NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball – Sleepers + Cash Game Picks 2/22

Got a mid-sized slate on the schedule, but it seems like the players you want to target tonight is a bit smaller than typical. I’m not on LeBron or most of the CAVS simply because they played last night.

2/21 Recap: For the second night in a row I took a 0 at the center spot and still cashed 100%. I was at a dinner party, so I’m not even sure if it was a DNP or he got hurt – but 0 points again at the center spot is getting out of hand.

Luckily – I didn’t make the mistake of not playing Anthony Davis in short slate cash games. For some reason, DFS grinders have focused so heavily on the few times Anthony Davis has pu****ed out to the locker room … he was under 25% owned yesterday in all my cash games!!!!! That is just being stupid. If you’ve been reading this blog all year – I’m not just saying this because he had 80+ points yesterday. Instead, I’ve been telling you to play Anthony Davis 100% in short (2-5) game slates because the penalty of not playing him is bigger than the few times he doesn’t deliver. STOP going with the DFS “media” who cries every time AD comes up lame. He’s a great player – and if you want to fade him … make it the 10+ game slates where you can find production elsewhere.

So I deleted & re-installed my injury notification app on my phone, so hopefully I don’t put up another 0 at center. Luckily I’ve been nailing just about every other spot so it hasn’t hurt me too much. Also, as you can see, the star players typically really come through this time of year – as many are trying to trigger contractual bonuses from teams & sponsors. With that being the case, I don’t think you need to get too fancy for most slates.
