About Jake Finnen - RotoBaller

I'm the Enes Kanter of Rotoballer. Triple-double no assists.

Jake Finnen - RotoBaller has written 267 articles so far, you can find them below.

Just three games on the slate which means that the All-Star Break is finally here. The biggest storyline continues to follow the Pelicans like a dark cloud, with Anthony Davis semi-willingly causing tension. Since he has asked for a trade, he has posted some of his worst box score numbers in his career. That will... Read More

We are just at the start of the All-Star Break so of course we have our "last" massive slate for this section of the season. With so many games available, you need to find the super value play to help create a foundation for your lineup. With all the recent trades, there are still a... Read More

A LOT of "things" happened on Thursday. The most important "thing" is up for debate between two Eastern Conference teams. While Marc Gasol joining the Raptors may not have been seen as a blockbuster deal, I do see it having a drastic impact on the Raptors frontcourt. With Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol anchoring the... Read More

Only five games on today's slate so I'l spend this intro covering the early games and then you know the rest. Unfortunately, all the good games will be over and done with before the main slate even starts, so if you want to watch good basketball today, the games start at 2 pm EST. In... Read More

A hefty eight game slate for us this Saturday and one game sticks out more than any other. The Rockets - Thunder game should be the most competitive and that means the upside is there. Rostering both James Harden and Russell Westbrook seems nearly impossible, and Paul George actively talking about defending Harden makes the... Read More

We have a decent sized six game slate tonight, and in all honesty this is not the greatest grouping of games. It seems that outside of the Trail Blazers - Spurs and Pacers - Clippers, there just isn't that much upside available. You can go in any direction you want as far as lineup building... Read More

This biggest question surrounding tonight's lineup construction will NOT be whether or not James Harden forces this game to be a blowout, but just how many points he scores on the way to this game becoming a blowout. Plenty of people will be fading Harden tonight, but you know I have optimism about this matchup... Read More

If you are like me, you are excited about the freedom you will have tonight and I'm not talking about DFS lineups. Tonight is the Super Bowl and I probably don't have to tell you that, but I had no clue it was Super Bowl weekend until Friday afternoon. Still not feeling well so I'll... Read More

I have the flu. I'm going to make this quick. My apologies, but hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow and return with another just, oh-so-exciting DraftKings article. Warriors-Lakers is aimed to be the highest scoring, but I would suggest targeting both the Suns-Hawks and the Kings-76ers contests if you are looking for the most upside. The... Read More

As of this moment, there are few players making as big of a splash in fantasy leagues as Jahlil Okafor.... OK, maybe the Kristaps Porzingis trade and Anthony Davis trade rumors are the only things people can talk about, but it shouldn't overshadow everything Okafor has done in the past two weeks. He has been... Read More

The first two games of the night are the complete opposite of the rest of the slate, so note the point totals of those two games before making your lineup. The last four games of the night have a ton of upside and tonight should be all about Steph Curry. He's not cheap, but take... Read More

A very appealing eight-game slate tonight with value littered throughout. The lineups have a wide variety of who you want to set as your foundation, but just be warned that most DFS players will be targeting the Pelicans-Nuggets game. With the amount of injuries and value there, it's going to be hard to just pass... Read More

It's really annoying when the intro to your article focuses on one player, and we don't even have a photo of him we can use, so enjoy this picture of Caris Levert. Before the season started, the Brooklyn Nets were not looking like a team that would be contending for anything other than reasonable draft... Read More

In tonight's six-game slate, there is one game that is going to be the annoyance of the night, Magic versus Rockets. Everyone is contemplating James Harden. Even at a ridiculous, sky-scraping $13,700, you can't simply just say, "Oh, Chris Paul is back? Yeah, he's going to fall back down to Earth." That's a lazy assessment... Read More

With only five games total, it's unfortunate DraftKings won't consider the Pelicans-Spurs game as part of the main slate.....Selfish. Anyway, after last nights smorgasbord of competitive games, expect the complete opposite tonight. The teams that are playing aren't terrible, it's just the matchups are NOT enticing. Even though four games offers some type of variety... Read More

We have a fairly interesting slate this Thursday. With the first game starting at 8PM, we have more than enough time to perfect our lineups. Even with only four games, there is upside everywhere. Anthony Davis is sidelined, so expect Jrue Holiday and Julius Randle to step up once again, with Jahlil Okafor offering up... Read More

It's about time we got back to the massive slates. With 10 games, there is no shortage of upside tonight. The Knicks and Rockets have the highest point total so far, but I think DFS players need to be aware of the upside in the Pelicans-Pistons game. Without Anthony Davis, look for a Jrue Holiday-led... Read More

This biggest trend in the NBA recently has been Bradley Beal and his emergence as a clear-cut All-Star, doing everything he can to get his team in the playoffs. In the fantasy realm, Beal has nearly doubled his value and it's increasing every game. The offensive burden will always be on his shoulders and he... Read More

There are only three games total today so while I would love to dive into each game specifically...this slate simply doesn't need a full deep dive. Pacers and Hornets will be a battle between backccourts, with the Indiana frontcourt offering plenty of support to help the Pacers get a fairly easy win at home. Until... Read More

To be completely honest, we have a fairly lame 8-game slate. Only two games are really projected to be high-scoring affairs, while most of the games are out-of-conference contests between a "good team" and a "bad team." I have confidence, the Bulls-Heat, Hawks-Celtics, and Pacers-Mavericks will all be worth of stacking and should dominate the... Read More

There are six games being played today and although the Knicks and Wizards are playing in London at 3PM EST, we still have a nice five-game slate to keep us warm through the night. Right off the bat, I can tell you two areas that I will be happily targeting with my lineups. The first... Read More

We rebound after Tuesday's slate with eight games on Wednesday. Some of us expected another game of the season last night with two of the league's best teams playing, but instead the Warriors proved once again just how much better they really are. Tonight, they play at home against Anthony Davis. While Davis is always... Read More

Unfortunately, there are only four games on the main slate. Those four contain plenty of upside, so while I will talk plenty about that specific slate, I do want to cover some players in the earlier games. If you need value, Landry Shamet, J.J. Redick, Noah Vonleh and Allonzo Trier are all solid plays. There... Read More

There are only six games on the main slate today and it's already looking like value plays are going to need to pay off. If you aren't paying up for Russell Westbrook tonight, you have to play either Nikola Jokic, Anthony Davis or a mix of Donovan Mitchell, Zach LaVine, and Kemba Walker. All of... Read More

This intro will be spent talking about Will Barton's season-long projection and how it will impact the rest of the Nuggets. If you own you him, definitely throw out some trade offers to see what the return on him is looking like. If anyone is dangling an injured Robert Covington, Tobias Harris, Klay Thompson, or... Read More

There are just four games total tonight, so excuse the repetitiveness of this article. Instead of going directly for the cheapest value, I tried to find players with, potentially, the lowest ownership rates. You are going to have to stack some teams tonight so don't feel bad if you end up taking a bunch of... Read More

After eight games on Tuesday, we have a jam-packed 10-game slate Wednesday. Usually I wait till the mornings to post my articles to make sure all the latest injury updates have been recorded, but I'm feeling ambitious. There are plenty of solid matchups and while I always make sure I include value picks, I would... Read More

Every time I come back to write this article, I really look for some players with really low-ownership rates. It never fails that three or four of the guys that NEED to be owned are below 10%. Luckily, Derrick White has been just about picked up in most leagues, but he's still at 38% right... Read More

With four main slate games and three early games, I am going to spend this intro talking about the early slate, using the rest of the article to find those sneaky value plays for tonight. The Timberwolves and Lakers rightfully have the highest point total for these early games, so it's hard not to advise... Read More

An ideal seven-game slate is the perfect chance to rebound after a tough loss last night or to keep the momentum going into the weekend. Regardless of how you are feeling about yesterday, the light is shining today. It didn't take long to find the players I want anchoring my lineups tonight and while the... Read More
