Anthony Davis, C, NOP ($11,700)
Davis should be well-rested after the last Pelicans’ game was postponed due to a leak in the roof. He gets the 76ers tonight and as usual, Joel Embiid is a GTD. If Embiid can’t go, it should make it an easy night for Davis who is averaging 51.2 FPPG. He’s clearly benefited from Demarcus Cousins’ absence so far.
Ricky Rubio, PG, UTA ($8,000)
Rubio is quietly having an incredible season. Does anyone realize he’s getting 27.5 FPPG, including 29 points (8-16 Read More
Ben Simmons, PF, PHI ($9,900)
Simmons scored 48.2 FP on Friday against OKC. He’s had the whole weekend to rest, and he gets a good matchup with the lowly Bulls tonight. Joel Embiid is sitting out tonight for rest, which means Simmons is in for a huge workload and more rebounds. He’s being priced below Towns, Westbrook, Harden and Durant, but has a legit chance to be a top 3 performer tonight.
Kemba Walker, PG, CHA ($8,000)
Kemba Walker is as stable as they come. He’s averaging a solid 36.7 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
The Boston Celtics’ Success without Gordon Hayward
After all the hype and anticipation, it was devastating to see Gordon Hayward go down with a season-ending injury just 5 minutes into the season. The Celtics looked devastated and it showed early on, falling to 0-2 on the season. Since then, they’ve won six straight and the young team seems to have developed something special. With Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, and Jaylen Brown all a year older and more developed, this is one of the deepest teams Read More
I’ve been a big fan of the new DFS format called “Pick’Em”. In this style, you select players from different tiers. I like it because it narrows down the decision-making from dozens of players with various dollar values, to groups of similarly-skilled players. It also allows you the freedom to take multiple players from the same position, and removes the headache of trying to get your dollar values to stay within the budget. I’ll go through the first few tiers in detail, and then offer Read More
Hopefully you listened to my advice yesterday, here's a quick recap:
Steph Curry dropped 29 points, Ben Simmons finally got his triple-double thanks to his hybrid-PG status, and Otto Porter was impressive again with a double-double. Frank Kaminsky scored 18 points including 3-4 from 3-point range, and Avery Bradley had a mixed night with 15 points, but just 1-5 from beyond the arc.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks ($10,300)
The "Greek Freak" is in the conversation of being the best basketball fantasy player right now, so why not? Plus, the Bucks are going to catch Boston on the second night of a back to back. Needless to say, things are going to be looking real good for owners who'll spend big money on Giannis.
Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Pistons ($7,600)
For some reason, nobody is talking big about Andre Drummond in fantasy circles. His ADP Read More
