My Favorite NBA Fanduel DFS Picks
PG Deaaron Fox ($8,200)
He only played 20 minutes in last night’s game and still finished with 40 FDP! The Suns are allowing a league worst 61 FDP to opposing PGs over the last 5 games. He’s slowly rounding into form after a shoulder injury scare and could break out big time in this matchup.
SG Andrew Wiggins ($6,500)
With all the injuries to Robert Covington and Derrick Rose, Wiggins has stepped up his game and picked up the scoring load. He took 23 shots last game and scored 28 points against the Lakers. He always plays heavy minutes for this team and the Wizards just blew out the Thunder at home. This is a good game to target and Wiggins is one of my favorite plays.
SF TJ Warren ($6,200)
He saw a big bump in usage once Devin Booker left the game. If Booker sits, TJ Warren is the chalk play of the night going against the Kings coming off a b2b.
PF Thaddeus Young ($6,000)
He’s scored at least 32 FDP in 4 straight road games and always logs heavy minutes for the Pacers. I love his consistency and the matchup could pay dividends against a Cavs team that allows 49 FDP to opposing PFs over the last 5 games.
C Deandre Ayton ($7,800)
If Booker sits, then Ayton should help replace a lot of Booker’s scoring along with TJ Warren. He’s got a solid floor and the Kings have been giving up some big games to the C position lately.
My Favorite Game Stacks of the Night
Raptors under 8k – Siakam, Van Fleet, Wright, Powell
The Hawks will be overmatched against the Raptors who just got back their All star PG. Kawhi should play and I don’t think the starters will play all 4 quarters. What this does is open up a ton of value for the cheap Raptors who could see a bump in minutes.
Pacers – Joseph, Bogdanovic, Young, Sabonis
If Collison sits, then the Pacers become one of the top stacks of the night. All those starters should play 30+ minutes and could crush their salary tags.
Kings – Suns
This is my favorite game to stack tonight. While it doesn’t have the highest total, it has a much closer spread (-2) than the Warriors game (-17). Both these teams are young and don’t play a lot of defense. I like Dearron Fox, Bogdanovic, and Stein while the Suns I’m targetting are TJ Warren, Josh Jackson (if Booker sits) and Deandre Ayton. Jamal Crawford is a cheap flier for GPPs if Booker sits.
