NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball – Sleepers + Cash Game Picks 11/9

Back to the NBA grind today with a normal tip-off time. I got roughed up in some cash games yesterday with my first 100% losing day! That’s okay, I’m going to make sure it doesn’t happen 2 days in a row with a better lineup today in my cash games. In my tournaments – I’m going to take a few more risks in some hoping to hit a big score tonight.

Here is the Target Score I’m shooting for Monday November 9, 2015 NBA daily fantasy. Last night I just came up short and missed cashing, so it’s really important you build lineups that can consistently reach and beat target scores.

Fanduel: 300

11/8 Recap: Overall it was a poor night for me. I set some lineups on Fanduel in hopes of getting in a nice tournament, but on Sunday most of the action is in cash games. I thought my tournament lineup would be good enough for cash since there weren’t that many games being played (plus I was being lazy). However, I made the mistake of just entering contests for the sake of action. Luckily Antonio Brown caught a bunch of balls yesterday so my NFL action should have me still at a profitable Sunday, but I’m looking forward to getting back to the NBA grind today:

Yesterday’s Results
0-10 (Fanduel Cash)
0-9 (Yahoo Cash)

As you can see my lineup is more built for tournaments. George passed the eye tests for me – the metrics won’t say to play him, but he looks like the old PG to me. He would have been perfect for tournaments yesterday …. low owned superstars are key. Lillard, Bledsoe, KP, Randle and Hill all performed as expected or above. Brandon Knight was a big let down, Tyson Chandler was noticeably frustrated with Knight’s play last night, and I’m going to monitor that going forward. There’s a reason why Knight has bounced around the NBA. Winslow is a good tournament pick, but not suitable for cash games – as if I had put someone more steady in that spot I may have swept my cashes … instead as you can see I came up just a few spots from the money in all the games I played last night.
