When I see stuff about the DFS industry I always try to pass it along.  This is a nice read if you have the time.   With the holiday coming up I hope everyone has a safe and nice Thanksgiving.

On Saturday night we have a decent 9 game slate:

Point Guards

I don’t think you have to pay the John Wall ($9,600) price tag tonight at PG.  Kyle Lowry ($7,800) is going up against Kyrie Irving ($8,800) who doesn’t really like to play defense.  I think Lowry is a bit under priced and with a O/U around 211,  it’s nice to get a stud PG in a game like this.

Mario Chalmers ($5,800) has been really good the last four games with Dwyane Wade out.  Averaging 35.5 mins, 19 ppg, and 32.56 Draft Kings points over that span.   The match up against Orlando is just OK on paper but for a PG under 6k getting those kind of minutes sign me up. 

Tony Wroten ($5,600) started at SG on Friday night.  If he keeps starting then you can’t pass up the price here.

Flip Saunders finally wised up and decided to start Mo Williams ($4,700).  He faces a Kings team that isn’t good at stopping the PG.  Even though his price as risen he is still a nice value.

 

Shooting Guards

I am not seeing much value as of right now at SG.  That could change as we get closer to gametime.  If you want to pay up then James Harden ($10,200) is your man in a fast paced game against Dallas. 

If you want some cheap exposure under 6k on the Knicks against the 76ers then J.R. Smith ($5,700) and Iman Shumpert ($5,200) are fine plays.  Both didn’t play good last game against the Timberwolves but the 76ers coming to town is a good cure for a bad last game.

I don’t like Bradley Beal’s price tag ($6,200) if he continues to come off the bench and get under 30 minutes.

Also, if Popovich decides to sit Manu Ginobili on the 2nd game of a back-to-back then Danny Green ($4,600) is a nice punt option

 

Small Forwards

Carmelo Anthony ($9,500)  is playing at home against the winless 76ers that are dreadful at guarding SF’s.  When I target Melo I like to play him on Draft Kings because it’s a non-efficiency site.  If you don’t want to pay up for LeBron James ($10,200), Melo saves you money in a great match up.

San Antonio will be on the second half of a back-to-back.

With Kevin Martin sidelined with a broken wrist, Corey Brewer ($5,200) is a bit more then I would like to spend for him.  Andrew Wiggins ($4,500) and Shabazz Muhammad ($4,500) are better values but I’m not crazy about any of these three players.

If you’re looking to save salary to get in a stud or two in the lineup then P.J. Tucker ($3,600) is a nice option.  Coming off of a 30 min, 27.25 Draft Kings points against the Pistons on Wednesday and backed it up with another nice game Friday night against the high school team we call the 76ers.

Also, I like the prices on Rudy Gay ($7,900) and Tobias Harris ($7,200).

 

Power Forwards

There isn’t much to like about this position tonight.  It’s Anthony Davis and his nosebleed price tag of ($11,400) or a bunch of players I really don’t like.  Maybe some news at tip off will change some things.

I think Kevin Love is overpriced at ($8,600).

I like Tim Duncan ($8,100) if he plays but if he doesn’t suit up on the second game of a back-to-back then Boris Diaw ($5,000) is another punt option at PF.

If Dwight Howard is out then Tarik Black ($4,300) should start for him.  He played 35 mins last time out.  I wouldn’t expect much more than the 19 Draft Kings points he had last game when he started.   It’s a tough match up against Tyson Chandler.

 

Centers

DeMarcus Cousins ($10,300) continues to play at a high level. The Timberwolves don’t have anyone who can slow him down.  Now if you’re paying up for Anthony Davis it’s going to be hard to fit Boogie in.

A nice pivot at a lower price is Nikola Vucevic at ($8,600). He has been a rock solid producer in the high 30’s to low 40’s Draft Kings points pretty much all year long.  Play him with confidence.

Gorgui Dieng ($6,500) is still starting for the injured  Nickola Pekovic but I think he is priced right.  I would rather save $400 and roster Tyson Chandler’s ($6,100) if Dwight Howard is out.

 

Get over to Draft Kings and get in on some NBA action.  They have games at all different price points.

    hey man, how’s it going? i outbid someone for josh smith and was thinking of offering him and jordan hill for derrick favors. he’s pretty savvy, is this worth offering or do you think that i am not close? thanks!

    Did you say Josh Smith and Jordan Hill for Derrick Favors?

    • miles proudfoot says:

      @danb: uh yes…i’m thinking by your response that i am dreaming haha.

        @miles proudfoot: Which side are you on in this trade?

        • miles proudfoot says:
          (link)

          @danb: oh sorry, i would be offering smith and hill.

            @miles proudfoot: Have you lost your mind? Are you a Utah Jazz or Derrick Favors fan that you want to give that much up?

            • miles proudfoot. says:
              (link)

              @danb: ya I think I did for the moment. I think just overall vastly underrated both of those guys, especially Smith who has been all over the place. George Hill is on waivers and I could use a point even with limited assists, so figured that would also clear a spot without just dropping someone. Thanks for the quick response and advice.

    Hey Dan.

    Would you trade your Brandon Jennings and Greg Monroe for Andre Drummond?

    I’m in a 10 team 7 cat yahoo H2H league. Thanks!

    • danb

      danb says:

      @kevin: No way. Unless one of the cats are fouls then Drummond is your man

  11. Wen says:

    Hi Danb, should I hang onto Kelly Olynyk or drop him for Danilo Gallinari once he plays better? Who has better long term value? Thanks for advice.

    • danb

      danb says:
      (link)

      @Wen: I would keep the starter Olynyk for now. Gallinari’s mins are up and down right now. Plus you never know what Brain Shaw is going to do in Denver.

      • Wen says:
        (link)

        @danb: Danilo Gallinari has been playing well enough 3 games in a row now and minutes are rising, so tempting… I don’t think I can drop anyone else in my team below. Maybe Redick, but I need Guard position.

        Stephen Curry, Nicolas Batum, Jamal Crawford, J.J. Redick, Courtney Lee
        Chris Bosh, Marc Gasol, Derrick Favors, Marcin Gortat, David West, Zach Randolph, Greg Monroe, Kelly Olynyk, Draymond Green

        • danb

          danb says:
          (link)

          @Wen: If you want to drop Gallinari for Reddick then I’m fine with it. They are kinda of the same player. I would try to make a trade 1st.

    Hey danb, wassup man. I have a question for ya.
    Should i drop tjones in 12er? Im already stashing rubio although im in the top half of the league but no timetable and nerve damage is bad. Is it a bad move to jump ship?
    Im thinking of taking a flier on kyle o quinn or james johnson or jameer nelson.. Or just stream the spot.

    Beverley and G.Hill is in FA so maybe no one would stash Jones too.

    • danb

      danb says:

      @Tyler: There is nothing on the wire that your told me that makes me want to drop T Jones

      • Tyler says:

        @danb:
        Got ya! Im just worried this injury might take til ASB.
