Today’s NBA Slate features two pretty good games, but no significant injuries have been announced so far. Today is going to be all about finding which players are slightly overpriced or underpriced on each site.
Taj Gibson (5300 DK, 5200 FD): This is the obvious play on both sites given his pricing and season performance. Gibson has averaged 26.4 FD FPs over the season, but his price has dropped because he’s only exceeded that one time in his last 7 games. Versus the Lakers I would expect him to perform better than average. Probability of top 3 positional value: DK 50.4% DK, 83.3% FD.
Jimmy Butler (9500 DK, 9500 FD): This is only a core play on Fanduel for me given the disparity in percentage of cap he costs. The T-Wolves are projected to get 118 points compared to their season average of 109.6 today, so I expect Jimmy Butler to do better than his season average today. On DK they adjusted his price to reflect that and on FD, they didn’t. Probability of top 3 positional value: DK 24.1%, FD 87.05%.
Julius Randle (6700 DK, 7500 FD): Randle has seen a nice uptick in minutes over the past two games with 31 and 37, respectively; however, in the game with 31 he was on pace to get 36 if the game was closer. With the potential of continuing to see minutes starting in a 3, Randle is underpriced right now. Probability of top 3 positional value: DK 49.2%, FD 55.15%.
