The Daily Fantasy Pulse- 3-20


Yesterday’s Studs

Chris Paul- Paul lit up the Kings for 11 points, 5 rebounds and a mind blowing 15 assists. Paul was very expensive on most sites last night, but justified his high cost.

Wes Matthews- Wes had an amazing night against the Bucks, going for 28 points, 2 boards and 3 assists. Perhaps this is a nice indicator of future performance.

Yesterday’s Values

Tyler Hansborough- For two nights in a row, Pyscho T was easily the MVP of daily NBA fantasy. Last night, Hansborough contributed a 14-14 to many winning lineups.

Mike Dunleavy- Playing in place of the injured Ersan Ilyasova, Dunleavy met value through 9 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists.

Today’s Plays

Point Guards

1. Steph Curry- Golden State’s bigs aren’t going to be able to get any traction against Timmy D and company, meaning Curry gets to shoot.

2. Brandon Jennings- If Monta Ellis’ wrist injury is of any concern, that means more shots for Brandon Jennings.

3. Kyle Lowry- Energetic and aggressive players do well against the Bobcats. Just a fact of life.

Value Play: Mario Chalmers in a certain blowout against the worst point guard defense in the league.

Shooting Guards

Wes Johnson is a nice value play for daily NBA fantasy tonight.

1. James Harden- Harden will tear up the likes of Randy Foye, Gordon Hayward and Mo Williams on the perimeter in a game that has real playoff implications.

2. J.R Smith- Plug and play if Melo doesn’t go.

3. Kawhi Leonard- No one on Golden State is qualified to try and guard Leonard.

Value Play: Wes Johnson is a solid play whenever he gets the minutes and he played over 30 the last time out.

Small Forward

1. Kevin Durant- I believe that he will outperform James, simply based on the fact that James isn’t going to play the 4th quarter.

2. Tobias Harris- Look for the young and athletic Harris to decimate the Knicks old and slow front court.

3. Jeff Green- That’s right, I’m going back to the well. There is a chance that Green’s performance is the signifier of a new arrival. I’ll be rolling him out in several lineups.

Value Play: Micheal Kidd-Gilchrist has a solid matchup against a bad defensive 3, in Rudy Gay.

Power Forward

1. Al Jefferson- In relation to cost, Jefferson is a very appealing play against a smaller Houston front line.

2. Tim Duncan- Tim Duncan. David Lee. This one was over before it started.

3. Amir Johnson- Heavy minutes against the worst front court defense in the entire league? Okay, if you insist.

Value Play: Reggie Evans has become my value player that I consistently rely on when salaries just aren’t matching up correctly.


1. Al Horford- Against Milwaukee, Horford’s basketball IQ is going to take over and produce fantasy points.

2. Marc Gasol- I love them, but the trio of Nick Collison, Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka just can’t guard Marc Gasol properly.

3. Emeka Okafor- If you spend elsewhere, Okafor is the center for you.

Value Play: That being said, Kendrick Perkins will get more minutes than usual against a team with a massive front line.
