5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS March 11, 2021

I did recommend 3 bargain options for last night's games, and although none of them turned out to be miracle workers, all of them put up solid games. Justise Winslow was his usual stat-stuffing self (nine points, six rebounds, four assists, one steal) while Maxi Kleber (11 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists) and De'Anthony Melton (11 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals) were also helpful. Now, could I repeat the same luck for an 11-game slate? Let's see. 1.) Theo Maledon, PG/SG, OKC Thunder For Read More

3 Best Bargains For NBA DFS March 10, 2021

The NBA is back after a quick break with a short two-game slate. There isn't much to go around, but there are a number of bargain options to round up your DFS roster. 1.) Justise Winslow, SF, Memphis Grizzlies Winslow has been up and down since his return but the only constant is his playing time. The former lottery pick has played at least 20 minutes a game with varying results. We hope the break helped him recuperate, but he is an integral part of the Grizzlies rotation. He just needs to give Read More

5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021

1.) Michael Carter-Williams, PG, Orlando Magic Yahoo: $14; DrafftKings: $5,500; FanDuel: $4,500 MCW has not only cracked the rotation but is the primary PG option for a decimated Magic team. He has not always been a good shooter and sometimes his shot selection is suspect, but he fills up the stat sheet every now and then. Case on point: Even with an atrocious 2-for-13 shooting vs the Warriors, he contributed four rebounds, five assists, a steal, and two blocks. 2.) Cam Reddish, SG/SF, Atlanta Read More

5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Feb. 19, 2021

1.) Facundo Campazzo, PG/SG, Denver Nuggets Yahoo: $12; DraftKings: $4,000; FanDuel: $4,200 With so many injuries in the Nuggets backcourt, they are forced to lean on international veteran Facundo Campazzo in the latest string of games. The Argentine did not disappoint, scoring double-digits in each of the last three games plus a total of 12 dimes and six steals. I say that's not bad at all. 2.) Cam Reddish, SG/SF, Denver Nuggets Yahoo: $11; DraftKings: $4,500; FanDuel: $4,500 Reddish has hit Read More

5 Best Bargain Options for NBA DFS Feb. 5, 2021

1.) Theo Maledon, SG, OKC Thunder DraftKings: $5,000; FanDuel: $4,800; Yahoo: $14 With injuries to George Hill and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Maledon assumed the ballhandling duties for the Thunder. While he won't probably be the next coming of Allen Iverson scoring-wise, Maledon has been stuffing the stat sheet, totaling six steals, plus three rebounds, four dimes, and a block in the victory against Houston. Still without Hill and SGA plus Lu Dort, Maledon will continue to be a DFS gem. His OKC Read More

Who to Pick and Avoid For NBA DFS Feb 3, 2021

My prediction about who to pick and avoid for the studs went south as Kevin Durant gave way to a vintage Kyrie Irving performance. Steph Curry proved me wrong with 38 markers along with 11 boards and 8 dimes. For the mid-tier salaries, Enes Kanter delivered with another double-double performance while Evan Fournier (my AVOID pick) was pretty decent. On my bargains picks, it was Xavier Tillman and DeAnthony Melton who provided the decent numbers. But then again, RoCo had 19 points and 9 rebounds Read More

7 Shortest Basketball Players In NBA History That Prove Size Does Not Always Matter

What is the average height for men in USA? The answer: 5 feet 9 inches. Astoundingly, the current average NBA height is 6 feet 7 inches; for this reason, this is why basketball is always viewed as a big man's game. But every now and then, there are players that lack ceiling that proves it's not all about height when it comes to impact on the basketball court. Here are 5 of the shortest players in NBA history. 7.) Keith Jennings The casual NBA fan probably doesn't know who Keith Jennings was, Read More

Who to Pick and Avoid For NBA DFS Feb 2, 2021

Who to Pick (Studs): Kevin Durant, SF/PF, Brooklyn Nets KD has been rolling in the past five games to the tune of 31.6 points, 8.2 rebounds, 5 dimes, and 2.2 blocks. He also made 15 treys during that time with crazy efficiency. Even if he's not shooting well, Durant does other things, just like the 13-rebound, 5-assist game in the close win against Miami. Who to Avoid (Studs): Steph Curry, PG/SG, Golden State Warriors It's always hard to pick against a scorer as explosive as Steph, but the visiting Read More

Who to Pick and Who to Avoid For NBA DFS Feb. 1, 2021

The Studs Who to pick: If you're looking for someone to build your team around, I think it comes down to Nikola Jokic or Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak is basically averaging 30-15-7 over the past five games while Joker is good for 30-12-5 over the past six. You couldn't ask for more if you want consistency. But, if I have to pick, who gets the nod? I'd probably go with Jokic on this one. Giannis gets a questionable tag going into Monday night's game with Portland and while that could just Read More

Best Value PiCks For NBA DFS Jan. 29, 2021

The Studs Domantas Sabonis, PF/C, Pacers Yahoo: $44; DraftKings: $9,200; FanDuel: $9,200 If not for the knee injury he suffered in the Raptors game, Sabonis would have had better averages. Well, he did come back with a vengeance-- a triple-double no less against Charlotte. We know the Hornets are not stopping dynamic interior players like Domas so feel free to tap his services. Nikola Jokic, C, Nuggets Yahoo: $54; DraftKings: $10,100; FanDuel: $11,200 The worst that Jokic could do is the low-40s Read More
