NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Wednesday 11/1/17

It's a hefty 12-game slate. Who is deserving of a roster spot on your FanDuel lineups?

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 ($11,700) and Anthony Davis ($11,800) - Both New Orleans Pelicans big guys are in elite spots tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves, who rank last in defensive rating and 29th in defensive rebounding rate. That's a recipe for Cousins to dominate against the weak defense of Karl-Anthony Towns. Same goes for Davis against Taj Gibson. Davis and Cousins are two of our three highest-projected fantasy point producers for tonight, and it's easy to see why in a game with a 224-point over/under and a thin 2-point spread.
