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!
HIGH - Stephen Curry vs the Suns
A pretty much dream matchup. This will be a high paced game, lots of scoring and Steph is on a roll. He will cost a lot and many will have him, but he will score plenty for you.
MID - Klay Thompson vs the Suns
I sound like a broken record, but lots of shots and lots of available points. At $6,300 he's a good grab.
LOW - Robin Lopez vs the Heat
He played very well against Miami earlier this week, and now at home he could have slightly higher production. At around $4,400 he could be a good value play here.
HIGH - John Wall vs the Raptors
Has a considerable size advantage, at home and will be motivated. Washington is on a back-to-back so beware but I think Wall will have a great night.
MID - Gordon Hayward vs the Pelicans
I don't think New Orleans has a guy that will key in on Hayward the way he deserves to stop him. He won't get many points at the rim, but I think he will have a solid production.
LOW - J.J. Hickson vs the Mavericks
Very much a hustle player who could get some bonus points from being in the right place. He's not a sure bet, but I am taking a risk waiver here thinking he will have a good night.
HIGH - Paul George vs the Lakers
He's been smoking hot, and playing in L.A. and against his former pal Roy Hibbert, I like it. I think George will have near triple double numbers in this one.
MID - Brandon Knight vs Raptors
A great play here. Although on the road, Knight has been giving out solid numbers and worth more than what he is listed at. Get him in your lineup.
LOW - Jamal Crawford vs the Timberwolves
Continually listed lower than his potential output, but Crawford could see a lot of time here. I think he's a really great value play for a small choice of options.
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.
