 Jefe's NBA Rundown - 1/23
Posted by Jeff Collins on Monday, January 23, 2017 - 17:15

As always, the rundown is designed to give you an opinion on some different players or situations in the slate today. You need to be reacting to news throughout the day. Always keep an eye on Twitter for the most up-to-date information. The idea is not that you use ONLY players from this article to build your lineups, but rather all of our content from Benny’s article, to our cheat sheets and videos along with our projections algorithm and optimizer. If you’re trying to only use players under the “cash” section to build your cash lineups for instance, you’re going to have a hard time. Instead, use some of those players as building blocks and fill in around them...

 Benny's Daily Hoops - 1/23
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Monday, January 23, 2017 - 10:48

Vegas: Hornets -4.5, O/U: 214

Wizards: 15th Pace, 12th Scoring, 9th most points allowed

Hornets: 16th Pace, 16th Scoring, 10th fewest points allowed

This is a pretty high total game here and we have a lot of guys to consider. Let’s start with Washington.

John Wall - Wall is an underrated superstar in this league, especially in DFS. He is priced up there with all of the studs we mention on a daily basis, yet tends to be one of the lower owned ones. That is why I like him a lot for tournament play. He has the upside of a 50-60 point game with a double-double featuring a ton of assists.

Markieff Morris - Morris has been on a nice run lately. He has 35+ DK points in 5 of his last 8 and 3 of the last 4 overall. He has been doing a little bit of everything, including some really big upside games.

There is only a four game slate today, with two early games and two late ones. You guys know how I feel about locking up money early in the day with no late swap, so if you choose to play an All Day slate, just realize there is risk you really can not do anything about with that strategy. Point Guards Jameer Nelson - Emmanuel Mudiay is out and there is no reason not to play a dirt cheap Nelson in cash games. He is so cheap and so chalk I do not even think fading him in tournaments is worth it. I’ll take a guy playing 30+ minutes in a paced up game at near min price all day. Kyle Lowry - Lowry gets the paced up matchup against the suspect Phoenix defense today. He should have a monster game. The blowout is always a concern, but the matchup is too good to ignore.

Point Guard Cash: Felton, Rivers, Walker GPP: Felton, Rivers, Walker, Hill Notes: The Clippers value guards are my go-to’s in cash again. They are better plays on FanDuel, but still playable on both sites with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin out. The usage and minutes boosts are obviously substantial for both Felton and Rivers. The charts pulled from StatMuse below show the exact numbers. (Top: usage, Bottom: minutes)

 Thad Houston's DFS Plays - 1/21
Posted by Thad Houston on Saturday, January 21, 2017 - 15:15

Point Guard

Cash: Walker, Rivers, Felton 

GPP: Bledsoe, Collison, K. Irving

Notes: Kemba Walker has been playing well of late (averaging 38 fantasy points per game over his last five). After dropping 47 fantasy points on Toronto last night he's in an even better matchup tonight at home against the hapless Nets (BKN ranks #30 in DvP versus PG). He's my favorite cash game PG on the main slate.

With Chris Paul on the shelf for several weeks with a thumb injury, we can get used to using Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers in our cash games for the for unforeseeable future (DEN ranks #29 in DvP versus PG). Both are good values across the industry, so who you choose it's up to you. Using both in tournaments actually makes for a pretty nice strategy.

Phoenix Suns @ Cleveland Cavaliers

Vegas: Cavs -12, O/U: 219

Suns: 3rd Pace, 11th Scoring, 2nd most points allowed

Cavs: 14th Pace, 5th Scoring, 12th Most points allowed

The key piece of news to look at here is whether or not Kevin Love plays through his sore back. If Love is out, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James get a big boost up in usage and production. This is one of the best possible matchups a team can have. Phoenix plays fast and are one of the softest defensive units in the league. Point guards have done especially well against them, which is why I think Kyrie is a great play even if Love does happen to suit up.
