NBA CRUSH SPOT 07/30/20

NBA CRUSH SPOT
July 30th, 2020
By Brandon Silvers

 

For those of you who have read this article before, welcome back for another take of NBA CRUSH SPOT! For all those newbies, my name is Brandon Silvers and I hope you see that you like so that you many keep finding your way back! Let’s talk some hoops!

I will specify in this article whether or not the player I mention is cash or tournament, and the numbers will reflect my decision

Example: FPPM(Fantasy Points Per Minute ) x Projected Minutes = Projected Total

Keep in mind the NBA is constantly changing throughout the day and most likely all the way up to game time, and if I have time I will update my article with any changes. Check periodically through the day just to make sure.

This version of “Bubble Ball” is starting off much like a normal season, Anthony Davis controversy! It looks as if AD will be ready to go tonight. The other news I’m watching is what path the Pelicans choose to go down with the Zion injury. I just read that he is in the shootaround which means he is most likely available in some capacity.

PG- Reggie Jackson
       FD: $3,800
       DK: $4,600

With Lou Williams out and Patrick Beverly sidelined with an injury the Clippers are very shallow at the going guard position. Jackson is very familiar with handling the rock as he did most of his career in Detroit. He leads the second unit in scoring and I have him locking in at 23 minutes and .95 FPPM tonight. Lock him in on cash games and don’t look back.

Also Consider: Mike Conley, Alonzo Ball

SG- Jordan Clarkson
FD: $4,300
DK: $4,200

I believe JC is a must play in cash formats tonight. Firs and foremost, Utah will be moving forward without Bojan Bogdanovich for the remainder of the season. JC has averaged right around a 25% team usage rating (4th best on team) right behind Bojan respectively. He hovers around the 1 FPPM grid (FD-0.94, DK-0.98), and should benefit in the form of minutes due to the Bojan injury.

Obviously the past few scrimmage games will not be a reflection of everyone’s minutes moving forward, and we can almost guarantee to see 2 of these guys (Mitchell/Clarkson/ Coonley) on the floor at all times

Also Consider: Donovan Mitchell, Josh Hart, Paul George

SF- Brandon Ingram
FD: $7,300
DK: $8,300

Ingram is in a good position vs his former Lakers team. In his past 4 matchups vs LBJ and the Lakers, Ingram has averaged 35.7 FPTS per game. His pricetag on FanDuel is $7.3K, and if he hits the average thats over 5x Value with a ceiling right at 47. He should see his usual 33+ minutes at 1.17 FPPM. You do the math!

Also Consider: Dion Waiters(1.16 FPPM), Lebron James(1.51 FPPM)

PF- Anthony Davis
FD: $10,400
DK: $10,000

All signs are pointing towards the Brow being a for sure thing for tonight’s game, although nothing has been confirmed yet, I suggest monitoring this closely. He missed the most recent game vs the Pelicans, but other than that, he seems to steamroll his next opponent in every previous matchup. A whopping 65.6 FPPG vs his former team sets him into the elite category. Should he play, I predict he may be a bit below his normal playing time at right around 32+ minutes. When you add in his 1.52 FPPM, I can see AD around 50 FPTS easy.

Also Consider:
Marcus Morris(30Min X .88 FPPM)
Zion Williamson( 28 Min? X 1.22 FPPM)
Royce O’Neale(GPP)

C- Ivaca Zubac

FD: $4,500
DK: $,500

Surprisingly, Zubac has the highest usage ratong if all centers on the slate tonight (16.4%). He doesn’t always get the most minutes(18.1), but he does make the most of his time on the court (1.15 FPPM). He runs the floor well which meshes with the team pace. I predict Zubac lands somehere between 18-22 minutes and 20-22 FPTS which leads him to a 5x fantasy performance, which is fine for all formats.

Also Consider: Rudy Gobert, Javale McGee

I hope your just as happy as I am about this monumental day! Good luck on your contests!

He has six points and nine shots on goal in his past three games and 14 points in his last 8 games.

Stack With: Valeri Nichushkin & Andre Burakovsky

WINGING IT

Mike Hoffman , FLA 

Hoffman can be stacked but also remains a standalone option against the Golden Knights. He has 15 points and 36 SOG in his past 13 games.

Stack With: Jonathan Huberdeau , Evgenii Dadonov, Keith Yandle and Vincent Trochec

Mason Appleton, WPG

He has two goals and eight SOG in his past four. Appleton is among the cheaper options in FanDuel DFS contests and brings high-end exposure as a value play against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday.

Stack With:  Blake Wheeler & Nikolaj Ehlers

D-FENCE

Jeff Petry, MTL

the Anaheim Ducks, who have scored the second fewest goals in the NHL (132). Petry  has five points and 13OG in his past five games.

Stack With: Brendan Gallagher, Phillip Danault, Nick Suzuki, Tomas Tatar

GOALIE

Brian Elliott, PHI

He’s 4-0-1 including two shutouts and a .935 save percentage in his past five games. Elliott has a GREAT against the NJ who are expected to be without their best center Nico Hischier & defenseman Sami Vatanen.

Friday’s Results

Brad Wannamaker- 26.7 FPTS – 7.6 X VALUE
Kevin Huerter- 26.7 FPTS – 5.8 X VALUE
Marcus Morris- 36.2 FPTS – 6.4 X VALUE
TOP VALUE
Maxi Kleber- 41.7 FPTS – 10.7 X VALUE

We come back from the weekend not skipping a beat. We have a 10 game slot that looks like this.

Dallas Mavericks @ Atlanta
New York Knicks @ Indiana Pacers
Orlando Magic @ Charlotte Hornets
Golden State Warriors @ Washington Wizards
Boaton Celtics @ Atlanta Hawks
Philadelphia 76ers @ Miami Heat
Phoenix Suns @ Brooklyn Nets
Detroit Pistons @ Memphis Grizzlies
Minnesota Timberwolves @ San Antonio Spurs
Sacramento Kings @ Los Angeles Kingsqp+

 

Point Guard

Malcolm Brogdon

At a clip of 34 minutes per game in his last 2 games, Brogdon has been able to run the point without any hiccups with 31 and 44 FPTS respectively. His matchup with Dallas should be a little easier considering Doncic is out. He will have 30+ in both minutes and fantasy points.

Also Consider: De’Aron Fox, Shabazz Napier, Reggie Jackson, Ja Morant

Shooting Guard 

Lou Williams

I’m going back to the well with Lou because he has proven himself again and again as a bench player who consistently meets value. Over his last 10 he has seen 28.4 minutes with an average of 30.59 FPPG (1.07 FPPM)

Also Consider: Spencer Dinwiddie, Darian Lee, Bruce Brown

CENTER of Attention

Matthews is on a three game point streak with 2 goals, 2 assists, and 10 shots on goal. He is sitting right below 20 FPPG and i believe there will be plenty of action in the high paced matchup vs the Panthers.

Also Consider:Mike Zibanejad, Sean Couturier, Aleksander Barkov

Marner extended his scoring streak to 4 games and 5 points on Saturday with his game winning goal. On the season he has 51 points in 41 games and is on pace for 20+ goals this season.

NBA CRUSH SPOT 1/31/20

NBA CRUSH SPOT
JANUARY 31ST, 2020
BY BRANDON SILVERS

Point Guard

Eric Bledsoe

In his last 2 games, and knce he hit the 30 minute mark, Bledsoe has been on a tear. He put up 5u.w, and 37.1 FPTS(47.15 FPPG) for a 1.54 FPPM output. Most people will shy away from Denver’s 7th ranked offense, but I look for him to continue the streak if Monte Morris is guarding him.

Also Consider: Kyrie Irving, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose

Value: Jalen Brunson, J. Morant

Shooting Guard

James Harden

Since 2017 James Harden has averaged 51 FPPG vs the Dallas Mavericks no matter the countless number of oppenents they put in front of him. The shooting guard position looks quite healthy tonight sp choose wisely

Also Consider: Devin Booker,  Zach LaVine

Also Consider: Kyrie Irving, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose

Small Forward

Eric Gordon

Gordon has averaged 36 FPPG since once again taking on a more prominent role in the starting lineup. He will get a 22nd ranked D and the Dallas Mavericks who will look to run and gun. A game stack here is not out of the question.

Also Consider: Jae Crowder, Daniel House, Maxi Kleber

Power Forward

Zion Williamson

As he begins his career, we see something of a mutation in Zion. He has been an instant impact to the league and I cant wait to see what becomes of this young mans career.  He has averaged 1.3FPPM (23min) in his 4 games as a pro and draws the 24th ranked Memphis Grizzlies. I like this to be the highest scoring event of the night.

Also Consider: Jarrett Allen, Serge Ibaka

Value: Myhailiuk,  K. Anderson

Center

Jonas Valincuinas

I already stated my opinion in this game and im sticking by it with Jonas. In an earlier meeting he put up 32 FPTS in just 20 min. He has seen 30+ in B2B games and should be in line for 6X value.

Also Consider: Hasaan Whiteside, Steven Adams, Brook Lopez

Value: Christiano Felicio

NHL WHO’S ON THE ICE 1/32/20

NHL WHO’S ON THE ICE
JANUARY 31ST, 2020
BY BRANDON SILVERS

 

Today’s 7 game NHL main slate rrccomendations by Brandon Silvers from @DfsCheatsheet

CENTER of Attention

Dylan Larkin

In his past 3 games, Larkin has been an effective part of Detroit’s 1st line. He has amassed 2 goals, 3 assists, and 7 shots on goal with an averahe of 20.8 FPPG. He gets the Rangers and goalie Shesterkin who hasn’t seen under a  90% save rate in his small 3 game career. Larkin and the Wings find a way to get it done.

Also Consider: Niklas Backstrom

Stack With: Tyler Bertuzzi & Filip Zadina

Winging It

Alex Ovechkin

Ovechkin is in his own category and nearly impossible to stop. He has put up some insanely good numbers lately. In his last 4 he has 9 goals, 1 Assist, and 17 shots on goal totalling 144.3 FPTS (36.1 FPPG)

STACK WITH: NIKLAS BACKSTROM & TOM WILSON

Leon Draisitl

Leon is the playmaker for the Edmonton Oilers and has his work cut out facing the defending champions at home vs the Saint Louis Blues. In his last 6 he has 3 goals, 9 assists, and 19 shots on goal for an average of 24.6 FPPG. Look for him to distribute the puck to the scorers.

Also Consider: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Tyler Bertuzzi

D-Fence

Justin Braun

Braun has emerged in the past two weeks to have some of the best numbers of his career. The 3rd line guy is a sneaky play that could pay high dividends. In his last 5, the Flyer defenseman has 3 goals, 1 assist, and 7 shots on goal with 13.6 FPPG

Also Consider: Shae Theodore, J. Lauzon, T. Sanheim

GOALIE

Ilya Samsonov

Samsonov is 10-0 in his last 10 starts including a shutout. He has averaged a 94% save rate and will Face an Aneheim offense who ranks 27th in efficiency. Pay up and call it a day!
