Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ers
After missing almost a month, Embiid returned and hasn't missed a beat. He is averaging 25 points, 15.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2 blocks over a two-game span. Embiid will once again be leaned upon more with Jimmy Butler and Ben Simmons possibly out.
DeMar DeRozan, SF, San Antonio Spurs
DeRozan has three games out of the last four with at least 48 FP and looks like in the midst of a strong run. It's not that he's scoring, which Read More
Who To Pick And Avoid For NBA DFS Saturday-- March 2, 2019
Who To Pick
Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder
Russ is still doing Westbrook things and now that PG is sidelined ahead of Saturday's matchup with San Antonio, look for Westbrook's usage to skyrocket. He had a 24-assist game this season versus the Spurs so he has proven he can bring his A-game against this team.
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Golden State Warriors
Cousins is a favorite of mine because he can pile up fantasy points in a Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Saturday:
James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets
I'm trying to be a contrarian here with the Harden pick and Houston unexpectedly struggling on offense. The Beard still put up elite numbers (26.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.6 steals) but not the jaw-dropping lines we see from him in seasons past.
What does that mean? That means he is due for an explosive showing and it could come at the expense of the Spurs, who is 23rd in the league when it comes to Read More
Building a DFS roster in the NBA Playoffs proves to be trickier than most nights but we welcome the challenge. Here are 3 players that should not be missing on any lineups for the two-game slate this Friday:
Draymond Green, PF/C, Golden State Warriors
Call DG what you want, but you can make a case for him as the Warriors' MVP so far in the playoffs. The 2017 DPOY is averaging a triple-double in the WCSF series (18 points, 12.0 rebounds, 11.5 assists, 2.0 steals, 2.0 blocks and 1.5 3-pointers) and Read More
Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers ($9,300)
Dame has been a usage monster since Jusuf Nurkic went down and he has not disappointed DFS owners. He has hit at least 40.7 fantasy points in the past seven games with a high of 55.3 FP. Almost the entire offensive load will practically be on his shoulders, so expect Lillard to be at the 28-point, 6-rebound, 7.5-assist and over 4 trey-a-game average he's had in the past four games.
Rajon Rondo, New Orleans Pelicans ($5,600)
After dropping Read More
NBA Playoffs Stats Of The Day-- April 22, 2017
1. Rajon Rondo is awesome and if he doesn't come back, this series will be over... fast...
Bulls finish with 14 assists---or the same number Rondo had in Game 2.

2. More Rondo awesomeness...
Rajon Rondo had rebounded more Bulls' misses in this series (7) than C's bigs Amir Johnson, Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Zeller combined (6).

Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day
1. Let's talk Warriors.
The Dubs made history in their home game vs Knicks by:
assisting on all 26 first half field goals
assisting on 91% of their TOTAL field goals
and in case you're wondering that's 41 out of 45 FGs
2. 'Tis a good season for Fantasy Basketball.
Four players are currently averaging at least 7 points and 7 rebounds per game, more than any other season. They are LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Draymond Green. Rajon Read More
