Best Value Picks For NBA DFS March 3, 2020

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

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 27, 2020

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

3 players to build your DraftKings lineup around. Dec 31st

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

5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Dec. 9, 2019

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

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Monday– March 11, 2019

The Studs
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

Best Players To Draft In Fantasy Basketball

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

5 Must-Start Players For NBA DFS Monday– Dec. 25, 2017

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

NBA DFS Basketball Best Value Picks– Nov. 24, 2017

The Studs

Victor Oladipo, PG/SG, Indiana Pacers ($8,000)
Oladipo has been a monster this season and has just set career-highs in rebounds and steals in back-to-back games. The former Hoosier has topped at least 40 FP in 5 of his last 10 plus they will be facing a Raptors team that is among the league's worst in stopping opposing shooting guards.
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder ($8,000)
PG has been on a roll the last three games including back-to-back 50FP games against New Orleans and Golden State. Read More

NBA DFS Fantasy Basketball Best Value Picks– Nov. 20, 2017

The Studs

Damian Lillard, PG, Portland Trail Blazers ($8,300)
Dame has been off with his shot lately and is facing a stout defensive team in Memphis. That doesn't mean you shouldn't consider him. Perennial All-Stars like Lillard go off at the slightest hints and his salary is the lowest since the start of November. Plus, the Grizzlies won't be playing Mike Conley because of an Achilles issue so Lillard has one less problem there.
Jimmy Butler, SG, Minnesota Timberwolves ($7,500)
Butler has Read More

NBA DFS Best Value Picks– April 9, 2017

NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- April 9, 2017
The Studs

Russell Westbrook, PG, OKC Thunder ($13,900)
I usually stay out of Russell Westbrook's way because of his salary. At this point, though, I have to make an exception. No one in Denver can stay in front of Westbrook and with him hungrier than ever to get that historic 42nd double-double, I just think he will come up with a 70-80 FP game.
Kevin Love, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers ($7,800)
Cleveland is stumbling to the playoffs and now that Kyrie Irving Read More
