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
1.) Lonzo Ball, PG, Los Angeles Lakers
Verdict: Buy Low
Ball is barely clinging into a top-150 value because of poor percentages and mediocre point production. However, the things that he's really great at (assists and steals plus out-of-position stats like rebounds and occasional blocks) are among the rarest in fantasy basketball. In addition to that, scoring can easily be replaced and his shot attempts per game (7.8) and FT attempts per game (0.7) barely moves the needle. If an impatient Read More
Building Blocks For NBA DFS Monday-- Nov. 19, 2018
T.J. Warren, PF, Phoenix Suns
Warren is one of the most effortless scorers you will ever see and after a slow start, he's back at it with 21 or more in each of his last 5 games. He doesn't offer much except over 5 rebounds during that same span but as long as he is putting up points, he'll always be an asset in daily fantasy.
Jrue Holiday, PG/SG, New Orleans Pelicans
Between Paul George and Holiday, the latter is a more viable option Read More
Constructing a DFS lineup for a three-game slate is tricky but a simple recipe is to go top-heavy and swing for a couple of punt plays.
Here are some value building blocks for NBA DFS Tuesday, November 13, 2018.
James Harden, SG, Houston Rockets
Is the 40-7-9 line from Nov. 11 a sign of things to come from the reigning MVP? Hopefully, because we certainly haven't seen the jaw-dropping stat lines we are accustomed to seeing from the Beard. Denver has surprisingly among the top defensive teams Read More
Ben Simmons, PG, Philadelphia 76ers
The Sixers are headed to the playoffs and Ben Simmons is a big reason why. The seven-foot point guard is practically averaging a triple-double over the past month, putting up 12.4 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 10.8 assists during that stretch. And speaking of triple-doubles, Simmons has collected 7 of them in the past 11.
Philadelphia will be facing the lowly Nets and will be without Joel Embiid to close out the season so in Ben we should trust.
Paul Millsap, Read More
The trademark of a poor fantasy owner is impatience. It just happens well too often-- his better players start out slow and starts to put them on the trading block. If you see someone like that in your league, you better watch out if one or more of these players are on his team and you may want to part some of your overachieving ones as well.
Here are some early season fantasy basketball buy low/ sell high targets:
1. Trevor Ariza, SG/SF, Houston Rockets (Buy Low)
Ariza has been playing the Read More
The NBA is a big, bad, cruel world. Ir simply doesn't care whether you're a top dog in high school, in college, wherever. And it certainly doesn't give a damn whether you can pull off a 1,080-degree dunk (although that will look good on SportsCenter). What ultimately matters is how you fit into a system and if you don't, then it's the other way around: Transforming your game to be more successful.
Here are 6 recent NBA players who have been there and done that.
1. J.J. Redick
Redick was so Read More
The Atlanta Hawks isn't quite rebuilding (re-tooling may be a better word) but they look different from last year. Two of its five starters are gone though they retained most of their bench from last season.
Speaking of gone, fan favorite Al Horford is no longer here. Hometown boy Dwight Howard takes his place while the keys to the team's future was handed over to Dennis Schroder as they traded Jeff Teague to Indiana. It remains to be seen how the pieces fit for Mike Budenholzer but since Paul Millsap, Read More
