The new DraftKings and FanDuel Single Entry Picks are LIVE for 1/26! We get a 3 game slate with some key injuries to go over. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are going to miss some time due to health protocols. Lou Williams immediately becomes a priority target for me on all sites. $5,800 on DraftKings and $6,000 on FanDuel is just too cheap for the amount of usage that Williams will have in tonight’s game. We have seen Lou Williams perform well in this situation before and I expect him to smash value tonight.
Assuming Russell Westbrook is out, Bradley Beal is my top pay up option of the day. Beal is going to have a shot volume of 25-30 shot attempts barring foul trouble and should get plenty of opportunities for rebounds and assists as well. He easily has the highest ceiling on the slate and is in a favorable matchup against Houston.
If Christian wood is out, I’m locking in DeMarcus Cousins. He will most likely be a free square on DraftKings and heavily owned on FanDuel but, he is still cheap enough to the point where he can smash value easily. The matchup against Washington plays into his favor as they run the floor at a high pace and play no defense.
In order to get the best possible Single Entry lineup, I like to focus on the players that have a high probability of paying off their salary or have a ceiling that could lead them to be the highest-scoring player on the slate. That is why you will see such a small player pool in this sheet daily. I am focusing on the best plays of that day because my goal is to make the best lineup possible.
Priority Targets are the players that I want in my lineup. How you get these players in your lineup is truly up to your style of creating lineups. Members often give those players a thumb up in FantasyCruncher or lock those players in. Again, this is really a personal preference.
Ronin Tier Members get a $20 MONTHLY voucher to FantasyCruncher. This is my favorite optimizer in the industry and I use it daily to make my lineups across all sports.
This is a sample of my NBA Building Block. This is where I identify who I would start my Single Entry lineup with DAILY. These players will be in my core for Single Entry contests. Typically, I lock in those four players and crunch my Single Entry lineup from there.
As you can see, there will be four coaches posting Building Blocks before each NBA main slate. How you use this content is up to you. Some members choose to use a thumb on each player that appears in a coach’s Building Block. Odds are if a player appears in all four Building Blocks, it might be a good day to lock them in.
We want to make DFS as easy as possible for you at an affordable cost. The NBA Study Hub is how I start my lineup building and where I go to upload my projections into FantasyCruncher. Sim models and heat maps in the NBA Study Hub are GREAT for those 1v1 or 2v2 player comparisons to determine who is the best play for that day.
Discord is a great place to learn how to improve in DFS and continue to get better. We want sustained success so we must keep striving to get better every day. I host a FantasyCruncher Strategy session every Sunday @ 11 AM EST to go over the week in NBA DFS and identify any strategies we can use to be better going forward!
