FanDuel DFS Guards

Ricky Rubio - PG, UTA vs MIA (FD - $6,500)

Rubio is up against the Heat, who are giving up 47 FanDuel points per game to point guards this season, putting him in a great spot tonight for any format. He has posted 31 FanDuel points or more in three of his last five games and comes in producing 1.00 fantasy points per minute this season. This game only has an over-under set at 209 points, which isn't too high so his upside will be limited but should be able to reach value with his 24.3% usage rate.

Luka Doncic - SG, DAL vs ATL (FD - $7,200)

You should fully buy into the Doncic versus Young narrative this season and for years to come, so why not have a bit of fun in DFS? Doncic has played the Hawks one time this season where he played 34 minutes and posted 37 fantasy points. He comes in with a very solid 1.10 fantasy point per minute this season, along with having over 20 real points in two of his last four games. He makes more of a GPP option tonight, but we should be in for a good one with an over-under set at 223.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Nemanja Bjelica - SF, SAC vs MIN (FD - $4,500)

Bjelica makes a nice value play tonight and comes in with a very favorable matchup you should be looking to attack. He has 18 or more FanDuel points in four of his last five games, which may not seem like a lot, but we are dealing with a player who is under $5K. Tonight, he is up against the Timberwolves who are 29th DvP against small forwards this season. Love the savings on him combined with the fact we have an over-under set at 228 points.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - PF, BKN @ PHI (FD - $5,700)

RHJ is looking good as of late with 21 or more FanDuel points in four of his last games and in a spot to reach that level of production tonight. He is up against the 76ers who are 26th in defensive efficiency versus power forwards this season. He makes a solid cash game option tonight, but nothing to get overly excited about with his 0.89 fantasy points per minute this season.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Karl-Anthony Towns - C, MIN @ SAC (FD - $9,700)

Towns is one of the high-priced centers on the slate and brings along massive GPP upside with his 1.34 fantasy points per minute. That production comes from the fact he is an absolute double-double machine, posting seven in his last eight games. The consistency is there, the upside is there and the matchup will be there for him tonight since he is facing off against the Kings, who are 23rd DvP against centers this season.
