NBA DFS Aug. 24, 2020– Bargain Picks To Consider

Serge Ibaka was the centerpiece of the bargain picks that I recommended the last time as he completely dominated Brooklyn in only 19 minutes. He came up with a mind-boggling 27 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, and two blocks. The weakest link was Seth Curry, but for someone who is at the minimum, hovering around the 20 FP is not too bad. Shake Milton (14 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal), Marcus Morris (nine points, five rebounds, two assists, one block), and Josh Richardson (14 points, Read More

NBA DFS Aug. 23, 2020: Bargain Picks To Consider

I pretty much aced four of the five bargain picks yesterday, with the only casualty being James Ennis. Gary Clark took over the job and was solid (6 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, two steals) on the near-minimum range. I also suggested Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Chris Paul, who I figured will play with desperation, and I hit the bulls-eye. A team that is built around James Harden, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, another stud, with the value picks I suggested, and that should be enough to win most 50-50s Read More

NBA DFS Aug. 22, 2020: 5 Bargain Picks To Consider

Four playoff games, for Game 3s will be on hand on Saturday afternoon, so who should be at the top of your priority list? Well, the Rockets are in no hurry to bring Russell Westbrook back after leading the Thunder, 2-0, so James Harden almost has a 100% chance to get his 50 FP. On the other hand, Oklahoma City should be playing with desperation so I think it's a good idea to have Chris Paul or Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. The ones that I am going to avoid like the plague would be Jusuf Nurkic and CJ Read More

What Is the NBA Average Height In the NBA By Position?

The NBA, make no mistake about it, is a tall player's league and is traditionally dominated by men of gigantic size and height. If you're 7-feet, there is a 17% chance that you'd be in the NBA. That's about 243 times greater than someone at the 6-foot-6 to 6-foot-8 range, near the overall average height in the NBA! Of course, we all know height is not everything. In recent years, guards such as Steph Curry and Steve Nash before him have run amok. Between them, four MVPs were awarded plus 13 Read More

NBA DFS Value Picks For Aug. 8, 2020

It's a five-game Friday, so let's take a look at what we can work with as DFS value picks for Aug. 8, 2020. The Studs DeAndre Ayton, PF/C, Suns Yahoo: $36 DraftKings: $7,700 FanDuel: $7,800 There are teams that are trying to hide their cards and there are teams going all out in the bubble. Phoenix is one of the latter.  Hoping for a chance at a playoff spot, the Suns will be playing at their best in their remaining games, that's why I feel DeAndre Ayton should be one of those guys you shouldn't Read More

NBA DFS Value Picks For Aug. 3, 2020

Jayson Tatum was an easy call to make as a stud in my last suggestions list and he did not disappoint. He had 34-4-8 plus two steals and a block, which nears 60 FP in all platforms. And Jusuf Nurkic? Well, make it two monster games in a row-- 30-9-5 plus two steals and a block. Nurk will approach top-tier status in no time so his days as a Middle Man in my book are numbered. Finally, my faith in Caris LeVert has been rewarded! I don't care if it came against the Wizards but I'm not complaining against Read More

NBA DFS Value Picks For Aug. 2, 2020

I pretty much bummed out my suggestions the last time out, with Brandon Ingram, Marcus Morris, and JJ Redick all struggling. Malcolm Brogdon was still out because of cervical strain and in his place, Aaron Holiday had a pretty solid game. We have six games for Sunday so that gives me a lot to work with and regroup.  Here are my NBA DFS value picks for Aug. 2, 2020. The Studs Jayson Tatum, SF/PF, Celtics Yahoo: $42 Draftings: $8,200 FanDuel:$8,200 I know Giannis Antetokounmpo and a lot of top-dollar Read More

NBA DFS Value Picks For August 1, 2020

The  second day of the NBA bubble in Orlando is once again a fantasy minefield, but there's catch: you should know where to look. There's no reason why the third day isn't any better. But hey, I'll let you know how I did Friday, starting with my five suggestions.  After that, I'll go right om who I think are the best NBA DFS value picks for August 1, 2020. From what I have suggested, I was right in all of them maybe except Caris LeVert. I said I would be disappointed if LeVert doesn't give me Read More

NBA DFS Best Value Picks For July 31, 2020

The NBA restart is finally upon us and while it was not pretty, I am just relieved basketball is back. The games were full of sloppy plays-- kind of what we expect after a four-month hiatus-- but both came down to the wire and the big-time players came to play. "Sloppy" is not just a word I'd describe the first two games in the bubble. I would also use that to describe two of my five choices, or shall we say suggestions, in the last article. Those were Reggie Jackson and Ivica Zubac who both fizzled Read More

10 Players To Watch Out For In NBA Restart Plus DFS Targets For July 30

At long last, the NBA finally returns and it will feature matchups between the Pels and Jazz plus Lakers and Clippers. The rules regarding the Orlando bubble is obviously a little different but when it comes to DFS, there's not much that's changes. What I can say, though, is that there will be players that have multiplied their values in the bubble. Some of the players that opted out opened up the way for others to step up to an increased role. We will take a look at 10 of these players and sneak Read More
