Kobe Bryant’s Body Of Work In Fantasy Basketball and Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Jan. 29, 2020

We basketball fans will always remember Kobe Bryant and if you have played fantasy basketball long enough, you probably remember Mamba's body of work in his best fantasy seasons. First of all, the 81-point game. Kobe's final line was 81, plus  6 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, 7 3pts made. That would have been the most points scored in DFS basketball in the modern era (103 points in DraftKings and 100.2 in Yahoo). Only Wilt's 100, Jordan's 69 and Hakeem's 38-17-12 triple double are above Read More

5 Best Bargain Options For NBA DFS Dec. 11, 2019

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

Fantasy Implications Of The Trevor Ariza Trade

December 15th is a date of interest for many NBA teams as it marks the day that all free agents who signed with their new teams in the offseason are eligible to be traded.

After days of buzz and a botched three-team trade, a swap involving the Phoenix Suns' Trevor Ariza finally pushed through. Ariza was traded to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers. While the betting site SportsLine had the Wizards' playoff chances up 20% because of the trade, we have other agendas Read More

5 Early Season Fantasy Basketball Buy Low/ Sell High Targets

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

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks– Oct. 23, 2017

The Studs
Giannis Antetokounmpo, PG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks ($10,900)
The Greek Freak is on a mission, period. No explanation needed on this one. Pick him up and be ready to roll.
Ben Simmons, PG/SF, Philadelphia 76ers ($7,700)
Ben Simmons is doing his best Giannis impression right now and that's good news for fantasy owners. Simmons has just the right price to complement Antetokounmpo's high-end salary and has a high floor given his penchant to contribute across the board (except 3's). The Pistons Read More

Best NBA DFS Value Picks– Dec. 14, 2016

Best NBA DFS Value Picks-- Dec. 14, 2016
It's a 10-game slate in the NBA and the big guns are playing but could there be other ways to win other than relying on Russell Westbrook, James Harden, or Demarcus Cousins?

The Studs

Kyle Lowry, PG, Toronto Raptors ($8,200)
The Raptors' efficient offense runs through this guy and it's no surprise that in his recent tear, he brought Toronto along with him. Lowry has scored at least 42 fantasy points in seven of the last eight games and will face a Read More

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks Oct. 28

NBA DFS Basketball Value Picks Oct. 28
The Studs

Steph Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors (vs Pelicans), $9,300
Do you really think the Warriors are going to lose two games in a row to start the season? And Steph Curry putting up only 30.3 fantasy points the next game? I can't really imagine another scenario other than Curry and the gang smoking the Pelicans while the two-time MVP catching fire en route to a 45-50 FP game. I can pretty much say the same for Kevin Durant but KD is $300 more expensive Read More

January 27, 2016– DFS Basketball Best Value Picks

January 27, 2016-- DFS Basketball Best Value Picks
The Studs
Karl-Anthony Towns, C ($7,000)
The 2015 No. 1 overall pick is on fire lately, averaging 48. 25 fantasy points over the last four games. His last game against a very capable Cavaliers defense is very impressive (26 points and 12 rebounds, 50.25 FP in 30 minutes) and a matchup with the fast-paced OKC Thunder promises another stat-filled night for the rookie.
Isaiah Thomas, PG ($7,800)
Thomas has been very consistent this season where Read More

What the Corey Brewer trade meant for fantasy owners

As busy as teams are right now, I would've mistaken everything as a February trade deadline rush. Clearly, all the General Managers pulled the trigger for one reason and one reason only: for the improvement of the team.
For fantasy owners, we couldn't care less. (Actually, we do, but not to the fullest sense.) All we wanted is see what these transactions do or will do to our teams and then act like a smart GM will do.
The trade that went through Friday was minor compared to the one that swung Read More
