Daily Fantasy Basketball Notes 11/19

The leaves are changing, the holiday season is upon us and it’s another week in the basketball season. What a great time of the year! Well yesterday was technically the start to the fantasy week, but tonight marks week four of the regular season.  We are light on games with only five match ups, but there is still a ton of value in players to make your lineup look like an early Christmas present.

Here are three players that I am starting and even more that I’m sitting in tonight’s games. Be sure to follow @FakeRoundball for any questions you need answered, or you can ask me (@SaidHeHadAStory) or our other writers, (@RSandersFR and @patsfever24) directly on Twitter. Now, allons-y with the picks:

 

Start ‘Em

Kevin Love vs Wizards – The Wizards are in the bottom half of the league in rebounds and points allowed. Kevin Love is currently second in rebounds and third in points. Need I say more? Regardless of how much he costs tonight in your daily league, he is a must start.

Eric Bledsoe vs Kings – While I was worried that Dragic might hurt Bledose’s production, all he has done is prove to me why he has been a top ten PG this season. Even if he can’t score 20+ like he has been doing, he will still put up assists to make up for it. The Kings are a bad backcourt with turnstile defenders, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Bledsoe has a 20+ point game.

Chandler Parsons vs Celtics – 21.0/5.4/4.0/1.0/1.0 Those are Parsons numbers the past five games. Granted, this is a result of  teams trying to limit Harden and Howard, but CP25 has taken advantage of teams playing soft defense. I expect that trend to continue and for him to get a ton of open looks tonight.

 

Sit ‘Em

James Harden vs Celtics – See Parsons above. The Celtics know that in order to have a chance to win tonight, they will have to slow down Harden. Avery Bradley might be the best backcourt defender in the NBA, so add that to Harden’s foot problems and it could be a recipe for disaster. I still think he is capable of another big game, but the uncertainty is keeping me away from starting him tonight.

Chris Bosh vs Hawks - Bosh seems to have found his way out of the big three in Miami. He has been extremely pedestrian lately and has not grabbed more than five rebounds in his last three games. He matches up tonight against Horford who is bigger and stronger in the paint. Miami may by 5-1 at home, but Bosh needs another big game before he can be considered for any lineup.

Anyone on the Kings not named Cousins vs Suns – The Kings are a bad team. There is no way around it. When a team only has two players that average more than eleven points (why Thomas doesn’t start, I will never understand) that is a recipe for disaster. Boogie continues to put up great numbers, but until he gets some help, he is the only player worth starting.
