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) and Anthony Davis ($11,800) - The New Orleans Pelicans' dynamic duo continue to rack up fantasy points. On Friday night, Cousins rattled off a 20-point, 22-rebound, 7-assist performance for 55.9 FanDuel points, making it his seventh game -- out of nine -- with at least 55 fantasy points. Davis posted a monster game of his own with 30 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 blocks for 59.6 FanDuel points. That gives the Brow four consecutive games with at least 55 points, and he is averaging 59.4 fantasy points in the last week. Boogie is averaging 63.7 fantasy points in his last 5 games. Saturday's opponent, the Chicago Bulls, will do nothing to dissuade another big night from the duo. Chicago ranks in the bottom half of the NBA for fantasy points allowed to power forwards and centers.
