Here's my picks for you this weekend as you play. Top heavy plays, medium plays and low-key plays right here for you! Remember, just my take, do what you like!
HIGH - Russell Westbrook vs the Pacers
Of all the top players, he think he is primed to have the best matchup and game. The Pacers are up for playing a fast-paced game and outside of George Hill, Indy has no player close to getting in Russell's way.
MID - Paul Millsap vs the Heat
No Chris Bosh, no Hassan Whiteside means not a lot of deterrence for Paul to score and do as he pleases. A really solid play here.
LOW - Matt Barnes vs the Timberwolves
With the recent trades, he should be looked at to do a little more, at least for tonight.
HIGH - Stephen Curry vs the Clippers
It's just too hard not to choose him. This should be a high scoring game and maybe some back and forth between him and Chris Paul.
MID - Hassan Whiteside vs the Wizards
A bit odd, but the Wizards will be playing for the third straight night. Whiteside will be rested and should be hungry. A good matchup.
LOW - J.J. Redick vs the Warriors
There will be a lot of shots going up and for the value of Redick, he will be a solid choice here.
HIGH - Paul George vs the Magic
Orlando just got rid of Tobias Harris, a good defender and don't have much to stop PG.
MID - Derrick Rose vs the Lakers
Without Jimmy Butler, more scoring is needed from Rose and this is a prime time game on TV with Kobe's last game in Chicago. He should try to do well.
LOW - J.R. Smith vs the Thunder
Someone is going to get the collapsing Thunder defense and it should be Smith. This isn't a guarantee but I think he decent game from Smith should be coming.
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.
