We Talk Fantasy Sports:
Fanthrowdown has an NBA freeroll Monday afternoon, so you can’t find a better time to try out the new daily fantasy website. We love the games going on today, and really who doesn’t love multiple games on national television all day long? There are some very good matchups to love, and we will be playing these five players just about everywhere as we love their price.John Wall has been an absolute stud since he got back from his injury. He has put up three straight games of 28 fantasy points or more and has gone as high as 38 fantasy which was his last game. His matchup is favorable going against the rookie Lillard, and should see plenty of minutes.Paul George is an obvious pick here, and on sites like FTD and Draftkings it won’t break the bank to put him on your team. His matchup is average going up against the Grizzlies and with it being on the road. He went for 61 points in his last game, and has gone for over 34 in each of his last five games. Five games ago, he went for 57 fantasy points. That’s big time production out of a high priced game, so we’ll condone spending the money on him.Greivis Vasquez should do big things going up against the Kings Monday afternoon. The Kings are one of those teams that we love picking against. Add in the fact that Vasquez is playing very well this season and he’s a consistent mid 30s fantasy player. We have seen him go for 34 fantasy points or more in 7 of his last 10 games. This kind of consistency is what allows us to pick him and not worry about a bad night.Devin Harris is going to see our lineup on Fanthrowdown for a while if his price stays below $5,000. He’s going to see an increase in minutes with the new that Lou Williams is out for the season. His production has been inconsistent, but we have seen him go for 42 points in his last six games, and has also had nights of 29 and 36 points. When he gets minutes he produces very well for his price. We expect him to get those minutes more often now.LaMarcus Aldridge has been consistently great in his last ten games as he has put up over 30 fantasy points in eight of those games. This Wizards matchup is one he should do very well against seeing as he’ll be up against guys like Nene and Emeka Okafor most of the night. We’ll take him every night with matchups like that.
BEST OF MAXIM
Even without John Wall earlier this season, the Washington Wizards found a way to defeat the Portland Trail Blazers and end their franchise-worst start.
Now that Wall's back, the league-worst Wizards are looking to extend the Blazers' season-high losing streak to six when these teams meet on Monday night in Portland.
Losers of 12 straight to open the season, Washington...
Damian Lillard is having an incredible rookie season, and on Monday night against the Wizards he continued the trend. The 6′ 3″ point guard out of Weber State drove the ball to the hole late in the fourth quarter and proceeded to put John Wall and Nene on one single poster. Just nasty.
