NBA Opening Day: Moneyball Picks

Posted Tue 25 October 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)

If you’re interested in our full NBA service ($39.95 monthly), you can find details and join the waiting list on our NBA package page.

Good luck!
