GPP Talk – 2/13/17

Another crazy weekend of basketball.  I definitely need to trust my gut and initial roster construction better going forward, as we’re going to have a lot more last minute news to react to.  The Suns and Bulls were so trappy and I fell for it hook line and sinker, as did many.  It’s so easy to take these min-price players that should see massive upticks in minutes and usage.  I mean, somebody has to score, right?  Tell that to Brandon Knight or Taj Gibson, etc. etc.  Anyways, let’s get to some of my favorite, high upside, GPP-only picks for tonight’s 11-game slate.

12/6 Must Haves

Wesley Mathews ($5,600): is coming off a 40 minute game in which he had 36.7 fanduel points against his former team. Wesley now has an ever more favorable matchup verse the Denver Nuggets who are known to be a fast pace team and play little to no defense. For $5.6k Wesley is a great mid tear option for your cash game lineups. With JJ Barea and Deron Williams still sidelined, the offense will revolve around  veteran forwards Harrison Barnes and Wesley Mathews. I’m expecting close to 6x value in this outing tonight in Denver. Continue reading “12/6 Must Haves”

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”

Top Fades and Pivots – 2/6/17

Hope everyone enjoyed the Super Bowl last night, which turned into an instant classic.  Now let’s get back to the grind and start a new week of NBA DFS success.  Here are my notes for today’s 11-game slate and top fade/pivot. Continue reading “Top Fades and Pivots – 2/6/17”

Top Fades and Pivots – 2/4/17

Last night was crazy with the late scratch of Jimmy Butler.  I had him in all my FanDuel lineups.  Luckily, he was 40% owned in my 50/50s, which gave me some hope.  I sweat it out and somehow, I managed to squeeze in 50/50 cash lines.  I’m hoping for a more normal night tonight, but already news about Memphis resting guys is breaking as I write this.  Here are my fades and pivots for tonight.
