Four playoff games, for Game 3s will be on hand on Saturday afternoon, so who should be at the top of your priority list? Well, the Rockets are in no hurry to bring Russell Westbrook back after leading the Thunder, 2-0, so James Harden almost has a 100% chance to get his 50 FP. On the other hand, Oklahoma City should be playing with desperation so I think it's a good idea to have Chris Paul or Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. The ones that I am going to avoid like the plague would be Jusuf Nurkic and CJ Read More
Season-long fantasy basketball is a tricky business that combines foresight and sheer luck. The most important key to winning your league is, not on the first two rounds or a midseason stash, but somehow finding someone that vastly outperforms his Average Draft Position (ADP). You do that and you win your league. That's it. Show's over. Now, if you have one or two or three of these players, you definitely are among the top teams in your league. If you don't get lazy and set your lineup night in Read More
Jan. 6, 2020 recap: OK, Jingles gave me 39 FP so I'm pretty happy with the result along with JJ Redick's 27 FP on a near-minimum salary. As I have suggested, it would be best if you spend top dollar on Monday night's crop of point guards especially Luka Doncic and/or Lonzo Ball and both kept it rolling against their respective opponents. Doncic has recorded his 10th 30-point triple-double, the most by a 20-year old in NBA history while Ball had 21 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists for around Read More
Friday Picks Thank God 2019 is over. The start to this season has been my worst stretch of DFS Basketball I have had since I started playing. I couldn’t get anything going, I would be so comfortable and confident with a lineup and then watch it shit the bed over and over again. I’m going to turn it around in 2020, I have too, there is no possible way I could do any worse. The 3 players I pick have been pretty good, I will miss on the occasional player, but for the most part they have been Read More
I didn’t particularly like this weekends slate of games. Saturday had a huge 13 gamer and yesterday was an injury riddled 4 game slate. I am looking forward to this 6 game, there haven’t been many lately. Here are 3 players to build your DraftKings lineup around. Orlando Magic Daily Nikola Vucevic - $7,900 Nikola has been playing well since coming back from injury. His first 3 games he missed his fantasy average but he was very close, he has surpassed it in the last 3 of the last 4 games, Read More
Players To Own:
Anthony Davis, C, New Orleans Pelicans
AD is in the conversation as the best fantasy player right now averaging 32 points, 13.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 steals, and 3 blocks over the past three games. This affair with Charlotte has all the makings of a fantasy-friendly matchup and Davis will surely be in the forefront of this one.
Mike Conley, PG, Memphis Grizzlies
Conley is blazing hot lately with double-digit assists in three of the last four outings. But his other Read More
1. Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks
It's not that the Greek Freak will produce anything less than a 45-point DFS night, but I just don't like the fact that they're on the tail end of a back-to-back. Of course, I could be wrong and the possibility that Giannis will go ballistic against Portland after a loss to LeBron James and the Cavs but I favor James Harden (without CP3) at home against Dallas or Blake Griffin against Phoenix.

3. Hassan Whiteside Read More
Now that the NBA has announced their All-Star starters (no true power forwards and centers on both lineups, by the way), we got to follow suit but with some minor differences than the celebrated February classic.
Instead of three "Frontcourt" players, we will be selecting the best 5 from each traditional position and one Utility guy. Here are your 2016 Eastern Conference All-Stars:
PG: Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors
In the point guard position, you can either choose Lowry or Washington Wizard's Read More
1. Day of triple-doubles.
Owners of Hassan Whiteside, Russell Westbrook, and Marcus Smart were having a field day last night. All three of them recorded triple doubles, the most impressive one on Whiteside. The Miami Heat big man stepped up without Dwyane Wade, tallying 19 points, 17 rebounds, and a crazy 11 blocks!
Westrbook and Smart were not so bad, dropping almost the same numbers. The Thunder dynamo had 12 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists while Smart had 10 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 Read More
