What’s going on guys? For those that purchased the articles, you are in for a big treat tonight. Our first premium day on DailyFantasy305 was a little unorganized, but still a great start-up with all of our advice and picks spot-on. We are looking to build up on that success by increasing our articles today from 3 to 5. As for me, I’m going to be discussing my favorite overall plays in each position. NOTE: We are going to want to follow what the injury report will be tonight for the Denver Nuggets as they are a lot of questionable players that aren’t yet confirmed to play. Cash game or not, these are the guys that stand out to me.
Stephen Curry |$9,400| @ DEN
Before I talk about how Curry is in an amazing spot tonight, I would want to first emphasize that I’ve never seen a more stacked PG position on any slate this season on FanDuel than I have today. In the end of the day, you can’t go wrong with any of the “Players to Consider” I mention in this article.
Being both a FanDuel and DraftKings daily player, I always love to compare the prices between the two sites to see what players are under/over priced and what-not. Tonight, on Fanduel, Stephen Curry is very underpriced ($600 differential). With the O/U for tonight’s slate currently at an astonishing 239 points you will definitely want to target this game even with a blowout factor written on it. More points = more production. Curry will be going up tonight against Jameer Nelson and the 29th ranked team in guarding PG’s. While this matchup screams target, another thing to note is that Klay Thompson AND Shaun Livingston are both ruled out tonight. This news make Curry an almost Must-Have for me as the usage/shots/production will all be there for him in tonight matchup. Don’t be shocked if you see Curry‘s FDP in the 50+ range, because I certainly won’t.
Alos Consider: Damian Lillard (Usage goes up by 5% w/o Plumlee and spread is at -1.5), Jrue Holiday, Jameer Nelson, Eric Bledsoe, Mike Conley, Dennis Schroder, TJ McConnell, & Ish Smith
Will Barton |$5,800| vs GS
Yep, just like that we got another target for the highest projected O/U game of the slate. Coming in to this late-night matchup, The Denver Nuggets have already ruled out Emmanuel Mudiay, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, & Darrell Arther while Wilson Chandler is currently questionable missing shootaround. With that being said, there is no question that Denver Nuggets will need to rely on Will Barton to step up and keep this game competitive tonight. I can admit that I got burned with Barton on Saturday, but that was because he came off the bench that game. Without Arthur, I would assume Mike Malone would insert Barton back in the lineup giving him the usage and minutes bump for him to erupt tonight. Also, if Chandler does indeed not play tonight, Barton goes from an excellent mid-range play to a must-have. Bottom line, follow the news with the Denver Nuggets and make sure to insert Barton in your lineups tonight. Thank me later.
Also Consider: Giannis Antetokounmpo, CJ McCollum (Elite GPP Play, Value increases w/o Sefalosha), Marcus Smart, Tony Allen, & Devin Booker
Kawhi Leonard |$9,600| @ IND
While I personally faded the slate yesterday, it was clear to say that Kwahi Leonard showed up for the people that paid the premium for him. As for tonight, I expect the same thing again, but with a lower ownership. It’s certainly clear that today’s slate will feature ownership spread at the SF position from the names of Kevin Durant, Robert Covington, & TJ Warren, so its safe to say off the bat that this is definitely a pivot play that will set you apart from the crowd in a good way. Yesterday’s game against the mediocre Knicks was a disappointment to say the least, so look for the Spurs and Leonard to come in tonight’s matchup with Indy with vengeance making a statement that they are a force to be reckoned with in the Western Conference and last game was a fluke. Personally, I love this matchup with Paul George and no Thaddeus Young and while others won’t see this, with the spread at only -4, it has close game written all over it. Leonard is definitely a target in this position with the minutes being there and worth the premium as you could see him flash his 50+ FDP upside tonight. Don’t ignore him tonight.
Also Consider: Kevin Durant, Wilson Chandler (If Healthy), Robert Covington, TJ Warren, & Andre Iguodala
Frank Kaminsky |$4,800| vs PHI
A lot of positives are on Kaminsky’s side tonight. 1) He will be going against a weak Philly team sans Joel Embiid and now Jahlil Okafor. 2) Cody Zeller (Quad) will be ruled out tonight. 3) He’s below $5k and provides upside in peripheral categories. You saw it last matchup against the Clippers, he is triple-double threat when he starts and gets the minutes and by starting at the 5 tonight, he should be getting a lot of boards along with shooting some 3’s here and there. In the end, there’s really nothing else to say about Kaminsky as I expect him to be really chalky, but definitely worth it. With that being said, for GPP’s you could definitely target Marvin Williams here as he will go severely overlooked and is in a similar situation Kaminsky finds himself in.
NOTE: Expect a chalky PF position for tonight’s slate. I’m predicting ownership to be spread around from Nerlens Noel, Dario Saric, Frank Kaminsky, & Anthony Davis.
Also Consider: Anthony Davis, Nikola Jokic, Paul Milsap (Elite GPP Play), Al-Farouq Aminu, Nerlens Noel, Dario Saric, Zach Randolph, James Johnson (Downgrade if Waiters plays), & Juancho Hernangomez (ELITE Play if he starts)
Dewayne Dedmon |$4,400| @ IND
Last but not least, it’s time to talk about the center position. Ok, before I start this article, I want to emphasize that this is not a clear Cash-Games play, but its definitely a high value upside play. While everyone thought David Lee would be the biggest beneficiary with Pau Gasol sidelined the last couple weeks, surprisingly, the uprising of Dewayne Dedmon has come and I have kept my eye on him ever since he’s been inserted in the starting lineup for the Spurs at the 5. Dedmon has been a menace on the boards recently averaging 10.5 rebounds in the month alone in February. He has showed to flash 8x value when he gets the proper matchup and I believe he has one tonight going against a Pacers team that has allowed 30.57 FDP this season against opposing starting Centers. He’s not a strong lock for sure, but at this price, it allows you to spend up for the studs comfortable in what should be a very high scoring slate tonight. I’ll definitely have some shares of him spread around in all contests.
Also Consider: Marcin Gortat, Dwight Howard, Andre Drummond, Hassan Whiteside, Steven Adams, Marc Gasol, & Greg Monroe (GPP Upside/ Minutes are a concern)
That’s all for today, had a great time in writing this article and hopefully all of y’all get that well earned W in tonight’s juicy slate. If you haven’t already, make sure to check out the other articles on DailyFantasy305. Follow us at: @Fanduel_Bomb
