Fantasy Basketball: Daily Dandies Mar. 6th by Michael Pichan (@FantasyNomad)   [caption id="attachment_16070" align="alignleft" width="251"]photo courtesy of scldunk.com Do yourself a favor, roster Derrick tonight.[/caption] For those of you checking out my recommendations for the first time, I group the players in A,B,C,D Tiers. And, because many of us play at different sites I have generalized the cut-off price tag for each tier. If you have any specific questions post them in the comments section and I will answer them asap.   Good Luck to everyone, and if you are looking for a chance at some free money here you go: Free H2H Challenge at Draft Day winner gets five bucks: Challenge the Fantasy Nomad Seriously, it costs you nothing and you can win $5 cash money homie, just click the link in blue and pick your five players, simple, I know.

  • G Dwayne Wade- MIA vs ORL: Wade didn't let us done on Monday and he has another prime match, at home, versus their in-state, um, rival, Orlando. Look for Wade to be the one making the Magic happen tonight.
  • PG Steph Curry- GSW vs SAC: The Kings are playing their second game in as many days and and are allowing the most Fantasy Points/game to PG's on the season.
  • SG/SF J.R. Smith- NYK @DET: Smith has scored 30 plus FP in each of  his last four games and with Melo out you can expect Smith to look for his even more so.
  • C Brook Lopez-BKN @CHA: Bobcats do not have anybody that can match up with insert center's name each contest, today it's Brook. Lopez scored 26 points, pulled down 11 boards, and added three blocks in his last game versus Charlotte. News gets even better for Brook as Bobcats Center, Byron Mullens, is a game time decision.
Players to possibly avoid:
  • Knicks Carmelo Anthony, Jazz Al Jefferson, Pistons Greg Monroe, and Grizzles Zach Randolph are out
  • Game time decisions: Wizards Bradley Beal
B-rated Ballers: Big name players with big games, but not as high of a price tag as the top five or so priced players at each position (target 30+ FP).
  • PG Raymond Felton -NYK @DET: see JR Smith above
  • PF/C Derrick Favors- UTA @CLE: Favors will start in Al Jefferson's absence, again. In the three games that Favors has seen between 30-39 minutes he is averaging about 17 points and 13 rebounds
  • C Tyson Chandler: NYK @DET: If Melo and Amar'e miss tonight's game, Chandler should get some additional looks on the offensive end versus a Pistons team that has been one of the worst teams defensively against opposing teams centers this season and Pistons' center Greg Monroe will not play tonight.
  • C Enes Kanter- UTA @CLE: Even though Kanter didn't get the start last game he still played 32 minutes and is averaging about a FP/minute played in his last two games (76 mins/75 FP).
  C-as in players that COULD be in line to provide you with good to great value (target 25+ FP).
  • PG Raymond Felton -NYK @DET: see JR Smith above
  • PG Isaiah Thomas-SAC @GSW: Expect this game to be a high scoring shoot-out, so any Kings/Warriors player is likely a good play tonight with Isaiah being one of the better discounted options coming off a 36 FP game last night.
  • F Earl Clark- LAL @NOH: Clark is steadily improving having scored 20 plus FP in two of his last three games and if Metta World Peace can't go Clark should see 30 or more minutes again tonight.
D-Discounted Dandies: Players on the cheap, but due to some recent factors suggest they may exceed their discounted price tag (Double Digit Fantasy Production).
  • PG F Mo Williams- UTA @CLE: This is a risky play as it will be Mo's first game back since the end of December. I would expect him to log a lot of minutes if he does go, but his shoot could easily be rusty and he'll have to keep up with the Kyrie, not the match up you want when you are trying to get back into game shape.
  • SG Marco Belinelli-LAL vs ATL: Kirk Hinrich is out and Nate Robinson is a game time decision with sore ribs. Belinelli has logged 30 plus minutes in each of his last two games and if his last game is any indication (17 FGA) expect him to look for his shot.
  • PF/C Ed Davis-MEM vs POR: No Zach Randolph or Darrell Arthur means extended PT for E.D. Portland has allowed, on average, the third most offensive rebounds to their opponents in the last three games.
