 Benny's NBA DFS Cash Game Breakdown - 12/20
Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 - 16:25

So this is a big slate and that means a lot of ways to go. Some of the news we are waiting on has come in. On a day like today I think it best to talk about the tiers of players and which guys in those tiers I have on my short list.

  • Vegas: Raptors -2, 211.5
  • Raptors: 10th pace, 4th scoring 9th points allowed
  • Hornets: 9th pace, 17th scoring, 16th points allowed

Raptors: Favored on the road, but not in the greatest spot against a decent defense. The pace factor doesn’t change much here, so neither team gets a bump or a downgrade. The Raptors are a pretty easy team to nail down. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are the main two weapons. DeRozan is a nearly unstoppable scorer and Lowry does a little bit of everything. These two guys lead the team in minutes and usage rates. Both are also worth a look. The only other guy I am going to mention is Jonas Valanciunas. He has played close to 30 minutes in 3 of his last 4 games with the 30+ point blowout of the nets being the one he did not see a ton of court time in. Valanciunas can produce when he sees minutes. After he was banged up, they were limiting him to under half a game and the upside was capped. In those three recent games where he jumped from 20 to 30 minutes a night, he has produced 43, 37, and 43 DK points. For a guy priced in the mid $5K range, that is 8X kind of upside. The matchup here is a tad tougher with Dwight Howard, but if Valanciunas gets 30 minutes he needs to give us 30-35 and even a little regression with a tough matchup still gets him there. The rest of the team is role players who lack upside or consistent minutes. Ibaka is the questionable player here. If he misses it only solidifies my love for JV and bumps up the other scorers. I would probably not use him, even if he does end up playing.

What’s up everyone. With today’s 3-game slate I wanted to try a little bit different format where I list my top 3 point-per-dollar plays on each site at each position, with notes where needed. Most likely back to regular format tomorrow but we’ll try this for tonight.

  • Pelicans: 6th pace, 5th scoring, 29th points allowed
  • Wizards: 14th pace, 14th scoring, 11th points allowed

Pelicans: I have such a tough time trying to figure out the Pelicans. At the start of the year, you were getting 38 minutes a night from Boogie and many times over 40 from Anthony Davis. Those two were basically locks and the only guys I ever used. Davis is still seeing a huge minute’s load when healthy, but Boogie’s minutes have dropped closer to the low 30s, which also drops his production. If I have to choose between the bigs, I think I lean Anthony Davis in current form. The thing that becomes hard is that now we have to consider the wing options too. Even if you scratch out the game Davis missed and everyone else had a bump in production, you still have Jrue Holiday, Rajon Rondo and E’Twaun Moore each putting up some 6-8X returns lately. Jrue has been especially good with 50+ DK points in 4 of the last 7, including 3 of his last 4. Even Rondo, who has underperformed in his last two games had a streak of 5 out of 6 with 40+ DK points. The matchup here is not ideal, but the pace should be hot and we should see some points scored on both sides. It’s interesting on DraftKings too, because all four of those guys could reach value and all of them are a slight discount to where they have been recently.

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 other articles, 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.

 Scott's NBA By The Numbers - 12/18

The injury bug has hit the NBA hard and many players with significant roles on their teams are either out or questionable. We’re really going to focus in on those players and the impact that their availabilities have on this slate. There’s a lot of situations to keep track of and it’s easy to let certain players slip through the cracks. Today’s article is meant to make sure that we are on top of everything and have all the relevant injury info in one spot.

Tonight is a great night to play multiple teams, to mix and match all the great value and usage bumps with some other players in great spots, and to really take advantage of the edge that a night like tonight provides.
