Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 20, 2020

Last time I was able to publish my picks was for Jan. 17 with mixed results (mostly great).  Ja Morant and DeMar Derozan were really superb statistically with the latter racking up 25-9-9 plus two steals.

But back to my picks: Josh Hart and Nicollo Melli were all more than solid especially Melli, who finished with 20 points, three rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Hart was not bad (11-6-2 with a block) but the biggest fantasy asset for New Orleans was Jahlil Okafor (25 and 14 with Read More

5 Random fantasy basketball takes during the preseason

1.) Ja Morant is for real. I know we shouldn't look too much into preseason but if it's portent of things to come, this guy Ja Morant is going to be elite. Morant may not keep up his efficient shooting but he can slice and dice defenses with the best of them. In fact, he has a total of 17 assists in over 38 minutes of preseason playing time and only four total turnovers. That's a ridiculous 4.25 assist to TO ratio according to NBA Stats.  Expecting a complete game from the get-go may not be realistic Read More
