NBA DFS Dec. 21, 2018– Players To Own And Avoid

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

Players To Own And Avoid On NBA DFS Friday– Dec. 7, 2018

Players To OWN: Kelly Olynyk, PF/C, Miami Heat Olynyk has strung up three good games in a row and with Hassan Whiteside not playing Friday against Phoenix, Olynyk should soak up most of the minutes. He has averaged 14 points, seven rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.3 steals the last three outings with probably the best one coming up against an anemic Suns defense. Darren Collision, PG, Indiana Pacers Most would probably pick Tyreke Evans as the most likely beneficiary of Victor Oladipo's injury, Read More

Players To Own LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers LBJ always shows up on big games and I'd count this one as such because it will be the first time he'll return to Cleveland wearing a Lakers uniform. His return to Miami saw him produce a season-high 51 and while I don't expect that scoring output this time around, I also don't think he'll be a disappointment in his return home. Marc Gasol, C, Memphis Grizzlies Gasol has begun to hit his groove the last two games, producing 21.5 points, Read More

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Avoid On Thursday, April 20, 2017

NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Avoid On Thursday DeMar DeRozan, SG, Toronto Raptors ($8,000) Everything is exposed in the playoffs and unless DeMar DeRozan finds ways to expand his range or create for others, I don't think the high-scoring guard is a wise investment at $8,000.

However, if you want the bang for your Read More
