The NBA season is off and running.  For those of you that don’t don’t know me, I go by the name of Daddybigs in the DFS community.  I am excited to be part of the Razzball team and doing the weekend Draftkings NBA write up.  Like to thank Sky and JB for this opportunity.  OK enough of the pleasantries.  Let’s get on with it.  First thing I would like to point out that is different from last year on Draftkings is that you don’t have the roster flexibility due to the strict player positions.  Also with the NFL, NHL and College Football going on, be smart with your bankroll.

On Saturday we have a 13 game slate.  That’s good to keep the percentage owned down.

Razzball Nation!

You’ve been clamoring for it, protesting for it, eager for it… But now it’s back!  DraftKings is once again a Razzball Basketball sponsor, so if you’re playing daily fantasy, DraftKings is the place to go.

Starting next Wednesday, DraftKings is spoiling Razzball Basketball with a RAZZBALL ONLY contest, which players can only get through a link on the Razzball Basketball article.  It will be mano-y-mano against Razzball competition.

Why daily fantasy?  Well, we all know the fantasy basketball season is a grind, so with daily fantasy leagues you win right away, never have to deal with injuries, and can talk smack on the spot.  If you’re new to daily fantasy, you’re given a starting budget ($50,000 in DraftKings) and select players that you think will score the most that night using that budget.  Scoring for DraftKings is similar to a points league, and you can find the breakdown here.

“Isn’t daily fantasy for money?” you may ask.  Well, a lot of the time it is, but you can play for as little as $0.25 along with playing in a ton of free contests with some substantial payouts.  Like the contest I’m in tonight (my username is JBRazzball), the NBA $50K LAYUP which is paying out $50 grand in cash prizes and is absolutely FREE!  Yup, free.  So clickity-click the link right there, and draft a team tonight!

With the Razzball only contest starting next week, I’m only giving away 5 of my picks each week.  That’s still 5 of my 8 players, so you’re getting a pretty in-depth glimpse into my soul!  You’re all like Mrs. Cleo out there… And of those picks, I’m going to try and pick a few value guys and a few bigger names that I think are worth the price.  Here’s my starting 5 for DraftKings tonight:

Razzball Nation!  So if you’re reading this you’re probably in the playoffs of your fantasy league, but if not and you read for my mere musings and devilishly witty forays into the intricacies of the English language (and obtuse adjective overuse), then huzzah!  And huzzah for a site like DraftKings.com where you can draft a new line-up every day and play the matchups that you decide for the players you pick on a nightly basis.  Maybe you squeaked into your playoffs with all your hopes and dreams that Derrick Rose would be playing by now, only to get crushed by the 3 seed.  Either way, if you lost your fantasy league buy-in or it seems to be as useless as a Bernie Madoff investment, why not play in daily tournaments where your winnings can be much higher!  Today DraftKings is running their SUPERQualifier for their $150k Bank Shot, where 25 people will win a ticket into their huge $150k contest.  First place will win $50k for picking the best lineup tonight in only one day of fantasy goodness.  It’d be like winning your NCAA bracket in a single night.  Would be a rush.  More a rush than going to see Rush.  Ok, so they were before my time, but I like their music when it’s on.  Here’s who I like tonight to give you a rush of cash:

It’s the last week of the regular season, which means roughly 40-50% of fantasy basketball will be over for the owners who didn’t make the playoffs.  But don’t worry!  You don’t have to wait until fantasy drafts next October to get back to your fantasy winning days.  Our friends at DraftKings run huge $ daily fantasy contests, and have got some of their biggest payouts yet.  Play today in their $150,000 Bank Shot and for an entry fee of only $200, you could win $50,000!  Payouts will go to the top 100 players, and the prize pool would make John Dillinger proud.  Or you can always hop in the $15,000 Big Wednesday for an entry fee of only $27 and win $3 G’s!  Now let me try and help you win some money with some good value picks for tonight:

It’s that time of year.  You’re either chomping at the bit because you’re in a good position for the playoffs, or you’ve sworn off even looking at your league because you’re too frustrated Derrick Rose never helped you out.  That’s why it’s an awesome time to check out our friends at DraftKings, where you can draft a new roster every day and win big money prizes.  In a special day of contests with an almost full slate of NBA action, it’s a perfect time to hop into one of three different $10,000 contests going on tonight!  Buy in for as little as $11!  Or you can up your bet for a bigger chance of winning for $109 or $1,050.  There’s $10,000 to be won for all levels of players!  And I’m gonna help you win that money with some insight on players who are going to be huge tonight that you can get on the cheap:

As we get nearer and nearer to the fantasy basketball playoffs and more avid fans are knocked out of their league competish, what better way to keep up with fantasy than with our friends at DraftKings who run daily contests for big money prizes.  I know what you’re thinking… What’s big money?  How about $50 G’s!  No, that’s not how many G’s are in Tom Gugliota’s last name (I think it’s only those two… Maybe there’s another hidden silent one…).  You can qualify for as little as $5.  That’s multiplying your money by 10,000!  Best believe!  And for an exclusive offer, click here for a 100% Deposit bonus on any deposit under $600.

Once the NBA has wrapped up, do not fret DraftKings aficionados!  They will be running the same daily challenges for big money during the MLB season.  Just how much money did winners receive from MLB DraftKings challenges last year?! $5.5 million buck-a-roos!  And unlike leagues where you drafted Matt Kemp, Jacoby Ellsbury, or Troy Tulowitzki, the gods of injury won’t dispel your entire season as you can draft anew every day.  All you favorite types of games – double-ups, steps, qualifiers, GPPs, sit-n-gos – will be coming soon for the MLB.

But back to hoops, let’s take a look at some of the mid-tier guys I like for good values tonight:
