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
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
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
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?
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
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
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
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
