FanDuel NBA Breakdown: Monday, 2/11
Welcome back to the Monday edition of the FanDuel NBA Breakdown! I’m “Thunder Dan” and I love playing and writing about FanDuel NBA DFS. I’m ready, as always, to help you get your research started for tonight’s NBA DFS slate on FanDuel.
My goal when I first changed the layout of the Breakdown was to create an all-inclusive article that gives you a place to start your research for FanDuel NBA cash games and GPPs. When making my cash and GPP picks I always take into account salary, Vegas trends, ownership, and match-up and I always do my best to give you a clear rationale for why I believe each player makes a great GPP or cash target.
I had a really profitable weekend using my picks from my Saturday article, so I hope you were able to cash, too! I took down a small tournament on Draftkings and cashed nearly every GPP lineup on FanDuel and DK both. As a reminder, this article is geared towards FanDuel but if you play on DK, too, then you should be considering the same plays a lot of the time. I know pricing and scoring is different, but if a player is a good play on FanDuel, he’s often also a good play on Draftkings.
Tonight we have a 9-game slate on tap that locks at 7:00. In an attempt to keep this article shorter and provide you with more picks, I’m going to skip the injury report and Vegas data, especially since we have over half the games without Vegas lines as of this morning.
One quick note – FanDuel really dropped the ball on pricing on this slate (or they intentionally decided not to price hardly anyone up or down) which means we could see some heavy chalk again tonight on some of the elite value and mid-range plays.
The FanDuel NBA Breakdown is a first look article that is intended to be a starting point for your cash game or GPP research for FanDuel NBA DFS.
In order to win in NBA DFS, you have to be flexible with your roster construction and sometimes take things down to the wire before lock with late-breaking injury information. At the same time, I always warn against totally scrapping your original first look build, as sometimes the plays that you were on the night before or that morning end up still being the best plays on the slate.
Today let’s jump right into the cash game core and see who our “locks” are for cash tonight.
