Bankster’s NBA 3-Point Play – March 13, 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 Wednesday, March 13…
From the Corner: Rudy Gobert (UTA – C – $8,400)
From the mouth of Phil Beneteau (@fantasyphilled), “The Phoenix Suns have been surprising a lot of teams lately. They beat the Warriors in Golden State on Sunday and beat the Milwaukee Bucks less than 10 days ago. They are not getting blown out like the spread suggests. The Jazz did take care of business in their first at home winning 116-88, but Gobert still saw over 32 minutes and dropped 12 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 blocks, and 16 points. He will match those stats tonight as he should continue to own rookie Deandre Ayton with his post game.”
From the Wing: Mike Conley (MEM – PG – $7,600)
On a night where people may spend up for the PG position, Conley is sitting in the upper mid-tier and could give you top level production. Over his last eight games, Conley has surpassed 40 fantasy points six times; going over 50 fantasy points in three of those games. Atlanta runs the fastest pace in the league and opposing guards have been dominant against them. The only time these two teams met this year, Conley hit that 40 fantasy point plateau (over 5% higher than his season average). At his price point he’s already sitting at 5x if he gets to those 40 points and we look at that as more of a floor than ceiling tonight. Even if you wanted to spend up at PG, you can pair Conley with Steph Curry very comfortably (or Russell Westbrook slightly more uncomfortably).
From Way Downtown: Bruno Caboclo (MEM – SF – $3,000)
From the mouth of Zac Green (@okiecowpoke14), “Bruno started the last game for Memphis, and if he starts tonight this is a plus matchup against a Hawks team that cannot defend anyone. All we need is for him to make a few threes and, boom, 15 points and 5x value. Using him allows you to pay up for studs like Gobert. He is capable of huge games as he had a 35 fantasy point game against the Mavericks” Don’t look at what he’s done recently as he only just was inserted back into the starting lineup for the Grizzlies. He started on Sunday in a tough matchup against Orlando; as Zac said, tonight’s matchup is far easier.
On the Bench (Fade of the Day): Andre Drummond (DET – C – $9,800)
From the mouth of Phil Beneteau (@fantasyphilled), “I’m a Drummond and Pistons guy, but this is just not a good spot for him. He does not play well against Whiteside and the Heat. He’s been “hot” (see what I did there) recently but I think he gets cooled off tonight on the road in Miami against another slow paced team. He has averaged just 13.7 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 12.3 points in his 3 games against the Heat this season.” There are far too many options on this slate (Gobert, Boogie, Capela, Vucevic) to spend all the way up on Drummond in a matchup against a team that runs a pace as slow as molasses. An average game for Drummond this year has been around 45 fantasy points. Against the Heat that number drops all the way down to 36 points per game, a 20% drop in production. I don’t care how hot he is, you can’t justify spending what Drummond costs when you’ve got these numbers staring you in the face.
