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

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 27, 2020

It's a sad day for the NBA right now with the passing of the legendary Kobe Bryant. As someone who has followed the guy's career-- the peaks, the valleys, and everything in between-- there are no words to describe what happened. It's just tragic. Anyway, as Kawhi Leonard puts it, he would have wanted everyone to still ball and be great at it, so let's go right on and play. Jan. 25 recap: I was definitely, definitely wrong about Ben Simmons in the Sixers matchup with the Lakers. I failed to recognize Read More

5 Best Centers For Fantasy Basketball

We are almost halfway through the season (some teams have already played 39 games) so allow me to rank the 5 best centers for fantasy basketball right now. Looking at how the chips fall, only one player in this list can be considered a pleasant surprise but find out why I don't think he will be able to sustain his pace. 1.) Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans Davis is the measuring stick of the modern big man-- can score, rebound, pass, and can stretch the floor a little bit. He may be the consensus No. Read More

7 Buy Low/Sell High Candidates In NBA Fantasy Basketball

1.) Lonzo Ball, PG, Los Angeles Lakers

Verdict: Buy Low

Ball is barely clinging into a top-150 value because of poor percentages and mediocre point production. However, the things that he's really great at (assists and steals plus out-of-position stats like rebounds and occasional blocks) are among the rarest in fantasy basketball. In addition to that, scoring can easily be replaced and his shot attempts per game (7.8) and FT attempts per game (0.7) barely moves the needle. If an impatient Read More

5 Must-Start Players For NBA DFS Wednesday– Dec. 20, 2017

1. Julius Randle, PF, Los Angeles Lakers ($5,500)

JR is No. 1 on this list for a reason. He will probably start Wednesday against the Houston Rockets with Brook Lopez nursing an ankle injury and that alone should net his fantasy points in the high 30's. The Kentucky product is averaging 13.3 points, 6.3 rebounds. 2.5 assists, and 1.3 blocks in the past four games while only playing 26 minutes a night.
2. Mario Hezonja, SF, Orlando Magic ($4,800)

At long last, we had a Mario sighting in Read More

5 Must-Start Players In NBA DFS Saturday– Dec. 9, 2017

1. Nicolas Batum, SG/SF, Charlotte Hornets

People forget Batum has long been a fantasy stud and he is beginning to show that after missing the early part of the season. Though he doesn't give you excellent percentages, Batum can pass the hell out of the ball, averaging almost six dimes over the last 5 games. He has also averaged almost 12 points and almost six rebounds during that span. The Hornets, are playing on a tail end of  a back-to-back, so there's a chance fatigue will set in. Nevertheless, Read More

Fantasy Basketball Team Preview: Orlando Magic

Overview:

There's not much to like about the Orlando Magic last season except that they let their group of youngsters develop and see for themselves what works and what doesn't.

It's especially encouraging to see then-coach Jacque Vaughn decide to let Elfrid Payton get all the minutes he can in during the last 20 games or so. The Louisiana-Lafayette product never played less than 31 minutes and the results, however mixed they were, are worth something to look forward to.

This season, the Read More
