Who To Play:
Zach Lavine, PG/SG, Chicago Bulls
After going through some of the toughest shooting struggles of the season, Lavine turned a corner and is one of the hottest players coming into Friday.
The former Bruin is averaging 27 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 0.8 blocks, and 1.4 steals while making a total of 17 threes in the last five games.
The Bulls will be up against Golden State and we just pray the Warriors make it a little competitive so Lavine can find some more time on the court.

1. Dwight's Renaissance
D12 is averaging 15.5 points and 12.5 rebounds on 55% shooting in just under 30 minutes night. He is on pace to become the 5th player in NBA history to average at least 12 boards in 11 seasons (behind Chamberlain, Russell, Bob Pettit, and Dolph Schayes).
2. Dead-eye Ryan...
Ryan Anderson is shooting 77.8% from deep when being assisted by Chris Paul.
3. Guess how many times Russell Westbrook has ball-screened for Melo?
*Drum Roll* ZERO!

Victor Oladipo, PG/SG, IND ($7,700)
Victor Oladipo has fit right in with the Pacers, shooting 50% from the field including 47% from 3-point range. At $7,700 on Draft Kings, he’s a great value compared to Russell Westbrook who would set you back $11,200. Sacramento ranks 24th against opposing point guards.
Bogdan Bogdanovic, SG, SAC ($4,300)
Bogdanovic actually got the start last game, and he put up 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt) 4 steals, 3 rebounds and an assist in 23 minutes. He’s Read More
The 2017-18 offseason is one of the craziest and wildest offseasons in recent memory. As of September 26, at least SIX All-Stars have changed addresses including Chris Paul, Kyrie Irving, Paul George, and just recently, Carmelo Anthony.
Irving was a top-20 fantasy basketball player last year as well as George, while Melo is still a highly serviceable scorer who could be in danger of being criminally underrated inside fantasy circles. CP3 is joining 2017 MVP runner-up James Harden in Houston and Read More
In case you missed it, Phil Jackson engineered another highway robbery of a trade Wednesday, acquiring Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls "for two scratch and sniff lotto tickets, one of Shawn Kemp's nine kids & a bootleg copy of Rihanna's CD," that is if you're paying attention to Gilbert Arenas.
Well, it's either the Zen Master pulled the wool over the Bulls' brass or the other way around, Chicago's FO knowing D-Rose has one too many under-the-knife sessions that could make a metal detector Read More
Five-game slate Saturday December 19th makes for an interesting Daily Fantasy Basketball night.
Chris Paul, PG ($7,800)
CP3 at THAT price? It's a no-brainer, and I don't care whoever the Los Angeles Clippers is slated to play against. It happens to be the Houston Rockets, who is third worst in the league in stopping opposing point guards.
Carmelo Anthony, SF ($8,300)
'Melo's daily fantasy point production is sort of up and down but you have got to like what's going on here. The New Read More
The Golden State Warriors are better than expected. The Atlanta Hawks may well be the Team of the Year (if there ever was one) halfway through the season. Andrew Wiggins is rounding his game up nicely in Minnesota and looks like the runaway winner for the Rookie of the Year.
But let's not delve too much on the positive side, folks. General managers don't always earn their stripes (and cash) for being too complimentary. By pointing out who's not playing up to par, hey, maybe we'll get their attention Read More
