Who To Pick
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
If you have gone for two whole months accounting for at least 40 FP, you're a definite stud. PG13 is averaging 37.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 2.2 steals in his last 5 games with no signs of slowing down. As we go into the homestretch, expect more of the same, if not more, from Paul George.
Lou Williams, SG, Los Angeles Clippers
Without Tobias Harris, the Clippers will have to lean more on Lou Will for their playoff push. He responded Read More
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.
Lou Williams, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Read More
Players To Own:
Anthony Davis, C, New Orleans Pelicans
AD is in the conversation as the best fantasy player right now averaging 32 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 steals, and 3 blocks over the past three games. This affair with Charlotte has all the makings of a fantasy-friendly matchup and Davis will surely be in the forefront of this one.
Mike Conley, PG, Memphis Grizzlies
Conley is blazing hot lately with double-digit assists in three of the last four outings. But his other Read More
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
Paul George, SF, Oklahoma City Thunder ($9,500)
PG13 has been nothing less than phenomenal, scoring at least 25 points in 11 of his past 13 and draining 52 threes during that span. The Thunder will have a favorable matchup against the Sacramento Kings so expect PG to pick up where he left off.
Spencer Dinwiddie, PG, Brooklyn Nets ($7,000)
Dinwiddie has arguably been the Nets best player of the season, consistently producing very solid numbers since he took over the starting PG reigns. Even with Read More
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards
Beal was a bit of a disappoint fantasy-wise against Atlanta the last time out but that's because they basically blew the Hawks out of the water. That won't happen against a really good Thunder team on Monday and I'd like to throw it out there that Beal torched OKC for 41 last Jan. 25.
The first-time All-Star is averaging 26.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 1.2 steals over the past 30 days.
Lou Williams, SG/PG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou "Not Read More
Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL ($11,600)
He’s returning from a knee injury tonight, but I wouldn’t put him in your lineups right away. I like to give guys returning from injury a game or two to show me they’re healed, especially when their price is $11,600. Take DeMarcus Cousins, LeBron James, or one of the other high-ticket guys instead.
Isaiah Thomas, PG, CLE ($6,200)
I would avoid all Cleveland players not named LeBron until after the All-Star break. Thomas is tempting given all Read More
How you work the waiver is essentially one of the musts in winning your NBA fantasy basketball league. There are just so many factors in an NBA season-- games, injuries, youths, coach's preference-- that it's impossible to stick with a roster without ever making changes.
Here are the top waiver wire pickups for fantasy basketball this week and how they can help your team in the long run:
Marcus Smart, PG/SG, Boston Celtics
Smart has always been an elite steals contributor but without Read More
The NBA is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get until you slip on the wet floor.
Anyway, I couldn't help but feel for the Toronto Raptors. The only team north of the border has turned many heads for their stellar play last season and pundits expected them to do good this year after a little seasoning.
Not this good, though.
The Raptors currently sports a 13-3 record, the best in the Eastern Conference and third overall. A testament to their consistency, there really Read More
