Point Guard

Russell Westbrook, @ PHO FD $13,500 DK $14,000

The Thunder will be playing with a ton of energy and purpose on Friday night as they work to help Russell Westbrook make the NBA record books. OKC has won three in a row on the road, and they’ve gone 5-1 in their last six road games. Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns have been one of the worst teams in the league this season. The Suns have lost 13 consecutive games, and they haven’t won a game in Phoenix in over a month. The Phoenix Suns have given up an average of 62.2 FD points per outing to opposing point guards in the last five games.

 

Kyrie Irving, vs. ATL FD $8,500 DK $7,700

The Cavaliers enter this contest 4th in the league in scoring with 110.5 points per game. Cleveland is 14th in rebounding with 43.7 caroms a night while the team stands 13th with 22.7 assists per contest. The Cavaliers are below average defensively, ranking 20th in scoring defense by allowing 106.7 points per game. Kyrie Irving is currently second on the team with 25 points plus 5.8 assists per game. The Atlanta Hawks have given up an average of 52.9 FD points per outing to opposing point guards in the last five games.

 

Jrue Holiday, @ DEN FD $7,500 DK $7,500

The Denver Nuggets will host the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night. The Nuggets are teetering on the edge of elimination in the Western Conference. Denver is currently 9th in the West, and they’re a full game behind the Portland Trail Blazers for the 8th and final seed in the playoffs. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans were eliminated from the playoff race when they lost to the Nuggets earlier in the week, so they’ll simply try to avenge that loss by playing spoiler in this one. The Denver Nuggets have given up an average of 54.7 FD points per outing to opposing point guards in the last five games.

 

Also consider: Patrick BeverleyIsh Smith.

 

 

Shooting Guard

Devin Booker, vs. OKC FD $8,100 DK $8,000

For a team that has lost 13 straight, Devin Booker is sure getting a lot of national attention.  Most of that has to do with the 70 points he dropped on the Boston Celtics a few games back, but he’s also been a very good player all year long for a team that is not very good.  He’s scored at least 23 points in every game since the 70 point game. His average is up to 22 points on the year, and he’s also averaging more than three rebounds and three assists per game.  He’s 83% from the line, and although he’s not a great outside shooter just yet, he still shoots 36% from beyond the arc.  He may well be making Eric Bledsoe tradable this off season. The Oklahoma City Thunder have allowed an average of 37.8 FD points per contest to opposing shooting guards in the last ten games.

 

Victor Oladipo, @ PHO FD $5,800 DK $5,900

Oladipo is averaging 2.4 threes per game (on 46.7 percent) over the last 13 contests, and this has been his best outside shooting display since he made 2.5 per game (on 44.2 percent) in November. The Phoenix Suns have allowed an average of 45.7 FD points per contest to opposing shooting guards in the last five games. OKC has won three in a row on the road, and they’ve gone 5-1 in their last six road games. Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns have been one of the worst teams in the league this season. The Suns have lost 13 consecutive games, and they haven’t won a game in Phoenix in over a month. They have lost by an average of 9.8 points per game during their losing streak.

 

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, @ HOU FD $4,300 DK $5,000

Detroit is in danger of being eliminated from playoff and with only four games to play. Coach Stan Van Gundy figures to keep handing Caldwell-Pope heavy minutes until the Pistons are officially eliminated from the playoffs, so expect him to see a full workload Friday against the Rockets. The Houston Rockets Spurs have allowed an average of 46.3 FD points per contest to opposing shooting guards in the last five games.

Also consider: Gary Harris, Jordan CrawfordBuddy Hield

 

 

Small Forward

LeBron James, vs. ATL FD $10,900 DK $10,600

The Cavaliers enter this contest 4th in the league in scoring with 110.5 points per game. Cleveland is 14th in rebounding with 43.7 caroms a night while the team stands 13th with 22.7 assists per contest. The Cavaliers are below average defensively, ranking 20th in scoring defense by allowing 106.7 points per game. LeBron James averages a team high 26.3 points while collecting 8.5 boards and dishing 8.7 assists per game. The Atlanta Hawks have given up an average of 41.9 FD points per outing to opposing small forwards in the last five games. Cleveland has won four straight but needs to stay hot in order to maintain their hold on the top spot in the East. With Atlanta’s inconsistency coupled with two games in as many days, look for the Cavaliers to make it five straight wins.

 

Danilo Gallinari, vs. NO FD $6,700 DK $6,300

The Denver Nuggets have a lot riding on this game, they will be pressing hard in the final week. Gallinari needs to keep producing at a high level, and his recent streak makes him an excellent DFS target Friday against the Pelicans. The Pels felt the sting of elimination the last time these two teams played . DeMarcus Cousins is listed as questionable. The New Orleans Pelicans have given up an average of 51.4 FD points per outing to opposing small forwards in the last five games.

 

Joe Ingles, vs. MIN FD $4,200 DK $4,800

Due to various injuries on the Jazz, including Derrick Favors (knee), Ingles has seen an expanded role within the Jazz rotation since March — averaging 8.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.1 steals across 29.6 minutes per game. The Clippers and Jazz are tied at 48-30 and whoever plays the best over the last four games will get home court advantage which could prove pivotal.  The Jazz have been playing well lately, having won four of five with the lone loss a 109-103 loss at San Antonio.  No reason to hang your head over a loss like that. The Minnesota Timberwolves have given up an average of 49.1 FD points per outing to opposing shooting guards in the last five games.

Also consider: Trevor Ariza, Wilson Chandler.

 

 

Power Forward

Julius Randle, vs. SAC FD $6,400 DK $7,300

He had two double-double in his the last four games. Randle’s game is still developing but he has shown tremendous improvement in his offensive efficiency, shooting a career-high 48.0 percent this season from the field. The Sacramento Kings have given up an average of 49.9 FD points per contest to opposing centers in the last five games.

 

David Lee, @ DAL FD $4,000 DK $4,800

San Antonio is playing out the regular season and Gregg Popovich will be cautious with his stars and his older veterans to keep them in good shape for the postseason. Dallas doesn’t have much in the way of offensive attack this season as we’ve seen. San Antonio is going to rest guys but they should have enough depth to pick up the win in this contest. The Dallas Mavericks have given up an average of 52.9 FD points per contest to opposing power forwards in the last five games.

 

Willie Cauley-Stein, @ LAL FD $6,300 DK $6,700

The 23-year-old as a cornerstone for the future and intends to give him all the playing time he can handle. Cauley-Stein has rewarded the Kings with three consecutive double-doubles, and he’s generally done well to steer clear of the foul trouble that often plagues young big men. The Los Angeles Lakers have given up an average of 51.6 FD points per contest to opposing centers this season.

Also consider: Larry Nance, Tobias HarrisThomas RobinsonSkal Labissiere.

Dewayne Dedmon, @ DAL FD $3,500 DK $3,000

San Antonio is playing out the regular season and Gregg Popovich will be cautious with his stars and his older veterans to keep them in good shape for the postseason.
