There are only two games tonight which means there is not much for me to say. You need the most productivity and a balanced budget if you are going to want to cash out. On nights like these, you need the perfect lineup. Just about every player will have a high ownership rate so the... Read More

With a juicy 11-game NBA slate, WHO NEEDS COLLEGE FOOTBALL? Saturdays are for the ballers and there will be no shortage of that with 22 teams set to play. There are plenty of teams coming off of back-to-backs, but Vegas is still predicting most of the games to be high scoring so the options are... Read More

There are five games on the slate tomorrow and spreads are nice and fat. The lowest scoring game of the night, according to Vegas, is going to be the Sacramento Kings - Philadelphia 76ers and even that should be high-scoring close game. The 76ers are trending upwards in a hurry and the Kings have an... Read More

Aron Baynes Dominates The Lakers

Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes was an absolute beast against the Lakers. Being cliche is only necessary when someone truly exceeds expectations, which in this case is very true. While Horford is out with concussion protocol, Baynes just went from backup center on the bench even on game nights, to a must-play in nearly evry... Read More

Indiana Pacers shooting guard Lance Stephenson has not made himself unplayable in the eyes of Pacers staff and fans, but his stat lines are unlikely to waver from what they have been. The Pacers will have Glenn Robinson III returning at some point and Stephenson is point dependent as it is. He might be a... Read More

Orlando Magic point guard Elfrid Payton has an iconic mop, and it deserves more recognition for it's incredible stability, even in late-game situations. Through the fourth quarter, the Knicks were firing back and trying to make another comeback, but Payton and his hair were able to dissect the defense like he never missed any time.... Read More

New York Knicks point guard Frank Ntilikina did not eclipse season highs this game, but he continued his strong play in the backup role. It is only a matter of time before Ntilikina starts seeing more minutes and eventually works his way into the starting rotation. It may not be until late in the season,... Read More

There are only four games on the slate this Saturday and truth be told, it's going to be a fairly "generic" night. The Warriors-Nuggets game is the only one lined up to be a high scoring affair, while the Pelicans and Timberwolves should both cruise to wins. Pistons-Kings will be the game to watch because... Read More

Oh boy. A two-game slate. Can you imagine all the possibilities of a two-game slate?! You're right. There aren't many. With this upsetting slate of games, it is absolutely necessary you pick the most productive players. There is very small room for error, although the pendulum swings both ways. Finding those sleeper picks can hurt... Read More

Utah Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio scored 30 points in an overtime win over the Portland Trail Blazers. On an extremely rare occasion, Rubio only tallied one assist but still managed to score, especially late in the game. While this might be a bigger boost for Rubio and the Jazz' chemistry, look for a nice... Read More

Memphis Grizzlies guard/forward Tyreke Evans has been lighting up the scoreboard, and most fantasy owners have just about cleaned up any last Evans sighting there might be on the waiver wire. With all that, Evans has shown no signs of slowing down, but mind you this performance comes at the expense of the Grizzlies playing without... Read More

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart racked up eight assists only halfway into the Celtics game against the Sacramento Kings, which is much of the reason the Celtics were able to control a majority of the game. Smart is not known for his scoring, so he adapted a role that focused on drawing defenders and successfully... Read More

Philadelphia 76ers point guard T.J. McConnell posted 12 points, six rebounds and seven assists in 26 minutes against the Atlanta Hawks. While Ben Simmons might have stolen the spotlight in the win, when it comes to fantasy, McConnell continued his consistent play. He is going to be a candidate you can sneak into a trade... Read More

With eight games on the slate, it's going to be easy for you to find options. Make sure you pick the players that have been consistently producing, and sleeper options you have confidence in. Ok, so you might not have confidence in a lot of sleepers picks today, but that's where I come in. You... Read More

With only five games on the slate for Thursday, it's going to be a great time to stack the late games and watch the points fly. Clippers vs Trail Blazers means Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are going to be top options, Jordan more than Griffin due to Jordan's lower price. Other than that, Giannis... Read More

You don't need to be buttered up with some, "We're a few games in..." intro nonsense. We both know why you're here. I got the goods, you want the services. Uh, that sounds bad...Maybe an intro IS the best way to start these things. Well, too late now. It's an 11-game slate this beautiful Saturday,... Read More

Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball spent most of his first game with Clippers guard Patrick Beverley inside his jersey. He managed to rebound well, but only hit one shot in his debut. For Lonzo Ball owners, this is good because it can only get better from here. Lonzo's stock is still worth minimal, but... Read More

Many owners were skeptical that Paul George and Carmelo Anthony would take away from Russell Westbrook's incredible nightly stat line. Lucky for owners, the additions did exactly what some (ME) people thought would happen. It only made his stats that much better. His points are going to take a serious dip, but those assists will... Read More

Both Lauri Markkanen and Robin Lopez headlined the Bulls loss to the Raptors by putting up great stats even though they were significantly behind most of the game. The Bulls are going to be a small dumpster fire this year (so a trashcan fire) and Lopez will be a bright spot. Markannen needs to be... Read More

The New Orleans Pelicans defense....better yet, the Pelicans as a whole, looked utterly terrible. The defense was bad and outside of their star players, they could not get anything going. Jrue Holiday, Jordan Crawford and Tony Allen were forced to generate all the backcourt offense and it did not work out. What did work out... Read More

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 37 points over the Celtics last night, and fantasy owners are already claiming they have the next MVP rostered. Sure, that is fun to say and Antetokounmpo will be doing this all year, but the Celtics defense is borderline despicable so expect SOMEONE to come through and halt Antetokounmpo. He is almost... Read More

Jaylen Brown played in a back-to-back last night and continued his high-volume shooting. Without Gordon Hayward, Brown seems to be owning the opportunity. After a potential first-game fluke, Brown proves that he will be aggressive on every possession, regardless of the result. He needs to be picked up before this trend becomes a normality and... Read More

There are only three games tonight which means you have to be pinpoint with your selections. Making sure you find the right sleeper and the perfect mid-range guys will make or break your night. With big money options like Russell Westbrook on opening night against the Knicks, you can already see the stats piling up.... Read More

Kevin Durant may have made the last shot, but time ran out and James Harden had the spotlight in the season opener. In the debut game, both Chris Paul and Harden distributed well and will show this type of consistency night in and night out. Other than that, the Rockets will be similar to last season, with... Read More

Nick Young was lights-out in the season opener for the Golden State Warriors, scoring 23 points, going 6-for-7 from three-point land. Young fits this system absolutely perfectly, but assuming this production will continue is optimistic. He might be making an early case for 6th man of the year, but once again, he is three-dependent. Unfortunately,... Read More

It was a great night for LeBron James, who put his dominance on display over a smaller, Gordon Hayward-less Boston Celtics. Not that Hayward would have been able to stop James, but it could have done something. LeBron took multiple Celtics to the post and got through of al them. Nothing has changed to James'... Read More

Jaylen Brown might have stolen the storyline with his 25-point outing, but do not expect this to be a common trend. He took 23 shots and while the Celtics are now forced to go small after the injury to Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Marcus Smart will receive most of the shots that... Read More

According to recent developments announced by Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, Gordon Hayward has suffered exactly what the title says, a dislocated ankle and fractured tibia. The recovery time for a fractured tibia is around 12 weeks, meaning that Hayward could be eyeing, mind you this is not coming from a doctor, but a... Read More

In the next installment to my fantasy guide, we look towards wings -- Shooting Guards, Small Forwards, and the various combinations thereof. Some of these players' position eligibility varies depending on the site, so it’s best I keep it simple and use names with explanations. The following players, in a sense, “have my blessing,” (whatever... Read More

It’s been way too long. The NFL does not satisfy my taste for entertainment like it used to and this offseason has been painfully exhilarating. Luckily, we are in the waning stages of the NBA offseason and every team will have played their last preseason game by Friday. While the takes from preseason must be... Read More
