Top 5 Candidates For 2020 Most Improved Player

If the season is officially over, who are your candidates for Most Improved Player? Well, that's a tough question since the "Most Improved" tag can simply be theoretical. Is your MIP rose from relative obscurity to prominence? Someone who was good but kept adding up to his game? Or perhaps a first-time All-Star? Who knows, but every young star appearing on this list definitely has a case. Let's start with someone from the most pleasant surprise teams, the Oklahoma City Thunder: 1.) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Read More

2020 NBA Fantasy Basketball MVP Discussion: LeBron James’ 5 Best Stat Lines Of The Season

It's hard to determine who the MVP of 2020 Fantasy Basketball but there are at least SIX who are in the conversation, in my opinion. These are James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis, Nikola Jokic, James Harden, and Luka Doncic. Doncic missing games is an issue but still, he is a force to be reckoned with 52.61 fantasy points per game, according to NBA's official fantasy scoring system. But we will get to Luka at another time. This article is about LeBron James, AKA The Washed King, AKA Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Friday– Jan. 17, 2020

Thurday's picks were a rousing success so I've got to roll at least one more time: The Jazz lost to New Orleans, no thanks to Brandon Ingram's career-high 49 points, but Rudy Gobert is still on that unbelievable streak. That's now five straight double-doubles for the Stifle Tower (17 points, 14 rebounds) but the four assists and three blocks made all the difference. As predicted, Kemba Walker was a little more aggressive than he was the past few games and racked up 40 points and 11 rebounds plus Read More

5 Bargain OptioNS For NBA DFS Jan. 6, 2020

I wasnt' able to do a recap for Jan. 4 because of time constraints but MPJ, Jordan McRae, and Marcus Smart all disappointed for various reasons. Ish Smith went nuclear in the Wizards win (with Troy Brown giving quality minutes off the bench) so McRae did not really have the chance to replicate on his career game. Smart still played a lot of minutes but the return of Jaylen Brown kind of capped his ceiling. That doesn't mean, however, that I will completely ignore him in the upcoming game against Read More

Who To Avoid On NBA DFS Sunday– Nov. 3, 2019

A six-game slate on Sunday provides us with a lot of options but you need to give it a second thought before you decide to tap the services of any of these players. 1.) Luka Doncic, PG, Mavericks Doncic possibly came up with the best game of his career against LeBron James and the Lakers but he did not come out unscathed on that one. While he did register an insane 31-13-15 outing, he needed stitches after he was hit by the head. The Mavs did not rule him out Sunday versus Cleveland (for now) but Read More

5 Players That Are Drafted Too High/Too Low in Yahoo Leagues

1.) Luka Doncic, PG, Dallas Mavericks (Yahoo ADP: 19.6) Doncic is a risk taking at that spot perhaps at least a round too early. Last season, Luka clocked at 71 in the rankings by FantasyPros, and that is despite his otherworldly rookie campaign (21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 6 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.3 3PM). The downfall of Doncic was in his efficiency (under 43% FG, over 71% from the line and 3.4 turnovers per game) and based on preseason returns, that's not going to change anytime soon. Moreover, Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Wednesday– April 10, 2019

It's the last game of the NBA regular season and it's a little tricky picking up players for your DFS squad because teams are resting key players left and right. However, we still have lots of options especially the super rookies.
The Studs
Trae Young, PG, Atlanta Hawks

Young is not on the injury report against the Pacers and there is a big chance he'll suit up for the final game of the season. Ice Trae has made the Rookie of the Year race a bit more interesting down the stretch, averaging Read More

These 7 Young Guys Should Be Fantasy Basketball Keepers For Next Season

Many of us already have Golden State as three-peat champions at the start of the season (although the East's Milwaukee, Toronto, and Boston begs to disagree) and already looking forward to 2019-20. In fantasy basketball, it's normal to look ahead, especially in keeper leagues. Now is the time to sift through and investigate who you have and determine whether they are worth a keeper spot in your roster. If you have any of these 7 guys all under 24 yrs of age, though, be sure you have them as fantasy Read More
