Every year we say 'It's a crazy NBA trade deadline' and this time around we actually mean it. Some trades that have taken place shook the NBA's balance of power and even though it will be difficult to feel out their fantasy outlooks, we'll try nonetheless.
Bobby Portis, PF/C, Washington Wizards
Portis has had a publicized beef with Bulls coach Jim Boylen and I'm sure for him, getting out of Boylen's tutelage is a win in itself. It looks like it will also be the case inside the basketball Read More
Players To Own
LeBron James, PF, Los Angeles Lakers
LBJ always shows up on big games and I'd count this one as such because it will be the first time he'll return to Cleveland wearing a Lakers uniform. His return to Miami saw him produce a season-high 51 and while I don't expect that scoring output this time around, I also don't think he'll be a disappointment in his return home.
Marc Gasol, C, Memphis Grizzlies
Gasol has begun to hit his groove the last two games, producing 21.5 points, Read More

I’ve been a big fan of the new DFS format called “Pick’Em”. In this style, you select players from different tiers. I like it because it narrows down the decision-making from dozens of players with various dollar values, to groups of similarly-skilled players. It also allows you the freedom to take multiple players from the same position, and removes the headache of trying to get your dollar values to stay within the budget. I’ll go through the first few tiers in detail, and then offer Read More
5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day-- Dec. 19, 2016
1. John Wall/Bradley Beal bad blood over?
Sure looks like it on the court. The Washington Wizards backcourt appears in the top 10 in the NBA's per-game scoring leaders, the only teammates to have done so this season. Beal, for one, is averaging 26.5 points and 3.9 assists over the past 15 games.
2. Al Horford is in the middle of a historic season.

Best NBA DFS Value Picks For DraftKings-- Dec. 3, 2016
Gordon Hayward, SF, Utah Jazz ($7,700)
The Jazz will probably miss George Hill tonight because of thumb sprain so most of his Usage should go to Gordon Hayward. Hayward has hit his stride lately, hitting over 36 Fantasy Points in the last six games capped by a 50-FP outing against Miami. There's a big chance he'll hit around that vicinity again against Denver.
Marc Gasol, C, Memphis Grizzlies ($7,100)
Speaking someone who has Read More
