Dollah makes me hollah! So imagine what $100 would do to me?! Probably a head explosion like in Scanners.
And when DraftKings told me they were throwing us another RAZZBALL ONLY CONTEST, my head exploded with comparable outward force. Yes, the Razzball Only Contest is back, and you can only get to it from my internet-yelling, all caps linkity link right there. Only 20 spots will be open to readers; in reality it’s only 18 since Slim and I are in there. The entry fee is $10, with first place taking home that head-exploding $100 bill. $100 for first, $50 for second, and $25 for 3rd and 4th place. That’s $200 for the 20 $10 spots, and for you regular daily players out there, that means no rake. Just Razzball Nation taking on Razzball nation, with DraftKings giving us the platform.
As always, you can follow me with the “jbrazzball” entry, and talk some mad game at me in the comments if you slap me around. A perfect Friday for Slapsgiving! So hit the link, sign up, and let’s get the contest filled so we can play all year, “Yes. We. Can.”
Here’s five of my picks for tonight in a typically big slate of Friday games, so pick bold and live long and prosper!
PG – Aaron Brooks – $3,800 – I had an even cheaper option in here earlier with J.J. Barea, but Kirk Hinrich has a purple nurple! Chest contusion late last night, and Derrick Rose is likely on the shelf until next week. Brooks might play the full 48! I’m sure he’ll be a very popular DraftKings play; let’s hope me picking him this time goes better!
SG – Jimmy Butler – $7,200 – Wow, all I can say is, I warned you D-Rose drafters! And this is why you gotta love daily fantasy, because even if you failed to heed the advice, you can wipe the slate clean by the next day. Buckets has been beastly like the Godzilla he is when Rose is out, and in what should be a fast-paced matchup against the Blazers tonight, I don’t see anything slowing down.
SF – P.J. Tucker – $3,600 – Another frugal gamble, P.J. was motivated (making up a narrative here) after getting a one-game team suspension for missing the Suns bus & flight earlier in the week and hit 6-8 FG for 16/7/1 with two treys for 27.25 FPTS on Wednesday. Against the awful Sixers, especially up front in the second unit, PJ should go all peanut butter and turn Davies/Covington/Mbah a Moute into jelly.
PF – Anthony Davis – $11,300 – Honey booboo chileeeeeee! Fantasy’s best player, DraftKings or otherwise, is a must for me tonight against Kenneth Faried, who might only play half the D minutes against him given the hatred Shaw has for the Manimal. Anchor for my DK.
C – Gorgui Dieng – $6,500 – I mentioned this pick on the Podcast yesterday, as the Spurs C defense is atrocious right now with no Tiago Splitter. Not that we need Dieng scoring a lot anyway, but he’s an efficient scorer with awesome defensive stats. Off a big win, I could see the Wolves keeping up with San Antonio longer than you’d think at home. Choo choo, why don’t ya hop aboard the Dieng Train with me!
Again the only way to hop in is through the link here (RAZZBALL EXCLUSIVE NBA CONTEST), and we’d love to have ya play against your Razz favorites myself and Slim! We really need to fill this one up to show DraftKings we can get bigger and better contests and keep the DraftKings a non-profit (well for us)!
