When it comes to daily fantasy sports (DFS), and basketball in particular, there’s a lot of data out there that can help you make lineup decisions. One source of helpful data is FantasyLabs, an analytical sports resource site that features DFS projections as part of its stock of premium content.
|C Myles Turner (IND@WAS)||$5,800||31.2||30.9||42.2||15.2|
Turner’s price has come down $1,100 in the past four games, but he’s still putting up double-digit shots most nights. Where he’s struggling at the moment is on the glass, but it’s probably just the normal ebbs and flows of an NBA season. Washington’s frontline isn’t anything to worry about on defense, and Turner should some chances in what should be a fairly high-paced game here. Buy low on the young C.
|C Marc Gasol (MEMvsGSW)||$7,400||33.5||38.8||50||20.8|
The Warriors are missing both Zaza Pachulia and David West with injuries, and that’s necessitating serious minutes for the likes of JaVale McGee and James McAdoo. Gasol should be able to make mincemeat of both of those guys, and this is a way pace-up game for the plodding Grizzlies against the speedy Warriors, who are second in pace. There’s always the chance of a blowout when the Dubs are involved, but the Grizz are only +7.5 at home so it should be competitive.
|SG Klay Thompson (GSW@MEM)||$6,200||33.3||34.2||45.6||19.8|
This is one of the cheapest prices you’ll find Thompson at all season. Any time the Warriors are projected to be in a competitive game, it’s a good time to target their players, and this is such a time. Memphis sports a tough defense and a slow pace, but Thompson’s price drop takes that into account and he should be very low on the ownership scale here, making him a good option in GPPs. Take a stab if you need to diversify.
