When our National Basketball Association (NBA) 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.
Danilo Gallinari (DK: $6,800; FD: $7,100): Our solo Must-Have for tonight’s small Sunday slate is in a fantastic spot. Danilo Gallinari will take on the Nets tonight who have been terrible to power forwards over the last 30 days. They have allowed an average of 51.96 DKPPG to the position while allowing a whopping 24.31 real points per game. Luckily, Gallinari has been their go-to player on offense since Tobias Harris was traded. Since the trade deadline, Danilo has owned the highest usage percentage of the starting five at 26.8%. This is also coupled with a solid 1.24 FPPM. At... Read More
Monte Morris (DK: $3,500; FD: $3,900): Our lone Must-Have of the night is Denver Guard Monte Morris. Having seen 27 plus minutes in back to back contests, his price is just too cheap to overlook given his opportunity tonight. He also draws a plus matchup tonight against a Dallas team that has been bottom of the league in defensive efficiency over their last ten games, as well as bottom five in the league in defensive efficiency to both guard positions. We view Morris as safe for minutes in the mid 20’s, with upside for more if this game blows out.... Read More
Andre Iguodala (DK: $4,000; FD: $4,300): Our first Must-Have of the night is former Finals MVP, Andre Iguodala. Iggy will see a solid bump in minutes tonight in the absence of star Kevin Durant. He comes in at a very depleted price point, giving him an opportunity to be an elite value play given his increased opportunity in this contest. He is a solid fantasy point per minute producer, averaging .87 with Durant off the floor. His usage is not ideal, at under 12 percent, but given his price, we still believe he has a clear path to value tonight... Read More
Ante Zizic (DK: $3,700; FD: $4,400): Our first Must-Have tonight comes from the depleted Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs will be without Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Marquese Chriss and maybe even Larry Nance Jr. tonight. That is going to leave numerous amounts of minutes to fall into Ante Zizic’s lap, making him an easy Must-Have. In this situation this season, he sees an increase of 2.7% in usage and .12 in FPPM leaving him at a total 21.7% usage and 1.03 FPPM. If Nance ends up not playing tonight he sees an additional boost up to 22.4% in usage and 1.10... Read More
Gordon Hayward (DK: $4,600; FD: $4,700): Our first Must-Have of the night is Celtics’ forward Gordon Hayward. Hayward is going to be one of the more elite value plays on this slate, as his price is still low across the industry. With Jayson Tatum out tonight, he should see an increase in minutes as well tonight. With Tatum out, Hayward has a usage at 18.7 percent, and sees a decent fantasy point per minute bump up to .92. With Kyrie drawing a tough defensive matchup against Beverley, we also expect this to slightly increase for tonight’s contest. Hayward has gone... Read More
