NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Saturday 4/28/18
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.
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, which starts at 8 p.m. EST and contains two games.
Best of the Best
Anthony Davis (FanDuel Price: $12,500) - As the New Orleans Pelicans swept away the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round, Davis destroyed in DFS. The Brow averaged a league-high 33.0 points and 2.8 blocks in addition to his 11.8 boards and 1.8 steals in the four games. He finished with at least 59 FanDuel points three times, posting an average of 60.6 FanDuel points in the series. While the Pels won't have as easy of a time in the second round versus the Golden State Warriors, Davis could go thrive again. In three games versus the Dubs this season, AD dropped at least 56 FanDuel points each time, with two games of 70-plus fantasy points. With a two-game slate on Saturday, it will be hard to fade Davis and his massive ceiling, especially with the lack of center options to roster.
