Mike Conley and Your Daily Hoops Cheatcodes* (3-29-13)

Conley

This is going to be a post for all you daily fantasy basketball junkies. Daily hoops can be extremely exhausting due to the massive day-to-day swings in player usage and match ups so this will serve as a great place to start when constructing your lineup.

These lineups are specific to DraftStreet, Draft Day, and FanDuel, thus it’s important to note that the scoring and position requirements at these sites are slightly different. One player might offer more value at one site, but not another.

I’ve used our extremely useful apps (for DraftStreet go here, Draft Day here, and FanDuel here) as well as some personal strategy to create a lineup for each site. I’ll be putting up two lineups each day on a rotating basis (DS/DD on Monday, DD/FD on Tuesday, FD/DS on Wednesday, and so on). I encourage you to utilize the apps I linked to above as they are some of the most valuable tools available in the daily fantasy community.

Finally, you should not just blindly follow these lineups. Very often guys are ruled out as it gets closer to tip-off and player usage becomes clearer. There are tons of places to check for pre game updates, but I’ve found Rotoworld and Twitter searches work best for me.

Game Notes:

– The Nuggets allow over 36 fantasy points per game to opposing point guards, which sets up nicely for Deron Williams. He is finally looking healthy and is playing well enough to be started in a matchup like this one.

– Mike Conley is in the midst of a career-best stretch, scoring 30 fantasy points in six-straight games. Memphis faces question marks surrounding Marc Gasol’s health and Zach Randolph’s relationship with coach Lionel Hollins, so Conley will be heavily relied upon to exploit Jeremy Lin’s awful defense.

– If you are looking for a player with high upside tonight, Denver is a great place to start. Andre Miller, Andre Iguodala, and Wilson Chandler will all pick up some extra playing time with Ty Lawson doubtful due to a heel injury. Any one of those three can go for 40 fantasy points in a single night and they all have floors of around 20 points against Brooklyn.

– The RotoViz app loves Tyson Chandler, but since he is doubtful for tonight I consulted our always-useful Backup Explorer app. Kenyon Martin is the biggest beneficiary of Chandler’s absence, which makes complete sense given K-Mart has posted two 35-fantasy points games since being inserted into the starting lineup. The Bobcats’ frontcourt is just putrid, making this an easy decision for me.

– Reggie Evans is in beast mode right now, grabbing at least 22 boards in three of his last six games. He’s usually not going to give you a whole lot on the offensive end, but stretches like this show how Evans can have value in the daily hoops game. Denver ranks 27th in the league against opposing big men, and while I don’t expect another 20 rebounds, 10-12 boards is definitely in play.

– Jeff Green and Jordan Crawford are both appealing plays against Atlanta, a team really struggling to defend over its last ten games. Green is on fire with KG out indefinitely and Crawford has scored at least 20-fantasy points every game since picking up Courtney Lee’s extra minutes.

– Finally, Anthony Davis is starting to settle in after struggling through a somewhat disappointing rookie year so far. The Brow is averaging 16 points, 10 rebounds and almost 2 blocks on 54% shooting in the month of March. Miami is also a solid matchup, giving up over 14 boards a game.

Justin Watson is Primed for a 2nd Year Breakout

In my recent article on Scott Miller I took a breather from telling you why the diminutive phenom is a must add, so that I could briefly profile his teammate, second-year WR Justin Watson. If Watson is interesting enough to warrant a mention in another player’s article, he’s probably worth

Opportunity Scores: The Top Landing Spots For Rookie Wide Receivers

A few years ago, RotoViz OG Kevin Cole created a formula for determining which teams were the best landing spots for rookie wide receivers. In fantasy and real football, performance is a function of opportunity. Whether the opportunity was created through talent, draft position, or lack of competition, it doesn’t

Hunter Henry: Ready to Breakout Again?

It has been said in the past that NFL stands for Not For Long, as well as No Fun League and of course the lesser used National Football League. All three may be true, but the first pretty much sums up the fleeting nature of the game, and the careers
