Only 2 games to pick from tonight, but 3 of the 4 teams are loaded with fantasy talent. I took Joel Embiid in my DFS draft last night and he scored 90+ points. Let’s see if we can pick out some similar gems for tonight’s matchups.
Tier 1: Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving
My Choice: Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS
Boston’s defense is legit; they have the 2nd best defensive rating relative to league average since 1976. Jump shooters are just 16 for 51 from behind the three-point line against Read More
Draymond Green, PF/C, Golden State Warriors ($7,500)
Draymond had a monster statistical night against Memphis which, I think, will never be repeated in a while. Green had 12 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 STEALS, and 5 blocks. Golden State will be in Oklahoma City Saturday night and we just hope this rivalry game will bring out the best once again in the Michigan State alum. Zaza Pachulia won't likely be around against the Thunder, so he truly has a chance.

There are 20 NBA teams that will play four games through Nov. 21-27 but schedules are not created equal. Here are players to target for the upcoming week of fantasy basketball:
NBA Fantasy Basketball Forecaster: Nov. 21-27
Indiana Pacers, 4 games
Player to watch: Jeff Teague, PG
Teague's transition from Atlanta to his hometown Indiana has been up and down since Paul George went down with an ankle injury the past two games, the 2015 All-Star was brilliant. He is averaging 25.5 points, eight Read More
How you work the waiver is essentially one of the musts in winning your NBA fantasy basketball league. There are just so many factors in an NBA season-- games, injuries, youths, coach's preference-- that it's impossible to stick with a roster without ever making changes.
Here are the top waiver wire pickups for fantasy basketball this week and how they can help your team in the long run:
Marcus Smart, PG/SG, Boston Celtics
Smart has always been an elite steals contributor but without Read More
The Houston Rockets roster may not be that much better without Dwight Howard but with the hiring of Mike D'Antoni, they are going to have a lot of fantasy appeal. That as much is true.
MDA's system has brought so much fantasy value to teams like the Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, and the Los Angeles Lakers. Good players like Shawn Marion and Boris Diaw were made fantasy superstars and mediocre ones like Earl Clark and Jeremy Lin were made relevant.
Again, they may not be better than they were last Read More
Here are NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks in a six-game Friday.
John Wall, PG ($8,300)
Wall's Washington Wizards have disappointed so far and in some stretches this season, their best player did too. However, if the last two games are any indication, the speedster may have just turned a corner. Wall dropped back-to-back 60 fantasy-point games against Cleveland and L.A., and will be facing the Phoenix Suns at home, who incidentally is the league's worst in defending point guards.
