FanDuel DFS Guards

Terry Rozier - PG, vs DAL ($6,100)

Rozier has found plenty of success in limited minutes this season, but he'll draw another start for an injury Kyrie Irving once again tonight. He played 32 minutes in his last start for Irving, scoring 16 points with three rebounds, five assists, one block, and five steals (43.1 fantasy points). He is no longer a must play at this price tag, but Rozier comes with tremendous upside, and gets a plus matchup against the Dallas Mavericks. He can be considered in all leagues.

Devin Booker - SG, vs LAC ($8,800)

Booker has been playing at a high level recently, averaging 28.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 8.0 assists, and 1.4 steals per game over the last 10 days. Since returning from injury, Booker is averaging a healthy 47.6 fantasy points per game (10 games), while scoring 50+ fantasy points in four of those games. He gets a good matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers, who love pushing the pace. This game should feature plenty of scoring, and those are the type of games that Booker tends to thrive in. He isn't going to come cheap, but he is still a bit underpriced.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

DeMarre Carroll - SF, at MEM ($5,500)

Carroll has taken on a new role for the Brooklyn Nets, playing 29+ minutes in each of his last three games. Over that span, he's averaging 17.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.0 assists (30.4 fantasy points) per game. He gets a tough matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies, but Carroll is expected to be locked into similar minutes once again tonight. He's still too cheap for his recent production, although he may be best suited for tournaments in this matchup.

Ed Davis - PF, at MEM ($4,400)

Davis has seen inconsistent minutes this season, but he has been producing at an extremely high level. Through 38 games, he's averaging 11.3 points, 16.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.1 steals on a per-36 minute basis. Davis isn't likely to play more than minutes in the mid-20s, but it shows his upside. He has scored 25+ fantasy points in three of his last four games, and he's still cheap enough to potentially be used as the drop score on this slate. He should strictly be used in tournaments against the Memphis Grizzlies, though.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Dewayne Dedmon - C, at MIL ($5,500)

Dedmon has been dealing with an ankle injury, but he's still averaging 14.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.3 steals (34.5 fantasy points) over the last 10 days. He has been playing at a high level for quite some time, though, scoring 30+ fantasy points in six of his last 12 games. He gets a tough matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks, but Dedmon is entirely too cheap for his recent production. He's expected to play minutes in the high-20s, and he's an outstanding option in tournaments tonight.
