DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/23/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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...

How Sustainable Is This Version Of Bradley Beal?

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/20/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

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

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

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (1/17/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/16/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/13/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/12/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

Will Barton Is Returning Soon And The League Isn't Ready

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...

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (1/10/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/9/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

I Am Disappointed In A Lot Of You (Week 12 Waiver Wire Adds)

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/6/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/5/19): NBA DFS Lineups

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

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (1/3/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

A three game slate means the options are limited and we need to be perfect with all our picks. Since stacking is guaranteed for small slates, make sure you distribute the wealth so you aren't banking on just one game. The Rockets and Warriors are pretty much guaranteed to engage in a shoot-out, giving Steph... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (1/2/19): NBA DFS Lineups

Last night was a massive night in terms of DFS and fantasy basketball in general. Players posted huge stat lines, career-highs, and we even had Jusuf Nurkic post a rare 5x5. I could spend hours talking about yesterday's slate, but instead, let's look forward to the big games tonight. The Nets and the Pelicans will... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/30/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Six games total today, but DraftKings only has five on the main slate. With the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Lakers having the highest projected point total tonight, you do not want get totally blinded by that projection. With the Trail Blazers facing the 76ers and the Mavericks taking on the Thunder, there are more... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/29/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Nine games total today, but the Brooklyn Nets - Milwaukee Bucks game isn't on the main slate or any slate for that matter, so we'll skip over what could be one of the better games tonight. It won't be the highest scoring game like the Pelicans-Rockets should be, but do be wary of the idea... Read More

Centers Went From Rare To Everywhere

Late-December and early-January is right about the time when players mysteriously suffer from an un-curable disease called "rest." It's common and floods every teams locker room at some point. Luckily it only lasts one game, usually on the front or back end of back-to-back games. Teams are starting to totally scrap game plans because of... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (12/27/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

We have a more relaxed, 5-game slate after an action-packed last two days of basketball. After the way the Lakers capped off their Christmas-day win over the Warriors, going against the Kings makes it hard not to stack the entire team. To make things better, the Kings are coming off a loss to the Clippers... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/26/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Initially, I wrote a FanDuel article when it was supposed to be DraftKings. Luckily, the picks I had planned didn't change, but the prices did. I apologize and the this article has been updated accordingly. Mostly, I apologize to Tom Vecchio, who puts out dynamite content on Wednesdays, and whose clicks I probably stole...my bad....

Let's Get Monte Morris Ownership Levels Rightfully Above 50%

If only we had a cover picture of Monte Morris...Anyway, I'll be sure to spread the knowledge around to the rest of the league as well, but there have only been 20-odd players that have been more valuable than Monte Morris over the past two weeks. With all the injuries and the talent the Nuggets... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/23/18): NBA DFS Lineups

With nine games on the slate, I can already tell you that the Pelicans-Kings will be one of the higher scoring contests. I'm also eyeing the Celtics-Hornets game for assured value, but I will be mostly focusing on three games, NOP @ SAC, CHA @ BOS, and LAC @ GS. The Pelicans should have no... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/22/18): NBA DFS Lineups

With six games on the main slate, you really don't need all that much value tonight. You will need that one sleeper to come in clutch, but other than that, go with the safer, mid-tier priced options. Since Chris Paul is out, look for Brandon Knight to see a ton of minutes tonight. Other than... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (12/20/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

There shouldn't be much question about strategy tonight. With only two games, you already know the players you will be rostering. There is no REAL reason to pursue any risky picks with so few players available, so just go after players like Danilo Gallinari, Tobias Harris, and P.J. Tucker. You don't need to go cheap...

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/19/18): NBA DFS Lineups

With 24 teams playing tonight, it's impressive how both Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday still remain at the top of the DFS mountain. Both need to be played tonight and there really shouldn't be much question about it. The Bucks rank in the top 10 against opposing guards, but since they are in the bottom... Read More

Not only is this article late, but half-way through my writing of it, it got deleted. So excuse my angry-ish tone. Honestly, it probably won't be much different from how I normally write. That being said, I am going to be even shorter than I was in my previous article, excuse the boldness. If you... Read More

Waiver Wire Adds or Injury Report? (Week 9)

Injuries and rest are starting to open up minutes for some reserves, so let's recap some of the injuries that recently happened and who will be returning soon. One of the more important losses this season was Will Barton, who should be coming back within the next month. He allowed players like Malik Beasley, Torrey... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/16/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Today is a weird day of basketball. With only four games on the main slate, I'll be sure to throw in some picks for the early game at the end of the intro. Although the Nuggets-Raptors game is not projected to be the highest-scoring, it should be the most competitive with the major players doing... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (12/15/18): NBA DFS Lineups

With six games on the main slate, we really get to test our accuracy. On night's with massive slates, sometimes luck is our best attribute. With smaller slates you need to stack high scoring games and be perfect with value picks, if you even go that far. With 5-8 game slates, you need the perfect... Read More
