Top 5 Candidates For 2020 Defensive Player Of The Year

We still don't know when or if the season will even resume but it won't hurt getting the guys the recognition they deserve. These time around, let's give the NBA's best stoppers some love. 1.) Brook Lopez, C, Milwaukee Bucks The Bucks' defense this season approaches historic proportions no thanks to a line of capable defenders from up and down the roster. Guys such as Eric Bledsoe, Wesley Matthews, and Khris Middleton are menaces on the perimeter but Milwaukee's defensive identity relies heavily Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS March 11, 2020

I hope you did your diligence last March 9 and checked the availability of your guys. Turns out the Bucks gave this game away by sitting out four of their five starters and one of their most dynamic players coming off that bench, including three in my suggestions. That said, all of the picks I gave other than the grounded Bucks did absolutely well. Outside of Eric Bledsoe, I did suggest the starting Hornets backcourt and they were awesome, helped by a double-overtime game and playing another team Read More

Best Players To Draft In Fantasy Basketball

If you could redo the draft all over again, would you have picked the same players or are you ready to move on? Well, just to put it out there, there is no such thing as a perfect draft but I am still doing well in my leagues so the answer would be kind of in the middle. That said, there are certain players who are can't miss, which means if they somehow fall in your lap, you better not take five seconds before you pull the damn trigger. What we are going to do is go through six rounds of drafting Read More

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday– Nov. 19, 2018

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday-- Nov. 19, 2018
T.J. Warren, PF, Phoenix Suns

Warren is one of the most effortless scorers you will ever see and after a slow start, he's back at it with 21 or more in each of his last 5 games. He doesn't offer much except over 5 rebounds during that same span but as long as he is putting up points, he'll always be an asset in daily fantasy.
Jrue Holiday, PG/SG, New Orleans Pelicans

Between Paul George and Holiday, the latter is a more viable option Read More

3 Building Blocks For FanDuel NBA DFS Tuesday– March 6, 2018

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)
Holiday has Read More

Top FanDuel NBA Picks Per Position– Dec. 11, 2017

Point Guards
Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers ($9,300)
Dame has been a usage monster since Jusuf Nurkic went down and he has not disappointed DFS owners. He has hit at least 40.7 fantasy points in the past seven games with a high of 55.3 FP. Almost the entire offensive load will practically be on his shoulders, so expect Lillard to be at the 28-point, 6-rebound, 7.5-assist and over 4 trey-a-game average he's had in the past four games.
Rajon Rondo, New Orleans Pelicans ($5,600)
After dropping Read More

1. Serge Ibaka, PF, Orlando Magic

Air Congo is a little up-and-down to begin the season but has since picked up steam. He is actually averaging a career-high in points and hits 1.5 threes a game. He is not Read More

5 Surprising NBA Stats Through Week 6

We do want little surprises here and there to spice things up, don't we? However, as fantasy basketball die-hards, surprises are the last things we want. But since it's pretty much a part of our fantasy basketball lives, we might as well deal with it the best way possible.

1. Jrue Holiday and Danny Green's Impact

The Pelicans kinda suck, let's face it, but they would suck a lot more if Jrue Holiday isn't there. Anthony Davis 'may be having a historic, Michael Jordan, Kareem-like season, but Read More
