NBA MVP Power Rankings – Dec. 14, 2017

1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg) The third overall pick in the 2009 draft continues to impress as his team maintains a one game lead over the Warriors for the #1 seed in the West. He’s one of the most gifted scorers in recent memory, and is a good bet to average over 30 ppg for the season, something only KD and Steph Curry have done in the past 8 years. This year, his stellar play is actually turning into more wins and the Rockets look like a legit threat to the Warriors. Rumors have been Read More

NBA MVP Power Rankings – The Contenders

Let’s take a look at the early contenders for MVP. Feel free to comment with your top 3 and let’s start a discussion. Personally, I define MVP as the player who has or is having the best season. We all know LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world, but he doesn’t always put together a better season than everybody else. I also don’t like the argument for MVP being guided by the idea of “well if you took him off the team, how bad would they be performing?” In my opinion, Read More

Players to Target in DFS Basketball on Nov. 7 – 2017

Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL ($10,800) You don’t need me to tell you that Giannis is having a breakout season, and that he’s an incredible pick for DFS. His cost ($10,800) is the highest of the night, but I think he’s worth it and here’s why: He’s hot right now, coming off 29 points (13-27 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 4 rebounds, 4 blocks, and 3 assists on Friday. He’s had a lot of rest over the long weekend and he’ll be ready to go. He’s playing the Cavs tonight. As I mentioned Read More

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks– Oct. 23, 2017

The Studs Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks ($10,900) The Greek Freak is on a mission, period. No explanation needed on this one. Pick him up and be ready to roll. Ben Simmons, PG/SF, Philadelphia 76ers ($7,700) Ben Simmons is doing his best Giannis impression right now and that's good news for fantasy owners. Simmons has just the right price to complement Antetokounmpo's high-end salary and has a high floor given his penchant to contribute across the board (except 3's). The Pistons Read More

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. Of course, I could be wrong and the possibility that Giannis will go ballistic against Portland after a loss to LeBron James and the Cavs but I favor James Harden (without CP3) at home against Dallas or Blake Griffin against Phoenix. 2. Elfrid Payton (PG, Orland Magic) and Dennis Smith Read More

NBA DFS Best Value Picks– October 18, 2017

The Studs Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks ($10,300) The "Greek Freak" is in the conversation of being the best basketball fantasy player right now, so why not? Plus, the Bucks are going to catch Boston on the second night of a back to back. Needless to say, things are going to be looking real good for owners who'll spend big money on Giannis. Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Pistons ($7,600) For some reason, nobody is talking big about Andre Drummond in fantasy circles. His ADP Read More
