Bankster’s NBA 3-Point Play – March 25, 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 Monday, March 25…
From the Corner: Damian Lillard (POR – PG)
From the mouth of Phil Beneteau (@fantasyphilled), “Lillard has scored at least 50 FanBall points in every game since the injury to McCollum. He will now face a Nets team that allows a lot of points to guards. He makes sense as a one off play or even as a stacking option with Jusuf Nurkic against this Nets team that pushes the tempo and can be beat inside off the pick and roll.” You’d think that we have some personal interest in Lillard with how often we’ve recommended him in the 3 Point Play, but the guy is yet to fail us and we aren’t messing around on a four game slate.
From the Wing: Jonas Valanciunas (MEM – C)
From the mouth of Zac Green (@okiecowpoke14), “JoVal has been going nuts lately. Over his last three games he’s gone 33-15, 23-20, 20-14. While that last game seems worse than the other two, we have to remember that it happened in only 26 minutes. This will be a closer game and those minutes will get back over 30.” Valanciunas has been over 36 fantasy points in eight of his last ten games, so even when he wasn’t going as nuts as he has been the last three game he still was killing it in relation to his price point.
From Way Downtown: Jae Crowder (UTA – SF)
Crowder isn’t perfect, but he’s been at 24+ fantasy points in seven of his last ten games. While that’s not a huge number compared to a Harden or Westbrook, we have to remember that Crowder is one of the more underappreciated players in fantasy. He’s generally sitting under $4k so that 24 fantasy point floor represents a ridiculous 6x value. There’s something to be said for a safe play that will get your 23-28 minutes and a point per minute played. On a four game slate, a guy like Crowder gives you the cap relief you need to load up three or more studs.
On the Bench (Fade of the Day): Tobias Harris (PHI – PF)
If Joel Embiid doesn’t play then you can totally ignore this pick as Harris will see a huge increase in usage. As of this writing it’s expected that Embiid will play and that means Harris isn’t going to be as important down low for Philly. That means less rebounds, less blocks, and less of a need to be a pivotal part of the 76ers scoring. Harris has 37 or less fantasy points in seven of his last ten games. As much as we like his skill set, we don’t love the role that Harris is now playing; one that makes him a fade for fantasy.
