NBA Opening Day: Moneyball Picks

Posted {{post.formattedDate}} by Darryl Woodford

As we detailed in our Founders Update earlier today, the full NBA service at Fantasy Insider is on track for a 2 November launch, in order to allow our models to 'acclimatise' to the season, and the personnel / style changes over the offseason. That said, we know there's a fair bit of interest in today's (and tomorrow's) $20,000 tournaments, so we wanted to leave you with our thoughts on some of the best lineup options available. I'm not a big fan of stacking when it comes to the NBA, so here are some of our top players (3 best, and 2 value) per position:

Wednesday $20k -- Moneyball


  • Rudy Gobert - Utah
  • Paul Gasol - Sacramento
  • Jaokim Noah - Knicks
  • Tristan Thompson - Cleveland (Value)
  • Mason Plumlee - Portland (Value)

Power Forward:

  • Derrick Favors - Utah
  • Kristaps Porzingis - New York
  • LaMarcus Aldridge - Sacramento
  • Trey Lyles - Utah (Value)
  • Kevin Love - Cleveland (Value)

Point Guard:

  • Stephen Curry - GSW
  • Kyle Irving - Cleveland
  • Damian Lillard - Portland
  • Patty Mills - Sacramento (Value)
  • Derrick Rose - Cleveland (Value)

Small Forward:

  • Lebron James - Cleveland
  • Kevin Durant - GSW
  • Carmelo Anthony - New York
  • Kyle Anderson - Sacramento (Value)
  • Andre Igoudala - GSW (Value)

Shooting Guard:

  • CJ McCollum - Portland
  • Rodney Hood - Utah
  • Klay Thompson - GSW
  • Manu Ginobili - Sacramento (Value)
  • Courtney Lee - New York (Value)
