NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Monday 12/3/18

Even with the risk of a blowout, a matchup with the Hawks gives Stephen Curry huge fantasy appeal 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 ($12,700): It won't be long before we run out of new ways to talk about how good Davis' fantasy numbers are. In his last 10 games, he has topped 63 FanDuel points 7 times; no other player has more than six such games over the entire season. Nobody has averaged more than his 61.3 FanDuel points per game in a season since 1993, when David Robinson's stats would have earned him 61.7 per game. And yet we're still getting Davis priced below where he was to start the season, when he was in the $13,000 range. That makes him someone to consider just about every night, and a matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers, who allow top-five fantasy points to centers, makes that especially true on Monday.
