Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 29, 2020

It's a rare occurrence for me to botch a stud suggestion but I did last time with Kawhi Leonard. The reasoning behind the selection is Leonard's previous performances and he may need to exert more against a better opponent. Turns out, the Clippers did not need much from Kawhi on this one by blowing out Denver, 130-103, with Leonard playing only 25 minutes. That said, the Aaron Gordon suggestion was an absolute spot-on. AG had a triple double against the Wolves-- 17 points, 11 rebounds, and 12 assists-- Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 21, 2020

I hope you logged early to check out the injury news before the Nets-Sixers game and made the necessary adjustment. Well, without Ben Simmons, that pretty much made Joel Embiid a must-roster and he did not disappoint. Here's a recap of my picks for Feb. 20. Joel, Joel, Joel. Embiid took advantage of Simmons absence and brutalized Brooklyn. JoJo finished with 39 points, 16 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks. Same thing with Bam Adebayo. History repeated itself with Bam torching the Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 11, 2020

There were hits and a miss from the Feb. 10, 2020 suggestions but I guess it's not enough to halt my streak.  From up top, I gave you Nikola Vucevic and Kristaps Porzingis and they did what they had to as pillars for your fake teams. Vucevic had 24-9-9 and a block, and that fact that he did not commit a single turnover maximized his counting stats. KP, on the other hand, had 28 points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal, and two blocks. Malcolm Brogdon was underwhelming this time as he had his Read More

5 Interesting Numbers In The Celtics-Cavs ECF Game 5

1. Jayson Tatum!
Tatum becomes the first rookie since Jack Sikma (in 1978) to score 300+ points in a postseason. He now has nine 20+ point games in the playoffs, trailing only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time rookie list. The crazy thing is if the Celtics go on to the NBA Finals, he will likely be the runaway leader in that category even before that series ends.

If this kid ain't the real deal, I don't know who is!

2. More Celtics...
The Boston Celtics is the first team with 10 consecutive Read More

NBA Rookie Power Rankings

With 4 weeks of the NBA season in the books, we’ve had enough of a sample size to take stock of the rookies so far this year. Ranking rookies is always tough since some are thrust into starting roles, while others are able to ease into things off the bench. Some are on contenders, surrounded by stars, and others are not. Here’s a reminder of the top 5 picks from this year’s draft:

76ers: Markelle Fultz (G) - Washington
Lakers: Lonzo Ball (G) - UCLA
Celtics: Jayson Tatum (F) - Read More

Pick’Em DFS NBA Strategy for Nov. 8 – 2017

 
Tier 1
Steph Curry, PG, GSW

Talk about a tough choice. This tier makes us choose between Kevin Durant, Karl-Anthony Towns, Kyrie Irving and Curry. You really can’t lose here, but I like Steph Curry’s chances of taking advantage of the Wolves’ guards tonight. Minnesota ranks 29th against opposing point guards, and Curry is due for a big game. Steph is averaging just 19.7 PPG in November, but I think Minnesota’s focus will be on stopping Durant and Draymond Green from driving to Read More
