FRIDAY (Christmas Day)
HIGH - Stephen Curry vs the Cavaliers
At home, against a good team which means he won't sit the fourth quarter...that means it is a good game to play Steph. Biggest game of the day will make for a monster game.
MID - LaMarcus Aldridge vs the Rockets
At about $7,300 this is a great value as LA will be the favorite against any matchup the Rockets put on him. I expect a double double from him and a great showing.
LOW - Beno Udrih vs the Pelicans
This seems like an odd choice but the Pelicans are giving up tons of fantasy points to point guards. Udrih is a good play IF Tyler Johnson is still out. Dragic isn't a sure bet either so could be even greater value at $3,700.
HIGH - Damian Lillard vs the Cavaliers
Cleveland on a back-to-back on the west coast should be a good shot for him. With extra rest, and a high scoring game planned, Lillard should value over 40 fantasy points.
MID - Jared Sullinger vs the Pistons
Draggin Andre Drummond out of the paint is going to get him some points and assists. Even though he will be undersized I think he's going to score value points for you.
LOW - Kevin Garnett vs the Pacers
Pacers are undersized at PF and Garnett will be very cheap. This should be a close game in Minnesota so Garnett should see some normal time, but not a lot. For as cheap as he is, he may get you 30 fantasy points if his team takes advantage of small Pacers.
HIGH - DeMarcus Cousins vs the Blazers
Blazers give up a lot of fantasy points to centers and Cousins is a great scoring center. He should have a day against the big, but slower Blazers front court.
MID - Kristaps Porzingis vs the Celtics
I like his length against Boston and I like that the Celtics are on a back-to-back. Porzingis should be a good play against the smaller C's where he can get easy baskets.
LOW - Brandon Bass vs the Grizzlies
He is getting time due to injuries and we know he can score off jumpers. He could stretch Memphis' defense and get some baskets. He's cheap, and risky but could help you afford others on a night with only 4 games.
I hope that helps you pick your team! Choose wisely, have fun and join us on FanDuel!
