NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball – Sleepers + Cash Game Picks 11/8

Here are my NBA daily fantasy basketball sleepers/value picks and cash game advice for Sunday November 8, 2015. Sunday’s are good day’s to play because the casual NFL guy might throw some money down especially if the early games didn’t go so well. Remember that the action starts earlier today if you want to get in on the full slate of games to pick from.

Here is my target score for each daily fantasy site. If you are new to this blog, I’m trying to build lineups where I can project my players will total out at this number fairly comfortably. If your players all need to have career nights to achieve the target score – throw the lineup out and start over.

Fanduel: 285
Draftkings: 255
Yahoo: 250

Here are the daily fantasy players that I’m targeting tonight in my cash games depending on which site I play on:

Draftkings: Monta Ellis
Fanduel: Julius Randle, Drummond
Yahoo: Julius Randle, Brandon Knight, Lowry

11/7 Recap: I thought yesterday would be a good cash game day & just average for tournaments, but I was wrong. Turns out my cash games were average, but my tournament lineups were above average.

Last Nights Results:
Tournaments: 5-2 (Fanduel)
Cash Games: 11-11 (Yahoo)

My lineup took me less time to fill out than any other I’ve filled out this week. I decided to be lazy and just roster Curry, Harden, Davis. I was happy I could add Leonard – who didn’t really provide the upside I needed, but he was solid. All my sleepers were pretty easy plays other than Casspi. When I set the lineup, it was unclear if all the Kings players were suiting up – turns out they all did so it hurt Casspi a bit, but he still hit the projection I had him at. Curry & Davis didn’t reach value, but they scored enough to get me into the cash. Overall it was another profitable night.

Next week I’m going to push the envelope in at least a few lineups per night since I’m putting up a good target score, but I believe I need at least 1 star player under 10% ownership to get that big score I’m looking for. For example last night it would have been Rondo. When Curry, Davis and other stars play – it takes the ownership from others at that position … so I’m going to be fading stars in some lineups in favor of other stars who aren’t as popular selections.
