DraftKings and FanDuel Slam Dunks, Sunday 2/11

Published

on

Today the Mavericks announced that Wesley Matthews, J.J. Barea, and Dirk Nowitzki would all miss tonight’s game versus the Rockets. The result is that there are going to be loads of minutes and usage available for other players.

Yogi Ferrell (3900 DK, 3900 FD), Doug McDermott (3500 DK, 3500 FD), and Harrison Barnes (6300 DK, 6800 FD): With Matthews and Barea out, that leaves just shy of 60 guard minutes a game to distribute among other players. With Devin Harris traded from the team, the guard rotation looks to be McDermott, Ferrell, and Smith starting, with Collinsworth being the only other wing to regularly get minutes this season. I expect Barnes to get extra minutes filling in as a wing since the Mavs have more back court depth today, and he will get a lot of extra usage with several high usage players out. Probability of top 3 positional value: Ferrell: 41.5% DK, 56.65% FD, McDermott 34.7% DK, 58.85% FD, Barnes 39.6% DK, 55.1% FD.

Alex is better known to fantasy players by his handle "Awesemo" from seeing him in every big tournament in the industry. Playing poker professionally from 2009-2015, he heard that daily fantasy was the next big game picking up steam, and he quickly saw the potential of the relatively new game. Growing his bankroll from 2015-2016, he made a big step in 2017 by claiming the #1 overall ranking on RotoGrinders for the year. After completing his primary objective, he was looking for what's next. Attending dozens of fantasy events, Alex realized that everyone was repeating the same story: wanting to be a great DFS player while holding down a full-time job. He realized that the resources available to fantasy players while great weren't enough to help hobbyists get to the level of competing with the top pros. Having met Tom Kennedy during the FanDuel Scottish Open, the two decided to take on the realm of fantasy content along with co-founder Eddie Lai. Alex creates his own projections for each sport he plays, publishing rankings derived directly from them updated for each major slate. He also writes strategy content for how to become a better DFS player in his Game Plan series. You can contact Alex by emailing support@awesemo.com.
