NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Tuesday 12/13/16

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

Anthony Davis (FanDuel Price: $11,600): Even though he has struggled in a few of his recent games, Davis is playing in what should be the most fantasy-friendly game of the evening. The New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors both rank in the top 10 in pace this season, and this game has the highest over/under of the night at 224. Davis' 54.0 FanDuel points per game this season rank second in the league, as do his six games of 60-plus fantasy points over the past month. The Warriors have allowed the league's seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing power forwards this season, and with Davis having played at least 40 minutes in seven of his last eight games, he should be able to take advantage of this good matchup.
