If you're new to daily fantasy basketball -- maybe you started your DFS journey during the MLB or NFL seasons, or maybe basketball is your sport and this will be your first year giving it a shot -- you're in for a treat. The NBA scene changes hugely on a week-to-week, day-to-day, and -- depending on injury news -- even a minute-to-minute basis, making every slate a unique one that requires an ever-changing approach.
With so much changing so quickly, we're here with plenty of tools to help you out. We have daily projections, a matchup heat map, a lineup optimizer, and a ton of other great resources to help give you an edge.
We'll also be coming at you with this primer every day, breaking down a few of the day's top plays at each price point.
Let's take a look at who you should target on today's main slate, which starts at 3:30 pm EST and contains three games.
Best of the Best
Andre Drummond (FanDuel Price: $10,500) - On a limited three-game slate, Drummond is far and away the top dog on Sunday. The Detroit Pistons' big man is enjoying perhaps his finest run of the season as he has dropped at least 58 FanDuel points in four of his last five games, averaging 17.0 points, 16.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 2.8 steals, and 1.6 blocks for 53.9 FanDuel points per game in that span. Drummond is in line for another big outing on Sunday as he faces the Brooklyn Nets, who have allowed the second-most FanDuel points to opposing centers. A large part of that is the Nets issues with rebounding. They allow 46.9 boards per game to opponents, the fourth-most in the league, and Drummond has averaged 15.1 boards per game, the most in the NBA.
