Fantasy Firebox: NBA DFS fixtures and MLB futures

Fernando Tatis Jr. of the San Diego Padres pointing upward and celebrating a home run after crossing home plate. Umpire is in the background dusting off the plate.

Who has been a fixture in your NBA DFS lineups? What players have the best ownership percentages so far this year? Are these players always low-tier values?

Tony (@TCutillo23) and Dan (@dmgteach) get into everything tonight on the show as we continue to sprinkle in the betting aspect as well. We are also joined by Mark Drumheller (@x_drumheller) from Betting for Breakfast and Fox Sports The Gambler to touch on some totals, futures, and spreads to keep an eye on.

Also on this episode:

  • The discovery of the tier match-ups
  • Al Horford: is he trustworthy?
  • Jokic vs. Embiid in DFS and props. Does Jokic get the nod every time?
  • Low ownership players, not necessarily low-tier players. Examples:
    • Ben Simmons: 8,400 — 75pts — 8.4% ownership
    • Clint Capella: 7,400 — 45 pts — 7.7% ownership
    • H. Whiteside: 4,300 — 58 pts — 3.0% ownership
    • J. Randle: 8,700 — 65 pts — 9% ownership
  • NBA last-minute injury killers
  • Anthony Davis HUGE injury news. Who benefits most? Odds to go back-to-back?
  • MLB closers: Are they still viable for DFS? Who is top in the game? From a betting perspective, what teams stand out as we inch towards the season?
  • Francisco Lindor to the Mets/Yu Darvish to the Padres: betting and fantasy impacts
