NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel Basketball Advice for 4/20/16

With only three games on the docket tonight, your margin for error in roster building will be quite slim.

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/19/16): NBA DFS Advice

Just two games on tap for the NBA Playoff schedule, but that doesn't mean there aren't many possibilities for various lineups. There is definitely a way to create a nice stars and “scrubs” lineup, soldiering the best matchups at each position. But how often do those lineups hit. I intend to have at least some... Read More

Playoffs have begun. NBA Daily Fantasy has continued. This is where things get tricky considering every team is playing extra basketball for a reason.

My favorite stacks of the night are the Houston Rockets against the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Sacramento Kings against the Phoenix Suns.

2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers – Jo Adell

The most coveted type of player in fantasy baseball is the batter who can hit home runs, steal bases and hit for contact.
