Many questions loom in the horizon in possibly one of the most exciting NBA seasons in recent memory. As fantasy players, though, we only have one thing in mind: Who's going to make the most of their opportunity and turn it up after the All-Star break? Here are 5 guys that will potentially do it:
1.) Jonathan Isaac, SF/PF, Orlando Magic
I am not a patient guy so I lament this one but kudos to the owners who stuck with the lanky forward through thick and thin. Isaac looks like he has turned Read More
Steph Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors
Monday night's slate has a plethora of options at the top but my vote of confidence goes to Curry. Aside from that loss to Toronto, Curry has made 12 treys and reached over 60 fantasy points during that those outings. A Curry-Mike Conley matchup should be fun but I expect the two-time MVP to come out on top in style.
Dario Saric, PF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Saric has made the most out of his opportunities Read More
Lonzo Ball, PG, Los Angeles Lakers ($7,800)
It will be somewhat of a grudge match when Denver visits the Staples Center Tuesday night after the incident at the Mile High City involving Luke Walton and Nuggets guard Jamaal Murray. Nevertheless, it would seem like Ball likes his matchups against Denver, averaging 11.7 points, 11 rebounds, 8 assists, and 2 steals in three previous outings.
Dario Saric, PF, Philadelphia 76ers ($6,700)
Saric has been on fire from deep as of late, draining an eye-popping Read More
Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF, MIL ($11,600)
He’s returning from a knee injury tonight, but I wouldn’t put him in your lineups right away. I like to give guys returning from injury a game or two to show me they’re healed, especially when their price is $11,600. Take DeMarcus Cousins, LeBron James, or one of the other high-ticket guys instead.
Isaiah Thomas, PG, CLE ($6,200)
I would avoid all Cleveland players not named LeBron until after the All-Star break. Thomas is tempting given all Read More
1. Kevin Durant, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors
Starting with the highest-paid guy, KD is a no-brainer must-start for every DFS team. You have earned as much when you average 34 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, and 3 blocks in a four-game span. Expect that kind of numbers especially with Steph Curry out, but since Draymond Green could be on the shelf as well against the Lakers, the Slim Reaper should go berserk in Kobe's jersey retirement night.
2. Omri Casspi, SF/PF, Golden State Warriors

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
For the first time in like forever, something positive is brewing in Philadelphia. And no, I don't mean the tank fest. (Although with probably a five-horse race for the top overall pick next year, that's not entirely a bad idea.)
But yeah, let's forget about the 10-72 record last season or the 18-64 slate from the season before. While they still figure to be one of the worst teams in the league, the excitement surrounding Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Dario Saric is warranted. These three are the Read More
