FanDuel DFS Guards

D'Angelo Russell - SG, BKN vs WAS (FD - $9,100)

Russell is looking fantastic as of late with 46 FanDuel points or more in four of his last five games and is looking to continue that trend tonight against the Wizards in a game with a massive over-under set at 237 points. He comes in with a usage rate sitting at 33.2% this season while producing 1.31 fantasy points per minute, both of which are highest on the Nets currently. Russell has attempted nine or more three-pointers in four straight games, giving him immense pure scoring upside, which is what you want to be looking for in GPPs tonight. Ownership should be spread out on this 11-game slate and with his upside, he could be a great building block tonight.

Tyus Jones - PG, MIN @ ATL (FD - $5,300)

Jones is coming off of a fantastic two-game stretch, yes it's small, where he scored 37 FanDuel points or more in both games. He is seeing this extra time since Jeff Teague is dealing with an injury and is currently listed as questionable for this game against the Hawks. Should Jones get the start, he is in a great spot to continue this recent trend since the Hawks are giving up 51 FanDuel points per game to point guards, which is dead last in the league. An over-under sitting at 236 points should make this a great spot for fantasy production.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Josh Richardson - SF, MIA vs GS (FD - $6,400)

Richardson is about as consistent as they come for NBA DFS, but he isn't ever a flashy option. He comes in with 32 minutes or more in each of his last 12 games while producing 21 or more fantasy points in 11 of those 12 games. Yes, that is under one fantasy point per minute, but as a mid-range option in terms of price, that is some solid production you can count on. The matchup tonight should see the production trend upward since he is up against the Warriors who are allowing 41 FanDuel points per game to small forwards, which is the seventh worst in the league.

Derrick Favors - PF, UTA vs LAC (FD - $6,400)

Don't look now, but Favors is viable in DFS and has been for some time. Yes, the player that has been so tilting to roster over the past few seasons has posted 22 or more FanDuel points in each of his last 10 games, with 25 or more in each of his last five games. You may not like to click that lock button but ownership should be lower tonight and he is up against the Clippers who are allowing 48 FanDuel points per game to power forwards this season.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Thomas Bryant - C, WAS @ BKN (FD - $4,200)

Bryant posted a whopping 54 FanDuel points in his most recent out and played over 30 minutes for the first time since the beginning of the month, which hopefully, is a sign of things to come. He has a very solid 19.8% usage rate while producing 1.24 fantasy points per minute this season, which is simply amazing for a player under $5K. Yes, his minutes haven't been consistent but the Nets are giving up the third most points to centers this season and truly a tough spot to pass on.
