NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Monday 3/25/19
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.
Best of the Best
Russell Westbrook ($12,000): Our models' top-projected fantasy scorer for Monday, Westbrook is once again well worth paying up for. He's averaging 37.0 minutes per game since the All-Star break, and for a guy who ranks fifth in the NBA with an average of 1.53 FanDuel points per minute, that workload is east to love. His efficiency is down a bit lately, but he's still putting up 54.1 FanDuel points per game since the break. He's in a pretty reasonable spot tonight, as well, taking on a Memphis Grizzlies team that ranks a middling 14th in defensive rating since the All-Star break and is now playing incredibly short-handed thanks to an array of injuries.
