1.) Steph's three-point shooting. Kyle Terada-USA TODAY SC30 is the greatest shooter of all time bar none but the Rockets have been doing a pretty good job taking his ultimate weapon. He has missed a total of 42 attempts from distance, the most he had over a five-game stretch. 2.) Ben Simmons is shooting 100% from midrange in the Playoffs... ... on one attempt. 3.) Hey, that looked like James Harden's chart shot in the last 8:30 minutes of Game 5 without KD! James Harden’s Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA Playoffs DFS Monday– May 6, 2019

The Studs Draymond Green, PF/C, Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports This guy should be in every DFS roster and if you're not having him, there is something wrong with you. Hell, he can even be considered a bargain with his price. Green is averaging 16 points, 10.7 rebounds, 8.7 assists, a steal and a block in this series and there is no signs of him slowing down. I see him pretty much having a triple-double from hereon out. Kyrie Irving, PG, Boston Celtics Brian Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Monday– March 11, 2019

The Studs
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards

Beal is averaging 25.8 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, and 2.3 steals in the past four, the All-Star guard will look to squeeze the Wizards into the playoff picture.

5 Best Point Guards For Fantasy Basketball

The point guard position is the deepest in fantasy basketball but owning the best ones will allow yourself to separate from the pack in many categories. Ideally, a point guard is your lynchpin for assists and steals, gives you a healthy dose of scoring and three-pointers while being a stabilizing force for the FT% category.

But what if your PG also contribute in the rebounding category, possibly even add some defensive stats, and not hurt you because of a poor shooting clip? Well, I'm talking Read More

Players To Own And Avoid on NBA DFS Wednesday– Dec. 12, 2018

Players To Own:
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards

Beal has been on fire lately and has averaged 30 points, 5.3 rebounds, six assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks over the past four games. It does help that John Wall is hurt and could still be riding the shelf this Wednesday, making Beal a must-own in DFS basketball.
Julius Randle, PF, New Orleans Pelicans

Speaking of hot, Randle has been volcanic in December, as he is good for 25.2 points, 10.8 rebounds,  and 2.8 assists during the Read More

5 Awesome NBA Stats of the Day– Dec. 6, 2018

1.) The Spurs defense sucks.

San Antonio is ranked 29th in the league on defensive rating, easily the worst in the Gregg Popovich era.
2.) Speaking of the Spurs...
They are currently the second-worst team in the West (11-14), only above Phoenix.
3.) Is Nikola Jokic the BEST PASSER (not the best passing big man) in the game?
The Serbian big is averaging 7.8 assists a game, good for ninth in the league. However, he is averaging less than 30 minutes of playing time and has assisted on 38.4% Read More

NBA DFS Players to Target, Feb 23, 2018


Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS ($7,900)
Irving will want to hit the ground running to begin the second half for the Celtics. They get Detroit tonight at 7:00pm, and the Pistons no longer have Avery Bradley to help pester him. Also, the presence of Drummond and Griffin down low could mean more outside shots for Irving and company.
Nikola Jokic, C, DEN ($9,700)
As usual, the center pool doesn’t have much to choose from, but there’s a case to be made you should reach for Jokic despite his high salary. Read More

2018 All-Star Team Projections

NBA All-Star Voting 2018 presented by Verizon will tip off with an early voting period exclusively on the NBA App and NBA.com beginning Thursday, Dec. 21 at 1 p.m. ET. In honor of the impending vote, lets take a look at who should make it this year. Keep in mind that this year, there will be no East V West, it has moved to a draft format. It’s clear that the All-Star game is dying since none of the players care, so the draft will at least add some life into it. Useless or not, I’ve always liked Read More

NBA MVP Power Rankings – Dec. 14, 2017


1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg)
The third overall pick in the 2009 draft continues to impress as his team maintains a one game lead over the Warriors for the #1 seed in the West. He’s one of the most gifted scorers in recent memory, and is a good bet to average over 30 ppg for the season, something only KD and Steph Curry have done in the past 8 years. This year, his stellar play is actually turning into more wins and the Rockets look like a legit threat to the Warriors. Rumors have been Read More
