There’s not much Fantasy Basketball action to be had tonight, but we’ll still try to tackle the two game NBA DFS slate and sort through the Fantasy Basketball Top Plays!
We’re going to do things a little differently today since there are only two games to choose from. Instead of going position by position, we’re just going to highlight 3 players that I am already looking to put in my lineup and 3 that I’m not that excited about. Friday we’ll get back to the normal Fantasy Basketball Top Plays layout.
Fantasy Basketball Top Plays
DeAndre Jordan, Mavericks – The Dallas big man should hold a significant advantage in this game since the Mavs are third in rebounding percentage while the Clippers are just 16th. Jordan sits seventh in rebounding chances per game and the Clippers are also giving up the second most real life points to centers. Jordan should walk into a double-double and also has the revenge factor working for him after he spent the first 10 seasons of his career in Los Angeles.
Patrick Beverly, Clippers – The veteran has seen an increase in minutes these past three games and has turned it on production-wise. His fantasy points have increased in four straight games and he actually had a double double last game. That’s likely not going to happen again but he’s still at a price point that makes sense as a nice punt option.
Montrezl Harrell, Clippers – Harrell is one of my favorite players to use for fantasy and anytime he’s under $6,000 on DK, I’m interested. The minutes are never going to be anything special but his FPPM are so high, you’re still going to get 6x. Dallas is giving up the eighth highest field goal percentage within five feet, so Harrell should be able to tackle that weakness.
Fantasy Basketball Top Fades
* The options are so limited that fades shouldn’t be taken to an extreme at all.
Chris Paul, Rockets – I don’t know if I’ve played Paul all that much this season and tonight likely continues that trend. The Rockets are on a back to back and even though Paul played well last night, back to back games can’t be terribly easy for Paul so far. I would rather spend the $8,200 price tag on other players tonight, despite the pace up spot.

Harrison Barnes, Mavericks – I could end up playing some Barnes just due to game environment but unless he scores 25-30 points, he likely doesn’t pay his price tonight. Barnes has never piled on a lot of stats other than points but his rebounds and assists have dropped by a significant chunk this season. There’s not much of a reason to expect that to change tonight.
Lou Williams, Clippers – This is kind of cheating because Sweet Lou might not even play. However, if he does I still would be very leery of him. Generally speaking, when players come back from soft tissue injuries like a hamstring that cost them more than a game or two, I’m out on their first game back. The risk of re-injury is too high for me and you certainly can’t afford a low score with so few options. That game packs plenty of potential but there are better spots to chase.
