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

Deadline Trades and Which Players Benefit

Isaiah Thomas, PG, LAL I think the trade will benefit Isaiah Thomas because he won’t be under LeBron‘s shadow or in all that drama that he experienced in Cleveland. Isaiah Thomas did not like the way the team played defense and apparently was unhappy with in game adjustments by Tyronn Lue and the lack of practice time he needed to get back from his injury. I think a fresh start with the Lakers, and an opportunity to be one of the veteran stars will really help his fantasy value. I don’t 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

Fantasy Outlook Of 6 NBA Stars Changing Addresses

The 2017-18 offseason is one of the craziest and wildest offseasons in recent memory. As of September 26, at least SIX All-Stars have changed addresses including Chris Paul, Kyrie Irving, Paul George, and just recently, Carmelo Anthony. Irving was a top-20 fantasy basketball player last year as well as George, while Melo is still a highly serviceable scorer who could be in danger of being criminally underrated inside fantasy circles. CP3 is joining 2017 MVP runner-up James Harden in Houston and Read More

January 27, 2016– DFS Basketball Best Value Picks

January 27, 2016-- DFS Basketball Best Value Picks The Studs Karl-Anthony Towns, C ($7,000) The 2015 No. 1 overall pick is on fire lately, averaging 48. 25 fantasy points over the last four games.

Jan. 17, 2016– NBA Stats Of The Day Worthy Of A Second Look

1. Isaiah Thomas best point guard in the East and best contract of all NBA? One Redditor noted Isaiah Thomas' production relative to his contract. The Boston Celtics point guard is tops in all Eastern Conference in points per game, second in assists, but makes only half as much as Kyle Lowry and a third as much as John Wall. Something tells me a MAX CONTRACT is in the works once this ridiculous contract is over. 2. James Harden gets to the line almost at will. The Beard has shot 2,693 FT attempts Read More
