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:

Jonas Valanciunas ($4,200) - Gets a soft matchup tonight at the Bobcats and coming off tying his second highest points output his last game out.  Was 7-8 FG and 4-4 FT for 18 points against the Heat on the 17th and I think could go for 20-10 tonight starting at the 5.  Easily one of the best values tonight, I like him to bring ya the green.

Andrew Bogut ($5,100) - Bogut is another center I like, who doesn’t do it flashy on the scoring end, but puts stats across all categories with reckless abandon.  Went 8-9-5-1-4 against the Hornets Monday night, and while the matchup tonight at San Antonio looks back on paper, remember it’ the boards, assists, steals and blocks that make Bogut what he is, so it should be a gritty game for the Aussie to get the numbers.

Gordon Hayward ($4,700) - Scoring consistently, hitting 3′s consistently (3 in both his last 2) and gets a great matchup against the fast pace Rockets.  Played 37 and 38 minutes in the last two as well, so I see a nice 20+ points game coming from the Jazz swingah.

Mo Williams ($4,400) - Another Jazz player I like in what should be an up tempo, high scoring game is Mo-Will, who I think can go something like 14-6-8 with a few threes and steals.  Will be a fun game to watch.

Dorell Wright ($4,200) - A great value tonight for Wright, who is another player who gets a matchup that shoul be fast-paced and high scoring, at least high for the Clippers, which means the Sixers will be shooting from deep.  Has had increasing minutes in the past 4 games and along with the obvious scoring and 3-pointers is contributing in other categories as well.

Wayne Ellington ($3,800) - Gets the start tonight with Dion Waiters out with a sore knee.  With a tough matchup trying to break LeBron’s streak, I could see Ellington getting a lot of shots in this one.  For the value, you won’t find anyone with much more upside tonight than Ellington.

 

Good luck tonight, and if these picks win you some money, buy me a Crown & Coke on my new donate button on the main basketball page.  Win that money!

    Idk where to post this, sorry but I need some solid playoff advice

    I’m the #3 or #4 seed when playoffs start on Monday and I think I need to drop Kevin Love.
    I’m in a league where you can make 3 add/drops per week. So I need to drop him by Sunday so I can start off with a clean slate of add/drops during Week 1 of playoffs.

    I think it’s to big of a risk not have an extra player all week yaknow? (do you agree?)

    Here’s my question who would you add ?(that’s widely available)
    I need 3′s, steals, or blocks.

      @gslayton: This is a fine place to post, good sir! Yea I would drop Love then especially with your seeding. I like Dorell Wright, if available. Gets those 3′s plus steals and blocks. Also maybe Wilson Chandler if not scooped up already.

      @Frank Lynch: You’re fine man, was just confused. Not sure why you were so mad. I guess the Rose comment, but that’s the biggest story in fantasy, I’ve been getting questions on him all the time. Aren’t you in a bye week too? Wow Evans is available? Yea I pick him up for Rose he’s playing great and is for-sure playing.

    I grabbed tyreke evans for brewer but it doesn’t go through for a day cause he’s a waiver but i have to do it. He’s 89% owned and he’s numbers have been great but I can always cancell if u think otherwise.. But Tobias Harris I gotta get Cause remember I only have 1 PF n thats Griffen. I need another one. He also is a center Which I have 4 including Griffen. Just in case Chandler isn’t ready to go also.. Idk. Let me know?

    Hey I dropped brewer foe evans.. Why drop Rose? They said the next % games at the most. They said 2 days ago that he was gonna join on the 3 game stretch and they have 2 more games to go.. Also you sure I should grab harris for Chandler? I thought you said He’ll be fine by next week.. I will though in case he takes longer just wanna make sure.. I can also drop Okafor but I don’t know who’s better??
