FanDuel DFS Guards

De'Aaron Fox - PG, SAC vs. NO ($7,300)

The Pelicans are always one of the best match-ups for a point guard and De’Aaron Fox loves to run. The Pelicans will give Fox every opportunity in the world to get out in space and he’s been getting the big minutes of late. He exploded last time out against the Grizzlies with 65 fantasy points in just 29 minutes. This match-up is a very similar one. Fox is still affordable on FanDuel and I love him in all formats.

Damion Lee - SG, GS vs. DET ($5,800)

Damion Lee finally had an off-game last time out and I hope it keeps the crowd off of him. His price came down $200 on FanDuel and Lee is going to play a huge role with D'Angelo Russell out of the lineup. The Warriors don't have anyone to take the shots and Lee has proven an ability to score 20 and add close to 10 boards. The match-up with Detroit is as good as it gets for a rebounding guard.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Giannis Antetokounmpo - SF, MIL vs. SA ($12,000)

I like Giannis in any slate I think he will be under-owned. The masses will look at the price and move off of him here. Giannis is match-up proof and the Spurs have no answer for him anyway. It’s fair to expect another 55+ fantasy points out of Giannis and he can put up 70 in a game that stays close. He’s expensive, but there is plenty of value on the slate to make it work and still be happy with your lineup.

Christian Wood - PF, DET @ GS ($4,100)

Blake Griffin has already been announced out for this game and it’s going to be Christian Wood that steps in as the best value play on the slate. He’s locked into 25 minutes and could easily exceed 30. The match-up with Golden State couldn’t be better and I could really see Wood having a huge performance here. I’m a fan in all formats.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Jokic - C, DEN @ WAS ($8,900)

Jokic has been bad in three straight games, but this sure seems like the perfect bounce back spot. The Wizards are one of the worst teams in basketball defensively and Jokic should use this spot as a get right. The offense solely runs through Nikola Jokic and I think it’s a good bet that they use this game to get their big man going.
