The NBA fantasy action continues on FanDuel tonight as fantasy owners look to walk away with some big time cash. One of those contests is the $1 Million Wednesday NBA MEGA Slam that pays out a top prize of $100k. Along with paying out a top prize of $100k the contest also pays out at least $50 dollars to the top 8,750th places.
If your looking to go a little cheaper than the $25 entry fee you could turn your attention to the $250K NBA Shot that pays out a top prize of $20k but at a cheap entry fee of just $2 dollars. If your new and want to spend a few more dollars you could also consider looking at the $125 Layup that pays out a top prize of $10k with just a $5 dollar entry fee.
Now since we looked at a few of the top FanDuel tournaments to cash in on tonight that could deliver a nice payday. Lets take a look at which of tonight’s NBA contests are the top fantasy matchups for FanDuel owners. In all 20 teams are in action including all the top fantasy options including Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook who are both averaging over 52 fantasy points through their first four games.
Along with those two stars tonight could be the night to build from each of their contests as well. Curry will look to lead his Golden State Warriors against the Los Angeles Clippers in a contest that is currently slated for the highest over/under line of the night at 218 points.
The second highest game of the night features Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder going against the Toronto Raptors with an over/under line slated at 211 points. Other top games features the Houston Rockets/Orlando Magic at 209 and the Phoenix Suns/Sacramento Kings matchup at 207 points.
In the end here is our NBA FanDuel lineup for Wednesday November 4th, 2015.
PG – Stephen Curry ($10,800): The debate could be made to use a few of the top Fantasy Stars tonight. In the end we elected to go with the Warriors guard that has not posted less than 43 fantasy points in any game this season.
PG – Russell Westbrook ($10,800: In the end we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to use these two top fantasy stars. The decision though comes at a big price tag as the two combine to take up over a third of our entire salary cap leaving us looking for cheap FanDuel bargains.
SG – Rodney Stuckey ($4,700): Stuckey has been a solid fantasy option this season scoring at least 22 fantasy points in three of his first four games. The down side is he has the ability to lay a bad game nearly any night of the week. That being said we like his chances coming off his 30.8 fantasy performance in his last outing.
SG – Jamal Crawford ($4,900): While Crawford is coming off the bench for the Los Angeles Clippers we still like his production. Add in the fact that tonight’s contest against the Warriors could be a high scoring affair the Clippers will need a few of their shooters to put together a big game to keep up.
SF – Bojan Bogdanovic ($4,000): Our Fantasy Sleeper of the night is the Brooklyn Nets guard/forward. While he is a big time gamble tonight he has posted back to back games with at least 18 fantasy points. That gamble is worth it while saving some salary cap space for the rest of our lineup.
SF – Tobias Harris ($6,900): As we stated up top that the Magic/Rockets matchup is one of the top fantasy contests of the night. In the end we passed up on James Harden and Victor Oladipo but we like Harris tonight at a cheaper salary figure.
PF – Blake Griffin ($10,000): It is hard to pass up an opportunity to play any fantasy option that will almost guarantee to give you 35 plus fantasy points a night. Add in the fact that tonight’s contest with the Warriors should be a fast paced contest look for Griffin as well as Chris Paul to put together big games to keep their teams in this contest.
PF – Luis Scola ($4,100): The Raptors big man is coming off his best game of the season finishing with his first double double of the season. The performance also helped Scola reward his fantasy owners with a 38.9 fantasy performance on Wednesday Night. Scola should have an opportunity to produce tonight in a game that is projected to see a ton of points scored on both ends of the floor.
C – Festus Ezeli ($3,500): If DeMarcus Cousins was healthy and in the lineup tonight we might have stacked the big three together. In the end we elected to go cheap with Ezeli tonight but we also recommend monitoring the status of his teammate Andrew Bogut who continues to be a game time decision. If Bogut plays we suggest looking at another cheap option such as Bismack Biyombo for the Raptors.
