Slate-Talk 2/8: Player Spotlight

After a weak 3-game slate on FanDuel yesterday, I don’t think you can find a person who is more excited and confident about today’s 12 game slate than I am. Couple of things to note that make a huge impact on tonight’s slate are 1) The news on who’s starting for the Kings, 2) If Jimmy Butler is ruled out (EDIT: He is OUT), and 3) if Klay Thompson, Kenneth Faried will be available to play tonight. Besides that, a lot of research has been done ahead of time and with this article I will look to apply all the research I have put into the past couple of hours. Let’s get into it!

NBA Thoughts: Safe Stud Plays

John Wall ($10,800) : The Washington Wizards, the league’s most hottest team, are the favorites tonight heading into Cleveland. John Wall has dropped at least 50 FDP in three of his last five games and tonight, and in a game where a statement should be made, a 50+ FDP game should be no problem for him. In Wall’s 19 games he faced the Cavs, he averages 20.2 ppg, 4.6 rebounds and 9.4 assists. Something noticeable to point out here is that this is his best numbers against any team in the Eastern Conference. The Cavaliers themselves are one of the worst teams in the league defending the point and in a potential game sans Kyrie Irving, whoever has the misfortune of guarding John Wall will definitely struggle tonight. Wall is a safe target if deciding to spend up at the point tonight, but I would rather use him tournaments than cash games tonight. Continue reading “NBA Thoughts: Safe Stud Plays”

1/30 Must Haves

Mike Conley ($7,500)– My first have in tonight’s slate is Mike Conley. Ok, ok, I know, Conley had just been an “OK” player as of late. He hasn’t reached the 40 Fanduel Mark in 6 straight games, but tonight I absolutely LOVE the matchup against the Suns who are VERY weak against opposing point guards and pretty much all positions. Even though Mike Conley is our fist Must Have of the night, I expect people to over-look him tonight because of his previous few game games on his game log. Mike Conley WILL reach the 40 point Fanduel mark tonight, mark my words.
