I hope you did your diligence last March 9 and checked the availability of your guys. Turns out the Bucks gave this game away by sitting out four of their five starters and one of their most dynamic players coming off that bench, including three in my suggestions. That said, all of the picks I gave other than the grounded Bucks did absolutely well.
Outside of Eric Bledsoe, I did suggest the starting Hornets backcourt and they were awesome, helped by a double-overtime game and playing another team Read More
It was one of those strange nights in daily fantasy basketball. It really was strange when two of the best six performances of the night came from OG Anunoby and Shake Milton. Kristaps Porzingis' 5-block, 30-point, 13-rebound is up there with LeBron James' and Nikola Jokic' triple-doubles, and Bradley Beal's 34-2-8 and 5 steals in the vicinity.
Out of the six, Beal and Milton were on my list although I managed to somehow mess up another stud pick by suggesting Brandon Ingram over Zion Williamson. Read More
We brought you three bargain options (plus other suggestions) for Dec. 12, 2019 and here's a short recap:
Jakob Poeltl-- Fairly solid, but delivered what I thought was the worst-case scenario for the Austrian big man. He had four points, three rebounds, an assist, plus four "stocks" in 22 minutes. He delivered a little bit better numbers in only 18 minutea against the Kings but that's how it is. He'll be better if LaMarcus Aldridge is out, which does not happen very often.
Gary Harris- Jamal Murray Read More
Trying to get value from bargains is tricky business and it can obviously get you mixed results. So what happened with our previous bargain options list? Here's a short recap:
PJ Washington- Played almost 40 minutes and got the win but did not do much. 15-4-3 plus 1 block but at his price, that line is still solid.
Moritz Wagner- 9-6-3 which is not but at his price range at DK, you can do better.
Matisse Thybulle- Richardson played but Thybulle still got the better portion of the playing time pie, Read More
I'll be the very first one to admit that there is no such thing as a perfect draft unless you're competing with six year olds. But relatively speaking, you can pretty much nail a fantasy basketball draft if you come prepared. and has a clear goal in mind.
The league scoring also matters and for this article, let's hypothetically consider how to complete the (near) perfect standard points league draft.
In a points league, the general rule is go for high-efficiency bigs (high FG% ) over high-volume, Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Thursday-- Feb. 28, 2019
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Golden State Warriors
Boogie did not play versus Miami to rest but has been playing really well lately. He had four consecutive double-doubles culminating in a 24-11-3 performance with a steal and three blocks in Charlotte. He is beginning to show the potential to cough up 50 FP nights so I'm scooping him up before his salary gets really high.
Donovan Mitchell, SG, Utah Jazz
Spyda has been picking up Read More
Who To Pick
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
If you have gone for two whole months accounting for at least 40 FP, you're a definite stud. PG13 is averaging 37.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 2.2 steals in his last 5 games with no signs of slowing down. As we go into the homestretch, expect more of the same, if not more, from Paul George.
Lou Williams, SG, Los Angeles Clippers
Without Tobias Harris, the Clippers will have to lean more on Lou Will for their playoff push. He responded Read More
Many questions loom in the horizon in possibly one of the most exciting NBA seasons in recent memory. As fantasy players, though, we only have one thing in mind: Who's going to make the most of their opportunity and turn it up after the All-Star break? Here are 5 guys that will potentially do it:
1.) Jonathan Isaac, SF/PF, Orlando Magic
I am not a patient guy so I lament this one but kudos to the owners who stuck with the lanky forward through thick and thin. Isaac looks like he has turned Read More
Paul George, SF, OKC Thunder
Paul George is absolutely on fire the past few games and should continue to do so in a favorable matchup against New Orleans. He had three 40-point games in the last SIX including a 47-point triple-double the last time out. Let's see how hot he can get this time around.
John Collins, PF, Atlanta Hawks
With PG eating too much of the cap space, you can pair him with a high-potential player like Read More
