We basketball fans will always remember Kobe Bryant and if you have played fantasy basketball long enough, you probably remember Mamba's body of work in his best fantasy seasons.
First of all, the 81-point game. Kobe's final line was 81, plus 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, 7 3pts made. That would have been the most points scored in DFS basketball in the modern era (103 points in DraftKings and 100.2 in Yahoo). Only Wilt's 100, Jordan's 69 and Hakeem's 38-17-12 triple double are above Read More
1.) Kris Dunn, PG, Chicago Bulls
Yahoo: $12; DraftKings: $5,100
The other "KD" has solidified himself as a permanent starter under Jim Boylen with three-game averages of 11.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 2.3 steals.
That's not eye-popping but considering he is only worth $12 on Yahoo, he is worth the risk in my opinion. (At DK, not so much.) Said risk is that they were playing the Raptors, who just came off a loss against the Sixers so they may be facing a better and more motivated team Read More
1. Dwight's Renaissance
D12 is averaging 15.5 points and 12.5 rebounds on 55% shooting in just under 30 minutes night. He is on pace to become the 5th player in NBA history to average at least 12 boards in 11 seasons (behind Chamberlain, Russell, Bob Pettit, and Dolph Schayes).
2. Dead-eye Ryan...
Ryan Anderson is shooting 77.8% from deep when being assisted by Chris Paul.
3. Guess how many times Russell Westbrook has ball-screened for Melo?
*Drum Roll* ZERO!
4. Speaking of Carmelo Read More
It's just impossible to win a season-long fantasy league without working the waiver wire as there should be expected bumps along the way. The endless rotation shifts and injuries, however disappointing, is a fact of basketball life.
A wise fantasy owner takes this into consideration and looks for ways to maximize their team's productions. Sometimes, you have to beat others to the punch but a sage-like owner doesn't need to: He just looks someplace others don't.
