NBA DFS Picks, 10-31-15
Happy Halloween my cherished DFS pals. You don’t have to dress up or go trick or treating for Fantasy Jesus to drop a full sized candy bar in your bag in the form of a core 4. Let’s get to it.
1. C.J. Miles – Miles is a bit of a riskier option than previously, having moved back to the bench but at his price, especially at $4k on Draft Kings it’s hard to pass up. Shooting guard is tough tonight. Ordinarily I wouldn’t mind paying up at shooting guard, and Eric Bledsoe isn’t a bad idea but saving here and going Miles is a better option on a thin small forward night.
2. Carmelo Anthony – There are not that many options at Small Forward tonight. Paul George is a solid option but if you already have C.J. Miles then you probably don’t want to load up on anymore players from the game with the lowest over/under on the slate. Knicks vs. Wizards will be much more uptempo and Melo should have a field day being guarded primarily by Otto Porter. Save at SG and pay up for Melo.
3. Blake Griffin – I know telling you to pick Blake Griffin is obvious but it’s actually a deep slate for Power Foward. Favors is a good option as well but I’m fading the Brow. Blake has been absolutely dominant so far this year and look for him to toss around the Kings yet again. There is potential for a 60+ point night here.
4. Festus Ezeli – Ezeli may be high-owned tonight but the near-minimum priced starting center for the highest scoring team in the league should be high-owned. He should play 25 minutes just like his last start and it won’t be hard for him to hit value at $3100 on draft kings. Make sure you get Ezeli in your lineups.
