1.) Michael Carter-Williams, PG, Orlando Magic
Yahoo: $14; DrafftKings: $5,500; FanDuel: $4,500
MCW has not only cracked the rotation but is the primary PG option for a decimated Magic team. He has not always been a good shooter and sometimes his shot selection is suspect, but he fills up the stat sheet every now and then. Case on point: Even with an atrocious 2-for-13 shooting vs the Warriors, he contributed four rebounds, five assists, a steal, and two blocks.
2.) Cam Reddish, SG/SF, Atlanta Read More
Friday has 10 games for us which means bargains are aplenty. But before we splurge, let's review for a moment what happened with my last bargain suggestions:
Omari Spellman was OK but not great: 11 points, five rebounds, an assist, and a block in 17 minutes. Three to five more minutes of playing time and the guy could easily have 25, which is a borderline great number for his salary.
Enes Kanter literally fizzled and has not gotten over 23 FP in the last three games, Jan. 8th was his worst outing Read More
1.) Darius Garland, PG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Garland and the Cavs are on the second game of a back-to-back but that should not matter. The 2019 fifth overall pick has finally started to put it together--he is averaging 16 points, 2.2 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 1.3 steals over the past four games. That was capped by a 20-point, seven-assist performance vs OKC.
2.) Jarrett Culver, PG/SG, Minnesota Timberwolves
Culver went back to his mediocre ways in the blowout win over Golden State but his three-game Read More
Finally! After months of waiting, probably the most exciting NBA season in recent memory comes around. NBA Tipoff 2019 starts with a two-game slate featuring New Orleans and Toronto and the Los Angeles heavyweights, the Lakers and Clippers.
Who will provide the best value come Tuesday? Here are some players to consider:
Anthony Davis, PF/C, Lakers ($10,200)
Choosing who to get for your "max" money is relatively easy and in this two-game slate, you can choose among Anthony Davis, LeBron Read More
I'll be the very first one to admit that there is no such thing as a perfect draft unless you're competing with six year olds. But relatively speaking, you can pretty much nail a fantasy basketball draft if you come prepared. and has a clear goal in mind.
The league scoring also matters and for this article, let's hypothetically consider how to complete the (near) perfect standard points league draft.
In a points league, the general rule is go for high-efficiency bigs (high FG% ) over high-volume, Read More
1.) Trae Young-- The 30-foot Assassin
Shooting threes are all the rage these days but there are some who takes it to another level. One of these is Trae Young, who leads the league in field goals made from at least 30 feet out. The percentages? 24 out of 67 for 35.8%. Nobody else has more than 20.
2.) Rookie Signature Shoes
There have only been NINE rookies with signature shoes so far and that list includes Hakeem Olujawon, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Grant Hill, Jerry Stackhouse, Read More
It's bargain-hunting time on NBA DFS Tuesday, March 19, 2019.
JaVale McGee, C, Los Angeles Lakers
McGee's minutes is up-and-down in the last four, but generally, he is playing well. He is averaging 12.8 points, 10 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 2 blocks per game over the same stretch.
Alex Caruso, PG/SG, Los Angeles Lakers
Lack of backcourt depth catapulted Caruso to playing major minutes and he has not disappointed. Caruso has racked up defensive stats as of late averaging 3.5 steals and Read More
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers
James has to get it going if he wants the Lakers to make the playoffs and while he has relatively played well since his return, he needs to up his play another level. That said, there's no better way than lighting up a mediocre team like the Hawks.
Klay Thompson, SG, Golden State Warriors
KT has been pretty effective lately, averaging 27 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.3 blocks over his past four. The two previous games Read More
Building Blocks For NBA DFS Wednesday-- Oct. 24, 2018
Kyle Kuzma, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers are playing with a third-ranked pace in the league (107.6 according to Basketball Reference) making them a fantasy gold mine. Of course, if you can afford LeBron James you can always go that route but after delivering a 37-point, 8-rebound gem against San Antonio on his first start of the season, Kuzma may break out again against the Suns. He looks like a natural fit with James and with Brandon Read More
