Monday, October 23rd

Point Guard

Mike James vs Sacramento Kings: $10
Tyler Ulis vs Sacramento Kings: $11
Dennis Smith vs Golden State Warriors: $23

A lot has happened in a week for the terrible Suns as they have been blown out twice, lost to the Lakers at home then fired their coach and have their best player demanding out in Bledsoe. They have already said Bledsoe won’t play tonight and with the team in shambles I am not sure who will take over the lead guard role but I sure hope it is Ulis because he has proven to be a very nice DFS option when he is given clock.

About the Author

  • Tony Niehaus (BigT44)

  • In December of 2014, Tony “BigT44” Niehaus gave up his job of running a poker room after ten years in the industry. After playing part time and proving he could win consistently, it seemed like the right decision because of a lifelong love of sports and fantasy sports in general. It certainly looks like the right decision, considering BigT44 has climbed into the Top 100 of the RG Overall Rankings (Top 10 in the Heavyweight Division). He has over a million dollars in winnings and has qualified for four live finals, with a pair of Top 10 showings. You can find him on Twitter at BigT44DFS.
