10/31 NBA DFS Notes and Picks


If you need a list of beat reporters by team:

Injury Watch/Effects:

  • Trae Young is out today, this makes DeAndre Bembry a cash game lock if starting.

  • Justise Winslow is currently questionable, if out look to Jimmy Butler, Gorgan Dragic, Tyler Herro, and Kendrick Nunn to see a bump in minutes and usage.

  • Will Barton is currently questionable, if out Gary Harris, Malik Beasley or Jerami Grant (whoever starts) become solid values.

  • Jrue Holiday is currently questionable, if out Josh Hart and Nickeli Alexander- Walker become great values.

  • Derrick Favors is doubtful, if out Jahlil Okafor, Jaxson Hayes, get a boost in minutes while Brandon Ingram and Kenrich Williams will get a boost in usage.

GPP Thoughts:

  • Don't go too crazy on 3 game slates, something as small as picking the coin flip on who will get more minutes between Jahlil Okafor and Jaxson Hays can make or break your night.

  • Most of the value will be centered around ATL/NO/DEN injury's if you want to differentiate yourself in large field GPPs look to San Antonio who will garner little ownership. If you pick someone like Bryn Forbes who has averaged: 20-5-1,16-4-3,14-7-0 over the last 3 games and is only $4.1K and the rest of the field is on a cheap chalky starter that bust you automatically have a huge edge because of the size of this slate forcing condensed ownership. Also like taking a stab at Kevin Huerter in tournaments if the rest of the field is going to be on Bembry.

Cash Targets:

Kawhi Leonard, DeAndre Bembry (If starting), Jamal Murray, Jaxon Hayes/Jahlil Okafor (Whoever is starting), Jabari Parker.

My DK Player Pool:

PG: Jamal Murray, Bryn Forbes, Kendrick Nunn.

SG: Jimmy Butler, Jrue Holiday, Gary Harris.

SF: Kawhi Leonard, Brandon Ingram.

PF: Brandon Ingram (Lower if Jrue is back), Jabari Parker, Jerami Grant (If starting).

C: Nikola Jokic, Bam Adebayo, John Collins, Jahlil Okafor (If starting).

Value: DeAndre Bembry, Jabari Parker, Bryn Forbes, Rudy Gay, JayMychal Green.

GPP Plays:

Cam Reddish,Kevin Huerter, Bryn Forbes, Dejounte Murray.
