NBA Daily Fantasy Schedule, Projections and Simulations for Oct 30.
The key to winning a GPP on any given NBA slate is finding players who hit 7x or better over their value. If Lebron is $11,000 he would need to reach 77 Fanduel or Draftkings points. Like wise a player like Carmelo Anthony who is valued at $5,000 would need to reach 35. The strategy to win a contest is to reach 350 points, thats around the average winning margin to take down a contest. That means we need to take some risk on the $4,000 level and have at least two players around this salary, allowing us 6 roster spots at an average of $7,000. We can no longer just rely on the best matchups, much like sports betting we need to find the right value in order to maximize opportunity. This might mean picking my best 6 on matchups and analytics and entering a contest multiple times with different options at the $4,000 benchmark. Dive in daily HERE!
Superstar to Pay up for – Chris Paul – The Rockets will heavily rely on CP3 to play a huge role with James harden sidelined. They play the high scoring Trailblazers in the Highest Over/Under number of the night. In a high scoring matchup, it could pay dividends to stack this game.
Sleeper Pickup – Larry Nance – With the absence of Kevin Love Nance will play big minutes and be forced to fill a bigger hole on the struggling Cavaliers offense. He’s capable of double double’s on a nightly basis and putting up big rebounding numbers. When he was on the Lakers in this role he was consistently putting up 7 x his value.
