Wednesday night presents a loaded NBA schedule with ten games to work with for daily fantasy action on FanDuel, so make sure you sign up for FanDuel and enhance your viewing pleasure. The Pacers visit the 76ers tonight so let's take a look at how the players stack up as fantasy play options.
The Sixers create an odd fantasy dynamic since you never know what to expect since six of their 11 losses have been by less than 10 points, but there have been big blowouts in other games which could impact minutes for key fantasy players.
Considering the Pacers are grappling with injuries and Philly remains desperate to post a W, I'd expect the Pacers to have their hands full. Frank Vogel may not enjoy that outlook, but it makes for a quality fantasy situation. Albert Lee at Bullets Forever presented an interesting way to find daily fantasy value by calculating salary per fantasy point per game. When favorable matchups don't stick out, this is a great way to work through position options at the various value levels.
A number in the $210-$225 per point range is good value. Monta Ellis has a current salary of $6700 with an average of 26.34 points to put his salary per point at $254 which is not a good value. However, Monta's recent play is why is salary has risen of late. In his last five games, Ellis is averaging 31.32 fantasy points which brings that salary per point number to $213 which is a real nice value.
Paul George is the highest priced small forward available to play tonight at $9200 with a $223 salary per point value. PG could be a great play if indeed the game is close throughout and Vogel isn't able to rest his star down the stretch.
On the Philly side, point guard T.J. McConnell has been surging with nearly seven assists per game. His $5100 FanDuel salary and 23.78 point average gives him a $214 salary per point. Rookie center Jahlil Okafor has been pretty consistent delivering numbers in the 30 point range, so his $6700 salary and $212 salary per point number make him a solid option.
