5 Weird and Amazing Stat Lines Very Early In The 2019-20 Season

I know there were only 13 games played out of a gazillion more to come but for a stathead like me, I couldn't help but feel giddy. After all, it's about time to overreact. Here are 5 of the weirdest and most amazing stat lines to start the season: 1.

Who To Pick And Avoid For NBA DFS Friday– Feb. 22, 2019

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

Players To Own:
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards

Beal has been on fire lately and has averaged 30 points, 5.3 rebounds, six assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks over the past four games. It does help that John Wall is hurt and could still be riding the shelf this Wednesday, making Beal a must-own in DFS basketball.
Julius Randle, PF, New Orleans Pelicans

Speaking of hot, Randle has been volcanic in December, as he is good for 25.2 points, 10.8 rebounds,  and 2.8 assists during the 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

Famished Five: Most Underrated NBA Players In Each Position

I have always found myself rooting for the underdog.

Ever since I was 7, when I decided to watch hoops rather than X-Men or Power Rangers, my heart was with the underrated ones. Of course, I didn't mean I cheered for the worst team, but my favorite player is not always the best one.

While everybody goes all crazy for the high-flying, acrobatic antics that Michael Jordan always displayed, I applauded the Hersey Hawkins, the Jeff Hornaceks, the Antoine Carrs, and the Rex Chapmans of the world.
