If you're new to daily fantasy basketball -- maybe you started your DFS journey during the MLB or NFL seasons, or maybe basketball is your sport and this will be your first year giving it a shot -- you're in for a treat. The NBA scene changes hugely on a week-to-week, day-to-day, and depending on injury news, even a minute-to-minute basis, making every slate a unique one that requires an ever-changing approach.
With so much changing so quickly, we're here with plenty of tools to help you out. We have daily projections, a matchup heat map, a lineup optimizer and a handful of other awesome tools to help give you an edge.
We'll also be coming at you with a primer every day, breaking down a few of the day's top plays at each price point.
Let's take a look at who you should target on today's slate.
Best of the Best
Kawhi Leonard ($8,500): As he has in each year of his career, Leonard has seen an increased role in the San Antonio Spurs' offense, and he has a big 32.7% usage rate in 32.9 minutes per game through his first nine contests. He's averaging 41.3 FanDuel points -- coming from 26.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 2.4 steals -- per game, and Leonard draws a great matchup against a Houston Rockets team that ranks 25th in defensive rating and has allowed top-10 fantasy production to opposing forwards.
