Bankster’s NBA 3-Point Play – March 10, 2019
Fanball’s NBA 3 Point Play
Powered 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 Sunday, March 10…
From the Corner: John Collins (ATL – PF – $6900)
From the mouth of Derrick Mcgough (@mcgoughderrick), “He is not going to be tired for this game and should have a plush matchup if Dedmon is out once again. Jhalil Okafor is a game time decision, and Julius Randle is a poor defender. Collins played only 29 minutes last night and put up 33-20.” You’ve got to love the efficiency with which Collins produced last night. He’s still priced far below what he’s worth at only $6900, and a 6-7xx return is not an unreasonable expectation given the fast-paced nature of this game.
From the Wing: Eric Bledsoe (MIL – PG – $6000)
From the mouth of Zac Green (@okiecowpoke14), “The Spurs defense versus guards this season is equivalent to a trailer house versus a tornado. Eric Bledsoe comes in at a relative cheap price due to playing with Giannis. He went off for 20-4-10 against them earlier this year. His ownership could be down because of the b2b and the Spurs play amazing at home which should keep the game close enough for him to hit value.” The best part about Bledsoe is that he’s right in that mid-range of prices where you can use him with 2-3 studs and a bunch of value plays; a Stars, Scrubs, and 1 mid-range strategy. He’s priced below Dennis Smith Jr and Jeff Teague, two guys we would definitely play Bledsoe over even if he was more expensive than them.
From Way Downtown: Frank Jackson (NO – PG – $3900)
From the mouth of Phil Beneteau (@fantasyphilled), “What’s not to like? He should see another start with Jrue Holiday out and now faces a Hawks team that we saw the Nets guards exploit. His price has come up a bit but he is still reasonable.” Even with Elfird Payton in the lineup, the Pels like to run with two guys who play more like PG rather than a PG and true SG. The Hawks run with the fastest pace in the league, and we’ve seen that New Orleans can still score despite the injuries and whatever weirdness we want to call the Anthony Davis situation. Jackson has four games of 20+ fantasy points in his last seven outings and at his price point and potential upside in this matchup he should be in line for a 6x type of return.
On the Bench (Fade of the Day): Klay Thompson (GSW – SG – $7000)
Does Klay Thompson have the ability to break a slate with a potential 50 point game? Yes, he totally does and that’s why he’s often so popular in a GPP given his price. Do you want to know a dirty little secret? You’re better off fading Klay every day and just riding out those random big games rather than taking his mediocre performances when he doesn’t feature heavily in the offense. He’s totally scoring dependent and I don’t see that he’ll be relied on heavily against a Suns team that the Warriors should blow out. For what it’s worth, Klay averages 6 minutes less per game against the Suns this year than his season average and he scores about 3.5 less real points per game against them (22.3 vs the rest of the league and 18.7 against Phoenix). To get proper value from Thompson I want 38+ fantasy points, and that’s a number he’s exceeded only three times in his last eight games. I’m not willing to take a 26 fantasy point effort from him while chasing the 60 fantasy point game that probably isn’t coming.
