Worth The FanDuel Investment

Anthony Davis (NOP, PF) - $11,700

The Brow has been doing it all while playing maximum minutes. Golden State, the best defensive team on the year in many categories, does not seem to have an answer for Davis. That may not be a bad thing, however, as Golden State is up 2-0 and is favored by nearly two possessions entering Thursday.

 

Stephen Curry (GS, PG) - $9,700

After a great Game 1 performance, Curry struggled shooting at times in Game 2, while New Orleans made it close. The window of probability for Curry to have another tough shooting night is so small, that only professional darts players could make the toss.

For those that believe in external forces: On a personal note, Curry is my girlfriend’s favorite player because she saw him play once. Every time she recommends Curry, the dude puts up 30/10 games. She wants to watch Curry again on Thursday. Basketball Gods rejoice.

 

Isaiah Thomas (BOS, SG) - $7,000

Maybe Brad Stevens is on to something by not starting Thomas. Perhaps it is because Thomas’s psyche is so used to coming off the bench that it would be impossible for him to start. Whatever the reason is for him to come off the bench, it is clearly working for Thomas. He will continue to exploit the weak Cavalier perimeter.

 

Giannis Antetokuonmpo (MIL, SG) - $6,500

About the only DFS playable player in Thursday’s Chicago-Milwaukee matchup is the Greek. He had a tough shooting night but was able to contribute across the board to gain some nice value. He should fix his shooting woes and continue to add DFS value for his owners on Thursday.

 

Jared Sullinger (BOS, PF) - $6,000

Time for either Sullinger or Brandon Bass to step up, and judging by last game’s performances, it will be Sullinger. If he plays his game, there is no one on Cleveland that can matchup one-on-one against him. Put the big boy pants on.

 

Fanduel Sleepers & Value Picks

Quincy Pondexter (NO, SF) - $4,200

The Pelicans are due to win at least one game at home. Game 3 is set up for them to win. They will need another solid performance from Pondexter, who has quietly put up solid numbers and has been given a plethora of scoring opportunities.

 

Harrison Barnes (GS, SF) - $4,100

The other swingman that is destined for value just so happens to be playing in the same game. Barnes has played in the two games against the Pelicans, despite his limited scoring in Game 2. He is too talented to have another poor scoring performance for his standards.
