NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Sunday 11/11/18
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.
Best of the Best
Victor Oladipo ($9,300): While the Vegas total (209.0) and team implied total of the Indiana Pacers (103.0) are not very inspiring, Oladipo has a few things going for him that make him a phenomenal target on the Sunday main slate. At just $9,300, we have a player who has scored 54.0, 67.7, 46.9, and 58.3 FanDuel points in four of the last five games. His low-water mark in that five-game span is 34.2 points, which isn't a score that will sink your lineups. Oladipo has scored 20 or more actual points in every single game this season except for the season opener. He has a usage rate of at least 30.8% in six of the last seven games, and he has played more than 30 minutes in every game except for opening night. I am not sure what else you want from a stud.
