Washington Wizards versus Chicago Bulls NBA Daily Fantasy League Preview 1-11-2016


The Chicago Bulls are going to host the Washington Wizards from the NBA. Pro basketball fantasy GM’s can tune to NBA League Pass Channel at 8PM Eastern Time on Monday January 11th to follow the results of their one day league roster picks.


It has not been a good start to the season for the Washington Wizards. The team is 16-19 overall and just broke a three game losing streak as they beat Orlando on the road on Saturday. Their struggles have come on the defensive end of the court. Washington is 29th and second to last in the NBA in field goal and three point defense. They are allowing 46.6% shooting and 38.3% from the three point line on the year.


The Chicago Bulls have moved to an up-tempo team from previous seasons. The Bulls used to sit near the bottom of the league in most offensive numbers the past seasons. Not this season as Chicago is 10th in scoring at 102.2 points per game and sit 5th from the three point line by connecting on 36.5% from beyond the arc. Still with a faster pace the Bulls are still defending well by allowing 41.9% shooting from the floor good for best in the league.


Here are the NBA Fantasy Picks


Point guard Jimmy Butler has taken over as the leader of the Chicago Bulls. He is posting 22.1 points per game with five boards and four assists per contest. He is coming off a 27 point performance with eight boards in 39 minutes on Saturday at Atlanta. He has played 39 minutes in each of his past four games.


Play on Jimmy Butler

Miami Heat versus Golden St Warriors NBA Real Money Fantasy League Preview 1-11-2016


The Golden St Warriors will welcome into town the Miami Heat. Fantasy NBA draft managers can catch the action on NBA League Pass Channel at 10:30PM Eastern Time on Monday January 11th to check the scoring results of their real money roster selections.


Miami still has a strong defensive presence on the court ranking second in the league in points against by allowing 94.8 per contest. They will have their hands full trying to keep Golden St on their home court below their season averages offensively. You are looking at Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade trying to defend the guard tandem of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. The Heat does have advantages in the low post behind Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside but a jump shooting team like Golden St when they miss will create long rebounding opportunities. Whiteside and Bosh better be careful about putting the ball on the floor in traffic because the Warriors defenders will create steals.


The Warriors are 35-2 overall and 17-0 on their home court. They are tops in the league in scoring and three point shooting as well as second shooting from the floor at 48.8%. On defense Golden St sits second in the league in field goal (42.5%) and three point shooting defense (31.9%)


Here are the NBA Pro Basketball Real Money Fantasy League Picks


Stephen Curry will be a handful for the Miami Heat guards. The good point guards reside in the west and you find very few approaching his quality in the Eastern conference. Curry is averaging nearly 30 points per game and is shooting 51% from the floor with 44.8% from the three point line.


Play Stephen Curry


Golden St Warriors PG


With Curry spreading the court and creating space it will open up three point shooting opportunities for Klay Thompson. He is second on the team in scoring and shoots 43.5% from beyond the arc.


Play Klay Thompson
