FanDuel DFS Guards

Kent Bazemore - SG, vs PHX ($4,800)

Bazemore has been playing really well of late and the loss of Jeremy Lin has finally allowed him to see some decent minutes. In what should be a high-paced matchup tonight against the Suns, Bazemore should see nearly 30 minutes. Bazemore is more of a tournament option as his high 50 FanDuel point ceiling could shoot lineups up leaderboards but his low, sub 15 FanDuel point, floor does make him somewhat risky. Regardless, Bazemore has an excellent opportunity to 7-8x his very fair price tag.

Chris Paul - PG, at GSW ($8,000)

Leading up to the All-Star break, Paul was finally finding consistent fantasy output and lucky for us, that output seems to be continuing after the break. Paul should see upwards of 35 minutes in what should be an excellent real-life and fantasy game against the Warriors. As he showed last game, Paul has the ability to fill all parts of the stat sheet with near triple-double upside. Due to his recent play, Paul is an excellent option in both cash and tournament formats.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

J.J. Redick - SF, vs POR ($5,400)

Redick continues to prove that he is an elite 3-point shooter and with Embiid out again tonight, Redick should be in store for some extra usage; he has the potential of throwing up 10+ threes tonight. Redick's price has dropped a bit due to some recent poor play but a near lock for 33+ minutes should allow him to reach value at his $5,400 price tag. Redick has a reasonably high floor of about 17 FanDuel point and a ceiling of about 50 points.

Ivan Rabb - PF, at CLE ($3,800)

With news that JJJ will be out for quite some time with a quad injury, it is likely that Rabb will move into a consistent starter role. As he proved last night, Rabb has the ability to make a fantasy impact when given a good chunk of minutes. At just $3,800, against the Cavs, Rabb has the ability to crush value with his near 12x upside. As long as Rabb is in the starting lineup or his 25+ minutes are confirmed, he is an excellent play in both cash and tournaments. There is a good chance that he will foster some ownership in tournaments but it should stay under control due to the big slate size.


FanDuel DFS Centers

DeMarcus Cousins - C, vs HOU ($7,800)

In my opinion, Cousins will continue to be an excellent tournament option until his price climbs back up to meet the elite talent that he is. At his current price, on any given night he could go for 60+ FanDuel points and make it nearly impossible to win tournaments without him. His minutes limit has lifted and there is no doubt that if he gets hot he could see 30+ minutes in what should be a back and forth matchup against the Rockets. Stacking Cousins and Paul to create a mini game-stacks looks to be a very interesting tournament option. Cousins can be reserved as a multi-entry GPP play- if you're playing 3+ lineups, having some Boogie could prove to be profitable.
