NBA FanDuel DFS Review: There are nine games for Tuesday’s NBA slate starting at 7 pm EST. The slate starts off with the Atlanta Hawks at the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Detroit Pistons at the Orlando Magic, the Boston Celtics at the Dallas Mavericks, the Sacramento Kings at the Brooklyn Nets, the Golden State Warriors at the New York Knicks, the Philadephia 76ers at the Toronto Raptors, the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Milwaukee Bucks, the Portland Trailblazers at the Denver Nuggets, and the night comes to a close with the Washington Wizards vs the Los Angeles Clippers.
Jamal Murray $8,300
His usage rate with Nikola Jokic are all up because Paul Millsap, Gary Harris, PJ Dozier, and JaMychal Green are out. His price is very undervalued with his production going up with key players out.
Saben Lee $5000
This is a value play because it really depends on how well Dennis Smith Jr. plays tonight against the Orlando Magic. If Smith Jr. plays like last game, expect Lee to get at least 25+ minutes.
James Harden $11,000
With Kevin Durant being out, the offense has been mainly through Kyrie Irving and James Harden. The Sacramento Kings like to play a fast pace game. It is not a bad idea to expect 55+ FP with Jeff Green also being questionable.
Collin Sexton $6,900
Sexton is going to have to play massive minutes to carry the team on the offensive end. In the midst of a 10- game losing streak, Sexton has dropped 20 or more points in the last five contests.
Kris Middleton $7,200
He bounced back last game against a fast-paced Sacramento Kings team. Kawhi Leonard is too pricey at this position but if you are choosing between him or Paul George, definitely pay up a little more for Leonard. The Timberwolves also place a fast-paced game so Middleton is a cheap at this position/
RJ Barrett $5,500
The minutes have been hard to predict for Barrett but looked great against the Minnesota Timberwolves as he got 21 points in 34 minutes. He played well against Golden State in their last meeting.
Giannis Anteokounmpo $11,300
The Minnesota Timberwolves have struggled on defense against opposing power forwards. The Timberwolves have a high-paced offense. Hopefully, this game does not turn into a blowout. He can put up 60+ FP.
John Collins 6,800
The Cavs are 29th in OPK, with the Cavs having one good big man to stop Clint Capela and John Collins on the defensive end. Collins struggled against the Boston Celtics which was the worst game for him this season. Look for him to have a similar output as to what he did against the Denver Nuggets.
Nikola Vucevic $9,900
Vucevic has been one of the bright spots for this team that has dealt with so many injuries this season. He has averaged 30 or more points these last two games. The big man has 22 double-doubles this season. The Magic also played the Pistons a couple of days ago, so if it’s not broken, there is no reason to fix anything.
Detroit has struggled this season as they allowed a lot of fantasy points to opposing big men.
Jarret Allen $7,600/Dwight Powell $3,500
With Kevin Love being on the injured list for a while and the Cavaliers deciding not to use Andre Drummond, Allen has seen a huge increase in minutes. He has averaged 31.58 fantasy points but exceeded expectations these last three games notching 39.3, 43, and 55.4 FP. He has records double-double in five of his last six games.
If Kristaps Porzingis and Maxi Kieber are both out. This could be a good spot to play Powell.
