Michael Thomas Has Tough Week 1 Matchup

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is set to continue his All-Pro performance from last year.

Drew Brees Still A QB1

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has still got it. The 40-year-old is a QB1 and when he plays against the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, expect nothing but greatness. Brees has arguably the best receiver/running back combination in the league with Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara. The Saints are playing at home in... Read More

Saints Defense Potential Sleeper

The Saints have heavily invested in defense over the last few years. From 2016-2018, they picked up Vonn Bell, Sheldon Rankins, Marcus Williams, Marshon Lattimore, and Marcus Davenport all in the first and second rounds. These five young guys were the reason that the defense finished last year ranked 14th in both points per game... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (11/15/16): NBA DFS Advice

The season is still young so there are things that will eventually change. But for right now, it is a completely legitimate question on whether or not you should draft LeBron James or DeMar DeRozan.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks (11/08/16): NBA DFS Advice

There are six games on tonight. Boogie Cousins and Anthony Davis are going head-to-head to put a happy ending to everyone’s Election Day. While both of them are great options to build around, tonight the “cheaper” options of LeBron James and Damian Lillard are both playing at home against lesser teams. Basically one of these...

Rotoballer NBA Roundup for Sunday, October 30th

Saturday saw 18 teams going at it. A full slate of NBA action on the Saturday before Halloween was scary good. (I'm proud of that).

Three Undervalued Guards for Fantasy Basketball Drafts

This league is chock full of guards that are able to contribute.

Rookie Centers to Target in Fantasy Basketball

Last year’s crop of rookie centers were so good they managed to breathe some new life into a "dying" position. Karl-Anthony Towns, Nikola Jokic, Myles Turner, and Jahlil Okafor all paid immediate dividends to not only the teams that drafted them but also any fantasy owners smart enough to snatch the young big men up....

Domantas Sabonis (C, OKC) - 2016 Fantasy Basketball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Monitor as a late season waiver wire add CURRENT ADP: NA ANALYSIS: Domantas Sabonis was considered one of the most skilled big men in this draft class and managed to land in a great spot in Oklahoma City. So far this preseason he seems to be starting alongside Steven Adams with Enes Kanter coming off the bench... Read More

Jakob Poeltl (C, TOR) - 2016 Fantasy Basketball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Monitor as a late season waiver wire add CURRENT ADP: NA ANALYSIS: Jakob Poeltl was the only true center to go in the top ten of this year’s draft. He’s playing on a Toronto team that has a pretty set starting rotation, including a potential All-Star center in Jonas Valanciunas. However, the role of backup to Valanciunas... Read More

Willy Hernangomez (C, NYK) - 2016 Fantasy Basketball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Monitor as a possible late season waiver wire add CURRENT ADP: NA ANALYSIS: The Knicks have an aging Joakim Noah and a not so talented Marshall Plumlee as their two center prospects. As long as those two are healthy, it will more than likely be a red-shirt year for Willy Hernangomez. If either Noah or Plumlee goes... Read More

Joel Embiid (C, PHI) - 2016 Fantasy Basketball Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Draft in 9-13 CURRENT ADP: 117.4 ANALYSIS: Everyone in the world will be watching to see how well Joel Embiid starts the season. There are so many reasons to not consider Embiid for a roster spot; logjam at center, two straight years with no NBA minutes, only one good year at Kansas (it was sooooo good... Read More

D'Angelo Russell (PG, LAL) - 2016 Fantasy Basketball Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft in rounds 5-8 CURRENT ADP: 66.8 ANALYSIS: D'Angelo “Ice in my veins” Russell is going to go off this year. I don’t know if people are punishing their fantasy teams because of the whole Nick Young fiasco or if they just don’t get how good this young guard is. He is now the dominant player on... Read More

Goran Dragic (PG/SG, MIA) - 2016 Fantasy Basketball Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft in rounds 4-6 CURRENT ADP: 52.3 ANALYSIS: Goran Dragic had his worst statistical season in five years last season while still playing around the same amount of minutes (32 MPG). The immediate reaction is to assume that he’s aging and the decline has to do with that. As a result, he is being taken behind the... Read More

Dennis Schroder (PG, ATL) - 2016 Fantasy Basketball Sleepers

BALLER MOVE: Draft in rounds 4-8 CURRENT ADP: 62.8 ANALYSIS: The Hawks have finally decided to let Dennis Schroder loose. Remember Reggie Jackson while he was on the Thunder and people weren’t sure if he was ready to take over as “the main guy”? Basically the same situation is playing out right now in Atlanta. Just like Jackson, Schroder... Read More
