NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Tuesday 11/15/16
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
Damian Lillard ($9,500): Lillard has been an incredibly consistent fantasy producer this season, totaling 40-plus FanDuel points in eight of his 11 starts, including four games of 50-plus points. A big factor in that production has been his volume. He ranks fifth in the NBA with 19.3 field goal attempts per game while his 32.7% usage rate ranks seventh. He brings that volume into a decent matchup as the Portland Trail Blazers have the second-highest implied total on the slate for their clash with the Chicago Bulls.
