NBA DFS Breakdown October 26th

With NBA in particular the longer you wait and the closer to lock your game theory is, the more accurate and powerful the analysis will be. With late-swap back in the picture, some of the best lineup decisions you will ever make can happen with mere minutes before lock..

Top-Tier Targets


Anthony Davis ($11,600 DK, $13,000 FD) Davis is my favorite GPP play of the night. Given the high-level of play the Pelicans have shown so far, there is definitely a small amount of blowout risk in this one, however I am envisioning another massive AD game and want plenty of exposure. 


Chris Paul ($9200 DK, $9700 FD) Harden will miss this game, which provides an ample usage boost to CP3. The revenge narrative is a little bonus, and I don’t usually like to target against the lockdown defense of Pat Beverley, however with Harden out CP3 and EG are excellent plays. 


John Wall ($8500 DK, $9600 FD) This game will potentially have the most points scored on the slate, and I prefer Wall to Beal tonight as Bradley is a little banged up. Porter is also too cheap, and the two make for a decent game stack with Fox to run it back.


Other options to consider: 

Karl-Anthony Towns, Kemba Walker


Mid-Tier Value Picks:


Clint Capela ($6700 DK, $8100 FD) CP3-Capela is one of my favorite correlation plays on the slate. AD is the expensive option, then Capela for the mid-tier, and down to Wendell Carter, who we will discuss shortly, for the low-end. 


Nicholas Batum ($5600 DK, $6400 FD) His usage is shooting up lately, and his minutes are on the rise. Look for Batum to be involved in a very high-scoring affair with the pathetic Bulls defense. Blowout or not, Batum is safe for Cash and GPP.


Other options to consider:

Carmelo Anthony, Jabari Parker 


Cheap Punt Plays:


Wendell Carter Jr ($4300 DK, $6000 FD) Portis joins Markannen and Dunn on the shelf for the Bulls, which leaves plenty of rebounds up for grabs in Chi-town. Carter has already been getting starter’s minutes, and will continue to gain good experience, as well as garbage stats as the Bulls are typically involved in a lot of shootouts. Jabari Parker also has a nice bump in usage this evening.



Gerald Green ($3400 DK, $3700 FD) Too cheap, and receives a minutes boost with Gordon moving into the starting lineup to replace Harden.


Other options to consider:

Damyean Dotson
