It was 3 out of 5 for me, as far as the best bargain options last night are concerned, but if you count Darius Garland and Keldon Johnson, I'm 5-for-7. Not bad at all. If you did select Sato, that's an automatic loss for you, though. Satoransky only 3 points, 1 rebound, and three assists over 20 minutes. Nicolas Batum wasn't any better as the Clippers got knocked out by Dallas, 142-73. The Frenchman had a disappointing 4-6-1 line but the rest of his teammates sucked as well. Side note: 51 points Read More
It will be a very tricky situation with Giannis Antetokounmpo for Game 5, but if he's not good to go, a couple of Bucks are definite go-to's. That includes Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, and Eric Bledsoe. Middleton is a lock to go for 40 FP and I think Bledsoe should also play more minutes and more usage rate if Giannis indeed sits out. If you don't want to play the Bucks, Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo have been pretty much unstoppable this series. Dragic is averaging 20 points, five rebounds, and Read More
It's been a wild playoffs so far this year and we've been treated to a handful of exciting series and a lot of insane finished. As the Lakers and the Rockets start their series, it's pretty interesting to see what happens with the Bucks. For me, Khris Middleton presents more value then Giannis at this point at a salary that is significantly less than the Greek Freak. Another one that has proved his worth in the first two games is Goran Dragic, averaging 25 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and Read More
1.) Kawhi Leonard (Nathan Denette/The Canadian Press) The Klaw's body of work in Game 3: 36 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals, a block in 52 minutes! He also helped hold Giannis Antetokonmpo to 12 points on 5-for-16 shooting. 2.) Gasol sighting! ( Brad Penner/USA TODAY Sports via Reuters) Marc Gasol finally woke up and contributed 16-12-7 with 5 blocks in the double-overtime Game 3 win. 3.)

1.) Steph's three-point shooting. Kyle Terada-USA TODAY SC30 is the greatest shooter of all time bar none but the Rockets have been doing a pretty good job taking his ultimate weapon. He has missed a total of 42 attempts from distance, the most he had over a five-game stretch. 2.) Ben Simmons is shooting 100% from midrange in the Playoffs... ... on one attempt. 3.) Hey, that looked like James Harden's chart shot in the last 8:30 minutes of Game 5 without KD! James Harden’s Read More
The Studs AP Photo Kevin Durant, SF, Golden State Warriors KD has been really special in this series averaging 36 points, along with 4.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists. Game 5 is now at home and with the Rockets really playing well, look for KD to be even better the rest of the way. Draymond Green, PF, Golden State Warriors If you can accommodate Steph Curry, then go for it, but if you want the more consistent performer, Dray is the guy. Game 4 is even an off game for him where he only Read More
Isaiah Thomas, PG, LAL
I think the trade will benefit Isaiah Thomas because he won’t be under LeBron‘s shadow or in all that drama that he experienced in Cleveland. Isaiah Thomas did not like the way the team played defense and apparently was unhappy with in game adjustments by Tyronn Lue and the lack of practice time he needed to get back from his injury. I think a fresh start with the Lakers, and an opportunity to be one of the veteran stars will really help his fantasy value. I don’t Read More
NBA DFS Playoffs: 3 Players To Build Around On Sunday (April 23, 2017)
Chris Paul, PG, Los Angeles Clippers ($9,800)
No brainer. Blake Griffin is out for the rest of the playoffs so the burden falls squarely on the shoulders of Chris Paul. It's not like we could ask more from CP3. He has not scored less than 47 fantasy points in the first three games and with BG gone, that production could go LeBron-esque at over $2,000 less.
DeAndre Jordan, C, Los Angeles Clippers ($7,900)
Again, with Read More
Feb. 21, 2016-- DFS Best Value Picks
LeBron James, SF ($9,700)
You can either go with Russell Westbrook or Kevin Durant here but LeBron James is cheaper while averaging almost the same Fantasy Points over the past 10 games as Westbrook. It seems Tyronn Lue's offense has awoken the fantasy beast in "The King". The only "mishap" in the past 10 is the Jan. 27 game in Phoenix, where the four-time MVP scored "only" 37.25 FP.
Pau Gasol, C, ($8,500)
I'm going with Pau Gasol for two Read More
January 23, 2015-- NBA DFS Basketball Best Value Picks:
Paul George, SF ($9,000)
The annual Paul George slump has officially passed although his three-point shooting says otherwise. However, that could change in Saturday's match-up with Sacramento. The Kings allows a league-high 10.3 three-pointers a game according to NBA.com stats, which could suit George very well since he attempts 7.6 a game.
Tyreke Evans, SG ($7,700)
Evans has recently encountered a rough patch because of a Read More
