The East Coast of the United States embraces for their first winter storm but that won’t slow any of us down from trying to heat up on FanDuel tonight. After failing to get a lineup out yesterday we are looking to bounce back tonight with a nice slate of NBA games to cash in on.
In all the NBA features a nine game slate that features the top two fantasy point guards in the NBA. Stephen Curry will look to lead his Golden State Warriors over the Indiana Pacers while Russell Westbrook will lead his Oklahoma City Thunder in to Dallas to take on the Mavericks.
While both of those games are key options to build from one game we have turned our attention to for a few FanDuel Bargains is the game featuring the Miami Heat taking on the Raptors in Toronto. For us we love both Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan for the Raptors.
On the other side for the Heat we can look at not only Chris Bosh but a few of their cheaper options. Those options will play a key role tonight as the team has officially announced that Hassan Whiteside, Dwyane Wade, Goran Dragic and Luol Deng will all miss tonight’s game.
That announcement allowed us to turn our attention to this game making us start building our roster from this game.
Here is our NBA FanDuel lineup for Friday January 22nd, 2016.
PG – Kyle Lowry ($9,000): We have elected to go with both point guards in tonight’s Heat/Raptors matchup. That being said, Lowry will look to bounce back after only finishing with 28 fantasy points in the teams last game.
PG – Tyler Johnson ($4,300): The Heat will look to Johnson to step up in the absence of a few of their big stars tonight. Another option could become Ben Udrih for a few dollars cheaper if he does play tonight.
SG – DeMar DeRozan ($8,400): DeRozan is a great fantasy option tonight after posting at least 45 fantasy points in back to back games. Overall the Raptors shooting guard has posted at least 32 fantasy points in five straight games as well as seven of his last ten.
SG – Klay Thompson ($7,000): Any night the Warriors take the floor we could go with at least one member of the splash brothers. Tonight we have elected to go cheaper with Thompson to allow us to use Kevin Durant. Thompson has turned in at least two 30 plus fantasy points in two of the teams last three games.
SF – Kevin Durant ($10,100): Since missing a game back on January 4th, Durant has yielded at least 36 fantasy points in nine straight games. That includes at three 40 plus performances as well as two fifty plus performances.
SF – C.J. Miles ($4,500): Miles will be an interesting case tonight for the Indiana Pacers tonight against the Warriors. The Pacers small forward is a hit or miss but he should have an opportunity in a game that should be a faster pace opening up a bunch of scoring opportunities.
PF – Chris Bosh ($7,600): While bosh has been a disappointment at times for the price but tonight he should be a solid option without the teams remaining stars in the lineup. Bosh has posted at least at least 31 fantasy points in seven of his last ten games. One sleeper fantasy option is to consider using Amar’e Stoudemire at the power forward position as well.
PF – Marvin Williams ($4,800): Looking for a cheaper play at the power forward position landed us with Wiliams. While we would love to see a 30 plus performance from Williams but a 25 point night will work for us tonight.
C – Enes Kanter ($4,600): We have looked at a few options tonight including going with an expensive tonight. In the end we needed to save a few dollars to use on a few additional top options. In the end Kanter is a solid option to give us 20-30 fantasy points tonight against the Mavericks.
