NBA Daily Fantasy Schedule, Projections and Simulations for Nov 12
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 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 – Kyle Lowry – Fairly priced, ultra consistent and in a high scoring matchup with the Pelicans is set for a big night. The Pelicans are hoping for the return of PG Elfrid Payton which may mean Lowry is slightly less owned with a big slate of games, I think the matchup with Payton actually gives Lowry a higher ceiling.
Sleeper Pickup – Harrison Barnes – Wes Matthews is likely to miss tonight which opens the door for Barnes to have a bigger scoring impact. Barnes had his best game of the season last week against the Wizards, scoring 19 points and grabbing 13 rebounds for 43.1 FDP.
