FanDuel DFS Guards

Ish Smith – PG, vs. BKN ($6,400)

Smith has a favorable matchup against a Brooklyn Nets team that is allowing a second-worst 23 points per game to opposing playmakers this season. With a shortage of quality options from the one spot on Sunday, it wouldn’t be out of the question for Smith to be the highest-scoring guard on the slate, especially if Kyrie Irving is out once again with a bum shoulder.

Tim Hardaway Jr. – SG, @ LAL ($5,900)

Though he is listed on FanDuel as a shooting guard, which is his natural position, he will start at the three spot, just like he has been for most of the season. Hardaway continues to operate under a minutes restriction but has managed to produce efficiently despite his limited time on the court, averaging 22 points per contest since his return. He has a favorable matchup to boot and won’t cost you an arm and a leg either.

Luke Kennard – SG, vs. BKN ($3,700)

If you need a solid value play, give Kennard a shot. Coach Stan Van Gundy has indicated that the rookie has earned an expanded role in the lineup, especially after his 16 point performance against Washington just a few nights ago. At that price, chances are high that he hits the five times value mark on Sunday, especially since his team will be going up against Brooklyn.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Kristaps Porzingis – PF, @ LAL ($9,600)

When the Knicks and Lakers met earlier in the year, Porzingis dropped a double-double via 37 points and 11 boards in addition to recording five blocks. Granted, that game went into overtime but who is to say that he won't do that in regulation? Los Angeles doesn’t know what the hell is going on up front this season and has been playing musical chairs with Kyle Kuzma, Larry Nance Jr., Julius Randle and Brook Lopez. While they continue to try to figure out who they want to trade this week, expect Porzingis to put up another solid showing.

LaMarcus Aldridge – PF, vs. IND ($9,100)

Aldridge has been playing like he did back in his Portland days and has really stepped up to the plate in the absence of several key figures throughout the season. With the Pacers giving up 23 points, 10 boards and allowing opposing power forwards to shoot 50 percent from the field this season, this is a no-brainer, especially since the team will be without Myles Turner once again.

Kyle Anderson – SF, vs. IND ($5,000)

With Kawhi Leonard out once against, Anderson will once again pick up the slack and see minutes as a starter. He played relatively well outside of the scoring department on Friday night against Toronto, accumulating 11 rebounds, three blocks and two steals to help offset his miserable offensive production. At a $5,000 asking price, you really can’t go wrong.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Andre Drummond - C, vs. BKN ($10,500)

Drummond is coming off of a 14 point, 21 board performance against the Washington Wizards on Friday night. Brooklyn has been notoriously atrocious in the middle all year long and has three centers in Tyler Zeller, Jahlil Okafor and Jarrett Allen who are sporting an average defensive rating of 108.4 percent this season between the three of them. Expect Drummond to crush it the glass once again and walk away with a double-double by the time everything is all said and done. He is a little pricey, but is definitely worth it.
