Players To Build Around:
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
There is no timetable yet for the return of Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony which means PG is going to be busy if both wouldn't be able to go. Regardless, George has been ultra-hot lately, averaging 33.3 points, 5 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 3.7 steals, 0.7 blocks and a total of 16 treys in the last three games.
Jeff Teague, PG, Minnesota Timberwolves
Teague is not playing the best basketball of his career but in the last 3 games, he is actually Read More
5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day-- April 5, 2017
1. "Lucky" 13?
Shaun Livingston made only 12 three-pointers in his career and his 13th make couldn't be any luckier.
2. Speaking of three's, Pau Gasol is getting pretty good at it.
If the season ended today, Pau Gasol would have the best three-point percentage of any player in a single season in NBA history (min 50 3FG)

Not the case with Andre Read More
1. Cory Joseph, PG, Raptors (42 .75 points)
Joseph should be up there as far as stats are concerned with Kyle Lowry out for an extended period of time. That's not the case, however, at least not until tonight. Somebody should have seen it coming but not me: CoJo had a full stat line against the Hornets defense, scoring 18 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks, and two treys. He did have 13 assists the other time around against the Magic but I thought it was a fluke. I should Read More
5 Players To Avoid In NBA DFS-- March 29, 2017
1. DeMarcus Cousins, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans ($9,600) vs Mavericks
Both DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis average over 50 fantasy points in the past 10 days. Boogie, however, is dealing with every issue known to a basketball player, namely foul trouble and a sprained ankle. He is doubtful on Wednesday's tiff vs Dallas so unless you can make sure just before tip-off if the Pels will give Cousins a go, that salary should go to someone else.

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks: Nov. 25, 2016
Kevin Love, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers ($7,800)
Kevin Love is a superstar and the Cavs are finally using him like one. Love has just exploded for 62 fantasy points on the Portland Trail Blazers and I'm excited to know what he can do against Dallas. Granted, the chance of this being a blowout is quite high (Vegas Insider has Cleveland as a -14.5 favorite) but he might still have some heat left after that ridiculous first quarter outburst. Love Read More
OK, I know it's early in the season but we have to do this nonetheless. Some of the guys are playing so poorly we can't blame owners if they have gotten rid of them already. (Hello, Nikola Jokic!) Some, however, are just "beasting" from out of nowhere and some of them are probably available in your leagues you have got to drop someone for these surprise studs.
Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ers
If there are any questions about how good Joel Embiid is, I reckon all of them are answered Read More
After Paul Millsap, Anthony Davis, Blake Griffin and Kristaps Porzingis (not to mention players with multiple eligibility like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green), who's next? Here's your guide to finding underrated fantasy options at power forward:
Seen Better Days?
Pau Gasol, San Antonio Spurs
Gasol may not be the efficient offensive machine he once was but he is still a solid power forward with multi-category contribution potential. Playing at a shade under 32 minutes last Read More
1. Klay Thompson in 2016 Rio Olympics so far...
China: 1-6 FG, 0-3 from three
Venezuela: 0-5 FG, 0-4 from three
Australia: 2-9 FG, 2-6 from three
Serbia: 1-6 FG, 1-3 from three
2. LeBron may be worth $33 M now but...
Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson could be worth more when they signed their deals in 1997 and 1981, respectively. Jordan's salary was $33M for 1997-98, which is worth about $50 million today; on the other hand, Magic had his $25 M a year 35 years ago, and that could've been worth Read More
After a busy week of free agency, most of the dust has settled. Amidst the surprise signings and crazy figures, which big free agency names trend up or down in 2016 Fantasy Basketball after signing new contracts? Let's take a look at 10 of them:
1. Kevin Durant joins Golden State Warriors
Perhaps the biggest free agency signing of the year, Kevin Durant decided to join forces with the Splash Brothers and Draymond Green. That's pretty good for KD's championship aspirations but Read More
Feb. 21, 2016-- DFS Best Value Picks
LeBron James, SF ($9,700)
You can either go with Russell Westbrook or Kevin Durant here but LeBron James is cheaper while averaging almost the same Fantasy Points over the past 10 games as Westbrook. It seems Tyronn Lue's offense has awoken the fantasy beast in "The King". The only "mishap" in the past 10 is the Jan. 27 game in Phoenix, where the four-time MVP scored "only" 37.25 FP.
Pau Gasol, C, ($8,500)
I'm going with Pau Gasol for two Read More
