NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Sunday 2/10/19
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, which starts at 7:30 p.m. EST and features only two games.
Best of the Best
Nikola Vucevic ($9,600): The Orlando Magic are implied to score 113.0 points and are currently 2.0-point road favorites over the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks rank 26th in defensive efficiency, and the Magic get a healthy pace-up environment for this contest. Vucevic should lead the charge for the Orlando offense, and he's been really good lately. Since January 13th, he has scored at least 40.3 FanDuel points in 12 of 14 games. That's astonishing and gives him a stellar floor, and his ceiling is good, too, evidenced by the fact that he's scored 50-plus fantasy points on five different occasions in that span. With the Golden State Warriors and their plethora of superstars are on this two-game slate, Vucevic could fly under the radar a bit if the masses opt to pay up for Dubs.
