 Jefe's NBA Rundown - 3/15
Posted by Jeff Collins on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - 17:17

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 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.

Gonna keep this format rolling for now since it’s working really well for people...

Key Players Already Ruled OUT: E. Turner, D. Murray, Batum, Favors

Posted by Benny Ricciardi on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - 11:06

So I just got back from the doctor and I have a 102 fever and strep throat, but luckily I am not on the radio or the show today and do not need my voice to write. I will, however, consider this my Flu game and apologize for the article being a tad shorter than my usual write up…but I honestly need to go to bed.

 

Charlotte Hornets @ Indiana Pacers

Vegas: Pacers -2, O/U: 203

Hornets: 17th pace, 14th scoring, 11th fewest points allowed

Pacers: 16th Pace, 19th Scoring, 15th most points allowed

Again, lots of good feedback and I know a lot of people had a good night last night so gonna still ride out this format and return to a commentary-style article soon! “Main Targets” are more of my cash game and possible tournament core plays, while the “Contrarian” category helps you find lower owned guys to mix into your tournament lineups.

Key Players Already Ruled OUT: Love, Korver, J. Harris, E. Turner

Detroit Pistons @ Cleveland Cavaliers

Vegas: Cavs -8, O/U: 215

Cavs: 15th Pace, 4th Scoring, 10th fewest points allowed

Pistons: 24th Pace, 24th Scoring, 6th fewest points allowed

LeBron James – The King just had 67 fantasy points in this matchup a few days ago. Ever since Kevin Love went down, he has picked up his production across the board. LeBron has 64 or more in 6 of his last 8 games. He is scoring right around 30, grabbing 12 boards, and dishing out just shy of 10 assists per game right now. The production is elite and should continue, despite the tough matchup.

Iman Shumpert – I do not love the matchup, but the price I too good to ignore. Shumpert is still seeing minutes and still producing 20-25 fantasy points. That is not elite by any stretch, but it does make him a decent value option if you are trying to go stars and scrubs.

Lots of positive feedback about this format, so I’ll stick with it another day… but likely back to providing more of a commentary-style article tomorrow.

Key Players Already Ruled OUT: Aldridge, T. Parker, D. Murray, Mi. Plumlee, Noel, Favors, Mack

Bulls: 20th Pace, 26th Scoring, 7th fewest points allowed

Marvin Williams - He might be the most under-the-radar stud at the moment in the entire league. Marvin Williams has been playing some ridiculously good basketball and no one seems to care. With the injuries to Kaminsky and Johnny O’Bryant thinning the big man herd, he has seen 35+ minutes lately. In four of the last five games he has at least 40 fantasy points. That is over a 6.5X floor at his current price.

This should be a fun slate despite only having five games. Four of the five have totals over 220 with spreads of 6 points or less. That means we have a lot of options. The only game that is not a good one for fantasy purposes is that Miami/Indiana game with a 205 total. The rest should all turn into high scoring shootouts.

 

Point Guard

Kyrie Irving - Kyrie has upped his scoring since the Kevin Love injury and now gets a high tempo game with a high projected total. Sure Patrick Beverley is a great defender, but the pace they play at still means opposing guards are doing work against them. Kyrie had 40+ in the first meeting and that was with Kevin Love active. In this one with no Love, I expect even more upside from a guy who has been tough to guard recently.

Stars and scrubs approach tonight with how much value there is, and for me there’s not much difference between my cash and my GPP lineups since there’s value you can’t ignore. I’ve included contrarian plays that I think will be lower owned, but keep in mind that I’m going to prefer to hammer the obvious value in most cases, so the contrarian plays are a little more thin than usual. Since there are so many guys to cover, I’m not really going to provide much commentary and instead will focus on making sure you guys understand which players I’m highest on. The commentary would pretty much all be “these guys are hurt and this guy benefits because of minutes and expected usage” and that’s going to get really redundant. For commentary, please tune into the show with Thad and myself.

 Thad Houston's DFS Plays - 3/11
Posted by Thad Houston on Saturday, March 11, 2017 - 13:52

What's up y'all? We have 9 games on tonight's NBA main slate with another 3 games scheduled to tip off earlier in the afternoon. Between games getting canceled for condensation, strange player rotations and random player injuries, the past week has been a strange one. Something tells me that tonight will be no different. There's plenty of opportunity for us to "sweep the leg" tonight so let's get to it. You don't need me to tell you Nikola Jokic (47.4 fantasy points/game over his last 3 games) and DeMarcus Cousins (38.2 fantasy points/game over his last 3 games) are good at basketball so I'll try to stay away from some of the more obvious plays and look to point out some juicy picks here and there.
 

Point Guard

Cash: S. Livingston, M. Conley
