FanDuel DFS Guards

Kyrie Irving - PG, vs ATL ($8,700)

Irving has featured plenty of ups and downs this season, but he always comes with tremendous upside. He's coming off of a big 51.1 fantasy point performance against the Washington Wizards, and it will be interesting to see who plays tonight for Boston. If some of their starters are ruled out again, Irving will see an uptick in usage against arguably the worst defensive point guard in the NBA. The Atlanta Hawks will also look to push the pace, giving Irving more opportunities to score fantasy points.

Bogdon Bogdanovic - SG, vs GS ($6,300)

Bogdanovic has struggled to truly flash a ceiling, but he has been extremely consistent for the Kings. Over the last 10 days, he's averaging 15.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 1.2 steals in 27.3 minutes per game. He has scored 33+ fantasy points in five of his last seven games, including each of the five games he played 30+ minutes. He's expected to play 30+ minutes in a high scoring game against the Golden State Warriors tonight, making Bogdanovic an extremely safe option for his current price tag.

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Bojan Bogdanovic - SF, at PHI ($4,800)

This Bogandovic is not related to the player above, but he still makes a solid fantasy option. Over the last 10 days, he's averaging 19.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 32.1 minutes per game. He gets a solid matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers, and Bogdanovic should be locked into 30+ minutes once again tonight. His price tag is still surprisingly low for his upside and general floor, making him a great option on this slate.

Al-Farouq Aminu - PF, vs TOR ($5,100)

Aminu is another inconsistent player, but he has been playing well recently. Over his last five games, he's averaging 10.8 points, 9.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.0 steal in 33.1 minutes per game. He has scored 29+ fantasy points in five of his last seven games, as well. Aminu gets a decent matchup against the Toronto Raptors, who will be looking to push the pace in the style of play that Aminu loves. He certainly comes with some risk, but he also makes a great option for his price.

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Jarrett Allen - C, vs WAS ($5,900)

Allen's role in the Brooklyn rotation has been fluctuating a bit this season, but he has looked great while on the court. Through 27 games, he's averaging 12.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.4 blocks in 27.5 minutes per game. He gets an elite matchup against the Washington Wizards, who have struggled against big men this season. If Allen gets the minutes, he could be in line for a double double tonight, and he's averaging 32.2 fantasy points per game over his last five double doubles.
