October 28th seems like it was years ago at this point. That was the first day of the NBA season. For those of you who might have forgotten, the Magic lost in New Orleans by 17 that night. The Spurs edged out the Mavs at home by just a point. And Houston stuck it to the Lakers in LA by 18. Anthony Davis had 22 points and 17 rebounds with a whopping 9 blocks en route to a 74.25 fantasy point game (which led all players). Nikola Vucevic, also in that game, had 23 rebounds with 15 points and 54.75 fantasy points. I guarantee you don’t remember that Omer Asik had 46.75 DK points that night either, or that Devin Harris had 29 fantasy points for the Mavs.

Top Value of 2014-15 Season

On December 8th, 2014 Kelly Olynyk posted a 48.75 fantasy point game against the Washington Wizards. He was just $3K on DraftKings, giving him a whopping $61.35 dollar per point ratio. He achieved 16.25X value (fantasy points divided by [salary/1000]). Hopefully the state of New Hampshire, where he was the most popular play this year, had plenty of Olynyk that night!
