Who To Own
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers
If you have one big-time player to own on Friday, my money is on LeBron James. The Lakers are losers of three straight and it will be their first time back at home after a four-game road trip so James will be looking to put on a show. He is averaging 26 points, nine rebounds, 7.6 assists, a steal, and 2.2 3PM over the last five games. Scary thing is, we know he's capable of doing more.
Marcus Smart, SG, Boston Celtics
Smart has been a fantasy Read More
Jimmy Butler's wish came true as the Minnesota Timberwolves decided to move into a different direction and trade the disgruntled star to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers parted ways with Robert Covington, Dario Saric, Jerryd Bayless, and a future second-round pick to make the deal work.
As much as we are in awe right now because of the recent power shift, the fantasy-head in us only care about how the trade affects our fantasy teams going forward. Who are the biggest winners and losers in the Read More
Hello, and good day, I hope everyone had a chance to read my first post and give it a try on a cheap contest just for the hell of it. The Lineup I posted yesturday did not finish in the money, but that one was literally the only dud I had. I should have mentioned that I give free lineups on Twitter all the time, and last night I cashed out in 7 contests between DraftKings and FanDuel. Throughout the day I tinker with a new lineup here and there in a Quarter Contest. I will make sure to leave Read More
In the Hunt
Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS, 20.6 points, 5.2 assists, 3.1 rebounds
Irving’s stats are well below the other contenders for MVP, but he provides quality, clutch plays for the Celtics. He may not average nearly 30 a game, but he consistently closes games for the Celtics and is the trusted ball handler who limits turnovers and makes the right play when the game is on the line. He’s helped Al Horford and the rest of his teammates overachieve so far this year. In the epic game against the Read More

Karl-Anthony Towns, C ($7,000)
The 2015 No. 1 overall pick is on fire lately, averaging 48. 25 fantasy points over the last four games.
