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 Ed Davis (POR@UTA)||$3,800||20.6||15.3||28.2||6.8|
The situation at C is pretty ugly for the Blazers after they traded away Mason Plumlee. Meyers Leonard got the start in the first post-trade game but was absolutely abysmal against Atlanta. Instead, it was Davis making a case for more playing time with a line of 11-13-3 before fouling out. Newly acquired Jusuf Nurkic is expected to suit up, but he’s had foul trouble of his own in the past and can’t be expected to play starter’s minutes in his first game with a team. Expect another healthy dose for Davis, with his rebounding being sorely needed against Rudy Gobert and the Jazz.
|SG/SF Norman Powell (TORvsCHA)||$3,900||22.5||18.1||26.8||5.5|
Another deadline-beating trade involved the Raptors, who dealt away Terrence Ross for Serge Ibaka. With the team missing both Ross and Patrick Patterson, who has been nursing an injury, the Raps need a player who can spot up and hit 3s, so Powell should see a large increase in his role. Plus, Powell has been a monster at times when he subbed in for an injured DeMar DeRozan, so it behooves the Raps to give him more court time. He posted a nice game last night with 25 DK points and the back-to-back means his price hasn’t been adjusted.
|PG Goran Dragic (MIA@HOU)||$7,200||34.5||37.9||48.4||19.8|
It’s a way pace-up game for the Heat as they travel to play the Rockets. Dragic is in a revenge game here and, most importantly, this is exactly the type of game he thrives in. Dragic is best when he can get on the break, and there should be plenty of breaks both ways against the racing Rockets. The return of Dion Waiters cuts into Dragic’s usage some, but he’s still a nice play.
