Hoopscritic DFS: Where Weird Nights Happen

Last night was truly one of the strangest this NBA season, essentially just throwing out everyone’s DFS projections out the window. Cleveland and Utah was the game everyone avoided because it featured two of the best defensive teams in the NBA and two of the slowest pace teams in the NBA… until both teams decided to forget those facts and put up a 234 total. Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant were two of the best plays …

Hoopscritic DFS: Week 3 Begins

Holy cats. Just encase you haven’t noticed, Andre Drummond is proving to be pretty good at basketball this season and has been pretty good at making DFS owners a lot of money.

Ouch. Our lineup yesterday wasn’t all that bad if you look at it from the point of view where a majority of the picks performed at expected value. Stauskas played exactly as we thought he would in his new increased role, Festus Ezeli came through once again as the top “punt” play of this young season and Andre Iguodala contributed nice value at just $4,400. Ended the night with the punts scoring 75 points, which …
