FanDuel DFS Guards

Damian Lillard - PG, POR vs. LAL ($9,400)

Lillard is always a guy you prefer targeting at home and I personally like playing him in games that I know he’ll be playing up for. Hosting the Lakers, Lillard is going to play 35+ minutes here and you can guarantee 20-25 shots. The Lakers are known as a great defense, but Lillard can’t be stopped by anyone when he’s on fire. If the Balzers what to stay in this game, Damian Lillard is going to have a huge night. His price is up on FanDuel, but he’s still under $10k and we’ve seen much worse.

Kendrick Nunn - PG, MIA vs. WAS ($5,100)

This Miami Heat team is going to be extremely popular and rightfully so. The Wizards play at the league's fastest pace (107.4) and don’t play any defense. The Heat are expected to put up about 120 points tonight and I don’t have any issue with playing up to three of these guys. Kendrick Nunn is far too cheap on FanDuel and a lock in my cash games. He plays 28-32 minutes every night and this match-up is absolutely perfect for him. He loves playing in the open floor and the Wizards give up more open threes than anyone in basketball. All the Kendrick Nunn, and you can play Butler and Herro at guard as well.

Consider - Jimmy Butler, Zach LaVine, Terry Rozier, Rajon Rondo


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Anthony Davis - PF, LAL @ POR ($10,700)

You can obviously play Giannis, but he’s insanely expensive on FanDuel and we’ll save some money with Anthony Davis. Davis has been great of late, and it’s about time for another 60 burger. The Blazers are weak down low and give up the fourth most rebounds in the paint. Hassan Whiteside gets a lot of numbers, but he’s one of the worst defending big men in the entire NBA. If the Blazers elect to let the PF’s cover AD, Skal Labissiere and Carmelo Anthony may Gould out by halftime. This is a dream match-up for AD and a lot of his usual ownership will be on Giannis.

Justise Winslow - SF, MIA vs. WAS ($5,600)

If Winslow plays, he’s an amazing play over on FanDuel. He played a combined 66 minutes in the last two games, so I’d guess he takes the court here. Pay attention to Twitter as Winslow could certainly sit and it would make Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson great plays. If Winslow does play, he thrives in the open floor and has looked great since coming back from injury. He’s just $5,600 on FanDuel and the match-up with Washington couldn’t be better.

Consider - Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bam Adebayo, Danilo Gallinari, Eric Paschall


FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Jokic - C, DEN @ BOS ($8,500)

Jokic is still way too cheap on FanDuel at $8,500 and you attack this Celtics team in the paint. They have some tremendous defenders on the perimeter but lack any type of defensive presence under the rim. It's why Brad Stevens hates to play Enes Kanter. Jokic has been terrible of late, there's no question about it. That will just keep his ownership down as people look at his game logs and run. I think his floor is 40 in this game and we all know where the ceiling of Nikola Jokic lies. I would play Jokic in a bad match-up at this price, let alone a good one.

Consider - Hassan Whiteside, Montrezl Harrell
