Daily NBA Fantasy Advice For FanDuel (11–28–15)
It’s a limited slate of NBA action tonight which emphasizes the need to make the correct player selections. If you’re going to invest big in one or two players then you’ll need to also make sure to fill the remainder of your roster with high value guys at lower prices. Here are my top selections for each position tonight, along with some value targets, for your consideration.
Seth Curry ($10,900) remains the top guy at point guard but I think you’ll get a very similar performance from Portland’s Damian Lillard for $1,500 cheaper. The Lakers allow 47.4 FanDuel points per game to the point guard position (worst in the NBA) and Lillard will be a benefactor of that tonight.
John Wall is a good mid-range option at $8,500 and Dallas’ Deron Williams is your value selection at just $6,500.
You can save a bunch of money here and still get some good point values. DeMar DeRozan ($7,500), Brad Beal ($6,800), and C.J. McCollum ($6,600) are all great options and are at a great price.
LeBron James is still king of this position tonight, but he’s going to cost you a bunch of money with that $10,100 price tag. Kawhi Leonard ($8,900) isn’t quite going to score to the extent of James but he’ll give you a better dollar per point point value. Danilo Gallinari is a great value at $7,200. I think there’s a good chance that he’ll have a 30-plus performance tonight.
This, and point guard, are the deepest positions of the night which means there are more values to be found. Kevin Love is going to cost you $8,300 and he’s going against a Brooklyn team that gives up 39.1 FanDuel points per game to the power forward position. I would also look at Derrick Favors ($8,000) against New Orleans. If you’re wanting to save a few dollars then Dirk Nowitzki still has good value at $6,600.
Don’t spend big here. Brook Lopez should be set for a performance in the mid-30’s at an $8,200 knock against your salary cap, but I think you’ll get the exact same production, if not better, from Mason Plumlee for $2,000 cheaper. If you want to aim for something in the middle the Al Horford is available to $7,200.
