Tonight in NBA DFS we have 7 games, which is the perfect amount of games for me. There’s a lot of really solid options to choose from, but the options aren’t overwhelming either. My number one piece of advice for NBA DFS in general is to be on top of injury updates. Contests are won […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re back from break and podding in the new year! After spending a week in a basketball deprivation tank, Joel and Son kick off 2024 by surveying their fantasy teams and discussing what’s gone right (Alperen Sengun for Son, Grayson Allen for Joel) and what’s gone wrong (Cade Cunningham and Devin Booker for both.) The […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, we just passed the “third-mark” of the season, which as the term implies, was the point when the third of the season was reached… not sure why I created a term and defined when I could have just saved a step, but then again, I live in a world where word count equals money, […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Back from Turkey Day, Joel and Son wonder when it’s too early to start worrying about roto percentages and then take a deep dive into Boston’s starting five. Should managers feel burned about spending a first-round pick on Tatum? Will Porizingis’ efficiency gains hold? Is there any hope for Jrue Holiday and Jaylen Brown? https://api.spreaker.com/v2/episodes/57836560/download.mp3Podcast: […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
Every day when I see LeBron James do this thing, it just convinces me further that he is the only being in the entire universe that could survive its eventual demise. Dude will be still be averaging near-triple-doubles while the sun goes super nova and will still be playing when, like his what, great-great to […] Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Bergens are coming, AHHH. The Bergens are coming, AHHH. The Bergens are coming, AHHH. The Bergens are coming, AHHH.
For those without kids, that’s Branch in “Trolls” overreacting because he’s scared of success (and friendship), just like so many fantasy basketball players will overreact to the first couple games, when regular bench rotations guys will be proclaimed breakouts of the season, and busts will be said to abound as the rust gets knocked off the boots.
However, while we definitely don’t want to overreact, let’s remember: Branch ended up being right. You don’t want to be caught with that average penny stock and telling yourself, “any day now, it’s gunna go crazy!” [Checks portfolio, sighs with depression, gets back to basketball.] Keep an eye on minutes, rotations and usage more than the general stat lines in these early going.
And with that piece of nonsensical advice, let’s get on with the show! Here’s what caught my eye in the 12 games of the unofficial official opening night in The Association. Please, blog, may I have some more?
The season is all but here and it is time to lay all the cards on the line. And what a great natural segue, as where do you find playing cards and basketball? That’s right folks, at the casino. And while we do things with the fantasy tilt here at Razz, unfortunately it’s nye impossible to talk anything sports nowadays without the almighty dollar attached to it. You know because I brought out the Olde Ye English. The technical term for serious talk between us and you shan’t forget it. Anyways, we’ll have the usual “potentially” entertaining analysis and content below plus the New World Order (aka the Vegas SPREAD) and my takes on the O/U. So let’s get to the Eastern Conference, a setting that generally feels a lot less competitive than its Western counterparts, but still offers an interesting blend of playoff juggernauts, underperforming teams, and everything in-between. There’s also the Hornets, but really, that should be a category in of all itself. Maybe the “hide your women when they come to town” type of category. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome one and all to the go-to place to hang out this NBA fantasy offseason! (Maybe?) True, it is a desolate place, so that’s why we’re going to liven things up a bit and start checking out all the trades that happened during the 2023 offseason, along with adding some of that fantasy spice for your content pleasure. Just the way your mother likes it. And as they say about spice, it must flow, so shall it flow! Regal, am I right? Spice is of course the fantasy content if you weren’t following or don’t enjoy Dune references. Regardless, while we’re not starting in any particular order, today we’ll be talking about the three-team trade that went something like this: Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hello and happy weekend to the fantasy basketball world. It’s crunch time with many leagues’ playoffs wrapping up and roto contests speeding to the finish line. I’m coming to you from the boardwalk of Pacific Beach in the San Diego area. Spring Break! Woooo! [Yeah, dude, you’re old and have three kids with you; settle down.] So, I’m going to get right into the Friday Night recap, and skip the story about that one time I rented an AirBnB in a really sketchy part of town and there was a creepy basement with some sort of gargoyle living in it that would look up to me and screech, “Mamu?!” Please, blog, may I have some more?
As the wheels continued to fall off the Wizards’ season Wednesday night, Nikola Jokic kept rollin’ in the opposite direction to the tune of 31 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and three steals in a convincing 118-104 win for Denver. His absolutely insane efficiency continued, as he shot 12-of-16 from the field and 5-of-5 at the charity stripe. This guy fills up the box score and basically doesn’t miss in the process.

If you’ve been reading my NBA Wednesday fantasy recaps throughout the season, then you’ve probably noticed that I like to give a different team the focus each and every week. Gotta keep it fresh for you, right?
Well, this week I’m happy to finally land on the New Orleans Pelicans, one of the most interesting teams in the entire NBA. To me, the Pelicans are the No. 1 what if? team in the league. What if they could ever keep superstar Zion Williamson (hamstring this time) healthy? What if they could ever roll out their optimal starting lineup: C.J. McCollum, Brandon Ingram, Herbert Jones, Zion and Jonas Valanciunas? What if Jones (24 years old), Trey Murphy III (22) and Dyson Daniels (19) all happen to pan out? There are a lot of different ways things could potentially work out for these young Pelicans, but none of those ways have come to fruition just yet.
But Wednesday marked a step in the right direction, as the pesky Pelicans booked a huge 113-106 win over the reeling Dallas Mavericks. With the victory, New Orleans stayed a half-game ahead of the talented young Thunder for the final position in the West’s playoff ladder. Let’s dive in and take a closer look at Wednesday’s performances from a fantasy perspective. Please, blog, may I have some more?
Burning bridges. No good, as you never know what the universe has in store for the future. Having water under the bridge? A good sign because that means climate change hasn’t evaporated a big percentage of the water on Earth. Mikal Bridges? Well, he was always a solid fantasy asset because he chipped in everywhere without hurting anywhere. Now, Mikal is making it rain so many fantasy goodies that the water flowing under this Bridges is causing the fantasy landscape to transform before our eyes. On Sunday, there was a flash flood warning due to: Please, blog, may I have some more?
