5 Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Nov. 10

You may know pretty well about Anthony Davis or LeBron James, or how Damian Lillard scored 60 the last time out. However, the beauty of DFS is finding value among lesser-known players. Here are 5 you can consider for NBA DFS Sunday, Nov. 10: 1.) Fred VanVleet, PG, Toronto Raptors The Raptors are in Los Angeles to visit the red-hot Lakers and while that is must-see TV, the defending champs are two men down going into Sunday's matchup. Kyle Lowry had a thumb injury which will keep him on the shelf Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Thursday– Mar. 28, 2019

The Studs
Julius Randle, PF, New Orleans Pelicans

With key players out (Jrue Holiday) and status uncertain (Anthony Davis and Elfrid Payton) coming into Thursday night, Randle will go and handle a heavy load against Sacramento. The Kings are not a good defensive rebounding team making them vulnerable to Randle's bully ball inside. If that happens, the former Kentucky Wildcat is looking at a big, big night.
De'Aaron Fox, PG, Sacramento Kings

Meanwhile, Sacramento will be looking at the Read More

Players To Own And Avoid on NBA DFS Wednesday– Dec. 12, 2018

Players To Own:
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards

Beal has been on fire lately and has averaged 30 points, 5.3 rebounds, six assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks over the past four games. It does help that John Wall is hurt and could still be riding the shelf this Wednesday, making Beal a must-own in DFS basketball.
Julius Randle, PF, New Orleans Pelicans

Speaking of hot, Randle has been volcanic in December, as he is good for 25.2 points, 10.8 rebounds,  and 2.8 assists during the Read More

5 Value Picks For NBA DFS Monday– Nov. 26, 2018

5 Value Picks For NBA DFS Monday:
Jabari Parker, PF, Chicago Bulls

Parker is piping hot right now, dropping 20+ in three straight and four of the last five.  He is also contributing 8.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists,  and a steal over that span. He is definitely on a groove right now and now is the best time to take advantage of Parker's resurgence because one Lauri Markannen and Bobby Portis are healthy, minutes should be harder to come by.

NBA DFS Players to Target on Jan. 11, 2018

DeMar Derozan, SG, TOR ($9,600)
Derozan has been a low-key MVP candidate this year and has separated himself from Kyle Lowry as the clear leader of the Raptors. No one really talks about the Raptors, or Derozan, but he’s been on an absolute tear lately, averaging 46 FPPG over his last 4 games. He gets the Cavs tonight at 8:00pm, and Cleveland has been abysmal on defense lately. We saw what Jimmy Butler did against LeBron and Co. and I expect another huge game from DeRozan. His price is relatively Read More

5 Must-Start Players For NBA DFS Wednesday– Dec. 20, 2017

1. Julius Randle, PF, Los Angeles Lakers ($5,500)

JR is No. 1 on this list for a reason. He will probably start Wednesday against the Houston Rockets with Brook Lopez nursing an ankle injury and that alone should net his fantasy points in the high 30's. The Kentucky product is averaging 13.3 points, 6.3 rebounds. 2.5 assists, and 1.3 blocks in the past four games while only playing 26 minutes a night.
2. Mario Hezonja, SF, Orlando Magic ($4,800)

At long last, we had a Mario sighting in Read More

5 Early Season Fantasy Basketball Buy Low/ Sell High Targets

The trademark of a poor fantasy owner is impatience. It just happens well too often-- his better players start out slow and starts to put them on the trading block. If you see someone like that in your league, you better watch out if one or more of these players are on his team and you may want to part some of your overachieving ones as well.

Here are some early season fantasy basketball buy low/ sell high targets:
1. Trevor Ariza, SG/SF, Houston Rockets (Buy Low)
Ariza has been playing the Read More

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks– Dec. 17, 2016

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks-- Dec. 17, 2016
Point Guards
Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix Suns ($7,700)
Bled is one of the higher-priced studs in the position you must keep an eye on. Notwithstanding the dud against San Antonio, Bledsoe has recorded four 50-FP games in the last six, averaging 41.6 fantasy points during that span. In comparison, Steph Curry only had a 40-FP average in the past seven games and he is $800 more expensive.

Reggie Jackson, Detroit Pistons ($5,400)
Jackson saw his minute Read More

2016 Fantasy Basketball: Underrated Power Forward Options

After Paul Millsap, Anthony Davis, Blake Griffin and Kristaps Porzingis (not to mention players with multiple eligibility like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green), who's next? Here's your guide to finding underrated fantasy options at power forward:

Seen Better Days?
Pau Gasol, San Antonio Spurs

Gasol may not be the efficient offensive machine he once was but he is still a solid power forward with multi-category contribution potential. Playing at a shade under 32 minutes last Read More

2016 NBA Fantasy Basketball Team Outlook: Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have been the Fakers the past few seasons, missing out on a number of big-name free agents and trying to make the best out of the last years of Kobe Bryant. We knew how that turned out.
Quietly, though, the Lakers have built a nice young core, not to mention hire one of the brightest young coaches in the game in Luke Walton. Bryant has since retired which means player development will be on full swing and with Walton at the helm, the Purple and Gold figures to be one of the Read More
