NBA Player PrizePicks | May 9

Latest NBA DFS Content

Tobias Harris More Than 23.5 Fantasy Points

With Jalen McDaniels essentially being cut from the rotation in the last game, there will be more minutes for Harris to play. Even if he only plays 34 minutes, Stokastic’s PrizePicks NBA Player Projections Tool has Harris closer to 30 fantasy points tonight. Harris is locked into 36 minutes, and he could play even more, so it is really surprising to see this number set so low. Harris should blow this number out of the water.

Jamal Murray More Than 42.5 Fantasy Points

This number is higher than the previous game, but it is still too low. Murray is back playing in Denver, which has elevation, making it a massive spot for the Nuggets. Murray and Nikola Jokic should put on a show on their home floor. At this point, all of Murray’s projections look good — real points, assists, points + rebounds + assists — any play for him will be a more pick, but fantasy points gets the nod tonight. Murray should cover the over easily and earn a nice profit.

NBA Fantasy Point Projections (Premium)

Stokastic’s NBA DFS projections break down every element of a player’s projected performance and synthesize thousands of data points into one easy-to-use fantasy-point projection for each player that can be used as a reference for hand-building lineups or plugged into an optimizer to create hundreds of lineups within seconds. The player’s projections page also provides underlying data, including each player’s expected minutes played, usage rate, and breakdowns for each statistical scoring category (points, rebounds, assists, etc.).

As the competition becomes increasingly sophisticated, it’s important to know who the best plays are and who the best players are that no one else is talking about. NBA DFS ownership projections provide you insight into where the “field” (other players) will land and how you can pivot away from over-owned and target under-owned players to give yourself the competitive advantage you need to take down large GPPs.
