Taco’s NBA DFS FanDuel Preview 3/9

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 update via twitter later in the day.

Washington Wizards TBD

PG – Thomas Satoransky 5800 ?

SG – Bradley Beal 8600 ?

SF – Kelly Oubre Jr. ? – only a money play if Otto Porter jr is out.

PF – Markieff Morris 5700

Sacramento Kings

PG – Frank Mason 3900 ?- if De’aron Fox is ruled out.

SG – Bogdan Bogdanovic 5800

PF – Skal Labissere 6500 – only play him if Willy Cauley Stein is ruled out.

Denver Nuggets -6.5, 118

PG – Jamal Murray GTD 6200 – If Murray is ruled out make sure to check and see if any other point guards should get run for Denver. I update later in the day who I think will be the main beneficiary later via twitter.

PG – Monte Morris 3500 – Only played in one Nba game this year vs the rockets where he put up 29.4 fantasy points in only 21 minutes. Keep a close eye on Murrays status, and keep a close eye on who Denvers starting 5 are. If Morris gets the start I think he’s a ? play at 3500 vs the Lakers.

SG – Will Barton 7100

SG – Gary Harris 6700

SG – Devin Harris 3600 – Once again keep an eye on the news, harris could be in line to start at point guard if Jamal Murray is ruled out. If that’s the case than he’s a money play.

SF – Wilson Chandler 5000 – Don’t think you need to use Chandler on this large slate of games, but he has a very favorable matchup and will probably get more run with Murray potentially being out.

PF – Paul Millsap 6500 ?

Golden state warriors -4, 115.8

PG – Shaun Livingston 3500 – He has a tough matchup and will share minutes with Cook and Nick young. If it was a small slate of games it would be a no brainer, but in this large slate of games I think Livingston is a nice fade that will probably have high ownership.

SG – Klay Thomspson 6500 ?- will almost certainly get more run with Curry off the court.

SG – Nick young 3500 – I feel the same way about nick young as I feel about Shaun Livingston. Don’t think you will have to use him today. With that said I would only use young if I had a sick lineup and all I had left was 3500 at the SG spot and there was no else available.

SF – Kevin Durant 9800 – With Curry off the floor Durant is the main benificiary. He seems to take over the game without Curry. Even though it’s not a great matchup, Durant is pretty much matchup proof. Fade at your own risk. ?

PF – Draymond Green 7700 ??

LAC -1, 115.8

PG – Milos Teodosic 4500 – If you have to go there he’s a safe 20 points with no upside.

PG – Austin Rivers 6300

SG – Lou Williams 8100

PF – Tobias Harris 8400

C – Deandre Jordan 8000 ?

side note, Rivers, Harris, and Williams are all priced a little too high for my liking on this large slate.

Cleveland 1, 114.8

SF – LeBron James 12500 – priced too high for my liking, but if you can fit him in he could easily reach 60 fantasy points.

PF – Larry Nance 7800 ?

Milwaukee Bucks -10, 112

PG – Eric Bledsoe 7600 ?

SF – Gianni’s Antetokounpo 11800 – could be a blowout, but the Greek freak is in a nice spot.

Portland trailblazers 4, 111.8

C – Josuf Nurkic 6000 – usually the warriors leave big men in the dust, but it should be noted that last time out against them he played 30 min and put up 40 fantasy points. Golden state without Curry will probably play at a slower pace as well. I think he makes a nice Gpp play.

PG – Damien Lillard 9700

SG – CJ McCollum 7300

LAL 6.5, 111.5

PG – Lonzo Ball 7500

PF – Kyle Kuzma 6800 ?

C – Brook Lopez 5900

Houston Rockets -1.5, 111

C – Clint Capela 7200 – only a Gpp option for me tonight because he is a little banged up. If he wasn’t he would be a solid play in all formats. Keep an eye on his status if he doesn’t play, some nice value may arise.

Detroit Pistons -8,110.8

PF – Blake Griffin 8600 ?

C – Andre Drummond 10200

SF – Reggie Bullock 5600

Toronto Raptors 1.5, 109.5

SG – Demar Derozan 8200

C – Jonas Valenciuanas 6700 ?

Indiana Pacers -8, 109

PG – Corey Joseph 5500

SG – Victor Oladipo 9900

SF – Bojan Bogdanovic 5600 ?

PF – Thaddeus Young 5800

C – Myles Turner 6300

Utah jazz -9, 103.8

don’t really like anyone from Utah tonight.

Chicago Bulls 8, 102.8

don’t like anyone from the bulls

New York knicks 10, 102

C – Enes Kanter 6900

Atlanta Hawks 8, 101

C – Dewayne Dedmond 5800

Memphis Grizzlies 9, 94.8

PG – Xavier Rathan-Mayes 4000 – There is nobody left but this guy. Still don’t like the matchup against Utah. I think we’ll be able to find better value later in the day.

SG – Ben Mclemore 4800

SG – Kobi Simmons 4500

SF – Dillon Brooks 5200

PF – JaMychal Green 6100 – don’t use him unless Jerrell martin is out. Even then he’s not a lock in my book.

Side note – I don’t usually like to target Utah, but with all the injuries on Memphis we can’t ignore the value. If better value arises I will probably fade all the Memphis guys.

New Orleans Pelicans TBD

SG – Jrue Holiday 8500 – Going to get a ton of minutes with no Anthony Davis on the court. ?

SF – E’twaun Moore 4700

PF – Nikola Mirotic 6700

Orlando Magic TBD

PG – Shelvin Mack 3700 ?if Augustine is ruled out.

SF – Mario Hezonja 4300, with Fournier out I think Hezonja gets some extra run.

C – Nikola Vucevic 9200 ?
