NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Wednesday 1/2/19

Playing without John Wall in a terrific matchup against the Hawks makes Bradley Beal a top play 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): Probable to suit up tonight after missing Monday's game due to illness, Anthony Davis should immediately step back in as the league's most dominant fantasy force. Davis is the only player averaging more than 60 FanDuel points per game this year, and he has topped 60 in 21 contests. For context, only two other players have 21 or more games with more than 50 FanDuel points, and nobody else has more than 12 games above 60. The Brooklyn Nets allow the league's most FanDuel points per minute to opposing centers, and Brow should continue to feast tonight.
