NBA DFS Players to Target – Jan. 18, 2018

There are only 4 games tonight so it’ll make choices even more difficult. Thankfully, one of those teams is Cleveland, who have been generous in giving up points to opponents. LeBron James, CLE, $12,500 LeBron should be angry and motivated after a loss to the Warriors on Monday and all the drama that ensued afterwards. LBJ has put up 60.1 and 63.6 FP in his last two games, both of which outscore even his high FPPG average. The Magic are arguably the NBA’s worst team, but Cleveland’s struggles Read More

NBA MVP Power Rankings

A little over a month ago, here’s how my Power Rankings stacked up: 1A) James Harden, PG, HOU (31.6 ppg) 1B) LeBron James, SF, CLE (28.2 ppg) 3) Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS (24 ppg) 4) Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL (29.9) A LOT has changed in a month so let’s get to some updated rankings Kevin Durant, SF, GSW, 26.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.2 assists Durant has easily been the most consistent player in the league this year. We’re used to him dropping 26+ points Read More

5 Must-Start Players For NBA DFS Monday– Dec. 25, 2017

1. LeBron James, SF, Cleveland Cavaliers LBJ is among the highest-priced players, make no mistake about it. That is only reasonable because he still is the best player in the world, and among the top-3 in fantasy right now. Factor in the crazy atmosphere in this 2016 Finals matchup and you'll probably see the best game James played this season. He is basically averaging a triple-double these days but expect The King to be more assertive in this primetime matchup. There are a lot of high-priced stars 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

5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day– Dec. 1, 2017

1. Another milestone for The King... Congrats to @KingJames of the @cavs for moving up to 10th on the all-time Field Goals Made list with 10,660! #ThisIsWhyWePlay pic.twitter.com/GrnqxWfIzB — NBA (@NBA) December 1, 2017 2. Just a thought: Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram, the No. 1 and No. 2 pick of 2016, got their first 30-point games on the same night. 3. Proof that the NBA is a player's league: Mike D'Antoni's Rockets is sixth in the NBA in defensive efficiency while Tom Thibodeau's Wolves Read More

NBA MVP Power Rankings – The Contenders

Let’s take a look at the early contenders for MVP. Feel free to comment with your top 3 and let’s start a discussion. Personally, I define MVP as the player who has or is having the best season. We all know LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world, but he doesn’t always put together a better season than everybody else. I also don’t like the argument for MVP being guided by the idea of “well if you took him off the team, how bad would they be performing?” In my opinion, Read More

NBA DFS Players to Avoid on Nov. 9 – 2017

Lonzo Ball, PG, LAL ($6,000) Lonzo totaled 9 points, 6 assists and 4 blocks in 39 minutes last night against the Celtics. Lonzo was clearly overmatched by Kyrie Irving, and I bet having to chase Irving around all night contributed to his poor performance on offense. He was just 1-5 from 3-point range, and most of his points came on floaters in the lane, or on aggressive drives to the basket while the Celtics were getting back on defense. Obviously, tonight will be his second game in as many Read More

Players to Target in DFS Basketball on Nov. 7 – 2017

Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL ($10,800) You don’t need me to tell you that Giannis is having a breakout season, and that he’s an incredible pick for DFS. His cost ($10,800) is the highest of the night, but I think he’s worth it and here’s why: He’s hot right now, coming off 29 points (13-27 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 4 rebounds, 4 blocks, and 3 assists on Friday. He’s had a lot of rest over the long weekend and he’ll be ready to go. He’s playing the Cavs tonight. As I mentioned Read More

Surprises of the NBA Eastern Conference so Far this Season

The Boston Celtics’ Success without Gordon Hayward After all the hype and anticipation, it was devastating to see Gordon Hayward go down with a season-ending injury just 5 minutes into the season. The Celtics looked devastated and it showed early on, falling to 0-2 on the season. Since then, they’ve won six straight and the young team seems to have developed something special. With Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, and Jaylen Brown all a year older and more developed, this is one of the deepest teams Read More
