Best Players To Draft In Fantasy Basketball

That said, there are certain players who are can't miss, which means if they somehow fall in your lap, you better not take five seconds before you pull the damn trigger. What we are going to do is go through six rounds of drafting Read More

5 Unbelievable Numbers/Facts In Game 1 Of The NBA Finals

1. KD (and Draymond) couldn't guard LeBron.

Basically, nobody could touch LeBron in Game 1 as he went off for a playoff career-high 51 points. But KD, Bron's primary defender, allowed him to score 30 points on 10-for-15 shooting.

To be fair to KD, Draymond Green didn't do a better job, either. Green was LeBron's primary defender in eight possessions, and James scored eight points on 4-for-6 shooting.

Apparently, the Dubs need Iggy real quick or LeBron will probably average 45 in this series.

5 Must-Start Players For NBA DFS Monday– December 18, 2017

1. Kevin Durant, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors

Starting with the highest-paid guy, KD is a no-brainer must-start for every DFS team. You have earned as much when you average 34 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, and 3 blocks in a four-game span. Expect that kind of numbers especially with Steph Curry out, but since Draymond Green could be on the shelf as well against the Lakers, the Slim Reaper should go berserk in Kobe's jersey retirement night.

NBA DFS Players to Target – 12/6/17

 

 
Kevin Durant, SF, GSW, $10,000
If Durant can calm down and not get thrown out of tonight’s game, then I love his value at $10K. With Steph Curry out the next two weeks with an ankle injury, look for KD to absorb a lot of Curry’s stats and shots. He’s had some ankle issues of his own recently, but he gets a nice matchup with the Hornets tonight.
Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS, $8,900
“The Mask” has been heating up as of late, and hopefully Jayson Tatum’s improved shooting Read More
