When our National Football League (NFL) experts have important information or updates on individual players, injuries, match-ups, positions, or other specific aspects of a sport, they share it in a Spotlight. These articles provide in-depth analysis on how to reveal hidden value in the world of daily fantasy sports. This is where you will find key advantages that can launch your lineups to the top of your contests.
Rodney Hood (DK $2,200; FD $3,000): In Game 3 of the NBA Finals, coach Tyronn Lue made a rotation change and only played nine players all game. One of these nine players was the former Jazz wing player, Rodney Hood. Hood is a great player, but his attitude within the team is what had him sitting on the bench for most of the playoffs. With Lue realizing that the likes of Kyle Korver and Jordan Clarkson weren’t going to cut it against this elite Warriors team, he had no other choice but to throw Hood into the game in hopes...

JaVale McGee (DK $1,200; FD $3,000): The Warriors big man got a start in Game 2 of the NBA Finals and produced while he was on the court. Being a feature of pick-and-rolls with Steph Curry, McGee got plenty of alley-oops where he was wide open for high-percentage dunks. Playing 17 minutes in Game 2 was more than enough for McGee to just destroy value at his $1,000 price tag on DK and $3,000 on FD. Scoring 12 points on 6-6 shooting may seem unsustainable, but in 17 minutes with five or six dunk attempts, this stat line could easily... Read More
Larry Nance (DK $3,200): In a heartbreaking Game 1 loss, Larry Nance had a fantastic game in limited minutes. Nance scored nine points, while racking up 11 rebounds and a steal. Nance shot 67% from the field and was incredibly efficient throughout the game. In those 19 minutes, Nance’s +/- was +3, which ended as the third-best on the Cavaliers team. Despite an incredible game from the mid-season acquisition, Nance saw his price drop $800 for a reason we cannot figure out. At his current price, his 24.75 fantasy point outing would be looking at nearly 8x value which would have... Read More
Jordan Bell (DK $2,400; FD $6,000): The rookie from Oregon has impressed when given minutes this season. Andre Iguodala will once again sit out a game in the playoffs, missing Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Because of this, youngsters like Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell will have to step up. In the four games that Iguodala has missed, Bell’s minutes have been trending upward, as Looney’s have been slightly falling. In addition to the minutes trends, Bell has proven to be a better fantasy point scorer in more limited minutes. Bell’s price across both sites is dirt cheap, being... Read More
James Harden (FD $16,500): The last daily fantasy NBA slate of the conference finals is tonight! Just like last night, the top stud on FanDuel is just too underpriced for the workload he should see. Harden bounced back after a rather poor series with a 32/7/9 stat line. Harden has a massive usage rate with Chris Paul off the court and his fantasy points correlate directly. With Paul doubtful again, Harden will have to play near 40 minutes if the Rockets want any chance at defeating the reigning champs. Last game, Harden tallied his highest fantasy-point total since Game 1 where... Read More
