NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Friday 11/9/18

Jeff Teague is still on the sidelines, giving Derrick Rose a ton of fantasy appeal in the game with Friday's highest over/under.

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

Andre Drummond ($10,200): With at least 58 FanDuel points in three of his last four games and career-high averages in both points (18.9) and rebounds (16.6) per game, Drummond's dominance doesn't need much introduction. Tonight he brings that league-leading rebounding into an especially great matchup, too, as the Atlanta Hawks' combination of the NBA's highest pace and second-lowest defensive rating has them allowing opponents to nab the sixth-most rebounds per game. They're also allowing the fourth-most points per game, so scoring shouldn't be an issue for Drummond either. His four games with 20-plus points and rebounds are the most in the NBA, and he could very well be in for another tonight.
