We got a 10-game Tuesday night in our heads and you all know what that means: It's time to go bargain hunting!
Here are some of the best bargains for NBA DFS Tuesday:
Jordan Clarkson, PG, Cleveland Cavaliers
20.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 steals, and a steal over the past three games? JC is solidifying his role as an offensive sparkplug off the bench and he is also playing at least 32 minutes in each of these games.
Taurean Prince, SF, Atlanta Hawks
Four solid games out the last six, Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Saturday:
James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets
I'm trying to be a contrarian here with the Harden pick and Houston unexpectedly struggling on offense. The Beard still put up elite numbers (26.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.6 steals) but not the jaw-dropping lines we see from him in seasons past.
What does that mean? That means he is due for an explosive showing and it could come at the expense of the Spurs, who is 23rd in the league when it comes to Read More
1. LeBron James, SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
LBJ is among the highest-priced players, make no mistake about it. That is only reasonable because he still is the best player in the world, and among the top-3 in fantasy right now. Factor in the crazy atmosphere in this 2016 Finals matchup and you'll probably see the best game James played this season. He is basically averaging a triple-double these days but expect The King to be more assertive in this primetime matchup. There are a lot of high-priced stars Read More
On the rise?
Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota Timberwolves
Wiggins provide the one thing that shooting guards should and that's putting the ball through the hoop. On only his second year in the league, the Canadian wing already ranked No. 5 among two's in scoring (20.7) which is nice. He also has a knack of getting fouled (5th among guards with seven FTA per game), which is, again, very nice. However, he is pedestrian anywhere else and is not exactly someone you'd rely on to supply three-point shooting.

Fantasy basketball is equal parts exact numerical science and equal parts alchemy. Steph Curry, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, and a dozen or so options in the first round, they are the very definition of exact science. This one we're about to delve into, this is alchemy.
I can be wrong, you can be wrong, but most the most important and interesting part of it all, there's nothing more fun than tinkering on the unknown. Here are the 5 potential fantasy breakout performers for the 2016-17 season:

Some NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks for a six-game Thursday:
Kyle Lowry, PG ($8,500)
Kyle Lowry has been an absolute stud the past five games. He compiled at least 43 fantasy points during that span including topping at 52 points in a road game at Cleveland. The battle with Orlando is the Toronto Raptors' fifth consecutive road game so at this point, it doesn't matter whether Lowry is at home or in another building. He simply produces.
Kawhi Leonard, SF ($8,100)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice April 12
Reggie Jackson, PG ($8,500)
If there's a sure thing in the point guard position, it's Reggie Jackson. The former Thunder reserve is still somewhat auditioning for everybody, proving he's worth a max contract and not just a backcourt insurance. If owners do look at his fantasy numbers, Jackson might just get what he wants.
Jackson has averaged 44.6 fantasy points in the last four games and practically didn't have one extremely bad statistical Read More
The All-Star reserves were announced this past week and as expected, there were some pleasant surprises and robberies along the way.
Golden State Warriors' Klay Thompson, Atlanta Hawks' Jeff Teague, and Chicago Bulls' do-it-all swingman Jimmy Butler made it to their first All-Star teams. Thompson is widely regarded as one of the league's top two-way players while Teague and Butler are the motors that keep their respective teams' engines running.
Along with Teague, two other Hawks lead the East's Read More
