Welcome back Fanduelers! I wasn’t around yesterday, but Saturday and Friday went fairly well, and if you read my writeup for Saturday you were on guys like George Hill, Robert Covington, and James Johnson. 3/5 isn’t bad! Today we’ll be focusing on Steph Curry in an amazing game environment, and a few other pivots and GPP options on this very interesting 11 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, rather than maximize value. I’m also going to be limiting the number of “Other options” I mention to guys that only I personally would want to roster in tournaments.

Steph Curry | Daily NBA Fanduel GPP Plays for 2/13/17
Steph Curry – Golden State Warriors ($9,400) @ Denver Nuggets
The good: Steph Curry has games of over 50 FPs in 4 of his last 6. The bad: Steph Curry’s other two games were under 30 FPs. Fortunately, one was a blowout against Chicago, and the other was a tough road game against Memphis. The rest of the news I have is all good, though, as we know Denver is about as soft of a matchup as it gets. They currently rank dead last in defensive efficiency on the season, and this game boasts one of the highest totals I’ve seen this season at 239. The spread is 11.5 points, which isn’t terrible, and given the game is in Denver there’s a chance the undermanned (Without Faried and Gallinari) Nuggets can keep it close. We also have two teams that rank top 5 in the NBA in pace, and the Nuggets rank 2nd worst on the season in terms of FPPG allowed to the point guard position. If this game does remain close you have to think Steph Curry has a shot for a 60+ FP game. I genuinely think some people will hesitate to take Steph Curry in this spot due to the possible blowout and some poor games recently, but that’s clearly a mistake in tournaments given the ceiling he has here. All systems go on Steph Curry.
Other options: Westbrook, John Wall, Damian Lillard, Kemba Walker, Jeff Teague, George Hill, Goran Dragic, TJ McConnell, Eric Bledsoe, Tyler Johnson, Jameer Nelson, Jrue Holiday
