Kristaps Porzingis, PF, NYK ($9,700)
Porzingod was hobbled by an ankle injury in early December, but he’s gotten back on track with 29, 31.8 and 55.6 FP in his last three games. Porzingis scored 30 points (10-23 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 9-10 FT), grabbed eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 38 minutes on Sunday. Although it was the Hawks, Kristaps’ numbers are impressive and tonight he gets a favorable matchup with the Lakers at home. I’d rather have him at his price than Karl-Anthony Read More
Kristaps Porzingis, PF/C, New York Knicks ($9,400)
The Unicorn is still technically questionable for Saturday's game against Sacramento, but the fact that he went through full practice on Friday and Jeff Hornacek expects him to be ready is an encouraging sign. Porzingod is an absolute fantasy beast this season, topping the 50-FP plateau in half of the 10 games he's played.
Jeff Teague, PG, Minnesota Timberwolves ($6,800)
Since Porzingis already had the bulk of the salary, you can Read More
We’ve got 8 games tonight, so there are a lot of options to choose from. Let’s try and narrow it down to the best choices in the pick’em format.
Tier 1 – Anthony Davis, PF/C, NO
In tier 1, we get to choose from Davis, Kings teammate DeMarcus Cousins, and Rockets guard James Harden. Harden has had to carry the load for the Rockets with Chris Paul out, but he had a rough shooting night on Monday (8-21), and the Knicks have been surprisingly effective against opposing point guards. So Read More
Here are NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks in a six-game Friday.
John Wall, PG ($8,300)
Wall's Washington Wizards have disappointed so far and in some stretches this season, their best player did too. However, if the last two games are any indication, the speedster may have just turned a corner. Wall dropped back-to-back 60 fantasy-point games against Cleveland and L.A., and will be facing the Phoenix Suns at home, who incidentally is the league's worst in defending point guards.

Earl Monroe. Terry Cummings. Steve Francis. Blake Griffin.
What do those four have in common? Well, for starters, look at their rookie stats and prepare to hold your jaw in place.
"The Pearl" is a 24-5-5 guy, Cummings averaged 24 and 11, "Franchise" posted the second-best Effective FG% in a season, and Griffin, how does 22 points and 10 rebounds sound like?
The point is, seasons in and seasons, there are going to be first-year studs and fingers crossed, we aim to find the hidden gems two Read More
