FanDuel DFS Guards

James Harden - SG, HOU @ PHO ($11,100)

With plenty of value to play with on the slate, James Harden is worth a play in all formats. The Suns play fast and they’ll be willing to match the Rockets pace. We’re currently looking at the Rockets -5.5 with a 232 over/under. Line-wise, it doesn’t get any better for James Harden. He’s a lock for me in all formats and I surely prefer him over Giannis tonight.

De'Aaron Fox - PG, SAC @ MEM ($6,500)

Fox has played two games since returning from injury and he’s been over 30 fantasy points in each. The Kings play at a much faster pace with Fox at the helm and the match-up with Memphis is a great one. The 220+ over/under is telling and Fox is going to get close to 30 minutes here, if not over. He’s fully healthy and I love pairing him with Marvin Bagley. Both are simply too cheap on FanDuel.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Paul George - SF, LAC @ SA ($9,000)

I love the price on George here and the match-up with San Antonio is middle of the road. They play a lot faster with Dejounte Murray back in the mix, so we will see their pace standing slowly rise. Paul George fills the stat sheet and we know he's going to shoot 20 times. There is more than enough value on this slate and you can certainly fit in a few stars.

Marvin Bagley - PF, SAC @ MEM ($4,700)

Bagley is the lock of the day. He's gotten up to 27 minutes since returning from injury and reached 32 fantasy points last game. He now gets a great match-up with a Memphis Grizzlies team that gives up the fourth most FP's to opposing power forwards. He's somehow under $5k on Fanduel and I see no way he misses the value in this match-up.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Joel Embiid - C, PHI vs. WAS ($10,000)

We're always going to pick on the Wizards and Joel Embiid should abuse them in the paint. The seven-footer has been over 57 fantasy points in three of the last four games and this is the best match-up yet. His price on FanDuel is affordable and you're needing 55 for him to hit value. The 26% usage is huge and the Sixers are going to feed Embiid against this watered-down Wizards interior.
