I pretty much aced four of the five bargain picks yesterday, with the only casualty being James Ennis. Gary Clark took over the job and was solid (6 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, two steals) on the near-minimum range. I also suggested Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Chris Paul, who I figured will play with desperation, and I hit the bulls-eye. A team that is built around James Harden, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, another stud, with the value picks I suggested, and that should be enough to win most 50-50s Read More
The second day of the NBA bubble in Orlando is once again a fantasy minefield, but there's catch: you should know where to look. There's no reason why the third day isn't any better. But hey, I'll let you know how I did Friday, starting with my five suggestions. After that, I'll go right om who I think are the best NBA DFS value picks for August 1, 2020. From what I have suggested, I was right in all of them maybe except Caris LeVert. I said I would be disappointed if LeVert doesn't give me Read More
The annual crazy exodus otherwise known as the NBA trade deadline has passed and it was one of the busiest in recent memory. At least 25 players changed uniforms and that includes a number of high calibers such as Andre Drummond, D'Angelo Russell, and Andrew Wiggins. Here are the fantasy winners and losers at the NBA trade deadline: Winners Christian Wood, PF/C, Detroit Pistons The ultra-talented big man just saw his value skyrocket when the Pistons decided to get rid of Andre Drummond and ship Read More
Lots of choices to go around a 14-game night but let me give you a heads-up of who I think are the top 5 value picks for Nov. 27. 1.) Marcus Smart, PG/SG, Boston Celtics Yahoo: $23; DraftKings: $6,500 Smart had himself a night against Sacramento, tallying 17 points, three rebounds, seven assists, five steals, a block, and more importantly, no turnovers. He jammed his finger late in the game but he expects to be fine against Brooklyn at home. As long as the Celtics are without Kemba Walker and Gordon 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
Marcus Morris, SF/PF, Boston Celtics
Morris is the only legitimate power forward on this Celtics roster and there will be nights where he will get his minutes and roll. He is averaging 14.2 points and 7.2 rebounds a game and while the other stats leaves a lot to be desired (0.8 assists and 0.5 steals + blocks), he already has 13 treys made over the last 7 games.
That said, Morris is much more valuable in points leagues than in Roto and category leagues. If you're playing Rotiserrie or H2H Read More
NBA basketball is upon us which means, FANTASY BASKETBALL is here! I'm sure you already had your season-long leagues down but what adds to the excitement is daily fantasy basketball.
So who gets the nod on the first day at the office? Here are some DFS basketball opening day must-starts that you should look at:
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
Russell Westbrook will not be playing so it will be the PG13 show for the Thunder on Opening Day. George hasn't had a bad statistical game in the preseason Read More
1. The Eastern Conference Finals Game 1 marks the first time in the playoffs that LeBron James did not lead the Cavaliers in BOTH points and assists.
Kevin Love led the team with 17 points.
2. Home Sweet Home
The Celtics have won eight straight playoff games at the TD Garden after the 108-83 victory in the Eastern Conference Finals Game 1.
3. One streak continues, while another ends.
Jayson Tatum's streak of 20+ points games ends at 7 tonight. The blowout does not help but I'm Read More
Andre Drummond, C, DET ($10,600)
How in the world is Drummond not an all-star? He continues to be the best rebounder in basketball, grabbing 15.7 a game and 21 in Monday’s loss to the Pelicans. If he can grab that many boards against Anthony Davis, how many can he get tonight against the Hawks? He and Davis are far and away better than any other centers available tonight.
Kyle Lowry, PG, TOR ($7,600)
Lowry recorded 22 points (8-17 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists, four rebounds and two steals 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.
