Welcome to our first weekly forecast of fantasy basketball for the weekend. 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!
But for now, here' some great insights to who to play this weekend.
Anthony Davis vs the Pelicans
Nobody tall enough of quick enough to try and even contain him. He's expensive, but I think he will be worth it.
Matthew Delavedova vs the Sixers
With Kyrie out, a likely blowout to follow, Dela is good play. He played the Sixers a few days ago and played really well. He's a cheap option for point guard.
Hassan Whiteside vs the Pacers
Yes, your boy. The Pacers are thin up front and Hassan has been doing his thing. He should be a great play even at $8k tonight.
Victor Oladipo vs the Sixers
Philly is on a back-to-back and Oladpio has the matchup advantage here. He should fill the box score across and play better than his value.
Jimmy Butler vs the T-Wolves
You saw what Dwyane Wade did to them, Butler may hurt them more. Wolves are inexperienced wing defenders and Butler will be worth the value.
Kyle Lowry vs the Heat
You know the Dragic struggles with small point guards. Well, Lowry will probably have himself a game. It hurts, but this is a good play.
Kevin Durant vs the Suns
Talk about a high scoring game ahead of them. No one can stop Durant and a fast paced game will prove wonders for his fantasy score. He will be expensive so plan around that, but he should be scoring a lot.
George Hill vs the Cavaliers
May seem like an odd pick, but for a medium value point guard, Hill has a size, experience, and skill advantage here. On the road, he will have to play more to help stay with Cavs, and should get plenty of line.
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.
