NBA Cash Breakdown 11/27

This is a bit of a tricky five-game NBA slate tonight. We obviously want to target the Nuggets pretty heavily, but I am assuming that is where most will go. There are so many centers on this slate that also make sense and on FD it is going to be really hard to choose just one.

Core 4

Jamal Murray (DK $6,900) (FD $7,300) 

How can we not like Murray in this spot? The Lakers have played much better defense as of late and that has pushed them to the 10th best defensive rating in the league. They are, however, playing at the fourth fastest pace, and that is a massive bump for the Nuggets, who are in 26th for pace. The Nuggets, as a whole, are also eighth in offensive rating, so this just sets up so well. If Gary Harris were to miss, I think I would play 100 percent Murray across everything. Without knowing that just yet, I still like Murray a bunch. With the combination of matchup plus the minutes he has been playing recently, we just can’t pass on him in cash tonight. 

Cory Joseph (DK $4,600) (FD $4,800) 

With Oladipo missing again tonight, I like the savings we have with Joseph. In the four games without Oladipo this year, Joseph is averaging 27 minutes and he is right at 0.9 DK points per game. That puts him right at cash value with everything neutral. Well, everything is not neutral tonight, as they get a great matchup against the Suns, who sit 28th in the league in defensive rating and really struggle to stop anyone. I know the price is up, but the floor is there tonight for Joseph.

Reggie Jackson (DK $5,400) (FD $5,800) 

Jackson is a great play tonight, and the production has been there recently. He has played 33 and 31 minutes in the past two games and has put up 37.5 and 39 DK points. That is far exceeding cash value here. Now, he gets the Knicks, who are 26th in defensive rating and really struggle against PGs. Jackson has a solid enough 25 percent usage rate on the year and is playing 29 minutes per night. The matchup and price are just really good here. 

Nikola Jokic (DK $8,800) (FD $9,000) 

It is a little scary because of his recent minutes and productions, but I am just going to trust the matchup here. I outlined how good of a spot it is when I spoke about Murray tonight, and I love the spot even more for Jokic. He thrives in uptempo games and this is just a massive bump for him tonight. His price is on the lower end and as long as his minutes normalize back to around 30, he should absolutely smash in this spot. In their first matchup this year, he went for 45 DK points, but that also came in one of his lowest assist totals on the year. I love him, and I will just trust the matchup.
