NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Thursday 11/8/18
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
Stephen Curry ($10,700): Curry ranks second in the NBA with 20.3 field goal attempts per game, first with 11.1 three-point attempts per game, first with 10.6 made field goals and first by a huge margin with 5.6 made three-pointers per game. With a 31.8% usage rate to Kevin Durant's 28.1%, Curry is well-established as the top dog in the Golden State Warriors offense. The Dubs' 122.5-point implied total is Thursday's highest by a big margin, and combining that with a matchup against a Milwaukee Bucks squad that allows the most made threes per game, Curry is positioned to do some serious offensive damage.
