How TO Pull Off The Perfect Fantasy Basketball Draft (Points)

I'll be the very first one to admit that there is no such thing as a perfect draft unless you're competing with six year olds. But relatively speaking, you can pretty much nail a fantasy basketball draft if you come prepared. and has a clear goal in mind.  The league scoring also matters and for this article, let's hypothetically consider how to complete the (near) perfect standard points league draft.  In a points league, the general rule is go for high-efficiency bigs (high FG% ) over high-volume, Read More

Conference Finals Predictions and Best Value Picks For Game 1

Here comes the Conference Finals people and while I was wrong in ONE of my predictions, that doesn't-- in any way, shape, or form-- stop me from making more. Who Wins The West? Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports I know all the experts like Portland here but truth be told, throw the stats out of the window, the Warriors are a level up as a team than the Blazers. That's how it is. I know they have split the series and that Dame has had a phenomenal post-season plus he plays great every time Read More

NBA Playoffs Predictions Round 2: Celtics Should Not Fear The Deer

Well, my Round 1 predictions are pretty much spot on except for the Thunder-Blazers series where everyone, including me, picked OKC to win. My reason was that Jusuf Nurkic is too big a piece to lose in the playoffs and Enes Kanter is light years away defensively compared to Nurk. However, I did not know Damian Lillard can do this. Or this. In Portland's case, I have never been happier to be proven wrong. OK, so let's move to the next round and let's see what's going on. Here are my NBA Playoffs Read More

These 7 Young Guys Should Be Fantasy Basketball Keepers For Next Season

Many of us already have Golden State as three-peat champions at the start of the season (although the East's Milwaukee, Toronto, and Boston begs to disagree) and already looking forward to 2019-20. In fantasy basketball, it's normal to look ahead, especially in keeper leagues. Now is the time to sift through and investigate who you have and determine whether they are worth a keeper spot in your roster. If you have any of these 7 guys all under 24 yrs of age, though, be sure you have them as fantasy Read More

5 Best Power Forwards For Fantasy Basketball

As basketball evolved into more of a positionless game, the line between forwards, guards, and centers has blurred. The same can be said of the power forward position. From bruisers and bangers, the modern power forward is expected to space the floor, bring the ball up if needed, and basically do everything. We know that many of the top centers and small forwards are also eligible for the "4" but since we want to rank players uniquely for every position, we arrived with this. Here are the 5 best Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats of the Day– Dec. 6, 2018

1.) The Spurs defense sucks.

San Antonio is ranked 29th in the league on defensive rating, easily the worst in the Gregg Popovich era.
2.) Speaking of the Spurs...
They are currently the second-worst team in the West (11-14), only above Phoenix.
3.) Is Nikola Jokic the BEST PASSER (not the best passing big man) in the game?
The Serbian big is averaging 7.8 assists a game, good for ninth in the league. However, he is averaging less than 30 minutes of playing time and has assisted on 38.4% Read More

Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS– Nov. 21, 2018

Players To Own
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers

LBJ always shows up on big games and I'd count this one as such because it will be the first time he'll return to Cleveland wearing a Lakers uniform. His return to Miami saw him produce a season-high 51 and while I don't expect that scoring output this time around, I also don't think he'll be a disappointment in his return home.
Marc Gasol, C, Memphis Grizzlies

Gasol has begun to hit his groove the last two games, producing 21.5 points, Read More

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Tuesday– Nov. 6, 2018

Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF/PF, Milwaukee Bucks

Probably the easiest decision that you'll make and the best one as well. Greek Freak has just recorded a triple-double and shows no signs of slowing down.

The top choices this Tuesday boil down to Giannis, Damian Lillard, John Wall, and Kemba Walker but Antetokounmpo is fantasy basketball's surest thing right now with averages of 26.1 points, 13.9 rebounds, 5.9 assists, a steal, and 1.4 blocks. If he could just cut down on the 5 turnovers a night, Read More

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Wednesday– October 17, 2018

Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF, Milwaukee Bucks

First off, you need someone that you can never go wrong with. You have lots of options including reigning MVP James Harden and Anthony Davis. Giannis, though, should be taking this season a little bit personally.

(As some sort of comparison, Freak had 37 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals with outstanding efficiency on his first game last year. Harden had 27 points, 6 rebounds, 11 assists, 1 steal, 3 treys; AD had 33 points, 18 rebounds, 1 Read More

NBA DFS Players to Target – 3/9/18

Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL ($11,800)

Giannis has been a beast so far in March, eclipsing 50 FP in 3 of his last 4 games. He gets the Knicks tonight who are in full tank mode and Giannis should have open lanes to the hoop all night. Be sure to target tanking teams like the Suns, Bulls, Knicks and Kings for the rest of the season.

Isaiah Thomas, PG, LAL ($6,700)

Thomas’ demotion to the second unit has driven his DFS price down. He had 13 points and 9 assists on Wednesday, and more Read More
