NBA GPP Core Picks, November 6th
A busy NBA slate tonight featuring featuring 10 games and a slew of super stars to choose from. As usual, my goal with this article is to point out a core group of players I will be targeting in large GPPs. I play primarily on FD, so that’s where pricing and scoring info will come from but these players can be used as a core on Draftkings as well.
Yeah, Harden has had a pretty bad start to the season and because of that his current price is only 9.8k. He plays damn near 40 minutes per game and has a lovely match up against the Kings. On a night where there are a bunch of other super stars playing Harden may go overlooked due to his start. It’s not often you will be able to get Harden at less than 10k and under owned. He’s worth the risk tonight in GPPs.
Andre is in absolute beast mode right now and is still only 9.3k. Detroit is clicking as a team right now and with Monroe gone, Drummond is FEASTING in the paint. He has back to back games of 20 points and 20 rebounds and he’s facing a Suns team tonight that has two big guys down low, but you still can’t beat his upside/ceiling for the current price.
If you’re going to be spending up you will need to save money – Thorton is a solid value play. The O/U for the HOU/SAC game is the highest of the night at 216 and Thorton has been hitting value to start the season and seeing around 30 minute/game. This should be a fast paced, run and gun game and at 4.1k, Thorton has a great chance to break 30 FD points.
For his price, Randle is another solid play for cheap with a high ceiling. The BK/LAL game has an O/U of 211 and Randle is seeing 30 minutes per game. His in an advantageous situation and with the big names at PF tonight, he could potentially go overlooked. He has 40 point potential which is what I’m looking for at his price in a GPP.
