Daily Fantasy Basketball FanDuel Cash – Saturday Oct 27th
Welcome back to my FanDuel daily fantasy basketball cash game first look article. We will be breaking down the best cash game plays this morning for a first look analysis to see where we can find the edge on the slate. There’s a bunch of injury news I will outline before some sections to see how it could influence the slate. As always if you don’t want to monitor yourself follow me on twitter @dfs_joey. I will update you on plays and of course give my analysis as to how I think it will affect my lineups. I wish you all the best on this Saturday hope you guys win all the money!!!
Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks – Point Guard
Rajon Rondo is back from his suspension which means Lonzo Ball will probably see less minutes and have his fantasy points drop which will make him tough to play at that price even in a good match-up and on his birthday unless you want a fun birthday narrative GPP play. Other than that no real injury news to look out for besides Dunn is still out and will be out for 4-6 weeks.
Mike Conley 7.8k: Conley will get to go up against Phoenix who is no real threat on defense. Isaiah Canaan who is will be matched up against him for the majority of the game. The Suns are giving up 24.4 points and 8.1 assist a game to point guards. Conley has really shown up this season as the force he once was. HE had to make people remember how good he actually was. He was one of the first players to receive that max deal and get $30 million a year. I don’t see he slowing down at all this game and both teams have been bad this year so I don’t suspect a blowout.
Cameron Payne 5.6k: He’s gets an amazing matchup vs Trae Young who really needs to work on his defense. If you read my article consistently you will figure out I will be targeting him a lot this season. Payne has been doing well in Dunn’s absence. As a starter hes averaging a 20% usage rate to go along with his 13 points and 4 assists a game. He also always seems to find a steal and with fanduel those defensive stats are huge.
D.J Augustin 4.4k: He’s been getting consistent minutes and even blowout minutes that’s great news for Kevin to make him cash game playable in a game tha could get out of hand late in the game.
Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks -S hooting Guard
We’ve got some injury news for the shooting guards. It looks like Devin Booker will be out. Wayne Ellington is probable for tonight’s game which could hurt McGruder’s value with minutes being stolen there. Luke Kennard appears to be out which frees up 10-12 minutes off the bench we will have to see through out the day who it looks like those minutes will got to.
Zach Lavine 8.4k: I’m really interested in this game it could be a sneaky guard stack game for GPPs but in cash we want to at least have a couple of these guys. Lavine is averaging the 5th most points in the league, his 30 point game streak has finally come to an end btu he might start a new streak tonight
Rodney McGruder 5.2k: Well here we are again; it looks like McGruder is in play again at least they are starting to raise his price a little. Any of player that has had production like this would be 7k but we continue to get him at a discount. Wayne Ellington could influence this play so I’ll have updates later.
Wayne Ellington 3.8k: I feel like I should add this guy just in case he plays and sees the minutes he dd last year. I know I’m all for McGruder, but Ellington at that price if he is getting the minutes is a steal. Last year he averaged 26.2 minutes with 11.2 points 3 rebounds and 1 assist. The scoring is the key for him to help with get you those fantasy points. Make sure to monitor news on this one. GPP Pivot: Jamal Crawford
Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks – Small Forward
Giannis Antetokounmpo 12.3k: They Bucks just blew out the Timberwolves and there is a good chance they may blowout the Magic. It was interesting to see him only play 23 minutes when he hasn’t been effected too much by blowouts in the past. It was probably because he is playing in a back to back and wanted to make sure he was good to go for this game. If give the minutes Giannis always has an amazing floor and a 70+ ceiling. Give him the minutes and he will crush the magic.
I’m hesitant to play Lebron in cash with Rajon Rondo back. I think Rondo and Lonzo Ball both will have a big usage rate which will cut down on the need for James to need to carry the team and need to do everything which is one of the reasons why he has been such a staple in cash game lineups in the past.
Deandre Bembry 4.5k: The Hawks are without a PF again with Poythress out. Bembry is coming off a huge game of 11/16/5/1/2 for 44.7 fanduel points. I don’t think he repeats that production but we know the ceiling is there. He will be facing a Chicago team who will be without Portis another game so Bembry has a shot to be a great play and cash considerable. GPP Pivot Bojan Bogdanovic
Mikal Bridges 3.5k: We saw Bridges play the entire rest of the game when Devin Booker came out late in the 3rd and the entire 4th quarter. I could see him receiving a huge uptick in minutes this game with Booker’s huge amount of minutes up for grabs he could come in a play 20+ minutes.
Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks – Power Forward
Anthony Davis 13.2k: He has a back to back the good thing is they are back to back home games so he will not be traveling. Davis is actually does very well on 0 days rests. In 13 games with 0 rest days Davis averages 30.3 PPG and 11.3 RPG 3.2 blocks per game. GPP Pivot: LaMarcus Aldridge
Kyle Kuzma 7.1k: Kuz gets one more game with Ingram. He’s playing against the same team he just put up 37 on in 45 minutes in a thrilling overtime game. Now he is back to SA where he should be able to dominate once more.
Josh Jackson 4K: With Devin Booker our they will need Josh Jackson to play a bigger role in the offense. Going up against Memphis who’s has struggled against SF/PF small ball players he could be in store for big minutes in a good matchup.
Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks – Center
Andre Drummond 9.3k: He will be in a great matchup against the Celtics after just posting a 20/20. He should be able to match that production and even ad some blocks against a team who likes to get inside for layups. If Drummond is in the right position he could put up some nice numbers .

Javale McGee 7k: So I finally did it McGee is now in my cash consideration. I’m hoping it doesn’t come to this but I have to mention him. He’s been so consistently good. He’s not one of those boom or bust guys. We all know from last year that McGee was a points per minute monster now that he’s able to play big minutes he is showing how much of a force he really is.
Cristiano Felicio 3.7k: With Bobby Portis sidelined he saw 30 minutes which only amounted to 17 FanDuel points. He needs the big minutes to be relevent tonight.i could see him getting another big workload tonight with the Bulls really not giving a ton of run to Wendell Cater. It might have been because of the back to back but we will see as news comes out throughout the day.
