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

NBA DFS Players to Target and Avoid – January 26, 2018

Avoid: Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL ($11,600) He’s returning from a knee injury tonight, but I wouldn’t put him in your lineups right away. I like to give guys returning from injury a game or two to show me they’re healed, especially when their price is $11,600. Take DeMarcus Cousins, LeBron James, or one of the other high-ticket guys instead. Isaiah Thomas, PG, CLE ($6,200) I would avoid all Cleveland players not named LeBron until after the All-Star break. Thomas is tempting given all Read More

2018 All-Star Team Projections

NBA All-Star Voting 2018 presented by Verizon will tip off with an early voting period exclusively on the NBA App and NBA.com beginning Thursday, Dec. 21 at 1 p.m. ET. In honor of the impending vote, lets take a look at who should make it this year. Keep in mind that this year, there will be no East V West, it has moved to a draft format. It’s clear that the All-Star game is dying since none of the players care, so the draft will at least add some life into it. Useless or not, I’ve always liked Read More

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
