5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS April 11, 2021

1.) Lauri Markannen, PF/C, Chicago Bulls Yahoo: $13; DraftKings: $4,300 Markannen has not been playing well lately, but he still plays enough minutes to be potentially relevant. Still, with three out of five games under 20 FP, he also has the same potential to flame out. But with his salary so low, he is still worth a look in certain matchups. 2.) Terrence Mann, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers Yahoo: $12; DraftKings: $4,900 Kawhi Leonard will be taking a rest Sunday so that opens up more minutes Read More

Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS April 5, 2021

1.) Dean Wade, PF, Cleveland Cavaliers Yahoo: $12; DraftKings: $4,900; FanDuel: $4,500 Tony Dejak, AP Wade has been picking up a lot of playing time for the Cavaliers lately and even though the results have been mixed, it's still encouraging. He is averaging 8.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, two dimes, and 1.8 "stocks." If not for the horrible game versus Miami, those numbers would have been better. Fortunately, Wade has time to turn things around against a Spurs team who's among the worst in Read More

What is a Triple-Double in Basketball?

If you have played fantasy basketball, you’ll know how rare a triple-double is. While scoring may be the most celebrated statistic in the sport, winning a game involves more than just putting the ball through the hoop. For example, grabbing the most rebounds means you are giving your team more chances to score. Piling up assists means you’re setting your teammates up so they can score. A basketball player should be skilled enough to perform any of these offensive statistics, but it’s easier Read More

5 Best Bargain Options For DraftKings NBA DFS Evening Slate

Choosing bargains to round up your DFS roster is a hit or miss. But with a three-game slate that features new-look rosters, we could unearth some hidden gems here and there. 1.) Chasson Randle, PG, Orlando Magic Salary: $4,300 Randle is admittedly not a high-ceiling player, but with the Magic short-handed in basically every position, he saw himself at the helm against Portland. He was mediocre--tallying 10 points, two rebounds, two dimes, and a steal-- but he played 27 minutes and his backup Karim Read More

5 Best Bargain Options For DraftKings NBA DFS

1.) Hamidou Diallo, SG/SF, Detroit Pistons Salary: $4,900 Diallo is going to be a part of the Pistons' future and even though he only played 18 minutes the last time, he will have plenty of run down the stretch. The bad news is, we don't exactly know when. Detroit will be up against the defensively-challenged Wizards tomorrow so that's a pretty good time to start. 2.) Danny Green, SF, Philadelphia 76ers Salary: $4,700 How about DG going for 14.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.5 "stocks" over the Read More

5 No-Brainer Picks For NBA DFS March 21, 2020

1.) Dennis Schroder, PG, Los Angeles Lakers It sucks to see LeBron James go down like that and worse, he could miss a couple of weeks with that high ankle sprain. Fantasy-wise, a lot of players will benefit from the King's absence. Schroder will handle the ball a lot and some usage also trickles to Kyle Kuzma and Talen Horton-Tucker. That said, my money is on Schroder to bounce back from a sub-par outing against Atlanta. 2.) Pascal Siakam, C, Toronto Raptors Probably a desperation move, Nick Nurse Read More

5 Best Bargains for NBA DFS March 19, 2021

1.) Nicholas Claxton, C, Brooklyn Nets DeAndre Jordan may be the starter and plays slightly more minutes, but Claxton is not a bad choice at a lesser price. He is averaging over 8 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks over the past three with a bonus dime and steal here and there. 2.) Tomas Satoransky, PG, Chicago Bulls Sato has been playing a lot of minutes for the Bulls lately averaging 10 points and 7 dimes over the past three games. He claimed the starting job over Coby White and has been playing Read More

5 Best BarGain Picks For NBA DFS March 14, 2021

All of my 5 picks for March 13 were all pretty solid, starting with Jrue Holiday's 18-8-2 plus 2 steals and 1 block stat line. Anthony Edwards also did pretty well, contributing 21-8-3 plus a steal. Even though Chris Boucher, Norman Powell, and Jerami Grant weren't bad, they all failed to get 30 FP, which is a bummer. Unless you had Rui Hachimura and Russell Westbrook on your Saturday roster, you probably have a hard time maneuvering. Let's see if we can sift out 5 bargain options that could end Read More

5 No-Brainer Picks For NBA DFS March 13, 2021

I did a similar article yesterday and it did went out well for the most part. For Friday night's slate, I suggested Russell Westbrook, Dwight Howard, Shake Milton, Kelly Olynyk, and Rudy Gay. All did exceptionally well except Howard, who "only" had 6 points and 10 rebounds plus extras. The reason for that is the return of Joel Embiid. Milton, KO, and Gay all hovered around 30 FP, while I felt Russ could have done more if the game did not go out of hand early. Overall, it was above average so let's Read More

5 Players Who Should Be ON Your DFS Roster For March 12, 2021

I did offer 5 bargain options for last night with mixed results. If you happen to take up the cue and start Theo Maledon and Robert Williams, you must have won your league. Maledon had 11 points, four rebounds, and nine assists (although the lack of defensive stats is a bummer) while Timelord swatted six shots on top of two points, four rebounds, four assists, and a steal. The other picks were Elfrid Payton, Shake Milton, and Terence Davis II and it was TD2 who flamed out in the one-point loss to Read More
