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. Top heavy plays, medium plays and lowkey plays right here for you!
Russell Westbrook vs the Knicks
Pay for him, no matter how much it cost. He's on a rampage. In New York, and they have no one who can stop him. He will score 50+ FanDuel points for you.
Al Jefferson vs the Sixers
Favorable matchup vs a rookie and has scored in double figures three straight games. A solid play for center on a crowded night.
Jamal Crawford vs Portland
Blazers are giving up a lot of points and high scoring games. On a back-to-back, the Clippers will rely more on the bench and Crawford should have a favorable matchup and a low cost around $4,400.
Paul George vs the Bucks
He's been going off lately and the Bucks won't stop him. They will offer length but George is in a great groove with the Bucks the last stop on a road trip.
Al Horford vs Cleveland
He will stretch the floor against any paint protecting big the Cavs put out there. Atlanta will need him to have a big night.
Tyler Johnson vs the Sixers
I'm looking for TJ to come through here. This is the type of game he could see a lot of minutes and rack up some stats as someone who doesn't cost very much.
Stephen Curry vs the Nuggets
Seriously, he will light them up, and my only concern is that he won't play the 4th quarter. Dude is on a roll and you should ride him costly in your lineup here.
Dirk Nowitzki vs the Thunder
High scoring game ahead, and Dirk should be the clear go-to-guy for the Mavs to try and keep pace against the Thunder. A good buy for about $6,700.
Joe Johnson vs the Celtics
At home, Joe should be able to have a strong game here and he doesn't cost much. Many people don't pick him, so give him a shot here.
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.
