Swaggy C’s Fanduel Fab Five 11/15/17

first_imgToday we have an 11 game slate.  Before I dive into the games I am going to explain the format I will use in my articles. I specialize on Fanduel but I am starting to try out Draftkings and I will see how it goes, so, for now, the articles will be for plays I like on Fanduel. Each article will have my 5 favorite plays, 1 from each position. I will also include my favorite game to target for each slate. I won’t just point out obvious high priced plays either. I will involve value plays as well. If there are any terms you don’t understand you can view my Guide to Daily Fantasy Sports or just tweet me @DfsSwaggyC . Now time to get into tonight’s games.My Fab FivePGKemba Walker $7,800Points Needed to Hit Value= 39Kemba Walker is my play at PG. He will be very highly owned more than likely tonight against the Cavs in a prime-time matchup. As we know the Cavs haven’t really been playing defense this year and has been giving it up to primary ball handlers. If the Hornets want to win this game Kemba will need to have a big night. Even though Batum will be back tonight he will have a minutes restriction so he won’t take away too much production from Kemba. Look for him to be highly owned tonight while he hit value as well.SGBuddy Hield $4,600Points Needed to Hit Value= 23Buddy Hield is my play at Shooting Guard today. Hield has been coming off the bench recently and has been carrying the bench squad. He is the primary scorer on the second group and I believe he has more potential for a higher fantasy game when he comes off the bench. Hield has hit value in 6 of his last 7 games and I can see him making it 7/8 tonight when he faces off against the Hawks who are the second worst team against the position.SFDillon Brooks $4,300Points Needed to Hit Value= 21.5Dillon Brooks is my play at SF tonight. He has been getting at least 25 minutes a game and hitting value as well. The last three games he has averaged 27.3 FDP. That is over 6x value. With Mike Conley possibly being out, that will give Brooks more usage just do to the fact that those are minutes and production that needs to be spread around and filled. I have been playing Brooks recently and will continue to tonight.PFTaj Gibson $4,800Points Needed to Hit Value= 24Taj Gibson is my play at the 4 spot tonight. Gorgui Dieng is doubtful tonight against the Spurs, who are coming off a back to back. With Dieng out Gibson has been seeing at least 35 minutes a game and has been producing as well. In those two games that Dieng has been out, Gibson put up 35.2 and 31 FDP. With Popovich more than likely resting some of his players, look for Gibson to continue his production on his way to value.CJoel Embiid $9,700Points Needed to Hit Value= 48.5Joel Embiid is my big man tonight. Just in case you weren’t aware, Embiid is not the biggest fan of Lavar Ball. The 76ers are facing the Lakers tonight on ESPN in the night cap. With Brook Lopez more than likely matching up with Embiid, I see this an amazing spot for Embiid to put up huge numbers. I expect a great game between both teams and big games from the young stars on each team as well. My Game of the NightPhiladelphia 76ers @ Los Angeles Lakers     This game has great young stars and should stay close since the projected total is 220 with the 76ers being a 3 point favorite. I will have many pieces from this game in my lines tonight. Related TopicsDaily Fantasy SportsDFSFanduelNBANBA DFS Casey Kotonskilast_img read more

Fletcher stars as Volcanoes, Red Force draw

first_imgROSEAU, Dominica, CMC – Andre Fletcher just missed out on a hundred in his first domestic four-day game in nearly three years as the rain-hit fourth round encounter between Windward Islands Volcanoes and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force finished in a predictable draw here yesterday. Resuming the final day at Windsor Park on 71 for two after the entire third day was lost to rain, Volcanoes reached 293 for eight in their first innings in reply to Red Force’s 373 for eight declared.Fletcher, on two at the start, top-scored with 88 while veteran opener Devon Smith made 67 and 20-year-old wicketkeeper/batsman Emmanuel Stewart, 56, the trio combining to ensure there were no unlikely surprises.Left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein picked up four for 61 to move to 20 wickets for the new season. Following a near two-hour delayed start due again to weather, an outright result would have always been improbable and Fletcher and Smith ensured there were no early wickets as they extended their overnight third wicket stand to 63 before being separated.Fletcher struck nine fours and two sixes off 219 deliveries while the left-handed Smith stroked nine fours on a 164-ball innings.Hosein broke the stand when he bowled Smith on the back foot with one which spun back sharply and when leg-spinner Yannic Cariah also bowled Alick Athanaze for 14, Volcanoes had lost two wickets for 25 runs to be 156 for four. However, Fletcher remained firmly entrenched, anchoring a 111-run fifth wicket partnership with Stewart, to deny Red Force any immediate further success.Both eventually perished in successive overs with the score on 267, Fletcher caught at the wicket off Hosein and Stewart taken at short leg off off-spinner Bryan Charles, after facing 104 balls and striking seven fours and a six.last_img read more

Messi Masterclass Propels Barcelona Past Chelsea Into Quarters; Scores 100th UCL Goal

first_imgLionel Messi again showed why he is regarded by many as the greatest player ever after he produced a masterclass to lead his beloved Barcelona side into the quarterfinal at the expense of Premier League champions Chelsea.With their UEFA Champions League (UCL) last 16 tie delicately balanced at 1-1 from the 1st leg in England, Messi edged Barcelona ahead with just three minutes of the second leg gone before teeing up young French winger Ousmane Dembele for the second goal on 20 minutes.Chelsea thereafter finished the 1st half strongly and also started the 2nd half in a similar fashion but all of that turned out to be in vain as the aforementioned Messi wrapped up the game with the 3rd goal in the 63rd minute for his 100th UCL goal to take Barcelona into the quarterfinals with a 4-1 aggregate win.

Afghan family with visas released after days of detention

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — A family of five from Afghanistan, detained by immigration officials in Los Angeles for unknown reasons since last Thursday, was released and reunited shortly before a court hearing on Monday.Attorneys representing the father, mother and three young children — ages 6 years, 7 years and 8 months — told ABC News the government has yet to disclose why they were held. Publicly, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials refuse to talk about the case.All five family members held special immigration visas or SIVs, which are set aside for individuals who have worked for the U.S government in Afghanistan or Iraq and could be harmed in their home country because of their service for the U.S. government.Attorneys said obtaining an SIV takes a substantial amount of time and vetting before arriving in the United States.The father, known in court documents as John Doe, worked for the U.S. government in Afghanistan and the entire family was extensively vetted, their attorneys said.“This really shows this detention was unjustified from its inception,” said Attorney Talia Inlender after the hearing.Inlender told ABC News that the family was held for almost two days without any communication and without access to attorneys after arriving at LAX. Then, the family was separated. She said the father was held at a detention center in Orange, California, while the mother and three children were held in downtown Los Angeles.On Saturday, the International Refugee Project filed a petition in federal court and attorneys were then allowed to meet with the family. Inlender said that’s when they learned the mother and children were possibly going to be moved to a detention center in Texas.A request for an emergency restraining order was then filed and immediately approved by a federal judge to keep the family in southern California.In court on Monday, after the family got back its passports and visas, attorneys asked the judge to rule that the family is in the country legally. But the government argued special immigration visas allow the family to enter but that the visas don’t mean the family members can stay. Homeland Security will now be allowed to interview the family in Seattle to determine if they can remain in the U.S.“There has been a lot of confusion,” said Inlender. “There’s a lack of transparency. That’s what this case is about at its hard. A lack of access to counsel. A lack of access to information.”Under the judge’s order, Homeland Security cannot detain or deport the family without 72 hours notice to attorneys.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
