Chris Paul, PG, Houston Rockets
Honestly, I think it's a toss-up between Kawhi Leonard and CP3 (and you can't go wrong with either) but I'll take Paul with James Harden potentially out against Portland. Of course, Kawhi has been terrific for the Raptors lately (26.6 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.6 steals, and 0.6 blocks) and after a day off against Milwaukee, the Klaw will be unleashed in a matchup against Ben Simmons. Again, any one of those two will produce, and if you're willing to Read More
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
NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- April 9, 2017
Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder ($13,900)
I usually stay out of Russell Westbrook's way because of his salary. At this point, though, I have to make an exception. No one in Denver can stay in front of Westbrook and with him hungrier than ever to get that historic 42nd double-double, I just think he will come up with a 70-80 FP game.
Kevin Love, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers ($7,800)
Cleveland is stumbling to the playoffs and now that Kyrie Irving Read More
1. Cory Joseph, PG, Raptors (42 .75 points)
Joseph should be up there as far as stats are concerned with Kyle Lowry out for an extended period of time. That's not the case, however, at least not until tonight. Somebody should have seen it coming but not me: CoJo had a full stat line against the Hornets defense, scoring 18 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks, and two treys. He did have 13 assists the other time around against the Magic but I thought it was a fluke. I should Read More
On the rise?
Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota Timberwolves
Wiggins provide the one thing that shooting guards should and that's putting the ball through the hoop. On only his second year in the league, the Canadian wing already ranked No. 5 among two's in scoring (20.7) which is nice. He also has a knack of getting fouled (5th among guards with seven FTA per game), which is, again, very nice. However, he is pedestrian anywhere else and is not exactly someone you'd rely on to supply three-point shooting.

The Atlanta Hawks isn't quite rebuilding (re-tooling may be a better word) but they look different from last year. Two of its five starters are gone though they retained most of their bench from last season.
Speaking of gone, fan favorite Al Horford is no longer here. Hometown boy Dwight Howard takes his place while the keys to the team's future was handed over to Dennis Schroder as they traded Jeff Teague to Indiana. It remains to be seen how the pieces fit for Mike Budenholzer but since Paul Millsap, Read More
Before every fantasy basketball season starts, there were sleepers. Once it begins, there were only surprises.
Every year, there seems to be a handful of players who defy preseason expectations, forcing themselves up into fantasy relevance. The season is a long way off, but right now, everyone better get a hold of these fantasy basketball early season surprises quick.
Undrafted out of Arizona, T.J. McConnell's basketball career is virtually built around being labeled as an "unknown". Read More
