NBA Fanduel DFS Top 5 Picks: January 7th, 2019
Welcome to our Fanduel NBA DFS Picks for January 7th, 2019. In this article, I share my favorite Fanduel Starting 5 plays at each position.
Be sure to check the NBA starting lineups before lock. If you need help doing research, read our Fanduel NBA strategy guide and Fanduel NBA research pages for more information.
PG Kyrie Irving ($9,000)
He’s coming back for tonight’s game and has fresh legs going against a Nets team that giving up 54 FDP per game to PGs over the last 5 games.
Kyrie has a high ceiling at home, and even if this game gets out of control, he can put up his stats in just 3 quarters.
SG Bogdan Bogdanovic ($6,600)
Iman Shumper is OUT so Bogdanovic has entered the starting lineup and put up a strong performance against the Warriors last time out. He’s slightly cheaper than Buddy Hield ($7,400) who I also like tonight, but Hield is more scoring dependent. Bogdanovic will contribute to his stat line in several ways and he’s cheaper.
SF Giannis Antetokoumpo ($12,100)
He’s putting up big game after big game and gets a nice matchup again at home. He’s scored at least 60+ FDP in each of his last 2 home matchups VS the Jazz. He’s also cheaper than James Harden ($12,900) and I’ll have sares of Giannis as well as Harden in tournaments.
PF Blake Grffin ($9,600)
He has b2b 50+ FDP performances and the Spurs defense is much worse on the road VS in San Antonio.
C Julius Randle ($8,500)
He’s quietly putting up monster numbers while playing in the shadow of Anthony Davis. The production is way up: over 47+ FDP in 3 of the last 4 games. People will see the matchup VS Grizzlies and avoid it, but he actually dropped 50 FDP on them in December. He usually plays very well at home.
My Favorite Game Stacks of the Night
Kings – Hield, Bogdanovic, Jackson, Stein
The Kings almost defeated the Warriors at home last game and their offense is really clicking now. Bogdanovic is an upgrade to the starting lineup and gives this team a really dynamic offense.
Trailblazers – Lillard, Mccollum, Turner, Nurkic
The Trailblazers have the highest vegas total on the slate but the only problem is a potential blowout. If this game stays close, all the of the starters should reach their projections.
Nuggets – Rockets
The Rockets finally lost a game after their incredible OT win VS the Warriors and Harden’s 40+ point scoring streak ended. He actually missed a contested layup in garbage time and fell just short of 40 points with 38. He’s still in play and I like all of the rockets tonight at home. Harden, House, Rivvers and Capela are great targets while you can play Murray, Harris, Milsap and Jokic on the other side of the stack.
