Players To Own:
Anthony Davis, C, New Orleans Pelicans
AD is in the conversation as the best fantasy player right now averaging 32 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 steals, and 3 blocks over the past three games. This affair with Charlotte has all the makings of a fantasy-friendly matchup and Davis will surely be in the forefront of this one.
Mike Conley, PG, Memphis Grizzlies
Conley is blazing hot lately with double-digit assists in three of the last four outings. But his other Read More
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.

3. Hassan Whiteside Read More
Now that the NBA has announced their All-Star starters (no true power forwards and centers on both lineups, by the way), we got to follow suit but with some minor differences than the celebrated February classic.
Instead of three "Frontcourt" players, we will be selecting the best 5 from each traditional position and one Utility guy. Here are your 2016 Eastern Conference All-Stars:
PG: Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors
In the point guard position, you can either choose Lowry or Washington Wizard's Read More
1. Day of triple-doubles.
Owners of Hassan Whiteside, Russell Westbrook, and Marcus Smart were having a field day last night. All three of them recorded triple doubles, the most impressive one on Whiteside. The Miami Heat big man stepped up without Dwyane Wade, tallying 19 points, 17 rebounds, and a crazy 11 blocks!
Westrbook and Smart were not so bad, dropping almost the same numbers. The Thunder dynamo had 12 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists while Smart had 10 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 Read More
Only five days to go before the season ends but like every slowpoke will say, it's better late than never. Here's your options from a six-game Saturday.
Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice April 11
Blake Griffin, PF ($8,700)
The secret to getting production this late in the season is to roster players that actually play for SOMETHING. They'd still go all out because they know one slippage could mean the difference between having homecourt advantage or starting the playoffs on the Read More
Rudy Gobert messed up everybody's lineup last night and by everybody, I meant me and more than a third of daily fantasy basketball junkies that spent 16% of their cap for the French center.
If you've been here long enough, you can do a lot with $8100. And for the most part in that ugly game at Staples, it was an undrafted slotman out of Kansas,with around $3000 worth of DK salary, that played like the best center on the court.
To sum it up, it was a night of disappointment.
