Buy Low:
Gerald Wallace

Raymond Felton

Richard Hamilton

Danilo Gallinari, Paul Millsap, Stephen Curry and any other productive fantasy players who are injured should be considered buy-low candidates. (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 3.2.12

Beast of the Night: LeBron James posted a sick line to the tune of 38 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, five steals, one block and two three-pointers. He shot 59 percent (13-22) from the field, 83 percent (10-12) from the free-throw line and had zero turnovers (in 41 minutes of play). Sure, the absence of Chris Bosh helped, but these sorts of nights are expected from the No. 1 fantasy stud in the land.

Lines for Discussion:
Kevin Durant: 12-21 FG (57%), 9-9 FT (100%), 5 threes, 38 Pts, 8 Reb, 3 Ast, 5 TO; on most other nights, this would’ve been worthy of “Best of the Night” honors

Nikola Pekovic: 6-12 FG (50%), 2-2 FT (100%), 14 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Blk, 2 TO; Pekovic has cooled off lately, but he’ll bounce back sooner than later

Mo Williams: 7-14 FG (50%), 4 threes, 18 Pts, 1 Reb, 5 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 TO; Williams is getting a steady diet of minutes but has failed to take full advantage of them, mostly because of his struggles from the field (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Jamal Crawford finished with 21 points, five rebounds, five assists, one steal, two blocks and five threes in his second consecutive start last night. He shot 53 percent (8-15) from the floor and had one turnover. Crawford looks set to continue being the Blazers’ starting point guard, relegating the struggling Raymond Felton to the bench. So long as he’s starting, Crawford will see a nice bump in value.

Lines for Discussion:
Drew Gooden: 7-15 FG (47%), 9-9 FT (100%), 23 Pts, 8 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 TO; his health, as usual, remains something worth monitoring throughout the rest of the season

Kevin Garnett: 9-18 FG (50%), 7-9 FT (78%), 25 Pts, 10 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 1 TO; all Garnett’s numbers (except for his turnovers) are better when he’s a starting center this season

Jeremy Lin: 6-12 FG (50%), 7-9 FT (78%), 19 Pts, 5 Reb, 13 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; if Baron Davis can continue to give a solid 15-20 minutes a night, and if Lin can continue to keep his turnovers down, the Harvard grad will have a shot at maintaining top 35 value (continue reading…)
