NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Wednesday 11/15/17
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: $11,900) and Anthony Davis ($11,300) - Davis is probably the better by here (our algorithms project him for more fantasy points than Cousins), but the New Orleans Pelicans host the Toronto Raptors, who played last night in Houston and got a drawn out win. Davis has played at least 36 minutes in all but one contest and has 52.6 or more FanDuel points in 10 of 13 games. He's just locked in right now.
Same goes for Cousins, who has at least 42.9 FanDuel points in every game this season. Toronto is just 17th in rebounding rate, giving both a strong chance at a double-double. With a total of 219.5 and a thin 3.5-point spread, this game should have plenty of fantasy goodness to go around for the two New Orleans studs.
