NBA DFS Pick’Em Strategy – Nov. 29th

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

NBA DFS Fantasy Basketball Best Value Picks– Nov. 20, 2017

The Studs Damian Lillard, PG, Portland Trail Blazers ($8,300) Dame has been off with his shot lately and is facing a stout defensive team in Memphis. That doesn't mean you shouldn't consider him. Perennial All-Stars like Lillard go off at the slightest hints and his salary is the lowest since the start of November. Plus, the Grizzlies won't be playing Mike Conley because of an Achilles issue so Lillard has one less problem there. Jimmy Butler, SG, Minnesota Timberwolves ($7,500) Butler has 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

NBA Fantasy Basketball Performers Of The Night– March 18, 2017

From James Harden to Denzel Valentine, here are the top fantasy basketball performers from March 18, 2017: The Studs 1. James Harden, PG, Houston Rockets My vote for MVP goes to this guy although I don't believe the Rockets could make it any farther than Round 2, The Beard came up with a masterpiece yet again: 40 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, and three triples. That's his second consecutive 40-point triple-doubles although it came with eight turnovers. But you have to take the Read More

Fantasy Winners And Losers In The Derrick Rose Trade

In case you missed it, Phil Jackson engineered another highway robbery of a trade Wednesday, acquiring Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls "for two scratch and sniff lotto tickets, one of Shawn Kemp's nine kids & a bootleg copy of Rihanna's CD," that is if you're paying attention to Gilbert Arenas. Well, it's either the Zen Master pulled the wool over the Bulls' brass or the other way around, Chicago's FO knowing D-Rose has one too many under-the-knife sessions that could make a metal detector Read More

2016 Eastern Conference Fantasy All-Stars

Now that the NBA has announced their All-Star starters (no true power forwards and centers on both lineups, by the way), we got to follow suit but with some minor differences than the celebrated February classic. Instead of three "Frontcourt" players, we will be selecting the best 5 from each traditional position and one Utility guy. Here are your 2016 Eastern Conference All-Stars: PG: Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors In the point guard position, you can either choose Lowry or Washington Wizard's Read More

January 16, 2016– Fascinating NBA Stats Of The Day

1. Day of triple-doubles. Owners of Hassan Whiteside, Russell Westbrook, and Marcus Smart were having a field day last night. All three of them recorded triple doubles, the most impressive one on Whiteside. The Miami Heat big man stepped up without Dwyane Wade, tallying 19 points, 17 rebounds, and a crazy 11 blocks! Westrbook and Smart were not so bad, dropping almost the same numbers. The Thunder dynamo had 12 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists while Smart had 10 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice March 28

Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice March 28 It's only five games but there are a lot of golden opportunities to win if you look these players' way this Saturday. The Studs LaMarcus Aldridge, PF ($8,700) LA has been somewhat inconsistent the past four games--scoring in the 40's and 50's sandwiched by games of the 20 and 30-point variety. So how ill Saturday night go? There's no way to tell but the match-up suggests it could probably be the former. In the two rather poor games, Aldridge locked horns Read More

Famished Five: Most Underrated NBA Players In Each Position

I have always found myself rooting for the underdog. Ever since I was 7, when I decided to watch hoops rather than X-Men or Power Rangers, my heart was with the underrated ones. Of course, I didn't mean I cheered for the worst team, but my favorite player is not always the best one. While everybody goes all crazy for the high-flying, acrobatic antics that Michael Jordan always displayed, I applauded the Hersey Hawkins, the Jeff Hornaceks, the Antoine Carrs, and the Rex Chapmans of the world.
