that the Greek Freak will produce anything less than a 45-point DFS night, but I just don't like the fact that they're on the tail end of a back-to-back.

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 20

Rudy Gobert messed up everybody's lineup last night and by everybody, I meant me and more than a third of daily fantasy basketball junkies that spent 16% of their cap for the French center. If you've been here long enough, you can do a lot with $8100. And for the most part in that ugly game at Staples, it was an undrafted slotman out of Kansas,with around $3000 worth of DK salary, that played like the best center on the court.
