Last night was actually a really fun night to play daily fantasy basketball. There were injuries, late scratches and target scores plummeted because of it. Tonight, we’ve got another fun night with 11 games. Here are my NBA daily fantasy basketball sleepers/value and cash game picks for Wednesday November 11, 2015 – along with a recap of last night.

Here are the Target Scores I am shooting for on each site. Remember, injuries & late scratches can alter these throughout the night, but it’s important to build a lineup that can somewhat comfortably project out to this score. If your players need to all career-ball to reach these projections …. you either need to get really lucky or start a new lineup.
Here are the players I’m building cash game lineups around tonight:
Draftkings: Cousins, Draymond Green, Zach Randolph
Curry, Cousins, Marc Gasol
Curry, Zach Randolph, Rondo
I decided to move off Curry in cash games because Warriors play tomorrow at 5pm in Minnesota.
G – TJ McConnell
G – Nik Stauskas
G – Isaiah Canaan
Marcus Smart (If he plays/starts)
G – Devin Harris
G – Marco Belinelli
F – Jerami Grant
F – James Johnson
F- Evan Turner
F – Luke Babbitt
F – Dwight Powell
11/10 Recap: Last night was like a turbo – it was over within 3 1/2 hours of the night starting, so that was cool. There were injuries to KD, AD and Wiggins was a late scratch. Unfortunately I had Wiggins in 3/4 of my Fanduel tournament lineups so I couldn’t late swap him on that site. Ended up 0-4, but I made some good decisions playing Sullinger, Favors, Evan Turner, and DeRozan …. all were somewhat low owned, and reached or exceeded projection so that was exactly what I was looking for. If John Wall had hit value and Wiggins doesn’t get late scratched – I would have probably cashed pretty easily.
Tournaments: 0-4 (Fanduel … best score = 248.4)
Cash Games: 15-0
Cash games were a different story. I had KD and Wiggins in all my Yahoo cash game lineups – and was lucky enough to see the Wiggins news cross and was able to late swap him for Eric Gordon. If you want to play NBA DFS seriously, I suggest getting an alerts system via a mobile app – or you can turn on notifications from specific twitter accounts that report NBA injuries – so every time that account tweets, it alerts you. Right now I use a mix of twitter and FantasyLabs – which is an extremely useful tool – but their mobile app was the one that actually alerted me to Wiggins not playing first.
Notice that I missed the target score by quite a bit in my Yahoo lineup below, but because of the injuries, Wall playing poorly, Wiggins getting scratched and most everyone playing Whiteside … you could miss the target score but still clean up for a real nice profit on the night.
