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.

3 Fearless Predictions For The 2016-17 Fantasy Basketball Season

Fantasy sports is more or less based around projections. It is the equivalent of the scientific method except it's pretty much all about educated guesses and an experiment is not a possibility. And we know how our minds mess with us sometimes (or in my case, ALL THE TIME). Our brains, for some reason, work a little faster than the rest of our body at times and VOILA!
