1.) Hamidou Diallo, SG/SF, Detroit Pistons
Diallo is going to be a part of the Pistons' future and even though he only played 18 minutes the last time, he will have plenty of run down the stretch. The bad news is, we don't exactly know when. Detroit will be up against the defensively-challenged Wizards tomorrow so that's a pretty good time to start.
2.) Danny Green, SF, Philadelphia 76ers
How about DG going for 14.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.5 "stocks" over the Read More
The best part about yesterday's games is that the big guns came to play. Luka Doncic ended his campaign in style, Kawhi Leonard was in beast mode, while Jamaal Murray and Donovan Mitchell continue their insane and historic duel. Fred VanVleet and Nikola Jokic were also stellar.
Now, if you had Montrezl Harrell and Seth Curry in your rosters as bargains, that might set your team back a little. Harrell basically did nothing while it would be better off if you selected Trey Burke instead of Curry in Read More
Jayson Tatum was an easy call to make as a stud in my last suggestions list and he did not disappoint. He had 34-4-8 plus two steals and a block, which nears 60 FP in all platforms.
And Jusuf Nurkic? Well, make it two monster games in a row-- 30-9-5 plus two steals and a block. Nurk will approach top-tier status in no time so his days as a Middle Man in my book are numbered.
Finally, my faith in Caris LeVert has been rewarded! I don't care if it came against the Wizards but I'm not complaining against Read More
John Collins made sure I keep my streak of consecutive flame-outs in the studs department, after totaling only 12 points, three rebounds, an assists, a steal, a block, and five turnovers in the huge defeat at the hands of the Grizzlies.
Domantas Sabonis almost made it two horrible stud selections on the same day. Fortunately, the first-time All-Star recovered just in time, scoring eight consecutive points at one point in the fourth, to finish with 14-11-5 plus a steal and a block.
Not to mention Read More
It's been days since I last had my last value picks so there's no point on recapping what transpired five days ago. What I would like to start with are my thoughts on Joel Embiid and the Sixers, with their All-Star center apparently injuring his right shoulder.
Nobody wants this to happen but when it does, fantasy owners need to capitalize. With Ben Simmons still nursing a bad back, more responsibilities fall on the shoulder of Al Horford and Tobias Harris. Horford and Harris will be Read More
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
1.) Kris Dunn, PG, Chicago Bulls
Yahoo: $12; DraftKings: $5,100
The other "KD" has solidified himself as a permanent starter under Jim Boylen with three-game averages of 11.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 2.3 steals.
That's not eye-popping but considering he is only worth $12 on Yahoo, he is worth the risk in my opinion. (At DK, not so much.) Said risk is that they were playing the Raptors, who just came off a loss against the Sixers so they may be facing a better and more motivated team 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
If you could redo the draft all over again, would you have picked the same players or are you ready to move on? Well, just to put it out there, there is no such thing as a perfect draft but I am still doing well in my leagues so the answer would be kind of in the middle.
That said, there are certain players who are can't miss, which means if they somehow fall in your lap, you better not take five seconds before you pull the damn trigger. What we are going to do is go through six rounds of drafting Read More
1. LeBron James, SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
LBJ is among the highest-priced players, make no mistake about it. That is only reasonable because he still is the best player in the world, and among the top-3 in fantasy right now. Factor in the crazy atmosphere in this 2016 Finals matchup and you'll probably see the best game James played this season. He is basically averaging a triple-double these days but expect The King to be more assertive in this primetime matchup. There are a lot of high-priced stars Read More
