Ben Simmons, PG, Philadelphia 76ers ($8,800)
The Houston-OKC tiff is intriguing with a lot of big names but if you want to spread out the wealth with the same ceiling for a huge outing, try Ben Simmons. The Aussie has just torched their would-be opponent Charlotte four days ago with 15 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, and a block. It would be nice to add more scoring and defensive stats but that should still be one heck of a stat line.
Jrue Holiday, SG, New Orleans Pelicans ($8,500)

Kristaps Porzingis, PF, NYK ($9,700)
Porzingod was hobbled by an ankle injury in early December, but he’s gotten back on track with 29, 31.8 and 55.6 FP in his last three games. Porzingis scored 30 points (10-23 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 9-10 FT), grabbed eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 38 minutes on Sunday. Although it was the Hawks, Kristaps’ numbers are impressive and tonight he gets a favorable matchup with the Lakers at home. I’d rather have him at his price than Karl-Anthony Read More
The NBA is a big, bad, cruel world. Ir simply doesn't care whether you're a top dog in high school, in college, wherever. And it certainly doesn't give a damn whether you can pull off a 1,080-degree dunk (although that will look good on SportsCenter). What ultimately matters is how you fit into a system and if you don't, then it's the other way around: Transforming your game to be more successful.
Here are 6 recent NBA players who have been there and done that.
1. J.J. Redick

1. Isaiah Thomas best point guard in the East and best contract of all NBA?
One Redditor noted Isaiah Thomas' production relative to his contract. The Boston Celtics point guard is tops in all Eastern Conference in points per game, second in assists, but makes only half as much as Kyle Lowry and a third as much as John Wall.
Something tells me a MAX CONTRACT is in the works once this ridiculous contract is over.
2. James Harden gets to the line almost at will.

Daily Fantasy Lineup Advice March 25
Thirteen games on a Thursday evening means it's time to party. Here are some guys worth a look on March 25.
DeMarcus Cousins, C ($9,700)
Call him DMC, call him Boogie, this kid is scary good. Cousins bullied Philadelphia to post 33 and 17 with three assists, four steals, and four blocks-- good for 7 and a half Fantasy Points. That's about as high as anyone can get without having a triple double!

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 8, Sunday, 7 games:
Russell Westbrook, PG ($12,000)
A bit pricey but production is like getting two persons in one: 82, 76, 95, 66, the past four.
Steph Curry, PG ($9,500)
Steph Curry, like only a handful of guys, is seemingly immune to stinkers. The NBA's most dynamic shooter has only one 30-fantasy point game in the past 10, and the others were either in the 40's or 50's.
Not a bad investment, if you ask me.

An alarming rate of NBA stars has regressed noticeably this season. Some are surprising and some are not, having shown signs of slowing down the past couple years. Easier translation: They're getting old.
Tony Parker, Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, Paul Pierce, among others, are some that are evidently losing their battle against Father Time. In the case of Parker and Williams, injuries are the main culprit, while Garnett, Dirk and Pierce, they are freaking fossils.
Parker's decline Read More
