Daily NBA FanDuel Plays 1/4/17
Things to Remember
-Always check for injuries prior to tip-off.
-Daily FanDuel plays are up Monday through Friday.
-No picks on nights of only four games or less.
-Stats are based off Fanduel rules
Big Cap Players ($8,000 and Up)
DeMarcus Cousins vs MIA ($11,200) - It looks like Hassan Whiteside will be out again tonight, giving Cousins a great matchup. So not only do the Heat allow centers to average over 47 fantasy points a night, but they will be without their starting center. Cousins should be able to have his way in the paint.
Giannis Antetokounmpo vs NYK ($10,500) - Giannis is a great play tonight against the Knicks, a team that allowed James Harden to post a MONSTER STAT LINE last week. But it's not boom or bust for Giannis, as he has posted over 40 fantasy points in 12 straight games. So you get the best of both worlds with Giannis, a high ceiling and a high floor.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
Small Cap Players ($5,000 and Under)
Michael Carter-Williams vs CLE ($4,700) - MCW is someone to consider if you are looking for a cheap point guard. It looks like he is now the starter in Chicago and will receive his fair share of minutes. Plus, the Cavs are allowing point guards to average over 46 fantasy points a night.
Matt Barnes vs MIA ($3,800) - Barnes could be a solid punt play tonight. Rudy Gay will miss another game with a hip injury, opening up more minutes at small forward for Barnes. Plus, Barnes has posted over 20 fantasy points in three of his last five games.
