Nine games on the schedule for Saturday, B plus rating.

$FanDuel/$DraftDay/$DraftStreet/$DailyJoust)

Randy Foye vs SAC ($5800/$7575/$9163/$113k) I want to put Foye up here often and I have in the past but only to be bitten by variance. He has strung some good games together by averaging 19.2pts, 3.0reb, and 3.2ast over his last five games. Facing Sacramento last night in Sacramento, Foye put up 20pts, 6reb, and 2ast, lets hope he gets near that again tonight.

FLYER ALERT Wayne Ellington @ NO ($4500/$4360/$6700/$68k) With Ridnour and Rubio out, Ellington has received some touches the last three games. He has totaled 38pts, 11reb, 6ast and 3stls over those three games and has a decent match up.

FanDuel - Daily Fantasy Basketball Games

Gerald Henderson @ MIL ($6200/$9185/$10125/$100k) Henderson had a solid game last ngiht with 14pts, 8reb and 4ast but only on 4-13 shooting while picking up 5 fouls. The Bucks are beat up, he should fair well if he stays out of foul trouble.

Klay Thompson vs DEN ($6500/$8900/$9057/$81k) Putting up 23pts, 5reb, 1ast and 3slts last night against Utah, Thompson is still showing he’s a strong play. Good match up vs Denver in a game with a HUGE over/under (212), I’m starting him for this price.

JJ Hickson @ MIL ($5500/8175/$9629/$129k) Hickson has his ups and downs but he upside is big for this price. Gooden is out and the Bucks are a bit beat up overall, Hicks should be solid play.

Yes there still is basketball so let’s get to some picks for today’s eleven games.

$FanDuel/$DraftDay/$DraftStreet/$DailyJoust)

Gerald Green vs WAS ($5300/$8600/$9667/$108k) Green has a big upside and put up 20pts, 7reb, 2ast and 1slt in an otherwise tough match up against Portland on Wednesday. He should fair more than OK with Washington beat up a bit in the front court.

Donald Sloan @ TOR ($3800/$3150/$5164/$65k) With Kyrie Irving out, Sloan had 36 minutes on Wednesday in a tough match up vs MIL and put up 12pts, 1reb, and 8asts. Irving is probably going to be shut down for the season, Sloan is the guy to go to while he’s dirt cheap.

FanDuel - Daily Fantasy Basketball Games

Gerald Henderson @ MIL ($6200/$9185/$10125/$100k) With Augustin and Maggette banged up Henderson should see the ball a lot more. He was a common pick here earlier in the season and has been fairly steady in production. The injuries give him more value at this price.

Kevin Seraphin @ NJ ($5400/$6550/$9233/$126k) Nene and Booker are out. The match up is great, he’s been putting up near 20FBBpts or better and is undervalued, I’m starting him in every line up.

Jan Vesely @ NJ ($4700/$4050/$7452/$71k) Vesely has averaged 9.6pts, 6reb, 1.4ast with the occasional steal and block. Like Seraphin he will benefit again from Nene and Booker being sidelined. He’s certainly cheap enough to get in your lineups.

Quick note about baseball: I will be posting baseball picks here, just not quite yet. I need to study a bit more and let the MLB teams settle a bit. Right now baseball lineups will have extreme variance. The MLB teams are completely settled in even after Spring training. The rotations and lineups will get moved around a bunch these first few games. Loading of lineups (playing vs pitching matchups) for daily fantasy is the best strategy and I’ll explain more of this once I set up baseball here. I will also include a sidebar of resources as well.

Onto the NBA: just four games on the schedule tonight, it’s a night to avoid (and watch baseball, imo). C minus rating. Washington plays Detroit tonight and Scramento plays the Clippers but the Boston vs Chicago game should be low scoring, low scoring means low Fantasy production as well.

$FanDuel/$DraftDay/$DraftStreet/$DailyJoust)

Ben Gordon vs WAS ($5400/$7760/$11516/$128k) In his return from injury Gordon put up 18pts, 6reb, 7ast and 2stls vs Orlando. Stuckey should be out again tonight and Gordon has fantastic upside for the price.

Glen Davis vs NYK ($5600/$6110/$11465/$154k) Howard might play tonight but Ryan Anderson is out. This should give the start to Davis or at least more floor time. In Howard and Anderson’s absence Davis went nuts with 31pts, 10reb, 1blk and 3stls on Tuesday. If he gets half that production tonight, he’ll be value.

Kevin Seraphin ($5500/$6485/$8848/$90k) Seraphin was the one putting up a double double the other night with 19pts and 10reb, not Vesely. He should be out there again as there is no word of Nene’s return. Booker might step up and start ahead of Vesely. (BTW – Greg Monroe should have a HUGE game tonight.)

Well hopefully you got here at the last minute and was able get Glen Davis and his 31pts and 10reb game. Twelve games on the schedule tonight, fantastic action!

$FanDuel/$DraftDay/$DraftStreet/$DailyJoust)

Marco Belinelli vs DEN ($5800/$7650/$8003/$98k) Belinelli’s FG attempts have been on the rise and in the last five games he’s averaged 13 shots, making 6 or more. He has a big upside if he can get it going as he put up 27pts last Thursday vs Portland.

TWITTER UPDATE – Use Belinelli with extreme caution.

Jan Vesely vs IND ($4500/$3995/$7165/$82k) With Nene and Booker out Vesely is starting and putting up some decent numbers. He has 24pts, 11reb, 4ast, 1blk and 1stl over the last two games. Decent match up tonight, with this really cheap price, he should have great value.

Daily Joust has a new $50 daily freeroll, sign up for DailyJoust and get a 40% signup bonus up $400 – Click HERE!

Kevin Seraphin vs IND ($5300/$6485/$8848/$90k) Seraphin has been a steady and is another benefactor from Nene and Booker being out. He should fair well in his match up tonight, if I had to choose I’d take Vesely but most of my lineups will have both of them.

Byron Mullens @ ATL ($5500/$6900/$9774/$141k) Mullens was a frequent pick here early in the season. He was getting a lot of touches of the basketball and a lot of shots. His last two games have been flash backs to early January and has totaled 40pts, 23reb, 4blks, 2stls in those games. The match up is not the best but if Charlotte gets behind and they stick with Mullens getting the ball, he’ll put up the shots again for sure.

Zaza Pachulia vs ATL ($6000/$8175/$10826/$100k) Charlotte is not known for their defense, actually, they are known for much with 7 wins on the season. Zaza has been quite but the Hawks should get up big and Zaza will get the minutes to translate into great value.

Picks were great yesterday for their prices. You should have been able to get in Kobe and Love to carry your teams. Just six games on the schedule, should be good match ups, B plus rating.

As many of you know, I’m a Boston homar. Check out Bradley on DWade here (yes, Battier hit the three but the Celtics still rocked the Heat with great D in the win.)

$FanDuel/$DraftDay/$DraftStreet/$DailyJoust)

Luke Ridnour @ SAC ($6300/$10310/$10849/$131k) Ridnour put up 21pts, 4reb, 6ast, 1blk and 3stls vs Portland on Sunday and has been really steady as of late as the Wolves are a bit beat up.

Isaiah Thomas vs MIN ($6400/$8415/$11910/$130k) I dont like him as much as Ridnour but Thomas has great upside and game should be a guard shoot out tonight.

JJ Hickson vs UTA ($5100/$5575/$9489/$114k) Even with Aldridge playing, Hickson got the start over an injured Joel Przybilla, which should happen again. Hickson put up 15pts, 9reb, and 1blk, match up is good, price is great.

Kevin Seraphin vs MIL ($4900/$6400/$8929/$92k) Nene was spotted in a walking boot on Sunday and is technically listed as day to day, but that doesnt take away from what Seraphin has been doing. In Nene’s absence, Seraphin put up 16pts, 7reb, 2ast and 1slt, ride with him again.

Eight games for Sunday, should be a good day.

$FanDuel/$DraftDay/$DraftStreet/$DailyJoust)

Jared Dudley vs NO ($6100/$9540/$8761/$81k) Dudley has actually been kinda quiet recently but I’m putting him up here as Grant Hill is out so Dudley sure to get minutes and the entire lineup for New Orleans is decimated. Eric Gordon, Gustavo Ayon, Carl Landry, Trevor Ariza, Emeka Okafor and Chris Kaman should all be on the sideline and Phoenix should run wild.

Wesley Matthews vs MIN ($6100/$9405/$10463/$111k) Aldridge is listed a doubtful tomorrow and this should distribute the basketball a bit. Mathews has been steady and has a good upside.

Kevin Seraphin @ TOR ($4900/$6400/$8929/$87k) Nene is listed as doubtful tomorrow and the match up is fantastic vs Toronto, look for Seraphin to come through for sure.

J.J. Hickson vs MIN ($4900/$5265/$9489/$125k) Starting for Aldridge on Friday Hickson went off for 29pts, 13reb and 2ast. I dont expect that to happend again but if he put up half of it, he’d be value at the price.

FYLER ALERT Charles Jenkins @ LAL ($4000/$7175/$6938/$111k) Jenkins got the start on Friday night and came through, putting up 18pts, 12ast, 2reb and 2slts in 37 minutes. Against the very same Lakers on Tuesday, he put up 12pts, 1reb, 3asts and 1stl in limited minutes (26m).

If you filtered in some of the picks yesterday with DWill, JSmith, KLove, Joe Johnson (wow the Knicks cannot play D), and Paul Pierce, you should have won. I missed on Melo last night, I thought JSmith would hold him down but he went off. (BTW Melo is on the injury report today, groin.)

BTW I fully expect DWill to go off again tonight:

$FanDuel/$DraftDay/$DraftStreet/$DailyJoust)

Isaiah Thomas vs NJ ($6400/$8370/$11885/$126000) Fantastic match up in what should be the high scoring game of the day. He’s been steady and came through last night, I have him in there again tonight.

Alec Burks @ LAC ($4800/$4365/$7000/$85k) Burks did get the minutes last night (34) and put up 15pts, 4reb, 1ast and 2slts. He has been quietly rising in the ranks for Utah and should be out there again tonight. He’s dirt cheap and worth getting in there so you can put in your studs.

Brandon Knight vs CHA ($5900/$8670/$8838/$94k) With Stuckey and Ben Gordon out, Knight received more touches which has converted to 32pts, 4reb, 6ast, 2blks and 1stl in the last two games. Charlotte offers the best match up out there for point guards, I’m rolling with him.

Gordon Hayward @ LAC ($6000/$8350/$10847/$139k) Hayward has been shooting well and has averaged 15.8pts, 5.6reb, 4.2ast, 1.6blks and 1.0stls over his last five games. Decent match up tonight in what should be a high scoring game.

Austin Daye vs CHA ($4500/$3855/$6617/$82k) Another benefactor to the beat up backcourt of the Pistions, Daye put up 11pts, 2reb, 1ast, 2blks and 3stls last night but the big number is shot attempts, 14FG attempts. Lets hope he makes more than five of those tonight, he should get the shots again.

Not terrible picks last night but not great either. Landry was huge for his price.

$FanDuel/$DraftDay/$DraftStreet/$DailyJoust)

Isaiah Thomas @ UTA ($6300/$8370/$11885/$124k) Notice that Thomas’ price on DraftStreet and DailyJoust has started to catch up with his performance. He put up 28pts, 4reb, 10ast and 1slt on Wednesday vs San Antonio. Good match up against Utah in what should be the highest scoring game of the night. (Whopping 214 Over/Under!)

Iman Shumpert @ ATL ($5400/$7830/$8505/$115k) Lin is out and Shumpert was the value pick before the Linsanity craze started. He’s getting his chance to shine again and put up 25pts, 7reb, 4ast and 1slt vs Orlando on Wednesday. The match up is not the best and I nearly didnt put him up but he should have the ball enough to show value for his cheap price.

Klay Thompson vs NJ ($6100/$8885/$9953/$117k) He’s averaged 18.0pts, 2.4reb, 3.4ast and 1.2stls over the last five games. His minutes were down a bit vs New Orleans but Golden State was trailing big late in the game so he may have been rested. The match up is decent and he’s proved his worth. I’m still rolling with him.

FanDuel - Daily Fantasy Basketball Games

FLYER ALERT Austin Daye @ CHI ($4400/$3855/$6617/$65k) Ben Gordon and Stuckey are out tonight. While it’s not the greatest match up vs Chicago, Rose is a least out again. Daye had 29 minutes on Wednesday when Stuckey went down and put up a small line of 8pts, 2reb, 2ast, 2blks and 2stls.

Jason Thompson @ UTA ($6200/$7975/$13807/$152k) Thompson went down with an ankle injury last week and came back on Wednesday. He was on fire before the injury and came right back with a 15pt, 7reb, 2ast, 3blks and 3slt performance. He still pretty cheap on most sites and has a fantastic match up tonight.

Tristan Thompson vs MIL ($5400/$6740/$9128/$100k) The guy with all the upside is back in my picks. He has a fantastic match up and when he’s not pushing his upside he’s good for 20FBBpts, lets hope he pushes 40FBBpts tonight.

Just four games on the schedule. Sorry I’ve been late the last few days, the picks have been fair. If you are wondering if baseball will be feature, the answer is, YES. I have much more experience with fantasy baseball than basketball honestly.

$FanDuel/$DraftDay/$DraftStreet/$DailyJoust)

Jordan Crawford @ IND ($6500/$10280/$10146/$136k) Crawford has been shooting well, really well, nearly 50% in his last five games while averaging over 20pts, 3.0 rebs, 2.8ast and 2.2stls in that span. Great match up for him, easy value.

Wesley Mattthews vs NO ($6100/$9360/$10273/$133k) I’m finally coming around to Matthews who has been value for a over almost two weeks now. He has 11 shot attempts or better in his last seven games. Fantastic match up, he should come through tonight.

Carl Landry @ POR ($5700/$7390/$8848/$112k) Landry has stepped up with a heavily injured New Orleans team averaging 16.3pts, 7.7reb, 1.0ast over his last three games.

Kevin Seraphin @ IND ($5000/$6315/$9051/$75k) Seraphin started along side Nene on Monday and had 12pts, 5reb and 1blk while he was in foul trouble. It’s pretty clear Washington likes him and if he can stay out of foul trouble he should come through tonight.
