DraftKings and FanDuel NBA Slam Dunks, Monday 3/12

NBA DFS projections No House Advantage are today's most accurate projections for daily fantasy basketball players


Pau Gasol (DK 5700, FD 6000) – Whenever LaMarcus Aldridge sits, Gasol’s usage shoots up.  In two of the last three games without Aldridge, Gasol went for approximately 50 DK points and 9-10X his value.  But in the third game, he only played 20 minutes, because it was a back-to-back, and finished with a sub-par line.  There is some risk here as this game is also part of a back-to-back, but with Aldridge likely returning for tomorrow’s game, I expect Gasol to see heavier minutes tonight and either rest or play a more limited role tomorrow.  Probability of top-3 positional value:  69.45% FD, 46.9% DK.

Bam Adebayo (DK 3800, FD 3500) –  Another injury fill-in, Adebayo, should start and see lots of minutes in Hassan Whiteside’s absence.  He’s not the most gifted offensive player, but he can rack up stats in a variety of categories and should easily hit value at his current price tags given the amount of time he’ll spend on the court.  There also should be a few extra shots to go around for all the Heat players with Dwyane Wade out for tonight’s game.  Probability of top-3 positional value: 55.5% FD, 44.7% DK.


A self-proclaimed U.S. history buff, stats enthusiast, and rabid fan of anything Detroit (yes, even the Lions), Alex started playing daily fantasy sports in 2013 and never looked back. After graduating with a degree in mathematics from Washington University in St. Louis in 2008, he began developing advanced statistical models and applied his unique skill-set first to poker, then as a full-time DFS player. He has since dominated DFS, becoming a fixture on leaderboards and cementing his position as the top-ranked overall player according to RotoGrinders. Competing in most guaranteed prize pool tournaments, he has ranked in the top 3 across major sports, including NBA, NFL, NHL, PGA, and MLB. He enjoys sharing his knowledge of fantasy sports with new and experienced players alike. Career Highlights: No. 1 Overall Ranking; 14x FanDuel $100k winner, 11x DraftKings Hundred-Thousandaire; 20x Live Final qualifier.
