FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (1/25/19): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice

We're at the point in the season where teams are dealing with a plethora of injuries on a near nightly basis. Luckily, we have a 10 game slate after only four games last night, which means there will be plenty of options to choose from. There are a lot of reasonably priced options on this slate, but there are also quite a bit questionable tags that we need to keep up with on this slate.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 1/25/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. You can also check out today's DraftKings lineup picks.

Make sure you don't set your lineups too early and also be sure to check player statuses and availability prior to opening tip. Find me in the NBA Chat Room or @BalesSJustin on Twitter.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Patrick Beverley - PG, at CHI ($4,800)

Beverley has been locked into big minutes recently, as he's averaging 37.0 minutes per game over his last three games. Over that span, he's averaging 12.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 2.0 steals (35.1 fantasy points) per game. He struggled a bit in his last game, scoring only 17.2 fantasy points, but he had scored 34.3 and 53.9 fantasy points in his two games prior to that. Beverley gets a great matchup against the Chicago Bulls, who have struggled defensively this season. He's cheap enough to be considered in all leagues on this slate tonight.

James Harden - SG, vs TOR ($14,000)

This could be the last time we get Harden on the floor with Chris Paul. Paul is technically questionable tonight, but he's expected to sit out and return in Houston's next game. Harden has been far and away the best fantasy option in the NBA this season, and he's averaging 52.2 points, 9.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.0 block, and 2.6 steals in 38.3 minutes per game over the last 10 days. Excluding the 51.7 fantasy point performance in three quarters against the Philadelphia 76ers, Harden has scored 70+ fantasy points in six consecutive games, including games of 95, 81, and 81 fantasy points. He isn't going to come cheap, but he can be considered in all leagues.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Will Barton - SF, vs PHO ($5,100)

Barton has only played in seven games this season because of an injury, but he has looked outstanding in limited minutes. Overall, he's averaging 12.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.0 assists (23.2 fantasy points) in 22.3 minutes per game. He played 29 minutes in his last game, scoring 22 points with nine rebounds, five assists, one block, and one steal (43.3 fantasy points). He gets an elite matchup against the Phoenix Suns, and Barton is a high upside option, who is only going to see his price tag rise from this point on.

Pascal Siakam - PF, at HOU ($6,200)

Siakam is an extremely consistent option for the Toronto Raptors. Over the last 10 days, he's averaging 13.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 3.8 assists in 33.1 minutes per game. He has scored 28+ fantasy points in seven of his last eight games, including a 59.8 fantasy point performance against the Washington Wizards. Siakam gets a great matchup against the Houston Rockets, who will be without their best rebounder in this game. He makes an outstanding cash game option for his current price tag.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Enes Kanter - C, at BKN ($6,200)

Here we go again with Kanter. He was announced as the starting center for an injured Luke Kornet in the New York Knicks last game before picking up a DNP - coach's decision. He has since voiced his displeasure, and there is word that he only did not play because of the Houston Rockets small-ball lineup. He's expected minutes in the mid-20s against a more traditional Brooklyn team, who has struggled against centers this season. Through 42 games this season, Kanter is averaging 14.4 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 26.2 minutes per game. He should have no issues hitting value if he finds the minutes, but he should strictly be used in GPPs because of his unknown role in the Knicks rotation.
