Beast of the Night: Jose Calderon started March off in a huge way, posting 22 points, seven rebounds, 16 assists, one steal and three three-pointers.  He shot 70 percent (7-10) from the field, 100 percent (5-5) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. This was the first time in a while that Calderon’s offense was as good as his dishing. He remains a strong fantasy play, especially if you need assists.

Beast of the Night: Dwight Howard posted 31 points, 17 rebounds, two steals and two blocks last night against the Kings.  He shot 59 percent (10-17) from the field, 92 percent (11-12) from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. Howard’s averaging a career-high 23 points and 1.2 steals per game this season. He remains a stud, so long as you can handle his poor free-throw shooting.

Lines for Discussion:
John Wall: 8-19 FG (42%), 4-5 FT (80%), 1 three, 21 Pts, 5 Reb, 12 Ast, 2 Stl, 4 TO

Ramon Sessions: 8-14 FG (57%), 3-5 FT (60%), 1 three, 20 Pts, 3 Reb, 12 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 TO (continue reading…)

In the slightly tweaked words of Mary J. Blige, no more ‘Melodrama. It should come as a surprise to no one but the blindest Nets fan that Carmelo Anthony has finally landed in Manhattan to play for the New York Knicks. While the deal is awaiting league approval, and though some of these names will probably move again before Thursday’s trade deadline, here’s a quick look at the fantasy impact of this mega deal. To read my full thoughts on the fallout, head on over to DimeMag.com.

New York Knicks get: Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter, Renaldo Balkman and Corey Brewer

Fantasy impact:
↔ Carmelo Anthony

↑ Chauncey Billups

↔ Amar’e Stoudemire

↑ Ronny Turiaf (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 2.11.11

[Read the full post at DimeMag.com]

Beast of the Night: Chauncey Billups posted 30 points, five rebounds, nine assists, three steals, a block and five three-pointers.  He shot 53 percent (10-19) from the field, 100 percent (5-5) from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. This was especially good to see given that he missed the game before this with a knee injury, which appears to have been minor now. Trade possibilities aside, Billups has worked past his early-season struggles to be a top-25 fantasy player once again.

Lines for Discussion:
Pau Gasol: 8-13 FG (62%), 4-6 FT (67%), 20 Pts, 10 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Blk

Jason Terry: 9-17 FG (53%), 1-2 FT (50%), 6 threes, 25 Pts, 1 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Kevin Durant went bonkers last night, posting 47 points, 18 rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and four three-pointers in an overtime victory over the Timberwolves. He shot 54 percent (15-28) from the field, 93 percent (13-14) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. This was easily one of the superior fantasy performances of the season so far.

Lines for Discussion:
Roy Hibbert: 2-6 FG (33%), 0-2 FT (0%), 4 Pts, 2 Reb, 2 TO

Chauncey Billups: 9-16 FG (56%), 2-2 FT (100%), 6 threes, 26 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast (continue reading…)
