NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Monday 4/9/18

Players in tonight's Clippers/Pelicans matchup have a ton of fantasy appeal with the game's high 226.5 over/under. Who else should be on your radar in daily fantasy?

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 slate.

Best of the Best

Anthony Davis ($13,200): The Clippers/Pelicans game is one you're going to want plenty of exposure to tonight. The 226.5 over/under is the slate's highest, and both teams rank top-five in pace since the All-Star break. You're not going to find a player with a higher ceiling than Davis, who has 5 of the top 11 single-game FanDuel scores on the season. He's also the only player averaging more than 60 per game since the All-Star break and has topped 65 in each of his last 2. He's tough to fit with tonight's slate not offering a ton of value around minimum-salary, but his upside is well worth the price-tag, particularly in tournaments.
