Anthony Davis, Stephen Curry headline the top fantasy plays for FanDuel on Friday. Davis leads his New Orleans Pelicans into Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder. While Stephen Curry looks to keep his streak going in Atlanta against the best team in the Eastern Conference.
Along with these two stars the list of other top caliber players on the court include Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, James Harden, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony to name a few. Six out of 11 contests have an over/under of 200 while the 12th game has yet to have odds placed on it in Vegas.
Of those six games the one contest that stands out is the Warriors verse Hawks matchup that currently has an over/under of 214.5. This makes Curry along with teammate Klay Thompson and Hawks starters Al Horford, Paul Milsap and Jeff Teague all solid options.
Nonetheless here is our FanDuel Lineup for Friday February 6th.
PG – Stephen Curry ($10,400): Curry is a no brainer to build your lineup around after posting six consecutive games of 40 or more fantasy points. Vegas also has this game of an over/under of 214.5 points.
PG – C.J. Watson ($4,500): The Indiana Pacers point guard is one of the bargain type plays of the night for us. This was a toss up with the Los Angeles Lakers Jordan Clarkson but we went with Watson who has five 20 plus fantasy performances in his last seven games.
SG – Jodie Meeks ($4,100): If Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was a guarantee this lineup would be tweaked a little with him in the rotation. Nonetheless we don’t have a clear cut answer so Meeks is the option against a Denver Nuggets team allowing the fourth most fantasy points to the shooting guard position.
SG – Eric Gordon ($6,100): Since we splurged at the top and bottom of our lineup we were looking for a player who consistently puts up 20 plus fantasy performances. That guy is Gordon including two 35 plus performances in his last three contests.
SF – Terrence Ross ($3,800): Similar to Meeks we love the small forward position for the Toronto Raptors against the the Los Angeles Clippers. If James Johnson doesn’t play this helps Meeks in fantasy value. This contest is also another one Vegas views as a high scoring contest.
SF – Wilson Chandler ($5,800): Chandler has failed to record over 20 fantasy points since back on January 20th. Since that time he has four 30 plus fantasy performances along with four games with over 21 fantasy points.
PF – Anthony Davis ($11,400): Davis is an expensive commodity despite failing to reach the 40 fantasy point mark in his last contest against the Thunder we still like his play. If you elect to go cheaper with a Greg Monroe you could dish out the savings to your second point guard or cheap shooting guard.
PF – Ed Davis ($5,300): The Lakers power forward has the third best fantasy play against a Orlando Magic team allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing power forwards. Davis is also coming off an impressive 20 rebound performance in his last contest against Milwaukee.
C – Al Horford ($8,400): This game has the makings to be a high scoring contest on both sides making Horford a great play. We also looked at Millsap, Kyle Korver and Jeff Teague but elected to pass based on a salary structure.
