Welcome to the FC Insights Core Plays and Cheat Sheet Article for FantasyDraft.
In this post, we will be breaking down our top options and plays for FantasyDraft for each night of the 2019-2020 NBA DFS season.
The Fultz redemption tour is officially off and running as he is playing great. In his past eight games, the former number one pick is averaging 14.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 1.4 steals. Fultz has at least 22 fantasy points in each of those games and is averaging 27.5 fantasy points a game during this stretch. One of the games during this stretch was against tonight’s opponent the Wizards. In that game, Fultz had 19 points, three rebounds, and two assists on his way to 26.75 fantasy points. With the Wizards having the worst defensive net rating in the NBA there is every reason to believe that Fultz has a similar type of performance in this one.
I am going to target the Wizards one more time as not only do they not defend well they don’t rebound the ball well with the second-worst team rebounding rate in the NBA while also allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to centers. Those struggles make Birch one of the top values on this slate as Birch is playing fantastic basketball. In his past two games, Birch is averaging 5.5 points, 11 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals, two blocks, and 27.75 fantasy points.
Ingram is on a roll right now. In his past ten games, he is averaging 26.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 1.9 steals+blocks. Ingram has at least 39 fantasy points in each of those ten games and is averaging 1.25 fantasy points per game during this stretch. Ingram should continue his hot play tonight as the Pelicans take on the Mavs. The Mavs are allowing the most fantasy points per game to small forwards this season and rank in the bottom ten in defensive efficiency to the position as well. Ingram has also already played well against them once this season with 25 points and eight rebounds for 46 fantasy points in their first meeting in what was both teams second games of the season.
