Kendrick Nunn and Deeper Waiver Wire Adds (Week 2)

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. If you are new to following me, then you probably missed out Devonte' Graham, Thomas Bryant and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but... Read More

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (10/25/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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. Identifying them early can help you make some favorable trade offers and if you time it correctly, your team will be preparing for the playoffs only a few weeks into the season with... Read More

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (5/12/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/28/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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. The Rockets and Warriors series will be watched by a ton of people and for good reason, while the Warriors... Read More

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/20/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/7/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/6/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

Only three games today which means this article will be on the shorter end. I'll go through each game quickly and run through some options you have to play and use the remaining five spots to go over some value picks. I almost said you didn't need to play Steph Curry tonight, but with the... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/3/19): NBA DFS Lineups

This is one of the last day's of the season and the third biggest slate before playoffs. There a 13-game gem on Friday I will not be covering, but I'll be fully involved in the 14-game whopper on Sunday. Tonight there's 12 games meaning you will most likely hear one or two names you've never... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (3/31/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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. The Mavericks travel to play the Thunder, while the Pelicans host the Lakers. Out of every game, the Pelicans/Lakers contest will have the most DFS-relevance. Unfortunately, unless you... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (3/30/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

Not the conventional introduction, but since each team only has a few games left, we need to address Hassan Whiteside.

There are just five games on tonight's slate which is underwhelming, but after last nights grouping of games it only seems right. Six of the nine games were within 10 points, not including the Spurs/Charlotte game, which the Hornets won in overtime to keep their playoff hopes alive. The end of the regular season has...

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (3/24/19): NBA DFS Lineups

The past few nights have been the perfect indicator that NBA DFS is at a very weird point right now.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (3/23/19): NBA DFS Lineups

With eight games total today, DraftKings only has seven on the main slate. Of those seven games, only two really stick out as "should be good" games. This late in the season, some players will rest for no reason other than load management, and that means more in-game parity. Teams like the Mavericks will be... Read More

There are six games on tonight's slate, with three teams playing on the second night of a back-to-back. The Mavericks, Jazz, and Wizards all played yesterday, but only Washington went into overtime. The Jazz made light work of the Knicks and the only Mavericks player to play over 30 minutes was Justin Jackson. The Kings/Mavericks... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (3/20/19): NBA DFS Lineups

Since you have plenty of options tonight, don't feel the need to stack one specific game. The Heat and Spurs matchup seems to have the most upside because of value, but I'll talk more about that later. With Kyle Lowry missing some time, Fred Vanvleet instantly becomes a must-start prospect. The minutes will be there... Read More
