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

3 Building Blocks For FanDuel NBA DFS Thursday– Feb. 22, 2018

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

3 Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday– Jan. 30, 2018

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

NBA DFS Players to Target and Avoid – January 26, 2018

Avoid: 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

Here are the top waiver wire pickups for fantasy basketball this week and how they can help your team in the long run: Guards Marcus Smart, PG/SG, Boston Celtics Smart has always been an elite steals contributor but without Read More

NBA Fantasy Forethought Week 6 (Dec. 1-7)

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

NBA Fantasy Forethought Week 5 (Nov. 24-30)

Half of the top 10 players in the Player Rater are point guards and this is no coincidence. Here we are at basketball's Golden Age of point guards and the way the game has been played in the recent years, you have to have an elite PG (or players that play like one) to be successful. That is even more true when constructing a fantasy team. The fantasy blue print "point guards and power forwards" (explained here) did not come about by chance. Careful observation from our fellow fantasyheads Read More
