Welcome back Fanduel friends! Yesterday’s slate was pretty terrible, and made even worse with the late scratch of Derrick Rose. We can blame the beat writers for that one. Today we will be focusing on Goran Dragic and a few others GPP plays and pivots in our Daily Fanduel NBA GPP lineups on this much more palatable 9 game slate. What I’m trying to do here for the most part is leverage ownership, while targeting players with upside to get you over 6x value. Sometimes, targeting guys that are more chalky is necessary in tournaments, especially on a site like Fanduel where you need to “win” the position.
If you join our FTA+ program and find us in chat in the forums, we will be happy to keep you updated leading up to tip off! Understanding which players benefit the most from others being out is critical to your NBA DFS success, and we help with that on a nightly basis. Don’t forget to check out our DFS NBA cheatsheet while you are here, we are still offering FREE 3 day trials, cancel anytime.
Goran Dragic | Daily NBA Fanduel GPP Plays for 1/10/17
Goran Dragic – Miami Heat ($6,900)
I definitely love Wall tonight too, but Goran Dragic is very intriguing to me in tournaments for a few reasons. First, we know the Warriors can be susceptible to point guards, however still boast a decent DvP versus the position. Really, the last three decent point guards they’ve faced (Conley, Lowry and McCollum) all had very good games against them, and all were in Golden State. The spread on this game might be a bit daunting, but Whiteside should play, which can only help the Heat keep this game close. The Heat will no doubt need 37+ minutes from their star point guard, Goran Dragic (especially with Josh Richardson out), to keep them in it, and with the Warriors consistently showing some weakness to top flight point guards, I expect at least the opportunity for a big game from him. Goran Dragic also generally plays better in higher paced games as his relentless attacking of the rim is favored in transition, and his top 25 usage rate should certainly help too.
Other options: John Wall, Isaiah Thomas, Damian Lillard, Steph Curry, Kyle Lowry, Reggie Jackson, Kemba Walker, D’Angelo Russell, Dennis Schroder, Tyler Johnson, Marcus Smart, MCW, Malcolm Brogdon, Jordan Clarkson, Spencer Dinwiddie
