11/13 NBA DFS Notes and Picks


If you need a list of beat reporters by team:

Injury Watch/Effects:

  • Kyle Lowrey, Serge Ibaka, and OG Anunoby are all out tonight, expect Pascal Siakam and Fred Vanvleet to have elite usage tonight in a very tight rotation. Also expect Rondae Hollis-Jefferson,Chris Boucher, and Normon Powell to be good values

  • Joel Embiid and Trey Burke are out tonight, expect Al Horford, Tobias Harris, Josh Richardson, and Ben Simmons to see increased usage.

  • Jordan Bell, Shabazz Napier are doubtful and Jeff Teague is questionable for tonight's game, If all 3 miss expect Point Andrew Wiggins to continue to be a thing and Jarrett Culiver and Josh Okogie (Barf) to be good values. If Jeff Teague Plays hes a great play.

  • Anthony Davis, Rajon Rondo, Troy Daniels are all out tonight, expect Lebron James, Avery Bradley, and Kyle Kuzma to see a big boost in usage.

  • Landry Shamet is out and Paul George is questionable for tonight, If Paul George plays this takes Kawhi Leonard off the table for me.

  • Eric Gordon and Daniel House Jr. are out for tonight, Ben McLemore has already been named the starter and is a good value but I am looking towards Austin Rivers in GPP's to command the majority of the second unit usage now.

  • Gordon Hayward out and Daniel Theis is doubtful for tonight, This is boost Jaylen Brown, Robert Williams, and Jason Tatum.

  • Dwayne Bacon is doubtful for tonight, if he misses look to Devonte Graham and Malik Monk to get more usage and minutes.

  • Rodney Hood is questionable tonight expect Kent Bazemore and Anfernee Simons to get more minutes and usage if hood misses.

Cash Targets:

Lebron James, Karl -Anthony Towns, Kyle Kuzma, Jeff Teague(If he plays), Terry Rozier(if Dewayne Bacon is out),Jaren Jackson Jr. (Can already see him fouling out in the 3rd now),Chris Boucher, Fred VanVleet .

My Favorites:


  • Isiah Thomas - I am a complete sucker for revenge games, and boy oh boy is this the revenge game of all revenge games back when IT was playing for Boston he gave it his all and Danny Ainge traded him and basically derailed his career after working his way back into the league and now starting. I think this is a spot where he goes nuclear against his old club that did him dirty.

  • Terry Rozier- With Dewayne Bacon doubtful for tonight Scarry Terry becomes an amazing value when Charlotte with only have about 3 viable guards to run out there he should see an big uptick in minutes and usage.


  • D'Angelo Russell - With 50/48/82 DK points in his last three games I have no clue how DLO is this cheep, with Curry absent his usage has gone through the rough and we also get a revenge narrative against the Lakers.

  • Fred Vanvleet - Portland has played games on 5 of the last 7 days, i'm expecting a team that is already second to last in defense against point guards to be exhausted and even less inclined to play defense. At $7.1K on Draft Kings FVV has the ability to play north of 40 minutes (especially if Norman Powell misses) against a tired and bad defense.


  • Lebron James - With AD and Rajon Rondo out LBJ becomes the stud of the night and a cash game lock averaging almost 1.75 Fantasy points per minute with AD off the floor.

  • Jaylen Brown - Will go under owned just because of his price, with Gordon Hayward out expect Brown to get a bump in usage and rebounding rates against a very bad fast paced Wizards team.


  • Pascal Siakam - Just like with FVV Siakam has the ability to play 40 minutes and has been one of the best fantasy point per minute players in the league with all the injuries this rotation is just so tight that it should be near impossible for him to fail.

  • Kyle Kuzma - With AD out tonight and Kuzma's minutes limit lifted expect him to be one of the best value on the slate with the opportunity to get up to 30 minutes of playing time.


  • Karl Anthony-Towns - KAT picked up a few phantom fouls against Detroit and was able to pick up 50 DK points even in foul trouble, with a depressed price tag $9.3K on DK this is a great bounce back spot for KAT at a real relatively cheep price tag for his ceiling.

  • Al Horford - With a usage rate of almost 25% with Embiid off the floor Horford is just too cheep, makes for a good play in tournaments to gain leverage on everyone that is jamming in Ben Simmons with Embiid out.


Rondae Hollis-Jefferson,Ben MeLemore, Chris Boucher, Jaren Jackson Jr., Kyle Kuzma, Robert Williams, Isiah Thomas, Kent Bazemore, Malik Monk (If starting).

GPP Plays:

Isiah Tomas (Bring it back with Keemba Walker), D'Angelo Russell, Austin Rivers, Thomas Bryant,Devonte' Graham, Dejounte Murray, Damien Lillard, Patrick Beverly.
