I did a similar article yesterday and it did went out well for the most part. For Friday night's slate, I suggested Russell Westbrook, Dwight Howard, Shake Milton, Kelly Olynyk, and Rudy Gay. All did exceptionally well except Howard, who "only" had 6 points and 10 rebounds plus extras. The reason for that is the return of Joel Embiid. Milton, KO, and Gay all hovered around 30 FP, while I felt Russ could have done more if the game did not go out of hand early. Overall, it was above average so let's Read More
The NBA 2020-21 season is upon us and that means it's fantasy basketball time once again. There will be 13 games on December 23 so as far as the studs are concerned, you'll have a feast. The trickier game is finding bargains that complement the stars. We will have dozens of options here and let's sift out the best 5 that we can find. Here are the best bargain options for NBA DFS on Dec. 23, 2020. 1.) Elfrid Payton, PG, New York Knicks Yahoo: $17; DraftKings: $5,400; FanDuel: $5,400 The PG position Read More
The last 5 suggestions (for Jan. 10th) did not go as well as I would have hoped. Pop brought misery by playing Lonnie Walker IV only 15 minutes while doing basically nothing. Dewayne Dedmon, who I have high hopes for, got into foul trouble early and disappeared in 14 minutes of play. Because of the mini-blowout, JJ Redick played 23 minutes (12 points, two rebounds, two assists) which is a bit mediocre, while JaVale McGee and (nine points, three rebounds, two steals, and a block) and Bobby Portis Read More
This time around, there are way more hits than misses in our last bargain tips, starting with the Alex Len's double-double: Alex Len- Len has been monstrous since he's been out of the starting lineup, compiling a double-double (11 points, 13 rebounds) plus two assists, a steal, and a block in only 21 minutes. That's good for over 35 FP, awesome value for someone who costs 12 bucks in Yahoo and $4,300 at DK. Mitchell Robinson- Pretty good with 14 points and nine rebounds (over 27 FP) but the lack Read More
Jonas Valanciunas, C, Memphis Grizzlies
Now, who would've thought? JV has been tearing it up as of late, dominating his last three opponents to the tune of 25.3 points, 17.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 2.3 blocks. He will be facing Steven Adams so temper your expectations a little bit but the Grizzlies doesn't have too many options on offense. JV has a 40-50 FP upside every night.
Jimmy Butler, SG, Philadelphia 76ers
I'm not sure we will see a 50-FP game from Jimmy Butler for Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Saturday:
James Harden, PG/SG, Houston Rockets
I'm trying to be a contrarian here with the Harden pick and Houston unexpectedly struggling on offense. The Beard still put up elite numbers (26.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 2.6 steals) but not the jaw-dropping lines we see from him in seasons past.
What does that mean? That means he is due for an explosive showing and it could come at the expense of the Spurs, who is 23rd in the league when it comes to Read More
January 27, 2016-- DFS Basketball Best Value Picks
Karl-Anthony Towns, C ($7,000)
The 2015 No. 1 overall pick is on fire lately, averaging 48. 25 fantasy points over the last four games. His last game against a very capable Cavaliers defense is very impressive (26 points and 12 rebounds, 50.25 FP in 30 minutes) and a matchup with the fast-paced OKC Thunder promises another stat-filled night for the rookie.
Isaiah Thomas, PG ($7,800)
Thomas has been very consistent this season where Read More
