If you’ve been reading these blurbs every Wednesday and have been tempted to try your hand at a DraftKings game, then today would be a good day to take advantage of the 100% Deposit Bonus (up to $600). And if you need some pointers on how to pick your team, buddy, do I have a pillowcase full of doorknobs to smack your brain with (where doorknobs = hints and tips). So jump on in for the $15,000 Big Wednesday Challenge and heed my words, for I have written them:

Over the past week, Kyle Korver ($4,400) is averaging 5 threes, 20 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, a steal and a block. Meanwhile, his team is going up against Toronto, a team which has allowed 105 points per game over the past 10 games. Sounds like a great choice to roll with, don’t you agree? His teammate Jeff Teague ($6,200) has been producing 20 points, 2 threes, 4 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals recently, and would be a solid pick as well. Of course, no team has allowed more points against this month than Sacramento, and Boston rolls into town sans Rondo. Avery Bradley ($3,000) has been going for 9/2.5/0.5 with 1.5 threes in 7 days and is a good gamble for minutes. If you need a forward, Amar’e Stoudemire ($6,400) has been shooting for 18 points with 7 rebounds and a block, but he is also going up against a weak Orlando defense.

Ersan Ilyasova ($7,000) has been in beast mode this past week, going for 25 points (3 threes), 12 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and a block. The catch is he will be up against the Bulls, who have defended the shot very well. Likewise, Deron Williams ($8,100) has been a star with 19 points, 3 threes, 4.5 rebounds, 8.5 assists, a steal and a block, but Miami has been able to keep opponents down and has been a top 5 defense over the past couple of weeks. While it is tempting to run with them, I might avoid. Definitely avoid Chris Paul ($8,900 – still day to day) and Rajon Rondo ($8,800 – out for season). I could see ducking Monta Ellis ($6,900) despite his current delicious hot steak, I mean streak, as he is up against that stingy Chicago team.

If you’re looking for some good values, Metta World Peace ($4,400) has been creating sparks with 16 points, 6 rebounds, an assist, a steal, a block and nearly 4 threes over the past week, and Amir Johnson ($4,500) has been earning 16 points, 8 rebounds, a steal, an assist, and 1.5 blocks. Good luck, folks.

    Please rank in terms of preference
    My Bogut for Faried
    My Bogut for AK47
    My Bogut & Parsons for Anthony Davis

    Lots of guys on the wire – 10 Team Weekly H2H so I wanna move Bogut since he’s too much of a risk to play weekly. AK47 has a few more games than Faried down the stretch and in the playoffs if that matters. PLEASE HELP!

    Raps Get Gay! Grizz get Price and Daye and Davis, Pistons Calderon. Not sure if there are any winners or losers from a fantasy perspective. Im in a deep 16 team league any insight? Any players that get more minutes as a result?

      @DanPhilip: Three team trades sometimes confuse me because I am but a simple farmer using a library computer 17 miles from my house. Gay replaces Davis, so that means Amir may lose out the most when Valancuwhatever returns, except Amir has been doing so well.

    Rank these players? H2H, 8 Team League, 9Cat

    I have these guys:

    Guards: Westbrook, Jennings, Conley, Afflalo, Lin, Jack
    Forwards: Durant, Anthony Davis, Amir Johnson, Drummond
    Center: Hibbert, Gortat, Monroe

    I have Korver, Barnes, D. Collison, Teague on my waiver wire as well as Bynum. I’m 1 in my league. Whats the ROS of these people on my waiver wire?

    I’m thinking I drop Afflalo for Korver now or drop Amir for Korver.

      @Mike: I would drop Aff before Amir.
