FanDuel DFS Guards

Damian Lillard - PG, POR @ MIL (FD - $9,400)

How about a little Dame Time? Lillard is always one of the top options when it comes to point guards and tonight should be no different. He comes in with 43 fantasy points or more in three of his last four games, along with taking seven or more three-pointers in eight of his last 10 games. The scoring upside on him is massive, which makes him a great tournament option since if he is able to score 30 or more real points, he could be looking at 50 plus fantasy points. He comes in with a usage rate sitting at 32.4% while averaging 1.30 fantasy points per minute.

Danny Green - SG, TOR @ ATL (FD - $4,800)

Green could be in line to see some extra minutes tonight since the Raptors are on the second night of a back to back and OG Anunoby was out last night along with CJ Miles. We also know that the Raptors like to sit Kawhi Leonard on the second night of a back to back, which is tonight. This is clearly a very fluid situation with all of the player news we need, but with Green being so cheap and up against the Hawks, who are allowing 45 FanDuel points to shooting guards this season, he is in a great spot to capitalize.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Jabari Parker - SF, CHI vs PHO (FD - $6,200)

Parker comes in with a usage rate sitting at 25.4%, which is third highest on the team along with averaging 0.90 fantasy points per minute this season. He is playing 27 minutes or more in each of his last 10 games and has turned that into double-digit real points in nine of those games. A super strong matchup for him tonight as he is up against the Phoenix Suns who are giving up 44 FanDuel points per game to small forwards, which is second worst in the league. This game has an over-under set at 212, which is modest but we should be in for some good scoring with how bad the defense is on each side.

Paul Millsap - PF, DEN @ MIN (FD - $5,900)

Millsap might be a veteran, but he still has some gas left in the tank and at his affordable price, you should be looking to have some exposure tonight. He is up against the Timberwolves, who are bottom five in the league against power forwards, giving up 49 FanDuel points per game. Despite not playing over 30 minutes in most games, he is averaging 1.07 fantasy points per minute, which is strong for a player at his price point.


FanDuel DFS Centers

DeAndre Jordan - C, DAL vs BKN (FD - $7,500)

Jordan is in a spot to absolutely feast tonight, as he is going up against the Nets, who have never been able to guard centers and this season is no different. The Nets are giving up a whopping 65 FanDuel points per game to centers, which is dead last in the league. We want to be attacking them in this spot nearly every night, especially with Jordan has posted four double-doubles in his last 10 games, while having double-digit rebounds in every one of those 10 games. This game may not be the highest paced-game, but he seems a bit too cheap for this matchup.

Jonas Valanciunas - C, TOR @ ATL (FD - $5,300)

Valanciunas is on the cheaper side of centers tonight and can offer a bit of value on this larger slate. He has posted at or over one fantasy point per minute in nine of his last 10 games. We don’t have an over-under set in this game yet since we are waiting on injury news from the Toronto side of things. He will be up against the Atlanta Hawks, who are giving up 57 FanDuel points per game to centers this season.
