Daily Fantasy Basketball (March 1st): DraftStreet Advice

In 2013, FantasyPros invited experts to compete in a daily fantasy football competition in which they tracked the accuracy of the experts.

Of the 59 experts tracked, our three experts within that group all finished in the top third: Sean Beazley (eighth), Dan Yanotchko (16th) and yours truly (17th).

Hopefully you have noticed that I have begun posting daily value plays in FanDuel NBA daily leagues (and you can see my post for tonight's games here).

Going forward, Sean will be provided some thoughts about DraftStreet leagues and here are some of his thoughts for tonight's games on DraftStreet:
Value Play of the Night: Reggie Evans - F - Sacramento - $5,325

Evans' teammate Derrick Williams was the sleeper stud of the night coming in with 41 FP. DeMarcus Cousins is back tonight, which means Williams will go to the bench. In limited minutes, Evans is more valuable than Williams due to his beast rebounding ability. Evans only needs around 15 FP to hit value tonight. I think Evans could be in line for a nice 20-25 point night.

Injury Watch: Will Bynum - G - Detroit - $9,272

Starting PG Brandon Jennings is questionable for the game tonight with a toe injury. If Jennings is able to go, I might back Bynum out of a few GPP's, but I still think he has great value in a game that should be very high scoring. This is the highest total of the night at 217.

Rebound of the Night: Chandler Parsons - F - Houston - $13,248

As mentioned above, this game should be very high scoring. The Rockets are in the bottom quarter of the teams in the NBA vs. small forwards. Parsons has been miserable the last two games combining for a total of 32 FP. I think Parsons has upside of 40 tonight against the Pistons, especially if the Pistons go big with Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith all on the court.

Stud of the Night: John Wall - G -Washington - $19,412

Wall comes at a pretty hefty price tag tonight, but out of all the players 19K and up, he is my favorite. Wall will be licking his chops tonight against the 76ers, who rank dead last against PGs this year. Wall could be in line for a career night. I'm expecting 50 FP from Wall tonight.
Put Sean's advice to use in a DraftStreet league.
