Daily Fantasy Rundown – February 1st, 2015

Welcome to Sunday’s edition of the Daily Fantasy Rundown with “leonem” and “dinkpiece”.  Each day throughout the NBA season our daily NBA scouting reports will highlight the best top, value and cheap plays of the day based on the Daily Fantasy Industry’s pricing for salary cap games.  Our analysis will help you consistently build winning rosters over the long run.

Short Slate Disclaimer:

Nights when the schedule typically ranges from two to four games we refer to as a short slate and that will result in heavy overlap around the industry. The more overlap there is, the smaller the margin for error and the more variance that is introduced into the results. We understand that the appeal of Daily Fantasy is the ability to start fresh each day, but we recommend either avoiding most short slates altogether or playing a significantly reduced portion of your bankroll.

Rebounding rate rank: Miami 26th, Boston 19th

Turnover ratio (from least to most): Miami 25th, Boston 12th

Top Play:

Chris Bosh (MIA) – Bosh remains a top play without Dwyane Wade. This season with Wade off the court, Bosh has seen a 30 percent usage rate compared to 27.3 percent with Wade on the court. Now that Hassan Whiteside is the starting center for the Heat, Bosh has switched to his more natural position (power forward) and that’s affected his rebounding rate in a negative way. Regardless, Bosh becomes the focal point of the Heat offense when Wade is out and an average game on FanDuel gets him around his value threshold (averaging 34 FanDuel points this season, needs around 37 FanDuel points to meet value). Focus on the positives and continue to rely on Bosh in both cash games and tournaments this afternoon.
