NBA Daily Fantasy Preview 05/08

Firstly, we will present important picks for every slate here in our blog to help you choose your team. Don´t forget to check your standings in the NBA Leaderboard after every contest – are you able to compete with the best?

Slate Review

Low scoring slate yesterday , let’s see who got the win in the end

Tottic won and got almost 1.5k!

He believed in Leonard and got 42.25 points from him and of course had Olynyk at the power forward position and got rewarded with 41 points. Well done.

Players to watch

5 games for tonight’s 20K main Slate and here are our suggestions.

Point Guards

In addition, check the NBA Fantasy Strategy Guide if you are new to the game.

Fred Vanvleet – Raptors – 10.1m

Vanvleet is playing very good in the bubble , averaging 42 minutes and 46.5 fantasy points per game. At 10.1m and against a Magic team , that is playing well but gives up a lot of points against opposing guards , i like him a lot.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander – Thunder – 9.8m

With Schröder out of the games for now , the Thunder will play more minutes both Paul and SGA ( yeah i am not writing the whole name again ) . I like SGA more tonight because i think Paul will be the focus of the Lakers defense and they will try hard to limit him.

Brad Wannamaker – Celtics – 4.6m

With Kemba out , the Celtics will play Wannamaker more minutes. He is not the best fantasy producer in the world but if you need a cheap option to fill your roster , he would be a good choice.

Shooting Guards

Marcus Smart – Celtics – 9.1m

With Kemba out , a lot of Celtics get a bump in usage and fantasy production and the one that gets the most is Smart , producing almost 4 points more per game. He is not playing well in the bubble but i expect him to bounce back and tonight could be that night.

Terrence Ross – Magic – 8.1m

Ross has been excellent in the 3 games since the restart averaging 24 minutes and a little more then 1 fantasy point per minute. With Fournier struggling to find his shot , Roos will keep getting the minutes and i expect that to continue tonight.

Tyler Johnson – Nets – 6.1m

Same as yesterday. Nets have very few good players and depending on who plays , we will find value. You can play Temple ( 6.7m ) if you like or Luwawu-Cabarrot ( 5.7m) . One of them will have a good night but your guess is as good as mine.

Small Forwards

Jason Tatum – Celtics – 12.8m

Tatum gets the second more usage with Kemba out and against the Nets , i would play him in a heartbeat.

Troy Brown Jr. – Wizards – 8.0m

1.1 fantasy points per minute in the bubble and the Wizards best player. As long as he doesn’t get into foul trouble he will keep producing for us.

Power Forwards

Pascal Siakam – Raptors – 12.1m

He averages close to 40 fantasy points per game against the Magic , has about the same average since the restart and also for the season. Siakam has a very high floor and given the right circumastances , a high ceiling also and I beleive the game against the Magic tonight is exactly that!

Michael Porter Jr. – Nuggets – 5.9m

18.25 points in the first game , 59.5 in the second. At 5.9m , i am going to keep playing him as long as his price is so low.


Joel Embiid – 76ers – 14.2m

14.2m are a lot but how can i avoid Embiid , a player averaging 60 points per game against the Wizards , a game that has 232.5 o/u on fanteam sportbook? Yes i am playing him.

Enes Kanter – Celtics – 5.7m

Kanter is an excellent point per game producer but he is not getting enought minutes. Against the Nets , i am hoping he will get 25+ minutes , which will give us 25+ points from a player with a 5.7m salary.
