Bankster’s NBA 3-Point Play – March 19, 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 Tuesday, March 19…
From the Corner: Kemba Walker (CHA – PG – $8600)
From the mouth of Phil Beneteau (@fantasyphilled), “the 76ers rank 7th in pace this season, which should already mean extra possessions for the Hornets who rank 21st in pace. Walker disappointed last game against the Heat, and the 76ers do rank out well against guards, which could scare people away. Let them be afraid. Here at Bankster we love HuLo plays and I think that Walker can easily go over 50 tonight against the 76ers considering he has averaged over 65 fantasy points in his three games against them this season.”
From the Wing: Marvin Bagley (SAC – PF – $5700)
From the mouth of Zac Green(@okiecowpoke14),”I am laughing at the prices on the Nets-Kings game. I know his minutes have been limited coming back from an injury but I could see an increase from 20 to 25 or 30 here. That would put him in range to hit value at this price.” Bagley is averaging 1.3 fantasy points per minute over his last three games, so even in limited minutes he’s been productive. Get him up to Zac’s 25-30 minute level and we are looking at a 30+ fantasy games. And let’s not forget, we always play bigs against the Nets.
From Way Downtown: Pat Connaughton (MIL – SG – $3000)
From the mouth of Doug Shain (@bankster17), “Malcolm Brogdon is out for a long while and it would make some sense to think that Connaughton would inherit a lot of that work. He’s played no less than 24 minutes in each of his last four games, and that was with Brogdon hanging around. In those four games, Connaughton has averaged about 22 fantasy points per game and you’d have to think that would improve given his increased importance without Brogdon. A matchup against the Lakers would lead us to believe that Milwaukee will be taking it easy on their starts, so Connaughton could see upwards of 30 minutes if we hit some garbage time in the fourth quarters. I don’t see how he doesn’t hit value at his low price point.”
On the Bench (Fade of the Day): Clint Capela (HOU – C – $7600)
There is literally nothing “wrong” with Clint Capela but he’s the very definition of a player who really has no ceiling to shoot for. Over his last nine games he’s surpassed 40 fantasy points only twice and even then it wasn’t much past 40 points. Capela is well priced, and he probably won’t kill your team, but he’s not a guy who is a GPP-winning type of player. I was talking to Phil Beneteau (@fantasyphilled) about my desire to fade Capela and reasoned that since Capela only scored 24 fantasy points against ATL the last time they played he was a good guy to pass on today. Phil surmised that Capela was injured a lot this year and must have been on a minutes limit. This made a ton of sense to me, but in reality Capela played 34 minutes in that game; the exact same number of minutes he averages per game this year. So maybe no top of lacking an upside, perhaps this just isn’t a great matchup for Capela either.
