NBA Daily Fantasy Helper: Tuesday 3/26/19
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.

Giannis Antetokounmpo ($12,400): Despite playing only 31.9 minutes per game since the All-Star break, Giannis ranks third in the NBA with 56.2 FanDuel points per game in that time. Only seven of his 14 games in that sample have been decided by 10 points or fewer, but in those seven, he's topped 35 minutes three times, averaging 33.0 per game. With the Milwaukee Bucks favored by only 4.0 against the Houston Rockets tonight, we can expect a more substantial workload than what Giannis has seen in a few games. That gives him a terrific floor and ceiling.
