NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Saturday 3/17/18
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.
Here, we'll put all of that together and take a look at who you should target on today's main slate, which starts at 7 p.m. EST and includes 10 games.
Best of the Best
Anthony Davis ($12,400): We have Davis pegged for 53.8 FanDuel points, making him our top-projected player. He put up just 40.8 FanDuel points in his last outing, but he had 70.3 and 79.7 FanDuel points in his two games before that. He's gone for at least 70 FanDuel points in four of his last eight games, and the Pelicans-Rockets matchup has the day's highest over/under (226.5).
