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
Let's start this time with my worst suggested pick for on Feb. 21 and that's taking a flier on Kevin Porter, Jr. Nothing could be a worst day for picking KPJ as he played only under 13 minutes (ejected for two technicals) with almost nothing to show for it. But you know what could hurt more than the KPJ pick? Donovan Mitchell. Spida finished with only 12 points, one rebound, and four assists. I personally think he is worst choice out of the three mid-salary guys that I suggested because, well, Read More
Friday Recap Khris Middleton 43.50 FPTs 23P/7A/8R Devin Booker 44.25 FPTs. 34P/4A/3R/2S Willie Cauley-Stein 19.50 FPTs 9P/1A/4R/2S Behind The Buck Pass Middleton had a great game against the Hawks, he was the leading scorer with 23 points, he finished with 43.50 fantasy points in only 25 minutes. Ilyasova was a good pickup, with Giannis being out he got the start and put up 42.75 fantasy points and was only $3,300. Ersan had an 18 point and 17 rebound double double Read More
Thursday Recap Andre Drummond 28.50 FPTs 14P/10R/1B De’Aaron Fox 6.26 FPTs 2P/2A/1R Svi Mykhailiuk 26.50 FPTs 12P/4A/4R/1S CBS Sports Thursday Recap Andre Drummond 28.50 FPTs 14P/10R/1B De’Aaron Fox 6.26 FPTs 2P/2A/1R Svi Mykhailiuk 26.50 FPTs 12P/4A/4R/1S I can’t break out of this slump, every player I draft looks like they got hit by a bus before the game and decided Read More
1.) League of his own Devin Booker, through eight games, is the only player in the NBA to have shot over 50% from the field, 50% from 3 in at least 5 attempts per game, and shoot over 90% from the line. 2.) Celtics Quirk From out of nowhere, the Boston Celtics sits atop the Eastern Conference by stringing seven straight after losing its first game. Now without Kyrie Irving, Boston got contributions from everywhere: Marcus Smart co-leads the team in assists with Kemba Walker (4.5), while Jayson Read More
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
The reason why PG should be on everyone's DFS roster is that Russell Westbrook will be serving his one-game suspension Monday night. He is averaging 30 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.7 steals over his last three. Expect him to be more aggressive as the Thunder's primary scorer and facilitator for the night.
Devin Booker, SG, Phoenix Suns
Speaking of being a primary scorer and facilitator for the team, Booker has done that and more for the Read More
Traditionally speaking, shooting guard is the shallowest position in fantasy basketball. Since point guards like Steph Curry, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving do have SG eligibility in fantasy, it makes the position pool look deeper than it actually is. In this list - 5 Best Shooting Guards For Fantasy Basketball - however, I won't include the aforementioned names (because they really are point guards who can simply score) and concentrate on players who played the SG position for the majority of their Read More
Who To Own
Anthony Davis, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans
Davis' salary can be crippling but with a nine-game slate, it's easier to find production at a discount. I mean, how can you go wrong on picking someone who dropped over 60 fantasy points after leaving the pre-game warmups to vomit? The Pelicans will be playing Sacramento, another ultra fast-paced team, making this a very fantasy-friendly matchup.
Lou Williams, PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Read More
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
Steph Curry, PG, GSW
Talk about a tough choice. This tier makes us choose between Kevin Durant, Karl-Anthony Towns, Kyrie Irving and Curry. You really can’t lose here, but I like Steph Curry’s chances of taking advantage of the Wolves’ guards tonight. Minnesota ranks 29th against opposing point guards, and Curry is due for a big game. Steph is averaging just 19.7 PPG in November, but I think Minnesota’s focus will be on stopping Durant and Draymond Green from driving to Read More
