Al Horford, C, Boston Celtics
Horford's numbers are never eye-popping but more so this season. He hasn't had double-digit rebounds since October 20 and his season-high in points is only 19. So why would you pick him up to start for your DFS roster? Because his best fantasy game came against the Raptors on October 19th, where he amassed 14 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists. A matchup against the best of the East may ignite some fire for the veteran. Plus, his modest salary certainly doesn't Read More
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.

This is the first installment of FB101's DFS Basketball Value Picks so I better be right. Russell Westbrook is going to be on a mission this year and in his first game, we should Read More
So far this season, I think we have already segregated the weeds from the wheat, the men from the boys, if you will. Out West, two teams have exactly done that-- not only in the standings-- but their style of play as well: the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors.
