Welcome to Five Guys No Burgers And Fries: Daily Fantasy Strategy.
In this article we’ll be examining daily fantasy strategy by discussing five players that have an excellent chance of performing well this evening.
Eric Bledsoe- Bledsoe has filled in admirably for the injured Chris Paul, producing averages of 16.5 points, 5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 2 steals in the past two games. He’s playing for a new contract as a starter on another team at some point down the road, and I fully expect him to keep his foot on the gas for as long as he holds down the starting gig. The Timberwolves have consistently given up huge nights to opposing PGs and he should continue that trend this evening.
Beno Udrih- Udrih is a name that’s not normally talked about, but on nights with small game slates there’s a definite lack of value, and we often end up looking deep to fill our roster out. Udrih is a talented backup, who also provides a veteran presence on a Bucks team that has begun to resemble a youth movement in recent years. He’s been quietly siphoning minutes from Brandon Jennings, logging over 25 in two of his past three contests. Tonight the Bucks take on a Phoenix team that is 18th overall in PG DEFF and as long as he’s sees around 20 minutes he’ll be a safe bet to return value.
Dwight Howard- For the first time all season Howard is beginning to flash his unique athleticism, which bodes well for the Lakers and fantasy owners alike. Tonight there’s simply no better option than Howard against a Miami team whose struggles with rebounding and interior defense have been well-documented. The Heat clock in at 28th in the league in C DEFF, and Howard is coming off his best game of the season. The Lakers seem like they may finally be ready to “click” and if that happens Howard will be the primary beneficiary.
Nikola Pekovic- Pekovic has been one of the few bright spots for the Timberwolves in a year marred by injuries. He’s chugging along with averages of 16.4 points and 8.6 rebounds, and is a consistent double double threat every time he touches the court. The Wolves take on the Clippers this evening who happen to defend the C position well below average, coming in at 27th in DEFF.
Mario Chalmers- Chalmers is someone I’m rarely happy to consider. On a team where he’s a buried offensive option, relegated to spot up three point duty, he’s as difficult to trust on a consistent basis as they come. Tonight though may be the perfect storm of circumstances as he comes in red hot, shooting 21 of 35 and 16 of 24 from distance in his past three tilts. The Lakers are dead last in the league at defending the PG, and you shouldn’t let the recent slow games from opposing PGs deter you. Kobe Bryant was simply defending the other team’s best offensive weapon, which means tonight he’ll have his hands full with LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.
