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.
|SG Buddy Hield (SACvsUTA)||$5,400||30.2||27.5||N/A||N/A|
Another player taking plenty of shots is Buddy Hield, who has taken decently to his new team and role after being traded in the much-discussed DeMarcus Cousins deal. The sharpshooter out of Oklahoma has gotten 32+ minutes in four of the past five games and has jacked 12+ shots in six straight. He’s a very sneaky play in a spot almost everyone will be avoiding against the stingy, slow Jazz, making Hield a target in GPPs with a solid ceiling around 35 if the shot’s falling.
|PG Stephen Curry (GSW@SAS)||$8,800||33.9||44.3||N/A||N/A|
Curry may be projected for 33 minutes, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if he sees closer to 40 in what looks to be the most important remaining game on Golden State’s schedule. They’ll surely be decent underdogs in this spot, but if they can get the win, it would almost seal the top seed. All of the Warriors can be had at a bargain in this pace-down spot, but Curry is the type of player who can go off against any opponent. Expect some extra looks for Curry if Klay Thompson draws Kawhi Leonard duty, leaving Curry to carry the offense.
|C Enes Kanter (OKC@ORL)||$5,100||20.9||25.4||N/A||N/A|
Kanter ended a three-game hot streak of 29+ DK points with a seven-point dud against Dallas on Monday night. He’s far too risky to deploy in cash but makes for a high-upside tournament option against the Magic here. Orlando sports the 21st-ranked defense and is 25th in rebound rate, making this a juicy spot for Kanter. Any time he spends opposite Nikola Vucevic will be a premium fantasy opportunity, so Kanter could get back to his 40 DK point ways.
