NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Tuesday 10/23/18
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.
Best of the Best
Anthony Davis ($13,000): Between the 33 games he played without DeMarcus Cousins last year and his 2 games to start this season, Davis has more games with at least 70 FanDuel points (10) than with fewer than 50 (7). Over those 35 contests, he has averaged 61.2 FanDuel points per game (more than anyone has averaged in a season since FanDuel's inception) with a median score of 58.4. That kind of production is absolutely ridiculous, and on a three-game slate, it makes him incredibly tough to fade, especially with the rest of the day's top-priced options all coming with some question marks.
