Fanduel GPP Plays 1/6/2018
Darren Collison Indiana Pacers ($6,100): Here is a fantasy-point log of Collison’s last six games: 30.5, 6.2, 32.1, 44.1, 8.0, 28.4. If that doesn’t scream GPP play I don’t know what will. The 44.1 fantasy points came against the Chicago Bulls on December 29th. I know Victor Oladipo has a strong chance to play tonight, lowering the ownership of Collison against the Bulls, who are 24th in defensive efficiency against point guards.
De’Aaron Fox, Sacramento Kings ($4,800): Frank Mason is out and George Hill is away from the team, Fox will play a ton of minutes tonight. The rookie returned from a six-game absence to play 32 minutes and record 17 points, three rebounds, and four assists (26.6 FP’s) Tuesday night. The cheap price tag’s ideal when he faces the Nuggets, who rank 28th in DVP against PG’s.
Avery Bradley, Detroit Pistons ($5,70): Coach Van Gundy had to rip into his players after the beating they took against Philadelphia last night. Bradley looked horrible with 3.5 fantasy points in 21 minutes against a bottom five team against SG’s. The poor showing last night will bring ownership down on Bradley against the Houston Rockets, who rank 26th in defensive efficiency against SG’s. I expect him to rebound with a better showing tonight.
Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota Timberwolves ($5,700): You look at Wiggins’ game log and see his consistency of 21-28 FP’s recently looks like he is a cash game play. I’m looking at the 40+ FP upside he has against teams who struggle to defend the wing. Wiggins scored 37 FPs against Phoenix, 46.1 vs. New Orleans, and 46.8 against the Lakers. He faces New Orleans this evening, who rank 26th in DVP while E’Twaun Moore ranks 29th in DRPM.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks ($11,000): Small forward is a brutal position for Fanduel GPP plays this evening. I expect LeBron to have higher ownership against the Magic than ABC against the Wizards, leading me to target ABC for GPP’s on this slate. We all know Giannis is matchup proof and a contest against the Wizards, whom he averaged 26.35 points, 9.65 rebounds, and 5.35 assists the last four games against, looks outstanding.
Gerald Green, Houston Rockets ($5,700): Green’s scored 36.2 and 35.6 fantasy points the last two games; ownership is going to be high on him this evening. I mentioned above how bad the SF position is tonight, grabbing Green at this price you can still get contrarian plays at other positions. I like Green against a Pistons team that allows 105.8 points per game on zero days rest this season.
Zach Randolph, Sacramento Kings ($5,500): “Z-BO” faces the Denver Nuggets for the third time this season tonight. In the first two games, he averaged 28.25 FPs per game in 22.5 minutes per game. Since the Kings haven’t played since Tuesday, Randolph should get a few extra minutes and has the upside to hit 6x his value in this contest.
Taj Gibson, Minnesota Timberwolves ($5,800): The recent play of Trey Lyles, Lauri Markkanen and the matchup for Aaron Gordon, DFS players could overlook Gibson. The veteran looks for his third double-double against the Pelicans when they square off tonight. Gibson averaged 10.5 points, 11 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 36 minutes per game against New Orleans in two meetings. The opportunity for 30+ fantasy points with low ownership is there tonight.
Clint Capela, Houston Rockets ($7,400): Even though Capela rarely plays 30+ minutes, he still has 40-fantasy point upside. Capela faced off against Andre Drummond once last season, finishing with 15 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and two blocks. I expect a double-double from him this evening against a Pistons team that ranks 21st in defensive efficiency against opposing frontcourts.
Bismack Biyombo, Orlando Magic ($6,200): After three straight double-double’s Bismack’s price jumped to $6,700 last game and he laid an egg in a lopsided loss to the Houston Rockets. Now his priced dropped down and it’s time to jump on the ship against the Cavaliers struggling defense. Over the last ten games, Cleveland ranks 25th in defensive efficiency against opposing frontcourts. The price is ideal on Bismack so you can spend elsewhere tonight.
