John Collins made sure I keep my streak of consecutive flame-outs in the studs department, after totaling only 12 points, three rebounds, an assists, a steal, a block, and five turnovers in the huge defeat at the hands of the Grizzlies. Domantas Sabonis almost made it two horrible stud selections on the same day. Fortunately, the first-time All-Star recovered just in time, scoring eight consecutive points at one point in the fourth, to finish with 14-11-5 plus a steal and a block. Not to mention Read More
Saturday's picks were kind of on point except for the horrible Ricky Rubio suggestion. I mean who would have thought he can only muster 6-3-8 with 5 TOs against a Golden State team with no point guard. Rubio came in with 45 assists and 16 steals in the last four games so who can blame me for giving him a vote of confidence? That said, Jayson Tatum (32-13-5 plus two steals and two blocks), Robert Covington (16 rebounds and 3 blocks) , and Jaylen Brown (22-5-3 plus a steal and a block) were phenomenal, Read More
There were some big hits and big misses in my yesterday's picks and let me begin by saying Buddy Hield, Nemanja Bjelica, and Kris Dunn were horrible. The Kings were blown out of the water so understandably, their main guns sat out with the game already decided. I haven't watch the Bulls-Pacers game but the overtime should have helped Dunn's cause. Instead, he was down to 16 minutes of playing time. The strong play of several Bulls including Chandler Hutchison (21 points) and Cristiano Felicio (11 Read More

Sunday Recap Nikola Jokic 37 FPTs 18P/5A/6R/1B/1S Malcolm Brogdon 29.75 FPTs 10P/10A/3R/1S Brook Lopez 35 FPTs 17P/2A/8R/2B CBS Sports Nikola Jokic had a huge first half against the Lakers. I thought he was on his way to a potential triple double, he had 11 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists for 27 fantasy points at halftime. Unfortunately he cooled off in the 2nd half and he only played 27 minutes in a Nuggets blowout win. He ended up with 18 points Read More
Friday Recap Trae Young 46.25 FPTs 23P/8A/7R/1B Clint Capela 29.25 FPTs 10P/11R/2B Richaun Holmes 9.75 FPTs 4P/5R Sports Illustrated Young didn’t go off for 49 points like the last time the Hawks played the Pacers but he put up some pretty good numbers in an Atlanta loss. Trae finished with 23 points, 8 rebounds and 7 rebounds, with the way my picks have been going I’m chalking this up as a win. Capela had a terrible night and he still finished with a double Read More
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards
Back-to-back games with at least 60 fantasy points say it all. Beal is carrying this Wizards team and doing it all, averaging 31.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 9 assists, and 2.5 steals over the past two. He already had a couple of pretty nice games against the Magic this season so I expect him to top his averages.
Steph Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors
Curry is having mediocre games by his standards lately but facing a rival without Kevin Durant, Read More
Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards
Beal is averaging 25.8 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, and 2.3 steals in the past four, the All-Star guard will look to squeeze the Wizards into the playoff picture. They will be up against Sacramento, who has playoff aspirations themselves, so expect to see an A-game from Double B tomorrow night.
Kyrie Irving, PG, Boston Celtics
Irving is good for 24.3 points, seven rebounds, 7.3 assists, and 1.3 steals over the past three, culminating Read More
If you could redo the draft all over again, would you have picked the same players or are you ready to move on? Well, just to put it out there, there is no such thing as a perfect draft but I am still doing well in my leagues so the answer would be kind of in the middle. That said, there are certain players who are can't miss, which means if they somehow fall in your lap, you better not take five seconds before you pull the damn trigger. What we are going to do is go through six rounds of drafting Read More
Traditionally speaking, shooting guard is the shallowest position in fantasy basketball. Since point guards like Steph Curry, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving do have SG eligibility in fantasy, it makes the position pool look deeper than it actually is. In this list - 5 Best Shooting Guards For Fantasy Basketball - however, I won't include the aforementioned names (because they really are point guards who can simply score) and concentrate on players who played the SG position for the majority of their Read More
