Deeper Fantasy Basketball Waiver Adds for Week 4

To this point, Jonathan Isaac has been the most improved player in the league and it's not really in question. He is contributing in every way, not to mention dominating the defensive categories early in the season. This should continue and his role should not be hard to sustain with how the Magic offense is... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/9/19): NBA DFS Lineups

After watching last night's game versus the Knicks, It's hard to trust anyone on the Dallas Mavericks not named Luka Doncic or Kristaps Porzingis. There is no offense outside of these two players and it seems that the team is lost even when they have the ball. Hope about Dallas making the playoffs is all... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/8/19): NBA DFS Lineups

We have an 11 game slate tonight and that means we are going to have a ton of variety in our lineups. Per usual, we need some of those super-value plays to open up the chance to play the superstars, so this article is going to be full of low-to-mid level options. An important matchup... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/7/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Sorry this is so late, but my puppy likes to sleep on my lap, in the only place I can comfortably type. There have been a bunch of errors and mistakes that I probably missed, but you don't come here for the grammar. You come here for my unquestionable, never-been-wrong, DFS knowledge and that's just...

Deeper Fantasy Basketball Waiver Adds for Week 3

The NBA season is off to one of the best starts in recent years and it has already translated to very entertaining fantasy basketball.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/2/19): NBA DFS Lineups

One specific aspect of analyzing basketball that will gradually become more important as the season progresses is stacking teams in back-to-backs. This early in the season it won't carry nearly as much weight, but knowing when and where to stack effectively will change your entire strategy when creating lineups for these mid-sized slates. For example,... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (11/1/19): NBA DFS Lineups

Last night with only three games, there was a bit of a struggle to find solid value plays. Luckily, you read my article and made the most of Frank Jackson's output and are looking for similar production tonight. To be completely honest, this whole Russell Westbrook and James Harden playing well together is driving me... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (10/31/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

After a hefty Wednesday night slate, Thursday night's game have plenty of hype to live up to. With the Clippers as the only team playing on the second night of a back-to-back, there still isn't a ton of potential for the Spurs. Bryn Forbes and Dejounte Murray have been gems in the lower-tier of point... Read More

Good Monday friends. It's been a few months since I cranked out one of these deep waiver wire adds articles and for the first week of the season I am throwing out some juicy names.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (10/26/19): NBA DFS Lineups

There are nine teams playing in the second half of their first back-to-back of the season. Three of those games are between two teams that played Friday night and there is plenty of value to be found within those contests. Specifically looking at some of those teams, names like Jeff Green and Nemanja Bjelica specifically... Read More

Nine contests on Friday's slate and there is no shortage of betting action. We will get to the DFS picks in a minute, but there are pretty significant lines floating around right now that need to be addressed. Right now, at 3:09 AM CST, I am seeing the Celtics -3 versus the Raptors in Boston... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (10/24/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Small slates with small sample sized don't really allow us to dive into every matchup from a solid analytical angle, but with teams playing their first games, we can expect to see some outliers right off the bat. Young players are going to come out shooting, so whether they convert or not will make or... Read More

Carsen Edwards - Fantasy Basketball Rookie Profile

Finding the one or two rookies from each class that actual carry value is one of the best parts of fantasy basketball.

Maurice Harkless: 2019-20 Fantasy Basketball Sleeper

Not only have the Clippers done a complete overhaul of their roster, but they have added the necessary role players to help create the perfect atmosphere for their superstars. Forward Maurice Harkless is one of those players who not only can score from anywhere on the court, but his defensive focus is his primary threat... Read More

Hopefully you have been enjoying these playoffs as much as I have, and while DFS has been tougher than ever, it's still a good time seeing how you stack up with such limited options. You should not be gambling if you are short on money, so don't forget to see the fun in DFS basketball.... Read More

The second round of playoffs is officially set and we have two great games lines up for Sunday. They start pretty early so make sure you are up early enough to catch some early-afternoon updates.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/27/19): NBA DFS Lineups

It's been a few days since we had a legitimate slate of games, so expect tonight's contest to be filled to capacity earlier than usual. As you already know, the options are limited and you are going to be forced to stack the Raptors-76ers contest. It has a higher probability of scoring more points, so... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/24/19): NBA DFS Lineups

Too bad I can't recap last night's games because there is so much to unpack from a non-DFS standpoint. Since you can simply go on Twitter and read what all the clearly, upstanding individuals on that platform tweet, there's no reason to continue to talk about something you don't care about anymore. With just two... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/21/19): NBA DFS Lineups

The Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook saga continues and they continue to raise each others ceiling in DFS contests. Weirdly enough, you shouldn't NEED to roster either tonight to put up some serious numbers. Instead of spending up for any specific player, I'd say play some of the Warriors, mainly because of the lack of value... Read More

For some of you, tomorrow is Easter. For others, today is Christmas. Either way, enjoy the day with some all-day basketball starting at 1:00pm EST. The first two games are going to be the most competitive and the games will slowly become more predictable as the day goes on. The Pistons cannot handle the depth... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (4/18/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

With the significantly smaller slates, making winning lineups are going to be tougher than they have been all season. Each teams rotation has shrunk, and players are going to find consistent value more scarce as the playoffs move on. Immediate backups like Patty Mills are always going to be considered safe options, but don't expect... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/14/19): NBA DFS Lineups

If you missed last night's games, I highly recommend taking the time to watch. It's quite hilarious when narratives from regular and previous season bleed into the playoffs. Truthfully, I believed that the Raptors were one of the best teams and along with the Bucks, would make it to the Conference Finals, but there's a... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/13/19): NBA DFS Lineups

It's about time the playoffs started. These last two months have been entertaining, but dreadful from a competitive standpoint. Teams absolutely pumped the brakes in March and April, which makes sense, but also made it annoying to track games that started true upward trends or were just flukes. Hopefully you are still playing and truth... Read More

This is it. The last big slate of the season and unfortunately we don't even get the full schedule. We still get eight games which is plenty, but it doesn't give us the satisfaction of cashing out in a late-season, 14-game slate. The Denver Nuggets have already announced some of their starters are going to... Read More

Only two games today so there's not much that needs to be said. Without breaking it down you have two choices. Realistically, you have one choice. The Nets versus Bucks is the only game really worth targeting because of the security behind it. Jimmy Butler is considered questionable for right now, but any change in... Read More

We continue the end of the season grind with a decent NBA Sunday schedule. There are only four games on the main slate with two early games.

Not too many options tonight and although the early slate of games might be more interesting than the later grouping, there is still plenty of flexibility when it comes to composing a roster. If you are playing in the early slate, James Harden, Spencer Dinwiddie, Joe Harris, and Aron Baynes are your go-to guys. All... Read More
