Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 4.13.12

by on Apr.13, 2012, under Quick hits

Jason Kidd

Beast of the Night: Jason Kidd looked like his old self last night, posting nine points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, three steals, two blocks and three three-pointers. He shot 50 percent (3-6) from the floor and had two turnovers. Kidd’s fantasy value has definitely taken a tumble this season, but he’s still putting up solid all-around numbers, thanks mostly to his threes and steals.

Lines for Discussion:
Klay Thompson: 8-17 FG (47%), 5-5 FT (100%), 3 threes, 24 Pts, 7 Reb, 8 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO; Thompson’s looked shaky lately, but he’s still a wicked source of threes

Manu Ginobili: 4-9 FG (44%), 11-11 FT (100%), 1 three, 20 Pts, 6 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Blk; Ginobili’s monstrous start to the season was derailed by his health, but he’s still a top 50 player so far this season

Chris Bosh: 8-16 FG (50%), 4-6 FT (67%), 20 Pts, 8 Reb, 2 Ast, 4 Blk; he’s had his ups and downs, but Bosh has remained a top 50 fantasy basketball asset this season (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 3.26.12 (Weekend Review)

by on Mar.26, 2012, under Quick hits

Kevin Love

What more do you want from the guy? (Layne Murdoch/NBAE via Getty Images)

Weekend Wonder: Kevin Love was a monster this past weekend, averaging 40.5 points, 17.5 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals, 2.0 blocks and 4.0 threes in two games. In this stretch, he shot 59 percent from the floor and 83 percent from the free-throw line, and averaged 2.0 turnovers per game. Love has asserted himself as the clear-cut No. 4 fantasy basketball player in the NBA, and should be viewed as such in next season’s drafts.

Lines for Discussion:
Ramon Sessions (3/23): 6-10 FG (60%), 6-8 FT (75%) 2 threes, 20 Pts, 6 Reb, 11 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 TO; he’s finally starting and looks to be a huge helper for his fantasy owners in their playoff periods

Klay Thompson (3/24): 10-20 FG (50%), 7-7 FT (100%), 4 threes, 31 Pts, 1 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 2 TO; the rookie has been an absolute stud since taking Stephen Curry’s spot in the starting lineup earlier this month

DeMarcus Cousins (3/24): 9-20 FG (45%), 10-11 FT (91%), 28 Pts, 18 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 3 Blk, 2 TO; if he can lift his field-goal percentage (43.5 percent for the season so far), Cousins would be come a no-brainer top 50 fantasy asset (continue reading…)
