Don’t let a day with just three games of basketball stop you from competing in Daily Fantasy NBA contests on Moneyball – there’s still $8,000 to be won in the Friday Swish! The doors are wide open for other Warriors to step up now that Kevin Durant is injured – read on to find out who will benefit the most in today’s NBA DFS tips!
Stephen Curry – $9,900
Stephen Curry has a dream matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers and will massively benefit from Kevin Durant missing from the team, as well. Curry has been averaging 40 points over his last ten games but will definitely look to push past a 50+ fantasy score as he looks to increase his shot attempts.
Kemba Walker – $9,000
Kemba Walker has been on fire lately and is currently averaging 40 fantasy points per game over his last five games. Walker’s matchup against Phoenix is also a favourable one for point guards and he’ll be one of the better elite options on Friday.
Klay Thompson – $7,100
Klay Thompson will be another huge benefactor of Kevin Durant missing from the team in Friday’s game against Chicago. Durant has been scoring 25 points per game, and this scoring output has to be immediately picked up by members of the Golden State Warriors and who better than the scoring shooting guard in Klay Thompson.
Jimmy Butler – $9,000
Jimmy Butler has been in incredible fantasy form lately, averaging 40+ fantasy points in his last five games. His matchup against the Warriors puts him up against some veteran defenders, but Butler’s ability to carry the team and create his shot will test the old souls of the Warriors.
Moe Harkless – $4,500
Moe Harkless’s minutes have increased upwards to close to the 25 minutes per game mark, and his fantasy production has lifted in line with his added minutes. He’s now averaging 26.8 over his last five games, which is already a crazy return from a player at just $4,500.
Frank Kaminsky – $6,400
Who knew Frank Kaminsky would suddenly turn into a weapon of a fantasy option? He’s now putting up 35+ fantasy points per game in his last five most recent games. Kaminsky and the Hornets are scheduled for a close contest with the Suns on Friday and Kaminsky will be in line for another solid fantasy performance.
Marquese Chriss – $4,400
Marquese Chris stands out as a nice low-end selection at power forward on Friday as his minutes are continually increasing as his defence is now shining. His favourable matchup against the Hornets means that Chriss is likely to return excellent value for owners. His direct opponent, Marvin Williams, is more of a perimeter player, opening up rebound opportunities for Chriss.
Enes Kanter – $5,800
Enes Kanter has a great matchup against the Trail Blazers tomorrow and is always a stand-out selection at center because of his versatility. His last game was 29.3 fantasy points against the Utah Jazz who are renowned for being a defensively stingy team.
Jusuf Nurkic – $4,500
Jusuf Nurkic is crazy underpriced right now as he has moved to the Portland Trail Blazers and proved to be an excellent fantasy selection. He has managed scores of 40.9 and 32.9 in two of his past four games as his minutes have fluctuated between the mid-thirties and low twenties.
