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

Here's your guide to finding underrated fantasy options at power forward: Seen Better Days?

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

Fantasy Basketball Sleepers You Should Keep An Eye on

The whole season- grind in fantasy basketball can be won on many different counts. But if you're thinking having a top two or three pick will automatically make you a lock to dominate your league, you better think again. Sure, it would be nice to pick LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony for the first two rounds, but unless they are messing around, your peers could have the same firepower as you during those early stages. What am I getting at here? What I'm saying is, most fantasy leagues are won Read More

Fantasy Basketball Team Preview: Los Angeles Lakers

Overview: People in Los Angeles aren't the most patient in the world so anyone cheering for the Purple and Gold find very little reason to do so. Kobe Bryant seemed to have one thing in mind from the get-go, and that is to pass Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list, shooting percentages be damned. Highly-touted rookie Julius Randle got himself seven minutes of real NBA play before breaking his tibia. And the list goes on. No fantasy-productive players will return this season except Read More
