NBA DFS Value Picks For Aug. 3, 2020

Jayson Tatum was an easy call to make as a stud in my last suggestions list and he did not disappoint. He had 34-4-8 plus two steals and a block, which nears 60 FP in all platforms. And Jusuf Nurkic? Well, make it two monster games in a row-- 30-9-5 plus two steals and a block. Nurk will approach top-tier status in no time so his days as a Middle Man in my book are numbered. Finally, my faith in Caris LeVert has been rewarded! I don't care if it came against the Wizards but I'm not complaining against Read More

Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Feb. 27, 2020

It's been days since I last had my last value picks so there's no point on recapping  what transpired five days ago. What I would like to start with are my thoughts on Joel Embiid and the Sixers, with their All-Star center apparently injuring his right shoulder. Nobody wants this to happen but when it does, fantasy owners need to capitalize. With Ben Simmons still nursing a bad back, more responsibilities fall on the shoulder of Al Horford and Tobias Harris. Horford and Harris will be Read More

3 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Jan. 1, 2020

Here's a short recap for Dec. 31: Due to the blowout nature of the Denver-Houston game, Michael Porter, Jr., Chris Clemons, and Eric Gordon fizzled. Clemons is essentially a streaming option in case Russell Westbrook is not good to go so you can leave him in the conversation. Moreover, James Harden did suit up limiting more minutes at the backcourt. On the other hand, Rudy Gay, who has been playing well the past thee games was held to around 8 FP in 19 minutes in an overtime game against the Warriors. Read More

Best Value Picks and Bargains For NBA DFS Friday– March 15, 2019

The Studs
Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ers

After missing almost a month, Embiid returned and hasn't missed a beat. He is averaging 25 points, 15.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2 blocks over a two-game span. Embiid will once again be leaned upon more with Jimmy Butler and Ben Simmons possibly out.
DeMar DeRozan, SF, San Antonio Spurs

DeRozan has three games out of the last four with at least 48 FP and looks like in the midst of a strong run. It's not that he's scoring, which Read More

Best Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup For Today– Feb. 12, 2019

The Studs
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers

James has to get it going if he wants the Lakers to make the playoffs and while he has relatively played well since his return, he needs to up his play another level. That said, there's no better way than lighting up a mediocre team like the Hawks.
Klay Thompson, SG, Golden State Warriors

KT has been pretty effective lately, averaging 27 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.3 blocks over his past four. The two previous games Read More

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Wednesday– Oct. 24, 2018

Building Blocks For NBA DFS Wednesday-- Oct. 24, 2018
Kyle Kuzma, SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers are playing with a third-ranked pace in the league (107.6 according to Basketball Reference) making them a fantasy gold mine. Of course, if you can afford LeBron James you can always go that route but after delivering a 37-point, 8-rebound gem against San Antonio on his first start of the season, Kuzma may break out again against the Suns. He looks like a natural fit with James and with Brandon Read More

NBA DFS Players to Target, Feb 23, 2018

Kyrie Irving, PG, BOS ($7,900)
Irving will want to hit the ground running to begin the second half for the Celtics. They get Detroit tonight at 7:00pm, and the Pistons no longer have Avery Bradley to help pester him. Also, the presence of Drummond and Griffin down low could mean more outside shots for Irving and company.
Nikola Jokic, C, DEN ($9,700)
As usual, the center pool doesn’t have much to choose from, but there’s a case to be made you should reach for Jokic despite his high salary. Read More

NBA Rookie Power Rankings

With 4 weeks of the NBA season in the books, we’ve had enough of a sample size to take stock of the rookies so far this year. Ranking rookies is always tough since some are thrust into starting roles, while others are able to ease into things off the bench. Some are on contenders, surrounded by stars, and others are not. Here’s a reminder of the top 5 picks from this year’s draft:

76ers: Markelle Fultz (G) - Washington
Lakers: Lonzo Ball (G) - UCLA
Celtics: Jayson Tatum (F) - Read More

NBA DFS Players to Avoid on Nov. 9 – 2017

Lonzo Ball, PG, LAL ($6,000)

Lonzo totaled 9 points, 6 assists and 4 blocks in 39 minutes last night against the Celtics. Lonzo was clearly overmatched by Kyrie Irving, and I bet having to chase Irving around all night contributed to his poor performance on offense. He was just 1-5 from 3-point range, and most of his points came on floaters in the lane, or on aggressive drives to the basket while the Celtics were getting back on defense. Obviously, tonight will be his second game in as many Read More

NBA DFS Basketball Best Value Picks– Nov. 8, 2017

NBA DFS Basketball Best Value Picks-- Nov. 8, 2017
The Studs

Kyrie Irving, PG, Boston Celtics ($8,800)
Kyrie has been amazingly consistent all year and has just dropped his first 50-FP game of the season against Atlanta. He is ranked second only to Steph Curry in terms of FPPG at the point guard position on Wednesday's slate of games on $500 less.  Plus, we know how Irving loves the spotlight on big games and the rivalry outing against the Lakers exactly fits the bill.
Andre Drummond, C, Detroit Read More
