NBA | Must-Haves | 1/17/17

Will Barton (DK $5,600 FD $4,800): The first must have tonight is the Denver Nuggets’ guard Will “The Thrill” Barton. Before diving into his matchup, we believe we must address the Vegas lines for Denver’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. Although the line opened at 227, it is now sitting at a massive 230, with Denver sitting as just a 1 point favorite. The highest over/under and tightest…

NHL | Must-Haves | 1/17/17

Tyler Bozak (DK: $4,800 FD: $5,500): Tonight, the Maple Leafs welcome the Buffalo Sabres into Toronto, in what should be a high scoring affair. As of the now, Vegas currently list the Maple Leafs as massive favorites; with an over/under of 5.5, we should see plenty of pucks finding the back of the net. Bozak will be centering the team’s top line alongside linemates James Van Riemsdyk and Mitch Marner,…

NBA | Must-Haves | 1/16/17

Enes Kanter (DK: $6,100 FD: $6,200):  Steven Adams has officially been ruled out, and now Kanter has a golden opportunity to make a significant splash—at least for Monday night. The big man always has high usage, but minutes have generally been his Achilles heel to present upside on a day-to-day basis, without throwing a total dart by rostering him. In his two games without Adams last season, Kanter averaged 27.3…

NHL | Must-Haves | 1/15/17

Ryan Kesler (DK: $6,900 FD: $7,200): Kesler’s Ducks are hosting the Blues tonight, on a 3-game slate that doesn’t feature any real sizeable mismatches. One spot worth taking advantage of, however, is Anaheim’s power play. The Ducks rank 9th overall on the man advantage, and at home, they’re even better, converting at 24.6% at the Honda Center. St. Louis has fairly decent overall numbers on the penalty kill, but they…

MMA | Must-Haves | 1/15/17

Yair Rodriguez (DK: $9,200): We typically don’t like to recommend the highest priced fighter on UFC cards, however, Yair Rodriguez is a “value” at his $9,200 price tag. Rodriguez is a fast fighter that has explosive strikes and loves to attack from various angles. BJ Penn comes into this fight off a two-and-a-half year retirement and has not had his hand raised in a fight in nearly seven years. Supposedly,…
