Daily Fantasy NBA Picks, October 30th
Below are four players I’ll be targeting and building my GPP lineups around.
1. DeMarcus Cousins
Boogie is the top stud I’ll be targeting and inserting into my lineups tonight. He has a high floor and potentially the highest ceiling in the league each and every night. At one point last April he scored of 70 fantasy points in three of four games. Not only that, but Boogie gets to face the lowly Lakers tonight. I will be disappointed if he doesn’t hit 50 fantasy points tonight.
2. Damian Lillard
Sometimes it pains me to bring up Lillard as a care of my lineup but this should be a pretty fast paced game and he should see near 40 minutes. Lillard has a usage rater of 26, being a major focal point of the teams offense and this should continue with the departure of Aldridge in the off season. I’m looking for Damian to reach 40+ fantasy points tonight.
3. Emmanuel Mudiay
If you’re going to pay up for some studs (whether it’s Boogie/Lillard/etc) you will need some cheaper fill-ins. Mudiay is starting for Denver and played 35 minutes last game. He’s very turnover prone (which hurts more on FanDuel) but he also is extremely talented and has a huge ceiling for his price. He put up 25 FD Points last game, even with 10 turnovers, and easily has a ceiling of 40+. He will be in a competitive game with a high O/U so I like his chances to hit value tonight.
4. Joffery Lauvergne
Another value player, I expect his price to begin rising soon. Joffery only played 21 minutes last game but he also put up 21 FD points. His minutes may stay around 20 but if he continues to produce that should be enough due to how low his price is. His salary relief is key here really allowing room for you to get creative with super stars.
