NBA DFS Playbook – 11/5

Guards:

Stephen Curry ($10,000 FanDuel)

Well if you’re going with one high price guy tonight, I would suggest running with Curry. He’s putting up an insane amount of fantasy points right now (25.3 PPG 7.0 APG 6.7 RPG) and gets to go up against Chris Paul, don’t think he’ll have a bit more motivation to try and show him up? Curry is excelling in the new system and should continue to be a top fantasy player.

Tony Wroten ($7,100 FanDuel)

Ever so quietly, Wroten is posting 37.1 fantasy points per game. If the Curry price is too much for you then I would advise taking a shot with Wroten. The 76ers are matched up with the Orlando Magic tonight, so you know the clash of the titans. Wroten should benefit going up against another young and inexperienced squad much like his own team.

 

Forwards:

Jared Sullinger ($6,600 FanDuel)

The former Buckeye is giving you 30 fantasy points a night and for just that cost, it’s a pretty good value. Tonight he’s going up against a Raptors front court that is somewhat lacking so I’m predicting a double-double tonight for “Sully”. Surprisingly he’s averaging over two blocks per game but expect that number to gradually decrease as the season moves along.

Markieff Morris ($6,300 FanDuel)

Here’s another guy outproducing his cost but shhh let’s just keep that between us. Morris is currently putting up 31.7 fantasy points a night by averaging 17 PPG along with 7.8 RPG. Tonight he goes against the Grizzlies, a bit tougher of a match up compared to Sullinger but he’s been producing so far this season against other solid front courts. So I don’t see why not again tonight.

Center:

Marc Gasol ($8,200)

Okay so there’s a few big guys I like in the Grizzlies-Suns match up. Gasol has been a bigger part of the offense so far this season and is going against a smaller front court. He’s probably the safest play for a double-double at the position tonight and should continue his very impressive run. If $8,200 is a bit steep then I would roll with Roy Hibbert at $6,200.

Flex:

Kevin Martin ($6,000)

If you still have enough left for your last spot, get him. He’s going against a Brooklyn backcourt that shouldn’t be too hard to score against and is currently averaging almost 31 fantasy points a night. Taj Gibson, Alec Burks and Trey Burke should also be considered.
