Mostly all of my picks on 27th did really well and even though both Rudy Gobert (12 points, 14 rebounds, one steal, and two blocks) and Nikola Vucevic (13 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, a steal, and a block) are essentially below average (at least to my liking), all of the other picks were on-point:
Oh, my! Spida Mitchell! DM had over 50 FP for the second time in six games and to think I had him as my pick because he is worth only under $8,000, I struck gold.
Kris Dunn and Larry Nance Jr. were Read More
Patience is a virtue and that's a fact even in fantasy basketball. There's a reason somebody came up with the adage "good things come to those who wait" because, well, good things come to those who wait.
In fantasy basketball, the hardest thing to figure is when to cut bait and when to be patient when your players are under-performing. Or if someone who was predicted to be a breakout candidate couldn't get 20 minutes of playing time.
This is a dated reference but remember how Pascal Siakam started Read More
Buddy Hield 33.50 FPTs 19P/4A/4R/2S
Julius Randle 36.25 FPTs 20P/2A/9R/1S
Marvin Bagley 27.50 FPTs 17P/2A/6R
Buddy Hield had a good game against the Warriors. He didn’t have as big a day as I thought/hoped, Buddy has shown he can drop easily drop 30+ points and the Warriors are one of the worst teams in the league defending the 3. Hield ended up with 19 points, going 2-5 from 3, and finished Read More

2.) The Warriors are basically trash without Steph Curry.
If you can't read graphs or have problems reading them, the Warriors are +4131 with Steph Curry on the court in the last five years while a -447 with him riding the bench.
3.) Steph Making History... Again
With 5 minutes and 16 seconds left in the first quarter, Steph Curry hit a three-pointer to mark his 100th Read More
1.) Kawhi Leonard
Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports
I mean, this playoffs is all about this guy so we might as well talk about him first.
*Finished Game 5 with 35 points, seven rebounds, and nine assists-- the dimes tying his career-high.
*He shot 90% from the stripe in 51 attempts in the series while in comparison, Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 60% on 50 attempts.
*He is on pace to become the third-leading playoff scorer in Raptors franchise history behind Kyle Lowry, DeMar Derozan, Read More
1.) Steve Kerr's win percentage in five seasons:
USA Today Sports
That's 78.5%. In an 82-game season, that's 64-18. To put that into perspective, the Milwaukee Bucks had the NBA's best record this season with "only" 60-22.
His playoff record over that span is 63-20, or a 76% win percentage, which is just CRAZY!
2.) ECF struggles

The Eastern Conference Finals is giving us some pretty good basketball but it can't be denied that some key players Read More
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards
Beal is averaging 25.8 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, and 2.3 steals in the past four, the All-Star guard will look to squeeze the Wizards into the playoff picture. They will be up against Sacramento, who has playoff aspirations themselves, so expect to see an A-game from Double B tomorrow night.
Kyrie Irving, PG, Boston Celtics
Irving is good for 24.3 points, seven rebounds, 7.3 assists, and 1.3 steals over the past three, culminating Read More
As basketball evolved into more of a positionless game, the line between forwards, guards, and centers has blurred. The same can be said of the power forward position. From bruisers and bangers, the modern power forward is expected to space the floor, bring the ball up if needed, and basically do everything. We know that many of the top centers and small forwards are also eligible for the "4" but since we want to rank players uniquely for every position, we arrived with this. Here are the 5 best Read More
Al Horford, C, Boston Celtics
Horford's numbers are never eye-popping but more so this season. He hasn't had double-digit rebounds since October 20 and his season-high in points is only 19. So why would you pick him up to start for your DFS roster? Because his best fantasy game came against the Raptors on October 19th, where he amassed 14 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists. A matchup against the best of the East may ignite some fire for the veteran. Plus, his modest salary certainly doesn't Read More
