DK CBB 1/27: The Picket Fence
Alright grinders, hopefully everyone had a good Sunday. I was able to sweep the late slate and win 2 gpp’s. Would have swept the all day slate just with my late team. Oh well. On to another decent slate on DK.
Again, these are for GPP’s.
Today I feel the name of the game will be finding the value as a lot of guys are priced close as DK again has tightened their pricing.
Studs aka must have exposure to these guys
My only question if anyone can answer is who guards Portis tomorrow? Answer. A scrub. I expect big things from Portis who averages 32+ mins a game and over 11 shots a game. Tennessee is one of the worst defensive rebounding teams in the country (313 to be exact). Expect Portis to eat.
Jamel Artis 6600
Artis’ price has not caught up to him and he draws a weak Virginia Tech team that should be deflated still from blowing the Virginia game. Artis in his last 3 has gone, 30.5, 35 28.25 all exceeding value. He’s playing 30+ minutes a night and should as close to a lock for value at 4x as there is today.
*Cinmeon Bowers * 9000
Cinmeon should just be renamed DoubleDouble. The guy is just dominating the SEC and averaging a double double. He draws a good matchup in Texas A/M at home where he averages 5 more fantasy points per game compared to the road. With Henton and Dunn out, Bowers is the one guy I would pay up for tomorrow.
Nino Williams 6600
When your hot, your hot. There may not be a hotter player right now than Williams. 28.75/38/26.75 in his last 3 against some very solid bigs. His matchup is a bit tough, but with the up-tempo that WV plays, it will force KSU to speed up their game to be able to hang with them.
Lebryan Nash 7600
I truly think Nash is going to be really low owned tomorrow. He has struggled as of late and his price has dropped over 1k. However some think Forte is the oil to this engine, but to me it’s Nash. He does everything for this team. I think Forte is also priced about right, but with him he is just like Cooney. He can score at will, but he does very little else. I think Nash has a very solid game at home in a big conf matchup.
Others up for consideration (Qualls, Finney-Smith, Graham)
The Grinders aka the value guys
Briante Weber/Melvin Johnson 5200/5900
Weber and Johnson are two interesting plays tomorrow. They are both cheap. They both do a bit of everything and they both take a decent amount of shots. My only worry is VCU spreads their playing time where these guys are getting 25-30 mins instead of 30+. I think Weber is safer to reach value in this game than Johnson, but both should be good salary relief guys for your rosters
Leslee Smith 4100
This is strictly a gpp play and maybe a stretch. Pitchford could be out for Nebraska as he was ejected the last game against Sparty. If he is, Smith should get the start. My only worry is the pace in this game. Michigan has 0 bigs and Smith could be a sneaky play.
Isaac Copeland 4900
I don’t know how much longer this guy will be a secret but it seems he has earned his spot and minutes going forward. His last 3 games were 31/24/21 and his price has climbed 2 k almost in the past couple weeks. Stainbrook will battle with Smith which leaves Reynolds on Copeland. I think he will be very highly owned so fade at your own risk, but he’s been on fire.
Others to consider (Dee Davis, James Robinson, Cameron Wright)
Florida cheap guys- I just can’t trust this team and Donovan’s rotations
JJ Frazier- this is my Qualls lesson learned. Fade after career game.
Zak Irvin/Walton Jr- Walton is hurt and Irvin just doesn’t seem to want to take over games. This game could be 50-49 and DFS hell.
Death Train Conductor: Jimmie Taylor. You’ve been warned.
Previous Conductors: Holt, forgot his name, Isaiah Hicks
Will update in the AM with more research if I find any other values. Comments are appreciated
Again, may the odds be ever in your favor
