NBA Daily Plays for Friday, February 26th. We are testing out a new format for our daily plays article. The hope is that it will give readers the same information and also allow us to bring you the daily plays more often. If there are any stats or categories you would like to see added please let us know. We are going to highlight important stats and trends that we have available in our tools section and highlight some of our favorite plays based on those stats. Make sure you check out our NBA projections page to help in your DFS research. We also have an NBA Injury News page which monitors all injury news and offers pivot plays to consider if the injured player ends up sitting.
Chris Paul (FD $9,800, DK $9,600) –
Paul will be playing in a paced up game with the highest over/under of the slate. The defense of Rajon Rondo is also always one that can be targeted. I think most DFS players will gravitate towards Wall, Kemba and Irving leaving Chris Paul lesser owned then he should be. This is a situation to take advantage of especially in GPPs.
Evan Fournier (FD $5,500, DK $6,000)-
Fournier has seen one of the biggest increases in minutes since the All Star Break. His fellow back court teammate Elfrid Payton has seen one of the biggest decreases since the All Star Break. It appears like Fournier is now the preferred option over Payton. His salary has increased slightly on DraftKings but actually decreased on FanDuel. On FanDuel he should be highly owned with not a lot of other great options at the Shooting Guard position.
Al Horford (FD $7,800, DK $7,100) –
We have a lot of solid center options on the slate tonight. This is definitely one of the nights you want to target a Center in your utility position on DraftKings. Horford should be the perfect target for GPPs tonight. Most will pay up for Deandre Jordan or Vucevic or look for a cheaper option outside of this price tier. Horford should be low owned on DraftKings and even lower owned on FanDuel.
