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.
Carlos Boozer- The secret’s out on big Carlos now, and he’s had one of the more explosive months we’ve seen from a big man in a while. His price tag has undoubtedly shot up across the board on most sites, but that shouldn’t deter you from taking him tonight in bitter divisional rivalry with the Celtics. Boston is one of the leagues smallest teams and Boozer went off for 21 and 14 against them last month. They have no one on their roster to counter his interior strength.
Joakim Noah- Boozer’s on-court counterpart, Noah has also found great success against the Celtics undersized front court this season. In their first meeting he went for 17 and 11, and in the second he went for his first career triple double. The last month has seen Noah cool off from his torrid early season pace, which is just fine for daily fantasy sports owners as we’ll most certainly find him on a discounted price tag tonight.
George Hill- The biggest knock on Hill has always been his consistency, but since healing from a particularly nasty bout with the flu he’s managed to average 15.75/4.5/4.25/1. He tried to play through the illness, which made for some eye-poppingly awful lines and led to a subsequent price drop on every site. You’ll find him on the cheap tonight against a Houston team that has definite issues defending the PG, coming in at 26th in DEFF.
Nene Hilario- Nene continues his up and down season, routinely going for over 20fp and under 10fp with surprising regularity. Tonight he’ll take on his former team, who also happens to be an up-tempo, fast paced offensive unit. I predict a good deal of transition statistics, and the fantasy goodness should abound for everyone involved. It also helps that the he’s had just enough poor outings that his price tag is well below the potential value he can return.
Glen Davis- Since returning from his gruesome shoulder injury, Davis has played 18 and 25 minutes. If the trend continues he may hit 30 tonight, and against the pathetic Charlotte front court that may be more than enough to get the job done. I wouldn’t normally recommend a player so soon off an injury with such an unknown minutes situation, but his price tag has dropped low enough on most sites that he’s worth a speculative play on upside alone.
