Constructing a DFS lineup for a three-game slate is tricky but a simple recipe is to go top-heavy and swing for a couple of punt plays.
Here are some value building blocks for NBA DFS Tuesday, November 13, 2018.
James Harden, SG, Houston Rockets
Is the 40-7-9 line from Nov. 11 a sign of things to come from the reigning MVP? Hopefully, because we certainly haven't seen the jaw-dropping stat lines we are accustomed to seeing from the Beard. Denver has surprisingly among the top defensive teams Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Saturday:
James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets
I'm trying to be a contrarian here with the Harden pick and Houston unexpectedly struggling on offense. The Beard still put up elite numbers (26.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.6 steals) but not the jaw-dropping lines we see from him in seasons past.
What does that mean? That means he is due for an explosive showing and it could come at the expense of the Spurs, who is 23rd in the league when it comes to Read More
3 Weird Stats And Numbers Early In The 2018-19 NBA Season
1.) Denver's Defense
No one sees the Denver Nuggets as a mauling defensive juggernaut, but 11 games into the season, they are sitting in the upper echelon of the league when it comes to stopping opponents.
According to NBAstats.com, the Nuggets just sit behind the Boston Celtics in defensive rating (101.6) while ranking inside the top 10 in defensive rebounding percentage (4th), steals (4th), opponents' field goals made (4th), opponents' Read More
A little over a month ago, here’s how my Power Rankings stacked up:
1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg)
1B) LeBron James, SF, CLE (28.2 ppg)
3) Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS (24 ppg)
4) Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL (29.9)
A LOT has changed in a month so let’s get to some updated rankings
Kevin Durant, SF, GSW, 26.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.2 assists
Durant has easily been the most consistent player in the league this year. We’re used to him dropping 26+ points Read More

James Harden, PG, HOU ($15,500)
Harden has struggled (compared to his high standards), failing to score at or above his average FPPG in his last 4 games. His salary is slightly reflective of this, given that he’s only the 5th most expensive player. He’s only scored more than 30 points once in his last 5 games, and with the Thunder and Westbrook fighting for Read More
NBA All-Star Voting 2018 presented by Verizon will tip off with an early voting period exclusively on the NBA App and NBA.com beginning Thursday, Dec. 21 at 1 p.m. ET. In honor of the impending vote, lets take a look at who should make it this year. Keep in mind that this year, there will be no East V West, it has moved to a draft format. It’s clear that the All-Star game is dying since none of the players care, so the draft will at least add some life into it. Useless or not, I’ve always liked Read More
1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg)
The third overall pick in the 2009 draft continues to impress as his team maintains a one game lead over the Warriors for the #1 seed in the West. He’s one of the most gifted scorers in recent memory, and is a good bet to average over 30 ppg for the season, something only KD and Steph Curry have done in the past 8 years. This year, his stellar play is actually turning into more wins and the Rockets look like a legit threat to the Warriors. Rumors have been Read More
Tier 1 – James Harden, PG, Hou
We get to choose from James Harden, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis in tier 1, and I would take Harden here. He scored 73 fantasy points on Monday with 37 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks. Quite simply, Harden gives you the highest ceiling of any fantasy player right now. Chris Paul hasn’t had a negative effect on his fantasy output and he’s starting to heat up from 3-point range, hitting a season-high 8 of them on Monday.
Tier 2 – Read More
Let’s take a look at the early contenders for MVP. Feel free to comment with your top 3 and let’s start a discussion. Personally, I define MVP as the player who has or is having the best season. We all know LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world, but he doesn’t always put together a better season than everybody else.
I also don’t like the argument for MVP being guided by the idea of “well if you took him off the team, how bad would they be performing?” In my opinion, Read More
