Building Blocks For NBA DFS Tuesday– Oct. 30, 2018

Chris Paul, PG, Houston Rockets Honestly, I think it's a toss-up between Kawhi Leonard and CP3 (and you can't go wrong with either) but I'll take Paul with James Harden potentially out against Portland.  Of course, Kawhi has been terrific for the Raptors lately (26.6 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.6 steals, and 0.6 blocks) and after a day off against Milwaukee, the Klaw will be unleashed in a matchup against Ben Simmons.  Again, any one of those two will produce, and if you're willing to Read More

Regardless, George has been ultra-hot lately, averaging 33.3 points, 5 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 3.7 steals, 0.7 blocks and a total of 16 treys in the last three games. Jeff Teague, PG, Minnesota Timberwolves Teague is not playing the best basketball of his career but in the last 3 games, he is actually Read More

3 Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday– Jan. 30, 2018

Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards Beal was a bit of a disappoint fantasy-wise against Atlanta the last time out but that's because they basically blew the Hawks out of the water. That won't happen against a really good Thunder team on Monday and I'd like to throw it out there that Beal torched OKC for 41 last Jan. 25.

NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- March 19, 2017 The Studs DeMar Derozan, SG, Toronto Raptors ($7,700) DeMar Derozan has a pretty mediocre stat line the past six games averaging "only" 34.5 points. He is still the focal point of the Raptors offense. though, and against a less-than-impressive Pacers defense, Derozan could break out and hit the 50's once again.

A 10-game slate Monday provides us with plenty of interesting choices for our DFS basketball lineups. DFS Basketball Value Picks-- Jan. 4, 2015 The Studs Kemba Walker, PG ($8,200) In case you missed it, the Charlotte Hornets are depleted as hell, forcing Kemba Walker's hand to be as offensively aggressive as we have seen him.

After a promising start that had them flirting with the top seed out East, the Toronto Raptors stumbled on their way to the playoffs and suffered a first-round exit against the Washington Wizards. The team's make-up is crystal clear, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan was the primary shot creators while Jonas Valanciunas was supposed to be the inside threat. However, the Raptors weren't about to scare any other team defensively anytime soon which prompted GM Masai Ujiri to pull the trigger on some moves. They Read More
