FanDuel DFS Guards

Eric Bledsoe - PG, MIL vs WAS (FD - $7,500)

Bledsoe returned from his one-game injury and was able to produce solid fantasy numbers, as he had 44 points in just 26 minutes. He comes in at a very reasonable price tonight and is now up against the Wizards who are giving 45 FanDuel points per game to point guards this season, which is 10th-worst in the league. Bledsoe has a 23% usage rate this season and is producing 1.14 fantasy points per minute this season. He is viable in any format tonight since we have an over-under sitting at 230 points, which brings plenty of fantasy value.

Buddy Hield - SG, SAC vs HOU (FD - $6,700)

Hield has posted 30 or more FanDuel points in five straight games and is in a spot to continue that strong production tonight versus the Rockets in a game where the over-under is set at 233 points. You should be looking to have plenty of exposure to this game simply due to the fantasy point expectation and Hield is a great choice since the Rockets are 22nd overall in defensive efficiency, making this a very favorable matchup for a player who has shown to be in a groove right now.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Will Barton - SF, DEN @ BKN (FD-  $5,500)

Barton is very moderately priced tonight and is now up against the Nets who are 23rd in defensive efficiency versus small forwards this season. Barton has dealt with plenty of injuries this season but has now posted 21 points or more in three straight games while playing 24 minutes or more in each of those games. He is starting to have a solid role with the team and that should continue tonight due to this very fantasy-friendly matchup.

Derrick Favors - PF, UTA vs PHO (FD - $5,600)

Favors might not be your favorite player to roster in NBA DFS, but he comes in with a very easy matchup tonight against the Suns and you should be looking at him as a nice point per dollar play. He has a very modest 16.8% usage rate this season but is producing 1.13 fantasy points per minute with those limited touches, which makes him all the more valuable since you are getting production from a player who isn't expensive. The Suns are allowing 46 FanDuel points per game to power forwards this season, putting him in a great spot to reach value yet again.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Nikola Jokic - C, DEN @ BKN (FD - $10,800)

The Joker is coming off of two very average games for him, which is a bit surprising since he posted 61 fantasy points or more in four of his previous five games. That is the level of production we have come to expect from him over the past few seasons and he will 100% be returning to that level tonight since he is up against the Nets who are giving up 61 FanDuel points per game to centers this season. He should be a big part of your player pool if you are deciding to roll out multiple lineups tonight.
