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. 20, 2019– NBA DFS Wednesday

1.) Spencer Dinwiddie, PG, Brooklyn Nets The injury bug has hit the Nets backcourt once again as Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert both sidelined. That sucks but at the same time, it will be an opportunity to find someone who will most probably fill up the slack. There's no doubt in anybody's mind that for Brooklyn, that SOMEONE is Spencer Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie has now averaged 26 points, three rebounds, and six assists over the past two games with 5 total blocks and steals. Along with Dinwiddie, Read More

NBA DFS Dec. 21, 2018– Players To Own And Avoid

Who To Own
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers

If you have one big-time player to own on Friday, my money is on LeBron James. The Lakers are losers of three straight and it will be their first time back at home after a four-game road trip so James will be looking to put on a show. He is averaging 26 points, nine rebounds, 7.6 assists, a steal, and 2.2 3PM over the last five games. Scary thing is, we know he's capable of doing more.
Marcus Smart, SG, Boston Celtics

NBA DFS Players to Avoid – Dec. 13, 2017

 
Nikola Jokic, C, DEN ($9,800)
Jokic is coming off an ankle injury, and should be back tonight against Boston. Normally, I like to see a “show me” game from players returning from injury before I put them in my lineup. His price isn’t affordable enough for me, especially since he’ll need a game to shake off the rust. Also, we saw what Aron Baynes was able to do to Andre Drummond, holding him to single digit points and rebounds. Grab Dwight Howard or DeAndre Jordan at C tonight and spend Read More

NBA “PICK’EM” DFS Strategy – Nov. 1, 2017

We’ve got 8 games tonight, so there are a lot of options to choose from. Let’s try and narrow it down to the best choices in the pick’em format.

Tier 1 – Anthony Davis, PF/C, NO
In tier 1, we get to choose from Davis, Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins, and Rockets guard James Harden. Harden has had to carry the load for the Rockets with Chris Paul out, but he had a rough shooting night on Monday (8-21), and the Knicks have been surprisingly effective against opposing point guards. So Read More

NBA Fantasy Basketball Team Outlook: Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics teams of decades past (maybe except the mid-90's) always revolved around superstars. From Larry Bird and Kevin McHale to Antoine Walker, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen, it's the franchise's way of securing winning campaigns and championships.
However, the past few years hasn't been that way. You can't fault GM Danny Ainge for not trying, but superstars are hard to come by. That turned out to be a positive in fantasy basketball since Brad Stevens was forced Read More

March 29, 2016– 5 Interesting NBA Facts and Stats

1. Kawhi Leonard is great but...
it's clear his bread-and-butter is NOT scoring. There are a gazillion of NBA players right now who have better single-game career-high in points than the San Antonio forward (Kawhi's career high is 32 points, by the way) . This guy has a lot of time so he took the liberty to list down ALL of the players mentioned.
2. Strictly talking about assists, John Stockton is in a league of his own.
The Utah Jazz legend has averaged at least 13.5 assists for FIVE CONSECUTIVE Read More

January 16, 2016– Fascinating NBA Stats Of The Day

1. Day of triple-doubles.
Owners of Hassan Whiteside, Russell Westbrook, and Marcus Smart were having a field day last night. All three of them recorded triple doubles, the most impressive one on Whiteside. The Miami Heat big man stepped up without Dwyane Wade, tallying 19 points, 17 rebounds, and a crazy 11 blocks!

Westrbook and Smart were not so bad, dropping almost the same numbers. The Thunder dynamo had 12 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists while Smart had 10 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 Read More
