NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Friday 11/30/18
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
Russell Westbrook ($11,400): Doing what we're used to seeing from him, Westbrook has triple-doubles in three of his last four games, and over his last five he is averaging 21.8 points, 12.8 rebounds, 11.0 assists and 2.0 steals -- good for 56.5 FanDuel points per game. His price tag does not at all capture that, especially the season-high 70.1 FanDuel points in his last game, and combining that with his matchup against Atlanta makes him a top play in all formats. The Hawks give up big numbers across the board, allowing the NBA's second-most points, most assists, fourth-most rebounds and most steals per game.
