FanDuel DFS Guards

RJ Barrett - SG, NY @ GS ($4,100)

There are a lot of shooting guards to pay up for, but you don’t need me to Yoel you that James Harden or Devin Booker is a good play. Especially when you have to take the entire slate into consideration and we have a guy in Giannis that’s in an optimal spot. We’ll instead save at guard and kick it off with RJ Barrett. Barrett played just 18 minutes in the blowout last night, which is a great sign. He’ll be ready to go for a full 30+ and the match-up with Golden State is a perfect one. They give up the second-most open threes and rank 26th against shooting guards. The price on Barrett is down and I like him to get back over 30 fantasy points here.

Darius Garland - PG, CLE vs. HOU ($6,400)

I know it’s unsettling to roster Darius Garland, but the minutes have been consistent and the match-up couldn’t be better. The Rockets play at the league’s second-fastest pace (105.2) and the Cavs are going to see a ton of extra possessions in turn. Garland has been over 30 minutes in four of the last six games and it’s fair to assume we’ll see 30 minutes of him against a smaller Rockets squad. For just $4,100 on FanDuel, Darius Garland is hard value to pass on.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Giannis Antetokounmpo - SF, MIL vs. NO ($12,000)

If I’m paying up anywhere on this slate, it’s with Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Pelicans play at the fifth-fastest pace (104.1) and the Bucks play at the fastest (105.6). This game is going to be incredibly fast and I like the over at 234. Giannis is going to demolish the Pelicans while he’s in the game and 70 fantasy points wouldn’t be surprising if the game somehow stays close. In tournaments, make sure you pair Giannis is a Pelican. They’ll be playing up in pace as well and if this game stays close, there will be a couple of Pelicans that demolish value. Jrue Holiday is my favorite, followed by Ingram, Ball, and Hayes. Middleton is another great play from this game on the Milwaukee side.

Lauri Markkanen - PF, CHI vs. ATL ($6,400)

Markkanen has been playing through an injury to start the season, but he’s looked more like himself in the last week. He’s been over 32 minutes in three straight games and has eclipsed 30 fantasy points twice. He now gets a match-up against a Hawks team that allowed Bam Adebayo to triple-double last night. Markkanen isn’t as versatile as Adebayo, but he can put up 45 fantasy points if he gets hot from the field. The match-up is excellent and it’ll be tough for Markkanen to stay under 30.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Wendell Carter Jr. - C, CHI vs. ATL ($6,900)

Wendell Carter can put up 40 fantasy points with ease tonight and I have a feeling he’ll be overlooked. The Bulls have deemed him healthy and his probable tag will keep even more off him. The Hawks can’t contain Carter and he’s going to double-double if he plays 25 minutes. He’s just too cheap on FanDuel and I don’t see a way he stays under 30 fantasy points here. Don’t be afraid to play both Markkanen and Carter, as they don’t steal from each other. We also saw just last night where there were four Miami Heat players on winning lineups against these Hawks.
