FanDuel DFS Guards

Jalen Brunson - PG, vs CLE ($6,100)

Brunson has been excellent of late and there is no reason to believe that it won't continue tonight against a weak Cavs team. In the last five games or so, Brunson has become a key player in Dallas' rotation- as the season comes to an end the Mavs will certainly be looking to play Brunson as much as possible to see how he will fit into their roster in years to come. In his last five games, Brunson has played 34+ minutes four times and has flashed a near 50 FanDuel point ceiling. His price has risen accordingly but he still offers plenty of upside.

Monte Morris - SG, vs IND ($4,300)

As the playoffs approach and the Nuggets being to close in on their playoff rotation, Morris has carved out nearly 30 minutes as a key off-the-bench player. Morris has been shooting the ball extremely well and has even started to take minutes away from Gary Harris and Will Barton. The Nuggets are running a tight, eight-man, rotation right now which means that Morris' minutes are fairly safe. Morris is an excellent cash option and can be played in tournaments- there is a good chance that his ownership will be high so if he is played on a tournament team, be sure to differentiate at other positions.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Paul George - SF, vs GSW ($10,200)

It's no secret that tonight's Thunder vs Warriors game should be fun and having multiple pieces from the game will be helpful for an DFS lineup. However, the vast majority of the higher-usage players in the game are priced quite high making stacking pretty difficult. If you can make a lineup with multiple pieces from this game, go for it. Regardless, George seems to be the best option of any of the studs on both teams. After soaring to $12,500 just a month ago, George's price has leveled at a place that offers some huge upside. There's going to be plenty of three point attempts tonight and for this game to stay close, George will be looked to for some production. George has a ceiling of nearly 75 FanDuel points which makes him an excellent tournament option.

LaMarcus Aldridge -PF, vs. POR ($9,200)

At this point in the season, sometimes finding players on teams that are still fighting for something can be profitable. The Spurs will be in the playoffs this year as they currently hold the six spot but a strong finish could go a long way in moving up the standings- the Western Conference is extremely bunched and positions can change numerous times until the end of the season. Aldridge has been the backbone of this team all season long and tonight shouldn't be any different. In what could very well be a playoff matchup against the Trailblazers, Aldridge should see right around 35 minutes and has a ceiling of 65 FanDuel points. Aldridge can be used in cash and tournament formats.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Rudy Gobert - C, vs BKN ($9,400)

Center is somewhat ugly for tonight but Gobert seems to be the safest option. Due to some recent poor play, Gobert's price has seen a little bit of  decrease which makes hitting value more reasonable. Gobert should see about 33-35 minutes and as long as he can stay out of foul trouble, should have an excellent chance of being the highest scoring center of the night.
