Here are today’s daily fantasy picks for FanDuel.com:
PG: Russell Westbrook $9,200: Over the last 10 games Denver ranks dead last in fantasy points given to opposing PG’s – averaging over 40+ fppg. The fact that Westbrook is on fire at the moment solidifies the choice.
PG: Chris Paul $7,700: Paul follows up his strong performance against one of the better D’s in the league with a much softer matchup against the Cavs, who should still be without Irving. Paul has been playing much better on the road than at home, averaging over 40 fppg in his last four road games.
SG: Carlos Delfino $4,600: A great value pick that has tremendous potential if James Harden, who has a banged up knee, sits out for this contest. Orlando is a team that is struggling with injuries and still is trying to find how all their newly acquired players like Udrih and Harris fit in the rotation. Delfino could definitely see opportunities to launch threes all night.
SG: Gordon Hayward $5,600: Charlotte, one of the worst all around defenses in league, is especially vulnerable to shooting guards. Gordon has been playing well of late and the Jazz also might be without Milsap, leaving more scoring chances for the the rest of the squad.
SF: Tobias Harris $4,500: Harris has three straight strong games after being acquired from the Bucks, and the Magic have very few scoring options outside of Afflalo, so this become a great value pick considering Houston’s inability to play defense as a team.
SF: Al-Farouq Aminu $4,800: Detroit has given up 43.6 fantasy points per game to opposing small forwards, and Aminu can do a bit of everything statistically, so there is hope for a good night.
PF: Kevin Garnett $7,300: Golden State plays small with Bogut out, and has been giving up big points to the PF position. Pierce and Garnett are a two man team with Rondo done for the year, so he is a pretty safe bet to play heavy minutes and record solid stat lines.
PF: Josh Smith $9,500: Last game it was Horford powering his way to 60 fantasy points, and now it’s Smith’s turn as he faces this juicy matchup with the hapless Suns squad who give up big numbers to PFs.
C: Omer Asik $6,300: Asik is a double-double machine, reaching double digits in both rebounds and points in six of his last ten games. Orlando also gives up a ton of points to centers.
