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)
Giannis Antetokounmpo vs DEN ($11,000) - Giannis is a little pricey, but this should be a high scoring affair. The Nuggets play at a high pace and are allowing the most fantasy points to guards in the league. Plus, Giannis will be looking to bounce back after a poor game against Cleveland.
Mid Cap Players ($5,000 to $8,000)
DeAndre Jordan vs HOU ($7,700) - The Rockets are allowing centers to average 61 fantasy points a night over their last five games. 61! Plus, DeAndre is coming off a monster 51 fantasy point performance. DeAndre numbers should go up as well with Chris Paul getting back to 100 percent.
Willie Cauley-Stein vs BKN ($5,400) - Cauley-Stein is seeing a bigger workload with DeMarcus Cousins’s departure, and has taken advantage. WCS has posted over 22 fantasy points, three of his last four games, including a 40 point fantasy performance. I know he is always a risky pick with his inconsistent play, but this matchup against the Nets is perfect for him.
High-Risk, High-Reward Players
Jeremy Lin vs SAC ($5,400) - Lin could be a sneaky play tonight at $5,400. With three days rest, He could see a minutes boost and a jump in production. Obviously, there is a risk with him still being a few games back from missing such a long stretch of games. So take Lin at your own risk.
Khris Middleton vs DEN ($5,100) - Middleton and Lin are similar plays, both guys missed a lot of time and have the potential to see a minutes boost tonight. So just like Lin, take Middleton at your own risk.
