It's the last game of the NBA regular season and it's a little tricky picking up players for your DFS squad because teams are resting key players left and right. However, we still have lots of options especially the super rookies.
Trae Young, PG, Atlanta Hawks
Young is not on the injury report against the Pacers and there is a big chance he'll suit up for the final game of the season. Ice Trae has made the Rookie of the Year race a bit more interesting down the stretch, averaging Read More
Alex Caruso, SG, Los Angeles Lakers
Caruso finally got his chance and with his confidence at an all-time high, he turned a career-best performance against the Clippers: 32 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. He was the only Laker in the past few years outside of Kobe and LeBron to record such.
The Lakers will be up against the Jazz but Caruso's potential to play upwards of 30 minutes is too tantalizing to pass up.
Enes Kanter, C, Portland Trail Blazers
Kanter is averaging a double-double Read More
It's time to go bargain-hunting again on a 12-game Wednesday.
Richaun Holmes, C, Phoenix Suns
Without DeAndre Ayton possible for the rest of the season, Holmes will get some significant playing time from here on out. He had a nice double-double in a win over Cleveland and played 24 minutes. If he can somehow control his penchant for fouling, we can see another big night from Holmes.
Another option in a Suns uniform would be Dragan Bender, who is actually playing more minutes than Holmes Read More
Sterling Brown, SG, Milwaukee Bucks
With the Bucks firmly holding the best record in the NBA, Milwaukee is looking to rest key guys and play some of their younger ones. With Giannis, Khris Middleton, and Eric Bledsoe all out for load management, Sterling Brown came through with a career-game-- 27 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and three steals against Atlanta. The Bucks are on the second night of a back-to-back in Brooklyn but Brown has got young legs, so I don't see that as a problem.
Shaquille Read More
Time to go bargain-hunting again on a Friday night, starting with Hawks center Dewayne Dedmon.
Dewayne Dedmon, C, Atlanta Hawks
Dedmon combines the rare skill of creating space as a shooting center with the willingness to bang with anyone inside. He is averaging 17.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, and a steal over the past three games, all Hawks wins. He has drilled SEVEN treys during that span on 12 attempts.
Dwayne Bacon, SG, Charlotte Hornets
With Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lamb unavailable, Read More
Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ers
After missing almost a month, Embiid returned and hasn't missed a beat. He is averaging 25 points, 15.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2 blocks over a two-game span. Embiid will once again be leaned upon more with Jimmy Butler and Ben Simmons possibly out.
DeMar DeRozan, SF, San Antonio Spurs
DeRozan has three games out of the last four with at least 48 FP and looks like in the midst of a strong run. It's not that he's scoring, which Read More
Fanduel is gving away a free entry into their “Christmas Jam” contest. The prizes involve NBA tickets and autographs.
James Harden, PG, HOU ($15,500)
Harden has struggled (compared to his high standards), failing to score at or above his average FPPG in his last 4 games. His salary is slightly reflective of this, given that he’s only the 5th most expensive player. He’s only scored more than 30 points once in his last 5 games, and with the Thunder and Westbrook fighting for Read More
The OKC Thunder won't be as good as they were in previous seasons. You may already know why but that only makes things more interesting for the Thunder fantasy-wise. Some guys will and should be ready to step up without Kevin Durant and it would be fun watching Russell Westbrook go and try to replicate Oscar Robertson's triple-double season just too keep them in hunt for a playoff berth.
As much as we talk about Durant leaving, the Thunder also made noticeable changes to their core. They shipped Read More
