It wasn’t just my “locks, it was every player except Doncic and Kanter. I had Bryn Forbes, I’m still not 100% certain he was in the arena. Maxi Kleber looked lost on on offense and he was getting bullied on defense. I got another terrible night from Ben Simmons too, he finished with 7 points 6 assists and 8 rebounds. Bleacher Read More

Daily Fantasy Notes– Nov. 12, 2019

It seems like Rajon Rondo is still going to help a lot of fantasy teams in assists. With dimes being the hardest category to recover from (only a total of 36 players are averaging at least FIVE assists per game this season), Rondo's 41.2% career AST rate will come in handy.  In his first game for the Lakers this season, Rondo delivered SEVEN assists plus six rebounds in only 14 minutes of play.

1.) Luka Doncic, PG, Dallas Mavericks (Yahoo ADP: 19.6) Doncic is a risk taking at that spot perhaps at least a round too early.

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Wednesday– October 17, 2018

Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF, Milwaukee Bucks

First off, you need someone that you can never go wrong with. You have lots of options including reigning MVP James Harden and Anthony Davis. Giannis, though, should be taking this season a little bit personally.

(As some sort of comparison, Freak had 37 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals with outstanding efficiency on his first game last year. Harden had 27 points, 6 rebounds, 11 assists, 1 steal, 3 treys; AD had 33 points, 18 rebounds, 1 Read More
