NBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks - FanDuel DFS Basketball Advice for 1/19/16

By Keith Allison [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons

Only four games on this Tuesday. It's such a shame after all of the fun we had during the day and into the night on Monday. Still, there should be plenty of fantasy points to go around. Let's see if we can find their source for this slate.

In this article, I will be providing you with Daily NBA picks for FanDuel for 1/19/16. 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 Point Guards

Tyler Johnson (vs MIL) - $4,500

With Goran Dragic and Beno Udrih both out again on Tuesday, Tyler Johnson is left to run the point for the Heat. He played well on Sunday, and we should expect more of the same in what should be a pace-up game against the Bucks. Point guard is a great place to spend down tonight if you can bare fading Russell Westbrook.

Norris Cole (vs. MIN) - $4,100

This pick hinges on the status of Tyreke Evans. He sat out on Monday, and if he sits out again Cole should see right around 30 minutes. Cole struggled to put up big FDP in his spot on Monday, so hopefully his ownership remains low and we can buy low on him here.


FanDuel DFS Shooting Guards

Gary Harris (vs. OKC) - $4,400

The shooting guard position is a barren wasteland on Tuesday... again. It seems like a trend for Tuesdays. I only see one standout play value-wise and it comes in the form of Gary Harris. He is getting huge minutes every game, and while he doesn't always come away with big production, the pace of this game should definitely provide opportunities for him. When it comes to your second spot, you're better off throwing a dart.


FanDuel DFS Small Forwards

Kevin Durant (at DEN) - $9,900

You have to use your money somewhere. This is as good a spot as any. The Nuggets will not have an answer for Durant on offense. This game could get out of hand in the second half, but three quarters should be enough for Durant to hit value on Tuesday.

Paul George (at PHO) - $8,700

I'm not a fan of George's price right now. However, I'm also not a fan of rostering both Westbrook and Durant. So, with the extra money to spend, I prefer George over the other small forwards when price is not an issue. While I don't expect him to hit 50 FDP, 40 is reasonable.


FanDuel DFS Power Forwards

Anthony Davis (vs. MIN) - $10,300

Who's going to get in Brow's way from Minnesota? *Crickets* Yeah, that's what I thought. Davis gets a great matchup in what should be a fast-paced game. Build your lineup around him on this short slate.

Markieff Morris (vs. IND) - $4,900

I've been monitoring this Morris twin for the past few games, and I think this is the perfect time to start playing him. His minutes and usage are both trending upwards, and this Suns team needs a spark like the city of Buffalo needs a shovel. Morris commands the ball on offense, and as long as he's on the floor he'll get you some peripheral stats too.


FanDuel DFS Centers

Hassan Whiteside (vs. MIL) - $7,800

Whiteside is a big upside play, but his foul issues could come to light against Greg Monroe. He's a great tournament play, as Monroe is not long enough to block a Whiteside hook shot. If the Miami big man can stay in the game, the fast pace should lead to plenty of blocks and rebounds for the young player. I love his upside on a small slate like this one.
