DFS Guards to Consider

Damian Lillard - PG, POR vs ORL (DK - $8,900, FD - $9,500)

Lillard is one of the more consistent point guards in the league, and also comes with the upside you would want for GPPs. He has 36 or more fantasy points in seven of his last eight games, and is looking like one of locks tonight. Lillard is up against the Magic, who are giving up 47 fantasy points per game, which is eighth worst in the league. This game has an over-under of 210 points, with Portland favored by five points. This means we should see a close, high scoring game, which is great for DFS.

Kris Dunn - SG, CHI @ OKC (DK - $4,900, FD - $6,100)

Dunn is in place to get the start tonight, but he has been priced up a bit, so take note of that. He is averaging about one fantasy point per minute, especially over his last four games, and now that we know he will have increased minutes, you want to look to him for some value. His price is much better over on DK, so lean with him over there. He is up against the Thunder, who are one of the better defensive teams in the league, but he is starting to fill the stat sheet, so he can hit value by doing more than just scoring.

 

DFS Forwards to Consider

Robert Covington - SF, PHI @ LAL (DK - $6,300, FD - $6,800)

Covington had a season high of 54 fantasy points the other night, and while I don't expect him to that every night, he can still provide plenty of fantasy goodness. The 76ers are an interesting team, since they have some rising young stars, but they need the ball. Covington might be the third or fourth option on offense, but due to that, he sees some open looks from deep, and can fill the stat sheet with the peripheral stats. Solid cash game play, in a match up that has an over-under of 219 points.

Skal Labissiere - PF, SAC @ ATL (DK - 3,800, FD - $3,700)

Labissiere is a young player for the Kings, who is starting to see a good amount of minutes. He isn't always in the starting lineup, so if he is, absolute lock and load spot for him tonight. He is up against the Hawks, who are giving up 50 fantasy points per game to power forwards, which is seventh worst in the league. He has a 22% usage rate, and the value he brings is massive on a big slate, where you want to try and jam in a few of the top stars.

 

DFS Centers to Consider

Marc Gasol - C, MEM vs IND (DK - $7,500, FD - $7,500)

Gasol has one of the best match ups on the slate tonight, since he is up against the Pacers, who are giving up 59 fantasy points per game to centers, which is third worst in the league. He isn't that expensive, and has a big ceiling tonight given the match up. He has a 27.5% usage rate, which is highest on the team, and has scored 33 or more fantasy points in nine of his last 11 games. As consistent as they come, and has a very favorable and weak opponent tonight.

Also consider: Joel Embiid C, PHI @ LAL (DK - $8,600, FD - $9,700)
