Hump Day has arrived as the NBA schedule takes center stage opening up the door to take cash in on some FanDuel action. Tonight’s slate of action features a very busy night of basketball with 11 games taking to the hardwood.
This heavy load of action delivers us a long list of top tier daily fantasy basketball options to build our FanDuel Lineup around. At the top of those options include a trio of the NBA top stars who are averaging over 53 fantasy points per game. Those top stars include point guard Russell Westbrook, shooting guard James Harden and power forward Anthony Davis.
Along with the top fantasy options we also have a great list of mid tier options as well a few fantasy sleepers that could help you build your entire lineup tonight. One of the teams we are looking at tonight to find some of those mid tier/fantasy sleeper options in is the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Entering tonight’s contest against the Indiana Pacers, the Cavs will be playing the second game of a back to back as well as their fourth game over six days. While we have no breaking news about this contest we do expect the team to consider reducing the minutes or even give the night off to a few of their stars. This opens up the door for players like Channing Frye and Iman Shumpert who should see their minutes increase tonight.
Here is our top NBA FanDuel Options for Wednesday November 16th, 2016.
NBA FanDuel Point Guard Options
Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder: Westbrook is one of those options that you just can’t look past on when building your FanDuel lineups. While he carries a heavy fantasy price tag he also delivers a big time fantasy performance nearly each night he is out on the hardwood.
Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix Suns: Bledsoe is another interesting option tonight at the point guard positin. The Suns point guard has posted at least 31 fantasy points in four straight games. Tonight he will get a chance to take on a Denver Nuggets team that ranks 1st in the NBA in fantasy points allowed to opposing point guards.
Mid Tier Fantasy Options we like include Emmanuel Mudiay, Derrick Rose and Tim Frazier.
Fantasy Sleeper Option we like is Patty Mills.
NBA FanDuel Shooting Guard Options
Gerald Henderson, Philadelphia 76ers: Henderson will be a nice fantasy sleeper option tonight that we suggest slotting into your GPP lineups. The 76ers shooting guard has posted at least 24 minutes per game over their last five games. Tonight he has a shot to put up some solid fantasy numbers against a Washington Wizards team that has struggled to slow down opposing shooting guards.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks: The Greek Freak is another solid fantasy options tonight and the top option among the shooting guard position. The Bucks shooting guard has posted 44.6, 52.7 and 52.9 fantasy points in three of his last five games. Other top tier options to consider includes James Harden and DeMar DeRozan.
Mid Tier Fantasy Options we like include Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Devin Booker and Will Barton (Watch Injury News)
Fantasy Sleeper option we like along with Henderson is Tomas Satoransky.

NBA FanDuel Small Forward Options
Kevin Durant, Golden State Warriors: We expect tonight’s Warriors/Raptors contest to be one of the more exciting contests with a ton of scoring. This lands Durant as one of the top fantasy scorers at the small forward position. While we like LeBron James on most nights we could see him getting some rest tonight after a heavy workload over the last few nights.
Aaron Gordon, Orlando Magic: We are still sitting back waiting to see Gordon take his game to the next level. Tonight he will look to reward us against a New Orleans Pelicans that ranks second in the NBA in fantasy points allowed to opposing small forwards.
Mid Tier Fantasy Options we like include Marcus Morris and Danilo Gallinari.
Fantasy Sleeper option we like is Andre Roberson.
NBA FanDuel Power Forward Options
Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans: While we would love to be able to stack Westbrook, Durant, the Greek Freek and Davis all in the same lineup. Unfrotuantly that won’t happen tonight unless you load up on fantasy sleepers to fill the remainder of your lineup. Now that being said Davis has to be one of your options to consider when building your fantasy lineup as he can post a 70 plus fantasy performance against nearly any team in the NBA on any night.
Patrick Patterson, Toronto Raptors: One trends to continue to see is that opposing big man taking on the Warriors continue to put together good fantasy performances. Tonight Patterson will get a shot to continue that trend while providing us with a solid salary cap savings.
Mid Tier Fantasy Options we like include Serge Ibaka and Thaddeus Young.
Fantasy Sleeper Option we like is Mike Muscala.
NBA FanDuel Center Options
DeAndre Jordan, Los Angeles Clippers: Jordan has been up and down for most of the season including posting at least 24 fantasy points in four straight games this includes a 45.7 fantasy point performance as well as a 33.3 game. Along with Jordan DeMarcus Cousins is another top tier fantasy option to consider to build around but will need to make some additional moves at other positions.
Mid Tier Fantasy Options we like include Joel Embiid (Monitor Status Lineup) and Marcin Gortat.
Fantasy Sleeper Option we like is Bismack Biyombo.
