FanDuel Daily Fantasy NBA: Super Trey Day Strategy Guide

If you enter a featured NBA contest on 3/3 and every player in your lineup hits a three, you can win an additional prize. How can you maximize your three-point potential?

Tuesday features an intriguing eight-game NBA slate, but there's a little more to it than just the typical daily fantasy fun on FanDuel.

If you enter a featured NBA contest on FanDuel and if all nine of your players hit a three, you will share in a $20,000 bonus prize -- in addition to any other prizes your lineup wins.

Pretty simple, right?

So how should you approach things?

Well, first, you'll want to make sure that your players all are in a good spot to produce overall fantasy points. Claiming a share of the $400,000 prize pool is great, but you can still cash in if your lineup crushes and everyone hits from deep. Be sure to check out numberFire's daily fantasy basketball projections to build your best lineup.

With that out of the way, who are some of the best position-by-position three-point values on the board?

Three-Point Values

If we look at players who are projected to score at least 4.0 FanDuel points per $1,000 in salary, here are the best values based on three-pointers made per game.

(In case you're wondering why I made this cutoff, think about it this way: if every player on your team scores 5.0 FanDuel points per $1,000 and you max out your salary cap, your team would score 300 FanDuel points, a solid score most nights. It's not often players are projected for such high values, but I at least wanted to limit our search to players with relevant FanDuel projections for tonight so that we can find players who will hit three as well as produce fantasy points.)

Landry Shamet Buddy Hield Taurean Prince Davis Bertans Aron Baynes
Patty Mills Bryn Forbes Marcus Morris Sr. Nemanja Bjelica Moritz Wagner
Kemba Walker Bogdan Bogdanovic Joe Harris JaMychal Green Thomas Bryant
Reggie Jackson Garrett Temple Danilo Gallinari Kyle Kuzma Nikola Jokic
Terry Rozier Danny Green Cameron Johnson Jerami Grant Cody Zeller
Kyle Lowry Josh Hart Paul George Jayson Tatum
Patrick Beverley Fred VanVleet Glenn Robinson III P.J. Washington
Lonzo Ball D'Angelo Russell Jaylen Brown Dario Saric
Jamal Murray Marcus Smart Brandon Ingram Jabari Parker
Shabazz Napier Alec Burks Will Barton Naz Reid

You may notice a lack of center options who pop here, and that's not because I'm being stingy. With Karl-Anthony Towns, Marc Gasol, and Joel Embiid listed as out, only Aron Baynes ($3,500) and Nikola Jokic ($10,300) average more than 0.7 made threes per game among centers. Both of them are at 1.2. Towns (3.3), Gasol (1.4), and Embiid (1.3) lead the way. This should really emphasize Jokic and Baynes due to the opportunity cost involved. You don't want to rely on Dwight Howard to hit one from deep.

The top option overall based on value is Davis Bertans ($4,900). Bertans has hit 3.6 three-pointers per game and is easily the best value option on the board. Buddy Hield ($5,500) and Landry Shamet ($3,500), Patrick Mills ($3,500), and Bryn Forbes ($3,500) also fit the bill from a sheer dollar-per-three-pointer standpoint.

Most Games With a Three

All we need is one three from our players, so what if we look at things a little differently?

Here are the players -- still projected for at least 4.0 FanDuel points per $1,000 -- who hit at least one three in the highest percentage of their games played. (For example, Buddy Hield has hit a three in 59 of 60 games (98.3%).)

This again emphasizes the relevance of Baynes and Jokic while showing the depth at the backcourt and wing positions. We'll want to build lineups by selecting our power forwards and center first and then relying on the multitude of options at the other three positions.
