Daily Fantasy NBA Picks for FantasyDraft – 2/5/16

 

By Sam Nedimyer @RotoNedi

 

Another mega-slate of NBA action is on tap for Friday night and the usual suspects are primed for big nights. One source of cheap, high-floor players is the matchup in Brooklyn. Both the Nets and the Kings are punching bags for their opponents at nearly every position and there are several starters that are relatively cheap. Spoiler (and shameless plug) Alert: Check out the podcast here at Fantasy Hoops Insider to get more in-depth coverage of all our DFS picks for Friday.

Here are my picks for Monday, 2/5/16. Let’s get it on.

 

Guards

 

John Wall, WAS vs. PHI – $17,400

 

Chris Paul, LAC at ORL – $17,000

 

If you can fit both of these guys in your lineup, more power to you. I am going to get some exposure to some of the heavy hitting forwards below, so I can probably only fit in one. Optimus Dime is coming off a silly 41 point, 10 assist game against Golden State while CP3 continues to do what CP3 does. With injuries and other deficiencies surrounding them, both Wall and Paul are shouldering a heavy load of their respective offenses. Statistically speaking, Paull has the better matchup, but I absolutely love the pace potential in D.C.

 

Ish Smith, PHI at WAS – $12,700

 

Oy, this one could go either way. Smith has been nothing short of a miracle worker in Philly, but head coach Brett Brown does who-knows-what to the rotations on a daily basis, stymying fantasy owners across the globe. There is potential here, though. This should be an up and down game and with the highest projected point total on the board, there should be plenty of chances for Smith to drop a ton of Ish.

 

E’Twaun Moore, CHI at DEN – $8,300

 

I wish the news would break already about Jimmy Butler missing Friday night’s game. There is no late swap at FantasyDraft and should Butler get the start, that means your boy’s lineup is shot. Let’s just bank on Butler missing another day or at the very least, not playing up to speed. The Denver backcourt is ranked 27th and 28th against the one and the two, respectively, in fantasy points allowed. The Bulls will need all the scoring they can get Friday night , especially if Pau Gasol also misses due to his sprained wrist.

 

 

Raul Neto, UTA vs. MIL – $6,600

 

You really won’t be able to find any starters at this price. Neto looks to be all patched up and healthy following his concussion. He has played a total of 57 minutes over the last two games and is averaging 21.875 (I like to round to the nearest thousandth) FantasyDraft points over that span. But the most important variable Neto brings to the table is the minutes versus the budget. A Neto roster helps you load up on these next guys.

Forwards/Centers

 

DeMarcus Cousins, SAC at BKN – $20,200

 

Boogie, Boogie, Boogie, can’t you see. Sometimes you’re moves just hypnotize me. Good luck stopping the Boogie train, Brooklyn.

 

LeBron James, CLE vs. BOS – $17,100

 

King James has the highest floor of of any player on the board on Friday. That’s usually the case with LBJ, but there is even more truth to the statement for today. Jae Crowder recently rolled his ankle, further adding to a hobbled leg that was dealing with a shin injury. Crowder should still start in Cleveland, but if he is any kind of gimpy, the King will demolish the Celtics utilizing the now up-tempo Cleveland offense.

 

Kevin Love, CLE vs. BOS – $13,900

 

There’s a feeling brewing that at least one Cavalier forward needs to find themselves in a roster spot throughout the industry. Love is dialed-in right now with the new look Cavs, but his fantasy production has dipped every so slightly in three straight games. Though it makes sense from a matchup perspective to add Love, it doesn’t make sense from a fake financial perspective to roster a guy that is showing a price increase with declining production.

 

Joe Johnson, BKN vs. SAC – $9,600

 

If you can get the idea of giving a roster spot to Joe Johnson out of your head and look at just the numbers, it actually makes some sense. He is coming off a 20 point, four rebound, nine assist outing and will be matched up against a Kings defense that is giving up the most points per game on the season. Given that Brook Lopez routinely pulls a Harry Houdini disappearing act in the second half of games, the Nets will need Johnson’s scoring to keep up with the fast Kings.
