NBA Daily Fantasy Schedule, Projections and Simulations for Nov 13
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 – James Harden – On a 3 game slate, I’m going to key in on the best offensive matchup and thats Houston at Denver. The Beard went back into usage monster mode, sporting a 49% usage rate, while putting up 1.74 FP/M on his way to 66 fantasy points in his last outing. Amidst a Carmelo Anthony feud, this is a must win sport for the Rockets.
Sleeper Pickup – Nicolas Batum – The Cavs are 23rd in the NBA in points allowed per game, Batum is a bargain price with a potential blowout number on a night with just 3 games.
