FanDuel DFS Guards

Derrick White - PG, SA @ DAL (FD - $6,100)

White has played 31 minutes or more in four of his last five games and as we all know, minutes equal money so we want to be targeting players with a ton of time on the court. He comes in with 25 FanDuel points or more in four of those same five games, which clearly shows he is under one fantasy point per minute. That certainly isn't great but we know that he will be giving up offensive usage to DeRozan and Aldridge, which should temper your expectations. The matchup tonight is what makes him a great play, as he is facing off against the Mavericks who are giving up 48 FanDuel points per game to point guards, which is sixth worst in the league.

Terrence Ross - SG, ORL @ DET (FD - $5,300)

Ross makes a nice mid-range play tonight, who offers a ton in terms of point per dollar value. He comes in with one fantasy point per minute or more in three of his last four games, which is truly surprising for a player at his salary. The Magic are facing off against the Pistons in a game with a modest over-under set at 205 points, but the spread is only three points, so we should have a close game here, which is good for fantasy.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Gerald Green - SF, HOU vs BKN (FD - $4,700)

Green isn't going to be liting up the scoreboard with 50 points anytime soon, but he is playing over 25 minutes in nearly every game, which should be on the rise. The Rockets failed to agree to a deal with their other small forward Danuel House, which means he is going to the D-League. This should lock in some extra minutes for Green tonight, in a game where the Rockets are only favored by four points at home versus the Nets.

Anthony Davis - PF, NO @ GS (FD - $13,700)

Davis at his super-high price tag tonight of 13.7K isn't the most expensive player since that lies with Harden, but Davis looks to be the better option. First off, Davis is playing in a game where the over-under is set at 240 points, compared to Harden and the Rockets in a game at 221 points. So simply for the overall point expectation, Davis gets the nod. He comes in with 69 FanDuel points or more in three of his last four games, along with posting a double-double in 14 straight games.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Al Horford - C, BOS vs TOR (FD - $6,400)

Horford has seen his minutes fluctuate a bit as of late, with a low of 18 but a high of 30, which will hopefully even out tonight in a very important matchup. The Celtics are slipping a bit right now, so they will need their best lineup out there against a very good Toronto team. Horford is still producing 1.07 fantasy points per minute this season and will be facing off against this Raptors frontcourt who are allowing 53 FanDuel points per game to centers this season.
