Bankster’s NBA 3-Point Play – April 6, 2019

by • April 6, 2019

Fanball NBA 3 Point Play

By Bankster DFS

Did you know that on even a six game NBA slate, there are approximately 250 BILLION lineup combinations you can make? To be able to hit on the 1 lineup out of those combinations is harder than winning the lottery. A reduced player pool, though, can give you a significant advantage by reducing the possible lineup combinations you can make. If we limit our choices to only 5 players per position, you now have 400,000 possible lineup combinations you can make (pricing helps reduce this number even lower). Sure, that’s still a lot of lineup choices but it’s only .00016% of the total possible lineup combinations everyone else is working with. That is a SIGNIFICANT advantage for you if you’re choosing from a strong reduced player pool. That’s where we come in to help.

    Bankster DFS, The Home of the Reduced Player Pool, has teamed up with Fanball to give you a daily sneak peak of three of the plays we have included in our Bankster DFS reduced player pool. We aren’t lineup sellers; we write full articles that explain which players we like, why we like those players, and how we like to build our teams. We are a learning site more than anything, and you can see that in heavy member interaction on our various Slack Chat channels (we have one for every sport that we cover – NBA, AAF, NFL, NHL, MLB, EPL, PGA, MMA, CBB, WWE, sports betting, and Best Ball 10’s). You can get the rest of our reduced player pool, our daily articles, our members only slack chat, and Fanball exclusives with a Bankster DFS membership. That membership costs only $2.99/wk and you get everything mentioned above with it; 10% of all membership fees are donated to Donors Choose (a site that funds projects for teachers and their classrooms). You can contact me about membership on Twitter @bankster17 or sign up for service here.

Let’s look at the 3 point plays for Saturday, April 6…

From the Corner: Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL/PF – $12,600)
   
From the mouth of Derrick Mcgough (@mcgoughderrick), “he can give us 60-70 in three quarters if that’s all he plays, however I feel this game could be closer than we think. As bad as the Nets are they have been playing hard. Granted, teams are tanking and playing 10 day contract players…but still. The Bucks want to win and play hard heading into the postseason. Giannis put up a 45-13-6-5 stat line in his last game. That 5 you see is 5 blocks against Embiid. He is the best spend up on the slate. He is a must play in my opinion.”

From the Wing: Ben Simmons (PHI/PG – $9,900)
   
From the mouth of Derrick Mcgough (@mcgoughderrick), “I like him a lot more if Embiid sits. He is the clear cut top fantasy option on the Sixers when Embiid is not in the lineup. He can very easily give us 50-60 fantasy points even if the game blows out against the Bulls. His fantasy production has been hit and miss over the last 5, but I expect a huge bounce back tonight.”

From Way Downtown: George Hill (MIL/PG – $3,300)
   
From the mouth of Derrick Mcgough (@mcgoughderrick), “he has come back to form of late. He is getting plenty of run and a newfound sense of youth. He played 32 minutes with a stat line of 20-5-5 his last game. I see no reason why he doesn’t wrap this game up against a Nets team that is not going to defend the guard position that well.”

On the Bench (Fade of the Day): Everyone
    I say this facetiously, but it’s very important that you take special care when making your lineups this late in the year. There’s a ton of value to be had, and knowledge is power. People who blindly put in studs that who end up seeing limited minutes are that much further behind the curve than those of us who make sure to hang around at lock to see who is actually going to get minutes. So no, we don’t think you fade everyone and not play; quite the opposite. There’s a huge edge to be gained by paying attention and knowing that much more than your opponents. Spoiler: we will be running this “fade” the rest of the year since we really don’t know this far before lock who will and won’t play; it would be irresponsible to pretend otherwise.
Don’t forget that you can access the rest of our Reduced Player Pool as a Bankster DFS member. $2.99 per week gets you access to all the content we produce for all the sports we cover, our members only Slack Chat, and exclusive Fanball bonuses. Contact me @bankster17 or you can sign up for a membership here. Thank you for checking our our Fanball NBA 3 Point Play. You can find us here every day throughout the NBA season (MLB coming soon).
