DFS Guards to Consider

Victor Oladipo - PG/SG, at MIN (DK - $7,200, FD - $7,600)

Oladipo has been enjoying a seemingly breakout campaign for the Pacers. Through three games, he is averaging 22.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 2.7 steals per game. He has been locked into big minutes, and it is clear that he is a focal point of the offense. He gets a tough matchup against the Wolves, but Oladipo's price tag does not match his upside tonight.

Ricky Rubio - PG, at LAC (DK - $6,400, FD - $7,500)

Rubio has been somewhat of a disappointment this season, but he has looked decent overall. He is locked into big minutes, and he is averaging 14.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 8.3 assists, and 1.7 steals per game. He is still developing chemistry with his new team, and his assists total should continue to rise as the season progresses. He is cheap enough tonight to be considered in all leagues.

Terrence Ross - SG/SF, vs BKN (DK - $4,400, FD - $5,200)

Ross has played well in two games this season before struggling in his third game. He is a great option tonight for one reason - pace. This game should be the fastest paced of the night, and Ross is a solid scorer when he catches fire. Brooklyn does not possess the best defense in the NBA, and Ross is a fairly safe option that also comes with quite a bit of upside.

 

DFS Forwards to Consider

Anthony Davis - PF/C, at POR (DK - $10,900, FD - $12,200)

Davis has looked unbelievable through the Pelicans first three games. In those games, he is averaging 31.7 points, 17.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.7 blocks, and 1.7 steals per game. He is a player that can contribute in each of the five categories, and he gets a great matchup against the Blazers. Davis makes an elite option in all leagues while he is healthy.

Blake Griffin - PF/C, vs UTA (DK - $9,000, FD - $10,200)

Griffin has looked fantastic in his new role this season. He is the focal point of the offense, averaging 29.0 points, 10.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.5 steals per game. He has only played somewhat limited minutes so far in two easy wins. He will get a tougher matchup tonight, but he makes a great option in all leagues, regardless of the matchup.

Al-Farouq Aminu - SF/PF, vs NO (DK - $4,800, FD - $5,300)

Aminu isn't a flashy player, but he has found success this season. He is averaging 8.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.0 block per game this season. He gets a good matchup against the Pelicans in what should be a fast paced game. Aminu can be used in all leagues as a salary relief option tonight.

 

DFS Centers to Consider

DeMarcus Cousins - PF/C, at POR (DK - $10,500, FD - $11,400)

Davis has been an elite option in New Orleans, but Cousins has also found plenty of success early this season. In three games, Cousins is averaging 28.3 points, 11.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 3.0 blocks, and 1.3 steals per game. Davis and Cousins have finally found a way to play together. He also gets a great matchup against the Blazers, and Cousins can be used in all leagues.

Enes Kanter - PF/C, at BOS (DK - $5,300, FD - $5,600)

Kanter has earned his minutes in New York, but they still do not want to let him play more than 25 in a game. He has found quite a bit of success in his limited time, though, averaging 13.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 1.5 steals in 22.6 minutes per game this season. He gets a decent matchup against the Celtics, and Kanter is a good tournament option tonight.
