NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Tuesday 1/10/17
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
James Harden (FanDuel Price: $11,700): Harden's fantasy production has been incredibly consistent this season. While he finally posted his first game with less than 40 FanDuel points last week, he has still topped the 50-point mark in 12 of his 16 games over the past month. He owns an average of 55.2 FanDuel points per game in that span, coming on a very well-rounded 28.3 points, 12.4 assists and 9.0 rebounds per game. His price tag is pretty reasonable tonight considering that production, especially with a matchup against the Charlotte Hornets squad allowing above-average fantasy production to both guard positions this season. Harden is our top projected fantasy player on the slate.
