Daily Fantasy Basketball Diagnosis: 2/8

Monta Ellis

Monta Ellis

Beast of the Night: Monta Ellis was huge last night, finishing with 48 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and three three-pointers. He shot 62 percent (18-29) from the field, 90 percent (9-10) from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. Ellis is having himself another fine season, despite a rough patch late in January. He’s a top 40 fantasy asset so far this NBA season.

Lines for Discussion:

Darren Collison: 10-14 FG (71%), 4-4 FT (100%), 1 three, 25 Pts, 4 Reb, 5 Ast; Since George Hill went down, Collison has been getting 35+ minutes a night and averaging 17/5/5. Collison’s owners should think about selling high.

Jared Dudley: 7-9 FG (78%), 2-2 FT (100%), 3 threes, 19 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast; His owners have to be breathing a sigh of relief that his thigh injury wasn’t serious. Dudley appears to be on track to recover some of that value he lost earlier this season.

Brandon Jennings: 1-4 FG (25%), 1 three, 3 Pts, 5 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Blk, 1 TO; Jennings has accumulated just 11 points, seven rebounds, nine assists and one three-pointer in his last two outings. He’ll bounce back, but his magical run is kaput.

Michael Beasley: 7-21 FG (33%), 2-3 FT (67%), 1 three, 17 Pts, 14 Reb, 3 TO; He continues to be an overrated fantasy asset, especially given his poor accuracy from the field.

    Who do you prefer the rest of the way, Frye or Pekovic?

  • BChaulz

    I slept on Lin and Greivis, so I’m considering picking up Kleiza and dropping Luke Ridnour. Good idea?

    Also, who got the better of this deal:
    Morrow & Kemba traded for Ray Allen and Manu.


  • Jerry

    I have to make bench one of my players on Friday. Who would you bench in a H2H league?

    Ray Allen @TOR
    Paul Pierce @TOR
    Josh Smith @ORL
    Drew Gooden @CLE
    Dirk @MIN
    Pekovic v. Dallas @MIN
    Boozer @CHA

  • K Dizzle

    Traded Michael Beasley to get Monta 3 days ago LOL

  • G

    Pick 2 to keep and 2 to drop:

    CJ Miles, Zaza, Afflalo, Fernandez

    Also, who do you think I could get for Darren Collison?

  • juanpronin

    What to do with Hawes? Drop or keep him? Best bigs available Kaman and Ilyasova

    @Mr. Injury: Frye, because of his threes. But it’s close.

    @BChaulz: I’m fine with that swap. I like the Allen/Manu side much better.

    @Jerry: Probably Pekovic, since Love will be back by then.

    @K Dizzle: Steal of the season. That other owner got pwned.

    @G: Keep Miles and Fernandez. For Collison, maybe someone like J-Rich, Hibbert, Wes Matthews, Gortat, Ibaka…

    What do you think of Jameer Nelson?

  • G

    My Bosh & Darren Collison for his Ibaka & Joe Johnson. What do you(anyone, not just Doc) think?

  • control


    I was going to veto that trade, but then realized I’m not Stern, haha. How did he agree to that, didn’t you just pick Beas off the FA pool a week ago?

  • juanronin

    Spencer Hawes? Drop or keep?
    The finest big men available in my league are Kaman and Ilyasova

  • Z

    Hey Doc, with the chauncey billups injury, who would be a better fantasy option for the rest of the season, randy foye or luke ridnour?

  • John

    Harrington or Frye?
