Welcome to our weekly forecast of weekend fantasy basketball! Every Friday, check here for some insight into the best FanDuel plays for the weekend.
FanDuel is a great way to play fantasy basketball. It's new everyday, and so much fun! You get to pick your own 9-player lineup and get the chance to win some money! I've been playing all week against strangers and my friends.
But for now, here' some great insights to who to play this weekend.
Carmelo Anthony vs the Cavaliers
The Knicks are going to need Melo to have a big game for them to stay close with Cleveland. I see Melo scoring close the 30 and probably getting a double-double. He's a solid choice.
George Hill vs the T-Wolves
I like Hill at the $6,500 price for this matchup. Rubio isn't a defensive player and Hill has been playing very well. Good value play here.
Jahlil Okafor vs the Thunder
He's been putting up insane numbers scoring wise for a rookie. With a possible high scoring game slated against the Thunder, could be a great play at $6,700. Lots of chances for rebounds and scores.
Stephen Curry vs the Nets
Stop. OK. He's available, play him. He's unstoppable right now and is putting up well worth the max salary it costs to get him. He's scoring 50+ points for you nearly guaranteed.
Eric Bledsoe vs the Nuggets
Denver is going to be on a back-to-back and I think Bledsoe will have a stellar game against a young Nugget back court.
Kevin Love vs the Bucks
They may be long, but they are thin. Love should have a great rebounding game, and hit plenty of outside shots against Milwaukee.
Andre Drummond vs the Lakers
Count him in for another 20-20 game probably. Hassan Whiteside nearly did it if he had played the fourth quarter against Roy Hibbert and the Lakers thin front line.
Paul Millsap vs the Jazz
This may seem like an off choice because the Jazz have a great defense, but Millsap will try and bring Favors out of the lane and I think he's going to exploit that matchup from the perimeter.
Damian Lillard vs the Hornets
Who's going to stop him? Kemba Walker? No, Lillard will have a big game here and is worth the big bucks.
I hope that helps you pick your team! Choose wisely, have fun and join us on FanDuel!
Remember, all this is my opinions and not that of Hot Hot Hoops, SB Nation or FanDuel. FD has given me some cash to start playing.
