Last night was a great night for us and we’ll continue the winning ways here tonight. We’re looking at a slate of five match-ups and keep an eye on that L.A./ Cleveland game. The outcome may surprise you. Good luck tonight guys and here are your Daily Fantasy Basketball value plays for today.
Deron Williams PG Brooklyn Nets ($7500 Salary at FANDUEL) – Some players just pour it on as the season rolls along. This is the case with Williams. Within the last week and a half Deron has seen his point average per game go from 16 to 21 points per start. Deron is worth every cent due to the fact that he is always leading in the stat department in every game. In each match-up Williams is leading in points or assists, or both. Once again, we’re looking at a player who can put up beast-like points for a bit less in price. He has a great match-up here in this Knick game and see Williams putting up 24 points without an issue.
Projection: 24 pts / 8 ast / 5 reb / 1 blk / 1 stl
Marco Belinelli SG Chicago Bulls ($3700 Salary at FANDUEL) – Please take my word for it and grab this kid now before Hamilton gets healthy. You will not regret it. Bellinelli has massive value (for now) and upside (for now). He’s also logging in a great amount of minutes (for now). In Marco’s last three games he is averaging a little over 20 points per game, which has been rising the more he plays. Listen, extremely cheap , massive value get him into your line-up and take advantage of him, for now..
Projection: 22 pts / 3 ast / 5 reb / 2 stl
Danilo Gallinari SF Denver Nuggets ($6800 Salary at FANDUEL) – Danilo just missed another double-double in his last start. So close all the time with this kid. In Gallinari’s last start he posted a very solid stat line having scoring 21 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal during the Nuggets loss to the Knicks this past Sunday. I am personally looking for Danilo to get me a double-double in this meeting and without any excuses. His shooting consistency is great when he’s on. Gallinari will post up a much better stat line than he did previously against the Pistons tonight and finally gets that double “D”.
Projection: 17 pts / 4 ast / 11 reb / 1 blk / 2 stl
Kenneth Faried PF Denver Nuggets ($6300 Salary at FANDUEL) – I’m looking for history to once again repeat itself in regards to Faried versus the Pistons. In the game against Detroit last month Kenneth put up some nice digits having scored 15 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block. Nice digits, yes but I see a better output this time around. He’ll have Maxiell on him all night and with that said look for an above average performance from Faried tonight and slightly better than his last time out against these Pistons.
Projection: 18 pts / 3 ast / 10 reb / 2 blk / 1 stl
Anderson Varejao C Cleveland Cavaliers ($8400 Salary at FANDUEL) – I can’t believe it finally happened. Not so much that it happened but how it went down. Anderson’s streak of 9 double-doubles was stopped not by 9 points or 9 rebounds. It was stopped by a 4 point night, granted 14 rebounds but only 4 points? Ouch. That sorry game was against the Timberwolves two games ago. Anderson came right back the next night and began his new streak against the Detroit Pistons, 16 points and 13 rebounds. Varejao will go for and obtain his second double-double of his new streak tonight versus Kobe and the Lakers. Great choice here as Anderson always gets up for the big games.
Projection: 17 pts / 3 ast / 17 reb / 1 blk / 1 stl
