Here are my top 3 picks (other than James Harden and LeBron James) for tonight’s matchups. The prices and fantasy points referred to are DraftKings and FanDuel numbers. Josh Jackson vs. Lakers Josh Jackson will run you $5900 Read More

January 4th DraftKings Lineup.

I hope everyone had a chance to use the core lineup I gave on Monday. DeRozan had a career night and the other 4 had point totals well above their FPPG average. Nurkic and Valentine were both under 5% owned. Tonight is only a 2 game slate, my wheelhouse is 5-9 games in a night, but I was able to create a lineup that looked decent. My 8 player team broke down to 4 different FPPG tiers; 2 in the 40s, 2 in the 30s, 2 in the 20s and 2 in the 10s. The 40s- Durant 48.8, Paul 42.2 I was Read More

Big Picks, Small Slate. Jan 1, 2018 Draftkings Lineup Help.

Happy New Year everyone. The start of the 2017-18 NBA season was for me, hoping to continue the trend as the calendar rolls over into 2018. Here are some must plays for Monday night. PG. Elfrid Payton, $7,100 Elfrid Payton has been playing very well the past couple of games. His FPPG is 29.8, however, in the last 5 games that average is up to 40.6. He is matched up tonight against Spencer Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie has done a great job filling in for the injured D'Angelo Russell, but is a Read More

5 Players You Need in Your DraftKings Lineup

Tonight is a Ten game schedule. The more choices, the more doubt creeps in with your pick. Here are 5 picks to help get your lineup jumpstarted. PG Jamal Murray, $5,100 Nice value pick here. Jamal Murray scored a season high 31 points the last time they played the Pelicans. Not a whole lot of defense is going to be played in this game, the Nuggets won 146-114 last game, I don't think both teams will tighten up on Defense over night. SG. Dwyane Wade, $5,800 I am using the PG slot Read More

DraftKing Tips for November 30th.

  There have been a lot of key injuries this season, and It has made for some fun match ups with bench players getting big minutes in some cases.

Here are a few Draftkings players I recommend drafting today, injuries played a big part in most of my picks. Kevin Love, $8,000 Ride the hot hand. Kevin love had an amazing game on Tuesday, he scored a game high 38 points Read More

Draftkings lineup for November 27th.

This is my first article for Fantasybasketball101. I will be giving lineups and draft tips on the DraftKings site. FanDuel is well represented on this site and I am a better player on DraftKings anyways so it works out nicely. I am going to try to write an article on days that have between 5-8 games. Lineups I make in that game range are the ones I am confident in the most. Follow me on https://twitter.com/canadianBBallG PG. Lonzo Ball, $7,100 This is technically a road game for Read More


Hopefully you listened to my advice yesterday, here's a quick recap: Steph Curry dropped 29 points, Ben Simmons finally got his triple-double thanks to his hybrid-PG status, and Otto Porter was impressive again with a double-double. Frank Kaminsky scored 18 points including 3-4 from 3-point range, and Avery Bradley had a mixed night with 15 points, but just 1-5 from beyond the arc. TUESDAY - OCT. 24, 2017 Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS ($8,700) There are a lot of reasons to like Kyrie tonight. The Read More

Bazemore is averaging 11 points, 5.25 rebounds, and 1.25 steals this season while logging an average of 30 minutes per game as a starter. Bazemore could easily get 30 fantasy points on a weak Nets backcourt.

Fantasy Basketball Is Fun Because of Steve Nash

As soon as Steve Nash officially hung up his sneakers sometime last week, I was grinning from ear to ear, if not visibly, deep down inside my heart. No, not that I hate the guy-- it's quite the opposite-- but it's like looking at your terminally ill relative deciding to put down resistance for today and decided to postpone the war later. Only, not in this present world. Heaps of praise and support rained on Canada's first true NBA star and naturally, conversations shifted from how he blew the Los Read More
