NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Saturday 10/28/17
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 ton of other great resources to help give you an edge.
We'll also be coming at you with this 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
DeMarcus Cousins (FanDuel Price: $12,000) - Anthony Davis is looking questionable to suit up tonight. If he sits out, Cousins becomes an otherworldly option. In the last two games, with the Brow out for all or most of the game, Boogie put up 63.1 and 79.6 FanDuel points, respectively. Even if Davis tries to give it a go, Cousins hasn't been too shabby alongside him, averaging 57.2 fantasy points in three full games with Davis in the lineup. The Cleveland Cavaliers, the Pels' foe, have been out of sorts on defense lately, too. They have allowed 112.7 points per game in their last three contests and own a bottom-eight defensive rating (107.2) for the season.
