Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Saturday:
James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets
I'm trying to be a contrarian here with the Harden pick and Houston unexpectedly struggling on offense. The Beard still put up elite numbers (26.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.6 steals) but not the jaw-dropping lines we see from him in seasons past.
What does that mean? That means he is due for an explosive showing and it could come at the expense of the Spurs, who is 23rd in the league when it comes to Read More
Players To Own:
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
Russell Westbrook suffered a terrible ankle sprain late in the game against the Pelicans and will likely be a scratch Wednesday versus Cleveland. That would mean PG13 will be called upon to carry more of the load which he is not a stranger of. He may not be scoring much over his last 5 (17 points per game) but all the other numbers (7.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.6 steals, and 1.4 blocks) are superb. Without Westbrook, expect George to look for his Read More
Andre Drummond, C, DET ($10,600)
How in the world is Drummond not an all-star? He continues to be the best rebounder in basketball, grabbing 15.7 a game and 21 in Monday’s loss to the Pelicans. If he can grab that many boards against Anthony Davis, how many can he get tonight against the Hawks? He and Davis are far and away better than any other centers available tonight.
Kyle Lowry, PG, TOR ($7,600)
Lowry recorded 22 points (8-17 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists, four rebounds and two steals Read More
Anthony Davis, C, NOP ($11,700)
Davis should be well-rested after the last Pelicans’ game was postponed due to a leak in the roof. He gets the 76ers tonight and as usual, Joel Embiid is a GTD. If Embiid can’t go, it should make it an easy night for Davis who is averaging 51.2 FPPG. He’s clearly benefited from Demarcus Cousins’ absence so far.
Ricky Rubio, PG, UTA ($8,000)
Rubio is quietly having an incredible season. Does anyone realize he’s getting 27.5 FPPG, including 29 points (8-16 Read More
NBA DFS Best Value Picks-- Dec. 26, 2016
We have 11 games so plenty of fish in the sea to choose from. But who will give you the most value?
Nicolas Batum, SG/SF, Charlotte Hornets ($7,800)
Batum has been messing around lately and the best thing about him is, he does not rely on points to get value (even though that helps, too). The Frenchman has dropped over 40 fantasy points in four of the last five including a triple-double in the win over Chicago. Brooklyn is not exactly the Read More
It's very seldom for young studs to go right on and be statistically dominant right away. As such, growing pains are to expected, and it sometimes take very long, too.
However, more often than not, these young players have shown capabilities that sometimes belie their ages. They may be 15-20 minute rotation guys now or buried at the end of the bench for long stretches or being taken for the ride as soon as they boarded the ship. Regardless, let's stop the guessing game and get right to it.

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Advice March 16, Sunday, 10 Games
Russell Westbrook, PG ($12,600)
While James Harden has considerably cooled recently, Russell Westbrook showed no signs of slowing down. Another triple-double in the last outing, his sixth in eight games, and a 65.5 FP performance.
I'd still take my chances.
Anthony Davis, PF ($11,000)
He left in the early fourth in the game against Brooklyn but Davis passed a concussion test, prohibiting him from missing any Read More
As busy as teams are right now, I would've mistaken everything as a February trade deadline rush. Clearly, all the General Managers pulled the trigger for one reason and one reason only: for the improvement of the team.
For fantasy owners, we couldn't care less. (Actually, we do, but not to the fullest sense.) All we wanted is see what these transactions do or will do to our teams and then act like a smart GM will do.
The trade that went through Friday was minor compared to the one that swung 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.
After losing key pieces in the offseason through trades (Jeremy Lin to LAL) and free agency (Chandler Parsons to Dallas), nobody gave Houston much of a chance in a stacked conference. As it turns out, the Rockets are winning Read More
