February 10th, 2018
We had a great Wednesday with Karl Anthony Towns and Lamarcus Aldridge both hitting value with big numbers. Ish Smith gave us what we needed too, unfortunately the IND/NO game was postponed due to moisture on the floor. WTF!!! This is enough to put a simple man like me into retirement. But I won’t, after all I played light. DFS Basketball is hard but fun… so let’s take a closer look at some cash plays for Saturday Feb. 10th.
POINT GUARD – Elfrid Payton vs DEN $7000
Payton is in a good spot here even though this is his first ever game a Phoenix Sun. His price tag is reasonable, and there’s a great chance he’ll get a ton of volume with Tyler Ulis out. I also love Josh Gray at the other guard spot for Phoenix. Volume is the name of the game.
SHOOTING GUARD – Bradley Beal at Chicago $9300
I’m spending up at the SG position because I have to spend up somewhere and I like Beal’s spot on the road. The Bulls perimeter defense is lacking and the Wizards have been extremely efficient without John Wall. Beal also has the Bulls number scoring 39 points against them last time accumulating 67.3 fantasy points. I don’t expect a repeat on the road, but a big game should be expected here
SMALL FORWARD – Jonathon Simmons vs MIL $5500
The Magic are the next big dumpster fire in the NBA, but someone has to play and Simmons has logged 34 and 35 minutes respectively over his last two games. MILWAUKEE is a legit team with something to play for, but Simmonds has double-digit points in six straight games. I like his chances of hitting value here.
POWER FORWARD – Ben Simmons vs LAC $8700
Simmons is in a great spot at home against the Clippers who simply don’t have it since trading away Blake Griffin. Simmons has been posting numbers lately and should be primed for a big game. Simmons has tightened up on defense too further raising his ceiling in this game. Roll with Simmons in confidence.
CENTER – Pau Gasol @ GS $5800
There’s nobody better for the Spurs right now in big games. The Spurs are going to take their best shot in this one, and Gasol will get a bunch of touches for in this one. Check out the price tag for Gasol in this one… he’s dirt cheap relative to the volume he’s going to get and he’s had great success against the Warriors. Take the value and spend big elsewhere tonight.
