Ok folks, so we are in the final weeks of the NFL season, and everyone's final chance to really take advantage of the DFS season. You may have already won your money and are just playing for a bit of fun, or maybe you're looking for a big holiday bump. Whatever your needs are, I am here to help with a slightly longer rundown of this week's games and who to start. I will go through position by position and point out my starts and my sits.

My criteria for picking a player are:

Matchup

Recent performance

Owned Percentage (last week I would rather have started Blake Bortles than Cam Newton not just for the 7 extra points but also since Bortles wasn't owned by as many people, therefore giving me a leg up)

Price

Reliability (When picking a lower priced player, it is best to stick to somebody that you know will at least get you something as opposed to hit and miss options)

Quarterbacks

Starts of the Week:

Matthew Stafford ($6400): Once again I am riding the play any QB against the Saints train. Stafford has had a collection of massive weeks mixed in with some pretty poor performances. However, the price is certainly right as is the matchup for Stafford to headline your team this week.

Blake Bortles ($8100): Bortles has gone over 20 fantasy points eight times this season with over 30 points three times. The Falcons have slipped off the face of the earth since their unbeaten start and the Jaguars need a win to stay in playoff contention. Jacksonville will lean heavily on their second-year QB to lead them to victory and so should you.

Sleeper of the Week:

Philip Rivers ($6000): Rivers has really fallen off since a great start to the season. Much of that is due to an ineffective ground game and all his targets getting injured. However, for a low cost and low play percentage this week, Rivers faces off against the Dolphins, who just allowed Eli Manning ($7200) to throw for 337 yards and 4 TDs. If you need a cheap option, Rivers is your man.

Dud of the Week:

Aaron Rodgers ($8400): With only one game over 30 fantasy points this season, Rodgers has been a big fantasy disappointment. This week, the Pack faces off against Raider nation, and more specifically Khalil Mack coming off a five-sack performance. I expect Rodgers to still rack up some points, but look for the gunslinger to be on the move a lot without ever really getting into a rhythm.

Running Backs

Starts of the Week:

Adrian Peterson ($8100): It has been a tough couple of weeks for the Vikings, who really need to get back on track at this point. In order to get back on track, Minnesota must put the rock in the hands of their best player. AP should get a ton of touches against a poor Bears run defense. Look for a game more along the lines of his Atlanta performance, when All Day rushed for 158 yards and 2 TDs.

Denard Robinson ($3300): Robinson faces off against the terrible Atlanta run defense in fill-in duty for T.J. Yeldon and is a great double up if you have Bortles already. This game shouldn't really be close and Robinson will have ample opportunity to both run the ball and catch it out of the backfield for a big fantasy day.

Sleeper of the Week:

Brandon Bolden ($2900): With the injury to LeGarrette Blount, the Patriots need to rely on somebody else to tote the rock against the Titans. Bolden is in line for a big step up in terms of carries, and against the soft Titans front 7, he should be able to produce enough to make him worth a look.

Dud of the Week:

DeAngelo Williams ($7700): Williams has been a revelation for both the Steelers and for fantasy owners this season. However, this week's matchup against the vaunted Broncos defense and lack of practice due to illness isn't a good sign for the former Panther.

Wide Receivers

Starts of the Week:

DeAndre Hopkins ($8800): This is a guy who has really come into his own this year. Hopkins has won me plenty of games in both DFS and standard fantasy formats so far this year, and a matchup against the Colts in a game with playoff implications should only serve to pad DeAndre's stats. Look at what Antonio Brown ($8800) did two weeks ago against Indy as a possible stat line for Hopkins this weekend.

Jeremy Maclin ($6800): The thing I like most about Maclin is that even if the receiver doesn't put up the TD numbers, he is always going to rack up receptions. Against the Ravens, that shouldn't change. Look for Maclin to get on the board early and often before the Chiefs turn to the run game.

Sleeper of the Week:

John Brown ($5100) and Michael Floyd ($6300): This is cheating as that is two sleepers, not one. But I can see this game being a shootout type of contest. With that being said, Philly's defense has been less than stellar and while the secondary will focus its attention on Larry Fitzgerald ($7900), these two wideouts can get free for big games.

Dud of the Week:

Odell Beckham Jr. ($8700): My friends have been killing me all week for saying this. However, the Panthers defense legitimately scares me. Josh Norman has been amazing, and I just don't have enough faith in Eli to consistently deliver the ball to OBJ. This could bite me in the rear in a big way, but I haven't picked OBJ in a single DFS league this week.

Tight Ends

Starts of the Week:

Ben Watson ($3500): Watson has been very consistent all season with a couple of absolutely monster games (Weeks 6 and 8). This week going up against the Lions in what should be yet another New Orleans style shootout, look for Watson to benefit from Drew Brees throwing a lot and possibly replicate similar stat lines to both his big weeks.

Antonio Gates ($7300): The price is a little steep for what I like to pay for my TEs. However, with a soft matchup against the Dolphins, Gates has the opportunity to go off. I love the matchup, and in the past whenever Philip Rivers has needed to right the ship, he looks Gates' way often. Look for that to be the case on Sunday.

Sleeper of the Week:

Eric Ebron ($4000): Ebron started the year hot but since then has really fallen off in a big way. It has been seven weeks since the Tight End went off for 19.9 points, but I see him as one of the bigger benficiaries of the matchup against the Saints this week.

Bust of the Week:

Delanie Walker ($7500): Walker has been very good so far this season and has helped Marcus Mariota ($6300) immensely. However, this New England defense is crafty and I don't see the Titans scoring much.

D/ST

Start of the Week:

Texans ($2400): Indy has been struggling mightily on the offensive side of the ball and even if Andrew Luck ($7600) comes back this week, that shouldn't stop J.J. Watt and this Texans defense from feasting.

Dud of the Week:

Broncos ($3300): The Broncos defense has been playing at an incredibly high level all season, but they are running into Big Ben and the Steelers at exactly the wrong time. I don't see the Steelers slowing down in any massive way, and with little offensive support, the Broncos defense will be asked to do a lot, probably too much.

I hope this helps going into the third to last week of the NFL season. Take advantage of the opportunities before it's too late and Happy Holidays to all!

This NBA season has been one filler with a couple of frontrunners, incomplete teams, and a lot of mediocrity.  Playoff teams from last year, aren't performing at the same level, and some of their players are getting dragged down with their teams poor performances.  That said, there are some solid performances from players that have been pleasant surprises and these players can certainly be relied on for all your DFS needs.

Can't Miss:

Eric Bledsoe ($8600) Bledsoe has been superb all season and the Pelicans have been awful on defense all season.  Going up against a team with the 29th ranked opponents PPG and 3 pt percentage defense will allow Bledsoe to really flourish tonight.

Pau Gasol ($8100) Pau has been on a tear recently going over 30 fantasy points in nine of the past ten games with a high of 60.75.  The Spaniard's resurgence with the Bulls this season is going swimmingly and with a matchup against the Pistons looming Gasol will once again be a focal point.

Marc Gasol ($7400) I am doubling down on the brothers for tonight's games as I love the way Marc has played in December.  The Dallas frontcourt has played well above expectations, but Gasol is a different breed with the ability to really stretch them out and then brun them down low.  Without Zach Randolph ($6300) in the starting lineup the honus is on the Spaniard to produce in a big way.

High Risk:

Jae Crowder ($4200) Crowder's performances all year have been solid but not spectacular, as is the case with most Celtics' players.  Going into tonights matchup against the Hawks, Boston could use a big game from Crowder who had his first non double digit scoring output since November 25th.

Rodney Stuckey ($3700) Stuckey is a guy I target in many of my leagues on a regular basis.  The Pacers really don't have much in the way of scoring off their bench, so the second unit is reliant on Stuckey to score most of their points.  With an easy matchup against the Nets tonight look for the Pacers' guard to score in bunches.

Fillers:

Goran Dragic ($4600) Dragic has been a big dissapointment compared to the money given to him.  However the Slovenian is still producing assists and has the offensive arsenal to do some damage.  Dragic is always one of those low risk with potentially massive rewards players and tonight against the high flying Raptors Goran will have plenty of opportunity to score or dish to others.

Omri Casspi ($3700) Caspri is a hot cold player who is running hot right now.  On a night when the Kings get to face the Timberwolves I don't expect that hot streak to end.

Alright folks, I had a bit of a busy week last week, but I will get back to providing you with more regular NBA coverage this week. So let's put together some solid lineups to help you win some money and make the holiday season more affordable.

Tonight in the NBA, we have a full slate with 12 games on tap and some nice matchups to watch and some matchups that just wreak of fantasy booms.

Can't Miss

Russell Westbrook ($9900): Is there a better player on the planet in terms of fantasy value right now? In a word, no, nobody is even really that close with Stephen Curry ($9900) two full fantasy points behind Russ' season average of 52.8 FPTS a game. Portland is 19th in the league in opponents ppg and the Thunder have been on a tear recently. Lean on Westbrook tonight.

Kawhi Leonard ($8500): Despite the recent return to top level form of LaMarcus Aldridge ($7200), Leonard is still clearly the go to guy on the Spurs. In big games this season, it has been Kawhi that has shown up and raked. So in a game against the up and down Washington Wizards, who seem to play up to their opponents, I see Leonard as the man with the biggest fantasy impact tonight.

Blake Griffin ($9200): The Milwaukee Bucks have not been the same strong defensive team as they were last season, nor are they very tough inside. In fact, the Bucks are right in front of Portland in opponents ppg and 28th in the league in opponents rebound percentage. All this spells a big night for the big boy on the Clippers. Blake has been incredible so far this season, and if not for the ehh performances put in by the Clips would be getting a lot more attention. Start the former Sooner tonight.

High Risk

Ian Mahinmi ($3200): Despite a bad performance against Toronto on Sunday, Ian had himself quite the fantasy week last week with two games over 20 fantasy points and one over 40. With a matchup against the Mavericks' so-so defense and soft frontcourt, look for Mahinmi to shine tonight.

Ersan Ilyasova ($2200): Ilyasova's last five games in fantasy points: 35.25, 27.75, 36, 31.75, 13.25. Sure, there was an off game at the end of that run but the Piston has got his shot working and is an absolute steal at $2200.

Alec Burks ($3400): With a delightful matchup against the Pelicans' soft defense (28th in the league in opponents ppg), Burks will have every opportunity to replicate the performance he put up against OKC when the guard went off for 21 points. At $3400, Burks is hard to pass up.

Fillers

Monta Ellis ($5200): You know what you get with Ellis, a guy who can score in bunches and that's basically it. Last year, Monta was very good for the Mavs, and now he gets to face them. I look for a solid performance with the possibility of something extra going up against the Pacer guard's former team.

Jared Sullinger ($5400): Sullinger has really picked up his game recently. The Celtics get a chance to go into Detroit and push around an up and down team. Despite the presence of Andre Drummond ($9200), there will be plenty of rebounds there for Sullinger.

This week doesn't feature many games that are assuredly entertaining, but it does feature some solid gold fantasy wise. So sit back and let me help you win some leagues.

Can't Miss

Thomas Rawls ($7500): Rawls has been on a tear as of late and with a cushy matchup which has blowout written all over it, the Seahawks running back should get plenty of touches. Rawls is certainly my start of the week for running backs.

 Odell Beckham Jr. ($8700): OBJ might be the best pass catcher I have ever seen and this week faces off against the lackluster Dolphins corners. With the tear Beckham has been on lately, this isn't the week to stop relying on the second year wideout.

High Risk

Alex Smith ($6200): With a cushy matchup against the Chargers and a fully healthy Jeremy Maclin ($6900), Smith will have ample opportunity to score big.  I'm avoiding most big name QBs this week and Smith is one of my go to guys.

Vincent Jackson ($4500): I like anyone against the Saints and with the form Jameis Winston ($7500) has been in recently, Jackson could have an absolute field day.

Fillers

Scott Chandler ($5000): For a second week running, I like the New England Tight End. With Gronk either out or limited and a bevy of other injuries, Chandler can give you great value this week.

Shaun Draughn ($4300): The San Fran back has been impressive as of late and a matchup with the woeful Browns defense should allow that run to continue.  Slot Draughn in for pennies on the dollar and spend elsewhere.

Again, remember you can play against us at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge and you can follow me @dfinch21.

That's all folks. Best of luck this week!

Hello folks and welcome to another edition of my DFS picks for the NBA. I really hope that I can be as entertaining as the Golden State game from last night!

Can't Miss

Damian Lillard ($8500): Going up against the Knicks, a team with major backcourt defensive deficiencies, Lillard should dominate. This season has been a proving ground so far and I don't see that slowing down anytime soon.

John Wall ($8200): Wall has been on fire of late, posting some serious numbers. Despite being on a back to back and without Bradley Beal, the former Kentucky star should thrive against a Mavericks defense that is subpar at best. Look for another big performance from Wall tonight.

Paul George ($9500) and Andre Drummond ($9000): These two superstars face off this evening and really should put on a great show. With both teams struggling to stop anyone from scoring, this should be a real barnburner. With Drummond and George being the go to guys for their respective teams, look for them to really showcase their talents tonight.

High Risk

Clint Capela ($3400): Capela has formed a nice starting duo with Dwight Howard so far this season, and with a trip to Los Angeles to face the Lakers, I don't see a drop in production coming Clint's way. Look for a solid overall performance that checks boxes in multiple categories for very little dollar value.

Cody Zeller ($3300): Zeller gets to face the Celtics and his brother just one night after their double overtime loss to the Warriors. This game will allow Zeller to dominate the glass and pick up a ton of rebounds against the beleaguered Celtics big men.

Fillers

Deron Williams ($6000): Williams is one of those players I have ridden all season long. Until the former Net's salary changes, I will continue to ride him. With a matchup against a Washington team that is on a back to back, I will definitely give D-Will a shot.

Khris Middleton ($5000): Middleton can be streaky, but having the opportunity to go up against the tired Warriors only increases his appeal. With tired legs slower on the close out, Middleton will have plenty of time to line up and knock down threes.

Best of luck in all your games today!
