NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Wednesday 11/21/18

Victor Oladipo is out again, and we can go back to the well with Pacers guards tonight.

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 ($12,200): Davis gets a drop in salary tonight despite the fact that he has averaged 64.1 FanDuel points per game over his last seven, not scoring fewer than 55 in that stretch. He has also topped 70 FanDuel points twice in his last seven games, which is already as many times as any other player has done so on the season. I was almost ready to suggest fading Brow on this slate, as we have 13 games and he's got a tough matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers, but that would have been if his recent production had caused another increase in salary. Instead, he's the cheapest he has been in two weeks, meaning he continues to be a top play.
