NBA Daily Fantasy Schedule, Projections and Simulations for Nov 7.
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 – Lebron James – The Lakers rank 4th in the NBA in pace of possession and Lebron put up monster numbers in their first matchup this season with the Timberwolves. He posted 28, 10 & 8 with a pair of blocks and steals and Minnesota have the second worst defense in the league.
Sleeper Pickup – Dennis Schroeder – With Westbrook off the court, he’s averaging 1.06 fantasy points per minute with a 32.2% usage rate. The Cavs are dead last in the league in team defensive efficiency (115.1 points allowed per 100 possessions) and at his current quote he is primed for a bug night.
