By Keith Allison from Hanover, MD, USA (LeBron James) [CC BY-SA 2.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons

The Washington Wizards and the Chicago Bulls are where it is at tonight.

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for DraftKings for 1/11/16. The picks will range from some of the elite players, to mid-priced options, and value plays.

Without wasting anymore time, let's get down to it!

FanDuel DFS Guards

John Wall (at CHI, $9,900)

John Wall started to go on a decline prior to his last game, but after his solid showing against the Orlando Magic, in which is posted over 45 fantasy points, it seems as if John Wall is fine. He is definitely the best point guard on the board tonight, as Stephen Curry gets a difficult matchup against the Miami Heat, who are one of the best teams in the league at defending opposing point guards. Wall has the ability to score as many points as Curry does, and he is much cheaper. He will save some salary cap and, most likely, outscore Curry tonight. There is no reason to avoid him on such a small slate.

Shane Larkin (vs SAS, $4,300)

Shane Larkin is not a great basketball player. In fact, he is probably the worst starting point guard in the league right now. However, he is going to continue to play 25-30 minutes per game because Jarrett Jack is out for the season. Larkin gets a tough matchup tonight against the San Antonio Spurs, but he has potential. Whenever you can find a point guard under $4,500 that is going to play big minutes, especially on a small slate, play him. Larkin will allow you to get some of the better players on the board, like Wall and Gasol, tonight.


FanDuel DFS Forwards

Pau Gasol (vs WAS, $8,700)

Pau Gasol is the best forward option on the board tonight against the Washington Wizards. The Wizards are an uptempo team, and they are going to keep this game close. That means that Gasol is going to play big minutes. Gasol did not look great in his last game against the Atlanta Hawks, but aside from that game, he has been great. There is no reason to avoid him. He should bounce back nicely against the Wizards tonight. On such a small slate, it is essential to get the highest scoring players, and Gasol will be one of them.

Nikola Mirotic (vs WAS, $5,500)

Nikola Mirotic makes for a great tournament play tonight against the Washington Wizards. The Wizards are horrible against both the power forward and small forward positions. That means that Mirotic should have a solid outing. In his last game, against the Atlanta Hawks, he posted over 40 fantasy points. He has the ability to do that again, but he only does it on rare occasion. If the Chicago Bulls finally realize that he should easily see 30 plus minutes per game, he will get a little more consistent. Until then, only play him in tournaments.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Marcin Gortat (at CHI, $6,900) 

Marcin Gortat is the best center option on the board tonight against the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are the worst team in the league against opposing centers, and Gortat is having a great season. He plays well with John Wall. Gortat has over 25 fantasy points in all of his last 10 games, and over over 30 fantasy points in six of them (in one of them, he scored over 50). He has great upside, but he is also consistent. He can be used in both 50/50 contests and tournaments tonight, and I'll be using him in almost every lineup.
