Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 4.11.12

by on Apr.11, 2012, under Other

DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans

Beast of the Night: DeMarcus Cousins finished with 25 points, 18 rebounds, three assists, six steals and two blocks last night. He shot 52 percent (11-21) from the floor and 75 percent (3-4) from the free-throw line, and had three turnovers. Cousins has been erratic lately, but he’s still averaging 19.7 points, 11.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 block per game so far this month.

Lines for Discussion:
Kevin Garnett: 11-14 FG (79%), 2-2 FT (100%), 24 Pts, 9 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Blk, 4 TO; for the season, KG is averaging top 15 numbers

Rajon Rondo: 6-11 FG (55%), 5-8 FT (63%), 1 three, 18 Pts, 4 Reb, 15 Ast, 3 TO; Rondo’s dished out 10+ assists in each of his last 18 games

Tyreke Evans: 7-14 FG (50%), 1-4 FT (25%), 1 three, 16 Pts, 3 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO; Evans has been a true disappointment this season, and his shift to the SF spot has done nothing to change that (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Basketball Recap: 4.2.12 (Weekend Review)

by on Apr.02, 2012, under Quick hits

Gerald Wallace

Weekend Wonder: Gerald Wallace averaged 21.0 points, 12.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 4.0 steals, 1.0 block and 2.0 threes in two games over the weekend. In this stretch, he shot 54 percent from the floor and 89 percent from the free-throw line, while averaging 2.5 turnovers per game. It’s only been nine games, but Wallace has averaged better all-around numbers (top 20 value) for the Nets than those he was putting up in Portland earlier this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Kevin Garnett (3/30): 12-18 FG (67%), 24 Pts, 10 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Blk, 2 TO; in his 25 starts at center for the Celtics this season, Garnett has averaged 16.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 blocks, while shooting 54 percent from the floor and 86 percent from the free-throw line

Brandon Jennings (3/31): 9-19 FG (47%), 4-4 FT (100%), 2 threes, 24 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; since Ellis’ arrival in that backcourt, Jennings has averaged 17.3 points, 2.8 boards, 4.9 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.2 threes, while shooting 43 percent from the floor and 84 percent from the free-throw line

Anthony Morrow (3/31): 8-17 FG (47%), 2-3 FT (67%), 6 threes, 24 Pts, 5 Reb, 1 Stl; going forward, Morrow should be viewed solely as a three-point specialist (continue reading…)

Lebron James

Weekend Wonder: LeBron James averaged 30.0 points, 11.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 2.5 blocks and 0.5 threes in two huge games over the weekend. He shot 56 percent from the field, 50 percent from the free-throw line and averaged 1.5 turnovers in that stretch. It’s good to be king.

Lines for Discussion:
Jared Dudley (3/2): 7-14 FG (50%), 5-6 FT (83%), 3 threes, 22 Pts, 7 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk; in his last four games, Dudley is averaging a healthy 16.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.5 blocks and 1.0 three, while shooting 54 percent from the field

Jordan Crawford (3/3): 13-22 FG (59%), 0-1 FT (0%), 5 threes, 31 Pts, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 TO; Crawford has been a top 25 stud since Valentine’s Day, but it should be noted that Nick Young sat this game out with a bruised knee

Jarrett Jack (3/3): 6-11 FG (55%), 5-6 FT (83%), 1 three, 18 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Blk, 3 TO; Jack is back in the starting lineup for the Hornets, but his knee remains a concern (continue reading…)

Josh Smith

Beast of the Night: Josh Smith exploded for 30 points, 17 rebounds, seven assists, four steals, three blocks and two three-pointers last night. He shot 52 percent (12-23) from the field and 67 percent (4-6) from the free-throw line, and turned the ball over four times. Smith is improving his averages from month to month and continues to be a dominant fantasy asset on most nights.

Lines for Discussion:
Kevin Martin: 10-18 FG (56%), 8-8 FT (100%), 4 threes, 32 Pts, 1 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; he’s a crapshoot for the time being

Ryan Anderson: 9-12 FG (75%), 2-2 FT (100%), 7 threes, 27 Pts, 2 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 TO; he’s hitting 3.2 threes per game through nine games this month

Ben Gordon: 8-15 FG (53%), 2-2 FT (100%), 4 threes, 22 Pts, 3 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO; he’s still coming off the bench but should eventually find some sort of consistency (continue reading…)
