Playoff NBA Slam Dunks, Saturday 4/14

In the playoffs, teams tend to play their star players more minutes and reserves fewer. In addition, there aren’t any new injuries to create pricing inefficiencies. So what I’m seeing in today’s slate is opportunities to get the star players at lower prices than they deserve getting playoff minutes.

John Wall
8500 DK, 9400 FD
A points, A value both sites

John Wall averages nearly 40 minutes a game in his playoff career, and I don’t expect that to be any different this year. In the playoffs last year, he was priced in the mid 10ks on DraftKings, and his production this year has only been slightly lower on a per minute basis. Toronto is a negative matchup, but none of the teams in the playoffs are easy matchups defensively.

Draymond Green
7400 DK, 7000 FD

A points both sites, B value DK, A value FD

Draymond Green also is at a discount compared to last year’s playoffs: on DK he averaged around 8k and on FD he was about 8.5k on average. His production has been slightly worse in games without Curry this year, but I expect that to be an aberration because his usage and assists were higher in those games. Those factors combined make him one of the most inefficiently priced players on today’s slate.

Alex Baker
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].
