Top 5 Candidates For 2020 Most Improved Player

If the season is officially over, who are your candidates for Most Improved Player? Well, that's a tough question since the "Most Improved" tag can simply be theoretical.

Who knows, but every young star appearing on this list definitely has a case. Let's start with someone from the most pleasant surprise teams, the Oklahoma City Thunder: 1.) Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS March 6, 2020

The last time I did a value picks article, I broke my streak of consecutive flame-outs at the stud department. (Bradley Beal and Lonzo Ball both went off for around 50 FP.) Bad news is, my prediction on Steven Adams and Montrezl Harrell were off with both guys churning out subpar performances against each other. It was so bad I'm not inclined to show their stats from March 3rd. Damion Lee somehow managed to disappoint me but Harry Giles III was pretty solid-- going for 13 points and six rebounds Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 21, 2020

I hope you logged early to check out the injury news before the Nets-Sixers game and made the necessary adjustment. Well, without Ben Simmons, that pretty much made Joel Embiid a must-roster and he did not disappoint. Here's a recap of my picks for Feb. 20. Joel, Joel, Joel. Embiid took advantage of Simmons absence and brutalized Brooklyn. JoJo finished with 39 points, 16 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks. Same thing with Bam Adebayo. History repeated itself with Bam torching the Read More

Monday Recap Nikola Vucevic   41 FPTs     27P/6R/1A/2S Joe Ingles   24.75 FPTs  10P/5A/5R/1B Kendrick Nunn    21 FPTs   14P/3A/2R Orlando Pinstriped Post Vucevic had a good game in a surprise loss to the Hawks. He scored 27 points but he failed to reach his average rebound mark, he only had 6 boards. I am happy with Nikola’s production, 41 fantasy points is right on his average. Ingles reached his fantasy average Monday night, but he had a bad game. I was worried this game was going Read More

Nikola Jokic and the Best Value Picks for NBA DFS Monday-- Mar. 4, 2019
The Studs
Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets

The best matchups to choose are those between playoff-bound teams in the West, exactly what Nuggets v Spurs brings. Jokic would be the best big man in this outing, no disrespect to LaMarcus Aldridge, and is a consistent triple-double threat. He played only 22 foul-plagued minutes and still contributed 20-9-7 with 2 steals and 2 blocks in his last outing. If he gets the foul problem Read More
