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
It feels so bare that there is no basketball being played right now. Due to COVID-19, the 2020-2021 NBA season was pushed back to December. Due to the shutdown, the season didn’t conclude until last October. With that said, it feels like an eternity without basketball even though we just witnessed the Los Angeles Lakers capture the title. When thinking back in time, it also feels like an eternity ago that former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Bogut made his NBA debut. That’s right. November Read More
We still don't know when or if the season will even resume but it won't hurt getting the guys the recognition they deserve. These time around, let's give the NBA's best stoppers some love. 1.) Brook Lopez, C, Milwaukee Bucks The Bucks' defense this season approaches historic proportions no thanks to a line of capable defenders from up and down the roster. Guys such as Eric Bledsoe, Wesley Matthews, and Khris Middleton are menaces on the perimeter but Milwaukee's defensive identity relies heavily Read More
I hope you did your diligence last March 9 and checked the availability of your guys. Turns out the Bucks gave this game away by sitting out four of their five starters and one of their most dynamic players coming off that bench, including three in my suggestions. That said, all of the picks I gave other than the grounded Bucks did absolutely well. Outside of Eric Bledsoe, I did suggest the starting Hornets backcourt and they were awesome, helped by a double-overtime game and playing another team Read More
If you could redo the draft all over again, would you have picked the same players or are you ready to move on? Well, just to put it out there, there is no such thing as a perfect draft but I am still doing well in my leagues so the answer would be kind of in the middle. That said, there are certain players who are can't miss, which means if they somehow fall in your lap, you better not take five seconds before you pull the damn trigger. What we are going to do is go through six rounds of drafting Read More
Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday-- Nov. 19, 2018
T.J. Warren, PF, Phoenix Suns
Warren is one of the most effortless scorers you will ever see and after a slow start, he's back at it with 21 or more in each of his last 5 games. He doesn't offer much except over 5 rebounds during that same span but as long as he is putting up points, he'll always be an asset in daily fantasy.
Jrue Holiday, PG/SG, New Orleans Pelicans
Between Paul George and Holiday, the latter is a more viable option Read More
In this article, I will recommend players that you may want to target and build around your NBA lineup tonight (Cash & GPP). These players shall exceed value because of increase playing time and increase usage rate.
Daily Fantasy NBA Picks for FanDuel – April 9, 2018
Nikola Mirotic, PF, NO Pelicans (FanDuel: $6,900)
Jrue Holiday, SG, NO Pelicans (FanDuel: $8,900)
Anthony Davis, PF, NO Pelicans (FanDuel: $13,200)
New Orleans Pelicans are in a must win vs LA Clippers, who are out of Read More
Ben Simmons, PG, Philadelphia 76ers ($8,800)
The Houston-OKC tiff is intriguing with a lot of big names but if you want to spread out the wealth with the same ceiling for a huge outing, try Ben Simmons. The Aussie has just torched their would-be opponent Charlotte four days ago with 15 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, and a block. It would be nice to add more scoring and defensive stats but that should still be one heck of a stat line.
Jrue Holiday, SG, New Orleans Pelicans ($8,500)
Holiday has Read More
Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers ($9,300)
Dame has been a usage monster since Jusuf Nurkic went down and he has not disappointed DFS owners. He has hit at least 40.7 fantasy points in the past seven games with a high of 55.3 FP. Almost the entire offensive load will practically be on his shoulders, so expect Lillard to be at the 28-point, 6-rebound, 7.5-assist and over 4 trey-a-game average he's had in the past four games.
Rajon Rondo, New Orleans Pelicans ($5,600)
After dropping Read More
It's never a good idea to just sit and wait in fantasy basketball. If there's a chance to improve at a certain position or category, pulling the trade trigger is usually a good thing. Here are 5 trade targets you can probably pry away from an impatient, or at least, an uninformed owner.
1. Serge Ibaka, PF, Orlando Magic
Air Congo is a little up-and-down to begin the season but has since picked up steam. He is actually averaging a career-high in points and hits 1.5 threes a game. He is not Read More
