NBA DFS Breakdown 1/15/19

With the 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

Russell Westbrook ($11,600 DK, $12,000 FD): Can also target PG13 for the discount as there is a slight blowout risk, however Trae Young’s defense is among the worst in the NBA.

Giannis Antetokounmpo ($11,200 DK, $11,900 FD): Averaging around 33-12-5-2-1 in his past 4 games.

Nikola Jokic ($10,300 DK, $11,100 FD): Keep an eye on the status of Harris and Lyles as well. Usage is still above 35 in most non-blowout, wins. 

Other options to consider:

Paul George, Joel Embiid, John Collins, Victor Oladipo 

Mid-Tier Value Picks:

Dennis Schroder ($5400 DK, $5300 FD): Blowout-proof, Hawks can’t guard dynamic guards.

Kevin Huerter ($4700 DK, $5500 FD): Averaging upwards of 36 minutes per night, rebounding + assist totals are up as well. Bump down if Prince ends up playing. 

Deandre Bembry ($4500 DK, $5400 FD): Minutes + usage both trending up, check backto make sure Dedmon + Prince are out.

Other options to consider:

Wendell Carter Jr, Javale McGee, JJ Redick 

Cheap Punt Plays:

Omari Spellman ($3800 DK, $3500 FD): As long as Dedmon misses out, bump for Omari in minutes + usage.

Cory Joseph ($3300 DK, $3900 FD): Pay attention to the status of Collison, too cheap on DK.  

Other options to consider:

Jeremy Lin, Tyreke Evans
