Daily Fantasy Basketball Plays for 2-24-14
I break down players into three groups: Cheap Plays, Mid-Tier Values, and Expensive Plays. The cheap plays are players that are low in price, but offer high upside, the mid-tier value plays are players that will exceed their value, and the expensive plays are players who cost a lot, but should carry lineups with big fantasy numbers.

*Fantasy Points (FP) are based on DraftKings scoring system.
Jermaine O’Neal C, GSW- If Andrew Bogut sits then O’Neal becomes a great value play. He started the last game with Bogut out and produced 23 points and 13 rebounds in 34 minutes. The Detroit big men are terrible defenders so O’Neal will have another solid game if he starts.
Draymond Green PF, GSW- Will get plenty of minutes because David Lee is out with the flu. He has played 28 or more minutes in four out of the last five games. In those four games, he is averaging 12.3 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.8 assist, 1.8 steals, 1.8 blocks (33.8 FP). He will put up similar type numbers while not costing very much.
Zaza Pachulia C, Mil- Always tough suggesting Zaza because he is inconsistent, but tonight he is dirt cheap and the Bucks play the 76ers. He is a safe choice for 20+ FP with the ability to boom for 30 FP.
Tyreke Evans SG/SF, NOP- Evans will randomly blow up for a huge night and I have a gut feeling that game is tonight. If this is a blowout then Evans will also see more PT. He had a triple-double the only time he faced the Clippers this year. I believe the Pelicans will need a lot of scoring and they will turn to Evans to help with that. He is more of a GPP play than 50/50.
Will Bynum is another cheap option as he had 30 FP last time he faced Golden State.
Mid-Tier Value Plays
Brandon Knight PG, Mil- Dude just keeps putting huge numbers and faces the 76ers tonight. His price is still low on DK and Fanduel so he is a must start on those sites.
Michael Carter-Williams PG, Phi- Is a great value tonight as he is a lot cheaper than some other higher tier PGs except of DK. He is averaging 15.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 11.5 assist, and 3 steals in two games vs Milwaukee. He is a must start tonight as he will play plenty of minutes have produce huge fantasy numbers.
Tyson Chandler C, NYN- This is a revenge game for Chandler as he was part of that championship team in Dallas. He will play plenty of minutes and get a double-double.
Raymond Felton PG, NYN- Has been playing a lot better lately and has dished out eight assist in four out of the last five games. He should have another great game vs the defensively inept Jose Calderon.
Greg Monroe PF/C, Det- Is playing some of the best basketball of his career recently by averaging 48 FP in the last two games. He should feast on the injury riddled frontcourt of Golden State.
Thaddeus Young PF, Phi- He had almost 70! FP last time out vs Dallas and faces the Bucks tonight, who are a dreadful defensive team. He had 51 FP last time he faced Milwaukee and there is a great chance he surpasses that tonight.
Stephen Curry PG, GSW-is cheap on DraftStreet at $17,468, will have a monster night as he will be asked to do a lot more with David Lee out.
DeAndre Jordan had 50.5 FP last time he played New Orleans.
