NBA DFS – 12/5/2018



Joel Embiid $10300 @ TOR – this is looking like my favorite stud on this slate. I hope his ownership comes down from people only looking at his game logs. He’s too cheap here and the Raptors have no one that can guard him.

Karl Anthony-Towns $9500 vs CHA – the Hornets frontcourt is just too little to match with him. He could be a sneaky play with all the other viable center plays


Brook Lopez $5200 vs DET – If Ersan is out that will only solidify his minutes even more. Any time Brook can be projected for 30+ minutes he should catch our eye. He also has a good history of going against Drummond which adds to my appeal

Steven Adams $6700 @ BKN – centers against the Nets is still a thing. A little pricey for me, but still needs to be considered in this matchup

Marc Gasol $8600 vs LAC – Great pace up spot here. Sometimes roster construction knocks guys in the 8-9k range out of consideration so just remember that before removing him from your player pool.

John Collins $6300 vs WAS – I’m getting tired of talking about these Hawks and Wizards… Collins is in play, but harder for me to get him in the lineup with his center-only eligibility

Tristan Thompson $7300 vs GSW – still rolling, still playing big minutes, only thing worrisome is the blowout risk. Leaning toward jumping off the Tristan train today


Jonas Valanciunas $4300 vs PHI – Embiid is one of the best at getting the opposing bigs in foul trouble. That gives more ways for Jonas to get a few extra minutes. That’s all he needs to reach value at this cheap price.

Cody Zeller $4000 @ MIN – KAT doesn’t play defense, especially against the annoying hustle players like Zeller

Alex Len $3500 vs WAS – GPP dart throw. Everyone is going to be on Dedmon and Len only played 4 minutes last game after mostly splitting the center minutes prior to that. If the rotation reverts back at all he could get you nice value

JaVale McGee – $4800 vs SA – minutes are down with Chandler joining the Lakers, but now his price is finally getting there. He only needs 25 minutes to get value here, which isn’t unreasonable at all. Still more a GPP play

Good talk and good luck
