NBA Daily Fantasy Schedule, Projections and Simulations for Nov 1.
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 for – Giannis Antetokounmpo – The Great Freak is cleared to play after missing Monday night, last season against Boston he averaged 33.5 PPG, 10.8 RPG, 5 APG over four regular-season matchups. Boston have a great defense but struggle to defend the big man.
Sleeper Pickup – Gordon Hayward – Showing glimpses of his old self, is ready to step up in minutes and production after being slowly eased into the season. Quality steal at the price and could be ready to go off.
