5 Unpopular Fantasy basketball Takes Coming Into The season

1.) Russell Westbrook is still top-10 in fantasy basketball. This year's fantasy draft has Brodie as an early Round 2 pick but even with James Harden around, the Rockets offense is designed to accomodate another high-usage player. And it's not like Westbrook has not played with Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Paul George before. Last season was a down year for Westbrook and he still finished in the top 15. Odds are he will not be averaging a triple-double for the fourth straight year but he Read More

Fantasy Impact of the Anthony Davis Trade

The first domino of the offseason has fallen and we are feeling the effects of the fallout. What we would like to know, though, is how the Anthony Davis trade from the Pelicans to the Lakers impacts both teams in a fantasy perspective. Here's how the deal went down: https://twitter.com/wojespn/status/1140023139142971392 Along those lines, the other two first-round picks are open for swaps and protections/unprotections over the next four years or so. Fantasy Impact On The Lakers After Read More

NBA DFS Dec. 23, 2018– Players To Own And Avoid

Who To Own
Anthony Davis, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans

Davis' salary can be crippling but with a nine-game slate, it's easier to find production at a discount. I mean, how can you go wrong on picking someone who dropped over 60 fantasy points after leaving the pre-game warmups to vomit? The Pelicans will be playing Sacramento, another ultra fast-paced team, making this a very fantasy-friendly matchup.

Fanduel: $12,500

DraftKings: $11,500

Yahoo: $58
Lou Williams, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers

7 Buy Low/Sell High Candidates In NBA Fantasy Basketball

1.) Lonzo Ball, PG, Los Angeles Lakers

Verdict: Buy Low

Ball is barely clinging into a top-150 value because of poor percentages and mediocre point production. However, the things that he's really great at (assists and steals plus out-of-position stats like rebounds and occasional blocks) are among the rarest in fantasy basketball. In addition to that, scoring can easily be replaced and his shot attempts per game (7.8) and FT attempts per game (0.7) barely moves the needle. If an impatient Read More

Players To Own And Avoid For NBA DFS Wednesday– Nov. 7, 2018

Players To Own:
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder

Russell Westbrook suffered a terrible ankle sprain late in the game against the Pelicans and will likely be a scratch Wednesday versus Cleveland. That would mean PG13 will be called upon to carry more of the load which he is not a stranger of. He may not be scoring much over his last 5 (17 points per game) but all the other numbers (7.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.6 steals, and 1.4 blocks) are superb. Without Westbrook, expect George to look for his Read More

3 Building Blocks For FanDuel NBA DFS Tuesday– March 13, 2018

Lonzo Ball, PG, Los Angeles Lakers ($7,800)
It will be somewhat of a grudge match when Denver visits the Staples Center Tuesday night after the incident at the Mile High City involving Luke Walton and Nuggets guard Jamaal Murray. Nevertheless, it would seem like Ball likes his matchups against Denver, averaging 11.7 points, 11 rebounds, 8 assists, and 2 steals in three previous outings.
Dario Saric, PF, Philadelphia 76ers ($6,700)
Saric has been on fire from deep as of late, draining an eye-popping Read More

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.
2. Omri Casspi, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors

NBA DFS Pick’Em Strategy – Nov. 29th

Tier 1 – James Harden, PG, Hou
We get to choose from James Harden, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis in tier 1, and I would take Harden here. He scored 73 fantasy points on Monday with 37 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks. Quite simply, Harden gives you the highest ceiling of any fantasy player right now. Chris Paul hasn’t had a negative effect on his fantasy output and he’s starting to heat up from 3-point range, hitting a season-high 8 of them on Monday.
Tier 2 – Read More

NBA DFS Best Value Picks– Nov. 17, 2017

The Studs

 
Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Pistons ($8,900)
Drummond is as consistent as they come, having sub-40 FP games only twice in the past 10. In a previous matchup against the Pacers earlier this month, Drummond torched them with 14 and 21 with 4 assists and a block (47.75 fantasy points). Indiana is among the league's worst in defending opposing centers so there's a chance Drummond could follow that up with another solid game.
Lonzo Ball, PG, Los Angeles Lakers ($7,100)
OK, it Read More
