For Daily Fantasy Basketball Managers surveying every tool at their disposal from analyzers to projection charts hoping to isolate a player that will be instrumental in helping win that Head to Head, League or Tournament, we are always looking to isolate such a producer.
In the ruggedness of playoff basketball, those key points are especially hard to come by. Last week we fixed our eyes upon a young up and coming point guard on the Milwaukee Bucks named Malcolm Brogdon. This week we will turn our attention to a veteran who is positioned to put up big numbers for the Houston Rockets against their arch nemesis, the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Semifinals.
Currently, the Brazilian baller has taken a name of infamy after he shoved Spurs front court anchor Dewayne Dedmon in Game One. After being fined $15,000 and being ejected for a flagrant foul, Hilario was good to go in Game Two. That passion can be an instrumental role in helping Houston overcome the Spurs in a deadlocked series that is now a best of five, with three of the remaining five games going through Clutch City.

However, Nene went off to seal the deal for the Rockets against another rival, Oklahoma City in Game Five. At just $4,900 on FanDuel, Nene went off in a performance that catalyzed takers with an 8.7 points per $1,000 leveraged in what may have been one the playoff’s most prolific sleeper performances.
In total, the outing would net Nene 42.5 FDP but since then he has come back down to earth, combining for just 27.7 FDP in two games since then.
Buying low and selling high is what daily fantasy sports is all about. While Nene’s salary is on the decrease again, now he may be worth a look yet again as he has three more home games to replicate his last masterpiece in Clutch City.
