Daily NBA Fantasy Basketball Sleeper Picks – November 5

A decent mix of games on the schedule today. I have been having success with the ‘stars & scrubs’ strategy recently and hope you guys are winning some money too. One interesting note is that Chris Bosh’s wife had a baby last night, and he wasn’t on the team plane to Toronto – so that’s something you can take advantage of, considering Bosh is a big part of what Miami does.

$500 NBA Freeroll

Mario Chalmers – at Toronto 7:00 pm
Not really super cheap, but he’s not expensive either. He’s going to get you farily consistent production with upside if he can get his assist numbers up. If Bosh doesn’t play, Miami could go more uptempo which would favor Mario too.

SG/SF – Gerald Green – at New Orleans 8:00 pm
I will be double checking closer to gametime, but this should be the NBA sleeper lock of the day considering Goran Dragic appears to be out for several games (at least) and Green filled in beautifully for him during the last game. On this site, Green is only $3,000 (50K cap) and he’s only $5,993 (100k cap) – which provides 30 fantasy-point upside at that price … which is rare to find in the NBA.

SG/SF – Xavier Henry – at Dallas 8:30 pm
Had a solid game as the Lakers starter (over Nick Young) and you’ll probably want to double check to see if he’s starting again (we think he will start again) He’s only $3,000 on this site – which is basically as cheap as it gets.

PF/C – Miles Plumlee – at New Orleans 8:00 pm
Had a bad game last time out, and could repeat that performance, but on Draft Kings he’s still only $3,000 (other sites have him higher) and that’s pretty cheap for a guy that’s done well this year & is still the starter.

PF/C – Josh McRoberts – at NY Knicks 7:30 pm
Going off the board a bit here, but it appears the Al Jefferson is out again and McRoberts is someone who has upside and always seems to do something during the game to get on the stat sheet. Only $3,500 on this site.


If you are new to daily NBA fantasy, make sure you check the scoring settings before  you play for big money. Some sites have minus points for miss shots, and some don’t. Most of the time my picks are for leagues that have no penalty for missed shots.
