FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (11/1/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

With only six games on the slate tonight, we have to make sure we are precise with our picks. With both Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook available, the choice is yours, but I'm confidently rolling with Westbrook to avoid any late-scratches from the Pelicans organization. It is fairly easy to afford both tonight, so expect... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (10/31/18): NBA DFS Lineups

With seven games on the slate it's not hard to find options to play. There is a lack of consistent value due to the insecurity of team's rotations this early in the season, but for most players, we can see the direction they are trending. There are a decent number of superstars playing tonight, but... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (10/28/18): NBA DFS Lineups

There are four games total tomorrow and with only three on the main slate, the lineups might get a little repetitive. There are only a few options available altogether and when it comes to the top-tier players, the only viable option is Russell Westbrook. If he has one of his nights, he needs to be... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (10/27/18): NBA DFS Lineups

There are nine games on the slate and the Lakers are, once again, the team to stack. With multiple other superstars available, you have to go with one of the big four options tonight. Giannis Antetokounmpo has his work cut out for him in Orlando but it could lead to an early blowout, Anthony Davis... Read More

NBA Waiver Wire: Standard League Adds (Week 2)

With week one behind us, our teams are starting to fall into place and our weak spots and areas of improvement are becoming more evident. Instead of trading away everything and the kitchen sink, the waiver wire can be extremely useful given the proper insight. Finding a player that is primed to break out can... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (10/25/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

Only four games tonight, but they contain have some of the more dynamic offenses in the league. Despite the Lakers being the only team on the second night of a back-to-back, LeBron James is still a quality play. It would be the first time he would be playing in the Staples Center with a win...

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (10/24/18): NBA DFS Lineups

This is going to be one of our bigger slates this early in the season, so it'll be a little more risky to stack, but the Pheonix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers game is still the one to target. There are plenty of options to really flex your money with, but if you are spending... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (10/21/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Last night was an exciting night in the NBA and we get a more relaxed schedule Sunday. With only four games this early in the season, tonight will be one of the tougher slates. No matter what tool you use, what stats you prefer, none of them really matter at this point. The first few... Read More

NBA Waiver Wire: Standard League Adds (Week 1)

This is the first week of fantasy basketball and there are already plenty of names a case for why they need more minutes. Right off the bat and looking at last night, it's hard to ignore someone like Nik Stauskus. Guaranteed he will be the top scorer on your waiver wire, but his production is... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (10/20/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Feels good being back in the swing of things doesn't it? With the first weekend of basketball right ahead of us, Friday night was the perfect start. Multiple teams are going to be playing on the second night of a back-to-back, including both the Pacers/Nets and Knicks/Celtics games. I wouldn't avoid these games, but there... Read More

FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (10/18/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

We are officially on our second day of NBA DFS basketball and Thursday's three game slate has a lot to live up to. There are already plenty of names starting to emerge and unfortunately for the Miami Heat, they will be the only team on the second night of a back-to-back. A little cruel, but... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (10/17/18): NBA DFS Lineups

This feels right. Yesterday was nice, but to be fair, those teams are always nationally televised. This is where we get to the real nitty-gritty DFS nonsense that we all love. A fat 12-game slate to start off the year for everyone and the options for value are endless. The first few games of the... Read More

Danny Green Traded To Raptors

Alongside Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green was sent to the Toronto Raptors in what could be a conference-changing trade. Both are two-way players and add to an already troublesome Raptors defense, without sacrificing any offense. Although the Raptors lost one of their better scorers, they added a major perimeter threat in Danny Green.... Read More

Kawhi Leonard Traded To Toronto

According to multiple sources including Adrian Wojnarowski, a trade between the San Antonio Spurs and the Toronto Raptors sent Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to Toronto, with the Spurs receiving DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl, and protected 2019 first round draft pick. This is a complete shakeup for both teams, but ultimately sets up Kawhi Leonard... Read More

NBA Free Agency: Trevor Ariza to the Suns

Free agency started on Sunday, but now that LeBron James is officially a Laker, let the madhouse OFFICIALLY begin. While there are still MULTIPLE free agents still weighing their offers, trades being tweaked and contracts being restructured, one of the more surprising early acquisitions revolved around Trevor Ariza and the Phoenix Suns. The veteran put... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (5/14/18): NBA DFS Lineups

*pew pew* It's Showdown time. One game slates jam-packed with points and value. You need to hit every pick in order to cash out because there will be so many similar lineups going around. PICK THE SUPERSTARS. You absolutely must pick James Harden, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Steph Curry. Chris Paul might have a... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (5/8/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Tonight really isn't the greatest slate. Realistically, the entire second round of playoffs hasn't been that good in terms of DFS. It's been decent but the blowouts mess with decision making. With only two games that haven't offered up the most competition, choosing whether it will be a close game or a toss-up, now that... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (5/7/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Top of the morning to you all and hopefully you are as excited as I am. We have two games with the stakes about as high as they can get and teams are fighting for reputation. Not going to lie I am absolutely loving all this minor league chaos going on and the narratives being... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (5/5/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Both series tonight have taken a turn for the worst when it comes to DFS. Both teams are head and shoulders ahead of their competition and anything can happen tonight. It is very likely we see narratives tonight that weren't there, and unsung heroes will be the saviors. There isn't but one superstar to really... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (5/3/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Two games tonight and there is value consistently throughout. For the sake of keeping things interesting i'll be sure to keep this list to mostly sleeper picks. Before anything, i'm going to go over a brief rundown of the games so far. In the earlier game, both Toronto and Cleveland are about as dead-set even... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (5/1/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Another two game slate and another chance to cash out big-time. Honestly, I think the NBA needs to give LeBron James another day of rest. They might lose a team when James knocks the Raptors out of the playoffs but tonight, it should be all about DeMar DeRozan, Kyle Lowry and James. I'll say this... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/30/18): NBA DFS Lineups

We are going to do things a bit differently with only one game tonight. DraftKings offers a one game Showdown where you roster six utility players whose total salary you need to keep below $50,000. Although it's only one-game, there is value out there and I am going to offer up the cheapest prices that... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/28/18): NBA DFS Lineups

There are two games tonight. One will be the ending of a great series, the other could be the start of something incredible. Either way, narratives will be set tonight and Anthony Davis is going to have a good game. You might as well start of your lineup creation will a healthy dose of value... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/26/18): NBA DFS Lineups

So, this is different. There's only one game tonight after being spoiled with games last night. Only the Bucks and Celtics will play tonight and luckily FanDuel runs this nifty single-game contest that only allows you to roster five total players. To make it easy, I'll do my best to label each pick that is... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/24/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Three games tonight and plenty of options. Usually this would be good but both the Celtics-Bucks and 76ers-Heat have been somewhat of a crapshoot. The shooters are hitting about every other game, although the superstars have been producing like they should. Game four of Warriors-Spurs shouldn't continue down that same path and expect the Warriors... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/23/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Only two games on the slate which means this article will be on the shorter side. On night's like tonight, there are already plenty of sub-$3,000 options that are actually capable of exceeding their projected. They carry a fair share amount of risk but they also free up enough space to really roster whoever you... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/22/18): NBA DFS Lineups

I almost started this article by talking about how great all today's series have been but that's a lie. The Warriors are going to continue to slap the Spurs around. Nothing against the Spurs; they are just missing their best player and the Warriors are just that good. You shouldn't completely avoid that game but... Read More

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/21/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Four games this Saturday and so far there have only been two series that have really underachieved. The Pelicans-Trail Blazers series could be over today in New Orleans and the Warriors have the chance to close out the Spurs tomorrow afternoon. The Heat are looking to turn momentum in their favor with the early game... Read More

For what it's worth, the wife of San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich passed away after battling an illness for some time. While I didn't know either, take the time to spend time with loved ones and understand what the Popovich family is going through. The game is bigger than basketball and the best thing... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (4/17/18): NBA DFS Lineups

Three games tonight means we can exercise our options, slightly. With playoff basketball, you can always roster starters and especially the ones with lower price tags. The rotations are significantly smaller so look for backups that have been producing all season. Tomas Satoransky, Delon Wright, Malcolm Brogdon, Darius Miller, Semi Ojeleye, and Ian Clark are...
