FanDuel DFS Guards

Damian Lillard - PG, vs. OKC ($9,700)

Lillard made most of his noise from beyond the arc on Sunday, finishing the night going 5-for-11 from that range. He didn't contribute much outside of that, but the 39 minutes, 21 shots, and 30 points that he had in Game 1 is hard to look away from when building your lineup on Tuesday night, especially considering he will cost you significantly less than Russell Westbrook, who is priced much higher at $12,100. It is also hard to look past C.J. McCollum as well, who did not have a minutes restriction in Game 1 and was also heavily involved on the offensive front by going 9-for-24 from the field for an impressive 24 points.

DeMar DeRozan - SG, @ DEN ($8,500)

DeRozan's upside is too hard to ignore considering his asking price on Tuesday night. He played 39 minutes in Game 1, acquiring a double-double by way of 18 points and 12 rebounds. He has a usage percentage of 29.4, the highest on the team, and should continue to have the ball in his hands in an attempt to put his team up by two games as the series heads back to San Antonio.

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Pascal Siakam - PF, vs. ORL ($7,800)

Siakam took a team-high 24 shots against the Magic in the series opener, accumulating 24 points, and was only on rebound shy of a double-double. While Kyle Lowry continues to struggle, look for the 25-year-old to step up as the second option on the offensive end for the Raptors on Tuesday as they look to knot this series up.

Jerami Grant - PF, @ POR ($5,600)

Grant shined in Game 1 and will continue to get heavy minutes throughout the remainder of the series. He only had eight points but was able to supplement that by swatting four shots in the narrow loss to Portland. His price is reasonable, especially considering that the Trail Blazers are undersized underneath without Jusuf Nurkic in the fold.

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Enes Kanter - C, vs. OKC ($7,800)

Though Kanter leaves a lot to be desired on the defensive end, his ability to get after it offensively against his former team makes him a practical pick on Tuesday night. He was an animal in Game 1, scoring 20 points while pulling down 18 boards in the process so look for him to fill the gap in the middle and continue to get some time on the floor in Game 2.
