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
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards
Beal was a bit of a disappoint fantasy-wise against Atlanta the last time out but that's because they basically blew the Hawks out of the water. That won't happen against a really good Thunder team on Monday and I'd like to throw it out there that Beal torched OKC for 41 last Jan. 25.
The first-time All-Star is averaging 26.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 1.2 steals over the past 30 days.
Lou Williams, SG/PG, Los Angeles Clippers

5 Players To Avoid In NBA DFS-- March 29, 2017
1. DeMarcus Cousins, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans ($9,600) vs Mavericks
Both DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis average over 50 fantasy points in the past 10 days. Boogie, however, is dealing with every issue known to a basketball player, namely foul trouble and a sprained ankle. He is doubtful on Wednesday's tiff vs Dallas so unless you can make sure just before tip-off if the Pels will give Cousins a go, that salary should go to someone else.

I have just listed my surprise standouts in the 2016 NBA Summer League and now it's time to do the opposite and tally the disappointments. I may just be overreacting to some of them because I expected a lot more from these guys but that's the price to pay if you're picked at the top of the lottery. There you go, I spilled all the beans.
Here are my 5 disappointments in the 2016 NBA Summer League:
1. Buddy Hield, SG, New Orleans Pelicans
Hield was tabbed the most NBA ready out of ANY player Read More
Rookies are not usually looked upon to deliver the goods right off the bat but sometimes it's necessary. It's either the team hands them the keys right away (minutes with a green light to shoot) or they somehow fill a need (three-point shooting or defense).
Whatever the case, we'll take a look at 5 rookies with fantasy value projected higher than their years indicate:
1. Brandon Ingram, Los Angeles Lakers
All signs point to Ingram as an immediate fantasy star for the Purple and Gold. New Los Read More
