January 4th DraftKings Lineup.

I hope everyone had a chance to use the core lineup I gave on Monday. DeRozan had a career night and the other 4 had point totals well above their FPPG average. Nurkic and Valentine were both under 5% owned. Tonight is only a 2 game slate, my wheelhouse is 5-9 games in a night, but I was able to create a lineup that looked decent. My 8 player team broke down to 4 different FPPG tiers; 2 in the 40s, 2 in the 30s, 2 in the 20s and 2 in the 10s. The 40s- Durant 48.8, Paul 42.2 I was Read More

The Milwaukee Bucks did not capitalize on its surprisingly impressive 2014-15 season and ended up on the outside of the Eastern Conference looking in. However, from a fantasy basketball perspective, they are a potential gold mine especially if Jason Kidd finds a way to fit the puzzle pieces together.

Fantasy Basketball Team Preview: Atlanta Hawks

Overview: Last season was a historic one for the Atlanta Hawks that practically nobody in the NBA circles right now believes they can do it one more time. A franchise-best record 60-22 was set, they were the first team to go undefeated for a whole calendar month (17-0 in January 2015), and could have shoot down for the best overall record in the NBA if not for Mike Budenholzer being under the Popovich influence.
