The Phoenix Suns are taking on the Sacramento Kings tonight, and that is a game you'll want to target. Let's take a look at a few players from that game, along with a couple other solid FanDuel NBA plays.

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for DraftKings for 1/2/16. The picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays.

Without wasting anymore time, let's get down to it!

FanDuel DFS Guards

Brandon Knight (at SAC, $6,500)

It looks like it is taking Brandon Knight a little bit of time to get adjusted to playing basketball with Eric Bledsoe by his side, but he will figure it out soon. Tonight may be that night. The Sacramento Kings are terrible against opposing guards, and Knight has huge potential. In his last game, he played 40 plus minutes, and he is playing 40 plus minutes tonight, he could easily score 50 plus fantasy points. This season, Knight has scored 70 plus fantasy points in a single game. His upside is basically limitless, and due to his recent struggles, his price tag is down right now. Take advantage of this special situation.

Devin Booker (at SAC, $3,600)

Devin Booker is playing solid minutes for the Phoenix Suns right now with Eric Bledsoe out of the lineup. In his last game, he played 39 minutes against the Oklahoma City Thunder, posting almost 20 fantasy points. In 39 minutes on the court, 20 fantasy points is fairly unimpressive, but his price tag is so low that it does not matter too much. If he is going to continue to see big minutes, he is going to hit value. It is more likely that Booker sees around 25-30 fantasy points, but he should still be able to hit value in that time, especially against the Sacramento Kings, who do not play much defense against any position.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Thaddeus Young (at BOS, $6,700) 

Thaddeus Young is playing well right now. In his last two games, he had under 30 fantasy points in both, but prior to those two games, he scored over 35 fantasy points in three straight. One of those games consisted of over 40 fantasy points, and in another, he posted over 50 fantasy points. The Boston Celtics are not good defensively, and Young has the opportunity to shine tonight. He is a very effective scorer, and he knows how to rebound as well. If he sees big minutes, which he should, he has great upside. I do not trust him in 50/50 contests, but I will be using him in a few tournament lineups.

TJ Warren (at SAC, $4,600)

TJ Warren absolutely exploded in his last game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He scored 29 points, grabbed 9 rebounds, assisted the ball 3 times, stole the ball 4 times, and posted 52.3 fantasy points. Warren should continue to play a lot of minutes for the Suns, and he should continue to excel tonight against the Sacramento Kings. Do you see a trend here? Pick on the Kings. In only 27 minutes against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Warren posted over 30 fantasy points. He has great upside. There is no reason to avoid him, but he is not consistent enough to use in 50/50 contests yet, especially on a night with a lot of games.


FanDuel DFS Centers

DeAndre Jordan (vs PHI, $7,800) 

DeAndre Jordan is easily the best center option on the board tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers are absolutely terrible on defense. However, Ish Smith is keeping games close for them, so the Clippers may have to play their starters at least three quarters. Jordan just posted 45 fantasy points in 36 minutes against the New Orleans Pelicans, and he should do something similar tonight. His price tag is not too high yet, and he should be able to crush value. Even with the blowout a possibility, use Jordan in any format .
