I hope you did your diligence last March 9 and checked the availability of your guys. Turns out the Bucks gave this game away by sitting out four of their five starters and one of their most dynamic players coming off that bench, including three in my suggestions. That said, all of the picks I gave other than the grounded Bucks did absolutely well. Outside of Eric Bledsoe, I did suggest the starting Hornets backcourt and they were awesome, helped by a double-overtime game and playing another team Read More
It was a nice 11-game Sunday and as a basketball fan, that's all you can ask for.
I did offer my thoughts on the early schedule, and I was pretty much on point except with Kawhi Leonard. Leonard had 27 points but only two rebounds and an assist. That's not going to cut it if he is your number one guy. If you had Jrue Holiday, then that's the game-changer as he finished with 37-9-8 plus a steal and a block.
Now to the rest of the games, again everyone was pretty solid except if you followed through Read More
Season-long fantasy basketball is a tricky business that combines foresight and sheer luck. The most important key to winning your league is, not on the first two rounds or a midseason stash, but somehow finding someone that vastly outperforms his Average Draft Position (ADP). You do that and you win your league. That's it. Show's over.
Now, if you have one or two or three of these players, you definitely are among the top teams in your league. If you don't get lazy and set your lineup night in Read More
1.) Will Barton, SF, Denver Nuggets Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports For Barton this season, consistency is the name of the game. Of the 11 games he appeared in, he only had two fantasy duds. The rest, he is averaging 16.8 points, 8.4 rebounds, and three assists plus defensive extras. Long story short, if you're playing a game of chance, Barton is probably going to give you good numbers than bad ones. 2.) Chris Paul, PG, OKC Thunder As long as CP3 is priced like this ($26 at Yahoo, Read More
It pays to be patient in fantasy basketball but if you can manage to squeeze in a transaction or two to bolster your chances, then why not? Here are some of the names you should look at the waiver wire.
1.) Isaiah Thomas, PG, Washington Wizards The Wizards have close to nothing when it comes to guard play allowing Isaiah Thomas to do anything he wants within a 20-minute limite. In the two games since he came back, IT is averaging 16.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 7.5 assists with SIX total threes Read More
It's a three-game Tuesday so we're going bargain-hunting again. Here are 5 of the best bargain options for April 16, 2019: 1.) Danny Green, SG, Toronto Raptors Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports The Raptors could not afford to lose this one so they are going to go all-out and perhaps shorten their rotation. Green played 33 minutes in Game 1 and had 13 points and three rebounds but he will have to do more than that to secure a win. As a grizzled playoff vet, I don't have any doubts that Read More
Constructing a lineup in daily fantasy basketball is half knowledge and half gut feel. Once you had the knowledge part down to pat, you may want to resort to your intuition especially when you had to choose between players that make the most sense. That is especially true when we have a pretty hectic 8-game slate. So without much ado, here is our best fantasy basketball lineup for today:
Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets
You can't go wrong with them studs (KAT and Luka are all playing) Read More
Draymond Green, PF/C, Golden State Warriors ($7,500)
Draymond had a monster statistical night against Memphis which, I think, will never be repeated in a while. Green had 12 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 STEALS, and 5 blocks. Golden State will be in Oklahoma City Saturday night and we just hope this rivalry game will bring out the best once again in the Michigan State alum. Zaza Pachulia won't likely be around against the Thunder, so he truly has a chance.
Goran Dragic, PG, Miami Heat Read More

Gordon Hayward, SF, Utah Jazz ($7,700)
The Jazz will probably miss George Hill tonight because of thumb sprain so most of his Usage should go to Gordon Hayward. Hayward has hit his stride lately, hitting over 36 Fantasy Points in the last six games capped by a 50-FP outing against Miami. There's a big chance he'll hit around that vicinity again against Denver.
Marc Gasol, C, Memphis Grizzlies ($7,100)

January 28, 2015-- DFS Basketball Best Value Picks
Paul Millsap, PF ($8,300)
Kyle Korver, Jeff Teague, and Al Horford has struggled and all but one force remains constant with the Atlanta Hawks: This Paul Millsap guy. What's impressive about Millsap is not only the consistency, he does his work even if his minutes run low. Half of his last ten games saw Millsap on limited high-20's runs, but that hasn't stopped him from dropping 35, 30.75, 36, 44, and 42.75 fantasy points on those occasions.
