NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Monday 11/26/18

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been on fire in his last few games, and he's not likely to slow down much against the Hornets.

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

Giannis Antetokounmpo ($12,700): Second in the NBA in fantasy scoring with 55.0 FanDuel points per game, Giannis has absolutely exploded recently, topping 70 twice and averaging 65.3 per game over his last three. We can't count on him continuing to average in the 60s, but ranking so highly for the entire season puts him in a terrific spot tonight against the Charlotte Hornets. This game's 235.5-point over/under beats any other on the slate by 11.5 points, and this also projects to be a fairly close shootout, with a 4.5-point spread, making the Milwaukee Bucks' 120.0-point implied total the slate's highest as well.
