With six games on the main slate, we really get to test our accuracy. On night's with massive slates, sometimes luck is our best attribute. With smaller slates you need to stack high scoring games and be perfect with value picks, if you even go that far. With 5-8 game slates, you need the perfect... Read More

Injuries and rest are starting to open up minutes for some reserves, so let's recap some of the injuries that recently happened and who will be returning soon. One of the more important losses this season was Will Barton, who should be coming back within the next month. He allowed players like Malik Beasley, Torrey... Read More

Wednesday had a massive slate with came with some serious stat lines. The only team that is playing on the second night of a back-to-back is the Dallas Mavericks so feel free to look there for some value and upside from the reserves like J.J. Barea and Wesley Matthews. Matthews did play 27 minutes in... Read More

After yesterday's dinky, three game slate, we get the chance to really flex our options with 11 games on on Wednesday's schedule. Out of all 11, only three are out-of-conference games so make sure you are targeting the more competitive matchups tonight. The Grizzlies and Trail Blazers should be close, especially seeing how Portland is... Read More

The title says it all. As the trade deadline nears, more and more players will find new homes, but the biggest two names to move are Alec Burks and Kyle Korver. Kyle Korver remains irrelevant in most leagues, but Burks has exploded into must-own territory. With players like Victor Oladipo and Devin Booker out with... Read More

We aren't messing around today with some serious rivalry games. They may not have a ton of history, but both the Raptors and Bucks are fighting for a top spot in the East these games could absolutely determine a tiebreaker. While the Raptors do have the talent to make this game high-scoring and competitive, I... Read More

Another big night in the NBA and there will be plenty of superstars to choose from. With 10 games on the slate, Nikola Jokic and LeBron James and at the top of my list for must-plays. The Nuggets are on the second night of a back-to-back, so while some of the Nuggets may experience some... Read More

After yesterday, we get a chance to relax with a horrible three-game slate. I'm not joking, tonight's slate is just downright ugly. I won't get the chance to bore you with game analysis because truthfully, everyone knows what's happening tonight. The Celtics are beating the Knicks, the Trail Blazers are beating the Suns, and the... Read More

This is going to be one of our most competitive nights this season. Ten games on the slate and because each one has so much potential, I'll briefly go over each game starting with the Cavaliers and Warriors. This game is pretty clearly the one to skip out on. You could go Steph Curry or... Read More

With six games total and four on DraftKings main slate, we don't really have many choices. Bigs are far and few between tonight so make sure you find those one or two value plays and combine it with certain consistency. There are not that many overpriced superstars so look for Damian Lillard and Joel Embiid... Read More

I hope you guys are enjoying this season as much as I am. After being seven weeks in, we can really see how well our drafting paid off. Many of you are scrambling to help fills gaps left by injuries while others are just looking for anything to help stop the bleeding. Over the past... Read More

Out of the six games being played today, half the teams are on the second half of a back-to-back. The Detroit Pistons, Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards, Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, and Boston Celtics will all be playing again tonight, but none were in that close of games yesterday. Not that fatigue won't be a major... Read More

I know you all are already jumping at this three-game slate tonight with only the Clippers playing two nights in a row. The Clippers didn't shoot particularly well against the Suns Wednesday night, but they took them out of the game early, and most of the starters outside from Tobias Harris didn't play a full... Read More

A fantastic 10-game slate tonight with Pelicans-Wizards dominating the early point predictions. That game has stack-ability all over the place so make sure you are looking for updates or any potential injury alerts. Kemba Walker, Ben Simmons, James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Paul George, C.J. McCollum, and Devin Booker are just a few players... Read More

Now that we are in week six, the big problem for most players is the lack of bigs available on the wire. In most of my leagues, the wire is dry of new centers to see coming, meaning you might have to look for a player like Taj Gibson or Mike Muscala to fill any... Read More

The slate is pretty staggered today so I'll be sure to include at least one pick from the early games. I don't like to focus on anything other than the main slate, but some picks just needed to be exposed. This is one of the tastier slates I've seen this season and almost every game... Read More

After yesterdays helping of NBA basketball, we get a more relaxed 7-game slate Saturday. Most of the teams playing today are on the second half a back-to-back, so make sure when you decide to fade someone, you have reason. Players like Russell Westbrook will be faded because he is a high-energy player who is coming... Read More

A massive 13-game slate and if I wasn't lazy, I'd check to see if this was the biggest slate this season. The 76ers and Pelicans are set to have the highest scoring game and the value is absolutely there. Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler almost need to be started, along with Damian Lillard having plenty... Read More

Sorry for the late jump on the article, but I'll make this quick and as informative as possible. There is a lot of value tonight and I'll get to that, but we need to focus on the superstars. There's a common theme of top-tier players facing stingy defenses. Luckily this does nothing more than scare... Read More

The four games lined up for Sunday's main slate have actually got some intrigue. Instead of thinking of some filler, I can just go over each game outlining players that won't be listed below. The Lakers-Heat game will revolve around LeBron James and his ability to incorporate his teammates early, allowing them to carry the... Read More

A nine game slate with value located all over the place has me way too excited, way too early. Plenty of teams are on the second night of a back-to-back, which means certain players will be seeing a few extra minutes, while other starters will be forced to carry a heavier workload. The top-tier of... Read More

We are no into week 5 and like most our fantasy teams, NBA teams are still figuring out the direction they plan to head as we hit the grueling part of the regular season. Younger players that have yet to adapt to the conditioning of the season will slowly start to fall off, opening the... Read More

There are only three games tonight and while that usually seems like a bummer, it's still something we can work with. Sometimes having more games and the extra options are a nice bonus that alludes for very creative lineups that can cash out. With smaller slates, we need to be precise and have to make... Read More

An 11-game slate is just what we needed after last night's measly 3-game slate. The options seem almost endless, but there are specific matchups that need to be exposed. The Wizards are still struggling across the board, the Magic are trending up but lack defensive firepower, and the Lakers-Trail Blazers is going to be the... Read More

We are four weeks into the NBA fantasy season and we already have our first crop of names you might not have heard of that will definitely be relevant. Unfortunately, injuries are starting to pile up and rotations that worked early in the year are quickly being scrapped. Teams like the New York Knicks seem... Read More

There are 10 games total today, but we are only going to focus on the main, 8-game slate. Tonight's games are not that appealing from an outside perspective and all but one are inter-conference games. This is good for competition and it gives us a good idea of what teams to really target today. Immediately,... Read More

There are only four games tonight and every day we are seeing progress with each team. The start to every season is difficult because of random rotations, coaching changes and chemistry issues, so by the end of this month, every team will be in a more concrete direction, rather than still trying to figure out... Read More

A massive upgrade from last night's measly slate with 10 games available. DFS lineups tonight will once again be revolving around the Lakers and their lack of defense. With the point totals for each game the Lakers play nearing 235-240, they find themselves in a very susceptible position and all the Timberwolves will have serious... Read More

There are seven total games today with only six on DraftKings' main slate, but enough with un-intriguing intro sentences. There are plenty of quality games being played tonight and the Trail Blazers - Timberwolves and Lakers - Raptors will be the games to watch and stack. LeBron needs to be played in most lineups and... Read More

There are seven games tonight and none of them are all that appealing right off the bat, although the Lakers-Trail Blazers game has my early attention along with Hornets-Cavaliers. Both will be high-scoring affairs, but only the Lakers and Trail Blazers offer serious, consistent value. The Celtics-Pacers game is enticing, but it's hard to trust... Read More
