FanDuel DFS Guards

Kris Dunn - PG, CHI vs ATL (FD - $7,400)

Dunn is facing off against the Hawks who are giving up 52 FanDuel points per game to point guards this season, which is dead last in the league, making this an ideal spot to target. He comes in with a 22.2% usage rate, along with producing 1.00 fantasy points per minute this season. We have an over-under set at 221 points, with the Bulls only favored by two points. This means we are in for a solid fantasy game since it's high-scoring and a close spread.

Treveon Graham - SG, BKN vs ORL (FD - $3,800)

Graham has played 26 minutes or more in five straight games, which is truly surprising for a player under $4K. He has posted varying amounts of points in that time, but the minutes are truly what we should be looking at. He is facing off against the Magic, who are 16th in defensive efficiency against shooting guards this season, making this a solid matchup. Worst case scenario, he is the player who is dropped from your team with FanDuels new scoring format this season.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Kevin Knox - SF, NY vs HOU (FD - $5,500)

Knox comes in with a 22.5% usage rate this season along with posting 0.79 fantasy points per minute this season, which should make him a viable cash game option tonight. He is facing off against the Rockets in a game where the over-under is set at 227 points, which is one of the highest games on the slate. The Rockets are 15th in defensive efficiency against small forwards this season, so a nice middle of the road matchup for the rookie who is playing over 26 minutes in nearly every game as of late.

Jayson Tatum - PF, BOS vs CLE (FD - $6,500)

Tatum has played 31 minutes or more in four of his last five games and is now up against the Cavaliers who are third worst in the league versus power forwards. This is an absolutely fantastic matchup for him and he should be a strong cash game option tonight. He isn't super expensive and is now facing off against one of the weakest teams in the league. Boston is favored by 16 points, so there is clear blowout potential here which can limit his upside.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Vucevic - C, ORL @ BKN (FD - $9,900)

Vucevic is known for his double-doubles, which he has posted six times in his last nine games and is a near lock for tonight. The Nets are 25th DvP against centers this season and posted 48 FanDuel points against them just last week. With a full slate of games, he should be one of the players you want to take a stand on, since he has a 40 point floor, with a 60 point ceiling.
