Daily Fantasy Basketball Du-Rant

Your Fantasy Nomad has been traveling the Floridian Peninsula hitting up Spring Training games and the race track during the day while watching hoops at night. I ran into former Tigers manager Jim Leyland and while the Marlboro Man said he is in retirement so he does not have to make decisions. I on the other hand have just been on vacation and am back to bring you our picks of the night for Fantasy Hoops and some of the more affordable tournaments in the industry.

A-All Star priced players that should put up All Star stats today (target 35+ FP, $16,000-on up).

GPP

Joakim Noah (20.3%) while I like Anthony Davis and Kevin Love, Noah will save you 2-3 thousand dollars and you should get similar production from the long hair hippy who flirts with a triple-double on the reg now.

 

 

DU

Tyreke Evans (16%) the Raptors went to overtime last night and have to turn around and play again tonight, so I’m expecting a sluggish performance from them, but not from Tyreke. Evans, other than screwing owners on the night he got sick, has been Mr. Consistent as he has exceeded 33 FP in six of his last seven games.

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 (around 30 FP, $13,000-$16,000).

GPP

Josh Smith (14.5%) while Greg Monroe is the safer, more conservative play JSmoove will cost you about 2K less and without Andre Drummond in the lineup Smith should be able to tally up a few more rebounds then normal to help make up for his tendency to miss quite a few shots. Smith is the higher risk/reward option over Monroe because he does take more shots then Monroe, but he also has a tendency to miss more shots. Let’s hope tonight is the night he gets hot.


DU

Kenneth Faried (15.6%) has earned his nickname of late as he has been a “Manimal” by exceeding 30-plus FP in each of his last four games and he gets a great matchup against one of the worst defensive front lines in all of the NBA in the Pistons. In addition, Faried is averaging seven more FP/game at home then on the road at 26.95.

C-as in players that COULD be in line to provide you with good to great value in the mid-tier price range (target 25+ FP, $10,000-$13,000).

GPP

Amir Johnson (12.3%) should see 30-plus minutes again tonight and should be even more involved in the offense with Jonas Valanciunas out with a back injury.

 

 

DU

Taj Gibson (10.2%) should get plenty of playing time tonight as the Bulls should blow out the worst defensive team in the league in the 76ers, which would mean Carlos Boozer should head to the bench early in the game in favor of the younger, more spry Taj Gibson who averages around a double-double when he sees starter minutes.

D-Discounted Dandies: Players on the cheap whose production may exceed what their discounted price tag suggests. (Double Digit Fantasy Production, $3,500-$10,000).

GPP

Aaron Brooks (7.8%) Ty Lawson is questionable for Wednesday night, with a groin injury and headaches, should he sit out then Aaron Brooks would get the start against one of the worst teams in terms of defending the point guard  position in the Pistons. (Brooks' teammate Timofey Mozgov is also in play versus a depleted Pistons frontline and Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey is as well as he should see some extra minutes indirectly through the absence of Andre Drummond tonight).

 

 

DU

Gorgui Dieng (5.2%) we have been cycling through tall bigs who can not really score like Ajinca Jeff Adrien and now Dieng, but love to rebound like a fat kid loves cake. Dieng should have a great chance to double up with the additional bonus of five block bonus production.

Best of Luck tonight and remember you can always ask your questions in the comment section below and/or send me a tweet @FantasyNomad
