Tuesday, October 29 - Fantasy Draft Daily Plays

There are only three games on the NBA slate tonight after a big 11-game slate last night. The Hawks and Nuggets are respectively on the second night of a back-to-backs, but I'm not letting that scare me away from starting their players.

Here is an early look at some of my favorite potential plays on Fantasy Draft tonight.

Premium Plays

PF / C Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers ($18,100)

Davis is the highest-priced player on the Fantasy Draft slate tonight. The Brow left the Lakers' previous game early with a shoulder injury, but the reports say he is all good to play. Davis is averaging 25 points and 10 rebounds per game with his new team, although I'd like to see him get more minutes.

C Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets ($17,800)

Nuggets' star center Nikola Jokic may not be the highest-priced player on the Fantasy Draft slate, but he is my top play of the night. I know Jokic is on the second night of a back-to-back after a terrible game last night, but I love him tonight in a tough spot. The Joker will get his mojo back tonight despite Dallas guarding against the center position well on the young season.

SF LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers ($17,700)

It's never a bad idea to roster James in NBA DFS. This season James will look to facilitate more, James should flirt with a triple-double tonight versus the defensively challenged Grizzlies. Don't be discouraged by the news of about the Getty fire forcing his family to evacuate their home.

Value Plays

PF / C Jaren Jackson Jr., Memphis Grizzlies ($12,300)

The Grizzlies second-year big man has exceeded his fantasy value in every game this season. He has a tough matchup tonight versus the Lakers bigs but as long as he stays clear of foul trouble his usage rate will make him a fantasy asset again tonight.

PF Brandon Clarke, Memphis Grizzlies ($10,000)

First-year player Brandon Clarke does not have a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers; however, the rookie does have the ability to stuff the stat sheet at a decent price. 

SG Gary Harris, Denver Nuggets ($9,300)

Harris, who is healthy this season, is averaging over 30 minutes per game. His shooting percentage is over 40% and he is hitting 45% of the attempted 3s thus far. He is priced in a very playable range tonight.
