FanDuel DFS Guards

De'Aaron Fox - PG, at GS ($7,900)

Fox has been one of my favorite GPP plays all season and there is no change for tonight. Fox has proven to be a big-minute player nearly every game and should see at least 33 minutes in what is expected to be a high-paced matchup against Golden State. Fox has shown that he has 65 Fanduel point upside and at $7,900, that is a score that can help win some big tournaments. In nearly all scenarios that Fox plays normal minutes tonight, he should reach at least 40 Fanduel points- putting him at 5x value with 7-8x value upside.

Bradley Beal - SG, vs NOP ($8,000)

SG tonight features Harden at the top and then numerous mid-range options- although Harden is always an excellent play if he fits into your lineup, dropping down to the mid-range may provide an interesting lineup construction. Beal hasn't been amazing this season but has been relatively consistent- tonight's matchup against the Pelicans has the highest Vegas Implied Total of the night and should allow Beal to be highly involved in the offense. Beal has yet to get to 50 Fanduel points this season but if tonight's game stays close, he will have an excellent chance to get there. In addition, Beal should remain relatively low-owned in tournaments as Holiday, LaVine, and DeRozen are all available at just $600-$700 more expensive than Beal.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Paul Millsap - PF, at OKC ($6,300)

Millsap, although a riskier boom-bust type player, has proven to be extremely effective at times this season. Three times this season, Millsap has totaled 45+ Fanduel points in 30 or less minutes. Millsap only has four games this season with at least 30 minutes which eliminates him from cash game lineups but due to his effectiveness, does make him an option in tournaments. Millsap has proven that he can score but has also shown that he can litter the stat sheet with rebounds, assist, and blocks.

Kevin Durant - SF, vs SAC ($10,800)

With Steph Curry still out, Durant will continue to see high usage rates. Increased usage rates for Durant is a recipe for outstanding fantasy performances, as seen last night. Durant is the perfect star to combine with De'Aaron Fox to create a mini game-stack. If this game stays close, both players have incredibly high ceilings. Durant logged 37 minutes last night in a game that was never really close- Durant could see nearly 40 minutes tonight if the Kings keep it within striking distance. Durant has 70+ Fanduel point upside and has a reasonably high floor making him playable in cash games and tournaments.

FanDuel DFS Centers

Clint Capela - C, at CLE ($8,600)

Capela's price has been on the increase but the way he's playing, it really doesn't matter. Simply put, Capela has been elite over the last week- he has had two 55 point games and a 65 point game. The only concern with Capela is that this is the second leg of a road back-to-back for the Rockets and there is a chance that this game blows out- the Rockets have been playing better and the Cavaliers have been terrible this season. If this game gets even slightly out of hand, there is a good chance that Capela sees some reduced minutes. Regardless, Capela has to be used if you're playing multiple lineups and is still an excellent option in single-entry formats just based off of his extremely high ceiling if he sees full minutes.
