With the transfer window closed and players locked into their clubs (new or old) for the rest of the season, February becomes the month where most questions are answered.  Tuesday was a perfect example of this as Liverpool continued to struggle whilst Leicester and Jamie Vardy continued their cocky strut to the top of the table.  It will be an interesting month, and DraftKings has a very fun $12000 striker tournament to spice up the action just a little bit more.

Forwards:

Harry Kane ($8200):  I hate repeating players on a regular basis, but the England international is way too good to pass up on now.  With an easy matchup against Watford I expect SuperKane to get on the scoresheet once again.

Steven Naismith ($4000): So far Naismith has flourished for Norwich and that should continue on Saturday against a very shaky Villa backline.  The former Everton man puts 100% into every match and can provide crosses, assists, goals and interceptions and really rack up the points.

Midfielders:

Christian Eriksen ($7400): I love choosing players that get to take free kicks (or in Eriksen’s case can score them with ease) and corners.  These dead ball specialists allow for plenty of points off of crosses and shots.  I love the matchup for the Dane and it should produce plenty of points.

Wilfired Zaha ($5000): The former Man United youth player has played well all season long.  I have been waiting for a breakout matchup from the twinkle toed winger but thus far have been left wanting more.  However a matchup against a less than stellar Swansea team should allow Crystal Palace to get free on the wings and provide plenty of chances for Zaha.

James Ward-Prowse ($4000): Read what I just wrote about Christian Eriksen, Ward-Prowse will get plenty of action on free kicks and the match verse West Ham should be wide open and feature goals.

Defenders:

Leandro Bacuna ($3600): Bacuna is yet another player that gets to stand over free kicks.  With rampaging runs down the wings and free kick duties as well as an easier matchup against Norwich, Bacuna should produce points at a nice price point.

Nathaniel Clyne ($3500): Clyne hasn’t really benefited from much of Liverpool’s build up play as that has been focused down the left hand side with Alberto Moreno ($4500).  However, being a Liverpool fan, I have watched most of their matches this season, and Clyne has more quality in build up play.  With a matchup against Sunderland, I expect LFC to come out attacking and Clyne to be heavily involved.

Goalkeeper:

Jack Butland ($3600): Butland is the future of England, and has been great so far this season, in a contest that should be a wide open affair, there should be plenty of shots that need stopping.  I don’t expect a clean sheet, but a bunch of saves is definitely in the cards.

After a soft slate of games on a TNT Thursday, Friday brings up 10 games with some tasty matchups.  There are some potential playoff matchups and certainly some tasty DFS plays to be had on a busy Friday.

Can’t Miss:

Rajon Rondo ($8200) After being a game time decision on Wednesday, Rondo came out and put up a dud fantasy wise.  I don’t see that being an issue on Friday night against the Nets who are just awful defensing the PG position.

Paul George ($8400) This is one of the potential playoff matchups, and George certainly has a good matchup at the SF position against the Hawks.  George got off to a very hot start at the beginning of the season but has come back down to earth recently.  This is a matchup that I expect to produce points and can see George hitting that hallowed 50 fantasy point mark.

Pau Gasol ($8700) Gasol has continued to produce this season for the Bulls and is a player that doesn’t put up too many duds.  With a nice matchup against the Nuggets I see Gasol going off for one of those big games of his hitting the 50 point mark with relative ease.

High Risk:

Danny Green ($4600) Green is a player whose value is predicated on the three ball.  In recent games Green has picked up his shooting and a hot shooter is always a good option.  With a game against the Mavs promising to produce points I am certainly trusting Green on Friday.

Marco Belinelli ($4500) A former Spurs sharp shooter joins Green on my High Risk plays for Friday.  Belinelli is a player that thrives when given the opportunity to take plenty of shots.  That should be exactly what happens against Brooklyn and I think that Marco will thrive.

Fillers:

Zach Randolph ($5900) Going up against a former team Z-Bo has a great matchup against Kristaps Porzingis ($6700).  Randolph should absolutely body the young Knick forward and dominate the glass and rack up points.

Bradley Beal ($6100) Beal has hit a price point that I love after struggling with injuries.  John Wall ($9700) has got to be tired of trying to carry this Wizards team, and will be happy to pass the ball off to Beal in this cushy matchup with the 76ers.

Tristan Thompson ($5200) I am going back with Thompson again after a miserable performance against Charlotte. Boston is soft on the interior so I am riding the double T again on Friday night.

Enjoy the fun matchups and happy balling.

So here we are winding our way down the All Star break with the Cavs suddenly looking dangerous, the Warriors still on top of the world, and suddenly the Spurs looking vulnerable.  I hope that Tim Duncan can get healthy shortly and the race for the best team in the West can get back on track.

Games to Target

Detroit vs. Boston (o/u 207.5)

Orlando vs. OKC (o/u 212)

Chicago vs. Sacramento (o/u 212)

Can’t Miss

Russell Westbrook ($11000): I don’t really have enough accolades for Russ at this point.  With easily the highest floor of any NBA player and the highest ceiling as well Westbrook has been a monster in DFS all season.  In order to get to that valued 6 times return on investment the Thunder guard will have to score 66 fantasy points tonight, against a Magic defense that ranks 26th against opposing point guards I can see Russ hitting that mark tonight.

Chris Bosh ($7700): Bosh has had a couple of down games recently (25.8 and 30.3 fantasy points), but against a Dallas team that is very bad against opposing Power Forwards I look for him to get up towards 40 fantasy points tonight.  Dirk ($6100) is not mobile enough to keep up with Bosh on the boards or on defense which will lead to a big game tonight.

Monta Ellis ($6900): Monta was never a name I expected to write in this area of my column but after a very strong January I am definitely buying in.  Ellis is the Pacers leading scorer and faces a Nets team that is definitely lacking defensively.  This should lead to a big game and hopefully Brooklyn keeps it close enough for an even bigger game.

High Risk

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist ($4500): The matchup against the Cavs is pretty bad for MKG, however the price point is what sells me.  I will continue buying into Gilchrist until the forward moves up in the price range, after 2 games MKG is averaging 32.4 fantasy points.  If he can break 20 tonight I’ll be pleased.

Kelly Olynyk ($4800): Olynyk is known to go off in games with the ability to score 40+ fantasy points and even sniff 50.  Tonight’s matchup with Detroit isn’t the easiest of matchups, but with the spacing Kelly provides and ability to drive to the basket I love Olynyk tonight.

Fillers

Derrick Rose ($6000): Rose clearly is no longer at MVP levels, nor is the former Wildcat even the Bulls first choice, however, Sacramento is not a good team defensively.  The Bulls will feel a little hard done by after their OT loss to the Jazz and Rose will have a point to prove after a premature celebration.

Tristan Thompson ($5400): Talk about a weird season.  Thompson has been on and off the bench for the Cavs and seems to have finally found a groove.  Playing against Charlotte tonight who are genuinely lacking for big bodies, Thompson should feast on boards, especially the offensive ones.

Enjoy a big slate of games tonight, and happy balling.

DraftKings PGA Picks for the Phoenix Open (Lawr) PDF Print E-mail

Welcome to the Mastersball PGA DFS adventure, for those among us who are also somehow enamored with the links.

If you have followed me here for the last year, you might know that I returned to the game of golf just a year ago, after a 41-year layoff. I played pretty regularly as a teenager, then quit due to a fight between my brother and his friend. And, now, I play three-to-four times a week, weather permitting in Northern California.

I can tell you my handicap dropped from around 33 a year ago, to 23.7 at present, which means if you are a hacker, we are brethren.

Anyway, the weekly PGA DFS contests at DraftKings make a nice forum to learn the tactics of fantasy golf, share the grief of a duff and the joy of a 250-yard drive right down the middle.

Do check out the Mastersball Deal and the link below, and then you can challenge the other Mastersballers and me!

Ok, so what about the Waste Management Open, in Phoenix this weekend? Well, ideally the tourney will be bereft of the crazy winds and rains that invaded Torrey Pines last weekend.

I will tell you that I went very conservative, grabbing players in price zones who had thus far done well in making the cut for their tourneys. That meant I largely shied from Bubba Watson and Zach Johnson, though I love both guys.

As for picks, and logic:

Phil Mickelson ($10,600): The high priced spread, Mickelson has delivered 81.8 points over two tourneys thus far. He got killed at the Farmers with a second-round 76, his worst score ever. Nowhere to go but up. I am willing to gamble.

J.J. Henry ($5900): A low-priced gambit, Henry played pretty well at Torrey Pines before the Sunday weather handed him an 80. Five-for-five making the cut.

James Hahn ($6400): Another lower priced selection, Hahn has made the cut five of five times thus far, and has one top ten finish.

C. Howell III ($8200): Six straight top 25 finishes for Howell, who is eight-for-eight on the tour since the start of 2015.

Kevin Kisner ($10,400): Six-for-six on the tour, with four top ten finishes. 

Billy Horschel ($7900): Horschel tied for eighth in La Jolla and has two strong finishes. I mean, we are all learning.

Don't forget you can follow me @lawrmichaels.

What a week we've had leading up to the All-Star Break! The NBA has so much parity and drama that on any given night, any team is likely to pull out a win. This season has been wrought with upstarts, rookies and overperformers. The East is a one-trick pony, and the West features two historic teams. Going into Saturday, we have plenty of storylines and a plethora of fantasy studs.

Can't Miss

John Wall ($9400): The former Kentucky Wildcat is truly a star. The Wizards have dealt with plenty of injuries and Wall has done his best to keep the franchise afloat. A matchup against the defensively woeful Rockets is just what the doctor ordered. Wall is a must-start tonight.

LaMarcus Aldridge ($7200): This is more of a gut pick. After being humiliated by the Warriors, I expect the Spurs,and the oft criticized Aldridge to come out swinging. The Cavs aren't an easy matchup, but the former Blazer has the size and moves on Kevin Love ($7100), which should lead to a big game.

High Risk

Courtney Lee ($4000): A player predicated on the 3-ball, Lee has a soft matchup. This could lead to plenty of kick outs from the post and a bunch of spot up looks against the less than average Kings defense. I love Lee as a cheap points-based player.

C.J. Miles ($4400): This is dependant on a blowout. Denver is a bad team, and Indiana is looking to secure a playoff spot. In a game like this, I love high usage bench players such as Miles.

Fillers

Omer Asik ($3409): Normally a higher risk, Asik has a great matchup against the Nets and should dominate the boards. I love low-scoring players that can rack up fantasy points, and given the matchup, Asik fits the bill.

Will Barton ($5900): Barton is a scorer in what appears to be a matchup that should produce points. Despite Denver's struggles this season, they have kept games close enough to rely on starters. In a game that produces fireworks, I expect Barton to go off.

Enjoy your weekend, and happy balling.
