FanDuel DFS Guards

Andrew Wiggins - SG, MIN vs. NO ($7,800)

Wiggins has been phenomenal since returning from injury, putting up 38+ fantasy points in three of four games. He now draws a match-up with a Pelicans team that’s exhausted from last night and already plays at one of the fastest paces in the entire league. Wiggins is going to shoot the ball 15-20 times here and will run into plenty of peripherals in this fast-paced affair. He’s way too cheap on FanDuel at $7,800 as his ceiling is in the 50’s. You can plug Wiggins into both your cash games and tournaments.

Jalen Brunson - PG, DAL vs. BOS ($6,000)

With Doncic remaining out, Jalen Brunson is going to slide and play 32+ minutes once again. He’s been over 30 fantasy points in two straight games and now draws a good match-up with the Celtics. Brunson does it all then on the floor, which makes his floor a lot higher than a typical value play. Brunson is a solid play in all formats.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Kevin Love - PF, CLE vs. CHA ($7,100)

Love is a very good play tonight and I don’t suspect many will be on him. The Charlotte Hornets are not only one of the weakest defenses in the nation, but they give up more rebounds to PF’s than anyone. Love is playing to get on a contender and you can be sure he will be out there for 30 minutes here. Don’t worry about the box score as the last two games were subpar match-ups. I’ll have Love in all formats tonight.

Kent Bazemore - SF, POR vs. GS ($4,900)

Kent Bazemore has averaged 33 minutes over the last four games and he has a concrete role with Hood out. The Warriors play at a fast pace and give up more threes than any other team. Bazemore isn’t afraid to shoot the ball and he gets his minutes even if the game blows out. His price is still too cheap on FanDuel and you can lock him into all formats.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Vucevic - C, ORL @ DEN ($7,900)

Vucevic is still priced down from when he was injured, but is looking back to normal at this point. He got up to 33 minutes last time out, but the match-up with Utah was terrible. He now draws the Nuggets, and will match-up with Nikola Jokic. The price on Vucevic is far too low under $8k, especially knowing that they will run the offense through him. Jokic isn't a great defender and down low is the one spot to take advantage of the Nuggets. Vucevic won't be popular and I like him in all formats.
