11/5 NBA DFS Notes and Picks


If you need a list of beat reporters by team:

Injury Watch/Effects:

  • Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner areout tonight, you will see a boost in usage for Jeremy Lamb (revenge game narrative) and Malcom Brogdon, will also make Goga Bitadze a sneaky good GPP play.

  • Steven Adams is questionable tonight, If out Nerlens Noel a cash game lock and great source of value.

  • John Collins was recently suspended for 25 games, Jabari Parker will most likely benefit the most from this. On a side note Trae Young actually saw a dip in fantasy production with John Collins off the floor last year.

  • Jaylen Brown and Enis Kanter are out tonight. Marcus Smart, Gordon Hayward and Daniel Theis will benefit the most from this Jayson Tatum will have a tough match up against Kevin Love. Daniel Theis is a very good value and cash game play on FanDuel.

  • Will Barton is out tonight, this will benefit Jamal Murray in terms of usage.

  • Avery Bradly and Rajon Rondo are out tonight, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will get the start for the Lakeshow tonight and it makes Alex Caruso an intresting GPP play.

  • Derrick White is questionable tonight, if out Patty Mills will get a boost an be a good value.

GPP Thoughts:

  • With most of the value on this slate coming from Boston and Atlanta you can get an edge on the field by using other value plays that will be lower owned and in great spots like Patty Mills (if Derrick White out), Terrance Ross, Bruno Fernando (in the ATL game but wont be owned)

  • The Pacers big men are suppose to be a game time decision tonight, if you have a build where you can swap in Myles Turner or Domantas Sabonis last second you can get good players at low ownership all while gaining leverage on everyone that plays Malcom Brogdon.

  • Its no secret that Anthony Davis and LeBron James are going to be heavily owned in cash games and tournaments, in tournaments if you want to get maximum expected value from playing both super stars you will need to play someone like Zach LaVine or Lauri Markkanen with the hopes that they keep it a competitive game. You could also make it a full game stack by adding Danny Green (better on FD because of steals and blocks) or KCP.

Cash Game Targets: Jabari Parker, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Daniel Theis, (Danny Green or KCP)

My DK Player Pool:

PG: Kemba Walker, Trae Young, Shai-Gilgeous Alexander, Jamal Murray, Patty Mills (If Derrick White out)

SG: Malcom Brogdon, Zach LaVine, Jeremy Lamb, Marcus Smart, Danny Green

SF: Lebron James, Gordon Hayward, Otto Porter, KCP, Danny Green

PF: Jayson Tatum, Jabari Parker, Paul Milsap, Domantas Sabonis (If in), Miles Bridges

C: Anthony Davis, Nikola Jokic, Daniel Theis, LaMarcus Aldridge, Goga Bitadze

Value: Daniel Theis, Paul Milsap, Otto Porter, Jabari Parker, Goga Bitadze, Patty Mills

GPP Plays: Dejounte Murray, Lauri Markkanen or Zach LaVine (If you stack the Lakers), Terrance Ross, Bruno Fernando,Goga Bitadze (if the Pacers big men are out)

My Cash thoughts pending no injury updates:

*Temporary line (still a lot of injury news to come) will update on twitter*

*Assuming Steven Adams is out*

If Adams isn't declared out before lock swap Noel for Alex Len
