FanDuel DFS Guards

Darren Collison - PG, IND vs ATL (FD - $4,500)

Love the price on Collison tonight and his matchup, which should make him a solid salary saver tonight. He comes in with 22 FanDuel points or more in three of his last seven games, which is really average but has a chance to exceed that tonight since he is up against the Hawks, who are giving up 50 FanDuel points per game to point guards. He is producing 0.85 fantasy points per minute this season, which decent and should be able to reach that in a game where the over-under is set at 217 points.

Buddy Hield - SG, SAC @ LAC (FD - $6,700)

Hield and the Kings are up against the Clippers in a game where the over-under is set at 236 points, which should be a fantastic spot for fantasy goodness. He has played 32 minutes or more in five of his last six games, which has equaled 32 FanDuel points or more in five of those six games. Hield comes in with a 27% usage rate, which is highest on the team and producing 1.05 fantasy points per minute, which is tied for fourth highest on the team.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Kyle Anderson - SF, MEM vs CLE (FD - $5,700)

Anderson is never an exciting player to drop in your roster since he doesn't truly have a ceiling game, but he also never truly lays a dud. He has 19 FanDuel points or more in four straight games, with three of those games being in double-digit real points. The matchup is solid for him going up against the Cavaliers who are giving up 40 FanDuel points per game to small forwards this season.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - PF, BKN vs CHA (FD - $5,400)

RHJ has produced at or over one fantasy point per minute in five of his last eight games, which is surprisingly strong for a player who is under $6K. Love this game for a bit of a game stack, since we have an over-under sitting at 220 points, with the Nets only being favored by one point. This should set up for plenty of fantasy value with the Hornets being 21st DvP against power forwards this season.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Andre Drummond - C, DET vs WAS (FD - $9,700)

Drummond might be one of the best high-end players tonight and you should be looking to spend up on him tonight. He is the sixth most expensive player on FanDuel tonight but comes in with what might be the best matchup on the slate, as he is up against the Wizards who are 27th DvP against centers this season. Drummond is a double-double machine and is known for having these 20-20 games, which is fully in the cards tonight versus this weak defensive team.
