It will be a very tricky situation with Giannis Antetokounmpo for Game 5, but if he's not good to go, a couple of Bucks are definite go-to's. That includes Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, and Eric Bledsoe. Middleton is a lock to go for 40 FP and I think Bledsoe should also play more minutes and more usage rate if Giannis indeed sits out.
If you don't want to play the Bucks, Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo have been pretty much unstoppable this series. Dragic is averaging 20 points, five rebounds, and Read More
Four playoff games, for Game 3s will be on hand on Saturday afternoon, so who should be at the top of your priority list? Well, the Rockets are in no hurry to bring Russell Westbrook back after leading the Thunder, 2-0, so James Harden almost has a 100% chance to get his 50 FP. On the other hand, Oklahoma City should be playing with desperation so I think it's a good idea to have Chris Paul or Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
The ones that I am going to avoid like the plague would be Jusuf Nurkic and CJ Read More
I hope you did your diligence last March 9 and checked the availability of your guys. Turns out the Bucks gave this game away by sitting out four of their five starters and one of their most dynamic players coming off that bench, including three in my suggestions. That said, all of the picks I gave other than the grounded Bucks did absolutely well.
Outside of Eric Bledsoe, I did suggest the starting Hornets backcourt and they were awesome, helped by a double-overtime game and playing another team Read More
It was two days ago where I last had the BEST VALUE PICKS and I pretty much got everything right except for De'Andre Hunter's pedestrian performance. However, his fantasy points that night where just on his average so I should not complain much.
Suggested Aaron Gordon and even though he had 15-10-4 plus extras, it could have easily been around 45 FP if not for the blowout.
Bam Adebayo had a single-digit points output but made up for it by stuffing the stat sheet. The first-time All-Star had 12 Read More
It was one of those strange nights in daily fantasy basketball. It really was strange when two of the best six performances of the night came from OG Anunoby and Shake Milton. Kristaps Porzingis' 5-block, 30-point, 13-rebound is up there with LeBron James' and Nikola Jokic' triple-doubles, and Bradley Beal's 34-2-8 and 5 steals in the vicinity.
Out of the six, Beal and Milton were on my list although I managed to somehow mess up another stud pick by suggesting Brandon Ingram over Zion Williamson. Read More
We got a 10-game Tuesday night in our heads and you all know what that means: It's time to go bargain hunting!
Here are some of the best bargains for NBA DFS Tuesday:
Jordan Clarkson, PG, Cleveland Cavaliers
20.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 steals, and a steal over the past three games? JC is solidifying his role as an offensive sparkplug off the bench and he is also playing at least 32 minutes in each of these games.
Taurean Prince, SF, Atlanta Hawks
Four solid games out the last six, Read More
It's a seven-game Friday night and we got lots of bargain options for NBA DFS Friday.
Fred VanVleet, PG, Toronto Raptors
VanVleet is back and hasn't missed a beat. His presence also lowers the impact of Kyle Lowry's injury and allows their All-Star to rest up until the real battle begins.
In three games since his re-entry into the Raptors lineup, FVV is averaging 17.7 points, 7.3 assists, and a steal per game. What's more important is he is playing 33 minutes a night on average, which gives Read More
Players To Build Around:
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
There is no timetable yet for the return of Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony which means PG is going to be busy if both wouldn't be able to go. Regardless, George has been ultra-hot lately, averaging 33.3 points, 5 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 3.7 steals, 0.7 blocks and a total of 16 treys in the last three games.
Jeff Teague, PG, Minnesota Timberwolves
Teague is not playing the best basketball of his career but in the last 3 games, he is actually Read More
NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- March 19, 2017
DeMar Derozan, SG, Toronto Raptors ($7,700)
DeMar Derozan has a pretty mediocre stat line the past six games averaging "only" 34.5 points. He is still the focal point of the Raptors offense. though, and against a less-than-impressive Pacers defense, Derozan could break out and hit the 50's once again.
Goran Dragic, PG, Miami Heat ($7,600)
The Dragon has hit the high 40's in three of the past four and draws another favorable matchup against Read More
Draymond Green, PF/C, Golden State Warriors ($7,500)
Draymond had a monster statistical night against Memphis which, I think, will never be repeated in a while. Green had 12 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 STEALS, and 5 blocks. Golden State will be in Oklahoma City Saturday night and we just hope this rivalry game will bring out the best once again in the Michigan State alum. Zaza Pachulia won't likely be around against the Thunder, so he truly has a chance.
Goran Dragic, PG, Miami Heat Read More
