Leonard Francis II - RotoBaller has written 56 articles so far, you can find them below.


What is this?! A five-game slate on a Thursday? Technically six, but the Knicks and Wizards are in London for a game which tips off at 3:00 PM EST and isn't on the slate. But, still... Five games?! My excitement over finally having options is likely to result in failure, but do pardon me for... Read More

Heading into Tuesday night's NBA action, the league average was 110.3 points per game... The Thunder put up 126 against the Hawks Tuesday night, and lost. The 76ers produced the most points they've scored in nearly 30 years. The Warriors set a new NBA record with 51 first quarter points. Seven Pacers scored in double... Read More

Matchups matter, and the Celtics are one of the best defensive teams in the league. Boston is also playing their third game in four nights which comes on the second-half of a back-to-back. They're 2-4 this season with no rest. (Although, they did wax the Pacers last night enabling them to rest their starters for... Read More

Flip Saunders is the greatest coach in Timberwolves history. He led the franchise to their first playoff berth in his first full season as head coach -- Kevin Garnett, Tom Gugliotta, and Stephon Marbury also helped -- brought them their first winning season, has the highest winning percentage among any Wolves head coach during their...

Another three-game slate on tap in the NBA tonight which means finding value on DraftKings is a bit like Sandra Bullock blindfoldedly navigating the rapids in Bird Box. She made it, though. Hopefully, we do too. Kings/Nuggets has the highest implied point total of the night at 227 with the Rockets/Warriors coming in second at... Read More

When the Blazers and Kings took the floor Tuesday night, no player in the history of the NBA had ever recorded a 2o-plus point, 20-plus rebound, five-assist, five-steal, five-block game. 24 points, 23 rebounds, seven assists, five steals, and five blocks later, one of the most unlikely of candidates to accomplish this mystifying feat had... Read More

Happy Holidays! Nine of the league's top teams -- and the Knicks -- are in action tonight in what makes for an intriguing five-game slate. If you haven't heard, LeBron James (groin) is set to miss his first game as a Laker meaning Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram should see a boost in production. Thing is,... Read More

The (6-8) Denver Broncos and (3-11) Oakland Raiders have combined for fewer wins this season than 20-percent of the remaining teams in the NFL; individually. If we were somehow able to fuse quarterbacks Case Keenum and Derek Carr, the resulting Casrek Kerrum would have the same amount of touchdown passes as Andrew Luck and 11... Read More

Vince Carter knocked down two three-pointers in the Hawks 118-110 victory over the Wizards Tuesday night, and in doing so passed Paul Pierce to become No. 7 on the NBA's all-time three-pointers made list. Currently in his 21st season, the timeless Carter has one obvious advantage over many NBA players - longevity. In fact, when... Read More

Clippers, Heat, Mavericks, Rockets. That's all we get tonight in the NBA. And with no NFL action on tap, most sports fans' eyes will be glued to TNT for this sneakily intriguing doubleheader. Unfortunately, the two-game slate means less sources of value for us DFS fans, but with James Harden being the only player priced... Read More

Denver Broncos tight end Matt LaCosse saw just two targets over the last two weeks combined - bringing in one pass for three yards. LaCosse bounced back Saturday night against the Browns with five receptions for 43 yards, and looks to have regained his streaming intrigue heading into Week 16 as the Broncos draw a... Read More

The hype surrounding Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton continues to dissipate following his five-catch, 42-yard performance Saturday night. Sutton has somehow managed to remain the team's third receiving option despite the losses of Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas and should be considered nothing more than a flex option heading into Denver's Week 16 matchup... Read More

Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton saw 12 targets head his way Saturday night as the Broncos fell to the Browns - bringing his target total to 21 over the team's last two games. Hamilton brought in seven of these 12 targets for 46 yards, and looks to be a viable PPR option for fantasy... Read More

Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick caught five of eight targets for 65 yards in the Broncos 17-16 loss to the Browns Saturday. Patrick has led the team in receiving yards in consecutive weeks while seeing 18 targets head his way over this two-game stretch. Given the lackluster play of quarterback Case Keenum, this passing... Read More

Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman picked up eight yards on five touches -- four carries for seven yards and one reception for one yard -- in the Broncos 17-16 loss to the Browns Saturday night. Freeman has now received single-digit touches in four of five games since returning from his ankle injury and should... Read More

The Carolina Panthers (6-7) looked like a lock to make their second-straight postseason appearance a little over a month ago, but have since lost five-straight games and now find themselves outside of the club arguing with the bouncer over how they belong on the guest list. But, aren't. Conversely, the New Orleans Saints (11-2) have... Read More

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay turned 14 carries into 24 yards while picking up an additional 20 yards through the air on four receptions in the Broncos 17-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns Saturday night. Lindsay was bottled up all evening with his 44 scrimmage yards marking his lowest total in a game this... Read More

Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum completed 31 of 48 passes for 257 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions Saturday night in the Broncos 17-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Keenum ended his three-game, sub-200 passing yard streak, but once again his Broncos offense struggled to get going as his underwhelming play continues to be a... Read More

Finding value among tonight's four-game DraftKings slate is about as difficult as going an entire week without a phone or WiFi. Why you would want to do any of these things is the real question. It takes a strong 275 DraftKings fantasy points to even think about getting a foot in the door on an... Read More

Imagine being so great at doing something that you could take away the main element which has led to your greatness and still be better than almost everyone else at doing whatever your great thing is. Example: Back in 1986, the Boston Celtics played a game against the Portland Trailblazers. In Portland. Larry Bird --... Read More

Denver Broncos tight end Matt LaCosse caught his one target for three yards in the Broncos 20-14 loss to the 49ers Sunday. LaCosse has now received just one target in back-to-back games following an impressive three-catch, 34-yard, one-touchdown performance in spell of the injured Jeff Heuerman in Week 12, and does not appear to have... Read More

Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick led the team in targets (10), receptions (seven) and yards (85) in the Broncos 20-14 loss to the 49ers on Sunday. Patrick came into this game with just four receptions on the season -- and had not recorded a catch since Week 9 -- so I wouldn't overreact just... Read More

Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton caught seven of nine targets for 47 yards in the Broncos 20-14 loss to the 49ers Sunday. Hamilton caught a one-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter providing not only his first-career TD reception, but a bow for the day which saw him set new career-highs in both... Read More

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton saw six targets in the Broncos first game without Emmanuel Sanders, turning in two catches for 14 yards and proving that it's still too early to trust the young, promising wideout. Broncos quarterback Case Keenum has put a hard cap on the appeal of this passing game, and Sutton... Read More

Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman picked up six yards per carry in the Broncos 20-14 loss to the 49ers Sunday. Only one problem, he received just six carries. With Phillip Lindsay taking over the No. 1 spot in this backfield, Freeman's fantasy value is all but vanquished as he receives minimal work in the... Read More

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay picked up 30 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries while adding another 21 yards on four receptions in the Broncos 20-14 loss to the 49ers. The Broncos offensive unit continues to underperform as a whole, but Lindsay came into this game as one of the hottest RBs in... Read More

Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum completed 24 of 42 pass attempts for 186 yards with one touchdown in the Broncos 20-14 loss to the 49ers. Keenum added a season-high 24 yards on the ground -- providing a slight boost to his fantasy numbers -- but he's now thrown for less than 200 yards in three-straight... Read More

The Minnesota Vikings (6-5-1) head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks Monday night while still possessing a very legitimate shot at their second-straight NFC North championship. It would take time travel, combined with several injuries or random kidnappings, for the Seattle Seahawks (7-5) to prevent the Los Angeles Rams from claiming the second-straight NFC... Read More

The Denver Broncos defense/special teams unit has held their last four opponents to an average of 17 points while compiling 13 sacks, five interceptions and three fumble recoveries. Considering three of those four games came against some of the league's top offenses -- Texans, Chargers, and Steelers -- a matchup with a 49ers team which... Read More

We haven't seen much of Denver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton this season, but with Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) done for the year, that's likely to change. Beginning this week. Hamilton is set to take over the primary slot duties in this offense, and after seeing just seven targets in three appearances this season -- catching... Read More
