NBA Daily Fantasy Schedule, Projections and Simulations for Nov 8
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 – Stephen Curry – Curry is in MVP form averaging 31 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds through 11 games. That’s with missing entire quarters in blowout wins. Tonight they matchup against the Bucks who are ranked second in scoring behind guess who, the Warriors. In a high scoring shootout on a 4 game slate this is a must stack game.
Sleeper Pickup – Klay Thompson – For all of the reasons above and Klay is the best value at his price point. He’s averaging 20 points per game but has gone off for 50+.
