About Scott Z - RotoBaller (NBA)

Did the whole quit my job in the corporate world to work in basketball thing. NBA Junkie.

Scott Z - RotoBaller (NBA) has written 100 articles so far, you can find them below.


Marcin Gortat (C, WAS) - Strong FanDuel Play on 2/11/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at MIL, $6,900 ANALYSIS: Had to end with the Polish Hammer. Although I think he's a great play tonight, I expect Marcin Gortat's ownership level to be through the roof. Although I'm sure there will be a chunk of DFS'ers risking it with Enes Kanter or Steven Adams tonight, I just don't see the upside, and... Read More

Jared Dudley (PF, WAS) - FanDuel Matchup Play on 2/11/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at MIL, $4,600 ANALYSIS: Ok so hear me out. I know his DFS numbers are generally underwhelming, but Jared Dudley has been pretty consistently hitting 4x value, and has the revenge game factor tonight. What's the revenge game factor you ask? Players always play better against their former teams. Now I don't have any numbers to... Read More

Ryan Anderson (SF, NO) - Cheap FanDuel Play on 2/11/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at OKC, $5,900 ANALYSIS: With Tyreke Evans out, someone has to score for New Orleans other than Anthony Davis, and that man is Ryan Anderson. I'm a little worried about Durant guarding him for stretches of games where OKC goes small, but hopefully they won't need too, as this should be an absolute blow out. And... Read More

Khris Middleton (SG, MIL) - FanDuel Matchup Play on 2/11/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs WAS, $7,300 ANALYSIS: So normally I would do just about everything possible to avoid rostering players from this game tonight, but on a two game slate that's impossible. Although the spread looks to be around 210 points, both of these teams are really hard to predict on a night to night basis with the...

Norris Cole (PG, NO) - Undervalued FanDuel Play on 2/11/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs NOP, $5,100 ANALYSIS: With Tyreke Evens out until the all star break, and Jrue Holiday on a 25ish minutes restriction, Norris Cole will be the biggest DFS beneficiary of the next few games.  Cole has shown that he can produce serious fantasy numbers when given starters minutes. He has scored over 30 FD points in... Read More

NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel DFS Basketball Advice for 2/11/16

With only two games tonight we'll keep it short and simple. Two Guards, two forwards,and one center. I'll throw out a couple other names in the write ups, but if I recommended an entire roster I'd pretty much be writing up every serviceable player tonight. In this article, I will be providing you with daily... Read More

Dwight Howard (C, HOU) - Risk/Reward FanDuel Play on 2/4/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at PHO, $7,800 ANALYSIS: Last but certainly not least, we get to Dwight Howard. After missing the last game due to a suspension, Dwight will be fully rested and ready to help the Rockets take on the decimated Phoenix Suns. I've already discussed how much I like the pace of this game, which will surely benefit... Read More

Anthony Davis (PF, NO) - Elite FanDuel Play on 2/4/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs LAL, $10,100 ANALYSIS: I'm gonna keep this short and simple. Anthony Davis is playing the Lakers tonight. Roster him. Even though his ownership will likely be through the roof, AD has the chance for one of his historic fantasy performances tonight. With Evans likely out tonight (keep an eye on that), AD's usage will... Read More

Markieff Morris (PF, PHO) - FanDuel Matchup Play on 2/4/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs HOU, $5,200 ANALYSIS: I just had to write about the second Morri(s). He has an excellent match up tonight against the very fast paced Rockets and is coming off his best game of the season two nights ago in Toronto. In that game, he dropped 30 real points, 11 rebounds, six assists, two blocks,... Read More

Carmelo Anthony (SF, NY) - Safe FanDuel Play on 2/4/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at DET, $8,900 ANALYSIS: Ummmm Carmelo under $9,000. Yes please, sign me up. Since returning from his minor knee injury, Melo has put up totals of 35, 40, and 49 FD points. Although one or two of those were not so efficient performances, that doesn't hurt you in DFS, so don't even look at... Read More

4 years ago


Marcus Morris (SF, DET) - FanDuel Value Play on 2/4/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs NY, $5,100 ANALYSIS: As I mentioned earlier, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope out, there are going to be a few fantasy beneficiaries on the Pistons. But who gains the biggest boost in value? Marcus Morris. With a lot less competition on the wing for minutes and shot attempts, Morris's usage should get a significant uptick. I... Read More

DeMar DeRozan (SG, TOR) - Strong FanDuel Play on 2/4/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at POR, $8,100 ANALYSIS: I'm sure you noticed my other guard selections were pretty cheap. Here's one of the first under-priced stars I think are in for a great night. Portland doesn't have much size on the perimeter, and doesn't play much defense overall out there. DeMar should have his way getting to the rim as... Read More

Devin Booker (SG, PHO) - FanDuel Matchup Play on 2/4/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs HOU, $5,400 ANALYSIS: If Tyreke Evans does sit, SG is going to look a little thin on FanDuel tonight. If you don't want to pony up for Harden (you'll see I'm not buying) then its gonna look even more thin. DeRozan, McCollum, and Louis Williams become your most expensive options. Right below that... Read More

Norris Cole (PG, NO) - Safe FanDuel Play on 2/4/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at LAL, $5,000 ANALYSIS: This pick is hinged on the status of Tyreke Evans heading into tonights game against the Lakers. If he sits, Cole will surely be one of the most popular plays of the night. Cole has scored over 30 FD points in three out of the last four games with Evans... Read More

4 years ago

Brandon Jennings (PG, DET) - Risk/Reward FanDuel Play on 2/4/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs NY, $3,700 ANALYSIS: I guess we'll start with the riskiest play of the night. In DFS you always have to try to stay one step ahead, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's injury might provide an under the radar opportunity for Brandon Jennings. Detroit has experimented with playing Jennings and starter Reggie Jackson at the same time,...

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for FanDuel for 2/4/16. The picks will range... Read More

NBA Trade Deadline: Players to Sell High, Part 1

It’s now less than three weeks from the NBA trade deadline (Feb. 18th, 3pm). A lot can change both in the NBA and on your fantasy team overnight, and even relatively small moves in the NBA can launch guys into fantasy relevance (for example, Isaiah Thomas and Reggie Jackson last season). However, a trade can... Read More

NBA Trade Deadline: Players to Buy Low, Part 2

It’s now less than 30 days from the NBA trade deadline (Feb. 18th, 3pm) and likely even closer to your fantasy trade deadline. A lot can change both in the NBA and on your fantasy team overnight, and even relatively small moves in the NBA can launch guys into fantasy relevance (for example, Isaiah Thomas... Read More

DeMarcus Cousins (C, SAC) - Elite FanDuel Play on 1/21/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs ATL, $10,700 ANALYSIS: I really like the Hawks vs. Kings matchup tonight, and Cousins is reason number one. Last night he totaled a ridiculous 61.7 FanDuel points, and although it was against the Lakers, I'm rollin with Boogie when he's hot. He's reached 60 FanDuel points three times over his last ten games, and in that same... Read More

Ersan Ilyasova (PF, DET) - Cheap FanDuel Play on 1/21/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at NOP, $5,800 ANALYSIS: Ilyasova is certainly not a sexy name to roster in DFS, but tonight he has a great matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans. He's also been producing 5x value almost every night for the past week. In four out of his last six games, Ersan has totaled over 30 FanDuel points -... Read More

4 years ago

Paul Millsap (PF, ATL) - FanDuel Matchup Play on 1/21/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at SAC, $8,700 ANALYSIS: Millsap is one of my favorite DFS picks of the night. His Hawks will be playing a Kings team that plays even faster than they do, and plays little-to-no defense. Vegas thinks this game is going to be very close with a spread of only a point, which is even better... Read More

4 years ago

Danilo Gallinari (SF, DEN) - Safe FanDuel Play on 1/21/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs MEM, $7,100 ANALYSIS: Gallo has been playing pretty well of late, and has a juicy matchup against Memphis tonight. Never did I think that I would look forward to rostering guys against Memphis, but here we are. Last time Danilo faced off against Memphis this season he dropped 41.1 FanDuel points, tallying 29 real... Read More

4 years ago

Kawhi Leonard (SF, SA) - Great FanDuel Play on 1/21/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at PHO, $7,600 ANALYSIS: Another big name that's just priced too low. Kawhi is going against one of the worst defenses in the NBA, and I can roster him for under $8,000?! Sign me up. Even though this game will likely not be close, Kawhi will be a big reason why. He should be... Read More

J.J. Redick (SG, LAC) - FanDuel Upside Play on 1/21/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at CLE, $5,600 ANALYSIS: J.J. Redick is straight up on fire. Against Houston two nights ago, he went 9-of-12 from three point range on his way to a career high 40 points. I'm going with the hot hand in another big game against Cleveland tonight. This game is going to be close and high... Read More

4 years ago


Devin Booker (SG, PHO) - FanDuel Upside Play on 1/21/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs SAS, $4,300 ANALYSIS: Yes, I may have a fantasy crush on Devin Booker. He's on a bad team and has been given the green light to fire away on offense. Unfortunately, the Spurs have one of the best defenses in the NBA by any measure, but just based on pure volume Booker should easily... Read More

4 years ago

Kyrie Irving (PG, CLE) - FanDuel Value Play on 1/21/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: vs LAC, $7,200 ANALYSIS: His price is still just too low. With the potential to score 50 or more FanDuel points on any given night, I'll roll the dice on Kyrie getting his groove back tonight. This game should stay relatively close all night, and they'll need Kyrie's scoring if they want to keep up... Read More

4 years ago

Patrick Mills (PG, SA) - Cheap FanDuel Play on 1/21/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at PHX, $3,500 ANALYSIS: With Tony Parker already ruled out, Patty Mills will wind up being a very popular choice tonight. Priced at the FanDuel minimum, Mills should be able to fall into 5x value with all the minutes he'll get against the Phoenix Suns tonight. Although this game has the largest potential for a...

NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel DFS Basketball Advice for 1/21/16

Absolutely stellar slate of NBA games tonight. Only one game (SAS/PHX) has a spread of over two points. Don't worry about blowouts, starters should be playing all night! In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for FanDuel for 1/21/16. The DFS lineup picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced... Read More

Andre Drummond (C, DET) - Strong FanDuel Play on 1/14/16

MATCHUP/VALUE: at MEM, $8,900 ANALYSIS: I think Andre Drummond is the Dark Horse high scorer of the night. Now I know it's a long shot with guys like Curry, Lebron, and Cousins available to roster, but just hear me out. The Memphis Grizzlies are a sneaky bad rebounding team. 8th worst in the NBA to...
