Every year we say 'It's a crazy NBA trade deadline' and this time around we actually mean it. Some trades that have taken place shook the NBA's balance of power and even though it will be difficult to feel out their fantasy outlooks, we'll try nonetheless.

Portis has had a publicized beef with Bulls coach Jim Boylen and I'm sure for him, getting out of Boylen's tutelage is a win in itself. It looks like it will also be the case inside the basketball Read More
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards ($8,100)
With John Wall on the shelf for a couple of weeks, Bradley Beal will be the focus of the Wizards' offense.

He will not be as efficient as he usually is, but since DFS hardly punishes inefficiency, Beal should be a must-start in all DFS leagues.
LaMarcus Aldridge, PF/C, San Antonio Spurs ($8,100)
LMA just finished Read More
On the Rise?

Barnes' per-36 minutes are somewhat pedestrian, only 13 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal for his career. However, that could be mainly seen Read More
