Taco’s NBA DFS FanDuel Preview 3/13

Intro to Tacos write up

What’s happening everyone taco is back. First of all I would like to be honest and transparent to everyone who reads this write up. I have been playing NBA DFS for two years now. I know that sounds like I’m lacking experience. With that said you should also know that I’ve won more money in NBA Dfs than I have ever won playing NFL DFS. To be honest that is slightly embarrassing being as I’ve been playing fantasy football for about 8 years now.. What I’m getting at people is that I’m good at basketball! Hope everyone enjoys the write up.

How the article works

I go through each team and choose players who I think are relevant to the slate putting a ? emoji next to the players that will more than likely end up in my lineup, and a ?for the players that I like more than most. The reason why I’m using emojis is because I don’t always have the time in the day to do a write up on every player I like. This should allow the reader (you guys) to know who my favorite players are without having to do an extensive write up. The teams will be listed from top to bottom with the highest implied team totals at the top and the lowest at the bottom. Next to each team will be the spread, then that teams implied total. If implied total and spread are not out yet I will put TBD.

Dallas mavericks TBD

PG – yogi Ferrell 4500 – spreads haven’t come out yet, but I’m sure Dallas is significantly favored to win this game. Yogi has been getting clos to 30 min a game. Might be a sneaky play at that price.

SF – Harrison Barnes 6500


PG – russel Westbrook 12000

SF – Paul George 9000

PF – Carmelo Anthony

lines haven’t come out yet, but this game should almost certainly have OKC favored by at least 10.

Orlando magic TBD

This is a garbage game, you don’t need to play anyone from here. If I had to it would be vucevic at 8600.

Cleveland -7, 118.5

PG – George Hill 4700

SG – Kyle korver 4400 – played around 28 minutes with hood out.

SF – Lebron James 12500

PF – Larry nance jr 7800 ?

NO pelicans -4.5, 117.3

PF – Anthony Davis 12900

SG – Jrue holiday 8900 – seems to produce better with Anthony Davis on the floor.

Ramon Rondo 5900

Denver Nuggets -2, 116.5

SF – Wilson Chandler 5000

SG – Gary harris 6500 ?

PG – Jamal Murray 6400 ?

LAC -6.5, 115.5

SG – Lou Williams 8400

PF – Tobias Harris 8800

PG – Milos Teodosic 4600

C – Deandre Jordan 8200

LAL 2, 114.5

PG – Isaiah Thomas 6700

PG – Lonzo Ball 7800

PF – Kyle kuzma 7000

C – Brook Lopez 6700 ?

Toronto Raptors -9.5, 114.3

C – Jonas Valanciunas 7300

PF – Kyle Lowry 8000

Charlotte Hornets 4.5, 112.8

PG – Kemba Walker 8300

SG – Nicolas batum 7000

PF – Marvin Williams 4300

PF – Frank Kaminsky 4300, only if Williams is held out for some reason.

Pheonix suns 7, 111.5

SG – Devin Booker 8200 ?

SF – T.J. Warren 7000

Washington Wizards -4, 110

PG – Thomas satoransky 5800

SG – Bradley Beal 8400

Chicago Bulls 6.5, 109

SF – Denzel Valentine 5400

PF – Lauri Markkaken 6100

Philadelphia 76er’s

PG – TJ McConnell 3800, tough matchup, but he’s too cheap

C – Joel Embiid ?

Minnesota 4, 106

SF – Nemanja Bjelica 5800 ?

Brooklyn 9.5, 104.8

SF – Dante Cunningham 3600, only if Jarrett Allen sits

PF – Rondae Hollis-Jefferson 5600, only if Jarrett Allen sits

C – Jarret Allen 4600, obviously only if he plays. He’s a risky play at that because of his foot soreness, but you can’t beat the price.

Utah -8, 103

SF – Joe Ingles 6400

Indiana 5.5, 102.8

SG – Victor Oladipo 9500

SF – Bojan Bogdanovic 5600 ?

Detroit Pistons 8, 95

Don’t like anyone from this team

San Antonio TBD

SF – Rudy Gay 4400 ?, with no Aldridge and this game likely turning into somewhat of a blowout I think Rudy Gay could see close to 30 minutes in a plus matchup.

Atlanta TBD

SF – Taurean Prince 6100, I can’t stand recommending this guy because there is so much variance in his production. With that said he is the guy seeing most of the run with bazemore out.

PG – Tyler Dorsey 3800 ?, makes a nice value play with bazemore off the court.

New York knicks

PF – Luke Kornet 3500 ?, only if Enes Kanter is ruled out. If he’s not you can’t play him.

Side note: Its a large slate today, but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy one. Definitely keep an eye on the news. We’re going to need all the value we can find on this slate to make a decent lineup. Good luck everyone. ?
