NBA Daily Fantasy Schedule, Projections and Simulations for Nov 14
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 – Rudy Gobert – Gobert has been over 43 fantasy points in his last three games. More importantly, he’s averaging 52.1 fantasy points in his two games against the Mavericks this season. This is a great matchup for the star center and he could be in for a big night and likely to be lesser owned considering the position and how many Superstars are in action tonight.
Sleeper Pickup – Rajon Rondo – In two games against the Blazers, Rondo is averaging 38.7 fantasy points in 29 minutes. Meanwhile, Lonzo Ball has really struggled. I’m going to trust that Luke Walton plays the hotter hand and goes with Rondo more often in this game.
