DraftStreet Fantasy Spin: Sunday, April 6, 2014

So Kyrie Irving scored 44 points last night. If you claim you knew that you’re a hardcore Cleveland Cavs fan or a bald-face liar. This rarely happens, but the NBA was put on the back burner and even the league knew that. Not one exciting matchup in the association, I guess the league knew best when they assumed the entire basketball world was glued to the Final Four. For the record, I called Kentucky to win. Now, on to fantasy. If

DraftStreet Fantasy Spin: Saturday, April 5, 2014

DeMarcus Cousins and the Sacramento Kings somehow only managed to score 69 points against a battered Golden State Warriors team Friday. Andrew Bogut, David Lee and Festus Ezeli were all out and the Kings didn’t bother to attack the rim. I had Cousins on my DraftStreet fantasy team, he had 19 points and 11 rebounds. Maybe Sacramento was just anxious for Rudy Gay, who is currently anticipation the birth of his first child. But no one on the Kings

I hate crowing to the world wide web, but I told you so. Yesterday I predicted the Oklahoma City Thunder would snap the San Antonio Spurs 19-game winning streak, lo and behold they did. Maybe Tony Parker is to blame for the loss, he’s surely who I’m blaming on my DraftStreet fantasy team. Last night I picked up the Spurs PG for only $10,938 and now I know why. Here’s his dreadful stat line: six points, four rebounds, three assists

DraftStreet Fantasy Spin: Thursday, April 3, 2014

At one point last night I thought I would win $1,000 in DraftStreet’s NBA Fantasy League. That didn’t happen for several reasons. Anthony Davis, my most expensive player, left the game early with back spasms. Arron Afflalo couldn’t put the ball in the ocean while playing against the measly defense of the Cleveland Cavs. Besides that, all of my other picks performed well. Today I quickly threw a roster together and will probably make tweaks throughout the day. I contemplated

Paul Pierce killed my DraftStreet.com fantasy team last night. Just when I thought I found someone special for cheap ($11,277) he turns his play around and stabbed me in the back. But I’m a sucker for punishment and I’m using PP again tonight. Last night at DraftStreet I fared pretty well but didn’t make any money. I was in the top 20% in a few of my pools and if Pierce would’ve showed up I probably would have won some

Last night I played in several leagues and came up empty. For some reason I put my faith in Greg Stiemsma (never again) and he didn’t even grab a rebound. Joakim Noah and LeBron James did well for me, gathering over 80 fantasy points between them. I bought Reggie Evans from Sacramento for only $6,998 and he did work. With 12 rebounds he ended up being one of my more successful players from Monday. To begin the month of April
