DraftKings and FanDuel NBA Slam Dunks, Tuesday 3/13

Alex Baker



Larry Nance Jr. (7000 DK, 7800 FD) – The Cavs are projected to score more than 8 points above their season average tonight. I think in addition to picking LeBron as your #1 stud on the night, Nance will be one of the best mid-salary plays. In addition to the matchup, Nance is likely to see big minutes with Tristan Thompson out. Probability of top 3 positional value: 17% DK, 16.55% FD.

Brook Lopez (5800 DK, 6700 FD) – Brook’s price hasn’t gone up enough to reflect his recent playing time, with over 30 in the past three games. The Nuggets play at about an average pace, but their defensive efficiency is below average, making this a positive matchup for the Lakers. His minutes have been inconsistent throughout the year, but it’s likely that he continues seeing his recent uptick in minutes versus a big Nuggets front court. Probability of top 3 positional value: 13.2% DK, 19.15% FD.

Frank Ntilikinka (3600 DK, 4000 FD) – With Courtney Lee out, Ntilikina saw two starts for the Knicks averaging 30.5 minutes, and when Lee returned, he still started and saw 31 minutes. It hasn’t been announced whether he will start tonight but we should have an idea with the Knicks tipping off 30 minutes after lock. If he starts again, his prices are absurdly cheap. Probability of top 3 positional value: 12.2% DK, 13.25% FD.

Alex is better known to fantasy players by his handle "Awesemo" from seeing him in every big tournament in the industry. Playing poker professionally from 2009-2015, he heard that daily fantasy was the next big game picking up steam, and he quickly saw the potential of the relatively new game. Growing his bankroll from 2015-2016, he made a big step in 2017 by claiming the #1 overall ranking on RotoGrinders for the year. After completing his primary objective, he was looking for what's next. Attending dozens of fantasy events, Alex realized that everyone was repeating the same story: wanting to be a great DFS player while holding down a full-time job. He realized that the resources available to fantasy players while great weren't enough to help hobbyists get to the level of competing with the top pros. Having met Tom Kennedy during the FanDuel Scottish Open, the two decided to take on the realm of fantasy content along with co-founder Eddie Lai. Alex creates his own projections for each sport he plays, publishing rankings derived directly from them updated for each major slate. He also writes strategy content for how to become a better DFS player in his Game Plan series. You can contact Alex by emailing [email protected].
