1.) Nicholas Claxton, C, Brooklyn Nets DeAndre Jordan may be the starter and plays slightly more minutes, but Claxton is not a bad choice at a lesser price. He is averaging over 8 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks over the past three with a bonus dime and steal here and there. 2.) Tomas Satoransky, PG, Chicago Bulls Sato has been playing a lot of minutes for the Bulls lately averaging 10 points and 7 dimes over the past three games. He claimed the starting job over Coby White and has been playing Read More
It was a night of hits and misses, but at least you and me, I should say, could see the misses coming from a mile away. What I'm talking about was the dismal performances of top rookies Isaac Okoro and Patrick Williams. Okoro did not score in the OT game vs Detroit and only came up with three rebounds and a steal. Even so, the fifth overall pick played 41 minutes in a close game! Talking about trust. On the other hand, Williams finished with nine points, two rebounds, an assist, and a block in 22 Read More

Trying to get value from bargains is tricky business and it can obviously get you mixed results. So what happened with our previous bargain options list? Here's a short recap: PJ Washington- Played almost 40 minutes and got the win but did not do much. 15-4-3 plus 1 block but at his price, that line is still solid. Moritz Wagner- 9-6-3 which is not but at his price range at DK, you can do better. Matisse Thybulle- Richardson played but Thybulle still got the better portion of the playing time pie, Read More
1.) Tomas Satoransky, PG, Chicago Bulls Yahoo: $13; DraftKings: $5,200 Satoransky has not stopped producing since I made the latest Bargain Options article. He has scored in double digits six of the last seven and handed out at least five assists during that span. For a change, the Bulls will be playing at home after three straight road games and let's just hope it'll provide Sato a nice boost. amzn_assoc_tracking_id = "fantasybask01-20"; amzn_assoc_ad_mode = "manual"; amzn_assoc_ad_type = Read More
Finding bargain options can be hard but not impossible. In a 14-game day, however, there will definitely be no shortage of bargain options to round out your roster.
1.) Cheick Diallo, PF/C, Phoenix Suns
Yahoo: $10; DraftKings: $4,900
The Suns frontcourt is razor thin right now with DeAndre Ayton and Aron Baynes out, leaving room for Frank Kaminsky and Diallo to step up. Over the last two games, however, Diallo is outplaying Frank the Tank by a mile, getting 17 points and 10 rebounds vs Washington Read More
1.) D'Angelo Russell Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports Russell just became the first option of a young Nets team to probably an off-the-ball scorer in Golden State with Steph Curry the focal point of the offense. The first-time All-Star excels when he has the ball making decisions on pick-and-rolls, something he may not be able to do with Curry around. (According to NBA.com/stats, the percentage of unassisted field goals by Russell last season is at 71.2%, which means he is more of a shot-creator Read More
Everything in the NBA preseason should be taken with a grain of salt for a lot of reasons. Coaches sit starters half the time, training camp invitees play a lot, and there just wasn't enough to go around.
On the other hand, however, coaches use this time to see what they can get out of their new recruits or second-year players. That said, not everyone disappoints, as these 5 players below have shown. They may need to prove themselves more to earn playing time in the regular season but we sure Read More
