Which useful trend or statistic stuck out most during your research?

Notorious: The Hornets may have the largest home/road splits of any team in basketball. They are 1-10 on the road and 8-3 at home. Tonight they are playing in Charlotte against a short-handed Warriors’ team that loves to push the tempo. Big things are in store for the Hornets tonight when it comes to DFS.

meansy53: In 433 games with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson averages 29.7 fantasy points per game. In 56 games without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson averages 25.9 fantasy points per game.

Stevietpfl: In 60.4 minutes without Curry, Green, and McCaw; Durant and Klay Thompson both have usage rates over 30%. Durant is averaging 1.26 fantasy points per minute, while Klay is averaing 0.79 fantasy points per minute.

SBK: Zach Randolph has played at least 30 minutes in four of the last six games – a big feat for any King – and has a clearer path to playing time with WCS out.

What’s your hot take of the day?

Notorious: Elfrid Payton gets a triple-double against the Hawks, but doesn’t have more than 12 points, rebounds, or assists.

meansy53: DeMarcus Cousins records a triple double.

Stevietpfl: Kevin Durant scores 40+ actual points and goes for 65+ fantasy points

SBK: Jamal Murray scores 30+ real points

Who will you be most overweight on compared to the field and why?

Notorious: Rajon Rondo – It’s hard not to love him in this spot. He has scored at least 36 fantasy points in three straight games and draws one of the best possible matchups. On the season, Denver is ranked 28th in DvP and 27th in efficiency against point guards.

meansy53: DeMarcus Cousins – Pelicans players in general will probably be chalky tonight, but I want to make sure every lineup I make has Boogie in it. This game has one of the highest totals on the slate, and there is absolutely no one on the Nuggets who can come close to slowing him down tonight.

Stevietpfl: Jamal Murray – I love this game tonight, and with all the interesting in the Pelicans, I’m going to run it back with Murray on the other side. Without Jokic and Millsap on the floor, Murray has a 30.1% usage rate, which is a 4.2% bump for him.

SBK: Draymond Green – He’s a little too cheap given the situation and he’s considerably cheaper than Durant with an almost comparable ceiling. I’m going to want a lot of exposure to DMC so most of my GSW exposure will likely come through Green.
