Suggested Plays for NBA 2/27/15:


PG:

Damian Lillard- I love Lillard tonight against the Thunder. He’s averaging 35.7 minutes per game to go along with 36.9 FPPG. The Thunder have really given up a ton of points to Point Guards over the course of the season by allowing 46.7 FP. I could see Lillard go for 35+ minutes and well over 40 FP tonight.

Isaiah Canaan- He has taken over the starting PG duties and his usage has gone way up since MCW was shipped out. He makes a great value play tonight if that’s what you’re looking for. With so many games on tap, you might be able to find better options, but if you MUST play a 76er tonight, he helps afford big names tonight.

Other PG Plays: RUSSELL “MVP” WESTBROOK, Tony Parker, Chris Paul, Dante Exum, Kyrie Irving, Michael Carter-Williams


Teams To Target PGs Against:

Lakers allow 46.43 FP
Thunder allow 43.57 FP
Kings allow 43.30 FP
Timberwolves allow 43.28 FP
Knicks allow 42.72 FP


SG:

Danny Green- He makes a terrific GPP play but you always have to be cautious of getting POPped and him not playing much at all. Green is averaging 29.4 minutes per game and 23.7 FPPG but he has a great matchup tonight against Sacramento. The Kings give up 46.2 FP to Shooting Guards and his price is below mid-range on all sites tonight.

Jimmy Butler- He is the GOAT when D-Rose is out. He has a tremendous matchup against the Timberwolves who are just awful. He’s averaging 38.7 minutes a game and 35.4 FPPG. His price has come down and hasn’t been adjusted to reflect the absence of Rose yet so we need to take advantage of this ASAP. The Timberwolves are giving up an average of 42.4 FP to Shooting Guards and I wouldn’t be surprised if Butler goes for 50+ FP tonight.

Other SG Plays: Victor Oladipo, DeMar DeRozan, D-Wade, Klay Thompson


Teams To Target SGs Against:

Kings allow 40.52 FP
76ers allow 39.77 FP
Nuggets allow 38.72 FP
Pacers allow 38.36 FP
Nets allow 38.31 FP


SF:

Jeff Green- He’s a very intriguing play tonight at a heck of a low salary. He’s playing the Clippers and is averaging 31.3 minutes a game and 23.9 FPPG. He makes a great GPP play as the Clippers are giving up an average of 43.4 FP to Small Forwards. Make sure to check the lineups before tip-off but expect Green to make a GPP impact tonight.

Giannis Antetokounmpo- I’m at the point in the NBA season that I can spell this guys name without even looking it up. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad depending on which nights you have used him and his outcome. Well tonight he has a GREAT matchup against the lowly Lakers and the Greek Freak is averaging 29.3 minutes per game and 25.5 FPPG. The Lakers are giving up an average of 42 FP to Small Forwards and I wouldn’t be surprised if Antetokounmpo goes for 40+ FP tonight.

Other SF Plays: Harrison Barnes, Trevor Ariza, DeMarre Carroll, Andrew Wiggins, Gordon Hayward


Teams To Target SFs Against:

Magic allow 37.14 FP
Timberwolves allow 37.14 FP
Clippers allow 37.14 FP
Cavaliers allow 36.82 FP
Nuggets allow 36.72 FP


PF:

Derrick Favors- He gets a great matchup against the Nuggets who have given up on the season and also give up the most FP to Power Forwards. He’s averaging 30.6 FP and 31.3 FP to match up against the Nuggets who really have struggled against big Power Forwards. I look for him to absolutely dominate in the Mile High City and score a ton of FP tonight.

Brandon Bass- Bass seems to be either hit or miss since the trade deadline but I think he is a HIT tonight against Charlotte. The Hornets are giving up an average of 50.7 FP to PFs this season and could be in for a long night against Bass and Jae Crowder.

Other PF Plays: Pau Gasol, Kevin Love, NeNe Hilario, Terrance Jones, Greg Monroe


Teams To Target PFs Against:

Nuggets allow 45.33 FP
76ers allow 45.20 FP
Timberwolves allow 44.36 FP
Celtics allow 43.91 FP
Pistons allow 43.27 FP


C:

Marcin Gortat- He’s facing the 76ers who have a hard time stopping people since the trade deadline. At least before when they had MCW they were keeping games close (losing) but keeping them close. This could turn ugly fast but Gortat has a tremendous matchup against the 76ers who are giving up 49.95 FP to bigs. He also won’t break the bank coming in at near $5,500 on most sites.

Marc Gasol- Some might look at this matchup and shy away because Gasol is matched up against DeAndre Jordan who is a monster. Truth is, Gasol has faired well against Jordan and the Clippers in his past and he is getting 33.4 minutes a game and 36.4 FPPG. I could see him getting 40+ FP tonight as the Clippers have given up 48.1 FP to Centers this season.

Other C Plays:  Al Horford, Al Jefferson, Hassan Whiteside, Nikola Pekovic, Rudy Gobert


Teams To Target Cs Against:

76ers allow 49.95 FP
Kings allow 48.17 FP
Pistons allow 48.14 FP
Timberwolves allow 48.07 FP
Magic allow 47.70 FP

NBA Daily Fantasy Advice Feb 25th

Derrick Rose is out yet again with another injury that require knee surgery, maybe it’s time to hang them up and just be a coach.

Suggested Plays for NBA 2/25/15:


PG:


Brandon Knight- There’s a ton of options on the night and I really like BK to light up the stat sheet tonight. He’s averaging 31.8 minutes a game and 30.9 FPPG. He gets a terrific matchup against Denver who seemingly have given up on the season and you couple that with giving up an average of 48.0 FP to Point Guards, BK could be in store for a great night.


Mike Conley- He has himself a great matchup against the Kings tonight. He’s averaging right at 31 minutes per game and nearly 30 FPPG. Sacramento is giving up 47.6 FP to Point Guards on the season and over their last 7 games they have given up 50.6 FP. Conley could cash in for us tonight.


Other PG Plays: Langston Galloway, Damian Lillard, Jeff Teague, Mo Williams, Ricky Rubio



Teams To Target PGs Against:


Lakers allow 46.83 FP

Timberwolves allow 43.63 FP

Kings allow 43.44 FP

Magic allow 43.33 FP

Knicks allow 42.70 FP



SG:


James Harden- This might be an obvious choice but like I said last time, I had a feeling he would dominate the Timberwolves and he did just that by getting a triple-double. I have a really good feeling again tonight as the Clippers have a hard time stopping aggressive-offensive players and Harden could go off for a double-double tonight.


Khris Middleton- He draws a great matchup tonight against the 76ers. He’s averaging 27 minutes a game and has either hit that mark or gone above that in his last 16 straight games. The 76ers struggle against SGs by allowing a season average of 41.8 FP to the position.


Other SG Plays: Courtney Lee, Victor Oladipo, Monta Ellis, Kevin Martin, Eric Bledsoe



Teams To Target SGs Against:

Kings allow 40.54 FP

76ers allow 39.85 FP

Nuggets allow 38.58 FP

Nets allow 38.45 FP

Timberwolves allow 38.32 FP



SF:


Gordon Hayward- He faces the horrible Lakers tonight at home and has the best matchup of all Small Forwards. He is facing a Lakers team that is one of the worst all-time and they are giving up 43.2 FP to Small Forwards. He’s coming off one of his least-productive games in recent history so he’s primed for a bounce-back game.


Rudy Gay- I like him tonight against the Grizz. He’s averaging 34.8 minutes per game to go along with 33.4 FPPG while the Grizzlies are giving up an average of 39.8 FP to SF. This could be a spot we see him reach 40 FP tonight.


Other SF Plays: Andrew Wiggins, Luol Deng, Trevor Ariza, Tim Hardaway Jr.



Teams To Target SFs Against:


Timberwolves allow 37.36 FP

Magic allow 37.10 FP

Suns allow 37.02 FP

Clippers allow 36.87 FP

Nuggets allow 36.46 FP



PF:


Pau Gasol- He’s my favorite play of the night since D-Rose is out for the season yet again. Gasol beasts it up when Rose is out and now he has a premiere matchup against an awful Charlotte team. They are giving up an average of 51.7 PF to Power Forwards and Pau should dominate tonight.


Markieff Morris- He also has a premiere matchup against a team (Denver) who just gave up and are pathetic against PFs by allowing 50.7 FP average to the position.


Other PF Plays: Zach Randolph, John Henson, Nene Hilario, Brandon Bass


Teams To Target PF Against:


76ers allow 45.31 FP

Nuggets allow 45.26 FP

Timberwolves allow 44.38 FP

Celtics allow 43.79 FP

Nets allow 43.53 FP



C:


Rudy Gobert- I will have Gobert in a ton of lineups tonight as he’s my favorite play at Center. He is facing the Lakers who have nobody that can stop him and he doesn’t just rely solely on scoring for his FP. He could be in store for a tremendous game tonight.


Marc Gasol- He has a great matchup against Sacramento who gives up an average of 54.8 FP to Centers. He could get Cousins in foul trouble early which could pave the way to a FP outburst out of Gasol.


Other C Plays: Omer Asik, Marcin Gortat, Zaza Pachulia, Alex Len


Teams To Target Cs Against:


76ers allow 49.63 FP

Timberwolves allow 48.42 FP

Kings allow 48.16 FP

Magic allow 47.69 FP

Nuggets allow 47.10 FP

NBA Daily Fantasy Advice Feb 24th

Last night was a great night in the NBA as we cashed in all 3 major sites (Fanduel/DraftKings/Victiv). We look to continue our winning ways tonight in what is sure to be an exciting 4 game slate. Let’s continue to dominate the competition and bringing home that bacon!

Victiv Referral Link: https://www.victiv.com/r/h2beptnrqk

Suggested Plays for NBA 2/24/15:


PG:


George Hill- I like Hill’s matchup tonight against a Thunder team that gives up an average of 46 FPPG to Point Guards this season. he’s averaging right around 1 FP per minute of play and is a salary-relief play tonight for some bigger names on this small slate.


John Wall- He has a tremendous matchup against the Warriors tonight and J-Wall tends to show up extra strong in great matchups. He always plays extremely well against teams at home and I look for him to go for 45+ FP tonight and help us dominate once again.


Other PG Plays: Russell Westbrook, Kyrie Irving, Rajon Rondo, Reggie Jackson



SG:


Klay Thompson- He’s played pretty good but not as good since his 70-burger performance against Sacramento. He has a great matchup tonight, especially if Curry can’t go and that catapults Thompson to the Warriors #1 option. He’s facing a Wizards team who gives up an average of 40.2 FP to SG and he’s not priced as a #1 option should be so we need to take advantage of that fact tonight.


J.R. Smith- He has unexpectedly played up to his abilities lately and 2 games straight played 28 and 29 minutes respectively. In both of those outings he’s scored 31+ FP and that’s well above 6x his value on most sites and with this being a 4 game slate, our options are limited. If he reaches 25+ FP again tonight that’s a great value for our team.


Other SG Plays: Monta Ellis, DeMar DeRozan, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

Five Undervalued Arms for 2015

Joe Pisapia is the author of the #1 best selling Fantasy Baseball Black Book 2015 Edition on the Kindle Store and  iTunes for Apple Devices . He is also host of the Fantasy Black Book on Sirius/XM Fantasy and the Dear Mr. Fantasy Podcast .


It's all about value. The key to gaining an advantage over your fellow league mates is your ability to find quality talent in the latter stages of your fantasy draft. The owners that can do this consistently are able to overcome injuries on their roster easier and will have a distinct advantage over their peers as the long season rolls forward. Those who can't will find themselves behind, chasing hot streaks on the waiver wire. With the pitching pool as deep as it is in 2015, there are an abundance of late round arms that have a great chance of outperforming their draft status.


Here are FIVE UNDERVALUED ARMS that are currently showing an ADP of #150 or greater according to www.fantasypros.com you should be targeting.


1) Zack Wheeler NYM ADP #150
Harvey got all the publicity (even though he never threw a pitch last year) and deGrom garnered all the buzz in 2014 with his Rookie of the Year campaign. However, Zack Wheeler quietly made strides in becoming a front line starter. In the second half, he lowered his ERA from 3.90 to 3.04, dropped his WHIP from 1.35 to 1.29, and raised his strikeout rate from 8.7 to 9.6 K/9. Those are all strong signs of development in the right direction. He wore down a bit in September as his new innings threshold was reached (185 IP), which is typical. His road ERA (3.09) was far better than his home 4.30 mark. If he can learn to relax in from of the home crowd there is a good chance he will be the best value of the three young Mets hurlers. The team may still hold back his wins, but he has a chance to be a sneaky good selection for all fantasy rotations in 2015.
2) Jose Quintana CWS ADP #175
If Quintana pitched for a big market team then his buzz would be much greater. Alas, pitching for the South Siders has kept his profile relatively low. That’s a good thing for fantasy owners from a value stand point. He’s just 26 years-old and already has thrown back to back 200 inning seasons with a 3-1 K/BB ratio, a 1.24 WHIP, and a K/9 of 8. He handles left handed and right handed batters with ease. His ERA was 3.68 or better home and away and 3.44 or better in both halves. Outside of a poor August, Quintana was a stud all season long. There is another level in him and even if he doesn't reach it this season he's still a terrific keeper asset. Quintana is a great selection in all formats, and an improved offense in Chicago could help him finally reach the win totals he deserves.
3) Mike Fiers MIL ADP # 184
Fiers came out of nowhere in 2012 and just as quickly vanished in 2013. Instead of moping, Fiers got to work in 2014 at AAA and dominated (2.55 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 11.3 K/9, 1.5 BB/9). He deserved a second chance and he made the most of it with the Brewers and flourished with the big club (10 starts, 2.09 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, 9.9 K/9). There is no way the Brew Crew can keep Fiers out of their rotation. He was lights out at home and on the road and, with that above average strikeout rate, he has sleeper written all over him. At 30, this is his prime and you should not be concerned with his poor 2013 season. Frankly, he did enough last year to shake those doubts and he should be on your radar in all formats. He has a very strong chance to well outperform his ADP.

4) Derek Holland TEX ADP #250
Did I miss something? I know Holland missed most of last season with a fluke non-arm related injury. However, his 2013 numbers were worthy of a #2 fantasy starter. So how does he now fall to #250 overall? Shortsightedness, that's how. He managed to salvage five starts in 2014 and pitched well, winning two of those starts with a sub 1.50 ERA. Texas is a team in transition, but two years ago Holland had clearly turned a corner showing he could be a workhorse (213 IP) with front end potential (8.0 K/9/1.28 WHIP). He will come at a significant discount in this year’s draft as most owners shy away from guys who missed the majority of a season. His arm is by all accounts healthy so it's just plain ridiculous to underrate Holland in 2015. He's also just entering his prime years (he turns 28 next season). Lefties like Holland usually peak around this time later in their careers and Holland is right there ripe for the taking.
5) Jesse Hahn OAK ADP #372
In his 12 starts with the Padres, Hahn went 7-3 with a 2.96 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 8.4 K/9 in 2014. He was really behind the 8-ball from a stamina standpoint last year and was never going to hold up as the season went on. He threw just 69 innings in 2013. If you look at his first 7 starts with his 10.4 K/9 and 1.06 WHIP, he was dominant. Now, you can attribute second half fades for young pitchers to the league catching up to them. However, with Hahn I believe it was more a stamina issue than the league really figuring him out. The 25 year-old has front line ability and, despite the A’s offense holding his win total back, Hahn has a bright future. Expect an innings limit in 2015 of around 160-180 if they really push him. In keeper leagues, he’s a definite target.

NBA Trade Deadline Deals

Danny Stokes - Senior NBA Writer/Analyst for Legion Report @LegionReportNBA - Stokes.LegionReport@Gmail.com


goran-dragic
Lance Stephenson
Lance Stephenson has professed his love for the Brooklyn Nets, but they haven’t felt the same towards him. “It would be a blessing [to play in Brooklyn],” Stephenson said. “But right now, Charlotte, that’s what I’m doing right now.” He is coming off a career year with average of 13.8 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists with the Indiana Pacers. He signed a deal with the Hornet this past off-season for 2 years $18 million and a team option for a third year. He simply has not jelled with the team and its core leaders, Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson. On the season, his assist numbers are up from last year, but that can be attributed to the injuries to Kemba Walker. Along with that, his +/- on the season is -4.6. Coach Clifford has sat Stephenson multiple times in the fourth quarter due to lack of ball movement and spacing on the floor. A deal can would benefit both sides.
Potential Suitors: Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers, Brooklyn Nets
Arron Afflalo
Contrary to Lance Stephenson, Arron Afflalo hasn’t done anything detriment to the Nuggets. The team is not going to make the playoffs, and he could yield them assets to build for the future. There have been rumors that Coach Brian Shaw has lost the locker room, and new players could reshape the culture in Denver. On the season, Afflalo is averaging 14.5 points per game – his lowest since the 2010-11 season. His defense hasn’t waivered, though. According to NBA.com, Affalo’s matchups have shot 2.1% worse from the field against him than they do on the season.
Potential Suitors: Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls
Goran Dragic and Isiah Thomas
The Suns are in a predicament with their two point guards. Goran Dragic is due to hit free agency this offseason and Isiah Thomas was just signed to a 4 year $27 million contract. Dragic would be the player that comes to mind as the most likeliest to be dealt, but according to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Suns would rather trade Isiah Thomas because he tends to be ball dominant. Dragic has been linked to the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers, as well. Trades to those teams would make sense as they have had trouble with their starting point guards’ production. Thomas would be traded to provide his next team as a Sixth Man ideally. No teams have been leaked to him, however.
Potential Suitors for Dragic: Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets
Enes Kanter
Anyone who plays fantasy basketball rushed to pick up Rudy Gobert after his coming out block party. That left Enes Kanter to sit. Coming out of Kentucky, Kanter was supposed to be a dominant force. He plays 29 minutes per game and is frustrated with empty promises made by head coach, Tyrone Corbin. Utah has 19 wins on the season and has not shot at making the playoffs. Still, Kanter is in only his third season and would bring back a good package for Utah to keep rebuilding. As far as a potential suitor, no teams or leaked stories have come out about Kanter, but teams like the Wizards and Clippers could use some rebounding from the big man.
