The 2014-15 NBA Season is starting to heat up with an eight game lineup for fantasy owners on November 4th. The lineup of games include LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers traveling to take on the Portland Trailblazers. In all five of the top ten scorers, rebounders and assist men are in action giving fantasy owners a ton of options.
Depending on how you want to build your roster the first game to consider a few fantasy players from is the Phoenix Suns taking on the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers enter the match up allowing a league high 118 points per game while the Suns are allowing the eight most points per game. The two players that come to mind is Eric Bledsoe ($7,700) and Kobe Bryant ($8,700) but the real value to help you save some of that cash comes from a player like Ed Davis ($4,300). Davis has at least double digits in each of the Lakers games this season.
The other fantasy match up to watch is the Houston Rockets at Miami Heat. This game features four of the NBA’s top players including James Harden and Chris Bosh. The fantasy bargain that will help you bank some extra cash for other players is Norris Cole. Prior to his poor outing over the weekend, Cole had put together back to back games with over 21 fantasy points at an excellent cost of $4,200.
Here are some of the other top fantasy bargains for FanDuel on November 4th.
Aaron Brooks, Chicago Bulls ($4,700): The Bulls are expected to be without Derrick Rose for the entire week after suffering sprained to both of his ankles. Brooks stepped up on Saturday scoring 16 points while dishing out five assists.
Steve Blake, Portland Trailblazers ($4,100): The Trailblazers starting point guard Damian Lillard is dealing with a abdomen injury. This could open up the door for Blake against a Cavaliers defense that is allowing over 27 assists per game.
Otto Porter, Washington Wizards ($4,700): Porter has been playing the role of shooting guard with Bradley Beal out. Porter scored 21 points with five rebounds, one assist and two rebounds in the teams match up against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Kendrick Perkins, Oklahoma City Thunder ($3,700): The Thunder will be without their top two scorers for the foreseeable future making Perkins value rise. The teams backup center is coming off his best game of the season finishing with 23 fantasy points.
Gary Neal, Charlotte Hornets ($4,100): This play might increase if Michael-Kidd Gilchrist misses any significant time. Neal scored 17 points with three rebounds and three assists in the teams game on Sunday.
Other notable FanDuel Bargains: Shane Larkin ($4,600), Chris Copeland ($5,100) and OJ Mayo ($5,100).
