Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 21, 2020

I hope you logged early to check out the injury news before the Nets-Sixers game and made the necessary adjustment. Well, without Ben Simmons, that pretty much made Joel Embiid a must-roster and he did not disappoint. Here's a recap of my picks for Feb. 20. Joel, Joel, Joel. Embiid took advantage of Simmons absence and brutalized Brooklyn. JoJo finished with 39 points, 16 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks. Same thing with Bam Adebayo. History repeated itself with Bam torching the Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 10, 2020

I got it rolling the last time I did my best value picks going six for seven in the names I dropped. The seventh, Victor Oladipo, rested so I think I should get a free pass for that. Here's a rundown of what happened Feb. 8th: First name dropped was Nikola Jokic, who was absolutely volcanic in the previous games leading to this one. He cooled off a little bit but was still stellar: 23-9-6 plus a steal and three blocks. The six turnovers did hurt a little bit but he was still good for over 48 FP Read More

3 players to build your DraftKings lineup around. Dec 22nd.

Saturday Recap. LaMarcus Aldridge   23.50 FPTs     12P/2A/4R/1S/1B Dario Saric   18.25 FPTs   10P/5R/1S Bruce Brown Jr    15.75    4P/4A/3R/2S Complex Aldridge had a good first half, but like the rest of his team, fell off a cliff in the second half. LaMarcus only scored 2 points and grabbed one rebound in the 3rd quarter and was benched in a blowout in the 4th. With the way he was playing in the first I thought I would get around 40 fantasy points Read More

5 Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Nov. 27, 2019

Lots of choices to go around a 14-game night but let me give you a heads-up of who I think are the top 5 value picks for Nov. 27. 1.) Marcus Smart, PG/SG, Boston Celtics Yahoo: $23; DraftKings: $6,500 Smart had himself a night against Sacramento, tallying 17 points, three rebounds, seven assists, five steals, a block, and more importantly, no turnovers. He jammed his finger late in the game but he expects to be fine against Brooklyn at home. As long as the Celtics are without Kemba Walker and Gordon Read More

5 Best Value Picks For Nov. 25 NBA DFS

1.) Donte DiVincenzo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Yahoo: $13 ; DraftKings: $4,900 Considering the Detroit game was over in the third quarter, DiVincenzo's line of six points, seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals isn't that bad. Donte saw his minutes and role increase with Khris Middleton out. And even if Middleton returns at some point, he is still probably keep his starting spot since he has outplayed Wesley Matthews by a wide margin. 2.) Malcolm Brogdon, Read More

7 Fascinating Stats And Facts Early In The NBA Season

It's just been a little over two weeks since the 2019-20 NBA season tipoff but it already provides us with plenty of material for some really fascinating facts and stats: 1.) The Assists Battle LeBron James is the runaway leader in APG early in the season with 11.1 but Malcolm Brogdon edged him 79-78 for the total assist count as the Pacers played their eighth game Thursday. Four out of the top 5 in APG this season were nowhere near the league leaders in the category last season. Only Russell Westbrook. Read More

7 Buy Low/Sell High Candidates Early In The Season

1.) Rudy Gobert, C, Utah Jazz (Buy Low) Currently ranked 126th in Yahoo and 66th in the Player Rater, Rudy Gobert is not the top-20 player we projected him to be in a VERY SMALL SAMPLE SIZE. The rebounds are there (12.0) but since he is dependent on one category (blocks) that is basically non-existent for his standards (1.1), the Stifle Tower is relegated to that very low fantasy ranking. Couple that with an unusually high turnover rate (2.9 per game) and that's a recipe for disaster. Which means Read More

Who To Play And Who To Avoid For NBA DFS Basketball Wednesday– Oct. 23, 2019

Who To Play Robert Covington, SF/PF, Timberwolves You may forgotten all about RoCo because hwas down to 35 games last season but now that he's healthy and ready to go, I believe he'll be one the best fantasy players around. I mean, how can you not love what we saw in the preaseason? The guy is practically everywhere and in addition to his great defensive stats (2.0 steals and 2.4 blocks per 36 minutes), he was also able to score 14 points, grab under 17 rebounds, and register three dimes per 36 Read More

Best Players To Draft In Fantasy Basketball

If you could redo the draft all over again, would you have picked the same players or are you ready to move on? Well, just to put it out there, there is no such thing as a perfect draft but I am still doing well in my leagues so the answer would be kind of in the middle. That said, there are certain players who are can't miss, which means if they somehow fall in your lap, you better not take five seconds before you pull the damn trigger. What we are going to do is go through six rounds of drafting Read More
