11/4 DFS Notes and Picks

If you need a list of beat reporters by team:


Injury Watch/Effects:

  • Karl-Anthony Towns is out tonight serving the second game of his suspension, which makes Gorgui Dieng a cash game lock at $3.3K on Draftkings and Jeff Teague a great source of value in tournaments.

  • Joel Embiid is out tonight serving the second game of his suspension, this makes Al Horford, Tobias Harris and Josh Richardson solid values.

  • Jaren Jackson Jr. is out tonight this will boost Jonas Valanciunas and Brandon Clarke minutes and usage.

  • Draymond Green and D'Angelo Russell are out tonight making Ky Boman and Eric Paschall (Birthday Narrative) elite values tonight.

  • Reggie Jackson,Derrick Rose are out tonight and Tim Frazier is listed as doubtful this makes the Pistons rely even more on Andre Drummond and makes Bruce Brown Jr. a cash game lock who played 40 minutes last night and is still only $3.2K on Draftkings.

  • Derrick Favors is questionable tonight, if out Jahlil Okafor becomes an elite value.

GPP Thoughts:

  • With all the value around you will see a lot of Stars and Scrubs in tonight's slate, an easy way to get contrarian and gain leverage on the field would to be only select 1-2 cheep punt plays instead of 3-4 like most of the field will.

  • With a -11 spread Vegas thinks that the Warriors are going to get blown out this means that Damien Lillard and C.J McCollum minutes will take a hit and their projections will be lowered. If GSW can keep this a decently close game C.J McCollum and Rodney Hood instantly become some of my favorite plays that will garner little ownership.
