Week 8 of daily fantasy basketball is officially in the books! Here are some random thoughts looking forward to Week 9:
Rajon Rondo, Jeff Green, Jared Sullinger & Co: Well… It has been real Rondo. I wouldn’t mess with this roster. It’s a recipe for disaster.
Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez & Co: While Deron Williams is out, be sure to put Jack in your line ups. ISO Joe is a definite must play while Mr. Fragile and Mr. Softy are out.
Carmelo Anthony, Jose Calderon, Amare Stoudemire & Co: Melo has been dealing with some knee issues. Keep that in mind.
Michael Carter-Williams & Co: Covington is definitely earning praise with Coach Brown. I still don’t understand his roster rotations. For daily fantasy basketball purposes, it would be wise to avoid.
Kyle Lowry, Demar Derozan, Jonas Valanciunas & Co: For daily fantasy basketball purposes, Kyle Lowry is your man. Probably the most consistent player on this roster.
Rajon Rondo, Dirk Nowiztki, Monta Ellis, Tyson Chandler & Co: This roster is LOADED.
James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Dwight Howard & Co: JAMES HARDEN FOLKS. For daily fantasy basketball, he never disappoints. Keep your tabs on D12.
Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph, Mike Conley & Co: No ZBo, no problem. Leuer is a the main beneficiary while ZBo remains inactive. Marc Gasol will also be needed to perform at a high level in Zbo’s absence.
Anthony Davis, Tyreke Evans, Jrue Holiday & Co: Anthony Davis, I just don’t know when to pick you.
Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard & Co: When the “Big 3” rests, keep tabs on everyone on that roster. They are all cheap risky players, but high reward players.
Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol & Co: Jimmy Ballin’, my goodness. Does he ever rest? Sheesh. He’s averaging 40+ minutes a game.
Lebron James, Kyrie Iriving, Kevin Love & Co: The King might as well play PG. He’s averaging a ton more assists than the starting PG.
Josh Smith Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond & Co: Detroit literally cut Josh Smith. They practically got nothing out of him. That’s kind of embarrassing on J-Smoove’s part. Watching him literally makes others worse around him.
David West, Roy Hibbert & Co: C’mon Hibby. Seriously. What is wrong with you?
Jabari Parker Greek Freak, Brandon Knight, Larry Sanders & Co: For daily fantasy basketball, I honestly hate Jason Kidd’s rotations. However, I must admit, he’s doing one heck of a job with this young squad. #KUDOS
Ty Lawson, Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, Timothy Mozgov & Co: Our prayers out to Danilo. You’ve been going through a rough stretch with knee injuries these past two years. We wish you speedy recovery. On a side note, #FREEMANIMAL.
Mo Williams, Andrew Wiggins, Thaddeus Young & Co: Shabazz Muhammed, where did you come from?
Russell Westbrook, Reggie Jackson, Serge Ibaka & Co: For daily fantasy basketball, Russell Westbrook is practically impossible to stop.
Damian Lillard, Nicolas Batum, Lamarcus Aldridge & Co: Dame is going to be a very, very special player in this league. He just keeps getting better.
Trey Burke, Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors & Co: I don’t understand this roster one bit. AVOID.
Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, Al Horford & Co: One of my favorite teams to watch this season. They have been BALLIN’.
Kemba Walker, Lance Stephenson, Al Jefferson & Co: Chumpcats.
Mario Chalmers, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh & Co: This team is falling, fast. McRoberts done for the season. Bosh still hurt. Wade with knee problems. Where do they get their production? That’s the question.
Victor Oladipo, Tobias Harris, Nikola Vucevic & Co: Oladipo is heating up and Vucevic has seen his usage rate skyrocket this season.
John Wall, Bradley Beal, Marcin Gortat & Co: For daily fantasy basketball, John Wall is way too overvalued/expensive. You’re a fool if you play him with other quality point guards named Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, Chris Paul, etc.
Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut & Co: David Lee looks way too out of shape.
Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Deandre Jordan & Co: Blake Griffin doesn’t get enough credit for his passing ability. His jumper is funky, but still has plenty of FGM.
Kobe Bryant & Co: I’m pretty sure Mamba’s willingness to shoot has gone down after passed MJ.
Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe, Isaiah Thomas, Gerald Green & Co: Who the heck knows. No one knows. This team is one of daily fantasy basketball’s worst nightmare.
Darren Collison, Rudy Gay, Demarcus Cousins & Co: With DMC back, expect him to continue his rampage.
