In our first Sunday of the year without real football, the association features nine games to help soften the blow. We have some injuries to monitor that will help open up the door for some excellent value plays so be sure to keep an eye on things as the day progresses.

In this article, I'll be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 1/27/19. 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.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Lou Williams - SG, vs. SAC ($6,600)

Behind Boban Marjanovic, Williams benefits the most from the absence of Danilo Gallinari, gaining a 1.3 percent increase in usage. He put up a triple-double, the first of his career, against the Bulls on Friday night despite arriving late to the arena due to a Chicago snowstorm, finishing up the night with 31 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists and was also locked in from the charity stripe, sinking 11 of his 13 attempts.

Buddy Hield - SG, @ LAC ($6,100)

Hield was locked in against the Grizzlies a few nights ago, going 9-for-18 from the field, including draining six of his nine attempts from downtown. Though he is averaging only 10.5 points against the Clippers throughout two meetings this season, Hield's price is too good to pass up, considering he was priced significantly higher not too long ago.

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Kenneth Faried - PF, vs. ORL ($6,400)

Faried has been a welcome addition to a team that is sorely missing Clint Capela and Chris Paul in addition to lacking depth all-around. Over the past two games, the veteran is averaging 40.95 fantasy points through 31.5 minutes and should have another standout performance if Paul isn't available on Sunday against the Magic.

Noah Vonleh - PF, vs. MIA ($6,100)

With Emmanuel Mudiay out of the lineup for the foreseeable future, Vonleh will get an extra bump in production for a team that doesn't have much going for them. The 23-year-old finished Friday's matchup against the Nets with 22 points, 13 boards, two blocks and shot 50 percent from the field. Look for him to hit his value at the very least against the Heat.

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Vucevic - C, @HOU ($10,100)

Though the Rockets are enjoying the arrival of Kenneth Faried, they still lack size underneath the basket with both Faried and P.J. Tucker playing at the four and five as of late. There is a reason why Vucevic is priced north of the $10,000 mark, and it is not out of the question for him to hit at least 50 fantasy points against a vulnerable Rockets' interior D.
