Taco’s NBA DFS FanDuel Preview 3/8
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.
OKC, -10, 119.8
Golden state warriors -11, 116
PF – Draymond Green 7700 ?
Charlotte hornets -6.5, 111.5
Kemba Walker 9000 – price is too high for kemba, but he’s in a nice spot. Might be a nice Gpp option if your looking to fade Westbrook if your worried about OKC blowing them out. Full disclosure I don’t think it’s a good idea too fade Westbrook being as he put up over 70 fantasy points last time out against the suns.
Dwight Howard 8400 ?
Nicolas batum 7300 ?
Phoenix suns +10, 109.8
PG – Elfrid Payton 7300 ?matchup doesn’t look good on paper but Payton put up over 50 fantasy points last time out against OKC. Can’t ignore that.
Boston -2, 109.5
PG – Kyrie Irving 8400 – didn’t play last game do to left knee soreness. That makes me a little concerned. Even with my concern I like Irving in this spot. Last time out against a healthy Minnesota team he put up over 40 and according to vegas the Celtics implied total is about 5 points more than they usually score.
Minnesota +2, 107.5
Boston is an all around tough matchup, unless extreme value comes i out I probably won’t be rostering anyone from Minnesota.
Brooklyn +6.5, 105
C – Jarrett Allen 4900 – Brooklyn has been playing in some very fast paced games as of late leaving Allen in the dust, but I believe he hits his value easily in this matchup at a very low ownership. ?
SF – DeMarre carroll 6300 – been playing well as of late, but last time out against Charlotte he only put up 17 fantasy points playing over 30 minutes. Either way he is in a good spot against Charlotte who ranked 24th at defending the SF position.
PG – Spencer Dinwiddie 6500 – a little too high of a price for dinwiddie, but I think he can get you 30 in this matchup.
SF – Allen Crabbe 4800 – only if no value arises before the end of the day.
San Antonio 11, 105
PF – LaMarcus Aldridge 8200 ?- with gasol out it should give Aldridge enough usage to hit value.
PF – Davis Bertans 4400 – with gasol out I believe Bertans benefits the most. I don’t think Lauverne is a good play against this fast paced golden state team. Especially if it turns into a blowout.
Backcourt – I’m not in love with San Antonio’s backcourt even though they should be playing at a much faster pace than normal. I think Popovich will try to slow the game down as much as they can which takes me off any of the guards. If I had to play a guard from San Antonio it would probably be Danny green priced at 4800 or ginoboli at 4300.
Philadelphia 76er’s 0, 104.5
PG – TJ McConnell 3800 – if bellinelli is ruled out McConnell is a must play for me unless better value arises. ?
PF – Dario Saric 6300 – not a bad price on sario. Don’t see a lot of upside but I think he can get you 30 tonight.
Miami heat, 0, 104.5
SG – Dwayne wade 5100 – I like wade a lot more priced under 5k and the reassurance that Ellington and Tyler Johnson are out. With that said Wade seems to get anywhere from 20-25 minutes a game no matter Who is in or out. Also can’t ignore the fact that he almost put up a 40 burger playing only 25 minutes last time out against philly.
PG – Gordon dragic 6700 – not in love with him but you could do worse on this small slate of games.
