NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Thursday 3/21/19

Despite some blowout risk for Nikola Jokic, his upside against Washington is tough to ignore. Who else should you target on tonight's six-game slate?

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

Bradley Beal ($10,300): Averaging 29.7 points, 6.6 assists, 6.0 boards and 1.9 steals (good for 51.8 FanDuel points) in an absurd 39.8 minutes per game since the All-Star break, Beal remains priced curiously low. Yes, this is the second half of a back-to-back, so last night's 54.9 fantasy points don't get factored in, but I outlined before that game why $10,300 was too cheap anyway. The Denver Nuggets own a top-10 defensive rating, so Beal's efficiency will likely take a hit here. But he's cheap enough that it simply doesn't matter while he's playing minutes pushing 40.
