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 main slate, wich starts at 6 pm EST.
Best of the Best
Stephen Curry (FanDuel Price: $10,000) - Curry and the Golden State Warriors' matchup versus the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday is an enticing one to stack with only four games on the main slate. The game carries the highest over/under (232.5) while the Dubs' implied total of 122.75 is nearly 10 points higher than anyone else's. The Nets also allow the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing point guards. There is concern that the 13-point spread could limit Curry's minutes in the second-half of a back-to-back. That's a valid worry, but with Kevin Durant (ankle) out on Sunday, Curry should see plenty of court time against the NBA's 29th-ranked defense (113.7 points allowed per game).
