Tonight’s NBA Schedule delivers an action packed ten game slate to help the Daily Fantasy Basketball Rankings. At the top of that list sits eight NBA fantasy options that are averaging over four fantasy points a game. Of that group only Chris Paul and Damian Lillard look to miss their contests tonight after missing games leading up to their contests tonight.
That being said the top of that list features some real daily fantasy basketball threats including Anthony Davis who has posted four straight 50 plus fantasy performances. While Davis sits atop the NBA Daily Fantasy Basketball Rankings at the power forward position a few of the other top options tonight include John Wall, Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins.
Along with the top options tonight we can all find some real value across the board to help offset some of the high salaries. This includes a player like Rajon Rondo who continues to have an up and down season while lowering his total usage in GPP Formats over the past couple nights. That being said Rondo has a very favorable matchup much like his Chicago Bulls teammates against a very bad Brooklyn Nets team.
In all six different NBA Games tonight have Over/Under totals over 212 points while 19 of the 20 teams tonight have totals projected over 100 points. Before we get to our top Daily Fantasy Basketball Ranking options for tonight here is a quick look at the Top 3 NBA Over/Under Lines for Wednesday December 28th, 2016.
With all that said here is our top FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Options for Wednesday December 28th, 2016.
Point Guards – Kyle Lowry & Rajon Rondo
Lowry joins John Wall as the top two options at the point guard position tonight with both Chris Paul and Damin Lillard expected to miss their respective contests. Now for us Lowry will be leaned on heavy as well as DeMar DeRozan to help keep the score close tonight with their matchup against the Warriors. Rondo on the other hand sit in the middle of the pack at the point guard position but is an option we can’t look past tonight based on facing a Nets team that ranks first among teams in action tonight in fantasy points allowed to opposing point guards.
Top Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Stephen Curry
Mid Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Dennis Schroder
Fantasy Sleeper Option We Like: Michael Carter-Williams
Shooting Guards – C.J. McCollum & Nicolas Batum
The shooting guard position tonight is filled with options to build both GPP and Cash lineups around tonight. At the top sits Giannis Antetokounmpo and DeMar DeRozan while the midtier to lower range options add a ton of value. For us our two top options we like tonight are McCollum and Batum. McCollum will be the key threat to the Portland Trailblazers lineup with Lillard out (posted 41.1 fantasy points in his last game). Batum on the other hand has been hot posting over 40 fantasy points in three straight games.
Top Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Giannis Antetokounmpo
Mid Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Zach LaVine & Will Barton
Fantasy Sleeper Option We Like: Jodie Meeks

Small Forwards – Jimmy Butler & Marcus Morris
An easy option tonight is Kevin Durant who continues to be a fantasy threat night in and night out. That being said we like Butler’s value tonight against a Nets team that enters tonight allowing the most fantasy points in the league to opposing small forwards. Morris while more of a sleeper option provides some salary cap space while providing as a real fantasy threat against a Milwuakee Bucks team that has had their hands full with opposing small forwards.
Top Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Kevin Durant
Mid Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Andrew Wiggins & Wilson Chandler
Fantasy Sleeper Option We Like: Aaron Gordon
Power Forwards – Antony Davis & Nikola Mirotic
The difficult decision tonight despite the solid mid-tier and fantasy sleeper options is what top tier options will we decide to pass on. For us Davis is one of those options we love but also hate at the same time based on his very heavy salary cap tag. In order to go with Davis you will need to look to Mirotic as a cheaper option at the power forward position will also need to consider at least two of the other fantasy sleepers at the other positions above. Meanwhle Mirotic has been inconsistent at times this season but is riding three straight games with at least 27 fantasy points.
Top Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Anthony Davis
Mid Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Thaddeus Young
Fantasy Sleeper Option We Like: Brandon Bass/Marreese Speights
Center Option – Dwight Howard
After missing some time Howard responded on Monday night with a strong 40.4 fantatsy performance. We expect him to continue that success tonight against a New York Knicks team that is allowing the second most fantasy points to opposing centers entering tonight’s contest.
Top Tier Fantasy Option We Like: DeMarcus Cousins & Karl-Anthony Towns
Mid Tier Fantasy Option We Like: Nikola Vucevic & Myles Turner
Fantasy Sleeper Option We Like: Robin Lopez
