FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (12/10/17)

There are only six games on Sunday so I'll be addressing the "all-day" slate. Today's theme is rebound games. Nearly all of the players I am advising are lined up for rebound games and most or high-risk plays. When you take a player who is not guaranteed to score, you tread into muddy territory that...

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (12/9/17)

Sunday starts off early with Wizards @ Clippers at 2:30PM, followed by Heat @ Brooklyn at 5PM. Both games offer a ton of value, especially in Clipper and Wizard backcourts. John Wall missing time means the Wizards will look to Tim Frazier for replacement production and opposing point guards have an grossly more favorable matchup.... Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (12/7/17): NBA DFS Advice For FanDuel

A small slate of games means even smaller chance of error. You will need to be precise with your picks and make sure you pick the right players that will be going off on Thursday night. Luckily, even though the options are limited, all the teams scheduled to play have offenses that have been playing... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (12/2/17): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

With an eight game slate on Saturday, we have plenty of cheap options that have the opportunity to turn the December narratives in their favor. There are not many teams that will on the low scoring end like last night. Even the Grizzlies will be forced to an increased amount of shots against the Cavaliers.... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/30/17): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/25/17): NBA DFS Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

There was no basketball on Thanksgiving so I did what any staunch NBA fan would do. Play Call Of Duty all day and eat fast food instead of a Thanksgiving feast. Now that every team got a small day of rest, we are on the second day of saturated NBA slates. With a 10 game... Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/20/17): NBA DFS Advice For FanDuel, DraftKings

There are only two things that can make Monday's bearable. Unemployment and 11-game NBA slates. With so many games tonight, it's going to be easy to find picks that are going to slide under the radar. While stretching your salary is going to be important, Russell Westbrook has finally fallen beneath the $10,000 threshold, meaning... Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/18/17): NBA DFS Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

We have a fantastic seven game slate this Saturday and the picks are plentiful. On nights like these I like to stray away from the obvious picks and give you options that you might not have considered. The 76ers-Warriors matchup is the obvious game to stack due to potential of points being scored, while the... Read More

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/16/17): NBA DFS Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/11/17): NBA DFS Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

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

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/9/17): NBA DFS Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

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

Lance Stephenson Shows Why He Should Remain On The Wire

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

Elfrid Payton Picks Up Where He Left Off

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

Frank Ntilikina Continues To Show Consistency In Loss To Magic

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

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/04/17): NBA DFS Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

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...

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/02/17): NBA DFS Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

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

Ricky Rubio Drops 30 In Overtime Win Over Trail Blazers

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

Tyreke Evans Goes Off For Season-High 32 Points In Loss To Magic

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

Marcus Smart Finds Passive Role In Celtics Offense

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

T.J. McConnell Making The Most Of His Minutes

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

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (10/28/17): NBA Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

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

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (10/26/17): NBA Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

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

Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (10/21/17): NBA Advice for FanDuel, DraftKings

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

Lonzo Ball Posts A Dud Against Clippers

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

Russell Westbrook Posts Triple-Double In Debut Win Over Knicks

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...

Robin Lopez And Lauri Markkanen Lead Bulls In Loss To Raptors

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

Dillon Brooks Creates Noise In Win Over Pelicans

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 Already At Peak Form After Win Over Celtics

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...
