NBA Advice for Thursday, January 5

I haven’t written an article in quite some time and I plan on getting back into it now that the Holiday’s are over with. Last night was a rough night on fanduel. I was very confident with my lineup going into the slate and ultimately fell short of cash while putting up 314 FD points. That’s life in DFS though. Anyways, I’m not going to break any players down today but I will leave guys I like tonight. Any questions I am still on twitter, @MonstarsDFS.

Point Guard

Stud: Russell Westbrook @ HOU $12500

This is pretty obvious but just incase you are completely clueless I have to list him. Another high priced guy I really like tonight if you fade Russ is Eric Bledsoe @ Dallas tonight.

Mid-tier: Reggie Jackson vs CHA $6400

He looks fully healthy and shouldn’t have much problems hitting his value.

Value play: Shelvin Mack @ TOR $3800

George Hill is ruled out and Dante Exum is a GTD. Even if Exum plays, he will likely be on a minutes restriction.

Shooting Guard

Stud: James Harden vs OKC $12000

I am building around the beard tonight in cash. Fire this boy up with confidence.

Mid-tier: Victor Oladipo @ HOU $5900

Oladipo is still way too cheap and gets an extremely favorable matchup tonight in a game that is expected to be a shoot out.

Value play: Allen Crabbe $3800

If Lillard sits again, Crabbe should continue to see 30+ minutes tonight, making him a solid play for only $3800.

Small Forward

Stud: Kawhi Leonard @ DEN $8500, Paul George vs BKN $7900

Both have excellent match ups tonight against poor defensive teams.

Mid-tier: Trevor Ariza vs OKC $5900

I will be targeting this game tonight, especially in cash.

Value play: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist @ DET $4600

MKG has been seeing 30+ mpg in 8 straight games and should be able to hit value if he continues to see minutes like this.

Power Forward

Stud: Anthony Davis vs ATL $11,100

I am a fan of AD tonight. I will be trying to get a beard/brow combo in my cash lineup tonight.

Mid-tier: Nikola Jokic vs SA $7100

It should be interesting to see his % owned since they’re playing the Spurs, but he’s been balling and remains cash viable.

Value play: Derrick Favors @ TOR $4500

Favors burned me against BKN putting up a pathetic 9.6 FD points but for this price tag I will roll with the upside again tonight.


Stud: Dwight Howard @ NO $7700

Center doesn’t look too appealing tonight, I probably won’t pay up at the position tonight in cash. However, Howard could see extra run tonight trying to protect the rim against AD.

Mid-tier: Steven Adams @HOU $5600

More from this game, plus Adam’s has been on a tear recently.

Value play: Montrezl Harrell $4700

Harrell has great upside at this price tag, especially since he is expected to play 30+ minutes again tonight.

Hopefully this article helps you build your lineup tonight and as always, Good Luck tonight!
